    Man investigated by police for retweeting transgender limerick

    A docker from Humberside has been investigated by police over a limerick he posted on Twitter after an officer claimed it constitutes a ‘hate incident’ against transgender people.

    Harry Miller, 53, from Lincoln was contacted on Wednesday by a community cohesion officer following a complaint that had been made about the plant and machinery dealer’s social media posts.

    Citing 30 potentially offensive tweets, the PC singled out a limerick Mr Miller had retweeted which questioned whether transgender women are biological women. It included the lines: "Your breasts are made of silicone, your vagina goes nowhere."

    Even though no crime was committed, sharing the limerick online was recorded as a ‘hate incident’.

    ...After Mr Miller questioned why the complainant was being described as a “victim” if no crime had been committed, the officer told him: “We need to check your thinking”
    .

    This nonsense is all happening in the UK, but as an American, this sounds absolutely insane. Is free expression over in Airstrip One?

    I'm not sure what exactly a "community cohesion officer" is but I'm prettily sure we don't need any of them here in the US

    Essentially police of vice and virtue. KGB agents, morality police.

    Actually, no. It does not sound insane, because it sounds very normal when you admit the fact that homosexuality is now used as a way to gain power in the USA society.

    Here look at >this evidence< of why it is a huge surprise, that the event in your OP, had not already happened here in the USA.

    You need, truth, then perhaps your posts will cease to exude the stench of deceit. Now, go! Be proud of Obama's accomplishments and the planetary movement he sparked.

    It is the Leftist future of the United States as well. It is where A.O.C. and her sister radical leftist freshmen future LEADERS of the Dem Party are fully intending to force this nation to go. The British -- with their leftists in charge -- simply got there first. Decent of them to let us SEE the end results of what we are fighting against here . . . if one loses the SANITY WAR the the Left.

    It's the bare bones and still at the rudimentary stage of what eventually grew to become the old Soviet Union Political Officer. Not a shock that the Left reproduced the concept in Jolly ol' England.

    I bet your local mirror would, disagree, and that is likely why you avoid it so much.

    What is this, middle school? Look I'll make it simple for you. This is a free speech issue, and you're on the wrong side.

    There once was a man from Glasgow
    His balls were made out of brass, know?
    He clanged them together
    They played stormy weather
    And lightning shot out of his arse, know?

    Aye, aye, aye, aye, gone now is sadness!
