Quote:Two recent arrests in Britain could serve as its epitaph.

The first, as captured in this video , was that of a middle-aged woman named Amy who was arrested on Wednesday at her home. Amy herself began filming with her phone as police demanded that she let them in. When Amy asked them whether she was going to be arrested and asked them what the charge was, they refused to answer, and simply repeated their demand that she let them in, threatening to break down the door if she didn?t.

Watching the video, one shares Amy?s confusion and fear at being confronted by police at her door at nine o?clock in the morning. Then when she does open the door, she is told she is under arrest. A young male policeman bellows, ?Do not resist us!? He and his female partner roughly handcuff Amy and lead her away.

Last month, Amy confronted London police in Hyde Park ? as you can see in this video — where Muslims were placing down their prayer mats on the walkways and conducting public prayer. She pointed out to them that it was against the law to hold public prayers in parks, but police responded only with obfuscation and indifference.

Amy wasn?t arrested, however, for embarrassing the London police. At least not officially. As you can see from yet another video , she was arrested for ?homophobia,? not ?Islamophobia,? in a highly questionable case. Apparently she said ?Have a gay day? to a gay rights activist who confronted her, and is being charged with assault for pushing him away.

The assault charge, however, given that Amy is hardly an imposing physical presence and walks with a cane, is absurd and obviously trumped-up. Amy?s arrest seems to indicate that British police are now arresting people for saying the wrong thing or having unacceptable opinions. It appears as if Britain is now fully a police state, in which people can be arrested and brutalized on nebulous ?hate? charges, and have no rights, no recourse.End of quote.

Not appears, Robert. It is. Quote.

Quote:Theresa May?s government being as Sharia-compliant as it is, it is entirely possible that Amy was targeted also for reminding police of the law forbidding public prayer in parks, or for ?Islamophobia? in general ? or if she wasn?t, such arrests are coming, and coming soon, as indicated by the arrest on Friday of activist Tommy Robinson.

Robinson was standing outside the courthouse where a trial of a Muslim rape gang was taking place, discussing Britain?s rape gang crisis. Reporters stand outside courtrooms all the time and make videos; Tommy wasn?t doing anything that they don?t do. But he was suddenly arrested (as shown in this video) for ?breaching the peace,? which is apparently British police code for ?offending Islam.?End of quote.

Heh. Quote.

Quote:[…]Tommy seems to have been arrested, tried, and sentenced all in the same morning, and was given this harsh sentence because he was deemed to have violated the terms of an earlier probation, which apparently included a prohibition on making videos outside courthouses. But if you believe that he got this sentence solely because of violating his probation, and that Amy was arrested and brutalized solely because of ?homophobia,? I?ve got a bridge to sell you.

[…]Britain is finished, and its death as a free society is by its own hand. These videos ought to shock the world and lead to an international denunciation of Britain?s slide into totalitarianism, and to calls for it to respect the human rights of all its citizens, not just Muslims. But they won?t, because Amy and Tommy are just ?Islamophobes,? and so am I, and such people have no rights that the political and media elites feel bound to respect.End of quote.

If you speak out against Islam you’re an Islamophobe. If you call attention to Muslims being treated favourably by the law you’re an Islamophobe. But one thing we know, the patience of ordinary people in Britain and around the world is fast running out.
