Our own Tommy Robinson has been warning for years that the British people are under attack, and if their Establishment does nothing — or worse, if the Establishment denounces, arrests and harasses anyone who even speaks out — the country will reach the breaking point.
Yesterday someone snapped.
When Muslims were leaving London’s Finsbury Park mosque after Ramadan, a 47-year-old white man named Darren Osborne drove his van into a group of civilians. He killed one and injured ten. Of course, it was wrong that Osborne decided to fight terrorism with terrorism, and that is indeed what his act was.
(That particular mosque has been a terrorist recruiting mosque for years. It’s inaccurate to think of it as a house of worship; comparing it to a Hells’ Angels clubhouse is more accurate.)
Now remember, after the Manchester concert bombing, lefties said, as they always do:
Keep on acting as if nothing has changed.
But there was none of that today.
London Mayor Sadiq Khan always says that Muslim terrorist attacks are, “part and parcel of living in a big city.” Of course, he rarely uses the word "terrorist," and rarer still “Muslim terrorist”. But he sure used the word terrorist last night — and certainly didn’t call for people to accept it.
It’s a double standard. Which is why this vigilante snapped.
I’m not excusing it. I’m explaining it.
And warning of more to come.
TONIGHT: Barbara Kay joins me to talk about what she calls “the West’s willful blindness to the threat of Islamist terrorism;” then Candice Malcolm and I talk about the “real legacy” of Trudeau’s Syrian “refugee” policy.
