Are the free societies of the world doomed to fail?

 

The man MI5 didn’t think was dangerous: Killer used gym to radicalize youngsters, worked out with a terror suspect on the FBI watch list and was reported to the security services again LAST SUMMER. So goes the headline.
Today a guest post by Mustang:

An interesting recent article in the UK’s Daily Mail headlined as “MI-5 and Yard: We had him and let him go: a shocking admission that 2-years before London Bridge jihadi maniac went on rampage.”  What is missing is the logical follow-on subtitle: negligent officials arrested and charged in the deaths of innocents.

To my way of thinking, this is a large part of the problem: free societies never seem able to hold their elected officials and bureaucrats accountable for their gross incompetence.  I am wondering … why not?  Do they, or do they not, work for “the people?”

According to the report, “Khuram Butt, 27, was flagged up because of his extremist views and his case was examined by Scotland Yard and the security services.  A call was later made to the anti-terror hotline, warning of Butt’s increasingly extremist behavior, but officials downgraded the investigation because they did not suspect the married father of two was planning an attack.”

As it turns out, the dismissal was incompetent in the extreme, or if you prefer, criminally wanton due to thoughtless political correctness.  Similar instances have occurred in the United States, a few of which were honor killings of female children by their own father, some of whom have never been brought to justice.

What does it take to switch on the light —to finally move against what to me is an obvious conspiracy by too many extremists who seek to murder us.

We can do better than this, yet we sit back and allow un-named officials to draw their fat salaries and hefty pensions even after making horrendously consequential decisions.  It makes the admonition “see something—say something” laughable.  Perhaps what has happened to us is exactly what we deserve —for our complacency.

What is your point of view?

UK Police arrest man for Facebook ‘Hate Speech’ about migrants

Of course the result of silencing the population is that by the time they realize they are now the minority, living under Sharia law and all that goes with being a Muslim, it will be far too late to object and doing anything about it. Coming to our town soon. Already on our colleges. Dissent will not be tolerated.

British police have promised not to tolerate any speech that could cause offence on social media regarding Syrian migrants, after arresting a man for Facebook comments made about recent arrivals on his small Scottish Island.

The tiny Isle of Bute in the Firth of Clyde, which had a total population of just 6,498 in 2011, is expected to take in around 1,000 Syrian migrants, with 12 families already arriving since December last year (picture above).

However, commenting on the comparatively huge and sudden influx of Muslim immigrants online just became a very risky business for local residents.

Police have confirmed they have arrested a 41-year-old local man under the Communications Act, after receiving a report of a supposedly “offensive” comment made on Facebook regarding the migrants.

A police spokesman was unequivocal, that any harsh criticism of the Muslim influx would not be “tolerated”. Inspector Ewan Wilson from Dunoon police office told the Guardianfollowing the arrest:

“I hope that the arrest of this individual sends a clear message that Police Scotland will not tolerate any form of activity which could incite hatred and provoke offensive comments on social media”.

In December last year, it was reported that Facebook, Twitter and Google had teamed up with German law enforcement to delete “hate speech” within 24 hours, in what was seen as being a last-ditch effort to silence public dissent about the million plus uncontrolled arrivals.

In Denmark too, police have adopted a harsh stance. A veteran politician was arrested andhanded a steep fine earlier this month for tweeting about the European migrant crisis and Muslim anti-Semitism.

Polygamous families in UK to get more benefits

It is as if all of Europe cannot capitulate to the heathen influx of so-called “refugees” fast enough. Forget Western culture, forget that there is no way these countries can sustain the barbarians. Forget the groping and raping of European women. Forget Christianity. The cash flow cannot exit fast enough.

Men with more than one wife will qualify for extra benefits under the new welfare system, according to official House of Commons research.

Under the universal credit welfare system, which is not expected to be fully introduced until 2021, polygamous households will be rewarded with higher benefits, The Sunday Times reports.

In the UK, it is illegal to marry more than one person.

Polygamous marriages, largely confined to Muslim families, are only recognised in Britain if they took place in countries where they are legal, such as Middle Eastern states, Pakistan and Zambia.

There no official figures but it is estimated that there may be as many as 20,000 polygamous marriages in the British Muslim community.

British Man jailed for allowing smoking at home

Nick Hogan Criminal

Nick Hogan Criminal

A recent CNN U.S. poll indicates that a 56%  of people are worried about the Federal Government taking away our freedoms. Just wait until we get Obamacare.We only need to look across the pond for a view of our future. Hey, Barry, you stop first!

 
Nick Hogan has become the first person in Britain—and one of the first in the world—to be imprisoned for taking a stand against the smoking ban. He has been given a six month prison sentence for non-payment of a £10,000 fine. His crime was allowing people to smoke on his own property.
Both the fine and the prison sentence are completely disproportionate to the offence but it has been clear from the outset that the authorities intended to make an example of Hogan. The offence itself—”allowing people to smoke”—is absurd and has no place in a civilised society; the state has no right to force individuals to act as policemen.
