"Freedom of speech means that sometimes incredible assholes win."


Love this quote.  It's from a youtuber that is quite popular, theamazingatheist.  He said it in one of his videos where he posted his view on whether or not the mosque should be allowed to go up in New York near the World Trade Center site.  He said that it falls under freedom of speech, and that's the shitty part about freedom of speech:  sometimes incredible assholes win.  Let me know what you think!

  1. I dunno if the mosque falls under freedom of speech or not. And I agree that freedom of speech breeds assholes. Read: Glenn Beck. But with the mosque, I think that they have the right to build it. They bought the property fair and square. It's their right to put up whatever they want.

  2. Freedom of speech is such a touchy subject. Remember the golden rule, you can't yell "FIRE!" in a crowded theatre. Great post :)

  18. It's not as if all followers of Islam are as extreme as the terrorists. That's like saying all Christians follow the beliefs of Westboro
