Ah, London – the home of Big Ben, gray skies, and terrorist hot spots (see Multiple Dead in London Terrorist Attack. Suspect Probably Not Amish, as well as Again?! ANOTHER Terror Attack in London. This Time Outside Mosque and BREAKING: Yet ANOTHER Terror Attack Hits UK, This Time London Bridge). It’s the place to go if you’d like to indulge in some high brow humor over Earl Grey. Perhaps with two sugars and a dash of acid too, please and thanks. Though not the psychedelic kind. See, in America, dropping acid is something one does in order to hallucinate ones balls off while making bad choices. But they do things a little differently across the pond. More face sizzling.
Turns out this whole acid ordeal is becoming a huge problem for London. Check out what happened just in the course of one night.
A 16-year-old boy is in custody after two males on a moped carried out five acid attacks across London in less than 90 minutes, police said.
The teenager was arrested on suspicion of robbery and grievous bodily harm following the assaults, which the Metropolitan Police said appeared to be linked.
At the start of the rampage, a 32-year-old moped rider had been approached by the pair as he drove towards the Hackney Road junction with Queensbridge Road. In the initial encounter, the two male suspects had tossed a noxious substance into his face before one of them jumped on to the victim’s vehicle and drove away.
Little more than 20 minutes later, at around 10.50pm, another victim had been sprayed with searing liquid by the pair. Then at around 11.05pm, the fast-moving attackers swooped on a man in Shoreditch High Street, tossing a substance in his face. Within 15 minutes, they appeared to have struck again, launching their corrosive load at a man and causing “life-changing” facial injuries.
There are quite a few acid-flinging maniacs in London (see Acid Attacks Now Happening in London EVERY WEEK). While the identities of these suspects have yet to be released, it’s worth noting how this problem is plaguing the UK in particular — where Islam is seeping its way into England faster than wine on an ivory carpet. Or maybe that’s not wine, but blood. Meanwhile, in the States, where we accept significantly fewer refugees, we have no such corrosive epidemics. Interesting.
It does appear wherever Islam goes, crap hitting the fan seems to follow. There may be, dare I say it, a connection between the two. Though to utter such notions is Islamophobic.
Whatever the cause, it’s undeniably a huge issue for London. While unsuspecting victims are getting their faces melted off in the streets, London’s Mayor is working hard on solutions. Just not to this problem. He’s a bit preoccupied at the moment with other pressing matters, like freeing the subway from the shackles of gender affirming hate speech or something (see Mayor to London Underground Metro Workers: Stop Saying ‘Ladies and Gentlemen’).
Sorry Brits. Looks like a #Brexit from all things leftism is in order.
