Stupid British Authorities Arrest a Man for Merely Threatening to Burn an ISIS Flag Outside a UK Mosque

Everyone in power in England is now a mini Neville Chamberlain, but this time instead of lying down for Nazis they are lying down for Radical Muslim terrorists. We see that once again in the arrest of a Brit who went on his Facebook page and merely threatened to burn an ISIS flag in front of a mosque. He now faces a seven-year prison sentence if convicted of a “hate crime.”

There have been several incidents of ISIS flag burning around the UK, but it seems that in this case the accused never actually burned any flag. It appears he only threatened to do so on Facebook. Now he faces prosecution.

Kenneth Meek, 54, of Livingston, West Lothian in Scotland has been charged with one count of using threatening language and two counts of inciting racial hatred after he made a Facebook post last September. It is alleged, reports the Scotsman, that Meek posted on Facebook about his intention to go to a mosque in his home-town during Friday prayers and burn the black battle-flag of the Islamic State outside in a protest against Islamic Extremism.

Police Scotland told Breitbart London that Meek was arrested on September 15th, which suggests his own social media post was related to the ‘Burn the ISIS Flag Challenge’ which was gaining traction at the time. An article published in the Daily Mail only a week before Meek’s arrest publicised the challenge, with pictures of people from around Britain and the world gathering to burn the ISIS flag. In one photograph, which was captioned as having been taken in London, a large group of people stand around a burning flag in public.

This is an outrage.
