Political “correctness” gone awry: coming to the U.S.?

Whither goest Great Britain, so goest the United States?

Great Britain is increasingly becoming a small laboratory of extremist socialist engineering, a microcosm of where the liberal Democrats here want this country to go.  Think about it: welfare, single payer medicine, immigration, gun control, taxation and political correctness.  A Democrat’s utopia.  Now think about how this has all gone awry by going to its illogical extremes: a huge welfare state of government dependent families (including recent student riots when the tuition goes up), the reported horrors of mismanagement, large cuts and poor care in their hospitals, an immigration problem that has spawned self-segregating communities and partial implementation (or at least acceptance) of Sharia law, a disarmed society where criminals have more rights than non-criminals, a huge income tax rate with an enormous VAT piled on top of it, and extremes of political correctness, the latter on which I wish to comment.

Recently, The UK Mail reported how children as young as those in nursery school (around 3 years old) are “put on record for so-called hate crimes such as using the word ‘gaylord’.”   Further, “One youngster was accused of being racist for calling a boy ‘broccoli head’ and another was said to be homophobic for telling a teacher ‘this work is gay’.  Two primary school children were reported for homophobia after quarrelling over a rubber and calling each other ‘gay’  and ‘lesbian’.”  In other words, name calling.

Here is the best part:

In total, 34,000 nursery, primary and secondary pupils were effectively classed as bigots because of anti-bullying rules.

The school can keep the pupil’s name and ‘crime’ on file.

The record can be passed from primaries to secondaries or when a pupil moves between schools.

And if schools are asked for a pupil reference by a future employer or a university, the record could be used as the basis for it, meaning the pettiest of incidents has the potential to blight a child for life.  (emphasis mine)

Nice, huh?  And you thought those stories of a mark on your “permanent record” were just a myth.  You expect this sort of stuff in oppressive societies like China, Cuba or the old Soviet Union, but Great Britain?  Apparently so.

At what point does reporting of political correctness violations veer into the beginning s of a police state?  When does the British equivalent of the Dept. of Children and Families start seizing children to “save” them from households the government deems “unsafe” or “detrimental to the children”?  How long before the government uses the kids to squeal on the parents?

The big question: how long before this trickles down to this country?  How much of this is currently happening but remains (as yet) unreported by a complicit media?

Is it still a conspiracy theory when you see the trends in our country and see it actually happening in a close ally?  Remember who is in control of the educational system in this country.
