British Liberals Are Crazy!

I read an interesting article today about our university’s saying that a bunch of Liberals think that we should send even idiots to these places, and massage their exam results to make sure they pass all their exams.

A student who complained about her poor marks for an essay said she had a statement of Special Educational Needs. The teacher was hauled before the university authorities to explain why he had marked her so low. ‘Because it was awful work, the work of a cretin,’ he replied. The teacher was chastised for not taking into account that the student had ‘special educational needs’.

So what this comes down to is that if we have someone with say, dyslexia or ADHD, which is ‘Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder’, then the teachers should make allowances for this condition and artificially boost the marks. If you fail an exam all you have to do is tell the teacher that you have either of these two conditions and he will bump up your marks so that you pass.

University’s are supposed to be for our brightest and most intelligent youth who will then go on the be leaders in various areas of industry, politics and science. It leads me to believe that these Liberals are stark raving mad, and if this continues then a university education will count for absolutely nothing.

It is easy to get one of these certificates from the Education Health and Care plan for a whole host of real or fictional disabilities, so you are assured of passing all your exams. From the information available, it seems middle-class parents have been desperately trying to get certificates proving that their brats are ‘dyslexic’ rather than stupid. Plenty of scientific evidence suggests that both dyslexia and its counterpart ADHD are now so over-diagnosed as to make both terms almost meaningless.

The Dunce Cap

The Dunce Cap

The liberals complain that kids who have an aptitude for examinations, intellectual thought or academic investigation should be sent to schools where these qualities are prized and nourished, and this includes university’s. Others, who have no such aptitude, should not be condemned to attend schools where there are rather fewer academic expectations.

Only our brightest students should have the right to attend university, but what they are doing now is opening the gates to even the dumb and thick who have no right to such an education with a medical excuse that will make sure they graduate. This will surely bring down the level of education for all.

These educational centres are supposed to be for the brightest of our youth and give them a chance to enter industry or science etc. and help the world progress, but these Liberals are undermining the future of our country. No longer will these areas be staffed by the brightest and best of our youth, but be dragged down until it all becomes meaningless.

All of this is an attempt to make everybody equal, but the effect will be to bring the whole country down until we become a nation of dunces. If a teacher has to spend a lot of time explaining certain things to those who are too thick to understand, then the more intelligent ones will be twiddling their thumbs for a while before the lesson can continue.

Exam Time

Exam Time

I cannot imagine what would happen to our country if all our scientists, entrepreneurs, politicians and future teachers are so dumb they cannot even add two and two. But if this plan goes ahead this is what we will become.

Gone will be the advances in computer technology, science and a hundred other areas where we are striving to make our world better. It will become normal for a university degree to be absolutely worthless, and many will suffer because of it.

Total Hypocricy

I was amazed to read today that a guest speaker at the Warwick University has been banned by the Students Union from speaking at a gathering because she may offend Muslims. The person in question is Maryam Namazie, who campaigns against Sharia law, and was invited to make a speech to the Warwick Atheists, Secularists and Humanist Society.

A spokesman for the union said: “The initial decision was made in deference to the right of Muslim students not to feel intimidated or discriminated against on their university campus rather than in the interests of suppressing free speech or freedom of expression.” Notice how they refer to the university as “‘their’ university campus”, as if it belongs to the Muslims! These people should be ashamed to call themselves British!

The lady in question is well known for her work with refugees and as a secular activist and is accused of being highly inflammatory in her speeches. She said, “They are basically labelling me a racist and an extremist for speaking out against Islam and Islamism. If people like me who fled an Islamist regime can’t speak out about my opposition to the far-right Islamic movement, if I can’t criticise Islam, that leaves very few options for me as a dissenter because the only thing I have is my freedom of expression. If anyone is inciting hatred, it’s the Islamists who are threatening people like me just for deciding we want to be atheist, just because we don’t want to toe the line.”

Ms. Namazie fled Iran along with her family in the 1980’s after the cultural revolution and has since been living in England. Personally I find this whole episode extremely distasteful when you consider that our universities regularly invite Muslim preachers to university campuses who preach sedition and hatred.

Many of the suicide bombers and other terrorist attacks in Europe and the USA have been committed by students who have succumbed to the preachings of these radical Muslim preachers in our universities. And yet, someone who is against the Islamic faith is not allowed to utter a word in such seminars for fear of ‘upsetting the Muslims’.

