David Cameron’s Bizzare Totalitarian Message to the U.K.
by Will Porter
Wow, holy crap!
Usually I have a lot to say when a politician utters something so blatantly tyrannical, but in this case you really just have to read what the man said.
Maybe this is more acceptable across the pond, but I would hope that, to American ears, it sounds downright absurd and frightening.
Cameron’s comments are brief—but no less insane—so I can share them here in their entirety. From The Independent article above (including the hyperlink embedded in the original):
Britain is too “passively tolerant” and should not leave people to live their lives as they please just because they obey the law, David Cameron has said.
At the National Security Council today Mr Cameron unveiled a series of measures that he said would crack down on people holding minority “extremist” views that differed from Britain’s consensus.
“For too long, we have been a passively tolerant society, saying to our citizens ‘as long as you obey the law, we will leave you alone’,” he said.
“It’s often meant we have stood neutral between different values. And that’s helped foster a narrative of extremism and grievance.”
The article goes on to quote another state official who disagrees, so good. At least we know Cameron doesn’t belong to his own Sacred “Consensus.”
To parrot a point made by hilarious (I think so, anyway) anti-feminist YouTube commentator, who goes by “Sargon of Akkad,” a reasonable person might surmise that an epidemic of “passive tolerance” would be a great motive to not crack down on the populace. But what the hell do reasonable people know?
“Peace breaks out across Britain, David Cameron alarmed.”
