Prosecutors adopt shocking new 'thought crime' standard
Members of the Crown Prosecution Service in the United Kingdom â€“ the equivalent of the U.S. Justice Department â€“ must follow a new â€śthought crimeâ€ť standard based on the alleged victimâ€™s personal â€śperception.â€ť
In other words, prosecutors must regard a crime a being motivated by hate if the person â€śperceivesâ€ť himself to be of a protected class and â€śperceivesâ€ť that the accused was motivated by hate.
The concept was featured by George Orwell in his book â€ś1984,â€ť which described a thoughtcrime as a politically unorthodox belief, such as â€śdoubts that contradictâ€ť the governmentâ€™s prescribed belief system.
In the U.K., however, it appears to be reality....
"Nineteen Eighty-Four (1949), by George Orwell, the Thought Police (Thinkpol) are the secret police of the superstate Oceania, who discover and punish thoughtcrime, personal and political thoughts unapproved by the Party. The Thinkpol use criminal psychology and omnipresent surveillance (telescreens, microphones, informers) to search for and find, monitor and arrest all citizens of Oceania who would commit thoughtcrime in challenge to the status quo authority of the Party and the regime of Big Brother. In the story, the Thinkpol conduct false-flag operations (e.g. The Brotherhood) to lure non-conformist members of the Party to expose themselves as politically subversive. " (from Wiki)
Looks like Orwell was way ahead of his time. Prophetic ideas.
Today Big Brother PC Liberalism is fast becoming the ruling dictator of ideology in the western nations. The media is also involved as the mouth-piece of said Liberalism. Satan must be really happy with this idea of his.
DEFINITELY A PERVERSION, CONVOLUTION & TWISTING OF THE TRUE KING JAMES HOLY BIBLE SCRIPTURE[S]-/-HOLY-WRIT WHICH STATES:
"...THINGS WHICH ARE SEEN (LOOKED-UPON OR GAZED) WERE NOT MADE OF THE THINGS THAT DO APPEAR (&-OR ARE 'PERCEIVED')."--HEBREWS 11:3b
ALL THE ABOVE'S ARTICLE "THOUGHT-CRIME"-HUB-BUB IS NOTHING BUT PAVING THE WAY FOR THE ANTICHRIST-BEAST OF REVELATION 13:
"WHO OPPOSETH AND EXALTETH HIMSELF ABOVE ALL THAT IS CALLED GOD, OR THAT IS WORSHIPPED; SO THAT HE AS GOD SITTETH IN THE TEMPLE OF GOD (REBUIT IN JERUSALEM), SHEWING HIMSELF THAT HE IS GOD."--2 THESSALONIANS 2:4
"AND THEY WORSHIPPED THE DRAGON WHICH GAVE POWER UNTO THE BEAST: AND THEY WORSHIPPED THE BEAST, SAYING, WHO IS LIKE UNTO THE BEAST ? WHO IS ABLE TO MAKE WAR WITH HIM ?
AND THERE WAS GIVEN UNTO HIM A MOUTH SPEAKING GREAT THINGS AND BLASPHEMIES; AND POWER WAS GIVEN UNTO HIM TO CONTINUE FORTY AND TWO MONTHS...
AND ALL THAT DWELL UPON THE EARTH SHALL WORSHIP HIM..."--REVELATION 13:4,6,7...
AS I'VE SAID AFORE:
HIS NAME: THE BEAST aka DEMETRIUS-ROMANUS/DEMETRIUS-THE-ROMAN[IAN]

You're thinking of Rene Descartes. He offered an epistemology absent revelation, starting by doubting everything. The French have been perhaps the most deeply influenced by his methods (not his conclusions), often failing hilariously.

Douglas America better take heed of these things happening in Britain, as a warning of how nations can develop sinfully.
The U.S. Is relatively young as the nations go so perhaps has time to observe and be warned???

I consider the above to be beyond illogical. If I say something to a black and that black perceives that it is racist, then it is racist. Same thing goes for females and all forms of the LGBT movement. And if someone is a Muslim, Hindu, etc., the same thing applies. They are always being attacked for their faith.
Just look at the group of congressional ladies called the â€śsquadâ€ť for the clearest example. Trump recently said that a certain black politician should clean us his own crime ridden, rat infested neighborhoods. Because the fellow was black, then the comment was racist??
Thought crimes are nothing new in England: The Treason Act of 1547 made it unlawful to deny that Henrv VIII was Supreme Head of the Church, or to say anyone else should be King. It was repealed in 1553 under Mary I.
Perception is reality, at least that's what's been touted for quite a while on this side of the Pond for a couple of decades at least.
So what if someone's "perception" is wrong? Case in point - About a year ago, I refilled a prescription right before traveling. It was difficult but I was able to do so...the pharmacist had to engage an early refill code and the pharmacy had just enough to give me a complete refill, and I couldn't come back the next day as we were to be traveling. The technician who filled the script said that I was "lucky" because everything fit together right down to having just enough pills. I said not at all but that the Lord was caring for me. His eyes and mouth opened wide as if in disbelief so I said it again. We later learned that this man is gay and married to another man. His reaction was more likely one of offense...how could anyone mention anything about God to him as he is rejecting the Lord outright. So my supposed microaggression could have been reported as a hate crime under this law or policy when I meant nothing of the sort...just giving God the glory for the outcome. Turned out that I needed that refill before I could have gotten back to the pharmacy.
