Careful the police have already said they will visit people who make comments which are untrue, hurtful, unnecessary or unkind.

None of what I said falls into those categories.

You've got a point there. There's nothing too low for the leftists.

I can't stand living in this country anymore. Since the leftists have seized control we've been on a direct course for the middle ages. This has actually been the final straw for me, I'm learning Russian and moving out to the land of common sense once I've done my degree.

Me too. But while Clinton and Sanders still have a chance of being elected I think it's safer to head for the civilised east.

I'd take anything posted on Breitbart with a pinch of salt tbh, a site notorious for twisting facts to suit their right wing agenda and the article almost seems to imply they're raiding people's homes for simply disagreeing with immigration which I don't think is the case here. Looking at the translation of the original source, these were the homes of right wing extremists who had posted various anti-semitic, racist and other hate on social media and some had guns and drugs in their homes too, they're not just going round raiding the homes of anyone who says one bad word against immigration or migrants ffs, since when did racism and anti-semitism count as free speech?

I believe always acting on them is illegal but expressing the opinion isn't actually illegal.

It's kind of the point of free speech to be able to freely express idiotic and unpopular views

Free speech includes the right to offend. Therefore saying antisemitic or racist thing or things that people find offensive in general are all allowed and protected by free speech. Just because you don't agree with those sentiments it doesn't make them wrong or against free speech.

Not in Germany (or many other European countries) Expressing anti-Semitic points of view is a criminal offense.

So you believe it should be illegal to make a racist or anti-Semitic remark? Punishable by imprisonment?

People criticising this: would you support similar actions against people who had posted extreme Islamist material on the web?
