Now illegal to "villify" Islam in Australia

"You are a racist for calling me a violent Jihadist. I simply enjoy
target shooting . . . moving targets that is"

Thought Crime

  • The so-called "conservative" government of Australia joined with the left to make free speech illegal.  If you dare to criticize Islam then you will be declared a criminal.

(Brisbane Times)  -  Vilification on the grounds of religion is now illegal and in serious cases could result in a criminal conviction with a fine of up to $7500, under laws passed by the ACT parliament on Thursday.
Both Labor and Liberal supported the move put by the Greens Shane Rattenbury, who said the display of hatred, intolerance and offensive behaviour towards Muslims was one of the biggest intolerance issues in Australia today.
The University of South Australia had found about 10 per cent of Australians were highly Islamophobic, and while the ACT showed the lowest rates in the country, Islamophobia was still significant here.
"It is clear [Muslims] are frequently, almost constantly, exposed to discrimination, vilification and targeted offensive behaviour," he said.
Thursday's changes to the Discrimination Act also added disability to the list, so it is now illegal to vilify someone because of disability, religion, race, sexuality, gender identity, and HIV/AIDS status. Vilification can include social media posts, actions in a workplace and wearing clothes, signs or flags that would incite hatred, contempt, ridicule or revulsion.
Liberal leader Jeremy Hanson said the Liberals wanted a harmonious, multicultural society free from extremism.

Don't you dare criticize Islam
Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik slaughtered 14 coworkers at a San Bernardino County Department of Public Health Christmas party.  But if you criticize violent Islam then you are the one that will be labeled a "racist" and "monster".
