U.S. Leading Effort to Criminalize Free Speech?

UN Human Rights Council

In short, a mere cosmetic change in a resolution has resulted in a radical shift in the West’s—and specifically United States’ and therefore Europe’s —policy toward the OIC’s efforts to restrict free speech..

If we do no wake up quickly, recognize the implications of that policy shift, and reverse course, this “mere” cosmetic change may result in a radical shift in the protections for freedom of speech in the United States.

The Human Rights Council concluded its nineteenth session on March 23, 2012 and adopted, without a vote, yet another resolution aimed at restricting freedom of speech throughout the world.
