Do these people never rest in their assault on society? How to stop these evil muvvers? Two snippets at the same time in a similar vein. Firstly via Lord Somber:
Britain’s High-Tech Thought Police: British authorities target bloggers, tweeters, and t-shirt wearers for speech crimes. Now, the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS), the body responsible for prosecuting crimes in England and Wales, is holding a series of meetings to clarify the law on tweetcrimes and FB misdemeanors, and to decide when it is legit, and when it isn’t, to bring criminal charges for trolling or inflammatory speech online.
Then from Moonbattery, via Chuckles:
The “Proud Schools” pilot program, implemented in 12 government schools in Sydney and the Hunter [Region], is designed to stamp out “homophobia, transphobia (fear of transsexuals) and heterosexism”. …
The program defines “heterosexism” as the practice of “positioning heterosexuality as the norm for human relationship,” according to the Proud Schools Consultation Report. …
The program should “focus on [reversing] the dominance of heterosexism rather than on homophobia,” according to the minutes from the Proud Schools steering committee on March 22, 2011.
That makes me more angry than I can actually convey in words here. This is why I give such short shrift to PCist left-liberals. Have they given the slightest consideration to the damage they are doing to children? Where are the gatekeepers, the ones who used to keep such riff-raff out? It appears the shepherds have joined the wolves.
What chance do kids have?
