Thought Policeman of the Day: PC Paul Hughes

Here is a short video which really sums up the extent to which free speech is being suppressed in Britain today. A man is arrested on suspicion of a "racially aggravated public order offence", for singing the words "I'd rather wear a turban":



The speed with which PC Hughes pounced on the man as soon as he heard the "racist" words was really rather impressive. And am I being utterly paranoid, or did a slight smirk, as of a bully exulting in his own power, briefly leap across his face as he told his victim what his "crime" was (at 14 seconds in)?

Still, I'm sure we can all agree that arresting people like the heinous (and totally unrepentant) evildoer seen in this video is a far more valuable use of police time than such petty trivialities as, for example, stopping axe wielding burglars. Thank Heavens the police have their priorities straight!

Nope. Or the smirk that flitted across his face in the back of the van when he claimed that 'racist is whatever I perceive it to be'....

Wonder what the reaction would be if there were a few more of his friends with him, and they looked agressive? Or if they were all black or Asian, and singing something a white person could take offense at?

Pity the lad didn't opt to go before a magistrate - a good chance he'd have got off, assuming he got the right magistrate fed up with these imaginary 'crimes'.

And that is a good example of why you can't sometimes rely on people's discretion. Some don't have any....

We're turning into a Marxist police state, which isn't surprising when you look at the number of former student communists in New Labour. Mass immigration has been an excellent way of justifying authoritarianism, because they can pretend they have to protect poor minorities from the racist white majority. That's part of why it increases so drastically under New Labour.

Mass Immigration has no economic justification, the intention is to destroy the West with a 'new' and 'better' multicultural despotism.

Watch this video documentary on Cultural Marxism to see what I mean.

And "100 metres up the road" - a hundred what?

Succinctly put Muzzylogic.
But you must have noticed as well that thick northern accent of the copper as he picks on his own working class chums...as always. Little wonder those past Civil Wars all started in that region.
