I remember cycling through the streets of South London on that blood-soaked day five years ago when Lee Rigby was killed. Riot vans screamed and hurtled past me. I’d no idea what was going on. It wasn’t until I got home that I saw there was an attempt at a beheading on the streets of South London, which explained the riot vans. I was traumatized, along with any other normal and sane human being who watched the murder unfold. The raised and bloodied hands of the devout Muslim who tried to behead Lee. The knife. The interview he gave.
I watched the news very closely in the ensuing days and shook my head with disbelief at the falsehoods that were being spread by the media and other Muslims. They were saying things like, “The killers were not true Muslims,” and that the killers’ motivations were a “misinterpretation of a beautiful religion.” All of this nonsense spouted by media and politicians alike. It was as though they were reading off a script. Lee’s killers had been mobile in Woolwich and their associates were still on the streets. Questions had to be answered, and there were more jihadists to be rounded up. I expected people to demand answers and not rest until we had them, but instead there was some graffiti sprayed here, some name-calling occurring there, and life carried on as usual.
I never expected to see the likes of it again, not on a UK street in broad daylight, but we’ve had less public beheadings in London since then, as well as car jihads and random, multiple stabbings. After each Islamic terrorist atrocity, I keep wondering, WHAT will tip the scales? We are becoming inured to terrorism and bloodshed. Terror attacks are as normal an event as a clock ticking in the UK today. And after each one, we have the moronic lefties spouting utter nonsense such as, “We Londoners will carry on as normal.” Well, of course we will. What else can we do? We aren’t all going to carry out a mass exodus of the city or lock ourselves indoors. But how about the illogical left start thinking of ways to thwart jihadists and extremists, instead of stepping aside and letting them carry on with their barbaric ways?
What will make the people rise up out of their armchairs and realise that hashtags and candles and politicians aren’t fixing the problem? I was still wondering what the tipping point would be until Saturday, 26th May, 2018, when I went to a Free Tommy rally outside of 10 Downing Street. Tommy Robinson is the answer to my question. Tommy Robinson’s well-being will be the tipping point in the UK for authorities, police and politicians, and if they’re smart they’ll take notice of this. The energy and the passion at Downing Street and the anger was palpable at the doorstep of our current MP’s offices. There was a line-up of about 5 right-leaning MPs and others lined up to address the crowd and put forward their own opinions and inform and motivate us. But the crowd was not in a mood to listen, not even to people who are on our side. The consensus seemed to be that enough talking had been done. It was now time for action, and we had all the motivation that we needed – Tommy’s well-being – and we wanted the parliamentarians to be sure they heard us, so we shouted as loud as we could.
