    I'm with you here. Racists bigots that want to peacefully march and spew their nonsense are protected. They should be protected because you have the same freedom. I've heard people say the government should step in and stop for instance the KKK from marching. It's short-sighted. How can you have free speech if they don't? If you strongly believe the other side of their message should be heard.. you can march too! (and please do.. F- the KKK and most everything they believe in.)

    I agree fully!

    I think many people with good intentions are shortsighted and dont want to accept that the freedoms they value and desire - have to be applied evenhandedly - including to those they would oppose...

    These arrogant Western people need to understand why the NBA choose to be silent. You notice they speak up on issues that are domestic related or in the UNITED STATES. But China ain't the United States. China has its own laws and orders. You can't use your own **** like "FREEDOM OF SPEECH" and apply everywhere like it's nobody business. Westerners apparently think they're the CENTER of the world....that they're superior, that their opinions always right. So when somebody tell them they're wrong. They'll be like, that can't be right...nobody can tell us we're wrong. How can they say freedom of speech is wrong? Well, it is wrong if it doesn't serve in your backyard, but in another land. Now, today China is powerful and able to exert and influence them through the power of financial...other wise, these mother****ers will not stop believing that they're right. They will even try to bomb them or invade them back in the old days like they did with HK. You see, the problem with the Westerners is that they like to stick their noses into somebody's jar instead of their own. If they mind their own business, none of this **** would have happened. Also, they're bunch of hypocrites. They would say things like ohh they're now using financial to influence us, we need to be careful doing business with them. But these mother****ers are using the same influential tactics inside their own country even worst, from media influence from what you should say or not say if you work for a certain network or parties. Financially, they support only certain parties that favor them and reject those that don't and also this extend all the way outside the US, they will do the SAME THING to shut up governments that don't support them and pay those that DO support them. And if China are doing the same thing like lending money to Africa...they'll be like oh no no no, they're being influenced. And about the Huawei 5G, they would cite security issues but at the same time, they're doing the same **** all over the world spying in every government as reveal by Edward Snowden. If you don't see hypocrisy in the Westerners, you're completely illogical.
