Did you notice?

They didn’t say it. Not one of them said it. Not one world leader rushed to the microphone in the wake of the horrific attacks in Belgium to remind us that “Islam is a religion of peace.” Even Craig Laundy kept his mouth shut.

Think about that for a moment. Remember how it used to be? Remember how quickly they would all rush to say it, before hordes of evil white folk fell on the poor defenceless Muslims?

    Can we blame Trump Trump Trump for daring to say we need to figure out what is going on first? (Daring to state the obvious, out loud.)

    • No we can’t, he’s absolutely right on that count.

        Blame for folks not saying Islam is Peace, not the most recent attack.

    That’s a good thing.

    The writing was on the wall before Brussels, with the Trump juggernaut and the rise of ‘far right’ sentiment across Europe. People are sick and tired of islam and everything connected to it. No amount of shaming language, calling us racists, islamophobes, nazis, etc. is going to scare us back into silence any time soon.

    It’s survival instincts overriding what usually passes for their higher brain functions. Our leaders may be idiots, but they didn’t reach those heights without well-developed political intuition. Those senses are telling them they’ve been poking a sleeping bear with a stick, and that the cranky beast is one annoying and condescending lecture from waking up and turning on them.

    • People are starting to understand, less Islam equals less terrorism.

    That is indeed true. The change has been quite rapid.
    The irony of the word ‘leader’ is also noted. What happened is that feedback from the plebs demonstrated that the ‘leaders’ aren’t fooling anyone with their Islam is Peace BS so they were only making fools of themselves for no reason. As they say, politicians lead by walking out the front backwards.
