On March 18 2007, an organisation known as The Christian Congress for Traditional Values (aka ‘The CCTV’) launched their own YouTube channel.

On March 19 2007, they uploaded two videos of media coverage relating to their concerns over Sexual Orientation Regulations, and a third showing the role The CCTV played in the Jerry Springer: The Opera protests.

(Regulars may note that the JS:TO affair has much in common with this one, particularly the dishonest way in which the case has been presented, and use of the Daily Mail as a key propaganda device.)

On March 18 2007 the account campaign2007 was also created and a video entitled What The Government Doesn’t Want You To Know, expressing concern over what might happen should the Sexual Orientation Regulations pass into law. This, like the CCTV videos above, was uploaded on March 19 2007, and made available to the public at this URL:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mnjpgw91CXQ

It was then removed by the owner of that account on March 22 2007.

As no-one is publicly claiming ownership of this film, I’m operating on the assumption that it is in the public domain until told otherwise. A mirror has been uploaded to YouTube at this location:

What The Government Doesn’t Want You To Know (ARCHIVE)

(A full transcript of the video is available here should that mirror be removed.)

On the evening of March 19 2007 a post was made to Usenet promoting the video by a new user (with the email address campaign2007a@googlemail.com). The headers show that this post originated from the IP address 80.42.230.184 (a Tiscali user, so the location given – ‘London’ – is not a reliable one).

On the website of The CCTV, the video was promoted on this page using a message ‘from an un-named source’. That message was removed today (March 23 2007) and replaced with a simple link to a slideshow of the related protest. The text from the original version of that page appears below:

Find out what the government doesn’t want you to know
From an un-named source

Find out what the government doesn’t want you to know: see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mnjpgw91CXQ

From this coming Wednesday it will be law that ALL children in ALL schools MUST be taught about homosexual sex and relationships, using explicit material. That includes YOUR CHILDREN and those of your friends, no matter what their age.

TELL EVERYONE IMMEDIATELY THAT THERE’S STILL TIME TO PROTEST.

This Government has secretly manipulated the parliamentary process to pass THE SEXUAL ORIENTATION REGULATIONS which will FORCE YOU to accept gay sex education for your children and, even more incredibly, will likely criminalise you if you ever say anything that a homosexual feels is insulting. You no longer have the right to bring up your children as you want to, or to disagree with homosexuals about their agenda and lifestyle choices.

If you are FED UP of being insulted by homosexuals as being “homophobic,” “bigoted,” and equivalent to a racist, just because you don’t agree that children should be taught about gay sex and relationships, then be at PARLIAMENT SQUARE AT 12 NOON this coming WEDNESDAY 21ST MARCH for 1 hour.

This is a peaceful but determined demonstration by ordinary people who don’t agree with the homosexual agenda to abolish the family and criminalise 99% of the population.

We’re running out of time – PASS THIS ON, let’s make sure everyone knows what the government is up to.

In the blogosphere, the video gained far more attention from those who objected to it than those who supported it (and some of the few weblogs that did support it can be seen here, here and here).

Despite this, very few critical comments appear to have been cleared for publication under the original video. Additionally, some negative comments were published, then later deleted. I myself made two unsuccessful attempts to have a measured response published, and other YouTube users reported similar censorship of their comments.

There were also a surprising number of comments in support of the video (and subscriptions to the related channel) from brand new users of YouTube. Either a bunch of right-wing ‘Christians’ signed up immediately to voice their approval (some of them on the day before the video went public), OR we are looking at sock-puppeting/astro-turfing on a grand scale. I’m inclined to think the latter.

Of course, when the film was withdrawn, all comments were removed with it.

(One YouTube regular who posted a response to the original video also noticed that comments were removed/disabled from the CCTV collection of videos at roughly the same time.)

An archive of the comments that appeared under the original video appears below. Comments are in sequential order, with the oldest comment at top. Recent members have been highlighted, and replies to existing comments have been indented.

Finally someone is standing up against the homosexual agenda! I do not believe in discrimination, but we shouldn’t be forced to teach our children things we don’t agree with.
It’s just shocking and appalling that the government wants to force this type of education into EVERY school!!!

