A nightmare haunted those unlucky enough to find themselves behind the Iron Curtain which the Soviet Union clanged down across Europe following WWII. The nightmare was awakening to find a circle of hard-faced men around the bed—the secret police come to whisk them away in the middle of the night.
After Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher defeated the Evil Empire of the Soviet Union, some imagined that freedom was safe. I suspect few imagined that in a future Britain:
“The police are now arresting people based on mere speech in social media,...”
“Two men were detained in the middle of the night after they expressed anger at Muslims on Twitter. The Independent quotes police as saying:
"We began inquiries into the comments and at around 3.20am two men, aged 23 and 22, were detained at two addresses in Bristol.” [In Britain, Police Arrest Twitter And Facebook Users If They Make Anti-Muslim Statements, By Jim Edwards | Business Insider, May 26, 2013]
The police made the arrests in response to Muslim leaders. So now British police are acting as quislings for growing Muslim power—preventing the expression of the righteous anger which is necessary to awake the British people so they can take action to protect themselves. If it is illegal to even talk about the Muslim danger, it becomes much more difficult to muster the political will to end Muslim immigration and stop the growing implementation of Sharia law.
Americans may breathe a sigh of relief that this isn’t and can’t happen here. After all, we have the Bill of Rights, we haven’t been disarmed like the British people, and we still have relatively few Muslims, right?
But Americans mustn’t be complacent. Already government violates much of the Constitution and the courts go along. Democrats have stepped up the fight against our Second Amendment rights. And, who knows how many Muslims will enter if the Gang of Eight Amnesty and Immigration Surge passes.
Like the British government, our government is not representing the true interests of the American people. Already radical Muslims have visited the Obama White House hundreds of times and our government is cooperating with racist Hispanic Reconquistas to get more Hispanics in government positions. Worst of all, Attorney General Eric Holder has proclaimed the expanded hate crimes legislation would not protect whites. Forget equal protection under the law: this legislation is to be used against whites.
Freedom-loving Americans must keep an eye on what Europeans are doing because many here seek to follow in their footsteps. “Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty” .
