Rotherham…..Good people will feel shame….. Lots instead will blame the victims…..girls
from disadvantaged backgrounds…..lured with cheap gifts and
false affection….children seen as trash, by rapists as well as the authorities, including the police.…..
It seems all our societies are struggling to deal with angry young men. Earlier there used to be epidemics, wars, and famines that helped in “mowing the lawn,” to reduce the burden of young men who have nothing to live their lives for, nothing to look for in the future. Simultaneously, women are now coming out of the shadows and they are also less willing to tolerate nonsense. Hence the men are facing a crisis situation: you may still take out your frustrations at work by beating up the lady at home, but society (not just the law) is much less forgiving these days.
We have never thought much about the love jihad narrative, but the role of society in trampling the wishes of men over women must not be under-estimated. Why should men (all communities) today get social sanction for multiple marriages?
Even worse, why should men be allowed to get away with abusing women for decades as the men in charge look the other way? Why did the courageous few fathers who attempted to rescue their daughters get arrested instead? Why did the victims themselves get arrested for drinking problems? Why did it take four reports over ten years for the police to acknowledge serious problems? Why was there no community outreach to the women (whites as well as minorities)?
Given powerful evidence of industrial scale sexual abuse, why are there still no public naming and shaming of the responsible officials? Why does it have to be women such as Prof Alexis Jay and Yasmin Alibhai Brown (see below) to stand up for other (all) women?
There have been a few heroes such as Andrew Norfolk of the Times who blew the whistle on the piss-poor performance of the Rotherham police and the child services. We wish there were more folks like him.
Society needs more good men who will lead the youngsters to a path filled with hope, instead of anger. Perhaps an institute for developing male leaders in the new age? Less of the old, my way or the highway boss, more of the enlightened leader-servant. Else we will be on a fast-track to a broken society….as the men fall down, they will also drag the women along with them.
…..report on child sexual
abuse in Rotherham, South Yorkshire, between 1997 and 2013: About 1,400 children
were sexually exploited in Rotherham over a 16-year period, although no
one knows the true scale of exploitation over the years. In more than a
third of these cases the youngsters were already known to child protection agencies.
White experts and officers have for too long been reluctant to
confront serious offences committed by black and Asian people. Such
extreme tolerance is the result of specious morality, that credo that
says investigating such crimes would encourage racism or enrage
community activists and leaders, or, worse, make the professionals
So, instead of saving children who were being gang raped,
drugged, assaulted, threatened and terrorised, they chose to protect
rapists, abusers, traffickers and drug dealers. And themselves.
I can imagine what the talk will be among Asians in
Rotherham today. Good people of course will feel shame. Lots, however,
will not, and instead will blame the system or the victims – young girls
from disadvantaged backgrounds who were lured with cheap gifts and
false affection. Such children are seen as trash, low life, by their
rapists as well as the authorities, including the police.
perpetrators are not paedophiles in the normal sense of the word. Racial
and cultural odium as much as ugly lust and power drives them to abuse.
Most of them are also irreversibly misogynist. It is a lethal mix, this
I partly blame their families and
communities. Too many Asian mothers spoil their boys, undervalue their
girls, and demean their daughters-in-law. Within some British Asian
circles, the West is considered degenerate and immoral. So it’s OK to
take their girls and ruin them further. Some of the most fierce rows I
have ever had have been with Asian women who hold these disgusting
I ask them to think what they would feel if gangs of white
men took out their girls, gave them presents, took them places, and then
seduced, beat and passed them around. The men might say they were
rescuing the girls from oppression, showing them a good time, saving
them from a life of forced marriage and all that.
racists will have further ammunition after this report. Blame those who
did what they did, not those who are brave and just enough to expose
them. I will always fight for the rights of minorities. But I will not
defend the indefensible.
