I’ve been trying to take a break from current events and focus on survival solutions. However, the liberal progressive insanity can only pile so high before we are forced to take a step back and say, “Wow. Just, wow.” Let’s take a look at what’s been happening in Britain this year, and ask if America is hurtling down the same path.
The Face of London
When you think of all that Britain is known for in history: King Arthur, Robin Hood, Richard the Lionhearted and the Crusades defending Christianity from the Moors in the Holy Land, Shakespeare and the King James Bible, the bloody struggles between Protestants and Roman Catholics, John Milton and Paradise Lost, King George and the British Redcoats in America, the conquering of the Irish and the opium wars in Asia, Rudyard Kipling and British rule of India, the failures of Neville Chamberlain and the success of Winston Churchill, God save the Queen; this guy brings it all to mind, right?
If not, why not? He is, after all, the man the citizens of London elected to lead them. He was born on British soil to Sunni Muslim immigrants from Pakistan, so that makes him every bit as British as the Houses of Normandy, York, Lancaster, Windsor, and Tudor, right? Totally loyal to the land of his forefathers, right?
How’s he doing in leading the heart of noble England?
In September of 2016 Sadiq Khan was present in New York when Islamic terrorist Ahmad Rahimi took it upon himself to detonate several bombs in the NY/NJ area, injuring 31 “fellow Americans,” showing his gratitude for being tolerantly granted asylum from the conflict in Afghanistan back in 2000 when he was 12 years old.
Though Mayor Khan had a “sleepless night” with all the explosions, he commented to the news that these sorts of things were just “part and parcel of living in a big city” these days. Obviously, it’s not due to being so inclusive and tolerant that you’re welcoming in folks who want to kill you and folks who won’t stand up against the killers, so it’s just a standard feature of a big city, like taxi cabs and traffic.
Then at the end of January 2017 Mayor Khan declared that Britain ought to ban Trump from visiting on account of Trump’s attempted travel ban on folks from countries of known and serious terrorist threats to America. He had previously declared that Trump has an ignorant view of Islam, and added to his travel ban statements “Donald Trump and those around him think that western liberal values are incompatible with mainstream Islam – London has proved him wrong.”
Then on 22MAR2017 one Khalid Masood, (born Adrian Elms but changed his name after converting to Islam in 2009), voluntarily took it upon himself to wage “jihad in revenge against Western military action in Muslim countries in the Middle East” and drove a car down the sidewalk and into Westminster, leapt out and started stabbing folks. Even though Masood was devout enough to make his pilgrimage to Mecca in 2015, he apparently missed the bit about how it is the religion of peace and left 5 dead and 50 injured in an attack on the heart of his own country.
And thank goodness for all that gun control to prevent violence like this! California must be inspired.
Well, Mayor Khan, it’s “part and parcel of living in a big city” these days, and obviously Trump is ignorant about Islam for trying to stop the flow from only the most hostile and violent Muslim nations. London sure is proving Trump wrong about the compatibility of Islam and Western values. After all, CNN was more than happy to recently correct our understanding of history in America by explaining how Islam was a major part of America’s founding. (No, that is not a joke.) I guess we should all be grateful for the centuries of contributions Islam had been making to the American founders’ concept of “the rights of Englishmen,” which sparked the American Revolution, otherwise we wouldn’t have our great nation today.
Mayor Khan held a candlelight vigil in a show of solidarity and mourning and let folks like the deceased Khalid Masood know that London is not afraid. And CNN gushed over the event.
On May 22, London gets a break from the Religion of Peace when 22 year old Salman Abedi, a typical Brit born to two Sunni Muslim Libyan refugees, decided to show his gratitude to his fellow Britons for tolerantly and compassionately sheltering his parents from certain death in the peace-loving Middle East.
Neighbors had warned police for years about Albedi, but the local police knew better than to fall for that sort of race-baiting and wisely avoided no less than 5 attempts to make them look like hateful Islamophobes. After all, this young Brit had a giant Libyan or Iraqi flag flying on his house to proudly show his solidarity with his fellow Englishmen.
