I've seen it coming for a long time, but just yesterday I discovered the first real tangeable indications that the UK is becoming an overtly fascist
Some of you may have heard about the English Defence League
phenomena. They are a group of English men and
women (of all colours) who have decided to stand up against radical Islam, which is growing within Britain. They have staged several protests in
various cities (the biggest of which was comprised of about 1000 protesters) and have spawned the emergence of the 'Welsh Defence League' and the
'Scottish Defence League'. These groups pose a fundamental threat to the current order of things, where multiculturalism, radical Islam and the new
world order shall not be questioned. The police handling of these demonstrations has been unfair at times, but mostly within the law and realm of
what's acceptable in a free country. Not anymore...
The Scottish Defence League demonstrated yesterday (Saturday 14th Nov) in Glasgow. Several members of the EDL discussion forum have reported that they
have had visits from Glasgow police, to their homes, warning them not to protest.
Here's what one protester reported:
Got a visit from Strathclyde police last night, They came all the way through from glasgow to tell me not to goto the march or I will be
arrested thrown in the cells in glasgow for the weekend then serve a week's remand. There was 4 CID and 2 Lothian and Borders. Obviously shows you
that there is someone or people monitoring what is being posted.
Firstly, these officers got the address and personal details of the member in question from their IP address
. Secondly, they threatened what
they had no reason to believe was anything other than a peaceful protester with jail-time simply for turning up. This happened to several other
It's my understanding that the police can only gather personal information from IP addresses, and act upon this information, if they have a
legitimate reason to believe the person in question might be plotting some unlawful act. They had no reason to believe this. It is also my
understanding that the right to protest is a human right within the UK.
Just think about the connotations of police using someone's IP address to track them down and threaten them with jail-time simply because the person
was intending to attend a lawful, peaceful protest. It's all very reminiscent of the Stasi
. It seems
we're not far from full Authoritarian Fascism.
