Bloviating Zeppelin: The Mind Police

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

The Mind Police

Are coming.

They already exist in Canada. They're moving south rapidly. The Demorats welcome them all with open arms and open legs.

In Canada now:

Biblical standards are under attack by the "bastardized courts" of Canada, where activists who claim they have "hurt feelings" are demanding – and getting – penalties imposed against those who oppose the homosexual lifestyle, according to a family organization.


I knew this was coming boys and girls, and it's not just coming -- it's here, right now, in the courts of our neighbors to the north. And if it's present in Canada, guess what's to be on our very own steps shortly:

The majority of the complaints have been related to homosexuals claiming that they've been offended, that hate is being propagated against them. The majority being targeted are religious sectors of society," (CFAC spokesman Brian) Rushfeldt said.

He cited Alberta's provincial requirement as an example. That law requires that, "No person shall publish, issue or display or cause to be published, issued or displayed before the public any statement, publication, notice, sign, symbol, emblem or other representation that (a) indicates discrimination or an intention to discriminate against a person or a class of persons, or (b) is likely to expose a person or a class of persons to hatred or contempt bcause of the race, religious beliefs, colour, gender, physical disability, mental disability, age, ancestry, place of origin, marital status, source of income or family status of that person or class of persons."


But let's also do what I call the "logical extension" -- why stop with homosexuals? Why not extend these protections to cross-dressers, transexuals, paedophiles, misandrists, beastialists?

And at this point, what is the threshold for "offense"? Rushfeldt suggests:
How can I prove my feeling are hurt? I don't need to prove it. I just say it is so and it is so. Do I need to provide truth? No, not under the functions of the Human Rights Act. … Section 3(1) states that if something 'indicates discrimination' and 'is likely to expose to hatred or contempt' is a basis for action."

And friends, trust me, if speech is lost in public -- in Canada, then in the United States -- guess who's, logically, next?

You. Me. Anyone who writes, who has an opinion.



Then we really will be into the Thought and Speech Police.

Aided and abetted by your friendly neighborhood Demorats.

So.

You still want to stay home come election day? Write in "Mickey Mouse"?

Then I suppose you must not care for expressing your opinion or thoughts. Or spending a few days in jail. Or losing your home, your car, your pension. Or more.

I hope people here have more sense than the kanooks, the war on Christmas has seen a bit of a backlash, and this goofy "sue whoever and/or whatever offends you" mentality should be seen for what it is, lawyers fucking up our way of life. there are way too many lawyers in the world, and they haven't got enough predators culling that herd, perhaps opening a hunting season on lawyers would help the ecosystem, whaddya think? problem is, even hungry dogs would not eat the vile creatures.

funny how the hippies of the '60s have become the very thing they hated back in the day, isn't it? they have become "the man" who has to tell you how to live, think, act, etc. and hate freedom with a passion!

what a deal.

It really sickens me.

You are very right in identifying this as a free speech problem. This is no longer a dominant culture problem. It is all about free speech.

I'd wager a great percentage of our problems could be solved with two sentences consisting of four total words:

1. Tort reform.
2. Loser pays.

I guess I'll likely piss off any GWB supporters but what the heck...

IF it comes into the USA within the next year, you can thank Mr. Globalist himself, him and his North American Union bullshit...

If he can't give us away on the southern border, the bastard will give us away on the northern one...

Obvious solution: add any speech to porn and call it 'art'.

That is the automagic formula of the Left and it works just as well if you aren't a prude... throw in some T&A and you have *instant artwork*.

Yes I do foresee the day where the internet is an *all porn zone* and not just the 10% it is now....

'How dare you throw me in jail for my ART???'

That *will* work and no leftist will try to restrict porn after the decades they have spent loosening it up. Perhaps it is time to become a Playboy Affiliate.

Its for the ART!!

I am offended that you are offended by those who might have been offended.

I find it really offensive that these leftards are trying to take away my right to be offended by their offenses.

Either way, the whole thing sucks donkey balls.

(Gee hope I didn't offend anyone.)

They're going to have a tough time doing it in America but they will try. That is why we need a conservative Supreme Court, which is one thing that Bush did do right.

I say bring it.

I'm offended by La Raza's blatant racism against whites. I'm offended by Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson and their racism. I'm offended by the Code Pinkos and their hate speech against the troops. I'm offended by CIAR's discrimination against Jews. I'm even offended by Mark's calls for hunting lawyers (I'm married to one - lol).

See, as soon as this "progressive" crap comes around and bites them in the ass, it will be about as popular as a Pet Rock.
