WEEKLY UPDATE FOR September 23rd, 2016
Greetings from Tyler
It is safe to say that there is an acceleration in events that hasten the approach of anarchy for much of western civilization. Lessons have been learned this week that should have been learned long ago. Instead, we are warned not to draw any conclusions from bombers or riotous thugs, both of which dominated everyone’s attention over the last week. Needless to say, we haven’t heard the last of either. In fact, we’re being told that these kinds of “incidents” are to be expected, particularly if you intend to reside in a “great global city.”
London’s Pakistani Mayor Sadiq Khan teamed up with New York City’s Bill DeBlasio and Paris Mayor Ann Hidalgo to warn against anti-immigrant rhetoric in the immediate aftermath of terrorist bombs being distributed in New Jersey and New York. Writing in a joint op-ed for the New York Times they said, “It would be wrong to characterize immigrant and refugee communities as radical and dangerous; in our experience militant violence is vanishingly rare.”
It must take some kind of guts to make such a statement in the wake of the mayhem and bloodshed we’ve seen in France (for that matter all over Europe) this summer at the hands of terrorists who’ve exploited the “refugee” population. Since the vast majority of “refugees” are young single men, none of these mayors have any idea how many may be capable of the kind of maniacal acts carried out time and time again. Only one of the perpetrators who assembled and distributed bombs intended to kill and maim hundreds of people in New Jersey and New York is dead. They’ve got photographs of at least two others who handled the explosive devices, and there are probably more who were intimately involved in the plot. They’re still at large, no doubt in hiding in the “immigrant community” these mayors claim holds great promise. Vanishingly rare? Where have these liars been?
But the punch line of this ridiculous diatribe was London’s Mayor Khan’s statement that occasional terrorist attack is an acceptable feature in the world’s “great global cities.” If that wasn’t a bizarre mouthful. He’s telling us to lighten up and get used to it. He believes it’s a small price to pay for those who wish to visit or reside in one of the world’s “great global cities.” Unfortunately, we’ve learned that distribution of “refugees” in America has been largely weighted toward small and medium size towns like Boise, Idaho where over 100 Syrian refugees were just located. Isn’t it interesting that Idaho has had a reputation for attracting Americans who wanted to escape all the red tape and dangers inherent in the world’s “great global cities” and be left alone. Now it’s a haven for Sudanese, Somalis, and Syrians.
