Katie Hopkins takes the liberals’ rose colored glasses and stomps all over them. Check this out.
Sometimes the build-up of pressure is just too much. You see it in nature – the force of two tectonic plates converging along a fault line. Shuddering out earthquakes, forcing up mountains, causing volcanoes to scream and spew lava down themselves.
Society is just the same. Simmering tensions boiling over into road rage, an angry exchange, knives drawn in the street.
Opposing forces shunting against each other so violently, eventually something gives. Someone gives.
And so it has been with Orlando. Islam against homosexuality.
Forty nine dead. Fifty one injured.
And the shock waves of this human earthquake spread fast. The ground whipped out from under the feet of a hundred sleeping mothers, some clutching phones, still listening to their frightened children’s last, terrified messages.
How much longer can we continue to deny a fault line has been drawn? On one side Islam and Muslims defined by it. On the other the LGBT community, defined by their right to love as they please.
Over the last two days, the deference of the liberal Left to Muslims over the LGBT community has been excruciating to watch. Unable to reconcile the two causes they champion, they have an awkward inconvenience they dare not face. An ex-wife at a wedding, acknowledged with an invitation, but sat at the back, facing the air-con unit.
Predictably they have chosen Islam.
And don’t tell me the ‘acts of a few extremists do not represent Islam’, because I am sick of hearing it. Every time another Islamist takes down a club, knocks out an airport or wipes out the subway, we are supposed to embrace Muslims and spread the love.
Obama saunters off a golf course and refuses to even acknowledge the role of religion in the debate. Hillary Clinton wants to be clear Islam is not the enemy. But that’s precisely where she is wrong.
