I don’t have to tell you how the UK is becoming a giant cesspool of suckage. Soon, you could find yourself in the pen for packing a Swiss Army knife.

The broadcaster was accused of racism when he posted a black and white photo of a man and woman holding hands with a suited chimpanzee after Meghan gave birth. In the caption, Baker, 61, wrote: “Royal baby leaves hospital.”

“Specialist officers.” Let this serve as a warning, UK folks. The Thought Police exists and they are watching you.
First of all, this whole investigation is over a joke. Not the most appropriate joke mind you, but a kneeslapper nonetheless. This guy could be facing legal consequences for the crime of having bad taste. Let that sink in for a moment.
Even more scary is how many a douchemeister on the left thinks this sort of thing is a-okay. They cheer on the notion of the state having the ultimate power to regulate speech. For the good of the collective. Remind me, who are the fascists again?
This is the endgame of political correctness, my people. It all starts off innocent enough, with public shaming for “inappropriate” remarks. Before you know it, the fuzz is coming down on you and you’re practicing your soap-holding skills. For a joke. Scary stuff.
Since we’re talking speech:
