Goodbye to the First Amendment

41% of Americans want to criminalize “hate speech”

"Free speech means being able to express an honest opinion—in case you didn’t know—and my honest opinion is that Wahhabi Islam is such an obvious mental affliction, that science ought to be looking for a cure.
It’s a truly horrible, heartless and cruel ideology that despises human kind, especially the female half, and I believe its presence on this planet is a stain on all humanity; and when it finally passes, as one day it surely must, because nothing that unnatural and inhuman could possible last forever, its memory will linger like a bad smell, as a warning for generations to come; like a ghostly gibbet by the roadside of history, a bony finger of death, beckoning us back to a more brutal and primitive past. It’ll serve as a grim reminder of what happens to human beings when religion is allowed to go too far."
