Trump To May: Forget Me! Focus On Radical Islam!
EDITORS NOTE: Joe Simons is President of University of Kent UKIP Students
Yesterday President Trump retweeted three videos of Islamist brutality, the sort of brutality that goes against all the enlightened values we enjoy in the West:
The first video showed an alleged “Muslim migrant” assaulting a Dutch teenager on crutches; the second showed a Muslim man proclaiming that “Allah alone will be worshipped in the Levant” before smashing a statue of the Virgin Mary and chanting “Allahu Akbar”; the third showed Islamic State militants pushing a teenage boy off a rooftop (a common Islamic State punishment for homosexuality) and then cruelly beating his dead or dying body.
Each one of these videos depicted an abhorrent act of violence or iconoclastic Jihad. The actions of each of the perpetrators in these videos should be universally condemned, particularly by the mainstream media whose influence would alert the world to the barbarity of these Islamists caught on camera.
Alas, no such universal condemnation can be found. In a turn of events that one can only expect from the corrupt mainstream media Donald Trump has been their target of condemnation.
The mainstream media’s reasoning for attacking Trump instead of the Islamists is that the retweeted videos were originally uploaded by Britain First’s deputy leader Jayda Fransen.
In fact, the majority of articles covering this story spend most of their time describing who Ms. Fransen is and what she’s been up to recently.
Which do you think is more important: the individual who uploaded these videos or the horrific crimes that these videos have documented?
One article of note which failed to condemn the barbarity highlighted in these videos came from the so-called Independent. They failed to write anything productive and instead implied that the President of the United States should be banned from Twitter for these retweets, even though they broke none of Twitter’s terms of service!
Metro, a publication that remains relevant purely through the fact that it’s free at train stations, labelled the videos “hate messages” while completely ignoring their anti-disability, anti-Christian and anti-gay hate messages!
Finally, the beacon of bourgeois drivel that is the Guardian (who brought you other classic articles such as “George Osborne ruined my yoga retreat” and “I dread the day my daughter’s poos get smaller”) even went so far as to make Muslims the victims of these videos and then went on to link Donald Trump’s retweets with the murder of Jo Cox.
What is perhaps even more worrying is the fact that the Conservative government have weighed in on this debate with weak and wobbly Prime Minister Theresa May and Brexit-traitor Boris Johnson attacking President Trump while failing to condemn the despicable acts seen in the three videos in question. How can we expect this Conservative government to keep us safe from the serious threat of Islamism when they can’t even condemn the contents of three videos on Twitter?
Just ask yourself this simple question: who is more worthy of condemnation: the democratically elected President of the United States or autocratic, anti-Western, oppressive Islamists?
If you said the latter then you are correct and have demonstrated that you possess some basic humanity and reasoning skills. If you said the former, then you are unfortunately suffering from “Trump Derangement Syndrome”, the prognosis for which is very bleak.
President Trump closed the book on this silly saga (for now) early this morning with another Tweet: “Theresa May, don’t focus on me, focus on the destructive Radical Islamic Terrorism that is taking place within the United Kingdom”.
If Theresa May, the Conservatives and the mainstream media would heed his words and learn this lesson, our future might be a little brighter; we might be able to move on from the 40 deaths and 639 injuries from Islamic terrorism this year alone.
But for now, with the politically-correct status-quo in power, we’ll have to lie in the bed that has been made for us.
