In the 1930s, Hitler shook the world with his “Final Solution” to the problem of the Jews. This was a euphemism for the extermination of millions of Jewish people. Label them “non-people” then you have no need for moral restraint, they are not human; they are a blight.
In the 1960s, the American south exploded as black men and women fought for equal rights among the white population. They had been classed as non-human; therefore, it made sense to have different schools, churches, drinking fountains and more.
Throughout the 20th century, overflowing into the 21st century, some group or other has been pushing for another group to have their human status removed. Tragically, this affects 100,000 babies every year in Canada alone.
But the battle has entered a new era.
Recently, coming across my desk was a letter written by CHP candidate Jim Enos (Hamilton Mountain) and I believe it not only provides an excellent example of what can be done but also how to approach and address controversial issues. For that reason I share it with you and thank Mr. Enos for taking the time to build his arguments while at the same time showing respect for those on both sides of the issue.
Jim is writing about the rebirth of the ‘Bathroom Bill’ (gender identity) and it is addressed to our Justice Minister Robert Nicholson.
“Dear Minister Nicholson
I am taking some time to write you regarding the concerning impact that Bill C-279 (formerly C-389) will have on Canada’s current and future generations. On the surface, Bill C-279 seems to be a noble gesture to provide special protections for a self-identified group of persons who find themselves suffering from the painful pathology of gender-identity confusion.
I agree that gender identity confusion is painful and warrants a compassionate response, thus my rejection of Bill C-279 is not a rejection of those who bear such pain, rather it is of those who choose to drive legislation and social policy on the false premise that gender identity is normative.
First and foremost is the question, Does any self-identified group require special protections legislation in Canada? The answer is no. All Canadian citizens are offered protection under Canadian law based on their personhood regardless of their beliefs or feelings. Offering special protections for one self-identified group results in inequality for all other Canadians.”
Canada has been divided into groups that should have ‘special protection’ and those who don’t deserve special protection…. You know the ones who aren’t quite equal. The ones we can denigrate and persecute without fear of prosecution. After all, they think differently, they act differently, they’re not the same. From there, it’s an easy jump to… they’re not quite human.
We’ve seen it before.
Sadly, as written about in last week’s Communiqué, there are those who are so bent on changing culture that they will dismantle protections put in place for the good of all of society; for the good of all Canadians.
But what is the easily arrived at conclusion of special rights?
According to this LifeSiteNews article:
QUEBEC, June 18, 2012– In what they are touting as a “world first,” a Quebec homosexual activist group has launched a “registry of homophobic acts” with support and funding from the Quebec Government’s Justice Department. Standing alongside Montreal Police Chief Johanne Paquin and Commander Alain Gagnon, the leadership of the group Gai Ecoute launched the anonymous tipster registry at a press conference today.
Included in the definition of actions classified as “homophobic” and deemed worthy of reporting to the registry are: “any negative word or act toward a homosexual or homosexuality in general: physical abuse, verbal abuse, intimidation, harassment, offensive graffiti, abuse, injurious mockery, inappropriate media coverage and discrimination.”
Consider your name, on that registry. This is along the lines of the sex registry for sexual offenders but… it’s your name on it.
What vile crime would you have to commit to get your name on the “homophobic registry?” As you can see the list is pretty comprehensive. Intimidation??? Who can possibly be responsible for someone else’s feelings? “The way he/she walks intimidates me.” Negative word??? “Excuse me sir/ma’am, may I have your list of negative words so I know what I may or may not say in your hearing?”
There’s no refuge in throwing yourself on the mercy of someone around you. This piece of legislation has that covered…
Qui doit déclarer un acte homophobe ?
Toute personne qui est victime ou témoin d’un acte homophobe doit déclarer cette situation au registre des actes homophobes (RAH).
Who must declare a homophobic act?
Every person who is victim or witness of a homophobic act must declare this situation in the register of homophobic acts (RAH).
Let’s get back to the ‘Bathroom Bill,” Your 15 year old daughter walks into a public washroom, in Quebec, where she finds herself under the observation of a man. Screaming, she runs out crying that there is a man in the bathroom. What she took for a man was a gender-confused individual and his feelings were hurt by being called a man. The next step for your daughter is the humiliation of her name on the “Homophobe Registry.” Not only is he required to report her but every witness is required, by law, to report your daughter.
What has that to do with the ‘non persons’ that I introduced at the beginning? What happens to those on the registry? Their names have been legally collected as people who are as vile as a pedophile. These are the dregs of our new social order. Thus it begins…our pastors and our fellow Christians.
The Christian Heritage Party has always supported equality under the law for all Canadians. There are no special groups… there is one group… people! Each individual person has a right to expect the same freedoms and equalities as his or her neighbour… whatever that neighbour’s colour, religion, personal sins or anything else. Equal protection under the law for all!
That’s our heritage… our Christian heritage. It’s time for all Canadians to understand from whence our heritage came and do all in our power to preserve that heritage. After all, it’s a short distance from ‘non human’ to ‘Krystallnacht’.
Let’s do all in our power to make the distance greater. Our federal government is responsible for rights in this country. Our rights are included in our Constitution. When our rights are suspended it takes strong leadership to ‘take on’ those who have taken our rights. That’s what the CHP provides… strong leadership!
CHP Canada has not faltered in our commitment to equality for all. Make your stand for strong leadership to defend the rights of all Canadians. Join CHP Canada today.
