Turning Heterosexual Children into Criminals

We may in fact be actually living through a transition from democracy to a police state. It may be happening incrementally, but it is happening nonetheless.

It seems every month I am forced to do another story on how the gaystapo are terrorising the West, forcing everyone to submit to their agenda of radical social engineering. Increasingly they are co-opting the courts and legislatures to enforce their demands.

And the totalitarian demands of the militant homosexual activists will certainly not stop with unwilling adults. It seems that every single boy and girl as well will be forced to embrace the homosexual agenda, or face the strictest of consequences.

Consider this incredible story from PinkNews, “Europe’s largest gay news service”, involving a 10-year-old English school boy who is in big trouble. What was the horrific crime which this boy has been found guilty of? It is quite ghastly indeed. He actually dared to call a fellow student a “gay boy”.

Wow, throw the book at him. Expel him from the school immediately and never let him return to school or hold a job for life. In fact, he deserves to have the letters ‘PI’ branded on his for forehead for such gross ‘Political Incorrectness’.

This is how the UK arm of PinkNews covers the story. It is worth presenting a large portion of the story here:

A ten-year-old boy has been placed on a hate register for calling a fellow pupil a ‘gay boy.’

It is one of the first publicised examples of how the government’s required hate registers are being used in schools. From this September, children as young as five risk being placed on a hate register if they make homophobic playground taunts.

The details of how hate registers are being used emerged after the mother of a ten-year-old boy in Weston-super-Mare, Somerset, was told that her son’s name would be placed on a register and permanent school record following an alleged homophobic comment to a fellow pupil. Last December, PinkNews.co.uk reported that the government has asked all schools to record incidents of homophobic bullying.

It has been alleged that ten-year-old Peter Drury called another pupil a “gay boy” outside of school, but the mother of another child reported the incident to the head teacher of Ashcombe Primary School.

Penny Drury told the Daily Mail: “He doesn’t even understand about the birds and the bees, so how can he be homophobic?

“Peter is a very naive boy who didn’t know what he was doing and is now very upset as he is now in trouble. It doesn’t mean he is going to turn into a homophobic attacker when he is older.

“He must have picked up the word from somewhere and thought it to mean stupid.

“If I heard it I would have been the first to correct him and tell him not to use it, but putting him on a register seems way over the top.”

The boy’s parents asked the school if they would remove him from the register, but said the school’s head teacher refused.

Mrs Drury told the Daily Mail: “I’m now worried if this is going to affect him applying for universities in the future. I just think the whole thing would be better sorted out by the teacher or parent explaining to them that their language is wrong and not to do it again.”

Children’s charities have expressed concern that school pupils could be effectively being criminalised for playground banter. Michele Elliott of Kidscape told the Daily Express:” Children are being criminalised and singled out from a very early age when they don’t know what they’re doing.”

Well, what can I say? I am left utterly dumbfounded and gobsmacked by all this insanity. It certainly comes as a shock to those of us who have grown up in free and democratic societies. However, such stories would of course be all too familiar to those who have lived in totalitarian police states.

And people who have read such prophetic novels as 1984 and Brave New World would certainly recognise what is going on here. That is what makes all this so much more incredulous. We are witnessing with our very eyes the slow but steady erosion of democratic freedoms in the West. We may in fact be actually living through a transition from democracy to a police state. It may be happening incrementally, but it is happening nonetheless.

English commentator Melanie Phillips said something quite profound in one of her recent articles and it is worth mentioning here: “The great battles today are not between left and right. They are between morality and nihilism, truth and lies, justice and injustice, freedom and totalitarianism, and Judeo-Christian values and the would-be destroyers of the West both within and without.”

Exactly right. And if stories like the one described above do not stir us all to action, then those battles may be decided a lot more quickly than we might otherwise expect.
