Anyone could write the cretinous columns produced by intellectual vacuum Richard Littlejohn. Come up with a stupid nickname for a politician, add in 'mind how you go' and 'couldn't make it up', drag in some half-true political correctness story, mock Guardian readers and watch your bank balance rocket (up to £800,000 a year, according to some reports)
This week, Littlejohn hates gays.
A London school has taken a cue from Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender History Month to teach pupils about same sex relationships. Outrageous, right? Never mind that 65% of lesbian, gay and bisexual children experience homophobic bullying and so discussing homosexuality in school might be a good idea. He doesn't give a toss about that. Probably just PC, Guardianista propaganda.
Schools talking to their pupils about homosexuality is 'deranged social engineering', 'fatuous drivel' and 'cultural fascism'. His ignorance knows no bounds. He seems to think homosexuality is nuture not nature. He talks about 'parents who choose to tell their children about homosexuality,' as if children who are gay haven't worked out something for themselves already. And you can hear in lines such as 'peddle gay propaganda to children as young as five' some bizarre paranoia about kids being 'turned'.
He even says: 'And why a Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender month, anyway? Why not a Foot Fetishists, Spankers, Sadists and Masochists History Month?' as if these two groups are on a par.
The point of his article however, is that some parents, including Muslim ones, have withdrawn their children from these lessons on religious grounds. Normally, that would be considered by Littlejohn to be a failure to integrate and a reason to bash Islam. Again.
He does have a go at the Muslim PC suing his force, just in case the slack-jawed fans thought he'd totally lost his mojo.
Worth reading from the archives: Littlejohn mentions homosexuality 104 times in 90 columns.
