And Then, It’s Just Not Funny...

I’m sure you’re all well up to speed with the latest insanity gripping this land of ours.

At a time when some fellow of colour has been ‘singing’ about burning the PM’s house down, an opposition MP   talks of lynching a Tory minister and both remain free and untroubled, and let’s not go near anything our newest bestest ever friends have to say about us, we finally see some decisive, strong action and common sense coming from our judicial system with at least one judge willing to step up to the plate and get tough by finding some fellow guilty of a hate crime. Oh joyous day!

And that hate crime would be? Oh, right, some poor sod posted a video, that he stupidly thought would be a bit of fun, of his dog lifting its right leg. That would be a right front leg by the way. Allegedly, the clip has had something like three mill. views with nary a complaint. I also see that no jury was deemed necessary and the judge did all the ‘hard graft’ alone.
”...Sheriff Derek O’Carroll found him guilty of a charge under the Communications Act that he posted a video on social media and YouTube which was grossly offensive because it was “anti-Semitic and racist in nature” and was aggravated by religious prejudice.”

Sentencing is due in a little bit after a while to come and will be announced from way down in the rabbit hole we’re all falling down.

For anyone just back from the dark side of the moon, here are a couple of clicky thingies that’ll lead  you to the sorry tale. Tail? Read the comments and feel the rage  fermenting against the machine.



Interestingly, in just the past week, whenever I’ve passed a dog sitting tethered outside a store, almost all have wagged their tails and raised a leg. I thought these were gestures of friendship but I now know they have far naztier connotations. Bad, bad dogs!

Anyhoo, be warned, if you have a ‘humorous’ clip of your puppy dog or kitten cat or anything really, think twice before popping it on that Tube-of-You. It might be fun to you but someone, somewhere is looking and waiting to be outraged and get you banged-up, okay? Better still, just sit on the sofa and watch cooking shows and the BBC news to keep-up with what they want you to know.

I’m betting that, even as I type, there’s someone ‘up there’ figuring the least troublesome way to shutdown all Blogging platforms and restrict that social media thingy.

What's going to happen to the pug wot did the salute? Is he/she being sent down or being put down?

Truly, one lives in a totalitarian state when you can be jailed for a joke. It makes a joke of the law.

Dog raises right paw - jail
Rape underage girls en masse a la Telford and Rotherham - you go free, because it's too much bother apparently.

And don’t forget that if you’re a native white Brit and jailed for a hate crime, because of the company those in authority will ensure you have to keep inside, your chance of doing the time and getting out in one piece can be extremely slim.
