politically correct school removes certain books to win race equality award. not a joke.

Happened on this a few days ago and just now getting to it to post.  Just shows what spineless frackin idiots are at work and play being all kinds of diverse and liberal , blah,blah so on and so forth. Libtards.  Hate the swine. No wait. That’s us. Conservatives are more liberal than the ones called that if you think about it. I haven’t heard of any conservative calling for any sort of book ban cos some words are ... no longer in favor or might be misunderstood or might cause offense to one person. Or even a group. But I especially can not envision our side doing this just to win,
you hafta get ready for this.

To win a race equality award

Think it’s a joke?  I might have 25 years ago but ... take a look at this.

A PRIMARY school has banned Enid Blyton books so that it qualified for a race equality award.

The much-loved children’s classics were cleared from shelves because they contain ‘inappropriate racial stereotypes’.
Action was taken so that Huncoat Primary School near Accrington, Lancashire, would gain a Race Equality Mark from the local authority prior to opening a new library, officials said.

Headteacher Sean Crosier said: ‘We checked all our books. Some contained references that reflected outdated attitudes.’
These included mention of gipsies and golliwogs, a source said.

Blyton, who died in 1968, wrote some 800 books. They have been translated into nearly 90 languages and sold more than 600million copies worldwide.

One of her best-known characters is Noddy, although her greatest output involved adventure books such as The Famous Five and The Secret Seven.
Many contained references that were commonplace at the time but were later deemed racist, sexist or anti-Semitic and subsequently cut or altered. Despite this, Blyton’s books sold nearly eight million copies between 2000 and 2010 and she was voted Britain’s best-loved author in the 2008 Costa Book Awards.

Huncoat deputy head Phil Clarke said some of the books that had been taken from the school library had been replaced with updated versions.

‘It’s about making sure children have a fair representation of different ethnic groups,’ he said.

Well what they did was slightly different in that they removed the ones that were not politically correct and replaced what they could with “updated” versions that reflect our times.
In other words ... mealy mouthed pc bullshit and all done for the kiddies so they can grow up perfect smug know it all lefties who will seek out things to be offended by on behalf of people they have never met and do not know. 

Yeah ... carbon copies of their teachers.

oh yeah. And god forbid a book should “mention gypsies” even though those vermin are in the news daily these days. And not for reasons that will make anyone happy.

Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
