Scottish Hate Crime Bill Would Criminalize Offensive Dinner Table Conversations


 

“Stirring up hate” is the operative phrase. Looks like Scotland’s holiday meals and family get togethers will be subdued events. After all, one could go to jail according to the new hate crime bill.

That includes off-color dinner table conversations with friends and family. Asked whether people would be allowed to speak freely within their own homes, Yousaf said he disagreed “in terms of principle and policy” with the idea of keeping the law out of the living room.

“Let’s just give an example, which is intentionally stirring up hatred against Muslims,” he said. “Are we saying that that is justified because it is in the home?”

Here is a look into the gazing ball of what our future here in America soon will look like:

Scotland’s new odious hate crime bill would go so far as to criminalize dinner table conversations if their ‘offensive’ content is reported to police.

“Conversations over the dinner table that incite hatred must be prosecuted under Scotland’s hate crime law,” reports the Times.

Such conversations were previously protected under the Public Order Act 1986, which includes a “dwelling defense” that shields conversations that take place in private homes from being prosecuted, however that would be removed under the new law.

The new bill would add an additional crime of “stirring up hate” against a protected group by “behaving in a threatening or abusive manner, or communicating threatening or abusive material to another person,” as well as the crime of possessing “inflammatory material.”

Critics have argued that the vague term “stirring up hate” could be broadly interpreted and could lead to people like JK Rowling facing criminal charges and up to seven years in prison for expressing views about transgender issues.

Justice Secretary Humza Yousaf said journalists, writers and theater directors could also be dragged into the courts if their work is deemed to have stirred up “prejudice.”

To get an idea of Yousaf’s mentality, he previously gave a speech to the Scottish Parliament in which he complained that the vast majority of senior positions in Scottish authorities were filled by white people.

Demographically, Scotland is 96% white.

    The only thing I got out of this video is that this guy is a racist. Everybody’s white, and he doesn’t feel special. Maybe he should move.

    The Scots are the reason I quit drinking Scotch Whiskey. That crap numbs your brain —that and golf. I won’t give up golf, but I’m now totally focused on Irish Whiskey.

    In December, 1999, I was in Oriente, Cuba. There were/are spies in EVERY neighborhood; he/she could be your neighbor, your best bud, your sibling, your parent, your child, your spouse Under the threat of imprisonment El jeve, was not spoken of in negative terms. But unlike Scotland’s 96% white majority electing and keeping in office a non-white Muslim, Fidel took and maintained office at the point of a gun.

    Here at home we’re on the crest of giving up what remains of our freedoms to elected home grown and imported anti-Americans.

    ‘Hear now this, O foolish people, and without understanding; which have eyes, and see not; which have ears, and hear not’.
    Jeremiah 5:21

    “There are none so blind as those who will not see. The most deluded people are those who choose to ignore what they already know.”
    John Heywood (c. 1497 – c. 1580)

    “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it!
    (George Santayana-1905).

    In a 1948 speech to the House of Commons, Winston Churchill changed the quote slightly when he said (paraphrased), “those who fail to learn from history are condemned to repeat it.”

    “There is nothing new under the sun”
    Ecclesiastes 1:9.

    Maybe this says it best:
    Ignorance is bliss
    If you do not know about something, you do not worry about it.

    After November 3rd, 2020 we will see if the seemingly all pervading ignorance of a majority of lazy, indolent, looking for something for nothing, garden variety stupid, blind deaf and dumb have succeeding in dragging the rest of us down with them. But should good prevail over evil this time around and the inevitable is delayed four years it is a good bet the demolition of the once greatest nation on the face of this tiny blue marble floating among untold trillions of stars in trillions of galaxies becomes a fait accompli, a protest will be fruitless. …who or what out there in this vastness will even notice? Surely not the God we kicked to the curb some time ago.

    Maybe most is most sad is that the democrat con men and the left no longer needing to dissemble their real motives from the American people are succeeding with their agenda for the most part right out in the open.

    So the Scots want to criminalize it. Liberals like Brandy Zadrozny will dox you (which, in some neighborhoods, is a death sentence). DonaldTrump.watch did the same exclusively against Trump donors until two days ago (now it directs you to donor.watch — which shows all donors).
