Australia’s first female Muslim MP wants to ban criticism of Islam

Anne Aly, Australia’s first female Muslim member of parliament, is pushing for a crackdown on free speech in hopes of expanding race-based discrimination laws to cover insults against those who follow the religion of Islam.

“Restrictive speech laws Down Under have banned people from saying anything which could ‘offend or insult, people because of their race,” reports Heat Street.

Offending people should not be illegal. Lying or inciting harm is already illegal so there is no need to legislate to protect people’s hurtie feelings. I have been called White Trash amongst various other insults on other blogs but I do not think that I should be able to drag the blog’s authors through the court system because they said something mean about me. Our court system is already full up with serious crimes. We should not clog up the courts with people bleating about being called names.

Now, Aly wants to add “religion” to Section 18C of the Racial Discrimination Act …

That comment is a very clever misdirection because her real agenda is not to stop people calling other races or religions dirty, ugly, stupid or fat but to change legislation to prevent people criticising her religion in any way shape or form. What she is trying to create using a Western legal system is an anti-blasphemy law just like what already exists under Islamic law.

As it stands, the the Racial Discrimination Act faces staunch opposition from Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbell, who has argued that the law has “lost its credibility” because of its far-reaching power to police language.

“Existing legislation does not criminalise those who break the law – but it can result instead in hefty fines of more than $40,000 (US)…

But Aly is doubling-down on draconian measures to protect the feelings of minorities, namely Australian Muslims.

The Islamic honor brigade is no longer confined to Saudi Arabia or Iran. Coddled by leftists, self-righteous blasphemy police are finding a way to influence common law in the West, threatening the civil rights of free people the world over, all to create an artificial force field around the religion of Islam.

Below is Section 18c of Australia’s Racial Discrimination Act:

(1) It is unlawful for a person to do an act, otherwise than in private, if:

(a)  the act is reasonably likely, in all the circumstances, to offend, insult, humiliate or intimidate another person or a group of people; and

(b)  the act is done because of the race, colour or national or ethnic origin of the other person or of some or all of the people in the group.

Note: Subsection (1) makes certain acts unlawful. Section 46P of the Australian Human Rights Commission Act 1986 allows people to make complaints to the Australian Human Rights Commission about unlawful acts. However, an unlawful act is not necessarily a criminal offence. Section 26 says that this Act does not make it an offence to do an act that is unlawful because of this Part, unless Part IV expressly says that the act is an offence.

             (2)  For the purposes of subsection (1), an act is taken not to be done in private if it:

                     (a)  causes words, sounds, images or writing to be communicated to the public; or

                     (b)  is done in a public place; or

                     (c)  is done in the sight or hearing of people who are in a public place.

             (3)  In this section:

“public place ” includes any place to which the public have access as of right or by invitation, whether express or implied and whether or not a charge is made for admission to the place.

This is what is called Creeping Sharia. It is already in New Zealand. We have had religious segregation inside a secular public pool in Mount Roskill for twelve years now. They provide at rate payers expense a free swimming programme for Muslim women ONLY that has sailed quietly under the radar for over a decade. Once New Zealand gets its first Muslim MP watch the push for Sharia law escalate slowly and carefully and watch the Useful infidels tell us that it is no big deal and there is nothing wrong with allowing one religion ( and one religion only) to segregate secular public spaces and criminalise Kiwis for disagreeing with and criticising their religion.
