I've studied the left's traditions for years and the idea of "group rights" is not something I've ever encountered. Even for something like the civil rights movement in the United States, the legal reforms pertained to the rights of individuals not to be discriminated against. Who are the primary intellectual proponents of "group rights"?
It's called collectivism for a reason.
It's pretty dishonest to ignore the fact that Egypt, Syria and Libya underwent revolution and war in the last decade, or that climate change and inequality is displacing significant numbers of people in Africa.
hah? Dishonest in what way.
Those mobs and gangs have been acting as enforcers for the regimes' in those countries for decades before the revolutions, when the revolutions came many of them escaped to Europe adding to the crime wave there.
These types of crimes still exist in these countries due to the mentality persisting, but it's far less organized.
And what does climate change has to do with sexual crimes and human trafficking gangs?
In the UK everyone knows that Asian is a term for South Asian. It's not political correctness, it's just the way the British speak.
That doesn't seem to be the case with the "politically incorrect" people who say those gangs are specifically from Pakistani and Afghani communities.
The left isn't causing the far-right to grow. Every aggravation of the far-right, whether globalization or immigration, is a mechanism of global capitalism.
The current "far right" ( which on a side note, is not far right but rather center and center right groups since you guys really don't know what far right actually looks like, you can look at the Baath ideology to know what far right really is) is mostly made of capitalists and neo-conservatives which both are for globalization, the anti immigration sentiment and the main drivers of the right to grow are local issues caused by mass immigration under the social policy of the left.
The left simply refuses to allow minorities to be scapegoated for problems created by wealth inequality.
Dude, dude, dude, how many times should I tell you that these propaganda lines don't really work with me?
You're not discussing the topic with someone in Britain who's still confused about the topic, you're discussing it with someone who lived in 3 middle eastern countries and is currently in one and have seen these things first hand over and over again.
This isn't scapegoating minorities, these are well known gangs in well known areas from well known group of people acting in near impunity due to the light hand of the law provided by the progressive left protecting and covering for these gangs.
If someone from the right came and said migrants are the cause for deteriorating infrastructure, then you can say they're scapegoating migrants. This isn't the case, those gangs are very specific and operate in very specific areas.
If it was the Russian mob operating in Russian migrant communities in well known areas and the police are not arresting them or atleast investigating them, we wont say they're scapegoating them if someone calls it out because it's known who it is and where it operates. This is the exact same case, simply with different country of origins.
The fascist nationalist
Syria has a fascist regime. Iraq had a fascist regime. We in Baalbek spent over 15 years fighting against Fascist occupation ending in 2005. I know what fascists are like.
The main body of the so called right in the west is made up of conservatives, classical liberals, libertarians, and centrists, not from fascists.
And nationalists are an entirely different thing from fascists.
stop scapegoating innocent people who are just trying to live their lives in peace.
Stating the fact that there are criminal human trafficking gangs, guided by extreme religious views, and operating in the Muslim communities in the UK and demanding the government to take action to end these gangs is not scapegoating "innocent people".
If they were scapegoating Muslims in general as a whole, then Muslims themselves in Muslim majority countries wont be suffering from and fighting against those same exact type of gangs.
