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.
