“What a god-awful mess this country has got itself into over multiculturalism, and once again our fear of racism will lead to the betrayal of hundreds of young girls...How wrong can a well-meaning liberal journalist be? The man and the attitudes are here, Allison, for precisely the reason stated. To break the spirit’ and to ‘brand.’ Those you rail against here are at war with us, you see. They have been for a very long time.
Rochdale, Rotherham, Derby, Oxford. The towns change, but the pattern is always the same. Gangs of men, mainly of Pakistani Muslim heritage, lure white girls as young as 10 with gifts and displays of affection. Next, the girl is raped as a way of 'breaking her in.'
Once the child’s spirit is subdued, and her mind fogged with drugs, she is sold for sex to multiple men at £200 a time. If the girl tries to break away, a gang member might threaten to behead her or firebomb her home. Mohammed Karrar, who was found guilty in the Oxford sex-grooming case this week, took a scalding hairpin and branded one girl so she would know she was his property.
Later, the gang gave the same girl a DIY abortion. She was 12 years old. And this, all this, is happening in Britain now.
In a particularly warped twist, the pimp will teach his victim that her parents are racist towards Asians, which is why they disapprove of their relationship, absolutely nothing, of course, to do with him being a violent, controlling thug.
Gang members have grown wise to the wimpy ways of Western society. They exploit the fact that police, newly trained in ‘cultural sensitivity,’ are terrified of being accused of racism. So the pimps operate with impunity until, years later, the slave girls find the courage to testify in court against their masters. We all know what happens next, don’t we?
Leaders of the Pakistani Muslim community, essentially a Victorian society that has landed like Doctor Who’s Tardis on a liberal, permissive planet it despises, are at pains to deny that the grooming gang’s behaviour has anything to do with ethnic origin or contemptible attitudes towards women.
Then Sue Berelowitz, the lamentably foolish deputy children’s commissioner, trots out her lame line that Asian men targeting white girls is ‘just one of a number of models,’ even though such ‘models’ account for an improbably large proportion of all gang sexual abuse.
Did Berelowitz not hear Nazir Afzal, Chief Crown Prosecutor for North West England, when he blamed ‘imported cultural baggage’ for appalling crimes by members of his own community? ‘The men think that women are some lesser being,’ he said.
The chief constable who was in charge while all that torture and rape was going on in Oxford appeared on Radio 4’s Today programme yesterday and said that she took ‘full responsibility’ for shocking police failures. But, no, Sara Thornton, head of Thames Valley Police, would not be resigning. Why ever not? Because saying you take responsibility is the new not taking responsibility, stupid.
All that remains is for the panel on tonight’s Question Time to do a little gentle hand-wringing about the Oxford horrors before it concludes that no particular group is implicated in these vile, misogynistic crimes.
And, once again, the fear of racism will have trumped sexism, and hundreds of young girls, or the ‘hollow shells’ of girls, as one tearful copper called them, will be betrayed. Then we can all sit back comfortably and wait till the next hideous court case comes along, probably in Bradford, where at least 30 men have been arrested in the past few months over child sex-grooming allegations…
Back in January, there was a profoundly disturbing case at Nottingham Crown Court. Adil Rashid, who had ‘raped’ an underage girl, was spared a prison term after the judge heard that the naïve 18-year-old attended an Islamic faith school where he was taught that women are worthless.
Rashid told psychologists he had no idea that having sex with a willing 13-year-old was against the law; besides, his education had taught him to believe that ‘women are no more worthy than a lollipop that has been dropped on the ground.’
If the fresh-faced Rashid had picked up that view in a madrassa in Karachi it would be profoundly depressing, though not surprising. But the school he attended was in Birmingham, for heaven’s sake! Although it cannot be named for ‘legal reasons,’ the school is voluntary-aided, mainly funded by the taxpayer.
At this hugely popular Islamic school, where a majority of pupils are from a Pakistani background, boys and girls are taught in separate classes; a segregation policy no normal comprehensive could get away with.
Rashid’s barrister said: ‘The school he attended, it is not going too far to say, can be described as a closed community.’ So, the defence against a rape charge by a young Muslim living in 21st-century Britain was not just ignorance of the law (which should be no defence at all). It was that the law and, indeed, the values of the wider country, were irrelevant in his Islamic school, even though it was a state institution funded by citizens who would go straight to jail if, for instance, they tried to have sex with a child.
The fact that the judge accepted Rashid’s defence shows what a god-awful mess this country has got itself into over multiculturalism. I reckon Britons in a hundred years’ time will look back at us in outraged astonishment for allowing Islamic schools to flout the laws of the land and teach boys that women are worthless...
If you teach boys that a female is no better than a lollipop that has been dropped on the ground, eventually you produce a pimp who thinks that you break a girl’s spirit as though she were a horse, before branding her with your initial. That man and those attitudes have no place, no place at all, in Britain now.”
Unfortunately, folks like you are only waking up to this fact now and still you don’t dare see it for what it actually is. Even more unfortunately, you and yours will never acknowledge the fact that British Nationalists (those who give a damn about the British nation and its people – it says so on the tin) were trying to warn their fellows about these matters decades ago. And were routinely sneered at and demonised for doing so.
When the BNP and the EDL protest the beheading of a British soldier on British streets by Muslim fanatics, guess what the ‘far-right extremists’ are really doing? ‘Trying to capitalise on the murder of Lee Rigby to fuel racial hatred,’ according to ‘Muslim leaders.’
And, of course, those who are at war with us, because they wish the war to continue, will all agree with this judgement.
Are you still sneering at those who spoke out decades before you did, Allison? Are you still smearing them with PC bogey words? Are you still tarring the BNP, the National Front, the English Defence League and, nowadays, even UKIP with the racism calumny?
Have you ever given a Fascist, Nazi, bigot credit for speaking out when you would not? Or would you, even now, be tempted to utilise the routine establishment jargon when those who truly care protest?
If such as yourself had only listened to Enoch Powell when he spoke out forty five years ago, if you had only listened to the people when they reacted so positively to his speech, much of the horror our little girls are now forced to endure would have been prevented. And the war waged upon the British people by those they vote for would have ended long ago.
Nevertheless, keep catching up, Allison. Nowadays, much of your heart appears to be in the right place.
