London Bridge is Falling Down, My Fair Lady

  French novelist Jean-Baptiste Alphonse Karr once said “The more it changes, the more it’s the same thing.”  Unfortunately, this statement from 1849 still rings true today.  The once great U.K. is being changed by radical Islamic terror, and their response remains the same.

  The U.K. is under attack by radical Islamic terrorists, as recently seen in Manchester, London and perhaps other places by the time this is published.  Without fail, the response each time is to double down on protecting Islam and reassuring its citizens with positive messages that they will persevere, while not actually addressing the issue.  This is usually accompanied by selfish virtual signaling, such as social media hashtags to pray for <insert name>, as if the loved ones of the victims are searching for comforting messages from strangers on social media as they grieve. 

Although it may be uncomfortable, there is no bad time to talk about an issue that is killing innocent people en masse, and if that offends you, too bad.  In an effort to prevent free speech, U.K. law enforcement has cracked down on what they deem “hate speech”, which can be something as simple as a fact-based observation on social media about recent terror attacks.  I would invite you to stand up for what you believe in and ignore any threats from law enforcement for reasonably speaking a difficult truth; otherwise the U.K. is doomed to fail.

  The time has come for people of the U.K. to have an honest conversation about this issue, for their own future and that of their children.  They must hold their elected officials accountable for allowing this, and remove them from office.  Those leaders have become complicit in the terror deaths of innocent men, women and children.  Since law abiding citizens are not allowed to carry guns in the United Kingdom, I don’t see any other civilized option. 

  On June 3rd, 2017, three radical Islamic terrorists killed eight people and wounded 48 others by ramming into a crowd of people in a vehicle, and getting out of the vehicle and randomly stabbing people nearby.  The attack took place at the historic London Bridge.  London Bridge, a bridge so iconic that it was integrated into pop culture with a nursery rhyme, would eventually see those lyrics haunt them:

London Bridge is falling down,
Falling down, falling down.
London Bridge is falling down,
My fair lady.

Set a man to watch all night,
Watch all night, watch all night,
Set a man to watch all night,
My fair lady.

  You’re the fair lady, Theresa.  It’s time for you to end political correctness and take a stand on behalf of the good people of the U.K.  There life may just depend on it.
