War on free speech: EU parliament says opposing illegal migration is "hate speech" | Eastern North Carolina Now

okays prosecutivion of four of its own members oarliament

ENCNow

A recent step by the EU toward a totalitarian state is a warning to the US, where the left is pushing the same issue, criminalization of free speech on political subjects, in this case the opposition to illegal migration.  The EU parliament has voted to authorize prosecution of four of its own members, all of them Members of the European Parliament from Poland's largest politcal party, the populist / nationalist Law and Justice Party., for "hate speech" for liking and retweetng a campaign video opposing illegal immigration produced by their own party.

During the campaign for Poland's 2018 local elections, the Law and Justice Party produced a campaign video accusing their largest rival of being soft on illegal immigration and pointing out the dangers of illegal immigration to Polish society.  Four sitting members of the European parliament from the Law and Justice Party liked the video on social media and retweeted it.  A left wing activist who is a felon convicted of embezzlement, repeatedly filed requests with Polish prosecutors to charge the four with "hate speech" but those prosecutors have rejected prosecution saying it was unfounded.

Now five years later, and the leftwing activist having moved to Norway, he has found an activist iudge in Warsaw willing to push this political witch hunt.  The judge applied to the European Parliament to waive the parliamentary immunity of the four members so they could be charged.  The EU parliament's committee recommended that the request be rejected, but the full palriament voted to waive their parliamentary immunity.

So in EU countries, speaking out against illegal migration can get a political leader prosecuted criminally with the approval of the EU parliament.

This follows Macron's government in France prosecuting a French Senator for "hate speech" for a social media post of "immigration kills"  after an illegal alien brutally murdered a young French girl.

Here in the US, the Peoples Republic of New York is now using "surveillance" to "collect data" on people's "hate speech" on social media.

Its true context does matter. I agree, saying the N word is wrong, but not in itself a crime. So how about this. I burn a cross in the yard of a black family while calling them the N word. Hate speech? Just trespassing or a hate crime?

George Orwell wrote decades ago: "Threats to freedom of speech, writing and action, though often trivial in isolation, are cumulative in their effect and, unless checked, lead to a general disrespect for the rights of the citizen." If only he could see his own country, and the western world in general today.

Orwell also wrote: "If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear."

The real outpouring of hate these days is against Jews and Israel, and it is by the left and the Muslims. Funny thing that the leftist groups who claim to want to fight "hate" are looking the other way. To the left it is okay to engage in hate against a group that was was the victim of horrific war crimes. Recently sacked British Home Secretary Suella Braverman was spot on when she publicly denounced the pro-Hamas march in London as a "hate march". Braverman is of ethnic minority roots herself, but is a small "c" Conservative.

Somehow for the left it is "politically correct" for Muslims to openly hate Jews and gays, but they want to make everything conservatives, Christians, Republicans men, or whites do or say to be "hate".

First of all speech should never be criminalized unless it is something like a threat of violence or part of some other crime like making a false statemeent to defraud someone.

The N word is one I have not heard used by white people in years, but I do hear it used from time to time by one young black person in reference to another black person. It is a word that is never used in polite society, but not something that should be criminalized. Heck, the word is not even always racial. There was a line in Elivs Costello's hit song "Oliver's Army" that went "all it takes is an itchy trigger; one more widow, one less white nigger".

I'll bite. The N word. Hate speech or not?

The far left would like to do the same thing here in the US, but so far our First Amendment has stopped them. However, our whole Bill of Rights seems to be under attack by the Biden regime and the Democrats. Americans can still call out the traitors who push open borders, at least for now. What is happening to personal freedom in Europe is appalling. It seems the EU wants to either refashion itself as the Fouth Reich or the EUSSR.
