  1. And still the deluded left will tell us that mass immigration is a good thing and even mentioning that the killer is a foreign national makes you racist.

    • But the problem is that without knowing as a certainty where someone came from and you have enough statistical data to show that certain sections of society are responsible for a disproportionate amount of crime, it’s all too easy for those that disagree with a viewpoint to shout out the usual “isms” and get debate shut down.
      Of course that argument falls apart when the “right thinkers” have an agenda to pursue , eg the endless war on landlords that punishes them all rather than the minority that cause problems. All a bit messy and illogical but seemingly the way of the modern world.
