  1. Default Armenian Holocaust Denial a crime too? - France nears passage of law

    Yet another attack on free speech from the liberals. Pretty soon it will be illegal to question anything.

    STORY HIGHLIGHTS

    (CNN) -- France's parliament passed a controversial Armenian genocide draft law Thursday, making it a crime to publicly deny the mass killing of Armenians by Ottoman Turks last century, a National Assembly press officer said.

    The bill -- applauded by Armenians -- must now be voted on by the country's Senate. But it has been roundly deplored by Turkey.

    Armenian groups and many scholars argue that starting in 1915, Turks committed genocide, when more than a million ethnic Armenians were massacred in the waning days of the Ottoman Empire.

    "The issue should be researched not by politicians, but by historians," Turkish Parliament Speaker Cemil Cicek said.

    It's unfair to hold France to the same high standards of liberty that we have in America.

    The French are simply not our equal in that respect and never will be.

    The lesson here: If you value free speech don't move to France.

    Europe will be reduced to communicating in grunts pretty soon, then the progressives here will want to emulate them...

    Especially if you don't want your balls groped in a US international airport.

    So much for high standards. High hands, more like it!

    Sure if you ignore the restrictions the USA imposes like "fighting words doctrine"

    Yes! Blame the liberals for everything.

    When are the conservatives going to accept they share the blame. If only 25% of it.

    Likely when Canadians stop butting into our internal matters and constantly bash on American conservatives...
