Imagine if more than a thousand girls, some as young as 11, were sexually exploited by members of a fundamentalist religious cult. Now imagine that authorities refused to act to stop this heinous abuse of young girls because of their fear of offending public opinion.
Except you don’t have to imagine this. It actually happened.
And the fundamentalist religious cult? Yeah: Islam.
UK HORRIFIC REVELATIONS: How fear of being
called ‘racist’ prevented social workers from
rescuing up to 1,400 mostly white girl children
from sexual abuse and exploitation by
Muslim sex ‘grooming’ gangs in just one town!
That headline at Bare Naked Islam is rather inflammatory, but it’s difficult to describe this story in a way that is non-inflammatory. If you have even the slightest shred of human decency in your soul, this is a story that will make you scream bloody murder. Donald Douglas has this (slightly) less inflammatory headline at American Power:
Fear is a powerful incentive. Severe legal and social sanctions against the expression of “racism” have had the effect in England, as in the United States, of making it impossible to speak honestly about race relations. The situation in England is doubly difficult, because so many of their racial minorities — immigrants from Pakistan, Bangladesh, etc., whom the British call “Asians” — are also Muslims.
Americans are often shocked when their own opposition to radical Islam is called “racism,” because Islam is a religion, not a race. In England and much of Europe, however, the racial and religious categories overlap to such a degree as to be nearly indistinguishable. Christianity has so declined in secularized Europe that the fact their burgeoning immigrant population is Muslim is less obvious than the fact the immigrants are brown-skinned, and so “racism” is the accusation commonly leveled against European critics of the cultural jihad. Fear of being branded “racist” therefore paralyzed officials in Rotherham, England:
The sexual abuse of about 1,400 children at the hands of Asian men went unreported for 16 years because staff feared they would be seen as racist, a report said today.
Children as young as 11 were trafficked, beaten, and raped by large numbers of men between 1997 and 2013 in Rotherham, South Yorkshire, the council commissioned review into child protection revealed.
And shockingly, more than a third of the cases were already know to agencies.
But according to the report’s author: ‘several staff described their nervousness about identifying the ethnic origins of perpetrators for fear of being thought racist’.
Professor Alexis Jay, who wrote the report, condemned the ‘blatant’ collective failures by the council’s leadership, concluding: ‘It is hard to describe the appalling nature of the abuse that child victims suffered.’
The landmark report which exposed widespread failures of the council, police and social services revealed:
- Victims were doused in petrol and threatened with being set alight, terrorised with guns, made to witness brutally-violent rapes and told they would be the next if they spoke out;
- They were raped by multiple perpetrators, trafficked to other towns and cities in the north of England, abducted, beaten and intimidated;
- One victim described gang rape as ‘a way of life’;
- Police ‘regarded many child victims with contempt’;
- Some fathers tried to rescue their children from abuse but were arrested themselves;
- The approximate figure of 1,400 abuse victims is likely to be a conservative estimate of the true scale of abuse.
The lack of reports was partly down to a fear of being racist, Prof Jay wrote, as the majority of the perpetrators were described as ‘Asian men’, and many were said to be of Pakistani origin.
One young person told the inquiry that ‘gang rape’ was a usual part of growing up in the area of Rotherham where she lived. . . .
The failures happened despite three reports between 2002 and 2006 ‘which could not have been clearer in the description of the situation in Rotherham’. . . .
Teachers reported seeing children as young as 11, 12 and 13 being picked up outside schools by cars and taxis, given presents and mobile phones and taken to meet large numbers of unknown men in Rotherham or other local towns and cities.
You can read the whole thing at the Daily Mail. If this story sounds rather familiar to regular readers, it’s because I reported on a quite similar story from Derbyshire nearly four years ago:
- Nov. 26, 2010: Muslim Men Led U.K. Girl-Rape Gang
- Nov. 27, 2010: Report: ‘Issues of Culture, Ethnicity and Identity’ Raised in U.K. Rape-Gang Case
- Nov. 30, 2010: Muslim Columnist: U.K. Rape Gang Case Exposes ‘Disgusting Cultural Beliefs’
That “rape gang” story in 2010 exposed the shocking extent of what can only be described as cultural decadence in England. In most cases, the young white girls who are exploited are from what used to be called the “working class,” but who are in fact part of the Welfare Class. People in America who complain about welfare are accused of racism because of the mental association — welfare = “inner city” = black — that is a common stereotype.
Yet every problem caused by welfare policies in America, which we mentally associate with “inner city” blacks, is also evident among the white “inner city” population of England. The population of Great Britain is about 95% white, and England’s lower-class welfare-mooching ghetto scum are no less demoralized and crime-prone despite the fact that they are also overwhelmingly white.
Everything you might say about “inner city” culture in America can be applied to the lower-class whites in Great Britain who have been morally corrupted by their cradle-to-grave welfare system. Unwed motherhood, educational failure, drug addiction, violent thuggery — white people are entirely capable of these things, once they succumb to the self-pitying slothful dependency of welfare culture.
Our provincialism prevents Americans from recognizing what this means in terms of our own welfare policies, simply because no American can criticize welfare without being suspected of racism. Political correctness creates this helpless confusion, a confusion that is every bit as dangerous as the attitudes which prevented authorities in Rotherham from doing something about the dreadful exploitation of lower-class white girls — mere girls, some of them as young as 11 or 12 — by rape gangs of young Muslim men. Of course, American feminists who hector us about “rape culture” on college campuses won’t say a word about this story.
Feminism’s alliance with the Democrat Party implicates them in the welfare culture that enables the sexual exploitation of young girls. If you’re waiting for feminists to demonstrate their intellectual integrity, you’ll be waiting until Hell freezes over.
