Tolerance Cuts Both Ways: Freedom for the Speech We Hate
By John W. Whitehead
March 20, 2018

“Those who created this country chose freedom. With all of its dangers. And do you know the riskiest part of that choice they made? They actually believed that we could be trusted to make up our own minds in the whirl of differing ideas. That we could be trusted to remain free, even when there were very, very seductive voices - taking advantage of our freedom of speech - who were trying to turn this country into the kind of place where the government could tell you what you can and cannot do.”—Nat Hentoff

Tolerance cuts both ways.

This isn’t an easy pill to swallow, I know, but that’s the way free speech works, especially when it comes to tolerating speech that we hate.

The most controversial issues of our day—gay rights, abortion, race, religion, sexuality, political correctness, police brutality, et al.—have become battlegrounds for those who claim to believe in freedom of speech but only when it favors the views and positions they support.

“Free speech for me but not for thee” is how my good friend and free speech purist Nat Hentoff used to sum up this double standard.

This haphazard approach to the First Amendment has so muddied the waters that even First Amendment scholars are finding it hard to navigate at times.

It’s really not that hard.

The First Amendment affirms the right of the people to speak freely, worship freely, peaceably assemble, petition the government for a redress of grievances, and have a free press.

Nowhere in the First Amendment does it permit the government to limit speech in order to avoid causing offense, hurting someone’s feelings, safeguarding government secrets, protecting government officials, insulating judges from undue influence, discouraging bullying, penalizing hateful ideas and actions, eliminating terrorism, combatting prejudice and intolerance, and the like.

Unfortunately, in the war being waged between free speech purists who believe that free speech is an inalienable right and those who believe that free speech is a mere privilege to be granted only under certain conditions, the censors are winning.

We have entered into an egotistical, insulated, narcissistic era in which free speech has become regulated speech: to be celebrated when it reflects the values of the majority and tolerated otherwise, unless it moves so far beyond our political, religious and socio-economic comfort zones as to be rendered dangerous and unacceptable.

London Police Edit ‘Thought Crime’ Threat After Ridicule Online
by Liam Deacon20 Mar 20181185
People can be “charged” with an “offence” if their actions are within the law but their “reasons for doing it” are perceived as illegal hate by others, London police have said, before withdrawing the claim.

Social media users began drawing attention to the Metropolitan force’s new, and highly unusual, definition of a ‘hate crime’ on the 16th of this month. It remained like that until the 18th, according to Google cache, before the police edited it again on Monday.

The definition did not match that given by the College of Policing or Crown Prosecution Service, and critics online claimed it could be read as a threat against “thought crimes”.

Breitbart London asked the Metropolitan Police for comment on their change of heart over hate crime, but no reply had been received at the time of publication.

“London’s Metropolitan Police inform you that you can be arrested for doing something that isn’t illegal, if someone else thinks you had bad thoughts while doing it,” joked U.S. commentator Jeff Jacoby.

“In 21st century Britain you could be charged with a hate crime, if ANYONE THINKS your actions could have been motivated by hate,” added another Twitter user.

“The Met seems to imply that a person can face two charges, one for the assault, and another for ‘their reasons for doing it.’ That is not true,” added criminal barrister Matthew Scott in an extensive blog post.

He explained that “although there are some cases where doing an act is illegal irrespective of your state of mind, there are no cases where your state of mind can make you guilty of an offence if you don’t actually do anything capable of amounting to a crime”.

Mr. Scott accused the Met of writing “gobbledegook” and argued that “a badly written website misleads the public and damages the reputation of the Metropolitan Police”.

University Police Use The “Library of Harm” To Flag Students’ Words
March 20, 2018

By MassPrivateI

It seems like not a day goes by, where law enforcement isn’t inventing new ways to spy on Americans.

According to a recent article in the Daily Progress, the University of Virginia Police Department is using a company called Social Sentinel (SS) to spy on college students and faculty Tweets, etc.

Legal experts say they’re concerned about privacy and creating a surveillance state, but police say the program is just one more tool in the race to stay on top of online threats and messages.

To mask the real purpose behind spying on students and faculty, university police are calling their new spying officer the “community service and crime prevention coordinator”.

Perhaps they should call what it really is, the social media spying coordinator.

So do you think the Russians are to be fully trusted and that they dont have an agenda of their own? I think that any person putting their faith in Russian 'honesty' will get played by them.

