UK, YES! One click on "terrorist materials" online punished by 15 years in prison!
One click and you're out: UK makes it an offence to view terrorist propaganda even once
It will be an offence to view terrorist material online just once – and could incur a prison sentence of up to 15 years – under new UK laws.
The Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill was granted Royal Assent yesterday, updating a previous Act and bringing new powers to law enforcement to tackle terrorism.
But a controversial inclusion was to update the offence of obtaining information "likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism" so that it now covers viewing or streaming content online.
Originally, the proposal had been to make it an offence for someone to view material three or more times – but the three strikes idea has been dropped from the final Act.
The law has also increased the maximum penalty for some types of preparatory terrorism offences, including the collection of terrorist information, to 15 years' imprisonment.
But the government argued in the impact assessment for the 2019 Act (PDF) that this "would not capture a situation where a person viewed such material over the internet without obtaining a permanent access to it", such as by streaming or viewing it online.
It said that the existing laws didn't capture the "nuance" in "changing methods" for distribution and consumption of terrorist content – and so added a new clause into the 2019 Act (PDF), making it an offence to "view (or otherwise access) any terrorist material online".
This means that, technically, anyone who clicked on a link to such material could be caught by the law – and rights groups are concerned about the potential for abuse.
How will the merchants controlling the UK define terrorism?
Well it's already "terrorism" in the UK to put up pro-white stickers - just ask the ex National Action members who are currently in jail (one of whom was almost assassinated by ZOG by being stabbed in the neck during his first week in jail).
A cartoon frog is classed as "hate speech".
Waving bacon at a mosque is also "hate speech" (a crime punished by death in jail).
Y'all kids wanna see what a Bolshevik NVKD style government looks like? You're looking at one.
