Don’t write “unkind” things on Twitter, or “you may receive a visit from” the Scottish police — or even the OPP

Rebel Staff
 

This isn’t an April Fools joke. The police department in Glasgow has issued this threat, by Twitter: "Think before you post or you may receive a visit from us this weekend. Use the internet safely. #thinkbeforeyoupost"

They added a chart showing the word “think,” with each letter standing for some watchword. Is the tweet true? Hurtful? Illegal? Necessary? Kind?

This comes a week after a London man was arrested for the alleged crime of tweeting about a conversation with a Muslim woman.

(Glasgow has been in the news lately about some other social media posts, but ones made by Muslims. Funny, those “THINK” rules don’t see to apply to Muslim promoting terrorism. Just to anyone complaining about terrorism.)

Canadians aren't safe from police bullying, though. I’ll tell you about a Canadian journalist who just got a call from the OPP about a joke he made about them on Twitter.

When I saw that, I did something I don't think I've ever done before...

NEXT: Sun columnist Lorne Gunter joins me to talk about the Cenovus job cuts — more proof that Trudeau's EI plan is unfair to Edmonton.

THEN: Tiffany Gabbay from Truth Revolt reports on on Al Gore’s proposal to turn “climate eniers” into criminals. Plus Tiffany and I have a BIG announcement...

FINALLY: Your message to me — including hate mail!

Robert you are correct, but I thought I’d give them some thing easy to start with… but ya when these yahoo’s start doing what they are paid to do maybe then they will get some respect… just remember (yahoo’s) you have to earn respect…

Dean,

You forgot to include the investigation and prosecution of the real crooks, the politicians and lawyers and judges.

NOTE TO OPP… You want respect then go and enforce the law in Caledonia,,, after that go and enforce the law with regards to trafficking in illegal cigarettes on reserves… then we can talk respect… in the mean time GO F**K yourselves and crawl back under your rock, you useless tits

KJ – I agree, it so much easier to target law compliant people as what happened in High River, when police took advantage of a crisis situation and kicked in peoples doors of their homes to search law abiding citizens homes for guns and to seize them.
There was also recently the case of police officers in Toronto who perjured themselves in hopes of taking away a man’s freedom. Now they want to police and censor our freedom os speech? In Scotland and London where the police are doing this, there are ‘No go zones’, much like Caledonia, where the police won’t even go, so they target the law compliant people, and try and take away freedom of speech.

The human rights commission?
Are’nt these bums a bunch of high priced legal hogs living off the public purse? Are’nt the lawyers presenting cases to the commission eating out of the same pig trough (sorry, I should not insult our friends the pigs on the farm, at least they are committed to give us bacon)

I just subscribed to respond to this post:

“Robert Edwards commented 1 day ago
Funny how the OPP show up so fast for a tweet, but when the occupation of Caledonia was happening and one couple was under siege and under total lawlessness, they were abandoned by the OPP who the couple said “just looked the other way.” Yet when someone uses freedom of speech, one of the last freedoms society seems to have, they are right there. Johnny on the spot. "

The reason is because it’s extremely easy to single out people who you know will be law compliant. Not so easy to stand up to people who might fight back (e.g., the Caledonia natives). It’s gutless. The topic of this article is very similar. The OPP know it’s easy to go after someone that colours outside the lines of the current politically correct hive mind, so they do. Human Rights commissions can target someone like Ezra because they know his supporters are quiet, law abiding and generally too busy to protest. If they were to target, for example, a muslim for a human rights violation, they know there would be protests and maybe worse. So they don’t.

Ezra – swearing was the only normal and logical response to this fascism! I think that Wynnie doesn’t want anymore billboards, pointing out that she’s a criminal, and that she is the one that should be jailed, for corruption and fraud and lying to those who are paying for her circus of fools, that continue to feed from the public trough.

At 9:00 – There is a reason why they all do it at the same time. It is planned that way.
commented 2016-04-02 20:22:21 -0400
The police are becoming the enemy of the people and the sword of the government.

