PC Repression: Hate is Now Love, and Love is Now Hate

Oct 3, 2018

How many years have we been warning about this? How many watchmen predicted that if we do not stop the coercive utopianism of the radical secular left, we will soon all pay a very heavy price? How many tried to sound the alarm and wake up a sleeping culture concerning the radical left’s war on everything? How many sentinels were laughed at and mocked as they sought to alert us to the war we are in?

Well, we are now where so many of us have warned about. We are now in Big Brother’s PC state. We are now in the Brave New World of leftist hegemony. And it is scary as all get out – just as fearful as what George Orwell and Aldous Huxley warned us about in 1949 and 1932.

We are now living through what they foretold would happen. This is no longer the stuff of fiction, or dystopian novels. This is now reality. Warnings going back nearly a century have simply fallen on deaf ears. Repeated trumpet calls to awake from our slumber and stand up for what we deeply value failed to be heeded. Now we are all paying the price for this deadness of hearing.

I and others have documented countless cases of the war on freedom, faith and family, and how the militants promoting homosexuality, transgenderism and Islam – to name but three of the fav leftist causes – have managed to shut down free speech, hound conservatives out of jobs, and even see folks imprisoned for daring to hold dissident views.

Sadly the UK has been leading the way in all this, and my two newest examples of rainbow fascism and creeping sharia are as shocking as they get. Consider the following mind-boggling situation in Scotland. One write-up on this begins as follows:

Cycling home from St Peters I saw a poster that took my breath away. Sometimes you see that something is going to happen and yet it still shocks you when it does. These posters are currently being displayed in towns and cities all over Scotland.

You can see one of these posters just to the right. Others begin with these words: “Dear homophobes” and “Dear transphobes”. He continues:

You will note that these are posters from the Scottish Government and the Scottish Police. At one level they seem fine. Who is going to argue against the idea that we want rid of hatred? That people should not call others names, or be violent, or mock and abuse? But that is not what is happening here. Note the following:

The posters themselves are somewhat ambiguous, unless you speak the code. If you do speak the language of the Scottish Government and Police then what they are saying is that any kind of disagreement with homosexuality, the trans philosophy, or Islam makes you guilty of hate and you have no place in ‘our’ community.

They are selective – It’s only certain groups that are mentioned. Look at what they leave out. What about those of us who are Christians who are regularly mocked and abused in the media, in our schools and on the streets? What about English people in Scotland? What about the disabled? Or many, many other groups? Why do they only pick on these select groups?

They are intimidatory – It is not the job of the police to police our thoughts and hearts. They can have no idea what we do or do not hate or love. Their responsibility is to deal with crimes that are committed. They do not have the time, money or ability to deal with our thoughts. But it seems they are going to try. The new State morality is going to be imposed through education and enforced by the State police – welcome to modern Scotland – the Saudi Arabia of Secularism.

They are self-contradictory – A poster which is designed to combat hate – spreads hate. Imagine a poster which said – “Dear bigots, you can’t spread your homosexual hatred here!” You would be arrested immediately for putting that up. But now the police and the Scottish government are putting up a poster which incites hatred – by implying that it is religion that is to blame. I get enough hatred in schools, Universities, the media and online, without the government and police encouraging it!

The posters say ‘love lives in this country, not hate’ – whilst encouraging people to hate anyone who dares to disagree with their new State morality. They should say ‘insanity lives in this country’. We are moving towards an Orwellian State where in the name of love we are taught to hate all who do not agree with the State’s philosophy.

I simply have no words. This is so shocking and so frightening. People are being told by the authorities that if they dare to think differently on controversial issues of the day, they are NOT welcome. It is now just a matter of time before anyone who does not toe the party line will be deported or incarcerated – all in the name of love, diversity and acceptance.

The West – once known as the place where free speech, freedom of thought, and freedom of belief were held up as cardinal virtues and tremendous social goods – is now undoing all of that. Much of it is now saying we no longer believe in any of this, and we prefer tyranny, enforced conformity, and the monolithic State.

