Thought Crimes in the Place Where Great Britain Used To Be

More like Airstrip One from Nineteen Eighty-Four every year. “We Need to Check Your Thinking”: UK Police Go After Thought Criminals.

A 53-year-old married father of four in England was interrogated by an officer from the Humberside Police Department for more than 30 minutes because he “liked” Twitter posts including a limerick, that was critical of transgender persons. The officer made it clear that police had tracked the man, Harry Miller, to his place of work after reviewing his personal Twitter account and would report him to his employer if the company had transgender employees on staff. The given reason was that Miller’s behavior had made the company an unsafe workplace for the transgendered. The real reason, of course, was to let Miller know in no uncertain terms that his livelihood was being threatened.

The cops admit there was “no crime,” but say there is a victim. So explain that.

From there, things got “sinister,” as Miller put it. “The cop told me that he needed to speak with me because, even though I’d committed no crime whatsoever, he needed (and I quote) ‘to check my THINKING!’ Seriously. Honestly,” Miller wrote. The officer then went on to lecture Miller about transgenderism before closing with a warning that, “I needed to watch my words more carefully or I was as risk of being sacked by the company for hate speech.”

As they say, go read the whole thing.

The Coming Civil War

You really need to read the whole thing. The Second Civil War, Part 2.

Democrats no longer honor the Constitution and most no longer feel any reason to conceal their disdain. When they take an oath of office to uphold and defend it, they’re lying. The law–any law–must be what they say it is and change whenever they please. When they take power again, and they will, America as we know it will be over. The rule of law is already lost. Our Justice system is already two-tiered. As I noted in my earlier argument, when they come for the guns–and they will–that will be the last straw, though it take awhile for normal Americans to rise up.

Hat tip to The Daily Gator.

“When you’re so scared of a Conservative speaker that you threaten a student organization?”

Are there any parts of the Constitution or Bill of Rights that the Left is in favor of? Threat Made Against YAF For Sponsoring Shapiro’s GWU Speech Tonight. (On the 17th, actually.)

They definitely don’t like the 2nd Amendment. They don’t like religion or free speech. They looked the other way why the Right – and the War on (Some) Drugs ™ – decimated the 4th Amendment. (That doesn’t even touch the stupidity of F*c*book, Google, et al.) Maybe the 3rd Amendment is safe. (Since I doubt anyone in college today knows what the 3rd Amendment says without looking it up on Google.)

Anyway, posters were up around campus warning Young American’s Foundation (YAF) to get security. The campus authorities decided to ignore the threats.

Campus authorities are dismissive of this threat against YAF, reportedly saying it’s ‘most likely not a threat according to DC code.’ Looks like @GWtweets is another school that treats microaggressions as dire but refuses to take seriously threats against conservatives.

The poor dears on George Washington University are so triggered by the thought of other people listening to a speech that they disagree with, that they are moved to threats of violence. You would think they were being forced to listen to Ben, but they aren’t. Their attitude is, “You will not think thoughts that we do not approve of!”

Some More Info on Thousand Oaks

Considering the MSM, this isn’t a terribly anti-gun article. At the only gun shop in Thousand Oaks, fearful residents decide it’s time to buy a gun.

I stopped writing about mass shootings, because immediately after an event it is all speculation. Well, that and the Democrats doing the Gun-control Dance. But this article had some information that I find interesting.

Overall this is an interview with a gun-store owner and some of his customers on a given day. With a few quotes from a guy who runs training at a nearby range.

As new customers cycled through the store, the constant chatter—besides general expressions of hatred for the shooter—was about the six unarmed, off-duty law enforcement officers who were reportedly at the bar during the shooting. Their lack of weapons was a presumed consequence of a California law barring firearms in bars.

Six members of law-enforcement disarmed for everyone’s protection by the Democratic legislature/governor of California. How’s that working out for you?

The other piece of info that is completely expected – the neighbors are shocked to discover that they do live in the Real World™ where crime can, and sometimes does, happen.

Residents have long regarded this city as a serene little community forty miles away from the crime and blight of Los Angeles. But the shooting this week drove home a creeping feeling that the outside world is encroaching on Thousand Oaks.

The guy from the training center had a few words about the “closeted, gun-owning liberals” who would NEVER admit to being an evil gun-owner to their liberal friends. Because gun-owners are evil in the eyes of the liberals.

The reporter ends with a quote from a 12-year-old (who wasn’t in the store, but was skating around the parking lot).

He chimed in with his opinion on gun control. “No matter how hard they make it to get a gun, they’re going to get one,” Ethan said. “I’m a kid and I don’t know anything but I know that.”

Segregation of the Sexes Comes to Sweden

Because coed music festivals are not safe. Women cheer as Sweden’s man-free music festival kicks off.

Matilda Hagerman laughs with her friends as she queues at a man-free music festival, which kicked off in Sweden on Friday in protest against a wave of sexual assaults at festivals in recent years.

Think about that last part of the quote: “in recent yeas.” It’s almost like something changed in the past few years.

This seems like a victory for Sharia. Because the authorities don’t want to be xenophobic, they ignored attacks at first, then down-played them, but in the end did nothing concrete. And so spaces are now segregating for safety.

Knyckare told AFP that the MeToo wave exposing sexual assault unveiled “serious problems” in Sweden, one of the most gender equal nations in the world, at not only festivals but several institutions.

This is The Local. They are so far to the Left they can’t see the center anymore. So while they talk about “safe spaces” they don’t mention when those safe spaces became necessary, or any of the attacks from previous festivals – only in the abstract.

So is this progress, or a massive step backwards?

Cody Wilson and Defense Distributed Back At It

Turns out the ruling against Defense Distributed said he couldn’t give the file away indiscriminately. So he will sell them. Man Behind 3D Gun Files Spoils The Left’s Celebration Over Ban With Major Announcement.

“This judge’s order, stopping us from simply giving things away, was only an authorization that we could sell it, that we could mail it, that we could email it, that we could provide it by secure transfer. I will be doing all of those things, now,” announced Wilson.

Proceeds from the files will go for legal fees.

You can get all your 3D printer files (and other files) at DEFCAD.COM, where you can also buy 80% lowers and a Ghost Gunner.

The 30-year-old said he’s “happy now to become the iTunes of downloadable guns if I can’t be the Napster,” but added that it was somewhat “regrettable” that state attorneys general drove him into the commercial space.

Citizens Must OBEY The Police Or Be Destroyed

The previous posting wasn’t the only instance of cops shooting law-abiding citizens. Battlefield America: The Ongoing War on the American People.

This is what a state of undeclared martial law looks like, when you can be arrested, tasered, shot, brutalized and in some cases killed merely for not complying with a government agent’s order or not complying fast enough.

The linked article has a litany of incidents involving police shooting/tasering/brutalizing people because they could not OBEY fast enough.

James Madison warned about the dangers of a standing army. The police have become that militarized force, in some cases terrorizing the citizens, in some cases killing them with immunity. (So-called limited immunity, which never seems to be too limited.)
