European Court of Human Rights Promotes Human Wrongs

Gatestone:

One might also wonder where, in the European Convention on Human Rights, “feelings” are mentioned. Following the court’s logic, would it be appropriate to cover the windows of steakhouses not to hurt the feelings of animal activists? Or only if they threatened to riot? Is the new ruling just a capitulation to extortionistic threats of violence?

The supposition seems to be, “If you had just kept quiet, these bad things (fill in the blank) would not be happening.” It is both a false premise — the “bad things” might have happened anyway, as they did, for example, when the Bataclan Theater in Paris or the Brussels airport were attacked — and it is a demand for enforced self-censorship. Moreover, who gets to decide who is accountable? Who watches the watchers?

How soon will the public be asked to stop other activities — drinking alcohol, men and women dancing together, ringing church bells, art that depicts the human image, separation of religion and state, and equal justice under the law for women, to name just a few — that also might hurt “religious feelings?”

Will the ECHR’s Grand Chamber — the only authority that could reverse the decision — correct this treacherous path?

    “How soon will the public be asked to stop other activities – ……”?
    The answer will he very soon after the Sharia loving intelligentsia (Isn’t that an oxymoron, by the way?) take control, and that doesn’t seem so far away going by recent Government actions. Then, the public won’t be asked, they’ll be told!

    The intent is going to be to silence dissent against Muslims. No other religion, just Islam.

    This sort of nonsense should be thrown out of court and dismissed as the comedy farce it is but it won’t be, because – for goodness knows what reason* the sstate refuses to do so.

    * Ah, but of course. The Muslim is dependent on the welfare state, is desperately pro no borders – to get here and sponge off our wealth – and as a militant war machine (as all religions are) wants to conquer new lands. The EU wants also to destabilise borders, create a voting bloc and demolish the nation state, so will, instinctively promote the Muslim.

    Of course, when there are no white people left to pay or it all what happens then?

    It’s not for me. Impersonating police is a crime.

    Golly, it is going back to Cromwell’s day when singing and dancing were forbidden. And a lot else too.
