Depends on which direction it's facing, iirc.

No, it's more like, "then those Muslim cultures are wrong"


Said no SJW ever.

Also wait, wait, wait, are you saying that the Swastika is not a hateful symbol? I just... really want to be clear here.


As a tangent, yes of course; though you do get exceptions, e.g. Hindus, mid-70s punks trying to be generally confrontational, etc. But reread; I actually said a modern symbol.

Is this real hate or just a joke?

I personally enjoy offensive jokes. I particularly enjoy the looks you get from racist jokes or dead baby jokes. That is the funniest part. We spend too much time trying to protect people's feelings and not enough time trying to improve people's lives. Feed everyone, medically treat everyone, educate everyone, pay everyone a fair wage, and stop worrying about hurt feelings.

Of course it's free speech, but when you lose your job and reputation and ruin your life don't blame free speech. At least the government didn't throw you in jail right?

Not sure if you're being sarcastic or not, but basically this. Free speech doesn't mean you're immune to any consequences it might result in. If your company decides that your actions will bring negative publicity to them, then that's something you'll have to weigh before deciding to speak out.

Only if the speaker can be identified personally.

I don't consider people writing stupid sh*t hiding behind the computer screen is making a "speech"

In regards to the TC's question, are you implying that trolling or expressing controversial views anonymously should be illegal? Or are you simply calling those people cowards?
