Everything About You

Posted on March 14, 2024 by

We’ve just submitted this Freedom Of Information request to Police Scotland:

I seek the following information with regard to Police Scotland’s programme of materials surrounding the implementation of the Hate Crime and Public Order (Scotland) Act 2021:

(1) What was the total cost of the “Hate Monster” campaign?

(2) Of that, how much was spent on the production of the “Have you met the Hate Monster?” video (below)?

(3) Which pronouns should be used when referring to the Hate Monster in reporting of the campaign? Does the Hate Monster have a sex and/or gender? Were any full-body images of the Hate Monster commissioned, or only its upper body? If the former, please supply any such images held by Police Scotland.

(4) Would the reference on this page to “young men aged 18-30 […] with ideas about white-male entitlement” constitute a possible hate crime or hate incident, under the protected characteristic of race, since it seems likely to stir up hatred of young white men as being disproportionately bigoted and violent on the basis of their colour and lead to their victimisation?

(5) If so, is there a particular third party (such as a sex shop or mushroom farm) to whom this crime/incident should be reported, as when the alleged offender was the police a person might for obvious reasons not “feel comfortable reporting the incident to the police”, as noted on the campaign website?

(6) Which organisations, if any, were employed to provide suitable training to the staff of Third Party Reporting Centres and how much, if anything, were they paid?

(7) Are Third Party Reporting Centres required to accept any report, or can they use their discretion to refuse some reports if they find them objectionable or offensive?

(8) Are there circumstances whereby a report of a hate crime/hate incident could itself constitute a hate crime/hate incident?

    I had just posted in the previous thread when this came up so will repost it here as I believe it is still relevant.

    Canada has previously been mentioned but not Eire which has a greater similarity to Scotland politically. A coalition of New Irish and Greens who appear to have ulterior motives. The current and previous Ministers For Children are/were childless homosexuals the latter of which went back to the US to work on the 2020 Biden campaign and the current is a friend of Peter Tatchell. There is quite clearly a pattern of behaviour here with regard to Western governments, people who literally hate the host populations and wish to see them replaced and their children queered.

    Eire is also introducing Hate Speech Laws, purely a coincidence, no doubt. Scroll down to Demonstration Test.

    Top marks for the “Feed Me” t-shirt because this is what’s it’s really all about. You can’t have hate if somebody is not out generating it, and the thing the campaigners against hate really need is more hate, otherwise they go out of business.

    About a fiver on Fiverr by the looks of it… Probably about £20K all up though once ‘somebody’s pal that dizz anymayshuns’ (i.e. the person who actually paid the Fiver to Fiverr) invoiced Police Scotland/SG.

    If you look at most of the A/V material coming out of the SG; it’s all very low quality ‘amateur camcorder’ stuff; but it does cost a fortune… Because while there are competent/reasonably priced producers of such materials in Scotland; they’re not of ‘the chosen few’. i.e. – The Milngavie Mafia as we used to call them back in the Red Road.

    There’s always been an element in the supposed left/progressive side of things that despises the working class for not being pliant enough for them and not jumping to the tune of the middle class. Even during the post war period, the Heath government of the 60s and 70s and Scotland from around 2008-2017 there was an element of contempt.

    But this hate crime bollocks is just complete hatred of the working class, especially if you’re white and male. For these people that places them at the bottom of the pile even though these people didn’t grow up with the same chances they did or indeed, grow up in secure middle class households. One needs only to look at the lack of interest now in making people’s lives better and the like of this nonsense to see their priorities now.

    And yes, I’ll be filling in a hate speech report on the 1st of April complaining about that being hate speech. Play them at their own games & see how long it takes for the law to be binned. If everyone does this I give it 18 months.

    I would encourage every white male aged 18 to 30 in Scotland to report this publication to their MSP and the Lord Advocate’s office directly as there’s no point reporting it to the same people who published it. The reason being, this document clearly discriminates against them and incites at least anger towards them and at worst violence towards them by accusing them without data or even a definition of “hate crime” of being the perpetrators of so-called hate crimes with no ability for them to defend themselves. At a time when MPs and MSPs are complaining about the levels of hatred towards them turning to violence they should know better than to label, accuse and denigrate an entire demographic and thus direct the attentions of those more radical and violent balaclava wearing, terrorist looking extremists amongst far left activism who think they are victims of such “hate”!

    If Stonewall, or one government funded organisation was not involved in the drafting of this I’ll be amazed. I’d bet serious money on it and I’m not a betting man as the fact is there’s a very good reason why they’re being shifty about who drafted this and it’s the same reason Creative Scotland are failing to release the application for the live sex show which is they know they’ll make a bad situation worse and people will have to lose jobs/funding.

