Labour Party's Ed Miliband says he would make 'Islamophobia' illegal if he becomes UK PM

Rebel Staff

In an interview with Muslim News, Labour Party leader Ed Miliband says he would make "Islamophobia" illegal.

“We are going to make it an aggravated crime. We are going to make sure it is marked on people’s records with the police to make sure they root out Islamophobia as a hate crime,” he told Ahmed J Versi of Muslim News.

“We are going to change the law on this so we make it absolutely clear of our abhorrence of hate crime and Islamophobia. It will be the first time that the police will record Islamophobic attacks right across the country,” he added.

Miliband said that the Muslim community is an “incredibly important, incredibly rich, incredible asset to our country.”

In 2015, The Muslim Action forum called for depictions of Muhammad to be classified as "hate speech."

With such a vague term such as "Islamophobia," would Miliband be in favour of banning depictions of Muhammad?

Say it again and again ‘GIVE ME LIBERTY OR GIVE ME DEATH’…if we all stand together they won’t have enough paper to write up the writs…or enough room to lock us all up…we will not allow those who threaten everything about worldwide liberty to add imprisonment for speaking the truth.

Talking about hate speech, what contains more hate speech than the Qur’an. Consider these verses from the Qur’an.
1. Surah 9:5 of the Qu’ran says “But when the forbidden months are past, then fight and slay the Pagans (Non-Muslims) wherever you find them, and seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every strategem.
2. Surah 8:39 says “and fight them on until there is no more tumult or oppression, and there prevail justice and faith in Allah altogether and everywhere” Again, Surah 8:55 says “
3. Surah 8:55 says “To Allah, there are no animals viler than those who do not believe (in Allah) and remain unbelievers.
4. Suran 5:51 says “O you who believe! do not take the Jews and Christians for your friends and protectors:”

My God Ho Hum. you’re right!

No different than Wynne accusing the opposition of homophobia! When there is an agenda to be pushed, people will do anything to ensure they are successful! If you cannot get your own way, make a new law! (and in Canada, the Supreme Court will support it!)

All these far left politicians are just going to loose their heads, if they pursue this as a cause to get behind. (pun intended)

There is no such thing as islamophobia. A phobia is an irrational fear and there is nothing irrational about wanting nothing to do with any of the following:
Child marriage, forcing women to wear black tarps, intolerance, beheadings, goat rape, stoning or hanging homosexuals, halal meat, selling women and young girls (as young as 5) into sex slavery, and killing Christians and those of the Jewish faith for nothing more than practicing their faith.
I suggest everyone that reads this goes to youtube and searches the name Pat Condell. Find his channel and start watching. Share it with everyone you know. He lives in the UK and hits this issue right on the head.

There are defining parallels that can be drawn between Islamic jihad and socialism. Sharia law is constructed and viewed in the same terms the totalitarian regimes in non-muslim countries have operated all over the world, since the great revolution of the Red Army, in 1917.

In the light of the above, is there any surprise that Mr. MILIBAND would conspire from within, for electoral purposes, to transform his country into a soon to be caliphate? The socialists have no understanding of what their foolish political correctness, run amok, will bring upon any christian democracy.

So twisted. You can’t have free speech and ban hate speech. Who gets to decide what hate speech is anyway. Free speech is all speech. Saying hateful things unfortunately is a part of that. I think what the left says about Harper is hate speech, they think its free speech. David Suzuki thinks climate change deniers are a form of hate speekers and wonders if they shouldn’t be jailed for it. I am so glad I don’t live in the UK. They are starting to fight back now, but it could be too late. I hope we can get a handle on things in Canada. Besides, considering what is going on around us , what is unreasonable about having a fear of Islam.

Well, if the Ed Miliband does that, the UK population should hope that he defines precisely what ‘Islamophobia’ really is otherwise it will be interpreted to anything and everything. I hope the left wing in this country do not try doing that here.

it tells a story of fear …the wrath of Islam is near

I bet his interview makes it into the Dumb and Dumber sequel!

He would want to ban the “fear of Islam”? Just how is he going to do that?

Shows his lack of language. What he means is “hatred of Islam”, which is another word altogether… and based on how the Muslims are acting, that “hatred” is not out-of-line…

Will be interesting to see the public reaction to this statement…

I say we make Islamphobia illegal, too. Immediately. Outlaw the very word.

As of right this minute, we are all free to hate whoever we like. Or not.

Ban islamaphobia? What about islamophilia then? Good for goose, good for gander, no?

Sure, go ahead and direct police to record incidents of islamsphobia. That would be like in all those crimes of sexual predation perpetrated by the Muslim rape gangs in Rotherham and other regions of Britain still hearing how police covered them up because of their own personal fear of islamophilia?

Like how police all over the world now bow to the Islamists by not recording child rape and human trafficking crimes perpetrated by the enemy on our own soil? Because recording those crimes would be islamophobia, right? So now when a child complains she has been gang raped by Muslims, she will be charged with islamophobia. Sounds sbout right. Yup.

I guess they will have to make ALL phobias illegal. Arachnaphobia, claustrophobia, liberalaphobia… The courts will be inundated with so many cases. I have donttakemetocourtbecauseyoubecameoffendedofsomethingimayhavesaidhthoughyoucantproveitphobia.

What about Magna Carta? The poor British people have no Freedom of Speech written in law. Both Labour and Conservative have band Micheal Savage from entering the U.K. He is a radio broadcaster in the U.S.A. this is how Britain has fallen to the left. Real British people if you are so unfortunate to have the Labour Party win the next election, hire ships and come to Canada with your wealth but leave your Muslims behind we have enough of them here.
If I were you I’d go down to the nearest cop shop and turn myself is for the crime of Islamophobia and save them time and money hunting me down. If you can’t speak whats on your mind you have no FREE SPEECH.
Have they taken away Speaker’s Corner? Canadians that is the corner where any free man or woman can say anything he,she,it wants to say.
Here’s what I say

What is he thinking? Votes that’s all. Blind to the truth.

Interesting how the socialist pigs of the world suck up to islamic terrorists.
Could be one of the same.

What a POS islamic apologist! No wonder the UK is in the toilet!

Ed is an atheist so his outlook is a bit warped. I believe his father was a Marxist. Pandering yes but there could be more to it.

A good example of left wing politicians selling there country to hell. Trudeau and Mulcair will do exactly the same thing. Hang them, they are Traitors.
commented 2015-04-27 17:44:44 -0400
Another politico pandering for the Muslim vote. Nothing more, nothing less.
