Police are being deployed by Humberside Police in the UK to call up social media users to ask them to explain their thinking behind their controversial posts/likes.
He added: “Although none of the tweets were criminal, I said to Mr Miller that the limerick is the kind of thing that upsets the transgender community. I warned him that if it escalates we will have to take further action. If someone comes forward and says: ‘I’m the victim of a hate incident and it’s really upsetting me’, then we have to investigate”.
After Mr Miller questioned why the complainant was being described as a “victim” if no crime had been committed, the officer told him: “We need to check your thinking”.
What the hell is happening? People being called up by coppers because they liked or retweeted a limerick. You have got to be kidding me.
While I do not share Mr Miller’s proclivity to retweet or ‘like’ content of this nature, I do find it alarming that police resources are being used to curb someone for liking or retweeting content which another might find offensive.
The power the authoritarian-left is beginning to wield on western democracies is very concerning.