It is time the government stepped in and took control of such events because this appeasement of Muslims is getting ridiculous.

One Law For Them, Another For Us!

One Law For Them, Another For Us!

They are allowed to openly demonstrate on the streets of our cities and towns, and yet anyone of us who demonstrates against them is immediately arrested. They have been allowed to introduce their own barbaric Sharia Law in many of our cities and towns and yet the government does nothing.

It is time for the government to takes steps to outlaw these practices and allow free speech and British Law for everyone in the country and stop this appeasement of the Muslims. All these ‘holier than thou’ do-gooder organizations must be outlawed, and we must get out from under the ridiculous human rights laws from Europe to ensure that these laws are the same for EVERYBODY!

The Hidden Menace

Jihadi John

Jihadi John

Britain’s universities are being placed under the microscope after the unmasking of ‘Jihadi John’ as Mohammed Emwazi, a graduate of the University of Westminster in London. Once again the radicalization of Muslim students in such institutions is being questioned, and in my view not before time.

Jihadi John's Victims

Jihadi John’s Victims

It can now be proven that a third of all those convicted of terrorism offences in the UK over the last few years are university graduates, and ‘Jihadi John’ is the latest to come under scrutiny.  You will no doubt remember that he is the one who beheaded the western hostages on video that was broadcast around the world. Few will be able to forget these satanic images.

It is difficult for normal people to understand how any person could carry out a cold-blooded killing in such a manner and still be considered ‘human’. The shock and horror of his act sent shivers down many a spine.

A Vulnerable Seat Of Learning

A Vulnerable Seat Of Learning

But now in the aftermath people are taking a long hard look at our universities, for many young Muslims have been radicalized by visiting speakers who are known by the authorities but still invited to speak at seminars by university staff. If this is not exacerbating the problem I don’t know what is!

Westminster University said it was “shocked and sickened” by news that Emwazi had been named as the man in the black balaclava. However, since November 2011 the university has allowed 22 seminars addressed by external radical speakers.  In my view they should not be shocked at all, because it seems to me they are very much to blame for allowing these radical speakers on campus.

Seminar

Academics, free speech campaigners and some politicians have all put forward the motion that it is better to air the views of radicals and challenge them than to drive them underground. But the big problem seems to be that no-one is challenging them, for these so-called debates are really a platform for the visiting speaker to air his views without debate.

Speakers at Westminster have included members of Hizb ut-Tahrir, an organisation that advocates unifying Muslim countries into an Islamic caliphate (for that we should perhaps read Islamic State i.e. I.S.), and amazingly two students who were supporters of the group were elected as student representatives.

One commentator, Anthony Glees of the Centre for Security and Intelligence Studies at Buckingham University is reported to have said, “Under the camouflage of academic freedom and freedom of speech, we are giving opportunities to extremists to traipse around campuses delivering a message of hate.”

Extremist Cleric Haitham Al-Haddad

Extremist Cleric Haitham Al-Haddad

On the day that Emwazi was unmasked the university had approved a very controversial seminar with Islamic scholar Haitham al-Haddad who holds homophobic, sexist and anti-Semitic views. The meeting was cancelled because his presence on campus was opposed by thousands of students. The Islamic Society at Westminster said of the cancelled seminar, “it was not involved in any extremist activity” and denounced the “media fervour” that led to the cancellation of the controversial talk it had organised for that evening.

al-Haddad was invited as guest speaker by the university’s interfaith adviser Yusuf Kaplan, who it turned out had studied under al-Haddad. Kaplan refused to comment, however a university spokesman said there was a “robust policy” in place to assess the suitability of external speakers. Yea Right! With so many radicals preaching hatred and sedition in Britain’s universities I fail to see how anyone could say that in public without cringing.

There can be little doubt that the people who run our universities need to be heavily scrutinized for they are without doubt the guilty ones when it comes to sedition in our universities. They are the ones who freely allow, and often invite dangerous Muslim clerics onto campus to address seminars of Muslim students.

These academics, professors and university staff give everyone the old twaddle that “these people are vetted” before allowing them on campus, but it seems to me they don’t do it very well.

Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab - The Failed Underwear Bomber

Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab – The Failed Underwear Bomber

We are not talking about ‘Free Speech’ here, we are talking about allowing, and even encouraging, radical Muslim clerics to take advantage of impressionable youth to further their Jihadist cause. The proof is in recent history in that many ex-students have gone on to become suicide bombers like Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the Nigerian “Underpants Bomber” who tried to blow up a plane on the way to Detroit in 2009. He was also a Westminster University graduate.

To me, inviting such people to speak in a university seminar is akin to inviting the Devil to give the sermon during a church service. How can these so-called ‘learned men’ who grace the top levels of our universities be so naive  as to invite known radicals to preach to students? The mind boggles!

Blair’s Education Legacy Just Got Comical

Posted in Britain, Children, England, English Schools, Insanity, News, Parenting, Primary Education, Teens, UK with tags , , , , on 14/07/2014 by floroy1942
Yes We Know!  Education, Education, Education!

Yes We Know!
Education, Education, Education!

Ever since Tony Blair uttered the words “Education, Education, Education” and then proceeded to ‘dumb-down’ exam pass levels to make his League Tables look good, intelligent people have been waiting for the fallout. Well now sadly it’s here, and hilarious.

The Voice Of Business

The Voice Of Business

Today, employers are saying that our school leavers are unemployable because of their low education standards and are looking to immigrants to fill jobs requiring a reasonable standard. It is well known that many of today’s youth cannot read or write properly once they leave school, and of course teachers themselves have come under fire for failing children with their poor performance.

Well, I came across some snippets that just about put all this in perspective. Times Higher Education Magazine pointed out some of the amazing bloopers made by college students during exams. A lecturer from the University of Ulster sent in this answer from a student on the Earth’s ozone layer, and I quote: “the hole in the ozone layer was caused by assholes“. As the lecturer pointed out, he may have meant aerosols!

Another student answered a question on vehicle emissions by saying:  “in future all cars [will] be fitted with Catholic converters“.

A senior lecturer in psychology at Canterbury Christ Church University got this reply to a question in an exam: “Octopuses are intelligent because they have been found to be able to predict the winners of football matches during the World Cup.” This is a reference to Paul the Octopus who ‘predicted’ winners during the 2010 World Cup.

Even on the subject of the Second World War some youngsters get a bit tied up. One wrote in a history exam at the University of Hertfordshire: “Hitler’s role in the Second World War is often overlooked.

All of the above are from university students, but at the other end of the education scale things are not much better. Here are some examples from the lower end of education since Tony’s interference.

 

Hmm! I’ll have to think about that!

Maths

I thought all angels were cute!

Geography

So that’s where lap dancers come from!

Geography

The doctor has a cure for that!

History

So that’s why the Earth has no balls!

History 2

I hope she tasted good!

Science

They would be handy around the house if they could get through the door.

Religious Studies

Must be due to poor building techniques!

I am sure there are more humorous examples out there somewhere, but you have to admit. these are hilarious.

Considering that the first selection came from University students, it makes you wonder at the effectiveness of our education system.

We used to have a system that was the envy of the world, but sadly, after Tony Blair’s tinkering, and the loss of knowledgeable and effective teachers, it seems we have lost our way.

As you may expect, the ones that will suffer the most are the current generation of our youth, and their children. Many could well be doomed to low paid menial work because they do not have the knowledge or skills to get higher. Thanks Tony!

A sad indication of our times.

An American’s View Of America – An Astonishing Eye-opener!

Posted in America, Britain, Europe, Free Speech, Modern World, News, Obama, Politics, Teens, USA with tags , , on 06/09/2013 by floroy1942

We are often hearing from American’s that they belong to the greatest country on Earth, and from their point of view that may be true, but to hear an American tell the opposite is something you will hear seldom.

Jeff Daniels - A Man With A View.

Jeff Daniels – A Man With A View.

I received the following clip through the e-mail a week ago and thought it might interest a few people. The remarks were made by actor, musician and playwright Jeff Daniels at a college seminar I believe.

When the panel was asked by a student if they thought America was the greatest nation on Earth, his reply resulted in a stunned silence from not only the audience, but also the other two panel members, for several minutes while they stared at him with open mouths.

It is beyond doubt worth watching even just for the audience reaction to what he said. Whether you agree with him or not I leave up to you:

Roy.

Recent information suggests this is a scene from a TV series called ‘The Newsroom’ starring Jeff Daniels.  I have no way of verifying this, but either way, it does open up the possibility for wide-ranging discussion and you may make up your own mind on his views.
