TYRANNY Continues: British Citizens Now Face Jail If They Post ‘Offensive’ Content Online Reader 05/12/2018 (Sat) 15:18:00 Id: 762de5 [Preview] No. 8354
British citizens can now face up to six months in jail if they post ‘offensive’ content on social media, under Orwellian new rules proposed by the government.

Despite the fact that violent crime rates have skyrocketed 44% in the last year, the government want police to focus their resources on punishing ‘online trolls’:

Social media users who share or comment on racist or anti-gay postings will face jail under rules proposed yesterday.

Advice for judges and magistrates recommends harsh punishments for those found guilty of stirring up hatred against racial, religious or sexual minority groups.

Among those jailed should be people who post comments or share online hate speech because they have been reckless as to whether they stir up hatred, say the proposals from the Sentencing Council.

Those found guilty of hate trolling by commenting or sharing social media should typically receive a sentence of six months in jail.

“Hate trolling” means sharing politically incorrect facts. The lunatic leftists controlling Britain want to throw right-wingers in prison for 6 months not just for posting such “hate,” but for merely commenting on it or sharing it.Anyone who is convicted of orginating hate speech that threatens anyone’s life or which is widely distributed should expect three years.

Even someone whose words or material were judged as hateful, but were not considered to have threatened life or reached a big audience, is likely to be punished with a year in jail.

[…]The council’s proposals say the most serious hate offences include speeches given by public figures with the aim of stirring up hatred, online content inciting violence towards racial or religious groups, and websites that publish abusive and insulting material to a worldwide audience over a long period.

Aggravating factors include activity ‘in a particularly sensitive social climate’ or delivered to an impressionable audience.

Using multiple social media platforms also makes an offence more grave.

Tor, private VPNs and other anonymization services will soon become required in the Western World for free speech. You should already be using these though because all our communications are already tapped.

So true. If you give the government enough of a reason they will pull enough of their resources and funding together to hunt you down. IP obfuscation is merely one obstacle that can be thrown their way though. There are tools out there that are available to block third party scripts, erase browser cookies/cache and even obfuscate browser metadata which are obstacles that can be thrown their way. If you utilize something like the Tails OS you can spoof the MAC address before connecting to Tor and that can help as another form of obfuscation.

Governments rather not spend tons of $$$ just to track down unknown dissidents with anonymous obfuscation techniques. As Edward Snowden once said the easiest route to personal privacy is still "forward secrecy" - in other words if you don't want the world to know something about yourself just don't voluntarily disclose it. Keep your "online fingerprints" (such as social media) very limited or preferably null. This way you'll make it much more difficult for anyone (including the government) to find out what you are up to regularly. A simple lack of info can revoke the exposure of dirty details you might not want disclosed to the world.
