‘We’re not preparing to fight this ideology!’ Douglas Murray blasts politicians’ inaction

A BRITISH author claimed the Manchester bombing, which claimed the lives of 22 people, happened because people refuse to believe extremists mean what they say.

Speaking to BBC’s Daily Politics, Douglas Murray said the west was failing to learn its lessons and was going in a “strange cycle”.

As Andrew Neil asked “What lessons are we failing to learn?” the author said: “Every imaginable one, we don’t want to listen to what extremists say.

“We don’t want to believe they mean what they say. We still seem to be, even after all these years and this strange cycle, we’re not preparing to fight this ideology.

    When the authorities refuse to even recognise the “ideology” in question and charge citizens who do with bogus hate crime, including sending the equivalent of the Stasi in the middle of the night to break into your home and arrest you, things are not looking good.

    And they’re also not a tiny, tiny minority. Every poll I’ve ever seen of Western Moslems shows about 25% to 33% supporting terror to spread Islam.

      Then there are those who won’t admit to supporting it. I believe you could safely double those numbers…

      Some of the newest polls say 25% – 33% are willing to actively support violent jihad and another 50% are willing to help but not intetested in hands on.

    Does anyone remember the movie “V for Vendetta”? Who was the villain? A warped form of right-wing Christianity. Indeed one of the heroes, played by Stephen Fry, was a closeted homosexual. The main hero was a science experiment gone awry. And yet, even now, the largely secular government is at the beginning of the “V” cycle – prosecuting anyone that wishes to discuss or criticize Islam as racist, Islamophobic, xenophobic, or guilty of hate speech. And what is Islam? A deviant right-wing political ideology being protected in Britain by a secular government that really doesn’t believe any Islam doctrine, but hates Christians with a passion.

    And when one listens to the senate subcommittee discussing Bill C-16, one can’t help to see the parallels. Dr. Jordan Peterson might as well have been talking, for the most part, to himself over his concerns for enshrining legal protection for gender ID pronouns into the Human Rights Code. The senators did not understand that law can be used as a weapon of agenda to target specific groups, and that badly worded law makes it even easier.
