(THE NEW AMERICAN) – It was back in 2013 that the Supreme Court of Canada stated, astoundingly, that the Truth was not a defense against “hate crime” charges. Now this philosophy may be manifesting itself in Spain, where a populist political party daring to claim that migrants get more government money than retirees is being investigated for “incitement to hatred.”
As Breitbart reports, “Spanish populist party VOX is being investigated over a campaign poster that compares monthly spending on migrant minors to monthly spending on Spanish pensioners.”
“The poster, which was launched ahead of the May 4th elections in Madrid, claims ‘A [migrant minor], €4,700 [£4,080/$5,670] per month, your grandmother, a €426 [£370/$514] pension per month’ and shows a picture of an elderly woman and a young man with his face covered by a scarf and wearing a hoodie,” the site continued.
