So Slate is officially trolling now?

Fuck this guy
Meh, they're not the only ones looking to censor this type of stuff. Various justifications for censorship pop up whenever the Muzzies get upset at something. If you look around, there are plenty of mainstream outlets running opinion pieces saying pretty much the same things. Maybe less overtly, but the general message is "insulting Islam is not a right".
Here's another one I found just by randomly clicking around:
Does LA Times count as mainstream media?
I had a huge fight with a friend of mine over this story. His Israeli and very anti radical Islam and shit, but I just can't get him to accept that even speech that he sees no value in should be protected. People think they can set arbitrary lines for what speech is acceptable and what is not. "Oh, South Park is OK because it's satire. Piss Christ is OK because it's art. But Innocence of Muslims has no value other than to offend, and hence should be banned." How can intelligent people think like that? The law doesn't work that way. You can't assign an arbitrary metric of "inherent value" to certain kinds of speech. Of course his counter attack is: "Well, should Holocaust deniers be allowed to spout their shit?" YES. Of course they should. And their right to say it didn't happen is the same right I invoke to call them moronic assholes.
Another argument of his was that the law lacks "common sense." WHOSE common sense? Some people's common sense dictates that abortion is murder and that offending Jesus should be criminal. Should we trust them to make the decision? It's just stupid and I'm frustrated that they don't understand this.
No matter what you do or say, these assholes are gonna burn shit.
Looks like he has some support!
This would be a great idea. Finally getting around to imprison those who merely "offend" those with their words and actions. Don Imus, Kramer, and O&A would be serving life sentences right about now...because even race (blacks, namely) falls in that psychological harm category. Even our words on this message board would be illegal.
I really hate this planet.
We call those people "dumbfucks". Tough shit for them
It's ironic that these are the same people who sneer when you say the U.S. is the best country in the world. Quod erat demonstrandum, shitdicks.
The trendies set this precedent by giving up privacy rights because of the scary muslims. Now so called right wing trendies are crying because the left wing trendies want to end free speech to protect us from the scary muslims.
That movie is shit. This chick is the real deal and really doesn't give a fuck what the muzzies think
Is this ok? All wackbag members mothers' sucked a dick at least once in their life and took a batch of baby batter in the cunt. hows that for free speech. I bet it is true too
i'm instituting a new rule..... you use the word trendy outside of your playpen and you get a vacation. this post alone would get you 3 all expense paid ones as it is.
I like it.
Who is surprised that the left is against free speech?
Question: Is that word banned in all variations such as "hipster"?
BTW I do love the irony of banning words in a free speech thread.
Not me. To most of the left, "hate speech" is a lazy catch-all phrase for almost anything they disagree with.
Is this new? They try to use every tragedy to silence free speech. They tried to blame right wing speech for the shooting in Arizona but the guy turned out to be an atheist commie.
You're a real cunt.
Dude, just follow orders. You use trendy to be cunty and its annoying. Not to speak for Buster or any other mod but cut the shit.
Hear, hear, Mr. H!
PS - No more clappy hands? And I still want :icon_cool back...
The same could be said about negative speech about Islam, some are doing it just to be cunty and it annoys some people. Surly you must see the irony of banning words in a free speech thread.
