I’m usually somewhat busy early mornings, although I hate using the word “busy” in view of what Drew is involved in these days. Now moving is really busy.
Anyway, I wouldn’t normally boot this early on weekends but, I saw this madly insanely bizarre headline when I took the papers off the front porch today. There it was on the front page in huge bold print and above the fold. No way to miss it.
This is an excellent example and one I wish didn’t exist, of just how far to the left and how far gone parts of this country have drifted in compliance with the dictatorship of political correctness. How did things become “CORRECT?” Why has a major part of of this country (and I would include the USA) not thrown off the shackles of this miserable and punitive new age form of thought and speech control? Why has one group who is not even a majority, been allowed to decide for the many just what correct is? And why can they not understand that it’s ppl like them that in the end, give birth to the people like that fellow in Norway who shot dead so many? It’s the people on the left with their bizarre ideas of equality and their take on how things should be, that give rise to folks like me whose attitude to the killings in Norway was, Oh well. At least they were only liberals.
FOSTER COUPLE LOSE CHILDREN FOR BEING MEMBERS OF UKIP
Just what the heck is UKIP?
Well, it is the U.K. Independent Party, and here is a link to their site. Lets see just how dangerous these mad folks are. Ya never know. They could as far right as I am and that would be a danger.
UKIP immigration policy
· An immediate five-year freeze on immigration for permanent settlement.
· After the five year freeze, a strictly controlled, points-based system similar to Australia to be introduced.
· An aspiration to ensure that future immigration does not exceed 50,000 people a year.
· Regain control of UK borders by leaving the EU.
· Repeal the 1998 Human Rights Act and withdraw from the European Convention on Human Rights.
· Ensure British benefits are only available to UK citizens or those who have lived here for at least five years.
. End the active promotion of the doctrine of multiculturalism by local and national government
Hmmmm. Overall I’d guess, just a wild one mind you, I’d guess they insist on England first. Control their own borders without having to consult with foreigners.
OK, that last one seems unreasonable. Imagine that will ya. They want to protect their country’s borders. Jeesh. What’s with that? I mean, how the hell else will illegals be able to gain entry to an already overcrowded island?
Withdraw from the the European court. Seems like more than half the country wants that and so do many in the govt. Still tho, that’s unreasonable too.
The Brits fought a war to be allowed to have other folks from other countries come here and dictate how they should think and speak and act.
Don’t give benefits so freely and especially to those who have not been here awhile. Whoa. Hold the phone there fella. Does that mean the Brit working taxpayer shouldn’t have the god given right to support everyone from Afrika and from Eastern Europe and the middle east? And how about those Asian families with 12 and more kids and no daddy living large in nice houses? Does UKIP oppose supporting those poor unfortunates? Oh my.
Now that really is unreasonable.
OK, so here is the story and this is from the BBC. There is a video at the site which you may or may not be able to view. No matter cos you won’t need to see a video anyway, to see how very wrong and how very mind numbingly dumb this decision was.
For the record least anyone think I drift to the left on the issue. I don’t. No way. I don’t personally think too highly of multi cultural fostering and adoptions.
But that isn’t for me to decide and if ppl think they just can’t live unless they do that, oh well. That’s up to them.
So I do find myself in sympathy with the couple here, who have done nothing more then belong to a legal political party whose leader is not a pariah and in fact is regularly interviewed on TV and radio and has no criminal record of any sort. He is in fact an outspoken critic of the EU. He speaks out loud, very loud, what many here say quietly or among friends. And he says it from of all places, right inside the European Parliament.
UKIP couple have foster children removed from care
A couple have had three foster children removed from their care because they belong to the UK Independence Party.
Rotherham Borough Council said the children were “not indigenous white British” and that it had concerns about UKIP’s stance on immigration.
It said it had to consider the “needs of the children longer term”.
The unnamed couple told the Daily Telegraph social workers had accused them of belonging to a “racist party”. UKIP said it was an appalling decision.
Rotherham Borough Council’s Strategic Director of Children and Young People’s Services, Joyce Thacker, told the BBC that her decision was influenced by UKIP’s immigration policy, which she said calls for the end of the “active promotion of multiculturalism”.
UKIP’s immigration policy states the party wants an “end [to] the active promotion of the doctrine of multiculturalism by local and national government”, and urges Britain to leave the European Union (EU).
The Labour Party has called for an investigation into the Labour-run council’s decision, after claims from UKIP it could have been politically motivated.
The couple, who have been approved foster parents for seven years, were eight weeks into the placement when they were approached by social workers about their membership of the party.
The wife told the Daily Telegraph: “I was dumbfounded. Then my question to both of them was, ‘What has UKIP got to do with having the children removed?’
“Then one of them said, ‘Well, UKIP have got racist policies.’ The implication was that we were racist. [The social worker] said UKIP does not like European people and wants them all out of the country to be returned to their own countries.”
The paper says the woman denied she was racist but the children were taken away by the end of the week.
She said the social worker told her: “We would not have placed these children with you had we known you were members of UKIP because it wouldn’t have been the right cultural match.”
The couple said they had been “stigmatised and slandered”.
Ms Thacker said she did not regret the decision, which was reached after “a lot of soul searching”.
“These children are not UK children and we were not aware of the foster parents having strong political views. There are some strong views in the UKIP party and we have to think of the future of the children.”
She added during an interview with BBC Radio 4’s Today: “I have to look at the children’s cultural and ethnic needs.
“I have legal advice I have to follow for the placement of children and I was criticised before for not making sure their cultural and ethnic needs were met.
“If the party mantra is, for example, ending the active promotion of multiculturalism I have to think about that… I have to think of their longer-term needs.
We won’t be having that problem here so much anymore as the Obama economy is so dead that any Spanish speaking Furinur will think twice about crossing the border to find work here anymore. Hell, the unemployment rate in Mexico alone is 3 point lower than ours. And I can just imagine how many new jobs the ACA is going to create outside of federal ones,AKA NONE.
Glory be the day I tell ya,Glory be the day.
