Sin Bins and GLSEN

December 16th, 2009

Two stories, almost too ugly to be true … the British have a nanny Children’s Secretary named Ed Balls. He’s proposing to expand a program characterized as “Sin Bins” wherein closed circuit tv cameras will be installed in 20,000 homes of “the worst families” per a Daily Express article quoted below: (tip to TheUnbrokenWindow.com for finding the story)

THOUSANDS of the worst families in England are to be put in “sin bins” in a bid to change their bad behavior, Ed Balls announced yesterday.

The Children’s Secretary set out £400million plans to put 20,000 problem families under 24-hour CCTV super-vision in their own homes.

They will be monitored to ensure that children attend school, go to bed on time and eat proper meals.

Private security guards will also be sent round to carry out home checks, while parents will be given help to combat drug and alcohol addiction.

This is the kind of insanity one gets when government pretends to be the ultimate nanny.

The second story has been developing for a while. Barack Obama has installed a “School Safety Czar” named Kevin Jennings. Jennings is the author of a book called “Queering of Elementary Education: Advancing the Dialogue About Sexualities and Schooling” advocating a gay agenda in schools. He is also the founder of GLSEN, an organization dedicated to promoting homosexuality and pedophilia among grammar school children and adults. Since Jennings became a government official GLSEN’s current activities have been exposed. These include lewd reading lists promoting homosexual activities among school kids, homosexual activities between adult men and young male children, promotion of homosexual practices such as “fisting” for children 7-12 years old, and such other descriptions which make me want to puke. (Read this material linked above, if you have a strong stomach for filth.)

I suppose Mr. Jennings and Mr. Balls are both experts in child rearing according to some twisted leftist definition. But these two stories illustrate the insanity of letting government intrude into the lives of private citizens. These “experts” pretend to know what’s best for you and your children. I cringe every time a politician starts talking about “Our Children.” Whose children?

I can’t speak to the amazing and dismaying willingness of the British to tolerate the growing surveillance society and the likes of Mr. Balls. But I can speak to the utter depravity of letting Kevin Jennings be a “Safe Schools Czar.” The fact that he was appointed and that, after what has been revealed about him, Jennings remains in a position of power speaks to President Obama’s utter contempt for his country and its citizens.

Don’t say it can’t happen here. It already is.
