Journalists and theatre directors should also face the courts if their work is deemed to deliberately stoke up prejudice, Humza Yousaf said.

this just the SNP fucking up Scotland right? Maybe indyref2 should happen after all

The Scottish Nationalist Party are in charge there, and are (ironically) staunch globalists that want us returned to the EU and will do anything they can to squash desenting voices or anything unutopian.

Ah that asshole.
Saw Sargon's vid about this, just another idpol race baiter trying to get in the limelight.

Live in country of 96% whites, complain about whites.

I suppose those demagogues that require white guilt are running on fumes.

Next step is to send people in for mandatory brain scans to see if they have been guilty of "thought crimes".
