SNP: Incredible Hate Crime Law – Free to Disagree Campaign in Scotland…

Comment: 

Here’s a commentator from Youtube on the above interview…

Joke of the day: There was an Englishman, an Irishman and a Scotsman who….. What? I’m under arrest?

Laugh while  you may but the points made in the above interview should be sufficient to ensure that the SNP are never again voted into high office. A more authoritarian government does not exist outside of the known totalitarian regimes such as North Korea – a point made in the interview. 

Catholics who have voted  for such an obviously Marxist Party in the past, such as the Spokesman for the Scottish Bishops (Peter Kearney), surely need to think again. Or do you disagree?  Maybe you think love of country (i.e. a “nationalist” type of love) is more important that love of God and Morality?

  1. Am with you Ed on if a Catholic Votes for this S.N.P. It is a Mortal Sin . After all they are a 100 % Marxist Party and surely one cannot be a Catholic and a Marxist at the same time . I actually had a discussion which turned a bit heated with a former Nurse who said that she was horrified by the way Animals are treated throughout the land . Nothing was said of course about the way Unborn Children are treated throughout this Land . She then said that we Live in A Democracy and we’re all entitled to our Opinions. I hit back at her and said that my opinions especially of the LGBTQ2WXYZ. Lot could get me Prison Time with the present regime in Power in Scotland. She has never answered me back . I wonder why . ?

  2. Really interesting topic of discussion.

    It’s a terrible Bill (albeit, it’s only a draft Bill, at this point) which is being brought in to replace the Blasphemy Act. The man from Free To Disagree is wrong in saying that it’s different from the one in England & Wales – it’s almost the exact same.

    The SNP will be blamed for this and, although they are the main progenitors of the new proposed law, every other party supports it. Even if we vote out the SNP, nothing will change. The Tories will pretend that they don’t like it but, once they know that it has enough support at Holyrood, they’ll just abstain – like they did with Named Person legislation.

    Stephen Daisley has done a terrific write-up for the Spectator. Well worth a read

    • Billy,

      While it’s true that the other Parties are wimpishly following the lead of the SNP (although one Conservative MP was very active in her support for the campaign against the evil Named Person Scheme) there is no question about the SNP’s tyrannical governance, with or without the assistance of the rest of the useless political cohort at Holyrood. Not having studied the English legislation on hate crime, I’m nevertheless inclined to accept the word of Dr Waiton, given that the SNP Government is dedicated to being “first” in every evil field, keen to be seen as breaking barriers, crossing boundaries, taking the lead in immorality. That the SNP Government is well on its way to achieving this is is nowhere more obvious than in education; have you seen John Swinney defending the SNP decision to teach pornography in schools? Seeing is believing…

      • Editor,

        It’s only a draft Bill. It still has to go through it’s second reading, i.e. it is still far from being enshrined into law, at the present time. However, if the Bill is enacted into law as it currently stands (without further amendments) then it won’t be too long until it is challenged (and likely defeated) in the courts, much in the same way as the NPS was.

        I have seen the Scottish Family Party’s video about John Swinney. There is a massive difference between legislation concerning education and, likewise, speech laws. Notably, that any speech laws will be the ultimate remit of centralised government (in this case, Holyrood), whereas education is remit both centrally and at Council level. This is how, when the minority SNP government failed to secure enough cross-party support for their education legislation at Holyrood, they went straight to SNP-led councils and implemented it via the backdoor. Pretty sleekit, if you ask me. This will not be possible with speech laws.

        I noticed that you have suggested people air their concerns via the public consultation process. I would wholeheartedly agree with you. We must try to apply as much pressure as possible on parliament.

        The SNP are on the verge of imploding and we must help them along. The very public disagreements between the SNP politicians concerning so-called Gender Recognition Act and the fallout re: Salmond, evinces this.

        • Billy,

          You seem to be labouring under the misapprehension that I think this draft bill is already law. I don’t. Obviously, it’s not yet enshrined in law. So what? Nothing to see here, move along?

          As for your response to the video – I really do wonder at times, I really do wonder.

          The point was not to link education and speech crime. Still, I think it’s a bit like a joke – if you have to explain it, there’s no point. OR a pandemic – if you have to prove it, there isn’t one.

          • Editor,

            I was simply providing context for foreign readers of the blog who may not be overly-familiar with our mode of lawmaking here, in Scotland. I agree that the bill in nonsense; draft, or otherwise.

            • Foreign? You serious? Foreign, Billy? Something tells me you’ve already fallen foul of this new law, draft bill or no draft bill 😀

              Just wait for that knock on the door…

              • Editor,

                You joke but some people from faraway places struggle to understand our ways and culture.

                To exemplify this, I will quote (below) a transcription of a foreigner reviewing a Skye hotel, online:

                “Likes – Location and view were superb. Very clean and had everything we need.

                Dislikes – You have got to do something with that brown tablet bar you put on each of our beds. Not only was it gritty and left an oily residue but it disintegrated before the shower was done. I have had much better exfoliating bar scrubs.”

                😂

  3. Hate crime is thought crime, which is one of the required key policies of the police state. But as a momentary aside, does anyone know what the position of these two gentlemen is on the lockdown? Thought crime, after all, is just another facet of controlling the population by fear-induced psychotic germophobia. Have they been objecting to the lockdown?

    That said, it appears to me that your SNP is a fusion between Nazi fascism (“nationalism”) and Stalinism. But I wonder if any of their ideologues could explain how love of country results in hatred of your own countrymen. They couldn’t, but as long as they are satisfying the depraved demands of well-funded special interest pressure groups, apparently they don’t care.