My second example comes from England and involves blatant indoctrination of young school children. The headline reads: “BBC publishes video showing 6-year-olds being made to write gay love letters to promote diversity”. Here is how the report introduces the story:

The BBC’s Radio Manchester shared a video on the organization’s Facebook page in September that’s making the rounds and going viral. What’s the video all about? The video features 6-year-olds writing letters from one male story character to another male story character, imploring him to marry the other. Featuring pupils from Bewsey Lodge Primary School — which is in Warrington, in England’s Cheshire region — the video shows children pen a note from “Prince Henry” to his servant “Thomas.”

The students’ teacher, Sarah Hopson, told the BBC what was happening in the video — which, at the time of this writing, has been viewed more than 180,000 times. “This class of 6-year-olds is learning about gay marriage. In this fairy tale, the prince wants to marry his [male] servant. And the children are writing a love letter,” Hopson said.

She noted that she believes it’s important for children to learn about gay marriage at such a young age because those same children would “go out into that world and find this diversity around them, and they’ll find that out at a young age as well. [T]he more [children] can be accepting at this age, you’re not going to face it further on, because the children will be accepting now and will be accepting this diversity around them,” she added.

Wow, again, I am speechless. The militants are not even trying to hide their overt proselytising and indoctrination anymore. They now proudly endorse it and defend it. ‘We WILL target your children, and we WILL make them see only the rainbow version of events.’

Hmm, no wonder past dictators spoke of the vital importance of getting children at an early age. As Lenin put it, “Give me just one generation of youth, and I’ll transform the whole world.” Or as Hitler famously declared in 1937, “This new Reich will give its youth to no one, but will itself take youth and give to youth its own education and its own upbringing.”

Yep, target them while still young, innocent, and a captive audience in state schools. This should alarm every parent out there. Forget about education and the three Rs, we now have political and ideological indoctrination taking place, and our youngest of kids are in the crosshairs of the activists.

The UK is clearly on its last legs, as is most of the West. It may now be too late for a last-minute fightback. It would have been much easier to resist had earlier warnings been heeded, and previous watchmen on the wall were taken seriously. Now our job is massive – and whether we can turn things around remains to be seen.

Still, I will do what I can. How about you?

  • Bill, you are quite right that this insanity and great sin is beyond our scope of repair. What we have here is a classic example of a forest overridden with undergrowth and is timber dry while the winds are blowing stronger ad stronger. It will only take the slightest spark to set off the all cleansing fires that will rage across all ages and sex.
    THE PLAGUE WILL COME IN THE GUISE OF HIV/AIDS
    I would like to add to your writings by condemnation of those of us who call ourselves Christians and each time a Christian utters the word ex wife or ex husband we mocked God. Each time we referred to divorce we mocked God. Each time we referred to the wife’s or husband’s new wife or husband we mocked God and we abandoned our children to sin.
    The lunatic left has merely stoked the fires that we ourselves have created and now we find ourselves at the Gates of Sodom and Gomorrah where God will want to know if there are ten un-corrupted and the cities worth saving.
    I say that the lunatic left are already damned but we are the ones on test. Those who speak out will be remembered and those who do not will also be remembered.

    I believe God is about to turn his face from us and the fires of plague will rage soon enough with devastating consequences. No doubt the churches will fill with the cries of ‘save us’ but God made it clear that if we do not carry out his edicts he will turn his face from us. We have mocked God as did Pharaoh and he paid the price and so too Egypt. We fare no better.
    John Abbott

  • Speechless! It feels as though the rug, a MASSIVE rug is being pulled out from underneath. The level of belligerence toward anyone who does not conform to this ideology is terrifying. What is worse, is the fact that ’Christians’ are swallowing this lunacy. To love someone is to help them overcome/identify a sin in one’s life that will ultimately destroy them, is it not? To not love someone is to appease a sin and avoid any offense. Bill, I am getting more and more concerned. I gently bring up these topics with Christian friends for discussion, only to discover, sadly, that many are not interested, and that we should just love them this way i.e. the way they are and continue to be. I want to love more than that, and not appease the sin, and in my life also. David said this aptly about sin in Psalm 57.7, ‘Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow’. I want to love enough that I will cause offence in the hope they repent before God and be saved. God help us and our children.

