Freedom to speak your not something that exists in most of the world, a criminal matter in many countries who claim to be "free". Say the wrong thing about a Muslim in UK and you'll be arrested and charged, too. And the Dems are working furiously to get the same here. Now they just shut you down online, or fire you from your job, but they want to be able to charge you with a crime.

I have a Philadelphia newspaper printed in January 1792 where the entire front page is about the French Revolution. It appears it might be time for another one in France as well as in the U.S.

Of course, if they passed that law in the US, only lie-beral Demon-Rats would be "protected" from "public insult". The law would also require you to "publicly insult" conservatives and Republicans. If you praised a conservative Republican this morning, you would be on trial by this afternoon and on your way to the "re-education camps" by tonight!!!

Finnish politics could dramatically shift to the far-Right on Sunday as an anti-immigration party aims to replace Sanna Marin's Social Democrats Party. The 'rock star' prime minister, who took office in 2019 as the world's youngest PM at 34, is Finland's most popular leader this century, polls show. However, latest figures put the mother-of-one's centre-Left SDP in third place behind the anti-immigration and nationalist Finns Party and the centre-Right National Coalition Party, which held on to a thin lead. (Snip) A win for the far-Right Finns Party, and a far-Right prime minister, would be a first in Finland - but the party has previously served in government in a coalition.
