UK celebrity gets police visit for using transgender woman’s male name on Twitter

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

 

Since being dragged into the U.K.’s dysfunctional politics, media and judiciary through my involvement with Tommy Robinson, I’ve come to realize something.

They are five years further down the path of political correctness as we are.

Five years more politically correct, and five years worse in terms of media bias. Five years worse in terms of Islamification and censorship, and in terms of politicized policing and courts.

Five years further down the road of civilizational unravelling.

In that way, they’re a cautionary tale, or a canary in a coal mine for us — the same way we have been serving that role for Americans.

So, I’d like to give you the latest example by showing you what happened to a British celebrity named Graham Linehan.

He’s a creative type, and co-creator of a show called Father Ted. It’s funny and a bit edgy and kind of reminds me of Larry David’s character in Curb Your Enthusiasm - always saying the wrong thing but in a gentle way.

As with so many dramatic types, Linehan gets into harangues on Twitter. He’s a leftist, and a social justice warrior, of course. But, Twitter can be dangerous since it’s so instant, and unlike email, the whole world sees it, not just the person you write to.

But I’ll show you what happened when he started getting into a quarrel with a transgender activist — someone who was born a man, but now says he's a woman. Linehan called the activist by the name he was given by his parents - a male name, and that’s when the police were called.

Imagine police visiting you to tell you not to be mean on Twitter. And then that’s put on your record, forever. And you’re warned not to say things that hurt feelings. And the national media is fine with it.

London’s police force has 900+ police on the hate crimes beat! Nine-hundred police to watch for hate crimes - that’s bigger than some countries armies, I think.

That’s the UK in 2018.

I said Canada is five years behind, and that implies we’ll be that bad in 2023, but actually, I think we’re probably more like six months away. What do you think?

Sorry, Karen, Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. Not the Tree of Life. God booted them to of the Garden so they would not be able to eat of the Tree of Life and live forever as evil. Hence death entered into our world.

Allan Peterson-
Horowitz mentioned eating from the apple for the knowledge of good an evil.
I don’t think that was a sin at all.
________________________________________________________________________________First of all, Karen, scripture doesn’t say they ate an apple. That is a cultural assumption. They ate from the Tree of Life. God told them not to. That was disobedience and therefore a sin.

If you did so you would also be responsible as they were for unleashing all the misery we now experience. You would be believing the lie of Satan that they believed. No good can come of believing The Lie. Every time we disobey God we add to life’s misery.

Hence Romans, 1:18-22

18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19 because that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them. 20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse. 21 For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 22 Professing to be wise, they became fools…

Professing to be wise they became fools. Don’t let it be said of you.

Understanding mind control is far more important, some people are quit susceptible to it…not everything can be chalked up to mental illness!

Yeah Ezra, I can’t wait to see your show on ‘How to legally execute terrorists in a democratic country…like Canada’, which I will assume includes the Islamic and lefty types of terrorists as well.
It certainly feels like Islam and the lefty elite are at war with me…us…Canadians…Westerners.

“… The mistaken modern liberal notion that the issue of capital punishment concerns primarily the rights of the individual criminal, is deeply defective, and most certainly creates a climate for heinous crime by implying that society has no transcendent claim to equity; in fact has a lesser claim against the murderer than he made against his victim…” Willian Gairdner, “Defending Capital Punishment” : http://www.williamgairdner.com/defending-capital-punishment/

I don’t think that was a sin at all. I’d eat the whole tree to discover how God worked more thoughfully.
I’m glad God put an armed angel infront of the garden so we never regress to nudity again.
Everybody thinks there is going to be an armed war against the Left.
I think understanding mental health and its disciplines can actually disarm the violent radicals seeking to throw us back a generation.
It will only further free will provided we assume freedom for each unique individual to accept & contribute to it.

