French Government Hates Freedom Of Speech

The photos of 40 of the world’s government leaders marching arm-in-arm along a Paris boulevard on Sunday with the president of the United States not among them was a provocative image that has fomented much debate. The march was, of course, in direct response to the murderous attacks on workers at the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo by a pair of brothers named Kouachi, and on shoppers at a Paris kosher supermarket by one of the brothers’ comrades.

The debate has been about whether President Obama should have been at the march. The march was billed as a defense of freedom of speech in the West; yet it hardly could have been held in a less free speech-friendly Western environment, and the debate over Obama’s absence misses the point.

In the post-World War II era, French governments have adopted a policy advanced upon them nearly 100 years ago by Woodrow Wilson. He pioneered the modern idea that countries’ constitutions don’t limit governments; they unleash them. Thus, even though the French Constitution guarantees freedom of speech, French governments treat speech as a gift from the government, not as a natural right of all persons, as our Constitution does.

The French government has prohibited speech it considers to be hateful and even made it criminal. When the predecessor magazine to Charlie Hebdo once mocked the death of Charles de Gaulle, the French government shut it down — permanently.

The theory of anti-hate speech laws is that hate speech often leads to violence, and violence demands police and thus the expenditure of public resources, and so the government can make it illegal to spout hatred in order to conserve its resources. This attitude presumes, as Wilson did when he prosecuted folks for publicly singing German songs during World War I, that the government is the origin of free speech and can lawfully limit the speech it hates and fears. It also presumes that all ideas are equal, and none is worthy of hatred.

When the massacres occurred last week in Paris, all three of the murderers knew that the police would be unarmed and so would be their victims. It was as if they were shooting fish in a barrel. Why is that? The answer lies in the same mentality that believes it can eradicate hate by regulating speech. That mentality demands that government have a monopoly on violence, even violence against evil.

So, to those who embrace this dreadful theory, the great loss in Paris last week was not human life, which is a gift from God; it was free speech, which is a gift from the state. Hence the French government, which seems not to care about innocent life, instead of addressing these massacres as crimes against innocent people, proclaimed the massacres crimes against the freedom of speech. Would the French government have reacted similarly if the murderers had killed workers at an ammunition factory, instead of at a satirical magazine?

And how hypocritical was it of the French government to claim it defends free speech! In France, you can go to jail if you publicly express hatred for a group whose members may be defined generally by characteristics of birth, such as gender, age, race, place of origin or religion.

You can also go to jail for using speech to defy the government. This past weekend, millions of folks in France wore buttons and headbands that proclaimed in French: “I am Charlie Hebdo.” Those whose buttons proclaimed “I am not Charlie Hebdo” were asked by the police to remove them. Those who wore buttons that proclaimed, either satirically or hatefully, “I am Kouachi” were arrested. Arrested for speech at a march in support of free speech? Yes.

What’s going on here? What’s going on in France, and what might be the future in America, is the government defending the speech with which it agrees and punishing the speech with which it disagrees. What’s going on is the assault by some in radical Islam not on speech, but on vulnerable innocents in their everyday lives in order to intimidate their governments. What’s going on is the deployment of 90,000 French troops to catch and kill three murderers because the government does not trust the local police to use guns to keep the streets safe or private persons to use guns to defend their own lives.

Why do some in radical Islam kill innocents in the West in order to affect the policies of Western governments? Might it be because the fruitless Western invasion of Iraq killed 650,000 persons, most of whom were innocent civilians? Might it be because that invasion brought al-Qaida to the region and spawned ISIS? Might it be because Obama has killed more innocent civilians in the Middle East with his drones than were killed by the planes in the U.S. on 9/11? Might it be because our spies are listening to us, rather than to those who pose real dangers?

What does all this have to do with freedom of speech? Nothing — unless you believe the French government.

Obama’s Blueprint for the Destruction of America: The Decimation of Military Leadership

Since even before Obama assumed the Presidency, his mere presence in the 2008 election was an affront to every member of Congress that has Presidential aspirations. The foreign born and disbarred Barack Obama, who never held a real job in his life, and did not even serve one full term as a senator, was a slap in the face of our political system and all of those with much more experience were passed over for a “community activist”.

As I have pointed out in Part Three of this series, Obama was not even vetted as a Presidential candidate by the FBI as required by law. Not since J. Edgar Hoover was complicit in the assassination of JFK, have we seen the FBI so manipulated and compromised in terms of validating Obama’s candidacy.

The day that Barack Hussein Obama took the oath of office, in January of 2009, was the day that the sun set on America. I never thought the country would ever see a President as corrupt, immoral and incompetent as Woodrow Wilson. After all, in 1913, Wilson worked towards eliminating tariffs, the American government’s mainstay of economic support since the country’s inception.Wilson, on behalf the globalists, replaced tariffs with the corrupt and unconstitutional income tax and of course the Federal Reserve which has eroded the dollar to a net value of 3 cents of worth today. Wilson lied us into World War I, he jailed legitimate protesters and he helped make it possible to usher in the direct election of senators which handed over the Senate to the globalists. Wilson even tried to sacrifice the nation’s sovereignty by handing over our nation’s political authority to the League of Nations which was the globalist’s first attempt at world governance and he would have succeeded had it not been for the Ron Paul of his day, Henry Cabot Lodge. I never thought that there could be anybody worse for the country than Woodrow Wilson, until now. Obama is the most treasonous and destructive force to ever occupy the White House.

