Man arrested for holding ‘Priti fascist’ sign at #CPC21 – but wasn’t it fair comment?

This story can be summed up in just two tweets:

So the demonstrator who was arrested was right, wasn’t he?

Priti Patel is a fascist.

    Fascist tory puppet police arrest an innocent man because he dared to hold a placard stating the truth! So what crime will the fascist nazi police boys fabricate? Doubtless they’re waiting for duck johnson to create one!

    Wake up peasants this is the reality of our fascist tory dictatorship!

      Is this the same ‘fascist’ police that stood by and let BLM riot, but waded in when anti-lockdown protestors gathered?
      Is this the same ‘fascist’ police that painted their police cars with a rainbow scheme, but arrested a woman for saying trans women aren’t women?
      Is this the same ‘fascist’ police that allowed protestors to block a friggin’ motorway, but arrested Count Dankula after he taught a dog to do the fascist salute as a JOKE?

      Wake up, people, THIS is the reality of the fascism of the Left.

        I very much hope that this comment is not intended seriously. This person does not seem to be making sense at all.

    What a waste of police time..! So, it’s cut the UK police forces down in size and then send them out to arrest people carrying placards – tiny and almost invisible in a crowd in this case – which might offend a vicious and cruel person posing as Home Secretary like Priti Patel AND wasting manpower. What’s it gonna be next: Send the police round to people’s homes; people like me who write something like THIS – and drag them out screaming, perhaps, from the rough handling that they’ll almost certainly be subjected to under today’s Tory policy-driven rough on-the-spot-justice..?! And NO, I’m NOT a natural born police hater; I’ve had members of my family who were police officers, and I’ve worn a uniform myself though it was of the Royal Naval variety, so I do understand how that can affect the viewpoint of people on the street – how they can become overly suspicious of you, bearing in mind that you’re only a “hero” for just as long as the government-of-the-day and the media say that you are..!
