Friends of Rape: How Feminist Liberals Help Sex-Crime to Flourish

Tobias Langdon


Deafeningly. That’s how liberals would have reacted if the victims in Rotherham had been Pakistani, the rapists White and the cover-up organized by the Conservative party and its allies in the right-wing media. If the scandal had been like that, the Guardian would have boiled with righteous wrath and indignation: “The horror of it. At least 1,400 victims subject to sixteen years of rape, torture and degradation. These right-wing officials and journalists should be put on trial for their active, wilful complicity in these racist atrocities. Then we should lock them up and throw away the key.”

I think it would have gone something like that. But alas for liberals, it wasn’t evil right-ringers who were complicit in the horrors of Rotherham: it was golden-hearted liberals. Which political party gave rape-gangs the go-ahead year after year? Not the Conservatives or the British National Party, but feminist Labour, champions of the poor and vulnerable. Which newspaper dictated the multi-culti, rape-friendly politics of left-wing councillors and social workers in Rotherham? Not the Daily Mail or the Times, but the feminist Guardian, that staunch opponent of sex-crimes and patriarchal oppression. And you don’t have to take my word about the Guardian’s role in more than a decade of rapes, beatings and psychological torture:

Labour MPs: Left ignored sex abuse

A culture of Left-wing political correctness led politicians and officials to ignore the plight of young girls who were being sexually abused by Asian men, Labour figures have warned. Ann Cryer, an MP from 1997 until 2010, told The Sunday Telegraph how she had feared being called “racist” when, in 2002, she exposed a sex-abuse scandal involving Pakistani men in her constituency of Keighley, West Yorkshire. A “politically correct Left just saw it as racism”, she said.

At the same time, Simon Danczuk, the Labour MP for Rochdale, revealed that even now some of his colleagues disapproved of his efforts to uncover child abuse, because some were “obsessing about multiculturalism”. It follows the exposure last week of the scale of child sexual abuse in Rotherham. An inquiry estimated that at least 1,400 girls as young as 11 were assaulted and raped by gangs of Asian men over a period of 16 years. Some had guns pointed at them or were doused in petrol and threatened with being set alight. Mrs Cryer recalled how there was a politically correct Left that saw her fight as racism. “At the time I was dealing with this, 2002-04, political correctness was playing a big part. The Guardian at that time hardly mentioned these things… because it was so politically correct.” (Labour MPs: Left ignored sex abuse, The Daily Telegraph, 30th Aug 2014)

Deluded though they still are about mass immigration, Ann Cryer and Simon Danczuk have qualities unknown to most liberals: courage, honesty and integrity. Those are certainly not words that can be applied to the disgraced MP Denis MacShane, a dedicated champion of “the Jewish community” who was jailed in December 2013 for expenses fraud. But MacShane too has pointed out which newspaper created the “culture of denial” where gang-rape could flourish:

Rotherham: Sorry isn’t good enough. When will Britain learn to protect its children?

… Denis MacShane, who was Labour MP for Rotherham at the time, also says he didn’t know. Can it be the case that he was blinkered to the plight of his desperate constituents: parents fighting to get the authorities to do something about the abuse happening to their daughters? Could the disconnect between him and the community he represented have been so great? Was he so far removed from the business of the council that he didn’t know about the presentations to councillors on child sexual exploitation as long ago as 2004? His plea that his “liberal leftie” Guardian-reading tendencies prevented him from digging deeper for fear of upsetting cultural sensitivities smacks of a post-hoc justification of his abject failure to do anything: an excuse hardly befitting a parliamentarian of 18 years. If he was so unable or unwilling to exercise proper scrutiny and inquiry in his constituency (that being his job, after all) then he should have resigned long before he was forced to – in 2012 – when he was charged, and later convicted, of fraud while serving as an MP. Politics failed the young children of Rotherham too. (Rotherham: Sorry isn’t good enough. When will Britain learn to protect its children?, The Guardian, 31st August 2014)

Yes, that Guardian editorial has a long list of guilty parties: “the police, social services and the state failed the children; so, too, did local councillors.” Conspicuous by their absence are some folk much closer to home: editors and journalists at the Guardian (and its Sunday version the Observer). The Guardian cares so deeply about victims and the vulnerable that its website has special sections devoted to women, children, child protection, rape and domestic violence. But it was the right-wing Times “whose estimable reporting sparked the inquiry” into what was happening in Rotherham. It seems that pious posturing isn’t enough to protect the vulnerable. But the Guardian isn’t going to break the habit of a lifetime just yet:

