WTF, Rishi Sunak

"People who vilify Britain will be treated as extremists and referred to the Government’s deradicalisation Prevent programme under plans by Rishi Sunak"

What is 'vilify'? Is it anyone who says a word against the Tories? Is it anyone who calls up historical facts on colonialism?

@welshpixie I mean... no one needs to vilify Britain, historical events kinda take care of that.

@ljwrites Britain is as bad as the U.S. for "telling the truth about our history is racist because it makes white people feel uncomfortable" though. They don't label it critical race theory here, but they say the same things. @welshpixie

@bright_helpings telling sign of fascism when telling the truth is considered treason @welshpixie

UK politics

@lorenlepton @welshpixie off to the reprogramming camp for you.

Funny thing is all the twats that bleat about free speech won't complain about this.

re: UK politics 

@welshpixie Shit like this is honestly why I hate "deradicalization" as an entire concept.

(well, sort of the opposite: it's more that shit like this makes it obvious why I hate "deradicalization".)

@welshpixie Fascism appears to be all the rage here.

Given what I’ve said publicly on here and elsewhere I fully expect to be in the first wave of those requiring “re-education”.

@welshpixie
They want to imprison anyone who voted SNP. Of course they'll come for the Welsh & Irish nationalists afterwards.
Along with any other socio-political group or currently protected characteristic that offends the narrow-minded bigots who vote Tory. The knuckle dragging brigade are simultaneously being fired up to unleash on the Trans community.
It's horrifying seeing 1984 played out as a live event.
I guess this comment will cost me 10 years in the gulag.

re: UK politics 

@welshpixie Well he did announce that human rights were in the way of his goals

UK politics 

@welshpixie wtf indeed, though rn all this is just leadership campaign bollocks.

If anything like his idea do get enacted, then just like has been the case with Prevent so far, it'll likely primarily target non-white kids in schools too :/

UK politics 

@welshpixie Crikey, what audience is this aimed at? Nakedly targeting those who think their precious union has had its day, no doubt, as a response to Truss recently scoring extra stasi-points in her dismissal of the Scottish democratic process.

@welshpixie

Owen said it well

"Hating a country that funds the Royals over those in need, ignores its historic crimes, targets migrants, whose police force is misogynistic and racist and whose Government attacks trans people (to name but a few ills) is not a radical position. It should be the norm."

Trying to appeal to the Tory Party membership. And they're… rabidly awful.
