    On a trip I just got back from. One was to read an article about a rabbi who has fought fascism most of his life. A very wise man so it seems, and one you may ever meet. He had the rare gift of original thought; like myself.

    He was adamant fascism was not a political creed but a deeply imbued standard of behaviour. In other words, if you treat your fellow man in a fascistic way, that makes you a one. And he insisted there were four pillars of this behaviour.

    One was a total and blind commitment to the current political and moral orthodoxy. The second was angry reputation of any possibility of variant thought. He concluded this blinked bigotry was seldom the standard of the truly evil, but out of the deeply stupid.

    At number three he listed a relentless no-mercy persecution of those refusing or unable to conform to the imposed orthodoxy often steaming from the anonymous denunciation and presaged by there intimidating phrase "we have received a complaint that you......." the final criterion of fascistic behaviour is the demand for total controle of thought, speech writting- even body language and gesture. looking around at the persecution often at staggering public expense and on the basis of anonymous denunciation of harmless Christians and others, I am struck by this. The rabbi's four criteria of practising fascism are absolutly identical to the tenets of political correctness. which is why I am convinced that PC is indeed the new fascism that scares our age and country. And let us never forget that fascism is the child of socialism and bigotry of the left, nothing to do with conservatism.

    I don't know how many times over the past 30 years i have seen political correctness used as a weapon to attract, repress, and abuse. I have never liked it, or thought it a good thing. It has never been a replacement for manners. But it is a weapon to repress free speech.

    Ministers in Britten cave into political correctness. Hans Christain Raabe a GP and practising Christain is sacked from the Advisory counsel on the Misuse of drugs for saying in a document unrelated to his responsibilities that some 25 percent of pedophiles are homosexual. The mere suggestion that a man might pray on little boys, is so revolutionary and offensive to tot he homosexual lobby that meryl recognising the fact renders in their eyes and sadly in the eyes of the British Government they appear to have enslaved Dr Raabe unfit for public duties.

    This is not political correctness gone mad, it's madness it's self. First if 25% are pedophiles are homosexual then by definition 75% of us are not.

    What I am offended about is the fact once agin us pure homosexuals, the real gays Pink Salmon Gay if you like, are taking on the sins of our half brothers the bisexuals, who sins are put under the banner of gay and not bi. So if we did not get the blame for their sins, this may well only be 7% of homosexuals are homosexual, and the rest belong to our half brothers the bisexuals.
