Years from now there will be a new version of ‘Downton Abbey,’ only this one will be set in England, 2013. And instead of characters dying in your typical car accident to end the season (Matthew Crawley, we hardly knew ye!), they’ll die by the hands of radical Muslim psycho-nuts. In broad daylight.
Why do I say this? Because it happened. Today. And the people who have all but predicted beheadings in the streets of London were laughed at.
My favorite line of the day comes from the Associated Press:
Calling it “an appalling murder,” Cameron said there were “strong indications” it was an act of terrorism, and two other officials said there were signs the attack was motivated by radical Islam.
“Signs” the attack was motivated by radical Islam? What might those be? Was it the guys screaming “Allahu Akbar” or the fact that they were trying to behead their victim in the middle of the street? I’m not sure how “We swear by almighty Allah we will never stop fighting you,” can be interpreted any other way, although it might be called “workplace violence,” if it was said during a massacre at Fort Hood, Texas…
The 2005 London terrorist attacks should have been a wake up call for the world — but they weren’t. The clerics who now live off taxpayers while calling the cash they receive “Jihad Seeker’s Allowance” should send up red flags —but they won’t. Instead, if we fast-forward through history it seems increasingly plausible that more and more free men will wave the white flag of liberal moral relativism until one day they wake up and realize what’s been lost. …
[England’s] problem is that it let wave after wave of immigrants come in who despised everything it stood for. They disdainfully refer to Englishmen and non-believers as “kuffar” … they take the social safety net and openly discuss using it to strangle the society that provides it.
For that post I was told I was “scare mongering.” Do you know what scary is? It’s walking down the streets of London the day after a man was turned into mincemeat next to your favorite outdoor cafe, and then wondering if your own head will be bashed in with a meat cleaver.
Scary is knowing that when radical Muslims explode on the streets of London, it will take the police 25 minutes to arrive.
Police took so long to arrive at the scene that the killers casually paced up and down the street, their hands dripping with blood, making a series of pronouncements that were filmed by onlookers. …
“I was panicked and called the police but it took them so long to come. I think it was about 25 minutes. Why didn’t they come faster?
“I was scared at first but then just angry at how long it took,” [said a witness] …
[L]ocal police officers refused to approach the killers, instead waiting 20 minutes for an armed response team to arrive.
In the meantime, the terrorists calmly paced the street, waiting for police to confront them and encouraging bystanders to photograph and film them.
When seconds count, the British police will be there sometime before dinner. And then they might not have guns, so you’ll have to wait a little longer if you can survive that long.
This is what happens when a country is so “tolerant” that it tolerates those who seek to destroy it.
And to think, radio host Michael Savage —who I am not a fan of — is banned from entering England, but radical Islamic whack jobs get the red carpet (to match their bloody hands):
Britain on Tuesday published its first list of people barred from entering the country for allegedly fostering extremism or hatred, including Muslim extremists, a right-wing American radio host, an Israeli settler and jailed Russian gang members. …
Popular American talk-radio host, Michael Savage, who broadcasts from San Francisco and has called the Muslim holy book, the Quran, a “book of hate,” is on the list.
Hmmm. I guess chopping off heads in the name of Islam isn’t considered extreme in the United Kingdom these days, but criticizing Islam is.
Press the fast forward button in your mind and look at where England stands in 50 years. It’s going to get messy.
