Thought Police

Big Brother is watching You.

Sometimes it’s called Political Correctness, and sometimes Equality and Diversity, and sometimes Inclusively, but by whatever name it’s a sickness taking over our society in the name of Human Rights.  If you say the wrong thing, if your opinions don’t fit in, if anyone thinks you show disrespect towards minorities, you too could be prosecuted for a hate crime.

There was of course no way of knowing whether you were being watched at any given moment.  ~  George Orwell, from 1984.

Along with many, many other UK Institutions All Souls College, Oxford, now has a diversity officer, whose job it is to warn or discipline colleagues who stereotype, show disrespect towards minorities, or create a climate in which an individual might feel their dignity infringed.  That sounds a lot like thought police to me.

Campuses that were once havens of free speech are now patrolled and regulated by thought police.  Intellectual dishonesty has become a job requirement for University Administrators.  ~  Michael Barone.

A woman, 26, appeared in court accused of raping a man, twice.  How the hell does that work?  How can a woman rape a man?  Turns out that the rapist, Katie Brennan, was born a man, but we weren’t initially allowed to know that because of the political correctness surrounding misgendering.  To qualify as rape I assume that Katie Brennan still had male genitals at the time of the assault, but we aren’t allowed to know that either.  I do know that, for a woman, the transgender Katie Brennan looks like a bloke.

The militant transgender lobby are powerful, and have found natural allies within the left-leaning liberal BBC, (British Broadcasting Corporation).  Anyone who questions the self-proclaimed ‘rights’ of transgender people will be silenced.

Axe, machete, knife, truck, and bomb attacks all across Europe are responded to by anti-terror squads, even though nobody in the media ever calls these incidents terrorism, and certainly never Islamic religious terrorism.  In order to fit in with multiculturalism we are usually told that the attacker comes from somewhere that isn’t on President Trump’s list of banned countries, (until the real story comes out).  Even the British Government are keen to push this non-Islamic terrorism line by saying that one in three terror suspects arrested in Britain last year was white.  Which means that two-thirds of those arrested in the UK on suspicion of being a terrorist was non-white.  Only 10% of the censored UK population is non-white ~ so 10% of our population commit 66% of terrorist attacks.  Yet, nobody is ever allowed to say that Islamic extremism is a problem in Great Britain ~ because of Political Correctness.

The term ‘Political Correctness’ has always appalled me, reminding me of Orwell’s ‘Thought Police’ and fascist regimes.  ~  Helmut Newton

The thought police are powerful enough to stifle scientific debate, change world politics, and even dictate the car you drive to work.  Anyone who dares to challenge the politically correct view that man-made carbon dioxide is causing catastrophic anthropogenic climate change will be labeled a ‘denier’.  This is the language of religious intolerance and has nothing to do with science.  You know what?  The whole man-made global warming industry is a scam, and pointing out that the Emperor has no clothes will have the proponents of global warming going into fits of apoplexy.  But respectable scientists never question the man-made global warming mantra because to do so would mean that they never again get published, never get another grant, see their tenure cut off…  Question anthropogenic climate change and your career as a scientist is over.

Women can say anything they want to men, or blacks to whites, with impunity.  But strong words in the other direction can bring down the wrath of the thought police, as well as punishments… ~  Thomas Sowell

I am English, and I like to think I’m a Gentleman, so there are some things I would never say in public, and there are some opinions which are an anathema to me.  However, there are some things I’d like to say, and some thoughts I’d like to think, that I’m not allowed to for fear of running up against the Politically Correct, Diversity Inclusive, Thought Police.  I thought we’d spent the last few hundred years working and fighting for freedom of thought and expression.

Maybe not.  Maybe I am a prisoner in my own land.

Remember, Big Brother is watching You.

  1. I agree with all you say. I work with all ethnic groups, age groups, and know plenty who identify with other than their given gender. To be honest, I can take each person one on one…and give them the benefit of the doubt. However, that doesn’t mean I would feel safe as a white woman walking into certain neighborhoods or establishments.

    Does that mean I’m prejudiced? Maybe. But I definitely know that the whole PC thing has gone too far. It’s one-sided. White people (especially white males) have been castrated, basically…unable to be free in thinking or speaking…even open, honest discussion.

    I work with a latina woman who had some things to say about other minority groups…and she said it was perfectly acceptable because she is also a minority…so no one will pretend to be offended. She’s right. If I said what she said…I would have been labeled a racist for sure.

