Free Speech Under Assault Worldwide
The increasingly tyrannical nature of “hate speech” legislation and political correctness as well as the manner in which they are enforced has been highlighted by recent events in the United States and abroad in the West.
On October 30, police in Eugene, Oregon arrested and chargedDamien Leon Ramirez, a 23-year-old student at the University of Oregon (UO), with intimidation after he reportedly hurled “anti-Semitic” slurs at members of Alpha Epsilon Pi (AEPi), an international Jewish fraternity with a chapter on the Ducks’ campus.
Robin Holmes, vice president of student life at UO, condemned the so-called “hate crime” committed by Ramirez.
“The University of Oregon community is deeply disturbed by the crimes alleged to have been committed against AEP,” Miss Holmes was quoted as stating according to recent reports. “We do not tolerate hate crimes or threats founded in bias against any individuals or groups.”
Miss Holmes went on to praise Eugene police for arresting and charging Ramirez, and noted the UO president has intervened in the case, expressing “his concern and support for the fraternity.”
Miss Holmes’s statement concluded: “At UO, we are committed to diversity and creating a welcoming, supportive, and respectful community. We are grateful to the Eugene Police Department for their swift action related to the October 30 incident. In cases like this, student conduct procedures may also be initiated. . . . The university will continue to work with AEP to ensure that they have the resources and support needed to feel safe as a part of our campus community.”
In truth, though, what really happened was hardly worth a major incident.
Given the current atmosphere of modern American college campuses, Ramirez had likely been drinking and a confrontation between himself and members of the Jewish fraternity ensued.
As a direct result of political correctness and cultural Marxism, tyrannical ideologies institutionalized via mass media and mainstream academia in the West today, making mean or derogatory statements about non-whites, especially blacks and Jews, is now considered a crime in America.
“If every stupid, drunken college student who called another college student a nasty name were arrested, our jails would fill and our colleges and universities would empty,” Dr. Kevin Barrett of TruthJihad.com explained to AMERICAN FREE PRESS in a recent interview. “I’m not in favor of drinking, stupidity, or name-calling, but I am in favor of common sense, and what we’re seeing in Oregon is not common sense.”
“I abhor the ever-increasing penalties for expressing thoughts,” MacDonald told AFP. “In the U.S., as seen in the University of Oregon incident, universities, including public universities that should be held to First Amendment standards, routinely penalize students for certain types of speech. In other cases, people can lose their jobs for stating their beliefs. In Europe, it’s far worse, with individuals subject to legal sanctions, including fines and imprisonment.”
MacDonald was referring to the recent case of the colorful and politically incorrect French comedian Dieudonné M’bala M’bala, who has performed a variety “anti-Semitic” comedic skits and performances to large French audiences. In many of his more controversial performances, Dieudonné mocks the Jewish fixation on the alleged “Holocaust” narrative of WWII, which objective scientists, scholars, historians, and other professionals have systematically debunked and exposed as one of modern history’s greatest deceptions.
In 2009, Dieudonné was convicted by a French court for “hate crimes,” resulting in a €10,000 ($10,750) fine. The French comedian challenged the ruling at the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR), located in Strasbourg, France, which “rules on individual or state applications alleging violations of the civil and political rights set out in the European Convention on Human Rights,” according to its official website.
On November 10, the ECtHR ruled against him, arguing “that laws on freedom of expression did not offer protection for anti-Semitic comments or statements denying the Holocaust,” The New York Times recently reported.
The organized Jewish community, led by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) in the U.S., unsurprisingly praised the ECtHR decision. “Dieudonné is a recidivist anti-Semite who appeals to anti-Jewish prejudices for laughs. He mocks Holocaust survivors, invented an anti-Semitic salute, and has called for authorities to free the leader of the gang that murdered Ilan Halimi,” stated Jonathan A. Greenblatt, the CEO of the ADL, shortly after the Court’s decision. “While hate speech is constitutionally protected in the U.S., and properly so, we understand and respect the different legal regimes in European democracies. Dieudonné’s conduct clearly violated French law, and he should pay the consequences.”
Dr. Barrett found the prosecution of Dieudonné particularly disturbing.
“Common sense suggests that Jews, the richest and most powerful per-capita ethnic group in America, have profited mightily by playing the victimology card,” Dr. Barrett noted. “Billions in ‘Holocaust’ reparations from Germany, trillions looted from America and sent to support genocide in Occupied Palestine, and if anyone tells the truth about this, as Dieudonné has, they’re liable to be arrested for ‘hate speech.’”
Dr. MacDonald is skeptical of the ADL’s commitment to free speech in America.
“Despite the ADL’s statement that they believe the First Amendment is a fixture of American law, they have done all they can to enact laws on ‘hate speech,’ ” MacDonald pointed out. “In fact, they would love to have the First Amendment gutted by rulings of the Supreme Court.”
