Police chiefs have come under fire today for flying the rainbow flag for lesbians, gays and bisexuals outside its police stations – when they are forbidden to display the Union Jack. The multi-coloured ‘Freedom’ flag adopted by the gay pride movement in the 1970’s is now flying at Suffolk Police’s Ipswich HQ and its stations at Bury St Edmunds and Lowestoft. The flags – which include the force’s badge – are to mark lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender history month.
Is this the kind of culturally Marxist crap that Judith Collins seeks in the NZ Police with her demands for a change of culture, and her replacement of top police. A focus on diversity rather than law enforcement?
But there was fierce criticism of the move after it was revealed that stations were not allowed, under force policy, to fly the Union Jack or the Cross of St George. James Brady, 34, of Bury accused the police of being discriminatory – ‘We don’t seem to have a week celebrating hetrosexuality,’ he said. ‘It’s very disappointing that the police are prepared to put up a flag for a minority at the same time as ignoring the vast majority of people. I am certainly not homophobic in any way – but it’s double standards and ignores the roots and traditions of this country.’
Sure its a disgusting double standard. One enforced by the Police Department and the politicians Mr. Brady has elected.
Another resident Paul Kimpson, 59, said: ‘It smacks of inequality and I am afraid it does seem to be yet another example of political correctness taking over from common sense. It’s outrageous that the Union Jack can’t be flown on days such as the Queen’s Birthday and that the cross of St George is considered unworthy of being flown when appropriate.’
Damn outrage, and that outrage should be expressed at the voting booth. We must stop electing politicians who support and promote these disgusting and cowardly attacks upon our traditional mores.
But Suffolk’s Chief Constable Simon Ash, who personally ran up the rainbow flag at the force’s HQ at Martlesham said: ‘The flag signifies pride and inclusivity. We must continue to recognise and embrace differences while ensuring we provide a policing service to the people of the county who respect their differences. The flags send out the message that we will not accept crime motivated by hate and prejudice and will continue to champion equal opportunities.
‘We have a commitment to tackle hate crimes and we want the message to be clear to victims and offenders that offences involving disability, race, religion and belief, sexual orientation or transgender will not be tolerated. We are a force that values and embraces diversity among our own workforce and among the people we serve. I want this to be an organisation where everyone feels comfortable at work and is treated fairly.’
Here is your man. Chief Constable Simon Ash has been promoted within the Police Department not for his ability in catching crooks, but because he is a devotee of Cultural Marxism. He has been promoted and placed as Chief Constable by other such devotees further up the chain of command and within the Police bureaucracy. That chain of command stops with our elected politicians and we must stop electing those who buy into this rubbish, and start electing politicians who will oppose it. We must start electing politicians who understand the urgent need to start dismantling the power structures of the cultural Marxists. Judith Collins is a light year away from this realization.
