Once again Britain’s descent into moonbattery has pushed self-parody to a new extreme of absurdity:
A pub singer was arrested for alleged “racism” after belting out the chart hit Kung Fu Fighting as two Chinese people walked past.
One of them complained to cops, who later nicked stunned Simon Ledger – in a Chinese restaurant.
Simon, 34, often performs the song in Sandown, Isle of Wight. He said: “I hadn’t even seen these two.”
Simon needs to remember that intention doesn’t matter with crimes of political correctness. Unless you’re white, heterosexual, and non-Muslim, then whoever you claim hurt your feelings is guilty, even if he did it in his sleep.
Simon’s act regularly features the song, which he had already begun before the offended person of Chinese origin (the word “Chinaman” is now forbidden) happened onto the scene. None of that matters either. He was arrested and may end up with a criminal record.
Laws against politically incorrect “harassment” are working well, considering that their only conceivable purpose is to create a climate in which anyone who isn’t a member of a privileged special interest group is terrified to say or do anything.
