British Home Secretary to Islamic Extremists: “The Game is Up”

“There is increasing evidence that a small but significant number of people living in Britain — almost all of whom are British citizens — reject our values. … It’s clear from these examples that extremism can take many forms. … They utterly reject British and Western values, including democracy, the rule of law, and equality between citizens, regardless of their gender, ethnicity, religion or sexuality. They believe that it’s impossible to be a good Muslim and a good British citizen. And they dismiss anybody who disagrees with them — including other Muslims — as ‘kafirs,’ or non-believers.” — Theresa May, British Home Secretary.

“Intolerance, hatred and bigotry become normalized. Trust is replaced by fear, reciprocity by envy, and solidarity by division. … [I]f anybody else discriminated against women, denounced people on the basis of their religious beliefs, rejected the democratic process, attacked people on the basis of their sexuality, or gave a nod and a wink in favor of violence and terrorism, we wouldn’t hesitate to challenge them or — if the law was broken — call for their prosecution and punishment.” — Theresa May, British Home Secretary.

Some Muslim groups say May’s comments amounted to “Islamophobia.”

Manzoor Moghal, the chairman of the Muslim Forum, a think tank, told the BBC that May’s proposals would infringe on freedom of speech…

    yeah, looks like islamophobia. have a problem with that?

  • Mal

    I think it’s lovely that they say May’s comments “amount” to islamophobia (AKA “criticism of islamistic incivilities”). It just shows that any unfavourable expression of opinion – even as relatively mild and truthful as those expressed by May – are beyond the pale, and must be slandered. More proof, in other words, that they’re full of sh!t.
    Good on ya, Theresa. For once, anyway.

    UKIP must have them worried.

    • Millie_Woods

      She just has to pull the burka over everyone’s eyes until the votes are counted.

  • Brett_McS

    Funny, I didn’t catch the mea culpa from the political class about bringing these savages into the UK in the first place.

    • Stronger than Dirt

      Perhaps the political class is snickering in the background … with their arms around the shoulder of prominent imams.

  • Brett_McS

    “They believe that it’s impossible to be a good Muslim and a good British citizen.”

    Oh, they’re working on that … soon enough it will be possible to be both.

  • chayisun

    Words are cheap. let’s see some action.

    • Stronger than Dirt

      Yeh, I guess Geert Wilders and others can stop truth telling now and all Israelis and Jews and Christians the world over can sigh in relief now that windbag May has everything under control (more jihadi immigration including Canada).

      • David

        I will give her the benefit of the doubt for the time being.

        • Stronger than Dirt

          I can’t. Her statements are in my opinion, affirmation of her leftist ideals … and frankly gynocentric. In other words she is spouting leftist propaganda … who supports islamic jihadis ? … misguided leftists.

  • cmh

    she has jumped the fence because she knows she will not win the coming election by continuing to apologize for islam. she’s a dirty bitch.

  • roccolore

    So when does Theresa May plan to apologize to Robert Spencer?

  • pdxnag

    Does this mean that the number of pre-violent jihadis in the U.K. will be cut in half each ten year period from here on out until they have all been expelled? (Nothing less will protect freedom.)
