Fat Freddy, emir of Bruzzelistan:
‘”Any form of insult is from now on punishable, whether it be racist, homophobic or otherwise” â€” Brussels Mayor Freddy Thielemans’
Look out for “otherwise”- that’s the one that’s got “Islamophobia” in it.
“The saddest part about the recent decision in Brussels, Belgium, to fine “offensive language” is how utterly predictable it was. When you combine the inherently expansionist character of government with the nanny-state sensibilities of the modern technocrat, the necessary outcome is total control of the individual â€” his or her comprehensive subsumption into the collective will. Since there is no more potent expression of individuality than speech, and since there is no more potent concentration of government and soft-core fasco-nannyism than in the eurozone and its neighbors, we all knew it wasÂ coming.” Â (BCF)
