The victim was a Guardian reading middle class liberal who died because of his own values.— MorgothLives (@LivesMorgoth) November 30, 2019
Now Guardian writers come and pretend that those ideals are some how noble and weighty, they aren't.
These people are becoming more fatalistic death cult than political philosophy https://t.co/hKqCiTrWSR
The symbolism of what happened in the attack yesterday on London Bridge is just unbelievable. A White man who was convicted killer and a group of other criminals going through a prison rehabilitation course chased down and subdued the Islamic terrorist. Unlike the common criminal, it was the jihadist alien who was granted a second chance who was irredeemable.
“LONDON—A frenzied knife attack by a known terrorist who was let out of prison early on parole was halted by a posse of Londoners that included a convicted killer on day release. …
A man named James Ford grabbed one of the terrorist’s knives and carried it to safety, staggering south across the bridge away from the melee and warning clueless pedestrians to back away from a potential explosion.
As cell-phone footage spread across social media and onto global news networks, the man was labelled a hero. Some of those watching the video, however, were appalled by what they saw.
Angela Cox, 65, received a phone call from police liaison officers telling her to switch on the TV. She thought the man who had disarmed the terrorist was still in prison.
Ford had been convicted of the brutal murder of her niece in 2004. He approached the 21-year-old, who was said to have the mental age of a 15-year-old, in an area of woodland and slit her throat. The judge at the time said: “What you did was an act of wickedness. You clearly have an interest in the macabre and also an obsession with death including murder by throat cutting.” …
The judge said Khan, who was just 19 at the time, was one of the ringleaders of a small British terror network that followed the teachings of U.S.-born Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula propagandist Anwar al-Awlaki. …”
Usman Khan killed Jack Merritt who was his instructor in the deradicalization course. Khan was a personal friend of Anjem Choudary. He was yet another “lion out of a cage.” He should have been behind bars for all these things trying to kill Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
“ISIS has tonight claimed the London Bridge terror attack was carried out by one of its fighters.
The terrorist organisation said Usman Khan, 28, who killed two and injured several more when he went on a knife rampage in central London yesterday, acted on their behalf.
The group, however, did not provide any evidence this is the case as it made the claim through its news agency.
It added that the attack was made in response to Islamic State calls to target countries that have been part of a coalition fighting the jihadist group. …
The attacker, who was jailed in 2012 for his role in an al Qaeda-inspired terror group that plotted to bomb the London Stock Exchange, had first been tackled and disarmed by a group of brave bystanders on the bridge.
Jack Merritt, 25, from Cottenham, was today named by his father as one of two victims killed by Khan at a prisoner rehabilitation conference at Fishmongers’ Hall, where the attack began yesterday afternoon.
Mr Merritt was the course co-ordinator for Learning Together, an education scheme run by the University of Cambridge’s Institute of Criminology that killer Khan had attended on Friday.
The group had been hosting a conference at the Grade II-listed building when the attack began, with Khan one of the former criminals attending the rehabilitation seminar for prisoners.
Mr Merritt’s father David said in a tweet that his son ‘would not wish his death to be used as the pretext for more draconian sentences or for detaining people unnecessarily’.
‘R.I.P. Jack: you were a beautiful spirit who always took the side of the underdog.’ …
According to the Learning Together schedule of the day, Khan began his terror spree during the storytelling and creative writing session.
The 28-year-old attacker is understood to have been invited to share his experience of prison and wore black clothing and sand-coloured boots, according to The Times.
A witness named Coralie said around 100 guests and 50 staff were in attendance.
Khan returned to the hall via the grand staircase after the morning session where he later threatened to blow up the hall, a member of staff said.
He reportedly started ‘lashing out’ in a room downstairs and was heading upstairs when he was tackled by the other conference-goers and ‘bundled out’ of the front door past a room of unarmed people. …
Khan had previously been arrested on December 20, 2010, four days before he and his nine-strong Al-Qaeda-inspired gang had planned to plant a bomb in the toilets of the London Stock Exchange.
After arresting Khan’s gang, police found a handwritten list of targets which included the U.S. Embassy and the homes of London Mayor Boris Johnson, the Dean of St Paul’s Cathedral and two rabbis. …”
Jack Merritt, the Guardian-reading liberal, was a victim of the diversity he championed:
Will Britain learn anything about the nexus of liberalism, mass immigration, multiculturalism, political correctness and terrorism from this episode? It is highly doubtful.
