Comments on: Europe’s got its own Donald Trumps http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2015/12/10/europes-got-its-own-donald-trumps/ Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Murfalad http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2015/12/10/europes-got-its-own-donald-trumps/#comment-1128646 Thu, 03 Mar 2016 09:31:09 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/?p=45254#comment-1128646 “Thus was a nation united in condemnation of violence, bigotry and Trump.” No, this was the response from our moribund political process, with our 1st past the post system and closed media large sections of society are not represented in politics at all.

A large proportion of the UK Muslim population support Sharia law, there are 1000’s of Sharia courts already in the country (reported by the Independent) and 1000’s have voluntarily left everything they own and everyone they know to go to a foreign country to fight for a barbaric and depraved Islamic organisation. To say that we do not have a growing problem in Europe is wishful thinking of the worst kind, but when our democratic institutions are so degraded and free speech denied that is the result we get.

they may both stink because of their failings but the american system allows change and (normally) free open discussion – indeed the stink is part of the system – like the steaming sewers in crtime movies

the results and details of the tyranny and terrorism imposed in muslim countries aren’t allowed to be aired – rotten justice systems and the acceptance of religious interference in politics assure this

the fears being exploited by trump are genuine enough and soundly based – the reaction of the self-styled liberal establishment perhaps a knee-jerk response to someone else exposing the murder & intolerance of islam that the liberals chose to ignore

But perhaps Journalism is not supposed to relate to facts any more…
