Having observed the craven tactics of the bullying, politically correct Left for yonks now, I'm still astonished at their gall. I look at them and think: Hell, everyone knows how malicious and tiny-minded these people are. Doesn't the fact that the vast majority of people (even many who purport to share their views) despise them utterly bother them even a little bit. I mean, wouldn't they want to be respected -- liked, even -- and not just feared?
But nup. Respect, affection don't matter at all -- or at least not enough. The reason they are so fond of instilling fear is because it works. It gets them what they want: power over others. And that's all they're after in the end.
Latest scalp: Professor Kuruvilla George. He's quit his position with the VHREOC, even though the Victorian Government said he had no case to answer:
Deputy Premier Peter Ryan says Professor George is not at fault and as far as the Government is concerned, the matter is closed.
"He's made his statements on a private basis, he's made them in that capacity," Mr Ryan said.
"He was not speaking on behalf of the Commission. It's a point of view that he has expressed privately."
But of course the VHREOC don't respect privacy. That's anathema to their primitive, collectivist "thinking". They continued to kick up a stink and created such a hostile atmosphere that the highly qualified psychiatrist ended up resigning from the commission.
Human rights my arse! What about the basic human right to hold your own opinion?
Well, they've certainly got what they wanted: complete, obedient conformity from all members. Anyone still on the board who holds eeevil conservative views on marriage -- views that are not only held by the majority of Australians, but are still enshrined in law! -- will clearly be too frightened to express them to anyone but their closest friends.
Well done, Victorian thought police. You've carried out a very efficient purge. Joseph Stalin would be proud.
