Michael Gove backs Marxist Cultural Indoctrination and Islam in our Schools
Written by Tim Heydon
Michael Gove, the Education Minister has given new powers to School Heads to make it easy to sack teachers with ‘Extremist Beliefs'. Teachers will face the axe if they stage lessons that undermine ‘fundamental’ British values. This move is aimed at members of the BNP and, bracketed with them, those who hold ‘extremist’ islamic beliefs. People who are members of the BNP are, Gove claims, unfit to ‘shape young minds’.
Is Gove morally superior to the Parents and Grandparents of the Nation?
As one who went to school in an era when almost all teachers, as well as the population at large, held views very like those of the BNP, if less moderate in some cases, I find Gove’s attititudes offensive in the extreme. Contemplating Mr Gove and his colleagues in this Government, I see nothing about them that leads me to think that any of them is the moral superior of the generation that fought the Nazis and saved their country from invasion in Word War II, or of those like them in earlier generations whose struggles and glittering achievements have given all of their descendents everything they are and everything they have. On the contrary, it seems to be no great coincidence that this country is experiencing its most precipitous decline morally, socially and in other associated ways in two millennia whilst he and his like have been in charge of it.
Only an Ignoramus or a Liar would describe the BNP as ‘Extreme’
Gove’s offensiveness is compounded by his bracketing the BNP with ‘extremist Islamic beliefs’. The word extreme can only be accurately applied to those whose minority opinions are at some distance from those of a majority on a spectrum of attitudes. By this criterion there is nothing extreme about the BNP. On the contrary, the BNP’s views on race, immigration and related matters are vastly more in tune with those of the general population than are those of the Conservative Party, David Cameron and the rest of the political class. We know from the rising public clamour about the current levels of immigration and recent opinion Polls (and many others down the years) that most of the population fundamentally agree with the BNP on these matters.
Opinion Polls Back BNP Policies
According to a YouGov opinion poll commissioned by Sky News in early 2005, nearly 6 out of 10 of the 1841 people questioned thought that that all further immigration into the UK should be halted. More than half of those surveyed thought that all immigrants should be denied the right to bring further members of their family into the country. The average level of support for these measures was 55%. Thus a majority of the people in the country agreed with what were and are BNP policies, even though they did not vote for the Party.
More recently, on 26th February 2011 the ‘Guardian’ reported that a Populus poll commissioned by the Marxist-backed ‘Searchlight’ organisation revealed that there would be ‘huge support’ for what was described as the the ‘far right’ if its image was improved. This level of support could, the Guardian said, ‘outstrip that in France or Holland’ The BNP is not extreme. It is mainstream. If anything, it is Tory Left Liberalism which is ‘extreme’.
Bracketing the BNP with Islam is an Evil Smear
To suggest that the BNP should be bracketed with ‘extreme’ Moslems who kill innocents to further their religious/ political aim of imposing Islam is an evil, politically motivated smear. But the PC division by Gove and those like him of islam from islamism or those holding ‘extreme Islamic beliefs’ is invidious.
There are no such beings as ‘moderate moslems’. Since the Qur’an is said to be the actual word of God and as the Qur’an clearly states (Surah 2:2) that there can be no doubting its plain meaning, there is little or no room for ‘liberal’ interpretation. Those moslems who do not carry out its requirements, for example as regards hostility to non –believers, are not ‘moderates’. They are merely non-practicing, much as in the polar opposite, Christians who do not ‘turn the other cheek’ are non-practicing.
There are too, many, many millions of moslems in the third world who are not in a position to practice the hostile injunctions of Islam /or do not have a tradition of it simply because they have been far removed from non-believers in any numbers. Being non-practicing is not the same as being ‘moderate’. We are however seeing an islamic reaction set in, even in these previously remote Islamic societies as Western secular attitudes reach into them by means of technology and greater mobility.
The BBC and a Typical Culturally Marxist View of Sharia
‘’All aspects of a Muslim's life are governed by Sharia. Sharia law comes from a combination of sources including the Qur'an (the Muslim holy book), the Hadith (sayings and conduct of the prophet Muhammad) and fatwas (the rulings of Islamic scholars).
Many people, including Muslims, misunderstand Sharia. It's often associated with the amputation of limbs, death by stoning, lashes and other medieval punishments. Because of this, it is sometimes thought of as draconian. Some people in the West view Sharia as archaic and unfair social ideas that are imposed upon people who live in Sharia-controlled countries.’’
There is no fundamental misunderstanding of Shariah. It really is as medieval as many People think it is
But as Robert Spencer remarks about Sharia in a recent edition of the American Conservative Magazine ‘Human Events’, the 9/11 terrrorists explicitly stated that they were doing exactly what the Qur’an told them’. And so they were. Spencer also pointed out that:
The fundamental British values which Gove claims are at risk from teachers who are BNP members include ‘the rule of law, democracy and individual liberty.’ None of these is at risk from the BNP. The BNP believes in democracy, the rule of law and as much personal autonomy as is commensurate with a decently functioning society - indeed, the kind of level of autonomy this country enjoyed before the cultural marxist extremists got their hands on it. The BNP also believes in the most important British values of all: freedom of association and freedom of speech, both of which seem to rank low on Gove’s scale of priorities or to be non-existent in it.
Cultural Marxism given a Free Hand by Gove
All of these ’fundamental British values’ have their origin in Western Christianity as clarified by its Enlightenment and mediated by the character of the indigenous people of this country. In Gove’s classrooms will it be allowable to teach this truth or will it be concealed, ie lied about, in the interests of ‘equality’ and ‘race relations’?
And will it be permitted to criticise those civilisation such as that of Islam where these fundamental values are noticeable only by their absence? And will it be also be allowable to criticise the barbarities of that religion such as are listed by Robert Spencer above?
