I’m telling you, our rights are slowly but steadily eroding.
While this incident occurred in the United Kingdom, we typically lag behind the United Kingdom by about ten years, so you can anticipate us to follow the same path.
A man in the United Kingdom was recently imprisoned for sharing “offensive memes” about George Floyd’s death, according to the authorities.
Don’t get me wrong: I don’t think people should be posting memes about a dead man, or for that matter, legitimately offensive memes about anyone. I believe that we should all continue to follow the golden rule of treating people as we would like to be treated. There’s a lot of power in that one small thing that every one of us can do.
However, it shouldn’t be a crime to share a meme under any circumstance, maybe with the exception that a genuine threat is made in the meme.
