I don't understand the quote: is he saying Trump's view of islam-as-violent would make muslims actually violent? How does alienating people make a place less safe? If that is his point, doesn't that technically mean by his logic that London is now less safe and therefore the muslims should be deported to keep london safe? And wouldn't that prove Trump right?

This peckerhead kebab running London has said, "Terrorism is just part of living in a major city." Well then explain the lack of jihad in Tokyo? In all European capitals until ... the kebabs showed up in force.

Send them packing. That's the kind thing to do, because when that's no longer an option, what follows is much, much worse.

thought it a bit odd that the Mayor of a city of a foreign country would negatively comment on the US elections, growing up in Chicago I never recall Mayor Daley 1 or 2 commenting on other countries elections, then I looked up the London Mayor's bio and it turns out he is the Chairman of the Fabian Society, coincidence I am sure

Nope, the Idea is that Europeans will want to hurt Muslims because there will be widespread fear. Basically Europeans would attack Muslins in Fear, and London will be less safe, because these attacks are the doing of extremists.

His logic is quite straight forward. It is just that it rests on the false premise that muslins have only noble intention in BritLand.

That's the impression I get when it comes to white liberals and their defenses of Islam. The Anglicans aren't exactly dangerous anymore, so just be nice to Kebab for the time being and eventually they too will start appointing religious leaders who are iffy as to whether or not God exists. Any arguments about the two not being quite the same will, of course, fall of deaf ears.

@Ezequiel

The problem is that the Libtards needed a lesson that Mosby has given me. Unwantedly I must say... They need to perceive the Kebabs as different, as a people that have their own identity and their own objectives as a nation then that of England or any other European nation. Their arrival in their lands mean they will soon want land and government for themselves, so say bye bye to your life as it is.

The problem is that they have jettisoned their Englishness. They have forgotten completely what is to be an Englishman so they simply appeal to the idea in their heads that they belong to the world! Who cares if they wanna come here, we live in a global society!

So England to these people, means just as much as Brazil means to you and Australia means to me. It is a land out there that I am not attached to, except maybe by curiosity.

If they woke up from this idea, they will soon see their err.

If Donald Trump's "ignorant view of Islam" saves the life of even ONE American, even a child, or prevents even one rape by the "refugees", then it is entirely correct and justified.
Muslims seems to think we will not defend ourselves and they are entirely "ignorant" on that score.....per the Lord High Mayor of London.

But virtue signalling, like lighting up Big Ben, will bring solidarity among British and those that can't assimilate? Seems more like it will encourage their behavior than anything. If the mayor was White this would be typical cuck behavior, but since he is Muslim it's typical "mainstream" Muslim behavior... deflect responsibility to those pointing out the actual problem.

Anonymous Eric the Red March 23, 2017 12:00 AM  

So the mohammedan mayor's unstated premise is that the least amount of criticism will make even the most moderate mohammedan lapse into Sudden Jihad Syndrome.

Fine, I can work with that. Let's pursue that line of thinking a bit further:

Leftists and their pet mohammedan spokesmen denounce even the tiniest hint of any valid criticism of islam as morally reprehensible. But by doing this, the left gives mohammedans an excuse to exercise their (already acknowledged) hair-trigger sensibilities, and therefore an excuse to react destructively to even the slightest negative criticism or situation that might affect them.

We can call this a climate of revenge in which terrorists are allowed to operate. First leftists forcibly import invaders into the country, then leftists create a climate of revenge in which the invaders feel justified in becoming terrorists.

Leftists are accessories to rape, murder, and terrorism. And all mohammedans obviously should be removed from Western societies, either peaceably or otherwise. QED.

Blogger Al Smith March 23, 2017 12:08 AM  

This has to be one of the most bizarre but common rationalizations on the left nowadays: Muslims are so many ticking time-bombs, so we must defuse them by importing millions more of them and making ourselves tiny minorities among the ticking time-bombs. If any of them go off, it is entirely you're fault for alienating the time-bombs.

Anonymous james@wpc March 23, 2017 12:10 AM  

Czar Nicolas I passed a law making the Jewish community responsible for the debts of bankrupt Jewish businessmen. Suddenly, as if by miracle, Jewish businessmen became much better at business and the bankruptcies all but ceased.

Perhaps a similar move on the Muslim communities making them responsible for all the costs (primary and secondary) resulting from terror attacks by their co-religionists might cause a similar miracle to occur.

While that is happening, the European populations need to disband the intel agencies mixed up in these attacks and remove politicians who are pro bombing Muslim countries and pro immigration.

He has a point - there are so many guns in America and anyone who wants one can get one, one way or another. It is well known that Islam, on the other hand, is a religion of peace, and Saudi Arabia is the home of Islam. Those who agree that America is unsafe due to widespread gun ownership by uncivilized white Christian men should be encouraged to seek sanctuary in the Arabian peninsula.

When the Irish and Italians arrived in America en masse, they didn't exactly get the warmest welcome. I'd imagine things back then were a lot more openly hostile towards them. Surely that treatment should have resulted in a reign of terror?

