Recently I wrote about the Tucson Unified School District, where the powers-that-be decided that punishment should be meted out based on racial quotas. And during the last couple of days I posted videos of British citizens being punished for expressing politically incorrect ideas (one couple ran afoul of the "law," to use the term loosely, because they had the temerity to debate religion with a Moslem). Now there is another story out of the U.K. that's in the same vein. It concerns a school named Ridgeway, a place in which the administrators were so afraid of being branded "racists" (among the other psychological problems with which they, being thoroughly modern liberals, are no doubt afflicted) that they refused to hold minority students accountable for misbehavior. What was the result?
A gang of Pakistani students who became so brazen that they graduated from adolescent misbehavior to the criminal variety, beating a white student to within an inch of his life.
The victim is named Henry Webster, and the Daily Mail reports on his ordeal, writing:
Instead of preparing for college or university, he has been left with learning difficulties, short-term memory loss, and epilepsy. Henry will settle for that because the alternative would have meant not being here at all.
This is the only upside of being attacked with a claw hammer that left an inch-deep impression on his skull.
One claw hammer and 12 teenage thugs versus one young man. Those were the odds when a gang of Asian youths ambushed him.
After their work was done, his attackers punched the air in triumph - 'that's what you call Paki bashing,' they yelled.
Given that the school was guilty of grave sins of omission that facilitated this brutal attack, its administrators would have to now see the light, right? Well, read the comments of Ridgeway's headmaster, Steven Colledge, and tell me what you think. The Mail writes:
'I think there is always a danger where there is a mixture of races and peoples which reflect the community we live in that any tension that might exist, any little scuffle or fight, can be twisted to be much more of a major thing than it really is,' he [Colledge] told the cameras.
No, this is not a misquotation. He really did use the words 'little scuffle' to describe the attack in which Henry Webster was left brain damaged.
Furthermore, in the immediate aftermath, neither the 'outstanding' Mr Colledge nor any of his colleagues visited the Webster family or even sent a get well card. Mr Colledge later told a governors' inquiry that gestures such as sending cards or flowers 'were not in his nature'.
Leftists are not only completely lacking in anything approximating true compassion, they are, to be blunt, defective people. They really won't perceive reality until a jackboot comes down on their necks.
I strongly recommend that you read the whole Daily Mail piece. It's a good example of what lies in store for us Americans unless we can right the cultural ship.
