Freedom of Speech

Generation Snowflake thinks free speech is a weapon used against them

The liberal panty-waists of Generation Snowflake are now arguing that simply advocating for free speech is “a cudgel against them“.

They sound remarkably like a few health troughers I am acquainted with.

The conventional wisdom surrounding American college life these days views campuses as hotbeds of intolerance for free speech, with students themselves leading the charge.

But a new report by PEN America, to be released on Monday, questions that story line while warning of a different danger: a growing perception among young people that cries of “free speech” are too often used as a cudgel against them.

Poor little petals. Can’t cope with free speech.

The report, titled “And Campus for All: Diversity, Inclusion and Freedom of Speech at U.S. Universities,” covers a broad range of hot-button topics, including trigger warnings, microaggressions, safe spaces and controversial campus speakers. While it cites “troubling incidents of speech curtailed,” it finds no “pervasive” crisis.

But it does worry about an “apparent chasm” between free speech advocates and student activists, thanks in part to a conversation that sometimes dismisses students’ demands for equity and inclusion instead of parsing how they do, or don’t, infringe on the “bedrock principles” of free speech.

“A rising generation may be turning against free speech,” the report warns. “Before these developments deepen and harden, PEN America hopes to open up a wider, more searching dialogue that can help all sides to these debates better identify common ground.”   Read more »

Pro-Immigrant Party in Holland wants ” Racism Police “

If the Muslim Pro-Immigrant Party have their way, ‘ undesirable ‘ speech will be criminalised in Holland. The party wants to create ‘ Racism Police ‘ to crack down on critics of Islam that they call Islamophobes. This kind of attack against freedom of speech is not just happening in Holland. It is happening where ever a mutant ideology is created. This mutant ideology is the spawn of two extreme parents. The mother is  Leftist Social Justice outrage, the father is Political Islam. United in their hatred for Jews and their desire to create a new world order they are a powerful force for change.

Legal Insurrection is reporting that the Netherlands’ pro-immigration Denk Party is pushing for a thousand-strong “Racism Police” to go after thought and speech crimes.

The party, dominated by members of Turkish and Muslim origin — quelle surprise — was founded in 2014 by two former-socialist Turkish politicians but it already sits in the Dutch parliament and is hoping to mobilize the country’s million-strong immigrant population (out of about 17 million overall) and growing Muslim population, currently at about 7 percent, in the parliamentary elections to be held early next year.

Where is the concept of forgiveness in Islam?


A Jordanian writer has been shot dead outside court where he was due to face charges for sharing a caricature on social media that was seen as insulting Islam.

The gunman was arrested at the scene, state news agency Petra said. A security source said he was a 39-year-old Muslim preacher in a mosque in the capital.

Writer Nahed Hattar, a Christian and an anti-Islamist activist was arrested last month after he shared a caricature that depicted a bearded man in heaven smoking in bed with women and asking God to bring him wine and cashews.

In the cartoon, the man also asks God to clear his dishes and put a door on his tent and knock before entering. Read more »

EXCLUSIVE: David Seymour’s thoughts on Islamic Immigration



With overseas terror attacks and mass migration of un-vetted refugees into Europe, many people are concerned about the connection between Islam and terrorism, along with the social unrest that can accompany large-scale migration.  While New Zealand has been relatively insulated it would be incredibly naive to think we are immune to the challenges faced by Europe and the US.

Too often, the left labels those raising concerns as racists or bigots – a cynical attempt to shut down debate through name calling. Debating the ideas and beliefs of any religion shouldn’t be forbidden and the practical difficulties of integration, especially where there is a clash of values, should be openly discussed.

Facebook censors Gab founder and CEO Andrew Torba

Facebook and twitter have censored and banned conservative voices many times but they usually at least pretend that they are doing it for some other reason. Twitter said Breitbart’s journalist Milo’s critical article of the Ghostbusters movie caused hundreds of nasty troll messages, hence his complete ban. In this case, Facebook didn’t even bother to give a fake reason for their censorship of Andrew Torba, founder and CEO of the free speech platform Gab.

Gab founder and CEO Andrew Torba was temporarily banned from Facebook last night after sharing a link to Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos’ Dangerous Faggot tour trailer just hours before his event at Texas Tech university.
Torba documented the temporary suspension from Facebook on Twitter and Gab, relaying his confusion as to the reason of his ban and the removal of the post, which purely consisted of a link to the video and the comment, “Wew lads… Coming to college campuses everywhere. Release the frogs.”

Why hasn’t this been reported in our media?


All around the world Universities are falling victim to Social Justice Warriors and other limp-wristed, panty-waist types seeking safe spaces and shutting down free speech in the very places that free speech should be encouraged.

If it isn’t Black Lives Matter it is various gay groups or Muslim Associations howling down freedom of speech.

Well, it’s happened here and to my knowledge hasn’t yet been reported by the mainstream media despite the awful precedence this sets.

Back in August, there was a debate involving Lindsay Perigo and Susan Devoy at the University of Auckland. The moot was “That this House would ban religious symbols in public.”

Lindsay Perigo was howled down as he gave his speech. Strangely there hasn’t been a murmur or a mutter from Susan Devoy about the issue and likewise nothing in the mainstream media. Why is that?

I’ll let Lindsay Perigo explain:

This is the speech I delivered almost in its entirety in my capacity as special commentator, along with Race Relations Commissioner Dame Susan Devoy, at Monday night’s semi-final in the intra-university Next Generation Debates series at Auckland University. I say “almost in its entirety” because a gaggle of Muslims became very vocal near the end of my speech and demanded, successfully, I be stopped at once for having gone over my allocated time. The point at which I was shut down is noted in the text below.

What a member of Young New Zealand First called “magnificent pandemonium” followed, with epithets flying back and forth, Dame Susan waiving her right of rebuttal and storming off from the table we were both sharing.    Read more »

Jordan doesn’t want this cartoon shown because it mocks ISIS and Allah

What kind of a country objects to a cartoon on an anti-Islamic State facebook page mocking an evil terrorist group by poking fun at how they imagine they are close to Allah? I suggest it is  country that harbours extreme views and is sympathetic towards the group’s goal of creating an Islamic caliphate.

Jordan has arrested eminent cartoonist and political satirist Nahed Hattar for a cartoon which shows a conversation between a jihadist and Allah in paradise.They arrested him for the crime of insulting religion. I searched for his facebook page but Facebook appear to be yet again enforcing the Sharia on behalf of their Islamic overlords.



The cartoon is translated below by by Clarion Project Arabic Affairs Analyst Anwar el-Iraqi.

Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will get you 18 months in a British prison

In Britain Hate preachers spread hate with impunity. Muslim protesters hold signs threatening death to infidels who insult the prophet but when a British man says something hurtful to a woman on the street he gets sent to prison for 18 months? It is yet another example in Europe of truth being stranger than fiction.

...Prosecutor Lynne Shirley told the court that Hennigan stopped Ms Ford and asked whether she needed directions. Ms Shirley said: ‘It seemed a normal conversation and she walked off but as she did Hennigan said “I don’t agree with inter-racial relationships. I like natural. I prefer white children”. She said her children were natural and he said “I’m just saying”. The incident made her feel very upset, hurt, out of place and distressed.’

Hennigan sounds like a mule’s posterior, sure. The guy is undoubtedly a racist, yes. But that doesn’t excuse the fact that he’s been imprisoned for 18 months over “language.” Not terrorism, not violence, not theft… But mean words. Let that sink in.
