Insane: Woke UK Government Falsely Claims C.S. Lewis, Tolkien, Orwell All ‘Radicalize’ Kids
Beware parents, if you have the “Lion, Witch and the Wardrobe” in your home library.
It’s actually more than just a children’s story, contends a government office in the United Kingdom.
It’s actually a means to “radicalize” children.
So reports the Christian Institute, which points out that the U.K. government’s “blacklist” of materials includes writings by C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkein, George Orwell and even the BBC.
“What could be more heartwarming than a child stepping through the pages of a book into an enchanting tale of redemption, justice and sacrifice? Where the imaginary can invite the mind to see beyond any concerns or objections to the Gospel and cause it to appear there for the first time in its ‘real potency’?” the report said. “Well, the government begs to differ with C S Lewis — by seemingly categorizing his works, which could include his fairy tales and theological reflections, as potentially ‘radicalising’ to readers.”
The report said the “nonsense” was revealed during a review of the U.K. government’s Prevent counter-terrorism scheme that flagged materials that were “well short of the extremism threshold.”
The report said, ‘Since 2011 Prevent has been more focused on ‘non-violent extremism.’ Its definition of extremism – ‘vocal or active opposition to fundamental British values, including democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of different faiths and beliefs’ – has been widely criticized for endangering free speech.”

The Christian Institute noted that in reality, “Ideas put forward by people once thought seditious, dangerous or just plain crazy have greatly blessed our land and others. Democracy needs dissent, and silencing it undermines its very foundations.”
It said it has published a booklet, “The little book of non-violent extremists,” to point out that “historic pioneers such as Martin Luther King and Rosa Parks could have been labelled as extremists for advocating overturning society’s view on segregation.”
And Lewis was a “dogwhistle for the ‘Extreme Right-Wing’ movement,” according to the government, the institute charged.
It said the schemes are just the latest way for activists to weaponize counter-terrorism concerns to bash opinions they dislike.
“Back in 2015, an Institute-led campaign gained a key victory when the government ditched a section of Prevent guidance that would have forced university societies in Britain, such as Christian Unions, to hand over external speakers’ talks two weeks in advance for vetting,” it noted.
EDITOR’S NOTE: Long the world’s most Christian nation, America today is being taken over by a new “official” national religion, one being imposed on the entire populace by every major societal institution, from government, media and big tech, to academia, entertainment and business.
This new state religion is Wokeism. “Going woke” conjures up visions of someone claiming to be acutely sensitive (“awake”) to “systemic social and political injustice.” And not just alleged bigotry against blacks, but toward every other “minority” as well, from LGBT folk – especially everything transgender and “nonbinary” – to “undocumented immigrants.” All of them, being VICTIMS, intrinsically more virtuous than the shameful oppressor class: primarily heterosexual white males.
This new “woke” consciousness has turned America upside-down – from the nationwide Antifa and Black Lives Matter riots in 2020, to tearing down of historic monuments, to demanding multi-million-dollar reparation payments for blacks, to appointing transgenders as top government officials, to rampant reverse discrimination in every area of life, to the U.S. military imposing mandatory “diversity training” and transgender pronoun use on all personnel, causing recruitment to disastrously plummet.
Yet there is hope. Being “saved” – which in Wokeism is called being “woke” – is largely a matter of worshipping victimhood by becoming an “ally” and “defender” of all the many victim classes, and a determined enemy of the straight white male oppressor class. Thus, “joining the righteous” as an ally – even if one is cursed to be a straight white male – opens the door mercifully for salvation, even to the most wretched.
That is the power of the religion of Wokeism. And it’s explored as never before in the February 2023 issue of WND’s critically acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine. If you’ve ever wondered, for example, exactly how the most radical elements in American society are successfully pressuring the biggest corporations into adopting the most outrageous and immoral policies imaginable, even when doing so permanently damages and devalues the company, the stunning answers are in this issue of Whistleblower, titled “WOKEISM: AMERICA’S OFFICIAL STATE RELIGION.”
