So David Cameron wants to imprison a large number of convicted “extremists” in a relatively small area.
Isn’t that the very definition of a concentration camp?
What next – will the Conservative Parasites start ordering people they consider a ‘political danger’ to be locked up there in ‘protective detention’?
Will opponents of the Conservatives be taken there as a warning to those who do not support the Tory regime?
Will their trials take place at the ‘secret’ courts that were established during the Coalition government – or will justice be ignored?
That’s what the Nazis did.
The Tories are certainly following another Nazi policy – eroding our freedoms little by little.
Why not this?
Convicted extremists in the UK could soon be isolated and placed in a single secure unit, in a bid to stop Islamist radicalisation in prison. The full extent of the proposal will figure in an upcoming review by Justice Secretary Michael Gove. However the prospect of a ‘British Guantanamo‘ has already sparked alarm among prison chiefs.
This new proposal is due to be published in March. According to experts, it will set the stage for a radical change in the way the state treats people convicted of extremism. Instead of dispersing them across six maximum security prisons, they could all end up in the same place. Supposedly, this will ‘minimise’ the risk of radicalisation for other prisoners.
Were we to think of Islamist extremism as an infectious disease, the proposal could make sense. Like lepers, convicted terrorists would be completely cut off from the world. Thus they would be unable to spread the ‘infection’ that is Jihadist propaganda.
The problem is, extremism is not an infectious disease, not in that sense. As such, there are several reasons why it is dangerous and wrong-headed to treat it as such.
