We’re always hearing from lefties that we need to be more like Europe, so what’s say we check in on how things are going across the pond?
A journalist has been accused of a hate crime, after she misgendered a trans person on Twitter. Hate crimes have a maximum two-year prison sentence.

They’re so progressive over there!
Accused of a hate crime?
Are we now liable to be prosecuted because we won't pretend they are something they are not?

Why are the police wasting our taxes investigating such nonsense! I was told the UK had ‘policing by consent’.
Well I DON’T consent to this nonsense!
The PC brigade should learn to accept that if you want to be weird, you can be, but live with it!

Stick and stones may break my bones but some find Twitter more offensive. Guns and knives will end my life but words will get me arrested. #MadHouse
