People have had enough of being told what to do, what to think and what they can and can’t do online in relation to political correctness.
As part of a renewed campaign to protect Irish citizens right to freedom of speech and expression, the Irish Freedom Party intends to hold a rally opposing Justice Minister Helen McEntee’s planned “Hate Speech” legislation.
The rally with be held outside the Dáil at 2:30pm this afternoon and anyone who values freedom of speech, regardless of political affiliation are welcome.
McEntee, who rode her father’s coffin into politics following his suicide, is following in the ill fated footsteps of her predecessor, Charlie Flanagan, who aside for wishing to officially commemorate the murderous Black and Tans is also known for failing to pass Orwellian “hate speech” laws.
McEntee is no doubt under orders to pass Draconian speech restrictions in the same vain that other Western nations have implemented in recent years and “The Incitement to Hatred and Hate Crime Bill – the Hate Speech and Hate Crime Bill” is now nearing its final draft.
The legislation is allegedly designed to tackle hateful speech but experience of similar laws in the UK for example have shown that these laws are often poorly defined, and can be used to persecute those with viewpoints considered “politically incorrect”.
A new website – Protecting our human rights (www.freespeechireland.ie) has also been launched to help spread awareness of the growing threat to Freedom of Speech in Ireland.
