DENYING AN ETHNIC LINK IN SEX GANGS CASE IS BLINKERED
THE hypocrisy of the politically correct brigade is truly nauseating. These noisy zealots constantly trumpet their commitment to women’s rights, anti-racism and the protection of the vulnerable.
Yet, suddenly, when confronted with the reality of vicious sexual exploitation of young white girls by Asian men, they drop their supposedly cherished principles.
Instead they either deny the existence of the issue or, even worse, they collude with abusers by attacking those who tell the truth.
In recent days these grotesque double standards have been fully on display in the wake of new evidence about the prevalence of Asian sex gangs within our society.
Last week two Muslim men from Derby, Mohammed Liaqat and Abid Saddique, were jailed for raping several young girls after plying them with drugs and alcohol. The conviction of these two vile predators came on top of a new report from the Jill Dando Institute of Crime Science, which warned of the growing incidence of this kind of systematic abuse by Pakistani offenders.
Another study last week, based on an analysis of 17 major prosecutions since 1997 for grooming and sexual exploitation of girls aged 11 to 16, showed that of the 56 men found guilty, 53 were Asian.
Responding to these revelations, the former Home Secretary Jack Straw abandoned the usual conspiracy of denial from the political establishment. In refreshingly frank language, he told the BBC that there was a “specific problem” with some Pakistani men who prey on young white girls because “they think they are easy meat”.
Predictably, Straw’s comments caused a huge storm. Muslim groups called his views “deeply offensive” while MP Keith Vaz said the remarks were “pretty dangerous”. The chief executive of the children’s charity Barnardo’s Martin Narey warned in handwringing tones about the potential stereotyping of Pakistani men.
Clearly, morality should not be inverted by the dogma of political correctness. In this twisted ideological world, it would seem that the hypersensitivities of an ethnic minority are more keenly protected than the rights of abused girls.
The greatest crime is not the sexual brutality itself but daring to mention the ethnicity of the predators.
It is fascinating to contrast this institutionalised eagerness to dissemble and deny with the almost celebratory glee that drove the coverage of the child abuse scandal in the Catholic church.
It was absolutely right that a fierce light was shone on this culture of exploitation, which inflicted such suffering on the innocent and was the very antithesis of the Christian doctrine of compassion, yet the media and the political elite have shamefully failed to adopt the same vigorous approach towards Asian sex gangs.
To admit the truth would be to admit the failure of Britain’s experiment in multiculturalism. Any difficulties in the creation of the new Britain are entirely the fault of racism among white people. In this narrative of social change, ethnic minorities always have to be cast in a positive light; they can never be seen as the oppressors, only as victims. That is why there has been such a long cover-up over Asian sex crimes. The illusion of multicultural success must be maintained even at the expense of the truth or childhood innocence.
The same is true of reluctance to have an honest debate about forced marriages, or Islamic extremism, or knife crime or gang warfare.
As one mother of an abused girl from Blackburn said: “People are scared it will start a race riot but it is this perception of racism that is putting up a barrier.”
One indicator of this craven mentality from our civic leaders was the decision by the West Yorkshire police in 2004 to demand that Channel 4 postpone the screening of a documentary that highlighted the incidence of Asian grooming of white girls in Bradford.
But the sheer scale of the problem means that the establishment can no longer keep it a dirty secret. It is absurd to pretend that this has nothing to do with Islam. Only the politically blinkered refuse to see that Muslim culture promotes aggressive misogyny against women, who are often treated as little more than chattels.
Muslim men’s attitude towards women outside the faith can be even more contemptuous since they are regarded as
infidels devoid of any morality.
One white woman from Bradford who was repeatedly raped by a Muslim pimp recalled: “He told me I was making him do it because I was sinful, not a true believer, that he would not do it if I was a Muslim.”
It is a tragedy that the cultural values of Pakistan, one of most hellish societies on earth, should have been imported wholesale into our nation.
Jack Straw, who is the MP for Blackburn, might have been robust in language last weekend but we should remember that he was the key figure for 13 years in a Labour government that tore apart the fabric of Britain through its ideological enthusiasm for mass immigration.
It is thanks to Straw and his cronies that parts of our urban landscape now resemble Islamabad, complete with burqas, Sharia law, political corruption and oppression of women. They sowed the wind and we are reaping the whirlwind.
