– Asserts that the expression “squatters, kick your ass”, It does not constitute a hate crime since it cannot be considered as a phrase that incites hatred or violence, but rather the expression of a desideratum of quick, effective and retributive justice based on a colloquial expression that means the immediate issuance of that will and not the manifestation of hatred or violence "
– Complaint that “those who silence us in the press, radio and television, also want to censor our message on billboards- Against the squatting mafia and against those who support, encourage and protect them, the social-communist government, we they will have in front "
Seville, October 6, 2020. The president of Vox Sevilla, Javier Cortes, denounced this Tuesday the censorship that the Autocontrol association has exercised in the anti-squatting campaign that this political formation develops throughout Spain and especially in the province of Seville since the beginning of last summer.
Cortés has stated that “Autocontrol, an association of advertising agencies, has decided to remove the billboard installed next to the Calonge industrial estate by arguing that breaks a rule that we do not know. We are clear to affirm "With Vox, squatters get kicked in the ass and out in 24 hours" does not constitute a hate crime or incitement to violence of those contemplated in art. 510 of the Penal Code ”.
Hate speech is described as conduct aimed at sectarian discrimination against an individual or a certain group. These manifestations of hatred must contain a certain degree of contempt for another human being, simply because they are different, but as the Supreme Court has indicated in a ruling, between the hatred that incites the commission of crimes, the hatred that sows the seed of confrontation and that erodes the essential values of coexistence and hatred that is identified with animosity and resentment, there are nuances that they cannot be edited with the argument that everything that is not acceptable in the freedom of expression is intolerable and, therefore, necessarily criminal ”.
The president of VOX Sevilla has asserted that “we understand that the expression“ squatters, kick in the ass ”, It does not constitute the criminal type envisaged for its classification as a hate crime since it cannot be considered as a phrase that incites hatred or violence, but rather the expression of a desideratum of quick, effective and retributive justice based on a colloquial expression that means the immediate issuance of that will and not the manifestation of hatred or violence ”.
"It is a blunt reaction -" out in twenty-four hours "- for urgent and forceful action of justice, of the defense of the current legislation or even its reform, to increase its effectiveness, against those groups that for spurious reasons justify the commission of the crimes of usurpation and trespassing, which are increasingly widespread in the national geographic scope and that truly are persistently and repeatedly alienating the constitutionally enshrined right to property”.
Javier Cortés has clarified that “our billboard does not consist in the expression of discrimination or humiliation of any group, but in the proactive manifestation of a proposal for action, directed by a political force directly to its voters and not as discrimination, intimidation, hatred or violence towards a group of suspected criminals. Hate speech is conduct oriented towards sectarian discrimination against a certain group or its members ”.
The president of VOX in the province of Seville has shown firm in the defense of the anti-squatting campaign “against the censors who do not act against the message that we convey to society, but against the third political force in Spain and the second in the province of Seville, where we are silenced in the press , radio and television and now we also want to limit the field in the advertising field. The squatting mafia and those who encourage and protect them, the social-communist government of Pedro Sánchez and Pablo Iglesias, must know that they are facing us.
