Jihadists, paedophile rapists and seditious preachers sleep easy in their beds in modern Britain, but we can take comfort from the fact that police forces are diligent in hunting down people who say hurtful things about members of that topmost protected species, the 'Muslim community'.
Whilst their more extreme elements may gang-rape little English girls, batter women senseless or threaten to behead those who insult Islam, such petty misdemeanours rarely drag the rozzers away from their computers, where more pressing matters demand attention. Nothing can distract our doughty boys-in-blue as, hunched before flickering screens, they endlessly trawl Facebook and Twitter for the crime that really concerns their political masters: the unforgivable crime of criticising Islam.
Last week Liberty GB radio host, Tim Burton, was charged by West Midlands Police with racially aggravated harassment, after his post on Twitter described a prominent individual as "a mendacious grievance-mongering taqiyya-artist".
The delicate flower who needs defending from such criticism is none other than Mr Fiyaz Mughal OBE, founder of the Tell Mama organisation, who in June 2013 was revealed as a deceiver by Telegraph journalist Andrew Gilligan:
The project, called Tell Mama, claimed that there had been a 'sustained wave of attacks and intimidation' against British Muslims after the killing of Drummer Lee Rigby, with 193 'Islamophobic incidents' reported to it, rising to 212 by last weekend.
The group's founder, Fiyaz Mughal, said he saw 'no end to this cycle of violence', describing it as 'unprecedented'. The claims were unquestioningly repeated in the media.
Tell Mama and Mr Mughal did not mention, however, that 57 per cent of the 212 reports referred to activity that took place only online, mainly offensive postings on Twitter and Facebook, or that a further 16 per cent of the 212 reports had not been verified. Not all the online abuse even originated in Britain.
Contrary to the group's claim of a 'cycle of violence' and a 'sustained wave of attacks', only 17 of the 212 incidents, 8 per cent, involved the physical targeting of people and there were no attacks on anyone serious enough to require medical treatment.
As a result of these revelations, Tell Mama had its public funding discontinued; and it's no surprise that some of the taxpayers who have given hundreds of thousands of pounds to that body since its founding two years ago vented their anger publicly, as did Tim Burton again in the following tweet:
Breaking News – Mendacious Muslim scumbag Fiyaz Mughal agrees to stop telling porkies if the British Government gives him his £214,000 back
Let's be clear. Fiyaz Mughal is one of many Islamic propagandists who strive to present 'Islamophobia' as a primary cause of disharmony in our country. The reality, as we know, is that if militant Muslims were to cease bombing, raping, beheading and abusing the British people, the "underlying Islamophobia in our society" (as Mughal terms it) would disappear. But of course it's much easier for cowardly politicians and police chiefs to shoot the messenger than to respond effectively to the growing Islamist menace.
To be fair, we should not single out Mughal for deceiving in the cause of Islam, as the practice is widespread and many Muslims consider it a religious duty. Indeed, they have a special word for it – taqiyya.
The government (whose dupes have given him wads of our cash) and the police (ever fearful of Muslim reaction), seek to stave off criticism of Mughal, and are now following his example and busily transforming every robust verbalisation (i.e. free speech) into a 'hate crime'. Thus, despite the absurdity of the charge against Tim Burton (Islam is not actually a race), this decent, patriotic Englishman now faces a possible prison sentence just for criticising an establishment figure who misled the British public.
Tell Mama has previously threatened numerous members of the public with libel actions for criticising it on Twitter. One of these tweet-criminals opined, "they are just trying to shut down debate". Shutting down criticism of Islam is not only a serious infringement of free speech, but also clears the way for those intent on Islamifying Britain – aided and abetted by treacherous politicians, quisling police and a politicised legal system.
Tim Burton's trial is set for the afternoon of Tuesday 18th February 2014 at Birmingham Magistrates' Court. The magistrates will no doubt be full of the usual political correctness and multicultural idiocy, so he's not expecting a sympathetic hearing. But he will fight his corner, and Liberty GB will stand with him.
Tim will shortly be setting up a PayPal account for donations to his defence fund; once it is in place we'll put a 'Donate' button on this website so that you can contribute. In the meantime, please use the comments section below to show your support.
We will keep you informed of progress in the case.
