Political correctness. We’ve seen it slowly, but surely, creeping into all sections of society from the media, to the education system to, of course, our politics. When Boris Johnson described Women wearing the Burqa as looking similar to “letterboxes” he was grilled through the coals, called “islamophobic”, his own party chairman Brandon Lewis launched an investigation into his conduct and so did Cressida Dick the Police commissioner, amid soaring knife crime, it was headline news. The PM urged him to apologize, even though he never even called for a ban, which 57% of the British public support according to YouGov data. Although this may seem trivial, this kind of politically correct mindset has actually led to the deaths of thousands. Don’t believe me? Well, let me explain.
During her time as home secretary, Theresa May introduced reforms to police stop and search powers justifying her actions by saying “black men are seven times more likely to be stopped by police than whites”, despite the fact that the only in-depth study showed if anything whites were targeted more than blacks. The consequences of this utterly ignominious stumble have been devastating, according to the Office for national statistics (ONC) knife crime rose 22% in England and Wales. Furthermore, soft approaches to policing like this one has devastated our nation’s capital, London, as an article from the Telegraph states “reports have suggested that criminals are deliberately removing their helmets in a bid to try and get the police to stop chasing them because it makes the pursuit more unsafe”.
This is thanks to the Mets pursuit policy put in place in 2015 after the death of an 18-year-old Moped rider, which has disincentivised policemen from giving chase to criminals fearing they will be prosecuted for doing their job. As a result of this fear, Moped crime has skyrocketed.
More than 60 crimes using mopeds or motorbikes were carried out every day in London on average over the past year – a 50% increase on the previous 12 months. As criminals have overtime inevitably taken advantage of this loophole, to avoid being chased. It’s gotten so bad that even Mayor Sadiq Khan has u-turned on his pledge to do “everything in his power “to cut stop and search and has instead ordered an increase among soaring violent crime in the capital after London’s murder rate overtook New York’s for the first time ever.
Rape gangs also run rampant throughout the UK and Police have avoided prosecution of these individuals for years, over fears of being called racist, instead, they started by punishing the victims the vast majority of whom are white British girls.
As an article from the Independent points out “Grooming gangs abused more than 700 women and girls around Newcastle with “arrogant persistence” after police appeared to punish victims while letting the perpetrators walk free, a case review has found”, the vast majority of the perpetrators being Pakistani Muslim, as research, by the anti-extremism organization Quilliam, which looked at 58 cases of grooming gangs identified in the UK between 2005 and 2017, which led to 264 convictions for grooming have found. Of the 264 offenders, 84% were of Asian heritage, mostly Pakistani; 8% were black and 7% were white.
As a report from the Sunday Mirror shows, authorities in Telford became aware of the problem in the 1990s, however failed to act on the continued drugging, beating and rape of a thousand girls, some of whom were as young as 11 most of whom most were white British girls, until an investigation was conducted over a decade later. One victim alleged that the police tried to cover up why her abuser was not jailed because they were scared she would come out with her story to the press, the report alleges. The report states that the police avoided sharing information about the rapists with Telford’s Asian community, over fears of “accusations of racism”. Let that sink in.
In Rotherham, over 1500 girls were the victims of Child sexual exploitation, ignored by the police, the councils and social workers because it shatters the left-wing narrative that multiculturalism is inherently good and that all cultures are equal. Because there’s no doubt the perpetrators have been influenced by the cultures of their homeland, as has been shown by the report. It’s no secret that views towards Women in Pakistan and other Islamic countries are nothing short of barbaric ” as a result when assimilation is not achieved this kind of “national disaster”, as described by Labour MP Sarah Champion, where over 1 million girls have been victims, is inevitable.”
It is painfully ironic that the many of the ills of society which need to be corrected are dismissed, as the means for tackling such action is deemed as racist, despite the fact that stabbings, female genital mutilation and forced marriages, all of which fall into this category, disproportionately affect those from minority backgrounds, the very people the left claims to care about. Such a predicament is wholly undesirable because it promotes virtual signalling about protecting minorities above the actual interests of minorities, simply so the middle class can feel good about themselves while doing nothing and actually promoting policies which hurt minorities disguised as “compassion”.
Political correctness also works against the interest of White working-class Britons, let’s not forget. The equality act 2010 outlaw’s discrimination based on various protected characteristics such as race, gender, sexuality etc. Yet this is not applied equally, as many employers openly discriminate against white people by employing quotas which actively undermine their ability to succeed simply due to their race. Such as in the Police force, on public boards (in Scotland) or the fire brigade. As the Daily Mail states in relation to the West Midlands Fire Service “The fire service, one of the biggest in the country, wants 60 per cent of new recruits to be women, and 35 per cent to be from black and minority ethnic (BME) groups by 2021, a leaked memo showed. The source claimed that, in a bid to reach the target, the pass rate had been altered to make it easier for people from those groups to get through the test.” Not to mention the Athena SWAN initiative, a taxpayer-funded attack on Men pursuing STEM fields, designed to favour Women.
It is absolutely asinine that the advocates of these quotas call themselves “liberals” when these quotas violate the fundamental principles of liberalism including gender and racial equality as well as equal opportunity. If a law is not applied equally then it is not worth the paper it is written on, it will simply be used as a tool by those in power. If White British Men do not have protections from discrimination then neither should any other ethnic group in society.
In Schools it’s not uncommon for left-wing teachers to barrage students about the idea of “White Privilege” or the racist evils of their country’s history, despite the fact that Britain was the first nation to abolish slavery. Some leftists even claim that white people cannot be victims of racism, never mind the fact that nearly half the victims of racial murders between 1995-2004 were white and the vast majority of victims of racism in the UK are white people, according to a freedom of information request from the home office.
At a time when unemployment is one of the major drivers of male suicide many companies and public sector organizations effectively openly discriminate against them with quotas. In 2013 the Male to female suicide rate was 3.5:1. At a time when White Working-Class boys are the worst performing ethnic group in the country, when it comes to GCSE results with ¾ failing to achieve a good result it seems White working-class boys, and Men more generally, are being abandoned by the prevailing politically correct intersectional dogma.
Take a moment to imagine if a business or public sector organization were to discriminate against black people or Women there would be public outrage, rightfully so, yet when the same happens to white males such actions are either ignored or celebrated as an embrace of “diversity” when in reality all that amounts to is racism against whites.
Our politicians should learn the lessons from the national disaster of Muslim Rape Gangs, which was brushed under the rug by local authorities and the police, they should learn the lessons of what happens when police have their capacity to fight crime hampered by do-gooder PC politicians and they should wake up to the discrimination faced by straight white males which goes unnoticed.
Politicians shouldn’t play games with people’s lives to appease the far left.
Political Correctness Kills!
