Video footage shows a PSNI officer citing “hate speech” before arresting Ryan Williamson, 44, in Larne in August, which he said was due to his stance against homosexuality. He was released 30 minutes later pending a report to prosecutors.

Mr Williamson and his two colleagues Robert Ervine, 34, also from Loughbrickland, and Sean Paul Tully, 43, from west Belfast regularly preach outdoors around NI and the republic, but say that they come under more and more pressure from the PSNI and Gardai to tone down their comments on homosexuality, following the increase in complaints. Now Mid and East Antrim Borough Councils have served ‘reduction’ notices on the trio, seen by the News Letter, warning them not to use public address systems in Larne or face a fine , citing figures of up to £ 20,000.

In a letter dated November 12, 2021, an environmental health official wrote to Williamson, under the headline “Reducing Existing Noise and Prohibiting Its Recurrence.”

Newsletter cut through the noise

The letter stated that “noise equivalent to a nuisance exists and is likely to occur on Broadway and Mainstreet” in the city, which “comes from music, singing and loud voices amplified by a loudspeaker.”

As the “person responsible” for the nuisance, the letters indicate, the council “hereby prohibits the reappearance of said nuisance” and warns that “if you do or do not comply, you will be liable to a fine not exceeding not level five (£ 5,000) ”.

He also warns that a person who commits an offense in an industrial trade or business premises will be liable to a fine of up to £ 20,000, although he does not explain how this could apply to the trio concerning.

However, despite the warning, Mr Williamson says he was back in Larne a few weeks before Christmas.

“We spoke to the police that day and there was no problem,” he said. “Someone called them to tell them that we were preaching hate, so they came down to see what was going on. They were very fair on this occasion and after seeing what we were doing they said they were going back to talk to the person who recorded the complaint.

Speaking of the council’s cutback notice, he said, “I think this is just part of a bigger effort to silence the gospel.”

He said council officials visited him three or four times to see him preach to Larne.

“A guy said we were working on council property. On another occasion, an officer walked around with a notepad but refused to speak to me. But the next thing you know, I got a letter.

He gave his contact details to the officials during one of their first meetings.

“I don’t mind going to court on this because I think what they’re doing is totally wrong.”

When asked if he would pay the fine, he added, “I’ll take my chances in court with this.”

He also had a meeting with council officials in Banbridge, where he also preaches, just before Christmas, he said.

“They were very cordial and ready to talk. They said they would send someone after Christmas to establish the noise levels for the preaching. So I said it was good and that I was ready to work with them on it.

The constant complaint against him is that he engages in hate speech.

“It’s pretty much always the same thing, but maybe we’ll mention homosexuality more now because it’s a bigger problem than it’s ever been before.

“All you have to say is ‘homosexuality is a sin according to the bible’ and quote Romans chapter one and 1 Corinthians 6: 9-10 and you get an explosive reaction no matter where you go.”

He says the police ombudsman is currently investigating his allegation of wrongful arrest in Larne in August. The trio were also arrested in Dundalk in September on public policy grounds and their case was adjourned until June.

Father Pat Buckley, an independent priest installed in Larne for 37 years, has been protesting against them in the city for several months.

“Well I’m glad someone is taking action against them because as a resident of Larne along with many other residents we don’t want them here,” he said of the council warning.

“Larne has had his problems over the years with divisions and people screaming and yelling at each other on the streets and we have come a long way in Larne and we want to keep the peace we have. In addition, we oppose their message to homosexuals.

He added: “I think we should have the freedom of speech and even the freedom to protest. But I also believe that we should not condemn and discriminate against people because of their sexual orientation.

He noted that although the book of Leviticus in the Bible condemns homosexuality, it also condemns the consumption of shrimp.

“I think it is very easy for the untrained and not the brightest to use the scriptures for their own purposes and I really consider them to be quite ignorant of understanding the scriptures,” he added.

The newsletter previously contacted a wide range of organizations but found no one to defend Mr Williamson’s arrest in Larne.

Without commenting on the specific case, the Alliance Party, NI Humanists and Amnesty International all agreed that freedom of expression must be protected, but must not get lost in hate speech. Project Rainbow was also invited to comment.

Local DUP MP Sammy Wilson and LGBT activist Peter Tatchell have both criticized the PSNI’s arrest of Mr Williamson. However, the Green Party called for new regulations to regulate the trio preaching outside Belfast City Hall, amid concerns over “loud speakers” and “targeting minorities”.

The trio also face public order charges for preaching after being arrested in Dundalk in September, with the case adjourned until June.

