Mark Steyn: Behead All Those Who Insult Free Speech

Mark Steyn

U.N. Honcho No. 2:

“Free speech is a privilege which involves also the need for respect, the need to avoid provocations.”

Ever heard of the Universal Declaration of Privileges? WTF?

Encouraged by President Obama’s and Secretary Clinton’s prostrations before the howling mob, the U.N.’s No. 2 honcho explains free speech:

Free speech is a “gift given to us by the [Universal] Declaration of Human Rights,” said Deputy Secretary General of the United Nations Jan Eliasson during a press conference on October 2nd at UN headquarters in New York.  It is “a privilege,” Eliasson said, “that we have, which in my view involves also the need for respect, the need to avoid provocations.”

Free speech is a gift given to us in 1948 by U.N. officials? Who knew?

The only appropriate response of free-born peoples to such a statement is: **** off, ******. Free speech is not in the gift of minor Swedish timeserving hack bureaucrats, either to grant or withdraw.

Where is the “respect”, by the way, in “Behead the enemies of Islam”? Under the not so subtle evolution of “free speech” advanced by the likes of Obama and Eliasson, you’ll be shackled by “respect” and “the need to avoid provocations” but kindergartners will still be able to parade around the local park demanding Behead all those who insult the Prophet.”

In the end, the one-way multiculturalism of craven squishes like Eliasson will destroy our world. Nuts to him and to the U.N.

“The UN is a collection of evil windbags…”

Truer words were never spoken.

  1. During Brother Steyn’s persecution by the Free Speech Inquisition in Canada, he unearthed the following absolutely stunning quote from a certain Dean Steacy, a bozo who fancies himself the “lead investigator” of a farce masquerading under the laughable “Canadian Human Rights Commission” label:

    “Freedom of speech is an
    American concept, so I don’t give it any value.”

    We should all remember this the next time some lefty sneeringly throws back the concept of “American exceptionalism” in our faces.

    There’s a reason the drafters of that document did not call it the Declaration of Human Privleges.

  2. Free speech is not a gift, but a human necessity so as to be able to fight lies with truth, which of course isn’t possible if one have to avoid offending the liars. Any other definitions of Free Speech should be fought with the truth, that they can only serve less honest purposes.

  3. Well, that is the rub Mr. Eliasson. YOU articulated through the use of Free Speech, a statement in which YOU stated, “my view involves also the need for respect, the need to avoid provocations.”

    That is just the point of Free Speech, you moron. The articulation of ‘your’ view (with out fear of punishment or imprisonment).

    Furthermore, Thus far, despite the best efforts of the Manchurian in Chief and his incompetent Secretary of State, Catastrophe Clinton, the United Nations does not make or determine American law.

    So go back to your masters at the Ministry of Information. Because no one who values freedom and liberty is buying the ‘new’ definition of what Free Speech is put out by the Ministry.