The Guardian view on the Rotherham child abuse scandal: no excuse. Nothing should stand in the way of protecting the vulnerable. Those who fail should take responsibility

Shaun Wright, Labour’s South Yorkshire police and crime commissioner, who was Rotherham’s cabinet member for children and young people’s services from 2005 until 2010, is refusing to resign. He apologises unreservedly for the grotesque abuse that 1,400 children or more may have endured on his watch, but he says the scale of the abuse has come as a surprise to him. … His lack of leadership, his reluctance to ask difficult questions or to intervene proactively, allowed the exploitation itemised in Professor Alexis Jay’s grim report on Tuesday to grow from what an earlier investigator called gang abuse for personal gratification into “financial and career opportunities” for young, mainly Asian, men. His failure to take responsibility now, in the face of the evidence, suggests a dangerous reluctance to address what went so damagingly wrong for so many vulnerable young women.

Rotherham is not alone in experiencing colossal institutional failure in child protection. Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence, and a pattern of abuse that has now resulted in convictions in towns from Torbay to Rochdale is very likely to be happening in other places not yet identified. … Then there was a misguided reluctance to consider whether there was an issue of race involved. Finally, they lacked any kind of institutional data-sharing that might have allowed police, schools, hospitals and social workers to understand what was happening.

The question of ethnicity is particularly contentious. Rotherham is a very white, poor, working-class town with a growing but still small – less than 10% – black and minority ethnic population of which less than a third is Muslim. In last May’s local elections, Ukip won most votes and became the official opposition on the council. A march by the English Defence League during the campaign drew 500 supporters. On Tuesday, one of the first on Twitter with a gloating tweet was Nick Griffin of the BNP. In that context it is understandable that the Labour council was sensitive to the reputation of its Muslim community. But it led to a terrible misjudgment: the subordination of the safeguarding of abused and exploited children – who were mainly, but not only, white – to the protection of the standing of one particular community. When the then Labour MP Ann Cryer, the anti-forced-marriage campaigner, began reporting accounts of young Pakistani-heritage men hanging about school gates in 2003, she was bitterly criticised. (The Guardian view on the Rotherham child abuse scandal: no excuse, The Guardian, 27th August 2014)

“Bitterly criticized” by whom? Guardian-readers, of course. NASA should get in touch with the writer of that editorial: there’s enough hot air and humbug there to send a six-man crew to Mars and back. Let’s review the sorry list of failure: “lack of leadership… reluctance to ask difficult questions or to intervene proactively … dangerous reluctance to address what went so damagingly wrong for so many vulnerable young women… colossal institutional failure in child protection… misguided reluctance to consider whether there was an issue of race involved… terrible misjudgment: the subordination of the safeguarding of abused and exploited children to the protection of the standing of one particular community…”

In short, what caused the horrors in Rotherham was the ideology of the Guardian, as absorbed and applied by its dedicated readers in local government and social services. That ideology postures about rape and male violence while actually promoting them. The Guardian supports mass immigration from violent and misogynistic Third World nations, then conceals the consequences. It demonizes anyone who speaks the truth about the numerous pathologies imported by Muslims and other non-Whites. The Times wasn’t first with the news about Muslim rape-gangs in northern England: it was Nick Griffin, then the leader of the British National Party. And the Guardian wanted Griffin to go to jail for what he said.

If there are people who should be put on trial and imprisoned or expelled from Britain for promoting crime on a massive scale, it isn’t anyone in the British National Party and other nationalist organizations. No, it’s the politicians and journalists who have directly assisted a war of violence and rape waged by non-Whites against the White British. Here are a few of the guilty men and women:

  • Friend of Rape #1: Keith Vaz

Keith Vaz is the greasy and sleazy Labour MP who chairs the Commons Home Affairs Committee. He is now set to grill Shaun Wright, the police and crime commissioner excoriated by the Guardian for his failures in Rotherham. But Vaz himself concealed the truth about Muslim sex-crimes and helped them to continue:

Keith Vaz says child sex ring case ‘not race issue’

Leading MP Keith Vaz has insisted the case of an Asian paedophile gang that exploited dozens of vulnerable white teenagers is not a “race issue”. Mr Vaz, chairman of the Commons home affairs committee, said the “appalling” offences of the kind carried out by the gang needed to be looked into but it was important not to “stigmatise a whole community”.