Just how destructive is Obama? Is he just incompetent? I have said it before and I will say it again, Obama, like Wilson, he is following a systematic plan. Wilson’s agenda was relatively tame compared to Obama’s. It was Wilson’s mission to hand off the control America to the banksters and economically enslave the nation in debt. Obama’s mission is much more nefarious as his objective is clearly based upon the goal of the total destruction of the United States as we have known it. The following paragraphs will provide a mere snapshot of….

The Nightmare Scenario has Broke Loose!

From A Nation Beguiled –

“The high office of the President has been used to foment a plot to destroy America’s freedom and before I leave office, I must inform the citizen of this plight.” JFK

Right before his death John F. Kennedy tried to warn the people of America about the highly secretive group known as the Illuminati but sadly he never got the chance because his assassination followed shortly there after…

In truth this group has had their tentacles in almost every aspect of our lives in some way shape or form and they sit in the highest levels of governments secretly implementing their plans of mass human slaughter while the world watches the mainstream media report lies and lives their lives under the normalcy bias.

Their campaign to eliminate “useless eaters” (that’s you and I) on behalf of the planet’s “privileged ruling elite” is now taking a more ravenous toll as global population levels rise.

It is no secret, then, that the elite want millions dead, and no longer do they hid it, no, it’s out in the open and they are proud of their stance and any numb-nut who denies it, well, they can just rest in their stupidity.

The Truth is We Have Already Been Warned….

“It was not my intention to doubt that, the Doctrines of the Illuminati, and principles of Jacobinism had not spread in the United States. On the contrary, no one is more truly satisfied of this fact than I am. The idea that I meant to convey, was, that I did not believe that the Lodges of Free Masons in this Country had, as Societies, endeavored to propagate the diabolical tenets of the first, or pernicious principles of the latter (if they are susceptible of separation). That Individuals of them may… actually had a separation [sic] of the People from their Government in view, is too evident to be questioned.” – George Washington, from a letter that he wrote on October 24, 1798, which can be found in the Library of Congress.

“I sincerely believe, with you, that banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies.”

“A power has risen up in the government greater than the people themselves, consisting of many and various powerful interests, combined in one mass, and held together by the cohesive power of the vast surplus in banks.” – John C. Calhoun, Vice President and U.S. Senator, from a speech given on May 27, 1836

“Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people. To destroy this invisible government, to befoul the unholy alliance between corrupt business and corrupt politics is the first task of the statesmanship of the day.”— Theodore Roosevelt, in his Autobiography, 1913 (Appendix B)

“A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is privately concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men… [W]e have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated, governments in the civilized world—no longer a government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and the duress of small groups of dominant men.” – Woodrow Wilson, The New Freedom, 1913

– The 20 Goals of the Illuminati –
1.To establish a One World Government/New World Order with a unified church and monetary system under their direction. Many organizations have formed leading us to become globally minded and more likely to accept a form of dictatorship. Here are a few examples of such globally minded organizations:

The World Trade Organization, according to Encyclopedia Britannica is an international organization established to supervise and liberalize world trade. In other words it monitors and enforces rules governing global trade.

The United Nations, according to Wikipedia, is an international organization whose stated aims are to facilitate cooperation in international law, international security, economic development, social progress, human rights and achieving world peace. The UN currently has 192 member states.

The World Bank, according to the World Bank website, “It is a vital source that offers financial and technical assistance to developing countries around the world. They are not a bank in the common sense. They are made up of two unique development institutions owned by 185 member countries—the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD) and the International Development Association (IDA). Each institution plays a different but collaborative role to advance the vision of an inclusive and sustainable globalization.”

The World Church Council – The WCC brings together 349 churches, denominations and church fellowships in more than 110 countries and territories throughout the world, representing over 560 million Christians and including most of the world’s Orthodox churches, scores of Anglican, Baptist, Lutheran, Methodist and Reformed churches, as well as many United and Independent churches. It is a community of churches on the way to visible unity in one faith and one eucharistic fellowship, expressed in worship and in common life in Christ. It seeks to advance towards this unity…(Think One World Religion)

2.To bring about the utter obliteration of all national identity and national pride, which was a primary consideration if the concept of a One World Government was to work. This is why the IRS is targeting the “Tea Party” patriots.
3.To engineer and bring about the destruction of religion, and more specifically the Christian Religion. Their sole purpose is to bring about a world religion, be it the Vatican, Islam, or New Age. That part is unknown.
4.To establish the ability to control every person through means of mind control and what Zbignew Brzezinski called techonotronics, which would create human-like robots and a system of terror.
5.To bring about the end to all industrialization and the production of nuclear generated electric power in what they call “the post-industrial zero-growth society”….
