UK Judge Just Proposed a ‘Knife-Control’ Tactic That is Both Ridiculous and Utterly Bizarre

This is so ridiculous.

A lot of progressives here in America are just simply enthralled by how countries in Europe, particularly the United Kingdom, have applied the principles of this horrific ideological system especially when it comes to guns.

The UK banned guns a long while ago, but it seems to have done very little to stop violent crime as a whole. Sure, shootings might be down, but knife attacks have reached insanely highly levels.

How insanely high? High enough that the powers that be in the UK have now started developing “knife control” policies — something liberals here laughed at when conservatives mentioned it, yet here it is — with one judge suggesting filing knives down because they are “too sharp.”

Pay attention, folks. This is where we are headed in the future if we don’t preserve the Second Amendment.

On Sunday, the U.K’s Telegraph reported that Madge proposed a nationwide program “to file down the points of kitchen knives” in order to address the nation’s “soaring knife crime epidemic.”

According to the Telegraph, the “latest figures show stabbing deaths among teenagers and young adults have reached the highest level for eight years,” noting that overall knife crime had risen 22 percent in 2017.

Madge said that in just the last two months, 77 knife-related “incidents” occurred in Bedfordshire, England.

Three of those “incidents” resulted in death.

According to The Telegraph, these crimes seem to lack any sort of discernible motive. In fact, a boy was stabbed due to an argument he had years before with someone at his junior high school.

Madge stated the vast majority of the knives being carried by young people are kitchen knives, stating “every kitchen contains lethal knives which are potential murder weapons.”

So, now, this guy wants to stop manufacturers, authorities, and shops from stop selling kitchen knives that are eight-to-ten inches in length in order to help curb these attacks.

Because all of the restrictions and bans on guns worked so well to stop violence, didn’t they?

This is pure insanity. You cannot outlaw tools as a means of stopping or controlling evil. This simply does not work because the problem is the wickedness of the human heart, not the tool itself.

Society has banned all talk of God and traditional morality from schools and other forms of culture. Those values are no longer taught at home, in the classroom, in churches, ect. This is what happens when you remove God and His law as your foundation for truth, justice, and right and wrong.

Banning stuff isn’t going to change anything. It’s just going to make criminals and psychopaths more creative.

How much more of this tomfoolery has to go down before people get it?

Liberal Legal Scholar Slams Twitter Over Censoring Trump; Declares ‘Free Speech’ Ultimate ‘Loser’

Published

on

Jonathan Turley, a constitutional law scholar recently warned that Twitter’s choice to fact-check and hide certain tweets from President Trump threatens the concept of free speech in the Unites States. Turley, a liberal, published a blog Friday that said, “Twitter is now making the case for government action to monitor and control social media. The ultimate loser will be free speech.” Thursday night, President Trump reacted to some of the violence and looting happening in the city of Minneapolis over the death of George Floyd, calling those responsible for the chaos “thugs” and threatened to cut loose the military in the city to get control over the situation. In a now hidden tweet, Trump said, “When the looting starts, the shooting starts.” Twitter then hid the tweet, requiring users to click an arrow in order for it to be seen, stating that it broke the rules by “glorifying violence.” Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: “I am still leery of the government intervening on social media,” Turley wrote. “Free speech has few advocates in this fight. It is primary a struggle between Twitter, Trump, and the Democrats over who controls such speech.” Turley said he did not agree with the content of Trump’s tweets about the Minneapolis protesters but that they should not be censored. “Twitter had the chance to admit error and return to neutrality in the interest of free speech. It is clearly more concerned with expressing its views than preserving its forum,” he said. “Frankly, I would not care about such self-inflicted wounds except that free speech will likely suffer the collateral damage from Twitter’s glorifying speech controls.” Turley is right. Twitter has had plenty of opportunities over the last few years to change their strategies involving the engagement of content posted to their site. Instead, they…

Twitter Tags White House Tweet With Warning Label Over Message It Says Broke Rules About ‘Glorifying Violence’

Published

on

Twitter continues to go at it with President Trump, even after he signed an executive order that labeled social media platforms as publishers, thus opening them up to lawsuits over silencing opinions. The White House poked Twitter and basically dared them to put a warning label on the president’s tweet concerning the violence in Minneapolis over the death of George Floyd for a second time. They did. One would think that Twitter would get the message, but they aren’t. Guess they’ll have to get sued a bunch and lose a lot of money before they finally understand that folks, especially the president, aren’t going to take the censorship anymore. Here are more details from The Washington Examiner: Twitter said the White House account “violated the Twitter Rules about glorifying violence” after it repeated a tweet from the president that called the protesters “THUGS” and implied they could be shot. This happened after Trump first posted the tweet on his personal account early Friday morning, and Twitter placed a warning label on it. https://twitter.com/JTHVerhovek/status/1266363516153364480 “These THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd, and I won’t let that happen,” the tweet read. “Just spoke to Governor Tim Walz and told him that the Military is with him all the way. Any difficulty and we will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts. Thank you!” Twitter didn’t remove the tweets posted by the White House and from Trump’s account, but they are hidden and require users to click an arrow in order for them to be seen. There is a message placed over the tweets that says: “This Tweet violated the Twitter Rules about glorifying violence. However, Twitter has determined that it may be in the public’s interest for the Tweet to remain accessible.” As you can see, liberals…
