In the west violent crime is acceptable, criticizing government is not

Yesterday German police showed their commitment to protecting women by harassing 45 people who said bad things about women.

Police raided homes and interrogated 45 suspects in 11 states early in the morning, German news agency dpa reported. None of the suspects were detained.

Like so much or modern policing the actions taken by police were influenced by politics and optics.

The raids were part of the annual “combating misogyny on the internet” day of action, which began in 2022 and comes one day before International´s Women´s Day.

I don’t know about you but I am not a fan of this new headline seeking police work.  I much prefer the old school policing where people were arrested for doing bad things rather than saying bad things.  If I was a German taxpayer my choice would be to have the police focus on the explosion of rapes and gang rapes.  This will never happen though.  Solving the problem of actual violence against women would involve upsetting a protected identity group that views rape as a pious right.  In 2024 that is just not how police roll.  In 2024 police services, swollen with diversity hires, find it much easy to confront internet shit talkers than violent criminals.

The police have now settled into a comfortable policy of only pursuing thought crimes. Arresting thought criminals instead of violent criminals keep police safe and politicians happy.  It is far easier to govern the country when no one is allowed to say anything bad about what you are doing.  Arresting thought criminals is a tactic developed by authoritarian governments that has now been enthusiastically embraced by western democracies.  Western politicians enjoy it so much that they now use it far more than the people the media wants us to call tyrants.


Chelsea Russel did not criticize government policy so she received only house arrest.  If you actually criticize government policy in Britain you do jail time.

Britain is no longer a free country.” Such is the rash conclusion being drawn from the case of Sam Melia—an anti-immigration activist who late last week was sentenced to two years in prison for “inciting racial hatred.” His offence? Making and distributing stickers with slogans like “We will be a minority in our homeland by 2066” and “Stop mass immigration.” Other tags included “Reject white guilt,” “Stop anti-white rape gangs,” and “Love your nation.”

Thought crime arrests are also common place in Canada where Justin Trudeau is tanking in the polls.  In the grand tradition of “the beatings will continue until moral improves” Justin has decided to up his game.  His new internet safety bill will allow him to arrest anyone who worships anything other than government, or anyone who has ever said anything in their life that Justin does not like.

That sounds pretty harsh right?  Don’t worry the man how reveled in trampling seniors with horses was not about to stop at simply what you have said.  He has also added provisions in the law that will allow him to arrest you for what you might say; at a future date in an alternate universe.

Justice Minister Arif Virani has defended a new power in the online harms bill to impose house arrest on someone who is feared to commit a hate crime in the future – even if they have not yet done so already.

When it is more dangerous to speak up in Canada than Russia we have a problem.  When Canadians can be arrested for something the government thinks they might say we have tyranny.  Have you had enough yet?  Or, do the police need to arrest you for a pre-crime-thought crime, before you speak up?
