Stamp: One Way Speech by 8manderz8 Stamp: One Way Speech by 8manderz8
It's interesting how some people occasionally think that freedom of speech means that THEY get to have their say, and that it means that NOBODY ELSE can say anything about what they said.

Freedom of Speech isn't a one way street.

Yes, you are free to have your say. But that doesn't mean that I have to sit by and hold my tongue. No, if you say something particularly stupid, people are gonna call you out on it. It might offend you or make you angry, but baby, that's freedom for ya.

Well, this sums up two of my biggest YouTube arguments. They put my arguments/opinions down as retarded, yet think theirs is fact. I may have faltered of had one or two weak arguments at one point in each, but I still kept to my arguments, and was backed up by other users as well.

"Freedom of speech means freedom to shout whenever, wherever and whatever you want, and the other person has to listen to you. And if anyone dares to shout back at you, that person is infringing upon your "freedom of speech". And freedom of speech becomes secondary when large amounts of that speech are critical of you. Once this happens, unity is what becomes important."

Freedom of speech means the U.S government can't completely shut you down. Private citizens do what the hell they want. Clearly this isn't /always/ a good thing, but it usualy works.

You said "you people are trying to shut our protesters up." I'm not understanding what you mean, who are you associating me with and why are they "trying to shut our protesters up"? You'll have to be more specific when you leave comments here otherwise it comes off as just random words.

yeah, awesome stamp! I get irritated by da nazis for example who enjoy their freedom of speech and insult others

I think that in fact there must be a limit even to a freedom to say what you want

:iconsaaally:
Saaally Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2013
interesting point! i think the 'limit' would be education. you can speak your mind up but you should be reasonable and not offensive o .o i think if you follow those rules you'd be fine

and by reasonable i mean, don't bitch about shit when you have no point at all, or bash at one person for all flaws in a fandom they like. [for instance, one may not like fury art, but go around hating on every furry work is absurd as hell. and even stuff like child pornography, that we all should be against, we can still speak against it without being offending the artist] that's not using free speech, it's abusing it, and being a douchebag :dummy:

Oh really? Jim Carey calls gun owners heartless mother fuckers. Is he attacked legally? No. He simply becomes even less popular. Freedom of speech.
Mark Levin calls homosexuality unnatural. He received no repercussions legally. He simply becomes unpopular with those he sees as unnatural. Its called freedom of speech, and I honeatlydont care about the so-called dignity of our unlawful president, and will say what I wish about him. He will do nothing because I HAVE A RIGHT TO SAY WHAT I WANT. So screw the dignityof aanother

"rightwing trash radios raising hell" qualifies as hate speech. You can say it without repercussion from the law. Therefore its free speech. Logic.

I listen to it on a regular basis. Usually, john justice and James t Harris speak about the foolishness of the government in passing bills to fix roads and no roads getting fixed, idiots doing stupid things, hipocricy of Santorum in lying to get coated in then changing his colors, and our border not being protected from invaders. We should at least stem the flow of drug and human slave trafficking,though I honestly think we should legalize, tax and regulate it. Mark Levin speaks about theidiots in congress not dong their job and how the polititians twisted words around in order for obamacare to be put in place. Limbaugh, Savage and those like them are not truly considered serious. Most of their supposed "hate speech" is in conversations when they get attacked by a gay rights activist, abortionist, or unreasoning democrat and they call them idiots after hanging up on them because the guest is talking over them.

Oh um, to add to the
"Women should never have been aloud to vote" thing.

If women should never have been aloud to vote, than african Americans should never have been aloud to vote.

Yeah, that's one thing that I thought was particularly interesting - the guy's african, and he was saying women shouldn't be allowed to vote. I don't know if he realizes that not so long ago, people were saying the exact same thing about people of his race. It's pretty funny how easy it is to forget what achievements have been accomplished by the people before you, isn't it? :no: Maybe he should remember that next time he's going of on his almost comedic "women be votin" rants.
