Citing UN Treaty, Scotland Assigns Overseer to Every Child
The New American ^ | 02-28-2014 | Alex Newman

Citing a radical United Nations treaty known as the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC), lawmakers in Scotland approved a deeply controversial new law assigning an individual government overseer to each and every child in the country charged with monitoring their development. However, the draconian measure, which has sparked criticism and outrage around the world as a brazen assault on parental rights and privacy, is already in the process of being challenged in court.

Outside of Scotland, concerns have been especially widespread in the United States, where parental-rights advocates are warning about an accelerating worldwide attack on the rights of parents to direct the upbringing of their children. In fact, according to the Scottish legislation itself, the decision to appoint a government overseer to supervise the development of every child is meant to comply with what the Scottish government views as its “existing obligations” under the UN CRC regime.

I wonder about this - did the DNA of the brave leave that country a long time ago leaving mostly weaklings?

My mother’s maiden name is Scott - they lived in North Dakota for a while before moving to San Diego. Sturdy and self-reliant people.

Conditioning for the revealing of the Man of sin. The United Nations is the domain of the Anti-Christ.

Where do you think he got the idea for his "brothers keeper" nonsense?

This is what voting for independence will get the Scots, a Stalinist dictatorship under Chairman Eck.

The nuclear family is a principal building block of the civil society as such it constitutes an obstacle to the imposition of collectivist utopia.

Scotland is the UK equivalent of our inner cities. A couple of generations of living on the Dole does that. Something like 80% of Scotlands economy is Government based.

Only slaves and prison inmates require overseers. Which of these does the Scottish government consider its children to be?

This is North Korean in scope. A future president on our side should sanction Scotland for this crap. The worst thing is, go to online news articles and Scots are ecstatic at the thought of confiscating kids raised in traditional homes. Very very sick. It makes me so glad we have a 2nd Amendment.

If one of these spies came to my house, there would be no talking. Quick bullet to the face and then dump that commie in a ditch.

Only 20% are actual producers? How is there enough money for the government to function?

This gives me chills....this is what BO wants for us. The photos and movies I’ve seen of Scotland are incredibly depressing.
