UK Teachers Union: Teaching children fundamental British values is act of ‘cultural supremacism’

The UK seems determined to commit suicide. They’re determined to keep counterjihadis like me out of the country, while jihad preachers have free rein. The National Union of Teachers is upset about teaching British values. They will eagerly accept Islamic values. Britain is dying quickly.

“Teaching children fundamental British values is act of ‘cultural supremacism,'” by Javier Espinoza, Telegraph, March 28, 2016:

Teaching children fundamental British values is an act of “cultural supremacism”, teachers have said, as members of the National Union of Teachers (NUT) vote to replace the concept with one that includes “international rights”.

A legal duty on teachers to promote so-called British values was passed two years ago after the “Trojan Horse” controversy.

However, teachers argue “fundamental British values” set an “inherent cultural supremacism, particularly in the context of multicultural schools and the wider picture of migration”.

The motion, which was passed at the NUT’s annual conference in Brighton, also calls for a campaign to promote “policies that welcome migrants and refugees into Britain” and called on members to “gather and collate materials on migrants and refugees” to be used in schools.

Following the motion, teachers were accused of looking to play “the role of fifth columnists” and that they risked making children feel guilty about being British.

The motion said migrants make a “huge economic, political and social contribution to the country” and condemned the Prime Minister for “racial stereotyping”.

Michel Holland, a teacher from Lambeth, said: “I am the grandson of Irish refugees. We’re all refugees in this country.” He added: “Refugees are welcome here.”

Christopher Denson, a teacher from Coventry, said he had reservations about using the term “fundamental British values” in schools because many of his students had ancestry in countries which had been at the mercy British colonialism.

He said: “The inherent cultural supremacism in that term is both unnecessary and unacceptable. And seen with the Prevent agenda, it belies the most thinly veiled racism and a conscious effort to divide communities.”

He added: “It’s our duty to push a real anti-racist work in all schools. And that doesn’t mean talk of tolerating other’s views, but genuine, inclusive anti-racist work.”

He said every year his school discussed topics such as apartheid and the rise of Islamaphobia. He added: “This year we focussed on the migrant crisis in Calais, the Mediterranean and beyond.

“We organised a politics day for Year 8s in the week before Easter. They had a day to form a political party in their tutor groups to come up with a manifesto, film a broadcast, and make banners and take part in a debate.

“Apart from the quality of the work, the other thing that really made my proud was that every single tutor group had as a policy, ‘refugees welcome, open the borders’.”

He said: “We need to be pushing at every level for anti-racism to be in the core curriculum for every child. We need to continue to gather, collate and publicise such materials and we need to fight to reject this notion of British values, to fight for notions of human values and human rights.

“We have to stand together across communities to bring down barriers, bring down borders, to say no to Islamaphobia, no to anti-Semitism, no to facism and any form of racism. As my Year 8s said, refugees welcome, open the borders.”

Their motion was met with fierce criticism. Chris McGovern of the Campaign for Real Education, said: “Teachers should not be playing the role of fifth columnists in the ideological war currently being fought over our national identity and our national sovereignty.

“Teaching children that British values are part of “cultural supremacism” will, at best, make them feel guilty about being British and, at worst, radicalise them in order to ‘make up’ for the sins of their fathers.

“If one wishes to destroy a nation and build a ‘brave new world’ you begin by indoctrinating and brainwashing the children. This process of ‘re-education’ has started some years ago in our schools and we are, now, seeing its consequences in the suppression of free speech on our university campuses.”

Separately, teachers rejected the Government’s anti-radicalisation strategy over concerns it is silencing conversation in the classroom and damaging community cohesion.

The union called on the Government to withdraw the Prevent strategy regarding schools, which since summer 2015, has obliged teachers to refer to police pupils they suspect of engaging in some sort of terrorist activity or radical behaviour….

