U.K. School Cancels Winston Churchill, J.K. Rowling for ‘Intolerance’

42

The article below illustrates in sharp and alarming terms the massive confidence trick with all of its concomitant duplicities being committed against us by the ingratiating but totalitarian and fascist Left.

Clearly, a committment to woke Identity Politics dulls its sense of contradiction.

If it were not for Winston Churchill, the hapless students at Seaford Head High School in East Sussex would be looking at a flag flying overhead with the swastika emblazoned on it as they goose-stepped their way into the classroom where their teacher, adorned with a Nazi armband, would be giving them lessons on the superiority of the Aryan race and how Attila the Hun was merely expressing his cultural norms. Criticism of Adolf Hitler would be a criminal offense and if they were discovered defacing or tearing down one of his many statues that were scattered about the country by then, they would be introduced to the Gestapo and never be seen or heard from again or, if they were really lucky, they would be carted off to a re-education camp of the sort the Democrats and the Left have in mind for everyone who voted for Donald Trump.

Andrew Roberts, whose illuminating biography of WSC I have read, has it right on this issue as does J.K. Rowling in her contretemps with wokeism with regard to the transexual community and her assertion that if one is in possession of two X chromosomes one is actually a woman regardless of how one wishes to disport oneself. Imagine that!

I’ll leave the last word on this vexed matter to Pete North, the British writer. I think his incisive observations apply to us in America just as much as they do to the British people:

“A country that no longer believes in its founding values and has no sense of self-worth will cave into virtually any passing political fad. If the nation is attacked politically or militarily, you then have a public that will stand aside and allow it.

“This is the oldest trick in the book. The Soviets knew it, the modern left knows it too. The communists played on the imperialism schtick then and now, while the modern left has long sought to associate nationalism of any kind with fascism and racism.

“Anti-racism, then, is a veneer for leftists who oppose the very idea of the nation state.”

North is rightly scathing about the Establishment’s complete failure to address the growing problem of this enemy within.

“Successive centrist administrations have failed to stand up to an increasingly feral activist media and a worryingly censorious academic establishment. Safe spaces, trigger warnings, de-platforming etc is nothing to do with progressive values and everything to do with delegitimising even moderate voices of disagreement. That’s the truly terrifying authoritarianism in the West. It goes against the fundamental values it was built on… freedom of speech and association, and equality under the law.

“Everything in the progressive agenda is aimed at dismantling nationhood, hence the creation of strains of victimhood according to gender and ethnicity.”

Nor — again correctly — does he have much time for the gullible white middle-class children willingly conspiring in their civilization’s destruction.

“The useful idiot white liberal youth who see themselves as righteous crusaders for the downtrodden minorities are doing the dirty work of communist agitators in what has become the largest global brainwashing operation of the 21st century.

“Once you’ve grasped these points, the true significance of those hard-left activists’ assault on those statues becomes clear. By destroying — or trying to destroy — those statues, what they are really trying to destroy is Britain’s sense of history and, by extension, its cohesive national identity……”

‘Woke Ignorance’: School Cancels Winston Churchill, J.K. Rowling for ‘Intolerance’

A secondary school in England has removed the names of Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling and British wartime leader Sir Winston Churchill from school houses after teenage students branded the famous Brits as “intolerant”.

Students at the Seaford Head School in East Sussex claimed Sir Winston — the man generally credited with marshalling the efforts to defeat the Nazis and routinely thought of as one of the greatest Britons ever– was a “figure who promoted racism and inequality, unfairly imprisoning and torturing many”. The school claimed that honouring him would go against the school’s policy against “intolerance and discrimination”.

The teenagers also took aim at J.K. Rowling, saying per The Telegraph: “We no longer think that JK Rowling is a suitable representative, because of her recent words about the trans community.”

The houses on the campus named after Nelson Mandela and Florence Nightengale escaped from the woke purge, however, and will remain unchanged.

The pressure from the students successfully forced the administrators at the school to remove the names from the houses, which will be renamed following a student body vote.

A spokeswoman for the school said: “The Student Leadership group decided to consult on the names of the four houses with a view to re-introducing house names that are rooted in the local community. This exercise involves all of the student body.”

The historical accuracy of the allegations against Sir Winston was derided by the author of Churchill: Walking with Destiny, Andrew Roberts who said: “Parents of children at Seaford School, and anyone considering sending their children there in future, need to know that the historical knowledge there is so abysmally low that the teachers believe that Winston Churchill committed crimes of which he was in fact entirely innocent.

“Instead of trying to combat woke ignorance, they have submitted to it without trying to discover the truth. Churchill is in fact an incredibly inspirational figure for youth,” Roberts added.

 

Britain’s wartime hero has increasingly become a target of the iconoclastic left in the United Kingdom, with his statue in Parliament Square in London being defaced last year by Black Lives Matter radicals who scrawled on the plinth: “Was a Racist” under his name.

Churchill’s former home was also placed on a BLM-inspired shame list produced by the National Trust for supposed ties to British colonialism.

Last year, J.K. Rowling also became a target of leftist witch mobs after writing that only women can menstruate and that: “If sex isn’t real, there’s no same-sex attraction. If sex isn’t real, the lived reality of women globally is erased.”

Following criticism from the president of the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Foundation, Rowling returned a 2019 award from the organisation, saying that the foundation “has stated that there is no conflict between the current radical trans rights movement and the rights of women.”

“The thousands of women who’ve got in touch with me disagree, and, like me, believe this clash of rights can only be resolved if more nuance is permitted in the debate,” Rowling said.
