    I sometimes forget that other countries don't have the first amendment. Anyone know statistics on what countries have anything similar to the Bill of Rights?

    It really is amazing what a complete lack of freedom of speech and expression exists in france.

    At least the judgment was small. In the US she would have been fined Millions.

    Tejon, :D

    Wow, when I saw this story this morning, I thought about how much we take the First Amendment for granted.

    is it ironic to anyone else that this ruling took place in the same country where muslim girls aren't allowed to wear scarfs in public schools anymore? Apparently "inciting racial hatred" is illegal, but practicing racial hatred isn't? :rolleyes:

    Well, if I read the article right, the extremist segment of the Muslim world are responsible for those heinous acts, and do wish harm upon all "infadels". Its not like she declared that we should go on a jihad against all of Islam.


    I really dont get the reactions of some people when people point out facts for what they are. God forbid if someone points out that non-white people are trying to commit genocide because of a doctorine or dogma they subscribe to. Anglo-Saxons dont have a monopoly on hate.:rolleyes: :banghead:

    The Froggies ought to scour their history books to eliminate hate words from the 1940's like boche.

    It's by no means a recent development.

    Well, there's hairy Islamo-facists, and then there's women like Brigette Bardot.

    I know where my vote's going.

    I think she's probably gone off the deep end with her animal rights stuff but in her younger days she could have excited anything that wasn't dead.

    If Purcells or Bird had said anything in France it would have been guillotine time.

    By the way, why do people who speak their minds on any subject always feel it necessary to start apologizing when the thought police stick their noses in? Doesn't anyone have cojones any more? Male or female? :fire:

    The problem is, she's right.

    France is facing growing problems with Muslim radicals and they're scared stiff about it.
