The whole point of these comics is to cross the line. It's just the nature. Honestly.... I get that we shouldn't be joking about the Holocaust... however people are so damn sensitive about bullshit anymore it's insane!

I find it to be extremely distasteful.  Guess I'm not missing out by not following this comic strip.

You should post that in the thread freaking out about a tasteless greeting card regarding Muslim terrorists.

If people want to live in fear constantly about who is going to be offended.... screw them. I'm not sorry... people are making freedom of speech out to be the worse thing and it's going to end up getting stripped.

It's not my idea of humor.   I find jokes about murder and genocide rather distasteful.

Ugh, I was agreeing with you.

Freedom of speech protects people from legal ramifications.   It doesn't protect people from being disagreed with or told they are distasteful.

but agreeing with something and voicing your opinion can actually be said to be a terroristic act or induction of panic.... Even if it's just opinion. When people went around and said "Kill all the Muslims" after 9/11 they were actually getting arrested in my town because Muslims and Arabs who were Christian were being targeted in the VERBAL attacks. People were trying to say they were voicing their Freedom of Speech rights.... but didn't realize how ignorant they were sounding.
