Political correctness and open borders

Posted by jonjayray on Friday, 01 July 2005 03:12.

Memories of slavery and Jim Crow make a sane discussion of illegal immigration likely to fall victim to cries of “racism”

“Recently, a remarkable op ed piece was written in my local paper about political correctness. The author was Andrew Oldenquist, professor emeritus in Philosophy for Ohio State University. Although I disagree with Dr. Oldenquist on many subjects, his comments on politically correctness were so wise and clear that they approached what rationalist philosopher Descartes called “intuitions of pure reason.”

Oldenquist began by pointing out that Germans are the most politically correct people in the world. Traumatic memories about the Nazis have impelled the Germans to fashion a set of politically correct rules against any word or deed that is reminiscent of the something the Nazis said or did. German law allows unrestricted abortion on demand of babies that are healthy and normal. However, the abortion of a radically deformed baby is forbidden because the Nazis practiced euthanasia and disposed of deformed children. Germans are embarrassed by patriotism and nationalism because Hitler abused patriotism and nationalism.

A British newspaper nearly wakes up

Posted by Guessedworker on Sunday, 19 June 2005 02:53.

Today’s Sunday Telegraph reports upon the corruption race politics have wrought to London’s Metropolitan Police Service.

Scotland Yard failed to investigate fully an allegation by a white woman of a rape involving an officer from an ethnic minority because of concerns that it would be accused of racism ...

At an industrial tribunal last week, the Commissioner Sir Ian Blair faced accusations of “politically correct meddling” in a disciplinary case involving white officers. He was said to have been keen to make examples of the officers, who faced charges of racist behaviour, even though an inquiry had already cleared them.

That charge is overshadowed by the latest unprecedented revelation, however, which demonstrates the extraordinary lengths to which the Metropolitan Police is prepared to go to accommodate officers from ethnic minorities.

The rape complaint, which the force has attempted to keep secret for four years, was considered so sensitive that Sir Ian, then Deputy Commissioner, oversaw the inquiry himself ...

The failure to question the officer because of the sensitivity over his race was confirmed by several sources. One said: “Scotland Yard was treading on eggshells with this and the feeling at the top level was that even putting the rape to this man would be too much.”

The woman, who cannot be identified, said: “Due process has not been served. This man, who is now a serving officer, was party to my rape.”

Scotland Yard said that the allegation had been “thoroughly investigated”. While awaiting their response, a man identifying himself as the officer’s solicitor called the offices of The Sunday Telegraph in a state of agitation. Attempts to contact him subsequently failed, but Scotland Yard admitted that after this newspaper’s inquiry, it contacted the officer. “We have a duty of care to him,” said a spokesman, who declined to comment on the duty of care to the alleged rape victim.

This repellant situation is a child of The Lawrence Enquiry.  Met Commissioner Sir Ian Blair denies he is only there to drive political correctness into his white officers.  But who believes that?  Not the un-named (alleged) victim in this case.  Not many of Sir Ian’s white officers, I suspect.

But there are at least some green shoots in the actions of the Sunday Telegraph, specifically its reversion to normal reporting standards.  This is a mighty step forward from its, of course, intentional silence on the racist murder of young Kriss Donald in Glasgow by a group of local Muslims.

There is still a gap to close here.  Justice is not “justice for the racially oppressed”, even if Sir Ian thinks so, and should never be reported as such.


A victory for Hoppe

Posted by Guessedworker on Thursday, 14 April 2005 18:31.

I have long regarded the political correctness movement as a threat to all independent thought, and I am deeply concerned about the level of self-censorship in academia. To counteract this tendency, I have left no political taboo untouched in my teaching. I believed that America was still free enough for this to be possible, and I assumed that my relative prominence offered me some extra protection.

When I became a victim of the thought police, I was genuinely surprised, and now I am afraid that my case has had a chilling effect on less established academics. Still, it is my hope that my fight and ultimate victory, even if they can not make a timid man brave, do encourage those with a fighting spirit to take up the cudgels.

If I made one mistake, it was that I was too cooperative and waited too long to go on the offensive.

The closing words of a statement by Hans-Hermann Hoppe, professor of economics at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, following his victory over a UNLV “commissar”.

Hoppe had been persecuted through the disciplinary machinery of the university for an entire year by this individual.  His sin was having twice failed, while lecturing, to take account of the feelings of a homosexual student.

The academic world - or that part of it that cares more for academic freedom than political correctness - rode to Hoppe’s defence.  UNLV was presented with a public relations disaster and, with some reluctance it seems, was finally forced to back down.


U.S. politicians entrench themselves

Posted by jonjayray on Tuesday, 08 March 2005 17:18.

The war on free speech continues in Congress. The crew that did its darndest to repeal the First Amendment back in 2002—Sens. John McCain and Russ Feingold and Reps. Chris Shays and Marty Meehan - is back, and now its looking to clean up the mess left by the Bipartisan Campaign Finance Reform Act.  That mess: insidious “527” groups, like MoveOn.org’s Media Fund and the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, of course.

The British Inquisition

Posted by jonjayray on Thursday, 24 February 2005 18:57.

This afternoon, I attended a meeting called by organisations supporting the government’s proposed new law against incitement to religious hatred, which I believe threatens to suppress legitimate debate and criminalise people for simply telling the truth. Lined up in support of this bill were the Commission for Racial Equality, the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO), Justice, the British Humanist Association and the Muslim Council of Britain (MCB). Interestingly, they were very much on the defensive, as they felt that the attack on the bill, mounted by the comedian Rowan Atkinson and many others on the grounds that it would criminalise legitimate speech, had already done serious damage to the government’s case.

Free speech a low priority at college

Posted by jonjayray on Tuesday, 22 February 2005 16:00.

“Write about free speech on American college campuses occasionally, and you quickly come to realize that a good many people honor the concept mostly in the breach. Every column defending free expression generates a number of emails with this basic message: Of course I support free speech, I just don’t think someone should be allowed to say that.

Real tolerance being strangled

Posted by jonjayray on Saturday, 01 January 2005 19:01.

On the 18th of this month, 1,000 enraged Sikhs stormed the Birmingham Repertory Theatre, throwing eggs, smashing windows, injuring three police officers, attempting to climb onto the stage, and successfully halting the production after it had played for 20 minutes. “Behzti,” Punjabi for “dishonor,” had aroused the mob’s ire because the playwright, Gurpreet Kaur Bhatti, had placed its rape scene in a Sikh temple. Ms. Bhatti, herself a British-born Sikh, had resisted local pressure to move the incendiary action to a religiously neutral setting like a community center.
