Nothing's absolute. Okay? (I don't think I wrote that anyway).

Maybe "No free speech" means something different to you than me.

Maybe it meant something different to the people controlled by the Stasi in the old East Germany.
I wondered if they looked to the West and thought "Oh, they don't have free speech either".
Yeah, but we're not talking about the Stasi, we're talking about a bunch of smug cartoonists who got an innocent maintenance man and a couple of innocent coppers shot.

Maybe, in a world where Free Speech isn't absolute, they could have toned it down a bit and not pissed off lots of people who aren't Islamist dickwads for the sake of some farty notion of "Free Speech".
