The new fascism

Where will the next fascism arise? Answer: it's already rising fast, in the modern "liberal" west. Under the guise of "liberalism" and "human rights", fascism is making astonishingly rapid advances.

Here's a case in point, from Canada. There, human rights commissions have been awarded extraordinarily broad powers to look into just about whatever they please and dispense pretty much arbitrary punishments. Their courts lack many of the usual legal safeguards, rules of evidence, due process, etcetera, and are generally staffed as regards the prosecution and judge by the most rabid of "liberal" activists.

Mr Boissoin, a Christian pastor, wrote to a local newspaper, saying that "Children as young as five and six years of age are being subjected to pyschologically and physiologically damaging pro-homosexual literature and guidance in the public school system; all under the fraudulent guise of equal rights."

Cue the fascist homosexual activist, who complained to the human rights commission that his feelings were hurt by having to read this - and the commission duly summoned, tried and convicted the pastor with a fine of $2000 for costs and $5000 to be paid to the poor hurt activist. The kangaroo court further told him that he was forbidden to post any disagreeable remarks about homosexuality ever again in newspapers, on the radio, in public speech or even in private letters or e-mails.

Make no mistake - this is undiluted fascism. The man has expressed an opinion which the state finds unacceptable and wishes to forbid. The state has taken on the right to suppress all such unwelcome opinions and to harshly punish those who hold them. Just because it's being done in the name of "liberalism" and "minority rights" doesn't make change its nature.
