Author Theodore Dalrymple writes:
“In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, not to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is…in some small way to become evil oneself. One’s standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to.”
Hence the motivations behind the recent deluge of transsexual-themed propaganda. We are being forced to call men as women, and women as men, despite all knowing better. Regardless of what mutilations have been performed on the genitals, a simple DNA test can easily tell which gender someone actually is. Examination of the abdomen of a transsexual male will not reveal ovaries or a uterus, and his phony breasts will not produce milk. Examination of the skeletal structure is also a dead giveaway. There is no basis for calling someone a gender different from other than what they were born as, other than as prostration to the gods of political correctness.
That’s what political correctness is all about these days – lying to enhance social position. As Dalrymple wrote above, a society of liars is to easy to control – they have no backbone, and will simply go along with whatever The Party apparatus deems necessary at a certain time (i.e. Bolsheviks).
The current Great Crisis of Our Age is that North Carolina recently passed a bill that ensured trannies could not use bathrooms that do not correspond to their actual gender. Bruce Springsteen has cancelled a concert over the matter. Paypal and other businesses are punishing the state by refusing to do business or base their operations there. The press is united against the state. They say the law is “discriminatory,” and therefore evil.
You know what. I actually agree with them. The law is discriminatory.
And I think that’s great.
I have no clue where all of this deluge of sympathy for transsexuals came from over the last few years, other than being spawned from the pocketbooks of liberal billionaires. On what basis do these people have rights as some kind of protected group? The only thing these degenerates deserve is a padded cell.
Of course, as we know from the standard playbook, when the left loses an election, their cause instantly becomes a civil rights problem, and they are able to achieve their original objective anyways by going to the liberal court system. And that is exactly what is being plotted at this moment. The purpose of elections in modern-day America eludes me.
I personally would not put too much weight on the tech industry’s threats that the law will cost North Carolinians “hundreds of good jobs.” As is common knowledge, the tech industry goes to immense lengths to hire cheap, young, foreigners through the H1B visa program instead of actual Americans, so I doubt PayPal setting up shop in North Carolina would have benefited the residents much at all (though it would have led to rise in remittances to India being sent from that state.)
The tech industry is of course, consummate hypocrites. As has been pointed out on other websites, the tech industry has no quibble about doing business with Muslim regimes that offer homosexuals little more than a tall branch and short rope. Furthermore, the tech industry are the absolute kings of age discrimination, so any lecturing they offer on the matter ought to go in one ear and out the other. Then of course, there is the whole issue with Apple turning China into the world’s biggest sweat shop – but Tim Cook still somehow thinks he has the moral authority to lecture others on civil rights.
If I was Governor Pat McCrory, I would tell PayPal and Apple the following:
“Dear Apple and PayPal. You say our bill is discriminatory. You say it is in opposition to civil liberties. We can have that discussion. On these conditions:
- You will immediately cease all age discrimination in your hiring practices.
- You will immediately cease discriminating against the native-born in favor of foreigners.
- You will immediately cease the manufacture of your goods in foreign countries that do not offer the same pay, environmental, and labor protections that America does.
- You will immediately cease all global operations in countries that do not offer civil liberties at least as potent as those guaranteed by the Bill of Rights.
- You will immediately cease the practice of “unpaid internships”, and will remunerate all unpaid interns you have hired for the past five years for their labor at a rate of $35 an hour.
- You will freely allow your engineers and other hired professionals to unionize and collectively bargain for greater pay, reduced work hours, more vacation time, and more benefits.
If you find these terms unacceptable, we have nothing further to discuss and you can go straight to hell.“
