If ever there was a reason to recite that exhausted poem about the Nazis, coming for us all, its now. While I have a lot of uncertainties about Britain First, and some of our readers have deep objections to them, as a liberal I cannot allow the arrest of Britain First’s most public figure for giving an unacceptable speech in Dublin go unreported.
Please watch that. Listen to her description of the line of questioning. The UK is totalitarian for all but the elite. Looking for her speech now, ill post it as soon as I can find it.
As an ‘unrelated’ reminder, The Gulag Archipelago is on sale at Audible as an audio book for under $4.00. Really strongly recommend reading/listening to it. Not that the chapters on arrests have anything to do with these two videos or the destruction of basic individual rights or anything.
Interestingly that title doesn’t appear to be available at Audible in the UK. I wonder why?
This may be her speech for which she was arrested:
As the left gains power freedom is disappearing from the world, they are creating a neo feudal system that creates a multi tiered judicial system with different laws for different groups and classes. For decades we in the states have seen the left developing separate educational systems for the different classes while they were doing this the worked to create group rights that apply to different groups with difference rights and liberty for different groups. The rest of the Anglophone world have seen the same attacks on freedom as the left plays their game of divide and conquer. Those who dare to stick their heads up out of the crowd and say this isn’t right. Not all of the people who are sticking their heads up are people we will feel comfortable around, some will be racists but that doesn’t take away their rights of peaceful assembly or their rights of freedom of speech. These rights along with the right to disagree with the government are natural rights that no government has the authority to remove. This action in Britain shows how far down the path of tyranny Britain has tra traveled, the left is busy taking away the freedom of all who are living in the nations that were the cradle of freedom and individual rights. We either take a strong stand now or freedom will disappear for a very long time. without a living example of freedom the nations will bounce from one form of tyranny to another for a Century or better before some nation manages to once agan claw its way up the slope of tyranny to reach the plateau of freedom. Mankind is never more then one generation away from tyranny, lets us work to ensure that our generation doesn’t lose the light of freedom for our descendants.
DAILY MAIL – Deputy leader of far-right group Britain First is charged with using threatening and abusive language at a rally in Belfast
Jayda Fransen, 31, was arrested in Bromley by Northern Ireland police

The deputy leader of far-right group Britain First has been charged with using threatening and abusive language at a rally in Belfast.
Jayda Fransen, 31, is facing the court action in Northern Ireland over a speech she made at an anti-terrorism demonstration in the city on August 6.
Fransen, from Penge, south east London, was arrested by Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) officers on Saturday in Bromley, south east London and taken to Belfast for questioning.
She has been bailed to appear at Belfast Magistrates’ Court on December 14.
In a Facebook Live post from outside Belfast City Airport, Fransen said: ‘I’m free, as you can see, and I’m outside Belfast City Airport.
‘I’ve just been driven here by the police, they took me out of the police station, put me in a police car and drove me straight to the airport and said I’ve got to go straight home.’
Describing her arrest, she said: ‘I was escorted in a police van with four officers up to Liverpool to catch a ferry. Bearing in mind, I was arrested at quarter to four, our ferry was 10.30 at night and it arrived here in Belfast at 6.30 this morning so it’s been quite a jaunt.’
She said police questioned her for around three to four hours, accusing her of being ‘anti-Islamic’, and released her after she was charged.
‘This all relates to a speech that I gave at an event over here where I was invited as a guest speaker, the Northern Ireland Against Terrorism on the 6 August,’ she added.
A PSNI spokesman said: ‘A 31-year-old woman arrested by PSNI Criminal Investigation Branch Detectives in London yesterday has been charged with using threatening, abusive, insulting words or behaviour.
‘She is due to appear at Belfast Magistrates’ Court on Thursday 14 December.’
Britain First leader Paul Golding broke the news to his supporters in a Twitter video on Saturday.
He said: ‘A large group of plain clothes police detectives from Belfast of all places jumped out of nowhere and have arrested Jayda.
‘What have they arrested her for? Both of us addressed, made a speech, at a public demonstration outside Belfast City Hall all the way back in August.
‘The detective I spoke to told me she is being flown to Belfast tonight to be interrogated.
‘It’s absolutely ridiculous – this is non-stop with me and Jayda, non-bloody stop.’
He said his colleague had been arrested for ‘no bloody reason’.
Ms Fransen and Mr Golding were in Belfast on August 6 for a demonstration by around 50 people calling themselves Northern Ireland Against Terrorism, which took place on the same day as a republican march organised by the Anti-Internment League to mark the use of detention without trial by the British Army during the height of the Troubles in 1971.
A PSNI spokesman said: ‘A 31 year old woman has been arrested by PSNI Criminal Investigation Branch Detectives in London today.
‘The arrest was made in Bromley by PSNI detectives working with officers from the London Metropolitan Police Service.
‘The woman is being brought to Belfast to be interviewed under Art 9(1) of the Public Order (NI) Order 1987 in relation to speeches made at the Northern Ireland Against Terrorism Rally on Sunday 6th August this year.’

She is indeed.
Yes she is, no matter what her group stands for she is a very brave woman.
