British mother probed by police for Facebook post that said she hoped Muslims were among the hundreds who drowned in Italy boat disaster

A mother-of-two was today being investigated by police after saying she hoped some of the hundreds of people who drowned off the coast of Italy were Muslims.

Housewife Nicky Hutt was branded a racist after posting the slur on Facebook following the tragedy last Thursday, which saw 232 African immigrants die in a desperate bid to reach Lampedusa, Sicily.

The 35-year-old from Poole, Dorset, said: ‘News night tonight... Top headline. 200 Africans drown in boat disaster. What a shame, hopefully a few of them were Muslims.’

Mrs Hutt - who has two children aged two and seven - said she had been drinking when she posted the comment, and had just watched a documentary on last month’s mall massacre in Nairobi, Kenya.

Her Facebook post sparked outrage among the Muslim community, with leaders branding Mrs Hutt's comments ‘disgusting’ and ‘upsetting’.

What a silly thing to say, and online too. But the hypocrisy of the UK muslims is par for the course. Listen in to what they say in their barracks, I beg your pardon, mosques. Also, islam is a political religious cult, not a race.

I don't see what the problem is; she could just have easily said that she hoped some of the victims were Jews,Hindus,Buddhists,Sikhs or Accrington Stanley supporters. By the police investigating her they are implying that whatever she would have written it would have been deemed to be racist and illegal.

In order for an action to be illegal there must be an option that isn't illegal...therefore we need a list of nationalities, ethnicities, creeds or philosophies from which she could choose a term that isn't deemed illegal.

So let's get thinking.

Stefan, actually, Islam (is not) a religion, but a cult. No known religion (requires) it's followers to kill (all) non-believers. That is a cult.

As for Britain, what we're seeing is further proof that it has become nothing more than another outpost for radical Muslims, radicals who were welcomed into Britain, and where their Sharia Law has been (officially) recognized by both the govt. and the church of England. That, combined with the UK's (obsession) with political correctness, is a clear indication of Britain's demise.

How many muslims are investigated by the police for hate speech every time they cheer an act of jihad? NOT ONE!!

Stupid, hateful, ignorant, upsetting, etc - yep, she is probably guilty of all of them.
But should it be illegal to say stuff that is stupid, hateful, ignorant, upsetting - that's an entirely different matter.
Criminalising stupid opinions is a recipe for disaster.

The unfettered freedom to say or write any damn thing you want is a cornerstone of Democracy. Take away that, and you chip at the very foundations of the monolith. Opinion, especially political or religious, must be most protected when it is most abhorrent. In England's attempt to be "civilized" they are becoming the very fascists they believe they oppose.

Anon 12:00 am.........actually, there are some disturbing reports just lately about how researchers are working on how to read thoughts, and implant them. Consider Chapter 13 of The Revelation of Jesus Christ, particularly the bit where the image of the beast can tell whether or not somebody is worshiping it, this in connection with the mark of the beast. We already see interactive RFID tattoos courtesy of a company called Somark, and we out here in mushroomville won't be in the know about just what is cutting edge and what is planned, but we have a window into what actually happens. If you have a hearing ear, that is....