Do you think their annexation of the Crimea was the act of a country that can be trusted?

the crimeans voted to join russia

if you look deeper into the ukrainian coup you'll find the hand of people like victoria nuland and george soros who basically orchestrated that coup, which then forced russias hand

Russia was not the aggressor, it just reacted to deep state moves to erode the buffer zone that was created during detante in the last cold war

how would you like it if another country manufactured coups so that they could move missiles closer to you?

Universities cannot be 'safe spaces' say MPs as they warn of 'chilling effect' on free speech
By Olivia Rudgard, Social Affairs Correspondent
27 March 2018 • 12:01am

Universities cannot be "safe spaces", MPs have said, as they warn of the "chilling effect" on free speech of attempts by students to declare some views unacceptable.

A report by the Joint Committee on Human Rights argues that a university should be "an environment where a range of opinions should be heard and explored.

"Minority views should not be barred from student union premises."

Many student unions have "safe space" policies which put restrictions on views or expressions which can make some groups feel unsafe.

The concept is "either too broad or very vague and therefore we do not find it helpful", the report said.

Safe space policies have been blamed for stopping certain speakers from attending university events, with groups including humanists and anti-abortion activists telling the committee that student unions "were making arbitrary decisions about the views to which students should be exposed".

'Anti-Semitism' hysteria - a scam to silence free speech and exposure of Israel Apartheid

If you want to see racism in action - check out the Jewish National Fund (JNF)
Andrew Cheetham
2 hours ago



Expose the Jewish National Fund (JNF)
What Is the JNF?

The Jewish National Fund (JNF) was created in 1901 at the Fifth Zionist Congress in Switzerland. Its purpose has always been to acquire land in historic Palestine for– according to its Memorandum of Association– “the purpose of settling Jews on such lands and properties.” Crucially, this land could never again be sold or leased to non-Jews.

Today, the JNF enjoys charitable status in over 50 countries worldwide, including Canada. While the JNF asserts itself as an environmental NGO, it operates as a quasi-governmental body in Israel.

Through planting trees and supporting agriculture, the JNF claims to be “redeeming the land” and “greening the desert”, but in fact, the JNF’s parks and forests are largely situated over depopulated and demolished Palestinian villages, and therefore, serve as a means of erasing the historical presence of Palestinians, and make it difficult for Palestinians to exercise their right to return to their lands as enshrined under international law.

Today, the JNF is complicit in Israel’s illegal occupation of Palestinian territories, supporting West Bank settlements and settlers in East Jerusalem. The JNF funds infrastructure for illegal settlements in the Jordan Valley—located deep in the West Bank, as well as in East Jerusalem and other parts of the Occupied Palestinian Territories. While these settlements expand with the aid of the JNF, more water and lands are being stolen from the Palestinians. In illegally-annexed East Jerusalem, the JNF, through its wholly-owned subsidiary Himnuta, has been evicting Palestinians from their homes and providing these properties to the settler organization, Elad.
The JNF Supports Israel’s Discriminatory Policies

The JNF also has a direct role in implementing Israel’s discriminatory policies against its Palestinian citizens, who make up 20% of Israel’s citizenry. 13% of the land in Israel is owned by the JNF.

Israel’s Attorney General ruled that the JNF practises institutional discrimination against Israel’s Palestinian citizens, and that this should no longer be permitted. Nonetheless, the practising of institutional discrimination persists. In the court case, the JNF’s response to a petition filed against it stated:

The JNF is not the trustee of the general public in Israel. Its loyalty is given to the Jewish people in the Diaspora and in the state of Israel… The JNF, in relation to being an owner of land, is not a public body that works for the benefit of all citizens of the state. The loyalty of the JNF is given to the Jewish people and only to them is the JNF obligated. The JNF, as the owner of the JNF land, does not have a duty to practice equality towards all citizens of the state. (JNF’s response from December 2004 to a petition filed by Adalah to the Supreme Court of Israel – HC 9205/04)

The U.S. State Department (p. 24) and the United Nations Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights have also concluded that the JNF practises institutional discrimination against Israel’s Palestinian citizens.
Canadian Tax Dollars Fund Illegal JNF Activities

Because the JNF Canada has official Canada Revenue Agency charitable status, it provides tax receipts for donations, meaning that a significant proportion of their budget effectively comes from our taxes.

Canada Park: An Egregious Example

The JNF Canada raised $15 million after the 1967 war to build Canada Park (now referred to by the JNF as Ayalon – Canada Park), a 3200 hectares park between Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, but within the Occupied Palestinian Territories. Shamefully, this “tribute to Canada and the Canadian Jewish community” was built over the ruins of three depopulated and demolished Palestinian villages – Imwas, Yalu and Deir Aiyub – as well as over lands belonging to the village of Beit Nuba. A 1986 UN Special Committee reported to the UN Secretary-General that the villagers were being denied their right of return to their land now occupied by this park built by the JNF Canada.

