” Don’t fund terrorism” sign owner forced to take it down

The British police have successfully bullied a British corner shop owner into removing his ” Don’t Fund Terrorism!” sign by threatening to remove his liquor license. The complaint about the sign came from the Muslim shop owner up the street.

The corner shop owner had put up the sign in response to the arrest and trial of two corner shop owners who laundered more than £41m. He was originally visited four times in one night by police who told him that if he didn’t remove it or change the wording he would be arrested. When those threats failed they threatened to remove his liquor license and he was forced to remove it.

In response to the recent terror attacks that have plagued the UK, and after reading about local corner shops funding terrorism in Afghanistan through money laundering, a Sunderland business owner put a sign up on his corner shop that read, “Don’t Fund Terrorism! Shop at Fletchers”

The sign was fairly innocuous.

Customers took pictures of themselves next to the sign. Images were shared widely across social media.

But the sign provoked outrage with a Muslim shop owner up the street.

Then the police decided to become involved, visiting the store seven times and asking Mr. Fletcher to take down the sign. They threatened to arrest him if he didn’t.

Eventually, the police threatened to take away Mr. Fletcher’s liquor license, which would have sunk his entire business, if the sign was not removed.

In compliance, Mr. Fletcher was forced to take down his sign.

Rebel Media who covered the story are now fundraising in order to get legal representation for the shop owner as they do not believe that the British police should get away with intimidating him for being Patriotic.