He made the remarks after nine men from Rochdale were convicted for their role in a child sex ring. Police and social workers have been accused of failing to investigate the gang for fear of being perceived as racist, allowing them to prey on up to 50 young white girls.

Mr Vaz told [the BBC radio programme] Today the offences committed by the gang were “absolutely appalling crimes”. But he added: “Right at the start of this trial the BNP were outside demonstrating saying that this was a race issue. I do not believe it is a race issue.” He said his view was backed by the police and children’s experts. (Keith Vaz says child sex ring case ‘not race issue’, The Telegraph, 9th May 2012)

  • Friend of Rape #2: Sue Berelowitz

Vaz referred to “children’s experts.” Here is the most influential of them all:

Sex gangs report ‘will play down threat of Pakistani men targeting white girls’

An official inquiry into child sex gangs will fail to highlight the targeting of white girls by Pakistani men. Instead the year-long Government-backed investigation will say that child sex abuse is a problem caused by men of all backgrounds in towns and cities across the country. The findings of the inquiry by Sue Berelowitz, the Deputy Children’s Commissioner for England, are likely to anger ministers and provoke disbelief among those who have observed and investigated cases of abuse of teenage girls in towns in Lancashire and Yorkshire. …

Education Secretary Michael Gove said in May that Miss Berelowitz should not let her inquiries be swayed by questions of prejudice and should instead ‘ask tough questions about cultural background’. However her first report, to be published next week, will argue that the problem lies with men from all ethnic backgrounds. … A spokesman for Miss Berelowitz said there would be no comment on the report until it is published next week. But a senior political figure with long experience of trying to combat sex gangs said there is a specific problem with groups of young Pakistani men, and that Miss Berelowitz would be wrong to ignore it. (Sex gangs report ‘will play down threat of Pakistani men targeting white girls’, The Daily Mail, 16th November 2012)

  • Friends of Rape #3 and #4: Nazir Afzal and Javed Khan

These two dishonest and deceitful Muslims are, respectively, the “Crown Prosecution Service’s lead on child sexual abuse” and the Chief Executive of the Child Welfare charity Barnardo’s. The blogger Irish Savant reacts to them like this:

How the hell have what are arguably the two most important positions for preventing child abuse been awarded to members of the ethno-religious ‘community’ that specialises in this very crime? It goes without saying that there were many native British applicants for these posts. But in each case they appointed those from a community notorious for its treatment of and attitude to child sex abuse as well as a byword for corruption, extremism, filth and incompetence. (Monkeys and bananas, Irish Savant, 5th September 2014)

  • Friend of Rape #5: Jonathan Freedland

When this Jewish journalist at the Guardian learned about White girls in Rotherham being raped and threatened with incineration, his thoughts naturally flew to another group who have suffered appallingly: some Jews who had eggs thrown at them in 2006:

Rotherham inquiry: the ‘PC gone mad’ defence is itself a form of racism

This week political correctness was blamed for a vicious and persistent series of crimes: the organised rape and sexual exploitation of 1,400 children, most of them girls, in Rotherham. The Conservative MEP Daniel Hannan – said to be the intellectual guru to Ukip’s Douglas Carswell – argued that “these children were victims of ‘anti-racism’”. In this he echoed much of the press commentary, seizing on a finding of the Jay inquiry that those who should have protected Rotherham’s young from predators of Pakistani heritage were instead cowed by fear of being branded racist. …

How much easier for police or council officials who had neglected their duty to blame the terrifying commissars of political correctness rather than admit they messed up. If that strikes me as plausible, it’s partly down to personal experience. Several years ago I witnessed an incident in the East End of London when an outdoor memorial service was disrupted by a handful of Asian men, who pelted the mainly elderly mourners present with vegetables and eggs. The police were called but insisted they could do nothing. One officer told those who’d been hit he’d like to go after the offenders but he couldn’t: “It’s the Human Rights Act.”

