Rotherham and the Progressive Narrative

The recent child sex scandal in Rotherham, UK has dealt a serious blow to the progressive, multicultural narrative. Oh, so you mean that importing hundreds of thousands of Muslims from Pakistan, the child rape capital of the world, resulted in child rape and kidnapping in your own country? Gee, who would have ever predicted that? Opening your borders to people from a country where roughly one third of men say that not only have they raped a child, but that they see nothing wrong with having done so, wasn’t a good idea after all it appears. Yeah, oops.

Joyce Thacker, the cold, dead eyes of progress.
Of course the real scandal is not that a group of backward, third world mud people behaved as such, but that the liberal bureaucrats whose job it was to oversee public safety allowed it to happen for fear that public knowledge of it would undermine their larger agenda. This is disgusting and reprehensible, but not surprising. The left wing civil service in Britain, and increasingly in other countries, no longer sees its job as carrying out mundane public administration, but as overseeing a project of multicultural social engineering. The biggest threat to that is of course the nascent nationalistic (or even gasp racist) sentiments of the native white population. Feeding that sentiment must be avoided at all cost, even if the protection of children has to be compromised.

Even Andrew Norfolk, the investigative reporter who broke the scandal wide open confessed to this mindset:

“I didn’t want the story to be true because it made me deeply uncomfortable. The suggestion that men from a minority ethnic background were committing sex crimes against white children was always going to be the far right’s fantasy story come true. Innocent white victims, evil dark-skinned abusers. Liberal angst kicked instinctively into top gear.”

Now, one could go into the usual rhetoric about how progressives don’t see POC as having agency and therefore their behavior is not actually threatening to the agenda, while the behavior of white people potentially is, and therefore white people must be managed and monitored at all times and blah blah blah. That is all well and good, and probably true, but there is more to that. These people are not just negligent, but malicious. Joyce Thacker, the dead-eyed, soulless woman who has overseen child services in Rotherham since 2008 not only completely failed to act in defense of white children suffering sexual abuse in her jurisdiction, she removed nonwhite children from their foster parents because those parents voted for the UK Independence Party. She has also chosen to use resources to track down whistleblowers, rather than keep her own house in order. Clearly she is capable of getting things done when it suits her actual agenda. She is not incompetent. She is evil.

A recent editorial in the Guardian highlights the panicked state of mind of the progressive left since the breaking of the scandal. These revelations coupled with other recent headlines about “Britons” fighting for ISIS and now another beheading on their own streets has the multicultural narrative reeling. But there is no way they are going down without a fight. The tactic is of course to change the subject and focus on the mean, awful racism of people that want child rapists to be punished, removed from their communities and the bureaucrats that enabled them fired. Actually calling out the perpetrators is playing the “blame game” you see. And we can’t have that now. It wouldn’t be proper.

Keep it real brah.
And who are these racist wreckers that pose such a threat to a future British multicultural utopia?

There are probably 40 people there, though there have been as many as 200 in the week. They have a little commune of tents, and a huge number of crisps. “For five years, I’ve been travelling around this country, telling people what’s going on,” said Andrew Edge, another EDL member. “I’ve been spat at. I’ve had urine poured on me. All I want to do is get the message across. Because it’s not just Rotherham. Preston’s got a major problem. Dewsbury is absolutely full of it, I’ve seen it with my own eyes”.

Wow. So roughly 200 native Britons camped out, munching on potato chips, concerned about their country and communities. What pigs. What low class filth.

There is a melodramatic, febrile atmosphere that makes it impossible to take anything at face value…

The abuse of all those girls has become a catalyst, a Franz Ferdinand event, the trigger for something brutal and destructive. How much does it have to do with justice, with recompense, with preventing abuse in the future? I don’t think very much.

Translation, the sentiments of a group of 200 white people outside the confines of the standard progressive narrative makes this woman extremely nervous. She sees this as much more important than the scandal itself, and would rather call them out for racism than hold any of her fellow travelers to account. But then, she doesn’t think they actually did anything wrong in the first place. They were trying to prevent these very same racists from scoring a political victory after all, and that is the most important thing. The entire point of the progressive enterprise is the destruction of these very people and anyone that thinks like them, so why would we expect anything different?
