Fascism in the UK: Britain’s War on Free Speech

It’s almost hard to believe, but the same country that gave us the Magna Carta, capitalism, Monty Python and the Sex Pistols is now introducing throwing people in jail for reporting on a crime — or even telling an off-color joke.

Seen in this image, an appropriation of Steven Crowder’s infamous “Change My Mind” videos, are citizen journalist Tommy Robinson and self-described “professional shitposter” Count Dankula. The latter was fined by a Scottish court for making an offensive joke on YouTube, and the former was recently jailed on a “disturbing the peace” charge for reporting on the growing problem of radical “grooming gangs” in the country.

Both of these persecutions make one thing abundantly clear — the country that essentially invented classical liberalism (think free speech and free trade) now has a government that has little more than an absolute loathing for it.

At this rate, it won’t be long before the film V for Vendetta, which appropriately takes place in London, seems tame by the actual reality that is British authoritarianism. Perhaps the only thing the film got wrong was that the threat to freedom of expression didn’t come from the conservative wing — but from the radical cultural Marxists that have infected every layer of government and academia there.
