Where photography is a crime that will get you 13 months in prison, but raping young girls will be ignored by the police as long as they can get away with it. Right-wing activist Tommy Robinson reportedly jailed after filming outside child grooming trial | Fox News
“Tommy’s lawyer said he will likely die in jail given his profile and previous credible threats, and the judge basically said he doesn’t care,” the source said. “He sentenced him to 13 months in prison.”
Oh, and Free Speech? The UK doesn’t need free speech – at least not according to the judge. And that’s a good thing because they clearly don’t have free speech.
The judge in the case on Friday slapped a reporting ban on the case. The order bans reporters from reporting on a case if there is reason to believe the reporting could prejudice a trial. The order prevents reporting until the conclusion of the trial Robinson was reporting on.
He was basically arrested and jailed for questioning the authority of the government, pointing out that they ignored crimes by Muslim men because they didn’t want to appear prejudiced, and for saying mean things about Islam.
Mike Miles of 90 Miles From Tyranny asks What Is Hate Speech?
Hate Speech is the new leftist device to shut up people who disagree with them. Anything the left dislikes is now becoming hate speech
The quotes from Orwell are worth a look on their own.
University. EXCLUSIVE: Student gov impeaches student for conservative views.
The University of Illinois Student Government voted Wednesday to impeach a conservative student based primarily on his political activity.
Because conservatives are the only minority (on college campuses) with no rights.
The articles of impeachment specifically cited Minik’s role in organizing a memorial wall for victims of illegal immigration
That is inexcusable. In the eyes of the Left.
I used to get a fair percentage of my monthly visitors to this blog, through web searches on “357 stopping power.” Early on, I got so many visitors looking for that information that I added the page they were looking for. 357 Magnum Ballistic Information. (OK, it isn’t the greatest.)
But lately, since Google/Alphabet along with Facebook and Twitter started their collective war against anyone they disagree with, those people are no longer getting sent to my site.
I’m sure they are finding what they need, but the information isn’t tied to a site that has information on the political insanity of the Left, a collection of posts on how guns are used every week in lawful self-defense, and random attacks on the idea of socialized medicine.
In a world where bakers are compelled to bake cakes they feel violate their religious convictions, why do the internet companies get to discriminate against political opinions they don’t like?
Only what they consider “offensive.” It isn’t “for the children.” It is for the 20 bucks they will charge you to unblock the internet. Want To Watch Porn And Offensive Content In Rhode Island? That’ll Be $20 » Pirate’s Cove
Also, the definition of “offensive” is a bit vague. Guess where Milo’s political rants, InfoWars, The Blaze … OK that may be too far, but it may not. Like I said. Vague.
Meaning that virtue signalers/SJWs will soon be deciding what is offensive. What could possibly go wrong?
No words on if they are trying to backdoor a law forbidding TOR, VPNs, etc. (When I have my VPN active, or I’m using the TOR browser, my service provider can’t see what content I’m accessing.) How will they impose that block?
So the Left takes another step away from Free Speech. I’m shocked. (OK, not shocked.)

Even The Wall Street Journal’s op-ed pages have realized that American Universities, and their tenured ivory-tower-protagonists’ “free speech” arguments, have sent the Spinal Tap hypocrisy amplifier to 11..

We will not discuss things in a civil manner. You shall not think for yourself. You shall only think what we tell you to think. Students storm library, shut down College Republicans meeting.
Hardly surprising coming from the University of California, Santa Cruz. (The University at the Beach.)
They were bent out of shape over the fact that a meeting of College Republicans was underway in one of the Library’s meeting rooms.
A College Republicans meeting at the University of California, Santa Cruz was taken over by protesters screaming that the group’s existence is a threat to the safety of students.
Because nothing says violence like a peaceful meeting, and nothing says peace like a bunch of screaming, antifa-friendly radicals. (War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery. Everyday it feels more and more like 1984.) [Hat tip Insty]
