People are being arrested and charged with speech having nothing to
with promoting hate or terrorism.
It's gotten so bad Amnesty International -- an entity that usually
spends its time decrying the acts of dictators and brutal
authoritarians -- has felt compelled to speak up about Spain's
terrible speech laws.
The report also notes several other European countries are also
beginning to curtail the rights of their citizens in their quest to
target hate speech and international terrorism. Germany's hate
speech law roll out has been an unmitigated disaster and other
countries like France and Italy seem all too willing to join Spain
and Germany in killing satire, parody, and content they just don't
agree with. All of this is being done under the heading of "public
safety," but in reality, the public is no safer and will develop an
unhealthy fear of their own governments.
