Irish Bill Would Impose Full Bore Totalitarianism


    from Moonbattery:

    Ireland has succumbed to moonbattery, which is incompatible with liberty. Consequently, the country is moving to abolish free speech:

    The proposed Criminal Justice (Incitement to Violence or Hatred and Hate Offences) Bill 2022 would criminalize the possession of material deemed hateful. … The law would allow for sweeping authoritarian measures in defining opposing viewpoints hateful.

    Dissident speech is designated as “hate speech” so that authorities can justify suppressing it.

    TRUTH LIVES on at

    Even before addressing the crime of possession of harmful material, the law would “provide for an offence of condoning, denying or grossly trivialising genocide, war crimes, crimes against humanity and crimes against peace.”

    What it means to trivialize crimes against peace, only a left-wing college professor could explain. Bottom line: if there is a chance leftists wouldn’t like it, you had better not say it, or you may end up behind bars.

    The law expressly states the intent to combat “forms and expressions of racism and xenophobia by means of criminal law.”

    We know what racism means: anything to the right of all the way left. For example, in the USA, complaining about the IRS is regarded as racist.

    As for “xenophobia,” consider that Ireland’s rulers have been displacing the population so fast that the Irish are expected to be a minority in their own country by 2050. Within the lifetime of people alive today, Ireland will have been erased, replaced by an outpost of Africa. Anyone who gives any indication of objecting to this will be treated as a criminal.

    What is so striking about the law is how utterly unapologetic it is in the use of criminal law to curtail not just free speech but free thought. It allows for the prosecution of citizens for “preparing or possessing material likely to incite violence or hatred against persons on account of their protected characteristics.” That could sweep deeply into not just political but literary expression.

    Those with “protected characteristics” have the power to destroy those who think incorrect thoughts.

    Stormtroopers will be deployed:

    Under this pernicious law, a judge can order the search of a home based solely on a police officer’s sworn statement that he or she has “reasonable” grounds to believe illegal material may be present in a person’s home.

    “Illegal material” may constitute anything that contradicts the government’s viewpoint.

    No doubt accessing this website will be regarded as criminal activity in Ireland, if it isn’t blocked. Last I knew, was blocked by the Pentagon, so that US servicemembers cannot access it. They are not allowed the freedom they are supposedly fighting for. Likewise, the site has been blacklisted by Google AdSense and other advertisers for being a “hate site,” severely curtailing revenue possibilities.
