UK Authorities Crackdown on Free Speech in the Wake of Woolwich
Enza Ferreri Blog ^ | 25 May 2013 | Enza Ferreri

British soldier Lee Rigby beheaded by a jihadist in Woolwich

Now, finally, the British authorities are determined to do something serious and decisive in relation to the Woolwich beheading.

They have warned, charged, arrested and released on bail several people for making inflammatory and anti-Muslim comments on Twitter and Facebook. Police say people should be careful about what they write on Twitter as the 'consequences could be serious'.

Now you're talking! Our authorities are not cowered into submission by a bunch of extremist, radical, dangerous and murderous Islamists, sorry, Islamophobes!

Two of the men arrested were trying to organise an anti-Muslim protest in Bristol and made racist and “anti-religious” remarks.

I like that "anti-religious". Would they have been arrested for insulting Christianity?

The two Bristol men were held under the Public Order Act on suspicion of inciting racial or religious hatred.

In the meantime, militant Muslims like Anjem Chourdary, who mentored and inspired Woolwich beheader Michael Adebolajo, are living free and on £25,000 a year of tax-payer-funded state benefits.

It’s about time to throw a spanner into the mechanism.

My guess is they are EDL. How Ironic, they speak the truth like Tea Partiers did and not England follows the Obama-Holder Pre-Election lead and treats them like they treated us....

Guess that’ll show ‘em. This is not satire. Right? Right? Right?

The UK is leading the West into the abyss of death and destruction.

Nuke the islands from orbit. It’s the only way to be sure.
