UK: Scotland to Apply New, Even Dumber Hate Crime Bill Starting April

The UK was totally conquered by brown people.

Now they’re making it illegal to criticize them.


On April 1st, Scotland will enact its controversial Hate Crime and Public Order Act, a legislation that has been the focus of intense debate over its potential to stifle free speech and lead to a rise in vexatious complaints. Critics argue that the law’s broad definitions could make it a tool for targeting individuals with differing viewpoints, particularly on issues of gender and religion.

Background and ControversyThe law, which was passed three years ago but delayed due to concerns about its enforcement, aims to criminalize “stirring up hatred” against protected characteristics including religion, age, disability, sexual orientation, and transgender identity. However, it has been criticized for not protecting biological sex, leading to fears that it could be used to silence debate on gender identity issues. Furthermore, the law allows for prosecution of conversations in private homes and does not include protections for “discussion or criticism” of certain protected characteristics, raising alarms about the impact on free speech.

We’ve never heard of a hate speech law that applies to conversations in private homes.

After looking at that photo, it makes sense.

Enforcement and Training ConcernsDespite the delay, police officers in Scotland have reportedly received only a two-hour online training session in preparation for the law’s implementation. This has led to concerns among senior police officials about the practicality of enforcing the legislation without causing further division or incorrectly targeting innocent people. The general secretary of the main police union has criticized the training as “not fit for purpose,” and there are fears that the law could be “weaponised” by activist groups, potentially leading to a surge in reports that may not result in prosecutions but could still harm individuals’ reputations.

It’s the most extreme hate crimes law ever.

It’s even more extreme than the Irish one.