Stop the Jewish National Fund Campaign

Stop the JNF

Stop the Jewish National Fund is an international campaign aimed at ending the role of the Jewish National Fund (Keren Kayemet LeIsrael/JNF-KKL) in:

*the on-going displacement of indigenous Palestinians from their land
*the theft of their property
*the funding of historic and present day colonies, and
*the destruction of the natural environment

The JNF continues to serve as a global fundraiser for Israeli ethnic cleansing, occupation and apartheid. Despite its historic role in a State institution of Israel (the Israel Land Authority) and in institutionalized racism and apartheid, the JNF and its affiliate organizations enjoy charitable status in over 50 countries and many also enjoy consultative status with the United Nations. In addition to the ongoing struggles against the JNF-KKL in Palestine, the campaign is underway in Canada, France, Britain, South Africa and the United States.

The film Enduring Roots: Over a Century of Resistance to the Jewish National Fund directed by Alex Safron details the history and workings of the Jewish National Fund as well as historic and ongoing Palestinian resistance to the colonization of their land.

Theresa May launches ‘Fusion Doctrine’ – A new era of dictatorial power
30th March 2018 / United Kingdom

y TruePublica: In May 2015 David Cameron made a speech that was a warning shot of what was to come. “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.” The Independent noted at the time that as far as the government was concerned, Britain should not leave people to lead their own lives.



At the time, Theresa May was Home Secretary who had already introduced some of the most authoritarian laws Britain had ever witnessed. From banning legitimate protest to the use of secret courts, from the Investigatory Powers Act to the construction of the West’s most intrusive surveillance state – in history. The greatest skill sets of our current PM has been the suppression of free-speech, degrading of hard-won civil liberties and the slow destruction of human rights built up over the generations.

Since arriving at No10, Theresa May has been engulfed in crisis after crisis with much more to come.

But now, she has got her mojo back. After the highly dubious Skripal nerve gas incident, May has revealed her hand through right-wing mouthpiece, The Telegraph.

These are just some of the terms and phrases being rolled out in what can only be best described as the most dictatorial regime being imposed upon British citizens ever.



“The Prime Minister has instructed the intelligence services to use social media to disrupt misinformation as she promised to use “every capability at our disposal” to defeat the new threat facing Britain.

Mrs May revealed a major new effort to ensure every Government agency and department views national security as their priority, rather than just police and security services.

The plan, dubbed the Fusion Doctrine, aims to tackle the evolving threats posed by cyber warfare and so-called fake news

Security experts said the UK’s soft-power capabilities and ability to counter propaganda online will form part of the new front line.

“… and every department, including the Environment Agency and HMRC must play a role.

“… including by “suffocating” hashtags on Twitter

“… ensuring Ofcom shuts down media organisations which do not meet high British standards and funding units to counter fake news are all part of the plan, sources said.”

“… and countering misinformation will be an important weapon in the armoury.”



First, one has to say that this doctrine is exactly that. It is a stated principle of government policy. This is what the citizens of Britain can now expect. The surveillance state has just announced it has no limits. There will be no debate with our elected representatives because that’s what doctrine’s are.



In April last year, TruePublica outlined how Theresa May was to transform the country in an article entitled “Britain To Become A One Party, Authoritarian Surveillance State.” We reported, amongst others that Theresa May “had scarily authoritarian, anti-democratic and anti-free speech views.”

Brexit has confounded her ability to reach these goals, but the Skripal case has refuelled these ambitions where civil liberties and human rights are considered little more than an inconvenience.

Step out of line and you can expect one of many government departments to react. It is bad enough that local authorities can fine you for feeding pigeons, that the BBC can hunt you down for non-payment of their licence fee using laws designed to apprehend terrorists – but having a dissenting voice or non-conformist attitudes and now the government is coming for you.

Independent news sources will be censored as the Internet will be. Platforms that democratises free speech and new ideas will be stopped from operating. Anything that the government does not like the sound of will be categorised as misinformation, fake news, or a threat and ‘dealt with.’

Who exactly will determine what organisations do not meet these so-called British high standards? And what are those unpublished standards? What is misinformation in the eyes of a government under siege by its own comrades?

Authoritarianism is defined thus: “the enforcement or advocacy of strict obedience to authority at the expense of personal freedom.” This is the new era for the citizens of Britain. Even the mainstream media agreed that personal freedom was under attack a few years until they were recently brought to heel.



