So we don’t know what was said to judge for ourselves if any lines were crossed.
The moment when the government decides that it’s the sole arbitrator of what’s allowed to be spoken (not the civil society itself), is the moment you live within a tyranny.
Check this out, here’s a story (h/t: Vlad) about a person arrested for saying ”racist things” against Muslims, but the story contains not one mention of what was actually said. It’s full censorship on display, with the reader left completely unable to discern the actual facts of the incident. Stunning, but that is what modern day journalism has descended to.
North West Infidel protestor caught on tape shouting racist abuse in Blackburn
She pleaded guilty to religiously aggravated threatening behaviour and was given a conditional discharge for 18 months.
She was also told to pay £85 costs and a £15 victim surcharge.
Catherine Allan, prosecuting, said Arrowsmith had travelled by train to take part in the town centre demo.
“She told police she was demonstrating against Islam because they were ‘grooming and murdering our children’,” Ms Allan said.
“She went on to express some extremist views about Muslims.”
Gary McAnulty, defending, said his client previously attended English Defence League demonstrations. He said there was no one else present except for the police.
He said: “This was the first time she had attended anything organised by the North West Infidels.
“They are a splinter group and very right wing compared to the EDL. It would appear there was no one there except the police.
“She was filmed making the comments and then went home.”
