Great Britian is an example of the cancer of political correctness eating away at a once vibrant body. Now watch, as the whole liberal theory unravels before your eyes - Melanie Phillips is our narrator:
...a rumour spread ...that a 14 year-old black girl had been gang-raped by between three and 25 Pakistani men...in the disturbances that followed a black Christian was set upon by up to 11 armed youths and stabbed to death as he walked home from the cinema, a mixed-race man was shot dead and an Asian taxi-driver was attacked.
And the media exploded the way it always does when there are race riots, correct? Eh, no...
By any standards such occurrences are deeply disturbing. If this had been white on black violence, there would have been a media feeding frenzy and the newspapers would have been full of reconstructions, analysis and instant opinions and recriminations. Instead, there has been near silence. The reason is obvious. The cult of multiculturalism holds that all minorities are victims of the majority, and therefore minorities must always be blameless. When two minorities start beating each other up, therefore, politically correct Britain is paralysed. By definition, it cannot divide up the actors in the drama into good guys and bad guys. There can be no minority bad guys. It dare not investigate what actually happened, who started it and who was to blame because no minority can ever be blamed without incurring the dreaded labels of ‘racism’ and ‘prejudice’.
And our progressive betters help society thusly:
The result is that a serious and dangerous breakdown in community relations has not been investigated or analysed, the murder of two innocent people has been treated with near-indifference and the implications for multiculturalism all but ignored
Its implications are obvious - multiculturalism is a non-working social model. When you immigrate to a new society, to a certain degree you must conform to its norms. The striving of the media to ignore events like these has actually drawn more attention to them. Fine with me...
And yet, may it be too late to save Britian?
