  • Still can't believe no-one's driven a pickup truck through a whack of WBC protest marchers at 80 mph yet -- not that someone should -- just wondering in amazement that no-one has, yet, is all.

    • @michael567 On the other hand, Im surprised that no one has jumped out of a van and shot every one of the assholes at a cemetery.
      They were supposed to come to our National Cemetery here is Chatt. and when they received 100's of death threats, they decided that they were too busy to come here. Ha ha ha ha. I am still waiting for some "Dad" to do this. Im retired Army as you know, with 2 sons that are lifers. I guarantee you. They, the WBC assholes would never leave that Cemetery if it More..

    • @michael567 And our courts protect them. If anyone, and I wish they would, especially here on this site, would read and study Freedom of speech, they would see it is an absolute mess. Where do their and my rights start and end? According to the laws of the US, there are limitations to that Freedom of speech. What is funny to me is that Canada has banned the WBC from entering because of "Hate Speech". But our US Supreme court feels it necessary to allow our freedom of speech to hate mon More..

      Well said! The thing about freedom of speech, is that some abuse that freedom, which results in others - the family of a fallen soldier, for example, having their freedoms encroached upon. So, there's no such thing as absolute freedom to do as you wish, because there will always be someone else who's freedom is being trampled on. Over here in the UK, if there was someone like that, we could take out a Court injunction preventing them protesting at a funeral.

      Yeah, we're all for freedom of speech here in Canada, but that WBC shit don't fly here at all any more than Jew bashing or Muslim bashing. Our "Hate Speech Law" is an can of worms to say the least, but when applied "judiciously" and fairly by "right thinking" people (therein lay the trouble), it occasionally works, as with shit talkers like WBCs.
      Hell, there's ettiquete and manners to be observed, especially at funerals. These fuck heads wouldn't last a day More..

    • @Yoc I just don't get what your problem is. They make money because they are talented enough for enough people to pay money to hear and see them and judging by the crowds they draw they are extremely talented. You don't care for their music? No problem. There are groups I don't care for but then I don't watch videos titled with those groups name on them. Also, FF is a group of good guys.
