Free Speech, Free Association and Freedom

The Tea Party movement in the USA is under constant attack from the ruling Media Class and its activists on the Left, who seek to smear it with accusations of racism, intolerance, latent violence and bigotry. As we have pointed out in previous articles the violence in politics is never latent but actual and it is almost exclusively employed by the Left. One would have to go back to the US and Europe of the 1930’s to find a period when the Right met Leftist violence with violence. The 1945 military defeat of the National Socialists in Germany (a Socialist Party that employed Darwinian racial ideology to oppose Marxian economic ideology) left the Marxist Government of the Soviet Union as master of Eastern Europe. When this victory was followed by the 1948 military victory of the Marxists in China and then the expansion of Communism across the world (North Korea, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Tibet, Mongolia, Cuba and much of Africa) the effect was to redefine political thinking everywhere. Communist guerilla movements sprang up in the Philippines, Malaya, Kenya, Cyprus, and many parts of South America and Marxism seemed unstoppable. In the Western World the Leftist intellectual elites, especially those in Academia, believed that history was on their side and they emerged confidently from the Second World War and the 1950’s, and in a position to write history as victors. The first thing that the Leftist intellectuals achieved was the incontrovertible definition of Nazism and Fascism as one and the same thing. It also labeled them as conservative ideologies and thus successfully placed the broad Right on the defensive, where it has been ever since.

Ronald Reagan, a politician with experience of fighting Communist ideologues in Hollywood’s movie industry, and a man that the American Left greatly underestimated until it was too late, was able to gain the leadership of the Republican Party and then the White House. His great achievements included using American economic and military power to face down the Soviet Union (thus temporarily rolling back the ideological domination of the Left in the West) and restoring the confidence of conservatives. Unfortunately Reagan was a victim of an assassination attempt that probably reduced his abilities and stamina, but more importantly his period in office coincided with the rise of the revolutionary Media Class. None realized at the time that a new and powerful Class was entering the political scene, not even the core constituencies of that Class. Nor did anyone foresee that the newly formed Class would ally itself with the Left, given that its members were rich and privileged and getting richer by the day. Nor would it become clear until decades later that this Class had a revolutionary agenda that transcended the old Marxist-driven politics of the Left.

And so to today, when the Media Class has remade the Democrat Party, anointed its leader and placed him in the White House, together with an overwhelming majority in Congress. The same forces of technology have been at work in all Western Countries and produced Media Class domination of their politics to a greater or lesser extent. Two countries where this process has emerged with clarity are Canada and the UK. Just as in the USA, the Media Class in each of those countries has allied with the Left and is stealthily pursuing a revolutionary agenda that requires the elimination of free speech. The Media Class agenda is rarely preoccupied with economic matters and its members have little interest in the fate of the poor and the working people, but it shares with the Left a desire for a repudiation of the West’s Judaeo/Christian heritage, a massive expansion of Government power and the criminalization of any opposition to its agenda. It shares the Left’s appetite for Government power because it is the key to the fast imposition of unpopular policies. As we have written many times on this website, the core people of the Media Class are not willing to wait, for being addicted to hedonism they want what they want now. Homosexuals and the heterosexual hedonists who inhabit Hollywood and similar dens are not interested in the long term future. The next orgasm, the next drink, the next fix, the next party, and the next opportunity to strut before an audience-these are the things that mark the distance of their horizon. With no children, no interest in family and Nation and no belief in an Afterlife and a Judgment Day, they live only for the present and for fantasies. Brian Brown, the President of the National Organization for Marriage, a Christian organization that has been doing heroic work in resisting the ‘Same-sex Marriage’ juggernaut, recently wrote these words. “This is a movement which makes it increasingly clear that gender is something in our heads and our bodies are irrelevant, gender is just a desire and desire trumps objective reality. Nothing is essentialist or real but human fantasy, want, desire.”

Brown was commenting on the latest agenda item of the new Ruling Class, which was a stalled attempt in the New Hampshire legislature to scrap gender. What the activists were seeking was the right for anyone to wake up in the morning and decide on his/her sexuality for the day. There would, for example, no longer be men’s and women’s toilets and showers and ‘transgender’ people would at last feel comfortable in society. This is where the new Media Class intends to take us and on this website we say that it is making a revolution. Who can deny this? This new Class, allied as it is with the revolutionary Left, is seeking to overthrow the old moral values- and a recreation of sex and gender are at the heart of its agenda. Together, the Media Class and its Leftist allies are using the slogans of ‘non-discrimination’, tolerance and ‘inclusion’ (borrowed from the Black Civil Rights campaign), and seeking to smear their opponents on the Right with Nazi/Fascist labeling. The new Class can only impose its revolution by criminalizing speech it does not approve of, restricting the right of free association, restricting freedom of political and moral actions and criminalizing its opponents. Thus we have laws which create new groups of victims. Violence against the person, always a crime, is now less a crime than if it is accompanied by certain specified motives, when it becomes a ‘Hate Crime’. Language used that might just have been unkind or objectionable (or true!) can now be classed as ‘Hate Speech’ and expose the user to bankruptcy, for who can afford to legally contest an accuser who is funded by the State? In the UK and Canada, two Western countries that do not have speech and free association protected by a Constitution, the right of free speech and free association have been stealthily jettisoned. In both countries, truth is no defense if the charge is of discriminatory intent or causing discomfort to specially defined groups. In the UK, the BNP has been ordered to accept into membership people who oppose its policies. You can be sure that the US Media Class and its Leftist allies intend to emulate those countries and indeed have already started down the same path. As Christianity is eliminated from every public place, and many private places too, it is being replaced by all those things that will drag the Nation into the gutter. Below is a poem that is alleged to have been written by a youngster. Whether or not the poet was a child, the poem is a sad but accurate comment on the progress of the Media Class revolution.

Since the Pledge of Allegiance and The Lord’s Prayer are not allowed in most public schools anymore, because the word ‘God’ is mentioned, a kid in Arizona wrote the attached.

NEW School prayer

Now I sit me down in school
Where praying is against the rule
For this great nation under God
Finds mention of Him very odd.
If Scripture now the class recites,
It violates the Bill of Rights.
And anytime my head I bow
Becomes a Federal matter now.
Our hair can be purple, orange or green,
That’s no offense; it’s a freedom scene.
The law is specific, the law is precise.
Prayers spoken aloud are a serious vice.
For praying in a public hall
Might offend someone with no faith at all.
In silence alone we must meditate,
God’s name is prohibited by the state.
We’re allowed to cuss and dress like freaks,
And pierce our noses, tongues and cheeks..
They’ve outlawed guns, but FIRST the Bible.
To quote the Good Book makes me liable.
We can elect a pregnant Senior Queen,
And the ‘unwed daddy,’ our Senior King..
It’s ‘inappropriate’ to teach right from wrong,
We’re taught that such ‘judgments’ do not belong.
We can get our condoms and birth controls,
Study witchcraft, vampires and totem poles.
But the Ten Commandments are not allowed,
No word of God must reach this crowd.
It’s scary here I must confess,
When chaos reigns the school’s a mess.
So, Lord, this silent plea I make:
Should I be shot; My soul please take!
