ding dong the witch is dead: 1 point 3 hours ago One of the best things about living in Europe is that most of the right-wing rhetoric you hear in America is very much against the law here. Calling Islam "uncivilised" or saying that gay marriage isn't really marriage would get you charged with inciting hatred. Suggesting that people should buy guns "for self-defence" would be considered inciting violence, which carries serious penalties as well. We're also finally starting to seriously crack down on climate change deniers and anti-vaxxers and many European countries have laws that prohibit insulting or offending people in general. Germany has a law against disparaging the memory of deceased persons, so the crude "ding dong, the witch is dead" rhetoric coming from the US when a celebrity dies would be very much illegal. Childish name-calling and lying about people is not allowed here either, as a woman in France was recently given defamation charges for commenting "she's a liar" on a YouTube video of a politician giving a speech Is our freedom of expression limited? Not in the least. We are guaranteed freedom of expression through European law. Rather than restricting freedom of expression, these laws simply ensure that it's used responsibly and for the purposes of good. Unlike Americans, we understand that human rights and human dignity also need to be respected Americans stubbornly cling to their outdated interpretation of their archaic Constitution while the rest of the world forges ahead. You Americans look very uncivilised to the rest of us when you allow bigots to speak out openly. By allowing hate speech, you are sending the message to the rest of the world that your government approves of hatred and intolerance. Is that really what you want, Americans?

SPOILER ALERT Welcome back to the draft update, where today I'm singing "DING DONG THE WITCH IS DEAD" because Sierra has finally been eliminated! I don't even care that she was my ninth pick, and that her elimination tied things up again. Rankings: 1. MICHAELA (The only person I can honestly say I'm rooting for) 2. Tai (I like him, but I don't want him to win) 3. Cirie 4. Culpepper (He's cool) 5. Aubry (I love her, but she's really done nothing) 6. Troyzan (Pretty much in the same boat as Aubry) 7. Andrea (Would've been happy if she left. She's getting way too cocky, and I still think taking Zeke out so soon was a bad move) 8. Sierra (Glad she's gone. Granted I did kinda like her when she became an underdog, but before that she just came off really cocky and obnoxious. Plus the fanbase loved her preseason and most of the fanbase annoys me so I kind of irrationally held a grudge against her because of them. Also, HOW DID SHE NOT REALIZE SARAH VOTED FOR HER. WHAT THE HELL.) 9. Sarah (You still annoy me, and I'm mad that you're in such a good position): SPOILER O UTD WIT SURVIVOR GAME CHANGERS MAMANUGA ISLANDS ALE II SPOILER ALERT Welcome back to the draft update, where today I'm singing "DING DONG THE WITCH IS DEAD" because Sierra has finally been eliminated!
