Free Speech On the Run, Part 2

The other story about free speech on the run is this one from the United Kingdom.

The grievances of 1776 notwithstanding, we derived our legal system, and our fundamental concepts of freedom, justice, and constitutional government from the United Kingdom. It is too simple to pass off what happens across the Atlantic as just payback for their decades-long dalliance with socialism, multiculturalism, and blindness about national defense. (Nor would that be fair in regard to the UK). Europe is our canary in the coal mine.

Or is it really hard to believe that the U.S. Congress would show any more cajones than the Brits have if a Muslim member threatened them with a mob of 10,000?

We got this story from Act! for America. The writer blogs as Archbishop Cranmer:


Lord Ahmed threatens Parliament into submission

Lord Ahmed is a repugnant individual. Not only in appearance, but in association, character and morality. And to hear that he has threatened jihad on the House of Lords if their lordships should fail to meet his demands only serves to intensify Cranmer’s loathing of the man.

It appears that a member of the House of Lords had invited the Dutch politician, Geert Wilders, to a private meeting in the Palace of Westminster. She had intended to invite her colleagues in the Lords to a private viewing of his ‘documentary’ Fitna, followed by discussion and debate in true parliamentary fashion. This is, after all, a liberal democracy, and their lordships enjoy the rights of freedom of expression and freedom of association, not to mention certain parliamentary privileges for the protection of their function in the legislature.

But no sooner had the unsuspecting baroness sent out her invitations, Lord Ahmed raised hell. It is reported that he ‘threatened to mobilise 10,000 Muslims to prevent Mr Wilders from entering the House and threatened to take the colleague who was organising the event to court’.

And so Fitna has been cancelled: it shall not now be screened in the House of Lords on 29th January.

The Pakistani Press is jubliant, and Lord Ahmed is praising Allah for delivering ‘a victory for the Muslim community’.

It is a sorry state of affairs indeed that a parliament whose liberties have been forged through centuries of religious intolerance should succumb to the threats of one intolerant Muslim. Lord Ahmed is manifesting a notion of Divine Right, and one suspects it is precisely the sort of defence of Islam that Prince Charles shall make when he is sworn ‘Defender of Faith.

The blasphemy laws are being re-forged to protect one god, one faith and one prophet; they no longer defend YHWH, Christianity, Jesus Christ or the Church of England. Lord Ahmed is not functioning as a Labour peer; he is the self-appointed khalifa of all things Islamic. He is not concerned to protect freedom of expression or freedom of speech, but to stifle debate and ensure that Parliament submits to the Dar Al-Islam.

It is for moments such as these that one might hope the Lords Spiritual might enter the fray and defend the right of the noble baroness to extend an invitation to a democratically-elected Dutch MP. Their silence is deafening. They no longer believe anything strongly for fear of causing offence; they no longer defend anything for fear of being abolished.

If Lord Ahmed had threatened Cranmer with ’10,000 Muslims to prevent Mr Wilders from entering the House’, His Grace would have assured his Lordship of 100,000 people of all faiths and none to prevent the Muslims from preventing Mr Wilders from entering the House.There are occasions when turning the other cheek is sheer folly.

Gordo Lordo Ahmed is a terrorist supporting monkey. He should have his Lordship revoked, and of course he never should have been given one in the first place.

It's a damn shame the Queen and Prince Charles are both so Dhim
and clueless, and weak titular leaders that they probably don't even think of getting up the cojones to speak out to the public and the MPs to maybe try waking-the-effin-Mecca up and making the tiniest efforts to save Mother England.

Phony Lord Ahmed should be sanctioned at least and probably charged for calling for violence and insurrection. 'Fitna' should be shown, and the cops and the army should stand ready to put down and stop the rioters with any means necessary.

And to punish the Lord further 'Fitna' should be shown on BBC1 during prime time and all schools should be required to show it to everyone over 18.

The BNP doesn't want to kill, convert or enslave all non-white Brits. There is no comparison between Griffin and Geert Wilders either. Wilders is against Islamic Fundamentalists and Sharia Law, not Muslims per say, and they aren't even a race, so everybody should not even use the word 'racism' in regards to Muslims.

At least the BNP is the only party that will ever do anything about immigration. But their Leftism must be fought. Britain must move away from all this Leftism, it leads to only problems.

Right now, by far, the BIGGEST DANGER on the Right is a certain violent ideology of religion which is rabidly Right wing in its intolerance and hatred, cloaked in the words of God; and aided most importantly by so-called champions of the Left. Those that claim to 'care' for human rights and tolerance doing their all to destroy human rights and tolerance.

It's a horror film come to life.

We must admit that the ideology of the Left is evil when it actively promotes and protects the most evil Right wing movement this planet has ever seen.

absurd thought -
God of the Universe says
you may not defend yourself

with the logic of your words
first resort is violence

All real freedom starts with freedom of speech. Without freedom of speech there can be no real freedom.
