Pablum for the Masses

2014/05/27

The ultimate goal and the attributes presented herein is that of criminalizing “politically incorrect” speech (being of course anything that the special interest group should disagree with) by some means of “social justice.” Doubt it can happen? Already in Canada and the UK, one can be arrested for saying something in public that somebody perceives as offensive (and this includes something as simple as publicly posting or reading aloud a verse from a selected religion, that alludes to condemning something deemed morally deviant or that is in opposition to natural law). In other words, it hurts their feelings.

Is America Starting To Target Thought Crime?

(Excerpt via The Daily Caller)

Last week, Michelle Obama made headlines when she exhorted graduating high schoolers in a commencement address to monitor their families for politically incorrect thoughts and behaviors.

To one journalist, this was more than an off-hand comment made by the first lady. In the opinion of Cheryl Chumley, a reporter for The Washington Times and the author of “Police State USA,” Michelle Obama’s remark reflects a growing trend in America to target and attack individuals for committing “thought crime.”

“Michelle Obama’s push for kids around the nation to monitor their family members for perceived racist comments is just another way the government seeks to inject itself into an area it doesn’t really belong — the American home,” Chumley told The Daily Caller Monday.

“Having the first lady wag her finger at us and send America’s youth on some sort of quest to scour the homes and backyards of our nation’s families for any mention of a racist joke, slur or slight is nanny-governance run amok — something that belongs in a George Orwell novel, not the White House,” Chumley said.

Chumley sees a troubling growth of America’s most powerful political figures now singling out private individuals for their beliefs, and using government agencies and public denunciations to intimidate opponents into silence.

“Harry Reid attacking the Koch brothers for the crime of giving money to conservative causes is just as bad. President Obama, Joe Biden and the entire cast of the White House, for slamming lawful gun owners for exercising their Second Amendment rights, and for trying to drum up emotional-fueled support to ram through gun control,” Chumley listed off. “The IRS targeting of tea party and patriotic non-profits and our nation’s highest law enforcement official, Eric Holder stonewalling on a special prosecutor appointment — does it get any more police state than that?”

The Washington Times reporter sees the creation of hate crime laws as one of the first steps in our country’s history in the direction of attacking unpopular and politically incorrect thoughts in America.

“What comes to mind when I think of the genesis for this growing trend of government to control Americans’ speech, and by extension, thoughts, is when the notion of hate crime was brought into our criminal prosecution system — as if acts of violence that are committed because of racial divides deserve a different category of ‘extra-special bad,’” Chumley stated.

“Political correctness and pandering politicians have fueled this narrative in recent years. Anybody who throws the race card on a regular basis — think Eric Holder, Al Sharpton, Harry Reid — is guilty to a certain degree of clamping down on free speech, and in turn, making Americans even wary of what they think.”

Often the use of history as a political weapon takes on an acute form by Leftists, and they begin to burn unwanted books and demolish unwanted monuments. However, both books and monuments play here only as a tool, and the goal of the Leftists, in accordance with Social Darwinism, is to create such “external living conditions” that all political opponents will shut their mouths and “correct” their behavior.

The use of science as a political weapon leads to corruption of science.

The use of women’s problems as a political weapon corrupts both women and men.

The use of censorship as a political weapon corrupts information.

The use of education as a political weapon leads to corruption of education–indoctrination.

Check your level of education–who among you know that the exact translation of the word “fascism” from Italian is “collectivism?” How many know that the leader of the Russian Communists Lenin sent Mussolini a congratulatory telegram when the fascists collectivists seized power in Italy in 1922? Who remembers the words of Joseph Goebbels that “Lenin was the greatest man, second only to Hitler, and the difference between communism and the Hitler faith was very slight?” How many of you are familiar with Hitler’s dictum about the Nazis: “We are socialists, we are the enemies of today’s capitalist system of exploitation…and we are determined to destroy this system under all conditions.”  — The Marxist Archipelago
