Theresa May wants to censor the internet

Theresa May: ‘We Must Heavily Regulate The Internet’
That’ll do it.  The terrorists  must be shaking in their boots.

If the current trend in Islamic terror attacks continues, candlelit vigils will soon be the number one cause of global warming.

Theresa May with minder

Enough is enough. Read my response to last night’s brutal terror attack: 

I read it. Here’s what I found:

(The terrorists) are bound together by the single, evil ideology of Islamist extremism that preaches hatred, sows division, and promotes sectarianism.

I’m holding my nose already. Wait for it:

It is an ideology that claims our Western values of freedom, democracy and human rights are incompatible with the religion of Islam.

That’s what they believe and that’s where they are right.

It is an ideology that is a perversion of Islam and a perversion of the truth.

No, Theresa. No perversion to see here. These terrorists are following the true Islam. You are the lying perverter here. But now it comes. Theresa May wants to censor the internet:

…..we cannot allow this ideology the safe space it needs to breed. Yet that is precisely what the internet – and the big companies that provide internet-based services – provide.

We need to work with allied, democratic governments to reach international agreements that regulate cyberspace to prevent the spread of extremism and terrorist planning. And we need to do everything we can at home to reduce the risks of extremism online.

Third, while we need to deprive the extremists of their safe spaces online, we must not forget about the safe spaces that continue to exist in the real world.

Yes, that means taking military action to destroy ISIS in Iraq and Syria. But it also means taking action here at home. While we have made significant progress in recent years, there is – to be frank – far too much tolerance of extremism in our country. (Do read on. Here’s the link.) 


London, Manchester, Berlin, Nice, Paris etc it will all happen again and again until we acknowledge that Islam is the problem and fight back.

At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is “no reason to be alarmed!”

RUN and hide. That was the advice of Metropolitan Police to Londoners as the latest terror attack unfolded in the city. Running to safety is “a better option than to surrender or negotiate”, the police warned.

“If there’s nowhere to go, then hide. Turn your phone to silent and turn off vibrate. Barricade yourself in if you can …”

It sounds utterly hopeless, but what else can the ordinary citizen do when faced with jihadis hellbent on causing maximum carnage and willing to die for their sick cause? Less than a week since the UK lowered the terror threat level from “critical” to “severe”, three cowards in a white van went on a murderous rampage mowing down pedestrians on London Bridge.

The terrorists armed with large knives — and wearing what looked like explosive vests that turned out to be fakes — then exited the van and proceeded to indiscriminately stab bystanders in Borough Market.

They were shot dead within 10 minutes but not before they had caused untold misery to innocent people enjoying a night out.

Witnesses told news networks of horrific brutality. One told of seeing victims with their throats cut, another spoke of seeing a girl stabbed in the chest. There were reports of unarmed police running away from the offenders and confirmation that one officer had sustained stab wounds.

The latest incident came less than two weeks after the Manchester suicide bombing that killed 22 and left dozens more seriously injured, and just over 10 weeks after the Westminster terror attack that killed five and left more than 40 injured.

The death toll from yesterday’s attack is at least seven with more than 30 injured. I haven’t bothered to count the terrorists in any of the death tallies — they are unworthy of having their lives counted along their innocent victims.

How many acts of terror will we endure before there’s a new approach? We are slowly becoming desensitised to this horror: the now familiar routine of Islamist violence followed by prayers and illumination of landmarks, praise of first responders and calls for “togetherness” and not “letting the terrorists win” will not avert another disaster.

Empty platitudes have gone from “religion of peace” nonsense to “diversity is our strength” asininity. But the West’s so-called defiance looks a lot like cowardice when all you’re doing is denying reality, silencing debate and obstructing those who want greater action to keep us safe from further attacks.

We’ve tried the approach of the appeasers, apologists and factphobic “terror has no religion” brigade who characterise any criticism of Islam as Islamophobia that will lead to more Muslims being radicalised. But how can criticism of Islam create more terrorists if Islam has nothing to do with terror?

