If you don’t understand hate crime – read this.


muslims go home

This post appeared on my blog last night. It expresses an opinion and my initial reaction was to trash it, as it is not an opinion that I share, indeed it is one I find repulsive.

But my reaction was quite wrong. The anonymous poster is entitled to his views and to have them heard. It is partly because views like this have not been listened to , that the anger and frustration has built up.

I live in a world where issues of the kind mentioned here, do not touch my daily life, so it is easy for me to ignore them- or trash them and pretend they do not exist.

Read this please and draw your own conclusions. Without listening , understanding and accepting what is said, we cannot make sense of  Jo Cox’s death and of the rise in hate crime.

Jo Cox won’t be missed,

Tribute after tribute bore witness to Jo Cox’s uniqueness, in reality, nothing could have been further from the truth.

In fact omen like Jo Cox are ten a penny across the West these days — bland, compliant functionaries who have been marinated in political correctness and are happy to regurgitate the platitudes and attitudes of their political masters.

She was that toxic combination of self-rightousness and entitlement which believed itself possessed of a special moral insight into the moral shortcomings of their own people. Never slow to parade her compassion, she was also calculating enough to help more dubious causes, as when she lent her name to a government minister who was lobbying for Britain to begin bombing in Syria. Bombing and babies; it was all business for Jo Cox.

Jo Cox wanted to make the world a better place and it was a cause for which she was willing to travel halfway across the globe. Whether consoling rape victims in Darfur or bombed out villagers in Afghanistan, it seemed the jet-setting international aid worker was rarely far from the action.

Lately it had been the struggle of Syrian war refugees to get to the West that touched her heart, and their plight was a subject she returned to again and again after becoming a Member of Parliament. It seemed there was no victims anywhere she could not empathise with.

Except, perhaps, with one striking omission.

And that would be the White child rape victims of Muslim grooming gangs in her own back yard. For her West Yorkshire constituency is near the epicentre of the Muslim child rape epidemic that has been sweeping the Labour heartlands of northern England, largely ignored or covered up by social services workers, police and politicians.

For it is a striking omission that of all the subjects she enjoyed sounding off on, this world-famous crisis affecting the poorest Whites on her doorstep was not one of them. One cannot help wonder if this shrewd silence was connected to the fact that her lavishly paid MPs job in the constituency of Batley and Spen largely depended on the support of the local Muslim community.

Co-incidentally, just as Jo Cox was shot and stabbed to death outside her constituency office in Birstall last Thursday, sentencing was about to take place at Leeds Crown Court after a long trial involving a horrific case of Muslim child exploitation.

The court heard that in Halifax, eleven miles from Cox’s constituency, a vulnerable underage girl had been left to fend for herself at the age of 13 after her mother died. This child ended up being preyed on by 100 Muslim males who plied her with alcohol and drugs. The girl — nominally in council care — was then passed from house to house and from town to town as far away as Manchester and London. The girl described being filmed by Muslims on a mobile phone while being orally raped. She contracted an STD. Some of the rapists were identified from CCTV which had been seized from the hotels she could remember, while others were caught because of DNA from stains on her clothing. The police said afterwords that the girl, one of two victims, had shown “immense courage and bravery in reporting these matters to the police and providing evidence.”

At the Leeds trial, only fifteen of the men were convicted. Originally over a hundred were arrested and doubtless dozens of culprits walked free. It was a lurid and horrific story but such hearings are so common these days, they have become wearily familiar.

Nevertheless you would think this would be a issue that would enrage a feminist-minded, morally crusading MP. But no, instead of fighting to defend the White girl victims of Muslim rape gangs, female Labour MPs have preferred to defend the Muslim community and deflect any criticism. Or, like Jo Cox, they have chosen to ignore it completely. In her maiden speech, Jo Cox said that her community had been “deeply enhanced by immigration”. Yes well.

    Hi Henry
    You have made a huge mistake in writing, “Read this please and draw your own conclusions. Without listening , understanding and accepting what is said, we cannot make sense of LEAVE – of Jo Cox’s death and of the rise in hate crime.”

    You are implying that the 17 million people who voted LEAVE are racists. This is complete and nasty rubbish. I suggest that you should retract that opinion. It is not racist to view the EU as a failing, undemocratic and corrupt institution.

      I am sorry but when you get the right wing press of UK demonising every single immigrant on a daily basis it is going to have a affect on peoples perceptions, they did the same thing to the unemployed. The person who wrote the above bile has chosen to hide behind the cloak of anonymity, you have to ask the question why?

      Your assertion that the “EU as a failing, undemocratic and corrupt institution”, and you can back this statement up with concrete proof or will you be recycling the lies as peddled by Murdoch and Co?

      • DaveC says:

        The person who wrote the above “bile” might be a very upset and angry member of the absused person’s family.
        Someone who felt that anonymity was required to respect their family’s privacy.

        But I suppose you know for a fact that this person is just another racist bigot, and given your limited selection of labels, that is the one they are given?

        As for the failing EU and concrete proof?

        PIIGS. Italy’s banks have just had the biggest bailout in history. Spain isn’t far behind. I’m assuming you didn’t see what happened in Greece over the last few years?

        Undemocratic: Can you directly vote for one of the European Council members, Council of the European Union, or European Commission?
        Almost all the legislation comes from these sources, and can only be voted on by elected representatives in the European Parliament.
        Your representation within the European Parliament is at least 5 times less than it is within the UK per voter.

        Corrupt institution: This is more difficult but I assume that no big businesses lobby for protectionist policies via the EU?
        The TTIP isn’t being discussed behind closed doors? Or do they have something to hide?
        The Canadian CETA trade deal didn’t seem to popular, but some suggest that Italy acted with questionable ethics:
        That last one is quite interesting given that almost half a trillion USD was just used to bail out perpetually failing Italian banks just the other day.

        That may not be concrete proof but the EU isn’t exactly a shining example of humanity at it’s best.

        Murdoch and Co? Does anyone read the mainstream news any more?

        I thought everyone read investigative blogs and analysis sites, like the one Henry so genorously provides that give true expert insight into issues.

    It’s great to see you expand into general social topics Henry, but as you’ve found you can quickly end up in ‘political correctness’ hot water!

    Which is a good and bad thing.

    I’ve been surprised how many people are being offensive for generalising leave voters with a broad brush, inferring they’re bigots and racists, while falling for being bigoted and generalising based on stereotypes themselves!

    It’s good because hopefully it’s making even the supposed lefty liberals realise they not quite as lefty or liberal as they thought. They too have fallen for judging based on misconceptions and stereotypes.

    It’s bad because it really shouldn’t have come to this. How can grown adults end up acting like this? Political correctness has a lot to answer for because it’s made us scared and incapable of reasoned debate.

    As for Jo Cox, as far as I can gather we won’t know the official course of events that led to her death for many months.

    To suggest that to understand the anonymous posters perspective allows you to make sense of Jo Cox’s death could be a million miles from reality.
    It may have absolutely nothing to do with her death, or it may have everything to do with her death.

    To even make the suggestion could be flying quite close to inciting racial hatred… as that connection has clearly been made.
