Another day, another dollar! That’s the Britain First philosophy and it shows. They know that fear and hatred are big money-spinners and Biffers milk any hint of division and paranoia for all it’s worth.
Yesterday afternoon they posted another rehashed old post about child sexual exploitation in Rotherham. As if the beleaguered South Yorkshire town hasn’t had enough of these lying scumbags and their religiously motivated modern ‘blood-libel’. But their timing was a little awry yesterday.
They’d have done better to ignore Rotherham altogether rather than remind people of their role in creating and maintaining tensions in the town. Yesterday was the day that Dale Jones (30) was convicted of the racially-motivated murder of Mushin Ahmed (81). We await the verdict in respect of co-defendant Damien Hunt, also aged 30.
Discretion has never been a Biffer virtue though, a fact that was ably demonstrated when they posted this yesterday afternoon.
Although the Britain First introduction describes the 6 as a Muslim grooming gang, two of those convicted (yes – that’s a full 33%) were British born white, non-Muslims. It’s funny how the Biffers neglected to make that point in their headline. It’s almost as if they want to give a false impression.
Also on the same day that the Biffers posted the above Facebook meme, S. Yorkshire police and Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council issued statements about the long-term investigation that has only just completed its report. You can read the MBC statement here, including the part about not letting people use the tragedy to divide their community.
You can also read S. Yorkshire police responses to frequently asked questions (FAQs) here. In particular notice the statement about ethnic background of perpetrators.
Let’s just restate that for the hard of understanding. 10% of the perpetrators were Asian (not necessarily Muslim). 72% (more than 7 times as many) were of Northern European racial origin. That means White, by the way. The same pattern emerges all across the UK.
To put it another way – there is a very real problem with child sexual exploitation in this country. And a particular race of perpetrators features very highly in the crime statistics. It’s also a very gender biased crime with the vast majority of perpetrators being male.
The solution then is obvious.
Let’s send all the white men back to their countries of origin.
That’s not as crazy as it seems. There won’t be a single white Brit whose ancestry can’t be genetically determined to hail from mainland Europe or even Africa. If we want to stop child sexual exploitation on British streets – send all the white men back to Africa!
Of course, we don’t seriously want to suggest forced repatriation of anyone to their ancestral country (or continent) of origin but it does highlight just how ludicrous it is to blame an entire race (or religion for that matter) for a problem they hardly feature in at all.
If we’re going to tackle child sexual exploitation in UK we need to take a leaf out of Rotherham’s book and do what they’ve been doing for the last couple of years. We need to tackle it together without getting distracted by over-generalised and wrong assumptions about race or religion.
Let’s start by rejecting those divisive fools who would exploit the victims further for their own political and racist ends. Let’s challenge the hateful rhetoric of Britain First and their kind whenever we come across it and let’s make sure that the people who peddle this poison know exactly what the rest of us think about them.
We can tackle child sexual exploitation if we do it together.
United we stand. Divided we fall.
