Leftist ‘Tolerance’ In The UK: Conservative Foster Parents Deemed ‘Unfit’ Because Of Political Views

Before, it was Christians being declared “unfit.”   Now loving foster parents with a proven track record are being discriminated against because they happen to be conservative.

The husband spent three decades as a reservist in the Royal Navy and currently works with disabled people. The wife is a qualified nursery nurse. The two of them have cared for dozens of children in the past seven years. But they’re “unfit” to act as foster parents now because they support a conservative political group?

That’s leftist “tolerance.”

Michelle Malkin writes:

Here’s a chilling tale of political persecution from across the pond. A loving, exemplary foster couple in England had their children taken away because of their membership in the UK Independence Party. The UKIP is a limited-government, libertarian group that opposes membership in the European Union and advocates for stricter enforcement of immigration laws. The local council that oversees foster care tore the family apart because bureaucrats deemed the parents, you guessed it, racist.

[…]  Substitute “Tea Party” for “UK Independence Party.” If it can happen in Britain, it could happen here. The criminalization of conservative dissent is already well underway.

The Blaze reports:

The Ukip advocates lower taxes, limited government, freer markets, and immigration reform. However, to certain social workers in the Labour-controlled Rotherham borough, supporting the above makes you an “unsuitable” foster parent.

The parents claim they were made to feel like criminals and that they had a “black mark” on them for supporting the conservative group. And now it has culminated in the loss of their foster children, one boy and two girls.

Unsurprisingly, Farage unloaded on the Rotherham borough’s decision to take the children away, calling it “a bloody outrage” and “political prejudice of the very worst kind.”

Tim Loughton, the former children’s minister, agrees with Farage.

“I will be very concerned if decisions have been made about the children’s future that were based on misguided political correctness around ethnic considerations,” he said.

“Being a supporter of a mainstream political party is not a deal-breaker when it comes to looking after children if it means they can have a loving family home,” he added.

The foster couple wishes to remain anonymous because they don’t want the children they cared for being involved. However, it has been revealed that they are both in their 50s, the husband is a retired Royal Navy reservist of more than 30 years who currently works with disabled people, and the wife is a “qualified nursery nurse.”

It is also being reported that they have spent seven years acting as foster parents and have looked after about a dozen different children.

In America, the Left has already pushed the narrative that all Tea Party conservatives are “racists.” Catholic charities have already been forced out of foster care service charities for their supposed “bigotry” in favor of traditional families. How long before they try to use these same discrimination tactics against conservatives in the U.S.?
