U.K. crackdown on freedom of speech reaches new extreme

Things are really getting out of hand in the U.K. The government’s intolerance toward “hate-speech” has reached new extremes lately. We are used to reading about native Brits having their lives ruined for speaking up about the invasion of their country. We’ve heard hundreds of stories about Christians running afoul of hate-speech laws for objecting to Muslim cultural idiosyncrasies.

But this takes the cake: A Muslim teen has been arrested for comments he made on facebook:

According to Sky News, Azhar Ahmed of Ravensthorpe (19) posted comments on his profile page, criticizing the level of attention British soldiers who died in a bomb blast received, compared to that received by Afghan civilians killed in the war. The actual comment can be viewed here. Please note this comment is controversial and might offend. He was arrested on Friday and charged over the weekend. A West Yorkshire Police spokesman said: “He didn’t make his point very well and that is why he has landed himself in bother.” Ahmed has been charged with a racially aggravated public order offence and will appear at Dewsbury Magistrates Court on 20 March 2011.

Imagine that! A Muslim getting arrested for a “racially aggravated public order offence”. Look for public apologies and soul-searching from the West Yorkshire police department in the near future. Somebody will probably lose his job over this.
You can read his entire comment here. Personally, I think the government is out of line arresting him. He’s entitled to his opinion – but I do not believe he is entitled to live in the U.K. I wish we could make a deal: Let Western nations remove all their troops from third-world countries, and let all third-world people be removed from Western countries. Everybody would be happier in the end.

    Many British Muslims are part of the upper class, though they retain their mannerisms and customs from the old country.

    Boy, what a deal that would be!

    In the UK, 326 Members of Parliament constitute an absolute majority, and they have absolute, unlimited power to do literally anything they wish. If they chose to set up death camps for Christians, they can. If they chose to kill the royals and the lords (done that), to expel the 324 Members of the minority (done that), establish a dictatorship (done that), that’s their business. Currently, they are satisfied with so-called hate speech laws, but what they might do in the future is unknowable.

    Why is it that Afaghanis get so upset when they see their relatives killed by USA and British Bombs, or murdered by rogue soldiers?

    Even Osama Bin Laden got all upset and bothered when he watched those women and children burn to death in the Sabra and Shatila massacres. At that time he vowed to get revenge on the Americans who had supplied the bombs and artillary and who had made it all possible. He did get his revenge, too!

    Why do people hate it when their women and and children are burned to death? Those crazy muzzies . . . so excitable! Not like us – the good people.

      They weren’t “his” children.

      Yes your right! Only a racist (!!!!!)Can think that western culture cares about the life of an individual more then Muslim culture.

      And you are right again!! If the evil white Americans didn’t supplied the bombs and artillery to the militia that committed the Sabra and Shatila massacre, the noble savage Arabs would have been living happily ever after in harmony with each other (e.g. there was never any massacres and wars in the Muslim world before or after Sabra and Shatila massacre. It’s the greatest massacre in the history of the Muslim world) .
      I’m sure that a guy with great moral standards like Osama bin laden couldn’t begin even to understand how can such an horror be, that he just had to have a revenge and kill thousands of innocent people..

    I just fail to see why Muslims from Pakistan, Malaysia, Kenya, or African American converts, who have no connection to the Palestinians, would sacrifice their lives on the Palestinian cause, when the Arab world doesn’t really offer anything in return or show any gratitude.

    Pardon my language, but I see no reason not to repatriate troublemakers just because their mothers crapped them out in a foreign land. As far as that goes, there’s nothing stopping invaders from deporting the indigenous population, either. It would be nice to think that “right” and “wrong” have some universal laws backing them up the way gravity does. But they don’t. Therefore, people should be very, very careful before they throw open the floodgates of immigration.
