The blood won't wash off Mayor Khan't's hands so easily

In response to a jihadi attack Wednesday afternoon that occurred by the Houses of Parliament in Westminster and which took the lives of six people, five having been run over by the assailant's vehicle and the sixth, a policeman, fatally stabbed, London mayor Sadiq Khan said:
Today London suffered a horrific attack near Parliament Square which we are treating as a terror attack. My heart goes out to those who have lost loved ones and to everyone who has been affected. I want to express my gratitude, on behalf of all Londoners, to the police and emergency services who have shown tremendous bravery in exceptionally difficult circumstances. I want to reassure all Londoners, and all our visitors, not to be alarmed. Our city remains one of the safest in the world. London is the greatest city in the world and we stand together in the face of those who seek to harm us and destroy our way of life. We always have and we always will. Londoners will never be cowed by terrorism.
It's supposedly being treated as a terror attack, but Khan, like his hero Barack Hussein Obama, won't say which kind of terror. Apparently, that's not important. Let's just pretend the psychopath was named McFlaherty, right? Perhaps the reïncarnated souls of Sacco and Venzetti bringing their anarcho-terror to ole London Towne? The killer's name is actually Khalid Masood, but never mind. There are no lessons to be learned from this, don'tcha know.
When is the Bill banning vehicles due to be pushed through Parliament? After all, why are these dangerous items in the hands of the average slob? We have to trust our government to tell us what's best for us, you know? Cars and trucks are the new guns and certainly they can take out even more people than firearms, if you intend to use them for such a purpose, Rambo-style machine guns being perhaps the only exception. The "truck attack" in Nice last summer certainly demonstrated that; the jihadist behind the wheel saw no need to even touch the ammo that police later found in the truck.
You don't have to have a reason behind terror, just say you stand united with "the people" against it. Until it happens again and you have to shuffle the words of your speech around so you can act as though you have something new to say about a problem that has become very ingrained and familiar to everyone.
The best part? Khan's words, which I'm somehow supposed to find inspiring and comforting, came (1) via a recorded video message and (2) ninety minutes late. The deaths were confirmed by the authorities at 6 p.m. and Khan did not say a word to the public until his video, released at 7:30. Boris Johnson would have been at the scene post-haste and talking into as many microphones and cameras as he could have directed at him.
One Twitter user raged, "Where the f*** has our Mayor @SadiqKhan been since the Westminster attack? All we get is a short s****y note. Where is the moron?" Columnist and media personality Katie Hopkins, the scourge of the liberal luvvies and do-gooders, said it best: "Sadiq Kahn't. If you are penning some naff missive about a proud city, standing together, united by shared values, think again, son." (For those not familiar with Brit-speak, "naff" means clichéd or cheesy.)
But, alas and alack, terrorism is simply part and parcel of living in a big city, according to the esteemed mayor. He actually said this. Khan's ninety minutes of what was aptly described as "deafening silence" says it all, better than words could ever convey.
Mr. Khan, let me assure you that under your tenure, I'm no Londoner. I just live here. If you decide someday that you intend to be a leader of the open sewer of humanity that is this city, and which you expect to be "united against terror," maybe I'll change my mind. Maybe. Stop grooming the deadbeats with the latest round of perks that my tax money will pay for and ruling as if advertisements featuring fit, young women are a threat to us all. Perhaps then, sir, I would consider you less the lamentable little joke that I currently do.


Come to think of it, how about we do let this terrorism dictate our lives? How about the great majority just stay home and visitor numbers decline? When the tourist industry and the hospitality services geared toward foreigners and residents alike start to suffer, maybe then we'll see some real action toward combating terror take place. Gotta hit the powers-that-be where it hurts.
Perhaps once we assert our right to govern as a nation in two years' time, independent of a bureaucratic federalist nightmare, a.k.a. the European Union, we can have our own travel ban, to figure out what the hell's going on with our no doubt broken immigration system and launch a thorough investigation of our border control agency. While we're at it, let's also reform the prison governing system so we can start cracking down on the radicalism behind penitentiary walls across the country. Just a thought and, golly gee wilikers, it might just work. It sure as hell hasn't ever been tried.
So, forgive me, but I have no use for words about being united and fighting terror together. Can you assure me that such sentiment will ensure that certain heads will be cracked, certain speech and the places where it gets disseminated closely surveilled, and security services monitor the right people instead of the average citizen? Can we for once see the blood of the monsters among us flow and not that of innocent people? The answer is no, is it not? It wouldn't be politically correct and it would upset our overlords who think keeping Britain British is a massive human rights violation. Just ask our former human rights lawyer of a mayor.
No keep calm and carry on bullshit for me, thanks. I'm done.


Addendum

As six people have gone to their graves via an Islamofascist terrorist attack, including an American man who was here with his wife supposedly taking the trip of a lifetime, Prime Minister Theresa May opined before the Commons that we cannot use the words "Islamic terrorism" to describe the carnage that took place near Parliament Square Wednesday afternoon. The jihadist rammed some people so hard with his car that they were launched over the bridge and into the strong current of the Thames River. And our so-called leadership is more concerned with not offending Muslim sentiments.
MP Michael Tomlinson asked May, "Will the Prime Minister agree with me that what happened was not Islamic, just as the murder of Airey Neave was not Christian, and that in fact both are perversions of religion?"
"I absolutely agree, and it is wrong to describe this as 'Islamic terrorism'. It is 'Islamist terrorism,' it is a perversion of a great faith."
Islamic and Islamist, I do agree, have slightly different meanings. For instance, Turkey is an Islamic country; its leader, Recep Erdoğan, is an Islamist. But aren't we now just grabbing at straws to keep on the globalist-friendly, politically correct track?
Ensuring people's safety by correctly identifying the source and inspiration for terrorism is not exactly requesting Kristallnacht v 2.0, now is it? But we cannot fight terrorism as a united people if we refuse to regard it for what it is, what it engenders, what it entails—and why it so indiscriminately slaughters innocent people. How can we do this if we can't give it an accurate designation?
Prime Minister, I don't know if you've heard, but Barry O. is no longer in office. Were you tripping balls when you were stood next to President Trump a month ago, or what? It's okay, you don't have to worry about offending the Dear Leader, he's too busy golfing (and covering his skinny ass regarding his illegal surveillance of American citizens), free from the shackles of having to pretend to care about America and her people, to fret about what you call religiously inspired mass murder. He wouldn't approve, but that's not your problem, ma'am.
I have praised May for sticking to her guns in triggering Brexit, remarkable given that she had been in the Remain camp. In this, she has been a resolute and bullish voice for the people. Some pundits have likened her to Margaret Thatcher. I can tell you, Thatcher would not have stood for appeasing the Muslim community in the wake of an ISLAMIC terror attack.
I wasn't expecting Churchill. Chrissakes, Wat Tyler would have been just fine. Any kind of display of leadership on the side of the average Brit would have been nice.
But alas, May is obviously bought and paid for by our suicidal lords temporal after all. With this pathetic show in Parliament, she has given the game away.
