UK: die for political correctness?

‘During the Gaza conflict, Islamic and far-Left student societies up and down the country held “sit-ins” to protest against Israel’s defensive action. During a tense period some universities – including Cambridge – stood up to the protesters. Others – including Oxford – caved in and gave into the demands of the “occupying” students. Such small acts of appeasement on behalf of university authorities give the radicals the idea that right is on their side and that, given time, everyone will see this.

… I was due to fulfil a longstanding commitment to chair a discussion at the London School of Economics. Shortly before the event, I was contacted by the university and told not to come to campus because there was a threat of violence if I did.

Just as, internationally, the Islamists give us the offer “say my religion is peaceful or I will kill you”, so domestically we are told “say there’s no radicalism or we’ll be radical”.

There are many messages that we should be giving out. But one in particular should go straight away to our political class: political correctness may be something that they are willing to fight for, but it is not something that most of us are willing to die for.’

So this guy is the director of the Centre for Social Cohesion.

The other guy in the article I referenced earlier today, Sadiq Khan, is the minister for Social Cohesion.

Just thought it was interesting to note.
