Cool or Uncool?

Dude A is allegedly trying to pronounce some racist pronouncement or other.
Dude B is just yelling 'nooooo' every time Dude A tries to talk.
Cool or uncool?

My gut says it's as funny as your gut says it is. Racist bastards deserve what they get, more or less...buuuut...isn't the idea that you aren't supposed to take the content into account when making judgments like this? Dude A may very well be trying to say something heinous. Dude B is welcome to disagree with Dude A, of course...and to criticize what he says, vociferously, even. But it seems uncool to me to simply shout him down/yell over him, e.g. in that way.

While we're on the subject, fellow thoughtcriminals...how long before we just give up on the whole free speech thing entirely, anyway? It's extremely not popular on the PC left, which I basically take, regretfully, to be our cultural vanguard... Should we just go ahead and start thinking about what kind of post-free-speech society we might prefer?
Or what?

I don't mean to pile on, Mr. Mack, but damn, man, rethink your affinity for that video. Does it not strike you as pathetic? By what rationale can that little girl's behavior possibly be acceptable? He's "fair game"? For what? What the hell was that? I honestly have no idea what you're thinking, here.

Also, I demand that you stop being a whiny bitch, Winston. What is that last paragraph? What the hell is that?

I don't want to see even a joke of that nature. If you roll over and give up, it will only make it harder for me to rend in twain the thought police when they come for my books, as I'll have to do it through misty eyes.

Yeah, what is that, anyway? Obviously I don't believe it...it's some kind of rhetorical tomfoolery...
