Muslim man Sadiq Khan is the new Muslim Mayor of London and its many Muslims. If you think I’m repeating the word Muslim too much, go complain to the liberal press who can’t stop mentioning his religion in an orgy of self-congratulatory tolerance lather. He’s a Muslim and he’s the Mayor of London, world peace achieved!!!!
But this new Muslim Mayor has a Muslim message to Donald Trump about Muslims: Let them in. You see, Donald Trump suggested Khan would be an exception this “no Muslims” rule, and Khan is offering his reply. But not to worry. He is not threatening America, see, he’s just observing something factual. The sky is blue, he says, and Islam will attack you.
Hey don’t blame me for the message, it’s straight from London’s brand new Muslim Mayor.
Donald Trump’s ignorant view of Islam could make both our countries less safe – it risks alienating mainstream Muslims around the world and plays into the hands of the extremists. Donald Trump and those around him think that western liberal values are incompatible with mainstream Islam – London has proved him wrong.
It makes us less safe, he says, by alienating and playing into the hands of extremists. Let’s put that in American, eh what old chap? He’s saying that if Trump bans Muslim immigration, “extreme” Muslims will retaliate, and “mainstream” Muslims will be fine with that.
That’s a warning alright. You might ask why Sadiq Khan is so certain that Muslims would resort to violence in the face of a policy they don’t like? Is he Islamophobic? Another good question would be why does the Muslim Mayor of London think the United States has to accommodate people who are “extreme”? Or, why, if this demographic of which he speaks is so prepared to make the U.K. and the U.S. unsafe, should the solution be to invite them over for tea and crumpets? Isn’t that counter-intuitive? All good questions.
If someone says “open this door or I’m going to kick it down” they probably shouldn’t be on your Christmas card list, you know what I’m saying?
Trump’s plan is bluster. There’s no DNA test for religion. You can’t keep an extremist out by asking “are you an extremist” on an immigration form. It’s just fanciful talk from a blowhard who wants to stir up a rabid base. But his mouth has written a check that Sadiq Khan is now cashing. The new Muslim mayor gets to appeal to his Muslim base, appease the terrorists (which is basically the U.K.’s national policy), AND appeal to his left-wing tolerance-junkie voters. A win, win, win for Khan and the New York Times.
Man, Trump sure is a master of the deal, eh? Really knows how to play those chess pieces amirite?
