There’s a time to be silent and tactful, and there’s a time to express what we think and what we believe. Without the latter we are robots, slaves and wimps, betraying our convictions, our humanity and our God-given ability and right to think for ourselves and to stand up for what we’re convinced of; we’re denying our right to shape and to improve our own world, and instead we’re lackeys to the ones who are prepared and positioned to push their views onto the rest of us…
I’ve always believed in politeness and in avoiding sarcasm and aggression: a good attitude towards others is the glue that holds a society together in mutual self-respect. I’m also happy to let others have different views to mine, so long as we allow each other the dignity of airing our views and perhaps even engaging in some robust debate. But I’ve never believed in keeping silent about what I feel strongly about, in order to avoid “offending’ someone. And in this age where political correctness seeks to silence all but the views of those with the most control and who say exactly what they think, the next step is for them to charge the rest of us with thought-crime, via “hate-speech” and other Orwell-esque constructs.
For years I heard about the necessity of freedom of the press. But in the West the press is free-free to push its anti-Christian, anti-West, immoral, revisionist, pro-Marxist worldview onto the rest of us, and to fool us into thinking that its own philosophy is the norm and the only healthy way to think. In some cases tax-payers’ money is being used to pay news media to indoctrinate us (see my post, “Nefarious Public Radio”). Tax payers’ money is used, not just to ruin (I’m sorry, I mean “run”) the economy or to pay for our protection (or lack of it) but to change the fabric of our society. Big government and the “let’s-make-the-laws-not-just-correct-the-breaking-of-them” judicial system, with the help of the big-bully mainstream media, is ramming its own interpretations of history, morality and religion down our throats. I don’t want to squeal “conspiracy”, but hey, I think there’s a conspiracy.
The only “religion” castigated these days, the only faith attacked in colleges and universities, in text books, in the media and in the courts, is Christianity. Is this, by any chance, a central goal of those who are the social engineers of our society?
By being afraid to be called “intolerant” “bigoted” “ignorant” and a host of other names designed to silence all opposition, we peons at the bottom of the pole in the West are surrendering our freedom of speech to the ruling elite so that their philosophies and agendas, which are in some cases directly opposed to the majority of the people they claim to represent, can take over. No, I’m not just talking about “rich Republicans” here: haven’t you noticed it’s the Democrats who’ve been in charge for seven years now? Don’t you know that many of those politicians who you think care so much about the poor are millionaires, funded by billionaires and big business? How would they raise tens of millions from the poor for an election campaign? If they’re so interested in financial equality, how come they want to share my money around but not theirs?
Why are we surrendering our freedom of speech to political correctness? We’re surrendering because we believe that our masters’ destruction of traditional morality is going to give us freedom and make us happy, and because we’ve bought the lie propagated in our own media and higher education institutions that everything our civilization is built on is evil. Well if it’s so evil and nasty why does the rest of the world want to move here, and why aren’t the “offended” ones moving out? Why, if we treat people of other faiths, of the female gender, and with different amounts of melanin in their skin so badly, do they move here by the million?
The most pernicious aspect of political correctness is that it invites the enemies of freedom to destroy the very freedom and tolerance it claims to promote. If we’re not free to examine or to criticize-for example-the nature of radical Islam, we’ve already succumbed to its objectives on a foundational level. What do I mean? I mean that since the word “Islam” means “submission”, by refusing to question its philosophy we’ve already submitted to an extent which makes us much more vulnerable. Neighbors of those who carried out the recent terror attack (gasp…yes I did say that “t” word) in San Bernardino had failed to report suspicious activities for fear of being labeled as “racist bigots”. As a result fourteen people lost their lives and dozens more lost their loved ones.
Recent terror attacks have been carried out in gun-free zones, yet those in the highest authority are wishing to capitalize on the operation and blame gun possession for the violence. Guns don’t shoot people-evil ideologies and evil people do it. Paris was a gun-free zone-but guns were used in the terror attack, where there was no one to shoot back in defense of the innocent.
By taking away guns from the public at this late stage, we would be exposing ourselves to more attacks-not less-from the cowards who will not stop hating the West no matter how much we kowtow to them, who don’t want anyone shooting back, and who aren’t interested in obeying gun laws. Can we really believe idle promises from government to protect us from such attacks? Short of security forces being omnipresent, and assuming that the administration would actually have the will to identify, disagree with and resist the enemy, all they can really do is come to clean up the mess when it’s happened, and then take you to court (if you’re still alive) for trying to defend yourself.

