Former US Ku Klux Klan leader, David Duke, has been arrested by the Czech police Friday and faces up to three years behind bars
Duke is accused of the crime of Holocaust denial and the promotion of movements seeking suppression of human rights.
The official cite of David Duke confirms the arrest and has issued a lengthy statement blaming the Czech authorities of issuing false accusations and of tyranny....
"Denial of Holocaust is a crime in the Czech Republic, punishable by up to 3 years behind bars."
Oh, that's rich coming from a failed communist state like the Czech Republic! Where is freedom of speech? Why is it people can't say truthfully what they think?
Vacuous bullies on college campuses, who couldn't score in a debate with a Teletubbie, proclaim their feigned concern about "racism" and "bigotry" as an excuse to attack people expressing opposing beliefs. Likewise, Jeannine Garofalo maligned Americans as "racists" for attending "Tax Day Tea Parties," and homosexual activist Perez Hilton attacked Carrie Prejean, "Miss California," as a "dumb b**** for speaking in support of traditional marriage.
"Oh, that's rich coming from a failed communist state like the Czech Republic! Where is freedom of speech? Why is it people can't say truthfully what they think?"
Denying the holocaust is a punishable crime in Germany, too. I don't know what the Czech thinking may be, but the Germans feel that the younger generation should know all about it in order to prevent a recurrence. They don't want to hush it up.
I don't remember the details, but it was on the news just recently about a case where a catholic priest was denying the holocaust, and it cost him his job. The Vatican got caught up in it, and the Pope took a lot of criticism over it.
Then, too, this former Kju Klux leader should have gotten shot down by our own law enforcement, let alone anyone else's.
The Czech Republic has no business jailing US citizens. David Duke is the sexiest man in the universe. He has some interesting ideas and that is no reason to put him in jail. Since when is it considered a "hate crime" to disagree with the politically correct public opinion? Many people hold peculiar and outlandish ideas, that's no reason to jail them. If it was, half the people on earth should be jailed and "re-educated" to uniformly believe the crapola the Liberal media is feeding them. How about going after the real perpetrators of violence? Militant Islamists come to mind.
People believe all sorts of nonsense, it is not a reason to slap them with punitive damages unless they have somehow caused damage to someone else. Punishing people for what they think or what they believe without harming anyone else is ridiculous. It is the worst kind of dictatorship. Europe has been this way for years, and it is spreading to the US and the rest of the world, more's the pity! Why not go the whole hog and let Hugo Chavez and his ilk take over the world? Liberals are desperate idiots.
"Since when is it considered a "hate crime" to disagree with the politically correct public opinion?"
About as long as burning crosses and negro houses of worship, flogging blacks, etc. The KKK was one of the worst bigoted and law-violating organizations ever to tread American soil.
And if a citizen of some other country broke our laws, I'm sure you'd say that our police have the right to arrest him, and our courts to sentence him. One of the oldest axioms in law is that ignorance is no excuse. Citizenship, in these cases, is irrelevant.
"Politically correct" has developed into a clichГ© of worthlessness. Nothng is "correct" for political reasons. I, for one, am not prepared to massacre the English language and use a horrible word like "chairperson" in my everyday speech or writing, nor am I going to bother with "he/she"-ing everything. The applicable rules of language have been around for centuries, and few are prepared to amend them to suit small minorities.
You don't see men banging down doors to get into women's clubs, do you? But a men's club is "Discriminatory" and not "politically correct". Phooey!
David Duke has not strung up and Czech citizens that I know of, so why is the Czech Republic planning to put him in jail? He has done nothing wrong. The KKK has not perpetrated any negro lynchings in years. It is the same as jailing one of your prophets because years ago some of them practiced polygamy. It is ridiculous to keep discriminating against David Duke and the KKK for things some of them did a hundred years ago, just as ridiculous as persecuting the LDS for polygamy.
The Pope has some nerve disciplining a priest for not believing in the Holocaust when he himself believes that Jesus was the son of God. Persecuting people for the things they believe is the worst kind of dictatorship.
You're worse than the weather vane on the barn. The compass points remain constant, but the chicken turns with every wind!
"He has done nothing wrong" Under Czech law he did. And were he in Germany, he would have done here, too.
And as far as persecuting people for what they believe, what aout that months-long tirade you gave me about my Church? HYPOCRITE!
"And if a citizen of some other country broke our laws, I'm sure you'd say that our police have the right to arrest him, and our courts to sentence him."
Only if he ACTED OUT on his illegal ideas and harmed someone in the process.
Why is Reverend White (the Obaminator's ex-preacher) not in jail for preaching hatred against white people? Why is it OK to put David Duke in jail, but not Reverend White? Because it is against the law to commit hate crimes against blacks, but not against whites? What kind of fcuked-up Liberal agenda is this?
"Under Czech law he did. And were he in Germany, he would have done here, too."
What exactly has he DONE? How exactly has he HARMED any Czech citizen? The guy has ideas and beliefs. That's no reason to put him in jail. The Czechs just elected a communist government. They are IDIOTS. This is not the Middle Ages, we don't burn witches anymore, we don't persecute people for their beliefs, unless they ACT OUT on them and lynch niggers.
"And as far as persecuting people for what they believe, what aout that months-long tirade you gave me about my Church? HYPOCRITE!"
I am your favorite sparring partner, admit it! You love me!
Seriously, just because I was expressing an opinion about your church without actually harming any Mormons in the process, now I should be jailed? I don't believe Joseph Smith was a prophet, so now I should be jailed? David Duke doesn't believe in the Hollocaust, so now he should be jailed? Idiot Czech communists.
David Duke was not arrested, he was expelled from the Czech Republic. He was invited there to give lectures, but the communists who have hijacked the Czech government expelled him. Idiots. I knew they couldn't put him in jail just on SUSPICIONS.
You are beginning to sound like a ranting right wing radical ;) Now we all know that the leadership of the KKK just went a "little" bit pass just putting white sheets and expressing some beliefs. Let us say they were not exactly on the legal side.
What do you care if these asses fry in an Czech jail ;) Anyone who destroys a perfectly good white bed sheet deserves to go to jail, there a 1000000 of Africans without sheets, its a crime to make holes.
