Free Speech For All, Even The Stupid


Some yahoo was sent to prison in Austria for three years for denying the holocaust. He's not the sort of guy I look to defend, but since when does a mere dumbass opinion necessitate a prison sentence? Our Man in Washington, George Will has a good piece on the sad events here. A Dane said during the recent troubles there, "Free speech is free speech is free speech".
As a graduate of UCONN I had first hand experience with the speech police, who in the name of tolerance and diversity are among the least tolerant people on the planet. A pox on them, may the be perpetually annoyed at the sound of their own breathing.

Thanks Dexter I was about to order a mirror to hang on my chest so that I can see myself as I go about my business, like vanity in the original Bedazzled.

Jane said...

Are yall making fun of me???

El Duderino said...

Not at all Jane, so far you are my one and only fan. I'll try to live up to your estimation of me.

Jane said...

The remake of Bedazzled never happened. Like Caddyshack 2 and Another 28 Hours. And the soon to follow CLerks 2.