    Stereotypes are generally correct, unfortunately. Not always…but you often CAN read a book by its cover. I said “often”…not always. Life teaches you that there are some characteristics about groups/people that don’t change. But! It is possible for individuals to change…and break away from the herd. In which case, that person becomes a liability to the herd…and is ostracized.

    I could go on and on…anyway, thanks for the post!

    1. I firmly believe that every person is an individual who deserves to be given a fair chance, and that it’s wrong to stereotype individuals. I also firmly believe that people generally tend to conform to the herd they run with ~ or risk being ostracised.
      At times my thoughts and opinions are so old-fashioned that they would be characterised as racist by the more politically correct among us ~ but so long as my words and deeds are those of a kind and considerate English Gentleman I’m content that I have done right by society and the individuals within it.
      As for the ‘thought police’ ~ they can fuck off back under the rock they crawled out from.
      As always, thanks for your insightful comments.
      ❤ ❤ ❤ 😉

  2. Well said, very well said, but I’m sorry to hear you feel the way most Americans do these past 8 years. It’s such a needless caution we must live.

    1. The scary thing is it probably isn’t true that if you haven’t done anything wrong you can’t get into trouble…. 😉

  3. It would be boastful to think the gov would think I’m interesting.. I’m sure my blog is shelved somewhere near ‘mostly harmless’ 😉
    I agree. I’ve been called a racist. That’s fine. I’ve been called worse, IMO.
    I do find it troubling that folks think you can’t be racist if they aren’t white.
    Now, I’m going to go look at my Samsung TV to see if it’s watch me!

  4. Big Brother is already watching us, at least in the U.S. According to the latest Wikileaks Vault 7 release, Samsung TV’s were programmed to watch us (like Orwell’s telescreens.) Google has been watching us for years. The CIA knows what I am typing at this very moment. It is all a plan to enslave us and create the totalitarian oligarchy also known as Globalism. We will stop them, though! We have already begun to stop them. Their days are numbered!

    1. Anybody watching me is going to get very bored ~ or shocked. Mostly bored I think. ❤

      1. I think all people would shock each other a bit… maybe bore them too. Of course with all this surveillance it is quite odd that they couldn’t thwart the 911 attacks, and many other attacks.

  5. Hey Jack! As you know, you and I differ on a couple of these issues, and I am not one to argue with a friend … yes, I consider you a friend. But I will just say a couple of things. I agree that sometimes the whole political correctness thing is carried to extremes. The way I view true ‘political correctness’ is in terms of kindness, politeness. Just common courtesy, if you will. I try (and often fail) to treat everybody with dignity and respect until a specific individual, by his or her behaviour, deems himself/herself unworthy of respect. It shouldn’t matter what religion, what skin colour … it is, for me, about humanity … all humanity. I am deeply disturbed by the white supremacist movement that is gaining momentum here in the U.S., but also in parts of Europe, hence the popularity of Geert Wilders. As re climate change … we will just have to agree to disagree. 😀 Neither of us will likely live to see the results, either way! Hugs, my friend!

    1. Hi Jill, that’s the whole point ~ we can agree to differ on some issues and not fall out, nor report one another to the ‘thought police’. And yet, in terms of our core values I believe we are pretty much the same. People deserve to be treated with acceptance, consideration, kindness, politeness, and understanding, (especially women by men). A real Gentleman treats everyone with courtesy, acts with dignity, and is unfailingly polite in word and deed. Sometimes that goes against what I’m thinking, and sometimes I’m polite through gritted teeth, but as yet thinking someone is a wazzock isn’t against the law….
      It saddens me that I don’t think President Trump will ever be a Gentleman.
      But it also saddens me that some who act like Gentlemen and Ladies can be real bastards at heart.
      As for climate change, I don’t care so much, because I’ll not live long enough to have to really worry about it…
      ❤ ❤ ❤

      1. Agreed! I think our basic values are very close, we just differ on some of the minutiae. I have 3-4 friends, yourself included, with whom I can disagree respectfully and remain friends. The rest simply must get the last word in, must be demeaning and take the argument to a personal level, and that is why I now have fewer friends than I had a year ago. It is saddening, it is maddening, but at the end of the day, I am who I am, and I must say what I believe to be true. I live with me, with my conscience, 24/7, and that is who I must please. As re climate change … I won’t be here to see it either, but I keep having this Pollyana goal to leave the world a bit better than I found it. Many hugs and love to you, my friend! ❤
