(LifeSiteNews) – As the transgender movement faces increasing pushback not only from the Right but from feminists, liberals, and even prominent atheists such as Richard Dawkins, the vitriol of trans activists is reaching a fever pitch. J.K. Rowling has faced both death threats and doxing; trans activists frequently threaten violence to “TERFS” (trans-exclusionary radical feminists) on social media; and vocal critics of gender ideology often face what one recipient referred to as “terror campaigns.”

I wrote an extensive profile of several of the conservative women being targeted by gender activists recently in The European Conservative, and now more details of one doctor’s involvement in these campaigns is being revealed. Thirty-one-year-old Dr. Adrian Harrop, an associate general practitioner at the Brownlow Health Central in Liverpool, has been exposed before a medical tribunal as a serial harasser who utilized social media to “identify and potentially target individuals for online and even real-world abuse,” as the Daily Mail put it.

Those of us involved in this debate online have known for years that Harrop is a particularly pernicious bully, although some of the details of his harassment still cannot be published. But the Mail is now publishing many facts hitherto unavailable to the public, including the fact that he has demanded that female critics of his views get off social media; has disparaged them in vile terms; posted about their children and the location of their school online; and even given hints as to where they live. The intent of these online attacks, it has been established, was to drive opponents of trans ideology offline and out of the debate.

In fact, Harrop used the threat of doxing to silence his critics, telling one that he would only cease posting her name and professional details online if she left Twitter. At one point, he explicitly told a critic that he did not want her to “feel safe or welcome here,” noting: “A simple solution here…Delete your profile and remove yourself and I’ll remove all tweets with references to your name.” Dr. Harrop also insinuated that his ideological opponents had health problems despite not having information to prove this.

Hungary recently took a major step to protect children from having their innocence destroyed and being sexualized by LGBT propaganda in schools and by pornography in the mass media.

Please SIGN and SHARE this petition which expresses agreement and respect for the wishes of the sovereign nation of Hungary to protect its children against the onslaught of LGBT indoctrination propaganda and pornography.

Since passage of the bill the fake news outlets from Europe to America have predictably begun to fabricate outrage and, or, simply lie about the contents of the bill. And, the corrupt European Union has also now started to attack Hungary's efforts to protect children.

For doing the hard and good thing, Hungary now needs our support.

The bill, which was passed last week, specifically prohibits showing pornographic material or content portraying homosexuality or transgenderism to minors under the age of 18. Other measures include a registry of sex offenders, regulations on sexual education, and stronger policies against child pornography.

This policy is to be welcomed as a pro-active measure against the liberal and LGBT propaganda machine which is steadily encroaching on Hungary's borders, and which threatens to tear down Christian civilization altogether.

Indeed, the same week that this law was passed in Hungary, Vienna's (Austria) deputy mayor distributed "Rainbow Family" information boxes to 350 kindergartens in the Austrian capital. And, Vienna is only about 50 miles from the Hungarian border! 

But, never satisfied with corrupting the children of their own countries, LGBT activists and their accomplices in the EU have been quick to castigate Hungary, claiming that the Budapest government has "discriminated" against homosexuals with their law to protect children, and in doing so, has violated EU law.

However, Hungary's Justice Minister, Judit Varga, set the record straight in an interview with Hungarian journalists, stating:

"This is one of a number of declarations declaring certain Hungarian measures to be contrary to EU law without a thorough examination. The fake news that has taken wing in these statements is completely unfounded.

In Hungary's view, the legislation has nothing to do with EU law. The issue of subsidiarity and constitutional, national identity is a matter for the Member States. Furthermore, the European Charter of Human Rights also says that a parent has the right to determine the direction of their children's development in a culturally traditional background."

And, more broadly, Viktor Orbán, Hungary's Prime Minister, had this to say about Hungary's new law:

"The current left-wing campaign against Hungary is further proof that today, the left is the enemy of freedom, because instead of freedom of speech, they want political correctness as defined by them, and hegemony of opinion instead of a pluralism of ideas.

The new Hungarian law does not conflict with any lofty ideals or European laws. The new Hungarian law simply states clearly that only parents can decide on the sexual education of their children. Education in schools must not be in conflict with the will of parents; it must at most be supplementary, its form and content must be clearly defined and it must be subject to parental consent.

Parents also rightly expect that on platforms used by our children, pornography, sexuality for its own sake, homosexuality and gender reassignment programs should not be available. These restrictions must also be defined with surgical precision. In Hungary, no one has a say in how adults live their lives. In our view, a free adult should not have to give an account of his life in front of any secular authority — only before God when the time comes."

Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition which supports the government of Hungary in their passage of this pro-active child protection measure banning LGBT propaganda and pornography for under-18s.

Thank you!

Fortunately, complaints about Harrop’s hundreds of tweets finally reached the General Medical Council, and Ryan Donoghue of the GMC informed a hearing that Harrop’s actions at times constituted an overt “campaign of cyber bulling.” Harrop faced disciplinary action last year, with the Mail reporting that it was concluded that “his most extreme tweets had impaired his fitness to practice [as a physician] and amounted to misconduct.” According to Donoghue: “He was motivated by a different view on transgender rights. He felt so strongly that he was right that he saw it as his job to silence those on the other side of the debate.” Harrop’s case is ongoing (see this tweet thread with details).

It bears mentioning that Harrop’s behavior is common for those on the pro-trans side, and that his campaign is a good example of what those who speak out against the trans movement’s agenda often face. The farce of tolerance is exposed by the viciousness faced by those from both the Right and the Left who dare to question the tenets of transgenderism, with men like Harrop willing to engage in harassment, insults, misogyny, threats, and even blackmail to bully their ideological opponents into submission. Harrop’s case, unfortunately, is not an aberration; it is a microcosm.

As these examples surface and are made public, hopefully those who have been led to believe that the transgender movement is only opposed by mean-spirited people will realize that in most cases, the precise opposite is true. Harrop, and his fellow activists, must be held accountable for their behavior.
