Meanwhile the Telford Child Sex Scandal continues to pick up steam

You can be forgiven if you haven't heard of this.  I'll admit I hadn't heard of it until a month or so ago.  Unlike the Priest Abuse Scandal, which saw the media descend on the Church like soldiers hitting the beaches at Normandy, and occupied headlines, front pages, special broadcasts, weekly series, A-list Hollywood productions, and endless lawsuits, this has remained under the radar.

Cosmic coincidence no doubt. Whether the Left really believes or doesn't believe its own propaganda, that only the Christian West and America are evil and everyone else is lovely, I don't know. If Leftists think that, once they've ground Christian civilization to dust, they'll just turn on the next monotheistic bad guys and do the same to them, I'm not sure.

Whatever it is, Muslims can do and say and advocate almost anything and receive barely a wrist slap from the Left.  Most often, the Left bends over backwards to avoid discussing or even speaking of such things.  Sometimes they'll just turn things upside down and find a way to blame the Western Christian tradition. True, technically the Left joins various rights organizations in condemning the manifold human rights violations across the Islamic world.  But in a strange twist, it sees no  connection with Islam as a whole, and seizes upon any movement in a positive direction as proof that nothing needs to be said or done.  Islam rocks.

This isn't to say that Muslims are all rapists or that Islam is about raping girls or conquering the world.  Most Muslims, when weighed ounce for ounce, are like most Christians, Atheists, Buddhists, Hindus, Jews, or anyone else.  They wake up in the morning, get ready for the day, hope the best for their kids, go to work, get stuck in traffic, have to mow the yard, pay bills and go to the ball game.

FWIW, so did Nazis.  We're all human, but some can be rather bad.  And even if the bad ones are a minority, that minority can sometimes dupe a majority that is too concerned with college loans and wedding dates.  But even the good ones don't all see the end of the human game in the same terms.  And it's the height of arrogance mixed with ignorance to believe everyone in the world wants a nice, post-Western, post-Christian secular Leftist socialist vision of the world once the dust settles.

Which is why, perhaps, when stories like this happen, they receive so little attention.  As has been demonstrated time and again, when various 'designated minorities' run afoul of the narrative by being murdered, attacked, raped or whatever, by other 'designated minorities', then that's when they are also swept under the carpet.  Just ask yourself, if this was equal in every way, but was connected to the Catholic Church, or some other European Christian sect, do you think you'd hear so little about it?  Do you really think so?  Perhaps I'm being unfair, but there's a point when credulity just can't withstand the overwhelming evidence.

    This does put me in mind of those who say one must give up guns to make children safe - well does this mean others need to give up their religion to make children safe? What about their aim to immigrate?

    Yes, in theory one shouldn't have to suffer for the crimes of the group, but if the institutions can't put in the work to properly police the people who do this, then the only answer left is to keep them out.

    I'm starting to grow concerned about the backlash this kind of thing is going to foment.

    1. To keep it consistent, you'd think. If you think on it, the gun control movement is merely a loud majority buying into the new 'I'm perfectly willing to sacrifice their rights for my protection' movement. Ignoring problems with some rights and focusing on others merely keeps with the latest chosen demographic for scapegoating.

    2. And did you notice that in the link above, the victim still had to play the equivalence game (noting that Christianity has some flaws too - just like Islam).

      It calls to mind this essay.

      "But men are stronger than women," I said. "When it comes to violence, they are at an advantage."

      "That's a sexist thing to say," she replied.

      A girl who had absorbed nothing at school had nevertheless absorbed the shibboleths of political correctness in general and of feminism in particular.

    3. Oh yeah. That's classic. Christianity is evil. Islam has problems, but don't forget Christianity is also evil. It's about four or five generations indoctrinated into hating the Christian West, so that's the best they can do when confronted with evidence that the narrative might not be accurate.

    4. Let's make it a little more stark.
      She said she was asked about a speech she gave in Belgium for a nationalist group, was quizzed on her political ideology, and was also asked about religion and whether she was a Christian extremist.

      That girl? Denied entry into the UK.

      Now for comparison...
      Hassan had lived in ISIS-held territory before illegally entering Britain through the Channel Tunnel. He told immigration officers he had trained with the terror group.

      Allowed into the country (where he then tried to commit a terrorist attack).

      And Britain has now thrown someone into jail for youtube videos. Where he trained his dog to do a silly nazi salute.

      Insanity doesn't begin to describe the world.

    5. The Left has aligned with Islam. I don't know why. I don't know if it imagines it will eventually be able to smack Islam around, or if it really believes it is the brave hero, sweeping in to save a thankful world that has struggled under the evils of the Christian West. I really don't know. But it's clear that the Left sees no problems at all with Islam in any capacity, seeing only the threats from those who don't embrace the new progress as the only enemies.