  • The absolute insanity of this is they are inciting the very thing they claim to be against. All it will do is build resentment, which of course will boil over in the future. And with the inevitable response, the spiral into a police state where thoughts are crimes will continue. It’s utterly mental.

    The US Founding Fathers have been vindicated over and over and over again with the defining of free speech as a bedrock to a civil society that values individual freedoms. The alternative is to shut people’s mouth’s by force. Why don’t people understand the huge danger of this?

    Never grant to government powers that you would not grant to your worst enemy. Because what would happen if your worst enemy came into power?

  • This is all horrific, and of course what seems to be rather ironic is that the sign itself is ‘bigoted’. Add all of this to the new Chinese facial recognition and ‘points for good behaviour’ regime and we are all in deep, deep trouble! 🙁

  • You will notice too that what the 6-year-olds are being taught, by this overwhelmingly evil woman, is about a homosexual prince who wants to marry his servant just like emperor Nero who wanted to do the same so he had his slave castrated. This is absolute and complete evil disguised as a fairytale!

    It’s not just in the UK. In Oz you can get a degree in just about any nutty thing you can think of but whatever you do you are not allowed to get a degree in Western Civilization.

    Just goes to show how big the huge fear of truth that prevails these days is. Makes you wonder exactly what is wrong with these people that they cannot see the obvious when the wickedness is so plain to see. “Let’s groom children for perverted sex but whatever you do don’t teach anyone how Western society once got to be preeminent.” The zeitgeist just oozes evil doesn’t it?

    I remember the days when societies that promoted genital mutilation were rightfully looked down on – now we have become one. Death, disfigurement, lies, perversion, you mention the evil and it’s being promoted these days but whatever you do don’t let people find out about what works and is good for people and why sin is sin.

  • “Woe unto them who call good, evil and evil, good. “
    -Isaiah 5:20

  • The only thing that can change moral atmosphere is God through the work of the Holy Spirit.

    Jesus Christ is the light of the world. We are the members of that body of light.

    The responsibility therefore rests upon our spiritual state, no sound logic, argument, or mere oratory will suffice.

    Only God can help us and He can, godliness has not lost its power. We war not against flesh and blood, the members of the left are not our enemies they are lost and damned because we are pathetic followers of Christ.

    Because the vast majority of us are lost in self/sin just like the left wing brigade are.

  • According to Otto Inglis, the poster in the photograph targets Protestant/Catholic sectarianism. See:

    https://www.conservativewoman.co.uk/dear-police-chiefs-stop-this-marxist-nonsense-now/

  • Thanks Alex. While in my article it is mentioned that there is some ambiguity to the posters, the longer version of the “Dear bigots” poster is pretty clear: it speaks about “making people’s lives a misery because of their religious dress”. As far as I know, Protestants and Catholics do NOT dress differently. However, Muslims certainly do, compared to your normal home-grown Scotsman.

  • Bill, I have been told, by numerous pastors that we know how the story ends, so why fight it. It is God’s will!
    I say BS! God never intended for us to accept and live with evil. I believe are churches have become so involved with a sinful culture there is no escape. Pastors are afraid to speak the truth of God’s word anymore. They worry they may offend the secular in attendance at their church forgetting about the Christians in the pews, a mission to save the sinner while ignoring the saved.

  • Thanks Charles. Yes quite right. That is a ridiculous and unbiblical copout. If my wife is being raped, I will NOT sit back and say ‘we know how the story ends, so why fight it. It is God’s will!’ If my child is choking on food stuck in her throat, I will NOT sit back and say ‘we know how the story ends, so why fight it. It is God’s will!’ If the num num pastors who told you this found their churches on fire, they would NOT sit back and say ‘we know how the story ends, so why fight it. It is God’s will!’

