‘Government Lunacy in Canada’

June 27, 2017

“Forced speech is the most extreme infringement of free speech. It puts words in the mouths of citizens and threatens to punish them if they do not comply. When speech is merely restricted, you can at least keep your thoughts to yourself. Compelled speech makes people say things with which they disagree.”

“‘Bill C-16’ received Royal Assent June 19, passing into law a little over a year after Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould introduced it in the House of Commons.

“The purpose of this legislation is to ensure that everyone can live according to their gender identity and express their gender as they choose,” said Wilson-Raybould.

“The law adds ‘gender identity’ and ‘gender expression’ to the list of prohibited grounds in the ‘Canadian Human Rights Act’ and amends the ‘Criminal Code’ to protect ‘transgender’ and “gender diverse” Canadians from ‘hate speech’…”  (more…)

‘Holding back the Tide’

May 4, 2017

“The Mayor of the southern French town of Béziers predicts a Marine Le Pen victory would be like the Trump “revolution against the elite” in the U.S., and slammed globalist candidate Emmanuel Macron and Hillary Clinton as part of “the system”.

“Interviewed by the BBC for Radio 4’s ‘Today’ programme, Mayor Robert Ménard, who takes a hard line on illegal migrants, said a victory for the ‘Front National’ leader would be a “radical change” which would give Le Pen’s voters a sense they would be listened to and protected…

“Mr. Ménard, who has recently been fined for pointing out the massive demographic shift in schools in Béziers {See below…}, where in one class he said 91% of pupils are Muslim, slammed open borders and globalist presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron, comparing him to former U.S. presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

‘More Fascist-Left Speech Repression’

April 14, 2017

“The violence and brutalization of political opponents is a new phenomenon in American politics, but it is becoming increasingly common, and it has a historical antecedent: the Nazi ‘Brownshirts’. In “The Coming of the Third Reich”, historian Richard J. Evans explains how, in the early days of National Socialist Germany, Stormtroopers (Brownshirts)

“organized campaigns against unwanted professors in the local newspapers [and] staged mass disruptions of their lectures.”

“To express dissent from Nazi positions became a matter of taking one’s life into one’s hands. The idea of people of opposing viewpoints airing their disagreements in a civil and mutually respectful manner was gone. One was a Nazi, or one was silent (and fearful).

“That is just the kind of public arena that the Left has been trying to bring to the United States for years — particularly on college campuses. (more…)

‘Tightening the Noose’

March 11, 2017

“The European Parliament has introduced a new procedural rule, which allows for the chair of a debate to interrupt the live broadcasting of a speaking MEP

“in the case of defamatory, racist or xenophobic language or behavior by a Member”.

“Furthermore, the President of the European Parliament may even

“decide to delete from the audiovisual record of the proceedings those parts of a speech by a Member that contain defamatory, racist or xenophobic language”.

No one, however, has bothered to define what constitutes

defamatory, racist or xenophobic language or behavior“.

‘Free Society vs. Fear Society’

December 2, 2016

“We have lived with the fear of a terrorist attack for nine years, and yes, that is the explanation why we do not reprint the cartoons, whether it be our own or ‘Charlie Hebdo’s. We are also aware that we therefore bow to violence and intimidation.”

“In the summer of 2005, the Danish artist Kåre Bluitgen, when he met a journalist from the ‘Ritzaus Bureau’ news agency, said he was unable to find anyone willing to illustrate his book on Mohammed, the prophet of Islam. Three illustrators he contacted, Bluitgen said, were too scared. A few months later, Bluitgen reported that he had found someone willing to illustrate his book, but only on the condition of anonymity.

“Like most Danish newspapers, ‘Jyllands-Posten’ decided to publish an article about Bluitgen’s case. To test the state of freedom of expression, Flemming Rose, ‘Jyllands-Posten’s cultural editor at the time, called twelve cartoonists and offered them $160 each to draw a caricature of Mohammed. What then happened is a well-known, chilling story.
