The attacker has not been described in the media despite witnesses. This used to mean he was Muslim but now I think it applies to anyone in order to not lead the idea it was a Muslim, and to better deflate those of us that see the connection between Islam and motive if it is released later that he was not.
After all, the standards are, we have to be right 100% of the time and if we are wrong once, then they try and destroy our credibility.
In any case its noteworthy that a woman MP for Labour, the most muslim friendly political party in Western Europe outside actual sharia law parties, was shot and stabbed.
Then again, she is a woman.
A female Labour MP has been shot twice and stabbed by a man with a ‘makeshift gun’ as she met constituents in West Yorkshire.
Jo Cox, MP for Batley and Spen, was speaking to locals in Birstall near Leeds when she was savagely attacked.
The shocking incident took place near the town’s library where the 41-year-old politician held advice surgeries.
Those who saw the shocking incident said the mother-of-two was left ‘bleeding on the pavement’.
(Those who saw, but didnt report what the attacker looked like or more likely, it is not being reported)
The MP Jo Cox has been attacked at in her constituency in Birstall, Yorkshire. Here are the latest updates:
Jo Cox has been injured in an incident in her constituency, her team confirms
Attack involved shooting and stabbing
Some reports say it took place in her constituency office
But eyewitness says she was left lying bleeding on the pavement
Gunman is reported to be on the loose
Ms Cox is Labour MP for Batley and Spen
She attended the so-called “battle” on the Thames to protest EU fishing regulation on Wednesday
(“Gunman is on the loose” so the most important thing is not to describe him or else someone might catch him before he does more harm. Either that or the EU sent someone after her for her BREXIT stance)
A British member of parliament has been shot after a town hall meeting at a library.
Police said in a statement earlier that “a woman in her 40s” had “suffered serious injuries and is in a critical condition.” The British Press Association reported that the woman was Jo Cox, a Labour Party MP who is known for her work on Syria-related issues.
Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the Labour Party, tweeted that Cox was the victim in the attack. […]
A 52-year-old man was arrested near the shooting in Birstall, West Yorkshire, according to police. An eyewitness told Sky News that he saw a man in a baseball cap suddenly pull a gun from his bag.
Police presence in the area has been increased as a reassurance to the community.
The motives of the attacker are unknown at this stage.
There are unconfirmed reports that the attacker shouted “Britain first” before shooting. Brits will decide on June 23 whether or not to remain in the European Union, a divisive issue in the country.
(So now its about her being anti BREXIT. We all should have seen this coming)
Apparently it’s a right wing nut job.
If the shooter indeed shouted, “Britain first!” before attacking then this is probably the work of a real live extreme right-wing racist white guy. And if that’s the case, then the left will have a bloody field day advancing their anti-conservative, pro-Sharia agenda. How clever of Muhammad to set it up so they can achieve victory when they lose by claiming to be the victims and throwing the enemy into confusion.
Remember, to a real leftist, there is nothing in this world that is more evil or dangerous than a conservative. Leftists are trained from birth to view right wingers as purely evil, semi-mythical monsters who see a lake and want it covered with oil, who see a baby deer, and want to see it dead. To a leftist, the Jihadists sort of look like cool organic hippies with machine guns – kinda like the iconic picture of Che in the beret – while the conservatives, in their suits and ties, look like Richard Nixon and George HitlerBush. Given the choice, the average leftist would rather see the imposition of Sharia law than the return of Maggie Thatcher or the words of Milton Friedman.
Oh, then you ask them who the Prime Minister of Britain is and they look at you blankly because their minds are virtually empty… This could all end badly. Really…
looks like the “Britain First” report is untrue.
she died 17.10 gmt ” no shouts of Britain first were uttered tommy main the shooter he remained silent throughout the attack “
Leftards and their destructive policies create Breviks as a side product.
“Mair was quoted in the Huddersfield Daily Examiner in May 2010 in a story dealing with workers at a local park. The piece says he got the job after being referred by a local clinic for adults with mental health problems. He told the newspaper at the time:
I can honestly say it has done me more good than all the psychotherapy and medication in the world. Many people who suffer from mental illness are socially isolated and disconnected from society, feelings of worthlessness are also common mainly caused by long-term unemployment.
All these problems are alleviated by doing voluntary work. Getting out of the house and meeting new people is a good thing, but more important in my view is doing physically demanding and useful labour.
When you have finished there is a feeling of achievement which is emotionally rewarding and psychologically fulfilling. For people for whom full-time, paid employment is not possible for a variety of reasons, voluntary work offers a socially positive and therapeutic alternative.”
The left is going to have a field day with this one, they will spin it every way but what really happened.
Condolences to the family and to the British people.
http://www.thisdayinquotes.com/2011/04/now-he-belongs-to-ages-or-maybe-to.html?m=1 ends with an observation about the unknowability of history (especially reports of dramatic quotes).
This one is an own goal.
Jihadi gets jihadi-enabler.
Although this is a terrible attack, and I grieve for the family, I can’t help (God help me), making some observations.
1. Care in the community, the deadly obsessions of left wing/liberal psychiatrists/psychologists, with letting the deranged out on the streets, dovetailing nicely with the Thatcherite obsession with the destruction of state run enterprises, means that there are more dangerous nuts than ever before loose on the streets. That’s just the home grown ones, not counting the people we are importing.
2. Don’t the left, whom this unfortunate woman is a representative of, condone violence when it meets their world view?
Where’s the excuses this time: it was poverty, it was the growing inequality gap, it was the fault of the British Empire. If some palestinian blows themselves up in a cafe in tel-aviv, aren’t we supposed to understand the forces outside there control that drove them to it? I don’t get the narrative here though. What I do get is the lack of puzzlement over motive; unlike the attack on the gay night club in Florida, where we see puzzled officials stunned and confused by his motives, here there seems to be an immediate assumption. Is it only Islamic murderers who get to be so sophisticated in there motives?
3. This woman, like lots of people, (not only celebrities), had been threatened, stalked before I believe. Lots of people are, and no small number are killed by the obsessive nut jobs.
I’m guessing this woman would have been against the ownership of guns by the citizenry of this country. Well, there’s the rub, if you are confronted by a man with a firearm, you are doomed. For the greater good though, right? Guess the strict firearm laws, didn’t affect his thinking.
4. Leftwing liberals tend to be against the death penalty, because we must always understand motives,and be fair, and everyone’s a victim, etc etc etc.
If this was the thirties, this guy would be have had his trial, appeal, and execution within a couple of months, as a warning to others, he’d have been executed while the crime was fresh in people’s minds.
Welcome to the world we’ve made for ourselves.
Still, horrible crime though, poor woman.
Well said, Blindguard.
