British School Threatens to Label Students ‘Racists’ Unless They Attend Islam Field Trip

British citizens are up in arms at a British primary school that has threatened to label kids as “racists” for years on their public school record if they refuse to attend a field trip meant to push Islam on kids. This is a sick example of multiculturalism by force, apparently.

Letter sent home to parents.

Lynn Small, headmistress at Littleton Green Community School in Huntington, Staffordshire UK, sent a letter home with kids informing parents that if their kids were withheld from a special workshop meant to push Islam a “racial discrimination note” would be attached to their permanent school record and they’d be branded racists for years to come.

The kids are in what we would call a grade school here in the USA in a school that serves kids from 8-years to 11.

The headmistress’ letter says the field trip is part of a “statutory requirement” for kids “to learn about different cultures.”

“The workshop is at Staffordshire University and will give your child the opportunity to explore other religions,” administrator Small ominously said. “Children will be looking at religious artefacts, similar to those that would be on display in a museum. They will not be partaking in any religious practices.”

“Refusal to allow your child to attend this trip will result in a Racial Discrimination note being attached to your child’s education record, which will remain on this file throughout their career,” Small explained in her best jackbooted demeanor.

On top of all those threats, parents are then informed that they have to pay an extra fee for their kids to go on the field trip.

Fortunately, the outrage from parents was enough that government officials got involved and told this jackbooted school boss to retract her threats. Small sent a second letter pleading for parents to disregard her previous missive.

If there was any real justice in England she would have been fired, too.

      Guess you didn’t hear about the teacher from the Oprah handbook.

      “If you are a white male, you don’t deserve to live. You are a cancer,
      you’re a disease, white males have never contributed anything positive to the world! They only murder, exploit and oppress non-whites! At least a white woman can have sex with a black man and make a
      brown baby but what can a white male do? He’s good for nothing. Slavery, genocides against aboriginal peoples and massive land confiscation, the inquisition, the holocaust, white males are all to blame! You maintain your white male privilege only by oppressing, discriminating against and enslaving others!”

      Professor Noel Ignatiev, a tenured professor at Massachusetts College loudly proclaimed to his class last Monday, his final teaching
      day before retirement

      I guess a white man can’t have sex with a black woman and make a brown baby. Nope. All white men have to die. I am sure that Oprah is smiling.

      The following youtube is the professor speaking to an Occupy Boston crowd. Chico would be so proud after all he is a proud Occupy Fan.

      • jim_m

        Yeah, I’ve seen that. The left is always advocating mass murder and making heroes out of those who commit mass murder.

      • Commander_Chico

        I guess a white man can’t have sex with a black woman . . .

        We know that’s not true, right, RM?

        • Given your posting record, I’m surprised at your apparent misunderstanding of an obvious facetious statement.

          • Retired military

            Chico is referring to my daughter who is biracial. He is walking on very dangerous ground.

          • Commander_Chico

            Hey, I’m all in favor of it.

            Best wishes to your daughter – hope she doesn’t run into any racism.

          • jim_m

            You probably should avoid the creepy responses when referring to someone’s family members.

            [edit] and so I now see you’ve edited your comment to say something nice about RM’s daughter in an attempt to not be so creepy.

  • LiberalNightmare

    Oprah is a teacher too? How does she find the time?

  • jim_m

    “Small”, what an appropriate name for a woman who would blight a young child’s future in order to advance her ideological agenda.

  • Lawrence Westlake

    Trafalgar. India. The Sudan. Lord Kitchener and the Boer Wars. T.E. Lawrence. The Marne. The Somme. The Mandate. The Blitz. D-Day. Suez ’56. Now? This. Britain is an effeminate shell of its former self. It boggles the mind. Leftism is a virulent cancer that not only destroys educations, job markets and economies it destroys entire nations. Destroys national histories. Destroys everything with which it comes into contact. The real scary thing is that in 20 years if not sooner the USA will be Britain, but with far higher crime rates, far worse racial strife and far larger unassimilated underclasses. Political choices have grave ripple effects and those choices, in the ghastliest irony of them all, certainly include that of staying home and not voting.

      Time to go Larry.

      I know I’m going to get hammered as a “troll” but I have to ask, why does LW always get down graded? I agree about 95% of the time with him, on those things I have seen him post, and he’s usually spot on, so why always so much distaste for his opinions?

      • Commander_Chico

        Once in awhile he gives them the “Put down the Glenn Beck crack pipe” thing.

        Aside from that, he says the same thing as most commenters here, but they feel jilted because he’s one-and-done and doesn’t reply to their comments.

        • Alpha_Male

          Even though it’s a polar opposite of LW and I disagree with you about 95% of the time I get the feeling your probably spot on with this. Thanks for the clarification mate!

          • Retired military

            Imagine talking to someone and they agree with you 95% of the time. But every time they agree with you they poke you in the eye with a sharp stick.
            That is the effect of LW posts.
            He uses words that I have to look up and where as I am not a genius by any stretch of the imagination I have about 15 years of college and a 130+ IQ. No he doesn’t make me feel inferior at all. He simply uses words that no one would use in normal daily conversation during ten lifetimes. I find folks that do this suffer from a lack of self worth themselves and they want to impress folks with their vocabulary.

            To top it off, it is debatable that he actually writes the stuff or if it is simply some computer generated garbage that he copies and pastes.

          • jim_m

            Superior intelligence is not found in an extensive vocabulary but in the ability to make one’s self understood simply and clearly.

          • LiberalNightmare

            I still think that he’s a chat-bot.

        • About every third post there at first.

