Anyhow, this is a great example of freedom of speech.

People are free to say and do what they want. And businesses and other organizations are free to act accordingly.

I'm glad they were kicked out. They needed to be kicked out. Anyone who is a Nazi or is sympathetic to the Nazi ideology is a disgusting individual. I know enough about history to understand that I don't want that kind of individual around me.

I wouldn't go this far based on an isolated occurrence. I don't complain every time I'm at Universal and see snapshots of minorities on roller coasters clearly flashing gang gestures, for example. Could symbolism be inappropriate to some degree (regardless of its source and intent)? Absolutely. Is ignorance, stupidity, or asininity in and of itself [always] something to elevate to the extreme? Absolutely not.


I might be more sympathetic to the response if the Yahoo article were able to verify that the folks in the picture were actively anti-minority and caused additional (and direct) trouble at the theme park.


Regardless, I suppose, it's the prerogative of the business to give 'em the boot for any (or no) reason and I'm perfectly fine with that in principle.

And I don't want intolerant control freaks around me or in my country.

Did you ever think they may just have been kidding around, and not actual Nazi's nor embrace Nazi ideology? People are WAY too sensitive today about gestures, symbols, hats, flags, statues, murals, paintings, etc. We are becoming a Police State.

If Universal has had such stuff in their movies, hypocrisy much?

It's weird. Any other time if some young punks were misbehaving Conservatives would be wondering what's wrong with kids today and why didn't their parents give them a good smacking.

Yet for some reason I barely see any of this from the thread???

No discrimination here. Freedom of Association includes not associating with whomever you choose not to.

Yeah but it's only allowed or accepted to not associate with whites who want real freedom of association.