A local shaking-up priest known for his anti-LGBT + outbursts is to be charged in court with hate speech in Malta.

Earlier this month, Father David Muscat launched a homophobic tirade following the murder of Paulina Dembska, a 29-year-old Polish student.

In a bubbling Facebook post, Muscat addressed Dembska’s alleged murderer, saying being gay or bisexual would amount to “schizophrenia and meanness.”

Abner Aquilina reportedly told detectives he was “taken in by the devil” when he committed the murder – but being gay, Muscat said, is “even worse than being possessed.”

His comments on Dembska’s murder, a case that sparked a nationwide outcry against gender-based violence, drew widespread criticism from activists, government ministers and religious figures.

Police confirmed that hate speech charges were filed following the remarks, the Malta timetables reported.

Muscat will appear in court on January 28 before magistrate Ian Farrugia, who faces thousands of fines and up to 18 months in prison.

He will be charged under article 82A of the penal code, which is part of the country’s anti-discrimination laws regarding “abusive or insulting words or behavior”.

Along with his rant about Aquilina, authorities said another social media comment in which Muscat said Aquilina looked like he had returned from “gay pride” because he was wearing a top. Rainbow will also be closely examined.

Maltese Archbishop issues formal warning against David Muscat

On Thursday, the Archdiocese of Malta confirmed that Archbishop Charles Scicluna had issued a private warning, known as a penal precept, against Muscat.

In a statement posted on the Archdiocese’s website, Muscat was ordered to “stop making inflammatory and hurtful comments in public forums or be banned from ministering in public.”

“The Archbishop asked Father David Muscat to remove a Facebook post in which the priest said being gay was worse than being possessed, and not to use insulting or hurtful language against any group or individual .

“The Archbishop also reminded Father David Muscat that, in accordance with Catholic teaching, members of the clergy are required to show respect, compassion and sensitivity to people of all walks of life. “

These are the latest rounds against Muscat, who came under fire after commenting on 20-year-old Aquilina, who police sources say is on the verge of being charged with Dembska’s murder.

Dembska was found dead on January 2 in a public park where she once fed stray cats, and an autopsy concluded that she had been raped and strangled.

Muscat wrote in his incendiary statute: “If [Aquillina] is gay or bisexual, then this should be added to his list of disorders that include schizophrenia and meanness.

“He has a recipe for mess at a time. Poor man.

“Abner needs help,” he added, “it’s even worse than being possessed. Being gay is worse.

Scicluna quickly pushed the Roman Catholic Church away from Muscat in a televised homily.

Although he did not name Muscat by name, he “apologized on behalf of the Church to all who have been hurt by” recent “harsh” homophobic remarks by a priest.

Lawmakers, meanwhile, are heading into the mid-terms with starkly contrasting political narratives of last year’s violence: Democrats want online businesses to do more to eliminate election-related misinformation, while Republicans allege that these platforms are taking advantage of the riot to censor right-wing voices.

“One of the most alarming developments of 2021 since the insurgency has been an effort, especially among influencers and politicians, to normalize conspiracy theories around election denial,” said Mary McCord, former head of National Security and Executive Director of the Institute for Constitutional at Georgetown University. Advocacy and protection.

“They have integrated ideologically motivated violence,” she added. “An alarming number of Americans now believe that violence may be necessary to ‘save the country’.”

A political hot potato

One of the main reasons that policymakers and social media companies still struggle to contain the January 6 lies is that the assault on Capitol Hill itself has become contested territory.

In the days following the riots, Republicans and Democrats condemned the deadly violence, with longtime Trump allies such as Senator Lindsey Graham (RS.C.) calling for an end to hostilities. Trump himself was repelled by many of his supporters and even by some of his own candidates immediately after January 6.

This initial bipartisanship gave social media giants political cover to wipe out tons of election misinformation and pass data on to law enforcement investigating the attack. Trump’s bans – though Google’s YouTube platform and Facebook reserved the right to reinstate him ahead of the 2024 presidential election – also marked a turning point.

“Trump was twisted when companies crossed a line into a new type of app,” said Katie Harbath, a former Facebook public policy executive who previously worked for the Republicans’ Senate National Campaign. “After that, they felt more comfortable removing content posted by politicians.”

This comfort did not last long.

Instead, GOP voters and politicians have increasingly embraced the lies about the 2020 election that helped fuel the attack, while Congress – and many in the country – is divided according to left on what really happened on January 6th. This has left social media companies vulnerable to partisan attacks for any action they take or don’t take in connection with last year’s riots.

