Something several weeks ago snagged my interest when I was reading an article about Olympic security being provided by a private company called G4S. Over the past decade London has become the PC capitol of all things Islam. It really is quite over-the-top.
Aptly nicknamed “Londonistan” by those who have watched the British Police being cursed at, spit upon, and forced to tolerate the most horrific physical and verbal assaults by entities of Muslim persuasion, who exhibit the most horrid of violent radical islamic tendencies. Several recent examples have been cited over the year.
So the concern that struck a nerve for me was given the backdrop of politically correct fear would radical elements of Islam be able to infiltrate the security apparatus around the Olympic venue(s). And, if so, is it worrisome that a Fort Hood style coordinated extremist attack would be possible.
Recently I read more articles about how short staffed the security contingents were and how they are being supported with 4,500 regular uniformed British Military soldiers. Given the comments by Mitt Romney to this regard it seemed as if my concern was more than a little over worried paranoia on my part. But still, probably nothing.
However, it is indeed a fact that London is infected with the Cultural Marxism of political correctness. So a modicum of concern is not out-of-bounds given the shere magnitude of the security task being handled. When I read this today, my spidey senses picked up a bit too, and I wonder if…..
LONDON OLYMPICS - An Olympic guard faces the sack for spitting at an Army hero drafted in to boost security — and yelling: “Baby killer.” The Asian G4S worker flipped as he patrolled an archery contest at Lord’s cricket ground with the Afghan veteran.
A source said: “This security guard was ranting and raving at the soldier. “He was trying to defuse the situation but the guard was going crazy. He spat at the soldier and screamed at him. He was calling him a baby killer.
“He left the soldier in no doubt he meant he’d been responsible for children’s deaths while serving in Afghanistan.
“Despite the provocation, the soldier remained ice cool and didn’t lose his calm.
“Some of their respective colleagues arrived and the guard was removed.”
Bosses at security company G4S — which had to be bailed out by troops after failing to supply enough guards for London 2012 — yesterday said an urgent investigation was under way. The firm said the soldier from 35 Engineers had at some point asked to search the guard. It did not reveal why. The incident occurred behind the scenes on Saturday evening as spectators watched Italy beat the United States to win Olympic gold.
Scotland Yard said no criminal allegations had been made. Ex-Helmand commander Colonel Richard Kemp said: “This is an absolute disgrace.
“A soldier shouldn’t have to put up with this terrible insult. If there’s any possibility of a prosecution, then it should go ahead.”
G4S are understood to be waiting to see if the soldier makes a complaint. The MoD yesterday confirmed an incident had occurred. The military plugged the gap left by G4S with 4,700 troops. (read more)
