UK Police Department Urges Residents to Report “Non-Crime Hate Incidents.”…What?

There is a man in jail right now for teaching his dog to Heil Hitler.

This is, of course, in the UK. Where you can, apparently, go to jail for such a thing.

Not having learned from the entire free world gaping at this outrageous case of political correctness gone wild/fascistic, the UK is doubling-down on their quest to stop all hate, because if human history has taught us anything, it’s totally that we’re one oppressive law away from completely and totally regulating the sinful nature of the human heart, right?

The South Yorkshire Police Department recently urged citizens to join their effort to stop “non-crime hate incidents”.

I don’t know about you, but it would seem to me that a “non-crime hate incident” would not be something that concerns the police department.

And that as soon as police departments start trying to crack down on human emotions we have crossed over into some very dangerous territory. The term “Orwellian” has become a cliche but in this case, it is not only perfectly applicable, it’s downright literal. And granted that George Orwell was himself a Brit, there’s a good likelihood he’s rolling over in his grave outside some ornate historical church in the English countryside somewhere.

“In addition to reporting hate crime, please report non-crime hate incidents, which can include things like offensive or insulting comments, online, in person or in writing,” the South Yorkshire Thought Police write on Twitter. “Hate will not be tolerated in South Yorkshire. Report it and put a stop to it

As one can imagine, because the desire to live free still beats in the heart of every self-respecting Westerner, Twitter users were less than thrilled.
