Send Your Youngster to Islam Workshop or We Will Mark Him as Racist for Life

A school has planned a field trip to an Islam workshop for student ages eight to eleven. Some parents might have been resistant to the idea. They received a letter from the school explaining the workshop and also explaining how the school would do its best to screw up the life of the child for the rest of his life if they did not permit him or her to attend.

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.

The Daily Caller reports:

The headmistress at a primary school in a small town in England tried to order parents to send their children to a Nov. 27 workshop focused on Islam or else have the kids permanently labeled as racists for the rest of their academic careers.

On Wednesday, parents of children aged 8 to 11 received the stark warning in the form of a letter from Lynn Small, the headmistress at Littleton Green Community School in Huntington, Staffordshire — just over 20 miles from Birmingham.

The letter describes the field trip as 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,” Small pedantically explains. “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.”

It is pretty interesting to me that the children themselves are not the ones making the decision. Yet the headmistress has no problem branding them on the official documents for life. The children get punished for the “sin” of the parent.

Furthermore, if anyone calls in sick or gives some other excuse for their children to skip school that day, she promises to investigate the absence to make sure it isn’t a cover story.

In the movie V, Brits can be punished for possessing a Koran. In real life they can be punished for not exposing their children to one. This isn’t dystopian fiction. It is really happening.

The story does end reasonably well. After the intense responses from parents, local government officials intervened and forced Small to apologize for her threatening letter.

But the story hasn’t ended yet. Those control freaks are always pursuing power. Someday there will be enough of them in places of power that the headmistress will not be stopped.

And you know there are people who will do the same to Americans.

Note also the tools that are used. As more institutions keep permanent records about US citizens they gain the power to ruin reputations and brand someone for life. If we want to limit this kind of abuse we need to work to eliminate these record-keeping institutions as much as possible.

Finally, it is perfectly obvious that this kind of naked coercion and bullying is going to do more to promote racism than to counteract it. If people find they are labeled “racist” for not wanting to expose their child to a religion (which could simply mean they are atheists or Christians or some other non-Muslim), then racism will stop being regarded as a big deal.

    count me a racist, Because if they tried to teach my child islam I would pull them out of school so fast Obama would probably turn so fast that Hillarys nose would go right up his end

  • Donald York

    ISLAM is not a race! It’s an ideology!!!! Do not insult our intelligence.

  • Kenneth Duncan

    And then I would sue the school for being racist against my child because of my decision as a parent.

  • f8tule

    So evil is now a culture???

    How do you brand someone a racist for something that is not racist..

    Stupidity at it’s worst

  • Don Williams

    Make my day and just try doing it here. I’m looking for a reason to play a knock out game with some of our socialist educators

  • Charlene Nash

    I would withdraw my child from that school, plus a band of parents should demand that muslims attend christian workshop or be racist

  • standtallall

    Methinks a law suit against these twerps for threats to my child’s welfare and future would go a long way to weed out these low life administrators. Why would this be consider racial anyway? Isn’t Muslim religion just that, a religion? England better check out some of their old laws and address the loney fringe.

  • Carol

    Since when is this part of any curriculum? How crazy have educators become? IF they can NOT teach only what is important to the education of are children than FIRE THEM ALL. Teachers with a half of a brain should be against this and stand up to the district and get parents involved. No more teachings of other countries! IF the parents of our children wanted their children to learn this and possibly live by it then they could move to another country of their choice and leave us only. We have grown to become the greatest country on the face of the earth without it and we do not need any of it now!

    In England the people are sick of the Muslims but they have literally been allowed to do as they damn well please all over the country. This mess is exactly what is happening here under our noises. In the school systems now in America there are parents who will do absolutely anything and pay any amount to get their child into the right pre school in order for the kid to later get into the right college. This is exactly what that head mistress is advising about. Follow the rules like a good little sheep and all will be well. Disobey and your child is doomed to fail.

    As I understand it, Islam is a world-wide religion with practioners in countries as divergent as Indonesia, The United States, Iran, England, Russia, representing races of every color, White, Yellow, Brown, Black, etc. How on earth, then, could someone who chose to not have their child attend a program about a world-wide religion be labeled “Racist”? Just a question.

  • servant1jkb

    OH YES? The” WAR on Women”, the Left is forever accusing the right is fighting, THEN WHY are all on the Left, so full of pushing Islam, who truly fight a war on women, who rank behind the man’s camels?
    Please think IF you are still able to do so independently!
    I am not now, nor have ever been P.C. then again I am but NOT as you think I am PRO- Christ!

    My guess is that most of the sheeple will comply to this utterBS! I wished that my child was in such a doctrination camp, boy would I have some fun!

  • Laurence Almand

    How about requiring Muslim children to study the Torah or the Bible? Can you imagine what would happen if a school did this? More two-faced double standards. These school administrators should be fired.

  • gwedem5995

    when are Americans going to do the right thing and quit backing down to this kind of garbage and all those atheists out there. We are still the majority.

  • andy french

    Stupid cow needs the crap beaten out of her!!! What a stupid woman.

  • doctorbob

    Where are the torches and pitchforks? Any school that would threaten to brand a child as “racist” for life, no longer deserves to be in business. They need to fire every decision-maker who made this idiotic decision. Then, run them out of town on a rail, wearing a coat of tar and feathers. Seriously. No kid of mine would ever attend a Muslim anything. And anyone who wants to brand me as a bad parent or a :racist: for wanting to protect my kids from Islam, come and do it within swinging distance of me when you make that decision.

  • kysteelgirl

    Sounds like something Obama would do….wonder who the fall guy would be when Obama explains “I didn’t know”

  • Robert N. Schick

    Islam is not a Race~~it’s a religion and a despicable, insane, evil one no doubt~`Islam sanctions child molesting and punishing non believers~~Proof of insanity is the butchering of the 25 year old military man in England by 2 Muslim fanatics ! They slaughter each other~~Sunni verses Shiite~~That’s the only redeeming thing about Satan’s spawn !

  • Kathy Allen

    Why can’t anyone understand that Islam is not a race?

    • http://maddogsez.blogspot.com/ MaDdD_dOGgG

      It’s also not a culture, or a religion.