And the police seem to love it.

Is it any wonder that these “laws” are coming into effect at this juncture of time? We have existed for better or worse for quite some time with the rules we have that have served us all some what fairly. So why the sudden change? We all know what it is about. It is a re-configuring of our legal system to accommodate one new group who do not wish to be criticized. It is hard for me to imagine our police force would so quickly and easily capitulate. I am beginning to feel we are on the fast track to becoming a communist country and the people are failing to see behind the smiles and selfies we are giving our freedoms away and few seem to care enough about the sacrifices our forefathers made to get us the liberties we are so easily willing to cast aside, Shame on the police, Shame on us.

Bill,
The OPP are a joke . . . all year round. As for fools, they are the Wynn stooges.
commented 2016-04-02 18:42:10 -0400
This is an April fool’s joke from the OPP PR right?
commented 2016-04-02 15:40:32 -0400
Shouldn’t the OPP be more concerned about real criminals like Kathleen Wynne?
commented 2016-04-02 15:06:22 -0400
I would not mind a visit from Glasgow police if they brought some Walkers Shortbread.

Speaking of not saying nice things or hurtful things, or you’ll get arrested, and coincidentally related to the few commentaries on TheRebel about Toronto’s former Mayor Rob Ford, and with apologies to decent Canadians across the country, have a look at what the idiotic editors of the Winnipeg Free Press published today about the “wealthy demagogue, Rob Ford”:

Note that most of the Comments following this article think that this is good, objective journalism.

Of COURSE we are into the new nazism! hey, if you social media pundits want more freedom, then I suggest you all get together for a buck apiece or whatever and make your own website to counter the foolishness of Twitter and Facebook, which are merely arms of the New World order. get your freedom and fight for it!

Gee… I wonder if the RCMP have me on their radar now…
commented 2016-04-02 09:58:56 -0400
These stories and actions are reminiscent of Nazi Germany.

Seems like we’re headed down the same road, time to issue the OPP brown shirts and the RCMP black shirts (SS)
commented 2016-04-02 09:49:28 -0400
When are people going to wake up and fight back. If Canadians don’t care to see their country turned into Sweden or Cologne, they better stand up. I’m ashamed to be a decendent of Scotland today.
Muslims need not be so smug either, they are being used too. And when the plan comes to fruition, they will be joining the rest of us in bondage.
commented 2016-04-02 09:48:34 -0400
I love you Ezra!! Dont normally say that to another guy… You are a beacon in the darkness!! Keep it up.. If you come out to Niagara let me know and Ill show you around!
commented 2016-04-02 07:01:56 -0400
This sounds very similar to the REAL story (Happened in my family) I know about COMMUNISM and the Stasi Police in East Germany when the Russians took over! Man makes a political joke to a friend next thing he is arrested and taken from his family for Brainwashing.
History repeating? Sure sounds like it!

It is just a matter of time before the RCMP come knocking on Ezra’s door.

For what? For saying islamic fkg terrorist? Do you know something the rest of us don’t???

Twitter is in the shitter. It’s losing subscribers every quarter. It’s a bad concept.

But the media party and big government still love promoting it.
commented 2016-04-02 03:29:14 -0400
Where do the police get off presuming to enforce veracity, feelings, necessity or kindness? Isn’t their job to enforce the law? Who presumed to give them the right to enforce anything else? If someone has broken a law, enforce it. If someone has simply said something of questionable veracity, something that offends, something unnecessary, or something unkind, the police should stay the hell out of it. They have no business doing otherwise.

Liberal fascism and lefto-fascism now hold sway in Canada.. Freedom is now only for the left in this formerly free country and, increasingly, in the entire Western world. We have the left and the left alone to thank for that. As a conservative, I no longer feel safe or secure in Canada. I no longer feel free to speak without the specter of persecution hanging over me and suppressing many of my thoughts from public discourse; thoughts I would not have hesitated to speak publicly thirty years ago. I’d like a public inquiry on that! Fat chance.
