Political Correctness is first and foremost an attack on free speech



By Cathy Duffy

This is a speech I gave many years a go on Political Correctness! I challenge anyone to say that this is/has not happened and call me a liar today!
So….What is Political Correctness? How did it start? More importantly, how did it become so successful?
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
To begin with, what you need to know is that Political Correctness is first and foremost an attack on free speech, clear thinking and discussion. Political Correctness is perpetrated by the Left in politics as a cover for their flawed ideology – a sort of Cultural Marxism.
By cloaking their strong ideas under the cover of not wishing to offend anyone (which naturally appeals to people’s better nature), they try to bypass debate and give a ‘received wisdom’ which must not be questioned. Anyone who disagrees with this ‘received wisdom’ must be a really nasty person and deserves to be ostracised by their peers. This peer pressure is instrumental in enforcing and expanding political correctness.
The old Soviet Union had Gulag’s which were a system of networks of forced labour camps, that at it’s peak, consisted of over 400 official prisons and held millions of prisoners. In the Stalin era, the prison population became increasing enemies who did not subscribe to his political, religious or economic teachings. The Russian Gulag system of forced labour camps became a symbol of tyranny and oppression.
The European Union also has a Gulag, an intellectual Gulag known as Political Correctness. This is the beginning of the Gulag, the beginning of your loss of freedom.
In the old Soviet Union they were told that they needed a federal state to avoid war. In the EU they are telling us the same thing. In short, the same ideology. The EU is the same old Soviet model presented in Western guise. But like the Soviet Union, the EU has within itself the sins of its own demise.
Political correctness as it is better known, knows no restraints and the new thought police remain busy as ever inventing new terms to ridicule its opponents and relentlessly attacking those who merely question their ever obtrusive and frankly Marxist inspired propaganda. And it is Marxist ideology at work here.
Economic Marxism failed spectacularly of course and in 1989 the oppressed people of Eastern Europe collectively and understandably threw off the yoke of their communist overlords, while the ‘left’ in the west looked on in anguish as their philosophy was ripped to shreds by events. However, cultural Marxism has remained not only rampant but is succeeding in changing societies throughout the west. Their desire to change and defeat western culture and civilization is as strong as ever, and their weapons have been and remain political correctness combined with the progressive erosion of values long held.
Unfortunately when it collapses here in the West, and it will, it will leave mass destruction behind and we will be left with huge economic and ethnic problems. The old Soviet Union system was incapable of reform and so is the EU – but there is an alternative to being ruled by those 2 dozen or so self appointed officials in Brussels – it is called Independence! You don’t have to accept what they have planned for you.
And so, for the first time in OUR history, we are not free to say what we think. If we say something deemed offensive or insensitive, we may be in serious trouble or maybe even punished. Everyone is so terrified of being labelled ‘inappropriate’ or ‘politically incorrect’ that they are afraid to open their mouths or express an opinion.
Political Correctness is a cancer that has spread throughout all facets of life from politics to the office, and yes, even to the churches. Political Correctness is the devil’s modern day scud missile, it is the mainstay of liberalism and it seems that a deteriorating society is exactly what it strives for. Political Correctness is nothing less than a Marxist ideology translated into economic and cultural terms going back to the time of WW1.
There are several definitions used for Political Correctness, some of which include;
1) Doing the reverse of what common sense would suggest.
2) Inconveniencing the innocent while making life easier for the wrong-doer.
3) Not telling the truth in case it offends.
4) Changing the language where you perceive it may offend.
5) Doing exactly the opposite of what you preach.
6) What you do has the effect of making the problem you were trying to cure, worse.
7) Doing ridiculous things just for a political reason.
8) Favouring a minority just for political reason.
Political Correctness as we know it today started as a ‘Think Tank’ called the Frankfurt School in Germany. The Frankfurt School is not a place as such, but a school of thought for Research in philosophy and the social sciences from a Marxist perspective.
It was going to be called The Institute of Marxism but in order to hide its Marxist roots, it became known as The Institute of Social Research. To begin with the school and the institute were indistinguishable and in 1923 the institute was officially established.
Here was a group of thinkers who pulled together to find a solution to the biggest problem facing the implementers of Communism in Russia.
The problem? Why wasn’t Communism spreading?
Their answer? Because Western Civilisation was in the way!
In 1935, after Hitler came to power, the Frankfurt School moved to New York City, where they continued their work by translating Marxism from economic to cultural terms using Sigmund Freud’s psychological conditioning mechanisms to get Americans to buy into Political Correctness. In 1941 they moved to California to spread their wings.
