Freedom of speech was killed yesterday. All criticism is now a “hate crime”

Killing free speech

Yesterday was a catastrophe for Britain. Alison Saunders, Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), the most senior public prosecutor in England and Wales, has decided in her wisdom that on-line “hate speech” against any person or group is the equivalent of a physical assault. According to Ms Saunders, police should investigate any “hate speech” as a “hate crime” and judges should sentence anyone found guilty as if they had committed a physical assault.

But what is a “hate crime”? Well, the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) already defines hate crime as ‘any offence which is perceived by the victim, or any other person, to be motivated by a hostility or prejudice’. So, if you consider yourself offended by anything I write, or even if you are not offended but you feel someone else might have been offended, then I am automatically guilty of a “hate crime”.

Apparently this definition of a “hate crime” created a ludicrous situation last year when the Home Secretary Amber Rudd’s speech to the Tory party conference was investigated as a ‘hate crime’ after an Oxford academic — who wasn’t even there — complained about what he felt was its anti-immigrant message three months later. (West Midlands police found no evidence of a hate crime but recorded it as a ‘non-crime hate incident’.)

Alison Saunders has issued guidance to police, prosecutors and judges. To give you an idea of subjects that will now be taboo, the new policy documents cover different strands of hate crime: racist and religious; disability; and homophobic, biphobic and transphobic. They also say that victims of biphobic hate crime, aimed at bisexual people, have different needs and experiences compared to those suffering anti-gay and transphobic offences.

So, if I make a comment or joke about say men who like putting their penises into the bottoms of other men and someone complains because either they are offended or they think someone else might be offended, this will be considered by the police, prosecutors and judges to be the same as if I had taken a baseball bat and attacked a couple of homosexual men in the street.

Surely Alison Saunders must be the only person in Britain who cannot see how utterly absurd this policy is?

But I suspect she doesn’t care as the real reason for this policy is to kill free speech once and for all so nobody dares criticise our rulers’ policy of race replacement and nobody dares criticise anyone from a certain religious group who seem to have a slight predilection towards violence.

Killing Kevin Crehan

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote a blog about Kevin Crehan. He was sentenced to one year in prison for putting some bacon on a mosque door handle and shouting some abuse. In December 2016 while in prison Mr Crehan mysteriously died. We were told at the time that he had probably committed suicide, though many people believed he had been murdered by some of our friends from our favourite religion. An autopsy was carried out in January 2017 and then Crehan’s body was hastily cremated thus destroying all evidence about how he died.

In spite of over six months passing since the autopsy, no results have been released. One could suspect that had some white prisoners been suspected of murdering someone from the Religion of Happiness, then there would have been outrage in the media, widespread protests and the autopsy results would have been published within a few days of the death.

Anyway, one of my readers wrote to the prison service asking when we would get any information about how Crehan died. Here’s the bureaucratic crap from the letter he received. Apparently when a white prisoner is possibly murdered by inmates from a certain religious group, it takes at least a year for the prison service to find out what happened:

22 August 2017

Our ref: Reference: FOI 179

Dear Mr B*********,

Subject: Freedom of Information Requests

Thank you for your email of 29 July 2017. Your request has been handled under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA) and information that is held by PPO has been provided. You requested the following information.

Kevin Crehan died in custody on 27/12/2016 and was cremated on 20/01/2017. Why eight months later has no cause of death been released to the press?’

As we have received several requests about the death of Mr Crehan we are providing a response that answers all queries within those requests.

I can confirm the PPO is currently investigating the death of Mr. Crehan. We were notified of his death on 27 December 2016 and began an investigation into the circumstances. This was then suspended on 5 January 2017 because of a related police investigation, and because we did not know the cause of Mr Crehan’s death. Both of these issues are outside our control and do sometimes affect our fatal incident investigations, meaning they are suspended for several months.

In June, we were told that the police investigation had concluded and that we were given the results of post-mortem examinations, which helped us consider how to handle the case. In light of these developments, we unsuspended our investigation on 12 June and set a new target date for our initial report of 5 December 2017. This new date takes into account the period we were unable to work on the case when it was suspended.

There are no delays to the investigation for reasons other than the above and we will meet the new target date we have set unless there are other issues outside of our control.

As we are still investigating Mr Crehan’s death we are not in a position to share our conclusions, but please be advised that we publish all fatal incident investigations on our website when our report is finalised and the inquest has taken place, including our conclusion and recommendations.

We have been asked if we know the cause of Mr Crehan’s death. It is not the PPO’s role to determine this. Our role is to investigate the circumstances surrounding the death and identify lessons the prison can learn. The cause of death is determined by a coroner and jury following an inquest. We have not yet been told had the date of Mr Crehan’s inquest.

