Whenever we write a post about the U.K., we always end up asking, “What happened to the U.K.?” Political correctness apparently has not only infected the country more, but it’s been codified into law. Back in 2016, we reported that Nottinghamshire police were the first in the nation to classify misogyny as a hate crime. Police explained: “A hate crime is simply any incident, which may or may not be deemed as a criminal offence, which is perceived by the victim or any other person, as being motivated by prejudice or hatred.” A wolf-whistle? That’s a hate crime.
Now the U.K. Telegraph is reporting that police have recorded nearly 120,000 “non-crime” hate incidents that could show up on a person’s background check during a job interview. Here’s activist, healer, and radical intersectionalist poet Titania McGrath with more:
In the past five years, UK police have recorded 120,000 “non-crime hate incidents”.
This kind of police action is essential. For too long, people have been not breaking the law and getting away with it.https://t.co/Nyl8iK39QN
