My goodness, I didn’t think we’d actually get to this insane point. Previously, we would simply joke about knife control being a proposed “solution” to ending stabbings and the sort, but the lunatic Left of England might actually be looking to do it.
Recently, Mayor of London Sadiq Khan tweeted the following regarding the issue of increased knife-related crimes in London, which have topped New York City’s recently: “No excuses: there is never a reason to carry a knife. Anyone who does will be caught, and they will feel the full force of the law.”
I don’t think I have to explain why this is a moronic idea that will yield no good results, but I likely will anyway.
First, banning knives won’t decrease knife-related crimes. Criminals, by definition, don’t obey the law. If they, by law, can’t have a knife, they will not care one single bit. Whoever wishes to harm someone else will be able to do so despite what the law says. So it makes no sense to further weaken law-abiding citizens. They’ve already been horrendously weakened by the multiple gun control acts passed by Parliament over the last century.
Second, how exactly will London police enforce the “no knives” law? They can’t get every single person that breaks the law. Drugs are already illegal and the police have enough trouble as it is regarding that. It’s much the same problem police in the U.S. face with illegal drugs.
Third, even if the law enforcement in the U.K. can efficiently enforce this ban, that’s not going to solve the murder problem. If criminals can’t use guns or knives, they’ll use something else, such as a vehicle. In the future, it’s entirely possible that London’s mayor will tweet: “No excuses: there is never a reason to drive a car.” Or “No excuses: there is never a reason to have a cricket bat”. Or “No excuses: there is never a reason to have a lead pipe.” Or even “No excuses: there is never a reason to have a fist”, at which point they’d probably ban hands and demand people chop them off… but then again, that leaves the feet.
The point I’m trying to make is that you can try to ban absolutely everything that can hurt someone (which is basically everything that is solid. You could turn a book, a pencil, a cellphone, a computer or a tree branch into a weapon), but it won’t solve the real problem. The real problem doesn’t lie in the tools being used nefariously. Guns don’t kill people. Knives don’t kill people. Vehicles don’t kill people. Baseball (or cricket) bats don’t kill people. Fists don’t kill people. People kill people.
A gun can just as easily save a life as it can take one. Ditto for a knife, a car, a baseball bat and a fist.
To go after the individual tools is to ignore the real problem, which lies in people’s hearts. If more people understood the significance of life, they might be less keen on taking one.
Not that I would ever expect the Left to recognize or even acknowledge the real problem. After all, they INCITE the growth of the problem.
They know very well that banning guns won’t keep people from murdering each other. The proof lies in London itself. Sadiq Khan knows full well that banning knives won’t keep people from killing each other either. He just wants to look as though he actually gives a hoot, when in reality he doesn’t, as neither does anyone else in the Left.
They also know full well that believing abortion is a good thing further incites the growth of the problem. After all, if someone’s life is worthless inside the womb, why would it have worth outside the womb? If the life of an unborn child is meaningless, how is an already born child’s life any more meaningful? How is a full-grown adult’s life meaningful?
That’s the way killers reason, if even just subconsciously. I doubt they care much about the life of an unborn child. If they don’t care about someone who’s already been born, why would they care about someone who hasn’t?
And it doesn’t end with abortion. While it’s my biggest argument here, one can also bring up “animal rights’” activists. Those people (though not necessarily all of them) value animals’ lives ahead of humans’ lives, even ahead of their own. Ditto goes for tree huggers, really.
I remember some years ago, when a zoo employee had to kill a gorilla because a small child had accidentally fallen into its habitat, and people cared more about the gorilla than they did the child.
Granted, the gorilla hadn’t seemingly turned hostile, but it had grabbed the child and dragged him. Not to mention it’s a GORILLA! An animal with IMMENSE strength that can easily be ticked off and wreak havoc upon whatever it wished.
And people (at least liberals) were more upset that an “innocent” animal had been killed just because a small child had fallen into its habitat. I remember even seeing one person on Facebook openly admitting that they value animal lives over human lives.
And that’s all thanks to the Left diminishing the value of life. Upon doing research for this particular topic, I came across a blog post titled: “Is It Morally Justifiable to Kill an Endangered Animal if a Human Life Is at Risk?”
If you even have to ask that question, it already should tell you how little the life of a human being is worth to the Left. To its credit, the blog didn’t necessarily side one way or another, rather leaving it to the readers to debate and argue for either side (though that may have failed since this blog post is a little over a year old and there haven’t been any comments made).
But even asking that question, when the answer should be painfully obvious, is indicative of how little worth the life of a human has in the Left’s eyes. If the answer to that question is anything short of “yes”, then society is most definitely on a decline (which we already knew, but still).
In the case of the gorilla, yes, it was morally justifiable to have killed it. Again, it’s a GORILLA! They’re approximately six times stronger than a human. And that’s to say a full-grown human. An adult would be destroyed in a fight against a gorilla, never mind how a small child would fare.
So it’s this, combined with the blatant and brutal disregard of human beings within the fetus, that culminate into a culture where life is hardly worth anything. For all the “progress” the Left claims they seek, they are sending society back to the Stone Age.
A culture that has no value for other people’s lives is no different from the era Fred Flintstone lived in. Actually, that’s not quite right. The Flintstones were at least less savage than what the Left wants for us. They may have somehow watched television using rocks, but at least they didn’t kill someone just for the heck of it.
And I don’t exaggerate when I say that’s the sort of society the Left wants in the world. They would love nothing more than to have a society of like-minded people who don’t have the mental capacity to deviate in their line of thinking and thus, oppose them. They love and require a perpetually poor voting base. Likewise, they love and require a perpetually ignorant base. The same people who accuse Trump of working with Russia are the same people who ignore Hillary when she did precisely that and actually left evidence of it.
The same people who accuse Trump of being a sexual assaulter are the same people who supported the wife of an actual sexual assaulter. And the same people who claim Trump is a Nazi are the same people that support policy that more closely resembles Nazism than what Trump offers.
So returning to Sadiq Khan and London, I’m not at all surprised that he would try to blame knives for the rise of knife-related crimes in his city. He knows full well that such a measure would never solve London’s violent crime problem. And he’s more than ok with it. I won’t go as far as to say he’s a terrorist, but he does belong to a religion that establishes a very barbaric culture (go ahead, prove me wrong). So I can’t say I’m surprised that he would be willing to drive London, a previously major symbol of the West, into barbarism.
Unless he’s voted or thrown out of office, London is destined to fall. Maybe not to Sharia Law (though Khan definitely is making sure that happens), but almost certainly to Communism. Here’s hoping the people of London will wake up and realize what a threat socialism is to the world.
“To open their eyes, so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me.”
We bring you the TRUTH that the Left denies you. You'll live a more joyful and victorious life, because the Truth will set you free...
