What is free speech?


The post I wrote about free speech needs some follow up. As far as I’m concerned there really isn’t any. It is proven often in the USA. People are being sued for slander or defamation of character all the time. Some  win their cases and some lose. I don’t know why anyone should be sued for their opinion; an opinion is an opinion. Yet this guy produces a film that causes killings and destruction of property and gets away with it.

I say anyone that produces something or states some thing that would cause riots, killings, destruction of property should be held responsible. If a person can be sued for slander or defamation of character then why shouldn't a person be held responsible for saying or producing some thing that brought killings and destruction of properties? That's the results of that film against the Islamic faith. Sure a person can say what ever he/she wants to say but what about the end result?

Sure we have "free speech" but there are laws and responsibilities attached to it. If someone talks about Christians, do we destroy properties and kill people? No. If it wasn't for a brainless person using free speech to spread his hate. According to the news it has given the terrorist an excuse to riot and kill because the terrorist were prepared and had weapons ready to attacked the embassy and that film gave them the excuse that they needed.
