If the Woke had a hammer
They’d hammer in the morning
They’d hammer in the evening
All over this land
They’d hammer out danger
They’d hammer out a warning
They’d hammer out love between
My brothers and my sisters, ah-ah
All over this land
This becomes less charming when you realize the Woke want a literal hammer and not a figurative one.
Watching so many of my comrades on the Left pat themselves on the back for trying to pre-censor a movie none of them had seen & militantly demand the Police be given the power to define hate speech makes me feel like I’m at a Klan rally wearing a rainbow.
I agree the 50year law needs changing and there should be an expansion of anti discrimination protections but criminalizing speech to satisfy the Woke’s low threshold for hate in a triggered outrage culture is a recipe for fucking disaster!
Incitement to violence is a clear threshold and we allow the Human Rights Commission to act as a filter for hate. Bringing people together to educate and attempt to resolve discrimination issues, but the Woke don’t want that filter, they want a weapon.
They see this as a means to smite the dirty filthy racists, the evil transphobes and raping misogynists.
This isn’t social policy, it’s a revenge fantasy!
Throwing someone in jail for 3years using a law defined by the police is not a liberal progressive democracy no matter how noble the goals!
I can’t tell the difference between a woke lynch mob and a sensible sentencing lynch mob any more!
Labour must urgently ignore the Woke and focus on a law change that protects minorities without green lighting a tsunami of complaints that quickly becomes an attempted purge of opinions we don’t like!
Comrades – we are the Left, we should be championing free speech, not repressing it! We can’t allow brittle millennial trigger culture to hand the State powers that history tells us will be used against us!
