Last week, Trump stated “We have places in London and other places that are so radicalized that the police are afraid for their own lives.”
The Associated Press, NBC, CNN, and New York Times have stories on no-go zones dating back more than a decade, but have to pretend such zones don’t exist because a Republican is claiming that they do (and we don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings besides).
Similar claims of Muslim no-go zones have been made previously at Fox News, which was followed by various anchors apologizing from the backlash they faced.
It’s not like anyone is going to get an apology out of Trump if he was wrong, but in any case, he has nothing to apologize for. We have evidence of no-go zones from London’s police force themselves. One officer named Rob (last name withheld, probably to avoid backlash) came forward and spoke to LBC to corroborate Trump’s claims.
As LBC reports, “Regarding no-go areas in London, Rob added: “With gang crime in London, there are areas which you wouldn’t go into as a pair of cops in a car because of the fear of having things thrown at you when you’re driving through certain estates – bottles etc.
“There are areas when you have to be a little switched on about what’s happening in the world.”
Afterwards, (talk show host) Nick Ferrari commented: “Hang on a second, maybe there is something in what Donald Trump said. Police are being advised not to travel to and from work in their uniforms.
“So suddenly all this “How dare he say this about London” — well no, the Met Police accept it as well.
“I appreciate this isn’t radicalization. But certain estates they only go mob-handed – I don’t blame them for a second.
“So instead of all shrieking about Donald Trump, perhaps there is just something about what he says.”
There are plenty of things to attack Trump over. The fact that the media would deny the existence of no-go zones on which they themselves have reported in prior years goes to show the extent to which they’ll deceive. It would be one thing if this deception were used only to attack Republicans.
The larger issue is the fact that this deception and political correctness are exploited by our enemies to attack (and kill) us.
