One of the big news stories in Britain last year was the uncovering of what that country's media insist on calling "Asian sex gangs." Simply put, groups of "Asian" men turn large numbers of "white" girls into their sex toys, "grooming" them for exploitation and then passing them around to one another. For those unfamiliar with the standard euphemisms of the British press – left-wing and right-wing, highbrow and lowbrow alike – "Asian" and "white" are codes for "Muslim" and "non-Muslim," respectively. The reason these men can target non-Muslim girls so remorselessly is simple: they know that in their religion's eyes female infidels are already prostitutes, whose failure to wear veils renders them undeserving of respect and responsible for any sexual act to which they might be unwillingly subjected.
Although it is becoming clear that such "sex gangs" are in operation in a number of places, the focus has been on a group in Rochdale, near Manchester, whose conviction last May made huge headlines. Every bit as deplorable as the abuse they committed is the fact that cops and social workers to whom some of these girls turned for help had chosen for a long time not to do anything about the situation. Former Labour MP Ann Cryer excoriated police officers and people at Child Protective Services who "were petrified of being called racist and so reverted to the default of political correctness. They had a greater fear of being perceived in that light than in dealing with the issues in front of them."
