There may be more to this story than what is reported here, but at least according to this report Bryan Cork didn’t actually shout any racist slurs. He shouted an anti-immigration slogan and suggested that Muslims were not British — but considering inflammatory rhetoric that has come from some Muslims in Britain about wanting to see the government overthrown and Britain established as an Islamic state, it is not altogether unfathomable why Cork would get this idea.
Now should someone stand outside a mosque and shout rude things? Of course not. Cork’s actions are undeniably condemnable. But they make clear that frustration is rising over British officialdom’s unwillingness or inability to confront the problem they have created by admitting into the country untold numbers of Muslims who want to see Britain become a Sharia state. When ordinary people feel as if they have no recourse, they do things like this.
“Man, 49, jailed for racist slurs,” from the BBC, with thanks to Mathew:
A man who shouted racist insults at Muslim worshippers outside a Cumbria mosque has been jailed for six months.
Bryan Cork shouted slurs including “proud to be British” and “go back to where you came from” outside Carlisle’s Brook Street mosque.
He pleaded guilty to racially aggravated harassment on 30 November at the city’s Crown Court on Tuesday.
Judge Paul Batty, QC, told Cork, of Thompson Street, Carlisle, that racism in any form would not be tolerated.
