Re: PC thinking is harming society - report

So, an unbaised report then?

Doesn't mean it's not true, though.

The stupid bastards can't see that political correctness is having exactly the opposit effect to what was intended,I know people who have never had a racist thought in their lives openly speak of their resentment now,and that resentment was not caused by the likes of 9/11,it is caused by a thousand little bits of political correctness being shoved down their throats on a daily basis.
Those who advocate it should be thrown into a pit,sprayed with liquid shite and forced to read aloud ,Orwell's 1984 ten thousand times.

Re: PC thinking is harming society - report

I have written to Charles Clark re our immigration policy regarding the admission of people/refugees with HIV/AIDS. I wrote because of the nuber of AIDs checks I have had to endure. Working in the former Soviet Union means that one has to have an AIDs check before entering the country. Once inside the country, one has to have another ckeck to ensure that the results of the original check were true. I therefore have had about eight. And I have to say that I saw nothing wrong with the reasoning behind this. (it’s not PC, but who has ever heard of members of the former SU being accused of PC).

I relly do believe the PC brigade has departed reality. Accepting that sex is quintessential to the life condition and accepting that HIV/AIDs, if not a guaranteed death sentence, is potentially one, how can the govt continue to allow the number of people with HIV intp the country. I gather that Anthony Browne wrote that “African immigration had overtaken gay sex as the main source of new HIV cases in Britain”. It would appear that HIV doctors praised him for this observation but MPs refused to discuss it because they thought it was ‘racist’. Are we really so much in denial that we refuse to accept the factual actual truth as opposed to the politically correct truth. Published material can confirm these figures but seemingly the PC brigade (with notions of emotional investment to the fore) will strive to disprove it, as have the govt. in refusing to accept it.

Presumably ES has information to contradict Anthony Brown's assertion?

Thank you,

Is the object a SPADE oh and I
was given a lovely nigger brown sweater for Christmas.
We sang Christian carols, drank alcohol and watched old sitcoms on
the box made at a time when it was still possible to enjoy talent and
wit. Funny they never broadcast " Love thy Neighbour "

Not as such, but I tend to take a report coming from a right wing think tank as having a certain 'politically convenient' bias.

And would apply the same criteria to anything prepared by the Fabian Society.

Now, a joint report by Civitas and The Fabian Society would command my attention and respect.

...and the Septics are going to re-name Guy Gibson's dog in the new "Dambusters" movie.
I'd put flowers on Nigger's grave outside Scampton but some PC t*at has removed it.

They don't broadcast "Love Thy Neighbour" because it was bloody awful.

Well, onto the HIV story, i need to add a cent or two. In SA, you are not allowed to request an HIV test for any employee. EVEN IN THE MEDICAL/CHILDCARE sector. Now what makes my piss bitter, is that for example, in the aviation sector, there are certain medical conditions that make you unfit to fly aircraft.....now compare the two.

Come on bleeding hearts explain this to me.

PIRATE - to be fair, (and I'm not an authority and would bow to better knowledge of the subject) an HIV infected person would be aware of what was dangerous in terms of passing on the infection, whether in child-care, or medical fields, and the danger would be very very low. Maybe "food prep" would have been a better example.

However, a pilot of a commercial passenger (especially) aircraft with a potentially incapacitating medical condition would be (say) a thousand more times dangerous to those he came into contact with (professionally)


Anyway - "thread drift" - Now back to the 2 bl00dy [email protected] n1ggras who merrily drove down the 2nd lane on the highway in front of me coming home tonight, then just as the slip-road was ending, shifted over 2 lanes to take the exit
