Former British Prime Minister and Labour Party liberal, Tony Blair, gave a very interesting interview just a short while before the terrible attack on Brussels in Belgium.
Speaking with the BBC on the state of the fight against radical Islam and the terrorist danger that has been bred, Blair argued that it was his fellow liberals who had caused our side the most damage. Blair argued that the “flabby” center had become far too concerned with appearances and self-guilt than with defeating the existential threat before us. Blair wished that his fellow liberals would realize that there are things that must be said that we have no reason to feel guilty about and that supporting multiculturalism didn’t mean we should blind ourselves to the evils of radical Islam.
“We’re in a situation where we have to fight back.
“The centre has become flabby and unwilling to take people on. We concede far too much.
“There’s this idea that you’re part of an elite if you think in terms of respectful tolerance towards other people. It’s ridiculous.
“One of the problems with the West is that it constantly can be made to feel guilty about itself – and I’m not saying there aren’t things we should feel guilty about.
“But you know, we shouldn’t let people intimidate us into thinking there are certain values we shouldn’t be standing up for.
“I’m a supporter of multiculturalism. But there’s been a long period of time when we’ve allowed the concept of multiculturalism to be abused.”
Blair continued by telling the BBC that we in the West must become more proactive in the ideological battle with Islam. He pointed to schools as a breeding ground for the growth of radicalism in Britain and said that political correctness cannot keep Britain from meeting the danger in schools head on.
“The truth is this extremism is being incubated in school systems, formal and informal, which are teaching children a narrow minded and often hateful view of those who are different.
‘What people need to understand is that this culture of hate is taught.
‘They are taught a culture of hate and they can be untaught it.
‘This extremist thinking is what you have to attack, if you don’t attack the ideology you’ll never defeat the violence.’
Blair then went on to directly challenge the liberal PC police who are constantly whining about not imposing our cultural values onto others.
While we obviously disagree with many of Blair’s liberal political beliefs, on these issues of political correctness and the existential cultural battle with Islam, we are in agreement. The left is handcuffing us in our fight against terrorism and it is costing us dearly, in blood. If we hope to win the victory against the radical Islamic agenda, then we must engage the battle with all of our faculties and all of our strength. We must throw off the politically correct shackles that the liberals have placed on us if we want to defend our values, culture and people to the best of our ability. This is not a game, it is a fight for our very lives.