    Third party centres are open to abuse. There’s also a GDPR question which I’ve not seen answered, and also, we’re actually as a nation saying ‘vigilantism is fine’ because essentially this is what this is. It’s making the people police each other which is not how an open, civil society works. I think the GDPR issue needs to be tested as again, this is something which could bring it down quickly.

    If someone goes into a third party centre, reports a ‘hate crime’. Say for example, they’ve been called a ‘Holocaust denier’ by a Trans activist for saying that Trans wasn’t a thing in Nazi Germany and that only four transvestites were murdered and that’s because they were gay and/or Jewish. Will the centre take that report or will a TRA working there bin the report so it never reaches anyone further up the food chain, and oh, just who is further up the food chain for these centres?

    Or if I go in an report an Orange Walk for religious bigotry but the centre refuses it as they’re sympathetic to the Orange Order? There’s dozens of scenarios that quite simply I can see being thrown out by the centres because of their own personal politics/beliefs but would clearly meet the ‘hate crime’ criteria under this new law.

    All really great points. There’s no sign there’s going to be any transparency or due diligence, so this is a GDPR nightmare in the making.

    If I walk in, make a report someone say, at the sex shop disagrees with & decides to tell his mates my details so they can harass me then what happens there? How can we trust these places if those in charge refuse to tell us how things are working and if valid concerns are being dealt with.

    Also, are all of those in these centres subject to not only basic safeguarding so is there going to be disclosure done on all these people working there? As an example, is anyone with a criminal conviction for stalking or harassment going to be taking people’s details?

    I do think there’s a very, very good chance of clogging the system up, especially if people mass report politicians so as soon as say, Patrick Harvie calls someone ‘cis’ I’m reporting him. As soon as any of these people trip up, they’re getting reported.

    So give it six months & I think if enough people use the system as it is, then it’ll be pushed to breaking point as I really, seriously don’t think these people considered how it’ll be used against them as they’re so convinced of their righteousness and virtue.

    Good one, Rev.

    We are now entering Stasi territory. Don’t like your neighbour? He managed to buy a bike and you’re still without one, report him or her for hate crimes. The sex shop has to be the ultimate in p**s-take. Really? Some big, hairy AGP or fetishist is going to go in there and blow his cover because, if the report is investigated and the police think they have a case, it’s witness time, Stasi spy, or are they going to ditch trials and go straight to prison? You’ll have to turn up or give your evidence via video-link. Oh dear, the family didn’t know? What a shame, you’re outed now, mate. Same goes for all the other categories. Somebody will know and somebody will tell you snitched.

    When the Stasi files were opened to the public, families broke up, children refused to speak to parents and vice versa, neighbour turned on neighbour, teachers on students, students on teachers, husbands on wives, wives on husbands. Lots of stabbings and beatings-up, even disappearances where no body found. The former East German Kripo had their hands full. Getting the population to snitch on each other is never, ever a good idea. Think Nazi Germany and the reprisals, Stalinist Russia and the spate of revenge killings. People will seek revenge, snitches, and you won’t be able to hide forever.

    John C: young, white working-class men will be a target, without doubt, but this is aimed primarily at women, hence no protection for them, to silence and intimidate them – the legislators think. State-sponsored intimidation of 50% of the population at the behest of the men in frocks.

    “Back in January Todd expanded on the inability of distinguishing
    facts from fiction, which is also the basis of trans-genderism, during an interview with Le Figaro. From its English translation:

    Q: Over time, haven’t you become a bit of a reactionary?”

    And there you have it; the idea that a man can really become a woman and a woman a man; to assert something that is biologically impossible; to deny the reality of the world; to assert the false is now considered not only reactionary but also a “Hate Crime” in an artificially manufactured hierarchy of oppression driven by a nihilistic purity spiral.

    The Hate Crime legislation is itself a hate crime against the Reality Based Community which is surely the most oppressed group in the minority of the planet which is the Collective West.

    @Robert Hughes, Sinn Fein officially introduced the demonisation of their own people via accusations of racism around 1998. Same as the SNP they are a front operation for something else entirely. Four years ago a young man of mixed race was filmed in Cork repeatedly stabbing a badly beaten white teenage boy who was lying on the ground, the one carrying out the stabbing had attacked someone else with a vodka bottle at an earlier date. Sinn Fein released a statement warning people not to share this footage whilst at the same time the one who had carried out the stabbing and bottle attack was boasting on social media that he had been given a better house in a different area as a reward for his actions/to protect him from evil white people.

