I read people saying things like "all bigots should be flogged and beaten", which is insane. Whatever happened to the American way? The one that says I will defend your right to have an opinion I despise? If your response is "but he threw something on the ice"... well then in that sense its really no worse than throwing anything on the ice. It's not a ****ing hate crime, its a stupid gesture made by someone who may or may not be, but most likely is, a racist. Big deal.
How about if the same imbecile wore a shirt saying "I hate N******", is that ok? Is that consider freedom of speech?
If someone is ignorant then so be it. But sometimes, there will be consequences to one's ignorance.
