Coming soon to a Leftist police state near you
The good Dutch people of never ending tolerance and diversity have just put one of their politicians, Geert Wilders, on trial for hate speech. The charge? Comparing Islam to Nazis and calling for a ban on the Koran. OK, so it's over the top, not accurate, and inflammatory. So? Look at some of the things said about Christianity. The problem with hate speech, of course, is that it's arbitrary, and can't help but ultimately say 'this person/group is more important than that person/group.' I'm often amazed at how folks confuse a country that allows you to have all the drugs and sex you want with a country that is actually liberal.
