Here’s an interesting little snippet: about nine people a day are being arrested by British officials for the crime of posting “offensive messages online.”
Such “offense” is seldom actually defined (vagueness being the root of all tyranny), unless we include the qualifier “it hurt some ultra-sensitive asswipe’s feeewings” in the casus praehendum.
It’s a good thing I don’t live in the U.K., or else I’d no doubt get visited by the rozzers just for expressing my reaction to, for example, the South Yorkshire Police, who posted this bullshit:
Hate will not be tolerated in South Yorkshire. Report it and put a stop to it.
Here’s my response:
And that goes for all you little PC scolds, tattletales and snowflakes out there as well.
Hate, you assholes? I’ll show you hate. A pox on all of you.
