The screenshot below is how the Daily Mail presented comments from an article written by Trevor Phillips, former head of the Equalities and Human Rights commission, and a vigourous campaigner for equal rights and against racism. He was a favourite of the New Labour project under Tony Blair and a champion of ‘multiculturalism and diversity’.

The comments above were made Match 2015 Unusually for a left wing figure and to his great credit, Mr. Phillips was admittting he had been wrong to argue in favour of mass immigration from theocratic Muslim nations, expressing his disgust at the racism, anti – semitism and wave of violent and sex crimes, and observing that he doubted Muslims can ever integrate into western society because of the difference in the mindset.
Now Phillips is at it again, his latest attack on the multiulturalism industry is not just a case of biting the hand that feeds him, but rather chewing it to a pulp. Breitbart London reports:
The founding chairman of the Equality and Human Rights Commission under Tony Blair has warned that UK is about to “sleepwalk to catastrophe” because it’s leaders too “complacent” and “squeamish” to talk about mass migration.
“Rome may not yet be in flames, but I think I can smell the smouldering whilst we hum to the music of liberal self-delusion”, wrote Trevor Philips, before directly comparing his stark warning to that given by Enoch Powell almost 60 years ago.
“He too summoned up echoes of Rome with his reference to Virgil’s dire premonition of the River Tiber ‘foaming with much blood’.
“This much-studied address is, simultaneously, lauded as an epic example of the use of political rhetoric – and also as a ghastly testament to the power of unbridled free speech. Either way, it effectively put an end to Powell’s career as an influential leader.
“Everyone in British public life learnt the lesson: adopt any strategy possible to avoid saying anything about race, ethnicity (and latterly religion and belief) that is not anodyne and platitudinous.”
In an outspoken 100-page paper, published by the think-tank Civitas, Mr. Philips also singled out Muslims for being actively “resistant to the traditional process of integration” and thus threatening “liberal democracy” and the Western way of life.
Culture, rather that true racism, is the problem in Britain today he explains. “The divisions could be described as ethnocultural – and they rest on deeply held values and behaviours, which will not lightly be abandoned by Jewish, or (multiracial) Muslim communities for example”.
He’s spot on again.
For far to long the politically correct left have laboured under the misapprehension that race is a purely black and white affair and that only white people are capable of being racist. In fact there is far more black on black racism in African than white on black racism in Europe, and the Indian sub continent is probably the most racist area on the planet. Black and white are not races, but labels. No human being was ever black or white.
In his paper, Philips slams politicians, the media and the educated elite for acting like the Emperor Nero, fiddling while Rome burned, trying to impose the false ideal of ‘multiculturalism’ based on skin colour, while suppressing the diversity of ideas and values, and completely blind to what he calls the “dark side of the diverse society”s, the problems created by thrusting together people of incompatible cultures because they happen to have a similar skin colour, and then dumping the whole ethnic and cultural melange among the strata of European society least equipped to cope with the problems generated by this influx.
“Squeamishness about addressing diversity and its discontents risks allowing our country to sleepwalk to a catastrophe that will set community against community, endorse sexist aggression, suppress freedom of expression, reverse hard-won civil liberties, and undermine the liberal democracy that has served this country so well for so long,” he writes.
Mr. Phillips implicates himself and his role as ‘equalities Czar’ for the New Labour project in the creation of this problem.
At the first PEGIDA UK walk in February, when asked if his government’s policies were part of the reason anti-Islamisation groups like PEGIDA exist today, he told media representatives: “I’m sure that people will blame me for all sorts of problems”, .
His paper also highlights links between unacceptable attitudes towards rape and “cultural background”, mentioned the industrial scale rape of young (mostly under the age of consent) non-Muslim women by Muslim men in Rotherham and the mass sex attacks in Cologne, Germany – both of which went virtually unreported b mainstream media because of a fear of being labelled “racist”(except for a few members of the loony left who put fingers to keyboard to deny these happalling crimes happened). How typical of the left, that level of hypocrisy is, which can condemn a ‘white’ man as a rapist for merely inappropriate touching or in certain famous instances where the woman has willingly consented to sex only to decide she was raped the morning after, when she found the man was relatively rich and famous, but defend a dark skinned attacker’s sexual violence because multiulturalism. As Phillips himself puts it:
“The typical response of Britain’s political and media elite confronted with awkward facts has been evasion, because – we say – talking about these issues won’t solve the problem; instead, it will stigmatise vulnerable minority groups.
“Any attempt to ask whether aspects of minority disadvantage may be self-inflicted is denounced as ‘blaming the victim’. Instead, we prefer to answer any difficult questions by focusing on the historic prejudices of the dominant majority. In short, it’s all about white racism.”
Western elites often congratulate themselves because of the fall in overt racism and neo-Nazism, he explains, yet their top down censorship has left ordinary people without a voice. Normal people many not be bigoted, but rapid change and fragmentation of their communities breeds anger.
“… Rather it is the appearance of non-English names above the shop-fronts in the high street; the odd decision to provide only halal meat in some schools; evidence of corruption in municipal politics dominated by one ethnic group or another.
“Such headlines, frequently misreported, but often grounded in some real change, provoke muttering in the pub, or grumbling at the school gate.
“They become gathering straws in a stiffening breeze of nativist, anti-immigrant sentiment. And still, our political and media elites appear not to have scented this new wind. We maintain a polite silence masked by noisily debated public fictions such as ‘multiculturalism’ and ‘community cohesion’.
Comparing himself to Enoch Powell, the conservative former ‘future Prime Minister’ who scuppered his career with a speech on the dangers of mass immigration when his paraphrasing of Roman poet Virgil’s Aeneid, “Like the Roman I seem to see the River Tiber flowing with much blood,” was, deliberately one suspects, widely misinterpreted in the media and by left wing politicians, Trevor Phillips said, “Rome may not yet be in flames, but I think I can smell the smouldering whilst we hum the music of liberal self delusion.”
