Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances. -- First Amendment, Constitution of the united States of America, ratified 1791.
In the united States, the individual God-given right to freedom of speech is spelled out distinctly as one that government shall not legislate away; Congress shall make no law ... abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press. The united States is experiencing a form of abridging the freedom of speech through political correctness. One should not say certain things because it is offensive to someone. This has become the stance of the left liberal progressives to thwart truth about issues common to all. Free speech zones are present on college and university campuses while many events have "designated areas" for those individuals expressing an alternative viewpoint to the event.
While we in the united States are experiencing an attempt to derail our free speech, it does still exist. However, citizens of other nations are not so fortunate. Some nations in Europe have laws that infringe on and abridge the freedom of speech. France and Denmark are two.
In Denmark, a man was convicted and fined after expressing himself freely on the social media outlet Facebook. Flemming Nielsen compared Islam to Nazism in a post that read:
"The ideology of Islam is just as loathsome, disgusting, suppressive and dehumanizing as Nazism. The mass immigration we are now seeing is the most destructive (thing) that has happened for the Danish society in recent history."
Nielsen wrote the truth about the "religion of pieces;" however, prosecutors argued his comments were "racist." Islam is not a race. He was fined 1600 kroner for comments considered "insulting and degrading" toward followers of Islam.
Denmark prosecutors were able to convict and fine Nielsen under their criminal code for racial offenses. While Nielsen claimed he was referring to Islamists and not all Muslims, the prosecutor, Bernie Schnack disagreed, claiming there was no difference.
Speaking to a Danish television crew, Neilsen stated, "I see it as a principle. They must not be allowed to suppress people's freedom of speech."
In this particular incident, Neilsen does not have any appeal rights because the fine is not over 3,000 kroner.
Denmark accepted 20,000 mostly Muslim "refugees" last year. Back in October, ministers introduced a plan to mandate migrants to take sexual consent lessons after a spate of rapes committed by immigrants.
"34 per cent of convicted rapists in Denmark between 2003 and 2014 were either immigrants or descended from them," reports the Daily Mail.
As we have previously highlighted, Facebook has teamed up with the German government and an ex-member of the Stasi to track down and punish Germans who make anti-migrant posts on social media.
A Dutch man also received a home visit from the police after he criticized his country's open borders refugee policy as a "bad plan" on Twitter.
Freedom of speech, a God-given individual unalienable right, is not respected, upheld, defended or protected in many nations in Europe. As illegal alien Muslim invaders continue to fill up Europe's nations, the loathsomeness that is Islam will spread while citizens of Europe will be stifled. The oppression that is a strong proponent of Islam is already in Europe as these degenerates who have raped and pillaged are defended while those expressing the truth are being hushed.
In a stroke of pure idiocy, ministers in Denmark actually wanted Muslims to "take sexual consent lessons." Someone give them a sign. The followers of Mohammed, may pig's blood be flung upon him and a ham stuck in his mouth, are mimicking the illiterate, pedophile, misogynistic, thieving, war-mongering lunatic. Government goons cannot seem to understand that this barbaric theocracy hiding in some semblance of "religion" seeks to conquer nations, convert its citizens, kill those who resist or will not convert, commit rapes as part of the conquering as the Qu'ran teaches, and turn around to play the "victim."
The absolute infuriating part is the participation of the social media network, Facebook, actually working in opposition to the freedoms Zuckerberg and his ilk enjoy in this nation. However, the child, possible idea stealer, sell-out, freedom-denying Zuckerberg operates the social network as if he is some type of god. Zuckerberg is a Hussein Soetoro supporter and has frequently been in meetings with the illegal usurper providing ideas on restricting freedom of speech -- but only where the truth exists on almost any issue. This liberal will allow the vilest content when those practitioners of Islam post. However, post the truth about Islam, mention God and/or Christianity, post a comment, and he and his ilk find a violation of terms of service; or insult the usurper or him, the powers react by removing the post (unless it can be used to prosecute a member in a nation with speech laws) or giving the member a ban, sometimes permanently.
Facebook previously teamed up with "Erkel" Merkel to stifle German citizens from posting anti-illegal alien Muslim invasion of Germany. Merkel is set to follow in the footsteps of Hilter while Zuckerberg will follow in the steps of George Soros -- selling out individuals who "don't go along with the program." Zuckerberg won't stop there. He will work with other nations as well that have "speech limitation" laws. It is true that the enemy inside the gates are the most dangerous.
In the case of Flemming Nielsen, it shouldn't matter whether he was talking about Islamists or Muslims as a whole, period. Islam is Islam. Those practitioners of Islam who do not speak out against the oppression, misogyny, pedophilia, rape, murder, torture, thieving, and enslaving acts of Muslims are complicit and supportive of the ravings of the lunatic Mohammed, may pig's blood be flung upon him and a ham stuck in his mouth. These degenerates support implementation of Sharia law, which includes punishment for insulting their lunatic madman.
So far, the governments of European nations and the European Union are helping the conquest of the continent by Muslims along through implementation of some forms of Sharia law -- speech limitation, women covering themselves, etc. Just as George Soros, as a young boy, helped deliver members of the Jewish community to the Nazis, Zuckerberg is helping several nations of Europe to stifle what God has given in order that Islam may conquer the continent. Shame on both of the criminals!
Technically, Zuckerberg can limit what is on the social media site since Facebook is not Congress. Only Congress cannot restrict speech. However, Zuckerberg will follow instructions from Hussein Soetoro to limit truth where possible and promote lies and deceit using his probably plagiarized internet site.
From some of the comments on the article at Infowars.com, the propaganda rhetoric is in full force. A poster named "T-man" wrote, "Truth is racist and saying 'I'm not racist, I'm just telling the truth' is racist also." Another individual going by "Robert Gantry" hints at the persecution of the Jews is "poor little jooze" propaganda. Poster, "what you see is a fraud" referred to the Holocaust as the "holohoax" and used the term "fake Jews." Naturally, a posting "war" of sorts followed as others tried to correct these contributors.
In the meantime, the united States government is moving to illegally, unlawfully and unconstitutionally limit freedoms of its citizens as seen with the protest in Oregon, the Bundy Ranch incident in Nevada, the attempts to infringe on the Second Amendment, and violations of the other recognized rights contained in the Constitution. Not all God-given unalienable rights are given written recognition in the Constitution but those are covered under the Ninth Amendment. Our rights preceded the government, the Constitution and the formation of the united States. Yet, it is the government and left liberal progressives who seek to limit what they have no authority to limit. At the rate government is moving, we could be facing the same scenario here that citizens of Germany and Denmark are facing now.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter.