    I know that British Unions, like some others, are jamb packed with hare-brained Communists who try very hard to get away with calling themselves ‘Socialists.’ As though there is a whole lot of difference. Those of us who can read and write know what a “splendid” job Communists murderers did in Russia, China and in Cuba, for examples, where one could find himself rotting in prison, or executed, for mentioning the pitiful condition of the common people. I am an American of English heritage, on both sides of my family, going back to 1612 at the English settlement at Jamestown, Virginia. The English, or if you wish the British People, have established civilized democratic nations on at least four continents. Built cities, railroads, law and order, and so forth, in these areas. Now, please tell me why the Marxist crowd in the British Unions are so opposed to teaching the heritage, history and many accomplishments of the BRITISH PEOPLE? I know the answer to that question but I wish that the British People would realize what is going on in their midst. We in the U.S. have a bit of the same problem among the so called literati; a mob, by and large, who are about one step from being passengers on the “SHORT BUS.”

      Cliff, I know exactly what you are saying, I live in Wisconsin!

      Christopher Denson, a teacher from Coventry, said he had reservations about using the term “fundamental British values” in schools because many of his students had ancestry in countries which had been at the mercy British colonialism.

      He said: “The inherent cultural supremacism in that term is both
      unnecessary and unacceptable…”

      In Sweden, these exact sentiments regarding “Swedish Values” have been widespread amongst the intelligentsia – the consequence of which has been the brutal unraveling of Swedish society and the impending destruction of that country.

      Today in Britain a young soldier can be decapitated in the street and there are outcries against racism, while British children can be “groomed” as sex workers for Muslims, and the authorities look the other way.

      Is it already too late to save Britain?

      To ask the question is to answer it.

      • michaelofsydney

        Yeah. I don’t want to go there again. To see London now or even Paris would change my romantic memories. London has been on the decline for years. When they sold a National Treasure like Harrods to the Arabs, that was a shame.What is happening now is a disgrace. It seems as if it is getting to the stage where simply saying something will attract the thought police, so they sadly go about their business, hoping someone will do ‘something’. The seeds of confusion have been sown. The invaders have arrived and that was all she wrote!

        PS. I think the Socceroos will beat England at Wembley in June.

        • Michael Garfinkel

          Interesting that you feel this way, as I do, incidentally.

          The comic British actor John Cleese, who has resided in L.A. for many years, recently returned to London.

          He reported that he was quite shocked to find that in many ways, London was virtually unrecognizable.

        • Save Europe

          Uh no, the Australian football team is not very good. We have some very young, hot as hell, players, now. England are now REALLY good. London is horrible, I’m English – if you want a great holiday in the UK, visit Bath, Exeter, the New Forest, Cornwall, North Wales et cetera – absolutely zero Muslims there!!!

      • Jaime_the_Scribe

        I feel the next phase will be civil war against the Left. It will happen.

      • joe1429

        And the swedish libtards… just pledged to the un to take in Thousands More of the syrians… to finish off their women! Whats the def of insanity????

  • Seerightthere!

    What would they like to teach? “How to detonate your vest for virgins in the sky”?

    • Dr. Doomsday

      Virgins in the sky, with bomb vests…

      -unpublished Beatles tune..

      • Seerightthere!

        Actually I think it’s from intellectual froglegs, joe dan.

  • Pray Hard

    Determined to? More like, they are. It’s all about teaching self loathing.

  • wilypagan

    Unions should stick to advocating for wages, benefit and work condition issues and stay the heck out of curriculum issues which should be decided by the community. Why should an Irishman have a say in British curriculum anyway? Seditious.

  • Mahou Shoujo

    Alrighty then teacher fools, introduce the concept of equality and tolerance to muslim students. You want to teach about cultural equality, then do so, you old flat footed over paid useless preachers. Talk is cheap, your self loathing angst filled hatred of the society that paid for your education,now paying your wages, you are all “numb an an arse” to put it nicely.

  • Dr. Doomsday

    I hate to tell all these losers, well, no I don’t, but there ARE superior and inferior cultures on this planet. Don’t believe me? Then pack up your life and move to some lousy dungpile of a society in some out of the way dustbin of a country, and see how you like it. Tell me its the same or as good as or better than the UK.

