Some sins are 'worse' than others. Gay hate would get a pass.

This is right out of Stalin’s playbook.

R3 is very certain that the power of censorship will never be used against him.

R3 is sure that there will never be a government that seeks to prosecute him for sharing a pro-gay, or pro-trans, or sarcastically anti-Christian or anti-Muslim meme.

R3 is living in a happy fantasy world where you can give government unlimited power, because they will only use it against "bad guys."

Communism in action.

by Anonymousreply 6June 22, 2022 8:44 PM

No, R6. It's late-stage capitalism turning to systematic and arbitrary repression in order to try to keep the unfair status quo upon which it supports itself. Communism doesn't have anything to do with these repressive measures: it's a political and economic system in full collapse seeking ways to criminalize all forms of dissent.

R7 is a moron.

If that is the law over in the UK I would expect a cop to know that and obey them. His own damn fault.

England has no First Amendment.

Racism is a crime, the cop got what he deserved.

Homosexuality was a crime when Stonewall was raided, and everyone there knew they were breaking the law.

I don't think they "got what they deserved." Do you? I think the law was overreaching, repressive, and oppressive. I think the government had no business trying to control who talked to whom in a bar, and what they talked about.

What do you think?

Some of you are so dense. This is a cop making jokes about a cop killing.

Big Brother In Action.

The British Big Brother is fussing over emotions in its former colony.

Britain still feels it carries the responsibility of.

1. The White Man's Burden.

2. Being The World's Policeman.

Brits have always been pro-police state. They’ve moved to make internet porn automatically banned. Films from 50 years ago only got released there recently due to censorship. Female ejaculation and any kind of urination in porn is an arrestable offense. Knives are even banned. I remember after 9/11 they had no problem with government going through everyone’s shit proclaiming that you shouldn’t have a problem if you have nothing to hide. They’re a very stupid people.
