Children in Lancashire, northern England, are being monitored for any hint that they might be influenced by "right-wing extremists."
Police said the ground-breaking counter-terrorism programme Channel, which has so far concentrated at Islamic extremism, has been widened to take account of the rise in right-wing extremism in the county.
Parents, teachers, community leaders and police officers are referring children and young adults who they feel may be at risk of being radicalised by groups such as the English Defence League.
Multi-culturalism, the state religion, leads to totalitarianism. Since government-encouraged colonization by Muslims and other imports from dysfunctional societies is bound to create strife when native populations are displaced in their own country, the Leftist Politburo has no choice but to stamp out any sign of resistance. Children must be prevented from hearing anything but the Multi Cult party line.
Channel is a national safeguarding initiative for individuals considered vulnerable to recruitment by violent extremists. ...
Insp Bilal Mulla, Lancashire’s Channel co-ordinator, said: “Channel is not a tool for spying. [Perish the thought! Just a way of spotting potential deviationists.] It is making people understand there may be vulnerable people who are targeted by those with radical views who had a different agenda."
That "Insp," by the way, is an abbreviation for "Inspector." In other words, a high-ranking police officer whose job is to proactively stamp out thought crimes by labeling them "violent extremism."
Insp Mulla said he wanted to encourage people to refer any ‘signposts’ of right-wing or other types of extremism to his team. ...
“We put interventions in place, not investigations. [Why waste time on investigation -- assuming thought crimes are fair game for investigation -- when you can get on with 'interventions'?] If someone is not suited for the Channel project, we pass them on to other authorities such as Youth Offending, mental health practitioners, probation for example."
Righto, Inspector. You got your smartphone-enabled arson parsons and looters-in-waiting, but so what? Remember your mission! Have your plods (during the hour per shift when they're not doing paperwork) keeping an eye out for youngsters who might be exposed to Forbidden Thoughts about race and immigration.
And I bow to your brilliance in turning any young person "at risk" of being influenced by the EDL over to the brain police -- sorry, I mean "mental health practitioners." Should you need any guidance, I'm sure you can find ex-KGB officers to act as advisers. In the Soviet Union, they got it down to a science, putting dissidents in mental wards for "treatment."
Community Cohesion Sgt Colin Dassow, who runs the courses, said: “Right-wing extremism is having a big influence on what we do.”
Sergeant Dassow -- "Community Cohesion" sergeant! -- you said it. Can't have community cohesion while there's any free thought and free speech left in Lancashire.
