Listen up, Folks. Dr. David Duke has been arrested and detained by the Czech Republic police and is falsely accused of the crime of Holocaust denial. Jan Mikulovsky, spokesman for the police states this carries up to a three year sentence. He is falsely accused of promoting “movements seeking suppression of human rights”. David Duke does not suppress human rights, he fights for them. We the people of the world must join together to demand an end to the spread of draconian Orwellian thoughtcrime laws throughout Western nations. We must demand this man’s freedom.

David Duke is a prisoner of conscience. This term, coined by Amnesty International, indicates someone who is “imprisoned because of their race, religion, color, language, sexual orientation, belief, or lifestyle so long as they have not used or advocated violence. It also refers to those who have been imprisoned and/or persecuted for the non-violent expression of their conscientiously-held beliefs.”

David Duke is being held on account of his race, his support for his own race, and for the non-violent expression of his conscientiously-held beliefs. He has never advocated violence–you will not find any of the sort in his books, in any of his writings, on any of his internet radio shows. You will find no such advocating of violence anywhere by Dr. David Duke. If you have been following along for the past eight years of the existence of this website, you will have heard and read on a constant> basis that Dr. Duke opposes the use of violence or force. Instead, he fully supports upholding the basic human right of free thought and free speech. Shared ideas move humanity forward; shared truths help keep us from falling backward; shared opinions is the spice promoting tolerance.

Dr. Duke promotes tolerance–towards people around the world who are White. Throughout the entirety of Western nations, White people have been intimidated into silence at our own expense; our tolerance towards others is demanded by them, but it is almost never returned in kind. Western minds have been poisoned by a design of control by governments, the media, education, film, and even artistic forms. We are disallowed everywhere the right to think thoughts that are considered “unpopular”, much less openly express those opinions. The ultimate act of tolerance is the bravery to weather opinions we don’t like. The ultimate intolerance is the establishment of laws against opinions, thoughts, and speech. In other words, throughout the West, we are subjected to laws against our disagreeing with the people who put them there.

Laws against free thought can, have, and do result in genocide. The least of our worries is legal involvement and imprisonment. One only has to recall the history of communist countries to see how over a hundred million citizens can be murdered by their own governments for what they believe. This is what David Duke stands against; this is what he has spent his life defending against. One of the most basic human rights is the right to what we do with our own minds and voices, and every law created against either poses an eventual threat to the lives of millions of people.

Of all people who should understand this, are those people David Duke has defended, the Slavic people, citizens of the Czech Republic. The loss of millions of Slavs by genocide has been forgotten, deliberately erased and dropped down the fiery memory hole, by an increasingly controlled Western society. Today, it’s David Duke. Tomorrow, it is all the rest of us.

In America, John Adams created the Alien and Sedition Acts.

Lincoln suspended habeas corpus during the War Between the States.

Roosevelt placed Japanese-Americans into concentration camps.

Johnson and Nixon used the military and FBI to spy on war protesters and labeled many “subversives”.

Today, like most of Europe, we stand facing another thoughtcrime law that will apprehend American citizens the same way David Duke was arrested today–even on false accusation, let alone an actual voiced opinion.

Such laws create criminals out of innocent people. Such laws even result in their deaths. Such laws eventually result in genocide. The curtailment of basic human rights is never justified.

The police in the Czech Republic are wrong about David Duke–he is a brave defender of human rights, never one to suppress it. We at implore the good sense of the government of the Czech Republic to free this man, a prisoner of conscience.

Free thought and the voicing of those thoughts is a basic human right that everyone in the world is born with. Laws against them are a design of mass intimidation that, in its worst form, can kill.

Free David Duke, demand an end to the false accusations against him, and preserve Free Speech. Call the embassy of the Czech Republic.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals--and their Death Threats against People

How unfortunate; another example of leftist hypocrisy. People on the left oppose war and violence. (Actually, people on the right do, too.) But people on the left are against violence only until they decide to be violent. They just try to get by without acknowledging it. The rest of us are supposed to ignore that fact. If we say something then we are being politically incorrect. At least People for the Ethical Treatment admit--no--brag that they use violence against other people, supposedly to further their causes for animals.

I love animals. But I don't joke and say I eat them. I have pets, have had them all my life. They either were all strays or born to my strays. I oppose factory farming. Most of my food selections are organic. I've sent money to some animal rights organizations over the years and lots more to homeless shelters for animals. I've picked woolly worms off the road so that they don't get run over. It's an ugly mess when they do.

What beats me is when animal rights organizations threaten people. I don't get this when their supporters, people who support animals, threaten human beings.

I found this article where People for the "Ethical Treatment" of Animals has harassed and threatened Joe Biden and the breeder from whom he got his new puppy. Right here:

Now, I'm no Joe Biden fan. In fact, I pretty much don't like politicians. They nauseate me. But I don't make myself their enemy, and I don't harass their dog breeders.

According to the PETA website, "PETA works through public education, cruelty investigations, research, animal rescue, legislation, special events, celebrity involvement, and protest campaigns."

That's hogwash.

They forgot to add "death threats" and "acts of violence".

What started out as an animal rights organization that sought to stop abuses against animals has turned into an organization of violence against human beings. What was once the admirable aspirations of animal lovers has morphed into an organization of bullies.

