Fascists Hate Your Thoughtcrimes

Indian law would make criticizing GM crops an imprisonable offense

"Criticising Genetically Modified (GM) products could land you in jail."

Making remembering the Nakba a thought crime

"The Nakba law is coming up again for consideration in the Knesset Constitution, Law and Justice Committee, in a more moderate version than before but with the same motivation: to frighten everyone who wishes to commemorate the human and political tragedy that occurred in 1948, in which the Zionists expelled most of the Palestinian inhabitants of the country and the state of Israel destroyed most of the localities in which they lived."

Hungary criminalises holocaust denial

"Hungary's parliament approved a bill making Holocaust denial punishable by up to three years in prison, but the measure may be unconstitutional."

Moscow to make it a crime to criticize Soviet military in Second World War

"Russia is to outlaw criticism of Soviet military tactics during the Second World War.
The plan was announced after a television documentary exposed the scale of human losses during one of the conflict's bloodiest battles."

Criticizing Israel may be deemed a crime

"...the Zionists, who took over Judaism and “changed” it to a neocon rightwing violent nationalist movement akin to Al-Qaeda, are now attempting to include criticism of both the State of Israel and Zionism as the “new” Anti-Semitism."

Woman, 61, arrested for asking ‘why’

"Four women, two of them well into middle age, were discussing funeral plans for a friend when an Atlanta police officer told them to move.
Three did but one asked “why.” In answer to her question, Minnie Carey, then 61, was handcuffed, put into a police wagon and taken to jail, where she was held for nine hours."

"We expect every american to support our military and if they can't do that, to shut up."

"And you'll find nothing better to respond with than a lamblike bleat: "Me? What for?"

I wonder if the woman in Atlanta had to pay a lawyer for the 3 times she went to court and the prosecutor or arresting officer didn't bother to show up.

Maybe she and the cop will go to the White House and have a beer together.
