Minister Upset By F4J Protest
Minister Upset By F4J Protest The
former children's minister Margaret Hodge told a jury yesterday that she was
"shocked and distressed" when two members of Fathers4Justice
handcuffed her as she spoke at a conference in Manchester.
She was then asked why she decided to be a witness in the case, since other fathers' rights stunts had not been pursued through the courts. She said it was her public duty to act as a witness to protect other elected representatives from such actions.
Ms Hodge has been a major promoter of male-hatred and family destruction just
about all of her life as far as I can remember.
Indeed, she, together with other members of Gordon Brown's government, has
recently been responsible for the 'well-timed' publication of the bogus research
carried out by the government-funded Equal Opportunities
Commission concerning the alleged gender Pay Gap - hence Gordon Brown's recent
surge in popularity among women voters.
In other words, it's the usual scam.
For newcomers, here is how this works.
Just like the lies concerning Saddam's WMD in order justify the Iraq war, the
government funds and promotes the dissemination of lies via the Equal
Opportunities Commission concerning the gender Pay Gap. 'Women' are outraged by
this alleged pay gap. And so Gordon Brown then thumps his fist on the table and
says that he will do something about it and, for example, prosecute those
employers who are not paying women the same as men - and so the women flock to
vote for him.
But it is all a set up. A sham.
There is no gender pay gap due to discrimination.
(Indeed, it is already illegal for employers to pay men more than women for
doing the same job. And so if the EOC really did have any evidence that
employers were discriminating against women, then the EOC would already be
prosecuting them. And the fact that this is not happening
demonstrates that their 'evidence' for discrimination is bogus.)
In a nutshell, the feminist/government tactic is this.
Enrage 'women' over some phony issue, and then claim that you will do
something about it. And then, watch the 'women' flock to vote for you.
It's the usual story. Demonise men in order to profit.
And here is yet another recent example of Gordon Brown's
cronies funding organisations that promote 'disharmony' ...
Taxpayers' cash is sponsoring the Jeremy Kyle Show, described by a judge as "a human form of bear-baiting", it was revealed last
The Government education quango Learndirect has an advertising deal costing some £500,000 a year for the controversial ITV
Earlier this week, a judge called the daytime talk-show a "morbid and depressing display of dysfunctional people" after a spurned husband was provoked into butting his wife's lover in front of the studio audience.
On and on it goes.
And MRAs need to understand that whether it is government-funded groups like
those concerned with VAWA or IMBRA in the USA, or those like the EOC over here,
the basic tactic remains the same.
Claim that there is some form of discrimination or 'abuse'
against women going on. Claim that your administration will do
something about it. And the government can then haul in the votes of 'women'
and, also, fund huge government empires and a large number of
employees that continue to perpetrate the lies and, further, actually fuel
further the 'disharmony' - and so those women's votes keep coming in, and the
further funding and the growth of various government-funded empires remain
Indeed, the sneaky funding of the bear-baiting programme above is just one -
relatively trivial - example of what left-wing feminist-dominated governments do
on a huge scale.
To your face, they claim to be concerned about some form of
'abuse', but behind the scenes they are forever trying to fuel it.
Indeed, the perennial falsehoods about the gender pay gap are, in essence, no
different from the never-ending deluge of lies concerning the 'abuse of women' -
designed to fund and to promote the ever-growing power of government and its
various associated women's lobby groups.
For example, old-timers will surely remember the absurd feminist claim that 100,000 women
in the USA died from anorexia every year - an illness that, they alleged, arose
as a result of sexual abuse.
(Eventually, Professor Christina Hoff Sommers researched the matter via
various medical establishments and discovered that, in fact, only about 100
women died from anorexia each year and that sexual abuse had nothing to do with
it. The main factors causing anorexia seemed to have something to do with genes
and with the mother-daughter relationship.)
And last year, here in the UK, the government, in collaboration with various
other feminists and those working in the abuse industry, proclaimed that 40,000
'sex-slaves' were expected to be trafficked to Germany in time for the World
Cup. In the end, ... Newly unrestricted European Union documents reveal that the German police uncovered just
five cases of ‘human trafficking for the purpose of sexual exploitation’ related to the international football
And back in the USA, as Carey Roberts has pointed out, the Washington Post reported that early estimates of up to 100,000 human trafficking victims being secreted into the United States each year were grossly exaggerated. Despite more than $150 million of taxpayer dollars diverted to a massive search and rescue effort, it turns out the actual number of trafficking victims is closer to 200
This hatred towards men being generated for profit on the basis of downright
lies is almost ceaseless.
And the falsehoods about the gender pay gap are no different. Instead of
claiming that women are being sexually abused or physically abused, they are
being financially abused.
It's the very same scam.
But trying to get politicians to stop all these lies is futile. It would be like asking
a tiger to stop eating meat.
No meat. No life.
And many government organisms thrive on this hatred towards
men. They would cease to exist without it.
And, just like tigers, they are not going to do anything to
