Social media users who post or share racist or anti-gay comments will face jail under newly proposed rules. Judges are being advised to order harsh punishments for those found guilty of stirring up ‘hatred’ against racial, religious, or sexual minority groups. Hatred in these cases is a euphemism for criticizing someone or hurting their feelings. -GEG
  • Critics say the proposals mean heedless insults could result in prison sentences
  • Someone who creates hate speech that threatens life should expect three years
  • Aggravating factors include activity ‘in a particularly sensitive social climate’ 

Social media users who share or comment on racist or anti-gay postings will face jail under rules proposed yesterday.

Advice for judges and magistrates recommends harsh punishments for those found guilty of stirring up hatred against racial, religious or sexual minority groups.

Among those jailed should be people who post comments or share online hate speech because they have been reckless as to whether they stir up hatred, say the proposals from the Sentencing Council

Social media users in the UK who share or comment on racist or anti-gay postings will face jail under rules proposed yesterday

Those found guilty of hate trolling by commenting or sharing social media should typically receive a sentence of six months in jail.

Anyone who is convicted of orginating hate speech that threatens anyone’s life or which is widely distributed should expect three years.

Even someone whose words or material were judged as hateful, but were not considered to have threatened life or reached a big audience, is likely to be punished with a year in jail.

But critics say the proposals will mean young people who heedlessly throw insults against racial, religious or sexual groups on the internet are at risk of prison sentences.

The recommendations, which will be subject to a three-month consultation, come at a time of deepening sensitivity to racism and abuse about sexuality online.

On top of long-standing concerns about material posted by extremists, accusations have been levelled against those in mainstream politics and other well-known individuals.

May 25, 2018 Breitbart 1

Each year, about 1,400 underage Dutch girls are blackmailed into sex slavery by young migrants, known as ‘loverboys’, who charm the teens into becoming sex partners, photograph them and then coerce them into prostitution. The men are mostly Moroccans, Turks, Caribbeans, and Roma. The vulnerable girls often come from an unstable home of lower social class. Police, social workers and charities ignore the problem out of fear of being called racist, as most grooming gangs are Muslim migrants. […]

Did Fracking Cause the Hawaii Volcano Eruption?

May 24, 2018 Jon Rappoport 1

Hawaii: Jon Rappoport makes the case that the Kilauea volcano in Hawaii was triggered by geothermal drilling by the Puna Geothermal Venture (PGV) Plant, which is only a few miles from the volcano. Geothermal deep drilling is similar to fracking in that the injection of cold water into hot rocks causes steam to fracture rocks, a process that, not only frees up the flow of oil deposits and the transfer of heat, but also can trigger earthquakes or, in this case, volcanic eruptions.

31 Bishops from Chile Offer Resignation to Pope Francis over Sex-Abuse Scandal

It is not expected that the Pope will accept the offer of resignation. […]

A good indicator of whether a behaviour is correct, moral, etc., is to ask, “What would be the result if everyone did it?” This one’s a no-brainer.

This is not about “sensitivity to racism and abuse”. It is about Neo-Bolsheviks gaining power. One of the first major acts of Communist rule in Soviet Russia after the October Revolution of 1917 was when Lenin convinced the Central Committee to take harsh measures against the press and free speech. The same thing is happening here, and for the same reason. These restrictions are the first steps of much worse things to come.
