Trevor Phillips, former chair of the Equality and Human Rights Commission, who would appear to have carved a lucrative career out of other people's racism - either real or perceived - has found himself facing an investigation into his own racism, and has been somewhat ignominiously suspended from the Labour Party. "As ye sow so shall you reap", Trevor, or as the Russians would say (an appropriate analogy in this case, I would suggest) "you brought it home, you smell it!"
His crime? Expressing concerns about Pakistani Muslim men sexually abusing children in northern towns such as Rotherham and Rochdale. These were crimes that shocked the nation, and which, tragically, were allowed to happen for the simple fact that the police were afraid to risk allegations of racism from, well, people like Trevor Phillips.
Phillips has previously warned that there are certain elements in society seeking to silence legitimate concerns about orthodox Islamic doctrines and their social implications. Those elements, almost certainly, will have infiltrated the higher echelons of the Labour Party, and Phillips has just been "silenced". He himself has condemned the suspension, describing it as a form of "political gangsterism".
There is something grimly ironic about the Labour Party’s decision to suspend Trevor Phillips from its membership on the grounds of ‘Islamophobia’. For it was Phillips who helped introduce and popularise this bogus word and fraudulent concept in the first place.
The attack on Phillips is, of course, an attack on the the reputation of the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC), which is currently investigating the Labour Party over allegations of institutional anti-Semitism. Phillips is a former chairman of the EHRC, and before that he was head of its predecessor, the Commission for Racial Equality
'The Party must be purged of rascals, of bureaucratic, dishonest or wavering Communists, and of Mensheviks who have repainted their “facade” but who have remained Mensheviks at heart,' Lenin wrote in September 1921, just months before the good Lord purged Lenin himself.
The legacy of Lenin, however, apparently lives on in Jeremy Corbyn's Labour Party.
Phillips himself will have sat by while many people have been hung out to dry for expressing concerns about black street crime in the UK, of course. Former Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Paul Condon was quietly "retired" when in 1995 he revealed that 80% of street crime in London was committed by young black males. Trevor Phillips himself, then Chairman of the Runnymede Trust race research organisation, referred to Sir Paul's remarks as "dangerously inflammatory".
In 2008 Phillips declared that he could not back Obama in the Presidential elections as he was one “whose African ancestors never endured transatlantic slavery,” unlike “challengers,” such as Malcolm X ( a convicted criminal, black supremicist, and advocate of racial segregation). Obama was dismissed by Phillips as a “bargainer”.
Whilst many of us cheered Obama's historic win, Phillips surly response was to state that such a thing could never happen in the UK due to institutionalised racism, thus souring the dreams of millions of black and Asian youths, and ensuring that the race relations industry could continue to thrive on the back of their victimhood.
If Barack Obama had lived here I would be very surprised if even somebody as brilliant as him would have been able to break through the institutional stranglehold that there is on power within the Labour party
In reality, one suspects, Obama's victory posed an existential threat to the highly lucrative race relations industry, and that may be the reason why Phillips was so cold about him.
Now it is Phillips' turn. Schadenfreude, the Germans call it, Trevor.