    As for the term “hate,” the origin of that clearly points to hell. Who is it that hates God? Who is it that hates men? Who is it that hates the Catholic Church? Who is it that hates the truth? And above all, who is it that is clever enough to invert his own hatred, disguise it and weaponize it as a new truth, a new morality, a new justice, a new compassion, a new enlightenment – which succeeds in condemning and persecuting actual truth, actual morality, actual justice, actual compassion and actual enlightenment?

    His name starts with “L” and ends with “r.”

    Momentary aside #2: I wonder how long it will take for the Scottish bishops to surrender to this? Surrender disguised, of course, in meaningless bureaucratic gibberish – their specialty.

    Welcome to 1984…

    • RCA Victor,

      There has been no public figure voicing opposition to the lockdown in Scotland. Not a one. So, although the interviewer in the Talk Radio interview is clearly a sceptic, (a) he is English, not living in Scotland and (b) he is merely interviewing others, not speaking for himself.

      Love your paragraph about “hate” – spot on.

      However, you’re way behind on the Scottish Bishops. They surrendered to the SNP a long time ago. If you want to get invited to the morning coffee events, you have to be “supportive” of those doing the inviting.

      When Peter Kearney made his allegiance to the SNP public, it was clear to one and all that – yet again – he was speaking for the Bishops. Well, he IS their spokesman, after all…

    The SNP was once known as the “Scottish No Pope” party, it was so openly hostile to Catholicism. Hence, from the get go it has been a counter-Christian, counter-cultural Marxist organisation. No true Catholic with an ounce of real faith would entertain a political party as wicked as this one, yet we find lots of nominal Catholics lending them support. Truly apocalyptic times.

    Nothing that this SNP government comes up with surprises me, though its policies are very predictable for those who understand Gramsci’s cultural Marxist road map. What is utterly appalling is that the Scottish hierarchy has fully capitualted in the face of this governing evil and that raises the very real question of whether any bishop in Scotland has the faith at all. The Covid-19 rules in our churches is so disgusting I can’t even bring myself to discuss it further. Never in my wildest dreams did I believe that the bishops would mock Our Lord in His own House to such an extent. Absolute evil!

    RCAVictor

    Your paragraph on “hate” was absolutely spot on, nail on the head!

    • Athanasius,

      “Gramsci’s cultural Marxist road map”

      Exactly right. I’m like you, the very idea of any Catholic, let alone a bishop, supporting such an openly Communist political party just leaves me cold.

      All the parties in the UK are enslaved to cultural Marxism of course, but none so obviously as the SNP. They’ve whipped up nationalism and Scotland being so anti-English (or a section of the community being that way inclined) that’s why they are getting support. I hope and pray it doesn’t last much longer, definitely hope it ends at the next Holyrood elections.

  5. The Scottish Government is conducting one of their meaningless public consultations on this proposed new law – I received one of the Christian Institute notifications about it, but because I’m having problems with my mouse (keeps freezing) I just don’t have the time to battle to find the information they provide, including responses to the consultation questions. They do say it”s not necessary to answer every question – key question in # 6, so I would urge everyone to check that out. Here’s is the Christian Institute pdf on the subject, but I just don’t have the time to find the same material that is in their email. It’s not readily accessible on their website, which is odd.

    Like the majority of the population in Scotland I spent hours working on their consultation on same-sex “marriage” and, for once, to be on the winning side (60+% of us voted against) only to be ignored. We got same-sex “marriage” anyway, so I’m not prepared to waste a lot of time on any more of their daft “consultations”, which are no such thing. One question, however, I can do, and I hope others will, as well.

    • Editor and Athanasius,

      I’m ready to conclude that your bishops are the Scottish equivalent and counterpart of the Chinese Patriotic Catholic Association: owned, controlled and directed, lock, stock and barrel, by the State.

  6. There is a new pressure group campaigning to Defund the BBC – about time. The website is here: https://www.defundbbc.uk The BBC is nothing more than a Marxist tool of subversion and perversion and instead of listening to viewers, it has now announced it is spending an EXTRA £100 million pounds of taxpayer’s money, on ‘increasing diversity’ (and we all know what that means). Join up to the campaign! (You’re not obliged to donate or pay to become a member).

    • Westminster Fly,

      I had a look at the site but I’m not sure it would work for me, cancelling my Direct Debit, because I don’t bother with the channels listed, e.g. Netflix, but I get lots of other channels that I’m not sure I would still get. Ironically, I hardly ever watch anything on the BBC.

      • Same here. I never watch the BBC. Therefore how do I un-subscribe? Anyone know? I consider the BBC a bunch of woke deceivers and so do most of my friends. The more “educated” they are, the more brainwashed they are. They live in this woke bubble with their woke friends and are completely out of touch with the ordinary populace.

  7. Another very sinister law from the SNP, following on from their failed “named person” wheeze.

    I am sure good points will be made against this scheme, but I would be surprised if this doesn’t sail through Holyrood in a relatively comfortable fashion. Most MSPs (esp SNP) are just “nodding dogs” as is the Scottish Judiciary.

    I would not be surprised to see this go all the way to the UK Supreme Court before being brought down. It took the Supreme Court to torpedo the “named person” scheme. The Supreme Court is a great positive for the Union imo.

    The vague wording in the scheme is classic SNP: it is deliberately vague to allow Courts and poltiicians to decide what to include or exclude on a case by case basis, as suits the SNP.
