Editor of popular newspaper writes migrant article, gets charged with ‘hate speech’

Posted Nov. 3 2016

It’s often easy for us folks in America to get caught up in the numerous issues regarding the First Amendment, but there are attacks on free speech all across the world that often slip under the radar. We tend to take for granted the fact that, in spite of the all too frequent attempts at destroying our right to free speech, we still do have a constitutional right to say and write whatever we please. For the rest of the world, that is not always the case.

Take Christoph Biro for instance. An editor of the Austrian national paper Kronen Zeitung , Biro is currently facing the possibility of hate crime charges for writing a controversial article about the deadly migrant crisis that is plaguing the world today.
