I was thinking about joining the FSP
« on: March 16, 2006, 07:28:19 pm »

But I noticed you said that people who are bigoted or racist should not join. While I am neither of those myself, I believe that people have a right to be bigoted and racist. Will the FSP work in suppressing that right, or is that statement merely a way to filter out potentially harmful candidates for the FSP?

Personally, I don't care.  Most of the people I know in my current state (TN) are racist.  As long as they don't use government force to enforce or encourage their sick thoughts, I don't care.  I look to racism like smoking.  They are both terrible things and I tell people to not do them on my property.  I think it is much worse to be a commie, for example.  I mean they want to steal all of the property on Earth and give it to their friends >:(  WTF!

If you know a racist that wants to join, tell them to keep it to themself.  I am pretty sure the FSP would kick out someone that said they were a FSP member and than made racist comments.  Either way, you can always move to NH and work for freedom with out joining the FSP.

I believe that people have a right to be bigoted and racist.

But people do not have an inalienable right to join the FSP.  Because they're so repugnant, racists, terrorists, and pedophiles would drive away more support than they'd bring in.

The government should not punish people for being bigoted or racist, but the FSP as a private organization does not want people who promote bigotry or racism to join.

Does that mean the FSP has taken a position?  ;D