You have the right to appeal our response if you think it is incorrect. Details can be found in the ‘How to Appeal’ section attached at the end of this letter.

Yours sincerely

Daniel Crockford

    The prisons will be filling up with keyboard warriors whilst actual warriors fresh back from Raqqa are running around free as birds from home to mosque to benefits office.

    Be interesting to play them at their own game and complain about on-line Korans and pretty much anything that spews out of the average Salafist/Deobandi musl!m’s keyboard. Twitter will be all a-flutter.

    We do not know the cause of Mr Crehen’s death but if suicide, the most common way is by hanging.In about 1982 I knew of a printer Jimmy Goodyear who got involved who involved with counterfeiting money turned Queens evidence against an Irish gang operating in London. He hung himself just before his release.None who knew him believed he did the view was the IRA had topped him. The Holmes story The Resident Patient is a good reference point.

    The Crown Prosecution Service has many left wing people in high positions its previous Director joined the Labour Party.It seems now that its seeking to interpret and redefine existing laws in ways never intended by Parliament. It has people in executive positions who would put more effort into prosecuting online views and opinions than they would an acid attack or the murder of a child.
    Alison Saunders Current CPS Director has sadly not been shaped by nature to look as a women would like to look and seems to be attracted to levelling down ideology.
    Back in 2014 she wrote an article in the Times which defended the separate trials of two Coronation Street actors Michael Le Vell and William Roache on very dubious unrelated sex allegations.Both ended in acquittals.
    Many suspected she had pushed these cases to court to divert attention from a major Muslim grooming gang trial going on at the same time.

    dare say that it will focus on those whom are to the right of centre rather than those on the left of centre. The Judeo/Christian will be blamed and set up. People wonder why history repeats itself, its because its the same satanic spirit at work behind the scenes but people are just too dumbed downto see it. I welcome discussion and views from people different to me, I have many friends whom oppose me on certain issues but because we are friends and democratic we appreciate each others right to an opinion and would defend each others right. Its not hate speech to not like certain things and have an opinion on them. It may be hate speech if one seeks to harm/abuse/insult those people but quite frankly there are much bigger issues going on in the UK than keyboard warriors,we have around 3 million illegals in our country and they are still getting in, when they are found by the police they are given an address to report to and they never turn up, we have increasing street gang violence, prison gang violence, FGM on the rise with not one prosecution and the list goes on and on but the Police seem interested in soft crime to boost their polls such as keyboard warriors and supermarket signs. I wonder how many grooming gangs are at work undetected or detected and nobody dare do anything about it yet with them all waiting for someone else to do it first incase they’re called racist. Its a sad day for what once was great nation. The UK police used to be respected the world over but now people laugh at our police force and think them to be a joke. This is not the average coppers fault, its the management. We need to hire some American cheifs like Sheriff Joe or Mayor Gulliani to show us how to police effectively and leave the supermarkets to sort out their signs.

    We thought the snowflakes would eventually melt and drain away but unfortunately we didn’t allow for a blizzard ! I fear it’s too late as all the institutions are now part of the full libtard, don’t question, don’t dispute society.

    These are indeed very sad days, the first victim of a Totalitarian State is The Truth and the means of conveying that Truth, Free Speech.

    Over the weekend I found and read this lecture from the Mises Institute from back in 2005. It is enough to send shivers down my spine. Here are some comments and the link below, remember this was form 2005, mainly refers to the US but the same has happened here in the UK and Western Europe.

    “My purpose today is to make just two main points: (1) To show why Nazi Germany was a socialist state, not a capitalist one. And (2) to show why socialism, understood as an economic system based on government ownership of the means of production, positively requires a totalitarian dictatorship.

    The identification of Nazi Germany as a socialist state was one of the many great contributions of Ludwig von Mises.”

    “What Mises identified was that private ownership of the means of production existed in name only under the Nazis and that the actual substance of ownership of the means of production resided in the German government. For it was the German government and not the nominal private owners that exercised all of the substantive powers of ownership: it, not the nominal private owners, decided what was to be produced, in what quantity, by what methods, and to whom it was to be distributed, as well as what prices would be charged and what wages would be paid, and what dividends or other income the nominal private owners would be permitted to receive. The position of the alleged private owners, Mises showed, was reduced essentially to that of government pensioners.”(Our so called privately owned companies and businesses are effectively controlled by the State, PC and laws such as the one above means on paper we own but in reality we must conduct all business according to Government Dictat,we are trapped and must pay taxes to the Government to fund their control of us.)

    “If the individual is a means to the ends of the State, so too, of course, is his property. Just as he is owned by the State, his property is also owned by the State.”

