Yep, it’s been at least a week, so we have plenty more cases of the tolerance brigade doing their thing. The militants will not rest until the entire world bows in subservience to their twisted agenda. And they are more than happy to use the heavy hand of the law and other means to ensure that their agenda is fully implemented and adhered to.
So here I offer three more recent examples of the social engineers crushing democracy and freedom of speech as they force-feed their radicalism upon an unwilling populace. And the first example is quite an eye-opener: it in fact involves the homosexual activists turning on one of their own.
It seems one brave homosexual was willing to say what we all know – but for doing so he has been crucified by his militant buddies. English actor and open homosexual Rupert Everett is now receiving death threats from the tolerance brigade. Why? Because he said homosexual parenting was not exactly great for children.
As one report states, “The openly homosexual star came under fire from campaign groups after he stated that children ‘need a father and a mother’, adding, ‘[I] can’t think of anything worse than being brought up by two gay dads.’ He subsequently clarified his remarks, insisting he is not ‘against’ same-sex couples having kids, but he has now revealed that he has since received a number of nasty messages. Everett tells British newspaper the Daily Telegraph, ‘I’ve now had all this hate mail and there have been death threats, too… All the queens out there now have it in for me. I’m loathed by them. I’m having to take evasive action’.”
Yes they are such a tolerant and accepting bunch – you know, so very much into diversity and love and all those sorts of things. It does not get much better in the US. In the American state of Maryland a diversity officer no less has been given the flick for daring to sign a pro-marriage petition. Consider this incredible story:
“Conservatives and even some liberals across the nation are outraged after Gallaudet University suspended the school’s chief diversity officer after she signed a petition in her church to put a gay marriage referendum on the ballot in Maryland.
“Angela McCaskill, a 23-year veteran of the university, was placed on paid leave as the university investigates her support for traditional marriage. ‘It recently came to my attention that Dr. McCaskill has participated in a legislative initiative that some feel is inappropriate for an individual serving as Chief Diversity Officer; however, other individuals feel differently,’ wrote Gallaudet president T. Alan Hurwitz in an email sent to the campus community.
“McCaskill’s attorney said they will hold a press conference on Tuesday — stressing that his client is not ‘anti-gay.’ McCaskill was one of 200,000 residents who signed a petition to put ‘Maryland’s Question 6’ on the ballot. The measure is a referendum on same-sex ‘marriage.’
“The Washington Blade published the names and addresses of every person who signed the petition. An anonymous faculty member spotted McCaskill’s name in the newspaper and immediately notified authorities. Hurwitz said McCaskill, who earned the school’s first Ph.D as a deaf African-American woman, was immediately placed on leave. Her job remains in jeopardy.”
Yep – so much for freedom of speech and diversity of opinion at our universities. But hey, why wait till university to get into the heavy-handed persecution? Why not start in high school? Well, that is exactly what some schools in Australia are doing.
It seems the thought police are alive and well there, and they will crack down on anyone who dares suggest that heterosexuality is somehow normal. As one news item reports: “NSW Education Minister Adrian Piccoli says the government is committed to stamping out homophobic bullying in schools, but his department won’t approve teaching material aimed at stamping out ‘heterosexism’.
“It comes after it was revealed that students at 12 NSW high schools are being taught it is wrong and ‘heterosexist’ to regard heterosexuality as the norm for relationships. The ‘Proud Schools’ pilot program, implemented in 12 government schools in Sydney and the Hunter, is designed to stamp out ‘homophobia, transphobia (fear of transsexuals) and heterosexism’.
“Teachers are given professional development to learn to identify and stamp out any instances of ‘heterosexist’ language in the playground, such as ‘that’s so gay’. But at least 10 Liberal MPs are ‘extremely concerned’ about the program, and will complain to Education Minister Adrian Piccoli this week.”
Only ten? Every single one of them should be making a stink. And this foolishness should never have come about in the first place under a Liberal state government. Columnist Miranda Devine comments: “So now it’s a thought crime to regard heterosexuality as the norm in human relationships. This is called ‘heterosexism’, joining racism and sexism as the new no-go zone, and the Proud Schools pilot program rolled out to 12 Sydney and Hunter high schools over the past two terms is aimed at stamping it out.
“The program defines ‘heterosexism’ as the practice of ‘positioning heterosexuality as the norm for human relationship’, according to the Proud Schools Consultation Report. ‘It involves ignoring, making invisible or discriminating against non-heterosexual people, their relationships and their interests. Heterosexism feeds homophobia.’ So there it is. If you think the vast majority of people are attracted to the opposite sex and that heterosexual human relationships are the norm, you are feeding homophobia.”
Her conclusion is spot on: “It’s not up to academics to dictate attitudes to society via indoctrination of captive children in classrooms, and it’s irresponsible of politicians to allow them to do so. Parents expect their children to go to school to learn basic skills, and become socialised. They expect a safe environment in which everyone is treated with respect and without bullying.
“But they also don’t expect that their values should be subverted by homosexual or any other propaganda. And they don’t expect that widespread acceptance of heterosexuality as the most common human experience would be demonised.”
Exactly right. Yet the militants not only want to stamp out all opinions differing from their own, but they want to turn day into night, and black into white. Thus the big crime today is to even believe heterosexuality is normal, while the thought police will enforce the belief that homosexuality somehow is. Go figure. Talk about a brave new world.
