Political correctness is allowing Islamic terrorism to flourish and is fueling the growth of the extreme right-wing, police leaders were warned last night.
This ship has long sailed with regards to political correctness. Abhorrent abuses in Islamic states are now evident across the Western world, and are tolerated for fear of being called “Islamophobic” or racist.
Dame Louise Casey “carried out a two year review into integration in the UK,” and while her point about political correctness makes perfect sense, she sabotages her own efforts with some of her claims about “Islamophobia,” the “far right” and the “EDL.”
Speaking at a summit of police chiefs and crime commissioners, Dame Louise [said] it was time to have the difficult conversations about what was going on in some of the less integrated communities in places like Bradford, Birmingham, Oldham and the East End of London.
This conversation has been long overdue, as it was the police (along with social workers) who neglected their duties and turned a blind eye while tens of thousands — in fact up to a million — British girls were being abused by Muslim rape gangs. Dame Louise asserts that police were “not frightened to address ethnicity and religion when it comes to most crimes,” yet the facts about the sex abuse scandal against young defenseless girls reveals otherwise. The police and social workers were mortified at the mere thought of being called racist, which was the reason they covered up these heinous abuses.
Dame Louise also claims that “everybody saw how Rotherham sex scandal was milked by EDL to fuel Islamophobia.”
It was horrifying to witness authorities fail these young girls, yet Dame Louise casts the EDL as “Islamophobic” and fueling “Islamophobia” for calling attention to Muslim rape gang activity. Dame Louise is making the same mistake she is calling attention to. This “Islamophobia” labeling is a widespread problem throughout the West, with officials afraid of being called racist and intolerant. The “Islamophobia” charge demonizes those who seek to curb human rights abuses.
Although “far right” activity does exist, as does “far left” Antifa, the term “far right” is far too often slapped on anyone who decides to exercise his or her right to speak out against and protest abuses and the erosion of their countries’ freedoms by Islamic supremacists who are manipulating Western leaders and citizens.
Dame Louise, who is making efforts to deal with political correctness, would do well to understand that the word “Islamophobia” is a canard which fuels a utilitarian victimology narrative used by Islamic supremacists who propagate the word as a means to beat down critics of Islam. Those behind this initiative include the Organization of Islamic Cooperation.
A phobia is a medical term for an irrational fear. It is prudent to “fear” the damaging elements within Islam that are being fueled by a zealous religiosity, and that religiosity is being widely adhered to globally. Among other things, we see:
- Infidels are being sexually assaulted and abused, run over by vehicles, blown up; religious minorities are being massacred globally;
- Israel faces obliteration, were it not for its unceasing watchfulness;
- Many Muslim women risk the horrors of being beaten by husbands if they “misbehave,” as is sanctioned in the Quran; suffering FGM if they are part of a Muslim family which practices this barbaric procedure; forced marriage; becoming a child bride; being honor-killed; and the like.
It is prudent to be concerned when Western leaders are being lenient about such practices for the sake of the same political correctness that Dame Louise is attempting to address, and have flung the doors of their countries so wide open that the threatened Islamic State infiltration of the refugee stream has happened, and it was easy.
So while Dame Louise is asserting that “our desire to embrace diversity was creating division and also letting down some of the most vulnerable members of society,” she is contributing to that same political correctness she condemns.
Despite Dame Louise’s misguided views about “Islamophobia” and loosely applied “far right” label, she was candid in her observations about some of the Muslim cultural practices she observed that were in violation of democratic values. She was correct in stating that “people often came together to oppose far right marches but failed to show the same unity when it came to addressing inequalities in the communities they were wanting to protect.”
An honest conversation is the first step to protecting Western citizens from jihad and harmful cultural practices, and that conversation should also address any genuine rise of anti-Muslim bigotry. It is also worthwhile to note that it is not Muslims who suffer the most hate. In the US and Canada, blacks and Jews continue to be the groups that are most often targeted in hate crimes, and only because of their race, not their ideology. All ideologies should be fully and openly scrutinized, despite Islamic supremacist pressure and political correctness.
“Political correctness is allowing Islamic terrorism to flourish, Government tsar warns”, by Martin Evans, Telegraph, November 2, 2017:
Political correctness is allowing Islamic terrorism to flourish and is fuelling the growth of the extreme right-wing, police leaders were warned last night.
Dame Louise Casey, who carried out a two year review into integration in the UK, said our desire to embrace diversity was creating division and also letting down some of the most vulnerable members of society.
Speaking at a summit of police chiefs and crime commissioners, Dame Louise, it was time to have the difficult conversations about what was going on in some of the less integrated communities in places like Bradford, Birmingham, Oldham and the East End of London.
She said while the police were not frightened to address factors such as ethnicity and religion when it came to most crimes, there was a reluctance to have similar conversations around extremism.
Dame Louise said: “Islamic extremists are often terrorists and pose the most threat, it is very difficult for us to have that conversation and to deny that seems to make it worse.”
But she went on: “The far right milk it every time we are overtly politically correct and are unable to deal with Islamic extremism…Everybody saw how Rotherham sex scandal was milked by EDL to fuel Islamophobia.”
She said people often came together to oppose far right marches but failed to show the same unity when it came to addressing inequalities in the communities they were wanting to protect.
She told police chiefs: “I would like to see the same team building when we know we have Islamic extremists and people who think that wearing short skirts on a Friday night is so wrong and westernised.
“It legitimises very harmful views about young women growing up in this country. And we don’t seem to be able to muster it.
“There are good reasons we don’t like people being victimised but we have to have those difficult conversations.”
During her integration review, Dame Louise spent time in some of the country’s least integrated communities and said she had been dismayed by some of the attitudes she found.
She said: “I was very upset and saddened by the level of unequal treatment and I was struck by the lives, because of culture, we think it is acceptable for women to live in Bradford, Birmingham and the east end of London.”
She explained that she had found examples of teenage girls being let out of school for prayers on a Friday and then not allowed to leave the house again until Monday.
“I don’t think girls should be growing up in this country where they don’t leave their houses over the weekend,” she said.
“We are helping the extreme right wing if we do not take these issues on. They are nasty, horrible racist people who have no place in our society but their numbers are growing.
“I also think in our desire to embrace diversity we creating division.”…..
