Petition to get terrorist support groups banned

Hi All,

Please see the below petition and sign if you wish :wink:

We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to Remove & Ban terrorist Support groups/Organizations from Face Book and all over social networking sites.

There is currently a fan page on face book for those who support the terrorism acts of the CIRA/RIRA and the original disbanded groups prior.

We feel this is a great disrespect to those who have lost family, been injured or lost their lives to recent and past terrorist acts and therefore I am petitioning 10 Downing Street in order to have this group and many others closed with immediate effect.

Face book & all other social networking sites should not be allowed to air groups in favour of terrorist acts.

Please sign this petition and let others know, so that 10 Downing Street may recognize our plea.

10 Downing Street petition
 
One of the admirable things about our democracy is freedom of expression (other than incitement to violence) which has already suffered more than enough encroachment under the present government. I'm not going to let a minority of rabid nutters change my views or lead to bans which could be manipulated to stifle justified protest. Better to let the authorities monitor them and, if necessary, counter them instead of driving them underground. It also means they can be subjected to the full scorn and ridicule they deserve.

Hmm, 'cos we all know how successful those 10 Downing Street e-petions are... :roll:

Have to agree there, there's millions of these things doing the rounds at the moment and I don't know of one that has made a scratch.

I'm setting myself up for incoming here but then I've never given a fcuk before so I'm not arsed. The thing about living in a democracy is that we neither censor nor withdraw somebody's right to say or support what they like. If we are to restrict the voice given even to things as disagreeable as terrorist groups or anti-forces protestors then we are in danger of becoming hypocrites.

Like it or not, the freedom we all enjoy is down to the fact that you can all say, and pretty much do as you like, to silence or ban something we don't like is a dangerous path to begin down. If you can't see that then you don't fully understand democracy.
 
Why doesn't someone with face book start a " support the supporters against supporters of terrorist supporters scum" group. It's even got a catchy name.

Petition No 10? You've got more chance of getting a blowjob of Michelle Obama than anyone taking any notice.

I agree these groups should be silenced .... or more silent than they currently are but like others above I feel that by taking this first step we could irrevocably damage the freedoms of other groups who are justified in their lawful protests.

We should be very careful what we wish for. This is the sort of thing that could very easily turn round and bite us in the a**e.

For that reason, it won't be getting my name near it.

I won't be signing it. We cannot live in a democracy then silence those with whom we do not agree. Silencing them does not make them go away and, in fact, will only increase their anger and disaffection. Instead of trying to "silence" them - which smacks of sheer moral cowardice, by the way - engage with them and bring them round to your point of view. Let them have they say and consequently let them discredit themselves.
