An op-ed of mine published on May 3 2016 in the Norwegian liberal-conservative newspaper Aftenposten concerning Progress Party Minister of Immigration and Integration Mrs Sylvi Listhaug’s faulty understanding of Norwegian and international laws on hate speech, and the principles it requires to uphold laws anchored in notions of equality of rights and obligations in a liberal and secular democracy. The op-ed is written in response to Listhaug’s pledge to revisit existing Norwegian laws in order to clamp down on Salafi Muslim ‘hate preachers’ invited to Norway.
