In 2020, we need to fight the new thoughtpolice

In the United States, there is a growing industry of consultants who advise organisations about how to rid themselves of their supposed ‘white-supremacy culture’. According to these zealots, some of the attitudes and behaviours associated with white-supremacy culture include ‘individualism’, ‘a sense of urgency’ and ‘perfectionism’.

In other words, those who take their work too seriously may be tainted by white supremacy. Thinking logically is basically thinking white.

“Orwell’s thought police is now a reality. Humberside Police are investigating a man for retweeting an offensive limerick — they even contacted him to ‘check his thinking’. It is now normal for police to investigate ‘non-crime hate incidents’.” — @andrewdoyle_com on #SkyPapers

Humberside Police tell man to ‚check his thinking‘ after he likes ‚offensive transgender limerick‘ on Twitter

The former policeman said he faced 34 minutes of phone questions from a police constable after liking the post. The officer, Mr Miller claims, told him he was investigating a report of „hate speech“ after an unnamed complainant contacted the force, reports Grimsby Live.

He spoke out about the probe on his own Twitter page and said: „Cop said he was in possession of 30 tweets by me. I asked if any contained criminal material. He said…No.

„I asked if any came close to being criminal…and he read me a limerick. Honestly. A limerick. A cop read me a limerick over the phone.“