It’s time to consider a new strategy, one that doesn’t seek to minimise the threat or conceal the ideology behind incidence of terror around the world. In practical terms, that means tougher border-protection policies, more resources devoted to monitor those on watch lists and strengthening laws to make it easier to prosecute returned jihadis and those who financially support them.

Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the Westminster and Manchester attacks but there has been no claim on this latest atrocity, although it fits the modus operandi of the group’s radicalised army of “lone wolves”.

The terror group has called on its followers to use any means possible, including cars and knives, to kill the “infidels”.

“Muslim brothers in Europe who can’t reach the Islamic State lands, attack them in their homes, their markets, their roads and their forums,” IS told disciples.

“Your targeting of the so-called innocents and civilians is beloved by us and the most effective, so go forth and may you get a great reward or martyrdom in Ramadan.”

The bloodshed during Ramadan has seen deadly attacks in Kabul and Baghdad, and the week before the holy month there was the Manchester attack as well as an IS bombing in Indonesia and uprising in the Philippines.

Last year, there was a spate of Islamist attacks during Ramadan including in the US, France, the Philippines, Lebanon, Jordan, Turkey, Yemen, Bangladesh, Saudi Arabia and Jordan. Their aim is to turn once-safe cities into guerilla warzones, where children attending concerts and diners enjoying a night out are victims. It’s what Israelis have lived with for decades.

It’s clear why the jihadists are attacking us; they are at pains to tell us and yet some refuse to listen.

It’s the same reason they attack Muslims who are not Muslim enough or the wrong type of Muslim. Shias are considered infidels and a favourite target of Islamist terrorists who are overwhelmingly Sunni Muslims.

And yet no matter how loudly and proudly terrorists proclaim their motives, there are some who want to blame the West, marginalisation, mental illness, anything but the root cause of worldwide terror; Islamism.

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull did not mince his words in calling Islamist terror real and vowing to find and destroy them.

We can only hope the rhetoric is followed by tough action.

As it stands, only two returned jihadists have been prosecuted, the remainder walk free with counter-terrorism authorities unable to prosecute them because of the difficulty of obtaining evidence from Syrian and Iraqi authorities.

  1. Muslim + Koran = Jihad. Terror Attacks + Muslim Invasion of West = Jihad. Therefore, solving the equation: Muslim = Jihad. I never was any good at algebra but even I can join those dots. Why can the establishment not? Islam is no longer an unknown. So the UK government will redouble its efforts to do twice as much of the failed policy so that even more resources are wasted and even more people suffer for no good reason. Join the dots, people………

  2. Hehe! I liked your comments! Great ones. Theresa May, as well as the rest of the European leaders, except of course for Orban and a couple of others, are a bunch of islamophiles. They suck up to the most deadly ideology the planet has ever seen!

    I hope Europe wakes up and starts deporting moslems by the millions soon. Only severe action can stop their deadly behavior.

    1. Theresa May says “far too much tolerance of extremism in our country,” and that “when it comes to taking on extremism and terrorism things need to change.” Then she repeats the same false and failed analysis, that the jihad “is a perversion of Islam.” Her refusal to identify the motivating ideology behind these jihad attacks means that she will never confront this enemy properly, and never deal with the real source of the incitement to violence. And so for all her tough talk, she is doomed to failure.

      1. Dajjal just took down this Dhim Bint Theresa May, here:

        My take on her rant (you ask)?

        May explains that Our “Pluralistic values” (aka “diversity;” “tolerance of evil,” and “multi-culturalism”) are better than theirs?!


        There is only ONE Law and one “culture” which have “value” and that’s the Golden Rule and “Negative” rights! Any and all other “pluralistic” (aka “positivist”) rights ARE CRIMES and embrace the “diverse multiplicity” of the almost infinite synonyms and symptoms of NOT agreeing to obey that one simple Golden-Rule-based “social contract” principle of “Do Not Attack First!” Islam posits allah attacks both first, by making infidels to enrage himself, and then he counter-attacks himself second by making muslims to kill them all off for him!