      • jim_m

        Because Larry is a troll. Because he delivers long, incoherent rants that generally denigrate conservative politics and the United States in general. He refuse to engage and debate his position. And, while he is producing epic length rants with no paragraphs he manages to come off both as pedantic and ignorant, (not a simple task).

        [edit] and if you think that larry is ‘spot on’ then you have a great deal to learn. Take for instance his listing of historical events and people at the beginning of his rant above. Is that supposed to be a list of great accomplishments of the Empire or of failures? They are not all one or the other. He makes lists like that to create the impression of intelligence without actually having to make any sense.

        What I object to most from him is the pose that he is someone who knows better than anyone else here. We have a lot of very intelligent and very experienced people here. He is not amongst their number.

        • Alpha_Male

          Why the downgrade? I’ve been reading Wizbang for a couple of years now and stop in daily to read the topics of interest. I just point out that I usually enjoy WL’s take on many things; voter apathy, liberal doctrine, multiculturalisms effect on the American culture. I enjoy his jabs at the Leonidas like bravery of anonymous internet warriors and his distaste for the talking heads who sit in their mega mansions spending 3 hours a day schlepping their new book, just seems spot on and thus my curiosity.

          I know you could spend 4 paragraphs eviscerating me in a lawyer-esque soliloquy on a how big an idiot I am, time you thankfully won’t waste on a troll but it’s kind of scary when a bloke gets hammered for questioning established doctrine of selected posters, especially when said fellow agrees with the blog, its contributors and posters in an almost universal unanimity.

          • jim_m

            Enjoy him if you like. Many others do not. I think you are missing a lot of his comments if you think that Larry agrees with the articles on Wizbang. For the most part he is critical of the articles and the commenters. He critiques most articles as either “retarded” or the result of “smoking Glenn Beck’s crack pipe”.

            I strongly suggest that you pay attention to what he actually says and to stop allowing yourself to be fooled by his self congratulatory tone.

          • Alpha_Male

            Perhaps your right, I think a lot of it has to do with the different educational cultures we come from, he reminds me of some profs. that I had and agree with, from University days. Perhaps I just know on a basic level the events he’s referring to and can make and identify with the cultural references. I appreciate you taking the time to clarify and make points, I would just ask that some of the overzealous posters make a point of realizing that many people, from different backgrounds, read and enjoy your blog, not all of us are left-wing, socialist loving trolls. lol

            Now back to my cave!

          • Scalia

            To quickly chime in, I find him irritating at best because he often derides a post’s author and those who may agree that the topic thereof is worthy of discussion. If he doesn’t like a topic, he can simply ignore it, but that’s not what he does. He’s got to comment on how silly he finds the topic to be and how everybody is stupid who disagrees with him.

            I wouldn’t mind his hit-and-run tactics if he simply posted his opinion. It’s his name-calling that I find most irritating.

          • Walter_Cronanty

            You’re right. Generally, he starts off denigrating the intelligence of the author of the post and/or stating the post is retarded. Then he proceeds to agree with the point of the post, while insulting anyone and everyone in the porcess in an incoherent, paragraph-challenged rant. Then he leaves.
            I’ve actually up-dinged him a couple of times when he didn’t follow his usual format, but not often.

          • Retired military

            “I know you could spend 4 paragraphs ”
            LW would do it in ONE VERY LONG paragraph.

      • LiberalNightmare

        I don’t see what the problem is, if you like his post – vote it up. Problem solved.

  • Commander_Chico

    The Brits don’t have a Constitution. Their government does things that would shock Americans. Anti-social behaviour orders (ASBOs) and their hate speech laws come to mind. This is another example.

    • jim_m

      This is true. A few years back they imprisoned a retiree for having the nerve to protect himself against a home invader.

    • More accurately, we have a written Constitution which explicitly grants the Federal Government with certain powers while retaining those powers not explicitly granted to the States and the People as the unwritten nature of the English Constitution rendered it a more “living” document than our Founding Fathers found tolerable to the rights of the People.

      • Commander_Chico

        Yeah, I think an “unwritten Constitution” isn’t a constitution at all. If you don’t have a text, what can you interpret and agree on?

        Like building on sand instead of rock.

        • Playing ‘Calvinball’, if you remember the Calvin and Hobbes strips. Nothing is solid, everything is temporary.

          Hell of a thing to try to build a legal or government system on… when everything is subject to change at any time, how do you plan for the future?

          I think Glenn Reynolds hit it solidly – talking about the ‘managers’ of Obamacare in particular but hitting politicians in general…

          But they come from a background — law and politics — where arguments often take the place of reality, and plausibility can be as good as, or better than, truth.

          What engineers know that lawyers and politicians often don’t is that in the world of things, as opposed to people, there’s no escaping the sharp teeth of reality. But in law, and especially politics, inconvenient facts are merely inconvenient, something to be rationalized away.”

          When you’ve been trained to see words and arguments as the only ‘reality’, so to speak, and have learned that the ‘reality’ you deal with is infinitely malleable – it’s not surprising to find they think that actual physical Reality is just as prone to such manipulation.

          And when it’s not – well, Reality is what’s at fault.

          • Commander_Chico

            The world of law will always be the world of words. Words do matter, and they have to be a precisely defined as possible.

          • Words are important in our perception of reality – but they’re not reality in itself.

            Reality isn’t affected by words, or our definition of it.

      • Walter_Cronanty

        I think that’s one of the “transformative” changes Barry wants to make, isn’t it? We need to “break free” from that dreadful, dusty, time-worn scrap of paper authored by a bunch of dead white guys:

        “In sum, Obama views the Constitution as a flawed document from which we must “break free.” We need, instead, a “living” Constitution that refocuses from “negative rights” to requiring income redistribution from the Haves to provide “positive economic rights” to the Have Nots.”
