      Lefties’ feeling are facts to them so it’s wrong for them to fall back on the I’m just a comedian defense.

      Yes, since far too many companies immediately cave in.

    So, are they claiming protection under the First Amendment to the Constitution of the US under its, “The civil rights of none shall be abridged on account of religious belief or worship…?”
    The belief in something without evidence is “Faith”, and religion requires its adherents to have this Faith. Without Faith, it would just be Science.

      Well, as Dr Tim Ball has said GIGO can mean “Garbage In Garbage Out” but it often means “Gospel In Gospel Out”.

    ‘Non-Verifiable Statements Of Subjective Opinion’… In other words, shit you just made up.

      So, if the racketeering doesn’t stick, libel should.

      That also describes pretty well the MSM.

      They were facts until someone called them on their bullshit.
      Then they weren’t.

    Greenpeace 2015 income was about US$350 million

    They’ll probably use this lawsuit to play victim and suck in even more money.
