Scottish Nationalists: Kilts Are Racist!

Scottish Nationalists: Kilts Are Racist!

From the Scottish Daily Express…

SNP want to ban the kilt in Scottish schools in woke anti-racism crackdown

EXCLUSIVE: Scottish Government documents also say early years children need to ‘understand structural racism’ and should not be comforted if they cry ‘white tears’ after being told they are racist by their teacher…

Children should be stopped from wearing or even looking at kilts in schools as part of the SNP Government‘s “absurd” new anti-racism curriculum.

Nats ministers are pledging to raise Scots youngsters as “global citizens” in a drive to root out discrimination from the earliest ages.

But there are fears pupils as young as four could have lessons about white privilege foisted upon them.

Scottish Government documents state that primary school children should be encouraged to dress up in clothes worn in other cultures – but, bizarrely, that teachers should be “avoiding showing Scots in kilts”.

Other guidance tells staff they should ignore white children who cry when accused of racism.   Click here to read more of this SNP/”Woke” nonsense…

Did you ever read/hear anything so utterly stupid?  And we are paying these clowns to run the country!  Gimme a break!  

This is yet another missed opportunity, when the Scottish clergy could be pointing out, loud and clear, that if pupils in schools are taught elementary Christian charity (the Golden Rule: treat others as they wish to be treated themselves) there wouldn’t be any fear of racism anywhere in Scotland.

Honestly, the silence from the Catholic clergy just gets louder and louder. We’re way beyond “Is there a doctor in the house?” to “Is there a priest in the country?” How will these men answer to God at their judgment for their patent spiritual sloth? I mean, it’s not difficult to comment on this baloney.  Why are they so determined to keep the Gospel out of the public square?

Your thoughts…

    I mean, seriously – are these wee souls even remotely in danger of being “racist” – just because they’re wearing kilts (and learning Scottish dancing)? Gimme a break!

      I had a great laugh at those wee dancers – how could anyone think those teachers are making them racist just by teaching them Scottish country dancing in their kilts. The people pushing this woke garbage are sick in their souls.

    There’s something wrong with these people who bang on about racism and pick on the most ridiculous things which they say are evidence of it. How ridiculous to say stop kids wearing kilts but let them dress up in the national dress of other countries! “Stupid” is the word used in the intro and I agree with that. The people behind the extremist racist fanaticism really are stupid, IMHO.

    The children in both videos are lovely – especially the toddlers, God love them. To call their teachers racist for letting them wear their national dress – to do national dancing, for heaven’s sake – is beyond stupid, actually. I can’t find a word for it, it’s that far gone.

      Fidelis,

      To say there’s something wrong with these people is the understatement of the day, so far 😀

      I’ve just found this article and not finished reading it, but decided to post it here because it looks to be very informative, and challenging to the woke madness around us.
      https://thelasvegasgentleman.wordpress.com/2021/02/09/master-of-victims-wokeness-and-the-current-war-against-truth/

      The speed with which this madness has spread and grown, convinces me of its demonic roots. What I’ve read so far in the above link, adds to my certainty on the diabolical nature of the so-called (stupidly called) woke movement. They’re about as awake as a man in a drunken stupor with behaviour every bit as idiotic.

    Just when you think you’ve heard it all, you hear something even more nutty like Scottish nationalists wanting to ban the kilt! It would be hilarious if it wasn’t actually true.

    It becomes clearer with every passing day that if parents want to preserve their kids’ sanity (not to say, purity) they need to take them out of the education system and home-school. There’s really no other choice IMHO.

    I had to double-take on the above extract (and the rest of that mental report) because it just beggars belief. Whoever wrote that and thinks like that, has a very low IQ.

    So, what these idiots are claiming is that if a Scottish child doesn’t see a kilt, they’ll have discrimination rooted out of them. That is absurd. “Global citizens” – what does that mean, for pity’s sake?

    The world has gone mad, I mean even madder than it was before.

    I must watch to see how many times the SNP have bands of kilts and pipes at ceremonies in Holyrood (or anywhere else). Their thinking is so shallow, and so un-joined up that they will continue to do that sort of thing without remembering that seeing and wearing kilts makes you racist! So, they’ll be employing and paying racists who attend their ceremonies. LOL!

    I wonder what Nicola Sturgeon would have to say about Scottish soldiers going into battle wearing kilts during the First World War – that is 1914 – 1918. She might not be acquainted with this little bit of history, and, probably does not want to know.

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7187513/The-fearless-Scots-charged-battle-wearing-KILTS-World-War.html

    Tartans after all are associated with Scotland and in particular the Scottish Clan System. After all the Stewart tartan was different from the McKenzie tartan. Each clan had their own tartan to distinguish one from the other.

    I wish to goodness this woman would drop the woke-ness, it encourages people to act at being stupid.

      Theresa Rose,

      Nicola Sturgeon was present at the Jubilee Thanksgiving service in London – I saw her exiting with her husband on TV when I watched a bit of it earlier. She knows that a lot of Scots are royal fans and if she wants to win independence she will have to promise to keep the monarchy, which will cause a stramash with others like Tommy Sheppard SNP MP (Westminster) who is speaking at an anti-monarchist conference over the Jubilee days.

