Britain’s culture of political correctness has shut the mouths of police and government institutions to an ugly social trend.
On January 5, the Times of London newspaper carried on its front and inside pages a major exposé of what it called a “conspiracy of silence” in Britain among police, social workers and charities that has allowed organized gangs of Muslim men to prey on young British girls.
The Times article prompted MP and ex-Foreign Secretary Jack Straw to comment on mainstream news program Newsnight that “there is a specific problem which involves Pakistani men … who target vulnerable young white girls.” Predictably, his comments drew howls of protest from fellow Labor members of Parliament for “perpetuating racist attitudes.” This completely ignored the racist selection of white British victims by their Pakistani predators.
Concern is such that a nationwide investigation is to be launched by a specialist police child-abuse unit into this trend of Muslim men targeting girls as young as 11, plying them with drink and drugs for prostitution. Police Chief Inspector Alan Edwards was quoted as saying, “To stop this type of crime we need to start talking about it, but everyone’s been too scared to address the ethnicity factor.” Such is the legacy of the culture of political correctness which disallows racial profiling in crime investigations.
Calling this insidious trend “the plague on Northern Towns,” the Times article identified that 50 of 56 men found guilty were Muslims, while just three were white, saying that police operations over the last 10 years have revealed a “disturbingly similar pattern of collective abuse involving hundreds of victims.”
Instead of exposing and ruthlessly prosecuting this behavior, the British establishment, including MPs, the bbc and police, have continued to maintain a culture of silence on the issue.
Former detective superintendent Mike Gradwell told the Daily Mail on Tuesday that the police could not speak out about Asian sex gangs for fear of appearing “institutionally racist,” and said the targeting of underage and vulnerable girls had been going on for decades. He added: “Young girls are being abused and raped and yet the most senior officers are refusing to comment on it. On what other subject would you get that?”
One nationalist politician who spoke out about the scandal in 2004 was arrested after his comments were broadcast in a bbc documentary. He was charged with “using words likely to stir up racial hatred,” and after two long trials in Leeds Crown Court in November 2006, was eventually acquitted of all charges when he quoted passages from the Koran in his defense.
His trial would have contributed to the fear of mentioning this subject in Britain today, which is why the Times exposé is so extraordinary.
Unbelievably, some Muslim leaders are now saying that white girls are to blame for these crimes committed against them because of their dress. Yet from oft-publicized cases, the burka has never guaranteed the safety of Islamic women from the sadistic behavior of some Islamic men.Now that the subject is being discussed, expect tensions to rise as racial, cultural and religious divisions lead eventually to the race riots and widespread chaos in British cities. Had successive British governments stuck to this one binding principle, we would not have Muslim Pakistanis racially profiling young white British girls for the heinous crime of pedophilia.
The duplicity of the British mass media is revealed through its great hue and cry over priestly pedophilia in the Catholic Church and its damning silence on racially oriented Islamic pedophilia.
Fair and balanced reporting? Hardly!
