…have the power to label children “racist” on their permanent records if they don’t attend a workshop on Islam.
Let’s put aside the fact that Islam is not a race (I suppose it’s an honorary race in Britain) and note that in Britain they’re not going to need re-education camps. Apparently the schools are already performing that function—by law:
According to the letter sent last Wednesday, the visit is part of the National Curriculum for religious education and also reflects “the multi-cultural community in which we live.”
It went on: “It is a statutory requirement for primary school children to experience and learn about different cultures…‘Refusal to allow your child to attend will result in a Racial Discrimination note being attached to your child’s education record, which will remain on this file throughout their school career.”
The note caused such a hue and cry that it was followed the next day by another saying, Emily Litella-like (actually, Obama-like), “‘On reflection, disregard a section from the earlier letter” and apologizing for “inaccuracies.”
I would imagine one could write an entire blog populated by this sort of “PC run amok in school” story. And in a few years such an effort by a school may not even be considered the least bit remarkable or out-of-the-ordinary, if the entire PC campaign succeeds still further.
How very tolerant we have become.
