is the word free. We have forgotten how valuable it is? We have forgotten to cherish the freedom of speech, to use it with respect and not least, mutual respect?
Nima Zamani, lawyer, radio host and blogger on the daily telegraph, reminded us this week of how fortunate we are. His parents escaped from an islamist Iran, where – as he wrote – the target is still censorship, and the agent is still violence.
Nima went in right with them, the last few days have been behind the violent riots and clashes with the police in connection with the Rasmus paludan's provocations.
They have no idea how privileged they are, he wrote.
if our politicians know how privileged they are. And also whether they adhere to the responsibilities they bear as the people's servants?
the Context is still the current fuss about the Rasmus Paludan. Debater and lawyer Natasha Al-Hariri described it on Twitter like crazy, to TV2 wrote, that there is no evidence to call the City for the right-wing.
My errand is not to go into the debate. Anyone is free to update on the firm and its policies on the party's website.
is to put the focus on the way in which the minister of trade Rasmus Jarlov responded.
He started, quite legitimately, to mark its disagreement in the thread on Twitter, where he wrote that TV2 has the right.
But after a few exchanges between him and Al-Hariri came as a message from Jarlov, which reveals him as a self-appointed judge of whether we are informed enough to participate in the debate. Tweetet reads verbatim as follows:
’You should get a ban to comment on politics until you have at least put you into what right and left mean in politics. It is embarrassing that you don't know it and think you are right, because you are a racist.’
sad that an elected official, even a minister, in a context where freedom of expression is in focus, uses her to desire another human being deprived of his right to speak out, until she in his optics is knowledgeable enough to deserve it.
I allow myself to have an expectation that the politicians make themselves at the front and sets a high standard. That a minister rises above the ordinary hånlighed and ridicule, which is a term for a part of the debate on social media.
The expectation, unfortunately I can good package together in this case. Jarlov do not want to promise free speech, but to take it from it, he disagrees with.
