UK: Liberty GB Leader Arrested For Quoting Winston Churchill
This is what the U.K. has become.
Quoting from the great WWII statesman Winston Churchill's literary work, for which he won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1953, has become a criminal offence in the UK - as it seems.
Paul Weston, chairman of the UK's Liberty GB party and a candidate in the 22 May European Parliament Elections, was arrested by the British police on 26 April for quoting a passage from Winston Churchill's book. [...]
Reportedly a woman, who found the passage "disgusting", came out of the Guildhall and called the police.
The passage Weston quoted was from Churchill's 1899 book, The River War:
How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property - either as a child, a wife, or a concubine - must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.
