Here we go again…!

So I’m sure you’ve probably already heard about what happened in London last week. But there’s good news, according to Yahoo!

London Police Nab 3 Under Anti-Terror Laws

Which means that now the UK can potentially head down the path the US has already started on 4 years ago. But lest I start to sound paranoid, here’s an emblematic quote from the article:

“I would ask people across London to think very carefully about anyone they know whose behavior has changed suddenly. What has changed could it be significant? What about the people they associate with? Tell us what you see and what you know, and let us decide if the information you have is valuable or not,” said Deputy Assistant Commissioner Peter Clarke, head of the Metropolitan ‘s Anti-Terrorist Branch.

Which sounds an awful lot like “Any commies? Or proles committing thoughtcrime? Is your teenager a TERRORIST?”

Well, maybe Pink Floyd put it better:

So ya thought ya might like to go to the show.
To feel the warm thrill of confusion, that space cadet glow.
I got me some bad news for you, Sunshine.
Pink isn’t well, he stayed back at the hotel,
And he sent us along as a surrugate band.
We’re gonna find out where you fans really stand.
Are there any queers in the theatre tonight?
Get ’em up against the wall.
And that one in the spotlight, he don’t look right to me.
Get him up against the wall.
And that one looks Jewish, and that one’s a coon.
Who let all this riffraff into the room?
There’s one smoking a joint, and another with spots!
If I had my way I’d have all of ya shot.
