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?