At another news site, a commentator provides an education about PETA, words I have heard several years ago. Think on this one:

" Unknown to most dog and cat lovers, the animal rights (AR) and animal "welfare" advocates are in the process of systematically destroying the rights of pet owners in this country. PETA has openly admitted that they would like to see the end of all animal and pet ownership. In Europe and elsewhere, the AR folks have infiltrated every sector of government, and are passing more and more restrictive legislation around pet ownership. They have started this crusade in this country as well. When you read the next "anti-puppy mill" bill that is proposed, please be very careful to read the ENTIRE bill, as this is how PETA is advancing their agenda. Everyone can agree that puppy mills are bad, but hidden in these bills is onerous restrictions that make it impossible to be a responsible and careful breeder as well.

What has happened to this breeder is a clear indication of what the AR agenda is - to first attack everyone who is involved in purebred dogs. Those of you who are in favor of only adopting rescue dogs need to realize that with the end of purebred dogs comes the end of all dogs - and that the breeders of purebred dogs are not responsible for the dogs in shelters, and the shelters that PETA and HSUS run have been responsible for hundreds of thousands of euthanasized dogs. "

I've had one purebred animal. It was dumped out at my home anonymously when it was very young. It lived with me 23 years. While I never felt the need to buy a purebred, I see good reason to preserve the genetic lines of specific animals to prevent extinction. Some people with lots of money can buy purebreds, most people are happy with their free mutts. I was happy with all of my mutts and my one purebred, almost all abandoned at my door.

But to engage in harassment and threats against people who do buy purebreds deserves a jail sentence. And also a visit with a psychiatrist. It's one thing to have an opinion--it is certainly (supposed to be) protected by the First Amendment of the US Constitution--but to cross the line and deliberately bring harm to other people, or encourage harm be done to other people, or to have a system set up where it is understood (wink, wink) between organizations and their supporters to bring harm to other people is a crime. Period.

PETA has harassed people they hate by throwing dead animals and sending them dead animal body parts (I thought they were for the ethical treatment of animals--did they kills these animals? What about respect for the dead?) They have vandalized people's property. They have provided financial support for arsonists and attempted murderers. According to Bruce Friedrich
"If we really believe that animals have the same right to be free from pain and suffering at our hands, then of course we're going to be blowing things up and smashing windows. ... I think it's a great way to bring about animal liberation, considering the level of suffering, the atrocities. I think it would be great if all of the fast-food outlets, slaughterhouses, these laboratories, and the banks that fund them, exploded tomorrow."

Hey Bruce--did you actually liberate any animals while you set off all your bombs?

Blowing things up??? There's only one word for this: Terrorism.

This is not education.
This is not research.
This is not rescue.
This is not legislation.
This is not a special event.

This is intentional harm against the bodies, property and safety of human beings. Not only is this unethical, it is a serious violation of human rights.

What about People for the Ethical Treatment of HUMANS?

Ethics?? PETA--why don't you try some of it?

Better yet, you need to have your asses hauled off to jail.

Maybe you will when you kill somebody's kid.

A Heretic Writes

I am born. My birthday is April 3rd. I am told I am an Aries, the first sign of the zodiac. Apparently, we Aries like to be first, are courageous, selfish and pompous asses. We are warriors. I can live with that.

To have spoken those words a few centuries ago would have cost some poor hags their lives tied to a bonfire. Predicting the future was heresy. Being of the wrong opinion was heresy. Making statements outside the dominant religion was heresy. Any of those actions cost people their reputations, their livelihoods, even their lives. If you said or did something to provoke someone with a lot more power than you, you paid dearly for it.

Some things never change.

We live in a time more so now since the Inquisition when the cost of speaking one's mind is far too much for many people. Like the Inquisition, we live in a time when those who point the finger say they are only doing it for our good, and that they are the holiest of people. They know better than we. For our own good and for the good of society, if you or I have the wrong opinion, or the wrong thoughts, as far as they are concerned, we are ash beneath the fire.

I say let's you and I rise out of those ashes and give the hypocrites hell.

I write. I read. I opinionate. I research. I state facts. I back up my claims. I even make astute observations now and then. I don't jump through hoops. A few days ago, a pal said that I should take credit for my writings. I decided to do just that. So, if you hate what I write, here I am. Come get me. I love haters, the real ones, for I spend a lot of time examining them, writing about them, and exposing them. You are forewarned; it has been my experience that the face of real hate comes with angel wings. I am liable to point out the bat wings 'neath your feathers.

What is heresy? a quick perusal and copy/paste out of an internet dictionary states:
    1. An opinion or a doctrine at variance with established religious beliefs, especially dissension from or denial of Roman Catholic dogma by a professed believer or baptized church member.
    2. Adherence to such dissenting opinion or doctrine.
    1. A controversial or unorthodox opinion or doctrine, as in politics, philosophy, or science.
    2. Adherence to such controversial or unorthodox opinion.
We are surrounded by a lot of doctrines these days that take on the characteristic of a religion--that is, a belief system. Political correctness is just one example of such a religion. Say the wrong thing and you must repent, and even then, you are forever branded in the eyes of the political correctness lords, and those who are afraid of the lords.

We have all but lost our rights to freedom of speech in America. And then will go freedom of thought. Only those who hold the most power are allowed to have "dissenting" opinions. If you oppose those people you will be lumped under some serious epithets, and an example will be made of you to scare all the others. "Controversy" and "unorthodoxy" have become mere euphemisms to make light of situations that the powers that be want you to ignore.

To be a true heretic does take courage. It means doing battle. It means getting hurt. It means facing some enemies. Those are trivial consequences for the deeper purposes of being a heretic: to reveal the truth when everyone else believes lies. I think George Orwell said it best:

During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.
People die for what they think everyday. Hopefully, that won't happen to us, but know it is happening to someone right now.

Welcome to my blog.
