Parents Lose Custody of Their Children for Teaching them Nazi

Share

Children who were taught Nazi ideology by their parents were taken to the authorities to have a permanent custody of the kids.

A couple from Manitoba province, Canada lost custody of their children when it was found about their attempts to impose Nazi beliefs and racists feelings on their children. Two children, a seven-year-old girl and a two-year-old boy were removed from their parents and are cared by the local Child and Family Services .

The court ruled in favor of the government authorities, who wanted to preserve the children's emotional well-being from their white supremacist parents.

Winnipeg Free Press announced that the case was revealed after the event happening on March 25, when a girl appeared in school with a sign of swastika and Nazi markings "14/88" on her arms and one leg.

The numbers had a Nazi symbolism with 14 referring to a 14 words slogan: "We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children", while 88 refer to the "Heil Hitler" words.

The man is known to be a white supremacist, who cared for his stepdaughter and his son. In 2005 he was presumed to be involved in "hate crimes" related to children. He told that he has dedicated his entire life to being a skinhead and is not going to change. His wife, who called herself a "white nationalist", was considered by court to be unfit for parenting.

Just to clarify a little, the daughter had symbols written on her. Other relatives now care for both children and the oldest, the daughter, has a natural father's and his relatives who are seeking custody. The mother and stepfathe of the girl/father of the baby boy are involved in drugs as well. There are most likely a variety of reasons why they have permanently lost their children that were not published in the newspapers or online. People don't lose their kids for having an unpopular ideology or even an unethical one. Never heard of any who use their young children as billboards to publish hate propaganda though. Nor of any who vow to continue the behaviour. Those factors probably had more to do with the removal of the children.

This is from a black guy's perspective: Parents are going to teach their kids their values and beliefs no matter what. That's natural. Whether they disavow these beliefs or not is a different story entirely.

If you were a communist or even justa New Democratic Party Member, would I have the right to take away your kids because you have a "dangerous leftist" ideology? When things like this are allowed to take place, everybody's freedom of thought is at risk, not just those targeted.

Indoctrinating children with hate ideologies is a form of child abuse. Lazy-minded sociopath adults love to do this for one reason - it's simply a lot easier than indoctrinating someone who has already been nurtured into critical thinking. I have to say I respect this decision as a citizen of the US - where the mother of the abhorrent "Prussian Blue" girls has somehow been deemed fit to continue to raise her poor pathetic little nazi pedo-bait sock-puppet act. But it leads me to think about how many children are indoctrinated with misogyny and homophobia, and more subtle, institutional forms of racism - this can end up just as dangerous and violent, but I immediately think of child protection agencies looking like Romania under Ceauşescu.

well, maybe it IS wrong, to take the kids from their parents, but it's actually also wrong, to say that people of other nationalities are all bad. so i guess i agree that such parents shouldn't bother raising their children... on the other hand there comes another question: 'who should then?'

I dont like this, its not the states right to say "We dont like your ideology, therefore we will take your children." Thats rather, well, Nazi of the Canadian gov't.
Kids often turn out totally opposite from their parents anyway, I know I did.

This is quite a complicated issue. On the one side, everyone has the right for freedom of speech. On the other side, what can be worse than spoiling kid's minds with racist thoughts? May be the government officials could do somehting else than take the kids from their parents, I don't know. In my opinion, it's hard to blame the officials for taking such measures.

"As much as dislike Nazi idealogy, it is a loss for freedom of Speech in Canada. And a loss for the freedom to teach your own children what you believe, even if it is different from everyone else.

If they engaged in crime, or hurt other people, this is different....but I guess talking about nazism is a crime in canada"

I agree with the bottom portion but the rest seems odd. If you read about Hitler's propaganda assistant, Gerbil, you might think differently. He used his "speech" to make movies. These movies made Jews stand up and salute Hitler and march off to their death. Pollution of the mind like this is damaging, and how different is it from the actions depicted above?

40 years from now, one of those kids becomes the next Hitler. I could hear the cries: "Why didn't someone take them away from their parents?!"

Ahh, freedom of speech - God's greatest blessing and god's worst curse.

Well I have to say that though parents have the right to think what they want I don't believe anyone should be able to poison their childs mind with hate, bigotry, or lies. A child doesn't have the same filters on their perceptions to distinguish what is fact and what is false. Being an atheist I hope one day that no parent is allowed to brainwash a child into their way of thinking including; racism, sexism, religion, political affiliation, or anything else that is quite frankly a matter of opinion. A child should be taught but always given a balanced view and left to choose their own path or at the very least left to grow up and then if they choose to accept a BS idea then they at least weren't tricked into it. I plan to teach my child to always question, even the lessons I teach them and find their own set of ideas and beliefs. I don't have the ego that I feel I need another clone of me running around thinking and acting exactly the same as me.

Yeah, white supremacy is unbelievably disgusting and immoral, but why shouldn't they have the right to believe in it? Committing a crime is one thing, but belief systems shouldn't be illegal just because they're extremely unpopular.

They should also be sterilized: the favorite first technique of the Nazis. That'd be a handy lesson and save the public more child care costs.

This is absolutely vile. So so much worse than being a racist or a nazi, is stealing someone's kids based on ideology.
