Ordinary people are fuming.
Ordinary, decent, down home Mom and Pop types are frightened and fed up.
In Britain and France, in the United States and Germany, in Scandinavian and Low Countries, in Spain and Italy ordinary, quiet citizens are angry and afraid.
Check out this article reporting on the huge swing towards a new right wing party in Britain. The UKIP (United Kingdom Independent Party) will win its first parliamentary seat with a massive swing towards a candidate who switched from the conservatives to UKIP. The polls say immigration is the big issue.
Ordinary people are afraid of the immigrants who have swept into their countries. They see how many of them are Muslims and they hear the threats from ISIS saying “We will attack Europe. We will attack the USA. We will drown you in your own blood.” Ordinary folks hear the threats and they believe them and they are frightened.
Ordinary people don’t want to be racist, but they also don’t see why their country should be over run by people who care nothing for their culture, their history or their religion. Indeed, many of them now believe the immigrants are there to destroy their culture and country—and them.
In Britain they read about a child sex abuse ring in which girls were sold into sex slavery, abused, tortured, raped and imprisoned.

Let’s also imagine that he is a hardliner on immigration and terror. He’ll say, “We welcome immigrants, this nation was made great by immigrants, but we’ll welcome them on our terms, not theirs. We’ll secure our borders and welcome them in an orderly fashion helping them to integrate to our society for their own benefit and for ours.”
He’ll say about the Muslim threat, “These people are clearly barbarians. They openly threaten us. We will use the might of our armed forces. We do have a strategy. It is a sustained, effective and long term plan to eliminate the threat of radical Islam from the world to make the world a safe place for all the majority of decent people of all religions.”
Would not such a man be welcomed by a huge crowd of ordinary people who are fuming and frightened?
What worries me is that such a person–so intent on bringing order, safety and peace, will also not mind bringing “increased security” at home. Continue Reading
