Elisabeth Another Victim Of Free Speech!

 Gates of Vienna reported on October 20th that our Austrian correspondent Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff has been given a court date (November 23) for her trial on "hate speech" charges. She has been charged for speaking the simple truth about Islam.

Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff learned through the media that she — like Netherlander Geert Wilders and Canadian Ezra Levant — had been charged with "hate speech" and "denigration of religious teachings". Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff's "offense" is to defend freedom of speech and much more against a tsunami of barbarism and against the politically correct silence and hushing-up. The subject of the complaint is the mere fact that she even gives Islam-critical seminars. For example, the indictment charges her with "hate speech" for the following statement: "Sharia is a definite no-no. We want no gender apartheid, no ghetto's, no social and cultural discrimination, no polygamy, no theocracy, no hate..."

Also watch Mark Steyn's response to her coming up trial:

Fake trials by fake prosecutors to calm politicians and lefties own fears of offending immigrants who refuse to adjust to their new countries. Multiculturalism gone horribly wrong. Lawfare in the extreme.

Austria also persecutes those with the temerity to address that part of history that concerns the Holocaust (under the same laws at issue here).

In 2007 they jailed historian David Irving for just that "offense", and kept him for a year.

Sabaditsch-Wolff's guilt or innocence is not at issue. What's at issue is the law.