    The combination of price controls with this further set of controls constitutes the de facto socialization of the economic system. For it means that the government then exercises all of the substantive powers of ownership.

    “This was the socialism instituted by the Nazis. And Mises calls it socialism on the German or Nazi pattern, in contrast to the more obvious socialism of the Soviets, which he calls socialism on the Russian or Bolshevik pattern.”

    (Price controls are occurring today, via Central Bank control of Stock Markets and of Commodities, is for as much as they can without overtly displaying their corruption to the general public.Rebounds in manipulated prices only exaggerate volatility and cause instability as we will see in due course in the next few years)

    2Now I think that a fundamental fact that explains the all-round reign of terror found under socialism is the incredible dilemma in which a socialist state places itself in relation to the masses of its citizens. On the one hand, it assumes full responsibility for the individual’s economic well-being. Russian or Bolshevik-style socialism openly avows this responsibility — this is the main source of its popular appeal. On the other hand, in all of the ways one can imagine, a socialist state makes an unbelievable botch of the job. It makes the individual’s life a nightmare.”

    “It follows that the rulers of a socialist state must live in terror of the people. By the logic of their actions and their teachings, the boiling, seething resentment of the people should well up and swallow them in an orgy of bloody vengeance. The rulers sense this, even if they do not admit it openly; and thus their major concern is always to keep the lid on the citizenry.”(Hence laws to silence the people as we see today.)

    “Consequently, it is true but very inadequate merely to say such things as that socialism lacks freedom of the press and freedom of speech. Of course, it lacks these freedoms. If the government owns all the newspapers and publishing houses, if it decides for what purposes newsprint and paper are to be made available, then obviously nothing can be printed which the government does not want printed. If it owns all the meeting halls, no public speech or lecture can be delivered which the government does not want delivered. But socialism goes far beyond the mere lack of freedom of press and speech.

    A socialist government totally annihilates these freedoms. It turns the press and every public forum into a vehicle of hysterical propaganda in its own behalf, and it engages in the relentless persecution of everyone who dares to deviate by so much as an inch from its official party line.”(I think we have just witnessed the Annihilation of our Freedom of speech)

    “The reason for these facts is the socialist rulers’ terror of the people. To protect themselves, they must order the propaganda ministry and the secret police to work ’round the clock. The one, to constantly divert the people’s attention from the responsibility of socialism, and of the rulers of socialism, for the people’s misery. The other, to spirit away and silence anyone who might even remotely suggest the responsibility of socialism or its rulers — to spirit away anyone who begins to show signs of thinking for himself. It is because of the rulers’ terror, and their desperate need to find scapegoats for the failures of socialism, that the press of a socialist country is always full of stories about foreign plots and sabotage, and about corruption and mismanagement on the part of subordinate officials, and why, periodically, it is necessary to unmask large-scale domestic plots and to sacrifice major officials and entire factions in giant purges.”

    “I think I have shown that socialism — actual socialism — is totalitarian by its very nature.”(We are now entering the Totalitarian stage here in the UK. 12 Years after this was written)

    “And in conformity with this attitude, since the collapse of the stock market bubble, which was in fact created by the Federal Reserve’s policy of credit expansion and then pricked by its temporary abandonment of that policy, government prosecutors have adopted what appears to be a particularly vengeful policy toward executives guilty of financial dishonesty, as though their actions were responsible for the widespread losses resulting from the collapse of the bubble. Thus the former head of a major telecommunications company was recently given a twenty-five year prison sentence. Other top executives have suffered similarly.”(The latest stock market bubble will be pricked in the same way.)

    Two very major ways of fighting for freedom are to educate oneself to the point of being able to speak and write as articulately in its defense as do the scholars associated with this institute or, if one does not have the time or inclination to pursue such activity, then to financially support the Institute in its vital work to whatever extent one can.

    2It is possible to turn the tide. No single person can do it. But a large and growing number of intelligent people, educated in the cause of economic freedom, and speaking up and arguing in its defense whenever possible, is capable of gradually forming the attitudes of the culture and thus of the nature of its political and economic system.”(After 12 years we have failed to turn the tide, a dark day indeed)

    As Winston Churchill said,
    “Democracy means that when there’s a knock in the door at 3 am, it’s probably the milkman.”

    I expect that from now on it will not be the Milkman!!

  • I must strongly object to you posting the name “Alison Saunders” in your blog.
    This may lead readers to google “Alison Saunders” + “high level paedo cover-up”
    She definitely didn’t quash the Greville Janner investigation. Even though she said she did!
    I would now like to formally report her action/non action, as a hate crime. Yes anything is a hate crime,
    if you look hard enough.

    I thought that Kim JongUn was running the DPP.
    Then I realised that they just look similar.
