late yesterday a man in a van plowed into a group of people outside the notorious Finsbury Park mosque in London. One person is dead (although it's unclear if the victim was struck by the vehicle as he evidently had collapsed from a heart attack) and at least 10 are reported injured. The attacker reportedly said "I want to kill all Muslims" and "I did my bit" as he was led away by the bobbies. And now, I have to be extremely careful in my commentary for reasons that sadly are apparent to all of us. First, there is absolutely ZERO justification for this individual's actions. Violence is to be condemned, and its perpetrators, enablers and cheerleaders shunned in the strongest possible way. Now, the potential land mine; I was going to write that I understand why this incident happened, but even that can be interpreted as an approval. What I suppose is more accurate is to say that what happened was inevitable.Read more here.
We are all human beings and someone is going to take it upon himself to "retaliate" against threats, perceived or real. If one looks at what has happened to England, virtually all of Europe and what may yet happen here, the only thing that is shocking is that this sort of incident took so long to occur. And yet, despite all we have been through, this is an isolated incident and solely the actions of one person. The inescapable truth is that Islamists and the Left are at war with us. Organized or not, both of those totalitarian ideologies openly and directly inspire and demand our subjugation, surrender or death in their unending quest for absolute power and control.
Unfortunately, the reaction from the Left and organized Islam to last night's incident will be to use this as proof positive that there is a war on the followers of Mohammed and their allies by racists, bigots, haters, nationalists, and the forces of darkness, etc. etc. Sure as night follows day, this will be used as a pretext to not only crack down on free speech with even more odious censorship, but will incite acts of retribution which, in a twisted Orwellian manner, will be covered up and/or excused by the usual suspects in the MFM and elsewhere. And in this country, watch this incident bury the actual Democrat-inspired terrorist attack last week while hit jobs and smears against Steve Scalise, Republicans and others continue. Ironic, in a sickening way, that they openly boast how Scalise had it coming, yet G-d forbid anyone were to use the word "karma" to describe what happened last night in London. Brace yourselves.
