Happy Hour News Briefs
Our old pal One-L is really making up for lost time. She must miss being on these pages.
Anyway, you’ll be glad to know that One-L is a fan of the Separation of Church and State. Seems out of character, but there you have it. For your consideration Scissorheads, may I present the evidence:
Last month, Minneapolis announced that a hotline to allow residents to report hate crimes, which include “any crime against a person or property motivated by prejudice against someone’s race, religion, disability, sexual orientation, ethnicity, gender or gender identity. This includes prejudice-motivated property damage (including graffiti), stalking and assault.”
So naturally, One-L says that the hotline is really a PC-run amok attempt to stifle Xristians from criticizing Islam, and as a bonus to establish (the) Sharia:
“What we’re seeing is that hotlines are being set up by units of government for the purpose of encouraging people to call in and rat on their fellow man to report a hate crime. What they’re trying to do is implement anti-blasphemy laws. They’re trying to implement Islamic Sharia law locally in order to quiet churches and quiet anybody who would talk about what the truth is about Islam.”
“What they want is civilization jihad. They want jihad through the court system to silence speech because when you take away someone’s speech rights to speak out—like we’re doing right now, to tell the truth about something—then it’s game over … There should be a lawsuit filed against the city of Minneapolis for doing this. They have violated the so-called separation of church and state that the left is so in love with because they’re preferring Islam over any other religion and, number two, they’re fascists. That’s what they are, they’re fascists; they want to shut down your right to free speech.”
Right. Setting up an anonymous hotline squashes free speech.
