Sorry UK. It’s all over. Either emigrate out of there or be assimilated into the stale horrific world of rampant political correctness.
This is amazing. And by amazing I mean sad yet completely predictable. A pub singer named Simon Ledger in the UK was arrested on charges of racism for singing the classic “Kung Fu Fighting” which happened to be heard by a Chinese person passing the pub who phoned the police.
The Daily Mail reports:
‘We were performing Kung Fu Fighting, as we do during all our sets,’ he said.
‘People of all races were loving it. Chinese people have never been offended by it before.
‘But this lad walking past with his mum started swearing at us and making obscene hand gestures before taking a picture on his mobile phone.
‘We hadn’t even seen them when we started the song. He must have phoned the police.’
Officers later called Mr Ledger while he was eating in a Chinese restaurant to arrange a meeting. The singer assumed it was a prank – but he was later arrested and is still under investigation.
‘They seemed pretty amazed but said the law is the law and it was their duty,’ he is reported to have said. ‘It’s political correctness gone potty. There are plenty of Welsh people at our shows – does it mean I can’t play any Tom Jones?’I love the fact that he was at a Chinese restaurant when he was called by police about being arrested for racism against Chinese people.
When did freedom become the right not to be offended?
I’ve got to admit that this story makes me proud to be an American who can still highlight on my blog videos like…THIS!
The makers of Kung Fu Panda might be in trouble.
