"Free Speech" in France

Hat tip Gallia Watch and Riposte Laique

Sebastien Jallamion

He insulted an imam (the leader of ISIS)

So a French cop opens up an anonymous Facebook page in which he condemns Islamic terrorists-specifically ISIS over the decapitation of a French citizen and he includes an unflattering portrait of the head of ISIS. As a result, he is prosecuted. Gallia Watch has an interview (in English) reprinted from Riposte Laique with the policeman, who is now out of a job.

This is precisely the type of international legislation the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, a 57-nation body within the UN is pushing. When she was secretary of state, Hillary Clinton met behind closed doors twice with this bunch to discuss their demands. If you think our First Amendment rights are absolute and unthreatened, ask yourself if our Second Amendment rights are absolute and unthreatened.

Yes, and yes.

The French have always done things this way. The only thing that changes is who is wielding what stick at who.

Here, we do things differently.
