Freedom Of Speech? So Twewntieth Century For The Leftist Nazis
by Ed Butt
Another highly placed Obama felching neo nazi leftie American legal scholar named Eric Posner is endorsing gutting the First Amendment in favor of anti-blasphemy, anti "hate speech", anti - inequality laws and state sponsored censorship. It's the most anti-Free Speech commentary I've seen yet. And naturally it comes from a leftie.
The first amendment to the US Bill of Rights means little to us British of course. But our rights are enshrined in law too. The Magna Carta? you might well ask. No but closeish, our common law rights are enshrined in a document signed into law before that even. king alfred's Liber Judicialis was written in the ninth century. So why are we letting these jumped up colonials and a bunch of closet Jew Roasters in Brussels dictate to us what we can and can't say.
It turns out Prof.
Goebbels Posner is of the opinion that "we overvalue free speech" (i.e. the ethics and values of goat molesting, vagina mutilating woman killers are the right ones and our Graeco Roman Christian values are wrong. So we must abandon ours our moral code and adopt theirs or to put it another way, "often free speech must yield to other values and the need for order." Didn't Hitler say something like that?
Chicago law professor Posner, who also argues "We have to remember that our First Amendment values are not universal; they emerged contingently from our own political history, a set of cobbled-together compromises among political and ideological factions responding to localized events..."
Well yes, American rights such as Free Speech did emerge from American history and the shared Anglo Saxon values of the English speaking diaspora and the Germanic lands. Islamic values, which Prof Posner seems so fond of emerged out of Muslim history. Their values suit them, our values suit most of us with the exception of ego tripping elitist academics like Posner who have never done an honest days work in their lives but have progressed from being hooked on coke to being hooked on power.
If Posner was a tenth as intelligent as he thinks he is (Chicago you must remember is the University that gave Barack Obama a tenured Professorship which did not require him to deliver any lectures, host any tutorials or even turn up to collect his mail) he might understand the case for free speech is a profoundly philosophical one, with a very long history (stretching back to Ancient Greece) and it is not only a Western idea, either. Posner is allegedly a highly educated legal scholar so we have grounds to suspect he knows this but finds it inconvenient and thus pretends it is not so (In Posner's Brave New World can we expect it will be verboten to suggest that some public figure is, umm, being economical with the truth?)
The western culture hating Posner goes on to say "As often happens, what starts out as a grudging political settlement has become, when challenged from abroad, a dogmatic principle to be imposed universally. Suddenly, the disparagement of other people and their beliefs is not an unfortunate fact but a positive good. It contributes to the 'marketplace of ideas...'"
Challenged from abroad? So this guy thinks that when a raving Muslim cleric damands we decare free speech illegal and make insulting the Prophet a capital offence punishable by stoning we in Europe, the USA, Australia, Canada, Japan and other outlying farmsteads of the civilised world should simply cave in to extremist demands.
There is a lot wrong with the way free speech laws are interpreted these days but the freedom to examine and criticize people and beliefs is a positive good, How else will we ever be able to separate good ideas from bad ones? How else will we be able to determine that educating little girls is far more beneficial to society than mutilating their vaginas and using ancient, outmoded marriage traditions to enslave them. There is no other way other than freedom of discussion. And government can't specify in which ideas or criticisms are and aren't permitted -- that would assume we already knew and agreed on Truth.
Does this self righteous, simpering clown seriously ask us to believe that if we are allowed the freedom to think for ourselves we might decide that Nazis or other right wing fanatics are right after all."
It is not right wing extremists who threaten our freedom but left wing extremists like Posner who yearn for authoritarian totalitarianism that we must fear. We must never forget that Hitler's political movement were the National Socialists.

Politician Blasts Conviction For Speaking The Truth On Anti-Semitism In Europe
A Danish politician has been reprimanded for posting comments on Twitter about the-much-commented-on-in-mainstream-media resurgence of anti semitism in Europe. Apparently while hand wringing and breast beating about violent attacks on Jewish people and vandalising premises of Jewish owned businesses is fine, stating the absolutely effing obvious by linking the Europe migrant crisis to this new wave of anti Semitism is a criminal offence.

France Moves to Make ‘Conspiracy Theories’ Illegal by Government Decree
I have little time for people who yell 'conspiracy theory'. These emotionally crippled, intellectually retarded, conformity addicted, delusional, left leaning, low - information sucklers of Nanny State's bitter pap might fancy themselves the voices of reason but in reality they never think anything through.
I'm hearing very disturbing news from the French regional elections, predicting that the Front National, comfortable winners in last week's first round of regional elections, hasve been routed in all regions. For that to happen, and to happen through a massive increase in turnout, suggests electoral fraud on a hughe scale. Or has France joined Britain in adopting the Islamic version of democracy, which is one man one vote, one Imam one thousand votes.

The latest outburst has come in response to a few tabloid stories of actor Aidan Turner's 'topless' appearances in the BBC television series Poldark.

Free Speech Is Being Murdered By The Media And Left Wing Authoritarianism
France Moves to Make ‘Conspiracy Theories’ Illegal by Government Decree
Without free speech there is no democracy. Without democracy there is no freedom. But all over the developed world free speech is under attack from politically correct politics. It is time to start resisting, do not believe the propaganda published by mainstream media, question everything and make up your own mind. as The Buddha said, "Believe nothing you read or are told unless it agrees with your own experience and common sense."
Political elites and super-bureaucrats must be very worried. New start up political parties, dismissed as populist byt in reality listening to the concerns of voters are making inroads into the political status quo. New media investigative journalists and op-ed writers are challenging the official propaganda (and gaining an ever bigger audience). It’s becoming harder to control consensus reality.
Students censored – An Academic Community In A Crisis Of Collectivism.
Intellectual freedom in our universities is under threat from ... intellectuals.

