The time for Tea Lights and Hashtags is over

tea lights and hashtags

Another terrorist attack in London. More bodies broken and dead.

And the Hashtag Rapid Response Team is on the case.

Because apparently in the West today, a syrupy hashtag delivered with pinpoint accuracy is the best defense against Islamist terror.

I mean, it’s worked so well thus far, hasn’t it?

The Westminster attack was March 22. And Manchester was two months later.

Now, not even two weeks after Manchester more blood is in the streets – more families devastated.

At some point, action becomes necessary.

You don’t go into battle armed with tea lights and hashtags.

Not when your enemy is using vehicles, knives, and bombs.

The truth is, in a situation like this, anger is your best armor.

Get angry. Stay angry.

Because politicians don’t give a tinker’s fart about tea lights and hashtags.

And neither do the terrorists.

Our elected leaders will do nothing until people are angry enough to demand action.

It used to be when something terrible happened, the most basic human reaction was “Don’t just stand there! Do something!”

Now, the reaction is “Don’t rush to conclusions! Tweet a hashtag!”

That’s why wilting Liberals melted down yesterday when Donald Trump’s reaction to the London Bridge attack was to call for action.

And for this, he was attacked.

One particularly noxious response came from a “journalist” from CNN:

Yes, how dare the President of the United States demand action in this war against Western Civilization? How dare he tell the UK that we will be there?!

What kind of embarrassment to humankind is he?!

Doesn’t President Trump know that now is the time for tea lights and hashtags?

What Commander-in-Chief would even dream of doing his job at a time like this?

It’s as if we live in Upside-Downy World.

And this CNN “journalist” directs his anger not at the creatures who committed this barbaric attack, but at President Trump for wanting to do something to stop them.

Fortunately, there are some in Britain who are grateful for those who know tea lights and hashtags aren’t enough.

How many people have to die before those whose job it is to keep us safe actually do something to keep us safe?

Never in the history of mankind has an aggressor waged war against those so oblivious to the fact that they are at war.

The only “phobia” that is leading to the slaughter of innocents is what I call “Offendophobia” – this irrational fear of offending Islamists.

And because so many are paralyzed by Offendophobia, they cringe in horror when someone calls for action.

I grieve for the families of those lost last night. And I empathize with the fear and confusion many in London are feeling today.

But the time for tea lights and hashtags is over.

Leaders must step up and do as they are charged to do – protect and defend their people.

I’ll close with a portion of Katie Hopkins’ column in this morning’s Daily Mail:

If this is terror losing, I don’t think victory matters. It is time to fight back.
Before the Bank Holiday weekend Mark Rowley, the UK’s most senior counter-terrorism officer suggested they’d rounded up much of the Manchester bomber’s ‘network’ and advised us all to: ‘Go out and enjoy yourselves.’
Well that’s exactly what the victims of last night’s attack were doing. Enjoying the multicultural heart of London, drinking and eating. Right up until someone stormed into the restaurant and stabbed them in the face with a 12-inch hunting knife.
We can’t just respond again by organising a benefit concert and waiting for a sympathetic world to light up its landmarks in red, white and blue. We, the British people, the good people of Britain, need to stand united in demanding drastic measures.

This war against the West has been raging for years.

Isn’t it time we put down the tea lights and hashtags and got into the fight?

    The unadulterated hate directed at President Trump on the “Twitter sewer” (as Rush calls it) confirms that we will have to fight our way out of this madness with the Left. They are a brainwashed coalition who will never be willing to stop at just him. We are next, and I will relish this with great vehement. I am official sick of these individuals.

    Sorry, Katie Hopkins, but it ain’t going to happen. Mayor “Khan’t” is a tool, but the PM offers nothing, either. In her statement published in the press, she says, “It is time to say enough is enough. Everybody needs to go about their lives as they normally would. Our society should continue to function in accordance with our values. But when it comes to taking on extremism and terrorism, things need to change…While we have made significant progress in recent years there is, to be frank, far too much tolerance of extremism in our country. So we need to become far more robust in identifying it and stamping it out – across the public sector and across society. That will require some difficult and often embarrassing conversations, but the whole of our country needs to come together to take on this extremism.” “Enough is enough” and “too much tolerance of extremism” sound great, but not when followed by “require some difficult and often embarrassing conversations.” WTH is that? More talk? She was Home Secretary for six years (a lot of responsibility for the current state of affairs in Britain falls on her) and now as the PM her best answer is we need to have “conversations.” Bloody Hell!

    “One particularly noxious response came from a Muslim “journalist” from CNN:” Fixed.

    In a 2013 interview with WNYC host Brian Lehrer, Aslan said: “…I’m definitely a Muslim and Sufism is the tradition within Islam that I most closely adhere to.”
