Immigration is the new “save the whales” movement. But at least that fashionable trend didn’t produce a steady stream of body bags – by Ann Coulter (Reprinted by permission)
After the mass murder committed by Muslims in San Bernadino, which came on the heels of the mass murder committed by Muslims in Paris, Donald Trump proposed a moratorium on Muslim immigration.
Explaining the idea on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, he talked about how Muslim immigration was infecting Europe:
“Look at what happened in Paris, the horrible carnage…. We have places in London and other places that are so radicalized that the police are afraid for their own lives. We have to be very smart and very vigilant.”
Trump’s comment about London was met with a massive round of sneering, which is what passes for argument these days. Jeb! said Trump was “unhinged,” Sen. John McCain called him “foolish,” and former vice president Dick Cheney said Trump’s remarks went “against everything we stand for and believe in.” (Based on Trump’s crushing primary victories, Cheney is no longer qualified to say what “we” believe in.)
The press leapt to action, intent on proving Trump wrong. To that end, reporters called British authorities and asked them if they were doing their jobs. Surprisingly, they said, “Why, yes we are!” The head of London’s police said, “Mr. Trump could not be more wrong” and London mayor Boris Johnson called Trump’s comments “utter nonsense.”
Within days, however, dozens of rank and file London policemen begged to differ with their spokesmen, as evidenced by the following headlines:
UK Daily Mail: ‘TRUMP’S NOT WRONG – WE CAN’T WEAR UNIFORM IN OUR OWN CARS’: FIVE POLICE OFFICERS CLAIM DONALD TRUMP IS RIGHT ABOUT PARTS OF LONDON BEING SO ‘RADICALISED’ THEY ARE NO-GO AREAS
The Sun: ‘THERE ARE NO-GO AREAS IN LONDON’: POLICEMEN BACK TRUMP’S CONTROVERSIAL COMMENTS
UK Daily Express: ‘TRUMP IS RIGHT!’ POLICE SAY PARTS OF BRITAIN ARE NO-GO AREAS DUE TO ISIS RADICALISATION
Then, in January of this year, Donald Trump talked specifically about the Muslim invasion of Brussels on the Maria Bartiromo show. “There is something going on, Maria,” he said. “Go to Brussels. …There is something going on and it’s not good, where they want Shariah law, where they want this, where they want things that —There is something bad going on.”
The New York Times headlined a story on the interview: “Donald Trump Finds New City to Insult: Brussels.” News is no longer about communicating information; it’s about imparting an attitude. Trump is rude, whether he’s right is irrelevant.
Indignant Belgians took to Twitter, the Times reported, “deploying an arsenal of insults, irony and humor, including images of Belgium’s beloved beer and chocolate.” (Liberals have gone from not understanding jokes to not understanding English. When Trump talked about unassimilated Muslim immigrants demanding Sharia law, I don’t think he was referring to Belgium’s trademark beer and chocolate.)
Rudi Vervoort, the president of the Brussels region (who evidently survived this week’s bombing) rebuked Trump, saying, “We can reassure the Americans that Brussels is a multicultural city where it is good to live.”
After “multiculturalism” struck this week, Vervoort said, “I would like to express my support to the victims of the attacks of this morning….” (I’m beginning to suspect that politicians and journalists secretly enjoy the occasional Muslim mass murder. It’s the only time everyone listens to them.)
Twitter bristled with hashtags, the Belgian flag and professions of solidarity.
The Times editorialized: “Brussels, Europe, the world must brace for a long struggle against this form of terrorism.”
This would all be perfectly normal if we were talking about an earthquake, a tsunami or some other natural disaster – something humans have no capacity to prevent. But Muslims pouring into our countries and committing mass murder isn’t natural at all. It’s the direct result of government policy.
It’s as if the government were dumping rats in our houses and then, whenever someone died of the plague, those same government officials issued heartfelt condolences, Twitter lit up with sympathetic hashtags and the Times editorialized about effective rodent control, but no one ever bothered to say, <Hey! Maybe the government should stop placing rats in our houses!>
This is the madness that has seized the civilized world, a psychosis Peter Brimelow calls “Hitler’s revenge.”
Apparently, what we have learned from Hitler is not: Don’t kill Jews. To the contrary, the only people who openly proclaim their enthusiasm for killing Jews are … Muslims.
What we’ve learned from Hitler is not: Don’t attempt to seize hegemonic control over entire continents. The only people vowing to conquer the world are … Muslims.
And what we’ve learned from Hitler is not: Beware violent uprisings of angry young men. The only hordes of angry young men are, again … Muslims (and Trump protesters).
But instead of learning our lesson and recoiling with horror at this modern iteration of Nazism