I will be at the protest!

I can’t believe someone actually had the courage to say what’s simply true and wasn’t afraid of the vicious insults and personal attacks he’s likely to suffer from homosexuals. This video is factual, not “homophobic” and it’s time that gay thought control stops.
I will definitely be at the peaceful protest in London.

This law is disgusting. It’s bad enough that the Government is recommending reading books like “Daddy’s Roomate” and “Strange Boy”, which promote underage gay sex, but to make teaching it to primary school kids law is a whole new level of horrific.
I’ll definitely be at the protest.

When I wrote to the MP’s to make them aware of this, this is the reply I got from Alan Simpson MP’s office:

“Dear Dries **,

You disgust me. You are so totally and utterly out of touch with the real world that it is no surprise to me the Christian faith is fizzling out to nothing in the UK. Perhaps when we have managed to turn all our children gay the problem of religious bigotry affecting our laws will no longer be an issue.”

Well done to the film makers here. This is startling and sobering and I will make sure I’m at this demonstration on Wednesday. I think homosexuals can live how they like but have no right to insult the other 99% of the population with bigoted rhetoric or force their agenda for a sexual revolution on us and our children.

Everytime I watch this I can’t help feeling sick… if this video becomes reality – in fact THIS IT IS REALITY in some schools… did you know that the average age that a homosexual lives to is around 39!!!! why should we sentence our children to the death in the classroom with our own education?!?!
WAKE UP!

I am a parent and am horrified that this could be taught to my 6 year old son. How can a minority group of less than .5% of the population dictate what should be taught to my child? It is the loving parent who is being persecuted here – not the gay. We must stand up and oppose the SOR before it is too late. See you on Wednesday at 12:00.

I find it horrifying to think that my children could be taught in school that a gay lifestyle is as normal and acceptable as a heterosexual one, when i believe it to be morally wrong. I believe we should all have the right to teach our children according to our own beliefs, not according to what the government says our beliefs should be. I’ll definitely be at the protest on Wednesday!

How can you put in a few words the feelings you have by watching such a video. Are teachers taking any steps to avoid presenting these subjects to their young pupils? Anyone involved with young lives, and acknowledges that these issues will confuse young minds, must surely stand up and decide to omit it from their classes. Where is our nation going? God deliver us.

If this corrupt government passes this bill our children could be forced to learn about lifestyles (or should I say ‘deathstyles’) that are opposing God’s law. We cannot stand by and watch this happen, our children are far too precious. I have a daughter, it’s her 4th birthday on Wednesday — We will both be at Parliament Square Midday — Will you?

Hi thanks for your support we really appreciate it! We are not going for an anti gay march at the end of the day but to protect our children. Having worked with schools extensively there is an extremely small minority of gay children and we feel that education of this type will rather be used by paedophiles to groom children. Despite what other gays are doing you need to help us stand against this…

Unfortunate but we in the UK r subject & have been 4 a number of years to a form of grooming by new labour & the BBC into accepting modes of behaviour & values that years ago we would not have entertained. It is impossible to fight against this form of manipulation as to do so opens one up to vilification. The truth is we r led & educated by people who have no true values & r very often screwed up mentally thinking how our behaviour can be changed not to our benefit but more to theirs, grooming.

Good lord… i just got off the phone with a friend who generally keeps on top of subjects like this. He’s watched this film and said it’s all true – he even found the regulations on the internet for me. I cannot get my head around how corrupt this government is – what’s next? The way i see it, soon enough, paedophilia will simply be “another form of love” with the way this sick and twisted government is leading us.

You will certainly see me at the rally.

I was totally shocked by this video. To be honest, I felt physically sick watching it – the thought that homosexual activities such as this will be promoted to children as young as 5 & 6 is just vile! I’m sick and tired of being called a homosexual bigot simply because I want to bring my children a certain way. Why is it homosexuals can disagree with our way of life and not accept another opinion – but when we disagree with their “lifestyle” we’re labelled “bigots”! I’m sick of it!!

Homosexuality exists. Would you rather leave kids unprepared? Lots of parents don’t talk about drugs, alcohol, sex, etc, and all it does is cause problems. Besides, this video of the lady in the classroom is VERY fake. Its a set-up, obviously, and this video is completely twisted. SamzyH, kudos.

