A British minister who criticized a trans woman is now facing new charges under anti-terrorism laws.

The French lawmaker who was accused of endangering the public by portraying immigrants as a threat to society is going on trial today, while a Christian street preacher in the UK is facing criminal prosecution for calling a trans lady a “gentleman” and a “man in woman’s dress.” David McConnell, a Christian preacher, was detained by the counter-terrorism unit despite having been convicted of “harassment” in connection with the incident in question last year.

Nicholas Brock, a 52-year-old neo-Nazi, was found guilty of a mental offense in 2018 and sentenced to prison for the “poison ideology” found in the home he shared with his mother in Maidenhead, Berkshire.

Judge Peter Lodder QC condemned Brock’s Nazi and other bigoted beliefs, saying, “it is apparent that you are a right-wing extremist, your passion for this vile and toxic philosophy is proven by the vivid and racist iconography which you have studied and appeared to share with others.” Despite Brock’s elderly, mobility issues, and no evidence of spreading to others, he still sentenced him to prison for his extreme views.

The UK government is committed to tackling all forms of toxic ideology which have the potential to threaten society. The recently proposed Criminal Justice (Incitement to Violence or Hatred and Hate Offenses) bill in Ireland makes it possible to prosecute citizens for “preparing or holding material intended to provoke violence or hatred against others based on their protected characteristics.” This has the potential to have far-reaching effects on politics and literature and has led to the broadening of these prosecutions to thinking crimes.

Proponents of free expression have long worried about the UK’s deteriorating environment for dissenting viewpoints, as a man was found guilty of making a tweet about slain soldiers while under the influence of alcohol and another was taken into custody for wearing a shirt criticizing law enforcement.

In the West, free expression is rapidly deteriorating due to a culture of censorship and speech offenses. This case illustrates the decline of a vital constituency that has long fought for the defense of this fundamental freedom. The definition of hate speech and other “malicious communications” is still open to wide interpretation, and the list of prohibited words, phrases, and even hand gestures continue to grow. More and more people are giving in to the lure of censorship and choosing to quiet those who have different opinions than their own.
