PIERS MORGAN: The real big baby is Sadiq 

PIERS MORGAN: The real big baby in London this week is Mayor Khan – a petty little pipsqueak who’d shamefully rather mock and humiliate the President of Britain’s greatest ally than honor the D-Day heroes of both our nations

This week, we commemorate the 75th Anniversary of the D-Day landings, the largest seaborne invasion in history.

It was the crucial turning point in the war with Adolf Hitler and the Nazis, one that began the liberation of German-occupied France and laid the foundations of the Allied victory on the Western Front.

The D-Day landings: There were at least 10,000 Allied casualties, with 4,414 confirmed dead

The D-Day landings: There were at least 10,000 Allied casualties, with 4,414 confirmed dead

It was also the moment that most perfectly exemplified and cemented the special relationship between Britain and America, the two nations that provided the vast majority of those who fought the ferocious battle on the beaches.

There were at least 10,000 Allied casualties, with 4,414 confirmed dead.

They, along with everyone who took part in D-Day, will be remembered in a special ceremony in Portsmouth on the south coast of England on Wednesday, attended by the Queen, President Trump and 300 veterans.

That is why Trump has come to Britain for a three-day state visit.

He’s not here as a private individual.

He’s here as the democratically elected President of the United States, still Britain’s greatest ally.

As such, he represents the 320 million citizens of the U.S. including many who have personal family connections to the D-Day landings and World War 2.

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.

Sadiq Khan  who’s been Mayor for three years, launched a series of savage attacks on President Trump in the past 48 hours and also authorized the Trump baby blimp being flown

He’s been joined in this unedifying campaign of anti-American negativity by numerous other senior British politicians including Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, Liberal Democrat leader Vince Cable, Speaker of the House of Commons, John Bercow and even by some of the media who should know better, like SkyNews who unwisely used the blimp to promote their coverage of the visit.

The politicians have all raced to denounce the state visit, refuse to attend a banquet in the President’s honor, bar him from speaking to Parliament, and all but condemn Trump as the worst human being that’s ever existed.

Little wonder than that when President Trump arrived in the U.K. this morning and read all this, he responded in kind.

British politicians including Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn (center), Liberal Democrat leader Vince Cable (left) and Speaker of the House of Commons, John Bercow (right), have also been scathing of Trump’s visit

‘Sadiq Khan,’ he tweeted, ‘who by all accounts has done a terrible job as Mayor of London has been foolishly ‘nasty’ to the visiting President of the United States, by far the most important ally of the United Kingdom. He is a stone cold loser who should focus on crime in London, not me. Khan reminds me very much of our dumb and incompetent Mayor of NYC, de Blasio, who has also done a terrible job, only half his height. In any event, I look forward to being a great friend to the United Kingdom and am looking very much forward to my visit. Landing now!’

Predictably, this prompted an immediate roar of faux outrage from all those who had failed to be remotely outraged by Mayor Khan’s initial attacks.

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.

‘I don’t think much of him’ Trump blasts Khan before UK visit

Little wonder than that when President Trump arrived in the U.K. this morning and read all the negative comments from Sadiq Khan and others, he responded in kind and compared Khan unflatteringly with New York City's Mayor Bill de Blasio (top right, with Sadiq Khan) in a series of tweets (above)

The Mayor wants this trip to be all about him, the tough-guy left-wing London boss standing up to the evil leader of the free world, rather then the D-Day heroes.

Yet by doing so, Khan is guilty of the very divisiveness, inflammatory rhetoric and childishness that he purports to find so distasteful in the President.

And he most certainly doesn’t speak for all of Britain, as he claims to.

Ironically, what the likes of Khan, Bercow, Corbyn and Cable have done to President Trump is the very antithesis of the good manners and dignified politeness that used to be the bedrock of being British.

Instead, given what Trump is here to commemorate, it’s been rude, obnoxious, self-interested and disrespectful.

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’.

Khan led a legal bid for Farrakhan’s ban on coming to Britain (for his hateful behavior) to be lifted, and denied his client was either anti-Semitic or a preacher of ‘racial hatred or antagonism’.

Sadiq Khan says UK is wrong to “roll out the red carpet” for Trump

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’.

So his concept of who is and isn’t acceptable to let into Britain seems a rather fluid one, depending on who’s signing the checks.

Khan has also, as Trump rightly said, been an abject failure as London Mayor (even worse than Bill de Blasio in New York!) presiding over a terrible surge in knife crime that has led to dozens of young people being murdered on the streets of the city.

So who the hell is this jumped-up pipsqueak to start barking out insults at the American President when he can’t even protect our kids from being stabbed to death?

As a Londoner, I’m utterly ashamed by the selfish, puerile, virtue-signalling antics of my Mayor.

He has diminished himself, his office, and his country, and I apologise to all Americans offended by this disgracefully antagonistic welcome to their President during such an important visit.

But I say this to them: most Britons greatly value the support of America during World War 2.

Without it, it is very doubtful we could have defeated Hitler.

President Trump is here to represent those who enabled us to win the battle on the beaches of Northern France.

In that capacity, he deserves our dignified respect, not our snobbish sneering and petty partisan sniping.

As for those champing at the bit to protest against Trump this week, with their abusive placards, mocking chants, and pathetic baby blimp, I simply say this: the only reason you can do so in this country is because of what happened 75 years ago on D-Day. The heroic British and American forces (with the help of other Allied forces too) that fought that day did so to protect your freedoms.

So whatever your view of Trump, this is surely the week to park the incessant anti-Trump hysteria for just a few days and instead honor those who died and risked their lives in Normandy?

