If you’re a politician, your biggest talent is maintaining a grin while the world rots (see Again?! Yet ANOTHER Terror Attack in London. This Time Outside Mosque and European Union Admits Most Migrants Are NOT Actually Refugees…). Ignore the screams of citizens as they are mowed down and stabbed in the streets. Just relax. Islam isn’t dangerous. Stand tall. Stand united. Rather, rinse, repeat.
Nigel Farage has some thoughts about that vicious cycle to which European leaders lacking vertebra so desperately cling.
Tucker: At what point, Nigel, do you think that European leaders start to realize that maybe these attacks are connected, in some sense?
Farage: There’s no realization at all. In fact, hat happens is they all stand up and say we stand in solidarity with Barcelona, or Brussels, or Stockholm, or Paris, or London, or wherever it may be and this is really truly awful and we have no understanding of why this is going on. And not once, not once do we ever hear a single leader in Europe offer any policy solution whatsoever. They are still in denial. And I could only guess it’s because they are so embarrassed by the fact that they have caused this.
We can say the European politicians are in denial but it’s what happing in America that amazes me. It seems to me there’s a large section of America that is much more concerned with tearing down historical statues, that date back to the civil war, than recognizing who the real enemy of the West is.
He’s not wrong. Terorrism in Europe is becoming so commonplace, it’s almost not even news. Sorry to say it, but people’s reaction to stabbings in Europe, or trucks mowing people down isn’t getting reactions anymore. Because they’re so common. In America, our reaction anymore is “Well, here we go again.” Which is awful. But sorry, it’s just the way it is. As terrorism has become in Europe.
What needs to happen is what isn’t happening: European leadership needs to care more about its people than how peers react to levels of wokeness via exercises in multiculturalism. Until that time, terrorism will continue wreaking havoc in Europe, with less and less global reaction to it.