But if universities are now dedicated to turning out dull minded conformists, what hope is there for western society?

Oxford University Bans All Things Pig Related In Support Of Free Speech

Eight Subjects That Ought To Be Part Of The Manadtory Curriculum For Basic Education?

The embedded article from Collective Evolution presents some interesting ideas.
British Democracy In Terminal Decline - Voting Is Redundant And Civil Liberties Are So Last Year
When did democracy go out of fashion. I don't remember voting on whether we wanted to give up our civil liberties or be ruled by a dictatorship of unelected bureaucrats from Brussels, but that is where we are heading, along with the other free nations of Europe. And the USA, so-called land of the free is further along the road to fascism than Europe.

The Perils Of Centralized Power
The Real Agenda Of Internet Trolls (fans of free speech they are not)The Real Agenda Of Internet Trolls (fans of free speech they are not)
We show how the increasing centralization of power has led to the public becoming disenfranchised and feelinf unable to control their own lives. it has also facilitated the growth of a culture of corruption and cover up in public life, the justice system, education, the churches and other areas where the elite have become remote and out of touch with the citizens they serve.
You've seen internet trolls at work, in any comment thread under a blog or article on a controversial subject the trolls will be busy. Are they just mean spirited bigots determined not to tolerate anybody whose opinion differs to their own. Or is there another agenda at work?
Genetically Modified Truth? How Corpoate Money Corrupted Science.

Diversity' Does Not Mean Quotas. Why Do The Left Have To Rewrite The Dictionary.
One might think, given the amount of screaming and shouting about diversity we hear from the left, they might take a little time to find out what it really means and stop applying their superficial and shallow meaning to it. The left however are hupocrites which is why they can claim to have a monopoly on truth and goodness while embracing the tactics of fascism in silencing opposition. Thus they have no problem reducing 'diversity' to a question of skin colour or sexual preference while insisting only one shade of opinion is acceptable.
Latest neo-nazi-Liberal Outrage - The Criminalization Of ParenthoodClassical liberalism is about freedom of individuals, about tolerance of diversity and even eccentricity and about resising the cultural hegemony of unelected elites. Contemporary liberalism, with its pseudo religious dogmas, intolerance of dissent and contempt for the traditions of society is the very opposite of anything the world liberal can be stretched to mean. The war on parents is a symptom of this authoritarian 'liberal' disease

How your government criminally wastes your efforts and your money
The invasion of Iraq was done on the basis of government fraud about "Weapons of Mass Destruction" they knew did not exist. They killed over one million Iraqis.

Whether Tom Chivers Is A Science Writer, A Hack Journalist Or A Cunt Is A Matter Of Semantics
More political propaganda from the loose bowelled left (they pump verbal diorrhea at us all the time) concerning whether it is a 'hate crime' to decline to address transgender males as "she". Once again in something that is a personal matter, the self styled metrosexual elite have elected themselves as guardians of politically correct morality and are trying to impose their emotionally retarded views on all of us.
Gay and same sex marriage: The Bigotry And Intolerance Of Those Who Describe Themselves As The Liberal Left
With same sex marriage made legal in Britain we face the same kind of witch hunts against businesses that do not want to deal with beareded queens in bridal gowns as the liberal bigots and gay nazis are launching in the USA. As many of us new media common sense merchants predicted, once the principle was accepted in law, nobody would be allowed to opt out of supporting these bullies.
Climate Controled Communities - Science Leading The Rush To Fascism.

So Who Is Anti - science? Those Who Question Climate Change Or Those Who Would Abolish Free Speech
It was looking as if the global warming scare was dead, then that Nazi shit Barack Obama, seeing his dream of being President Of The World slipping away, gave his science whores enough money to enable them to kick some life back into it. Now the "science" lobby, unable to put together an convinging argument against their challengers are demanding the abolition of free speech.
There Is A Global Conspiracy Says World Bank Insider
We have reported on many situations that make it obvious our political leaders are collaborating with bankers and global corporations towards, it appears, a global government. Is this conspiracy in the inteerests of we the punters? You can bet your life it isn't. So far however it has been hard to convince indoctrinated Marxists and people who believe singing Kumbaya will make things right, that big government is not our friend but our enemy.
Homosexuality: As a liberal society we have a duty to tolderate, not celebrate.
Even though the government has accepted a very limited definition of same sex marriage the gay lobby keeps raving on about the greates non issue of all time.

Representative government Is Being Replaced By A Global Technocracy
When Peter Mandelson, the architect of the New Labour project that gave Britain it's most authoritarian government in three hundred years and sold out national sovereignty to supranational bureaucracies, says that representative democracy is dying, he does not sound as if he will be one of the chief mourtners. What can we do to rescue our democratic freedoms from smooth faced technocrats like Mandelson?

How academic debate is suppressed on science topics like Climate Change, GMOs, Pesticides and Toxicity of medicines
Intellectual intolerance and the supposed superiority of the scientific education have led not just to the politiciisation of science but to it's being seduced by corporate money and political power. Science was ever fascism's whore of course and the egos of scientists are easily bought. This has led to a very unhealthy emergence of dogmas and orthodoxies and an intolerance of the dissent that is essential if scientific research is to have any credibility.

Phobophobia - Fear Of Being called Phobic?
Homophobia is not fear of homosexuals but fear of thec same thing which does not make sense. Just as politically correct thinking uses the word bigot nonsensically so it's accusations of phobia are irrational - as irrational as the groundless fear familiar to those who suffer the recognized medical conditions called phobias.
