The UK's Guardian reported Wednesday that "sexual exploitation of vulnerable children has become the social norm in some parts of Greater Manchester," and the denial and obfuscation about what is really causing this problem is thicker than ever.
In the very same sentence in which it broke this terrible news, the Guardian stated that this phenomenon is "fuelled by explicit music videos and quasi-pornographic selfies, an MP has warned." The MP in question, former social worker Ann Coffey, has issued a report on the sexual exploitation of children in Britain that she said would "make painful reading for those who hoped that Rochdale was an isolated case."
It was in Rochdale that a group of Muslims were involved in a large-scale sex trafficking ring involving young non-Muslim girls. Coffey is right: there is already abundant evidence that it was not an isolated case, as 1,400 British non-Muslim children were gang-raped and brutalized by Muslims in the British city of Rotherham alone, and there are numerous other documented cases in Britain of Muslim sex trafficking and rape gangs, of which the victims were non-Muslim girls.
