has tipped over in twitter followers.

The Streisand effect is a phenomenon whereby an attempt to hide, remove or censor a piece of information has the unintended consequence of publicizing the information more widely, usually facilitated by the internet. It is an example of psychological reactance, wherein once people are aware that some information is being kept from them, their motivation to access and spread it is increased.[1]

It is named after American entertainer Barbra Streisand, whose 2003 attempt to suppress photographs of her residence in Malibu, California inadvertently drew further public attention to it. Similar attempts have been made, for example, in cease-and-desist letters to suppress files, websites, and even numbers. Instead of being suppressed, the information receives extensive publicity and media extensions such as videos and spoof songs, often being widely mirrored on the Internet or distributed on file-sharing networks.[2][3]

Sara and Hanan:
«We wait in the garden. We wait like the gravel waits, like the wood pigeon and the blackbird and the ice and the clear water. We wait, like a two-headed gnome: dirty, coarse, unreliable. Sometimes we look through your bedroom windows: you pig-faced evil bedbugs who feast upon the root systems of hope. Slowly the heart stops running. We light black lanterns. The horror loses its grip. Europe disappears. Then we turn toward paradises lost for you and your kin.»

Hanan B leaves France. It is 2012, the same year that the National Front does its most successful election ever. Jean-Marie Le Pen had been an intelligence officer and torturer in the French colonial war in Algerie, where Hanan’s father, Halim, fought on the side of the revolution. Now, after years of determined political work, Jean-Marie Le Pen and his daughter Marine Le Pen, has managed to convince the French public that the colonial “war of civilization” has moved on to European soil. That we have to prevent a Muslim takeover of France will now be understood as the most important political undertaking. France adopts emergency laws and imposes rigorous monitoring of the Muslim population, and in the years to come the National Front becomes one of the strongest driving forces of the extreme right-wing movement as it spreads across Europe.

Hanan moves to Norway, just to realize that Le Pen’s agenda has hit deep roots there too. In Oslo, she meets Sara B, who fled from Saddam Hussein’s US-backed war against the Kurds in the ’80s, and who knows a lot about the connections between surveillance, racism, and horror. Together with former Supreme Court judge Ketil Lund and a deeply beloved ghost, they embark on a journey through the root systems of power. At the same time, NATO is planning that their largest military exercise ever is to be carried out on Norwegian soil.

In order to maintain a tolerant society, the society must be intolerant of intolerance.
Philosopher Karl Popper defined the paradox in 1945 in The Open Society and Its Enemies

 

Tolerance and freedom of speech

The paradox of tolerance is important in the discussion of what, if any, boundaries are to be set on freedom of speech. Popper asserted that to allow freedom of speech to those who would use it to eliminate the very principle upon which they rely is paradoxical. Rosenfeld states, “it seems contradictory to extend freedom of speech to extremists who… if successful, ruthlessly suppress the speech of those with whom they disagree,” and points out that the Western European democracies and the United States have opposite approaches to the question of tolerance of hate speech.[7] In some countries, including the United States, hate speech is constitutionally protected.[7][8][9]

This explains why no ones stopping felony President Trump from spreading his Hate Speeches:

 

Although Norway is not a member of the EU, do we want to take on American Conditions on this matter?
In his campaign Trump showed Americans his true self, no one should be surprised of what they got if he was elected.

 

Everyone must endure being provoked and harassed, whether for religious or political reasons.
Erna Solberg, 07.01.2015 shortly after the Paris attach when everyone went around beeing “Charlie”

 

But that was then, as we say in Norway.

This is the line of Ministers of Justice Erna Solberg’s Government have had in its 6,5 years of governing.

Let Me Take A #Selfie: Two former Justice Ministers enjoying themselves before terror hearing

Sylvi Listhaug (born 25 December 1977) is a Norwegian politician for the Progress Party. Listhaug served as Norway’s first Minister of Immigration and Integration from 2015 to 2018, a specially created cabinet position during the European migrant crisis, and Minister of Agriculture and Food from 2013 to 2015. She served as Minister of Justice, Public Security, and Immigration from January 2018 until her resignation in March 2018.

In a Facebook post, Norway’s controversial justice minister Sylvi Listhaug, a member of the populist and anti-immigration Progress Party (Fremskrittspartiet, FrP), had accused the opposition Labour Party of considering “the rights of terrorists (to be) more important than the security of the nation”. Listhaug, whose party is a member of a centre-right coalition, was angry at Labour’s rejection of a proposal to strip jihadists of their Norwegian citizenship without a court decision. The post, which contained a photo showing threatening Al-Shabab militants, sparked outrage because Labour members had been targeted in 2011 in the worst attack on Norwegian soil since the end of the Second World War.

 

On July 22nd that year, right-wing extremist Anders Breivik, who once was a member of the Progress Party, killed 77 people in twin attacks: one targeting then-Labour prime minister Jens Stoltenberg’s office in Oslo and another against a Labour youth camp on the island of Utøya.

Hours after Listhaug withdrew her post, Prime Minister Erna Solberg issued an apology on behalf of her government after coming under fire for not voicing unequivocal disapproval of her minister.

“On behalf of the government … I wish to present my apologies because the rhetoric used by the government hurt people,” Solberg, a conservative, told reporters.

“Norway has a special link with terrorism since July 22nd (2011). That means we have to pay special attention in discussions on terrorism because we have people in society who have experienced it in the most appalling manner,” Solberg said. But the PM took six days to issue an apology on behalf of her government, having previously avoided commenting before then saying that the justice minister’s post had “crossed a line.” Listhaug’s message coincided with the release of the first film in Norway devoted to the 2011 atrocities. Labour leader Jonas Gahr Støre accused the minister of stoking “the hatred that led to the July 22nd (massacre)”. She finally withdrew the controversial post, arguing that rights issues prohibited the use of the Al-Shabab photo for political purposes.

Per Sandberg (born 6 February 1960) is a Norwegian politician for the Progress Party who served as the Norwegian Minister of Fisheries from December 2015 to August 2018. On 20 March 2018 Sandberg was appointed as acting Minister of Justice, Public Security and Immigration in Solberg’s Cabinet after Sylvi Listhaug resigned[17].

Norway’s rightwing fisheries minister and acting justice minister has resigned after breaching security protocol when he went on holiday to Iran with an Iranian-born former beauty queen. Per Sandberg, 58, the deputy head of the anti-immigration Progress party, which is part of the ruling coalition, admitted he had traveled to Iran in July with his new girlfriend Bahareh Letnes, 28, without informing the prime minister’s office in advance. He also admitted taking his work phone with him. Norway’s intelligence agency regularly lists Iran as one of the countries most likely to carry out espionage, alongside China and Russia.

“Per himself asked to step down and I think it was the right decision,” said the Conservative prime minister, Erna Solberg. “He didn’t show the necessary common sense when it comes to handling security issues.”

Letnes’s asylum request was rejected three times in Norway and she was expelled, but she eventually obtained a residency permit on the grounds that she risked being subjected to a forced marriage in Iran. The Progress party favors a strict immigration policy, calling for asylum seekers whose applications are rejected to be expelled swiftly. It is also highly critical of foreigners who return to their native country after receiving asylum in Norway.

As of today, it has not been possible to find a quote from Prime minister Erna Solberg as of why (Vy) the Progress Party should have the Minister of Justice when all their 5 prior candidates have had to leave the office.
