If the French government are stupid and corrupt enough to be afraid of conspiracies then it is because they have a lot of GUILT.
If they go through with this, then I hope the citizens en-mass, get out all the old Guillotines from those old days and show their government that they are not going to be allowed to make themselves immune from their own crimes.

A large majority of people are gullible and reactive. (just look at how many swallowed this claim here without a blink of an eye).

Like I said, I don't think any legislation will happen, and if it would in the future, it would be enforced only in relation to the specific problems they have with the islamic radicalisation and anti-semitism. Your theories about aliens and 911 are safe.

But the concern the people have here is understandable- we can get all preachy about freedom of speech, and those radical jihadists have the right to try to indoctrinate trouble youth to commit terrorism all they want- it's just words. Words don't hurt anyone.

But the people here can't see it that way as easily. People are dying here. Jewish school kids were shot at random in front of their school- they were not part of any NWO, or Illuminati!

The past is entwined, yes. Hitler convinced a lot of people to carry out a huge genocide attempt- with words. With a conspiracy theory. The powerful didn't die, just the powerless masses.

Nobody is controlled at french airports, we don't take off our shoes, get Xrayed, our have our bags searched. The last time I went through, I got to the window where I needed to show my passport, and the guy inside the booth was sleeping. Literally. I kid you not. I stared at him for a while, then put my passport away and walked on.
The ones who have committed these terrorist acts over here were known by the authorities to have travelled to the middle east for training and had regular contacts with radical islamist groups. The whole damn concern about their rights and freedoms is what allowed them to kill.

There is no huge overblown restriction going on here. There are words which are spoken and debated and thrown this way and that, but the only ones that are actually having any impact on what happens is that of the radical islamists, who are being allowed to infiltrate, indoctrinate, and move with full freedom.

I would say conspiracies are more like "myths" where rational belief and proof aren't necessary much of the time a reply to: Kester

Right on every count.

They used to profile here in the USA based on those criteria like people having a certain look. Someone from an East Indian country. Now they escort those types on the planes so they don't have to go through security while the rest of us must remove our shoes and be x-rayed.

Conspiracy theories arise when the "official" government version of what happened has more holes in it than swiss cheese.

If conspiracy theories can not be discussed in an open and frank manner and that includes the jewish haulacast then what hope does humanity have. A lot of people are not as stupid as the elite imagine them to be and can see the plausibility or not in a lot of conspiracies. although i do not believe that everything can be discussed openly on this site a great deal can be and a lot of the fors and againsts of particular conspiracies can be debated which nearly always gets closer to the truth than not being able to discuss these theories at all. What have those that seek to ban free speech particuly wear their is significant debate such as this site have to hide. Any targeting of peaceful citizens wheather jewish, muslum, christians, any other peaceful religious group or a particular race etc is discusting and should be covered by discrimination laws and punished harshly wear violence is involved.

The desperation of the ruling elites is showing.
Their grip over society is slipping and the more it slips the harder they will beat down any opposition to it.
Just think of them as 3 year olds having a tantrum.
3 year olds that have the power to bring the law down on you.

Who are the "conspiracy theorists"?

The Jean-Jaurès Foundation describes them as follows:

"[It’s] a heterogeneous movement, heavily entangled with the Holocaust denial movement, and which combines admirers of Hugo Chavez and fans of Vladimir Putin. An underworld that consist of former left-wing activists or extreme leftists, former "malcontents", sovereignists, revolutionary nationalists, ultra-nationalists, nostalgists of the Third Reich, anti-vaccination activists, supporters of drawing straws, September 11th revisionists, anti-Zionists, Afrocentricists, survivalists, followers of "alternative medicine", agents of influence of the Iranian regime, Bacharists, Catholic or Islamic fundamentalists "


this must mean Moon Hoax Theory has gained credibility & will still be allowed in the totalitarian society ....


woooow...it makes me warm and fuzzy inside knowing i've been put in the same basket as Islamic fundamentalists...not to mention...that "survivalist" is now a bad word obviously.

Well..that's it than...close down ATS...it's gonna be illegal soon.

France Moves to Make ‘Conspiracy Theories’ Illegal by Government Decree



Nothing in the article indicates such, the thread title is a complete lie to bait for easy stars. The article says Hollande would like to ask the EU for the possibility to ask sanctions against "antisemite conspiracy theories" on social media. This is following the attacks on Charlie hebdo that fueled rumors on the net (propagated even on ATS) that the attack was a false flag attack from zionists. Rumors that lead to hate speech, call to attacks on Jews, and actual attacks on Jews. All because of a stupid rumor that even people on ATS propagated without realizing people got hurt because of that.

Maybe "conspiracy theorists" should learn to use their critical mind and to actually read the sources they quote.



Also Thierry Meyssan is notorious for making big money with his own conspiracy theories, no wonder he's starting yet another one. He now lives in Damas and receives money from authoritative regimes to fund his network of writers who are asked to spread any rumors that could undermine the credibility of western governments.


Nothing is black or white in this business, if you call yourself a true searcher of truth you have to question the source of info too, and see who does this info profit to.


a reply to: Bluesma


Words of reason. As usual people on ATS get all emotional over dramatic titles but are to lazy to dig the subject themselves.

This is another classic example of European Socialism. The rights of the state trump the rights of the individual. Please don't let the moronic European laws come to the US. We already had to fight one war for independence.


It's true that something like Patriot Act can only happen in socialist/communist Europe where everyone is controlled by the police and the NSA is spying people communication.

Ahahahah ooooh the irony!

lmao!

The French were actually the first ones to cry BS on 911 here in the USA.

I can't wait to see how this madness transpires.

September 11th revisionists


This is a surprise coming out of Europe, and if it takes hold and other countries start adopting this, then really we have entered the dark ages again.

And then ATS days will be numbered

In the Rhône wine region in southeastern France it is illegal for UFO's to fly over/land in vinegaurds:

The producers of Châteauneuf-du-Pape have historically been known to be fiercely protective of their vineyard properties which is said to have led to the 1954 passing of a municipal decree in the village of Châteauneuf-du-Pape that banned the overhead flying, landing or taking off of flying saucers in the commune. As of 2007, this law has yet to be repealed.

And now if you're in france you cant even dispute the existence of UFO's? SACRÉ BLUE!!!

Conspiracy theories are not and will not be illegal in France.

Anyone believing so stopped reading at the thread title and did not dig and investigate what is actually quoted in the article, who wrote it and where.

So... basically, France is enacting a tyrannical law making it illegal, to... talk about the government being tyrannical. Or in other words, they are making it illegal to point out the obvious.

I see France has De-evolutionized their logic.
