It most certainly is an idiotic rewriting of history, an attempt to hide the past and you know the old saying he whom forgets the lessons of the past.

I think this is actually political correctness gone too far just like the recent ruling against a Christian Adoption Agency in Carlisle whom have been ordered to give children to gay couples and because of this may actually choose to close instead of going against God's higher law.

I am equally disgusted with the RAF however you can see why they did it even if you also see correctly they have gone too far and are trying to rewrite the past.

It was however no less wrong at that time than it is today, as recently as the 1980's I had an ex RAF electronics tutor at college whom used a rhyming trick which incorporated words that are not today PC to help us remember certain very basic thing's in electronic theory, he was in his 50's so had obviously picked them up in the 50's when he was trained in the RAF.

It's part of our history and lest we forget it was WE the British whom stopped the international slave trade - or at least tried very hard to do so with Royal Navy patrols in the Atlantic from the 1820's onward and even RN patrol's in the Arabian Gulf and off the coast of Somalia until the 1960's when budget cut's ended them, actually I think there were still infrequent ones later than that but we were the world's policeman until the US took over after WW2, we were also the first European nation to Ban slavery so forgetting part of the whole risk's forgetting all of it including our own laudable saving grace moment when as a nation we reminded ourselves we were supposed to be Christian and so voted in reformers and got the ball moving to end an unchristian and inhuman trade in human lives.

But instead of loudly proclaiming how we were the first to end slavery (of course we still had work houses and exported our poor often to slave labour work prisons for many decades after this, indeed we only stopped giving the Aussies our kid's whom were often illegally claimed to be orphan's and had only been in temporary care but were handy to fill up the numbers of kid's the Aussies had wanted from us in the late 1970's, many of these children born and bred in Britain ended up suffering abuse or else being treated as slaves once they got there (so our sheet is far from clean despite this early Christian led reform against slavery).

Still the RAF is trying to whitewash history and it is a disgusting act of Vandalism against what many regard as a wartime monument by the PC police that are running our nation and people into the ground.

I consider this nothing less than vandalism. Vandalism and cowardice in response to communist whining. The correct response is to tell them to go # themselves.

I was thinking 'Road to Nowhere' by Talking Heads.

'Well we know where we're going
But we don't know where we've been
And we know what we're knowing
But we can't say what we've seen...'

But yyour quote is far more on point.

I don't think this has anything to do with communists or even our own brand of socialism (though militant would have loved it), rather I think this is to do with political correctness and idiot's wanting to be seen as progressive when in fact they are covering up the past, the truth and damning free speech to hell.

The reason I say this is that I am a traditional Labour voter, not new Labour or Militant (militant were basically soviet backed communists in disguise that infiltrated and tried to take over the Labour Party back in the 1980's and had caused too many strikes having infiltrated the union's in the 1970's - they basically wrecked labour time and again and allowed the Tory's to take over until New Labour was born and then New Labour was a swing too far to the right on some point's and too far to the militant on other's but I digress both Militant and New Labour were NOT Labour (at least I don't recognize them they are not down to earth as we say over here) - you would have to understand our political history it is a bit different to yours and while we were never going to become commies we did not have the same hatred of there ideal's just of there way of implementing them and of totalitarianism in general, remember we stood along against Hitler and his dog's until he attacked the other Totalitarian regime the Soviets and gave us a respite, it took pearl harbour for the US to come on side in the war though your president was a good man and tried to help us even before that - if he could have gotten it past your pro Nazi and anti war lobby's he would have brought the US into the war earlier and probably averted many casualty's that arose because he could not - then again it is possible that your nation suffered less casualty's fighting to help save us and free Europe than they would have if Hitler had not already gone to war with Russia.

Back to the thread, we come from a different generation, much that was ordinary and normal to us was not seen by us as racist but simply funny, the black and white minstrel's, the gollywog doll's and symbols on penny chews and jars of jam etc and we even had plenty of WW2 era American cartoon's on the BBC back in the 1970's including one character I don't recall his name that was a black tribesman that would walk with a hop and had a bone in his hair whom was always outsmarting the other cartoon characters and even lion's.

Today however much that we saw and had as ordinary would turn if I may borrow a current word from the us These Woke people's hair white with shock.

But it did not turn us into a nation of racists, on the contrary it was our generation and the one before it that opened our heart's and arm's to the world, we that started anti discrimination but never dreamed it would be used to discriminate against us one day.

If anything has turned us racist and less trusting of migrants it began with the London and Liverpool race riot's, the no go zones for Ethnic British people unless they grow a beard or wear a hijab that have appeared up and down our country and the likes of Shamema Begum and the Migrant's that blew up a load of little kid's at a concert in Manchester among other such disgusting antic's, the way they have been acting is just NOT our way, we have been told that OUR way is at fault because we now live in a multicultural society and our children in school have been very affectively brainwashed into accepting this new and imposed paradigm of reality in Britain of today.

Before this I was the first to stand up and defend any person of ethnic minority status, now I take my time though I will still defend individual's and hate thug's of any colour or just out and out mindless football style hooligan racism - I am not a racist but Christ said this.

Now after this passage it will include my very personal view, it will not be to everyone's taste.

You hypocrite! First take the beam out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye. 6Do not give dogs what is holy; do not throw your pearls before swine. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and then turn and tear you to pieces. 7Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened to you.

So DO NOT GIVE DOG's WHAT IS HOLY, we were a Christian nation and today having given dog's what is holy we are now a nation that call's itself not a Christian nation but a Multi cultural society.

We gave them home's and benefit's, brought in laws to try to prevent employers discrimination on ground's of race but then they turned and burned our street's and rioted and if they don't get there way - well if that is not casting pearl before swine what is.

All we ask is everyone that lives here to accept the British way of life, to accept our faith and not force there's down our throat's and to act as guests when in our house until the fourth generation as in the bible when we will accept them as us no if's and no but's.

To know what the Dambusters mission in the RAF was in WW2 this seems so trivial.

You know these boys flew Lancasters at tree top level in the middle of the night to deliver a single special bomb. Dodging flak, night fighters and tree tops most of the time. Who cares what someone named their damn dog 80years ago?

Todays spoilt politically correct, militant youth who are still in education at the age

of 21 yrs. would do well to remember this man who died at the age of 26 yrs. for

the freedom that enables them to behave aggressively and without any consideration.

But Hey! that was history seventy six years ago and forgotten already.

What sums up this sh.. show for me is that in the same edition of the guardian, there was a piece calling for Shamima Begum to be allowed back in the UK.
A woman who went off to join a real life, modern Nazi society who practiced genocide, slavery and all sorts of horror.

They're all for forgiving the biatch. While condemning anyone who blacked up for Halloween 30 years ago.

Whats frightening is the liberals are calling her a *child* when she and two

others arranged their complicated transport to their destination in Syria.

But these very same liberals are pushing to lower the voting age to 16 yrs.

/SMH frightening...

Totally, shows just how they don't give a damn and also, the old trope about that sort of lefty being anti patriotic.

Of course, ever since the referendum we've seen their real colours, talking about thick Brexit voters etc as though they would like to reduce suffrage.