You have (probably deliberately) told blatant lies about the proposals. Prove me wrong, post evidence that the bill will cause teachers to announce that “families are wrong” Tell me, did incidents of homosexual behaviour increase after Larry Grayson got The Generation Game gig? If not, then can you see that the idea of children being indoctrinated into homosexual behaviour is equally as valid as the theory that watching Teletubbies makes them grow antennas?

Want to see what the gay rights lobby thinks about the family? – doa search in Google for “gay liberation front manifesto” – a creed most decent people will find pretty offensive, but one that Stonewall and friends have spent the last 30 years trying to implement. I for one want to see the family protected in this country and so will be at the march tomorrow.

I think it is about time someone said something! Well done!! It is absolutely true what this video says.

Be warned – this could be your children.

This is a hateful and misinformed video. It is absoloutely ridiculous. It is paranoid and an extreme caricature. The proposed regulations are about equality and the provision of goods and services. Many of the statements in this film are factually incorrect. Ask yourself how it would feel to be a homosexual student in a class and be told how evil your feelings are.

Few homosexual relationships last longer than two years, but in a study of 156 males in homosexual relationships lasting from 1-37 years, “all couples with a relationship lasting more than five years have incorporated some provision for sexual activity outside of their relationships.” (David P. McWhirter and Andrew M. Mattison, The Male Couple: How Relationships Develop, Englewood Cliffs: Prentice-Hall, 1984, pp. 252, 253)
So you’re right, 10 daddies a massive underestimation.

In a study of 2,583 older homosexuals, “the modal range for number of sexual partners was 101-500. In addition, 10.2% to 15.7% had between 501 and 1,000 partners, and between 10.2% and 15.7% reported having had more than 1,000 lifetime sexual partners” (Paul Van de Ven et al., “A Comparative Demographic and Sexual Profile of Older Homosexually Active Men,” Journal of Sex Research 34 (1997): 354).

It’s being rushed through parliament because there’s no real debate. No teacher would tell children that they’re not normal for being homophobic.

They’ll become what they want to be, in their own time, through their own experiments.

I love the part they ‘bash’ the gay side. “two daddies, or ten daddies”, “two mummies, or lots of mummies” — Like any gay parent is going to have a huge orgy in front of their child.

Get real!

Too many of you are failing to see the truth, and you’re simply believing on blind faith whatever is being fed to you. This video — like others have said — is factually incorrect, and is deliberately resorting to scare tactics, not to mention the crude exploitation of young children. I urge anyone who ends up believing this video to get informed from more accurate and reliable sources.

Utter rubbish, they do not teach this stuff about heterosexual relationships in schools. I don’t think my niece who is of the age range you showcase (and lets face it, it is a showcase) should be taught about sex in any form, be it heterosexual or homosexual. If I found that she was being told by a teacher to “experiment” with someone I would hit the roof. The one thing you forget is that children talk, its the bliss that is childish ignorance. Your video is grossly mis-informed.

I think that was one of the most assinine pieces of video I’ve ever seen. No one teaches heterosexual kids how to experiment with one another and “discover” their sexuality when they’re 5, why would they suddenly do it now? The point is to treat homosexual and heterosexual families with the same amount of respect, not suddenly turn everything into a sex-frenzy. That video was just way over the top and shouldn’t be taken seriously at all, that just won’t happen.

I can see very clearly what the film makers are trying to achieve. It is a fight to preserve the innocence of our children.

At this age they should not be taught about heterosexual sex and certainly not about gay sex either. The scary thing is that books about gay activities are already available to 5 year olds in some schools and this video will soon becoming a reality.

Well done on raising awareness on this very important issue.

Are all you people from England really that stupid? Do you really think any governing body in England or in the world, would pass legislation that tells young children to experiment with each other to determine their sexuality? If you believe this then I have a great make money at home idea for you to purchase from me.(Hey PT Barnum said it best) Besides, as a young person I didn’t need to experiment with anyone else, male or female, to know that I was gay.

