UK – ‘extremists’ to be banned from using Facebook and Twitter

You have heard of the “No Fly List”, right?  Well, now the Tories are pledging that if they win the next election in the UK they will establish a list of “extremists” that will have to have their social media posts “approved in advance by the police” before they post them.  

There are also plans to ban “extremists” from broadcasting and speaking at public events.  The stated goal of these proposals is to crack down on terrorism, but in the process the civil liberties of the British people are going to be flushed down the toilet.  And the American people need to pay close attention to what is going on in the UK, because whatever police state measures are implemented over there usually also get implemented over here eventually.  

For those that believe that we need to do “whatever it takes” to fight terrorism, there is a very important question that you need to ask yourself.  What if the government decides that you are an “extremist” because of what you believe?  What will you do then?
When I saw a report in the Telegraph today entitled “Extremists to have Facebook and Twitter vetted by anti-terror police“, I could hardly believe it.
Do the British people actually want a “no social media list” that will essentially ban people from using Facebook and Twitter even though they haven’t actually been convicted of doing anything wrong?
The following is a brief excerpt from that article
Extremists will have to get posts on Facebook and Twitter approved in advance by the police under sweeping rules planned by the Conservatives.
They will also be barred from speaking at public events if they represent a threat to “the functioning of democracy”, under the new Extremist Disruption Orders.
Theresa May, the Home Secretary, will lay out plans to allow judges to ban people from broadcasting or protesting in certain places, as well as associating with specific people.
The plans — to be brought in if the Conservatives win the election in May — are part of a wide-ranging set of rules to strengthen the Government’s counter-terrorism strategy.
This sounds like an Orwellian nightmare for the British people.
And who is an “extremist” anyway?
We are being told that those that belong to ISIS are extremists, and nobody would argue that.
But the article in the Telegraph makes it sound like any group “that spreads or promotes hatred” would be considered extremist.  And under these new proposals, even belonging to such a group could get you thrown into prison for up to 10 years
The Home Secretary will also introduce “banning orders” for extremist groups, which would make it a criminal offence to be a member of or raise funds for a group that spreads or promotes hatred. The maximum sentence could be up to 10 years in prison.
So what does all of that exactly mean?
Would anti-abortion groups be considered “extremist”?
Would groups promoting traditional values be considered “extremist”?
Would groups protesting against the abuses of the British government be considered “extremist”?
Would Christian churches ultimately be considered “extremist” because they don’t agree with the radical liberal agenda of the central government?
Essentially what the Tories propose to do is to tightly regulate all speech.  And there is no way to do that without turning the entire United Kingdom into a totalitarian hellhole.
Meanwhile, the United States continues to march down a similar road.

TAP – Facebook and Twitter are public forums.  Why would anyone ‘extreme’ or intending to commit an act of terror communicate so openly?  They wouldn’t.  These are measures designed to flatten political opposition, not prevent terrorism.  The truth flies around so quickly on social media.  That’s what they want stopped.  Their lies are getting found out too often and too quickly.

    Facebook and Twitter????? I wouldn’t give them the steam off my urine let alone a comment. LOL

  2. Tapestry says:

    You might not, Mr Bull****, but many people do use them to communicate their thoughts to each other. People campaigning against fracking are classified as domestic extremists, and would be banned for example.

    Whoever opposes government policy is being so classified. It’s the murder of democracy. Why would anyone badging themselves as a British patriot be so happy about that? Unless of course it’s a false flag they’re carrying.

    The people are well aware now of the power we have by social media. Pictures and proof of this corrupt regime posted all over the world in seconds. Very dangerous for the PTB and the lies they pedal in the MSM. They are outsmarted and they know it. Yet IS are allowed to post their vile acts … oh but they are the Governments extremists.

    Who are the “ecstweemists”…?

    Well anyone who dares question the criminality of our ruling paedogangsta mafia of course..

    Time thos people in the security services and positions that influence started working for the people they were sworn in to protect, and maybe salvage whats left of the country after these dual national gangsters have stripped it of anything worth having.

    Time for you guys to start upholding the values that your forefathers fought and died for, not the ideals of Common Purpose.

    Tap @ 11:15 am referred to the murder of democracy. I believe western so-called ‘democracy’ is a Jewish contrived/controlled, still-born construct anyway and meant to slowly dispossess and ultimately enslave/annihilate us.

    “A democracy is three wolves and two sheep voting on dinner. A simple republic is three wolves and two sheep electing a committee to plan dinner. A constitutional republic is a system of limited government in which no one has authority to plan dinner for others and in which the sheep are armed.”
