Under the Islamic system, blasphemy is everything a Muslim doesn’t like to hear.
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.
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.
