EU And UN Move To Give Away Free Speech
Here's the info about the EU:
LONDON (Reuters) - The European Union may try to draw up a media code of conduct to avoid a repeat of the furor caused by the publication across Europe of cartoons of the Prophet Mohammad, an EU commissioner said on Thursday.
In an interview with Britain’s Daily Telegraph, EU Justice and Security Commissioner Franco Frattini said the charter would encourage the media to show “prudence” when covering religion.
“The press will give the Muslim world the message: We are aware of the consequences of exercising the right of free expression,” he told the newspaper. “We can and we are ready to self-regulate that right.”
And here's the scoop on the UN:
U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan scolded the media on Thursday for continuing to publish cartoons lampooning the Prophet Mohammad and defended an attempt by Islamic nations to have a new U.N. human-rights council address religious defamation.
Is this dhimmi living in Dar Al-Islam insisting we live there too? I have never heard Kofi Enema ever speak to the Jew hating cartoons or editorials or Christian bashing that goes on daily in the Muslim world. This hypocrite has GOT TO GO.
People, our leaders are talking about giving away our Freedom of Speech. This will include all sorts of expression.
Think about this: Writing is the way we order our thoughts. When we write we are able to construct larger ideas than we can when we just let thoughts meander in our heads. Almost anytime anyone wants to create anything, they begin by putting their thoughts down on paper.
The Freedom of Speech is not just about cartoons, it is about being able to think clearly.
We can not allow our leaders to do this to us.
Considering that religion can be among the most oppressive forces on Earth, religion above all needs to be critized. We have to have the right to criticize religion. We can not relinquish this.
