There was a terror attack at a concert for Ariana Grande Monday night in Manchester, England. Officials know the identity of who was responsible, but at the time of this posting, a name hasn’t be released. Regardless, Prime Minister Theresa May said England needs “to take on the ideology that often fuels this violence.” She’s probably not referring to Buddhism (see MI5 Knew London Terrorist Was Known ‘Extremist’and Multiple Dead in London Terrorist Attack. Suspect Probably Not Amish).
Also, seems ISIS has stamped their mark on this one:
APNEWSALERT: Islamic State group says one of its members carried out the Manchester attack that killed 22 people.

The ISIS statement ends with: "And what comes next will be more severe on the worshippers of the Cross and their allies." #ManchesterAttack

Okay, so we can rule out the Methodists now.
President Trump? He had a different take.
“So many young, beautiful, innocent people living and enjoying their lives, murdered by evil losers. I won’t call them monsters because they would like that term, they would think that is a great name.”
“I will call them, from now on, losers because that’s what they are: losers.”
The president might not be eloquent, but he’s right. These terrorists fear shame more than death. It’s why Abu Graib was such an outrage when American, female soldiers stripped them naked and laughed at them while dogs barked. To them, that is a far greater punishment than death or torture. If any American received said treatment at the hands of ISIS, we’d thank the Lord above we weren’t being burned alive in cages.
What Trump did was show the way to dealing with these losers, whether he knew it or not. We don’t merely punish terrorists through death. We punish them through shame. At least ONE leader is willing to give it the old college try. So today, we stand with the President of the United States, instead of trying to mince words on social media and virtue-signal about how much “unity” we need.
We don’t need “unity.” We need an alliance. There’s a difference. The western world needs to ally themselves against the evil that is political Islam. To unite with its practitioners would be to unite with evil. Anyone who sees that as a virtue is simply enabling evil and by proxy, is evil themselves.
