    Very well said Halcyon,
    Some of the children on this site throw the word hate around like confetti

    Mommabear – its customary when lifting articles from elsewhere to credit the source.

    Your post above for example is straight from the W.O. site – its just a sensible precaution to credit things lest someone accuse you of plagiarism,which I’m sure wasn’t your intention.

     

    Exactly Gigglebyte;we can often have no indication if the impact of our words on others. A few months ago I saw a young woman in a mall with the most gorgeous blue-green hair,obviously recently done & I couldn’t help telling her how lovely it looked – & I was so glad I’d acted on impulse because her smile was like the sun coming out.

    And unkind comments can sometimes have an adverse effect,too.

    lilith7, fair enough.
    Except I haven’t seen you reminding others for their omissions.
    That’s to come then?

    See that in Bradford, Luton and other British cities the labour party meetings are using segregated seating.

    This is be what the PC culturally sensitive have for years being trying to achieve with great success
    the takeover of the west by this overpowering dogmatic religion and culture.

    Dear me farmer, next thing apartheid will be rearing it’s ugly head again.
    Is this part of the Muslim takeover?

    It is interesting that those who condemn fascism wish to impose another form of the same but instead of being ultra-nationalistic  their focus is  ultra-globalistic. They support the characteristics of   dictatorial power, forcible suppression of opposition and control of industry and commerce.

    In other words they do not oppose oppression but just want to be the oppressors. Freedom is just a meaningless term for them. It is power they want.

    Remember the words of that song? “Freedom is just another word for nothing left to lose.”

    Where did you hear about the segregation at meetings in the UK because Google doesn’t seem to know about it?

    Cheers 🙂

    It occurs to me that the Free Speech Coalition are less about free speech than making a political statement.

    If they really wanted to hear the two speakers they could have used the $50,000 raised to hire an venue and bring the speakers over rather than suing the council.

    Cheers 🙂
