France: Between Gulag and Islamistan


France bans citizen journalists from reporting violence


With thanks to Charles from LGF

The French government, in inimitable French fashion, have decided that they can prevent more riots like the intifada that tore apart French suburbs in 2005 by cracking down on free speech: France bans citizen journalists from reporting violence.

The broad drafting of the law so as to criminalize the activities of citizen journalists unrelated to the perpetrators of violent acts is no accident, but rather a deliberate decision by the authorities, said Cohet. He is concerned that the law, and others still being debated, will lead to the creation of a parallel judicial system controlling the publication of information on the Internet.

The government has also proposed a certification system for Web sites, blog hosters, mobile-phone operators and Internet service providers, identifying them as government-approved sources of information if they adhere to certain rules. The journalists’ organization Reporters Without Borders, which campaigns for a free press, has warned that such a system could lead to excessive self censorship as organizations worried about losing their certification suppress certain stories.

  1. Boy, the current regime running France is really trying to go back to those wonderful bygone days of Vichy. What’s next? Rounding up the Jews and sending them to Iran?

  2. France is becoming a part of Islam because the French people are crazy for the language of France. When someone speaks in French they become crazy. So it is a good time for Moroccan, Tunisians and Algerians to take over France and control the whole regime under Sharia & Law. So all French will have a place in the heaven with Allah and Mohammed.
