- Louise Mensch: Alt-Right Recruiter

From Vox's site:

To all my dear Muslim brothers and sisters in Manchester and across the U.K., we got your back. Neither terrorists nor Nazis will divide us.

Vox's reaction is similar to my own:

I put a poll up on Twitter.

If a Muslim happens to drive a truck through the Manchester vigil tonight, what would be the correct response?
Laugh
Cry
Hold another vigil
Pray to St. Breivik

St. Breivik is a reference to the Norwegian Shooter who took an Assault rifle to a Progressive Summer camp and killed 69 people. He's a self describe 'Fascist' and 'National Socialist'. From his wikipedia page:

On the day of the attacks, Breivik electronically distributed a compendium of texts entitled 2083: A European Declaration of Independence, describing his militant ideology. In them, he lays out a worldview encompassing opposition to Islam and blaming feminism for creating a European "cultural suicide". The texts call Islam and Cultural Marxism the enemy and advocate the deportation of all Muslims from Europe based on the model of the BeneŇ° decrees, while also claiming that feminism exists to destroy European culture.

Vox has a pretty good defense of of his citing Breivik, and I'll let it speak for itself. In this context though I read him to mean that the only answer to a people who want to blow up innocent little girls is violence. Though I'm not advocating shooting up a summer camp or college campus, I can definitely see his point.

I believe the government should be the only arbiter of force. I don't think it should be necessary for individuals in a country with a functioning government, to resort to force on their own behalf, in order to protect innocent children.

The question I have is, is the UK, or for that matter the US, that kind of country? Or are we already as ungovernable as Louise Mensch and the Social Justice Warriors say that they want us to be?

And what do we do about it if we are?

Saint Breivik? You're better than that.
