Belgium Makes Sexist Jokes A Crime Punishable by Fine
Liberals–including Obama–often: openly admit: they want to “reshape” America into a completely different society, but never name any specific countries they’d use as a model. I find it most helpful to look at: Western and Northern: Europe for a glimpse at what they have in mind.: A core value? Censorship and speech policing. Belgium just passed a law banning “sexist” remarks.
Criticizing a woman’s skimpy clothing will now be a crime punishable by fine.
Sexist comments in the office, on the street or online will be punishable by courts in what is thought to be the first legislation of its type.
Equality minister Joelle Milquet said shaming a man for being a house husband will be banned, but added that the legal protections were designed mainly for women.
This is absolutely what the far left wants to import to America. They want “offensive” speech to be illegal. (Of course, they also want the power to decide what’s offensive and what isn’t. Hardcore Internet porn would no doubt be protected, but Rush Limbaugh’s jokes about Sandra Fluke would be criminal.) They just don’t have the guts to admit it, because they have that barrier to progress, the First Amendment, standing: in their way.
But that: doesn’t stop them from trying! What else do you think is the intention behind “hate crimes” laws and speech codes at universities?
