Let them protest for Sharia all they want and lets see where it gets them here in the US. Sure burning poppy may offend people but so do those asshole Christians who go protest at fallen soldiers funerals.

Our rights are not guaranteed to protect what is popular because that is almost always granted since it is popular. It is the protection of those rights when they are used in an unpopular way that is the true test of said rights worth.

Frankly, you are starting to sound just as un-American as them.

Ok, don't tell anyone I told you this, ok? I am secretly on his side awaiting the glorious day when he implements Sharia so I can have a whole litter of women that must obey me. Oh man I can't wait for the orgies with me and my 6 (at least right? maybe 8-10 eventually) wives.

What's the OP going to do when he discovers that the Government brought in Nazis in the aftermath of WWII to build the space program?

No way, the state department and Comrade Obama are ours. The grand socialist commie conspiracy still has the patents on his pharoh DNA, we even cloned him. Step off our victory.

Or is this just another in your long line of failures in knowing what free speech is? Or is it another in your long line of Muslims should not have the rights you advocate for others?

It's really getting hard to keep track of all your hypocritical bullshit.
Still waiting... I'm certain you'd want to clarify your apparent hypocrisy given how many times you've advocated for limitless freedom of speech.

I have defended the 1st Amendment adamantly and dont support restricting it but you're forgetting that the US Constitution doesn't apply to England. Also how come you didn't mention the cases in Europe where people had free speech violated

This article has some cases of free speech under attack

1st Amendment doesn't apply in Canada but...

Oh wait. I see it. That was someone acting AGAINST Muslims.

Still haven't explained why you are advocating to limit free speech for Muslims.

Yes, In that case I didn't mention the 1st Amendment but just free speech which every country should have.

The group of radicals in England burned a Poppy on November 11, does that not seem wrong to you?

Right or wrong morally is not relevant. They have every right to do it, don't they?

Again, are you saying that the Muslims you are ranting about should not have had the right to express themselves in that way? It's a simple yes or no answer.

how is this possibly something that anyone could ever get worked-up over?

we know you hate muslims and would rather they all live in cages in a zoo or a museum, but try to be a little less obvious with your hypocrisy when trying to advocate free speech for everyone (except brown people).

I'm not sure you're getting it...

They. Burned. A. Poppy.

...and were probably recruited by the State Dept. to do so.

You are just going to dodge this entirely aren't you?

Again, do you not agree that these Muslims had every right to burn the poppy if they wanted to?

There is nothing wrong whatsoever about burning a poppy. Except to fascists like yourself.