  • Thanks for continuing to alert people to what’s going on concerning the demise of the West Bill.
    Hang in there; it does become depressing at times, but you are doing what your conscience says is right – and what IS right.
    I too have been extremely frustrated at times just over the past few years trying to warn friends and the media of what is happening to our culture. My daughter once said to me “Dad, you wouldn’t waste your time trying to teach our dog algebra, so stop frustrating yourself by trying to explain things to people who are incapable of understanding them, or simply just don’t want to know!”. Sadly, that’s the majority. I continue to battle on though as I believe it’s our prime responsibility to protect our children. Keep up the good work Bill.

  • Thanks for another informative post, Bill. I have been following your blog for a while now but this is the first time I am posting a comment. As a woman, I am encouraged to see that so many men have commented, and I want to say how grateful I am to you all.

    I have lived in the UK, and it grieves me to see how far and how fast it has fallen. Not that the US is much better… Ultimately, we wrestle not against flesh and blood, and this is an attack on the most basic aspect of our humanity (that God created us male and female) and on the most basic unit of human society (marriage). Homosexuality, feminism, trangsenderism, and abortion are all part of the same attack. The adversary knows that men are needed to counter this multi-pronged attack, so he silences men by speaking to women. It’s the oldest trick in his book (see Genesis 3:1). Here in the US we are witnessing the wholesale deployment of this strategy in the attack on Judge Kavanaugh. Anything a woman says must be believed — but of course, only what a radical, pro-abortion woman says against a conservative, pro-life man.

    It is time for all of us true disciples of Jesus Christ to speak up. Let us use whatever platform we have — especially the platform of prayer. Tomorrow, October 4, has been designated a day of prayer for Judge Kavanaugh. Please join us if you can. You may not like beer or approve of those who do, but please let your voice be heard in prayer on behalf of this conservative judge. The battle is ultimately about Roe v. Wade — i.e., for the unborn. Please speak up for the voiceless!

    That said, I apologize that I am posting this comment anonymously. I have a valid reason for doing so, and it is not cowardice or the need to be liked by the leftists that surround me.

  • I suppose Scotland now is a result of an entire society that is ‘de-Christianising’ real fast. Another example is the report of humanist weddings, which now outnumber church weddings there:
    https://www.theguardian.com/world/2018/aug/14/what-god-has-not-joined-together-the-rise-of-the-humanist-wedding

    But as Weeflea shows, report the Scottish Police and government themselves as the haters…

  • Thanks Bill
    Next step in Scotland is to have the thought police monitoring every church service and reporting back to Police HQ, . The church we attend is now preparing to go to a house setup,
    I expect if Labor gets Government control in Australia we will see a repeat of the Scotland experience.
    John Abbott I agree fully with you last few sentences.Serious righteous judgement is coming upon planet earth. Wickedness has gone too far and the church has tried but failed to stop the rot. 1400 people dead in Indonesia is terrible but I believe in the holiness and righteousness and goodness of God but more tragedies are coming no doubt.
    Walk close with the Lord. Seek his guidance every day,
    Phil

  • Thanks, Bill, for your response to my first posting.

    There seem to be two separate “Dear bigots” posters. See:
    http://caldronpool.com/scottish-government-threatens-christians-we-dont-want-your-religious-hate-if-we-see-or-hear-your-hate-were-reporting-you-end-of-sermon/

    One of these posters includes the words that you cite: “making people’s lives a misery because of their religious dress”.

    But these words are not found in the other poster – the poster in the photograph that you include in your article. And it is this poster that Otto Inglis (a UKIP politicisn) claims is about Protestant/Catholic sectarianism.

  • Thanks again Alex. Yes I am aware of the differing posters. The piece by Inglis is good except for that one sentence. There is absolutely nothing in that shorter poster to indicate anything about Prot-Cath dividion. The entire set of posters are the epitome of political correctness, so of course the ones on religion refer to Islam, which is such a sacred cow with the secular left PC crowd.

  • Scotland is now clearly post-Christian, and has returned to its pre-Christian pagan roots.

  • It appears at first glance that the Christ-haters have prevailed. I guess the battle really does belong to the Lord, eh?

  • What we need is for thousands of people to fill in the police hate crime form (here https://www.scotland.police.uk/secureforms/hate-crime/ ) and report a hate crime against truth and religion perpetrated by the Scottish police.
