A caricature of free speech in the West - Nasser Amin's case


free speech noun The right to express any opinion in public without censorship or restraint by the government.

Axiomatically, the problem with free speech is that we all want it for ourselves, but woe betide anyone who wants it for their selves – especially when they won’t agree with us!

Axiomatically, universities are no more bastions of free speech than the average UK public-house.

Axiomatically, racism has its fashions and, at the moment, the vogue is for traducing Muslims and besmirching Islam.

The liberty of the Press is the Palladium of all the civil, political and religious rights of an Englishman. Junius (fl. 1769–72). Pseudonym of English political writer. Dedicatory notice in The Letters of Junius (1772).
It amuses Frank TALKER to see that the BLINK Website – not known for its tolerance of free speech – should pretend to be much interested in the free speech of a Black but not that much in the free speech of Whites. Why the discrepancy?

The racist British National Party (BNP) is as entitled to free speech as much as anyone else, but The 1990 Trust doesn’t behave as though this is so. And thus they do not support the Voltairean proposition that one should fight to the death for the free-speech rights of others – no matter how much you might violently disagree with them. Even though they vainly struggle to pretend that they do.

Axiomatically, when you bite the hand that feeds you, do not be surprised if you go hungry. There’s no way that a state-funded educational institution is going to allow any member from among those who use its facilities to criticise those providing the funds. To believe otherwise is suicidal political naivety. The kind of disingenuousness that pervades this entire article.

When a man says that he is Jesus or Napoleon, or that the Martians are after him, or claims something else that seems outrageous to common sense, he is labelled psychotic and locked up in a madhouse. Freedom of speech is only for normal people. Thomas Szasz (born 1920), US psychiatrist. The Second Sin, “Schizophrenia” (1973).

The fact is that no-one will ever fight to the death to preserve the rights of others – especially when those rights are in direct opposition to not only one’s values but one’s ability to survive on this earth. If a Black supports a racist in spouting racism, then He clearly makes his own life that more difficult to the extent that he (masochistically) supports racial hate-speech. Blacks do Themselves no favours when They pretend to be morally superior to Whites in this rather feeble way; which is to say, quoting the rather idiotic and feeble-minded Voltaire.
Freedom of Speech:
I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it. Voltaire (1694–1778), French philosopher, author. Paraphrase of Voltaire’s sentiments in his Essay on Tolerance, as stated in: Evelyn Beatrice Hall, under the pseudonym S G Tallentyre, The Friends of Voltaire (1907). However, in February 1770, Voltaire wrote to M. le Riche: “Monsieur l’Abbé, I detest what you write, but I would give my life to make it possible for you to continue to write.”
