A police force has been slammed for its 'utterly chilling, North Korean-style' hate crime awareness campaign.
Merseyside Police were heavily criticised on social media after using the slogan, 'Being offensive is an offence' on a mobile billboard driven around the Wirral on Saturday.
The force tweeted images of their new slogan board alongside the Rainbow Flag to show their support for LGBTQ people.

I am offended by their slogan. When are they going to be arrested because I was offended?
The idiots driving this vehicle should have been met with a hail of rocks.
This is only a minor setback for the neo-fascist liberal crowd. They’ll be back. And they’ll be a bit more clever next time.
I suspect the LGBT community is a large part of the psychopathic group doing the coup... Then again, that doesn’t explain John Kerry...
Being a student of history, there is an important lesson:
Being offensive can get you hung on a cross.
Bullets don’t kill people, words kill people. Smart.
The ‘right’ to be politically offensive is called ‘free speech’ It’s protected in 1st world countries.
Offending the Woke for fun should be a thing.
Whatever offends them and isn’t disagreeable too to you should be something you do as much as you please.
If they want a statue down, put up another. If they want something renamed take back the name of something already renamed.

Not so much since the invention of the term “hate speech”. Go right ahead and exercise your free speech. Just don’t use any hate speech.
And just what is hate speech? Well, it’s any kind of speech that the fascist left doesn’t like.
The list of first-world countries that meet your likely definition of “sane” is VERY short, and getting shorter. I suspect that you can count their number on one hand with fingers left over now.
People can and have been arrested over politically-incorrect facebook posts in the UK and Australia already, and tried in court for politically-incorrect editorials in Canadia. Although I haven’t heard of specific examples, I suspect that most countries in the EU also have laws on the books that would support such action. And here in the US, the federal government is already talking about taking such action, and private companies are already “cancelling” people who make such posts.
So, a “Western” country is practicing repression just like the dictatorships. Elected leaders will get away with whatever they can if we’re not careful. And if we’re careful, they’ll just hide what they do.
That cartoon should have been published two years later.
The funny thing is, I thought it was much later. I actually have the old Bloom County and Outland books. Bloom County was much better. Outland just got weird. Like he gave up.
...unless, of course, one is offended by the billboard.
Orwell unfortunately knew his people well.
