Re: A man from Kent has been arrested for posting an image of a burning poppy on a social network site
so the moral of the story is that if you know you havent done anything wrong but the cops come kicking down the door, lock and load to go down fighting because the system is run by criminals. amirite?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1579244


The most effective way is without violence; we have to EXPOSE them for what they really are.

This is an attempt to suppress any resistance to government. It is unconstitutional.

In Ireland poppies symbolise the repressive english domination that lasted 800 years here. Irish people were crushed and wiped out from some areas so that the english could infest us. This man did NOTHING wrong.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 16489306


English poppies do remind of Chinese the opium war and their criminal invasive drug trade by the east India company too. So it's pretty offensive to the outsiders to see britons glorify their war criminals as the heros of their own.

There's a difference between offending someone and spewing hatred, incitement, etc.

To all the Ameicans who are up in arms, are you okay with your flag being burned in public then?

It's the same difference.

So, the poppy also means the exact opposite of what the government stipulates it means in several other cultures?


This was a terrible place for them to try and enforce their fictions. It is fail.

Any one should be able to burn whatever the fuck they want as long it doesnt PHYSICALLY hurt someone else or their property.

You hear that all you emotional children out there?? Only PHYSICAL acts should result in broken laws in a supposed "free" country.

Freedom is more important than your ridiculous child like emotional offensiveness.