That sounds laughable now, so obviously an excuse for inaction. But I’d go further. In a subtle way, such a claim – and indeed similar invocations of political correctness – represent a kind of racism. For what is being implied when a council or police force say they cannot stop a ring of men raping children? … For what low opinion must you have of those of Pakistani heritage to think that they, or Muslims more widely, would be offended by the prospect of violent paedophiles facing justice for their crimes? Posing as cultural sensitivity, such a concern betrays contempt: by presuming they would stand by the abusers and torturers in their midst it damns an entire community for the vile behaviour of a few. (Rotherham inquiry: the ‘PC gone mad’ defence is itself a form of racism, The Guardian, 29th August 2014)

So Freedland piously believes that the Muslim “community” doesn’t support “abusers and torturers.” The Labour MP Simon Danczuk has a  different story:

I’ve also had [Muslim] family members come to my [parliamentary] surgery asking me to make representations on behalf of brothers who have been found guilty of child sex abuse. When I refuse, I frequently receive a tirade of abuse. “These girls are prostitutes,” one man shouted at me, and warned that I would pay a heavy price for not supporting him. He’d get thousands of people not to vote for me. (Rotherham is not an isolated incident, The Daily Telegraph, 31st August 2014)

A year ago, I think that Danczuk would have been howled out of politics for speaking the truth like that. But he’s said even more:

Rotherham: politics ‘imported from Pakistan’ fuelled sex abuse cover-up – MP

An unhealthy brand of politics “imported” from Pakistan is partly to blame for the cover-up of mass child abuse in Rotherham and other British cities, a campaigning MP has claimed. Simon Danczuk, who helped expose a pattern of grooming of white teenage girls by men from a Pakistani background in Rochdale, where he is the Labour MP, said a culture of intimidation and closing of ranks within parts of the Asian community had mired politics in towns and cities across northern England for years.

Mr Danczuk said the elements of Pakistani political culture itself were partly to blame for the cover-up. “There are cultural issues around the way politics are done in the Asian community which have to change,” he said. He said he had personally come under pressure from Asian councillors and members of the community for speaking out as well as being warned by prominent figures in his party.

He pointed to the way in which two Muslim councillors in Rochdale had provided character references for one of the perpetrators of the Rochdale abuse. “Politics are done differently in Pakistan, it is a cultural difference we have imported some of that into some of these northern towns and cities and I think we have to face up to the fact that we can’t carry on doing politics like that.

“It is not healthy and the direct consequence is that we end up having to tackle issues like has been faced in Rotherham.” He described it as “a looking after your own” within the Asian community which other politicians had accepted. “Pressure was applied, that’s what will have happened to Denis MacShane and he went along with it,” he said, referring to comments last week from the disgraced former MP for Rotherham who said he had shied away from the issue because he was a “Guardian reading liberal leftie”. (Rotherham: politics ‘imported from Pakistan’ fuelled sex abuse cover-up – MP, The Sunday Telegraph, 31st August 2014)

  • Friend of Rape #6: Hugh Muir

Hugh Muir is one of the Guardian’s prized Black journalists. When reality contradicts his ideology, he does the right thing and denies reality:

Blaming the Rotherham abuse scandal on political correctness is ludicrous

The news from Rotherham becomes more horrific. Up to 1,400 children exploited and abused. And today we learn via an audit by Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary that officers from South Yorkshire police – to whom many victims turned – were previously criticised by the police inspectorate for spending “a great deal of time trying to disprove victims’ allegations”. Little wonder so many victims felt they had to fend for themselves. …

But can it really be true – as the tabloids and the right robustly claim – that a significant contributor truly was political correctness; the fear of officials that by intervening appropriately in cases where the suspects were Pakistani Muslims, they themselves would be castigated as racist? If it is, it is outrageous. It is also ludicrous. …

If a backlash was feared, where would it have come from? There is no minority lobby for criminals and paedophiles. So long as communities knew the issue was one of law enforcement rather than an assault on those communities themselves, they would have supported tough action by the authorities. … In no other sphere does PC and its terrors prevent the authorities taking action against minorities. We’re over-represented in courts and prisons at one end of the social scale, overdisciplined and marginalised in the professions at the other. If it is true that political correctness prevented the authorities from using their powers against minorities for fear of giving offence, that’s a scandal. It would also be a first. (Blaming the Rotherham abuse scandal on political correctness is ludicrous, The Guardian, )

first? Hugh Muir doesn’t appear to read his own newspaper, which said this in February 2014: “Female genital mutilation (FGM) has been a crime in the UK since 1985. An estimated 65,000 girls aged 13 and under are at risk of mutilation. So why has there been a grand total of zero prosecutions?” (see here).

