So the photo was taken, Universal saw it then tracked down the "kids" to give them the boot?

I wonder how many times kids have flashed gang signs for the bloods, crips or ms13 and nothing has happened to them?





I wonder if these young people are actually white supremacists or they are just ignorant?

Oh wait that is a redundant question...



Still I don't think they should have been thrown out.

No- not really.


A private business has the right to determine what behavior is appropriate and what is not. If you are a business, you don't want to have people doing things that will **** off other visitors (like a Nazi salute).


The people who did the Nazi salute had the right to do so. The theme park also had the right to kick them out.


Free speech does not mean no consequences to that speech. Just like you can say whatever you want in a work place, but you might get fired for doing so.


I am a 100% proponent of free speech, but keep in mind that it goes both ways.

I thought that theme parks like other businesses are free to discriminate against customers if they don't want to serve them. Oh that's right, we aren't talking homosexuals...

I merely used him as an example as he is currently the Canadian PM, and Canada's immigration policy is tougher than the U.S.

But, keep up with the Trump Derangement Syndrome for the next six years .

Discriminating against mere speech is discriminating against speech no matter how you slice and dice it. That's fine to say we don't have free speech on private property, but that doesn't mean the intolerance of mere speech is necessarily a good thing. No one has to agree with it. I won't be supporting Universal Studios, not because I agree with the speech of those banned, but because of the very selectiveness and connotations.
