As debates over free speech and accusations of "cancel culture" continue to simmer across the world, the issue last week emerged as a fierce rallying cry on the streets of Spain.

A provocative Spanish rapper became an unlikely figurehead for widespread protests and galvanized a debate about freedom of expression in the European country.

Pablo Hasél's tweets and lyrics came back to haunt him, as the anti-establishment musician was imprisoned last Tuesday on charges of insulting Spain's monarchy and glorifying terrorism, sparking night upon night of protests in major cities across the country, some of which have turned violent.

Hasél — whose full name is Pablo Rivadulla Duró — missed a deadline earlier this month to surrender to police to serve a nine-month jail term handed down in 2018, when he was convicted over lyrics and tweets that compared Spanish judges to Nazis and called former King Juan Carlos a mafia boss. He also made references to the Basque separatist paramilitary group known as ETA, which sought independence from Spain.

Instead, Hasél barricaded himself in a university in the Catalan city of Lleida before he was eventually arrested and jailed.

"Tomorrow it could be you," he tweeted before he was imprisoned and after retweeting the lyrics that he was convicted for.


The report continues online.

Partly because I wanted to see how it feels to use the New Topic function with the Angry Face emoji. I can't recall ever doing that before.

I think this is a very important story. Some reports say that he was arrested for "inciting violence" and "glorifying terrorism". Does that ring a bell?
Spain is now engulfed in riots.

His story could be recounted for centuries to come, as the moment that sparked the worldwide revolt.

¡Suelta a Pablo!

Think its any different here ?

2 weeks ago "Proud Boys" was deemed a "terrorist organization" and voicing agreement with their values or stance for freedom automatically makes you an associate of a terrorist group

I'm at the point I dont give a **** anymore, this world needs a little more terror inflicted on the left to put them back in their place. 2 generations ago "terrorism" was called "resistance to tyranny"
