In general the concept of free speech is a good one. However, it doesn't always infer that it is the wisest option or prudent. There was a near riot in the UK provoked by Muslims taunting returning soldiers. The crowd reacted angrily and much of the focus was on the EDL. However, it is not certain that all of those who were annoyed had anything to do with the EDL.
The EDL is easy to hate as it appears to be made up largely of soccer hooligans who seem to be more in love with beer than anything else. I would like to point out that throughout the history of the USA there have been movements against immigration. However, with the small exceptions of organized crime and terrorists most immigrants do try to live in peace.
The Islamo fundamentalist caliphate goons and their collectivist mentality are going down a dangerous path. If they proclaim any troops on "Muslim land" is an attack on all Muslims. Then the converse of collective guilt of Muslims for 9-11 is applicable. This is not logic I would care to go near. I also want to point out the notion of Iraq as "Muslim" land is interesting because Assyrians who are persecuted lived there long before Islam.
In the USA we are lucky because our immigrants are largely from Latin America, Philippines, China and India. Other than some predatory drug gangs and organized crime most of the people who come here share our values. The exception to this are the communists at Larazza who preach violent revolution. I did enjoy a recent video of communist mendicant Ron Gochez taunting Cubans. Gochez was there on top of a huge hill with a bullhorn shouting slogans with a Cuban flag with an image of Argentinian incompetent butcher Che Guevara. The Cubans climbed
the huge hill tore the flag. Had Commie Gochez not been protected by the police he would have been deservedly tarred and feathered. There is something twisted about commies who call cops "pigs" being saved by cops. The irony is lost on Gochez who as a commie is ignorant by definition.
