As Twitchy reported yesterday, more than 1,400 children were abused in the British town of Rotherham, with a 153-report noting that “the girl victims were white, and their abusers Pakistani.”
Forbes contributor Roger Scruton blamed political correctness for the lack of action, writing that “police forces lean over backwards to avoid the accusation of racism, while social workers will hesitate to intervene in any case in which they could be accused of discriminating against ethnic minorities. Matters are made worse by the rise of militant Islam, which has added to the old crime of racism the new crime of ‘Islamophobia’. No social worker today will risk being accused of this crime.”
A document reportedly from a home office researcher who exposed the abuse shows how she was given a diversity course after raising concerns.
Member of the European Parliament and author of “Inventing Freedom: How the English-Speaking Peoples Made the Modern World” Daniel Hannan tweeted the document as well with the Latin for “O times! O customs!”
