In the immortal words of Gunnery Sergeant Hartman, “Well ... No shit!”

I woke up to 8 responses to my remarks of last night.

I ought to criticize your country a little more often. It fires you guys up!

Good for you. I’m proud of you.

Rise and shine, ladies! You guys are always sleeping while I’m working, you slackers.

And @Aussie has been AWOL. Where are you? Get back to your post!

What if you and the vast majority of Australians supported a law against homosexuality? Arrest people for Facebook posts supporting homosexuality? Wouldn't that be promoting crimes on Facebook?

I like our freedom of speech.
but you do still have laws against homosexuality......weird...

Those state laws are invalidated by a 2003 Supreme Court decision. But that’s not the point. Your country could make it a crime to organize a pro gay rights rally on social media. That’s the point.

they could also stop us talking about UFO's but they don't as passing a law like that would be very hard and about as relevant

This case is about someone organizing a public function that has the potential to kill people and make them very sick... I know America doesn't give a shit about this with your 190,000 dead.....

There is no law about posting their disapproval about what the Government does on Facebook, they can go for their lives. Free speak is fine, but to organize a public meeting that can put people lives at risk does...
Pitty America doesn't do that......
Your radical right and Left organizers being put in jail for organizing Portland might stop a lot of damage and lives lost. I guess your better off putting your heads in the sand and cry FREE SPEECH and CONSTITUTION instead...

I don't really see how you can be critical of Right or Left wing Violent Protests if you don't think the organisors can be arrested for Inciting Violence and Riots...Your either support them or don't... How else can you stop these groups from creating terror in your cities....
I know it's very easy to pick a side and demonize the other, reality is though both sides are the problem.....

As long as your under the Impression people can organize whatever they want and incite violence (or in the OP'S case betray public safety), it's their right, these problems will never disappear....

and death tolls both from Fire arms and C-19
I guess we just value human life more than fears we might loose some rights...
It's not a question of valuing life. Americans don't value life less than Australians do. But Americans value individual rights more than Australians do.

So how many gun deaths and deaths from C-19 have happened this year alone in the USA all because of a FEAR that you might loose a right... Evidence points elsewhere, If you did value life more USA's actions would be different. You know a people by their actions after all....
you where spooked when California just wanted to limit the size of a magazine to 10 bullets.. again fear.
winge about antifa then moan about rights when someone here is arrested for incitement....It really is a joke.....
If you really where serious about stopping these protests in Portland you would support the organisers going to jail....
But Rights....

it's not your criticism of the country thats the problem .. it's your defense of someone deliberately and knowingly breaking the law.

That was my impression too, hence my comparison to falsely shouting Fire! in a crowded cinema. Rights or not you would be in serious trouble if you caused panic and injuries or death resulted. Inciting people to protest and ignore COVID19 precautions is the same as shouting Fire in a cinema.

Seth is ok with people shouting fire as long as a bunch of them do it and organize it on Facebook.then it’s not illegal :bgrin

At the end of the day what matters is objective social outcomes.

Australia beats America is nearly every single objective social outcome. No country is perfect; but I'd rather live in Australia than in America.
