Mother Busted for Daughter’s Doll

One nice thing about politically correct totalitarianism is that it allows anyone to be arrested at any time for any reason. For example, a mother in Manchester was arrested and had her DNA and fingerprints recorded by the police because someone saw a golly doll in her window.

Amanda Schofield claims her daughter left it there after finding it in a box of other toys. But a neighbor turned her in on suspicion of having wicked racist designs.

Golly dolls are prized collectibles, which can sell for over £1,000. From Jane’s Irish, a site that sells handmade Irish crafts and gifts:

Gollywogs, or Golly Dolls have been around for quite a while in Ireland. The Gollywog developed as a household toy after Africans started to come to Ireland from the African missions to study at universities and seminaries in Dublin and Maynooth. […] Withstanding time, Golly Dolls retain their unique place alongside Teddy bears and dolls as companions, and remain an integral part of Irish life.

However, the dolls are now seen by PC purists as symbols of racism, so if your daughter owns one, make sure she keeps it away from neighbors’ prying eyes, or you might hear an unwelcome knock on the door.

Racist dolls.
