Worried by UKIP successes the Tories recently decided to become the acceptable face of racism in Britain. Hence they set their henchmen off to publicly (and very loudly) beat the national scapegoats and pariahs.
Thereafter we see the politically inspired (media fed) Ofsted Trojan Horse fantasy. Ever since we have seen not only anti-Muslim but also increasing anti-Abrahamic attacks by Ofsted why?
Well the matter boils down to the very broad descriptions of “extremism” that were designed to allow Ofsted to find more (“red under the bed”) Muslim “extremists” in our midst and root them out, even where there aren’t any present. Coincidentally this new fantasy extremism happens to threaten British religious Jews and Christians as well. Hence in 2014 it is now claimed that separate boys and girls play times in Christian schools are extremism — what next? are we going to have a ban on single sex schools from these liberal fascists or maybe mandatory indoctrination in a new catechism of political correctness, secular fundamentalism and atheism?
British people traditionally considered themselves to live in a free country but that freedom is contracted each year as liberal tyrants tighten their pull on their noose around the necks of the British populous. Ofsted claim to attack religious schools because of their extremism, but the real extremism is the intolerant secular fundamentalism of Ofsted.
In a thousands of years of British history the education of children was an issue over which the parents had liberty of choice and it was not until the the late 19th century that the British government started to order compulsory education at all and it was not until the 1918 Fisher Education Act that this reached to secondary school age. Prior to that education was based purely on the parents choices. If people wanted to send their child to Eaton or to have them apprenticed to a butcher, tailor or candlestick maker it was all good as far as the government was concerned and the people that is age produced were on average, better, more emotionally healthy and more socially minded than the people of today.
Whether they were Catholics, Protestants, Jews, Muslims, Mormons, Atheists, Deists, Capitalists, Socialists, Anarchists, Distributists or of any other religious or ideological persuasion parents were able to give their children the education that they saw fit, not the education that their rulers saw fit.
This reflected the general state of liberty that existed in Britain which was the polar opposite of the fake “liberty” that had been born in the murderous French Revolution. In French “liberty” the state had the right and power to control the minutiae of everyone’s lives. In British liberty the state had certain purposes such as law and order and national security, but in general people lived lives which were blessed with a general reality of freedom of choice and freedom from undue interference.
Today, thanks to people whose minds and spirits owe more to the delusions of 1789 than to true British values, the British people suffer under the same philosophy of tyranny which has given the government powers over areas of life in which they never had any business throughout British history. Indeed this politically motivated Ofsted circus is just one of many signs of the secular fundamentalist tyranny that has enveloped us. It was started by politicians but is being enthusiastically implemented be secular fundamentalists clones of Tomas de Torquemada.
What is going on is quite simply a witch hunt and the devoutly religious are the main target. Anything will be used against them. For example Ofsted attacked one Muslim school because it did not teach“English law”. I wonder how many schools teach English Law to someone who is not at least doing a GCSE or A-Level in the subject? One rule for the devout and another rule for everyone else is the way that this goes.
The intolerant watchdog cited the “narrow view” of the role of women in society held by some students as a sign of one schools extremism. For them because a student said that…
“women stay at home and clean and look after the children.
They cook and pray and wait for us to come back in from school and help with homework.”*
That whole school is tainted with extremism. However, swap watching TV or listening to the radio with praying, and you will find similar statements would have been made by a large percentage of mainstream British school pupils, especially if we go back to the 1970s and before. Therefore whose British values are we talking about? real British values as have been held by British people for an appreciable period of time or cultural Marxist values that have been increasingly imposed upon British people as time has gone on?
I’m absolutely certain that when I was a Christian boy in a mainstream primary school with a strong Christian focus that a substantial number of my fellow students (possibly most) would have said…
Women should stay at home and clean and look after the children…
They should cook and wait for us to come back in from school…*
Was that school an extremist school promoting non-British values. Was that a school that should have been threatened with closure? No it was a good British school promoting Real British values, not things that were imposed upon our society by Marxist political infiltrators during the mid-20th century.
The only reason that this view of things did not continue right through high school was because the ‘new values’ of cultural modernism, moral relativism, individualism and various other anti-family and anti-religious notions were drummed into them through pseudo subjects such as ‘Personal and Social Education’ (now called various other things such as citizenship).
It is the modernist notions that are promoted in the cultural Marxist dominated British education system are the real threat to British values. Thanks to these people the actual traditional British values that the British youth learn from their parents and grandparents are replaced with various notions, many of them total follies.
As a British Muslim two historical precedents concern me. The first is the parallel between the anti-Jewish hatred of the early 20th century and the terrible persecution followed by mass murder that it lead to…
…and the second is the virulent anti-religious tyranny that secular fundamentalist Marxism and the terrible persecution followed by mass murder that it lead to in the Communist East during the 20th century.
Indeed it started as an issue of the persecution of the Muslims, but now it has spread to the religious Jews and Christians. Trace these developments down the line with a knowledge of history and the presence of figures such as Richard Dawkins and one possible outcome is…*…that after the last British Madrassa has been closed for the extremism of promoting traditional Muslim values and other banned ideas…*…the last Yeshivsa has been closed for promoting traditional Jewish values and other banned ideas…*…and the the last Sunday School closed for promoting traditional Christian social values and other banned ideas…*…then we will have reached that totalitarian reality that George Orwell warned us about in 1984or Ray Douglas Bradbury warned us about in Fahrenheit 451and the true values of Britain will then have been completely eradicated and this island will have been lost to the utmost evil, that darkness, horror and misery to which unopposed totalitarian secular fundamentalists always sink when they have managed to burn down everything that carries light and blessings in a place.
I may be ranting… I may be raving… but I truly hope that I am wrong. Yet whenever I look at similar patterns of demonisation, persecution and intolerance in history, I notice that they rarely end well.
* women should also obviously be able to have fulfilling and interesting lives of their own also. Obviously parents have duties towards their children and spouses have duties to each other but they are not slaves… and, despite the implications of the antis, religious people believe in individual well being just as much (and typically more so) than the irreligious people do.
