It has been less than a week since President Trump re-tweeted videos of alleged Muslims committing acts of violence and British Prime Minister Theresa May criticized Trump for doing so. In an ironic turn of events Islamic terrorists’ recently planned an attack on May.
The original videos were published by Jayda Fransen whom is party leader to Britain First, an organization described by liberals as “ultranationalist”.
According to the NYTimes: It was unclear on Wednesday morning whether the perpetrators in the videos were Muslim, as Ms. Fransen suggested. Mr. Trump is not among Ms. Fransen’s Twitter followers. But the president does follow a conservative commentator, Ann Coulter, who on Tuesday retweeted the video purporting to show a Muslim migrant beating a Dutch boy.
The White House spokeswoman, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, defended the president’s tweets to reporters on Wednesday and said the president was talking about the need for national security and military spending.
“The threat is real,” Ms. Sanders said. “The threat needs to be addressed. The threat has to be talked about, and that’s what the president is doing in bringing that up.”
British politicians were outraged by the retweets and quick to spew their anger.
British prime minister Theresa May said, “It is wrong for the president to have done this.”
In a statement, her office also said of Britain First: “Britain First seeks to divide communities by their use of hateful narratives that peddle lies and stoke tensions. They cause anxiety to law-abiding people.”
The videos posted seemed pretty straightforward to us.
And now May has a sorts of anxiety to deal with.
The Metropolitan police recently stopped two men — Naa’imur Zakariyah Rahman, 20, from north London, and Mohammed Aqib Imran, 21 — from trying to blow up the PM’s house. Authorities said the two men had been charged “with the intention of committing acts of terrorism” and with “engaging in conduct in preparation for giving effect to that intention,” The Guardian reported.
“Security officials believe they have thwarted an alleged plot to assassinate Theresa May by terrorists who would first bomb their way into Downing Street and then kill the prime minister, it has emerged,” said The Guardian.
‘In court proceedings, prosecutor Mark Carroll told the court that Rahman planned to detonate an improvised explosive device at the gates of 10 Downing Street, where May lives, then storm her office and kill her,’ reports the Daily Wire.
“The secondary attack was to be carried out with a suicide vest, pepper spray and a knife,” he told the court.
Rahman, when being arrested, was carrying two explosive devices. “His purpose was to attack, kill and cause explosions,” Carroll said.
So, British politicians what do you think about your safety now? Maybe you should take into consideration that there is a real threat amongst society and Westminster should do everything they can to stop Islamist terrorists from succeeding in their jihad. Remove the ‘rose-colored glasses’ U.K. and wake up to reality.
