Could you please provide some documentation to substantiate this notion that the Japanese were considered above reproach back then?

Thanks.
Could you please understand this has nothing to do with criticizing Islam who I get that you don't like? It as everything to do with injuring our troops and civilians in a war zone while we are at war. The guy was warned this would happen. He did it anyway. Act of sedition.

The man injured no troops. He did not take up arms, travel to Afghanistan and shoot anybody. Nobody would have heard of the fool if he were not elevated in importance as he was.

Just because some deranged troglodytes acted as they did, it wasn't he who killed anybody. Your attempts to transfer the responsibility away from the perps and on to him are misguided, and your suggestion that free speech should not exist because you have transferred such responsibility is absolutely chilling in its implications. No longer would murderers, rapists and child molesters be responsible for their actions -- it would be those who criticized them -- and so it is those who criticized them who should be criminalized.

SO SaltWn my friend,

Could you give me a list of Seditious speech you would outlaw at this point in this never ending "WAR"?


No public burning of Koran's I'd guess would be 1.
But what else should be verboten?


And what should be the punishments?

ANd who exactly are we at war with?
Radical Islam?
Just Islamic terrorist?
Angry Islamasist?
Islam in general?
Muslim looking people in general?

BTW what's the exit strategy on this war?

I wonder

In other words,... The troops need to perpetually be overseas fighting an abstract concept (terrorism) on behalf of our freedoms, so a Statist thug like Lindsey Graham can suggest that freedom should be curtailed at home in order to protect the mission.

Conflict much?
Its a conflict of their oath of office to infringe on the constitution. They swear to support and defend the Constitution. Any violation of that should result in a permanent ban from any elected of appointed position.

We will lose our freedom via an imposition from within courtesy of statists like lindsey graham who respond much more affirmatively to political correctness than liberty.
Islam as well as faiths and cultures throughout the globe roll their eyes at our false morality.
Until we become a moral people again, old religions like Islam will fight us. We have lost our way.

This guy needs to be sent packing. I bet the people of SC are thoroughly disgusted. This is chilling, and to be coming from a faux "republican" at that.
