Under the Islamic system, blasphemy is everything a Muslim doesn’t like to hear.
It hasn’t taken long for Muslim MP Anne Aly to show her true colors regarding her support for Islam and Islamic blasphemy laws (which is punishable by death in muslim majority countries).
Anne Aly told The Australian there was “scope to reassess” extending section 18C, warning that the debate about racism now “extends to religion”.
So much for our “deradicalisation expert” who is now dabbling as a shari’a enforcing savage.
Insult, offend and humiliate provisions to be removed from Racial Discrimination Act
The words ‘offend’, ‘insult’ and ‘humiliate’ will be replaced with ‘harass’, while ‘intimidate’ will remain in the Act. Changes to the Act will make it illegal to racially ‘harass’ someone in an overhaul of section 18C.
Malcolm Farr rubbishes free speech in the Murdoch press:
The anti-18c brigade deny they want to be free to malign people according to their race, just as some say they are not provoking Mr Turnbull.
And they insist there is a welter of support in the broad electorate for the changes.
“It’s certainly not a top-of-mind issue for most members of the public,” senator and former Institute of Public Affairs campaigner James Patterson said on ABC radio last night.
Australia’s first female Muslim MP wants to change 18C race laws to include religion – so it is illegal to insult followers of Islam
- The nation’s first female Muslim federal MP wants religion covered in race laws
- Dr Anne Aly wants section 18C of Racial Discrimination Act to be broadened
- She argued the existing law didn’t cover people calling someone a ‘dirty Muslim’
- But she said if someone calling a person a ‘dirty Arab’ would fall under 18C law
Australia is a democracy and secular country where religion and politics are separated.
Islam however is a totalitarian ideology which has mosque, state and military all included.
“Australia’s first female federal Muslim MP Anne Aly wants racial discrimination laws broadened so it is illegal to insult followers of Islam.
Dr Aly’s call to amend racial discrimination laws to include religion comes a week after Victoria’s Multicultural Affairs Minister Robin Scott threatened to strengthen state laws that already curb the right to criticise religion.
Religious vilification laws potentially threaten secular values and open the door to blasphemy cases if they are legally exploited by religious groups.”
This is how Islam takes hold, infiltrates and then dominates societies.
18C changes ‘should cover complaints already lodged’, Turnbull told
Malcolm Turnbull is being urged to ensure that proposed changes to section 18C of the Racial Discrimination Act knock out vexatious or frivolous complaints already lodged with the Human Rights Commission.
The Senate committee reviewing the government’s shake-up to section 18C of the act will also encourage the government to provide greater guidance for the courts in interpreting the meaning of the word “harass”.
As the government attempts to overhaul section 18C, West Australian Labor MP Anne Aly yesterday said there was scope for a future Labor government to extend the section to better protect Muslims, warning that anti-Islamic sentiment had become “a new form of racism”.
The Prime Minister is proposing to reform section 18C by making it unlawful to “harass” or “intimidate” someone on the basis of their race, colour, or national or ethnic origin, and is also pushing for procedural changes at the AHRC.
The government’s Human Rights Legislation Amendment Bill 2017 will be debated today.
A bloc of Labor, Greens and crossbench senators look certain to defeat the government’s changes to the wording of section 18C, which currently makes it unlawful to “offend,” “insult” or “humiliate” someone on the basis of their race, but have an open mind to supporting process changes to streamline the handling of complaints at the commission.
As the crossbench yesterday pressed the government to split its bill, opposition legal affairs spokesman Mark Dreyfus left the door open to adopting 18C-style laws as the benchmark standard of acceptable speech in Labor’s promised consolidation of federal anti-discrimination laws.
Dr Aly told The Australian there was “scope to reassess” extending section 18C, warning that the debate about racism now “extends to religion”.
She cited cases of Muslim women having their hijabs ripped off and people being abused in the streets.
She lies. Whenever she opens her mouth she lies.
“I find it a little bit strange that someone can call you a ‘dirty Arab’ and that be covered under the bill, but if they called you a dirty Muslim, you’re not covered (under 18C),” she said. “I think there’s scope there. I’d like to see that discussion happen because I think we have definitely seen an increase in anti-Islamic rhetoric.”
That would be the least of our problems, considering all the nasty words the Mohammedans have in store for the disbelievers.
Tasmanian senator Jacqui Lambie yesterday joined Nick Xenophon, who controls three upper house seats, in ruling out support for any overhaul to the wording of 18C, suggesting the government would need to split its bill to have any chance of success. “I just spoke to the Attorney-General and I said the only way I think you’re going to get this through is if you take 18C out of the equation,” she said. “All the procedural stuff you put in one bill.
“That seems to be the talk that’s going on at the moment, but I think (the government is) going to have to split the bill. It’s as simple as that.”
She said she would receive further advice on whether to support a new legal test that would judge a breach of section 18C by the standard of a “reasonable member of the Australian community” rather than the standard of a hypothetical member of the offended group.
Senator Xenophon ruled out support for the reasonable person’s test as well as the proposed language changes at section 18C, leaving only the procedural changes on the table. “We want to see strong reforms to the process because the process has become the punishment. And that is where we are at,” he said.
“We want to see reforms to the process, which I think will go a very long way to dealing with the concerns that have been expressed about 18C.”
The government is hoping to put its changes, contained in a single bill, to the parliament for a vote by the end of the week after the legal and constitutional affairs legislation committee presents its report to the Senate later today.
The report is brief because the government’s legislation was referred for review only on Thursday. The report will contain one recommendation for parliament to pass the bill.
The Australian understands the report encourages the government to amend its legislation to ensure process changes capture active cases before the commission. The result will be to knock out frivolous claims that have already been lodged.
It will also suggest the government expand upon the meaning of “harass” in the explanatory memorandum to assist the courts when interpreting the intent of the proposed new test.
Mr Dreyfus yesterday kept alive the prospect that Labor could adopt a single standard of acceptable speech modelled on section 18C in its promised consolidation of federal anti-discrimination laws promised in the 2015 national platform. He said once in government, Labor would consult on the shape of any final changes.
This could see advocates of same-sex marriage taking legal action under 18C-type laws if they felt “offended” or “insulted” by those publicly defending the traditional definition of marriage.
