Actual headline

London Mayor Implements 'Knife Control.' Ben Shapiro Responds With Perfect Tweet. Internet Melts Down.

Conservatives. It's astonishing how easy it is for their enemies to lead them around by the nose.

Media: Here are your opinion leaders. You will follow them!
Conservatives: Hah! That Ben Shapiro, he's sharp as a tack, he is! He sure showed those cheese-eating surrender monkeys!

This very important news story about Ben Shapiro's Twitter prowess by James Barrett presently has 39.3k views. Keep that in mind when you find yourself chortling about how stupid liberals are.

On an almost completely unrelated note, it is even more amusing to see that the Pakistani mayor of London actually implemented a policy that had hitherto been a joke among the pro-gun crowd. Is it time to start the National Butterknife Association?

Motto: Knives don't kill people. People kill people.

On the plus side, the knife controllers won't have to pry any knives out of cold dead hands, since the butter tends to make them a little more slippery.

@5- The patently false "never a reason" comment confused me. I know we accept casual lies from politicians all the time, but knives have obvious enough uses that you'd think people would laugh at the guy.

Then again, it's Big City London, and most of the population might not be able to distinguish one side of a screwdriver from the other.

I don't live in the sticks, but I carry knives. Mayor Paki might be surprised how many uses one can come up with for them.

No, Trump is bulletproof.

They are trying to make Trump corking a disease-riddled crack whore and then paying her off look 'plausible' enough to separate him from his very large bible-belt support.

When The God-Emporer's approval hit 60%, they got desperate and are doing everything possible to try and stop the storm before the mids. This sort of thing is what the left DOES. Mueller probably got a picture of Ann and the kids in the mail framed by a sniper scope saying "You know what to do."

I figure Trump is just giving him a little more rope.

Middle East will be front and center in the near future as Iran begins to push after locking down the nuke. Same thing happened when Pakistan nuked up - they started a fight with India (luckily this fizzled out, but the warning was still heard).

Saudi prince visiting the west likely had closed door meetings in which commitments were made (tied into Saudi wealth and oil supply), and Israel is starting to provoke Iran via Syria (reports today that the missiles hitting the Syrian base were Israeli.

I doubt this is the 'final act' but is a precursor.

Muslims outside of this region have either Sunni or Shia loyalties and will attempt to drag their host nations into the above conflict.

I really cannot think of a single benefit to Islam having any influence or power anywhere.

@21 Not sure what Trump's personal lawyer or even Stormy Daniels has to do with muh Russia collusion.

That's why Mueller is the high priced DOJ lawyer while you and I are just commenters on a blog. It all goes back Wickard v. Filburn, a Supreme Court case of a Kansas wheat farmer growing more wheat that the government gave him permission to grow. The Court ruled that the farmer had impermissibly engaged in interstate commerce by depressing the price of wheat.

What does this have to do with Trump and muh Russia? By engaging in commerce with domestic whores, Trump has impermissibly reduced the prices of Russian whores.

Blogger Eskyman April 09, 2018 5:41 PM  

We've all heard that London now has a higher murder rate than New York, though the UK has banned guns for a long time and now is banning knives too.

This is actually a bigger deal than it appears, because what the "news" doesn't say is that the murder rate is calculated much differently in the UK than it is in America. In the UK, the number of murders depends on how many people were convicted of the crime of murder; just having a dead body doesn't add it to the total until someone is convicted in a court of law. In the USA, murders are counted by the number of homicides, not whether someone is convicted of any crime. The USA has a lot of murders (according to one source, over 211,000 murders since 1980 are unsolved) that no one is ever convicted of causing; these wouldn't be counted as murders in the UK.

So for the "news" outlets to say that London has now surpassed NY in the number of murders means there are a lot more, really a lot more, murders in London than in NY!

Of course a better plan to deal with the carnage would be to ban muslims instead of knives, but it appears to be too late for that solution. Sad!

Reports I read earlier this morning did mention acid. Probably not getting much play in the US media since most Americans have very little exposure to acid attacks.

New York City has had a defacto knife ban for several years. Any knife that could be opened one handed with a practiced wrist flip got the owner a weapons charge. There was talk about trying to get that changed, but I haven't followed the issue that closely.

Blogger Steve April 09, 2018 6:48 PM

He hasn't though. Benji's Daily Wire got this wrong.

It's been illegal to carry knives (except small folding pocket knives) in public places in Britain for decades. Obviously, you're not going to get "done" by the cops if you're a carpet fitter carrying a Stanley blade or a Scout leader whittling in the countryside or whatever.

The original intent was to give the authorities grounds to lock up members of razor gangs in the 50's and 60's (i.e. before they get caught murdering or mutilating someone). That intent remains - the police don't stop and search normal people to check for knives. They do stop and search known chavvy scumbags, i.e. bad boys with criminal records. If they are found carrying a potentially deadly weapon, and have no good reason to be carrying it, they can go to jail. Not very civil libertarian, but it's one way of keeping violent thugs out of circulation.

The Mayor of London has no power to change the law. He can't even appoint the Police Commissioner. It's a glorified town council job, basically. His "knife strategy" amounts to asking the police to do what they've already been paid to do since about 1959.

Knife crime in London is disproportionately (though not exclusively) caused by blacks of Afro-Carribean descent, the sort of folks Enoch Powell warned us about. Rather than deal with the causes of crime, which are now largely a result of the wrong demographics being in the wrong geographics, the government and the Mayor of London are desperately trying to be seen "doing something". Tweeting that knife-wielders will be arrested counts as something, so Khan did that.

Parliament previously passed a daft law restricting the sale of mail order knives, as if that will make a difference. It's all a cynical song and dance in the hopes of surviving another news cycle.

Here in the USA near where I live a Japanese guy had a martial arts class. On the way in he had a Samurai sword on display with do not touch warnings. One of his smart ass students went and touched the sword and the Jap went and cut his hand off. It was a while ago so I suppose he is out of jail by now.

Knife control is logically impossible, since it was already illegal to carry a knife in Britain, therefore also in London which is, nominally, still a part of the UK and not the Caliphate. Therefore there are no knives being carried, therefore no knives to control.

Still, one has to admire the pointed obduracy of people who try to ban knives because a couple of people get shot.

Public carry of knives is illegal in Israel. No joke. You can go to jail for up to five years from this 1980s-era law, if you don't have a "valid reason." Security is not a valid reason. I know, because I got snared in this net. I hired a lawyer rather than take my chances with a public defender. The Attorney General himself has to sign off on prosecution waivers for defendants to be diverted to community service. Once you are ensnared, they will not simply dismiss, even for first-time "offenders." People have gone to jail over this, and not just Arabs.

Obviously? Really? Don’t you hear weekly about some absurd overreaction by cops, educators, politicians, etc? For example, in Britain, there are hundreds of cops monitoring the internet for “hate crimes” against muslims, but an insufficient number to investigate violent crimes. Since when is investigating offensive speech more important than murder or rape? What you are saying would be true if commonsense was an important commodity in Europe or America. It hasn’t been since before Bush II was elected.