For Democrats, businesses just haven’t done enough.

“It’s clear that some social media companies have chosen profits over personal safety,” said Rep. Frank Pallone (DN.J.), chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, which brought in Facebook CEOs , Twitter and Google to testify. on their role before the January 6 uprising. “These companies have no intention of making their platforms more secure and have instead taken steps to amplify content that endangers our communities and incites violence.”

Republicans, however, have increasingly turned rioters into freedom fighters, raising valid questions about the election outcome. Lawmakers, including Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) Described the Democrats’ investigation into the insurgency as a “political witch hunt against Republicans and Trump supporters.” (Greene, who made the accusation in a Facebook video that has received 309,000 views since early December, saw his personal Twitter account permanently suspended this week for posting false information about Covid.)

They are also mobilizing around people who have been excluded from social networks.

Minority Parliamentary Leader Kevin McCarthy has threatened retaliation against the liability protections online businesses enjoy under a law known as Section 230, which protects businesses from lawsuits for the most of the content posted by users and allows them to moderate or remove content that they find objectionable.

McCarthy warned in a series of tweets Tuesday, after Greene’s suspension, that a future Republican majority would work to ensure that if Twitter and other social media companies remove “constitutionally protected (not obscene and obscene) speech,” they “will lose 230 protections “.

“Acting as a publisher and a censorship regime should mean stopping the business model you rely on today, and I will work to make that happen,” he added.

For Democrats, the failure of platforms to stop all January 6 hate speech from circulating online underscores the need for new laws. They were hoping to gain traction thanks to disclosures last fall by Facebook whistleblower Frances Haugen, who released internal documents showing the tech giant struggled to contain insurgent messages before January 6.

Democrat-led bill introduced after Haugen’s Senate appearance seeks to remove Section 230 protections from online platforms if they ‘knowingly or recklessly’ use algorithms to recommend content that can cause serious emotional harm or physical offline. The bill lacks Republican support and has been criticized for potentially infringing on free speech.

In several briefings, lawmakers and staff on both sides confronted large social media companies with accusations they played a role in the attacks, according to two tech officials who spoke on condition of anonymity for discuss closed meetings. Discussions have often become personal, with policymakers accusing corporations of playing fast and loose with American democracy.

With little bipartisan agreement, one of the tech executives added, social networks are increasingly cautious in how they handle January 6-related content that does not categorically violate their terms of service.

“Congress has struggled to find a proper course to follow,” Coons conceded when asked about the role of lawmakers in handling Jan.6 and election disinformation. “We have different views on which harm needs to be stopped the most depending on our policy and because – as a society – we are committed to free speech. “

The rabbit hole of disinformation

Since the Capitol Hill riots, major social networks have deleted countless accounts associated with white supremacists and domestic extremists. They changed the algorithms to prevent the January 6 conspiracy videos from appearing in people’s feeds. The companies supported investments in fact-checking partnerships and online election-related clearinghouses.

Yet scratch the surface, and it’s still relatively easy to find widely shared messages denying the election results, politicians promoting the January 6 lies to millions of followers and, in the more obscure parts of Europe. Internet, coordinated campaigns to fuel suspicion of Biden’s victory in 2020 and to coordinate potential violent responses.

POLITICO uncovered tons of posts related to the 2020 election and January 6 disinformation, on six separate social media networks, over a four-week period ending January 4, 2022. The results were based on data collected via CrowdTangle, a Facebook-owned social media analytics tool that examines posts on the platform and on Twitter, as well as separate analytics through YouTube and three fringe social networks, Gettr, Telegram, and Gab.

The content included partisan attacks by elected officials and online influencers peddling falsehoods about January 6 to large online audiences. Within niche online communities on alternative social media, domestic extremists have shared violent images and openly discussed the attacks on election officials.

Asks the premier of Alberta to apologize for comments made in year-end interview

On Saturday, members of the Calgary Chinese community gathered outside the McDougall Center to call on the Prime Minister to issue a formal apology.

Some in attendance believed that Kenney’s comments contributed to the anti-Asian discrimination and hatred that some Chinese citizens have suffered since the start of the pandemic.

“People cannot express their anger with China,” Jiannong Wu said. “They express it with us.”

The story continues under the ad

Another protester, Rona Kong, believes the comments added to her already ostracized feeling of her ethnicity.

“For him, saying that almost scares me to say I’m Chinese.” Kong said.

“I am also ashamed of this province in a way.”

The Prime Minister’s press secretary told Global News on Saturday that Kenney apologized in an interview on December 24.

