(TeaParty.org) – Jayday Frasen (pictured above), the deputy leader of “Britain First,” has been sentenced to 140 hours for a speech she gave in Belfast.
Let that sink in.
The UK is supposed to be the birthplace of freedom of speech and personal liberty, but as of late they seem particularly determined to remind all their subjects that they’re just that, subjects.
And while I’d remind you that this is why we kicked their butt out of our country two centuries ago for good reason, if you think there aren’t many powerful leftists who want the exact same kind of tyranny here on our shores, you’ve got another thing coming.
The BBC reports:
“Jayda Fransen, 33, was found guilty of stirring up hatred during a speech about Islam in August 2017.
“She was also convicted for separate comments at a peace wall in the city.
“Convicting Fransen, of Moat Avenue in Donaghadee, County Down, a judge said her words were “a general, vehement attack against a religious group.”
“”The speech was made during the “Northern Ireland Against Terrorism” event two years ago. Britain First leader Paul Golding, 37, and two other English men, John Banks and Paul Rimmer, were previously acquitted on similar charges.
“They were accused of using threatening, abusive or insulting words intended to stir up hatred or arouse fear.
“During the trial, defense lawyers argued that each of the accused was entitled to freedom of expression, no matter how offensive their speeches may be.
“The court heard that Fransen told those gathered at the rally that there was no moderate version of Islam and that “these people are baying for our blood”.
This woman was literally put on trial for speaking the truth.
Yes, if she had been lying through her teeth she should have never been on trial, but as Jihad Watch contributor Hugh Fitzgerald, points out, she is correct that there is no moderate Islam:
As the celebrated apostate ibn Warraq has said, “there are moderate Muslims, but Islam itself is not moderate.”
Fransen knows that there is no “moderate” version of the Qur’an and hadith. There is only one Qur’an for all Muslims. The hadith, too, remain the same for all members of the umma. .There are those “moderate Muslims”” who choose to ignore the 109 Qur’anic verses commanding Muslims to “fight” and to “kill” and to “smite at the necks of” and to “strike terror in the hearts of” Unbelievers, but those verses remain in the Qur’an, immutable, with only the milder, earlier, “Meccan” verses being abrogated by the harsher, later, “Medinan” verses. In claiming that there is “no moderate” version of Islam Fransen is simply recognizing this bleak reality.
“She says that “these people are baying for our blood.” Whom does she mean? Not every last Muslim. Clearly, “these people’” means those Muslims who want to dutifully follow the commands to wage jihad against the Unbelievers. The Muslim Believer who reads, and attempts to follow, or help others to carry out, such Qur’anic verses as 2:191-193, 3:151, 4:89, 5;51, 8:12, 8:60, 9;5,9:29,47:4, and 98:6, that tells him to fight against and to kill the Unbelievers, “the most vile of created beings,’” is surely “baying for the blood” of non-Muslims.
Fransen added: “Islam says every single one of you wonderful people here today deserves to be killed.”
In what version of a free country can someone go on trial for “stirring up hatred”?!
For critiquing a religion?
Critiquing organized religion is the foundation on which Western enlightenment was based.
