The Telegraph reports this morning that “more than 200 leading writers” have denounced Russia’s law against “gay propaganda”–over here we call it “television” or “public education”–and blasphemy ( http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/russia/10620893/More-than-200-leading-writers-protest-against-Russia’s-anti-gay-and-blasphemy-laws.html ).
What writers? The usual gang of idiots–Serious Mainstream Literature stuffed shirts who couldn’t tell a proper story if their lives depended on it.
They say that a law against trying to convince children that homosexuality is good, and a law against blasphemy, are “a threat to freedom.” Well, yeah, I guess an anti-blasphemy law might restrict some precious nitwit’s “liberty” to utter blasphemy–this from the same left-wing academic thought police who want to string you up if you dare say a single world that isn’t Politically Correct, and duly reverent of certain cherished Minorities. You have a “liberty” to offend people who believe in God, but if you say anything that makes a “gay” or a lesbian or a feminist “uncomfortable”–well, you’ve had it.
Whose freedom, nowadays, is being threatened, by the way?
Every day there’s a news report of some arm of the government, somewhere, coming down like a sledge-hammer on some little, ordinary person who made the fatal mistake of not jumping when a lesbian said “jump.” According to the practice of government and the passion of our ruling class, “gays” have been made superior to regular people: they are to be appeased at all times, and never crossed. Woe betide you if you do!
Well, this writer ain’t buyin’ it.