Today we have the government, corporations, mainstream media, academia etc. tripping over themselves to welcome the kebabs. We get rewarded with bombings and rape as daily headlines.

"And that is supposed to be an argument against kicking them all out?"

Apparently, if you keep importing Third World Muslims at a constant, or (preferably) an ever-increasing rate, their feelings will be assuaged somewhat, and they won't attack you quite as much. Perhaps it makes sense if you take the impossibility of kebab removalism as a first principle, and don't really look ahead more than a year or two? Even then, you have to be pretty slow on the uptake, or more concerned with signaling and the narrative than reality.

Damn. So that's what Sundance has been talking about for so long, with the black hats and white hats. They sat on it for two years? Nunez was just trying to get out in front of the release he knew was coming, of course.

Also notable-- the claim that FBI/ CIA were involved in manipulating election results in Florida in 2008. If true, this means that a either a Republican administration was working to throw an election to a Democrat candidate (so that the whole election was in some sense a sham), or that these organizations were working completely independently from the administration that was supposed to be in charge. Not good at all. Remember Farrakhan saying "Obama was SElected before he was Elected?

That's potentially a much bigger deal than Obama spying on Trump, which isn't that much more than routine political corruption/ dirty tricks, though at a high level.

The general public really doesn't know what to make of it. They sense that something big is going on, and they see hints of it in social media, but their mainstream talking heads keep telling them, "All is well, move along, nothing to see here." They know something doesn't add up, that they aren't getting the whole story -- hence the historically low trust in the media -- but they don't know whom to believe instead.

Conventional wisdom says if a story is true and important enough, it will eventually break out in the press, Watergate-style. That's not true, but that's what they're hoping for, to give them some clarity. In the meantime, it gives us an opportunity to have a real impact with people who know us in real life, by calmly laying out the basics and letting them know they're not crazy for thinking the media is lying to them.

@51 "At this point, does the general public even care about whistleblowers or Wikileaks or anything of that nature? They seem to greet everything with a sort of stolid apathy that is quite alarming."

When the "threat" becomes to great, many many people tip over into denial. They don't see a way to protect themselves, to stop or avoid the threat, to effectively DO anything about the threat -- so they shrug and carry on with their 'normal' lives.

Good description (and help with a 'cure')here: http://www.psandman.com/col/climate.htm
"Climate Change Risk Communication: The Problem of Psychological Denial"

"...
Then there's denial.

"Denial looks like apathy. In fact, denial actively masquerades as apathy; people in or near denial will tell you they're just not interested. But unlike apathy, denial is unconsciously motivated. If I'm really "just not interested" in your issue, that's apathy – your issue didn't make my list. If I can't bear to get interested, if the issue threatens my sense of how the world works or arouses emotions I cannot tolerate, that's denial.

"The distinction matters because the appropriate messaging for apathy and the appropriate messaging for denial are antithetical in crucial ways. If the diagnosis is apathy, the treatment is to get me interested, to arouse more concern. If the diagnosis is denial, trying to arouse more concern will backfire, propelling me more deeply into denial. The treatment for denial is to help me bear the concern I'm already feeling.

"But in other ways messaging aimed at apathy and messaging aimed at denial are compatible. A sense of futility often accompanies both apathy and denial. So persuading people that there are useful actions they can take works for both groups. Efficacy is common ground.
...
"The nature of journalism exacerbates the problem of low efficacy. The media tend to define their audience as, well, an audience: bystanders rather than players. What is sometimes called "mobilizing information" – information that would help the audience do something about an issue – is comparatively rare in hard news, relegated mostly to sidebars and features. (Decades ago when I was doing PR for activist groups, I used to try to persuade reporters to put my group's phone number into the story, so interested readers could more easily call and get involved. I rarely succeeded.) Gerhart Wiebe coined the phrase "the syndrome of well-informed futility" to describe this effect of modern journalism on citizenship. Instead of feeling a civic obligation to do something about issues, we feel a civic obligation to know about them.

It seenms unlikely that Bezos' purchase of WaPo, and Amazon's $600 million contract with the CIA for cloud computing services, which occurred around the same time, are entirely unrelated. Cloud computing services shared with multiple other agencies sounds less than ideal for keeping secrets. For spreading disinformation, though...

It may be worth mentioning that "terrorism" in the UK is hardly new, nor was it ever confined to Muslims.

The British fought Irish terrorism for a good many years, often successfully. The Republic of Ireland does exist and there remains a tenuous and shaky peace in Northern Ireland. They are not without experience. Out in the rest of the world, the British fought against Indian uprisings for centuries and in other colonies, there was also considerable experience. The Boer War practically bankrupted the British Empire, several years before WWI. In all of this, the British have actually learned a few things about terrorism and their defenses are not quite as restrained as the USA would be.

Blogger DonReynolds March 23, 2017 11:28 PM  

The American experience has been largely confined to the Indian Wars, with a few exceptions. They have experience dealing with border bandits along the Mexican border, Pancho Villia being the best known. They also had to deal with Puerto Rican Nationalists and the terror attacks on Washington, DC. The gangsters, moonshiners, and smugglers have never been considered terrorists.
