The gloves come off in England
The Occidental Observer ^ | 4-30-2014 | Francis Carr Begbie

Posted on 05/09/2014 4:32:45 PM PDT by Renfield

The arrest of Paul Weston, an anti-immigration campaigner in England, for repeating Winston Churchill’s unflattering observations about Islam in a public speech has been reported around the world with headlines from the US to Russia to Japan. Weston, who leads a small party called LibertyGB, was bundled into a police van outside the Guildhall in the town of Winchester, after being arrested for suspected racial harassment.

It is a shocking event because to many people overseas, Britain is still a country where there is freedom of speech. But the Weston arrest is only the latest in a series of incidents that show that the British state’s gloves are coming off and police are coming down hard on anti-immigration campaigners — and they are not being too scrupulous about how they go about it, as the shocking arrests in of Clive Jefferson and Dawn Charlton in Cumbria last summer showed.

The two British National Party activists were both standing for local council elections in the town of Maryport and looked like giving the local Labour Party a run for their money, as both had been elected before and were popular figures. But Labour were playing dirty and when the BNP pair discovered evidence of vote tampering in Allerdale Council they filed a 22-page dossier to the police...

This will be the first execution in England since 1964.

The international socialists are taking the gloves off.

They're back and determined to make socialism's death count in the last century look like the figurative scraped knee.

Sounds like the demise of Britain is accelerating. We are following the same path, but maybe without the armed raids by the police. The IRS seems to be fulfilling that role.

No. It is in the EU. The EU does not recognize freedom. It allows limited privileges for permitted purposes.

I am surprised that conservatives who vocally state black on white crime stats in the USA (which are so under reported) haven’t been arrested for hate crimes.

...but we all know this will eventually happen

Not really, but a tipping point is coming in which sides and issues are solidified...then the battle will begin in earnest.

What is interesting is that in the 1300+- years that Islam has been trying to conquer the world, they have at last found a real ally in the Liberals, Queers and trannies.

Imagine what their campaign parties will be like.

After reading this article I find myself reminded of why we have the right to keep and bear arms and that’s so we can stand up to things like what the Labour Party is doing in the UK.

Not really. Muslims are just useful to the left now. Eventually, they will go after and destroy Islam, just like they did Christianity and Judaism.

Wrong. Islam will devour the leftist pukes, killing gays, women, and children by the millions when given the chance. England is dead. The leftists in GB are arresting nationalists there precisely because they fear Islam.

You just aren’t paying attention. Islam couldn’t “beat” Christianity for centuries, but the left crushed it with barely a wimper. Islam will be steamrolled by the left with no problem. Actually, the battle is already almost over. Islamic birth rated have dramatically plummeted and large chunks of the young people have given up the religion and morality. They are still useful as a tool, but that won’t be much longer.

This could be a far-right website. Notice the Mearsheimer video at the top. Very anti-Israel to the point of being right on the edge of anti-semitic.

Always check up on who writes or is behind a story.

Liberals have no answer for Islam - they don’t realize the only thing between them and death are Christians.

They won’t go after Islam, they’re cowards. They only go after Christians because it’s fun (too easy). Look how they apologize for Islam all the time.

The power of belief is unstoppable. Even when that belief is in a lie.

Liberals on the other hand have no real belief. Their faith is in the absence of a God.

Their faith is in humankind.

Even Obama has been taking notice that humans are "disappointing" at best.

And Judaism is far from dead however much some Jews by blood have tried to disown it.

If the power of belief in a lie is powerful, how much more powerful is a faith in the Truth.

Judaism is the foundation on which Christianity rests and Christianity is the foundation on which Western Civilization rests.

Even China is becoming a Christian nation.

As to my naivete. Believe me when I tell you that I am an idiot.

I have risked my life on something without proof or evidence. As my forefathers wrote in our family shield "all my hope is in God."

The Left has defeated the "Sunday go to meeting Christians" who are not ready to stand up for their faith and are too dumbfounded to stand up to society.

This is not Christianity.

In fact, Christianity is never stronger than when it has been driven underground.

When time for martyrdom comes, let's see who is willing to give his life for his faith.

Liberals will cry like little babies when the Muslims start slicing off heads. Christians will be honored to be martyred for their faith is such if their lot.

Signing our own death warrant.

And I am not even certain that, if the GOP were to take the Senate and the House in the next election, that anything will change in our *sskissing and submissive attitude toward Islam.

IMHO, we are at a point of redefining our society in ways that mirror our faith.

Islam and Liberalism are colliding with Christianity and Judaism and we haven't actually worked out the ways this will conclude.

Islam and Liberalism are the bullies on the block...but the game is far from over.

In fact, this battle is just beginning.

From my POV as a devout Christian, I think the Liberals and Muslims are in for a fight to the finish.

Ultimately, the Truth will win. And those who believe in something which is untrue will be sorely disappointed.

Christianity allowed itself to be shamed into silence. Islam has no such shame. It will be fascinating to watch the two sides go at each other from my cell.

These people don’t have guns in the house and are part socialists themselves. Arguably they would not use a gun if they had it since they have been programmed from birth.

So, BIIIIGGGG differences between here and Britain.

There is no freedom of speech in England and never has been. I lived there 5 years and have been on numerous travels before and after. England is the worlds oldest third world country, now overrun by musselmans, the latest to occupy the hapless country. We fought two wars against them for good reasons. Unfortunately, freedom of speech in this republic is also in danger, hanging by a thread.

Sorry but I don’t understand what you have written. Many European Jews are terrified by Islamic immigration into England and France, among other countries.

It is the marxist/socialist Left that is deceiving people into supporting it, and this Left goes across all religious groups.

They are behind a lot of the anti-semitism and anti-Israel demonstrations and disinformation, esp. in France and the Netherlands.

All I was saying in my comment was that I had some suspicions and worries about who was behind the article as I wasn’t acquainted with the original source but the ad for Mearsheimer raised some antenna.

Where in the Left Wing Media have you heard any of what I have said.

The Left believes Islam is harmless and, poor babies, needs to be protected sto as to not be offended.

Islam is Demonic...it will eat the Left and swallow without even chewing well.

Well they are. I dont think the police acted badly in this at all. They are only enforcing the laws Parliament have enacted. The real culprits are our representatives, for allowing the passage of "hate laws".

This kind of thing, erosion of personal freedom of speech - is the inevitable result of "hate laws". How can they not be? A hate law basically calls for value judgements on motive. Assaulting someone is bad. Assaulting them because you dislike their gender, sexuality, culture or racial background is somehow worse. Slandering someone is bad, and can lead to criminal prosecution, but slandering someone because they are asian, black, gay or whatever is somehow worse?

In such a circumstance obviously people are going to push for a crime to be labeled as a "hate crime", because the punishment is going to be more severe (and any compensation duly greater). More dangerously, any criticism of someone can now be completely deflected by labeling it "hateful".