Allan Peterson-
Horowitz is wrong about Conservatism and free will because mental illness, legitimate mental illness is a warping of free will.
I myself am infirm.
I have a severe form of bi-polar disorder. That’s a brain abnormality I did not choose.
When I am sick, I have horrible delusional thoughts that feed into impulses of suicide or paranoid thinking.
But I am also Catholic and that doctrine is so tough, it teaches absolute behavioural discipline & to ignore what I’m thinking at all costs. To do what I believe is right and the Church is what I believe in so I do the right thing.
That is the supremacy of free will and psychiatrists are studying that & believe in that.
Being good is not inate. Horowitz is right. Knowing good from bad is not inate. Again, Horowitz is correct. But when natural ability to understand good from wrong is removed, you are again an animal without free will.
There is a grey matter area. The problem with current Conservative thinking is they don’t understand each individual enough to determine if they are free & healthy. They assume. But if they really assumed, there wouldn’t be cries for people to be thrown in a psychiatric institution if they disagreed.
In the mean time, the Left want a place that’s free from suffering by their own deliverance with the same level of ignorance by not studying each individual.
The Left assumes authority into deliverance & the Right assumes the taught ability to save yourself provided you follow their laws.
Being sick & Catholic, I displayed the latter to be true provided I was able once again to use my free will.
As for Britian. They need the ability to exercise their free will once again too. History has shown not to fuck with England even if it leads itself astray for centuries.
Don’t put a rush on another reformation.
Its Germany that can re-invent itself within a generation. A thought capital in Europe. Focus there.
England is a heart and Germany is the brain.

James MacMaster,

I couldn’t agree more, and it pains me to say it, since Britain is the land of my ancestors. But it is all but lost now, with idiots and traitors in control of many of the levers of power there. And Canada is next, unless we get patriots elected to every political office in this land, and fast. Electing Doug Ford was a good start in Ontario. Also Quebec now has a chance to survive, with the CAQ in power. But the job isn’t finished yet, by a long shot. Next up are Faith Goldy and Kevin J. Johnston, running for Mayor of Toronto and Mississauga, respectively. John Tory and Bonnie Crombie are worse than useless Mayors of these cities, both of which are going to hell in a handbasket, and both of these feckless pols have to be replaced asap with patriots Faith Goldy and Kevin J. Johnston. Otherwise, these cities will be completely unliveable in the very near future, as London, England is today. We won’t even want to visit our own country any more if we don’t get the useless pols out power and patriots into power, where they can enact laws to save our cities and hep save Canada.

Space Moose,

I respect and admire Ezra, and I agree with 99.999% of everything he says. But not on Faith Goldy. She is not racist, neo-nazi, or anti-Semitic. Just check out her recent Youtube videos and appearances. She is a Canadian patriot who is concerned that Canada is being lost to forces that would like nothing more than to destroy this country we have loved for over 150 years and transform it into a literal hellhole. Think Danforth. Think Marissa Shen. Traitor Trudeau is currently in the process of destroying Canada as I write this. We have to support people like Faith who are standing up for Canada, or we are going to lose Canada to the traitors who are destroying our beloved land. Squabbles between us only serve the traitors and their agenda to turn Canada into a Sharia state. We have to support every patriot like Faith Goldy and Kevin J. Johnston who stands for Canada. And I mean now!

Britain: a completely stupid little country.

There was a time in the not so distant past when the wife and I had Britain on our things-to-do-list…but we’ve scratched it. We simply won’t spend our hard earned dollars on countries that ignore basic human rights such as free speech, property rights, and freedom of association.

Way to go, Britain! You’re in the same league as Cuba!

- The basic premise is that the various victim groups are horribly oppressed & need the protection of leftist politicians who must be given more & more power to do so. The LGBT++++ keeps adding letters so the group (plantation) keeps getting bigger. If you don’t like your kids being visited by a 250Lb mental patient in a dress who thinks they’re a woman today, it’s an attack on the entire community (plantation).

- This needs to be the choice big tech companies face – get out of the censorship game or be held responsible for everything that goes on their sites. I believed Dr. Jordan Peterson mentioned something about this on an interview recently.

On Faith Goldy, don’t take my word for it. Just listen to what Ezra has to say about Faith.

