A reminder that Britain does not have freedom of speech, especially when it runs contrary to suicidal politically correct agenda.
A man from Manchester in the United Kingdom has been sentenced to 180 hours unpaid work and a 12-month community order after posting comments that were said to be “grossly offensive” towards Muslims.
Stephen Bennett, 39, reportedly took to the Greater Manchester Police’s Facebook page to post comments “concerning an Asian woman” as well as another which was “likely to be offensive to Muslims”.
While the Greater Manchester Police refused to disclose the details of the case to Breitbart London, he is said to have also written: “Don’t come over to this country and treat it like your own. Britain first,” according to the Manchester Evening News.
The father of seven, whose mother-in-law and sister-in-law are Muslim, was visited at his home at 8am by police officers who arrested him under the anti-free speech Malicious Communications Act. He is reported to have said to the officers: “Is this about that Muslim thing on Facebook? I’m getting locked up for sticking up for my own country.”
The legislation, brought forward under Tony Blair’s Labour government in 2003, states that a person is guilty of an offensive if they:
send by means of a public electronic communications network a message or other matter that is grossly offensive or of an indecent, obscene or menacing character; or;
cause any such message or matter to be so sent.
A person is guilty of an offence if, for the purpose of causing annoyance, inconvenience or needless anxiety to another, he—
(a)sends by means of a public electronic communications network, a message that he knows to be false,
(b)causes such a message to be sent; or
(c)persistently makes use of a public electronic communications network.
(3)A person guilty of an offence under this section shall be liable, on summary conviction, to imprisonment for a term not exceeding six months or to a fine not exceeding level 5 on the standard scale, or to both.
(4)Subsections (1) and (2) do not apply to anything done in the course of providing a programme service (within the meaning of the Broadcasting Act 1990 (c. 42)).
The loosely worded law has caused legal experts to question the “menacing” nature of the legislation.
My god, Britain has gone bat-shit crazy. Muzzies have flooded their country with violence, hatespeech, and jihad, but Bennett’s outrage over the enemy within is considered more of a threat.
The judge said his comments ran “the risk of stirring up racial hatred in the present climate” and sentenced him to a 12-month community order with 180 hours unpaid work.
The judge added: “Your remarks damaged the community in which you live, and it’s the community that you must repay.”
This is the epitome of gall:
A Muslim witness told the Manchester court that Mr. Bennett’s comments were “irresponsible”, incited hatred, and could be a “potential tool for radicalization”.
Anjem Choudary is a muzzie imam in London and Britain’s most rabid Islamic shitbag. He and his contingent of jihadists murder British soldiers in the streets and bomb civilian transportation. For allah, of course.
Choudary’s declaration for Britain:
“I also believe firmly in the concept of Izhar ud-Deen i.e. the domination of the world by Islam… I believe that one day Britain and indeed every part of the world (including the rest of Europe, USA, China and Russia etc…) will be governed by and under the authority of the Muslims implementing Islamic Law. This is something that I believe in and strive to see Insha’Allah.”
In comparison, Bennett’s dissent over what’s happening in his country was swiftly squashed by jack-booted Brit authorities.
Don’t hold your breath if you expect Britain to imprison this shitbag for a good stretch or better still, deport him. I’m betting he’ll get a slap on the wrist.
Author Melanie Phillips sums it up:
……the establishment is so heavily imbued by a deadly cocktail of political correctness, multiculturalism and ‘human rights’ law that, far from curbing Islamic extremism, it has actually fanned the flames.
Over the past decade and more, the judges have made it all but impossible to police Britain’s borders against undesirables or throw extremists out of the country.
Universities have shamefully refused to crack down on extremists on campus, even though countless Muslim students are being radicalized there by Islamist speakers – with no fewer than four university Islamic Society presidents having been involved in major acts of terrorism.
Idiotically, politicians cravenly attempting to defuse Islamic rage by appeasing the Muslim community have funded organizations that have turned out to be extreme.
Even more extraordinarily, to this day the Government is employing radical Islamists in Whitehall – as political advisers on curbing Islamic extremism.
There are reasons for the renewed jihad against the West, most of which can be attributed to the pervasive chickenshittery.
