The religion of peace strikes again

by Brad Nelson   9/9/14

Dennis Prager has an excellent article about the 1400 girls in England who were raped by the “religion of peace.” A few highlights for you:

Why was nothing done for 16 years?

Police incompetence was a factor, but not the primary reason.
The primary reason was political correctness. It turns out that the perpetrators were all, or nearly all, of “Pakistani heritage” and the girls were all, or nearly all, white.

And Dennis gives a nice definition to the dark practice of “diversity”

Yet they [the Left] are oblivious to the fact that they are the very ones who created the moral monsters known as political correctness, multiculturalism, and “diversity” — the doctrines that forbid judging non-whites, Muslims, and others by the same moral standards by which whites and Christians are judged.

Here’s a good quote:

Lies are to political correctness, multiculturalism, and “diversity” what water is to fish.

What can one say? The realities are very uncomfortable. Unless England deports (whether a citizen or otherwise) every Muslim in their presence, they are doomed. I’m not even saying the I support such a move. But it’s either that or they are doomed.

One would think, given the Left’s claim to feminism, that for 16 years it would have been the loudest voice calling for the apprehension and punishment of the girls’ rapists. But, as psychiatrist and commentator Theodore Dalrymple noted in a 2004 column, “Where two pieties — feminism and multiculturalism — come into conflict, the only way of preserving both is an indecent silence.”

One thing to remember as you engage in this battle with the Left and the “useful idiots” (including libertarians) who think they are the very height of compassion by being “tolerant”: They enable this stuff. They are not the good. They don’t care about the good. All they care about is being carried along in the sea of whatever cultural current happens to be pulling them this way and that, especially currents that do not require them to think or to take tough stands and that, instead, flatter their sense of moral superiority.

About Brad Nelson

I like books, nature, politics, old movies, Ronald Reagan (you get sort of a three-fer with that one), and the founding ideals of this country. We are the Shining City on the Hill — or ought to be. However, our land has been poisoned by Utopian aspirations and feel-good bromides. Both have replaced wisdom and facts.

    That was an excellent article by Prager; I read it last night on Town Hall. One thing to note is that apparently the Rotherham victims were mostly Roma (i.e., gypsies, and given the prejudice against them, that term is actually appropriate). Prejudice against gypsies is still acceptable (as long as you call them Roma, I suppose), and prejudice against Muslims or South Asians is unacceptable, so most of the authorities (police, social workers, politicians) took the path of least resistance — especially when the few who sounded the alarm were punished for their politically incorrect temerity.

      Such clarity of thought and writing. I don’t always agree with my Jewru, but I always give him that. (And when he is wrong about a subject, that clarity tends to waft away a bit, replaced by mild rationalizations — but that’s somewhat rare).

    It’s about ISIS rather than Rotherham, but this is a good place to mention that the Washington Post has an article by a Kurdish journalist giving the first-hand story of a Yazidi girl who was captured, handed over as an involuntary concubine to an ISIS leader, and escaped (with a friend). She eventually rejoined her family (except her brother, who had been murdered at the beginning, though she didn’t find out until her month-long ordeal was over). Hot Air has a link to the article.
