Shooting truth in the head
Posted by: McQ on Monday, April 02, 2007

And all in the name of political correctness and multiculturalism. As noted recently, and especially in the case of multiculturalism, Europe seems to be in the terminal stages of the disease. More proof from Britain:
Schools are dropping the Holocaust from history lessons to avoid offending Muslim pupils, a Government backed study has revealed.

It found some teachers are reluctant to cover the atrocity for fear of upsetting students whose beliefs include Holocaust denial.
A bit like dropping the teaching of the odious institution of slavery and its effects in US schools because it might offend a few whites. The truth be damned, offending someone, apparently, is a much more terrible crime than the actual historical event.

Next stop, teachers will be "reluctant" (or is that afraid for their lives given the track record of muslims) to teach non-believers for fear of upsetting students whose beliefs include hatred of non-muslims.

And just when the f*ck did holocaust denial become some sort of religious belief among the Muslims?

Savages. And the Western wusses who go along with this stupidity deserve to be 1st led to the chopping block. As long as I get to see their heads rolling around on the ground first, maybe lob a gob of spit on it...

Man - forget slippery slope, you are on the express elevator to hell, going down, with this kind of logic.

Let’s get a list of all the other things the thin skinned muslims find offensive and eliminate all of them from the curriculum as well.

I guess that means any history that covers the Crusades is out. Any middle east history post 1949 and the birth of the Jewish state - out. Any reference Porky Pig - out.

Will they stop at muslims? What if some Christians complain about evolution? Where does it end?

But, as Scott Erb will attest, the Holocaust is a European Christian thing, not the fault of the peacful Muslims, who also renounce terrorism and are in the process of a religious reformation.

Oh, and lets not loose sight of the real villians: fundamentalist Christians. Particularly if they are white, or male.

Modern Christians (even the horribly eeeeevil and theocratic American trinity of Dobson, Falwell, and Robertson) seem to be reluctant to self-detonate in pizza parlors, fly airplanes into buildings, and saw reporters heads off, so I think you can safely bet that no particular attention is going to be paid to their feelings about the British curriculum.

The real problem is Political Correctness.
"Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end." Winner of a contest to define “Political Correctness”
Try and speak truth and you will be jumped by the PC Police, and thrown into The Pit of Heresy” The worst examples are on University Campuses, but you can find it everywhere. It’s even dominating the field of Journalism, who’s motto used to be “Comfort the Afflicted and Afflict the Comfortable” no it’s “Don’t offend anybody. It might affect the ratings.”

So we should include a lengthy discussion on how many Natives the US displaced and murdered and how we put the Japanese in camps during WW2 and how the Gulf of Tonkin incident was merely a tactic to escalate our involvement in the war and that there were no WMDs in Iraq and we had no real reason to start that war. I agree, let the truth be told, thats the only way we can learn. People who don’t believe in the holocaust or in evolution don’t have a right to object because they have no facts on their side.

The beauty of the first Amendment is anyone can prove the adage, “It’s better to keep ones mouth shut and though of as a fool, than open it and prove the point” Fortunately in America, you can say anything you wish as long as you don’t get busted by the PC Police.
