Please take a moment and thank God that we have a country, at least currently, that still values our natural rights and our expression of free speech.
We live in a world where justice has been flipped upside down, a period in time where the victim of a crime, particularly if he’s a minority or one of the left’s favorite demographics to pander to, can get away with a crime while those who might oppose those type of individuals are the ones getting tossed in prison.
This is what is happening today in ‘tolerant’ utopias:
A 53-year-old Swedish man who insulted a Muslim after he posted a video threatening to “take over your f***ing country,” was arrested and charged with a hate crime. Yes, that’s right, folks.
This man was imprisoned for exercising his right to freedom of speech. Some might think free speech is an American concept, but it’s not. It’s a God-given right that extends to all humanity, regardless of whether a specific government recognizes it or not.
This, folks, is the kind of thing that’s headed our way if we allow the Democrats to take charge of our government come 2020.
From Summit News:
A 53-year-old Swede who insulted a Muslim man for posting a video threat to “take over your fucking country” was hit with hate crime charges.
This is Sweden. Of course he was.
“We Arabs are here to take over your fucking country so go down on your fucking knees and suck my cock your Swedish little whore,” said the Arab man in an angry rant posted to Facebook.
The 53-year-old Swedish man responded on a Facebook group called ‘Political Facts’ with some strong words of his own.
“Disgusting arab crabs disappear from here,” he wrote.
The man was reported to police and called in for an interrogation at Kristianstad where he was asked about his views on immigration.
He was subsequently sentenced by Kristianstad’s district court for hate speech against a protected group and forced to pay SEK 22,200 (roughly $2,300 US dollars).
The court argued that the man’s comments were aimed at Arabs and not just at the individual.
The man appealed the decision to the High Court, but it was upheld, although his fine was reduced to SEK 16,200 in addition to another SEK 800 he was asked to pay to the Crime Victims Fund.
As we have previously highlighted, despite worsening problems with sexual assaults, grenade attacks and violent crime in migrant areas, Swedes who complain about the situation have found themselves dragged before the courts.
Last year, a 70-year-old woman was interrogated by police and later convicted for an anti-Muslim Facebook post in which she expressed fear that Islam was taking over the country.
Earlier that year, a 65-year-old woman who was previously the victim of a brutal beating by migrants was sentenced to prison for posting that “the IQ level in Sweden will fall as a result of immigration.”
In another case, a 32-year-old woman from Gothenburg was interrogated by police, had her DNA taken and was subsequently imprisoned for the “crime” of sharing a joke meme about Islam on Facebook.
In 2017, a 70-year-old Swedish woman was prosecuted for hate speech for saying she saw migrants setting fire to cars, something that happens all the time in Sweden.
The first two amendments to the Constitution are the most important rights we have, thus they must be defended with as much passion and vigor we can muster. If these two rights fall, they all fall.
Being able to speak your mind, regardless of how horrific your thoughts might be, is what makes it possible for debate to happen in this country. Through spirited debate, ideas are allowed onto the battlefield of ideas to see which ones are true, right, and good. Those that rise to the surface will be the ideas that shape the future progress of the entire world.
None of this can happen without complete freedom to speak your mind. Yes, that means folks have the right to spout off all kinds of things, whether we like them or agree with them or not.
True tolerance is learning to engage with people who have different points of view that need discussed. If the left is truly tolerant, they need to practice this truth.