The ADL was one of the most ardent supporters of the “Hate Crimes Prevention Bill,” which was passed by the U.S. Congress in 2009. The bill is also known as the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd, Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act, and received overwhelming support from the organized Jewish community as well as other minority lobbying organizations. The bill is an absolute affront to the First Amendment and free speech in America.
Why Can We Question Anything But The “Holocaust”?
- Man targeted for holding politically incorrect beliefs.
In an environment where intellectual curiosity should be rewarded, a student trustee with California’s Los Rios Community College District faced a potential recall following a candid and provocative interview he gave to a college newspaper that delved into the most controversial subject in the world today, the “Holocaust.”
Los Rios comprises four separate community colleges in Sacramento and the surrounding region. Cosumnes River College, Folsom Lake College, Sacramento City College and American River College together make up the District, serving roughly 80,000 students.
Cameron Weaver, 26, was elected to the position of Los Rios student trustee in an April election and has served in the position since June of this year. Prior to that, he had been in student government and even contributed to the school newspaper, the American River Current.
In an interview with Barbara Harvey, a “journalist” and web editor with the Current, Weaver cited a popular YouTube video highlighting various newspaper articles prior to World War II that specifically described “6 million Jews” who were allegedly being persecuted in Russia and other parts of eastern Europe. Many of these articles noted that the Jews of Russia, Ukraine, Poland and other parts of Europe were facing severe oppression, discrimination and abuse, with many ultimately suffering and dying under horrific conditions. (Watch the video linked to Harvey’s name where she was interviewed to gain an understanding of how efficient the Jewish-controlled elite media’s brainwashing has been.—Ed.]
Numerous revisionists, including Don Heddesheimer, author ofThe First Holocaust: Jewish Fund Raising Campaigns with Holocaust Claims During & After World War One, have argued that the “6 million Jews” murdered at the hands of white Christian European peoples, a fabricated and false historical narrative officially institutionalized following the defeat of National Socialist Germany, has a long history going back well before WWII even began.
“In these newspapers, there was a very conflicting thing I noticed: There was continual reporting that 6 million Jewish people were facing a lot of [suffering]—they were facing starvation, being evicted from their homes, over in Russia, and then three years later it changed to Ukrainia,” Weaverexplained during the interview.
Weaver clearly distanced himself from people who say “the Holocaust didn’t happen,” arguing that he does not know all the facts of the matter, and just found the “6 million Jews” figure, which has been endlessly promoted and repeated by the mass media—even prior to WWII—quite revealing and worthy of open and honest discussion.
During the highly edited audio interview released online, Weaver described himself as “very skeptical” of official government and mass media pronouncements, and presented himself as an independent and critical thinker.
In the conversation, which covered a broad range of topics, Weaver, a political science major who is considering pursuing a career in politics and public service, noted that the 9-11 attack was a major motivating factor in his decision to study politics. Casting doubt on the official conspiracy theory explaining the events of 9-11 as outlined in the official 9-11 Commission Report, Weaver stated: “As the months and the years progress, you get a little bit older, you get a little bit more able to think for yourself, and I just look back and go over what has transpired since 9-11, the facts or the data that’s publicly available since 9-11, and I’m disgusted. I’m disgusted that there’s been so many things given to the public that omit the key things that really detail what the 9-11 Commission didn’t go over when they did their report.”
Weaver stated he believed Saudi Arabia played a key role in planning and executing the events of 9-11, which has been covered up and hidden from the American public. He also criticized the promotion of childhood vaccinations and stated “that antidepressants play a role in high-profile shootings—something he alleges the Food and Drug Administration may be covering up,” according to the Current article.
Los Rios officials have blasted Weaver for his comments, with District President of the Board of Trustees Dustin Johnson describing his statements as “troubling, misguided and abhorrent to the views and values of the seven publicly elected members of the board of trustees.” Los Rios Chancellor Brian King stated: “The Board of Trustees and the Los Rios administration jointly denounce the deplorable comments attributed to the student trustee.”
In an email to the Los Rios Board of Trustees and Chancellor King, Weaver stated that the report in the Current “does not accurately reflect my views, beliefs or convictions.”
“My top priority from this point forward is to work to rebuild those relationships, and rebuild your trust in me as someone who is worthy of the student trustee position, and who can intelligently and passionately represent our students on the Los Rios Board,” Weaver wrote to school officials.
Mitchel Benson, associate vice chancellor for communications and media relations for Los Rios, explained in a statement to The Sacramento Bee that “Cameron’s future is in the same hands of people that elected him and not in the hands of the trustees.”
Although the student senate voted seven to two against recalling Weaver, a clear and resounding message has been sent to him and across this country to anyone else, anywhere: do not question the “Holocaust.”
