They are lost in the UK…
All terror plots should be taken seriously. But the fastest growing threat in Britain has gone from six percent to ten percent of terror plotting? Pardon me if I don’t spill my tea in horror. And it gets even sillier. Basu, said the BBC, “said some of the right-wing plots they disrupted were ‘designed to kill people’ – and methods mimicked those seen in jihadist attacks, with some even using Islamic State materials.”
UK’s Counterterror Top Dog Warns of Terror Threat From ‘Far Right’
Constructing a fantasy world — and enforcing it with the full weight of the law.
The British government is indefatigably committed to propagating the Left’s risible claim that “far-right” and “white supremacist” terrorism constitutes a threat equal to or even greater than the jihad terror threat. This became clear again as the BBC reported Thursday that “the fastest-growing terror threat in the UK comes from far-right extremism,” and that the authority making this claim was none less illustrious a personage than Neil Basu, Britain’s head of counter-terrorism. This indicates that the law enforcement establishment in shattered, staggering, dhimmi Britain is embracing this ridiculous claim at its highest levels.
Basu, according to the BBC, “said seven of the 22 plots foiled since March 2017 have been linked to the ideology.” That sounds ominous indeed, until one reads on. Basu “said far-right terrorism had gone from 6% of the caseload two years ago to 10% today.” And “speaking at a briefing on Thursday, Mr Basu said about 10% of around 800 live terror investigations were linked to right-wing extremism.”
The upshot of this is that Basu and the British police are dealing with 80 “right-wing” plots today, and had to handle 48 such plots two years ago. Perhaps conscious of how silly it was to make this increase sound as if it were a big deal, a sign that “right-wing extremism” was engulfing the country, Basu hastened to say: “It’s small but it’s my fastest-growing problem.” The BBC added, with admirable understatement: “But, he said, the biggest threat still came from jihadists.” Basu also said: “As a proportion of our overall threat it’s definitely increasing,” that is, the “right-wing” threat, whereas the Islamist threat is staying the same, albeit at a very high level.”
