While most of the world was grateful that the security forces in Paris were able to stop as many of the terrorists as they could, and would hope for the same in their own countries, UK Labour party leader Jeremy Corbyn was troubled. He came out yesterday in opposition to a “shoot to kill” policy for terrorists staging an attack in the UK.
It turns out this position was so insane that his own party had to go into open revolt to fight it.
It’s not a joke though. Corbyn thinks that we should “bring them to justice”, even if they’re Islamic State fighters in Syria and Iraq. On top of that, he’s attending the Christmas party of a group that says the French had it coming.
It’s so bad that his own party had to yell at him to get him to back down. Actual shouting. Corbyn is so insane on this issue that his own party had to get loud in order to get him to realize how wrong he is on this.
So he’s now come out and said he accepts the policy of shooting terrorists in the act, but the damage has been done. He’s on record, the point is out there, and we all know he doesn’t really mean it. Just like we all know what Obama means, and doesn’t really mean, when it comes to stopping terrorism against Christians worldwide.
