The Scottish Establishment in the form of the vile, evil SNP has targeted a trans Councillor for removal for referring to their mad hordes of raving feminazis as “Trans exclusionary.”
This is another huge battle that needs fought for free speech. The SNP bigots, who despise Scotland need to understand they are not God. The funny thing here is they have probably created another voice for free speech.
Looks like they have a Common Purpose “Standards Commissar” as well.
From the BBC.
Scotland’s only openly transgender Councillor has been suspended for two months over derogatory online remarks.
The Standards Commission for Scotland said a remark by Gregor Murray “went far beyond what is acceptable.”
The panel said it accepted that the councillor had suffered from “unwarranted bullying and abuse.”
The Dundee councillor had earlier resigned from the SNP, claiming it had a “major institutional problem with transphobia.”
It means the SNP now holds 14 of the council’s 29 seats, but retains an administration with support from independent councillor Ian Borthwick.
The standards commission said the councillor’s use of a “derogatory word in a public forum” had been “highly offensive and inappropriate.”
It said the councillor had also referred to a member of the public as a “TERF” (Trans Exclusionary Radical Feminist), subsequently describing “TERFs” as “scum”, and “hateful and vile.”
Councillor Murray identifies as non-binary and prefers to be referred to by the “they” pronoun, rather than “he” or “she”.
They said they were “severely disappointed” in the panel’s decision.
Councillor Murray said: “I accept that it is not appropriate for me to swear – I have apologised for this on numerous occasions and have already accepted sanctions for doing so.
“I am also extremely worried by the precedent that this has set that TERF is an offensive or abusive term.”
The panel’s chairwoman Ashleigh Dunn said: “Councillors have a duty under the code to treat members of the public with courtesy and respect and cannot, therefore, indulge in offensive personal abuse.
