In the post from a couple nights ago discussing the most recent insurgency attacks in London, I specifically mentioned London mayor Sadiq Khan, stating:
“Also of note, in the piece from the BBC above I can’t help but notice the statement from Sadiq Khan that it was a ‘deliberate and cowardly attack’. Its very ambiguous because he’s not coming out and saying it was ‘wrong’, or ‘evil’. Instead the ambiguity suggests that he could think it was okay, if it had been done different, or that he is at least sympathetic to it.”
Interestingly, I wasn’t the only to notice Khan’s words, as President Trump threw out several tweets highlighting Khan’s response as well.
At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is "no reason to be alarmed!"

Trump’s tweet elicited immediate outrage from the Suicidalist European media. They hailed it as inappropriate, ‘Islamophobic’, and (in the most ironic of all their denunciations) “an insult to the United Kingdom”.
Trump doubled down though, and sent out another tweet in the same vein soon after.
Pathetic excuse by London Mayor Sadiq Khan who had to think fast on his "no reason to be alarmed" statement. MSM is working hard to sell it!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 5, 2017
The mainstream media is of course 180* backwards in its thinking. Some members of their ilk are brainwashed, and some are just liars, but the idea that its illogical to assume Sadiq Khan may have mixed feelings about the attack is ridiculous.
Trump’s tweets- if you take them at face value rather than interpreting them coded messages or ‘dog whistling’- are also incorrect though.
Kkan isn’t being ‘weak’, or ‘pathetic’, and he is not ‘making excuses’. I think Trump knows this too and is just attacking Khan in a moderately un-PC way (rather than fully un-PC and actually stating Khan sympathizes with the attackers), but I think it is important to outline the actual way that Khan really does view such incidents.
I think its likely that most people reading this share my perspective on this, but for the benefit of anyone else, and just for the sake of honestly and to call a spade a spade, I want to explain the way I believe Sadiq Khan truly views these attacks.
To that end I have written out below 1) what I think Khan would have told those Muslim attackers had he had a chance to speak with them beforehand, and 2) what I actually think he believes. I don’t think my attempt makes him look like an ‘evil’ or ‘bad’ person either, but rather what he actually is- a member of a completely different shared honor group than the British people who shares no common interests with them and is- for all intents and purposes- part of a separate ‘tribe’ that is at war with them, and engaged in what is accurately now being called (by some) an ‘insurgency’.
What Sadiq Khan Really Thinks
The below is my attempt at channeling what Sadiq Khan would have said to the attackers from the other night’s attack if he could have somehow magically spoken to them beforehand, with completely privacy (not in his official capacity as Mayor of London obviously).
I understand you have resolved to go forward with this attack. While I will attempt to dissuade you, I acknowledge the bravery and goodness in your souls from which the desire springs. Allah- through his Messenger Muhammed (PBUH)- commanded us to wage war against the infidels. The kifayat al-jihad (offensive jihad) is demanded of us, so that we can bring the glory of Allah and the peace of the Sharia across the world.
Your plans to attack the kafirs and die shahid are noble but they are un-needed. Victory over them is already within our grasp. Look around you- we are taking over this country already. Our people are outbreeding the native citizens at an astounding pace, we are seizing more and more political power, and they have embraced an insane ideology in which they are literally helping us take power over them!
I understand your anger. The crusaders have invaded our lands and slaughtered our people for over a thousand years. Many of those who will be your victims likely had brothers and fathers who murdered Muslims in Iraq and Afghanistan. But Allah commanded us to be merciful. The poor kafirs already lead lives of emptiness and degeneracy. They are a part of Dar al-Harb (the ‘world of chaos’), but we will soon bring them into submission, and when the United Kingdom is fully Muslim and under the Sharia they will be part of Dar al-Islam (the ‘world of peace’), where they will no longer suffer from their actions that go in the face of God.
To murder the kafirs in the streets would not only be distasteful and cruel, but may harm our mission and make the Islamization of the country less likely. While the vast majority of the native citizens are cowards, and their ranks are filled with alcoholics and prostitutes, every violent attack and bombing makes it that much more likely some number of men will arise from within their ranks and fight back.
We are within sight of having full power over this country. It is likely that a Muslim will be Prime Minister within the next 10-15 years at the latest. By that point our young men will be of greater numbers than theirs, we will still be having far more children than them, and the country’s future course will be set. We will bring tremendous glory to God by taking this great historic bastion of the Crusaders, and in so doing will be that much closer to making the entire world Dar al-Islam.
While I really do think the above is what Khan would have said to the attackers (and I think its a pretty generous estimation of that too, others would attribute complete support of the attacks to him), I think his thoughts are probably a little more complicated.
From spending a lot of time reading about him, I think Khan likely does think positively about some aspects of British culture. I think that as a lawyer he likes the rule of law, and understands that rule of law and courts and property ownership and the high-trust society the British developed is what allowed them to rule over such a large swath of the globe for so long and be a superpower while Pakistan (where Khan’s family hails from) was just a third world backwater.
Yet I have no doubt that as a Pakistani and as a Muslim, Khan (very understandably) identifies with other Muslims and other Middle-Easterners/South Asians. I think Khan would be happy to lead a successful life in a non-Muslim country, and I don’t think he himself would kill or die to make the UK Islamic, but I absolutely think that his preference would be for it to become so, and that his actions in politics will be in that vein.
Indeed, I have no doubt that Khan has ambitions to become the West’s first Muslim Prime Minister, and to help bring Islam to power in the UK. By that I don’t mean that Khan wants the UK to be like ISIS-controlled Iraq or any other form of pure theocracy, but some kind of Islamic republic where there is a strong rule of law and some secularism, but where Islam unequivocally rules the land.
I think Khan probably views terrorists like these ones as thugs and idiots, and finds the violence somewhat distasteful and troubling, but that he sympathizes with the attackers for 1) their aim of making the West Islamic, and 2) because he likely views the native British as ‘Crusaders’ who have done great wrongs to the Muslims. I think he probably exhibits a degree of Schadenfreude when native Brit’s are killed, or when their children are gang-raped and trafficked like in Rotherham, although I don’t think he ‘supports’ either, and I’m sure close contact with either would be unpleasant for him.
Basically, all of the above is common sense. It is a reflection of the fact that throughout all of human history, people have had a natural inclination to support their own tribe above others. Khan is not doing anything different than most people do.
It is the native UK residents who have embraced ethnic-suicidalism and Cultural-Marxism that are the problem. Indeed they are currently greater enemies the country’s future than people like Khan.
Either way, for the UK to have any chance of survival, both of those groups will need to be defeated. That is a tall, tall order, but I absolutely still believe it is possible.
