Neo-Nazi Nappies?
Another step closer to the Sultinate of Englanobad

Here's this Orwellian news from The Daily Mail (London) in it's entirety; (Emphasis mine) Children as young as three should be reported for 'racism', Government-funded group claims

Nursery teachers should inform on youngsters such as these if there is a 'racist incident', says a Government-funded advisory group. Toddlers should be taught about racism and singled out for criticism if they have racist attitudes, a Government-funded advisory group said yesterday.

It told nursery teachers, playgroup leaders and childminders to record and report every racist incident involving children as young as three. These could include saying 'Yuk' about unfamiliar food.

Even babies should not be ignored in the hunt for racism because they can 'recognise different people in their lives', a new guide for nurseries and child care centres said.

The instructions for staff in charge of pre-school children in day care have been produced by the National Children's Bureau, which receives £12million a year, mostly through taxpayer-funded organisations.

The NCB, which describes itself as 'an umbrella body for the children's sector', has long used its resources to campaign on controversial issues, for example in favour of a legal ban on smacking by parents. It also runs the Sex Education Forum, a campaign for more sex education in schools.

The new 366-page guide, Young Children and Racial Justice, warned that 'racist incidents among children in early years settings-tend to be around name-calling-casual thoughtless comments, and peer group relationships'. It said such incidents could include children using words like 'blackie', 'Pakis', 'those people' or 'they smell'.

Children might also 'react negatively to a culinary tradition other than their own by saying "yuk".'

Nursery staff are told: 'No racist incident should be ignored. When there is a clear racist intent, it is necessary to be specific in condemning the action.'

If children 'reveal negative attitudes the lack of censure may indicate to the child that there is nothing unacceptable about such attitudes'. Nurseries are encouraged to report as many racist incidents as possible to local councils.

'Some people think that if a large number of racist incidents are reported, this will reflect badly on the institution,' it said. 'In fact, the opposite is the case.'

The guidance said that anyone who disagrees is racist themselves.

It also suggests cultivating the home languages of new immigrants - despite Government anxiety to promote the learning of English. It said: 'English is now viewed as the major language of the world but this is not because it has any innate linguistic advantages - it is because English is the language of power in a world dominated by English-speaking peoples.'

Critics of the race programme for pre- school children labelled it 'totalitarian'.

Author and researcher on family life Patricia Morgan said: 'Stepping in to stop severe bullying is one thing, but this is interference in the lives of children. It smacks of totalitarianism.

'It is regulation of private speech and thought. They intend nursery staff to step into children's playground squabbles and then report them to the local council as race incidents. Who would ever have thought that the anti-racism crusade would go so far?'

Case Study

Judge Jonathan Finestein ordered the local authority to review its decision to prosecute

A boy of ten has already been taken to court for calling a mixed race 11-year-old 'Paki' and 'Bin Laden' in a school playground argument.

The pair subsequently made up and became friends again, yet the Crown Prosecution Service decided to go ahead because the victim's mother made a complaint.

The ten- year- old eventually appeared at Salford Youth Court in 2006 where he denied a racially motivated offence under the Public Order Act of using threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour with intent to cause another person harm or distress.

But District Judge Jonathan Finestein ordered the authorities to review their decision to prosecute.

He said of the defendant: 'I shouldn't think he understands Bin Laden or Al Qaeda. I'm not condoning what he supposedly said but there must be other ways of dealing with this apart from criminal prosecution.'

Prosecutors later decided not to pursue the case.

Oh my. I am so grateful that I homeschool. Yes, if kids say cruel things, teachers should step in. But little kids are sometimes brutally honest without meaning to be cruel. It is unPC to say, but some new immigrants do have a different standard of cleanliness then we do in the west and I could see a child in a classroom setting observing innocently that 'they smell."

Also, kids often say that food is yucky without having any racist intent. This whole article smacks of thought control in the name of tolerance.

What is worse is that I don't think that this will make children less racist just more likely to simmer with anger.

Another reason to be a stay at home mom and homeschool your kids!

Wow, this is really freaky.

LOL!, Those English, lol...although I know that their consciences are developing at that age. I don't think they're quite able to tell right from wrong (well the majority)

There's more here than meets the eyes, I'm afraid. Paul Ennals is cheif executive of this NCB; he is a member of DFES Stakeholder's Board. If anyone can tell me what this DFES really is, I'd like to hear about it. All I can find is nothing but gibberish, ambiguous posts concerning this DFES and what they do, exactly. In my opinion, (may not be much) the children are being used for the purpose of others rather than for their "genuine well-being." There is a force out there who wants our children. And it's not a pretty picture.

This line says it all, to me: "The guidance said that anyone who disagrees is racist themselves."

The same people who want to redefine marriage as "anything goes" have successfully redefined dialogue as "the verbal action between two parties where Party A says 'this is how it's going to be' and Party B responds 'I obey.' Regardless who Party A is, Party B is always you."
