UK: Labour suspends anti-racism campaigner for “Islamophobia” for noting Muslim rape gangs are Muslim

Robert Spencer:

He also noted that some Muslims in Britain were creating a nation within a nation and had no patriotic regard for the British state as it is currently constituted.

What did Phillips say that was false?

It doesn’t matter. Labour, and the British intelligentsia as a whole, is at war with reality. Britain has gone insane, and its demise as a free society is well underway.

“Labour’s race vendetta: Equality champion Trevor Phillips claims he was suspended from party for ‘Islamophobia’ as ‘Corbynista payback’ for his criticism of its handling of anti-Semitism crisis,” by James Tapsfield and Zak Newland, Mailonline, March 9, 2020:

Former equalities watchdog Trevor Phillips today blamed ‘gangsterism’ and ‘Corbynista payback’ after he was suspended from Labour over allegations of Islamophobia.

The anti-racism campaigner, who previously chaired the Equality and Human Rights Commission, faces an investigation and could be expelled from the party.

He was among a group of 24 public figures who last year declared their refusal to vote for the Labour Party because of its association with anti-Semitism.

However, Mr Phillips revealed he is now being investigated over past comments, some of which date back years, including remarks on Pakistani Muslim men sexually abusing children in northern British towns.

Comments about the failure of some Muslims to wear poppies for Remembrance Sunday are also thought to be under scrutiny.

Other remarks refer to the sympathy shown by some in an opinion poll towards the motives of the Charlie Hebdo attackers.

However, Mr Phillips today mounted a robust defence. Speaking on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, he said: ‘I’m surprised about what is and always has been an open and democratic party decides that its members cannot have healthy debate about how we address differences of values and outlooks.

Labour’s ‘draft charge sheet’ accuses Trevor Phillips of using language ‘which targets or intimidates members of ethnic or religious communities, or incites racism, including Islamophobia’.

He is also accused of engaging in conduct that ‘may reasonably be seen to demonstrate hostility or prejudice based on race, religion or belief’, involved ‘Islamophobic actions, stereotypes and sentiments’, and ‘undermines the party’s ability to campaign against racism’.

Grooming scandal

In a 2016 pamphlet, Mr Phillips wrote: ‘The most sensitive cause of conflict in recent years has been the collision between majority norms and the behaviours of some Muslim groups.

‘In particular, the exposure of systematic and longstanding abuse by men, mostly of Pakistani Muslim origin in the north of England.’

Remembrance Day

Mr Phillips describe a visit to an industrial site where many African and eastern European immigrants worked but noticed a marked difference in those who were planning to mark Remembrance Sunday.

He wrote: ‘Poppies were everywhere. One group had clearly adapted to the mainstream, the other had not.’

‘Nation within a nation’

In 2016 Mr Phillips was quoted in a Times story on a survey of values, referring to ‘the unacknowledged creation of a nation within the nation, with its own geography, its own values and its own very separate future’.

‘Let us be clear about this. They say I’m accusing Muslims of being different.

‘Well, actually, that’s true. Muslims are different and, in many ways, I think that’s admirable.’…

Lets hope that Cindy doesn’t see this and get her pet plod force to do the same here.

Any comment, no matter how truthful it might be, is now fair game for them. Any reason to shut us down will be leapt upon by these idiots.

  1. The narrative is that all peoples are identical, equal and interchangeable.
    Questioning this narrative is a crime.

    What kind of ideology would promote such a narrative? Why would they do so?

    When an authority punishes the speakers of demonstrable and testable truths, then the alarm bells should start ringing.



  2. Well we know from our very own Labour party what lengths they will go to in an effort to cover up sexual scandals but using islamophobia to try and hide systemic child rape is a new low even for this pack of scum but i guess we have seen this unfold already with Tommy Robinson now watch the system fk over Mr Phillips exactly the same way as the muslim narrative must not be questioned by the common folk



  3. Posted on HYS but fits in better here.

    Another step of “wrong think” being put down, eating their own, a labour party stalwart who calls out the truth.
    A man who can genuinely bring an interesting point of view, and who can even admit when he is wrong. This time he has been on point on a number of issues. 🙂

    The ‘draft charge sheet’ accuses Mr Phillips of using language ‘which targets or intimidates members of ethnic or religious communities, or incites racism, including Islamophobia’. …..
    ……. The anti-racism campaigner, who previously chaired the Equality and Human Rights Commission, faces an investigation and could be expelled from the party. …..


    He probably danced for years on the “head of a pin” to make his points, but just “misspoked” as step to far, and so the opportunity for the Left to do the practice of ”cancel” him.
    He was making worth while sharp points, but his party has a “reputation” and does not like being jabbe so has to be protected.

    So is this the same type of “reputation” path that the current NZ government is sending us down?
    And as noted above by Garbageman, the current government has its own customized systems in parallel going down this track.



  4. “In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.”
    (George Orwell didn’t say that, but like many sayings that Churchill never said either – they are still pretty on the mark).

    The good thing is, the censure has drawn attention to his comments on Islam and demographic change.
    The bad thing is, not everyone has the conviction or the courage to even make such mild and reasonable observations.

    Jeez, the bar for harmful words has dropped awfully low.



  5. How the media practice “cancel” de-platforming, and how the Muslim Council of Britain seems to have a lot of say.

    Showing some who are involved in Orwellian double speak,

    Others in NZ are also busy in deplatforming, as part of their “cancel” culture, like Professor Paul Spoonley coming out on the news today, and how likely some may be planning with criminal intent,

    One law for all, but will it be based on sharia, or a system of customary law, based on mana, tapu rahui, utu, muru & etc.?



  6. As bad as this is, try pointing out a few facts about Israel or Jews. Then you will see real hate and intolerance.

    We already made our bed when we started throwing people in jail for questioning jews. Anti semitism is fake just like Islamaphobia.

    In both cases it is simply consequences of behavior, not some fake mental condition.
