    One of the most legendary soccer players of his time received a jail sentence and a fine for posting “transphobic” social media messages citing the Bible’s creation account.“God created Adam and Eve,” wrote retired Greek football legend Vassilis Tsiartas in the second of two Facebook posts opposing a 2017 law that would have lowered the age to legally change one’s gender to 15 and removed other legal barriers.The 49-year-old initially responded by saying, “I hope that the first sex changes will be made to the children of those who voted for this abomination.” Members of Parliament may as well “legalize...

    I realize this is old news but, why is Savage banned from entering the UK? All I am able to find is provoking violence and fostering hate. This is rather vague. Does anyone know what specifically provoked the ban?

    Two German NGOs have launched a lawsuit against Twitter for failing to remove antisemitic tweets that include Holocaust denial and trivialization. The European Union of Jewish Students (EUJS) along with HateAid gGmbH, which advocates against online hate and violence, have brought their case against Twitter in a civil lawsuit alleging that the platform’s lack of moderation of content violates German law. The suit centers around six comments that the NGOs described as antisemitic and illegal that were not removed despite being reported to Twitter. “In one case relating to Holocaust denial, Twitter had even explicitly refused to remove the content....

    The United States will soon follow Europe in implementing laws against so-called hate speech, a top Eurocrat claimed at the World Economic Forum’s meeting in Davos. The vice president for Values and Transparency for the European Commission, Věra Jourová predicted on Tuesday that hate speech laws will be imposed upon the American public, despite longstanding case law at the Supreme Court protecting such speech under the First Amendment. “Illegal hate speech, which you will have soon also in the U.S. I think that we have a strong reason why we have this in the criminal law,” Jourová said.

    Leftists don’t even make much of a pretense anymore; they don’t believe in the freedom of speech, and they mean to deny it to their political opponents. This is by far the most disturbing aspect of their agenda, for without the freedom to dissent, a tyrant can operate without any restraint whatsoever. Without the freedom of speech, there simply is no free society. The latest example of the Left’s war on dissent comes from Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Reparations), who has just introduced a bill in the House, the “Leading Against White Supremacy Act of 2023.” Only vicious racists could...

    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — An electronic billboard in Butler County is upsetting a lot of people. The billboard along Route 422 in Summit Township features a swastika. People who live in the area say this type of hate and negativity isn't welcome in their community, and they're working to do something about it. "To me, what's on the sign is just not acceptable, it's hate speech," Heidi Priest said. The billboard is privately owned and sits on private property. Some people who live in the area said it doesn't represent their community, but they do believe it does represent the need...
  • College trustee: take anti-DEI faculty to the slaughterhouse

    We keep hearing about how the slightest critique of woke ideology is a call to violence and “stochastic terrorism,” and we see just as often these activists call for actual violence against critics of the woke religion. While not actually calling for violence, in this case a college trustee called for taking recalcitrant faculty to the metaphorical “slaughterhouse” due to their concerns with DEI ideology. Ironically, the controversial comments came after several students and professors complained to the Kern Community College District Board of Trustees that a conservative group of professors who promote free speech on campus made them feel...

    This week, the arrest of British Catholic woman for “praying” outside an abortion clinic has attracted international attention. But the jailing of Isabel Vaughan-Spruce, director of anti-abortion group March for Life UK, is neither surprising nor particularly rare as a denial of free speech in Great Britain. It is also a cautionary tale for those in the United States, which is facing arguably the largest anti-free speech movement in its history. Pictures from Birmingham show Vaughan-Spruce, 45, simply standing near the abortion clinic silently praying when an officer confronts her. She was not blocking access or displaying any protest signs...

    We simply cannot allow the left to keep bullying critics of their agenda by accusing us of causing violence.The Human Rights Campaign, an LGBT advocacy organization, has targeted conservative commentator Matt Walsh of The Daily Wire; the person who runs the Libs of TikTok Twitter account; and Seth Dillon, CEO of the satire site The Babylon Bee, accusing them of causing violence in a new report titled “Online Harassment, Offline Violence.” The report argues, “Anti-equality, online extremists are leading a proactive and coordinated campaign of hate against hospitals and medical providers who offer gender-affirming care for transgender, non-binary and questioning...

    After Nancy Mace’s NUCLEAR questioning of Alejandra Caraballo (and if you haven’t seen it yet, watch below, it’s A-MA-ZING), Glenn Greenwald was good enough to put a thread together taking the ‘online safety expert’ who openly wished violence on SCOTUS justices apart. As usual from Greenwald, this is pretty damn good: This is a brilliant exchange by @NancyMace yesterday in Congress. There is a tiny group of hateful left-liberal fanatics whom have been arbitrarily dubbed "Online Safety Experts" and constantly warn hateful rhetoric incites violence. Yet they're the most hateful people around. https://t.co/bI7fdata0C — Glenn Greenwald (@ggreenwald) December 14, 2022...

