"Communities across the UK have told Britain’s first counter-extremism commissioner that they are increasingly facing “a climate of intolerance and polarisation”.
"Speaking several months into a nationwide investigation to quantify the scale and reach of extremism, Sara Khan said she had been shocked by the depth of disquiet expressed to her by the residents of the 13 towns and cities she has so far visited."
"Khan, appointed by Theresa May in the wake of the Manchester Arena attack, told the Observer: “I was really shocked that in every place I visited I heard deep concerns about the activity and impact of the far right."
As per the Observer website....
--- Wow! This one passed me by. Theresa May appointed Sara Khan to respond to extremism following the Manchester Arena attack, but who carried out the attack? It wasn't the so-called "far right" (code language for white people who oppose multiculturalism). The bomber was Salman Ramadan Abedi, a 22-year-old man of Libyan ancestry. Yet, Khan, instead of investigating within the Islamic population investigates the "far right".
Of course, this is no surprise, as within hours of Savid Javid becoming Home Secretary, Tommy Robinson was in jail. Another so called member of the "far right"......
"Matthew Feldman, director of the centre for fascist, anti-fascist and post-fascist studies at Teesside University, said he was not surprised by Khan’s initial findings: “I think this is the most propitious time for the radical right since the end of the second world war, that hasn’t yet translated into activists, members or a party that might be able to overcome the first-past-the-post system.”
Khan added: “Youth workers in the south feared vulnerable young people could easily be sucked into a world of hatred. In the north, refugees and those from a minority background spoke of their fear of leaving their home during far-right marches.”
Perhaps, though, white people fear leaving their home on a regular basis, and are forced out of their homes due to the influx of people who hate them? Will Khan examine that form of extremism? No.
Theresa May described the Commission as "a statutory body to help fight hatred and extremism in the same way as we have fought racism."
Appointing Sara Khan to the position is like putting Jeremy Corbyn in charge of tackling Antifa!
