Leftists Blast Trump for UK Crime Rate Comments. But, He's Not Wrong...
Everyone knows the stereotypes about New York and London. The Big Apple is a dingy crime-ridden slum, chock full of spaghetti-slurping gangsters and back-alley stabbings. London, on the other hand, is a peaceful metropolis where chivalry and high-brow culture reign supreme. Except, that's no longer the case at all. London's crime rate is quickly overtaking New York's.
London is now more crime ridden and dangerous than New York City, with rape, robbery and violent offences far higher on this side of the Atlantic.
Seizing on the figures, US President, Donald Trump, claimed the rise could be linked to the “spread of radical Islam”, adding that it demonstrated the need to “keep America safe”.
Just out report: "United Kingdom crime rises 13% annually amid spread of Radical Islamic terror." Not good, we must keep America safe!— Donald J. Trump (@Donald J. Trump)1508495510.0
But critics dismissed his comments as “ignorant” and “divisive”, with former Labour leader Ed Miliband calling him an “absolute moron”.
Yeah, because it's not like there's a smorgasbord of cases where horny Muslim men are getting their rape on with European lady-folk (see #RefugeesWelcome: UK Arrests 900 Syrians For Rape and Child Abuse… and Desperate UK Police Pay Convicted Rapist to Spy on Hidden Sex Ring. And it’s Bad…).
Criminal justice experts insisted rising crime in the UK, and particularly London, was more to do with the way the city was policed and blamed the reduction in neighbourhood patrols across the capital.
While both London and New York have populations of around 8 million, figures suggest you are almost six times more likely to be burgled in the British capital than in the US city, and one and a half times more likely to fall victim to a robbery.
That seems statistically significant.
London has almost three times the number of reported rapes and while the murder rate in New York remains higher, the gap is narrowing dramatically.
The UK disarmed their citizens and police. While simultaneously inviting rape-happy religious extremists with no desire to assimilate to move in. You'll often see limeys with tea-stained teeth bragging about those things on the news. But, as these numbers show, they're not exactly working wonders for London's crime rate.
That's not even to mention Islamists' favorite hobbies. Like mutilating little girls' genitals, throwing acid in people's faces and suicide-bombing Ariana Grande concerts. None of which seems to register in the ever-tolerant Brits' brains. But, it's Trump who's the "absolute moron" for suggesting Muslims might be upping the UK's crime rate.
The Brits will never admit it, but Trump is right. Their "inclusive" anti-gun society isn't all it's cracked up to be. When you leave your people defenseless and welcome baddies in by the truck-load, not-so-great things will happen. People get murdered, things get stolen and, yes, ladies will get raped:
