A leftist student group at Goldsmith’s Univerity, London, defended Stalin’s Gulag abour camps Tuesday, calling them more “compassionate” than the “western, capitalist notion of prison”.
The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer Plus Society at London’s Goldsmiths University suggested people who question transgenderism are sent to such camps, for up to ten years, for “re-education”. The are of course currently outraged that a transgender chick-with-a-dick who was sent to a womens prison for politically correct reasons must now stand trial having raped and sexually assaulted several female inmates.
“The ideas of [Trans exclusive radical feminists] and anti-Trans bigots literally *kill* and must be eradicated through re-education,” the student group wrote on Twitter before deleting their account.
When Claire Graham, a special education needs teacher, asked if their attempts to silence a list of academics who questioned transgenderism was “a bit fascist”, the account replied: “Na, we’ll just arrange to send you to the Gulag.”
Gulags were brutal labour camps used by Stalin’s Soviet dictatorship to lock up opponents and “enemies of the state”, resulting in the death of an estimated 1.05 million people.
Whenever I come across the particularly nasty version of fascism these people have embraced I am reminded of the words of CS Lewis on tyranny:
“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”
Which is why the stupid self – righteous followers of Corbyn and his sidekick, the Stalinist thug McDonnell should never be allowed to have even a sniff of power.
