Vileness appeared today
It had to happen. The London Metropolitan Police has today protected about 100 protestors who in Grosvenor Square - the location of the US Embassy to the UK - held placards proclaiming "Islam will dominate the world", calling for an Islamic Caliphate for the UK and the US and celebrating that Afghanistan is a graveyard of US soldiers. They deliberately broke the minute of silence held to commemorate the dead and are now celebrating the same on their website. They burnt the US flag.
Their website makes it bold:
This is a war between ideologies, namely between those who stand on the side of Islam and those who stand on the side of democracy and freedom. In the West they use different terminologies, they call it a war between freedom and terrorism, it is strange though that all the "terrorists" are Muslim and all those Muslims have as there ideology Islam.
The claim is that the US has lost the ideological war. They are worshippers of a death cult of slavery and depravity, they openly despise freedom, openly believe laws cannot be created except in the shadow of their misogynistic violent death cult. They use the freedom of the West to fight against it,
It is worth noting that two groups counter-protested. A group of Muslims appeared holding placards saying "Muslims against Extremism", "Keep the Silence" and "If you want Sharia, Move to Saudi". Good for them. The more British Muslims confront the Islamists the more it will be accepted that the majority of them live in the UK because of freedom, not to destroy it. According to the Daily Mail one said "If the moderate Muslims all came out and spoke out, that would defeat them..I am proud to be British. I love my country. All these people are doing is breaking Britain apart."
Another group comprised the English Defence League, a group commonly described as fascist/far right, which is largely a bunch of working class men who are loudly and usually rather bluntly against Islamism. The Police moved them so that the Islamist misogynists could have their protests. For all of their faults, the EDL is at least NOT against the freedoms and secularism of modern Britain. Indeed, treating them as being as bad as the Islamists will simply encourage recruitment.
What's most telling is that today, of all days, those who would destroy our way of life were allowed to be unspeakably disgusting and vile. It makes a profound mockery of so called "human rights" laws that don't allow people to express offensive views based on race, sex, religion and sexuality, when people who hold those very views, are protected by the state to express them.
Now I would not stop people expressing those views, but would also not stop others counter-protesting, and would not move peaceful citizens on to let people protest. Islamists sought to protest outside the US Embassy, knowing how inflammatory and offensive it would be, and got state protection to do so. Would anyone who dared go to Muslim majority parts of Britain expect the same protection if they wanted to protest for a secular state, freedom and equal rights for women?
