Not recognizing heroism, or noble deeds leads, eventually to punishing heroism, such a society is doomed
A man famously lauded as a “hero” in 2017 for fighting off terrorists on the London Bridge has been forced by British authorities to attend “de-radicalization” classes “over fears he may become extremist” after being stabbed eight times, British papers reported.
Forty-nine-year-old Roy Larner became known as the “Lion of London Bridge” after three Jihadis in a van plowed into a crowd of people on London Bridge before stalking from building to building, killing seven people and eventually reaching the Black and Blue pub where Larner was drinking with friends.
He should be honored and celebrated, and, frankly emulated. At first, he was
“They had these long knives and started shouting about Allah. Then it was, ‘Islam, Islam, Islam,’” Larner said. “Like an idiot I shouted back at them … I took a few steps towards them and said, ‘Fuck you, I’m Millwall,’” he said, referring to his favorite soccer team.
He fought them off with his bare fists, sustaining serious stab wounds all over his body but allowing dozens of other patrons to escape.
But, the times, they are a changing, for the worse
Larner has now been added to a terrorist watchlist know as Britain’s “Prevent” program after fears he could become an anti-Islam extremist, the Sun reported Monday.
Ah, he might engage in wrong think now, so, re-education camp for him. Given how England is changing, this should sicken, but not surprise decent people
In the city of Rotherham, more than 1,500 British children were allegedly sexually abused by hundreds of mainly Pakistani men over a period of decades as authorities did little in part because of “fear of being thought as racist,” according to in independent government review of police conduct. U.K. Home Secretary Sajid Javid said he would probe the “cultural drivers” behind grooming gangs, but police in the city of Northumbria said they could track down anyone who posts “offensive” comments about grooming gangs and prosecute them.
Under London Mayor Sadiq Khan, police have confiscated cultlery and common tools like screwdrivers from citizens, saying they are used by gangs as weapons. In Scotland, a man was arrested for having a potato peeler.
Pray for England, and the UK, pray earnestly people. The path they have chosen leads to, well you know. Leftism destroys everything it touches, everything. The UK has been reduced to a nation that bans firearms for citizens, and is now coming for knives as well. It has been reduced to coddling Jihadists and violent criminals. All while increasingly punishing self-defense. The UK has forgotten one very simple truth. Rewarding bad behavior while punishing the good does not change bad people into good people.
