The end of free speech....
Jan 20, 2014

Big Brother himself could have written the following, extracted from the European Framework National Statute for the Promotion of Tolerance.

“Take concrete action to combat intolerance, in particular with a view to eliminating racism, colour bias, ethnic discrimination, religious intolerance, totalitarian ideologies, xenophobia, anti- Semitism, anti-feminism and homophobia.” It goes further, to state that, “This formulation does not go into detail within the subsets listed. Thus, religious intolerance is understood to cover Islamophobia, anti-Christianity, etc. Ethnic discrimination is understood to cover anti-Roma (gypsies) activities.”

So basically this is a license to curtail free speech by the EU, and could quite easily extend to criticism of the EU itself, or twisted to any number of "crimes", how amazingly prophetic Orwell was. This article sums up nicely the dangers of this insane "framework".

“The most puzzling development in politics during the last decade is the apparent determination of Western European leaders to re-create the Soviet Union in Western Europe.”
