First Saudi – Now Britain
Posted by Exile on January 4, 2008
So who’s next? The british blogger “Lionheart” is facing arrest on his return to the UK. Why? Because he is critical of the muslim population in his local area and has been exposing their illegal activities on his blog. He is facing arrest for stirring up racial hatred. He sees it as being arrested for being honest and telling the truth. Having read parts of his blog, I can understand him. He writes nothing more than what has already been reported elsewhere, but with a local interpretation and a good deal of personal conviction. Sometimes, he is even ahead of the press.
I am not a supporter of censorship. I dislike it in all its forms. I particularly dislike it when it carried out by those people that are elected to protect our freedom of speech and freedom of expression. Unfortunately, the only ones prepared to really support these freedoms are not available for election. Mainly because you have to have party support to be elected, and the party lines are not exactly supportive of unlimited freedom of speech. Which means they they do not support freedom of speech at all. In fact, I am convinced that they fear it. The truth is a very hard thing to stomach for some of these people. It does not futher their personal goals.
My advice to Lionheart would be to stay in the United States, which is where he claims to be, and seek political asylum there. Think of the public dismay. I wonder what the British MSM would make of that? Probably very little, but someone would perhaps take notice and the public debate might get going.
The British police are merely carrying out the policies laid down by their political masters. Don’t blame them. The politicians are elected by the general public. Maybe we should lay the blame there. The British public are apparently unaware that their freedoms are being eradicated by the very people they have chosen as leaders and defenders of their rights.
If they were aware of this, then things might look a lot different. The public is being misled, lied to and deceived. They simply don’t know it. Or they don’t care. Or maybe both.
I can understand the motivation for censorship in Saudi, ruled by a despotic King in a corrupt country.
I had higher hopes for my homeland.
It would appear, that the last vestages of common sense have evaporated and that the UK is about to do the same. Once the defender of the common man, it has now become the oppressor. Shameful.
I heard my (now late) father talking of “lions led by donkeys”. It would appear that the lions became pussies and the donkeys have become weasels.
I thought my countrymen were made of sterner stuff.
