Jolene Bunting has been suspended, censored and could potentially be banned from standing in future elections for up to five years by far-left fascists and Islam apologists.
SteveLawsReport (h/t Marvin W) According to Jolene,
“I simply spoke out about the 2 biggest problems interfacing us today ISLAM & MASS MUSLIM IMMIGRATION, not just here in Belfast or the U.K, but the entire Western civilization & I’m treated worse than a convicted sex offender.”
This shocking string of events starts back in August 2018, when Jolene was suspended from council duties for four months while investigations were carried out into complaints about public statements she made about Islam.
She also received a backlash for her support of leaflets which warned of the dangers of Islam, which Jolene did not have any involvement in the printing or distribution, but defended the right of whoever printed the leaflets during a Belfast City Council meeting in April 2018 stating:
“It’s up to the leaders in this city to address people’s concerns and not just label them as racist or fascist. Fascists are the people who don’t want anyone to speak out about Islam.”
She defended the posting of anti Islam leaflets through residents doors in Belfast. She defended this leaflet (below) by saying “I believe they [the leaflets] were information. It may not have been put in the most helpful way, but people in this city need to know information about all faiths in society.”
In November of the same year the High Court appeal started which paused the suspension. In March 2019, the High Court stated that Jolene should serve the rest of her suspension.
The following month her shocking suspension continued. In May 2019, the local elections happened in which Jolene lost her seat. Jolene stated “I believe this was due to the constant negative publicity I received from the local media during my election campaign, along with having all my social media accounts take down 2 weeks into my re-election campaign.”
“These are dark times for democracy.”
Jolene has been hounded by the media throughout this ordeal, they have labelled her ‘racist’, ‘far right’ and have continually tried to discredit Jolene’s name.
Her crime…criticizing Islam.
Jolene publicly criticized Islam during an Anti-Terror Rally, held in Belfast, 2017 and since then she has been harassed and hounded by many people including fellow councillors.
Jolene lost her appeal in March 2019 and had to serve the remainder of her suspension which inevitably damaged her chances of having a successful campaign in the upcoming local elections. Jolene believes she lost the elections due to the ‘witch hunt’ against her.
Jolene has not even been questioned by the police yet these unelected officials can potentially ban her from standing in election. This isn’t democracy. She is the first councillor in the U.K. to be suspended while the outcome of an investigation is pending.
As she is no longer an elected councillor, they can’t suspend, this leaves them two options. Drop the case or ban her from standing in election for office, for 5 years.
