Michael Brown and Nicholas Salvadore – ‘Soul Brothers’?

Many of you have heard of the 82 year old woman, beloved in her community, whose head was hacked off in a London suburb, by a crazed Machete wielding assailant.  But the details of the story that are emerging, no thanks to Scotland Yard, are causing me to do a double take on a number of accounts.  First the outlines of the crime from the Telegraph UK:

Nicholas Salvadore, 25, was charged late on Friday with the murder of 82-year-old Palmira Silva, who was hacked to death in an apparently random attack on Thursday afternoon.  Mr Salvadore was also charged with assaulting a police officer. Mrs Silva is understood to have been attacked by a suspect who had argued with his flatmates minutes earlier, prompting them to flee in terror in a car as he smashed one of its windows.  The killer then beheaded two cats, ranting as he did so, before targeting Mrs Silva.

Subsequent to the original reports, more is being learned about Mrs. Silva’s murderer.  Salvadore – are you ready – converted to Islam five years ago!  Even though this fact has been established, British law enforcement officials are instinctively maintaining that there is no terrorism-related aspect to Ms. Silva’s murder.  Of course not.  Because what do we have here other than a convert to Islam, a weapon that was a handy substitute for an al-Baghdadi signature edition Islamic State decapitation knife and a method of murder that is the predominant method of choice of jihadis everywhere?  The reasonable person in the street certainly wouldn’t make any connection with terror.  Oh, no, not much. The killing of Lee Rigby in Woolwich was effected by a machete wielding Islamic as well.  Pure coincidence, in the estimation of the yellow livered London authorities.  Great (formerly) Britain has long been run by cowardly politicians who, instead of confronting the truth and purging their society of the hateful fifth column among them, have actually imported more of the element that is organized to destroy the country from within. Little wonder that these leaders are also of the mentality that citizens have no right to personal ownership of firearms with which to defend themselves.  But that’s perhaps, a different column. There are other interesting aspects to this story, as the Telegraph continues its narrative:

Neighbours said Mr Salvadore had been living with friends a few doors down from Mrs Silva in Edmonton, north London, for several months and was well known in the area, where he was nicknamed “Fat Nick”.  An hour before Mrs Silva’s murder, Mr Salvadore had been involved in an argument at the local Nightingale Café, where he ordered a takeaway burger and left without paying.  Fatima Altun, 20, who works in the cafe, said: “I went after him and said ‘You haven’t paid’.  He gave me the money, it was £3, but he was a bit angry about it.  To me he seemed a bit depressed or upset about something.”

Hmmm, let’s see here.  Salvadore ordered a sandwich and tried to leave without paying and made a stink about it.  What does that remind us of?  Wasn’t there a young thug in Ferguson, MO that had a similar sense of entitlement, taking $40 worth of cigars from a convenience store and threatening the store owner with violence when said store owner tried to convince him to pay for the items? Needless to say, we’ll never know if Michael Brown would have gone on a spree with a machete – or perhaps converted to Islam, because (it appears) that he provoked a police officer to shoot him, but the profile of anti-social behavior makes a remarkable comparison.  “Fat Nick” was also involved in a row with a local taxi firm last year.  A shopkeeper in Nightingale Road said: “I don’t know what the argument was about but it ended up with him breaking a window.” Khairul Islam, 40, who runs an Internet cafe close to Mrs Silva’s home, said:

“He’d come over quite a lot and search the internet for things like cars.  He was one of these people that just hangs around, a bit of a ruffian but never violent to me.  He seemed OK, just a loafer”.

Oh yeah, they always “seem OK”, until they don’t.  Or maybe people prefer to ignore the warnings.  Dave Jensen, 52, a builder who once employed Mr Salvadore as a labourer, said he had converted to Islam five years ago.  Mr Jensen said:

“Nick told me in passing he’d turned to Islam, about five years ago. But he wasn’t in your face about it.  He didn’t try and convert others or talk about religion and politics at all”.

Not that Dave Jensen knows of, at least.  After all, in the U.K.,  if you knew that someone arrested for an atrocious murder was a follower of Islam, you probably want to paint a picture of someone whose affinity to a certain notorious religion, was an enigma rather than something that made warning bells sound in your brain.  Even so, reporting suspicious behavior to the authorities in Britain is a fools’ errand in any event.  They are not interested.  Clerics in “Londonistan” regularly preach hate, judgment and violence against infidels and nothing is done except in rare instances.  And what’s more, even implying to the press that a Muslim might have terrorist tendencies could single you out as a bigot or extremist.  Maybe doing so could be classified as hate speech. British law enforcement officials will turn their head at almost anything if there is even a whiff of a possibility that the followers of “The Prophet” have perpetrated it.  Roger Scruton, writing in Forbes describes the insanity of affairs:

A story of rampant child abuse—ignored and abetted by the police—is emerging out of the British town of Rotherham. Until now, its scale and scope would have been inconceivable in a civilized country.  Its origins, however, lie in something quite ordinary: what one Labour MP called “not wanting to rock the multicultural community boat.”

As many as 1,400 children had to become victims of Pakistani Rape Gangs consisting of Muslim men who – surprise – exclusively targeted white girls.  Forbes further reports:

In fact it is only one of over 1,400 cases, all arising during the course of the last fifteen years in the South Yorkshire town of Rotherham, all involving vulnerable girls either in Council care or inadequately protected by their families from gangs of sexual predators.  Almost no arrests have been made, no social workers or police officers have been reprimanded, and until recently the matter was dismissed by all those responsible as a matter of no real significance.  Increasing public awareness of the problem, however, led to complaints, triggering a series of official reports.

Why are the public safety officials and social workers indifferent to victims of Muslim predators?  Because identifying the criminals involves identifying the religious and ethnic affiliation of the criminals and doing so would, well – it would probably be racist. Roger Scruton sums up the factors accountable to the climate of fear and indifference in Britain:

…political correctness causes people not merely to disguise their beliefs but to refuse to act on them, to accuse others who confess to them, and in general to go along with policies that have been forced on the British people by minority groups of activists.  The intention of the activists is to disrupt and dismantle the old forms of social order.

Similarly, in the United States, when blacks are arrested of crimes that contain every element of a racial attack, city officials and police will take special pains to deny the obvious, so as to not offend the sensibilities of guilty white liberals and militant black community dis-organizers. As one example among thousands, my friend Colin Flaherty, author of “White Girl Bleed A Lot”, an expose on our nationally dishonest handling of racial violence –  notes in the book that after an attack on Asian students:

a school superintendent in Philadelphia circulated “a pamphlet on how not to antagonize black students” to Asian students while the local papers were busying explaining that the violence had “no racial component.”

The same dynamic applies on either side of the pond and in Europe with regards to crimes committed by Muslims.  When people – affiliated with a particular worldview, ‘religion’ or political movement, publicly pledge to either murder or enslave you, the rational response is to set aside ‘tolerance’, ‘sensitivity’, ‘diversity’, ‘multi-culturalism’, and political correctness in favor of doing what it takes to neutralize the threat. Anything less is a national suicide pact.
