“Man arrested for posting image of burning poppy on Twitter”

Question:  is the fact that I’m offended by your having taken offense also cause for an arrest?

Note, this happened in the UK. But it’s the very kind of thing Hillary and Obama have supported in an effort to tweak our First Amendment and end all the hatred that that odious amendment, as currently understood, unleashes into a world where hatred cannot be tolerated.  We must be intolerant of intolerance!

As for what comes to constitute hatred or intolerance — which we must not allow to stand! — well, we’ll let you know when we see it.  By putting you in cuffs, most likely.

  1. “Kent Police said in a statement that the man, from Aylesham, was detained last night on suspicion of making malicious telecommunications and that he was in custody awaiting interview.”

    The future must not belong to those who slander the random and capricious list of sacred cows raised up by the powerful, the popular, and their protected grievance mobs.

  2. If you stupid bastards in the UK gave one tiny little shit about your freedom of speech you’d have choked Twitter with images of burning poppies by now and heartfelt promises to vote against any would be MP or local politician anyone who declares approval of this arrest or insufficiently damns it. Your collective outrage should have people on Twitter looking at a ‘fail whale’ right now. But you guys would probably rather complain about Thatcher’s era some more. Who does that offend? Who cares right?

  3. I don’t see a burning poppy: I see a spider.

  4. My image of the UK now is basically Russell Brand saying that America should vote for Obama because the USA’s decisions effect the rest of the world and George W. Bush is retarded.

    Of course my image of the USA is even worse because they(we?) listened to that greasy peeling scrotum scab TWICE, once after actually seeing just how much Obama sucks at being president.

  5. Stop the hate or we’ll KILL you.

    You can’t parody this.

  6. Greetings:

    Also from the formerly United Kingdom today, some radical imammy-dude’s appeal of his deportation to his home country of Jordan was overturned by a formerly British court because of concerns that the Imammy-dude’s fellow Islamaniacs might not treat him in the way to which he has become accustomed in the UK. So, there’s that !!!

    Not that I don’t respect men of the cloth, even the camel cloth, but I can’t help but wonder how much of the dole the Imammy-dude takes in each month.
