I’m not a betting man, but I always thought that we’d lose the 2nd amendment well before we’d lose that dearly held one mentioning speech, press, and apparently religion. Either way, if we lost either, we’d all still lose. But at least I’d make some money on some side wagers to pay off the cops to not arrest me for emphatically saying “our administration is full of uncaring douche bags”. But then again, maybe they’d agree and let me off anyway.
Well, the UN has decided to make things interesting. The simple ‘hate crime’ was so 90′s. On Nov 1st, they decided to kick it up a notch (their absurdity goes to 11) and pass what I believe is the first ‘thought crime’. The legislation? To make January 27th the “International Day of Commemoration in memory of the Holocaust.” Ok, that’s cool. Let them have their day in the sun. Fine. But there is a more sinister clause. The resolution:
“Rejects any denial of the holocaust as a historical event, either in part or full”
Woah woah woah – back up there fellas. They specifically decreed that they reject someone denying the holocaust happened? Most likely, this will blossom into a punishable offense. How absurd! What’s next? Is it going to be a crime to deny that God exists? What about making it a crime to believe OJ was guilty? How about believing that diet Dr. Pepper really doesn’t taste like regular Dr. Pepper? If given enough alcohol, I can also be persuaded to believe a lot of things! That is, of course, till the hangover kicks in.
But denying something exists? So what! Well the problem is that some of these “revisionists” are Oceania is at war with Eurasia. It’s always been at war with Eurasia. And don’t you little bastards think otherwise, or we’ll jail you!back to Germany to either re-educate themselves or go to jail. Remember,
This is not a question of whether these people are right or wrong, but if one can’t speak about it, then one can’t argue his case. If one can’t argue their case, then apparently truth is decided by legislators. Ugh…
