Rolling Descent into Fascism Thread (no chat)


#501

Laugh at a guy whilst protesting, 1 year in prison.

Shoot a man who happens not to be white, well that’s a bit different isn’t it…


#502

And what about things that are invented between when you’re born and when you’re fifteen?


#503

have been reading about the Utoya massacre the last couple of days, maybe a bit naive but i find it incredible how the alt-right/neo-nazi movement has grown in the years since. had forgotten how completely horrifying and unreal that was. children slaughtered for being liberals

The UN HRC (rightly) gives us hell:

  • PREVENT policy risks ‘dividing, stigmatizing and alienating segments of the population’
  • Trade Union balloting legislation ‘profoundly undemocratic’
  • The Investigatory Powers Act “contained procedures without adequate oversight, coupled with overly broad definitions, which might result in unduly interfering with the right to privacy, the right to freedom of opinion and expression and the right to freedom of association.”

We knew all this, but good to see such a stinging rebuke