Bottom line is this: do we want the lasting images from this historic occasion to be of a pathetic orange baby balloon flying over our Parliament, or of a U.S. President standing shoulder to shoulder with the Queen to pay tribute to the D-Day heroes?

If your answer is the balloon, then you’re a stone cold loser too.


School Lefties Choose Segregation Plan for Minneapolis’ School Future


by John Hinderaker  at PowerLine:

It has often been observed that progressives are re-segregating some areas of the country, especially college campuses. But Minnesota has never been segregated, so our progressives are boldly venturing to segregate our citizens by race for the first time.

The City of Minneapolis has scheduled a series of “sacred conversations” with the city’s staff. The series goes under the title, “400 Years of Resistance and Liberation. Remembering, Recovering, Reimagining.” Here is the flyer; following, my comments on it. Click to enlarge:

The mind boggles. I understand that these “sacred conversations” have been postponed because of internal controversy over the segregation of “Black Bodied Staff” and “White Bodied Staff,” which is not just offensive but painfully stupid. But the project is risible in other ways.

* Why is the City of Minneapolis (incorporated 1867) commemorating the 400th anniversary of “African people being brought to Jamestown, VA”? Is there some relevance here that escapes me? Minnesota joined the Union in 1858, just in time to volunteer the first soldiers to fight for the Union in the Civil War. Many Minnesotans did so, in units that are renowned to this day.

* The City’s assertion that Africans were “forced into slavery” upon their arrival in Virginia is false. They were enslaved in Africa; sub-Saharan Africa had a slave economy at that time and for centuries after. As of 1619, slaves had been an important commercial commodity in much of Europe, Africa and the Middle East for 2,000 years. But slaves have never been bought or sold in the State of Minnesota.

* Meanwhile, most Africans have come to the United States voluntarily as immigrants, not as slaves. In Minnesota, a large portion of our black population has arrived in recent years as refugees from Somalia. They have eagerly come to this country to be rescued from poverty, oppression and civil war.

* These events are to be led by “the City’s Racial Equity Coordinators.” Plural. How many are there?

* Why, exactly, are these “Sacred Conversations”? I think because endlessly beating the rest of us over the head with race is sacred to the Left.

* Why is the City of Minneapolis doing this? “Come take part in the conversation to have a better understanding of our role as City staff.” But what does a “sacred conversation” about 400 years of racial experience have to do with the job responsibilities of city staffers? It is hard to imagine how such conversations could be helpful.

* This is awfully lame: “Each session will address the theme for this work rememberingwho we are (May), recovering our narratives of liberation and oppression (June), and re-imagining a future without harm.” This is moronic liberal mush, obviously, but I especially the enjoy the concept of “re-imagining a future without harm.” Does that mean we can forget about global warming? Sadly, I expect not.

* Then we get to the segregated meetings, with “Black Bodied Staff” attending one set, and “White Bodied Staff” another. You might be tempted to think this is a joke, but it isn’t. Also: we have quite a few Asians and Hispanics in Minneapolis. Where do they fit? Nowhere, I guess. Asians in particular are best forgotten as they never seem to advance the narrative. But here is a serious question: if the purpose of these sessions really is to create “a better understanding of our role as City staff,” what possible excuse can there be for racial segregation? Do black City employees have different jobs or job duties from white employees? Are they expected to discharge their job duties differently in some way? Is there any excuse for this segregation other than naked racism on the part of those who planned these “sacred conversations”?

* Finally, check out the very bottom of the flyer. I assume this is standard across a wide range of City of Minneapolis documents. Click to enlarge:

No, I don’t have any idea either. The one thing we know is that the City of Minneapolis may be segregationist, but is is definitely inclusive.

Fascist Dems Eliminate “Bye Bye Peter Strzok and Lisa Page” Play Project


by John Hinderaker  at  PowerLine:

Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney are Irish documentary filmmakers who have made several notable movies, including Gosnell. Their latest project is a play called FBI Lovebirds: Under Covers:

The play, “FBI Lovebirds: UnderCovers,” casts Dean Cain and Kristy Swanson as FBI agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. The production’s dialogue comes straight from the pair’s texts, which revealed both their romantic affair as well as plans to battle Donald Trump’s rise to the Oval Office.

It is a nice concept, one that another playwright used effectively with grand jury testimony in the Michael Brown case. All of the dialogue is taken straight from the texts exchanged by Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. Unfortunately, the production has been canceled due to threats of violence:

The team behind the project just announced the theater canceled its contract to host the performance in an email alert. The theater cited “threats of violence” for why it reversed course on the production, according to “FBI Lovebirds” email.
Here’s the official statement from the D.C.-based theater.

Studio Theatre has cancelled its contract with third-party rental client Unreported Story Society. Media reports have made us aware of undisclosed details about the event and have generated open and violent threats against the theater and event participants. Studio has an institutional responsibility to consider the safety of our staff, patrons, community, event organizers and attendees. These concerns must be paramount.

So, once again, liberals get their way by threatening violence. This is a common feature of today’s landscape. Liberals have dropped all pretense of wishing to live in a diverse, pluralistic, civil society. They are making all-out war on all who do not buy into their extreme views. This is an interesting case, because the play’s script consisted entirely of statements that were actually made by Strozk and Page in texts. But for leftists, some facts are too explosive to be allowed to see the light of day.

The play’s authors say they will continue to try to find a theater willing to produce their play:

“We’re used to this. This has happened to us in every project we’ve done when we’re trying to tell the truth and report stories no one else is reporting,” Ann McElhinney said in a video released today.

It’s another day in the life of those who try to bring a sane perspective to public life in 21st century America.
