Why are nearly all European and American Leftists/socialists/”progressives” (as well as most feminists and the authorities) utterly silent on Islamic misogyny and rape?
The answer to that is brutally simple.
It's because most Muslims have brown and black skin. Thus the Left's racist and theory-driven anti-racism trumps both feminism and justice itself.
All this explains what happened in Cologne and Rotherham.
Leftist anti-racism (or the anti-racism policies and actions of councillors, the police, social workers, politicians, etc.) initially trumped the abuse of hundreds of German women and even erased any prior commitment to feminist principles.
You see, in the Left's “hierarchies of oppression”, racism is the worst sin. Yet Leftists themselves were profoundly racist for allowing all this to happen.
What I mean by that is that the Cologne and Rotherham scandals were largely the result of a double-dose of the Left's own brands of racism. Namely:
negative racism towards the largely white and working-class victims
of Europe's Muslim grooming-gangs and abusers.
**) Its positive/“inverted” (or patronising) racism towards the gangs themselves; which is based on the non-white skin colour of the Muslim rapists and abusers.So added to the Left's positive/inverted racism towards all black and brown people, you also have its negative racism towards non-Leftist whites.
All this was graphically displayed by what happened in Cologne and Rotherham. Though it has also happened throughout Europe and in many dissimilar cases.
Indeed this situation is so bad that not only have Leftists enabled the mass abuse of young girls, even after the shit had hit the fan (or after it had hit the national news), such Leftists still wanted things to carry on as before. That is, Leftists criticised those who spoke out against both the abuse and the political inaction; as well as agitated against the demonstrations which then occurred.
