Thank goodness it could never happen here.
Tracking down the victims of Rotherham required a bit of elementary detective work on my part, but it’s not that difficult. What struck me, as my time in town proceeded, was how few members of the British media had been sufficiently interested to make the effort: The young ladies were unstoppably garrulous in part because, with a few honorable exceptions, so few of their countrymen have ever sought them out to hear their stories. To damn with the faintest of praise, the victims had a more favorable view of Ms Champion than they did of the rest of officialdom – council, police, social workers, etc – who colluded with the Muslim gangs in covering up the town-wide “grooming” and blaming it on the girls. That parody Tweet above about the “need to shut their mouths. For the good of diversity” is, in fact, the unspoken belief of almost everyone who matters in Britain. Which is one reason why Ms Shah fell for it. And also why, as I explained in my report, the sexual exploitation of children is still going on in Rotherham. In broad daylight.
No matter. Ms Shah is the future of the Labour Party, and Ms Champion, a telegenic modern woman and formerly a rising Labour star, has been taught a hard lesson in the hierarchy of identity politics. Amid all this Mohammedan mood music – Barcelona, Turku, Brussels, Buckingham Palace, Rotherham – you’ll be glad to hear a real news story occasionally breaks through. Brendan O’Neill writes in The Spectator of a thwarted airline passenger called Mohammad Khan:
I wonder how Mohammad Khan is getting on in his legal action against Virgin Atlantic. Mo — a Muslim, the clue’s in the name — was waiting to board a flight when he started ‘harmlessly’ talking about 9/11. There is no reason to believe he has any connections with extremists, but he was kicked off the flight because of security concerns and had to fly out of the UK with another airline. Although he was later offered a refund, he is now suing, claiming he was ‘racially and religiously profiled’ by the Virgin staff. ‘I know this wouldn’t have happened if I’d been a white man in his sixties,’ Mo complained. No, probably not. But if the world were comprised entirely of white men in their sixties, then 9/11 might not have happened. The world might also be a nicer place to live, although there might be too many bridge tournaments for my own taste.
It’s entirely reasonable to be less suspicious of a white man in his sixties than a younger man called Mohammad burbling about 9/11. Indeed, it’s so reasonable that it’s now verboten. In the comments section below another Spectator column, readers speculate on what it will take for anything to change. But all the scenarios have already happened: mass murder at pop concerts, national holidays, Christmas markets; the industrial-scale sex slavery of young girls in Rotherham; the deliberate targeting for death of young girls in Manchester…
And still the most obvious mitigation of future slaughter – an end to mass Muslim immigration – cannot even be raised in public by Europe’s establishment.
Yeah, well, don’t look now, but it can’t be raised here either. Not as long as there’s even one stupid “liberal” judge still sitting who’s willing to use completely spurious and contra-Constitutional means to stymie implementation of it, and a rabid, violent PC mob to rise up and club people in “mostly peaceful…mostly” protest over the very idea, it can’t. The upshot?
One final comment on my trip to Rotherham:
I am really enjoying my 1st edition of The Clubbable Steyn. That Rotherham story shows us pure evil exists!
No, sir. It shows us how easily a once civilized people get used to pure evil – at first declining to notice it, to let it catch your eye, and then accommodating it and incubating it. You’ll be surprised how quickly such an attitude becomes universally understood, so that the few who insist on noticing, on not accommodating it become the real problem. See no evil, hear no cries of the victims, speak no forbidden thought of the motivations behind today’s terror attack, and tomorrow’s, and the day after…
So female shoppers in Finland get stabbed by murderous Muslims, and Buckingham Palace is in lockdown because of a man from Luton. Lie back and think of a lost England – and a lost Europe.
And, eventually, a lost West. In fact, judging from my earlier post, the only thing that might frighten Western dimwits into taking some sort of action at this late date would be if the jihadis started packing doorbells instead of machetes, guns, clubs, etc.
