Ah, the Holy War has begun. Inquisitors, sharpen your swords, and get ready to cut some tongues out. This is EXACTLY the behavior that anyone who claims to be extropic or an extropian (big or little E) should be opposed to at any cost. As said by some very wise men, freedom of speech is only really free if the most objectionable speech is protected, not just that which is acceptable to the norm.

Go directly to Aushwitz, do not avoid Kristallnacht, do not collect civil rights.
