The freedom of speech will soon be but a memory in the once-great nation that gave us the Magna Carta. This is because the these initiatives against “hate speech” will almost certainly be used in a way that allows for the arrest and prosecution of Britons simply for having negative views of Islam. The Soros-funded “hate crime” training is, at its core, simply another attempt to impose sharia blasphemy laws. And the British government wants this. London’s Muslim Mayor Sadiq Khan wants this. Free expression? No — it might offend Muslims, and we can’t have that.
“UK Announces Police Cash Boost… for Soros-Backed ‘Hate Crime’ Training,” by Virginia Hale, Breitbart, July 10, 2018 (thanks to Inexion):
Unveiling plans to step up its war on “hate speech”, the Home Office has promised a police cash boost to give call handlers “specialist training” developed partly by a George Soros-backed NGO on how to give people reporting so-called hate crime “the vital support they need”.
“The programme will help call handlers to effectively identify if a hate crime has been committed and provide a professional and empathetic response for people who may have suffered personal abuse,” according to the ministry’s website.
Police Oracle reports that £20,000 of taxpayers’ money will be spent on training delivered by the National Police Chiefs’ Council in partnership with Facing All The Facts, an organisation funded by globalist billionaire George Soros which works with social media companies like Google along with law enforcement agencies across Europe to monitor and fight “hate”.
“It is part of the government’s crucial work to tackle all forms of hate crime, support victims and protect the vulnerable from this horrific abuse,” the Home Office said.
Later this year, the government will release an updated Hate Crime Action Plan outlining further measures the state intends to take to tackle “the five hate crime strands – race, religion, sexual orientation, disability and transgender identities”.
The action plan, the first version of which was published shortly after the Brexit vote in summer 2016, defines success as maximising the number of “hate” incidents reported by members of the public, instructing police and various monitoring agencies to actively solicit complaints.
Sajid Javid said: “Hate crimes are totally unacceptable and have no place in British society. I understand the fear, anguish and anger they can cause.
“Those who have the courage to report these vile crimes deserve as much support as possible. That is why we have provided funding to give police call handlers expert training to spot the signs and respond compassionately.
“I will also be asking my Anti-Muslim hate crime and Anti-Semitism roundtables to identify what more we can do to stamp out hate crime,” the newly-installed Home Secretary said.
Announcing their expansion, the Home Office said that the previous work of ‘hate crime’ roundtables includes the creation of a “guide to moderate online hate content” and a “guide to support hate crime victims”.
It also highlighted “ongoing collaboration between the Anti-Muslim Hatred Working Group and IPSO (Independent Press Standards Organisation)” in the aid of ensuring “sensitive reporting” around issues relating to state-designated victim groups.
While the number of arrests in Britain has fallen dramatically in recent years, despite large increases in recorded crime, arrests over “hateful” comments posted online have risen by as much as 877 percent in some parts of England.
With dedicated “hate crime coordinators” in place across the country, police dedication to driving up the number of so-called hate crime reports is such that forces in the northwest of England held a weeklong campaign out of concern that officers “see a reduction in reports of hate crime at this time of year”….