Very basically, the Frankfurt School believed that as long as an individual had the belief – or even the hope of belief – that his divine gift of reason could solve the problems facing society, then that society would never reach the state of hopelessness and alienation that they considered necessary to provoke a socialist revolution. Their task, therefore, was to as swiftly as possible; undermine the Judeo-Christian legacy.
To do this they called for the most negative destructive criticism possible of every sphere of life which would be designed to de-stabilize society and bring down what they saw as the ‘Oppressive order’. Their policies, they hoped, would spread like a virus.
Now at the root of Communism was the theory that all the valid ideas came from the effect of the social group of the masses and that the individual was nothing! And further, they believed that the only way for Communism to advance was to HELP Western Civilisation to destroy itself by undermining its foundations by chipping away at the rights of those annoying individuals.
They also decided that one way to do this would be to change everyone’s speech and thought patterns by spreading the idea that vocalising your beliefs is disrespectful to others and must be avoided to make up for past iniquities and injustices. This could then be used to stifle any discussion which might show up the lack of common sense in their ideology.
Political Correctness is not funny. It is here now and growing still, and it will eventually destroy, as it seeks to destroy, everything that we have ever defined as out freedom, and our culture.
I would just like to read a few of their other recommendations and they are;
1) The creation of racism offences.
2) Continual change to create confusion.
3) The teaching of sex and homosexuality to children.
4) The undermining of schools and teachers authority.
5) Huge immigration to destroy national identity.
6) The promotion of excessive drinking.
7) Emptying of Churches
8) An unreliable legal system with bias against the victim of crime.
9) Dependency on the State or State benefits.
10) Control and dumbing down of the media.
11) Encouraging the breakdown of the family.
Does any of this sound familiar to you??????
This ladies and gentlemen, is Great Britain 1997 onwards and all due to our wicked, evil and traitorous Marxist Government!
Even our education system is betraying our children and a politically correct syllabus is seeing them leave school in such an ignorant state that they are hopelessly ill equipped to cope in an adult world.
One in four pupils leaves school functionally illiterate.
Primary School teachers will no longer be required to cover the past history of the Romans, Vikings, Tudors, Queen Victoria, the Second World War, or even the horrors of Nazism. Further, universities have to offer remedial teaching in basic subjects. Even some pupils who got four A’s at A-Level can’t manage mental arithmetic. Ask them to multiply two single digits together and they will reach for a calculator. Ask them questions about the last thousand years of British History and watch the blank faces.
By the dumbing down of education, the creation of huge state sector employment, and large scale immigration, New Labour has effectively created a captive audience to vote for them or Blue Labour should the Conservatives actually get back into power.
One of the main ideas of the Frankfurt School was to exploit Freud’s idea of ‘pansexualism’ – the search for pleasure, the exploitation of the differences between the sexes, the overthrowing of traditional relationships between men and women and to further their aims, they would;
1) Attack the authority of the father, deny the specific roles of father and mother and wrest away from families their rights as primary educators of their children.
2) Abolish differences in the education of boys and girls.
3) Abolish all forms of male dominance – hence the presence of women in the Armed Forces.
4) Declare woman to be an ‘oppressed class’ and men as ‘oppressors’.
Willi M├╝nzenberg who was a leading propagandist for the KPD (Communist Party of Germany), and who was later murdered by the NKVD (which was better known for the activities of the Gulags, and later went onto be known as the KGB), summed up the Franfurt School’s long-term operation thus:
“We will make the West so corrupt that it stinks”
The school believed that there were two types of revolution, a) Political & b) Cultural.
Cultural revolution demolishes from within. They saw it as a long-term project and kept their sights clearly focused on the family, education, media, sex and popular culture.
Now “Critical Theory” or the “Critical Theory of Society” is a label used by the Frankfurt School, their intellectual and social network, and those influenced by them intellectually to describe their own work.
The School is orientated towards ‘Radical Social Change’.
The Frankfurt School theory has influenced some segments of the left wing or leftist thought – particularly the ‘New Left’ or ‘New Labour’.
Political Correctness has made our old friend, common sense, a thing of the past now, so please….Do not let anyone fool you into thinking that PC is about being nice to people, tolerant and treating them with proper respect. That’s called plain old “Good Manners”.
It is one thing to be educated, considerate, polite and have good manners, and another to be forced to self-censor and say things that are totally incorrect in order to comply with the arbitrary dictum of a deceiving and fanatical far-left agenda. It is the nature of Western Civilisation to be civilised, respectful of others, and concerned with correcting injustices.
We don’t NEED PC to make us think we are not civilised on our own and must have out thoughts and words restricted.
