    We've been laughing and reminiscing about "Dear Abby's" famous response to the bigot in San Francisco who complained about the increasing diversity in the neighborhood. (She told the writer to improve the neighborhood by moving.)

    Not sure why Holder hasn't acted against these folks. They aren't even remotely exerting Free Speech.

        this particular group is representative of the disease of hate that is permeating our society. The problem of hate groups needs to be faced--fought as an example case--and won.

        This is one of those festering sores in our society that needs to be torn and debrided!

        I've just recently been posting re: NRA. A lot of their "influence" is perceived. The mainstream media perpetuates the myth. Congresscritters fear the NRA because they hear on the TEEVEE that they should.

        We all remember Skokie, and we have this "informed" view that even haters have the right to free speech. But there is a significant difference between a parade (posted, noticed, everyone knows who they are and what they are saying) and a group of haters that interferes with a funeral.

        Obama will be transformational! Just wait.

      This is EXACTLY free speech.
