So This Is The Thing Now

The Westminster terrorist, Khalid Masood, was born in Britain! That proves that immigration is nothing to worry about!

Seriously. This is the line they’re going with. Check out any of these hashtags: #londonattack #LondonAttacks #Westminsterbridge #LondonIsOpen #westminsterattack Khalid Masood

As I tweeted to an intelligent-seeming man who was grimly determined not to comprehend the bleeding obvious point:

“This is what political correctness does. You understand perfectly what I’m saying – lots of Muslim terrorists, irrespective of… birthplace – but U feel the need 2 pretend you’re struggling with a concept that’s so out there it’s nearly impossible 2 grasp.”

(Oh, and also, The Jews really pulled the whole thing off to prevent the Palestinians testifying about Israeli war crimes.)

What Britain Must Ask Itself after London Attacks

U.K. authorities have been preparing for a terrorist attack of this kind for years.

At 2:40 p.m. London time, a terrorist drove a vehicle into pedestrians on London’s Westminster Bridge. Then, reaching the north side of the bridge over the River Thames, he smashed into the gates of the British Parliament. Leaving his vehicle, he fought with police officers just inside a Parliamentary checkpoint. He was then shot and killed by armed police. Regrettably, before he died, the terrorist murdered one police officer and two other individuals and injured at least 20 others.

The scale of Islamist extremism is a problem for MI5

In her statement to the House of Commons, Theresa May said that the man responsible for yesterday’s attack was British-born and had previously been investigated by MI5 ‘in relation to concerns about violent extremism’. However, May stressed that, ‘The case is historic—he was not part of the current intelligence picture.’ 

Now, the fact that the attacker was known to the security services will lead to questions about why a closer watch wasn’t being kept on him. But there is, frankly, a volume problem here. The number of radicalised individuals is now so large — there are several thousand Islamist extremists being monitored by MI5 — that the security services have to be selective about who they keep the closest tabs on.

CSIS has said the same, they lack the resources to keep track of Islam’s vibrant diversity.

Vile wench whinges in the appalling Guardian about how “The far right wants to exploit the Westminster attack” – but, like, London’s too cool to let them, man

‘When the first news of the attack in Westminster began filtering through, I, along with many others, felt that familiar knot in our stomach – the kind one feels when braced for a predictable battle to separate fact from hysteria, plead for a sense of proportionality and entreat the hurt and the angry not to generalise. Despite being poised for the response, something felt different this time. Seemingly within minutes, former English Defence League leader Tommy Robinson was at the scene stirring hate while the shock was fresh. Nigel Farage was on the radio a few hours later, spewing predictable bile. Katie Hopkins published her usual MailOnline column, its tone sharpened to meet the high-octane moment, and was hosted on Fox News. Twitter abuse flooded towards Sadiq Khan, unleashed by Donald Trump Jr, who criticised London’s mayor hours after the attack for a perfectly reasonable and responsible claim he made six months ago that terrorist incidents were now part of the experience of living in a large city. We can only assume he singled out Khan because he was Muslim. All this happened in less than 24 hours after the attack.’

I swear they type these pieces in their sleep. She probably has ten on file, ready to go. But I guess she forgot, no doubt in a rare access of honesty, to mention the part where she felt bad for the maimed and murdered victims. Oops.

Khalid Masood named by police as Muslim responsible for Westminster terror attack

Khalid Masood Muslim Terrorist UK

The British-born jihadi who killed three and injured 29 in Westminster yesterday was a middle-aged career criminal called Khalid Masood.

The 52-year-old ‘lone-wolf’ attacker, who was living in the Birmingham area, has a series of convictions for assault and other crimes but police insist there was no intelligence suggesting he was about to unleash a terror attack.

Kent-born Masood has never been convicted of terror offences, although Theresa May revealed this morning that he had been on MI5’s radar a number of years ago.

Islamist Terror Will Test Western Liberal Values to Destruction

A policeman is stabbed to death right outside the Houses of Parliament: one of the most secure, heavily guarded areas, with more armed police on stand-by than anywhere in London.

Whoever the terrorist turns out to be he knew exactly what he was doing.

The math isn’t difficult, less Islam equals less terror.

Welcome to London: We can say we’re not afraid, light candles and make hearts of our hands but the truth is that we can’t go on like this

They stood in the centre of Brussels. Row on row.

Hands held high, making hearts to the heavens. Showing the slaughtered they were not forgotten. Reminding themselves they were here with love. Looking to show humanity wins. That love conquers all.

They lay in the centre of London, face down where they fell. Stabbed by a knife, rammed with a car, flung, broken, into the Thames, life bleeding out on the curb.
And the news came thick and fast.

Isis claims responsibility for London terror attack that killed at least three victims

Isis has claimed responsibility for the Westminster attack in a statement via its Amaq news agency.

A spokesperson said a “soldier of the Islamic State” had carried out the atrocity that killed three victims.

The wording of the statement mentioned no direct involvement in the attack, which investigators have said was inspired by Islamist terrorism.

Video shows woman jump into Thames as Muslim viciously runs over pedestrians

Horrifying footage shows the moment a a woman plunged into the River Thames as a car ploughs onto the pavement in a terror attack in the heart of London.
Incredibly she was rescued alive from the river following the atrocity, which saw three members of the public killed on the bridge before the driver stabbed a police officer.

Five people have died and 40 people have been injured in a terror attack near the Houses of Parliament.

Scotland Yard faces inquiry over handling of Tower Hamlets mayoral election corruption case

You can take the boy out of Bangladesh…

The official police watchdog is expected to launch an inquiry into how Scotland Yard dropped a criminal investigation into an east London election, despite a judge having ruled it involved “alarming” levels of corruption and illegality.

In 2015, in a damning 200-page High Court judgement, Lutfur Rahman’s victory in the 2014 Tower Hamlets mayoral election was declared void.

Condemning Mr Rahman for playing the “race card” throughout his career, judge Richard Mawrey QC ruled the politician had been “personally guilty” of illegal and corrupt practices during the May 2014 election that led to him securing a second term as the borough mayor.

UK Parliament Terror Attack: “̶A̶s̶i̶a̶n̶”̶ Muslim assailant killed after murdering Cop, 2 others, injuring 20 in knife & vehicle jihad assault

Scotland Yard confirms a police officer was killed as well as two other victiims of the Muslim terrorist who was shot dead by police, at least 20 are injured.

Update- SkyNews is reporting Two dead and others with catastrophic injuries.

Tommy Robinson weighs in…

Armed Police have opened fire and shot an intruder inside the grounds of the Houses of Parliament.

Several shots were fired at around 2.35pm moments after a loud bang was heard inside the Palace estate.

Three bodies were visible on the floor and the Palace was placed on an immediate lock down.

The House of Commons was suspended by Deputy Speaker Lindsay Hoyle. MPs have been ordered to wait inside the Commons chamber.

People outside the palace could be seen running from the scene when the shots were heard.

No suspects or motives revealed so far, but I’m betting it wasn’t Christadelphians.

Asians are suspected to be behind the Attack, in Canada we call them Muslims.

Things are all over the place at this point, reports of 4 to 12 injured, including one policeman stabbed, most of the injured by suspected vehicle jihad, 1 or 2 assailants shot. It does appear to have been contained and no deaths have been reported.

That said a witness is reporting that at least one of the assailants was “Asian”“Jayne Wilkinson said: “We were taking photos of Big Ben and we saw all the people running towards us, and then there was an Asian guy in about his 40s carrying a knife about seven or eight inches long.

Asian is code for Muslim in the UK.
