"China" Cameron

The man is on a roll.

British Prime Minister David Cameron thinks he's found some culprits to blame in the recent riots that have rocked London and other cities -- Facebook and Twitter.
Saying the "free flow of information" can sometimes be a problem, Cameron's government has summoned those two social-networking sites, as well as Research In Motion, makers of the BlackBerry, for a meeting to discuss their roles during the violent outbreaks.
"Everyone watching these horrific actions will be struck by how they were organized via social media," Cameron said Thursday during an address to Parliament. "Free flow of information can be used for good. But it can also be used for ill. And when people are using social media for violence, we need to stop them." 

 Shit, now ours will get the same idea.

The Con response to any [social] problem? Crush it with a jackboot.

So Assad machine gunned 13 today and 35 two days ago. Yet the fascistosphere is outraged about English riots, which have so far had 5 deaths, and lots of property damage. I'm sure if there was lots of vandalism going on in Syria, Assad would be regime changed by now.

Sure sounds like official noises from the Ministry of Truth. Or maybe from V For Vendetta.

Rioters/protesters are evil if they are railing against an ally {e.g., England). These movements are triumphant if they are railing against an enemy (e.g., Libya, Syria).
