This is the only time in recorded history that a “braver man” can actually be a “woman.”

On Tuesday, the United Kingdom‘s Home Secretary Suella Braverman slammed the Leicestershire police force after it sent out a tweet encouraging residents to report the egregious hate crime of being “deadnamed.” Deadnaming occurs when someone uses the former name of an individual who has changed his or her name after deciding to identify as a different gender.

“This week I have seen confusion amongst police forces about what constitutes a ‘hate crime.’ The police need to enforce actual laws & fight actual crimes,” Braverman tweeted in response to a now-deleted tweet from Leicestershire police. “Freedom of speech must be protected and a proportionate approach must be taken.”

The original tweet stated, “You can report #HateCrime via Stamp It Out,” and featured the following graphic made from a stock photo:

Of course, many were wondering why the police would be involved in something like that all.

In her official capacity, Braverman oversees policing in the U.K. and is decidedly putting an end this nonsense. She also promised to get to the bottom of the tweet, as well as any other police resources being used in this regard.

“The public need to have confidence in their police forces,” she added. “This sort of thing undermines it. Senior police officers who allow this to happen can expect to have to explain to me why they’re spending vital resources on politically correct campaigns.”

For its part, Leicestershire Police apologized for using a stock photo.

“To clarify in relation to the posts, the images used were stock images obtained by the team,” Temporary Chief Constable Rob Nixon said in a press release. “The source of those images had been considered to be reliable and the words on the posts were provided by an experienced police staff member who has significant knowledge of the different types of hate crime people can be and have been subjected to.”

However, Nixon asked that “people please remember the importance of the message which the posts related to – that hate crime is impactive and an offence and together we should be working to ‘Stamp it Out.’”

This is not the first time that Braverman has taken on the woke mob.

In September, shortly after being appointed Home Secretary, Braverman sent a letter to police chiefs in England and Wales, stating, “Culture and standards in the police have to change, particularly in London.”

She added that police officers “have had to spend too much time on symbolic gestures, rather than actually fighting crime.”

Other measures, such as diversity and inclusion efforts, “should not take precedence over common-sense policing” she said.

Hats off to Braverman. Congrats on fighting back against wokeism.
