An excellent example of why we can no longer make jokes of logical extremes. It is well on the way to becoming a hate crime for a straight person to refuse to have a sexual relationship with a ‘trans’ person.

About Vlad Tepes Blog
Agenda and view:
This statement may be updated from time to time as circumstances change. But the principles will not.
There are a few things that need to be made clear from the outset. Things which I and others here have stated repeatedly but can get lost as articles vanish down the blog and into the past. However some of these ideas are the template around which other posts are made and therefore it is important that this site and its articles are viewed with these principles in mind. If nothing else, it can solidify either your support for, or your contempt of this blog and its authors but at least it will be for what we actually stand for and believe as opposed to what others may imagine and impugn it to be.
The first thing I feel needs clarification is our attitude towards Islam. I need to be as clear about this as humanly possible.
Islam is a religious political and cultural system. Its no more deserving of protection than that of Nazism or Communism with which, by the way, it shares a great deal. Islam is not a race and therefore criticism of it is not racist.
No more than pointing out that the hate Islam preaches and the hateful actions taken in the name of Islam are themselves hate speech. It is merely stating the facts as even the Muslim aggressors state them.
The media in Canada, including some radio stations which typically are not of politically correct views, have become so careful in the manner in which they report actual news that it has become understood that if a crime is committed by a black person, the listener will infer it as no description is given of a suspect at large other than gender. If the person is Islamic the listener will infer it as no name is given of a suspect or a person who has been arrested for the crime. In my opinion this does more harm to group relations than if all groups are treated equally. A seething contempt is the usual result of treating a group as if it’s special before the law.
Let me put this more simply. The media has become so afraid of charges from both governments and various activist groups, mostly Islamic ones that they no longer even report actual news.
One of the reasons I decided to go forth with this blog is a fear I have had for a very long time. The fact that since Multiculturalism as an idea was advanced into actual policy, political correctness of the type I list above will result in a newly revived extreme and irrational right wing movement which will gain popular support as governments drift farther and farther from representing the peoples of western nations, their values, and their views. Of course this will be, as historically it always is, a case of the cure bieng worse than the disease.
Recently as I write this, Mark Steyn and many other journalists bloggers and free people of the western world find themselves in legal trouble for merely reporting what Muslims say about their own faith and agendas and reporting the actions of Muslims around the world as part of the ideology and teachings of Islam. This seems to indicate that the greater crime is actually pointing out the hateful actions of others more so than the actions themselves.
Governments probably accidentally but even so, have now created a system where the process is the punishment. That is to say, while in for example Canada, we still have a kind of freedom of speech, if you publish something that any given group dislikes, (of course this has to be an in fashion group or perceived to be victims) then they are subjected to a process which is punitively expensive and time consuming and likely will destroy you financially or with the ‘scarlet letter’ of racism etc. I refer you to the various Human Rights Commissions of Canada and its provinces as one excellent example.
I would call this a recipe for cultural suicide.
So to be clear, I am using a freedom not granted to me in law, but I take as a natural right to defend myself my values my culture and the history of my people, my cultural heritage as a native born in a western land for classical education, reason, logic open debate and reasoned discourse on the nature of people; religion; and culture and mostly the relationship between Government and its citizens. This brings me to my second issue for this blog.
Irrational Leftism and its offspring, political correctness and moral and cultural relativism.
The greater threat to Classical civilisation is that of irrational leftism. Moral relativism, a subset of modern leftism is a kind of intellectual slight of hand which makes it seem very clever to equate terrorism for example, with military actions designed to achieve the greatest military objectives with the least damage and death possible.
I would like to borrow a rhetorical device from Sam Harris author of End of Faith which deals with this well:
‘Imagine you have the perfect weapon. One which would do exactly as little or as much damage as you would want it to. One which could isolate a single person or building or take out an entire city or nation by whichever means you choose. Now give that weapon to a Muslim leader or Islamic state, The United States, Israel, anyone you can think of and ask yourself honestly, how would these weapons be used?’
This is merely one example and I have attached an essay here which I think explains this issue very well. I would invite all to download it and read it as it may be the best thing written on this issue despite its rough translation from Dutch to English. It is a speech given at the memorial for a murdered Dutch Politician named ‘Pim Fortyne’
Also, The article by Fjordman about the anti democratic EU is a must read for a clear understanding of the agenda of the politically correct.

I add this as I am attempting to explain if not resolve an ethical dilemma.
There are many posts here I have taken from news sites and often other blogs. It seems as if the courteous thing to do is to use a paragraph or two and a link to the source page. While I do this at times I more typically copy the entire post to vladtepesblog with a link back to the original place as prominently as I can and often with a clear sentence stating where its from. The reason I have chosen to do this, is that the concerns I raise on this blog are real. Articles disappear because of pressure from leftist or Islamic groups. Videos frequently vanish so I try and have them stream from here often instead of merely embed the code. We saw what happened to Fitna and Liveleak.com. vladtepesblog was one of very few blogs that still had it available for quite some time.
In essence, in no way am i trying to remove anything from the original authors when its not from one of Vlad’s original people. I merely wish to make sure that there is at least an alternate site where things can be seen heard and read in order to make it that little bit more difficult for enemies of free speech
Thank you for reading this and visiting our blog. I hope this explains our position well.
I may edit this from time to time for greater lucidity of the principles involved but not the premise.

Posted by Eeyore I have been reluctant to post much on the HK protests because something didn’t seem at all right about how they were going. It didn’t make sense.
