Sophia Kuby, spokesman for European Dignity Watch, said the Framework betrays the essentially totalitarian mindset of significant elements within the European Union’s apparatus. The document, if adopted by the European Parliament, she said, “could lead to situations in which vague or unwarranted accusations are leveled against individuals and groups.”
Former heads of state call on EU to set up state surveillance of ‘intolerant’ citizens
Thanks to avoiceformen for calling attention to
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. 4
Political correctness dominates the United Nations and the European Union. Hate speech laws went down the slippery slope from outlawing incitement of violence and lynching to hampering discussion and even academic research about race and iq, domestic violence, wage gap, immigration law.
A prime example: it must be understood that demonstrations (in exercise of freedom of assembly) need not be tolerated when they are likely to degenerate into riots or infringe on the rights of others 4
Unfortunately, this includes peaceful demonstrators that will create violent backlash counter-demonstrations. We are sure this will not be interpreted that Trayvon Martin or other Black rioters will be prevented from demonstrating. Not will violent feminists be constrained, but non-violent anti-feminists. After all, anti-feminists are criminalized by this law.
Example s: tolerance does not denote acceptance of such practices as female circumcision,
male circumcision is not only ok but required due to to mandatory tolerance for millennia-old religious mutilation in Jewish and Muslim holy rites
forced marriage, polygamy
polyandry is ok? And what is so terrible about polygamy that it needs to be outlawed at all costs and can not be left to local governments? Of course, the Muslims will oppose this
or any form of exploitation or domination of women
note that men can be exploited and dominated. For example by women and their family courts that reduce men to slave labor to provide life long comfortable income to women
