Neo-Nazi....

This is the place for thoughts that you want to share about nearly anything that comes to mind. Politics is ok as well. All notions and opinions are the view of the poster and not this site. Just remain civil in whatever you wish to express.

Police said 22 suspected members or associates of National Action were arrested last year.

The proscription means that being a member of or inviting support for the organisation is a criminal offence carrying a sentence of up to 10 years' imprisonment.


What I want to know is why the don't just arrest everyone at a demo and put the lot in prison......... :roll:

They do that sort of thing, arrest everybody at a demonstration, in some countries, Duncan....like Egypt and Saudi Arabia and any number of other countries where they don't have a notion of what freedom of speech means as a concept of a Democracy. In the place of freedom of speech they have a set of strict rules of conduct and resulting punishments for spoken disquietude. It's not a difficult concept.....freedom of speech. My wife used to tell the kids when they were little and picking at each other..."you can't hit for saying". I think that point of view should be a universal one for adults...and countries... as well. If it is alright to arrest people for verbally arguing what is politically not acceptable by a large segment of society then it is likely that the people who agree with that policy will one day be the focus of it for something they advocate that they don't see as subversive but the authoritarian in group does.

In the US we aren't immune by a long shot. Look at California where it is against the law to protest on behalf of Palestinians by publicly advocating boycotting Israel manufactured products and services. It's because it is considered anti Hebrew bigotry by people that may or may not be Muslim and not a political advocacy point of view.

It is not a question of Freedom of Speech anymore..............These people belong to a banned organisation and are therefore breaking the law of the land.
I do not believe anyone with such beliefs should be allowed to flaunt them in public - they should face the full force of the law.

Banned Organization? Against the law? Arrest them all then. But isn't that how revolutions start? :bigsmile:

Nope! Fascism, Nazism and twisted religious doctrines are all a threat to be dealt with - especially in Europe....We know.

I can understand your point of view. However, when Nazism was the law maker in Germany and Fascism was the law of the land in Italy and Communism was the law in Russia I bet anyone who spoke out against the law of the land was dealt with in a way that was not......Democratic..... philosophically speaking of course. :cry:
