I formed the opinion that the tide of public opinion had turned shortly after the jihadi murder of Lee Rigby in 2013. Gradually, through jihad attacks abroad, the growing horror of the Muslim rape gangs in England (and it will be happening in the big cities of Wales and Scotland also, make no mistake), and more jihadi attacks on home soil. But whether Trevor Phillips and the MSM journalists have had the scales fall from their eyes, or this is a shrewd effort that having noticed how public opinion has changed (and to an opinion contrary to the views the MSM has been trying to shape) they think it wise to keep on what will be the right side of history early, I don’t know. But as what they are now saying, in this morning’s newspapers, is what my comrades and I have been saying for the best part of 15 years I will be glad that they seem now to agree with us.
Britain’s courts should treat Asian Muslim grooming gangs behind the abuse of hundreds of white teenage girls as racially aggravated criminals, leading MPs and campaigners have demanded.
The demand was issued as senior politicians and prosecutors admitted that political correctness may have stopped the gangs being properly pursued and punished after another ring of Asian mainly muslim sex offenders was convicted in Newcastle.
The Attorney General was facing calls to review the sentences of several members of the 18-strong Newcastle gang after it emerged the apparently racially-aggravated nature of their crimes was not reflected in their punishment… During one of the trials the jury heard how one gang member referred to women as “white trash” who were “only good for one thing”.
Lord MacDonald, the former Director of Public Prosecutions said it was clear these were “profoundly racist crimes” and said the issue needed to be confronted head on.
Mike Penning, a former policing and justice minister, urged Jeremy Wright, the Attorney General to consider reviewing the offences to take account of the racial element. He said: “Some of them freely admitted that their attitude to these girls was based on race. If that’s the case then this is a racially motivated crime and the sentence should and must reflect that. . . “
Newcastle is the latest city where a South Asian gang has been exposed as being at the centre of a child sexual exploitation ring, responsible for targeted abuse against vulnerable white girls. It follows similar cases in Rotherham, Rochdale and Oxford, prompting calls for a national debate about why there is such a problem within certain communities, particularly those from Pakistan. If you want the answer read Peter McLoughlin’s two books; Easy Meat is readily available and published by us, Mohammed’s Koran, in conjunction with Tommy Robinson was published last week.
Trevor Philips, former chair of the Equality and Human Rights Commission, said that the grooming gangs should not be called Asians, but Muslims. He writes-
It’s official. The BBC has finally given itself permission to acknowledge – in passing – that the spate of gang-related child abuse scandals scarring English towns and cities is being carried out predominantly by men of “Asian” origin. Even so, the most important aspect of the story was deemed to be the fact that Northumbria Police had paid an informer, himself a convicted abuser, to help crack the case. No doubt desperate to avoid being accused of stigmatising a community, the BBC did its best to turn this utterly routine practice into a matter of controversy.
But even its own journalists were embarrassed by the ploy. Mark Easton, the Corporation’s redoubtable home affairs editor, broke the long taboo on the Ten O’Clock News, speaking passionately of the dozens of cases in which gangs of “predominantly Asian men [are] sexually exploiting predominantly young white women and girls”.
Labour, hitherto lamentably limp on the issue in deference to its dependence on minority voters, spoke up, too. Sarah Champion, MP for Rotherham, abandoned the weaselly standby that “abusers come from all communities” to call this crime what it is: an organised assault on white children by people from a specific minority group.
These men are not just dark-skinned perverts. Most white abusers join paedophile rings in order to satisfy their sexual desire more easily. These gangs, in contrast, are motivated by greed, machismo and contempt for people not of their own ethnicity. The “Asian” gangs became child abusers because they are cynical, cruel criminals, not the other way around. And the scale of their crimes is industrial. . .
Dame Louise Casey’s unflinching report last year laid the horror bare; and spoke of the political corruption that allowed it to go unchecked. To Ms Champion’s credit, she dismissed criticism from what she called “the floppy Left”, saying that the authorities had consistently ignored these crimes because “people are more afraid to be called racist than they are afraid to be wrong about calling out child abuse”.
This new-found frankness is wholly welcome.
But as the impressive Chief Constable of Northumbria, Steve Ashman, told the media, these crimes will never be prevented unless and until we can speak openly about what is taking place. Unfortunately, we still have some way to go. For example, while most of the perpetrators are indeed Asian they are not all Pakistani; and Mr Ashman said yesterday that his force had arrested Iraqis, Afghans, Turks and people from other nationalities.
Labelling this phenomenon an “Asian” crime is therefore an evasion. It also insults the largest single ethnic minority group in the UK – Hindu Indians – who consider themselves Asian, and the many East Asians who have made the UK their home. Neither group has been even remotely associated with these crimes. Music to my ears..
What the perpetrators have in common is their proclaimed faith. They are Muslims, and many of them would claim to be practising. It is not Islamophobic to point this out….
If we are going to call a spade a spade, then we should do so without embarrassment. But our elites have replaced their old fear of being called racist with a new bogey. It comes to something when the BBC prefers to risk being condemned for racism than expose itself to the charge of Islamophobia.