“I want to say that by the way, if anyone took offense, I apologize to them,” Kenney’s email transcript of the apology said. “If they were offended, certainly none was planned.

“I’m sorry if people took offense at what I said, it wasn’t my intention. And I certainly want to thank the Chinese-Canadian community in Alberta for the tremendous care they have shown in being responsible during COVID. “

Alberta NDP Leader Rachel Notley and other caucus members have asked Kenney to respond further to the comments.

“I think it is extremely important for this government to make this declaration and to make it clear that the people of Alberta come from different backgrounds, cultures and talents and that they all have their place here”, said Alberta NDP MP Irfan Sabir.

Wu believes that the premier has failed in his duties as head of the province.

Uttarakhand police summoned two people named in the first briefing report filed in connection with the provocative speeches against Muslims at a religious conclave in Haridwar town for questioning on Tuesday, the Hindustan Times reported.

Last week, several videos were released of members of the Hindutva group and seers calling for violence against Muslims during a “dharam sansad”, or a religious parliament, which was held in Haridwar between the 17th and the 17th. December 19. Speakers at the event called on Hindus to buy weapons for genocide against Muslims.

After their comments sparked outrage, police filed an FIR on December 23 against former Waqf Shiite board chief Jitendra Narayan Tyagi. He had changed his name from Wasim Rizvi after converting to Hinduism on December 6.

Two days later, police added the names of Sadhvi Annapurna, also known as Pooja Shakun Pandey, and priest Dharamdas Maharaj, to the FIR.

Tyagi and Annapurna received a notice under section 41 (a) of the Code of Criminal Procedure, directing them to report to Haridwar Kotwali police station by January 4 to record their statements, according to the Hindustan Times.

Rakendra Kathait, a police officer at the police station, said: “Both have received the notices. “

Meanwhile, Tyagi filed a lawsuit alleging “a death threat from Muslim fundamentalists” since converting to Hinduism. “The police check the complaint before taking any further action,” Kathait said.

The officer added that the police could not give notice to Maharaj because he was not present at his home in Haridwar. “We are trying to locate him,” Kathait said.

During the event in Haridwar, Annapurna Sadhvi the Hindutva leaders repeated calling for genocide: “If you want to end their population, then we are ready to kill them”, we can hear him say in a video. “Even if 100 of us are willing to kill 20 lakh, then we will be victorious.”

Later, she even told NDTV that the Constitution was wrong. “Indians should pray to Nathuram Godse,” she added.

The other accused, Dharamdas Maharaj, called for the assassination of former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh “by following in the footsteps of Nathuram Godse [Gandhi’s assassin]”. He made the comments in reference to Singh’s 2006 statement to Parliament, saying minorities must have the first claim on the country’s resources.

No arrests have been made in this case so far, although opposition leaders, Supreme Court lawyers, Muslim organizations and prominent citizens have questioned the government’s inaction.

Peter Dinklage comes to the defense of the Game of Thrones finale, and while he’s largely right, he’s wrong about a few things.

Game of thrones has had its fair share of backlash for the controversial series finale, so there isn’t really a definitive answer as to whether the fantasy series ending is considered good or bad. While these opinions are subjective, Tyrion Lannister actor Peter Dinklage seems to believe the final hate is unwarranted, but there are a few things that he might have got wrong with that statement.

The series finale, “The Iron Throne”, was eagerly awaited by fans and critics alike. Even though the eighth season gradually received critical comments for its unusual narrative pace and shocking character regression, more than 19 million viewers tuned in to see where all of their favorite characters would end up. Much like the previous episode, “The Bells,” which featured Daenerys’ turn as Mad Queen, “The Iron Throne” drew polarized responses criticizing how well some of the character arcs ended. Well, two years after the show ended, Peter Dinklage is speaking out on the finale and his criticism from the fans.

Game-of-Thrones-finale

In an interview with the New York Times, Dinklage acknowledges the hateful comments but actively dismisses their desire for a happy ending, saying, “”Game of thrones‘told us it wasn’t this show from the start. He further commented that if fans wanted “pretty white people to go out together at sunset,” the show was successful because it turned their expectations down by setting Daenerys town on fire. King’s Landing and Jon betray her by killing her. There was also a conversation about the big question of the finale: who would be on the throne? the throne, because the spectacle has become much more than that.


