Pat Condell has once again turned his wit on the opponents of free speech. He specifically condemns the persecution of Geert Wilders and Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff. Austria and Holland are not the only countries with hate speech laws that can condemn innocent critics of Islam. When warning of an existential threat becomes a crime, justice is a dead issueCondell rips into corrupt judges and corrupt, cowardly appeasers and journalists. But if we remain silent, we, too will be complicit in the death of justice and liberty. We must rise up as one with a loud voice demanding the dropping of charges against the innocents unjustly accused and reimbursement for their legal expenses. We must demand the repeal of hate speech & blasphemy laws. We must tell the United Nations to go to Hell with its resolution "Combating Defamation of Religions", soon to be voted on by the Third Committee. Free to Believe has the best petition against the resolution:
I affirm the universal human right to freely choose and express an individual’s religious beliefs.
Accordingly, I urge fellow Member States of the United Nations to focus on protecting the fundamental freedom of individuals to express their religion or beliefs and to oppose the so called “defamation of religions resolutions.”
These resolutions seek to criminalize dissenting ideas and peaceful expression of non-favored religious beliefs. The “defamation of religions” resolutions are in direct infringement of the guarantees to free speech and belief found in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
For these reasons, I ask all Member States to vote NO on “defamation of religions resolutions.”
