It’s paywalled so I can’t read the details.Here's classic left-wing extremism in action. Difference to most right-wing extremism is that it is actually by those in Government. Scary.

Hate crime bill: Hate talk in homes ‘must be prosecuted’
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.
OP still valid.Oath Keepers militia leader Stewart Rhodes said members of his militia will be at polling locations on Election Day to “protect” Trump voters during an appearance on far-right conspiracy theorist Alex Jones’ program.
After making that claim, Rhodes made a number of unhinged statements, including saying Oath Keepers would follow directives from President Donald Trump to take members of the “deep state” into custody and “do what we have to do,” that Trump should invoke the Insurrection Act before the election, that Oath Keepers will “be in range” of Washington D.C., to stop a “Benghazi-style” attack on the White House on election night, and that a war will have to be fought against Democrats on the West Coast who are “bought” by the Chinese government. Rhodes also hyped the possibility of a second civil war where his “battle-hardened” supporters kill the “street soldiers” and “command and control” of “the radical left.” He later claimed the United States is already in a civil war because “you have sitting politicians who are part of the enemy’s ranks.”
Comprehension failure on your part. The amendment was to limit the categories that "stirring up" offences could be applied to but didn't change that it could still be applied for speech in your own home.Because of this, Mr Yousaf was forced to amend the legislation and change the controversial "stirring up" offences section which has been condemned by opponents.
It now means "stirring up offences" would be limited to “intent” relating to age, disability, religion, sexual orientation, transgender identity and variations in sex characteristics and therefore prosecutions could only be brought in this respect.
- So it never happened, the democratic process stopped it from happening. Prosecution in the home wasn’t even a specific part of the bill.
During today’s session, Glasgow Tory MSP and Committee Convenor Adam Tomkins questioned the Scottish Justice Secretary on how you can commit an offence of public order in private.
It comes after Mr Yousaf suggested during the committee session that he would be in favour of the stirring up offences applying inside home dwellings.
THE SNP's new hate crime bill could criminalise free speech in people's own homes, MSPs have been told.www.google.com.au
Take a step back and read up on these thing before falling for click bait.
Hahahahaha, weakest reasoning ever - "democratic process stopped it from happening". WHY was it happening in the first place? Left wing extremism, that's why.- So it never happened, the democratic process stopped it from happening. Prosecution in the home wasn’t even a specific part of the bill.
Pfft not clickbait at all. It was an article in The Times. And it's all Scotland has been talking about in the last 24 hrs.Take a step back and read up on these thing before falling for click bait.
I see - it’s still about inciting people to hatred -> violence.Comprehension failure on your part. The amendment was to limit the categories that "stirring up" offences could be applied to but didn't change that it could still be applied for speech in your own home.
There's no mention of violence in the bill.I see - it’s still about inciting people to hatred -> violence.
Not if you’re having one of your regular nights where you bark at the wife and kids about how the Sudanese gangs are taking over the city.
It’s not even what is happening FFS.I think raging left-wingers prosecuting dinner time conversations in the home makes my mind up for me pretty simply, yes.
What, you're left with some doubt as to whether this is sane and normal??
Sorry the difference here is this is being done by a government usually described as "centre left/ progressive" especially on social issues etc. Now cf a government of a right-wing persuasion legislating in this way. It would definitely be described as "far-right". So how about we apply the same standards here and describe the SNP as a "far-left extremist" government?It’s not even what is happening FFS.
I mean. Just take a look at yourself you shrill idiot.
On top of that you’re pretending that “teh eeeevil leeeft” are the only people who could EVER legislate against people’s freedoms.
This is a bill being debated as per the democratic process.
Don’t get hooked in by the panic-merchants.
