Rob Hughes had been speaking in Basildon, Essex when a woman who said she was “gay and proud” shouted: “Get down off your pedestal, you judgmental ***. Homophobia is not in this town” – despite the fact Mr Hughes had not even mentioned homosexuality.
Mr Hughes was later arrested after police said they had received a complaint that he had been using homophobic language.
He told the Daily Mail: “I was taken to the police station, processed, mugshot, fingerprints, DNA, the whole works. I was in a cell for about 11 hours, and then my solicitor finally arrived.
“I was interviewed by the police, they asked me a number of questions – “why were you out”, “what were you saying”, “did you say what the people said” – I said “no”, of course. I was polite and courteous.

The United Kingdom is polluted with Progs ... it's a good study in how simple freedoms, so long taken for granted, can be steadily eroded when Progs run the place:
Especially when they are worth more dead than alive to the Progs who run their communities:
Don’t make me laugh.
Black Lives are nothing more than sacrifices to the cause of empowering the elite few who control the levers of Central Government.

... you lose:
This isn’t really news. It’s just a reminder that the air strikes on ISIS are being run in the same disastrous fashion as those in Afghanistan. And it didn’t begin with Obama. Lest we forget, on the day before 9/11, Bill Clinton was boasting that he had let Osama bin Laden go to avoid collateral damage.
Obama Inc. talks about how the Iraqis don’t want to fight. It neglects to mention that it isn’t letting the military fight.

... if it's Blacks killing Blacks.
Five people were killed and as many as six others were injured during shootings Friday night and Saturday in Baltimore, police said.
Baltimore City police are operating on high alert after a spate of violence.
"The reality is over the last five days, our guys have taken off 10 guns in separate situations, our guys have served search warrants on North Avenue and taken off some bad characters there. We had a pursuit today around Mondawmin. The officers did a good job in making arrests out there. And earlier this week, unfortunately, in the Eastern (District), where we have some traditional gang violence, five were shot and officers engaged and took two of those guys to jail, so there's a consistent pattern of officers doing a good job out here," Police Commissioner Anthony Batts said.
The official start of summertime in Chicago began violently, with six people dead and at least 26 others injured in shootings across the city.
Among those injured was a 4-year-old girl, identified by family as Jacele Johnson, who was shot in the head while sitting inside a car outside of a prom party Friday evening. The incident happened at about 8 p.m. near West 70th and South Justine streets in the West Englewood neighborhood.

Economic Suicide Pact:
May 19 California and leaders of 11 states and provinces signed an agreement on Tuesday to limit their output of heat-trapping greenhouse gases 80 to 95 percent by 2050, a goal they hope will help prevent runaway climate change.
The target, which is based on a 1990 benchmark, will allow the individual governments, which collectively represent more than $4.5 trillion in GDP and 100 million people, to tailor reduction plans to fit their regional needs.
Signatories of the agreement were Acre, Brazil; Baden-Württemberg, Germany; Baja California, Mexico; Catalonia, Spain; Jalisco, Mexico; Ontario, Canada, British Columbia, Canada; Wales, and the U.S. states of Oregon, Vermont and Washington.
Yep ... the war is over. Tell that to the Sunnis who joined US forces to push out the same bastards who are now beheading their way across Iraq.
Whether the war was a mistake, is debatable, especially when looking through the prism of 2001, and not the prism of hindsight ... which is usually 20/20.
What is not debatable, is that when O took over, he was handed a stable democratic Iraq where the military was well on its way to becoming a professional institution based on merit ... not graft. In fact, Iraq was so stable that international banks and oil companies were pouring in. Iraq was seeing less barbarism than it had seen in decades and the entire country was full of hope.
It also is a fact that both military, intelligence, and political advisers warned O that a complete US pull out would be a disaster.
And finally, the canard being pushed by O and his useful idiots, that the pull out was necessary because a Status of Forces agreement couldn't be reached is just that, a canard. O put virtually no effort either diplomatically or economically into getting that agreement. His arrogant crowing about the withdrawal makes that clear.
So, here we are, battling the barbarians again, and this time, even Canada is involved.
As for America's closest allies post-surge ... the Anbar Sunni ...
The government’s effort to foster Sunni fighters, always a seemingly halfhearted program, now feels almost incidental as thousands of Shiite militiamen are flooding into Anbar to take up the fight against the Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIL.
A ceremony for a group of Sunni tribal fighters stationed at a base in Habbaniya, a lakeside town in Anbar, to receive new American-supplied weapons had been scheduled for Monday, but was canceled because of the Ramadi crisis. Instead, nearly 3,000 Shiite militiamen arrived at the outpost.
The collapse of Anbar has also set in sharp relief the continuing tragedy of Iraq’s Sunnis, beginning with the American invasion in 2003 that, almost instantly, upended the old social order of Sunni prominence. With the majority Shiites thrust into power, the Sunnis were sidelined, many banished from public life for good because of their ties to Saddam Hussein’s Baath Party.
... and more JV Team adventures at SDA and at GWP.

Cue the riots:
An eruption of gunfire outside a South Shore homicide scene about 3 a.m. Monday morning scattered screaming mourners into the neighborhood as police drew weapons and moved toward the shooting.
About 100 yards away, a 24-year-old man lay bleeding from abdomen and leg wounds, the 49th person shot in the city since Friday afternoon.
