THE TIMES — Conversations over the dinner table that incite hatred must be prosecuted under Scotland’s hate crime law, the justice secretary has said.

Journalists and theatre directors should also face the courts if their work is deemed to deliberately stoke up prejudice, Humza Yousaf said.

The Hate Crime and Public Order (Scotland) Bill has been condemned by critics including the Scottish Catholic Church, police representatives, academics and artists. It will introduce an offence of stirring-up of hatred against people with protected characteristics, including disability, sexual orientation and age.

  1. The land of my ancestors has gone 1984 on steroids with this proposed new law. If I’m any judge of the true Scots, they are going to tell their politicians to shove the new law. Even if it goes through, the Scottish people will laugh and ignore such an absurd new law. Humza Yousaf is a subversive anti-white mole of the type we see in every western country that believes it’s just swell to displace the very people who made the country successful.

    • Yes- just imagine the ‘little pitchers with big ears’ whose minds are battered into unnatural, ungodly ‘new morality’ (as developed in the 1960s) by the hammer & sickle of ‘equality, inclusiveness, diversity’ coupled with the old hippie ‘peace, love, & harmony’ trinity. How dutifully will impressionable youth rat on their family members for anything said against talmudic legislation?

  2. Its back to the Middle-ages witch hunts program …

    And for years , they pumped our ears full with the words ” progress ” … ” democrassie ” ,
    ” freedom of choice ” … etc … etc … !!!
