The Era of Malice
Whatever happened to those friendly, blue pith- helmeted British "constables on patrol" of yore? The stolid ones who walked the foggy streets armed only with nightsticks, and gave you some visible assurance they were on the lookout for bad guys, and not you?
They've been long buried, or retired, or have been replaced by PC-friendly, PC-compliant nonentities who'll take orders and harass or arrest advocates of the freedom of speech, rather than risk dismissal and a pension for calling a Muslim a Muslim. They'd prefer to arrest Winston Churchill for bad-mouthing Nazis or Muslims than blow a whistle in pursuit of criminals. Paul Weston, a British libertarian, was arrested and silenced for reading excerpts from Churchil's The River War. The "constables" are now on the lookout for you and for any evidence of "hate speech" against especially Muslims.
It's evidence of Britain's capitulation to Islam that it persecutes the advocates of the opposition of such capitulation that three individuals were barred from entering Britain because they allegedly posted a threat to "public safety" by holding their views. Lauren Southern, and Austrian activist Martin Sellner of Génération Identitaire and his girlfriend, American author and YouTuber Brittany Pettibone. Southern was detained in Calais, while Sellner and Pettibone were imprisoned for three days after being grilled on their political beliefs and speeches in Islamized Europe.
Sadiq Khan, the Muslim mayor of London, and determined to "transform" the City into a Sharia-compliant center of Islamic triumph, has called for the tech companies to sift out and crush free speech, as though the tech companies weren't doing enough already. Do not defame Islam with "Islamophobia" or you will "spend a night in the box" or worse. Khan makes Oliver Cromwell look like a Quaker. The American Thinker has his number. On March 14th it ran this article, "Sadiq Khan Squelches Freedom of Thought and Expression":
Sadiq Khan, the first Muslim mayor of London, will be speaking at a conference of technology executives in Austin, Texas. The gist of his remarks has been announced. It is a speech advocating a troika of control, condemnation, and confiscation. The control he requests is that the masters of the internet bar anti-Islamic comments and threats. His condemnation is of President Donald Trump for his tweets (especially those in support of Britain First), which have proven to be an encouragement to those with an anti-Islamic agenda. And he suggests that the big technology firms be taxed not on the basis of profits, but on the basis of revenue if the anti-Islamic messages continue on the internet, thus threatening confiscation if his "advice" is not taken. He has expressed delight at Germany's hate speech laws, advocated and advanced by Angela Merkel.
