Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
what are "quote mines"?

my problem with this article is that it is portraying this legislation as something entirely new and unwarranted, when in fact, it's been around for at least a decade and used almost exclusively against Holocaust deniers.

not that there is anything wrong with that, but they haven't prosecuted people that promoted hatred against immigrants, native people, or in the most famous case, Don Cherry, the man who hates anyone who isn't English Canadian.

now that the shoe is on the other foot, and the "brown" people are trying to  use this law, the same people who complained against Holocaust deniers are now stating that the law is obsolete, or other such stuff

moving the goalposts I think it's called, and by not researching it, the BBC is pushing this agenda forward
