White, Christian Rape Victims? Check Your Privilege


September 9, 2014 (TheRightsWriter.com) – One of the most unsettling acts of modern day sexual jihad went unnoticed in the UK over the last 16 years because of institutional racism – against white girls.

In all, gangs of mostly Pakistani Muslims exploited 1,400 British girls as young as 11 before gang-raping them and sexually trafficking them in one city alone. The gangs would have a young man befriend a vulnerable girl, often from a broken home, posing as her “boyfriend” and winning her trust. At some point, the young girls from Rotherham were locked in a room with the young man's relatives, viciously gang-raped, videotaped, then trafficked through a circuit of British cities, where they would receive similar treatment again, and again, and again. Each girl was reportedly worth $300,000 a year to the gangs. “I very much become like an object, and that's how they treated me," one of their victims, who had to flee the country, said.

If the girls complained, they were beaten, their families were threatened, or they were held at gunpoint. In 2001, a 15-year-old girl came forward after being trafficked in three cities – but her abuser found her, doused her in gasoline, and threatened to set her on fire if she went public.

The cycle continued despite the fact that authorities knew, or strongly suspected, human trafficking was taking place in the area as early as 1997. In 2010, five men were arrested – Adil Hussain, Razwan Razaq, Mohsin Khan, Umar Razaq, and Zafran Ramzan. – all British-born Pakistanis. One of them told his victim he was glad he had “used and abused” the “white bitch.”

Yet a 153-page report released on August 21 by Professor Alexis Jay shows that the abuse continued through last year, often being dismissed or ignored by government officials and policemen.

How could such a thing occur? In part, 1,400 British girls were gang-raped for years thanks to the sexual revolution. Police ignored the case of a 12-year-old girl who had sex with five “Asian” men, because the sex had been – in the words of the Criminal Investigation Department – “100 percent consensual in every incident.” Consensual? Since when could a prepubescent consent to have sex, much less with half of Peshawar?

But another was the intersection of ethnicity, culture, and religion – something the feminists call “kyriarchy.” That unintentionally revealing term is an attempt to synthesize political correctness in every situation. The fact that they are females is in their favor. But white, Christian, middle class (the petite bourgeoisie, the harbinger of traditional values?) girls accusing poor, innocent, persecuted Muslim immigrants – some from former British colonial holdings like Pakistan – of shocking (not to mention anti-Christian and racist) behavior? Polite society would hear none of it.

Sorry, British girls, check your privilege.

Jay reports, “Several staff described their nervousness about identifying the ethnic origins of perpetrators for fear of being thought racist; others remembered clear direction from their managers not to do so.”

The powers that be ignored a mountain of evidence that the innocent were being exploited, because they feared white racism or anti-Muslim sentiment more than the credible threat of pedophilia. “Several councillors interviewed believed that by opening up these issues they could be 'giving oxygen' to racist perspectives that might in turn attract extremist political groups and threaten community cohesion,” Jay wrote.

So in their eyes, protests from the British National Party and the English Defense League posed a greater threat to “community cohesion” than serial pedophilia, assault, and potential immolation.

All of this is perfect explicable in a society motivated by left-wing notions of political correctness.“If racism is a mysterious airborne virus that shapes people’s behavior without their realizing it, then why should an ordinary copper take the risk of even noticing a case with racial overtones? If he cannot avoid involvement, why not take the side of the 'disadvantaged ethnic minority' — especially when it has such advantages as powerful friends and helpful pressure groups?” National Review editor-at-large John O'Sullivan writes. “And if the powerful friends sense that police intervention might threaten their ethnic electoral support, then a quiet word in the right place will ensure that the problem 'goes away.'”

“In reality, however, the problem metastasizes — until, as in Rotherham, it becomes so massive, toxic, and embarrassing that the authorities join the criminals in concealing it, to the continued detriment of its victims,” he adds.

When the authorities did get involved, Jay wrote that they relied upon Muslim “community leaders,” including “imams,” who proved less than helpful in turning over their fellow Muslims to the infidels.

In an unthinkable twist, the girls or their parents were sometimes arrested while their abusers remained free. Police ignored the testimony of an 11-year-old girl who reported being abused by several men, even though she was associated with a known sex abuser. They later arrested her, in a house full of men, for being drunk and disorderly. (Hmm, wonder who gave her the alcohol?)

Just as police demeaned mothers for refusing to believe that their girls were “growing up,” so they implied that fathers just needed to accept that their daughters wanted to have sex with dusky men. The London Telegraph reports that Jay “identified two separate cases where fathers who had tracked their daughters down and were trying to remove them from houses where they were being abused, were themselves arrested.” White men trying to keep their daughters away from “Asian” males? Obvious racism and fear of miscegenation!

Of course, officials say despite missing three previous investigations and an abundance of leads, the situation is now fixed; therefore, there need be no personnel changes. South Yorkshire Police PCC Shaun Wright resigned from the Labor Party but is keeping his current position, saying, “Protecting vulnerable people has been my number one priority as Police and Crime Commissioner for South Yorkshire.” A statement released on his behalf said, “He is more determined than ever to lead a Police Force that effectively roots out the evil criminals who carry out such disgraceful abuse to South Yorkshire children and brings them to justice.”

One should hope so.

The first reform any agency so thoroughly culpable as this police force should make – after firing every officer involved – is to jettison the socially liberal, secular progressive ideology that led to this catastrophe. No community deserves immunity from investigation of child molestation, particularly for a reason as insignificant as its shared ethnic background or religion.

Officials throughout the West must understand the inherently violent texts within the Koran and the interpretation they are given by fundamentalist imams around the world. In much of the Islamic world, an unveiled woman is considered promiscuous and “deserving” of rape. Thus, an unreported global Muslim rape spree has spread throughout Europe. Time magazine reported that as many as 88 men raped a 13-year-old girl in France over four months in 2002 before she found the courage to report them. The same Islamist insanity motivated the Rotherham rape ring.

The UK, and the West, should also rethink the immigration policy that encouraged the massive increase in Muslim immigrants and the multicultural policy that bid them remain separate and unassimilated. The UK’s immigration policy was reportedly designed by Labor Party stalwarts to change the electorate of the UK and “humiliate” the middle class.

Judging from Rotherham – bravo, Labor, bravo.

Let Muslim leaders in the UK and throughout the West sign public documents saying that they disavow “violent physical jihad” as “un-Islamic” – the formulation proposed by UKIP Member of European Parliament Gerard Batten. And let them prove it by their deeds, or let them find their way to a maximum security prison or a plane back to the Dar al-Islam.

If Muslims wish to live in Western societies, let them adopt Western mores. But the West will have to adopt them first.
