UK Police Department Has Insane Request for Citizens. The Term "Orwellian" Doesn't Even Come Close...

We all know the UK has, for some reason, dived headfirst into a radical acceptance of political correctness and progressivism.

A nation that once prided itself on establishing free speech and personal liberty (although the US certainly took those concepts to a whole new level, no doubt) seems to be slipping back once again into an authoritarian monarchy, with a decidedly modern twist.

Still, it is stunning what the South Yorkshire Police just requested of their citizens.

They’re asking locals to report “non-crime hate incidents.”

In other words…they’re asking people to turn anyone in who is mean to them.

I’m sorry, does anyone else think this is absolutely frightening? 

Here’s the tweet that has sent waves around the free world:

If you find this absolutely stunning and outrageous, you’re not alone. Comments under the tweet seem to be almost entirely critical.

Here are some tweets that give you a good idea of how locals feel about this insane request:

This is absolutely unreal. It is the literal establishment of the Thought Police of Orwell’s fiction.

Orwell, of course, wrote 1984 as a critique of post-war British intelligence, but it’s very likely he had no idea just how similar his country’s government would eventually become to his fictitious totalitarian regime.