Space Moose,

You’re darn right I take Kevin J. Johnston seriously, and Faith Goldy. As far as I am concerned, they have both been unfairly slandered by the traitorstream media as ‘far right’ and ‘extremist’, just as Tommy Robinson has been, and just as The Rebel and Ezra Levant have been, because they don’t kowtow to political correctness and they aren’t willing to see their country subverted and destroyed without one hell of a fight to save it first. They are both Canadian patriots with a lot more awareness of the threats facing Canada than almost anyone else I know of. I wouldn’t trade either one of them for 1000 John Tory’s or Bonnie Crombie’s, ever. They are out on the front lines, fighting for your freedom and mine, and I for one am grateful to them for it. I only hope they are successful in that fight. Because if they aren’t, and if nobody is, you don’t want to know what Canada will look like when Traitor Trudeau’s favorite cultures take over this country. Go Faith!!! Go Kevin!!!

The good news here in Manitoba is that we will not be implementing a carbon tax. The bad news is, the wife beating leader of the NDP insists on a carbon tax.

As for Kevin J Johnston, can you honestly tell me you can take him seriously? At the end of the day, he is just some loud mouth with nothing more than his same old talking points.

Keith Barnes- All that is true. Except the English voted to leave the EU.
…………………………….

Hi Karen, Yes the Brits did vote to leave the EU but the deal that Theresa May is pushing for is ‘Leave in name only’. Everything will more or less, remain the same. The EU will still control Brit laws, the Military and Police Forces and Immigration.

May is a traitor carrying a false flag who, with luck will have a No Confidence vote against her in the very near future. British Politics are very complicated right now.

Thanks for responding to my first comment.

Freedom of speech in Canada has already been curtailed to an alarming extent by the left, and if we don’t want to have the police harassing us for ‘politically incorrect’ speech in the near future (the HRC’s have been doing that for some time now, as Ezra is aware from his own experience), we better get the left out of political office and replaced by freedom-lovers whenever and wherever possible asap. A good place to start would be Toronto and Mississauga. Faith Goldy and Kevin J. Johnston are running for Mayor and need the help of other freedom-lovers in the GTA to win. Stand with them now, before it’s too late!

These paradoxes can be solved. With the right politicians.
I used to think the Norman’s were the only successful force in conquering Great Britian. How dead wrong I was.
I think all you have to do is remind the English of who they are. Not only what made them great but what tyrants they withstood so they can win the bloody freedom back.
It can be done without a war the same as Trump won office. Even with the Left acting more volatile.
Then, isolate the Left until its so radical nobody recognizes them.
That might not happen without a little anarcho-capitalism and the RIGHT words.
Thanks for commenting.

In fairness to ‘once’ Great Britain. All of Britain’s criminal laws are made in the EU. The whole Court and Policing system is controlled by the EU. When the unelected leaders of the EU say jump, Britain jumps.
In the near future, the British Parliament will hand over to the EU, the complete control of the British armed forces, including three new Aircraft Carriers, (one still being built). They will receive new uniforms, which once the Jack Boots are added, will only require Swastika’s to make them complete.
Unfortunately there are still Englishmen who still wish to remain as members of this degenerate organization.

Oh to be in England, now that spring is here.

#DeadName – how over the top dramatic!
Imagine having a dedicated Twitter police force to show up when conversations on social media turn into spats…no threats of violence mind you…dispatch the force of the law for a bruised ego. Ridiculous! Meanwhile, theft, break & enter and other crimes are no longer being investigated due to other “priorities”.

Make no mistake, this insanity is coming to Canada, thank Trudeau for Bill C-16!

The reason why the Left attacks itself over purity to an ideology is because it thinks if it can keep itself pure, it can withstand any outside forces trying to attack & dismantle it.
They’re trying to build an army using the gov’t as its soldiers.
They don’t care about other obsessive Puritans that are obsessed with total control. They’re obsessed with people telling them “No”.
And they think of other Puritans of other stripes so lowly as themselves, they don’t care if they eat their own or even attack everybody for an idea hierarchy as insane as themselves.
Then censorship. The paranoia of being on top at all costs. The idea you’ll loose everything and be outsourced. Like being replaced means put in a pile of uselessness to be forgotten instead of celebrated as a crucial stepping stone for the progression of humankind.
The sanctimonious Left can’t think higher than itself by claiming it encompases everybody.

I can imagine phone companies denying service to conservatives who have been accused of “hate crimes.” And if people complained of discrimination, the companies could just say that they’re exercising their own judgement of those who misuse the phone service for “anticultural motives.
