BRUSSELS — (12-11-21) — The European Union’s move to insert ‘hate crimes’ wording into its founding treaties are being called hostile acts towards member states as Hungary and Poland who currently have anti-LGBT laws in their respective countries.

Brussel’s is moving forward in persuading the European Commission to add “hate crimes” to one of the founding treaties of the EU. This will give Brussels more power to sanction member states that it deems are not effectively tackling hate speech, homophobia and misogyny.

The European Commission Bill Text says, “hate is moving into the mainstream, targeting individuals and groups of people sharing or perceived as sharing ‘a common characteristic,’ such as race, ethnicity, language, religion, nationality, age, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, sex characteristics or any other fundamental characteristic, or a combination of such characteristics.”

The European Commission says that they are proposing to tackle ‘hate’ by adding it to the list of crimes that already exists within the text of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union.

Currently, the EU list includes drug trafficking, human trafficking, sexual exploitation of women and children and terrorism.
