GUEST,Lavengro An Open Letter to Michelle Shocked (151* d) RE: An Open Letter to Michelle Shocked 19 Mar 13


I know. Hence me saying:

"Of course I don't have the full transcript of what MS said, so it may be that she stepped over the line into incitement to hatred?"

If "stepping over the line" means something to you other than going too far or exceeding the bounds, I apologise. To me it is a commonly understood turn of phrase?

"Dan Schatz didn't censor Michelle Shocked. No one did. Neither he nor anyone else on this thread censored her. I haven't even seen anyone call for censorship."

No, I know, and nowhere did I suggest that was the case. But MtheGM has already pointed that out.

Personally I come from one of the only two ethnic groups that were murdered purely on the grounds of their ethnicity during the holocaust, so I have a bit of an issue with hate based intolerance. I have no time for people who allocate their energies to hating others on the grounds of their race, sexual orientation, disability, religious belief, age etc.

I also spend no small amount of time volunteering in organizations that promote tolerance.

I am sorry to waste space on here talking about myself rather than the topic, but I feel that there has been (by some) a misunderstanding of my post.
