If you’ve ever wondered what the ultimate result of developing a politically-correct culture would be, just take a look at Britain, who allows refugees by the boatloads to come and take residence in their nation, no matter where they’re from and dares not speak out against the exploding Muslim population due to fear of “offending” them.
Some teachers in Britain have become too scared to teach their students about what happened on 9/11, fearing they’ll receive backlash from Muslims offended by the fact extremists in their religion carried out a terror attack in Allah’s name.
The Telegraph is reporting, Kamal Hanif OBE, who was appointed by the Government to turn around three schools at the heart of the “Trojan Horse” scandal, said that some teachers have a “misplaced” concern that they will cause offence if they raise 9/11 in the classroom.
He said that some teachers – particularly those who work in schools with a high proportion of Muslim students – see it as a contentious topic and shy away from teaching it.
“Teachers sometimes have a fear that this might be controversial,” he said.
“[They think] if we teach about this we might get Muslim parents objecting.”
His comments come ahead of the 16th anniversary of 9/11, which saw 2,997 killed when Al-Qaeda launched a series of coordinated terrorist attacks after hijacking planes and crashing them into the World Trade Centre complex and the Pentagon.
This is a perfect example of liberalism attempting to erase the past in order to make one particular group of people feel better about themselves.
It’s exactly what conservatives here have warned about when discussing the removal of Confederate statues and the attempt by the left to sanitize history.
Sure, they claim that’s not what they are trying to do, but it’s likely Britain didn’t intend to do that either, yet that was the inevitable outcome.
We can’t wash away history or the evil that occurs at the hands of human beings just to make people feel good or less offended. People of every group have done something awful at one point in history, so that’s impossible.
Plus, history is how we remember mistakes that were made and learn to avoid repeating them. It’s a valuable guide for ensuring the survival of our way of life.
If only the left would understand this.
