PC transforms the human rights movement into the bigot rights industry, by Jennifer Oriel. At last, someone gets it:
The principal victims of bigot rights are heterosexual men of Anglo-European descent whose advocacy of freedom, rationality and reason places them on the Right side of politics in the 21st century.
The political repression of freethinkers by the bigot rights movement is calculated. PC bigotry is so comprehensive it engulfs the establishment whose members openly celebrate the structural oppression and public humiliation of those excluded from their state-sanctified system of privilege.
Bill Leak’s cartoon about a drunken man neglectful of his son is a case in point.
The Australian Human Rights Commission is handling a complaint over the Leak illustration … Some people have chosen to take offence because the inebriated figure was depicted as indigenous. … Leak’s illustration revealed a well-documented empirical truth: that some men are alcoholics, some alcoholics neglect their children and some alcoholic men who neglect their children are indigenous.
In a rational world where politics were divested of ideology and politicians invested in truth, complaints about Leak’s cartoon would be dismissed. In the world of the bigot rights industry, however, feelings of offence have superseded empirical truth as the highest standard of Western jurisprudence. …
Section 18C is anti-enlightenment revolution codified as law. It effects the erosion of truth, rationality and reason as the foundations of Western law by replacing them with ideology, feelings and a consequent culture of unreason.
Following the cartoon’s publication, Race Discrimination Commissioner Tim Soutphommasane … wrote on Facebook: “If there are Aboriginal Australians who have been racially offended, insulted, humiliated or intimidated, they can consider lodging a complaint under the Racial Discrimination Act with the Commission”. A social media storm ensued in which PC bigots vilified Leak as racist. … Leak is entering a bastion of Left politics engineered to produce his silence. …
The UN is the institution being used by the left:
The epicentre of the bigot rights movement is the UN’s human rights office. The founding mission of the UN was to seed global enlightenment by the establishment of universal human rights. It has been replaced by minority rights politics championed by socialists and Islamists.
Contemporary minority politics is the progeny of Herbert Marcuse … [who advocates] a politics founded on the principle of “not equal, but more representation of the Left”. …
The Marxist dictatorship of the proletariat has been replaced by the neo-Marxist dictatorship of manufactured minorities. …
Far from correcting their agenda of inequality, bigot rights activists are pursuing it with increased irrationality and anger. The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein, recently demonised conservative politicians of eight countries for opposing his agenda. …
Unraveling the Enlightenment:
Critical legal theorists attack objective inquiry, empirical truth and logical reasoning as the basis of Western law and evidentiary standards. They decry enlightenment thought and contend instead that subjectivity, feelings and emotions are a valid basis for legal judgment.
The latest PC push: borders are xenophobic and intolerant. No doubt supporting them will soon be declared hate speech. The the tv program “Border Security” will be held up and publicly mocked and derided by the ABC.
The UN has endorsed a new campaign to classify dissent from its open border policy as “xenophobia” and “intolerance”.
