It Matters Who Is Educating Who and How They Are Doing It
“Intelligence Services, Hate Crime Unit remains dedicated to the achievement of its complementary objectives: the prevention and thorough investigation of hate/bias motivated offences and the pro-active education of others to enable them to recognize and combat hate. Our goal is to encourage mutual acceptance among communities and to safeguard the freedoms, safety and dignity of all persons as guaranteed by the Charter of Rights and Freedoms”
An idea has been planted and matured that some individuals or groups suffer disproportionate harm due to their ethnicity, sexual orientation or particular spiritual platform. Most of this is comprised of information filtered through the bipartisan lens of the ‘special interest groups’ that claim they are more greatly affected by hate/bias than their fellow citizens. Theirs is garbage can ‘motivated reasoning’ designed to create ‘bias blind spots’ where you only truly hear what you ‘want to believe is true’. When a person is occupied in such a mental mind set they end up squabbling from a base of personal values, while thinking they are actually dealing from a basis of facts. In the ongoing blah, blah, blah entailed there has emerged opinions both pro and con as to the reality and need for hate/bias crime laws. But, be assured such laws are needed in our multi-cultural swap of personal ideals.
Community and Individual Impacts
It is claimed that hate/bias motivated crimes have longer lasting serious side-effects for society as a whole. It is stated a hate/bias motivated crime not only victimizes the individual, but also the entire group that individual belongs to, resulting in the increased isolation, stress and vulnerability of that particular group. As well, it is stated if police do not respond to reports of hate/bias crimes immediately and appropriately, these crimes can lead to increased social conflict between opposing groups and possible retaliation. As well, it is claimed that conversely, a timely and effective police response can have a positive and lasting influence on the relationship between police and various communities. Positive relationships such as these are supposed to have the ability to provide extensive benefits in other aspects of public safety. What these other aspects of public safety are visibly comprised of seems illusionary at best.
Communities are comprised of divergent ethnic individuals, and while it is stated hate/bias crimes have a disproportionately greater effect on their victims than other types of crimes, all individuals are impacted differently. The particular cultural background of the individual certainly influences the degree of reaction to any type of crime they may become enmeshed with.
But, from the murky depths of psychology and sociology, the claim is made that when the core of a person’s identity is attacked through hate/bias crime, that degradation and dehumanization of the individual occurs. An action of dehumanization purportedly describes a behavior or process that undermines individuality of and in others. It is the exhibiting of a disposition towards others that debases the others’ or acts inhumanely towards them through disruption of social norms. But, the ascribing of social norms disruption as being the measuring stick of dehumanization is not always ‘sane or sound’.
“From a sociological perspective, social norms are informal understandings that govern the behavior of members of a society. Social psychology recognizes smaller group units, such as a team or an office, may also endorse norms separate or in addition to cultural or societal expectations. In other words, norms are regarded to exist as collective representations of acceptable group conduct as well as individual perceptions of particular group conduct. They can be viewed as cultural products including values, customs, and traditions which represent individuals’ basic knowledge of what others do and think that they should do.” I suggest you try applying the measuring stick of dehumanization to my actions of disrupting the social norms of the pedophiles, queers and trans-genders and put the spotlight of spiritual insanity fully upon yourself.
Further, “as social norms define what is humane is, reflexively these same social norms define what isn’t humane or is inhumane. Figuratively in law, the dehumanizer is the judge, attorney, and jury and the person dehumanized is an alien, a non-citizen without rights, purpose, or acknowledgment in the dehumanizer’s court. The act of dehumanization is then the alienation of human rights.” Pretty twisted ass backward sense of logic in this, eh? What human rights do you alienate in castigating a pedophile? What human rights do you give to the victim of the pedophile? To liken the actions of segments of our society to those of non-human animals is neither a hate crime nor dehumanization; for to be truly human you do not verbally, physically, sexually, spiritually, socially or economically with deliberate intent disrupt any basis of healthy societal social norms. But, if you do not disrupt the actions of those that destroy morally healthy societal norms you are truly dehumanizing it. There simply is too much theorizing surrounding dehumanization by persons with vested interests in the particular form of societal psychosis they are trying to advance.
“Dehumanisation is viewed as a central component to intergroup violence because it is frequently the most important precursor to moral exclusion, the process by which stigmatized individuals and groups are placed outside the boundary in which moral values, rules, and considerations of fairness apply.” This is a very strong, all encompassing statement; and, for certain dehumanization due to the degree of violence of a hate crime will proportionately affect the victim’s self-identity, self-esteem and often occasion their depression. “But, the degree of violence is the mitigating factor of prime concern, not the specific type of crime label.
“As well, there may be feelings of generalized fear in the group to which the victim belongs, and in other groups that identify themselves with the targeted group, especially when the displayed hate is based on an ideology or doctrine that speaks simultaneously against several groups.” But to claim that responses to hate crimes are more damaging to multicultural societies is not true, for all negative responses are based somewhere in fear. And, fear is a primary and strong emotion that has distorting effects on the perception of ordinary people in all societies. And the majority of Canadians are daily being pushed by their fears generated through one source or another. Just what exactly do you fear and why do you fear it when you live in this claimed land of democratic freedoms?
One thing that appears to be pushing Canadian fears is the ineptitude displayed by Government fiscal policies that are running amuck.
Disproportionate harm to all sectors of Canada is transpiring as we watch the Loonie sink to 9-month low as it hits worst week in over a year. The Trudeau tactics continue to ensure that Blood Shall Flow In Canada as posted on February 11, 2018 Turn off the Trudeau Tap of financing sharia advance in this nation.
It is a righteous action with God that this take place.
