    The pug video was not cute and was harmful.

    The intent is to disguise "gas the Jews" as humor.

    No.

    Totalitarian collectivist are extremely dangerous because they will justify any action to maintain their power/control.

    I've seen YT vids in which people ... not jokingly, or via pug ... say things like "kill all whites".

    No problemo, apparently. No arrests, no censure from YT.

    And since they're not intrinsically evil, merely stupid, they are unable to see this dangerous trajectory. Because they believe themselves firmly on the moral high ground, anything they do is necessarily 'good'. EXACTLY like religious fundamentalists, despots, and tyrants.

    "YT"? And do you feel you would be tossed into an oven? That's terrible. Is the view good up there on your high moral ground?

    PERSONAL responsibility. Unless you're a fan of Orwell's opus.

    So if someone posts videos saying "kill all whites" or "I want to be a school shooter" and then goes on a massacre campaign killing whites you won't blame the FBI for not arresting this someone?

    I declare that your contributions here are offensive (to someone, somewhere), and therefore illegal.

    :roll:

    Yeah, right.....

    Actually, all of the Rights feelings of righteous feelings of Freedom of Speech go out the window the moment these people hear something like if I were to train my dog to defecate when I say the command "What is the Word of God?"

    I'm asking why this guy is arrested/charged, whatever, for something others are not arrested or charged for.

    But in answer to your question ... 'kill all whites' is not even remotely like the very specific act-fantasy of 'I want to shoot up my high school'. there is a MASSIVE (clinical and therefore actual) difference.

    I'm a leftie, and an atheist - and I don't give a hoot what you teach your dog. Nazi salutes, or Jesus poop.

    The reason 'why' has been given in the OP and on the first page.

    It has been explained.

    You don't like the explanation. I don't care if you are an atheist lefty.

    No sane person can like the explanation. Unless you're happy for your own POV to one day be outlawed, don't go supporting dangerous totalitarian moves. The inconvenient truth is that they won't always align in your favour.

    Our half-witted Virtue Signalling friends never manage to think through the implications quite that far. About as deep as 4 year olds.

    He did not say 'I want to shoot up my high school', he said "I want to be a school shooter" so there is no difference to saying "kill all whites", both are non-specific general phrases and you also stated that the "kill all whites" video was a serious video.

    And as for others not being arrested, Anjem Choudary was sentenced to 5 years prison for posting Youtube videos urging Muslims to support ISIS

    True, they explain the judge's reasoning in the UK. They do not explain Andrew Jackson's here in the US.

    Too bad that the British Parliament and crown prosecution service disagree with you. You clearly do not understand and that is fine for you.

    You seem to be using your countries laws for anger at another countries actions.

    Guess this means don’t be a dick in the UK

    so what if he said "gas the Jews" ? It's Free Speech and he was not doing anything but saying things I disagree with.

    You fail to understand that even hate speech is free speech.
