Paul Weston of the Liberty GB party has been arrested for the heinous crime of, wait for it, quoting Winston Churchill in public.

If there is any genuine resistance in Britain today against jihad terror and Islamic supremacism, it will now champion Paul Weston’s cause. We’ll see. I suspect that more likely the leading “counter-jihadists” in Dhimmi Britannia will pick at Weston’s past statements, saying he wasn’t right just here or just there, and throw him to the wolves.
“Winchester: Churchill Quotation Gets Liberty GB Leader Paul Weston Arrested,” Liberty GB, April 26, 2014:
Today Paul Weston, chairman of the party Liberty GB and candidate in the 22 May European Elections in the South East, has been arrested in Winchester.
At around 2pm Mr Weston was standing on the steps of Winchester Guildhall, addressing the passers-by in the street with a megaphone. He quoted the following excerpt about Islam from the book The River War by Winston Churchill:
“How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property – either as a child, a wife, or a concubine – must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men. Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the faith: all know how to die but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith.”
Reportedly a woman came out of the Guildhall and asked Mr Weston if he had the authorisation to make this speech. When he answered that he didn’t, she told him “It’s disgusting!” and then called the police.
Six or seven officers arrived. They talked with the people standing nearby, asking questions about what had happened. The police had a long discussion with Mr Weston, lasting about 40 minutes.
At about 3pm he was arrested. They searched him, put him in a police van and took him away.”

What an appalling state of affairs it is, that a Briton can be arrested for quoting the opinion of Winston Spencer Churchill, one of our greatest ever Prime Ministers, because the words may give offence to a fascistic ideology, which should have been fought and controlled and not accomodated and pandered to.
If the details of the arrest were reported correctly, and Mr Weston was arrested because Churchill’s opinion on Islam is disliked by those who practise Islam, then that is another indication that the mores of Islam are incompatible with those of free societies. If Mr Weston has been arrested for obstruction of the Queen’s Highway or for being on private space or something unconnected with Bearded Savagery then this story takes on a different character,. However, if he has been arrested purely for speaking words that one loudmouthed and provably violent section of the community has taken objection to, then this is a major infringement on the right of those taking part in the political process to speak their views truthfully.
I agree with the sentiment expressed by Mr Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch, this action will not silence the opinion. Instead, as with the arrest of Tim Burton of LibertyGB at the behest of the Tell Mama organisation, which did a lot to publicise the phrase ‘mendacious grievance-mongering Taqiyya artist’ so this arrest will similarily help to publicise Churchill’s negative opinion of the ideology of Islam.
Everybody who is disturbed by this arrest and what it means for us as a nation, should distribute Churchill’s comments as widely as possible, and most importantly, explain why it is being distributed.
Tweet it on Twitter, put it on Facebook, email it to your friends, put it on your blog, and on bulletin and message boards.
Don’t stop at the internet either; print copies out, place them (without doing any type of criminal damage of course) in phone boxes and in bars, leave copies on buses and trains. Paint it on banners and placards and print it on t-shirts. Give copies to your workmates and relatives. Read this Churchill quote to your friends, phone them and tell them about it, hell, you could even stick it out on Citizens Band Radio Channel 19, or morse code or FAX, or semaphore if you wish, but make sure you distribute this quote and the reason for dissemination, which is that censorship of a political candidate’s choice of words like this is unacceptable in a democratic society.. But whatever you do, don’t flypost it (especially on the walls of a mosque) because that would be illegal.
When the words of Winston Churchill become ‘Samizdat‘, it is a sign that an important red-line has been crossed, both by the advocates and followers of Islam themselves and by their appeasers, quislings and useful idiots within wider society.
Make Churchill Samizdat, defend Paul Weston, and defend your country by sharing the words that the Red/Green alliance of socialists and Islamists would dearly love to hide.
Read Churchill’s words about Islam, and spread them as you will.
Sharing these words of Winston Churchill is one way of peacefully fighting back at what could be a monstrous attack on the rights of a political candidate to speak to the public on the subject of the issues that concern them. A political candidate, whether they are from the Left or the Right, whether their views are sane or mad, must be allowed to set out their stall and use whatever words they think fit. It is for the electorate to decide whether they approve or disapprove of the candidate’s words by voting for or against them at the polling station. The job of sorting the political wheat from the chaff is not the job of random persons from the Town Hall, nor is it that of the police, or the members of the religion of permanent offence, but is purely the responsibility of the voters.
It is still not illegal to express antipathy or dislike of a religious belief or religious beliefs per se, let us all work to keep it that way.
