Shortly after a bomb was successfully detonated in lower Manhatten last September and another bomb was found a few blocks away, Sadiq Kahn – the newly elected Muslim mayor of London – tried to normalize the attack by explaining that events like this are just part of living in a big city.
According to the Daily Mail,
The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has said that living with terror attacks – like the one that hit New York at the weekend – is ‘part and parcel of living in a big city’.
Mr Khan told the Evening Standard: ‘It is a reality I’m afraid that London, New York, other major cities around the world have got to be prepared for these sorts of things.
‘That means being vigilant, having a police force that is in touch with communities, it means the security services being ready, but also it means exchanging ideas and best practice.’
While the attacks like the one the world witnessed yesterday in London are somewhat rare, they shouldn’t be occurring at all. The real issue is the fact that so many are obsessed with remaining politically correct when it comes to calling out radical Islamic terror. Additionally, the average person is terrified at the mere thought of advocating a more strict vetting policy when it comes to the importing of refugees from middle eastern countries!
Then we have politicians like Sadiq Kahn who are essentially trying to normalize attacks like this by explaining them away as incidents we just have to live with. It’s ironic though that they get away with this type of rhetoric considering it will never be their loved ones in danger of being blown up on a bus or beheaded walking down the street. They themselves are never at risk, but then again that’s how many politicians like to govern today, they claim to care about the people all the while they themselves are never subjected to what it is they enforce on the citizenry.
THIS type of mentality is exactly why Donald Trump was elected President of the United States this past November! The American people are tired of being told by politicians who sit in their ivory towers how we are to live our lives while the socialists, I mean politicians, are never subjected to the laws, policies, and regulations they draw up.
Additionally, Donald Trump spoke about securing our borders, enforcing the rule of law, and vetting those coming here from countries with ties to terrorism.