This is obviously what COULD happen if a teacher would wish so, not everywhere. Either way, after this law is past, it will be illegal for parents to say that they do not want this taught to their children. The Bill therefore clearly goes against any democratic freedoms!

This cant be real, it would of been all over tv and the newspapers by now. But even if it is real…6 is too young. To explain sexuality to kids they need to understand the scientific and social factors surrounding it. And i do not believe a 6 year old can undertsand that.

What a load of mis-informed, scaremongering crap. The “enactment” is just a far-fetched scenario that would never happen. Nobody is suggesting teaching kids that “everyone is bisexual”, nor indeed about the act of sex itself. The object is to make children aware of alternative lifestyles. To teach them that there is no reason to fear or ridicule those who are different from themselves. A lesson that the makers of this film would do well to learn.

I am involved in research to see if homosexuality is an inherited genetic characteristic and overwhelming evidence is that it isn’t genetic, but lifestyle choice.
No gene has been found for homosexuality, and so I would agree with the film makers that care needs to be taken what is taught to children, as this is the sole source of homosexual tendencies.
Studies into the hypothalmus which have been discredited by many scientists are what homosexuals base their claim of genetic homosexuality.

-

agrazi77: [Joined YouTube on March 19 2007 and left three comments in this thread.]

There is this question of homosexual genetics… there are many scientists that have argued that homosexuality is something that you’re not born with… it’s an adopted behaviour.
There have been scientific studies on twins and ALL these twin studies have only shown that’s it’s the environment that influences homosexuality – NOT genetics.
Our educational system should not influence our children to adopt such behaviour.

I’m gay, and quite happy to be one, but I think the government is perfectly capable of enforcing this kind of education. If you don’t believe that, go to the Daily Mail webpage and type in ‘Outcry over explicit sex education video shown to five-year-olds’

Already, they have recommended graphical homosexual literature in schools, from the age of 3. For example, the book ‘Strange Boy’ (if you want to see the pictures, go to ‘govrecommended’ – DOT – ‘phpnet’ -DOT- ‘us’)

-

One thing you will notice about many of the sock-puppet comments is the repeated suggestion that homosexuality and paedophilia go hand in hand, a message that is clearly reinforced at this CCTV web page…. but that last comment, featuring the glorious line – “I’m gay, and quite happy to be one” – is the kicker.

The Daily Mail article mentioned in that comment (fisked here) is easy enough to happen across:
Daily Mail – Outcry over explicit sex education video shown to five-year-olds

In fact, there just happens to be a mirror of this same article on the CCTV website.

This is not the only example of common ammunition; the CCTV website also features a mirror of an article about the book ‘Strange Boy’ and this book and another that is aimed at much younger readers (Daddy’s Roommate) are the primary items brought forward as evidence in this Sky News appearance by The CCTV.

(Please note how carefully these books are featured side-by-side. One might almost think that ‘Strange Boy’ – the book featuring “an inappropriate encounter in the woods between a 10-year-old boy and a 14-year-old boy” – was the one pitched at 3-year-olds.)

Oh, and take a look at the URL ‘georgeleuridan’ is pushing right at the end – http://govrecommended.phpnet.us/

At the time of writing, that page was not visible in any of the major search databases. Or any of the small ones.

It is not a ‘found object’, but material that’s coming straight from the ‘Christians’ behind the original video.

(Note also the earlier sock-puppet urging web users to “do a search in Google for ‘gay liberation front manifesto’”… which also just happens to be featured at the CCTV website.)

With all of the above in mind, one might be forgiven for suspecting that The CCTV (or someone closely connected to them) was responsible for the What The Government Doesn’t Want You To Know video and/or that activists from that group promoted the video and the agenda behind it for the 3 short days it was live.

I’ve sent The CCTV an email to ask them outright about their role in this, and will let you know what they say (if, indeed, they have anything to say for themselves at all).

One thing is certain; the author(s) of this propaganda did not have the courage to address the issue in an open and honest fashion… instead they released grossly misleading and exploitative propaganda anonymously to promote their campaign and then sought to erase the evidence once the job was done.

UPDATE – This grubby piece of propaganda has now been removed… but you can download a copy of it here.
