More hate speech laws are exactly the opposite of what's needed

If we give in to threats from such people, we do not deserve our freedom.

Letting terrorists dictate what we may read or see

Terrorists are now exploiting the YouTube clip Innocence of Muslims to foment hatred and curb the free speech of democracies – and I fear they will succeed with the timid West:

Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah made a rare public appearance on Monday to tell the United States it would face more anger and grave repercussions across the Muslim world unless it suppressed a film that demeans the Prophet Mohammad. (Bolt has more)

Bringing Dark Ages to the streets of Sydney

… US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton described the movie as “sinister”, Prime Minister Julia Gillard called it “repulsive”.

“A Symptom of Deeper Muslim Frustrations”

Australians are just not submissive enough:

 I don’t think it was about the film at all. I think there were people there who were angry about the film, but one of the most revealing aspects of it to me was that no-one, it seems, who was there had actually seen it. …

By bandying about these adjectives Western leaders are creating excuses and even encouraging the anger which is felt in the Muslim world. …  Article at Herald Sun

Religious vilification laws tabled

New laws introduced into the ACT Legislative Assembly will make it illegal to vilify a person or group in the ACT on the basis of their religious beliefs or practices.

Attorney-General Simon Corbell says changes to the discrimination bill seek to make it unlawful for a person to publicly incite hatred towards another person based on their religion.

Mr Corbell says a controversial pamphlet that was circulated about a proposed mosque in Gungahlin prompted the legislation.

“Some of the material we’ve seen circulated in our community, always anonymously because of the very vitriolic nature of it, is simply unacceptable,” he said.

“It has led to the Government saying that perhaps we need a provision in our discrimination act to deal with this form of discrimination also.”

Good dhimmies, our cretinous ‘public servants’.
