Skip to comments.UK City Council Removes Foster Children from Conservative Parents

The term Orwellian is overused, but its hard to think of a more apt adjective: officials at a left-wing British council have removed three children from their foster parents because of the parents political affiliation and unsubstantiated allegations of racism against them.
Social workers from Rotherham council in Yorkshire, which is controlled by the Labour party, removed the three Eastern European children from the foster parents and from what was by all accounts a stable and loving home after learning that the couple were members of the right-of-center UK Independence Party, or UKIP. Among other policies, UKIP wants to tighten Britains notoriously lax immigration laws.
Council officials said the party was racist, and Joyce Thacker, the councils director of children and young peoples services, said she had to consider the cultural and ethnic needs of the children: a baby girl, and an older girl and boy. But the councils argument is a series of evasions based on a blatant lie. This is a clear case of left-wing officials abusing their power to persecute individuals for holding politically incorrect beliefs.
Race does not play anything like the role in British politics as it does in the U.S., and for the most part the British left has refrained from stooping as low as their American counterparts. But just as Democrats spent the last few years playing the race card to silence critics of President Obama, when it comes to immigration and Britains relationship with Europe, British leftists have for years used accusations of racism to smear their opponents and to discredit their arguments.

So, when will Britons be marching on the city council offices demanding the immediate resignations of the council members responsible forr this blatant violation of human rights?
This situation underscores the importance of the left, regardless of country, being stomped on real hard when they play the race card. It should be ignored and discounted. Too many “Mr. Niceguy” types still not knowing how, and unwilling, to fight the radical left.
The left will destroy your children unborn or not,to get ahead with their agenda.I am not that familiar with the UKIP’s platform but even if they were teaching the kids not to play multiracial kumbaya -that is not a reason to take the children away.
I am not against multiculturalism or a multiethnic society,if it is natural and allows for such a society to coalesce into one national structure(E Pluribus Unum).
Neither is the UKIP if I remember correctly,they have some ethnic members,I don’t agree with their mentality although their platformcould makes sense.
The vile racists who spew this filth deserve public hanging.
Don’t ignore the race card.
Openly mock and jeer at those who use it.
Openly declare that they are using it because they have no other leg to stand on in the argument.
