Britain’s real hate crime scandal

Britain is in the grip of an epidemic, apparently. An epidemic of hate. Barely a day passes without some policeman or journalist telling us about the wave of criminal bigotry that is sweeping through the country. It’s been bad for years, they say, but has become worse since the EU referendum. Police forces tell us that hate crime has ‘soared’ in recent weeks; there’s been an ‘explosion of blatant hate’, according to some newspapers. Twenty-first-century Britain, it seems, is a pretty rancid, rage-fuelled place.

    Here is a quote from the article that defines what is now considered a ‘hate crime”.
    However, I am sure that white non-mooslime males will NOT be able to use their PERCEPTION and/or FEELING as “evidence” of hate crimes.

    The police’s ‘Hate Crime Operational Guidance’ now stresses that the victim’s perception is the deciding factor in whether something is measured as a hate crime. No evidence is required. ‘Evidence of… hostility is not required for an incident or crime to be recorded as a hate crime or hate incident,’ the guidance says. ‘[The] perception of the victim, or any other person, is the defining factor… the victim does not have to justify or provide evidence of their belief, and police officers or staff should not directly challenge this perception.’ So you don’t need actual evidence to prove hate crime, just a feeling. The police are discouraged from asking for evidence. This is reflected in the policies of individual constabularies. So the ‘Hate Crime Procedure’ of the Surrey Police says ‘apparent lack of motivation as the cause of an incident is not relevant as it is the perception of the victim or any other person that counts’. No clear hateful motivation? Doesn’t matter.

      Once it’s on the books as a hate crime, the police then come under scrutiny as to how many of these result in a conviction. Less than 99% will enrage the social justice army. Prosecution cases will become artful concoctions.

      So, all one needs to do to screw someone over big time is declare themselves a victim, snivel loudly and point at the person you wish to destroy, and cry… H8ter!

    Hate is in the eye of the beholder. Journalists are the worst hate offenders.