    • Honkingeese Watchgoose lll

      Dead right Dr. Doomsday…some cultures wouldn’t even have plumbing, two story buildings or the wheel let alone internet and space travel and the social development is equally far apart with sex slavery, misogyny and crucifiction still prevalent in some lower order societies, let alone separation of powers and freedom of speech yet we accede to the wishes of these cavemen in order to feel tolerant and righteous and that’s the worst kind of racism , that patronising ‘let’s pretend inbred Ahmed is just as developed as us’ instead of demanding that he lift his behaviour to ours.
      BRITISH culture is far superior to inbred islam’s, we should be proud of the fact.

    Will readers in the New World and elsewhere do a “heads up”?

    I believe there are lessons for American parents in what is going down in the UK, because these cultural Marxists don’t educate our children, they indoctrinate them with class war, anti white British race hate and treason. They teach cultural Marxism.

    For those concerned about the child sexual exploitation issue in Britain’s schools, you can do no better than read “Easy Meat” by Peter McLoughlin, in it you will read from page 117 to 140 just HOW the NUT {National Union of Teachers} played it’s part, along with the National Association of Schoolmasters and Union of Women Teachers in hiding the ethnicity issue and scale of the problem around the Muslim grooming gangs and their predominantly white under aged girl victims.

    The reporting of the facts was further undermined by the NUJ or National Union of Journalists because the facts that Muslims from Pakistan, Kashmir and Somalia were deeply involved did not accord with the PC mantra of multiculturalism and cross ethnic “harmony”.

    In the opinion of the books author, this silence has lasted at least over the last 25 years.

    All these unions support the hard left Marxist mob “Unite against Fascism” which regularly breaks up political meetings and storms halls where speeches are being held because they don’t like what’s being talked about. The NUJ would have no compunction in calling PG and RS “far right” or even “Neo Nazi” for standing UP for civilised human rights against Sharia around the world.

    What has come out of that conference this week has proved that all concerned are still in denial and bent on the violent overthrow of my country and society.

    At Christmas 2014, the UK government had a list of 30 British towns and cities which qualified for special government funds to combat the growth of Islamic extremism and terror, in January 2015, that list of 30 was extended by another 14 making 44 in all. Three of the 14 were Brighton, home to dozens of language schools catering for students from around the world and state schools {where there are over 70 languages in class} Portsmouth {home of the Royal Navy} and Crawley {home to Gatwick Airport, London’s second}.

    Now I learn that the London Daily Telegraph is shortly to stop allowing comments on its website about its published news stories until “further notice”.

    Why am I telling you all this?

    In November you have the chance to avoid OUR fate, you guys elect a new President.

    The hard Marxist left in YOUR country is as dangerous to your future as ours is to us, learn what the enemy looks and sounds like, then destroy them because if you don’t, they will destroy you.

    Whoever you vote for, remember, look to Europe and understand, the hour is late.

  • arnoldspriggs

    Here in Britain, the National Union of Teachers (NUT) have been known to be a bunch of loony lefties since I was in short trousers.

  • Nico Kazan

    That’s what Britain deserves. I guess even disengagement from EU won’t help since infection caught properly and spreading in alarming rate. When they were in Palestine they took the side of the Arabs and the result was Jihadist movement to throw out both Jews and the British. British were thrown out but Jews proved a tough nut to crack. The same thing happens today when Israel repels hundreds of terrorist attacks while Islam makes new advances under British rule this time on British land. Such traitors among people responsible for education must trigger massive national demonstrations which will besiege Parliament, but instead only a handful of critics speak, the uquivalent of Pamela Geller in Britain. With this kind of attitude British get exactly their dues.

  • soundclick.com/globalfirm

    We need global identity, it’s a natural thing, to liberate the world from nationalism & religious suppression, to free enslaved by Muslims in Mauritania (25%), Saudi Arabia & new North-Sudan African slaves, from Muhammadist governments & from the not global but superficial, national stance of for example the British government towards Muhammad & his unethical & racist manifest. If you are against racism be it but be it globally, not in your national fantasy-world garden. The ‘open borders for Muhammadists’ stance does not represent global identity but Muhammadism, a stance fabricated by superficial media-people led by dangerous manipulated into the Muhammadist idea people.
    Nationalism & religionism OUT of politics. Think global, act global.

