A Welsh man has been arrested for telling a joke about the so-called “terrorist” attack in London earlier this week.
On Monday, a lunatic – who lives in a tent – mowed down a bunch of Muslims near Finsbury Park Mosque with a hired.
A guy decided to make a joke about it.
Richard Evans allegedly posted on Facebook: “It’s a shame they don’t hire out steam rollers or tanks could have done a tidy job then.”
The 37-year-old, believed to be the son of an owner of the Rhondda Cynon Taff company whose van was used in the attack, is now in custody.
Evans is being “held on suspicion of displaying threatening, abusive, insulting written material with intent that is likely to stir up racial hatred,” according to BBC News.
The full post, which was shared to Twitter by others, said: “Glad I’m not running the van hire the police wouldn’t like what my answer would be.
“It’s my dad’s company I don’t get involved it’s a shame they don’t hire out steam rollers or tanks could have done a tidy job then.”
This is a mild joke about the attack and absolutely not worth the time of the police. Freedom of speech is truly dying in the United Kingdom.
The mainstream media, police and politicians are desperately trying to label attacker Darren Osborne a terrorist, as if he were somehow comparable to Islamic State fundamentalists.
This is your terrorist: Lately split up with wife, lives in a TENT, is mentally ill according to family, unemployed, thrown out a pub the night before, said a racist remark to a child and begged pedestrians he ran over to kill him. Reducing the term “terrorist” to this sort of low level weirdo is going to dilute the seriousness of the threat from radical Islam.
