Multi-Culturalism And Rape
You want to see multi-culturalism at its most twisted? Then look no further than this bizarre and repulsive argument made by lawyer in Australia:
“A violent gang rapist should have been given a lesser sentence partly because he was a “cultural time bomb” whose attacks were inevitable, as he had emigrated from a country with traditional views of women, his barrister has argued.
MSK, who, with his three Pakistani brothers, raped several girls at their Ashfield family home over six months in 2002, was affected by “cultural conditioning … in the context of intoxification”, Stephen Odgers, SC, told the NSW Court of Criminal Appeal yesterday.
…After a special hearing, a judge concluded earlier this year that MSK was not mentally ill – the same conclusion reached by pre-sentence psychology reports in 2003.
Mr Odgers said the new evidence showed that he had a disease, which, combined with alcohol and the cultural conditioning of “a society with very traditional views of women”, was “clearly a factor in the commissioning of these offences”.
“The applicant was a cultural time bomb,” Mr Odgers said. “It was almost inevitable that something like this would happen. His culpability is lessened because of that combination.”
I’m not sure if that’s an argument for the defense, an offensive slur against Pakistanis, or a plea not to let anyone else from Pakistan into Australia.
Granted, Pakistan is a backwards country, especially in some of the tribal areas, but this guy is trying to make the ridiculous case that Pakistanis are such savages that they can’t stop themselves from participating in gang rapes. People have probably been charged with hate crimes for less.
In any case, this is what happens when multi-culturalism gets out of control. Instead of expecting someone from a foreign country to come here and assimilate into our culture, you get people believing that we should adjust our culture, laws, and lifestyles to accommodate those who’ve come here from afar. You follow that line of thinking to it’s natural endpoint and, yes, you end up defending Pakistani gang rapists on cultural grounds. That’s not a path we should go down here in America.
