This is absolutely critical!
What could the highest courts of justice in freedom-loving democracies be thinking they are doing? If you bottle-up your people into a silence that the Nazis DID do, what are you installing into your nation?
Angela Merkel, the EU, and frightened government elected officials are not helping ANYONE, including the asylum-seeking refugees! The reason the asylum seekers are arriving into democracies in the first place, is the need to be rescued from an authoritarian debacle(Syria) where their lives mattered not a bit to the ruling government. They left in desperation, only to cause the "diseased state" they originally tried to stand-up to, to become a function of what is supposed to be "protecting" them in their new "asylum state"? I would be saying "no thank you, please don't hamper your own citizen's freedom of expression on MY account!
This has got to be one of the biggest miscalculations any government could make even though it is calculated to keep order.
