One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life (Psalm 27:4)                 Bayith Ministries

Political Correctness: Index


"It's a very odd situation in the year 2020 that we in Britain (and the West) are having to defend free-speech.
And it's not just the war on free-speech that is so strange - it's the fact that the Establishment is trying its hardest to replace free-speech with Soviet-style 'government-approved speech'. This is the most dangerous and pernicious political development of our lifetime, because a country without free-speech is on the road to serfdom. This is why we must resist" [comment at source].



Hearts of Oak


Hearts of Oak


"The UK political establishment narrows and controls the Overton window of political debate; imposes its 'progressive' values and intolerant left-liberal orthodoxy with the self-righteous fervour of 16th century Puritans; and silences and oppresses the population via state-enforced political correctness, hate speech, thought police, blasphemy laws, cancelling, deplatforming, censorship, shaming and other Orwellian techniques.  The Hearts of Oak aim is to initiate sustainable public and non-public activities towards the common goals of reversing the current restrictions on free speech through education and activism, both at grassroots and online..."

Anyone who feels their speech rights are under threat, or who cares about free speech as an issue, is welcome to join ... We will come to your defence if you find yourself under attack for exercising your legal right to free speech, whether by the courts or the police, by your employers, by colleagues or activists, or by outrage mobs on social media and elsewhere."




Other Articles on Freedom of Speech


Letter: What Is Free Speech?  (03 March 2020)


"Dear Sir, What is free speech? In Britain, unlike America, we do not seem quite sure because we do not have a Bill of Rights. Zoe Strimple, writing in [The Telegraph] yesterday, said 'The cause of free speech, newly prominent, now offers an easy way for thugs to try to get away with it.'  I think this approach to free speech is utterly wrong and misguided. Who defines what is thuggish or who is a thug? A thug cannot just be a working-class person with a Yorkshire accent or a middle-class person saying things that you disagree with. A non-violent 'thug' should have the same free speech rights as someone deemed by the establishment to be 'respectable'. Free speech cannot be defined by class; middle-class dinner party types being acceptable whilst everyone else is a 'gammon', or some equally derogatory word..."


Newspeak Dictionary: EU Parliament Warns Against Words Like 'Mankind', 'Manpower'  (30 December 2018)

"The EU Parliament has issued politically correct guidance against using words like 'mankind' and 'man-made' in order to infuse its everyday language with social justice ... 'Language powerfully reflects and influences attitudes, behaviour and perceptions' [the guidance states] - a view seemingly underpinned by the same philosophical outlook as the fictional Newspeak Dictionary in Goerge Orwell's seminal book 1984..."  /  Reader's comment:  "It is our duty to keep using words that are 'unapproved'. Chairman, workman, businessman, dinner lady, actress, Christian name, mother and father, manly, womanly, and so on and so forth. When pulled up on it at any point, it must be reinforced that you are not apologetic, not 'behind the times', but purposefully using the language ... Enough is enough."


Let's Make Free Speech the Great Cause of 2019  (26 December 2018)

"Who would have thought that in 2018 it would be deemed controversial to uphold the principle of free speech? Whatever else the events of this year have taught us, it is now clear that the fundamental human right to express oneself as one sees fit is under threat. With both major political parties supporting further hate-speech legislation and varying degrees of press regulation, and with Silicon Valley tech giants routinely censoring their users, the time is ripe seriously to consider how we might retaliate against the creeping authoritarianism of our age..."


Fight Back Against this Attack on Free Speech for Teachers  (29 May 2018)

It should never be a requirement that a person must agree with a particular law or idea in any circumstance. One of the fundamental purposes of freedom of speech is that all citizens are allowed to freely debate and discuss any laws, ideas, theories and literature. Freedom of speech should be allowed for teachers ... If it were a requirement to agree with any or all existing laws, Parliament would grind to a halt as MPs could not debate or amend any existing laws..."


The New Dark Age of Intolerance  (30 September 2017)

"The great French writer Voltaire famously said: 'I disapprove of what you say and would defend to the death your right to say it.'  In this way, he encapsulated what it meant to be an enlightened human being - someone prepared to consider all points of view. But in recent years the principle of freedom of speech, sacred since Voltaire's 18th century, has been lost, and this is surely one of the most sinister features of our times. It is as if we are entering a new Dark Age of Intolerance..."


Of Course Bahar Mustafa Should Have Been Arrested For Her #KillAllWhiteMen Antics  (06 October 2015)

"The rule of law is one of the most, if not the most fundamental, concept[s] in Western civilisation, and therefore in conservatism too. ... I do not believe that by acting 'magnanimously' towards the left over Bahar Mustafa's arrest for tweeting '#KillAllWhiteMen' we are going to win the debate, and win the day for free speech. The left simply does not have the intellectual capacity for that..."

