This is extremely disturbing.

Law enforcement in the UK has begun to act as the coercive arm of gender identity ideology.

Police are issuing orders to private citizens on what ideas to believe, express and demonstrate agreement with when it comes to the issue of gender identity.

Police officers are subjecting to interrogation, intimidation and threats of job loss those who hold, express or indicate agreement with views that prominent government officials do not wish them to on this issue.

The cop told me that he needed to speak with me because, even though I’d committed no crime whatsoever, he needed (and I quote) ‘to check my THINKING!’ Seriously. Honestly.

Finally, he lectured me. Said, ‘Sometimes, a woman’s brain grows a man’s body in the womb and that is what transgender is.’ […] he told me that I needed to watch my words more carefully or I was as risk of being sacked by the company for hate speech.

According to Harry Miller, that was part of his 34-minute exchange with a police officer who dialed him up at work after a “victim” reported Mr. Miller for posting, liking and sharing 30 tweets that have questioned or expressed lack of faith in gender identity ideology.

On Mr. Miller’s Twitter account are featured such basic, factual statements as, “Trans women are not women.”

A business owner, chairperson of his company, and a former police officer who has never been in trouble with the law, Mr. Miller was surprised by the interrogation.

Cop said he was in possession of 30 Tweets by me. I asked if any contained criminal material. He said…. No. I asked if any came close to being criminal… and he read me a limerick. Honestly. A limerick. A cop read me a limerick over the phone.

I said, I didn’t write that. He said, ‘Ah. But you Liked it and promoted it.’ I asked why he was wasting his time on a non crime. He said, ‘It’s not a crime, but it will be recorded as a hate incident.’

So, I’ve added to a statistic, even though there is no crime, which brings me to my next point. The cop repeatedly called the complainant ‘the victim.’ I asked how there could be a victim if, as he’d established, there was no crime. He said, that’s just how it works.

Similarly, in Canada, one Morgan Oger, Vice President of the British Columbia New Democratic Party, tweeted the Vancouver Police Department to report feminist Meghan Murphy for violating national law when she stated that trans women are men.

Mr. Oger, who was born male, now self-identifies as a woman.

It has far greater implications beyond gender identity when a government begins to order its citizens to recite propaganda that citizens and government officials alike all know to be false and do not believe in, and subjects those who refuse to repeat or appear to question the propaganda to state punishment.

It signals or at least opens the door to the rise of repressive, dictatorial rule. Under such totalitarian governments, media, individuals and groups who oppose or question the ruling class are completely suppressed, and police and military are used to bring into effect the complete repression of the populace by use of state violence.

Is it now a crime to like a poem about transgenderism?

The Spectator
This is a story about Harry Miller, a man who has lived a life that might be described as blameless and even admirable. He’s the director of a company that employs 70-odd people in one of the poorer bits of England, invests in its staff and community, and uses its financial and technical expertise to raise large sums of money and make life better for people who really need it in very poor parts of Nepal.

  1. A clue to why burglary & vandalism largely aren’t investigated in the UK, except when it demonstrates ‘hate’ of a protected group (women of course not being 1 of the groups): police spend their days instead looking at TWITTER for thoughtcrimes. Meanwhile, the innocent & law-abiding are terrorized in their own homes, AND intimidated by the police.

  2. we have reached the level of Orwellian absurdity where it is a hate crime to speak the truth and we are expected to embrace insanity as if it were sane
