Free Speech on Trial: What Message Is Being Sent?

The spread of jihad is irreparably undermining Europe’s post-War reputation as a continent of security and peace.

In addition, free speech seems increasingly regarded by mainstream politicians as dangerousand archaic. Diversity of opinion often appears seen as an obstacle to multiculturalism, the objective of which, ironically, is diversity.

    The object of multiculturalism is diversity – in theory. In practice, as the article mentions, it results in the opposite, at least when Islam is added to the mix.

    It is tempting to think that at least some of the proponents of multiculturalism understood all too well that it would actually result in less diversity, that it would in fact weaken people’s ties to their neighbourhoods, cities, countries, cultural identities, and generally create a disunited, bland and spiritless mash as the resulting “culture”. But people with such a colorless identity are much more easily controlled than those with a strong sense of belonging to a particular culture, and being proud of it. And this was perhaps the principal reason that multiculturalism has been pushed so consistently all along.

  • The looney left is obsessed with the word “diversity”.

    That does not mean diversity of thought.

      They are obsessed with the word, but they have no tolerance for diversity in any shape or form.

    For some strange reason totalitarians, fascists and tyrants cannot abide by freedom, especially personal freedom such as freedom of expression. It threatens their power and control.
