Sea Jay Foundation
Combatting Hate Crimes
Human Dimension Implementation Meeting Session 15
Warsaw, Poland, Sept 25, 2019
“Hate crime” can be viewed through the lens of Marxist Hegelian dialectic. “Hate crimes” and “hate speech” are the antithesis to freedom and free speech, structured to negate and erase them.
The false binary: you must support our Hate Crimes Line of Effort or you are a person who supports racism, xenophobia, discrimination, etc. Any option to just defend free speech is absent!
This erasure and negation use Marxist Critical Theory and “Repressive Tolerance”.
Oppose the Marxist agenda and you are criticized, ridiculed and torn down without mercy. Support the agenda and you get a free pass.
This explains precisely the asymmetry in enforcing the “hate crimes” laws. The 40 thousand London knife attacks fit the definition of hate crimes but are not classified as such. Yet the Metropolitan Police prosecute the victims for “offensive Facebook or Twitter posts” that are deemed “incitement to hatred and discrimination”. The crimes themselves are dismissed as “part and parcel of living in a big city.”
The Sea Jay Foundation warns the people in the OSCE area that this dialectic is an existential threat to Western Civilization. If nothing is done, it will usher in a totalitarian dark age that may last a thousand years.
