‘Cultural Sensitivities’ to Blame for Child Grooming in Labour-run Areas
Meanwhile, the many benefits of “multiculturalism” and “diversity” will continue to be pontificated from the pulpits of public media and girls will continue to be groomed, raped, discarded, and forgotten for the greater good of our “ethnically inclusive” society.

Labour-run councillors failed to take action on child grooming gangs due to fears of being labelled “racist” according to Home Secretary Suella Braverman.

“We’ve seen institutions and state agencies – whether it’s social workers, teachers, the police – turn a blind eye to signs of abuse out of political correctness, out of fear of being called racists,” Braverman told Sky News on Sunday.

“What we’ve seen is a practice whereby vulnerable, white, English girls, sometimes in care, sometimes who are in challenging circumstances, being pursued and raped and drugged and harmed by gangs of British-Pakistani, men who’ve worked in child abuse rings or networks.”

The Home Secretary elaborated on this on the BBC’s Sunday with Laura Kuenssberg, stating that Labour-run councils were to blame for the failure to deal with Pakistani grooming gangs in Rochdale and Rotherham in recent years: “If we want to get political about – I didn’t want to get political – but some of these councillors, senior politicians in Labour-run areas, over a period of years, absolutely failed to take action because of cultural sensitivities.”

According to Braverman, Labour councillors had failed to act because of “not wanting to come across as racist, not wanting to call out people along ethnic lines.”

In response to criticisms over her singling out of Pakistani men, the home secretary stated: “There have been several reports since about the predominance of certain ethnic groups – and I say British Pakistani males – who hold cultural values totally at odds with British values, who see women in a demeaned and illegitimate way.”

The statements follow findings from the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse last year that described child sexual abuse as an “epidemic that leaves tens of thousands of victims in its poisonous wake”.

Even members of the British-Pakistani population have recognised the issue and called for it to be addressed. Mohammed Shafiq, chief executive of the Ramadhan Foundation, said of the grooming: “This is not a white conspiracy dreamt up by the far right, or victimisation of the Pakistani community, as some claim. This is a form of racism and we shouldn’t hesitate to condemn it. Blaming or deflecting attention away from the evil men who carry out such actions is despicable.”

Muna Adil, in her report entitled “Group Based Child Exploitation – Dissecting Grooming Gangs,” examined grooming gang cases occurring in the UK since 2005, found that: “There are elements from within the British Pakistani community that still subscribe to outdated and sexist views of women embedded within their jaded interpretations of Islam. These backward views are passed down from generation to generation until the lines between faith and culture dissolve, making it increasingly difficult to criticise one without being seen as a critic of the other.”

With such members of the British-Pakistani community calling out the grooming problem for what it is, Labour’s refusal to act on the grounds of “cultural sensitivity” is even more egregious. The true racism here is found in the unwillingness to hold rapists and abusers to account merely on the basis of their Pakistani heritage; while the groomers themselves are targeting vulnerable young white girls for racist and ideological reasons, with one perpetrator stating as justification that “White girls and non-Muslim girls are bad because you dress like slags.”

Pakistani child grooming is an open secret in the UK and the fact that ethnicity should be disregarded due to “cultural sensitivity” only serves to distort the truth of the matter. When one examines the vigorous anger of the protestors of the #MeToo movement that took to the streets in outrage following the Harvey Weinstein sexual abuse scandal, one may be perplexed by the obvious inconsistency: where is the outrage here?

The sad truth is that no one marches or protests for the thousands of girls that have been abused, raped, and even murdered by Pakistani grooming gangs right here in the UK. No one dares to speak up for them or to decry the perpetrators of such acts, except in vague and dismissive terms. And the reason for this is simple: the victims and perpetrators are simply the wrong race. It doesn’t fit the narrative.

Labour will make their excuses and councils will continue to shift the blame this way or that. Meanwhile, the many benefits of “multiculturalism” and “diversity” will continue to be pontificated from the pulpits of public media and girls will continue to be groomed, raped, discarded, and forgotten for the greater good of our “ethnically inclusive” society.
