Once again, we find ourselves in the terrible position of having to offer prayers and condolences to the victims of yet another deadly ISIS-inspired attack on innocent civilians. It happened Saturday in London, where three men were shot dead by police after plowing a vehicle into pedestrians on London Bridge and going on a stabbing spree with long knives while reportedly shouting, “This is for Allah!” Coming shortly after the Manchester concert bombing, this is the third deadly radical Islamist terrorist attack in the UK in 80 days.
So far, all that leftist leaders have had to offer the increasingly bloodied, outraged and terrified public across Europe is mealy-mouthed platitudes and resigned acquiescence, saying that terrorist attacks are just something we have to learn to live with (and now you know why so many Europeans left Europe to move to America). Of course, they live in walled communities with 24/7 guards, so they don't have to suffer the dangerous consequencies of their own folly. But despite recent elections that show the spineless elite still have support for some inexplicable reason, the tide of anger against them is rising fast.
British Prime Minister Theresa May has been under fire for the government's weak-kneed, overly PC response to Islamic radicalism (can you imagine Margaret Thatcher putting up with this?) She’s facing a tough election, but unfortunately for British voters, there’s no candidate in the race who has a record of standing up to terrorism and the political correctness that protects it. It’s been reported that one of Saturday’s attackers, the son of Pakistani refugees, had been reported to the anti-terror police twice by former friends concerned about his radical Islamist views, and he was thrown out of his local mosque for clashing with the imam. Yet the authorities apparently did nothing.
Prime Minister May, sensing the end of public patience, declared, “There is, to be frank, far too much tolerance of extremism in our country.” (Note that she still can’t bring herself to say what they’re extreme about. Are they quilting fanatics?) She went on, “Enough is enough...We cannot and must not pretend that things can continue as they are.” She called for Britain to become “far more robust” in identifying and eradicating extremism. That’s encouraging, but Britons already identified this particular extremist, and the government did nothing until he started stabbing people. At least in this case, people tried to prevent disaster: in many instances, liberal governments urge citizens to speak up if they see anything suspicious, then shame them as Islamophobes if they do.
The larger problem all across Europe is that elected leaders who've been brainwashed by their liberal teachers into hating their own culture and blaming Western civilization for all the world’s ills. They have such blind faith in the religion of multi-culturalism that they would rather see their own people die than admit that certain radical religious and cultural beliefs are simply not compatible with modern, liberal society. They thought that if they threw open their borders, the masses that flowed in would be grateful to liberals and vote to keep them in power, and never considered that some might be coming in to conquer what they see as weak, sinful societies, not assimilate into them. Many of Europe’s current leaders are like people who fired the shepherds, threw away the shotgun and waved the wolves into their homes, and now they can’t figure out why their family members keep disappearing.
