Fraught hate speech laws should go – ACT

Hate Speech laws news

“Justice Minister Kris Faafoi has this morning admitted how naive his Government has been about its proposed hate speech laws,” says ACT Leader David Seymour.

“In an interview with Q+A Faafoi said the discussion document has shown how “fraught” this issue is.

“This is what ACT has said all along. The hate speech laws would create a divided and hateful society where cancel culture would spiral out of control.

“Faafoi should now concentrate on the huge issues this country faces with out of control gang crime instead of locking people up for saying things he doesn’t agree with.

“Faafoi claims that Cabinet will consider hate speech in the next few months but he wouldn’t commit to a law being passed before the election.

“It’s time to let this misguided policy go. It’s ok to admit when you’re wrong and move on.

“While the perpetually offended will be disappointed they won’t be able to start petitions and lynch mobs against people they disagree with, most New Zealanders will be pleased to see the back of this dangerous and hateful.”

  1. NWO calls for all subordinate puppet governments to have their own “Ministry of trurth”. Kris Faafoi was working towards this but his IQ is rather low unfortunately. Laxon and Jabcinda are the same. We will soon have our own “Ministry of Truth” full made into Law with the support of Act and Greens. I dont trust main stream media and legacy political parties in NZ.

  2. You either have free speech or you don’t. The end.

    ANY restrictions for ANY reason means you don’t have free speech.

    Yes, some people are evil. Yes, some people say offensive things, and yes, sometimes people have their feelings hurt.

    If someone says something that offends you, you have the right to reply and tell them where to stick their opinions. This is good for you in the long run, it’ll make you tougher, smarter, and who knows over time you may even change a few people’s opinions or change a few of your own. Discourse leads to personal growth.

    You DO NOT have the right to demand other people be forced to shut up. It’s evil and quite frankly stupid. There is no way to stop an idea, no matter how reprehensible you think it might be. All you’ll do is make things fester. Better for things to be discussed and debated out in the open, no matter how much government might hate that idea

    • It’s all soooo tragic isn’t it? No one is forcing anyone to play. If some tw*t has something to say it’s always fun to think of something back.

      Most trolls just sound like someone’s angry lesbian mother.
