The man who has been leading the protests against Anderton Park primary school’s teaching of lessons about LGBT relationships has posted videos encouraging people to get behind Independent Labour candidate for Birmingham Hall Green, Roger Godsiff. In one of the videos (see below), he talks about children being taught to masturbate and 'stick their fingers up their arse'.
Shakeel Afsar is urging voters to back Mr Godsiff in the forthcoming election. The former Labour MP was this week deselected by the Party after he sided with the anti-LGBT-lessons protesters in the summer.
In one video, Mr Afsar says that Mr Godsiff, who he refers to as a “friend of Muslims”, is the only politician who has stood up for parents locally.
In another video, he tells viewers that the reason they should vote for Mr Godsiff is because "when you have children and they teach your children to stick their fingers up their arse, then you won't be very happy with that. When they teach your children how to masturbate, you won't be too happy with that."
In a statement released yesterday, Mr Godsiff claimed he was a “human sacrifice" to "the small group within the LGBT community who are fanatically opposed to parents having any say in how their four to five-year-old children are taught highly sensitive issues such as sexual orientation and gender assignment".
