At the time when all sports fans, (deluded or otherwise) are hoping against hope that the long, long, line of England’s failures to win anything; anything at all is about to end: I have news. As Theresa May seeks to sidle into the arms of the Europeans through the servants’ entrance, despite all the Brexit bullshit from those who would have impeded her planning, a more subtle attack on our VALUES, all in the name of the great God known as Equality is yet under way again.
One of the strengths of the German National Socialist rule, in fact the main sinew of that vile organisation was their civil service; along with the Aryan ideal that ‘Orders were always to be obeyed’. The phrase ‘Befehl ist Befehl’, with the literal translation being ‘Orders are Orders’, was the true ‘achilles heel’ of a Nation, educated, sophisticated; a Nation whose genius brought out Goethe, a Nation which encompassed Bach and Wagner; a Nation which had gone through a terrible war because no one was able to question those in power: but now in thrall to the very idea that their ‘Fuhrer’’ their ‘Supreme Leader’ knew best, and was never to be questioned, no matter how strange or sinister the order!
The gas chambers and crematoria of the death camps did not suddenly spring from the dirt; there were architectural drawings, calculations for construction, detailed to the last degree; inclusive of the armoured window in the specially-armoured steel door which barred the entrance/exit to the ‘Shower Room’. That specific window being allowed for so that the last gasp, the last tortured movement of the latest batch of Jews could be viewed, so that the fans might be switched on once death had been confirmed; to remove the deadly gases before the mound of bodies could be transferred by hand-cart to the special fireproofed railed carts which were to fill the crematoria.
I also refer, just in passing, to further illuminate my point to the documents such as Law for the Prevention of Offspring with Hereditary Diseases (July 14, 1933), or the Statistical Report on the “Final Solution,” known as the Korherr Report (March 23, 1943), but it was the people who compiled these documents, and who helped the design, and carried out the slaughter of (they hoped) an entire race of human beings, the ones who drew up the specifications for the efficient use of Zyklon B because it was costing too much to shoot and bury all these ‘Untermenschen’, with the help of both Gestapo, Infantry and the Panzer regiments of German Armies.
But why, I hear you ask, bring out these long-dead people, whose dreams of a 1,000 year Reich and an Aryan state were crushed by the Allies? Why point to these dreadful, terrible documents which gave the lie to the list after list of the concentration camp lists of the deceased, all of who were stated to have died of either dysentery, or typhus?
Because it is a very short step from stopping a man, who trained and worked as a doctor in the NHS from 1989, from taking up a position as a Health and Disability Assessor for the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) because his faith is ‘Reformed Baptist’ and a committed Christian, because he started a training course in May to become a health and disability assessor for the DWP; to taking the view to its ultimate conclusion. His role would have meant interviewing and then writing independent reports about the health of those claiming disability benefits.
However, when his instructor stated that reports must only refer to the patient – or “client” – by the sex that person identified themselves as, a discussion took place among the medics about the “fluid” nature of gender, Dr Mackereth claims. “I said that I had a problem with this. I believe that gender is defined by biology and genetics. And that as a Christian the Bible teaches us that God made humans male or female. I could have kept my mouth shut. But, it was the right time to raise it.
“The tutor took me aside and said he had passed my comments up the chain to the DWP.” They explained he could undergo training about the department’s policy, but the DWP had consulted lawyers and was adamant that any report or contact with clients should refer to them in their chosen sex otherwise it “could be considered to be harassment as defined by the 2010 Equality Act”.
The doctor replied that “in good conscience” he could not conform to those demands, and so the contract was terminated between them.
He said: “Firstly, we are not allowed to say what we believe. Secondly, as my case shows, we are not allowed to think what we believe. Finally, we are not allowed to defend what we believe. “By stating what has been believed by mankind for centuries – namely that gender and sex are determined at birth – you can come under ferocious attack.
“If we are no longer allowed to say that you believe sex and gender are the same and are determined at birth, everyone who holds my views can be sacked on the spot under this Act. I’m not an isolated case.”
It is, perhaps, a flight too far to correlate the case of a doctor who refuses to ‘toe the line’ when it comes to DWP gender policy with the ‘Final Solution’: but, if you recall that of which I wrote earlier, the architects, the construction engineers, the companies such as J.A. Topf & Söhne all were doing exactly what they were told to do, not because there was no alternative allowed, but because they agreed with their work!
