Election rigging by keeping the population misinformed does not arouse a ripple of protests. “The concept of democracy is that of self-government by the people. For such a system to work, an informed electorate is necessary”. 1 The social acceptance of governmental police gag orders is equivalent to the widely unopposed PresseKodex 12.1. Omitting the truth to avoid “prejudice” 2or to avoid exploitation by “the Right” is socially acceptable 3. Lying *by omission*, admittedly aiming at reducing votes for “the Right” and successfully changing the voting outcome4 is a blatant perversion of democracy, alas unopposed and socially acceptable. The consequences are grave and world changing5*6, and thus sincerity.net proposes and enlightened modern society based on true honest sincere information. Gag orders must be vanquished, whistle blowers from police, media, school official and more must be encouraged. [/note]
Police break silence. Asylum seeker’s crimes are covered up upon instructions from above
The interior ministry of the German state “Hesse” confirms the intentional silence. Reason: telling the truth about “the topic “refugee” could be “exploited” by the extreme right. “7
[…]Freedom of speech is understood to be fundamental in a democracy. The norms on limiting freedom of expression mean that public debate may not be completely suppressed even in times of emergency. One of the most notable proponents of the link between freedom of speech and democracy is Alexander Meiklejohn. He has argued that the concept of democracy is that of self-government by the people. For such a system to work, an informed electorate is necessary. In order to be appropriately knowledgeable, there must be no constraints on the free flow of information and ideas. According to Meiklejohn, democracy will not be true to its essential ideal if those in power are able to manipulate the electorate by withholding information and stifling criticism. Meiklejohn acknowledges that the desire to manipulate opinion can stem from the motive of seeking to benefit society. However, he argues, choosing manipulation negates, in its means, the democratic ideal.
Eric Barendt has called this defense of free speech on the grounds of democracy “probably the most attractive and certainly the most fashionable free speech theory in modern Western democracies”. Thomas I. Emerson expanded on this defense when he argued that freedom of speech helps to provide a balance between stability and change. Freedom of speech acts as a “safety valve” to let off steam when people might otherwise be bent on revolution. He argues that “The principle of open discussion is a method of achieving a more adaptable and at the same time more stable community, of maintaining the precarious balance between healthy cleavage and necessary consensus.” Emerson furthermore maintains that “Opposition serves a vital social function in offsetting or ameliorating (the) normal process of bureaucratic decay.”[Source: Democracy and social interaction]
Google Translation from Bild Zeitung, a large German main stream newspaper with Millions of readers. There is plenty of evidence of “minority” crimes covered up.
BILD reveals what the authorities in Germany conceal – and why the police are not always allowed to tell the whole truth.
Both Cologne’s Mayor and Police chief were caught red-handed for blatantly lying.
► NRW: After the mass attacks on New Year’s Eve, Mayor Henriette Reker (59) on 4th and Police President Wolfgang Albers (59) on 5th January emphasized that there was no evidence that refugees were involved in the crime.
In fact, a riot police report of 2 January shows that 71 people found their personal data – most of which were asylum seekers. It is not yet clear whether these persons were involved in crime.
Hesse: A senior police officer from Frankfurt / M. explains BILD: “For offenses of suspects who have a foreign nationality and are registered in an initial reception center, we put the case on the desk immediately to the side.”
The official continued: “There is a strict instruction by the authorities to not report on crimes committed by refugees. Only direct requests from media representatives to such acts should be answered. “
However, anyway, not every offense is automatically published in Germany – but it is extraordinary that certain perpetrators deliberately NOT reported and the information is classified as “not press-free”.
According to BILD information, the Hessian police officers were instructed to remain silent at a conference.
Michael Schaich, spokesman for the Hessian Ministry of the Interior, admits: “The press secretaries were pointed out that the topic of ‘refugees’ could be exploited by right-wing extremists in order to foment the mood against those seeking protection.”
But since 2005, Sweden has absorbed a large influx of refugees from the overrepresented regions in North Africa and the Middle East. If overrepresentation has not changed dramatically since this last survey, it is reasonable to infer that immigration has contributed to the increase in reported sex crime. The figures may thus actually convey, not a feminist success, but a failure to protect women’s safety.
But open discussion of this subject is thwarted by taboos. Xenophobic movements in and outside Sweden use immigrant rapes as a political weapon to generalize about immigrants, which has made it an understandably sensitive topic. This has added to concerns that multiculturalism is tarnished and created a dilemma for Swedish politicians confronted with a choice between progressive orthodoxies about the benefits of multicultural diversity and the feminist duty to ensure female welfare and safety.

“Xenophobic movements in and outside Sweden use immigrant rapes as a political weapon to generalize about immigrants” [Source: Sweden’s Sexual Assault Crisis Presents a Feminist Paradox]. Lying to not give “political weapons” to xenophobic, racist movements is a generally accepted as a motive for lying by omission. No one protests such blatant vote rigging by withholding information from the voter.
