FREE SPEECH CRACKDOWN: Europe tells British press NOT to reveal if terrorists are Muslims

Infidel Bloggers Alliance

. . . “ In this context, it draws attention to a recent study by Teeside University suggesting that where the media stress the Muslim background of perpetrators of terrorist acts, and devote significant coverage to it, the violent backlash against Muslims is likely to be greater than in cases where the perpetrators’ motivation is downplayed or rejected in favour of alternative explanations.' ” . . .
. . . " 'It recommends more rigorous training for journalists to ensure better compliance with ethical standards.” But as Britain prepares to leave the crumbling bloc, the Government waded in to defend freedom of expression. 
""In a written statement to the ECRI, the Government said: “The Government is committed to a free and open press and does not interfere with what the press does and does not publish, as long as the press abides by the law.' ”
Rick Moran: European commission tells British press not to use 'Muslim' to identify terrorists . . . "The problem with ECRI is its interpretation of "hate speech."  ECRI administrators appear to be saying that any speech that offends anyone is hate speech. 

"But what's really chilling is that they want the government to step in and order journalists and publications to toe the line.  To do that, government would have to oversee the editing process to ensure that no "hate speech" is accidentally posted.  Imagine letting some of those ECRI creeps determine what the British people read.
"Needless to say, the ECRI report should make U.K. citizens grateful they voted to leave the EU.  Let the rest of Europe deal with these pompous asses who are as big a threat to freedom as Hitler or Stalin ever was."
