I guess I never really understood radicalism until I read this

Post  scott1328 on Sun Oct 28, 2012 4:32 am

One of the most disturbing posts defending censorship I have ever read:

In response to the topic "Is censorship ever justified" SimpleFlower had a lot to say. this

I'm actually all for the State fining, taxing, and hauling off to labor camps even, assholes who think their free speech entitles them to use their mouths to inflict trauma on other human beings. It was pretty traumatic getting called the f-word hundreds of times before I ever got into the 5th grade, and, fyi, physical harassment accompanied this verbal harassment-and it usually does but it doesn't have to). In fact it was a constant hostile environment. Also, it was pretty traumatic to have to constantly endure being called the t-word in online spaces ruthlessly, in addition to the f-word, while being stalked, harassed, rape threated, and even death threated. I'm all for a society where kids (and adults too) who do that sort of thing get confronted by the state and have their heads kicked in ruthlessly and thrown in juvvie or jail if need be where they can whine about free speech in the dungeon with all the other assholes.

"Usually when someone like Hitchens (who was a neo-conservative, along with Harris and Dawkins)"

Hitchens, Harris and Dawkins are neo-conservative????????

I wonder what color the sky is, where this person lives!

Having read Hitchens I strongly disagree he was a status quo proponent or a conservative of any kind.
