    The only way this will stop

    Is when are these creatures are actually caught and locked up good AND we start putting the fear in them by STANDING UP FOR OURSELVES. Local law enforcement have only demonstrated how to enable the local criminals and improperly ticket the law abiding.

    Locked up for WHAT?

    Locked up for WHAT?

    It’s a free country, they have the right to say whatever they like. The same constitution that protects our right to speak Torah protects their right to speak bad things.

    i never received so much open anti-semitism anywhere that i have lived in the entire world as I did when I lived in crown heights, and all of it from african americans. you know the funny thing? i didn’t used to be racist. living in crown heights actually made me racist. i have to remind myself that not all african americans are hateful people.

    True

    True

    I’m an out of towner and completely relate. I never understood ch friends who were rascist until you come here and live it and get hit by it, now I do have plenty of African American neighbors who are decent people and we exchange pleasant greetings daily but then there are those who have no respect and dignity all the fill themselves with is hatefulness and victims/entitlement mindset. So sad. African American Community, it’s time for you to stand up against this evil in your Community, denounce Al Sharpton, denounce Farrakhan, let it be known that you won’t have people… Read more »

    go after the leaders

    it’s not because they were born with something that makes them do stupid things. The problem is that they have charismatic leaders like Farrakhan that manipulate them from young age. Almost like what Hamas does to the children of Gaza.

    Blacks? Africans?

    Hitler started off killing black people

    No he didn't.

    No he didn't.

    Stop making things up. What black people did he have in Germany?

    If this wasn't so sad, it would be laughable

    If this wasn't so sad, it would be laughable

    If a Jew and a black person was standing in front of HItler, who do you think he would have killed first? Hitler only considered Aryan Christians worthy of living. And black people were considered the demons of the earth, who he hated even more than Jews. Hitler also killed 13 million non Jews. Perhaps African Americans should be better educated

    Hitler wasn’t too fond of black ppl . So that’s a dumb best friend to have . Just saying . Also , freedom of speech . Please don’t encourage the state to police language you dislike . Look I hate that anti Semitic comment, but it IS speech that should be protected.

    Wrong!

    Freedom of speech does not apply if it can incite violence

    That is not true
    Guest
    That is not true

    Incitement means speech that is both objectively likely and subjectively intended to cause the hearer to commit a crime immediately. In other words, whipping up someone’s emotions until he effectively becomes the speaker’s robot and commits the crime that the speaker intended him to commit, without thinking about it first and making a conscious decision to do it. Speech that merely causes the hearer to hate someone, and therefore decide on his own to commit a crime against that person, is not incitement.

    Hate speech, harrassment are not freedom of speech. Please educate yourself.

    No you get educated
    Guest
    No you get educated

    Please educate yourself. There is nothing illegal about saying hateful things and it is absolutely protected by the first ammendment.

    Why are the police investigating?
    Guest
    Why are the police investigating?

    No crime was committed in either case. It’s a free country, and the police have absolutely no right to harass or “investigate” anyone for merely expressing their opinion. From the first reports of the museum incident I had assumed the girl had written on the wall, which is vandalism. But now you say she wrote on a post-it note, and attached it to the wall as she had been invited to do. The fact that we don’t like her opinion doesn’t change that. It is a crime for the police to do anything that would have a chilling effect on… Read more »

    “Hate speech” is not a crime, it is 100% protected by the first amendment. Any policeman who does anything that is likely to discourage someone from speaking hatefully is COMMITTING A CRIME and belongs in prison. And anyone calling for such police action is un-American and should move to Russia or China.

    Speech

    The First Amendment doesn’t protect speech that is likely to incite violence because “fighting words” do not contribute to democratic discourse and because society has a collective interest in reducing violence. Were what the driver said and the girl write fighting words? Would people want to fight them because of what they said? Or, if given the chance and the perpetrators were mature enough, would people want to get into a discussion with them about what they communicated?

    Wrong
    Guest
    Wrong

    First of all, the “fighting words” doctrine is almost certainly no longer good law. The last time the Supreme Court upheld it was in the ’50s and its jurisprudence has changed dramatically since then.

    Second, “fighting words” means words spoken directly to the person who is insulted, and of such a sort that any normal person can be expected to lose his mind and physically attack the speaker. They can’t be spoken to a third party or to a crowd in general, and they can’t be words that only provoke some specific people but not an average person.

    a little history.before world war 2 there was not one afro/american living in germany,the reason being is that hitler ym’s wrote in his book mien kampf that he hates blacks worse than jews.i believe he used the world meaning the lowest of the lowest (some German word).He really despised them,so next time a low life makes an anti semitic remark just remind him of what i wrote.it really works

    A lot of these perps don't even know who "H" was!

    A lot of these perps don't even know who "H" was!

    They just know that the mention of this name is upsetting to Jews. So they use it to feel “powerful” and to get a thrill out of upsetting and scaring a Jew.