The Telegraph – Britain’s surveillance society ‘beyond Orwell’s worst fears’

The Guardian – Britain rated worst in Europe for protecting privacy



And despite being described by Edward Snowden as “the most extreme surveillance in the history of western democracy,” Snowden also pointed out that Britain “goes farther than many autocracies”.



As of 2013, the UK already had one surveillance camera for every 11 people in the country and was confirmed as the most physically surveilled nation in the world.

Britain now has the dubious title of being the world’s leading surveillance state in terms of scope and capability but now we are entering a completely new era. This will be one depicted by a full-blown dystopian posture at home and the lapdog mouthpiece of American aggression abroad.

After 20 months in office, Theresa May has finally had her two best weeks – falsely accusing a sovereign state of an attack against Britain without providing any real solid evidence and using that as cover to impose further restrictions on her own citizens.

Is this the best Britain can do?

Amazon patent admits it will listen in real-time for “trigger words” that could get you arrested and imprisoned
Posted on April 6, 2018

Lance Johnson–An Amazon patent, filed in June 12, 2017, reveals a massive conspiracy to spy on you using a “voice sniffer algorithm.” If approved by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, this artificial intelligence can be embedded inside Amazon devices, including the Amazon Alexa.

The “voice sniffer algorithm” would take advantage of the microphones already built into Amazon devices. The technology would permit Alexa and other Amazon devices to listen to your conversations in real-time to identify “trigger words” that can give the tech giant insight into your personal life. The AI spy tech will learn about your personality, interests, purchasing habits, or glean any useful detail about your private life.

The “trigger words” from your private conversations could then be sent to third parties so any organization can target market their products to you. The third parties could include political organizations that want to motivate you to action or manipulate you otherwise. The data could even be used by law enforcement agencies to determine who might commit a crime in the future. The “voice sniffer algorithm” will help law enforcement closely watch a perceived threat to society.

German police union chief proposes taking children away from ‘anti-Semitic parents’
Published time: 5 Apr, 2018 03:19
Edited time: 5 Apr, 2018 12:54

Authorities should be allowed to take children away from parents who express anti-Semitic views, the head of Germany’s 2nd largest police union has stated, without elaborating on how or when such measures would be enforced.

“Authorities need to act decisively [against anti-Semitism] including when the aggression comes from migrants,” Rainer Wendt, head of the German Police Union (DPoIG) told Augsburger Allgemeine newspaper on Wednesday.

“If children are raised to become anti-Semites we shouldn't be afraid to take them away from their families.” He went on to accuse many school administrators of ignoring the problem, saying “they act according to the mantra 'it doesn't exist in my school.'”

Homeland Security to compile database of journalists and ‘media influencers’
Plans also allow for media coverage being tracked in more than 100 languages

Shehab Khan
@shehabkhan
22 hours ago

The US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is looking to create a database that would monitor news outlets, journalists and “media influencers” around the world, it has been reported.

A contractor is being sought to identify “any and all” coverage that relates to the department and particular events.

DHS is looking to track more than 290,000 global news sources, including online, print, broadcast, television, and radio, according to a request for information.

It will also look at trade and industry publications, local, national and international outlets, and social media, according to documents.

The plans also encompass media coverage being tracked in more than 100 languages including Arabic, Chinese, and Russian, with instant translation of articles into English.

The DHS Media Monitoring plan would allow for “24/7 access to a password protected, media influencer database, including journalist, editors, correspondents, social media influencers, bloggers etc” to identify “any and all media coverage related to the Department of Homeland Security or a particular event.”

YouTube deletes 5 million videos for content violation
April 24, 2018
By Paresh Dave

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) – YouTube, owned by Alphabet Inc’s Google , deleted about 5 million videos from its platform for content policy violations in last year’s fourth quarter before any viewers saw them, it said in a new report that highlighted its response to pressure to better police its online community.

YouTube has been criticized by governments that say it does not do enough to remove extremist content, and by advertisers, such as Procter & Gamble Co and Under Armour Inc that briefly boycotted the service when they unwittingly ran ads alongside videos the companies deemed inappropriate.

YouTube said in the report Monday that automating enforcement through software “is paying off” in quicker removals. The company said it did not have comparable data from prior quarters.

YouTube said it still needed an in-house team of humans to verify automated findings on an additional 1.6 million videos that were removed only after some users watched the clips.

The automated system did not identify another 1.6 million videos that YouTube took down once they were reported to it by users, activist organizations and governments.
