This is Islam. This is sharia. And it’s coming to the West. Facebook, Twitter, Google, YouTube are all falling into line with sharia and deleting material that is “insulting” to Islam. When jihadis attacked our free speech event in Texas, the enemedia acted as if we were the villains. Free speech is our foremost protection against tyranny, and we are losing it.
“Iran sentences a 21-year-old man to DEATH for ‘insulting Islam’ on an instant messaging app after confessing when police promised he would be pardoned if he came clean,” by Kelly Mclaughlin, Mailonline, March 30, 2017 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

Human rights activists claim that Dehghan was fooled into singing his own confession under the belief that he would be released without punishment if he did so.

The content of Dehghan’s messages is unknown.
The source said that authorities got Dehghan to confess on camera as well, and that authorities told his family that if they kept quiet about the charges, Dehghan would be more likely to be freed.
‘Unfortunately, the family believed those words and stopped sharing information about his case and discouraged others from sharing it as well,’ the source said.
Branch 1 of the Criminal Court in Arak had asked that Dehghan be sentenced to death for ‘insulting the prophet’ as well as 16 months in prison for ‘insulting the supreme leader’….
