On Saturday, Cressida Dick, commissioner of London’s Metropolitan Police, told the Associated Press that she’s proud of the diversity shown in the victims of the recent terrorist attack in the city, Breitbart reported.
“It’s desperately sad and poignant but among those who died is someone who’s British, there are French, Australian, Canadian, Spanish,” she said. “In terms of our witnesses that we’ve spoken to so far, out of the 300-odd people, there are about 20 different countries of origin. And the London British population comes from all kinds of backgrounds and every kind of faith and ethnicity.”
She said she believed that long-time residents of London cherished the international flavour of London. “We believe of course that that’s what makes our city so great,” she said. “It’s a place where the vast majority of time it’s incredibly integrated and that diversity gives us strength.”
Dick stepped into the role of Commissioner in April. Previous to her appointment she was known to most of the public as the officer who presided over the botched police operation which saw Brazilian man Jean Charles de Menezes shot dead by officers who had mistaken him for a terror accomplice.
The force’s first female chief, she took the reins just weeks after a terrorist attack outside the houses of Parliament claimed four lives and left more than 50 others injured. It was the first of three attacks on British soil in as many months, two of which took place within the capital city.
But Dick is unperturbed by the rapid pace of events, insisting that London has long been the scene of terror. Following a line of argument similar to that of London Mayor Sadiq Khan, who argued that terror attacks are “part and parcel” of living in a large city, Dick said that it was the role of the security services merely to adapt to changing terror methods.

Holy sh*t, right?
Of course we shouldn’t be surprised this is their ‘silver lining’ when one of the Jihadis who took part in the terror attack was on a TELEVISION SHOW called, ‘Jihadis Next Door’.
Naturally, this didn’t sit too well with many on social media.
Is this a fn joke? Are you serious? The victims were diverse? Get your heads out of your ass England.

This is disgusting. Using jihad victims to push "diversity."

You take pride in the fact that a diverse group of people were murdered by terrorists that you knew about, but didn't do anything about?

Sure sounds like it.
Someone please explain how diversity gives us strength.

One person asked:
how diverse were the killers from London, Manchester, and London again

So the purpose of some of these people which died was to serve as an example for diversity? This isn't even disgusting, it's a sewer.

Step 1: Create max. diversity among terror victims.
Step 2: Encourage more diversity among terrorists.
Step 3: Pat ourselves on the back.

Sad but true. As we noted yesterday while reporting on the left’s response to the #MarchAgainstSharia that took place in some 28 cities across the country, liberals apparently think those who oppose oppression and fascism are oppressive bigots and fascists.
It seems that Michael Savage was correct when he said that liberalism is a mental disorder…
- Violent Antifa thugs at #MarchAgainstSharia throw unidentified chemical on female conservative blogger
- HuffPo falsely claims #MarchAgainstSharia a ‘March against Muslims,’ suggests only ‘haters’ oppose Sharia
- ‘Egalitarian’ feminist on Twitter: White people killed in London terror attack ‘deserved’ to die
- CNN’s Reza Aslan calls Trump a ‘piece of sh–‘ for correctly identifying London terror attack
- ‘CNN is ISIS’ trends on Twitter thanks to Trump supporters
