Britain doesn’t even have a Muslim majority yet, but due to the eager complicity of the liberal dhimmis in charge, this is how intolerable the once great country has already become for non-Muslims who cherish liberty:
As David Jones arrived at the security gates at Gatwick airport, he was looking forward to getting through swiftly so he could enjoy lunch with his daughters before their flight.
Placing his belongings, including a scarf, into a tray to pass through the X-ray scanner he spotted a Muslim woman in hijab pass through the area without showing her face.
In a light-hearted aside to a security official who had been assisting him, he said: “If I was wearing this scarf over my face, I wonder what would happen.”
Big mistake. Jones, creator of the children’s character Fireman Sam, spent the next hour being terrorized by airport and law enforcement officials for having committed a thought crime.
Jones reports on his interrogation:
“I again stated that I had not made a racist remark but purely an observation that we were in a maximum security situation being searched thoroughly whilst a woman with her face covered walked through. I made no reference to race or religion.”
However, from the point of view of our progressive rulers, anything involving any Muslim implicitly involves religion and even race. Jones continues:
“I felt that I made a logical observation. That while everyone was being subjected to an invasive search it was illogical that someone should be let through with their face covered. I am not opposed to having this level of security but it must be equal for all.”
The idea that an infidel should have equality under the law with Muslims in a country run by liberals is not only absurd but literally becoming impermissible to express.
Jones was told he could continue on his way if he would apologize for his imaginary affront to Islam. All you have to do is bow down and kiss the ring of political correctness, and they’ll let you go back to pretending you’re free.
To his credit, Jones refused to apologize. Unfortunately he eventually agreed to the compromise of acknowledging that his remark “could” be considered offensive to a Muslim so that they would finally let him go.
Muslims boast that they will achieve a majority in the UK in 20 years. It may take a little longer, but thanks to policies designed to displace Britain’s native population, it will happen in the foreseeable future. At that point, people like Jones will not be humiliated and harassed, but tortured and killed.
In the meantime, anyone who consents to living under liberals without putting up some kind of fight has no claim to dignity.
Fireman Sam standing by a dog also could be offensive to Muslims.
