It seems there are no racist depths to which Sajid Javid will not stoop.
We have already discussed his racism on This Site, here…
Now, Mr Javid has hit a new low. Read:
These sick Asian paedophiles are finally facing justice. I want to commend the bravery of the victims. For too long, they were ignored. Not on my watch. There will be no no-go areas https://t.co/cZGqDOxt4u

“These sick Asian paedophiles are finally facing justice. I want to commend the bravery of the victims. For too long, they were ignored. Not on my watch. There will be no no-go areas.”
He was responding to a BBC news report on the jailing of a paedophile ring in Huddersfield. It states:
“Twenty men have been found guilty of being part of a grooming gang that raped and abused girls as young as 11 in Huddersfield.
“The men were convicted of more than 120 offences against 15 girls.
“Victims were plied with drink and drugs and then “used and abused at will” in a seven-year “campaign of rape and abuse” between 2004 and 2011.
“At Leeds Crown Court, the ringleader, Amere Singh Dhaliwal, 35, was jailed for life with a minimum of 18 years.
“Other members of the gang were jailed for between five and 18 years but the court heard many perpetrators have never been identified.
“Details of the men’s convictions and sentences can only now be published after reporting restrictions on a series of trials were partially lifted.
“During the three trials, jurors heard how the men – who are all British Asians mainly of Pakistani heritage – preyed on young, vulnerable girls, one of whom was described as having the mental age of a seven-year-old.”
Maybe you think he hasn’t said anything wrong. The paedophiles concerned were Asian – in fact, they were of Pakistani descent, as is Mr Javid. But that’s not the point.
The point is that his words potentially endanger the innocent by stirring up hatred on the grounds of race.
Change ‘Asian’ to ‘black’ or ‘Jewish’. An utter nadir for Tories.
Fortunately Javid has the personality of a bog brush so this garbage will stay at home office. https://t.co/gGZuzuAFZ6

Mr Bastani was referring to this Tweet by Mr Javid:
If Corbyn had said “Asians” or “Blacks” instead of “Zionists” he’d be gone by now. The fact he’s still there, tells us all we need to know about what the Labour Party has become https://t.co/wMj0duFqNY

So now it is not only racism but hypocrisy. Mr Javid was happy to accuse Jeremy Corbyn of anti-Semitism (falsely – Zionism is a political doctrine, not a race or ethnicity), and is happy to endanger Asians himself.
Still fuzzy about it? Here’s Ash:
Language like this puts British Asians at risk of racist violence – and what’s more, does nothing to prevent or address child sexual exploitation.
We can reject both racism and rape culture. It isn’t hard. https://t.co/k2QPOojiox

Aleesha makes a good point:
Can we stop debating the ethnicity and religion of sexual predators and actually spend that time advocating for measures to protect young girls and women from becoming victims of it.

But Seema nails it:
I know several people who have been abused by men who were not Asian or Muslim and can personally support Ms Chandwani’s guarantee. And by the way, the people I know did not get justice because the police blocked it.
Now Ms Chandwani moves onto a very important issue:
On the subject of the far-right and sexual abuse, Saboteur Aesop makes the big point:
Tommy Robinson could have caused Huddersfield grooming trials to collapse and child rapists go free https://t.co/f7m0ZEKF0M
— Saboteur Aesop 🔵 (@TheFabledAesop) October 19, 2018
So Stephen Christopher Yaxley-Lennon (aka Tommy Robinson) nearly caused the collapse of the Hudderfield paedophile case with live-streamed reports claiming to expose the crimes (but actually in danger of prejudicing justice), after making a speech about Muslims and “jihad rape gangs”.
And there is a disproportionate number of recent cases of child sexual abuse and grooming by men in the far-right. I can’t pin this on Mr Yaxley-Lennon because I don’t have any evidence, but there’s no better way to divert suspicion of a crime from oneself than accusing others of it.
And that’s exactly what racist Sajid Javid did when he attacked Jeremy Corbyn over his use of the word “Zionists”. Did he really think we would not recognise his attempt at deflection?