Liberty GB Radio Host Charged With 'Hate Crime' for Criticising Fiyaz Mughal  (01 January 2014)

"Jihadists, paedophile rapists and seditious preachers sleep easy in their beds in modern Britain, but we can take comfort from the fact that police forces are diligent in hunting down people who say hurtful things about members of that topmost protected species, the 'Muslim community'. Whilst their more extreme elements may gang-rape little English girls, batter women senseless or threaten to behead those who insult Islam, such petty misdemeanours rarely drag the rozzers away from their computers, where more pressing matters demand attention. Nothing can distract our doughty boys-in-blue as, hunched before flickering screens, they endlessly trawl Facebook and Twitter for the crime that really concerns their political masters: the unforgiveable crime of criticising Islam..."

Ding Dong the Witch is Dead!  (12 April 2013)

"The BBC should allow the song Ding Dong the Witch is Dead to be played in its regular charts show if enough people vote to have it featured.

His crime?..."

Anti-Fascists Are Killing Free Speech  (01 October 2012)

"Activists who call on the state to arrest and imprison 'fascists' for their speech crimes should look up irony in the dictionary. ... Are Britain's anti-fascist groups so blinkered, so convinced that the state is on their side and that they are the bearers of the Truth, that they can make statements celebrating the curbing of someone's free speech without even the slightest twinge of irony?..."

U.S. on Wrong Side of Cairo Embassy Riot  (11 September 2012)

"As the restless, masked throngs gathered outside the walls yesterday, U.S. Embassy officials issued a statement surrendering America's unapologetic defense of free speech. ...

Yes, your government just established the first limit on free speech we have ever known..."

Europe's Auto-Immune Disease  (17 April 2012)

"In decadent Europe, freedom of speech is dying.

Jailings for Racism on Twitter? Britain's Forgotten Fight for Free Speech  (29 March 2012)

"In 1742, David Hume could write, 'Nothing is more apt to surprise a foreigner, than the extreme liberty, which we enjoy in this country, of communicating whatever we please to the public, and of openly censuring every measure, entered into by the king or his ministers.'

The Frankfurt School

"The Frankfurt School believed that as long as an individual had the belief - or even the hope of belief - that his divine gift of reason could solve the problems facing society, then that society would never reach the state of hopelessness and alienation that they considered necessary to provoke socialist revolution.

Their task, therefore, was as swiftly as possible to undermine the Judaeo-Christian legacy. To do this they called for the most negative destructive criticism possible of every sphere of life which would be designed to de-stabilize society and bring down what they saw as the 'oppressive' order. Their policies, they hoped, would spread like a virus - 'continuing the work of Western Marxists by other means' as one of their members noted.

To further the advance of their 'quiet' cultural revolution ... the [Frankfurt] School recommended (among other things):

(1) the creation of racism offences,
(2) continual change to create confusion,
(3) the teaching of sex and homosexuality to children,
(4) the undermining of schools' and teachers' authority,
(5) huge immigration to destroy identity,
(6) the promotion of excessive drinking,
(7) emptying of churches,
(8) an unreliable legal system with bias against victims of crime,
(9) dependency on the state or state benefits,
(10) control and dumbing down of media,
(11) encouraging the breakdown of the family.

One of the main ideas of the Frankfurt School was to exploit Freud's idea of 'pansexualism' - the search for pleasure, the exploitation of the differences between the sexes, the overthrowing of traditional relationships between men and women. To further their aims they would:

(a) attack the authority of the father, deny the specific roles of father and mother, and wrest away from families their rights as primary educators of their children,
(b) abolish differences in the education of boys and girls,
(c) abolish all forms of male dominance - hence the presence of women in the armed forces,
(d) declare women to be an 'oppressed class' and men as 'oppressors'."


Programmes of Treason

"There are eight levels of control that must be obtained before you are able to create a social state:

  • Healthcare - Control healthcare and you control the people;

  • Poverty - Increase the Poverty level as high as possible, poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing everything for them to live;

  • Debt - Increase the debt to an unsustainable level. That wa6y you are able to increase taxes, and this will produce more poverty;

  • Gun Control - Remove the ability to defend themselves from the Government. That way you are able to create a police state;

  • Welfare - Take control of every aspect of their lives (Food, Housing, and Income);

  • Education - Take control of that people read and listen to - take control of what children learn in school;

  • Religion - Remove the belief in God from the Government and schools;

  • Class Warfare - Divide the people into the wealthy and the poor. This will cause more discontent and it will be easier to take from (tax) the wealthy with the support of the poor" [source].
