UK Liberty GB party candidate Weston arrested for quoting Winston Churchill

Great Britain reaches a new low in political correctness. So now Winston Churchill would be arrested if he were alive today. Winston had it right back in the day. But forget that. The thought police are in full control.

Quoting from the great WWII statesman Winston Churchill’s literary work, for which he won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1953, has become a criminal offence in the UK—as it seems.

Paul Weston, chairman of the UK’s Liberty GB party and a candidate in the 22 May European Parliament Elections, was arrested by the British police on 26 April for quoting a passage from Winston Churchill’s book.

At around 2pm, Weston was addressing the passers-by on the street from the steps of Winchester Guildhall with a megaphone. He quoted the following passage about Islam from Churchill book, The River War:

“How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property – either as a child, a wife, or a concubine – must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men. Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the faith: all know how to die but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith.”

Reportedly a woman, who found the passage “disgusting”, came out of the Guildhall and called the police.

Responding to her call, six or seven police officers arrived and questioned Weston for about 40 minutes.

At about 3pm, they arrested and searched him, and took him away in a police van.

    First he was arrested for giving a speech without a permit and then they came after him for what he said. Now that the US is instituting these “free speech” zones I wonder how long it will be before we see this happen here.


  2. Ducky's here Says:

    You left this part out “He was detained after failing to comply with a request by police to move on under the powers of a dispersal order.”

    In other words he didn’t have a permit.
    Same thing would have occurred in the U.S.

    The fact that he was quoting a bigot like Churchill (“God save the peerage”) is irrelevant.

      Oh, free speech requires a permit? Go to Center City in Phila. Hear the nut cases rant and rave, hear how the end of the world in coming. Churchill understood the menace that is here. Stay well.

    Explains why the fraud ‘acting prez’ sent the Churchill bust back the UK … who don’t want it either (having been sucked farther down into the hole of inequity … ‘following the footsteps of anti-colonialist and pro-communist.’
    Maybe it’s what the bust stands for:
    “Socialism is the philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy.” -WC
    It is not alone that property, in all its forms, is struck at, but that liberty, in all its forms, is challenged by the fundamental conceptions of socialism.” -WC
    “The vice of capitalism is that it stands for the unequal sharing of blessings; whereas the virtue of socialism is that it stands for the equal sharing of misery.” -WC
    * If you read some of the comments about why a.k.a. Barack sent it back, some ‘believe’ it was because Churchill imprisoned his father … but we don’t know ‘who his father really is’ so that doesn’t fly! – but, it works on the ’emotions’ and pacifies those who base their thinking only on ‘how it makes them feel’ rather than ‘shine the light of truth on it’ and “dealing with that!”

    Humans, supposedly the only species with the ability to reason. Apparently it is only true of a minority of humans.


  6. Always On Watch Says:

    To this the West has come — and not only in Great Britain.

    How much longer can Western civilization exist?
