UK’s Progressive Left Sicker Than The London Bridge Killer

Britain, Islam, Left-Liberalism, Terrorism

The progressives Left kills again: The London Bridge Islamist was likely a “Known Wolf” among London police—why else would Metropolitan Police Chief Cressida Dick refuse to deny it?. The killer was also attending a criminology conference in London. I wonder if he was a guest of honor!

The progressive left is sicker than the perp because it enables evil as a matter of principle.

AP London:

A man wearing a fake explosive vest stabbed several people Friday in London, killing two in what police are treating as a terrorist attack before being tackled by members of the public and then fatally shot by officers on London Bridge.

Metropolitan Police Chief Cressida Dick said two stabbing victims had died and three injured people were being treated in hospitals after the attack, which unfolded just yards from the site of a deadly 2017 van and knife rampage.

Health officials said one of the injured was in critical but stable condition, one was stable and the third had less serious injuries.

Dick said police were working “at full tilt” to determine whether anyone else was involved in the attack. She would not say whether the suspect was known to police, noting it was “a very fast moving, dynamic investigation.”

British media including BBC and Sky News, citing security sources, said the attacker was an ex-prisoner with links to Islamic extremist groups. The Times of London said he stabbed people at a criminology conference in London that he was attending.

Officials would not confirm those details, but Prime Minister Boris Johnson said he had “long argued” that it was a “mistake to allow serious and violent criminals to come out of prison early.”

Yes, blame the authorities, those who swore to protect the public: “London Bridge: Attacker had been convicted of terror offence.” In the UK, that’s all the more reason to sic him on civilians.

NEW COLUMN: Update II (12/20/019): Conservative Kids Must Learn Before They Lead

An excerpt:

To judge by their writing, the youngsters who’ve been given the run of the conservative op-ed pages, pixelated and printed, know little about how socialism differs from capitalism.

To their credit, they’ve chosen a side—the right side—but are incapable of arguing the morality of capitalism and its efficacy (which stems from its morality).

Discredited are their employers for failing to demand that their young, conservative charges methodically and creatively motivate for the right—and the Right—side.

Endeavoring to explain the oft-repeated banality that, “Colleges are turning young people [into] socialists,” one such prototypical writer says this in her dog’s breakfast of a column, for the Washington Examiner:

“Students are gullible and moldable because they have little conviction and no foundation. Too often, public universities teach students to accept basic, shallow ‘knowledge’ at face value. They are not trained to ask why this knowledge matters or how it influences the rest of their education or how it relates to higher principles.”

The writer at once, and incoherently, condemns “shallow knowledge” (whatever that is), yet laments that students are not taught to relate “shallow knowledge” to higher principles. What does this even mean?!

Such bafflegab is published absent the telltale signs of editorial oversight. Or, perhaps the editors of the Examiner and publications like it think that voicing an opinion is the same as advancing an argument.

However, meandering assertions, circular arguments, non sequiturs and assorted banal utterances don’t belong on editorial pages. Agile argument does.

The piece continues in this puerile vain, conjuring the catchphrase that currently precedes every sentence spoken by a millennial: “I feel like.”

“I feel like” columns and essays are a dime a dozen; their purveyors having procured plum positions in the conservative press.

That “students are not learning” in schools and are thus gravitating to socialism is beyond trite—it’s also a non sequitur. For one would have to argue that lack of learning leads to socialism, and not merely assert it.

In showcasing amateurish, intern-quality material in national forums, conservatives are letting the liberal credo guide them. …

Sewage In Seattle

Environmentalism & Animal Rights, IMMIGRATION, Left-Liberalism, Technology

As argued in “Homeless In Seattle, Part 2: Tech Sucks The Soul Out Of The City” & “Homeless In Seattle, Part 1: High-Tech Harm The Homeless,” homelessness and extreme poverty in Seattle and beyond are helped along by Big-Tech’s non-stop importation of a feudal elite.

Homelessness and extreme poverty, enabled by the agents forenamed, also increase pollution:

In addition to the homeless who are living in tents on the sidewalk, Seattle is also dealing with an increasing number of people who are living in RVs. Because these people have no homes, they have nowhere to properly dump the sewage that accumulates in their vehicles. Instead, the waste gets dumped directly into storm drains that connect to waterways. Two business groups in the city have funded testing related to the dumping and reached some stunning results

Does the Left care? Of course not.

Seattle’s RV campers dump an estimated 1 million gallons of raw sewage into waterways per year.”

This is a keeper.

In defense of this poor, singularly charmless girl, Greta Thunberg’s facility with English and her terse, to-the-point compositional skills are way better than those of her “high-achieving,” verbally diarrhetic and ungrammatical American peers.

Growl on Grrreta.