Political Correctness has been deliberately designed to subvert free speech, debate, and common sense. Far from being tolerant, PC people are not the most tolerant people of all, and actually have some of the worse manners preferring to just shout abuse at you.
The PC Brigade will tell you that you are offending ‘victims’ or encouraging ‘hate’. Don’t fall for this – their real reason is to control you and to stop you identifying common sense that may expose the weakness in their dogma. Free speech is the only way we have of judging people’s opinions and ideas.
I’m sure all of you would agree that free speech does not give us the right to insult others or attempt to stir up hatred and violence. Free speech means listening to other people’s views and if they differ from ours, arguing against them. It doesn’t mean attempting to smear anyone you disagree with in order to silence them!
Prior to 1832 the ordinary citizens of this country had no voice in parliament. If the main political parties continue to be controlled by the Liberal Elite, history will repeat itself.
We must protect our right of free speech in the United Kingdom. Politicians and the public must be free to discuss all issues in a rational and civilised manner, without the limitations imposed on them by one small section of society. Free Political thinking and discussion is the cornerstone of democracy.
The need for free thought and free speech in a society is very important and cannot be over emphasised.
You should by now realise that Political Correctness is not only a self defeating tyranny and a sort of ‘social dementia’, it is an insidious attack on free thinking, truth, and free speech by a self appointed extreme left vociferous minority.
The whole charade is costing the country an absolute fortune and tying us all up in knots, while the only people that gain out of it are the wrong-doers.
We need a government strong enough to repeal or drastically modify the legislation on which most of this PC nonsense has its ultimate power base – The Human Rights Act, some parts of the Employment and Health & Safety Law and the Police & Criminal Evidence Act, and we of course, need to withdraw from the EU where much of this nonsense does comes from.
Political Correctness remains just what it was intended to be: a sophisticated and dangerous form of censorship and oppression, imposed upon us with the ultimate goal of manipulating, brainwashing, and destroying our society.
If we allow the subversion of our values and interests to continue, we will (in future generations) lose all that our ancestors suffered and died for.
So what is the inevitable result of Political Correctness?
Well, a reading of history – it is in all mainstream historical accounts – tells us that we are about to lose the most precious thing we have – our individual freedoms.
By using the excuse of not upsetting anyone, the PC Brigade are demanding that people behave like the fool who would please everyone; that everyone must become such a fool! And, that all must accept the notions of Political Correctness as truth, or else!
This is the same mentality that inspired the Inquisition and forced Galileo to recant; the same mentality that inspired the Nazis and brought about the Holocaust. Once expression gets
placed in a straight-jacket of social truth, then the madness that occurs in all totalitarian states is obtained.
Life, in private and public, becomes a meaningless charade where delusion thrives and terror rules.
Political Correctness IS A Social Dementia and unless plain speaking is allowed, clear thinking is denied. There can be no good reason for denying freedom of expression, there is no case to rebut, only the empty slogans of people inspired by selfishness and unrestrained by morality.
The proponents of this nonsense neither understand the implications of what they say, nor why they are saying it: They are simply insane!
Make no doubt about this, we are in trouble as a nation and people have to stop being afraid! Remember, we have been betrayed by the liberal elite and they must not be allowed to carry on with their wanton destruction of everything our fore-fathers fought and died for – namely our freedom.
We need change – People need to get out there and vote for the British National Party. There is only one option for this country now – for the United Kingdom - and that is ‘patriotism’. Only the British National Party can/is giving people hope. As I have already mentioned, we are in trouble and our people must stop moaning, and more importantly, stop being afraid.
All of you here know that we need change. People need to vote – it’s the only thing we have. The British National Party are the only party that threatens the establishment and people need to get out and vote for their land – the very land that our ancestors fought and died for. We owe to them, to their courage, and to their memories.
The West has never been under such attack as it is now. There is one big problem that needs to be removed from our society before we can move on and that is modern liberalism.
The emotional roots of PC must be challenged. PC is founded on Western guilt and self-loathing which can be countered by more objective teaching of history and Western values. Foundations can be set up to preserve and promote Western heritage and values.
People in Britain should remember that they have more to be proud of than guilty. These little rain-swept isles of the West coast of the European peninsula have given an utterly disproportionate amount to the world, including parliamentary democracy, industrialisation, and yes, even football!
If we allow it to continue to control our very lives, we can wave ‘Good Bye’ to the birthplace of Western democracy, to liberty and to freedom.
We don’t need Political Correctness. All citizens who cherish liberty must reject it. Freedom of speech must be preserved in Great Britain if we are to continue to be free.
We are forewarned!
