British journalist, author, and political commentator Douglas Murray has spoken out against what he calls the “John Lennon response to terrorism.”
“We remain stuck in the John Lennon response to terrorism. They blow us up, we sing Imagine.”
“They bomb us, we sing ‘Imagine,’” he said during a monologue on the British political program ‘Daily Politics.’
“Our politicians still refuse to accurately identify the sources of the problem, and polite society remains silent or dumb,” says Murray.
“We need to think far more deeply about this. Eastern Europe doesn’t have an Islamic terrorism problem because it doesn’t have much Islam.”
“Are we ever going to draw any lessons from this?” he continued. “Apparently not. For the time being the game is to be as inoffensive as possible.”
