Here’s the latest news in the endless scandal I wrote about in Taki’s last year: Pakistani pimps sexually exploiting white English schoolgirls and the British Establishment’s ignoring to avoid helping anti-immigration parties like the BNP. Now there’s an official report on the cover-up in one North England town:
Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Exploitation in Rotherham (1997 – 2013)
Here are the headlines from the Daily Mail:
Revealed: How fear of being seen as racist stopped social workers saving up to 1,400 children from sexual exploitation at the hands of Asian men in just ONE TOWN
Report found 1,400 children abused between 1997 and 2013 in Rotherham
That’s not Rotterdam, the big port city in Netherlands, that’s Rotherham, South Yorkshire.
The figure is likely to be a conservative estimate of the true scale
Victims terrorised with guns and doused in petrol and threatened with fire
More than a third of the cases were already know to agencies
Author of the report condemned ‘blatant’ failings by council’s leadership
Action blocked by political correctness as staff ‘feared appearing racist’
Majority of victims described the perpetrators as ‘Asian’ men
Leader of Rotherham Council has stepped down with immediate effect
No council employees will receive disciplinary action, leaders state
The exact same story is covered in the New York Times, although arranged to less disturb the preconceptions of its readers. Generally, you can figure out what’s going on from an NYT article if you have strong reading comprehension skills. NYT reporters are mostly first-rate and they tend to care about interesting news. But the Who-Whom rules of Respectable Journalism require that articles about non-whites behaving badly and being allowed to get away with it due to political correctness must be presented in such a fashion that the average subscriber loses interest before getting to the good stuff.
Abuse Cases in British City Long Ignored, Report Says
1,400 Children in Rotherham, England, Were Sexually Abused, Report Says
By KATRIN BENNHOLD AUG. 26, 2014
LONDON — A report released on Tuesday on accusations of widespread sexual abuse in the northern England city of Rotherham found that about 1,400 minors — some as young as 11 years old — were beaten, raped and trafficked from 1997 to 2013 as the local authorities ignored a series of red flags.
Some children were doused in gasoline and threatened with being set on fire if they reported their abusers, the report said, and others were forced to watch rapes and threatened with the same fate. In more than a third of the cases, the victims appear to have been known to child protection agencies, but the police and local government officials failed to act.
Within hours of the report’s publication, the leader of the local government council resigned.
“Having considered the report, I believe it is only right that I, as leader, take responsibility on behalf of the council for the historic failings that are described so clearly in the report, and it is my intention to do so,” said Roger Stone, the leader of the Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council since 2003.
That was a particularly eye-glazing paragraph …
The vast majority of perpetrators have been identified as South Asian and most victims were young white girls, adding to the complexity of the case.
Yes, it’s all very complex …
Some officials appeared to believe that social workers pointing to a pattern of sexual exploitation were exaggerating, while others reportedly worried about being accused of racism if they spoke out. The report accused officials of ignoring “a politically inconvenient truth” in turning a blind eye to men of Pakistani heritage grooming vulnerable white girls for sex.
But it’s just “some officials,” right? No doubt white racist officials …
Finally, after all that hemming and hawing, the NYT reporter gets to actually report:
It was not until 2010 that the first case of child sexual exploitation in Rotherham, a South Yorkshire city of about 250,000 people, made it to court. Five men received long prison sentences for grooming three teenage girls for sex. It was one of several high-profile prosecutions over the past four years that revealed sexual exploitation in cities including Oxford, Rochdale and Derby.
The Times of London later published a series of articles claiming that the local authorities had been aware of several instances of sexual abuse that were not prosecuted. The Rotherham Council eventually commissioned an independent inquiry that led to Tuesday’s report.
Alexis Jay, the author of the report and a former chief inspector of social work, said that vulnerable girls as young as 11 and largely from disadvantaged backgrounds had been brutalized by groups of men.
“They were raped by multiple perpetrators, trafficked to other towns and cities in the north of England, abducted, beaten and intimidated,” she wrote.
The report described the failures of the political and police leadership as blatant. Even as social workers reported that the sexual exploitation of children was becoming a serious problem in Rotherham, senior managers in the local authority and South Yorkshire police ignored them. When victims came forward, Ms. Jay said, the police often regarded them “with contempt.”
Three earlier reports, published from 2002 to 2006, detailed the abuse, and according to Ms. Jay, “could not have been clearer in the description of the situation in Rotherham.” But the first one was “effectively suppressed” and the other two “ignored,” she said.
So, the last six paragraphs were pretty clear to anyone still paying close attention that yes, indeed, political correctness caused massive amounts of statutory rape. But to end the article, let’s go back to an ambiguous note about how “local Pakistanis leaders” would have been shocked to hear about such things:
Some officials were apparently ordered by their managers to withhold information on the ethnic origin of the abusers, the report said. As a result, no contact was made with local Pakistani leaders for help in identifying gangs that continued to assault and abduct teenagers.
So, when you stop and think about it, it’s really due to white prejudice against Pakistanis, which is the important crime.
I wrote last year in Taki’s:
British leaders repeatedly swept the Muslim statutory gang-rapist phenomenon under the rug for over a decade. Way back in 2001, Nick Griffin of the British National Party began to point out that Pakistani pimps in Britain were targeting white girls under 16.
It’s most useful to think of this practice not so much as pedophilia—a bizarre fetish—but as economically rational whoremastering.
Pakistani pimps focus on recruiting very young postpubescent English girls because they are so naïve.
As we’ve seen in recent years, Muslim male-chauvinist cultures that treat females like dirt tend to nurture males who have a knack for living off women’s earnings. Thus, Albanian pimps have come to dominate the European sex-slave trade. And the various Chechen layabouts who have been in the news in America since the Boston bombing have displayed a remarkable gift for getting attractive women to throw their lives away on them.
In contrast, women-respecting Swedes seldom make talented pimps.
In the many Pakistani grooming cases in England, Ali G types would convince silly little white girls that they were their boyfriends, provide them with drugs, then browbeat them into proving their love by having sex at a party with all the pimps’ Uncle Jamaals. …
It might seem insane that this kind of Bronze Age predatory pattern would work so well in a sophisticated country such as England, but that’s exactly why it worked: Noticing patterns is now derided as “stereotyping.”
