Whoa there (Off-Topic)

I think it’s important that we don’t ever defend Nazis, and I don’t think that’s something that anyone would disagree with, because it’s not a “slippery slope” for censorship, it’s stopping evil, and I won’t ever apologize for that.

Nobody's defending Nazis. What Kermit is defending is their right, in this country, to free speech. And he's right - it should be defended. Even though they're undeniably evil.

I thought the whole point about them in this Star Wars thread was in regards to their free speech. Which yes, is clearly being defended. Of course I would never imply that Kermit is defending their ideals. That said, this topic is no place for Kermit’s patented Whataboutisms, which he straddles even here.

Our position is simple.

Free speech is an absolute right and never violence. At the same time, bad people are bad. The correct way of dealing with them does not ever include the state.

Do you jive with this or not?