    Twitter Elon Musk reached his limit with U.S. House Rep Adam Schiff (D-CA) and publicly scolded the Dem Rep from California today after Adam claimed that “hate speech” was up on Twitter. Schiff said: “On Elon Musk’s Twitter: Slurs against Black people have tripled. Slurs against women are up 33%. Slurs against Jewish people are up 61%. And slurs against gay men are up 58%. “These numbers are abysmal – and unacceptable. Today, @RepMarkTakano and I are demanding action.” Adam made the comment early this morning. Musk ignored him for most of the day but set Adam straight in the...

    Hand it to the Anti-Defamation League. There isn’t a single other organization out there that can declare something as fact, with no evidence, and have every major news organization repeat it verbatim, no questions asked.The New York Times on Friday published the headline, “Hate Speech’s Rise on Twitter Is Unprecedented, Researchers Find.” That frightful claim was backed up, in large part, by none other than the leftist ADL, which is wildly successful in convincing anyone who will listen that Nazis are lurking in every American household.“The shift in speech is just the tip of a set of changes on the...

    With the 8th day of action to combat hate postings, the German police will again take joint action on 30.11.2022 against the authors of criminal posts on the Internet in a nationwide action. Because incitements to crimes, threats, coercion or incitement to hatred on the Internet are crimes that can be punished with up to five years in prison. As of this morning, police authorities in 14 federal states have carried out a total of 91 police measures, including home searches and interrogations. The Federal Criminal Police Office (BKA) as the central office of the German police coordinates these measures....

    American Greatness ^ | 25 Sep, 2022 | Victor Davis Hanson
    What we used to know as “hate speech” is now presidentially acceptable speech, and what has followed from it is no surprise. It has been a canard of the Left that “words matter.” We are lectured that “hate speech” leads inevitably to street violence. So how ironic that the Left defames nearly half of America as dangerous “semi-fascist” extremists, white-raged and privileged, ultra MAGA, and guilty of all sorts of thought crimes from secession to civil insurrection? And what is the result? Does this constant demonization matter? And what are the bitter fruits of such labors? After all, what did...

    On Tiffany Cross's show MSNBC show on Saturday, resident provocateur Elie Mystal of The Nation made an invidious generalization about white people that would be condemned as racist if made in respect of people of another race. Commenting on Donald Trump's statement that there would be "big problems" in the country if he is indicted, and the possibility of violence, Mystal said: The cause of the problem, of course, is Trump himself and his MAGA acolytes themselves, and the people who are willing to do the violence in Trump's name. Again, I'm not, I guess I want to say that...

Mystal said, “They never do this to white people. We all know it. The fact that these people are nonwhite is baked into the system. It’s baked into how they are allowed and how they think they can get away with treating people this despicably and treating them as if they are garbage barge that could be sent around the country.”
  • Biden announces push to strip Big Tech of immunity for third-party content (aka censor or get sued)

    09/15/2022 7:11:55 PM PDT · by janetjanet998 · 42 replies
    President Joe Biden announced on Thursday that his administration would push to end the immunity Big Tech platforms enjoy for third-party content, an effort Republicans previously backed. "I'm calling on Congress to get rid of special immunity for social media companies and impose much stronger transparency requirements on all of them," the president said, per the New York Post. Specifically, he called for the repeal of Section 230 of the 1996 Communications Decency Act, echoing similar demands from Republicans in the aftermath of the 2020 presidential election, amid the outcry over tech company censorship of explosive allegations against Hunter Biden....

    As RedState reported, excerpts from Joe Biden’s “MAGA speech” previewed a gross abuse of the Executive Office of the President. Sure enough, that’s exactly what was delivered as the president appeared in Philidelphia, standing in front of a blood-red background, flanked by Marines. Lines were crossed that can’t be uncrossed, from the use of the military as props in a blatantly political speech to Biden suggesting that nearly half the country is a “danger” to the republic. This was a speech that went far beyond anything seen in the modern era of presidential addresses. Of course, because we are dealing...

  • California set to be 1st state to limit prosecutors' ability to use rap lyrics as evidence

    California is set to be the first state in the country to enact a law that will limit prosecutors’ ability to use rap lyrics as evidence in criminal cases. Assembly Bill 2799 will require a pre-trial hearing to determine if the lyrics are relevant to the case. Assembly member Reginald Jones-Sawyer Sr., says this bill will help protect rap artists, who are predominantly African American, and their freedom of speech. He also says he hopes the bill will help eliminate any racial bias that may exist when presenting evidence.
