    Silly question. Are we pretending the first amendment doesn't exist?

    The swastika isn't banned, and no, I don't think the confederate flag is worse than Hitler.

    However, Hitler did do a lot more good for his county (the economy, people) than the considerably did for theirs.

    The first amendment doesn't exist on GREE's private forum, remember?

    This is so dumb. The swastika is an ancient symbol, Hindu or Sikh I believe. It was appropriated by the Nazis as their symbol. Since then fascist right wing groups all over the world have adopted it, even in Russia ironically.

    The Confederate flag should have been buried when they lost the war. Since then it's been used by the KKK and other extremist groups. How do you think it makes black people feel, seeing that rag? Regardless of its past it's now used as a symbol of while supremacy, both overtly and covertly, according to the people flying it.

    It's racist, deal with it and bury the stupid thing.

    Free speech isn't about allowing people to be outright racists.

    I'm no constitution expert, but I believe one has the right to be a racist as long as no laws are broken while being a racist.

    You'd be correct, violin. We don't have thought crimes in the us yet.

    There's a difference to having racist thoughts and expressing them through your words and actions. That's not about having 'thought police' in the USA, just plain common sense. I wouldn't expect a pony to understand that though.

    So you're entitled to think what you like as long as you never say it? Just out of curiosity, do you even recognize how fascist that sounds? I'm not sure if it's worse if you knew what you were saying or not. Either way, if rather have a hundred peaceful racists running around than one of you. You're a terrible person.

    A racist would have two candidates turn up for a job interview, one white, one black. Equal qualifications and experience. Guess who gets the job?

    Unless you're a black person who faces harassment on a daily basis by the cops and racism from people like you, then you shouldn't comment on the subject.

    Someone who has racist thoughts should seek help. Failing that they should keep their nasty views to themselves and not act upon them. You are the terrible person.
