    Default Failure to condemn extremists

    Muslim leaders or Donald Trump?

    Charlottesville: Trump criticised over response to far-right - BBC News

    When Obama condemned violence on all sides Trump told him to blame Muslims explicitly.

    Extremists should be condemned. Except for the person who manages to assassinate DT....

    Listening to LBC & this is exactly what Maajid Nawaz was saying. Very sensible bloke IMHO.

    He was brain washed into being an Islamic extremist and imprisoned.

    Indeed and it seems to have made him an ideal commentator on Islamist terror.

    He was a member of "Hizb ut-Tahrir"

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maajid...Hizb_ut-Tahrir

    Initially a non violent organisation it evolved. It was legal in the UK at the time,

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hizb_ut-Tahrir

    He is not accused of any involvement in terrorist activities.

    A bit unlike Sinn Fein.

    Former Ku Klux Klan (KKK) leader David Duke turned up to the far-right rally at Charlottesville (Virginia, USA) to utter the rallying call of nationalists everywhere:”We are determined to take our country back”.
    Sounds familiar...

    Fiery UKIP leader Mr Farage, addressing Grassroots Out (GO) supporters, was cheered as he said: “We want our country back”.
    On BBC1’s Question Time programme broadcast on 15 June an audience member pleaded “I want my country back… we’re all just so frustrated”. This single plea symbolised a referendum which has been dominated not by sober analysis and evidence-based reason, but by hysteria, hatred, savage emotions, and the sinister monster of exclusionary, ethnic nationalism.
    The slippery slope has started...and seems to be gathering momentum

    Standing up to the EU is the same as standing up for Hitler.

    Anyway, the US native americans might say the same to the KKK.
