Earlier today, a British soldier by the name of Lee Rigby was hacked to death by a pair of Islamic extremists in the streets of South-East London. I cannot begin to express the stomach-churning horror I felt upon seeing this news. And why does the Woolwich Attack have a specific type of significance compared to other knife crimes in the city? Several reasons:
The Woolwich Attack was an attack on a member of the Armed Forces – a man who dedicated his life to protecting this country – by a pair of twisted, evil individuals who are a product of the preaching hatred that has been ALLOWED to run amok in this country. Does no one else feel utter astonishment at the fact that our borders have been opened up to extremists who, for years now, have been given the freedom to drill into the heads of mindless saps why they must ‘destroy the west and kill all the people inside it’? Is no one else amazed that these incredibly dangerous people were not shipped off at the first sign of the dangers they posed to society? Above all, when you reach right down to the core, is anyone really shocked that such a distressing, horrendous thing has happened today? We talk of ticking time bombs and this is one such bomb that was set to explode when those in power showed just how weak they truly are when they refused to protect this country and allowed these parasites to thrive. The left-wing government allowed this hatred in; they allowed it to fester and grow and spread through the country like poison. These disgusting individuals with their extreme views and their vile methods have already displayed how uncivilized they are in other parts of the world. Now, because of weak leadership from our government, they have been given the opportunity to exercise their beliefs and contempt for the country inside our own borders, and in the most horrifying way possible – a brutal, violent murder on a British soldier, a man who loved his country enough to live his life protecting it, who stares proudly into the camera in the photo, proud to be a member of our armed forces. How ironic that the country he lived and died for should fail to protect him, for he didn’t die outside our borders, but on our very streets. He didn’t die protecting our land – he died at the hands of those who were granted the freedom to access this land by the people in power who clearly didn’t have the foresight to see the long-term damage that would occur … or else, didn’t care enough to act. Were this 1939, it would have been a bit like handing Hitler a gun and saying, “Come in, Adolf, kill who you want and take what you want.” Sounds obscene, doesn’t it? But there’s not much difference between that and the preachy extremists who have been given their freedom of speech – the freedom to teach people how to hate and commit murder on innocent people. Have we really become so ‘civilized’ that we can allow such a lack of civilization on our streets?
Furthermore, this horrendous human being (and I use this term loosely) then tried to justify his reasons for the Woolwich Attack – he had the audacity to try and speak in a reasonable way into the camera:
“I apologize that women had to witness this today, but in our land our women have to see the same … You people will never be safe – remove your government, they don’t care about you!“
How sickening that such people exist. It is degrading for me to even attempt to counter these words. I shall simply say that this is the result of low intelligence+brainwashing+evil. He is right about one thing though: we will never be safe from evil beings such as him as long as our government do not fulfill their duty by protecting the people and removing this hatred from the system. As well as this, this mindless killer does not sound like someone fresh off the boat from ‘his country’, wherever that may be; his accent is of one who has undoubtedly been here for a number of years. It would be no surprise if it came to light that this is a person who has leeched off the system, received housing and job benefits from taxpayers – and, after being shot by the police who unfortunately failed to silence him for good, was then treated by the NHS, the National Health Service which is paid for by the taxpayer. The magnitude of this outrageous, ridiculous system is colossal and the facts speak for themselves. The barbaric murderer with the blood of an innocent man on his hands hates this country, yet lives in this country and is paid money to live, eat and breathe by those of us who pay our taxes; he then kills a soldier of the army in cold blood and is then TREATED by our National Health Service, which we also pay for. Is no one else appalled and disgusted by this utter shambles of a system, a system that was created by the left-wingers all those years ago and doomed to fail from the start?
What a shame that the crowds of people who witnessed the Woolwich Attack did not band together and try and stop these aggressors from fulfilling their sick intentions. But understandably people were afraid and men were threatened to stay back – it is wishful thinking to believe that everyone could have banded together to save this man’s life. But we have been taught to conform, to stand and watch, to record videos and take pictures with our phones and cameras; the ‘bystander effect’ truly took effect today and it’s times like this that I wish human nature would show the best of itself, by banding together and preventing a tragic event such as this. But that is wishful thinking; changing out mindsets can only occur within the status quo when we change our leaders – cowardly leaders produce societies that are afraid to act. Aside from this gruesome attack, another disturbing factor is the amount of racism that will occur in days to come. Your Average Joe is going to look at what happened today and think, “Muslims. They’re evil. Get them out.” As is always the case with unintelligent people, they will fail to recognize that evil comes in all shapes, sizes, colours and religions. That all shapes, sizes, colours and religions have their good and bad and that there are a number of peaceful Muslims out there. But this is the hard fact: Islam is not a religion of peace. That number of peaceful Muslims, large or small, are essentially irrelevant, for they must keep quiet; but their peacefulness cannot deter attention away from the countless Muslims who follow the ways of their prophet and inflict cruelty and murder everywhere they go. Throughout the Middle East, extremist Jihads run rife, enforcing their rules upon all they come into contact with and beheading Christians and other minorities in their hundreds, claiming to do it by the will of Allah. Since when did the will of any God advocate the evil slaughter of a human being, simply because his belief differs from the perpetrator’s and, most disturbingly, how can such backward barbaric practices be allowed to spread far and wide in the ‘civilized’ societies we strive for today? They are a threat to our society, way of living and to our very lives. The politically correct brigade condemn anyone who speaks the truth in the matter, but it is their exact type of attitude that has helped result in the murder of our soldier today. One of the biggest evils and threats we face are Islamic extremists, who at heart are no different to the Nazis of WWII, and the sooner our weak-willed politicians realize this and stop faffing around with stealing expenses, the sooner we can eliminate this problem. I can see racial tensions at an all-time high after this; isn’t it ironic that this has all been born from the liberals, whose goal was to create racial harmony?
Yes, I am angry. I am infuriated that a man who lived to protect our island has died in such a senseless attack and killed by people who have no respect for this country, who feel such a burning hatred for us and our ideals, who have taken advantage to the point of now spilling the blood of a British soldier. The Woolwich Attack only proves one thing and if you are a Member of Parliament, then sit up in your comfortable, cosy little chair and listen – These extremists are a danger to the people. They are taking the piss out of our country and they are now murdering good men who risk their lives to protect us. You have failed to protect him today; how many more have to die before you sit up and actually act on this cancer that has spread throughout our island?
Years ago, Churchill and all the brave members of the army, RAF and navy stopped invasion by the Nazis; before this, Napoleon tried to conquer Britain and failed; going even further back, Elizabeth 1st defeated the Spanish Armada and subsequently prevented Spain from invading. Have we really broken the flow of history now by allowing people with just as much hatred and resentment as previous foes to walk freely in our country and spread their dissent and cruelty throughout our streets? Have we allowed ourselves to be invaded, thanks to lily-livered politicians who are scared of their own shadows and given freedom of speech to those who would use it as a weapon to destroy this country? Where is the British fighting spirit? Stand up and be proud of this country and all those who have died for us, no matter what race or religion you are; remember a good man who died today because there are those out there who hate this island and want to cause her harm. The tolerance we have shown for these extremists is over, for where was their tolerance when they mercilessly beheaded one of our soldiers? Wake up and act – our government have failed in their duty, but that doesn’t mean we have to.
