I get reaaaaallllyyy angry sometimes at the stereo types of my generation, and in particular at the hidden oppression and inequalities of what I like to call PC-McCarthyism, so the time has come to share it with you.
A friend of mine got 450% abused and dismissed recently for suggesting that factors other than global warming may be affecting the climate change - this is so typical of PC-McCarthyism. The general PC view becomes sacred and any valid argument outside of this is slated. People need to get back to Socrates' philosophy of knowing nothing.
Then there's British police taking a racial case against Channel 4 for broadcasting the Undercover Mosque programme - which showed undercover muslims preaching about jewish pigs, women having half the intelligence of men, ok to marry 9 yr old girls, right and honour to commit jihad, etc. More classic PC-McCarthyism, attacking the messenger. In the West we are now living in a former-oppressed-minority-ocracy. The former oppressed minorities can get away with so much more than any other minority or majority social group.
Then at same time earlier this year we had the celebrity big brother fiasco. What was highlighted at the time, and actually admitted to publicly by the channel 4 boss, was that bullying a different nationality is worse than bullying someone for other reasons. Big Brother has had bullying in every series. BB 2006 had someone ostricised by 14 housemates and leave - but nothing was ever said. Add in the possibility that race may be a factor and its an international political scandal. This to me is totally wrong. Why should racial abuse be more important than any other abuse?
Then there's the Brian Ferry episode. By expressing admiration for Nazi art he was lambasted as a Nazi lover. It is possible to separate out the good and bad actions of a person or entity.
And then there's the holocaust law. This seems to be the first EU legally enforced belief and naturally it supports PC-McCarthyism. Will I get called up in front of the next McCarthy if I state that 5.9m and not 6m jews died in WW2?
PC morality evolved from Christian morality, and like Christianity, both have extremes and the extremes of PC inequality are surfacing with greater frequency.
This is my official stance.
I'm taking genuine utopian equality back.
