    UNITED KINGDOM, July 10, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – A doctor who has worked for 26 years with the UK’s National Health Service (NHS) has been “sacked” for refusing to use transgendered patients’ incorrect, “preferred” pronouns. The treatment of the 55-year-old father of four who believes that sex is biological and not a matter of personal preference raises questions about the chilling effect that pro-LGBT policies of government agencies have on freedom of speech, especially when it comes to Christians. Multiple reports from UK media indicate that Dr. David Mackereth was “deemed to be ‘unfit to work’ after he said he would...

    As PJ Media is reporting, “YouTuber Calum Long-Collins announced he would be effectively shutting down the channel EnglishShooting, a YouTube channel that racked up more than 15,000 subscribers and more than 12 million views in the past four years. Long-Collins said the police had marked his YouTube channel as a ‘forum of extremism,’ and that he had to ‘show the police that I am a fit character to own firearms within the U.K.'” Here’s the video that Long-Collins made confessing his sins in a last ditch attempt to placate the British authoritarians authorities and convince them to let him keep...

    Racist lawyer Aaron Schlossberg will have to find new office space — and an attorney of his own. The 44-year-old was kicked out of his Madison Avenue work space Thursday after he was was captured in a hate-filled rant at Spanish-speaking restaurant workers — and then a Congressman filed a formal complaint to the state court system’s disciplinary committee. Schlossberg had been using a business center in 275 Madison Ave. as an office address for his private law firm — but has been given the boot over the shocking video that went viral Wednesday.

    In response to Spotify’s newly launched Hate Content and Hateful Conduct public policy, women’s advocacy group UltraViolet is calling on the streaming service to widen its net beyond R. Kelly and XXXTentacion, which were the first acts to see their music removed from promotional playlists. UltraViolet, a national organization working on a range of issues including reproductive rights, healthcare, economic security, violence and racial justice, published an open letter Monday to Spotify head Daniel Ek, applauding a recent decision to pull Kelly and XXXTentacion’s music from playlists and algorithmic recommendations. However, the group is also imploring that the policy be...
  • New Online Terror Laws ‘Criminalise Thought,’ Says Terror Chief

    The government should not “criminalise thought”, the UK’s terror watchdog has said, after ministers revealed new laws criminalising viewing “extreme” online material following a wave of Islamist attacks. Earlier this month, Home Secretary Amber Rudd said people could be imprisoned for up to 15 years for “repeatedly viewing” things deemed “far-right propaganda” or “terrorist material” online, but without planning or committing acts of violence. In the wake of recent Islamist attacks, Ms. Rudd said the government could create new criminal offences, including banning orders and extremism disruption orders, backed by potential jail sentences.
  • British Police Arrest At Least 3,395 People For ‘Offensive’ Online Comments in One Year

    Breitbart ^ | 10/14/17 | Jack Montgomery
    British police forces arrested at least nine people a day for “offensive” online comments last year. Figures obtained by The Times through the Freedom of Information Act reveal that 3,395 people across 29 forces were arrested last under section 127 of the Communications Act 2003, which makes it illegal to intentionally “cause annoyance, inconvenience or needless anxiety to another”, in 2016. The true figure is likely to be significantly higher, as thirteen police forces refused to provide the requested information and two did not provide usable data. Around half of the investigations were abandoned before being brought to prosecution, which...

    Transylvania University’s president recently asked Congress to enact legislation that would force Facebook to “remove” any postings of “hate speech” from its website. In an essay for Inside Higher Ed, President Seamus Carey argues in favor of increased government regulation of “hate speech,” a request spurred on by the recent “harassment” of a DACA recipient at the university.

    An Australian children’s entertainment company fired a young woman for saying on social media “it’s OK to vote ‘no’” in the country’s current referendum on same-sex “marriage.” Capital Kids Parties owner Madlin Sims may have violated discrimination laws in firing an 18-year-old because Sims said her former employee’s view amounted to hate speech, The Guardian reported. The young woman known thus far as Madeline said in various media interviews that she was let go because her Christian view did not allow her to vote yes in Australia’s voluntary postal survey on gay “marriage.” The plebiscite runs from September 12 through...

    Did you know when you search the internet, you're not actually searching the whole internet? Google is the largest search service in the world. But even with trillions of websites indexed, Google’s search only covers about four percent of the net. So what exactly is the 96 percent of the internet that’s ungoogleable? The "mysterious" Deep Web, as tech expert Shelly Palmer facetiously called it in an interview with Circa, is the internet that isn’t indexable by search engines. "It's mostly private information that actually should be private and is set up to be that way," Palmer said. This is...

    If you're going to create nasty memes to get attention, demand people give you credit for those memes and celebrate when the president of the United States shares one with his roughly 33 million followers, I have no sympathy for you. You're not a martyr for the cause of free expression. There was a time when anonymity allowed Americans with unpopular or unconventional beliefs to make their arguments without fear of retribution. Today, the internet has created an environment that incentivizes people to create detestable messages meant to troll and harass. Then again, this story isn't really about online harassment...

    Political correctness is an abstract from the pit of hell, and it smells like smoke. It is dependent upon demagoguing people not to speak truth and the corruption of speech by redefining verbiage. When I speak of the corruption of speech by the redefining of verbiage, a prime example is the word “fascism.” As my son pointed out to me, Google defines “fascism” as: “An authoritarian and nationalistic right-wing system of government and social organization; (in general use) extreme right-wing, authoritarian, or intolerant views or practice.” The Google definition most accurately defines those inhabiting the California state education system. And...

    One of the many maddening takeaways from the London Bridge jihad attack is this: If you post videos on YouTube radicalizing Muslim viewers to kill innocent people, YouTube will leave you alone. But if you post a video on YouTube honoring innocent people murdered by barbaric jihadists, your video will get banned. I know. It happened to me in 2006. Eleven years later, the selective censors at Google-YouTube still can't competently distinguish terrorist hate speech from political free speech. Islamic hate preachers such as Ahmad Musa Jibril, whose bloodthirsty rants against non-Muslims reportedly inspired the London Bridge ringleader, have flourished....

  • Actress Susan Olsen fired from radio show after homophobic rant (Says Trump is Right)

    Here's the story of a not-so-lovely lady. Actress Susan Olsen — who played the youngest daughter Cindy on "The Brady Bunch" — was just fired from her hosting gig on an L.A. radio show over a homophobic rant she sent over Facebook. The Donald Trump supporter co-hosted the show "Two Chicks Talkin' Politics" before she was dismissed by the station, according to reports. Olsen used a homophobic slur over and over again towards openly gay actor Leon Acord-Whiting, who decided to publish the once-private message publicly.

For a very brief time he was hailed as a cuddly bear stuffed into a tight red sweater who was so cute that it made you want to hug him. And then by Friday...he became an instant non-person to liberals due to very un-PC Thought Crime remarks from his past on Reddit. Of course, I am referring to Ken Bone who appeared as one of the undecided voters asking a question during the...

    Can police prevent hate crimes by monitoring racist banter on social media? Researchers will be testing this concept over the next three years in Los Angeles, marking a new frontier in efforts by law enforcement to predict and prevent crimes. During a three-year experiment, British researchers working with the Santa Monica-based Rand Corp. will be monitoring millions of tweets related to the L.A. area in an effort to identify patterns and markers that prejudice-motivated violence is about to occur in real time. The researchers then will compare the data against records of reported violent acts. The U.S. Department of Justice...
