Chit, they are sending him back
Ex-Klan chief freed after arrest in Prague

Sat Apr 25, 8:57 am ET

PRAGUE (AFP) A former US Ku Klux Klan chief arrested here on a speaking tour was freed during the night but will be forced to leave the country later Saturday, Czech police said.

David Duke, the former Grand Wizard of the Louisiana-founded Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, arrived in Prague on Friday at the invitation of a local far-right group, Narodni Odpor (National Resistance).

The 59-year-old US citizen had been due to give three lectures in Prague and Brno in the east of the country and present the Czech translation of his 1998 book "My Awakening."

3. Well, okay ...

However, the type of speech that got him arrested is still criminalized. Releasing him from prison and evicting him from the country doesn't change that.

2. If The Patriot Act did ONE good thing for us, shouldn't it keep terrorist group leaders out of USA?

Why is Ted Kennedy on the No-Fly List but not David Duke?

Why is Charles Dutton Douglas allowed to become a pilot, and David Duke can fly hither and yon all he pleases?

5. Tempting, isn't it?
Use the USAPA to round up undesirables like Duke, keep him and his ilk in custody indefinitely and torture the shit out of them.

Will there be any mercy for the weak souls who have succumbed to this?
