Most recently, police refused to chase a suspect because the ground was too muddy.
They expect a cushy pension.
Britain used to lead the way in terms of liberalism, speech is core to this.
Why is Pat not more popular?
The guy’s a living legend.
A THIRD of people in Britain believe they cannot speak freely on controversial subjects such as immigration and religion for fear they may be criticised, lose their job or be prosecuted.
The study by the New Culture Forum, a Westminster think tank, warns that Britain has developed a “culture of silence” where people censor themselves in the workplace.
According to a YouGov poll more than a third (36%) believe they cannot speak freely on immigration, while 31% feel constrained on religion and 27% on ethical issues; 20% feel they cannot express their political views.
Royal Britannia, Britannia rules the waves, Britain never-never-never, shall be slaves!
Put him on Question Time with Mogg and I’d happily pay for a very expensive ticket.
The days are numbered on the Politeness Police. They keep asking for more money to oppress us. A legitimate authority is politically neutral. Mrs Grundy was never this much of a shrew.
On the bright side, to make it official policy (still no end to rape gangs) and ‘crack down’, this must be closer to over than we think?
Hurting feelings now means more than hurting the body itself. Investigate rape? No. Investigate stalking/burglary/rapes*? Nah. You can call a white woman a hooker if you’re a Muslim man, but the white woman can’t call him a piece of shit in return.
When equality under the law goes out of the window, the People will turn on those given ‘special protections’, especially protections to harm everyone else. I believe this is deliberate, to distract us with racial and religious matters while the transfer of money and power is under way. We’d still have severe 5th column problems if they never came/were deported.
*Most reported ‘burglaries’ are actually a new form of crime, actually a stalking/burglary/rape. They target a woman, follow her home, spy on the home (also illegal), pretend to burgle it and happen to rape her while they are there. This gives them a better legal defense if caught. That’s why police don’t investigate ‘burglaries’ anymore.
There’s no police for real crimes, but taxes continue to soar.
If the Alt Right really wants to rustle jimmies, convert to Islam and read all the parts about sex slavery at a feminist demo. Untouchable.
Where have I heard that before?
CH should sue.
He is spreading hatefacts, to be fair.
I see this ending well.
#1 on the arrest list should be Richard Dawkins then.
You sure you wanna bring this in, Lefties? This would also include banning anti-patriotic speech against this country and its culture, banning atheists from mocking Christians and non-white people from taking punts at whites in their traditional homeland.
I always thought Dawkins would get arrested for his affections for the wee ones…
We live in interesting times.
I wish he’d said Cultural Marxism, name the beast and like a demon, you have control of it.
And it’s status signalling, that’s the research term. Virtue signalling was a journalist invention.
Nor does he mention it’s a means for middle class people to judge working class people without looking like raging bigots (because people with a real job don’t give a shit what the Guardian thinks). The culture war is a class war designed to change the poor via pop culture.
They keep losing arguments.
It doesn’t sink in.
They keep losing elections.
It doesn’t sink in.
I think the anti-speech laws were a turning point here (UK).
The classical liberals realized they were on the side of the censors.
Two key articles on this topic if you haven’t seen:
New Church Ladies
Adults are putting their foot down to entitled little shits and saying you have no high horse. We reject Standpoint Theory. We have the right to laugh at your student opinions. You can’t control us.
This lady got a new viewer.
Repzion is turning SJW White Knight and bitching about her, so you know she must be onto something.
h/t BassFZz for introducing me to her.
SJWs cannot stand two things: beautiful women and intelligence.
This woman appears to have both, and a sense of humour.
I hope she keeps it up.
It used to be, a leader had to be strong.
Now, a leader must repeat how weak they are to make the opposition look bad, and in spite of their popularity by numbers behind them (mob).
If you let mediocre oversensitive Little Hitler powertripping egomaniacs into your building, they will take it from you. They are tyrannical dictators without the leadership skills.
Block tumblr on campus and see how long until they shut up, cut off from the stream.
…That these progressives should now be shocked at such intolerance and persecution after decades of speech codes, disruptions of conservative speakers, campus inquisitions which ignore Constitutional rights, cancellations of commencement speakers, and ideological litmus tests imposed on new hires and curricula, bespeaks not principle, but rather indignation that now they are on the receiving end of the bullying and harassment long inflicted on conservatives and people of faith….
…Worst of all, the spread of this intolerance throughout universities makes impossible the very purpose of higher education: to broaden students’ minds by allowing what Matthew Arnold called “the free play of the mind on all subjects” and by familiarizing them with the “best which has been thought and said in the world.” That ideal has now become scarce on our campuses. As Sykes wrote over 20 years ago, “Once feelings are established as the barometer of acceptable behavior, speech (and, by extension, thought) becomes only as free as the most sensitive group will permit.” This is precisely the state of affairs in American universities today, where the old notions that truth is a liberating force and that suffering teaches, and the great classics that embodied these and other verities of the human condition, have been sacrificed on the altar of victim politics and its aggrandizement of institutional power. So our universities now produce “snowflakes,” as some have called them, students with fragile psyches and empty minds….
Self-censorship in the face of intimidation has another name: cowardice.
No human right is more important than free speech. Without it no other rights can be asserted and defended. Free speech—the right of anyone to criticize and evaluate the claims of anyone else—is the best environment for discovering political, social, economic, and scientific truths. Political, religious, and ideological absolutists cannot tolerate criticism that punctures and wounds their delusions and dogmas. They look for ways to shut the offensive speakers up, including murder….
It’s anti-science. It’s Papacy over Galileo. You are The Man.
The truth is rarely popular and seldom denied ere long it is spoken.
However, I agree the average 18 year old “demanding” these codes is immature, but THAT IS THE POINT OF GOING TO COLLEGE. TO GROW UP.
If you try and restrict it, it isn’t free.
