British Prime Minister Theresa May used some fairly extreme rhetoric on Wednesday while explaining what the country will do to combat terrorism in the wake of multiple attacks.
“I'm clear: if human rights laws get in the way of tackling extremism and terrorism, we will change those laws to keep British people safe,” she said. May has also advocated for increased internet regulation to combat the spread of extremist propaganda.
Britain has sustained multiple attacks in the last two weeks. Late last month, a suicide bomber detonated outside a concert arena in Manchester and killed 22 people, some of whom were children. Three attackers killed pedestrians on London Bridge and stabbed people in Borough Market on Saturday night.
When children are targeted by terrorists, people will be less concerned about so-called tolerance, Mike Broomhead asserted on Wednesday’s “The Glenn Beck Radio Program.”
“That’s when people begin to think, ‘They will attack anyone,’” he said.
Mike explained why he supported May’s rhetoric calling for stronger government measures to fight terrorism.
“Why is it a bad thing to say, ‘We’re gonna do our best to make sure we weed [terrorists] out’?” he asked.
