Is “Asian” A Euphemism?

Islamophobiaphobia is all the rage

Asia is a vast continent. At more than 17,000,000 square miles, containing 48 countries (and six not recognised by the UN) and inhabited by over 4,000,000,000 people, it is the largest continent on Earth. Asia stretches from the Arctic Ocean in the north to Sri Lanka in the south and from Istanbul and Tel Aviv in the west to Shanghai and Tokyo in the east. It is the cradle of civilisations from Mesopotamia to the Indus Valley and the Yellow River. It contains numerous cultures and religions and people from different parts of the continent have very different “racial” appearances. But if you believe the BBC and the Guardian, the UK is suffering from an epidemic of “Asians” exploiting young girls in cities across the country – Rochdale, Rotherham and, most recently, Newcastle. Not only is this not true and insulting to the large numbers of Britons with “Asian” heritage, it contradicts the evidence in these cases. One might almost be tempted to say that this word – “Asian” – has been deliberately chosen as a euphemism.It is obvious to everyone except the denizens of Jimmy Savile House and Guardian Towers that these crimes are not being committed by “Asians” but by folks who are overwhelmingly of Pakistani descent. And it’s not even all Pakistanis but folks who have been influenced by the conservative values of rural Pakistan. Those values are not the values that the aforementioned BBC/Guardian “progressives” would champion. Just last month, the BBC reported on the arrest of a group of councilors in Multan, Pakistan because they had ordered the rape of a 16 year old girl in revenge for an alleged rape carried out by her brother. Notice that – the girl in question had done nothing wrong, she was being punished for the sins of her brother. This is real patriarchy – the brutal policing of women and their sexuality – not lame tweets from the fool in the Oval Office.

Not content with smearing the more than 4,000,000 Britons of Asian heritage, the British Establishment are desperate to avoid any mention of the “I” or “M” words in conjunction with these sex abuse cases. Yet we are constantly reassured that these crimes have “nothing to do with Islam.” Pakistan is (allegedly) 96% Muslim; the other nationalities involved in the Newcastle case also come from similarly monocultural backgrounds – Bangladesh (86%), Iran (100%), Iraq (96%) and Turkey (99.8%). The great Trevor Phillips – who I have written in praise of before – has said he regrets popularising the fascist word “Islamophobia” when he was head of the equalities commission in the 1990s. On this particular case in Newcastle he said…

“What the perpetrators have in common is their proclaimed faith. They are Muslims, and many of them would claim to be practising. It is not Islamophobic to point this out, any more than it would be racist to point out that the most active persecutors of LGBT people come from countries where most people are, like me, black.”

Is this a religious problem? I don’t know. Is it a racial problem? Again, I don’t know but one of the abusers in the Newcastle case certainly had an interesting view of white people…

“All white women are only good for one thing. For men like me to fuck and use like trash. That’s all women like you are worth.”

I got this quote from the right-on Guardian, not some mad rag like the Express or the Mail.

What all these sex abuse cases appear to have in common is the desperate fear among the police, local authorities and social workers to avoid being called “racist” or “Islamophobic” for protecting vulnerable young girls from sexual predators. They appear to be suffering from “Islamophobiaphobia” – a debilitating fear of criticising anyone Muslim. This is where we are in 2017 – it is better for hundreds, if not thousands, of young women to be sexually abused than some middle class professional, whose job it is to protect those girls, getting called a nasty name.

The repugnant anti-Semite Naz Shah – MP for Bradford West – wrote this article in the Independent which contained the astonishing statement…

“Yes Pakistani men are disproportionately involved in grooming gangs and this particular model of abuse. And no that is not a racist statement.”

Shah then went on to try and deflect attention from this particular case by ranting on that “nearly 90 percent” of men guilty of child abuse in the UK are white. According to the 2011 census, 87.2% of the UK’s population is white so Shah’s point is mere statistics. What does appear to be true (I could be wrong) is that this type of child abuse – group abuse of young teenage girls from a different ethnicity – is more common amongst people of rural Pakistani heritage than the general population. What the answer to this problem is I don’t know. But blaming “racism” is not the answer and anyone using strawmen like “Islamophobia” to defend themselves against the disgusting crimes these people have been convicted of will find a special place in Hell reserved for them.
