The hateful extremism of the British government
I have just had an extensive look at "Challenging Hateful Extremism", a recent emission of the British government.
There is only one form of extremism in Britain that frequently kills people and that is of course Muslim extremism. So you would think that the report would focus heavily on that form of extremism and leave other forms of extremism to be summed up in a single chapter. That is not remotely so.
The report does mention Musim hate speech but it is most heavily concerned with the words of British patriots who resent the favoritism shown towards Muslims by the British government. And that favoritism is surely hateful extremism.
The Left will deny anything so will probably deny any favoritism towards Muslims but the report itself is evidence of that bias. It was chaired by Sara Khan, a former president of an Islamic youth organisation. No expectation of bias there, of course.
So rather than be preoccupied with the grievous attacks from Muslims that can erupt anywhere any time, the British government wants to muzzle citizens who are concerned about such attacks. A more hateful form of extremism would be hard to imagine -- JR
