David Cameron (UK): We Will 'Drain The Swamp' Which Allows Muslim Extremists To Flourish

David Cameron (UK): We Will 'Drain The Swamp' Which Allows Muslim Extremists To Flourish

David Cameron has pledged to “drain the swamp” in which radical Muslims are allowed to hide and develop their extreme views in the wake of the Woolwich terror attack.

The Telegraph (UK)
Christopher Hope, Senior Political Correspondent
7:33PM BST 03 Jun 2013

The Prime Minister told MPs he would do more to tackle the “conveyor belt to radicalisation” which is poisoning the minds of young Muslims.

Mr Cameron also confirmed a Telegraph report that he is looking at finding ways to allow spies to monitor people over the internet without the need for Commons vote.

In his first Commons statement since the brutal murder in Woolwich, south London last month of Drummer Lee Rigby, Mr Cameron said it was important to learn the lessons from the attack.

He told MPs: “it is not simply enough to target and go after violent extremists after they've become violent. We have to drain the swamp in which they inhabit.”

This meant stopping young Muslims becoming radicalised on university campuses and preventing extremists from taking over Islamic centres. He said: “It means going through all of these elements of the conveyor belt to radicalisation and making sure we deal with them.”

Mr Cameron said the despicable crime had shocked and sickened the country.

He said it was necessary to understand the root causes of radical extremism if the Government was to successfully tackle the problem.

He said: "Those who carried out this callous and abhorrent crime sought to justify their actions by an extremist ideology that perverts and warps Islam to create a culture of victimhood and justify violence. We must confront this ideology in all its forms.”

If they do, we’ll give them amnesty once they come to the USA.

He met with the Russians. I think they wised him up as to the consequences of Muslims run wild.

We should be so lucky....we have a rotten muzzie for president.

I think true Brits have had their fill of Blue Ribbon Commissions conducting
studies. I have a feeling true Brits are fed up. And with good reason.

Memo to Cameron:

It`s your swamp, you made it. No way you turn your back on “multi-culturalism” now.

By arresting people who take issue with it on Facebook. They won’t even admit who the real threats are, they arrest the people who do.

If by “draining the swamp” he means cut off all the freebies and handouts those people get then it is a good idea.

Maybe if the people had to work 40 or 50 hours a week to make ends meet like a tax paying citizen they wouldn’t have as much time, money or energy for planning and carrying out their evil jihad.

But cutting off freebies paid for by hardworking taxpayers isn’t what Cameron was referring to most likely.

As soon as Cameron turns on the sump pump, the PC crowd will be decrying everything he is attempting.

Britain has the same problem as many other Western countries: ‘they’ have inflitrated deeply into the government(s) and social venues.

And just “when” do you expect the free loaders to be cut off?

2 months?
2 Years?
2 Decades?

Try this: They consider everyone who is not Islamic to be infidels and they intend to kill as many of the infidels as they can -- because their Imans have already absolved them of any guilt for their actions.

The butt plug of the swamp is at 1600 Penn Ave in DC.

Yeah, and in no time those in power will start using the term ‘extremest’ to cover their political opponents - like they do here in the United States.

Brits will lose both ways...

Because radical Muslims will still incite violence.

This isn’t a solution - it’s stupid. It’s like taking guns away from law biding citizens in New Hampshire to attempt to stop gun violence in Chicago.

By “draining the swamp” does he mean he’s going to prohibit all activity that fanatical Muslims find objectionable?

I'm not sure which swamp Cameron is talking about. The one that fosters Muslim Extremists is called "Moderate Islam", and David sure ain't referring to *that*.

So yes, he's probably going to do as you speculate. The Brits might even buy a year or so of relative calm (no public beheadings) with those gestures, but eventually the hummus is going to hit the fan.

Cameron: Islam is good, "..an extremist ideology that perverts and warps Islam..." is bad. (On same page as Tony Blair)

"We must confront this ideology in all its forms." (Why limit it to just extremist Islamists?)

Never let a crisis (Woolwich murder) go to waste. Justification for more government intrusion into private lives:

"A new Government taskforce on tackling radicalisation would see whether rules for charities were too lax and allowed extremists to prosper, and whether enough was done to disrupt groups that incite hatred or violence, he said. (parallel: Obama's use of IRS to target certain groups)

Mr Cameron also disclosed that he is looking at all “non-legislative options there are” to allow police and security services to spy on people’s activities over the internet. (parallel: Obama bypassing Congress, and the AP/Rosen scandal)

"Mr Cameron said that “some 95 per cent of serious crimes involve the use of communications data."

“As telephony moves from fixed and mobile telephony on to the internet, our intelligence and police services will have a problem."

Unless......intelligence and police services can listen in. That's why:

The Daily Telegraph disclosed last week that a team led by Cabinet secretary Sir Jeremy Heywood was examining whether they can bring in a large number of the proposed changes using existing legislation, without needing a divisive vote which Liberal Democrat MPs would oppose.

Cameron is in full emotional wedge mode which means he’s saying what people want to hear ala RINO’s , Karl Rove, Fox News, talk radio shows.

He’s in conservative talk mode, not conservative action mode.

For action, you need a real conservative in power.

Unless he starts by nuking Mecca during the month of pilgrimage, he’s wasting his time. Islam delenda est.
