Larry, this is pretty much a result of tolerance. Many believe that we need to tolerate others. This is left wing "soft fascism" or "compassionate conservatism" and is absolute BS. The reality is that mankind loses their moral compass when we are asked to be tolerant of others and their views. We need only be tolerant of people's personal weaknesses and love them not accept the impact of such weakness on others.

Any view that seeks to take away our personal liberty or way of life is to be fought at all cost. Tolerance is a two way street. There are limits to tolerance. We do not tolerate thieves stealing our property, or someone trying to sexually abuse our children, or accept the violation of our character through rumor mongering.

In the same way we do not tolerate foreigners coming to our country to change the make up of our national character i.e. Muslims in Britain or illegals in the US. By delaying our corrective action we will pay a much higher price to rectify the situation. As an example in the US we have illegals murdering 13 americans a day, 14 americans are killed through motor accidents caused by illegals, hundreds of children are molested a day and many woman are being raped.

Mexican flags are being waved rather than US flags and multiple families live in a single home changing the makeup of the neighborhoods that were once american. The cost to the US taxpayer is $21 000 per year for each illegal household. The liberal ...s however want us to be tolerant as these illegals are just looking for a better life. Well, ...go back to Mexico and make a better living in your own country (95% of illegals are mexican). The same applies to Muslims. If you cannot become British then pack your bags and go to wherever it is you come from. Strange that they would leave their country where there is Sharia law to go to a country to try and insert Sharia law. The motivation is very clear to those that wish to see.
