The mainstream media has essentially tried to vilify President Donald Trump for his criticism of Muslim London Mayor Sadiq Khan's reserved response to Islamic terrorism that has continuously rocked the British city.
▪ Trump calls Mayor Sadiq Khan's response to London terrorist attack 'pathetic'
▪ Trump renews feud with London mayor over terror attack
▪ US mayors back Sadiq Khan in Donald Trump Twitter row
▪ After Britain Attack, Trump Feuds With London Mayor
▪ Sadiq Khan mocks Donald Trump's bizarre feud with him
▪ Pres. Trump Attacks London Mayor For "Political Correctness" In Response To London Terror Attack
Here's Khan's statement:
"Just like terrorists are constantly evolving, finding new ways to disrupt us, attack us, the police and experts and all of us are finding new ways to keep us safe. Londoners will see an increased police presence today and over the course of the next few days - no reason to be alarmed. One of the things police and all of us need to do is make sure we're as safe as we possibly can be. I'm reassured that we are one of the safest global cities in the world, if not the safest global city in the world. But we always evolve and review ways to make sure we remain as safe as we possibly can."
Safest global city? Really? With the recent record of terrorist attacks? What cities is he comparing London to? Damascus, Syria? Aleppo?
Deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said at Monday's press briefing, "I don't see that the president is picking a fight with the mayor of London at all. I think, again, the president's point is something he said frankly back almost two years now -- a year and a half ago -- when the president talked about how we have to be more committed to national security. One of the reasons we have the travel ban here through that executive order is a focus on national security. That was the point he was trying to make."
Let's review the Trump Tweets the leftist media claims are attacks against the poor, defenseless Muslim mayor of London, shall we?
President Trump recognizes that the effort to resolve terrorism is not more police, gun control, cracking down on the local population, or us "evolving" to become more accustomed to a world filled with terrorism. The way to combat terrorism is to address it at its source. Islam. In short, stop letting Muslims into our countries.
Is that a sign of Islamophobia? A phobia is an irrational fear of something, and trust me, my fear of the Islamic jihad is very rational.
Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro released the map below to show how terrorism is occurring where the refugees from the Middle East have settled. Make a special note of Poland, who has a strict no-refugee policy, and also has no terrorist attacks.
The attack being alleged by Donald Trump against Mayor Khan is not a case of Donald Trump trying to pick on the London Mayor, for President Trump was simply pointing out the obvious. Sadiq Khan took it as an attack because he's Muslim, and he is trying to hide the fact that he welcomes Islamist terror attacks, or, if he is not fond of them, he knows that he, and Islam, will eventually benefit from the terrorism. Remember, along with violence, "deception" is an important part of the Islamic jihad. The media is attacking Trump and accusing him of attacking the London Mayor because it screws with their narrative when someone like Trump points out the obvious, and Trump is recognizing that the Muslim mayor of London is doing what Muslims do. . . he is using deception to hide his true position regarding the connection of Islam to terrorism.
Khan is so upset about being called out by the President of the United States, that he is actually the one attacking Trump, calling for Britain to cancel a planned state visit by Donald Trump in the near future. The accusation that Trump is attacking him is a case of projection.
Besides, since when does a lowly mayor think he has a say on national issues in his country? He's a tiny little puppet on the hand of Islam. Then again, based on what has been said, I am beginning to think a few puppet strings may be over Prime Minister Theresa May's head, too.
You heard what she said, right?
Prime Minister May, in her response to the London Bridge attack said of the ideology behind the attacks, and of her own country's system of values, "They are bound together by the single, evil ideology of Islamist extremism that preaches hatred, sows division, and promotes sectarianism. It is an ideology that claims our Western values of freedom, democracy and human rights are incompatible with the religion of Islam. It is an ideology that is a perversion of Islam and a perversion of the truth.
"Defeating this ideology is one of the great challenges of our time. But it cannot be defeated through military intervention alone. It will not be defeated through the maintenance of a permanent, defensive counter-terrorism operation, however skillful its leaders and practitioners. It will only be defeated when we turn people’s minds away from this violence – and make them understand that our values – pluralistic, British values – are superior to anything offered by the preachers and supporters of hate."
First, like most politicians, she sounds like she's bought into the false narrative that the jihadists are a small group of people who have hijacked the religion of peace. Deception and violence is not a perversion of Islam. It is who and what Islam is all about.
All Muslims benefit from terrorism.
The second thing that caught my attention was the hypocrisy of what she said. The liberal left pluralistic humanistic multicultural diverse socialists have been screaming at us that no culture or society is above any other. Americans have been attacked for their use of the word "exceptionalism" (sadly, most of those attacks came from America's own President Barack Obama). Yet, now May says, "claims our Western values of freedom, democracy and human rights are incompatible with the religion of Islam...make them understand that our values – pluralistic, British values – are superior to anything offered by the preachers and supporters of hate."
I thought it was hateful and inconsiderate to believe one's values are superior to anyone else's?
Perhaps, that only applies to Americans, Christians, and Israel - all of which the left believes are arrogant and believes they are above everyone else, making them hateful and bigoted and. . .
Except, we haven't been hearing about Christian or Jewish suicide bombers, slashers, or terrorists. And the response to that is usually the Crusaders. . . which it turns out was a response to 400 years of Muslim invasions.
