from Guido Fawkes order order blog
Julie Burchill’s publisher has agreed to pay her in full and relinquished all rights to her manuscript, following an intervention by the Free Speech Union. Last week, Little, Brown announced it would not be publishing Burchill’s book, Welcome to the Woke Trials, after she got into a Twitter spat with literal communist Ash Sarkar. The hard left pundit had attacked Rod Liddle for making light of child rape, having dug up an eight-year-old Spectator article in which he said he had avoided becoming a teacher because he couldn’t trust himself not to try and have sex with his teenage pupils. Burchill told her that was a little rich coming from a Muslim, given that Mohammad’s wife Aisha was a child when he married her. “I don’t WORSHIP a paedophile,” she said. “Lecturer, lecture thyself!” Little, Brown promptly cancelled the book.
As Brendan O’Neill commented: “Julie Burchill was hired for being Julie Burchill – and then Julie Burchill was fired for being Julie Burchill.” Guido doesn’t like to criticise other people’s faiths, however it should not be an offence to be blasphemous…
Luckily for her, Burchill is a member of the Free Speech Union and reached out for help. Following an intervention by the FSU’s legal team, Little, Brown has now agreed to pay Julie’s advance in full and returned all the rights in the book to her so she can take it elsewhere. According to her agent Matthew Hamilton, several publishers have contacted him expressing an interest in the book.
Toby Young, FSU General Secretary, says: “For a publisher to cancel a book on cancel culture because a self-proclaimed communist has denounced the author is completely unacceptable. This is Great Britain, not Stalin’s Russia. I’m glad we were able to help.” Julie is unrepentant. “I’ve been upsetting bourgeoise bed-wetters since I was 17 – now I’m 61 and nothing has changed. Last time I checked, that wasn’t against the law. I am indebted to the Free Speech Union for stepping in to protect my rights.” They would have got away with if it weren’t for that pesky Free Speech Union…

The Self Righteous Minority That Threaten Free Speech
Until recently Universities were places where any ideas were welcome and any economic, social, or scientific theory, no matter how extreme would be given a fair hearing and debated openly. So where did it all start to go wrong? How did the idea that there is only one set of acceptable answers to society’s problems (the ‘pensée unique’ to use a French phrase I am fond of, redolent of The Borg in Star Trek and much more demeaning than “Social Justice Warriors”) and that those who challenge the orthodoxy should be silenced and prevented from broadcasting their ideas in print or verbally.

The Imporantance Of Free Speech And The Right To Offend
Our right to free speech is under threat from intolerant, authoritarian left wingers or ‘progressives liberals’ as these illiberal reactonaries like to style themselves. The ‘Politically Correct Thought Police’ as I have somtimes called them in acknowledgement of Geoge Orwell’s novel ‘1984’, are determined that in they egalitarian dystopia they dream of (but that fortunately could never be) nobody will be able to say or do anything that may offend s member of any racial, sexual or social minority. This kind of fascistic tyranny is justified by invoking politically correct ideals, but it is having a deeply damaging effect on human society and could eventually result in civil conflict in the developed nations.

Free Speech being superseded by Sharia Law in Germany?
In Germany, where the open doors immigration policy insisted upon by Chancellor Merkel has flooded the country with Islamic fundamentalists, Christian activist Heidi Mund
was recently charged with “agitation against the people” for speaking our on aspects of Muslim Sharia Law that are unacceptable in western societies (e.g. permitted wife beating, rape, forced marriage.Germany is sliding towards fascism as Hausfrau – Volksfuhrer Merkel outlaws free speech for Christians. All criticism of Islam and discussion of Muslim crimes is hate speech it seems, but the ranting of Islamic hate preachers as they call on Muslims to kill all infidels is acceptable rhetoric.
