Scottish lawmakers pass controversial hate crime bill

Scottish lawmakers have passed Scotland’s controversial hate crime bill by 82–32 votes. The legislation not only cements the existing law on hate crimes but extends protection for vulnerable groups with a new offense of ’stirring up hatred.’ Despite some changes in the original bill, concerns have been raised about certain points, like the prosecution of people for remarks in their own home.

So Scotland enshrines Nazi/Communist levels of speech policing and the Guardians take is, not doing enough for women.

Reminder, two men have been arrested in Scotland in the last year for comparing Sturgeon to Hitler, if your response to criticism labelling you a dictator is to arrest those who criticise you, you might be guilty... this law is a disgrace it’s open to interpretation, anyone can say anything has offended them and label it hate, parliament needs to step in. This is evidence of the devolution disaster, the Scottish parliament is infringing the rights of its citizens. Enemies of the people, SNP has a lot in common with the Dems

Fascism is bad. Anyone who thinks otherwise is a thought criminal and shall be put to death. This is the new democracy. We can all see that this isn't freedom right?

Reminder for anyone who needs a TL;DR on the current Scottish government and Sturgeon's crimes aside from putting two people in jail for comparing her to Hitler which seems more and more accurate by the day excluding the mass murders and war thing.

Quite horrific that a government decides what is and what isn't so called "hate speech" I hope it includes protecting the Super Straights.

You shouldn't base legislation on words or concepts that have fluid meaning for reasons that should be obvious

Here is the usa most hate crimes are committed by black nationalist like the black israelites. Unless they somehow offer immunity for black people they better worry what they ask for. LA Jews reeling after local institutions looted and burned in Floyd protests Synagogues, schools and Jewish memorials vandalized with anti-Semitic, anti-Israel slogans, Jewish-owned businesses battered, particularly in Fairfax district Jersey City Shooting Suspects Allegedly Targeted Kosher Bodega New Surveillance Video Shows Brooklyn Anti-Semitic Attacks Black Hanukkah attack suspect researched Hitler online

I feel that hate speech should be addressed and should be shown as evil from an early age, but as far as punishment goes, I think it should be just mandatory seminars teaching against bigoted speech... I can't imagine what would happen to my grandparents stuck in their ways if it was any worst a punishment, despite how much it disgusts me they say those things.
