I refuse to be “one” with London

Pardon my bluntness, but I am not “one” with London today. I prayed for London before. To what avail? They learned nothing from 7/7, Westminster, and other attacks.

On Saturday night, three Muslims plowed into people on a bridge in London, and stabbed a few more people. I feel sorry for the victims, but London? No. I don’t. Londoners elected an anti-Western Muslim as mayor.

If people are going to be that stupid, then why bother trying to help them?

The problem is not political correctness but cowardice. I saw plenty of London Blitz photos and references on Twitter yesterday — often with barbs aimed at our president.

This was how Londoners told themselves they were brave.

But on Saturday night they ran. Went home. Tweeted nasty things about our president for calling it terrorism.

They were terrified of course when they ran from danger, but courageous when out of harm’s way.

Really, I do not care what they say about my president.

Londonstan no longer matters. Visited it in 1977, and always intended to go back, but now: why?

The British — and many if not most Americans — would rather live in terror than discomfort.

Asking Muslim immigrants to leave most of their religious baggage at home before entering our country makes people uncomfortable.

So, we have these lefty cretins who just a few years ago wanted the United States to “do something” (vague as to what that was) about female genital mutilation in third world hellholes now protesting efforts to ban it in Michigan, Minnesota, and other places that Muslim migrants are turning into third world helholes.

This is not religious discrimination. We made the Mormons give up polygamy before we let Utah become a state.

Sure, some religious sects are allowed to run their own communities. The Amish aren’t marrying off 9-year-olds and scissoring their private parts. And they drink beer, so there’s that too.

But sharia law? No way. They can bring their prayer rugs but they will have to leave the law to civil authorities.

Of course, the globalists chant Ellis Island, Ellis Island, Ellis Island.

Let me tell you about Ellis Island. It was a screening center. We used it to keep out the miscreants, the physically unfit, and other drags on society, including anarchists.

America was not holding an Open House for Europe. We had quotas. We only wanted people to come to America who wanted to be American.

Britain did the same thing.

It no longer does.

It gets bombed.

People run home. calm down, tweet mean things about Trump, then send flowers, teddy bears and balloons top the site of the tragedy the next day.

Keep Calm?


Get angry. Demand leaders protect the damned nation from invaders. Close the Chunnel. Send the police to “no go zones” and clean out the varmints. If necessary, intern the 25,000 Muslim terrorist suspects at billionaire J.K. Rowling’s palatial mansion. They are her kind of people.

Until then, I ain’t standing with London.

Too dangerous. When Londoners decide to fight terrorism, let me know.
