UK man sentenced to 180 hours of unpaid work for saying Muslims should put Britain first, other 'anti-Islam' remarks

StaffRebel Columnist

An Englishman has been sentenced to 180 hours of community service for a Facebook post in which he wrote, “Don’t come over to this country and treat it like your own. Britain first.”

He also wrote comments that “concerned Asian women” and were “likely to be offensive to Muslims”.

According to Manchester Evening News, Stephen Bennett “made inflammatory remarks on Greater Manchester Police’s Facebook page”. The remarks were made “response to an appeal for information in a sex case with an Asian suspect.”

In British news media, “Asians” is a term used to describe men of Arab decent. No longer does “Asian Gang” mean Yakuza.

The report added that Bennett's mother-in-law and sister-in-law are Muslims.

When police showed up at his door during an 8am house call he said, “Is this about that Muslim thing on Facebook? I’m getting locked up for sticking up for my own country.”

One Muslim witness told police they feared Bennett's “irresponsible’ comments” would “incite hatred”.
The judge agreed and said ‘running the risk of stirring up racial hatred in the present climate’, was ‘very serious’ and played into the hands of 'enemies of this country'.

Bennett was sentenced to 180 hours of unpaid work with the judge adding “your remarks damaged the community in which you live, and it’s the community that you must repay.”

If anyone is playing into the hands of the enemy, it's the judge for seemingly enforcing sharia law with a pro-censorship agenda.

Stephen, what if thousands of Brits now go to facebook and start slamming Muslims. Will the police round up thousands of Brits?

The real “crime” he committed was being a dhimmi who would not submit to Islam and voiced his opposition to it.

If he had written something about Jews or Hindus, do you actually believe the police would even raise an eyebrow?

Almost too funny

People on the other ide of the pond are only getting what they deserve.

Hopefully civil war happens before it gets worse here.

Over on Free Republic a Brit tired to deny that this is happening. Indeed, UK police are using their goose stepping boots to put down free speech. Holy crap, I can’t even believe this is happening. Actually arrested for something said on facebook. Even Canada does not do this. Although I think Trudeau would like this to be the case. Britain is truly lost, and keep in mind this is happening under a so called Conservative administration.

“One Muslim witness told police they feared Bennett’s “irresponsible’ comments” would “incite hatred”.”

I think this muslim witness has it backwards. There is only one group that is inciting hatred through irresponsible comments and actions. If this muslim wants a clue as to what that group is, he need only look in a mirror. I think the majority of Westerners were benign or neutral when it came to Islam, up until muslims became irresponsible in their behaviour.

Of course, the judge is criminally irresponsible in his actions; but aren’t they all.
