Eleven people across UK arrested for making 'racist or anti-religious' comments
Dailymail ^ | 25 May 2013 | Daily Mail Reporter

Posted on 05/25/2013 6:47:01 AM PDT by klpt

The murder of soldier Lee Rigby has provoked a backlash of anger across the UK, including the attacking of mosques, racial abuse and comments made on social media.

Eleven people have been arrested around Britain for making 'racist or anti-religious' comments on Twitter following the brutal killing in Woolwich on Wednesday.

The incident has also prompted a huge increase in anti-Muslim incidents, according to the organisation Faith Matters, which works to reduce extremism.

Before the attack about four to eight cases a day were reported to its helpline. But the group said about 150 incidents had been reported in the last few days, including attacks on mosques.

Brits are being arrested for twitter comments?

have any so-called “muslim clerics” yet been arrested for internet screeds calling for murder and mayhem?

Oh yes, but that didn’t do Rigby much good did it?

I am of the belief that these are nothing but
front organizations utilized by Islamics to
shield themselves from the result of THEIR
own extremeist actions.

The British government is protecting the disease that has infected the country and, unchecked, will kill it.

Quick, quick, make some arrests to scare people away from making logical conclusions and speaking the truth.

This is no different than being sent to the gulags for daring to speak honestly about another totalitarian regime. The West, in both their propaganda and their punishing of dissent, is striding quickly to Communist levels.

The Brits don’t have free speech. At some point they will have to be brought up to modern standards ~ but that’s not just yet. Eventually they’ll beg for it!

you have as much free speech as you can handle ~ don't let the stupidity and thuggishness of PC hold you back.

I never do.

BTW, did you know the current President is the stupidest individual in American history to hold public office?

“some of them are quite aggressive very focused, very aggressive attacks.”

They’re talking about Brits on Facebook, not the radical Muslim jihadist killers. Time for Brits to take matters in their own hands.
What an upside down world.

Before the dust settles (which it never will), there will be lots of bloodshed. There is no bright ending to the muzzie’s plan to kill all invidals.

I truely expect to see something very similar to the “beheading” attempt happening here in the U.S.

The Swedes will eventually figure it out ~ Islam is not compatable with Northern Climates. With Ramadan coming so near Mitsummer I think many muzzies are going to RECONSIDER the whole deal.

The only problem with the police trying to stop the native Swedes from protecting themselves is the response it will generate from other Swedes. Now that could get out of hand! LOL!

I believe the Swedes are too late,

muslim immigration has reached the 15% level where society starts to change to surrender its values to them

especially with a governing class that appeases at all costs and surrenders because the government class has luxurious safe sanctuaries where they are immune to what they wreak on others

Swedish women are dying their hair dark to try and avoid rape .. can the burqa be far behind

British words vs. Muslim knives and the police move against those who even say anything that might expose Islam. British authorities are actually colluding with the Islamic terrorists and will get more Brits killed through their active suppression of any knowledge that Islam is inimical to civilization and Muslims will kill infidels by choice.

When some Swedes view the Swedish nationalists defending their nation against the Muslim marauders as the bad guys, and some Brits view the EDL defending their nation against Muslim terrorism as the bad guys then you get a sense of how incredibly powerful the propaganda of the media and academia is in forming a collective opinion. This sort of brainwashing on a national level required the around the clock, appeal to numerous senses power of TV. This inversion of morality where you are considered the good guy if you give your country away rather than defend it and stand up for your people rather than work against them could not have happened pre-TV.

Look for the Muslim extremists to do another hit real soon. Kill a British soldier/government official, get more Brits arrested. Perfect circular event for them.

Listen to me and you shall hear, news hath not been this thousand year:
Since Herod, Caesar, and many more, you never heard the like before.
Holy-dayes are despis’d, new fashions are devis’d.
Old Christmas is kicked out of Town
Yet let’s be content, and the times lament, you see the world turn’d upside down.

"Reports are being posted online that large numbers of young Swedish men are now patrolling Stockholm and battling with the Muslim rioters. The Swedish media states that a large number of police mobilized to prevent “50 right-wing extremists” from patrolling the streets of Tumba, a suburb of Stockholm."

I guess the Swedes deserve the gov't they elected.
