After the latest attack in London, one Brit columnist gets it
Who knows what they were trying to communicate with that. Love? If so, for whom?
Last week in London another follower of Islam killed 5 innocent residents. Some he killed with his rented car, others with a knife.
One columnist and London resident despairs that this is the future--that foolish westerners will keep tolerating this, keep turning a blind eye to the philosophy behind it, will keep making empty gestures--like making hearts with their hands in memorials for those killed-- instead of acting to prevent it, or at least reduce the number of attackers to the truly insane.
London, she says, is a city so desperate to be seen as tolerant--so dominated by liberalism and the command to be politically correct--that no one is even allowed to name the problem. Liberals believe multiculturalism works, and because they run things that's the end of it. And innocents are killed--again and again.
Meanwhile the same liberals ban ads on the Underground if they show women in bikinis. (You have to wonder if they think someone is forcing the models to wear one.)
Liberal pols are endlessly tolerant of those who harm us--while the Home Office tries to shift the focus of public fear to white nationalists). Anyone who criticizes the killers is called a racist, "Islamophobe," xenophobe.
Like Swedish pols, UK politicians adamantly refuse to admit the truth about the threat we face, the horrors being committed by the foreigners we allowed to become residents. They refuse because to admit that anything's wrong--and desperately wrong--would be to admit that one of the core policies of the liberals is a disaster. That multiculturalism has not worked. That it is a huge failure and one big lie.
How many more attacks must happen before we acknowledge these are no longer the acts of ‘extremists’?
These events are no longer extreme. They are commonplace, almost an everyday occurrence.
The attackers are no longer extremists. They are simply more true to their beliefs. Beliefs which will be supported endlessly by the government's radio and television networks for the next few months until we buy into the narrative that this has nothing to do with any religion.
That in fact we should blame, say, Brexit supporters.
Anything but the truth.
How much longer will the west tolerate these attacks?
