UN demands Germany repress free Speech. Political Correctness rules the world

When former Berlin politician Thilo Sarrazin made critical remarks about Muslim immigrants four years ago, many found them offensive, though prosecutors rejected complaints, citing free speech laws. A UN committee disagrees, however, and has accused Germany of violating an anti-racism convention.
Battling Racism: UN Body Reprimands Germany over Sarrazin Comments

An United Nations committee, empowered by an international treaty, DEMANDS Germany to take legal action against free speech of prominent dissident Thilo Sarrazin, a former Central Bank chief.

Political correctness is installing a world wide dictatorship, undoing human liberties, civil and human rights dozens of generations of men fought to attain. This is a return to the middle age inquisition.

A United Nations committee has reprimanded Germany in strong language, saying that the country had violated an international anti-racism convention.

At issue are controversial statements made in 2009 by Thilo Sarrazin, a former finance senator for the city-state of Berlin, about Turks and Arabs, who he said sponged off the state and were incapable of integrating, among other things. But a complaint submitted to public prosecutors in Berlin was rejected on grounds that the comments were permissible under Germany’s freedom of expression law. An appeal to the decision was rejected as well.

According to the UN’s Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (CERD), however, this constituted a violation of the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination, because it failed to conduct an "effective investigation" into the matter.

"This is a historic decision," said the TBB Turkish Union, the cultural organization that submitted the case to the committee, in a statement on Thursday. "CERD has determined that Mr. Sarrazin’s comments touch on a feeling of racist superiority or racial hatred and contain elements of incitement to racial discrimination."
