Dr Julia Gasper

Dr Julia Gasper

First published in News

Controversial academic Julia Gasper is among the candidates in the upcoming Quarry and Risinghurst by-election for Oxford City Council.

It will take place on Thursday, September 18, triggered by the resignation of former Labour city councillor Laurence Baxter, who has moved to the Czech Republic for work.

Dr Gasper, who has in the past linked homosexuality with paedophilia and was previously a UKIP candidate for the same ward in 2012, is standing for the English Democrats, while Katharine Harborne is standing for the Conservatives.

Chewe Munkonge is standing for the Labour Party, Headington county councillor Roz Smith for the Lib Dems and Liz Taylor is the Green Party candidate.

Katharine Harborne called round the other evening. She seems like a strong candidate, although she's up against some stiff competition in Roz Smith. And I'm not sure the Conservatives have a very strong brand in the ward.

Dr. Gaspar knows what she is talking about. But she is not the only academic who has exposed the link between paedophilia and homosexuality. Dr Hans-Christian Raab did; and lost his place on a government committee. Even though he was quoting the government's own research! As long as political correctness is given more respect than truth we will never get out of the culture that let down the Rotherham sexually abused girls so badly. Dr. Gaspar has the sort of courage, integrity and intelligence that we need in public life.

Dr Gaspar is perfectly correct to link paedophilia with homosexuality. In my own research over 70% of gay men wanted sex with children. One reason is that they do not yet have HIV. Paedophilia is a constant feature in gay literature. But to admit to this truth brings the wrath of homosexuals on whistleblowers, so few tell the truth. Meanwhile there is a steadily growing number of under-age AIDS cases year on year. Of course once my comments are published homosexuals will tick the thumbs-down symbol, making it seem that what I said is nonsense! How childish! But the stats say it all: homosexuals are responsible for the world pandemic of AIDS (a verifiable fact and also summarised in my own three-year research back in 1985), and they wish to give this vile disease to children. They can tick the thumbs-down symbol all they wish, but the facts remain the facts.

It amazes me that in the wake of the Savile scandal and the Rotherham report, revealing such extensive and far-reaching corruption, specifically sex-slave gangs exploiting children in Yorkshire and several other cities, people can remain to blinkered and ready to abuse those who speak out on matters like paedophiles and paedophilia. Yes it is not PC - it is always labelled either "racist" or anti-gay" . Newspapers will publish articles like this which amount to a form of bullying. But facts are facts. If there were more honest and morally-concerned people in our councils and in public life, fewer sleazy leftists with PIE and NCCL credentials, the terrible suffering of children such as we have seen in Rotherham could have been avoided.
