Still More Koran-Burning Follies

Want to know what will happen to our civil liberties if we let libs drag us down into moonbat dhimmitude? Look no further than Britainistan, where you don't have to burn a Koran to get thrown in jail, you just have to watch someone else doing it:

In a disturbing development, Northumbria Police in Gateshead last week arrested two men after they watched and shared a video on Facebook of a man burning the Koran in the US during the recent 9/11 commemoration at Ground Zero in New York.
The men were drinking in the Bugle pub, Leam Lane, Gateshead, when they were arrested after watching and sharing the videos.

The charge was "suspicion of inciting racial hatred." This is where "hate crimes" legislation inevitably leads: to the criminalization of seeming not to be fond of groups favored by the liberal ruling class.

Closer to home, the guy who actually burned the evil book — Derek Fenton of Bloomingdale, NJ — was fired from New Jersey Transit, with the blessing of the disappointing dhimmi Chris Christie.

Via Dori Monson, here's video of Fenton's incorrect deed that amazingly hasn't yet been pulled from YouTube. Make sure no bobbies are looking before you push play:

Meanwhile, in Florida, authorities are trying to bill Terry Jones over $150,000 just for threatening to burn the Koran. In Iran, peace-loving ayatollahs have issued a fatwa calling for the death of Koran burners. Also in Iran, hundreds of Bibles were burned by "security forces," as the world yawned.