      I’m not sure that an independent country can have the Queen of another country as their head of state, but these days, anything goes, I suppose!

        Michaela,

        Unfortunately I missed the Jubilee Thanksgiving service in London so had not realised that Nicola Sturgeon and her husband had attended. It is true that many Scots are Royal fans who would like to keep the monarchy if Scottish independence became a reality. But am not sure how that would work out. We can only wait and see.

        That Queen Elizabeth has reigned for 70 years is remarkable in itself, though I am sure that she missed her father in the aftermath of his death in 1952. In comparison Queen Victoria reigned for 63 years.

        As for The Monarchy well their Anti Catholic just like the Horrible S.N.P. I assume of course that the Banning of wearing Kilts will also include the Banning of White Pyjamas and Turbins . Especially on a Friday.
        After all one wouldn’t want to Show that they came from Pakistan

        How about going all the way and Banning Rainbow Flags and Orange Sashes Especially in The Summer Time.

    Looks like there are at least two things at work here: one, this is a variation of “Critical Race Theory,” which is designed to humiliate Caucasians as part of the deconstruction of Western Civilization. Two, this is more evidence of what happens when the Catholic foundation of Western Civ is destroyed and replaced by Satanic (Marxist) theories. That is, there is no foundation at all, and reality is what you create in your imagination.

    These delusions build upon each other as they reach up into the sky like the Tower of Babel: each absurdity stands on the shoulders of the previous one.

    Then there’s the unmasking of the Scottish “Nationalist” Party as a Communist front group trying to eliminate, among other things, any identification with nationality (I think that’s what Josephine was getting at above)! BTW, the SNP politicians are the real racists, IMHO. They are projecting their wickedness onto others, while trying to please their globalist masters.

    Also at work is the diabolical inversion of language: “nationalist” really means eliminate nationalism (we all should remember that strategy from the enemies of the Church, who, at Vatican II, called destruction “reform,” updating, aggiornamento, and the like).

    As for Editor’s perennial question, “Where are the Catholic clergy?” the answer is that they are part of the old foundation that is now in ruins. In the modern Church, it’s every cleric for himself. Eat, drink and be merry, and be sure to use the right pronouns….

      RCA Victor,

      What a brilliant comment from you! You’ve summed it up perfectly – much better than you’re giving me credit for doing!

      Your second last paragraph from end says it all, really and I agree completely. It’s through the twisting of language that all of the woke nonsense is getting a hold.

      Earlier today, when I told some people in a shop about this SNP ban on kilts in schools, nobody believed me. They looked round-eyed and just thought there must be a mistake, as “this is our national dress, how can the SNP ban it?!”
      There will have been a few fingers googling this story today, no doubt, LOL!

      One person pointed out that there would be an outcry is they tried to ban the Muslim veil – so if that’s not racist, how can a kilt-wearer be racist?

    Honestly, I thought this was an April Fool joke until I saw the date. How ridiculous is that. What’s going to happen to the places where they make kilts for school uniforms now? Also, will this spread to adults – no more pipe bands or bridegrooms in kilts? It’s monstrous. The sooner the so-called Scottish Nationalists are booted out of Holyrood, the better, at least for the tartan kilts industry, LOL!

    Sorry, but I can’t take this seriously – surely no schoolteachers will follow these ridiculous instructions?

      Laura,

      That’s my own hope – that the teachers will ignore this idiotic instruction. It makes no sense to single out our national dress to call racist when we have people of non-Christian religions fully garbed in their national dress on our streets every day of the week, Muslims, Hindus, Sikhs, etc.

      The Scottish Government hasn’t come out with anything against the kilt. The fact that it’s in the Daily Express is enough to show that there is no truth in the story. This paper regularly reports things about the Scottish Government that are just not true. I believe it’s their misguided way of trying to preserve the union.

        littlecharie,

        This is from the pro-SNP newspaper, The National:-

        WE have a few generations of kilts in our wardrobe. They were passed on to my brothers and then to me … and then to our son.

        If required, I’m sure they could cater for another couple of generations, such is their hardiness.

        But maybe the politically correct police will be out and about before then.

        Last week, Education Scotland recommended that schoolteachers should ask themselves: “To what extent do the resources in your setting promote diversity and portray members of all ethnic and cultural groups in positive and non-stereotypical ways (for example avoiding showing Scots in kilts or Black children as poor, helpless Africans)?”
        https://www.thenational.scot/politics/20156687.roxanne-sorooshian-banning-kilt-set-return/

        I don’t agree that any news outlet in Scotland, including the Express, publishes false stuff about the SNP – they’re all hand in glove and protect the SNP all the time. This was one that slipped out, a bit like the report in the Daily Record about Nicola Sturgeon being photographed at her cousin’s birthday party when the rest of us were banned from socialising – there she was, in a big circle, all shoulder to shoulder, partying. No mention on TV and hardly anybody I’ve met knows anything about it. Yet she had the gall to criticise Johnson for his “partygate”.
