London Again

London was attacked again last night. Three creatures ran down people on London Bridge then attacked a market with knives. They were attacked by people at the scene and killed by police within ten minutes.

UK politicians are, commendably, refraining from panic and refusing to do the terrorists’ work for them. I’ll post more as events warrant.

    But some are still making the case that Trump pulling the US out of the Paris accord is today’s imminent threat to humanity.

    Evil people, following an evil dogma, killing the plebes going about their business on the streets of welfare state progressive countries that opened their doors to these people, is just par for the course.  Not a big deal, and these plebes should just shrug that stuff off and defend more of these sorts of people being brought in. That these elites telling the plebes to just suck it up have shown their hand when they act as if the only threat to humanity is that the US won’t foot the bill for their gravy train anymore, should tell the common guy what the real priority is with our ruling class.

    And that’s the distinction that needs to be hammered home when things like this happen.

    Trump, meanwhile, does exactly what terrorists want – he reacted impulsively by stoking panic and fear, being indiscreet with details of the event, and sought to capitalise on it to advocate for one of his more polarising policies and to advance a personal feud (via blatant misrepresentation).
    The people of London and the UK most certainly know that your leader is not with them. What a fucking shit heel.

    What alternate universe do you live in where the problem is Trump and not the fucking people killing people CM? I mean are there no dead corpses people like you will not use for a photo op to blame Trump for something? Seriously man.. You need therapy.

    You’re the one linking this to climate change and welfare states. What alternate universe do you live in where the problem isn’t the fucking people killing people, Alex? I mean are there no dead corpses you will not use to copy and paste the same old tired ideologically nutty garbage? Seriously man.. You need therapy.

    Interesting piece. Second generation and converts are the most common identifiers,http://www.haaretz.com/world-news/europe/1.791954

    Thanks CM – that’s an excellent article. This was the key paragraph:

    Roy argues that about 70 percent of these young people have scant knowledge of Islam, and suggests they are “radical” before even choosing Islam. He dubs them “born again Muslims” who lead libertine lives before their sudden conversion to violent fundamentalism.

    I am sure Alex will ignore it as he does with any evidence that does not fit with his worldview.
