THERE is a timeless parable attributed to the wise Cherokee Indians about two wolves. A grandfather is with his grandson and tells him that we all have two wolves inside us. One is a good wolf, representing love and all that is kind, noble and true; the other is a bad wolf, representing hatred, oppression and lies. The grandson thinks for a moment before asking ‘which wolf wins?’ The grandfather quietly replies, ‘the one you feed’.
We’re not against any wolves per se, and would normally condemn fictional stories such as the one above as grotesquely speciesist; since the Cherokees told the tale and not (white male) Mark Twain, however, the parable is true for us. The Progressive Left is firmly on the side of love and against hate; the Right is the antithesis of this and hates love. In the world of US politics, Donald Trump is the bad wolf who has been feasting on the flesh of oppressed migrants and minorities; the likes of anti-gun Democrat Liz Krueger is the emaciated good wolf, who desperately needs a square meal.
Across the channel, a brave group of Social Justice Warriors have taken the battle to the bad wolf, demanding that businesses stop feeding it. Their name: Stop Funding Hate (“SFH”). Financed by crowd-funding and fuelled by love, the modus operandi of SFH is to use social media to publically shame businesses which advertise in newspapers who promote hatred.
The chief targets of SFH are some of the most popular newspapers in the United Kingdom, including the Daily Mail (4 million readers daily), The Sun, The Daily and Sunday Express. These newspapers all happen to be on the right of the political spectrum and issue hatred on a daily basis.
One example of vile hatred include the Daily Mail’s frequent calls for the British Government to limit the number of migrants entering the country. The Mail justify their Hitleresque stance on the basis that Britain is an “over-crowded island already” and “simply cannot afford unlimited immigration of additional welfare recipients.”
Disgusting isn’t it?
The Mail also refuses to join the campaign for all 72 genders to have their own bathrooms, to obliterate the distinctions between men and womyn, and have even had the audacity to link ‘terrorism’ with the religion of peace. Here is a typical headline:
Seeing such headlines, the Stop Funding Hate SJWs will firstly identify businesses which have advertised in the Daily Mail. SFH then sends hundreds of loving Tweets which castigate these businesses for advertising in such newspapers. Facing a total loss of business from SJWs, who account for the bulk of consumer spending today, eventually these businesses give in. They take their advertising to more progressive publications like the Guardian or Everyday Feminism.
SFH has rightly enjoyed many successes. Only yesterday, British greeting cards and stationary store ‘The Paperchase’ issued this suitably grovelling apology when taken to task by SFH:
Hateful conservatives have expressed disgust that businesses would capitulate to ‘cultural marxists’ in this way. They say that ‘decent people’ should refuse to be blackmailed and that SFH is effectively closing down all debate about key social issues in favour of promoting their own ‘extreme, progressive agenda’.
But conservatives are all about hate whereas we believe in love. It’s so simple, isn’t it?
Just don’t feed the bad wolf.