Well, in terms of money, here it’s rather strange that suddenly billions are available to wage what many see as a completely pointless war, but no money can be found to care for our elderly. That’s obscene. Don’t believe the hype mate, there’s plenty of money to fund the wishes of the ruling classes, and then some.
I’m sorry I mistook your strength of opinion as anger, it does feel like that, and you know I get angry too.
The Muslims I know would probably feel pretty uncomfortable engaging in a discussion about their faith, mostly because the media paints them all extremist, just like the neighbours of the 2 mad persons in your article, they feel tarred with the same brush as the terrorists, which is very sad. Do think I should unfriend these people because of their faith?
I’m sorry but we’ll have to agree to disagree about Trump, I think he’s a dangerous socio-path but there you go. I guess when Hitler came to power, most people in Germany were refreshed by his radical and alternative politics, perhaps similar will occur in the US, and I guess we’ll be looking at nuclear rather conventional war with Donald…….
There’s many different ways to deal with extremists, but the first thing the UK could do is to stop selling arms to Saudi Arabia ( and other inhumane regimes ), who have been shown to have funded and armed ISIS, but then that would really put a dent in the arms industry’s Christmas bonus……
Just like Reagan started a nuclear war, right?
A very interesting piece mate. By God, you’re angry, and I totally understand why, although I’m not sure any amount of “venting” will change the attitude of the ruling classes. For the most part, I think the capitalist/materialist society has to run it’s course: the obscenely rich powers that be are completely out of control, the new Babylon if you like ( as foretold by Marcus Garvey ) which must eventually fall and burn out.
I’m not sure if what you say completely describes the thoughts of people here in England, and perhaps that wasn’t your intention. Yes, definitely most people see the ruling classes as corrupt, self serving and out of control. And I think British politics has had it’s day: it’s outmoded, outdated and for the most part completely disregards the will of the people. There is a change coming: that’s why the ruling classes are so afraid, they know everyone can see their lies and inhumanity. Our parents must be rolling in their graves to know Camoron would rather line the pockets of his weapon manufacturer buddies than bolster our collapsing NHS or schools, or social services, particularly for the elderly and terminally ill, the very people our parents taught us to care for and respect first.
The mood in the media here is anti all Muslims, yet I think most of the common folk around this part of Essex know Muslims via the food they eat, and the places they shop in, and find them mostly agreeable, certainly not radical or aggressive in any way. I’m not ashamed to say I have several Muslim friends, to a man they’ve all expressed great horror at recent world events, and have certainly never expressed the desire to amputate my bonce!
I sincerely hope that common America thinks Mr Trump is a silly old fart with a bad syrup, because here he’s single handedly responsible for making the US a laughing stock. Were he in power before the 2nd World War, not doubt many more would have perished as a result of his ignorance, mine and your relatives included. And as far as the English go, no, we don’t want to come to America, we’re too afraid of getting shot!
And you’re wrong: guns do kill people, I’m not going to bother quoting the stats, but far more Americans ( I think the figure is 42 ) were killed by their dogs simply sitting on their owner’s guns than by terrorists, but for God’s sake, don’t tell Donald that! And that’s not to mention the thousands of hand gun “accidents” that killed people in the US this year……
There’s another thing I think both you and I need to make clear: people who murder are insane, it doesn’t matter what faith they have, they’re nuts, plain and simple, no sane person can take the life of another, it really is that simple.
We both thank God for all his blessings and mercies. I know you think because I don’t totally believe all of the Bible I am destined to internal damnation, and that may well be the case: but whilst I understand your anger and agree with it for the most part, I think of Jesus and the Gospels, and one word stands out amongst the many: forgiveness
Thanks matey. I might have to reply in one or two parts as this box isn’t easy to use for a longish comment.
First, this was not written in anger. It’s a shame that strength of opinion is seen as anger in our age. The problem of poor social welfare is because someone has to pay for it. If the middle-classes are wiped out, and the upper classes are the ones with all the power, where does that money come from? And with more and more people relying on that welfare instead of being able to find a decent job, the burden gets bigger for those who work.
Yes most Muslims just want to live and let live. But the minority will not let them, or us. Those who take their prophet seriously have to wage jihad-one way or another.
Trump is misrepresented in the media. If nobody is allowed to give a dissenting voice, then as I said, we have already submitted and the radicals are NOT going to stop. If I could vote I would vote for him.
Yes we need to forgive, but we can’t stand still and wait for someone to cut our head off. The insanity is in sticking our heads in the sand and denying what’s happening, and then vilifying anyone who wants to deal with the problem. Before WWII Obama would have been the Chamberlain, and we need somebody to be a Churchill, before it’s too late for all of us.
Only God can forgive our sin, and he’s under no obligation to do it.
