Brooke: Saying "terrorism is good" is preaching terrorism and is protected speech.
Please study and commit to memory the Constitution, especially the parts you don't like. Normal people call those parts "The Bill of Rights."

By the same light, Brooke, your constant preaching against Islam and Illegal aliens could be considered preaching terrorism.. :wink: Need we call 911 and report you?? Should you be kicked out of the country??
Like I said earlier, the thought of some posters here having a gun makes me very nervous...

Brooke: We've hijacked this thread enough. Head back to your Angola thread if you want to discuss this further.
Please provide your authority for your blanket statement that preaching terrorism isn't protected speech.

I wrote; "You have to chalk this up with Obama and Mexicans, you don't like it but there's nothing you can do about it."

Paul responded; "I'm with you until the above statement... how does that fit into your response?"

I was referring to another poster.. We all know who that is... :wink:

Preaching terrorism isn't protected speech Reconquista.

I'll go out on a fragile limb and say it depends. It isn't protected if it is intended to incite immediate action and that action is probable and imminent. "Preaching" terrorism in and of itself with no imminent or probable action as a result is protected speech as I understand it.

Yup. Same as saying we should blow up mosques is. Saying "You bring the dynamite, I'll bring the margaritas" probably wouldn't be protected.

Trog: By the same light, Brooke, your constant preaching against Islam and Illegal aliens could be considered preaching terrorism.. :wink:
That is not funny or shouldn't be joked about Trog because it plays into the mindset that words don't matter, which is something the left has had to revert to because their arguments are illogical.

I don't preach anything. I make common sense arguments against people who make stupid arguments such as giving amnesty to foreign criminals who live in violation of U.S. sovereignty and who commit crimes such as ID fraud, driving without licenses, obtaining government benefits by using fraudulent ID, etc.

Islam is evil, the evidence plays out everyday across the world. High percentages of Muslims in various countries approve of death as the punishment for renouncing Islam for example. You guys need to catch up on your reading and know more about the topics under discussion.

I resent it when you guys think it's funny to render truth, honesty, and facts as irrelevant, when in fact they are crucial to everything in our lives and the key to the success of western civilization.

So the preaching of terrorism is protected as long as it isn't imminent Parrotpaul? Are you serious? What kind of time limits would you think the government would tolerate? :roll:

That isn't what I said, but yes...I believe what I stated is accurate.

Thanks for your fine research, Bev, but the discussion is "preaching terrorism."

Thanks, Brooke, but it's clear to even us second-class citizens who aren't native to this country.

Did anybody catch MSNBC's new low in broadcast "journalism" when they did the live tour of the terrists' apartment, including a tour of the bathroom and baby's room and closet? CNN did the same but delayed and edited. I missed them both but they provided good Twitter fodder under the hashtag #MuslimApartment with folks posting pictures of their own #muslimapartments, #MuslimBackYards, #MuslimCatsSittingInTheirMuslimLivingRooms, etc. No word on if MSNBC got any coverage of the #MuslimUnderwearDrawer or the #MuslimMedicineCabinet but I thought it was tasteless enough without them. And I have a feeling their #lawyers will be working this weekend.

No word on whether or not they plan any tours of Robert Dear's #ChristianTrailer or Adam Lanza's #PsychoKidsBedroom.

Yep...saw it. Tough to understand lots of behaviors that accompany this event.

Someone in media corporateville needs to start a discussion about the difference between news and journalism and entertainment and bimbos. Not much of the former but plenty of the latter.

Parrotpaul, preaching terrorism could also be accurately described as teaching violence and all the variations of that.

Journalists need to feel they did something and discovered something even if it's nothing..
Now they're doing the tear and sympathy circuit. Next the funerals.. :puke:
It's been rehashed so many times now people have already lost interest. On to the next tragedy.
