Free speech under fire after Finsbury

Finsbury Mosque transportation related incident .

So, after the arrest of Darren Osborne, the man who drove a van into a group of Muslims outside Finsbury Park Mosque on Sunday night, the police have now made a second arrest.

For what, you may ask? After all, the police said they believed Osborne acted alone. Have they now found he had an accomplice, someone who helped organise the attack, or played a role in radicalising/lobotomising Osborne? Not exactly. Thirty-seven-year-old Richard Evans, the second man to be arrested in relation to the attack, did have a familial connection to events on Sunday – he is the son of the owner of Pontyclun Van Hire, which leased the van to Osborne on Saturday. But Evans was not arrested for any practical involvement, unwitting or otherwise, in Sunday’s attack. He was arrested for saying something on Facebook. Or better still, he was arrested for mouthing off on Facebook.

    I am now of the opinion that at this point, the British authorities are just looking for any excuse to scratch that totalitarian itch.

    Can you hear the sound of the goose steppers. I can.

  • The thing that boils my blood most is, what the f**k does “racism” have to do with it? Apart from the fact that Islam is not a race (does Cat Stevens look like he belongs to a different race?), these morons have never asked the most obvious question about “racism”: if this is about race, then why aren’t people complaining about Sikhs, or Baha’i’s, or Hindus, or Buddhists, or Confusionists, or Rastafarians, or Shintos, and the list goes on and on?

    The more the morons keep mis-characterizing it as “racism”, they more they will attract real racists thinking that joining our protest will be a legitimate outlet for their bigotry. Stop sending us racists, we don’t want them! Politicians and Legislators on the Left are deliberately inciting a “race war” that has no basis in reality because I don’t think anybody is doing this for racial reasons. Politicians are defaming the characters of an entire class of its citizens — I don’t think anything like this has occurred in the West before since 1939.
