Even a broken clock is right twice a day. Ever since Piers Morgan left CNN, in which the twilight of his time there was pushing anti-gun trash, he’s defended President Trump from the sheer hypocritical attacks the Left has hurled at him, specifically the criticisms surrounding the UK visit that is currently underway; Trump was not invited to address Westminster. Morgan is also not a fan of political correctness, trashing Gillette’s latest string of social justice warrior ads as trash. Yes, he’s right about that too.
Morgan is known for his intense and, at times, biting swipes at those who try to troll him. On that, he earns my respect; he takes it as much as he dishes it. With President Trump eating at Buckingham Palace with Queen Elizabeth as we speak, London Mayor Sadiq Khan, who is anti-Trump, was the target of Morgan’s op-ed in the Daily Mail, where he took Khan to the woodshed over his antics over the president’s visit. In short, Morgan called Khan a little pipsqueak for acting like a brat towards the UK’s oldest and most critical allies. It’s also the 75thanniversary of the D-Day landings, but that does not go through the minds of many on the anti-Trump Left (via Daily Mail):
So how has Mayor of London, England’s capital city, responded to this trip?
The answer is with quite staggeringly offensive rudeness.
Sadiq Khan, who’s been Mayor for three years, launched a series of savage attacks on President Trump in the past 48 hours, both in print and on television, branding him a ‘fascist’, a ‘growing global threat’, and demanding Britain should not be ‘rolling out the red carpet’ for him because it was ‘un-British’, adding that he was ‘the antithesis of our values in London and as a country’ and his ‘divisive behavior flies in the face of the ideals America was founded upon – equality, liberty and religious freedom.’
Mayor Khan also authorized, again, the flying of a giant orange Trump baby blimp over the Houses of Parliament during the visit, specifically designed to mock and humiliate the President.
By doing all this, Khan knew exactly what he was doing, and that was to create a firestorm of hatred towards the American leader and to whip up bigger protests against him than might otherwise have occurred.
Khan himself, without any apparent self-awareness, accused Trump of ‘childish insults’.
Yes, the man who approved a giant baby blimp of the U.S. President to fly over Parliament is accusing his target of being childish!
Of course, Khan knew exactly how Trump would respond, which is why he has spent the past two days attacking, mocking and goading him.
Now, I fully accept those are all things that could rightly be said about Trump himself from time to time.
But that doesn’t make it OK for us to behave the same way or to treat the leader of our greatest ally with such wanton disdain in such a momentous week.
There’s also a sickening hypocrisy underpinning their treatment of Trump, and not just because there were comparatively very limited protests – and no baby blimps – for previous state visits by leaders of Saudi Arabia, Russia and China.
(Is Trump really worse than Putin, Mohammad bin Salman or President Xi?)
Sadiq Khan, as a human rights lawyer in a previous career, once passionately defended notorious Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, who has denounced white people as ‘devils’, described Jews as ‘bloodsuckers’ and called Hitler a ‘very great man’.
Of course, this was probably expected since the Left had gone insane over this man leading the free world. It’s driven them to create, peddle, and convince themselves that there was Russian collusion. It’s pathetic. On top of that, the Democrats are lurching further to the Left on guns, abortion, and have adopted a full-blown socialist identity because, well, if only Hillary were that way she would’ve won. That’s precisely wrong. So, endure the protests fellow Trump supporters. It may be maddening seeing these pieces of Eurotrash slam Trump, but we’ll get through it.
