Bill C-304: Hate Speech Clause's Repeal Gives White Supremacists Rare Moment Of Glee

“Actually anger would be the logical answer as would a lack of compassion, especially for someone that went through something like that. I understand absolutely and completely what you're saying and I understand that it comes from a genuine place from the heart. I don't necessarily believe that the repeal of this law is a demonstration of a lack of compassion. Just because people can write of say things that are racially inflammatory doesn't make them right. I'm just confused why we need government interference to monitor this sort of thing. The simple solution is if you don't agree with what is written, don't read it. Personal experiences and feelings aside, the real issue here is this bill. Here is something perhaps you could explain to me. If this law that is in place right now is such a staunt bulwark in stopping bullying and other such things, why did it not save Amanda Todd?”

“Without laws the police can not lay charges. Ignoring it doesn't make it go away it only makes it grow into acceptable behaviour. It takes a long time to change behaviours, look at drinking and driving, rape and other social issues. We are making progress but only because we have acted.”

“That is where you could not be any more wrong. I grew up on the receiving end of hate you could not possibly imagine. I was a Jehovah's Witness until the age of 14, and as a result, was bullied absolutely mercilessly from grade 1 all the way to grade 9. There was no law to protect me, no solution, no administrators to intercede and help, and certainly no policy. The same was the case with Amanda Todd. You can't make a law that says people have to act a certain way. Anti-bullying laws are just as useless as gun control laws. Laws are only applicable to people that are willing to have them applied to themselves. All of the anti-bullying laws and zero tolerance nonsense didn't help me and it didn't help Amanda Todd either, or the countless other victims of those situations. The only thing that stopped me from being bullied was the day I finally stopped trying to get help from teachers and parents and just simply started throwing punches. The day you grab some ill-mannered little snot and beat their head off the floor until they stop kicking is the day you're going to be left alone. (Granted that's an extreme reaction but I hope you get where I'm going with that)”

“I'm sorry for your experience but anger is not the answer neither is a lack of compassion for others.”

“I would actually respond to that but I don't think I could express myself monosyllabically enough for you to understand. Keep trolling though.”

“I agree absolutely and completely. But shouting "fire" in a crowded theater is not an expression of free speech, it's just plain stupid. You can't legislate stupid. You also can't legislate behaviour or thought. That in itself is a violation of the right to freedom of choice. But you're right, balance is the key.”