Dinklage made a few fair points with regard to the criticism. The show managed to subvert expectations, as most people believed that if Daenerys were to go mad, it would have been done much earlier, possibly in Season 7, to fully flesh out her arc. The Burning of King’s Landing was a surprising move for her character who firmly believed that the town’s poor were forced to live under Cersei’s rule. When the word “dracarys” slipped from her mouth, she rejected all her beliefs and let her hereditary madness take hold of her. As for her relationship with Jon, when it was revealed that they were related by blood, it was immediately doomed to failure. Even though there is an excessive amount of incest on the show, it still shows that the people in the relationship are inherently bad or misguided by their own mistakes.

Game of Thrones Finals

Even though those moments from the finale are at the top of the pro roster, there is a lot that Dinklage still ignores like what pushed the show into the ground. Daenerys’ arc in Mad Queen looks fantastic on paper, but the writers decided to skip character development in between and went straight to the end result which made her arc look incredibly out of place. Daenerys may have had blood on her hands before, but that was because she had the best intentions for those who suffered at the hands of those who abused their power. The final season in general seemed to have lost its rhythm as the number of episodes was reduced to six episodes instead of the usual 10 (although the seventh season had seven).


And while fans expected Daenerys or Jon to take the throne in their rightful name, it was ultimately Bran who was elected by Tyrion Lannister. Considering that Bran said earlier in the season that he “couldn’t be the lord of anything” due to his status as a Three-Eyed Raven, he was extremely happy to succeed the throne, which meant he would be in. made a king. Her development, like that of Daenerys, made a total of 180 of her personality and beliefs that contradict previous actions and statements.

The only main characters who got an ending that aptly matches their character seem to be the rest of the Starks. Sansa, as Queen of the North, has finally done her character justice for her unfortunate journey, and Arya bound for the West satisfies the curiosity within her. And even though Jon is banned from Beyond the Wall, he does what he does best, which is to help and protect others. But Dinklage’s comments raise a much more complex question: Was the finale criticized for its narrative, or just because fans didn’t like where the characters ended up? So argued on behalf of Dinklage, it’s because not everyone had a happy ending, that doesn’t mean it wasn’t a great story. On the flip side, a well-paced narrative is hard to pull off for the end of a popular show, and high expectations certainly didn’t make it easy for the writers.

Complaints to Ofcom have risen 124% this year, in part because of Piers Morgan’s comments about the Duchess of Sussex on Good Morning Britain.

The March show was the most criticized TV episode of 2021, prompting 54,595 complaints to the media watchdog.

Morgan has said he doesn’t believe Meghan’s claims about her mental health, made during her interview with Oprah Winfrey. After clashing with a co-host, Morgan left the program for good.

Responding to the Twitter announcement, he said: “Delighted to have perpetrated the most criticized moment on UK television for 2021 … especially because every one of the absurd complaints has been dismissed.”

(PA Graphics) / PA Graphics

It was a banner year for complaints, with more than 150,000 filed with Ofcom. The total figure did not include complaints about the BBC, which are dealt with primarily by the company.

Adam Baxter, Director of Standards and Public Protection at Ofcom, said: “Interestingly, it’s a relatively small number of TV shows that get the lion’s share; the five most criticized programs account for 80% of all complaints.

“Social media – a digital home for modern conversations about water coolers – is also having its influence on complaint numbers.

“But to me these volumes demonstrate the British public’s interest and passion for television and radio programs, and how important they are to the cultural fabric of our nation.”

ITV’s Love Island was in second place thanks to an August episode, in which contestant Faye Winter delivered a long burst of profanity at partner Teddy Soares, sparking 24,921 complaints.

The couple had an explosive argument after the islanders played a clip of Soares telling another contestant, Clarisse Juliette, who had since been eliminated, that he was attracted to her.

She told The Sun that she “went through a very long phase of self-loathing” and that she “would look in the mirror and think I was absolutely disgusting.”

Belle said: “It started around the age of 13 and continued until I was 19. I felt worthless and had all this anger that I had to let go.”

“It was also about punishment because I hated myself so much. I hated myself for not being what I wanted to be, and self-harm became my way of expressing this pain.

Belle hid her self-harm by wearing clothes that covered her scars, keeping the trauma from her father and the rest of her family so they wouldn’t question her about it.

The ex-Love Islander believes the ordeal was triggered by a specific boy.

“He was lovely at first, but when I parted ways with him he got really horrible and it affected my life terribly,” she continued. “He had to be taken out of all my lessons because he was constantly abusing me, shouting things like ‘You f ** king sl * g’ and calling me ugly.

“When someone tells you that over and over again at such a young age, you start to believe it. My opinion of myself started to change.
