“Terrorism will not divide us or change our way of life!”, the Politicians said, as they slowly divided us and changed our way of life.
Please remember the Muslim community are the real victims here.
Again: the primary concern seems to be about people who tell the truth about Islam (which isn’t a race), and not about our murdered children.
Which is more important – not hurting Muslims’ feelings, or our children being blown up?
Never forget the wise words coming from the mayor of Londonistan, Sadiq Khan:
With all these ISIS terrorists running around blowing kids up, thank God police are investigating offensive tweets:
Britain can tolerate the massacre of children without taking action. But it will not tolerate hate.–Katie Hopkins
Metropolitan Police are investigating Twitter user (Katie Hopkins) who spoke out against the Manchester attack.
Police have already opened one investigating into Mail Online columnist Katie Hopkins after she said Western men need to “demand action” in response to the terrorist nail bomb attack which targeted children leaving an Ariana Grande concert.
One Twitter user, Dbev007, complained about her tweet to police, claiming it “incited racial hatred” despite her never mentioning anything about race or even Islam, which isn’t even a race to begin with.
Manchester Chief Constable of GMP “we understand feelings are raw…but we will not tolerate hate crime.”
Fake News from the Cosmopolitan, helpful taxi driver was not Muslim but Sikh:
@Cosmopolitan – why did you describe this guy as a Muslim when you knew he was a Sikh?
“We’re not actually equipped to do that much at all, other than to try to carry on, to not allow ourselves to be terrorised, to stop living our lives.”
In reality, there is plenty that we can do. We can stop lying to ourselves and to each other about what is happening and why. We can stop electing politicians who perpetuate the policies that have gotten us into this fix. We can call the political and media elites to account and demand that they drop the politically correct obfuscation and speak honestly about the motivating ideology, nature and magnitude of this threat. And much more. But the Independent would rather keep you ignorant and complacent in the face of what is happening and what is to come. Just relax. And as the jihad machete slices through your own neck, just repeat to yourself, “At least I was never racist or Islamophobic.”
“There’s only one way Britain should respond to attacks such as Manchester. That is by carrying on exactly as before,” by Andrew Buncombe (oh, yes indeed, Buncombe it is), reporting from a safe distance in New York, Independent, May 23, 2017:
…Prime Minister Theresa May is to confer with Britain’s top security committee – a so-called Cobra meeting – on Tuesday morning. Her hope, and all of those who meet with her in the shadows of Whitehall, will be that this was a one-off incident, not the start of something even more horrible.
As Jeremey Corbyn offered his condolences, May said she was suspending her election campaign to deal with what had transpired. That is only right and correct.
But if the intention of those who commit acts of terror is to disrupt ordinary life, than the only possible response is not to let that happen. That is not to say police should not track down who was responsible for such vile murder. That is not to say the security services should step up their efforts to do all they can to stop a repeat of such slaughter.
Nor is it about what lots of Britons like to call the Dunkirk spirit, or about showing a stiff upper lip.
Rather, it is a merely an assessment of the options that are available to us, the ordinary people, those without superhuman powers.
We’re not actually equipped to do that much at all, other than to try to carry on, to not allow ourselves to be terrorised, to stop living our lives. And that means means continuing with the general election May felt obliged to call, or keep on buying tickets to see the likes of Ariana Grande.
If the horror that played out in the aftermath of the 23-year-old singer’s concert inspires us all to do that, then she would indeed deserve the name dangerous woman.
