The Latest in UK Political Correctness: Non-Crime Hate Incidents
America is America because the United Kingdom's government was, and still is, a dumpster fire fueled with rancid bangers, currant-filled desserts, and so many restrictions on personal freedom even Lucius Malfoy is aghast. If I could, I ship a containers full of socks Britain's way.
Below is an actual tweet from an actual police department in the Olde Country. Shocking to no one from the UK (see Authorities Investigating a “Bacon Hate Crime” Outside a Mosque. Yes, Really… and Cookie Monster is the Spokesman for Knife Control in England). First, the bobbies want you to snitch anytime there's a "hate crime." But don't stop there.
Please report "non-crime hate incidents." First, I volunteer this entire website as tribute to the reporting cause. If someone in the UK could send this url to the South Yorkshire police, I'd appreciate it. For I have personally insulted the sucky UK government every possible chance I've gotten. I walk back zero.
Lemme clarify a point. I'm not against the people of the United Kingdom. My heart breaks for the oppression under which you fine, cultured people live. Though again I say, America is a thing because your government blows chunks of bread and butter pudding. Which is the proper way to "enjoy" that dessert.
Just what is a "non-crime hate incident" I wonder. So, like, if I were to tell a Ringer (Lord of the Rings fan) the Peter Jackson films were far better than any of the tediously long novels, would I be reported as a criminal? What if I said "I can't find a single decent meal in all of London, this city is shite," would I be reported? Maybe just "The monarchy is outdated and overrated, change my mind" would do the trick. Or do I just need to ask for a pair of scissors? Not sure where y'all line up on the cutting devices these days. What with all the knife control.

The United Kingdom has a lot of problems. Heck, no country is without its issues. But a police department cracking down on "non-crime hate incidents" seems like a misplacing of resources. Plus, if you want the Yankees to stop making fun of your country's government, though we have a rich history of doing just that, y'all need to change some leadership. Less touchy feely "he hurt my feelings" more Winston Churchill arse-kicking. Politeness is fine, but these laws are getting sillier by the day.
