Policing with Pride, But No Pride in Policing
Is there a more politicised police force anywhere in the once-was-free world?
British Transport Police officer David Rams, fresh from participating in a gay pride march, tweeted this week:
‘Great to see @BTP represented at Brighton Pride today. Loads of opportunities to join us. We want you to apply to be part of a modern, diverse and inclusive police force.’
The caption appeared alongside a photo of the alphabet soup flag bearing the “Police with Pride” insignia of the police force’s LBGTQ+ Network.
I can’t be sure that police had fluffy pink handcuffs to go with the flag, but I imagine they did.
All British police have to do is catch criminals.
Then again, how are police to catch criminals without a pink baton with a delicate handle made form velvety texture that matches their lipstick?
While crime is soaring and conviction rates hover at or below 5%, UK police are busy waving frilly LGBTQ+ flags paid for by long suffering tax payers.
And it’s not just gay police flags. Even police cars have been turned into gay billboards.
Good luck getting the police to turn up to your house if you are burgled. But UK officers wouldn’t miss a Pride March
But it goes beyond that. Now police are telling gender sensible people they can’t work for them.
In response to British Transport Police participation in a gay pride parade, the force’s media unit tweeted …
‘We love to see it. Inclusion isn’t political, and we’ll always celebrate being as diverse as the communities we protect. If you’re offended by this, please don’t apply to work for us - thanks.’
Don't apply to work for us because we don't want diverse opinions.
We don't want people who question orthodoxies.
We don't want people who can think for themselves.
Only people who agree with our controversial sociopolitical ideology need apply to work in the British police force, where everything is policed except crime.
That is the very definition of a political statement, and an expressed intention to discriminate against people who do not share your political beliefs.
The BTP are now guilty of discrimination themselves if they are actively discouraging people with protected beliefs (such as faith) from applying. I hope they have consulted their HR or legal team about this.
Most people don’t want to work for the Stonewall gestapo anyway.
Police who take sides in politics are no longer police, but ideological brownshirts.
By deciding to play identity politics, the police have begun to enforce an ideology against the people, instead of simply enforcing the law.
Think I’m exaggerating? Earlier this month Hampshire police arrested a man, taking him from his home in handcuffs, for posting this image on social media …
I wrote about it here.
According to one of the five police officers involved in the arrest, someone was “very offended” by the image.
Why would we be surprised at five coppers dragging a man away in cuffs for posting an image of LGBTQ flags arranged as a swastika? Haven’t the police already warned citizens?
The same police force that says ‘If you’re offended by our LGBTQ+ fetish, please don’t apply to work for us’ is hardly going to let you get away with mocking the LBGTQ ideology, even if in arresting you they prove your point - that the Pride movement is authoritarian.
Do British police have any idea how much contempt most people now hold them in?
They want to police with pride, but seem to have lost all pride in policing.
