Steaming Load of the Week Award: Brit Korrectniks Paint A Bull’s-Eye on Free Speech

Steaming Load: Brit Korrectniks Paint A Bull’s-Eye on Free Speech

Despite inhabiting Earth for 67 years, Christian Pauline Howe, was still unprepared for the antics she witnessed at a local GLAAD BAAG Pride prance-a-thon. Horrified by the experience, our heroine sat down and wrote a impassioned letter to the Elected Tormentors on the Norwich City Council. It was, as things turned out, a reality check which made a strong impression on the Norwich nitwits:

She fired off a letter to the council describing the march as a 'public display of indecency' that was 'offensive to God'.

She wrote: 'It is shameful that this small but vociferous lobby should be allowed such a display unwarranted by the minimal number of homosexuals.'

The letter went on to describe homosexuals as 'sodomites', said homosexuality had 'contributed to the downfall of every empire' and added that 'gay sex was a major cause of sexually transmitted infections'. (Daily Mail)

Did the local council pay attention? You better believe it, Sparky:

[Our heroine] received a response from the council's deputy chief executive, Bridget Buttinger, who said it was the local authority's "duty... to eliminate discrimination of all kinds. The content of your letter has been assessed as potentially being hate related because of the views you expressed towards people of a certain sexual orientation. Your details and details of the contents of your letter have been recorded as such and passed to the police."

The two police officers later turned up at her home in Poringland, near Norwich, and informed her the contents of her letter had caused offence.

That’s right, PIGsters, for exercising her free speech birthright to express her moral objections to GLAAD BAAG fun and games, Christian was put on a ‘hate crimes’ watch list and given a tongue lashing by a pair of Korrectnik badge packers. Ironically, while the Norwich (in)justice system defends their heavy-handed antics, Christian Howe is getting some support from a GLAAD BAAG equality group, Stonewall, who deemed the Norwich response ‘Disproportionate’.

In this case, the principle is much more important than the particulars. Christian Howe’s only crime is daring to express her heartfelt opinion. She didn’t make any threats, she just gave the local council a piece of her mind. That might not be popular in Korrectnik infested J.O.E., but, whether the Korrectniks like it or not, it is - as Christian would insist - her God-given birthright.

As a sovereign individual, I am not compelled to agree with Christian’s opinion. I am, however, required to support her inherent right to express her heartfelt opinions, without unwarranted, Nanny State, interference.
