Police officers in Norwich, England have recorded a “hate-related public order offence” against a local resident who flew the Confederate flag to mark the anniversary of the death of Civil War General Stonewall Jackson.

Last week, Emily Robinson, a 34-year-old teacher — who recently moved back to the small English city from the left-progressive enclave of Brighton — made a complaint to the police about the house flying the Confederate flag. 

The house reportedly has a longstanding tradition of flying different world flags on days associated with them, with a note posted explaining the history of the flag for the public to read.

Yet the teacher apparently took offence at the house flying the rebel flag after spotting it on a walk with her artist partner.

She told the Eastern Daily Press: “The Confederate flag is the flag used by southern states in the American Civil War who were fighting for the right to keep black slaves. It directly represents support for slavery.”

“To me, this is a great opportunity to educate people on how damaging this is to many people who are a minority in our lovely city — as I know many people may not have any reason to know why it is such a big deal,” she pronounced.

“I believe it is our responsibility, as white people in this country, to stand up to racism.”

In response to Ms Robinson’s complaint, police issued “words of advice” to the owner of the house and recorded the flag flying as a “hate-related public order offence”. 

The incident is just the latest in a long line of police forces being used to enforce speech codes and other limits on freedom of expression in Britain, which, unlike the United States, does not have a First Amendment-style protections for speech.

Over the past six years, for example, police across the country have recorded some 120,000 allegations of so-called “non-crime hate incidents” in their databases, meaning that the supposed offence is visible on background checks.

  1. Police officers in Norwich, England have recorded a “hate-related public order offence”

    Not a crime then, just a pretendy offence which the police, on zero authority, have made up. They do it a lot because they cook the books to make themselves look better and spend their time agitating for Marxist causes.

    The resident should fly the flag, tell the police to eff off and sue them for defamation. The police have zero authority to decide what behaviour is wrong and deserves sanction.

  2. She told the Eastern Daily Press: “The Confederate flag is the flag used by southern states in the American Civil War who were fighting for the right to keep black slaves. It directly represents support for slavery.”

    Well said lady.

  3. Harry is a lost soul, who will spend the rest of his life dishonoring his family on the telly for cash.

    Displaying the rebel flag does not necessarily represent support for slavery, or anything like it.

    It has been twisted into that.

  4. And yet nobody complains about the Hammer and Sickle, despite the Stalinist mass murders, the Ukraine famine, the gulags…we live in a crazy world

  5. Those people are the foundation of the left Michael, most are just to “educated” to know it.

  6. The apologists for the Confederate rebels usually trot out the revisionist lie that their secession from the Union in 1860 had nothing to do with slavery, it was all about 25 other things. And therefore the Confederate flag has nothing to do with slavery either.

    This nonsense is demolished by the words of the secessionists themselves. Many of their leaders in 1860 and subsequently were quite explicit that they were seceeding and fighting to preserve slavery. So it’s a historical fact that their flag is a flag of slavers. End of.

  7. No apology from anyone is necessary, people do not have to apologize for flying a Rebel Flag, an IRA, Flag, or a Nazi Flag….. they can say, blacks should be owned. they can say jews, or the british should die… the can say white people and cops should be fried like Bacon…..

    You people are willing peasants…..

  8. It is only an offense or crime if they actually DO any of those things….. Free Speech means even hate speech is protected ya serf….

  9. they can say, blacks should be owned.

    Sure, but they can’t say that the Confederate flag is not a slaver’s flag. Because that’s just a damn lie.

  10. It is only an offense or crime if they actually DO any of those things

    I never said it’s an offence or a crime. Of course you should be free to celebrate slavery if that’s what floats your boat. They still do it in Dixie all the time.

  11. No apology from anyone is necessary, people do not have to apologize for flying a Rebel Flag

    Maybe you should read what I posted. I referred to the apologists for the Confederacy and slavery, because the two things go together. Just like Sinn Fein – IRA.

  12. I read what you posted… your panties are in a knot over a flag and the fact that people who fly it support it and deny what it means….

    What I’m saying is they have a right to…. no matter how stupid they are or how much it offends anyone.

  13. We both agree they have a right to venerate that flag if they want to. But I’m saying that we should be honest about what that flag stands for. I don’t give a ***k about people being offended, but I do care about historical truth, and the truth is that flag stands for states that seceded from the Union and went to war to protect slavery. End of.

  14. I agree….

    Never forget my favorite American General William Tecumseh Sherman…. his March to the see won the War.
