There is only one thing worse than the militant activists as they seek to force their agendas on the rest of society, and that is spineless leaders who allow themselves to be intimidated and terrorised by these social engineers. If our leaders took a strong stance instead of caving in every time the militants say ‘boo,’ we would not be having so much PC madness being inflicted upon us.
I have known personally of those who have been so intimidated and frightened by the militants that they have dropped out altogether from standing strong for faith and family. The PC thugs simply seek to terrorise anyone who dares to get in their way, and unfortunately far too many folks simply cave in to all this pressure and abuse.
Of course it is not pleasant; I can understand why so many just give up – or never get involved in the first place. All the hate mail and constant intimidation and horrid abuse and vile attacks can certainly take their toll – let alone the death threats. No wonder so many are not standing up at this important time.
Let me give a crystal clear example of militant thuggery and weak, appeasing leadership. Last month I wrote about a new study which states old truths: children do best when raised by their own biological mum and dad. Former Victorian Premier Jeff Kennett even penned an opinion piece affirming the same. I covered that story here: billmuehlenberg.com/2011/09/09/in-praise-of-heterosexual-marriage-and-parenting/
But there have been two more developments to this story. Just days ago a news item appeared saying the homosexual militants were targeting Kennett and his charity work. The story began this way: “Beyondblue faces a growing crisis, with its major sponsor under pressure to dump the mental health organisation over the gay parenting controversy engulfing its chairman, Jeff Kennett, and a former employee alleging poor morale and poor financial management.
“Homosexual rights activists are urging a boycott of beyondblue’s key sponsor, Movember, with gay and lesbian radio station Joy FM launching a rival ‘Homovember’ fund-raising campaign. Movember last year contributed $10 million to beyondblue – a third of the national mental health organisation’s budget.
“Amid growing concerns among medical professionals and sponsors over Mr Kennett’s comments on a range of issues – including that children have better mental health if raised in heterosexual marriages – the men’s health charity told The Sunday Age it was taking the gay community’s concerns seriously and was unwilling to commit to indefinite financial support of beyondblue.”
There you go: a charity group dedicated to helping those with depression are being targeted by these brownshirts simply because Kennett said the truth – that children do need a mother and a father to thrive and properly develop. This is the most commonsense and empirically verified truth going, yet the militant just don’t like it. So they have declared war against truth and reality.
What next? Will the militants start targeting anyone who defends other basic realities, such as eating or breathing? That is how totally bizarre all this is. Imagine that: targeted for simply stating the obvious. How utterly bizarre have we become as a society when stating the truth about reality will turn you into a victim of activist terrorism?
But unfortunately such ugly intimidation and strongarm tactics so often pay off – they certainly did in this case. Now the press is telling us that Kennett has backed down big time. All the abuse and mafia-like bullying has got results. Here is how today’s press covers this turnaround:
“Jeff Kennett has shifted his stance on gay parenting in an apparent bid to mollify the gay and lesbian community. In a pre-recorded interview to be played on gay and lesbian radio station Joy FM today, the former premier reverses his stance articulated in a Herald Sun column last month, which said: ‘Clearly the best environment in which to bring a child into the world is a stable, loving environment in which a male and female are married to each other.’
“In a change of heart, Mr Kennett, the chairman of the national depression initiative beyondblue, tells Joy FM president David McCarthy: ‘The most important thing is a loving relationship and I don’t care what that loving relationship is, right? I really don’t care whether it is a loving relationship between a male and female, be it between two men, two women, be it a single parent, right? A loving relationship is by far the best.’
“Mr McCarthy told The Age Mr Kennett’s views had been misinterpreted. ‘I believe what he said today face-to-face was sincere and I accept that.’ But many in the gay and lesbian community are not satisfied with Mr Kennett’s about-face. Support is growing for a petition launched by Triple J radio presenter Tom Ballard and social change group Change.org, with more than 5000 people calling on Mr Kennett to stop fostering a culture of discrimination against young gay people.”
“Fostering a culture of discrimination against young gay people”? How absolutely idiotic is that. To simply affirm what we know from both common sense and thousands of studies now makes one guilty of “discrimination”. I for one am absolutely fed up with such Stalinist crap.
The complete brain-dead stupidity of all this is just so incredible. Why do the media even give these guys any attention at all? One might as well argue that to be pro-breathing makes one guilty of discrimination against non-oxygen. Or to be pro-food makes one guilty of discrimination against non-eating. It is utter foolishness.
When a society allows this combination of sheer idiocy, militant activism, and spineless leadership, then we are headed on the road to perdition. Thus it becomes a question of not if, but when, we finally cease to exist as a society. No society can last for long when moral anarchy and intellectual suicide become the norm.
But just in case all this tyrannical social engineering does not seem like the end of civilisation as we know it, get a load of this headline, also from today’s press: “Gay passport option ‘parent 1’ and ‘parent 2’ sparks anger”. It sure should spark anger.
What lunatics do we have running the asylum at the moment? Is this Labor government comprised of complete and utter madmen? Here is how the article begins: “Gay parents could win the right to not be referred to as a mum or dad, but instead ‘parent 1’ or ‘parent 2’ in passport applications.
“They would have the option of choosing ‘parent 1’ and ‘parent 2’, instead of mother and father, under a proposal being considered by the Government for its new electronic passport application system. Gay rights groups applauded the potential for gender-neutral forms in Australia, but family groups expressed concern.”
Not just family groups, but anyone left with a brain should be appalled at this moonbattery. Indeed, why be so discriminatory? Why even refer to ‘parent’? Why not just refer to ‘Object x’ or ‘thing z’? In fact, why even have passports at all?
Are they not terribly discriminatory? How unjust and lacking in tolerance can you be? Someone with an Australian passport is obviously discriminating against people from every single other nation. If our loony Labor leaders are so worried about discrimination and a lack of inclusion, why not abolish all passports?
After all, we want to be loving, accepting and treat everyone equally don’t we? So come on Labor, stop being so half-hearted in your attempts at social engineering; just go the whole way. While you are at it, why not abolish all government as well? Not only would that be a tremendous improvement, but it would end all this unjust discrimination against non-government peons like me.
