For decades UK politicians, police and child protection networks, from local to national, deliberately turned a blind eye to organized child-sex grooming gangs across Britain. While only Rotherham was smeared in the international media, many other communities experienced the terror of these grooming gangs. The resultant suppression of the rape, torture and pimping of barely pubescent schoolgirls rightly offends decent people everywhere.
A shocked world read the details of Rotherham: the overwhelming prevalence of these grooming gangs, the consistent disparity in the backgrounds between perpetrators and victims, the physical and emotional brutality shown these exploited children. But above and beyond what the gangs did to these girls, was the systematic failure of the authorities to lift a finger to help these terrorized kids. The question echoing around the world is why.
In Easy Meat Peter McLoughlin digs into what drove the authorities to deliberately abandon any girl caught in the web of these child-sex grooming gangs. To understand why failure was heaped on failure, it's necessary to understand the glaring demographic disparity between these gangs and their victims. The common denominator is that these gangs overwhelmingly follow one specific religious ideology, Islamic, while the vast majority of their victims do not. That difference made the authorities unwilling to intervene, nor even acknowledge, this hereto unseen phenomenon of child-sex grooming gangs, frequently multi-generational and related by blood and marriage, systematically exploiting young girls as sexual slaves with both the authorities and their community's knowledge.
For decades, multiculturalism has been the prevailing dogma in Britain, as it has in NA and Europe. Political correctness, the term given the verbal gymnastics required lest someone be offended by a slip of the tongue, has thrown a blanket of silence over any criticism of bad behaviour displayed by any specific group identified by race, religion, gender, sexual orientation or ethnic origin. Honest and truthful discussion is stifled with words like racist, bigot, misogynist, homophobe...the list is endless. In the case with the grooming gangs, anyone who pointed out the consistency in the religious make-up of the grooming gangs was immediately shouted down with a charge of racism, a career crippling epithet that brought ostracism and even disciplinary action that might include job loss.
Fear was the motivating factor that made the authorities condemn tens of thousands of young girls to rape and torture at the hands of these gangs in favour of protecting their careers.
There's much more to be learned about who enabled these child-rape gangs and why. I concur with McLoughlin recommendation that only a full-scale Public Inquiry can identify and hold accountable the guilty parties. To be fair, there were many good people who tried to make the problem known but were shut down. I hope they write of their experiences to save Britain's children and name names. It's the only way to eradicate this disgusting social disease of political correctness that will be the ruination of our western democratic societies unless we check it. To save democracy we must move into an arena where speaking truth is not punished and the most vulnerable, our children, receive the protection they deserve.
