Oh NO! Trump is taking an aggressive stance against Terrorists!
Rev. Peter Mullen responds to the BBC’s hand-wringing over the appointment of Gen. Flynn:
General Michael Flynn has been offered the post of national security adviser in Donald Trump’s administration. Flynn is a senior intelligence officer and during the election campaign he was vociferous in his denunciation of Hillary Clinton, even leading the chants for her to be locked up.
He is also a long-standing critic of Obama’s military policies – or what he regards as the lack of them. In particular he has called for a fiercer response to Islamic State.
He is on record as having said, “It’s rational to fear Muslims.” On the BBC’s Today Programme, the presenter Nick Robinson described Flynn’s statement as “controversial.”
So that’s the BBC’s assessment of what counts as controversial!
How so when for decades Muslims have been shooting, bombing, dispossessing and otherwise terrorising people in large numbers on three continents?
But the left wing establishment – that politically correct amalgamation of politicians, senior churchmen and huge sections of the media – insists that we shouldn’t notice the slaughter. As a priest in the Church of England, I wish we would adopt the attitude and policies of some of our best forebears.

Some of your best forbears? Of whom does he speak? England’s own KINGS have gone to war… Lead the battle, even, in the European pushback and response to Islamic Empire Building. Is THAT the example he means? We call those the Crusades, but people forget that they were more a response than an aggression.
Which ‘Best forbears’ do you mean? Surely we could agree to include Winston Churchill among them? Is that fair?
Becuase Churchill had something to say about Islam:
Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities. Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the Queen: all know how to die: but the influence of the religion paralyzes the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytising faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science—the science against which it had vainly struggled—the civilisation of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilisation of ancient Rome.
And about the ideology itself:
How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedanism law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property–either as a child, a wife, or a concubine — must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men. —Breitbart
Maybe he’s more inclined to siding with OTHER English forbears. Maybe people like Neville Chamberlin, with that very ‘valuable’ piece of paper and his announcement that he’d spoken with a foreigner and was promised we could have ‘peace in our time’.
Actually… that seems about right.
How HISTORY will judge this preference, we shall see. As for the rest of us, we have greater confidence in the judgment of SIR Winston Churchill than the disgraced Mr. Chamberlain.
LET Europe whine and grovel before those who would gladly conquer and destroy them.
America has OTHER Plans.
