On Fox and Friends Weekend, the Brexit campaigner criticised Mr. Khan for telling Londoners “not to be alarmed” saying:
“I understand the mayor wishing to not spread panic but what I would like to hear is him say: ‘As the first Muslim mayor of London, I am going to do all I can to work with the Muslim community to drive out the extremist preachers from our mosques. To do all we can to stop radicalisation happening in schools and in prisons.’
“And I did not hear a single word of that,” the former UKIP party leader said.
Asked whether he concurred with U.S. President Donald Trump’s assessment that political correctness was a contributing problem to the fight against Islamic terrorism, Mr. Farage pointed to the child sex abuse scandals in Rotherham and Rochdale, saying:
“We can talk about terrorism but equally please don’t forget what happened to all those young underaged girls in our big northern cities, molested, raped, on an industrial scale and yet we did nothing about it for fear of causing offence.
“For fear of the thought of being considered racists with a particular part of the Muslim community.
“So I’m afraid we’ve been absolutely hidebound in this country by political correctness.
“I’m afraid that one of those people who simply hasn’t done enough is Theresa May. She was the one who was for six years our home secretary. She was in charge of homeland security.
“Today she stood on the steps of Downing Street and said: ‘Enough is enough‘.
Well, I hope she actually means it.”
“There can be no justification for the acts of these terrorists and I am quite clear that we will never let them win. My message to Londoners and visitors to our great city is to be calm and vigilant today. You will see an increased police presence today, including armed officers and uniformed officers. There is no reason to be alarmed by this. We are the safest global city in the world. You saw last night as a consequence of our planning, our preparation, the rehearsals that take place, the swift response from the emergency services tackling the terrorists and also helping the injured.”
The UK has experienced so many recent attacks and he says London is the safest global city. Somehow I don’t think that’s much comfort to the victims and their families today.
This hollow appeal from London’s sanctimonious mayor to go on with normal life only makes sense if the government is taking all possible steps to protect the security of the citizens. Clearly they are not, when they recently admitted the number of terrorists in the UK is nearer to 23,000 instead of the 3,000 they stated earlier. They also admitted that a shortage of manpower limits them to investigating only 500 of them.
“It is an ideology that claims our Western values of freedom, democracy and human rights are incompatible with the religion of Islam. It is an ideology that is a perversion of Islam and a perversion of the truth.
Defeating this ideology is one of the great challenges of our time, but it cannot be defeated by military intervention alone. It will not be defeated by the maintenance of a permanent defensive counter-terrorism operation, however skillful its leaders and practitioners. It will only be defeated when we turn people’s minds away from this violence and make them understand that our values – pluralistic British values – are superior to anything offered by the preachers and supporters of hate.”
PM May, President Trump and numerous other leaders are still trotting out the PC version of radical Islamic terrorists being the exception to the religion while pretending that the peaceful muslims are the genuine ones.
We can never hope to defeat this if we don’t admit the truth. Those radicals are the ones who are truly following the Koran. The peaceful muslims will only remain so until it is demanded from them to do otherwise. The only way to defeat terrorism is to forcefully drive them back to the Middle East. They don’t assimilate, they invade.
