The expression line in the sand has this origin:
Biblical link to John 8:6. Some have (perhaps erroneously) interpreted Jesus’ writing in the sand, as drawing a line in the sand in order to address those who are about to stone a woman caught in adultery. However, the literal translation is not that he drew a line in the sand, but that he “wrote” (or “drew lines” in some translations) in the sand, an important distinction.
The exact origin of the phrase is unknown: the Oxford English Dictionary suggests a transitional use from 1950, but a definitely figurative use only as late as 1978.
In Britain, it’s better known as red line or red lines – whatever the usage, it’s a useful expression and a way of bringing this as a mini-series today in which the first post can be linked in the sidebar and keyposts page for later accessibility.
Let’s get started. For those without Twitter, I’ll explain straight after it:
And we wonder why so many of our youngsters have no respect for the police force…

If all you could get was the picture, then the police went down that main street dressed in gay outfits with silly flags and whirling things on their heads. The officer in the footage then approached people sitting at tables having snacks and started drawing things on their arms, spinning round in silly pirouettes, a la The Joker in Batman, before moving onto the next victim.
It was not OK, for many reasons which will pass many people by today, including the Brazilian electrician killer’s police force’s minds.
Even were it for a good cause, which it was not, not in the opinion of most conservatives, if it were a cause such as disabled children or opening a new, apolitical community centre, a serving officer, in uniform, who has the power to arrest you for not enjoying it, would be well out of order.
But compound that with the police forces’ and courts’ highly selective choices on which soft target to do a dawn raid on, with helicopters, mass officer turnout etc., at taxpayer expense, whilst letting actual crims off the hook, then the mood of the people is not going to be pro-Plod in the first place.
There is also the smouldering resentment over this whole gay thing forced down the throats of every adult and child whether they like it or not – in all the media, in entertainment – wherever you turn, you get bludgeoned by the Narrative. and the sickening spectacle of kids turned into drag queens and having ‘discussions’ about sexual orientation at 4 years of age at school, let alone being converted to Islam.
Why are those headteachers not both fired and incarcerated?
And yet these officers act the clown over one side of a highly politicised issue, expecting there’s nothing wrong at all, everyone happy and if any one of those diners had objected, he’d have been taken down to the station for questioning.
Not funny in the least, not fun in any way, shape or form – in fact the whole spectacle was grotesque.
And who was it sent them out to do this ‘community policing’ when they can’t even tackle crime and protect demonstrators and people from the demonstrators – equally, on both sides?
Leaving that aside – why is this whole perverted lbheebeegeebee thing always tricked out in frivolity, as if it’s all fun and games? That is pure satanism – again, cue The Joker in Batman. It’s grotesque … and it’s sick.