      Look, the loss of national identity from countries in Europe is the worst thing that has ever happened to them, there has never been the promised benefits as a result of countries passing their powers of self rule to a bunch of unelected autocrats in the EU.
      The UN was supposed to sort out all the problems that Nation states were experiencing with security and trade, The UN is an unstoppable monster that has only made a hash of every single intervention in its history.
      The last thing that this world wants is another “Tower of Babel” to undermine sovereign states with its poison.

      • soundclick.com/globalfirm

        Save global identity, dissolve Muhammadism.
        I reject to have Muhammadism or national identity be forced upon me. Repeat.

        • Honkingeese Watchgoose lll

          Well you’re going to get it whether you reject it or not and that’s what’s giving us all the shits about islam. Nation states are great, without them there wouldn’t be borders to wall off from the invading scumtide.

        • The origional roger

          And I categorically reject your demands on sovereign citizens in secular countries that we all come under the auspices of a world government, which is what the UN is trying to do right now which is totally to the benefit of Islamic domination.

  • The origional roger

    “Apart from the quality of the work, the other thing that really made my proud was that every single tutor group had as a policy, ‘refugees welcome, open the borders’ said Christopher Denson.
    And now the teachers union wants to remove the provision in the “Prevent Strategy” which requires teachers to report students suspected of terrorist activity.
    Well, Mr Denson and some in the teachers union need to experience the fullness of a terrorist attack and gain some insight, if it happens to them or their own families maybe they might change, but who knows, even then, maybe they wouldn’t.

  • stephen powell

    ‘International rights’ is a code word for erasing international borders. Of course, anyone in your country also has a right to a free place to live, free medical care and free money. The idea is to enslave the native population to support a leisure class of migrants.

  • Dorrie

    ALL of Europe is falling due to SOCIALISM/COMMUNISM. They’ve lost their collective minds!

  • ColonelNeville

    Leftist “anti-racism” lies means white genocide.

  • Robert Batchelor

    It is becoming increasingly clear that you can only be welcome in Great Britain if you’re a supporter of Islamic terrorism or you’re at least sympathetic to their cause.

    And, the other disturbing issue—–the brainwashing of the children is Orwellian.

  • BonniePrinceCharlie

    Thank God my grandchildren are being educated in America. Within 6 weeks of moving to DC last August my 4 year old grandson could recite the Pledge of Allegiance (which he insisted in calling the Pleasure of Allegiance).

  • Jaime_the_Scribe

    I think it’s a disgrace how our values no longer matter in case it offends migrants. Well to hell with what these leftist morons think. People who come here should be made to adhere to our culture, rules, laws and way of life. Otherwise, they shouldn’t be here. If our ways offend them, then tough. I am sick and tired of these left wing morons doing what they love to do and that is to undermine all our heritage and freedoms to suit a heap of people who don’t even recognise diversity, and yet conversely, expect us to tow the line for them. No way.

    Teachers, like most Left-Wing people, are now showing just how dedicated they are to demolishing the very structure of our way of life.

    Multiculturalism = baggage, issues, and their problems. Well it is not our problem at all and shouln’t be made to be.

    I strongly believe in opposing them at every given opportunity.

  • Honkingeese Watchgoose lll

    British values in Britain? What values do you ask your immigrants to assimilate to then?
    It’s reminiscent of Sweden’s devaluation of Swedish culture and the migrants there think they are brought in for their cutural superiority!
    ” Show us how Somalia, teach us to be more Eritrean and build a Sweden more like the international success story that Libya has become, yay!, our country is yours.”

  • Honkingeese Watchgoose lll

    Bust a NUT. Honk Honk Honk.

  • Mike Kevins

    NUT. What an appropriate name.

    • Jaime_the_Scribe

      Youi got that right.

  • Chet

    That so. Well, cultural supremacy far surpasses cultural rot…

  • joe1429

    The us libtards have done this here too. Our public schools have abandoned teaching traditional American Values, in place of multicultreism. The result is the birth of all the young Anti american Left wingers, that you see on protests every nite. Great job, academic leftards!!!!
