While the media loses its collective mind over Donald Trump’s recent call to halt the immigration of Muslims into the U.S., other controversial comments by the frontrunner regarding radical Islam in London have been almost forgotten.
Trump claimed that without the temporary ban on Muslim immigration, the U.S. could end up with “no-go areas” like London, where there are parts of the city “so radicalized the police are afraid for their lives.”
Critics from across the pond slammed Trump for the statements.
But guess what, police officers have been coming out of the woodwork to declare that Trump is right.
Via the Daily Mail:
Serving police officers today backed Donald Trump’s claim that some Muslim communities in the UK are no-go areas because of extremism.
Several Met officers have said the ‘Islamification’ of some parts of the capital requires ‘extra vigilance’ and they can’t wear uniforms for safety reasons – despite Scotland Yard claiming the tycoon ‘couldn’t be more wrong’.
The US presidential contender caused worldwide consternation yesterday after a string of incendiary remarks about Muslims, including in Britain, and said: ‘We have places in London and other places that are so radicalised that police are afraid for their own lives.’
But one serving officer said today Trump had ‘pointed out something plainly obvious, something which I think we aren’t as a nation willing to own up to’.
Another policeman said that he and other colleagues fear being terror targets and spoke of the ‘dire warning’ from bosses not to wear a uniform ‘even in my own car’.
Despite more evidence that Trump does little more than speak the truth about the spread of radical Islamic terrorism, a petition to ban him from Britain for being a ‘hate preacher’ has garnered 250,000 signatures.
London Mayor Boris Johnson said Trump’s comments about London ‘no-go areas’ prove “he’s betraying a quite stupefying ignorance that makes him frankly unfit to hold the office of President of the United States.”
Yes that’s right, this guy just called Trump stupefying and ignorant.

Johnson’s comments aside, the police officers are proving once again that no matter how extreme or crazy liberals try to portray Trump, he’s still just telling it like it is.
It’s a reality few on the left want to confront.
