Because not all terrorists are Muslim (a line which must be repeated seven times before breakfast), if you’re a 15 year old school boy, who isn’t Muslim, but who visits a website which might be against your country’s current immigration laws, it stands to reason you might be a terrorist. After all, the greatest terrorists of our modern times have been 15 year old English boys researching a project in class…
The father of a British schoolchild is complaining after his son’s school called the police when he visited the website of an anti-immigration political party.
The UK Independence Party (UKIP) is the U.K.’s main anti-immigration party, and collected just under 13 percent of the vote in the country’s 2015 election. It also holds 22 of the country’s 73 seats in the European Parliament. But despite its mainstream status, Wildern School in Hampshire apparently thought visiting the party’s website was the mark of an extremist.
Let’s start at the beginning and work our way to 1984.
The school called the cops on a 15 year old for visiting a website. Not a website on how to make bombs. Not a website chock full of porn. A political website of a party which is pretty mainstream in the UK, and who isn’t thrilled with immigration.
The kicker here is they were afraid the 15 year old ENGLISH BOY, was an extremist for visiting the party’s website.
By the way, he found the website while browsing the internet after a class discussion on immigration. Anyone who knows anything about searching for crap online knows when you Google a couple of words you get thousands of hits. But it was this site which triggered the authorities’ concern.
“I don’t know how you can be extremists when you have 22 MEPs, a member of Parliament, three lords and 500 councillors all over the country,” Nuttall told the BBC. “We’re certainly not extremists.”
Another UKIP party member told the Express that the police scrutiny suggested a possible effort by the government to suppress UKIP’s popularity among young people.
Emphasis mine. Because duh. Ironically, telling a 15 year old he’s an extremist for visiting a website which is against immigration might have the opposite effect. How many 15 year old boys do you know who will just sit this kind of thing out? If a 15 year old is told “You can’t visit that website, you’re an extremist,” just how much more curious will he be about it?
This is indicative of a greater problem in the UK which we’re experiencing in the USA (see Donald Trump). People are fed up with being told they’re intolerant, racist A-holes for being against illegal immigration or border security. They’re fed up with losing their national culture, giving up the melting pot for a hodgepodge of self-segregated cultures who refuse to assimilate to the American way of life. They’re tired of terrorists entering their country with zero problems, being coddled by leftists governments, and then later killing innocent people (read Dear Cowardly Politicians Subverting Our Safety for ‘Refugees’….
It’s really not a mystery why anyone, even teenagers, might be curious about what the other side is saying. But sure…those of us who are against illegal immigration? Yeah, we’re the extremists.
