A 41-year-old Scottish man was arrested after posting an allegedly 'offensive' message on Facebook about refugees.
The posts were supposedly about resettling refugees on the island where he lives.
According to Breitbart, The tiny Isle of Bute in the Firth of Clyde had a population of only 6,498 in 2011 and is now expected to take in 1000 Syrians.
Police told The Guardian that social media abuse towards Muslim migrants won't be tolerated.
“I hope that the arrest of this individual sends a clear message that Police Scotland will not tolerate any form of activity which could incite hatred and provoke offensive comments on social media,” Inspector Ewan Wilson said.
Oh, so having a different opinion than yours and voicing it on social media won't be tolerated?
This comes just days after a Danish man was charged for 'racist offenses' and was convicted for comparing Islam with Nazism. A case where the prosecution was able to successfully argue that Muslims are a 'race'.
