Do you think people should be prosecuted for anti-Muslim speech?


Loretta Lynch wants to prosecute anyone who talks smack about Muslims. I am NOT saying that it is okay to do that, or that I would, because I don't do that, but the point I am trying to make is that--1. Is this not a violation of the 1st amendment? 2. What about other groups, like Christians, Jews, and even gays, other races, etc--where does it stop, and should it stop? and 3. As long as nobody is planning to physically hurt anyone, should it be punished with such severity? Are people becoming too thin-skinned?

    Not a very good idea. In such a "free" society , anyone could yell "fire" in a crowded theatre with impunity. You could tell a retarded person to jump out of a window and let the Easter Bunny (waiting 10 stories below) catch them, etc.

    Or what about Black Live Matter chanting "What do we want? Dead police! When do we want them? Now!" or "Pigs in a blanket, fry like bacon." Thank you for your answer. You made some good points.

    I agree! - Regardless of who it is directed at, or spoken by, if one is inciting violence and discrimination against any particular race/religion/orientation - should be prosecuted.
