Is it just me ...


... or has anyone else noticed that the same "free speech" warriors who have been shrieking insanely over the unfairness of the fascist jackboot of the Canadian Human Rights Commission quashing their right to say offensive things ... are the very ones who are going batshit ballistic because other people have said offensive things?

I just thought that needed to be said.

don't forget deletions of comments that they don't agree with, even if the commenter didn't say anything vulgar...
That's always a good demonstration of their 'free-speechiness'...

I've seen better logic from dead badgers...


Why to all the neo-cons espouse violence as a solution? Could it be that they are terminally stupid ass-monkeys?

The Duck Man said...

Well, maybe if us bastard commie pinko leftist marxist homosexual... uhhh, and neo-nazi now, right?

Er, anyways, maybe if we conformed to their way of thinking, we could say whatever we wanted. Just so long as we don't say anything else.

You know, anything intelligent.

It's the last vestige of the inane--when obfuscations, rants, lies, and at last threats no longer work, what's left?
Escalation, baby--nuke the planet from orbit.

*ugh* Don't even bring it up. They advance the morally incoherent argument about property rights and some distinction-without-a-difference between State and Private agency to defend their own censorship, rather than be honest: they support freedom of expression less than anyone else. What they want is the freedom to be listened to without challenge.

There's also the old distinction between civility and decency, but I've given up on that.

Don't be stupid, CC. Surely even you know the difference between "going batshit ballistic because other people have said offensive things" and whining to a "Human Rights" Commission run by idiots with the power to make someone's life an expensive hell when you feel they've offended you.

Cameron Campbell said...

As opposed to self appointed idiots who are threatening someone's livelihood and/or life?

"whining to a 'Human Rights' Commission run by idiots with the power to make someone's life an expensive hell when you feel they've offended you."

citations, please.

JR said...

Citations? You don't get out much do you? These should keep you busy: One, two

KEvron said...

lol! couldn't find any examples beyond ezra eh? did you happen to notice that your second link is for a book he is selling?

epic fail.

KEvron said...

"You don't get out much do you?"

this from the chucklehead whose only two "citations" where about ezra.

for future reference, chucklehead, proper citiations are to be unbiased accounts. and they shouldn't be adverts at all.

JR said...

If you weren't such a lazy twit you'd read the citations and find that Ezra covers all the cases not just his own - and he includes lots of references. So get busy.

"for future reference...proper citations are to be unbiased accounts." Very funny:) You pompous ninny.

CC said...

Yo, JR! Can you and Ezra just get a room or something? Think of the children.

KEvron said...

"So get busy."

i'll wait for the movie....

"Very funny"

nothing more ludicrous to you lo0t than an objective report.

"You pompous ninny."

you can't see it, but i'm making a boo-boo face.

KEvron said...

still waiting, btw, for those citations; you did say "an expensive hell".

KEvron

wv = "explogio".

KEvron said...

oh, and i couldn't help but notice that you failed to address my reservations regarding book adverts as citations.

(cue keyboard cat)

POmpous NInny