He may also have missed this, published in the Guardian in September: “The Home Office researcher …  also said she had been accused of being insensitive when she told one official that most of the perpetrators were from Rotherham’s Pakistani community. A female colleague talked to her about the incident. ‘She said you must never refer to that again – you must never refer to Asian men. And her other response was to book me on a two-day ethnicity and diversity course to raise my awareness of ethnic issues.’” (see here).

And if Muir thinks there is “no minority lobby for criminals and paedophiles,” he needs to read what the Labour MP Simon Danczuk says about the “abuse” he receives from Muslims when he declines to make “representations on behalf of brothers who have been found guilty of child sex abuse” (see here and above).

  • Friend of Rape #7: Libby Brooks

While vibrant rape-gangs were hard at work in Rotherham, Oxford, Telford and many other British cities, Libby Brooks was hard at work too, denying reality and helping the crimes to continue:

Grooming and our ignoble tradition of racialising crime: Dubious claims about Muslim men grooming white girls hide legitimate worries about a system that fails victims of abuse

… the Times has marshalled evidence suggesting that these organised crimes are carried out almost exclusively by gangs of Pakistani Muslim origin who target white youngsters; and it quotes both police and agency sources who refer to a “conspiracy of silence” around the open investigation of such cases, amid fears of being branded racist or inflaming ethnic tensions in already precarious local environments. …

There is an ignoble tradition of racialising criminality in this country, in particular sexual offences, from the moral panic about West Indian pimps in the 1960s to the statistically dubious coverage of African-Caribbean gang rape in the 90s [she should have said “statistically damning”]. … The efforts of the Times to stand up this investigation are certainly considerable: selectively quoting or misquoting some groups, and inventing a category of “on-street grooming” that does not exist in law and was not recognised by any of the agencies I spoke to. It is also worth asking how responsible it is to provide ammunition to the violent racist extremists already active in these areas on such flawed evidence. (Grooming and our ignoble tradition of racialising crime, The Guardian, 7th January 2011)

  • Friend of Rape #8: Liz Fekete

Last but not least, we have the Jewish anti-fascist Liz Fekete, who has worked for decades to conceal the truth about vibrant crime and ensure that it continues. She wrote this in 2012:

Given the current climate, in which the far Right accuses the anti-racist lobby of imposing a conspiracy of silence about Muslim involvement in ‘on-street grooming’, I was quite surprised to see you similarly accuse the ‘left’ and anti-racists of being ‘too quick to try and silence any discussion’ and of turning a blind eye to the fact that the bulk of perpetrators of what you describe as ‘on-street grooming’ come from the British-Pakistani community. But what I really take issue with is your uncritical, and occasionally slanted, take on Ministry of Justice crime statistics.

There is, as you will know, a long history of racialising sex crimes in this country – Jews being associated with paedophilia in the 1930s, West Indians with pimping in the 1950s and now the focus has shifted to Muslim ‘groomers’ [on the contrary, I suggest that all these “racialisations” are accurate]. And statistics (just like attitude surveys) are not scientific and neutral but can be manipulated to suit an argument. … It recalled for me the time in the 1980s when the media and the fascists were creating the spectre of the ‘black mugger’ and the Metropolitan police added to the moral panic by isolating ‘assault or threat of violence upon a person, especially with intent to rob’ from all street crime and then providing the ethnicity of the perpetrators. Then, young African-Caribbean men were being accused of racially-motivated attacks on ‘little white old ladies’ in much the same way as Muslims as a whole are accused of anti-white sex crimes. (Grooming: an open letter to Nick Lowles, The Institute of Race Relations, 15th November 2012)

The names listed above are the guilty Guardianistas: the traitors, liars and promoters of non-White murder, rape and corruption. But I think their day is ending. Those comments by Simon Danczuk about Pakistani corruption would have ended his career in the recent past. Not now. A Tory MP has publicly affirmed his belief that Enoch Powell was right to say mass immigration would end in disaster. That too would have been a career-killer in the recent past. Not now.

Instead, liberals are on the defensive, frantically lying and blowing smoke as they try to conceal the moral bankruptcy of their ideology and causes. There are more scandals like Rotherham to come and each new revelation will further expose liberals for what they are: promoters of hate and chaos, enemies of women and children, not friends and protectors. The Rotherham scandal has set a stake on the heart of the liberal vampire. Now history will begin to hammer it home.
