Finland's Supreme Court to decide if posting Bible verse is "hate speech" crime | Eastern North Carolina Now

The concept of "hate speech" is a term used by totalitarians who hate FREE speech and want to suppress it.  While America has so far been relatively immune due to our First Amendment protecting free speech, the "hate speech" plague is already falling on parts of Europe and it is a huge threat to democracy.  Democracy simply cannot function when speech content is regulated by government.

In Finland, the country's Supreme Court will be deciding if posting a verse from the Bible constitutes "hate speech"  for which someone can be criminally prosecuted.  The person charged with "hate speech" for posting the BIble verse is a member of FInland's parliament and a former Minister of the Interior in the country's government, Paivi Rasanen.  She has been acquitted by the trial court and that has been affirmed by the intermediate appellate court, but the case has now been appealed by woke prosecutors to Finland's Supreme Court.

Mrs. Rasanen is being defended by ADL International whose executive director calls the case "precedent setting for free speech."

The totalitarian weapon of "hate speech" is a very, very serious threat to a free society.

The "hate speech" mafia is also going after those who oppose illegal immigration. A French Senator is facing criminal "hate speech" charges for a social media post that "immigration kills" after a young French girl was brutally raped and murdered by an illegal alien "asylum seeker". Three members of the European parliament, from Italy, Belgium, and Romania are also facing "hate speech" complaints over remarks they made on the floor of the EU parliament. The Belgian MEP had quoted statistics from his own national government on the number of asylum seekers arrested for crimes. The Italian MEP had stated her feelings about "honor killings" among Islamic "asylum seekers", the victims of which are almost all women. To the far left, this is now called "hate speech" and they want to punish people for it.

The danger is that if the Democrats ever get their people in control of our Supreme Court, they are likely to "discover" some major limititations on free speech written in invisible ink or something in the First Amendment, that nobody, including its drafters ever knew was there. Our liberties are only safe as long as we have a common sense majority on the Supreme Court. That is one of the many reasons we desperately need to get Biden GONE.
