It is established that Twitter has agreed to conform to Pakistani blasphemy laws.
It is stunning that at a free speech event, RT is banned but the CBC and BBC are not although the reasons for banning RT (presumably) apply more to the CBC and BBC.
The Rebel managed to attend but they clearly attempted to stop Ezra from asking the only question that mattered. This was a stage managed event and no dissent was to be permitted, and the Pakistani censors must not be challenged.
This is a truly outstanding moment by The Rebel’s Ezra Levant, equalled perhaps only by his appearance as a defendant at the disgraceful Canadian ‘Human Rights Commissions’.
Freedom of speech is dying all over the world and the UK appears to be the vanguard of the new totalitarian push against freedom of speech.
This story, published on Jihad Watch on June 13th this year, just came to our attention today:
ccording to Searchlight Germany, “After the barbecue, which was organised as a protest against the ‘interreligious Eid festival’, participants were attacked by two Syrians and attacked with a knife.”
It’s clear who is in charge in Germany now. How long will it be before Merkel’s government, seeing consumption of pork as evidence of “right-wing extremism,” bans it altogether?
“Pig triggers police action at barbecue by right-wing extremists,” translated from “Schwein löst Polizeieinsatz bei Grillfest von Rechtsextremen aus,” Lepiziger Volkszeitung, June 10, 2019 (thanks to Searchlight Germany):
The far-right group Pro Chemnitz organized a barbecue in protest. It was directed against Muslims who were celebrating the end of their month of fasting Ramadan. In the end, the police intervened.
The extreme right-wing group Pro Chemnitz launched a police operation with a pig. As a protest against an event for the Muslim Sugar Festival at the end of the month of fasting Ramadan, Pro Chemnitz had invited people on Saturday to a barbecue, where a piglet landed on the grill.
Whole piglet was not allowed
Here is the only video we have found so far of this event. The police come to make sure the pig is chopped up small enough that it cannot be recognized as pig. This, is what police need to be doing in a city where migrants are raping and murdering the locals.

Google Hosts Sharia Law App Enabling Muslims to Report Blasphemy and Heresy to the Police
On December 7, 2018, the Google Play Store approved the latest version of “Smart Pakem,” an app that allows Muslims in Jakarta, the capital of the largest Muslim country on earth, to report violations of Sharia law such as blasphemy and even heresy. The app allows users to report people who practice unrecognized religions or unorthodox interpretations of Indonesia’s six officially recognized faiths: Buddhism, Confucianism, Hinduism, Islam, Protestant Christianity, and Roman Catholic Christianity.
According to Google’s translation on the Google Play Store, “Smart Pakem” intends “to make it easier to find information and manage religion, belief flow and community organizations in the jurisdiction of DKI Jakarta,” the capital of Indonesia.
The app, which has more than 1,000 installs, claims to provide a list of “laws and regulations that regulate the activities of the flow of beliefs in the community.”
While most areas of Indonesia do not enforce the entirety of Sharia (Islamic law), the national criminal code prohibits blasphemy, which it defines as “the act or offense of speaking sacrilegiously about God or sacred things.” Article 156(a) makes it illegal to “express feelings of hostility, hatred, or contempt against religion,” with a penalty of up to five years in prison.
Thank you C. for this find and translation.
The true agenda of the OSCE is clear at the start of session 6
If these guys win, will it wake anyone up in the West on islam?
Sooner or later, we have to start taking back the language of reality. The PoMos have pretty much got everyone repeating the opposite of the truth like a mantra. Calling communist groups who seek to shut down everyone else’s freedom of expression, “Anti-fascists” is an absurdity tantamount to calling the Nazi party the faery unicorn rainbow party.
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Portland, Oregon, is bracing for what could be another round of violent clashes between a right-wing group and self-described anti-fascist counterprotesters who have pledged to keep Patriot Prayer and other affiliated groups out of this ultra-liberal city.
A rally organized Saturday by Patriot Prayer leader Joey Gibson was expected to be the third to roil Portland this summer. Two previous events ended in bloody fistfights and riots, and one counterprotester was sent to the hospital with a skull fracture.
This time, Gibson changed the venue from a federal plaza outside U.S. District Court to a waterfront park so some of his Oregon supporters can carry concealed weapons as they demonstrate. Chartered buses will bring participants from Vancouver, Washington — where Gibson lives — to downtown Portland with armed security on board.
The Portland Police Bureau said Friday that protesters should expect to see a significant police presence including bomb-sniffing dogs and checkpoints where weapon screenings will occur.
Gibson’s insistence on bringing his right-wing supporters repeatedly to this blue city has crystallized a debate about the limits of free speech in an era of stark political division. Patriot Prayer also has held rallies in many other cities around the U.S. West, including Berkeley, California, that have drawn violent reactions.
But the Portland events have taken on outsized significance after a Patriot Prayer sympathizer was charged with fatally stabbing two men who came to the defense of two young black women — one in a hijab — whom the attacker was accused of harassing on a light-rail train in May 2017.
Yeah well. I would like to see it for myself. Hopefully this weekend we will get some decent reports on what is going on there. But from the videos I have seen from Portland recently, as well as from these kinds of demos everywhere for years now, universally it is ANTIFA that initiate violence.
They justify it by pretending that words equals violence, and so words they do not agree with is violence against them, so using actual violence against both the speakers and listeners of ideas with which they do not agree, is self defence.
Interestingly, this is an exact analogue for the Islamic concept of, “Defending the faith”, where anyone not submitting to sharia or Islamic norms is offending the faith of Islam, which holds as a central tenet that all must submit to Islamic rule. Therefore, resistance to Islamic rule is an attack on Islamic faith and so this gives them the ‘right’ to “defend the faith”.
