The new Spanish Inquisition

Zerohedge reports on some new Spanish laws:

1. If you photograph security personnel and then share these images on social media: up to €30.000 fine (particularly if photo exposes violence used against a member of the public). This fine could increase depending on the number of Instagram or social media followers you have.
2. Tweet or retweet information or the “location of an organized protest” can now be interpreted as an act of terrorism as it incites others to “commit a crime” (now that “demonstrating” in many ways has become a crime). Sound “1984”-ish? Read about Orwell and his time in Spain.
3. Snowden-like whistle blowing is now defined as an act of terrorism. If you write for a local publication, be careful what you print, whom you speak to, and whether the government is listening.
4. Visiting or consulting terrorist websites – even for investigative purposes – can be interpreted as an act of terrorism. Make sure you use “Tor” browser, reject cookies, and don’t allow pop-ups. Not to mention, don’t post it on your Facebook timeline!
5. Be careful with the royal jokes! Any satirical comment against the royal family is a new crime “against the Crown”. For example, “What did Leticia and the Bishop have to say after they ––“ (SORRY CENSORED).
6. No more hassling elected members of the government or local authorities – even if they say one thing in order to be elected, but then go and do the exact opposite. Confronting them about this hypocritical behavior. Even if you see them in the street chatting to a street cleaner, dining at their favorite expensive restaurant, or having their shoes shined by that physics graduate who cannot find a decent job in the country, hassling them about their behavior is now a criminal offence.
7. Has your local river been so polluted by that plastic factory along the edge that all life has extinguished? Well, tough! Greenpeace or similar protests are now finable from €601–€30.000.
8. Protests in a spontaneous way outside Parliament are now illegal. For example if Parliament passes a hugely unpopular bill, or are debating something extremely important to you or your community, it is now finable from €601 – €30.000. Tip: Use Google Maps to protest just around the corner – but don’t tweet the location!
9. Obstructing an officer in the course of their business, “resisting arrest”, refusing to leave a demonstration when told, or getting in the way of a swinging baton are all now finable offences from €601 – €30.000.
10. Showing lack of respect to officers of the law is an immediate fine of €100 – €600. Answering back, asking a disrespectful question, making a funny face, showing your bottom to an officer of the law, or telling him/her that their breath reminds you of your dog’s underparts is now, sadly, not advisable.
11. Occupying, squatting, or refusing to leave an office, business, bank or other place until your complaint has been heard as a protest is now a €100 – €600 fine (no more flash mobs).
12. Digital protests: Writing something that could technically “disturb the peace” is a now a crime. Bloggers beware, for no one has yet defined whose peace you could be disturbing.
Looks like the USA doesn't have the only government that is actively preparing to face widespread civil unrest. I wonder why that might be?

I'm relatively authoritarian so I find this far more interesting in that it shows that Spain fears massive civil unrest on a scale unseen since the Franco era.

No, you don't get it. It's the Republicans (who were, after all, mostly Communists) finally consolidating their ultimate victory. Both sides were agreed on basic principles; the argument was only about who held the power.

It was his time in Spain that opened Orwell's eyes, finally resulting in Nineteen Eighty-four and Animal Farm.

Canada is entering into a recession, and is in the midst of a huge housing bubble.

Easy solution: import more immigrants and move them into the empty houses! Charge native tax payers - sure they lose out in the short term but it's a long term win when the housing market returns and there's now a demand for construction!

It's legal usury. First you are arrested for tweeting where the bake sale will take place, then they strip search you and add MORE charges because you showed a police officer your butt, and it probably goes downhill from there because you tell the judge "This is unfair, your honor". Winning!

Soooooo glad I studied in Spain when I did. Regarding law #1, I took a photo of a Guardia Civil outside of his post one day while waiting for Mass to start at a parish that overlooked among other things, his out post. He never saw me and I don't know if it was illegal. I also took a photo of Canal Isabel II water tower when I went to tour it...a worker warned me I could get in trouble for taking said photo (I was an ignorant exchange student)....yeah, still got that photo too heh heh.

With regards to the Greenpeace protest fines, will that include the jackass trash workers that go on strike and proceed to throw torn up newspaper that covers the entire floor of your facultad? If that's the case, then I actually support said law.

Now, how about some music given that we're talking about Spain?

It seems that when you abandon God, you also tend to exercise Inquisitions in a much more half-hearted manner.

Laws like this inspire more civil resistance to government, not less. They will occasionally be used to make an example of someone accompanied by great fanfare from the media, radicalizing dozens for every one who is punished.

If I were going to round up all of us, I would wait a couple of more years, pass some really draconian hate speech laws, make them retroactive and give them a 25 year statute of limitations...

Then round all of you up, charge you with a crime, remand you to prison and psychological counseling, mandate medication and forced administration... seize your assets, and destroy your family.

The evidence to convict will take about five minutes to collect for presentation by the prosecution.

Seat a jury of lesbians, gays, trans, losers, illegals, etc. and watch you squirm.

I think the biggest problem is that we are entertaining ourselves to death. A majority of Americans simply don't care about anything. They care about their next shows, what they will have for dinner, who they will have sex with, etc. They don't care about ISIS, politics, or anything else because they are lovers of self. How do you fight against that other than the gospel?

Bullshit. Insulting people in general is verboten. They just give you higher fines if it's an official/officer.

Prussians like a police state. I recall being in Frankfurt just before the World Cup back in '06, and a street was cordoned off so that it was a pedestrian only area. All the Germans still stopped at the crosswalk and waited for the signal to go. I did not. I got across and looked back at a crowd of scowling Germans.

For the Germans, it's just who they are - got nothing in and of itself to do with a current lack of Christendom.

You know it is immoral for the family of someone who has died to receive compensation for body parts. It is unethical and just plain wrong.

But it is OK for the hospital to make $500K off your organs, if you are so kind as to donate them. As that is kind, caring and compassionate.

And if this person who donated their organs owes the hospital $7,400 after their death, the family better pay the remaining balance on their bill or the hospital will sue the family for the money, because that is moral and the deadbeat family is trying to skate their bill.

And if you state publically the life of the unborn is precious, you are a monster. But if the abortionist can turn a quick buck selling the skin to South Korean supplement manufacturers for inclusion in a pill for people to take to get an erection, that is loving and compassionate.

Blogger Doc Rampage July 14, 2015 8:28 PM  

Maybe it's actually good for liberty to have laws that give small fines for disrespecting cops--not to protect the cops but to protect the citizens who are disrespecting them. Picture the following, you are upset at an officer of the law and so you conversationally observe that when you f****d his wife last night you were a bit taken aback to find out that she was bald. Now there are several possible ways that said officer of the law might respond:

(1) Please sir, let's try to keep this civil.
(2) Sir, I'm going to write you a ticket for that and I warn you that further offenses will get you more tickets.
(3) Please turn around and put your hands behind your back. You are under arrest for possession of crack cocaine. You are asking me what crack cocaine? Don't worry, by the time I get to the station I'll have a baggy to put in evidence.
(4) That's not funny. You know what's funny? (beats you half to death with his nightstick) Now that's funny.

OK, which response would you prefer? Well, (1) of course, but you can't really expect that response all the time. So which of the *other* responses would you prefer. I'll go with (2).
