What does it mean to balance cultural beliefs? It means the tenets of Western culture: practices, mores, standards etc. will be
ignored decimated to accommodate the immigrants/refugees/illegal aliens culture because we don’t want anyone’s feelings to be hurt and God forbid we should demand anyone coming into OUR nations assimilate into OUR culture.
Here’s how balancing works.
Let’s take healthcare. In all Western nations, hand washing is the FIRST line of defense against spreading disease. All healthcare workers are taught this, commercials advertise this, children are taught this. It’s a standard of practice. NO disposable glove or gel hand sanitizer will replace it. The brilliant Englishman, Doctor Joseph Lister figured out the necessity of hand washing in the 1850’s. Fast forward to today where now we have the cultural Marxist con job called multiculturalism and you have the Western culture destroying practice of balancing.
From the UK Telegraph we read
“Muslim staff escape NHS hygiene rule
Muslim doctors and nurses are to be allowed to opt out of strict hygiene rules introduced by the NHS to restrict the spread of hospital superbugs.
That’s right. They don’t need to follow the clothing, jewelry and hand washing standards that “restrict” which means prevent the spread of disease. Superbugs are germs that cause disease.
Female staff who follow the Islamic faith will be allowed to cover their arms to preserve their modesty despite earlier guidance that all staff should be “bare below the elbow”.
Can’t have infection control standards interfering with modesty now can we? Why should a healthcare worker be “bare below the elbow” and not wear long sleeves? Because their clothing transfers germs from patient to patient.
The Department of Health has also relaxed rules prohibiting jewellery so that Sikh members of staff can wear bangles linked with their faith, providing they are pushed up the arm while the medic treats a patient.
Won’t having some poop laden bracelet dangling in your wound be fun? Think the bracelet wearing so-called healthcare workers scrub their jewelry between patients? Not a chance in hell.
The Mail on Sunday reported the change had been made after female Muslims objected to being required to expose their arm below the elbow under guidance introduced by Alan Johnson when he was health secretary in 2007.
Gee, she didn’t like exposing her arm. I have a solution. Leave.
The rules were drawn up to reduce the number of patients who were falling ill, and even dying, from superbugs such as MRSA and Clostridium difficile.
Yes, the rules prevent the spread of disease and death, but we can’t have that, there might be hurt feelings. No hurt feelings are allowed.
Revised guidance which relaxed the requirements for some religions was published last month.
“Relaxed” means eliminated. In other words, they are no longer required to follow hygienic practices like not wearing long sleeves, not wearing dangling bracelets, scrubbing arms and hands that spread disease from patient to patient.
Some Muslim staff and those from other groups may be allowed to use disposable plastic over-sleeves which cover their clothes below the elbow and allow the skin to remain covered up.
NOTHING replaces hygiene practices created by Western man to prevent disease and death. Nothing.
Derek Butler, chairman of MRSA Action UK, said: “My worry is that allowing some medics to use disposable sleeves you compromise patient safety because unless you change the sleeves between each patient, you spread bacteria.
If they claim showing their forearm is immodest, how many do you think will change their sleeves between patients?
“Scrubbing bare arms is far more effective.”
He said it. Washing is MORE effective. Period. Do you need to know more?
A Department of Health spokesman said: “The guidance is intended to provide direction to services in how they can balance infection control measures with cultural beliefs without compromising patient safety.”
Balancing infection control measures with cultural beliefs while not compromising patient safety is NOT possible.
Non Western Cultural beliefs should NOT take precedence over Western healthcare standards. What non Western people choose to do in THEIR countries is okay with me.
Next time you hear they want to balance cultural beliefs you will know what they really mean. Simply more Cultural Marxist BS designed to destroy Western civilization.
