A Liberal Democrat activist who sits on two national party committees has been suspended from her regional party after a string of sexist comments on social media. The activist in question, Sarah Noble, made multiple tweets of a disturbingly hateful nature, including “kill all men”, “fuck men”, and “die cis[gendered] scum”.
The comments were brought to light by by HEqual, a gender egalitarian campaigning group. After being made aware of them, former Lib Dem Equalities Minister Jo Swinson was quick to condemn Noble’s comments. Writing on Facebook, Swinson said the comments were “completely unacceptable” and “in no way represent the views of Liberal Democrats”. The former Minister also said that Noble has been asked to delete her tweets and apologise. No apology has yet been forthcoming.
A man who told a 12-year-old boy who was selling poppies to raise money for The Royal British Legion that he would have him “shot by the Taliban” has walked free from jail.
Adelso Saws, who already has a conviction for armed robbery, was let off with a suspended sentence after being found guilty of threatening the Army cadet, The Express reports.
The slap-on-the-wrist comes after Romanian Marius Dura was also handed a suspended sentence after admitting he told two army cadets he was going to “chop their heads off” back in February.
Saws, 34, from Kilburn in Derbyshire told the boy he was not going to buy a poppy from him, which raises money for people who have served in the British Armed Forces, because “all you do is kill Muslims”.
The criminal, who served a ten year sentence for armed robbery and another five years for affray, then ran to his car and sped off when an older cadet challenged him.
I Am Going to Have You Shot by Terrorists': Man Who Threatened 12-Year-Old Poppy Seller Walks Free
Threats, Violence and Hate have always been the left's favourite debating tools
Threats of violence and even death are being used to stop UKIP from campaigning for the general election as the hard left try to stamp the party out.
Groups including ‘Stand Up To UKIP’ have warned UKIP candidates not to turn up to hustings while activists claim to have been spat at in the street, the Express reports.
And across the country, campaign offices have been vandalised, with socialists boasting on twitter they would even set fire to a shop with UKIP supporters still inside it.
If She Opens The Door, Shoot Her!” Left Wing Threats Against UKIP Candidates Spreads To Norfolk
An anonymous letter was set to a candidate in West Lancashire threatening him if he turned up to a hustings event – a key mechanism in Britain’s democratic process.
Jack Sen was told the event last Tuesday “would go tragically for all involved” if he turned up, and was signed from ‘Standing Up To UKIP’
Mr Sen said: “I would have loved to go to the hustings, but I’ve been warned that because it was a co-ordinated letter, it’s high risk for me and my family.
In Great Yarmouth, police were called after residents of Northgate Street in the town were visited by a group of four men insisting they remove their UKIP poster on their windows.
When the home owners refused to do so, they were threatened and eventually took the posters down – before the men drove off.
The seat was a key target for UKIP before its young candidate, Matt Smith, had to resign over allegations he has since been cleared of. His replacement, Alan Gray, is still doing well in the polls but is unlikely to win although the party should pick up local council seats.
However, this did not stop thugs driving past the house where he and his wife, who are both councillors on Great Yarmouth Borough Council, live, shouting “If she opens the door, shoot her!”. The police are said to be investigating the incident having spoken to Mrs Gray.
The Labour party in the constituency have also been accused of inventing fake UKIP policies as they try to win the coastal seat from Conservative Minister Brandon Lewis.
Is that enough to convince you that while those silly, bigoted airheads whose opinions follow the latest Facebook meme might screech about UKIP being extremists, it is really the various groups of neo Nazi bigots on the 'left' of the political spectrum that rely on smears, lies, violence, thuggery and brownshirt tactics because they have no cogent arguments to offer.
Their WE ARE RIGHT BECAUSE WE SAY SO case is not exactly scintillating rhetoric is it.
Labour Scourge Of Tax Avoiders Is A Tax Dodger? WTF is going on?
We have often made points about the hypocroisy of the left, particularly those lefties, but surely Margaret Hodge (nee Oppenheim - the diamond people) is the undisputed champ of left wing hypocrites. As a senior Labour MP Margaret was always eager to condemn tax avoidance. Unfortunately like most self righteous Labour millionaires she did not practice what she preached.
The Baltimore Riots: The Verdict Of Baseball Team The Orioles Owner's Son
In the wake of violent protests that left eastern USA port city Baltimore in flames and were triggered by the funeral of Freddie Gray who died after sustaining a spinal injury while being taken into policy custody, American politicians and media commentators are struggling to explain to the public how the events of Monday evening could happen in twenty - first century America.
