EU Human Rights orders British Press not to tell people when Terrorists are Muslim
In what is being described as a “crackdown on free speech,” the EU Human Rights Commission has advised the British press NOT to tell people when a terrorist is a Muslim. Why? Because they say it is feeding “hate speech.” Good thing they left the EU.
Messed up priorities
The European Commission on Racism and Intolerance (ECRI) blamed the upswing in “intolerance and hate crimes” against Muslims on the way the British press writes their stories. Actually, could it be that Muslims are causing so much trouble that the people are getting sick of it? Of course not, that narrative would never fit the EU’s plans.
The Daily Mail reported,
“European human rights chiefs have told the British press it must not report when terrorists are Muslim.
The recommendations came as part of a list of 23 meddling demands to Theresa May’s government on how to run the media in an alarming threat to freedom speech.
The report, drawn up by the Council of Europe’s human rights watchdog, blamed the recent increase in hate crimes and racism in the UK on the ‘worrying examples of intolerance and hate speech in the newspapers, online and even among politicians’, although the research was done before the EU referendum campaign had even begun.
The suggestions sent to Downing Street urging the UK Government to reform criminal law and freedom of the press and in a brutal criticism of the British press, the report recommends ministers ‘give more rigorous training’ to journalists.
But UK ministers firmly rebutted the remarkable demands, telling the body: ‘The Government is committed to a free and open press and does not interfere with what the press does and does not publish, as long as the press abides by the law.'”
‘Rigorous training?’ You mean indoctrination or “re-education.”
“It is no coincidence that racist violence is on the rise in the UK at the same time as we see worrying examples of intolerance and hate speech in the newspapers, online and even among politicians.” ECRI Chair Christian Ahlund
Thus far, Britain has told them to stuff their demand. But these things are the exact reason why the Brexit occurred.
How does it affect us? With the turnover of the internet to a multinational company, and potentially to the UN, this very thing could happen here only worse. At least England could say no. Our fate will entirely depend on this upcoming election.
Our mainstream media is already an arm of corrupt politicians and fools. How much worse will it be if there is a crackdown on freedom of the press here – to include the internet press?
