In the post-truth era, together we are stronger


A Scottish court ruled this week that Mark Meechan – aka Count Dankula – was guilty of being “grossly offensive” when he recorded a video of his pet dog doing a Nazi salute. He was convicted under the UK’s Communications Act 2003.

That’s right. Not only can anything you say be perceived as a “hate crime” even when no actual crime has been committed, you can now also be prosecuted for being “grossly offensive.”

No, this is not Orwell’s 1984. Welcome to Britain 2018, where not only is everything offensive, but everything is seemingly criminal too.

Over the last two weeks, we’ve seen numerous people prevented from entering the UK to speak at public events. The likes of Generation Identity co-founder Martin Sellner, political blogger Brittany Pettibone, Pegida founder Lutz Bachmann and Canadian journalist Lauren Southern. Their crime? They hold right wing conservative views, but that’s not the main story.

The main story here is something extremely serious: political correctness has evolved.

At the recent Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), political commentator and writer Ben Shapiro declared “the era of political correctness is over!” before claiming “…political correctness is dying a slow, painful, bloody, agonizing death. And all I can say is hell, yeah!”

If that were true, political correctness is sure not going down without a fight. A slow, painful, bloody fight.

Under the tyrannical dictatorship of political correctness, the penalty for blasphemy can be severe. You can even be attacked for things you don’t say, if SJW’s deem it a Microaggression.

A ‘Microaggression’ is defined as “the subtle but offensive comment or action directed at a minority or other non-dominant group, that is often unintentional or unconsciously reinforces a stereotype.”

In addition, microaggressions and hate speech cause “distress” and distress causes physical harm. This means all forms of ‘hate speech’ are a form of physical violence and therefore crimes. Because they are a form of physical violence, it is perfectly acceptable to respond to, or prevent such ‘hate speech’ with physical violence. “Microaggression” can be met with “Macro-aggression.”

In short: words are violence and can be met with physical violence.

This is the very basis of groups such as Antifa, who have publicly admitted “they view hate speech as violent, and for that, its activists have opted to meet violence with violence.”

This is how Antifa justify the physical assault on Tommy Robinson and his female camerawoman Lucy Brown, when just over a week ago they punched and kicked them whilst trying to steal their recording equipment. Shutting them down “by any means necessary.”

Political correctness has now evolved to the extent that words aren’t just violence which can be met with actual violence, words are now terrorism if deemed to be the wrong kind of words.

This was confirmed when Lauren Southern, the Canadian journalist, was detained and questioned by the Home Office under Section 7 of the Terrorism Act 2000. Eventually she was refused entry to the UK. The Home Office reasons were outlined as “perceived racism” for being involved in the distribution of flyers stating that “Allah is gay.”

To make sense of this you’ll need to step into the mind of a leftist for a second:

Claiming that “Allah is gay” is hate speech. Hate speech is violence. When a Conservative political journalist claims “Allah is gay” – that’s political hate speech. Political hate speech is political violence. Political violence is terrorism, ergo; political “hate speech” is terrorism.

That’s one hell of an evolution by anyone’s standards.

Not only do we live in a post-truth era, where ‘your truth’ is more important than ‘the truth’ and facts can be replaced with ‘alternative facts’ – but as we outlined a few weeks ago, the age of reason is dead. We are now unable to challenge and debate without the fear of violence and persecution. Your political views can now be deemed as terrorism.

This is extremely concerning. The left-leaning mainstream media was desperate to link Tommy Robinson to Finsbury Park attacker Darren Osborne, because they are desperate to curb the growing confidence of patriotism in the UK, especially because patriots are rising up in the correct way. Not through violence or “insurrection” as Labour deputy leader John McDonnell prefers from Labour supporters, but through politics. Through fledgling political parties like For Britain and the Democrats and Veterans Party.

The people are no longer being fooled, they are no longer silent.

Tommy Robinson led the way on Sunday in Hyde Park, when he delivered the speech that Martin Sellner was unable to. Seven million people have watched his videos on Facebook in one week alone. We continue to stand up to political violence and extremism this Saturday with the Football Lads Alliance (FLA) in Birmingham, where For Britain leader and director of Sharia Watch, Anne Marie Waters, is the keynote speaker – supported by many other patriots including Luke Nash-Jones of the People’s Charter in front of an expected crowd of between 10 to 15 thousand people.

More and more people are beginning to stand up for Britain and, as the FLA’s John Meighan would say, together we are stronger.

Shy Society.
