Default New UK law criminalizes 'politically incorrect'

NEW UK LAW COULD CRIMINALIZE ‘POLITICALLY INCORRECT’ OPINIONS
BBC: Criticism of feminism, homosexuality may be characterized as extremist


by PAUL JOSEPH WATSON | MAY 13, 2015
23013090
A chilling comment by British Prime Minister David Cameron suggests that even people who obey the law won’t be “left alone” by the state if they engage in anything the government deems to be “hate speech,” including “bigotry” and potentially criticism of homosexuality and feminism.

Preparing to introduce a new counter-terrorism bill later this month, Cameron laid the groundwork for the measures by remarking that the state not interfering with people’s lives if they “obey the law” was a “failed approach.”

“For too long, we have been a passively tolerant society, saying to our citizens: as long as you obey the law, we will leave you alone. It’s often meant we have stood neutral between different values. And that’s helped foster a narrative of extremism and grievance. This Government will conclusively turn the page on this failed approach,” Cameron stated.

The London Independent branded the quote, “the creepiest thing David Cameron has ever said.”
According to BBC News, the new anti-radicalization laws could even ensnare those who voice politically incorrect opinions.

“Would those who oppose homosexuality or multiculturalism or feminism be accused of threatening values of tolerance and equality?” asks the BBC’s Mark Easton. “Could Russell Brand’s argument against voting be regarded as threatening democracy?”

The new measures are being introduced under the justification of combating Islamic extremism, a dubious claim given that Cameron’s government has repeatedly backed actual jihadist groups in the conflicts in Libya and Syria.....

Doublethink has gone into overdrive and 'mindfucking' is the only term that adequately describes what's going on.

Classic nonlinear politics.

Constant mixed messages, counter claim and counter claim.

Enabling a government to pick and choose from past comments what it meant when an outcome arrives.

This misinformation is the tool of the dictators.

Doesn't Article 10 of the European Convention on Human Rights already have this covered?

It seems to me in point 1. They tell you what your rights should be, then in part 2. they give reasons why they can and will take these rights away from you.