    Fine Gael and Fianna Fael are also tractorous glblsts. With regard to the stabbings in Dublin last November a few doors down from the school is a trade union office and it has a huge banner hanging on the building, the same block as the school the stabbings occurred outside of, saying to celebrate diversity and fight racism.

    Meanwhile today Edinburgh narrowly avoided its own Grenfell type fire in new flats in Bonington.

    With an apartment fire not being contained the fire it seems spread to other flats and a hundred residents had to be evacuated.

    Moreover, aside of the apparent failure in building standards to contain the fire spreading it seems that fire engines through access design inadequacy could not reach the blocks and firefighters were having to carry ladders.

    Following on from the tragic deaths of two individuals who died in the luxury Cameron House fire a few years ago the contrast of poor Scottish Government building standards fire regulation standards and nonsense like this Hate Monster campaign show exactly what a bust bag of excrement this Scottish Government is.

    I never heard about the incident you refer to – no surprise that I didn’t ; as you’ve mentioned previously , there is a definite policy of either under-reporting or not reporting at all such incidents eg Operation Cerrar , which I’d never heard about either until you wrote about it .

    A horrible assault is no more horrible because it was committed by a foreigner – or less so , but the question is whether the policy of bringing people from – mostly – cultures very different to our own eg perhaps more brutal cultures , ones where women are treated with less respect ,to live in areas which are themselves deprived and subject to all kinds of socio/economic pressures is ever likely to end well .

Meanwhile all the evidence shows the tolerance of low level crimes leads to more serious crimes in later life. How much Police resource will be spent on the latest folly.

Then just write to the department. I did it via email. Got responses within the 20 working day limit. I found out that COPFS made no consideration to the 2031 Census when deciding the no prosecution policy for 2021(2022) Census. Also the NRS blatantly covered up the real reason for the low Census return in 2021(2022). They categorised the non responses without allowing a response of Women that rebelled against the dimumition of women rights via GRRB. A 37% non category!. Such like the suffragettes in 1911.

    On a linguistics level, it’s quite fascinating that this (s)advert is rendered in poorly-rendered colloquial, working class Scots. The only time the middle class in this country use Scots is the very odd word or two, to show ‘down with the lower classes’ they are. God, what utter cunts. Normally we have the new half-American-sounding Received Pronunciation from our ‘Highers And Betters’ as they condescend from Holyrood.

    The Scottish middle class condescension and hatred of the working class is very, very clear here. Because clearly the working classes are the only people in this country or island who hate. Except the middle classes who hate the working class, and the upper classes who hate everybody except themselves. Go fuck yourselves, Holyrood, each and every single one of you.

    Serious question; will those unfortunate people in our society afflicted with self loathing and low self esteem face appropriate punishment for crimes against their own humanity?

    I mean it’s brilliant. Not only can we round up Goths for hating themselves, we can round up all those who hated Goths so much they rounded them up. A double whammy!

    Not being allowed to hate anybody, even yourself, seems such a great idea. We should criminalise all kinds of bad things; like illness, sadness, social deviancy, poverty, swearing, and getting angry.

    All those people hating XL American Bulldogs must be shitting themselves waiting for the Rozzers to catch up with them and send them for correction for hating cuddly devil dogs.

    Let’s ban fear too. That will be brilliant. Just imagine all those people made miserable by fear of spiders, darkness and tight spaces who won’t have to suffer anymore once fear is made illegal. Sorted!

    If it’s against the law to get ill, we can save a fortune on the NHS. Genius! You’ll have to keep your terminal illness a secret or face arrest for being poorly. Who needs vaccinations when we can just jail everybody! No more lockdowns, lock em up instead!

    Ban depression next. Jesus, this criminalisation malarkey should fix everything that’s a bit negative in our society. Just ban it all. Any c*%#t not smiling will be carted off to the correction cubes or that off-world prison on the moon. Fkg smile! Or else.

    All those kids who won’t eat their greens? Just perform a citizens arrest and restrain them until Judge Dredd arrives to justice them.

    We could even criminalise crime and make it illegal to break the law! Just imagine that! No more prisons! And we can use those prison facilities to detain the criminalised ill people, and free up so many beds in the NHS!

    What’s the actual price tag on a “hate” anyway? Is it a £50 fine with points on your licence or will a prison sentence be mandatory?… Prison that is, in a world without prisons… err.. does that mean they’re gonna target my goods, wealth and possessions?
