The UK probably isn’t the first country to spring to mind when one thinks of political oppression. The Freedom Index (which measures freedom of the press but provides a glimpse a freedoms generally) rates us at 33rd out of 180, an improvement on 2018, where we sat at 40. That might be an improved picture, but that’s not a full picture of civil liberties in the country at present. The real picture is far less positive; definitive, abject political oppression is taking place on a broad scale in Britain, and very few seem to notice.
First, a definition of political oppression (or repression). In Wiki, it is summed up as a “state entity controlling a citizenry by force for political reasons, particularly for the purpose of restricting or preventing their ability to take part in the political life of a society thereby reducing their standing among their fellow citizens”. Does that sound familiar? It should. It’s happening every day in Britain – at least to some of us.
Just like the rest of Europe, and the Western world, opposition to government policy on migration (and accompanying Islamisation) subjects a person to genuine political oppression and persecution in Great Britain.
Governments prevent the participation of some of their citizens in the political process by various means including violence and removal of their human rights; this includes the right to a fair trial.
A “fair” trial is an interesting concept in politically correct Britain, as is fairness in the legal system generally. Take for example, hate speech and hate crime. The language used to discuss these on the British legal scene is alarming. The website of the Metropolitan Police Service for example, on discussion of “hate crime”, includes the following chilling statement: “Evidence of the hate element is not a requirement”. What you’ve just read is that evidence is not required to punish a person for a crime. If ‘hate’ can be shown to be an element of a crime, then the punishment is greater, and so a person receives a punishment, or part of one, based on zero evidence. This statement unashamedly appears upon the website of the biggest police force in Britain.
Just as chillingly, the same site states: “A hate incident is any incident which the victim, or anyone else, thinks is based on someone’s prejudice towards them because of their race, religion” etc. The emphasis there is mine, but can you see it? ‘Hate’ is proven if the victim or someone else thinks the crime was motivated by ‘hate’. A person can therefore be criminally punished for what someone else believes they were thinking when they committed a crime. This is wide open to political abuse, and that is indeed what it is used for. “Hate” is not an issue when Muslim gangs rape white “trash”, but it can be very important indeed when offensive or threatening language is used against Muslims on Twitter. It’s entirely arbitrary, vague, and is only used against one political viewpoint. That’s why it amounts to political oppression.
Collusion between state and media to silence political opponents is also a method of oppression (and repression) of dissenting voices, and here in Britain, if you dare to oppose mass migration, Islamisation, or indeed express disgust as barbaric practices such as halal slaughter or FGM, the press will immediately destroy your reputation with labels of “racist”, “fascist”, and “far right”. This then closes off an honest route to public discussion for those deemed unacceptable by the state/media alliance. If a candidate for example expresses views inconsistent with celebration of mass migration, the press will destroy them on behalf of the state, which has no time for such criticisms of its open border policies. Destroying the reputation of political opponents using falsehoods is a form of political oppression.
Just as with hate crime laws, accusation in these matters is proof – no evidence is needed. If a newspaper calls you a fascist, as I know from personal experience, no evidence is required, and none is produced. The newspaper in question will not phone its victim to ask for a response to such an accusation, nor will it print any actual policy proposals. It won’t define fascism or explain how the accused fits the bill, it will simply label them a fascist and leave it at that. In addition, the ‘journalists’ will chase Hope Not Hate for back up, an extreme left-wing group known for smearing its opponents. The papers don’t contact the accused, they deliberately seek out support for the accuser. The words ‘witch hunt’ are truly apt.
To add an extra injustice, those on the receiving end of political oppression in the UK are often there because of their race – making them victims of racial oppression as well. Evidence is not required to prove motive in “hate crime” cases as outlined above, but nor is it required to imply motive. If I oppose halal meat on animal welfare grounds, I will be told “no, that’s not the reason, the reason is that you don’t like people with brown skin”. That’s the accusation and no proof is needed. If I am white, that accusation is ever more serious and ever more powerful. Indeed, sentencing guidelines produced in 2017 for the first time suggested greater sentences for white offenders than for non-white. It is a disastrous recipe for division and disempowerment, and that is exactly the point of it.
The British state, and all mainstream political parties, have committed themselves to mass migration, that is a given. In order to open the borders and keep them open, both had to lie to the populace about the future that lay ahead. It was a future of racial and religious segregation, and the appeasement of alien cultural norms considered crimes among the British majority. What results is a confused citizenry, one lacking leadership or moral clarity, and one told by its leaders that it is weak and deserving of demise.
The state’s disempowerment of the British people was complete when it refused to honour the result of the Brexit referendum, but this is just one example, the British people have been insulted and silenced for years with political correctness and censorship. We need urgently to rediscover our power. As civilised people, we will exercise that power through the utilisation of our democracy, and we will fight at the ballot box for a say over our lives again. For Britain is committed to this, we will travel the country, we will make our voices heard. We are politically oppressed, and we will fight back for Britain.