Salman decided to put his taxpayer-funded student loans to work and used them gain the skills and parts to build an advanced bomb. Apparently, he was upset about Americans bombing Muslims and decided to show everyone how wrong they were about the Religion of Peace by blowing up the concert of an American singer in Manchester, killing 23 fellow Englishmen and children and wounding 119 others, the biggest British demonstration of the Religion of Peace since 4 Muslims in 2005 coordinated some bus and train bombings to slay 52. (Three of those men were British-born sons of Pakistani immigrants to Britain, and the fourth was an immigrant from Jamaica.)
The Manchester Mayor held a vigil to show their solidarity in peace and love, and CNN gushed, and poetry was read, and then folks went and got memorial tattoos, and so those nasty not-really-Islamic terrorists were defeated without needing anything like that hateful Trump travel ban.
We’ve even got brave examples like this liberal Manchester victim, Martyn Hett, who less than a year earlier tweeted that Muslims are the real victims of this stuff. He joined the “Islam is not the problem” bandwagon, and even though he was slain by terrorists who were pretty sure they were devout Muslims doing the will of Allah, at least no one will be able to say Martyn was an Islamophobe.
So, if a knife-wielding not-truly-Islamic terrorist had driven a bus through the vigil in violation of gun control laws meant to reduce violence, would they hold another vigil for victims of the vigil to show how not-afraid they are?
But, as Mayor Khan of London said, “this is just part and parcel of living in a big city” these days. Nothing to do with all those refugees from Muslim countries that Trump is concerned about.
Now, just this past Saturday, three men drove a van through pedestrians at London bridge then got out and began stabbing people with 12 inch knives, despite all the gun control laws meant to prevent violence.
When the news said the attackers were men “of Mediterranean origin” my first thought was, “What – like Italian Roman Catholics? Like those guys in the Godfather movies?”
But the three men identified themselves as members of the Religion of Peace by yelling, “This is for Allah” as they stabbed folks.
So far, two attackers have been identified. We’ve got Khuram Shazad Butt, typical British man (born in Pakistan), and his Libyan buddy Rachid Redouane.
In the aftermath, Mayor Khan is applying the demonstrated winning strategy of holding another vigil of solidarity to show these inexplicably homicidal “fellow Britons” that London is not afraid of them (and so is presenting a target rich environment). After all, vigils have done a lot to stop this sort of violence so far, and Mayor Khan insists that “London is one of the safest global cities in the world.” I guess that’s true, if we’re comparing to global cities in the Middle Eastern countries like Syria, Libya, Iran, and Iraq, or perhaps the global cities in war-torn Africa. But since the leader of London says it’s safe, go ahead and bring the kids when you visit and don’t worry – he held a vigil so this thing is under control!
In the aftermath, the Metropolitan Police have issued guidance that should another one of these completely inexplicable attacks in the name of Peace-Loving-Allah occur, citizens are advised to run and hide and call for the police, (because only the police have guns).
Some recently released amateur video footage shows two brave British men in the example of their Empire-Building, WWII-winning, Anglo Saxon forefathers, doing exactly as police now advise. They were in the restaurant where the London Bridge attackers had just slashed up a woman while yelling, “This is for Allah.” One British man utters an expletive about Muslims (an understandable mistake, due to the attacker’s identifying actions) and his brave, liberal progressive fellow Brit rebukes him for his “Islamophobia.”
Further, the British Prime Minister has announced that they will be cracking down on free speech on the global internet in order to stop these unexplainable violent outbursts, even though they are “part and parcel of life in a big city.”
What Did We Learn?
So, looking to the example of Britain, if we want to avoid terrorist violence at home, a travel ban on the most violent and hostile Islamic countries is a terrible and bigoted strategy.
Instead, we should:
- put the travel-ban haterade down
- accept that this is just part and parcel of life in a big city
- accept that anyone one who desires to immigrate to your land or happens to be born on your dirt is just as much one of your people as those who fought the founding battles of your nation centuries before
- get rid of all guns
- have the government regulate all speech
- present target-rich environments in the form of solidarity vigils, a proven method to demoralize terrorists from trying anything else
- practice our run-and-hide and duck-and-cover
- check our Islamophobia
- depend on the police to save us with their guns if none of the above works
If this sounds like a good survival strategy for your community, you could end up like Martyn Hett: dead, but definitely not an intolerant bigot. And you could have a big city just as safe as London!
If those doesn’t sound like a good survival strategy, how about joining a community of patriots armed to the teeth who don’t tolerate hatred of America and the values of Western Civilization? Flee The City.
