The Threat To Free Speech

When the law forbids us to insult or offend somebody, to insult or offend a religion, race, skin colour or sexual preference, free speech and other important democratic rights are under threat.

When the law then goes on to say that anyone accused of these offences has no right to defend themselves and the word of the accuser is sufficient evidence on which to obtain a conviction then we have abandoned justice and returned to the law of the medieval witch hunts.

These stupid laws insult the public and threaten free speech

Beware the siren voices of the left who hide their abhorrence of freedom and invividuality behind a mask of political correctness. Everything we say and do could be interpreted by somebody as aggressive or insulting. There have been cases of a look being deemed racially or sexually harrassing.

Stand up for your right to express your opinions by being grown up enough to ignore things you overhear that might not even refer to you but could equally be said because you behaved like an arse towards somebody else.

Nobody promised life was fair. And making life sterile by imposing conformity on everybody will not actually make life any fairer.

    If the Lefties had their way, virtually every stand-up comedian would be doing stir for offending one of their precious minorities or vulnerable groups.
    Anyway, offending people is fun. I’m not a particularly violent man so I will happily resort to a heap of foul-mouthed yet intimidatingly articulate abuse on anyone I feel deserves it.
