“But Ms Wood was unrepentant, insisting that ISIS ‘is far right.'”
For years I have noted that the establishment media refers to both Islamic hardliners who enforce Sharia provisions calling for stonings and amputations, and non-Muslims who oppose the implementation of such provisions, as “conservatives.” And here we see the utility of their tactic: Plaid Cymru leader Leanne Wood claims that the Islamic State is “far-right,” and she and her ilk can thereby use the Barcelona jihad massacre as a pretext for further harassment and censorship of those who oppose the Islamic State. It’s clever, albeit diabolically clever.
Plaid Cymru leader Leanne Wood is facing a backlash for branding the Barcelona terror attack ‘far right’.
The Welsh assembly member sparked anger by tweeting about the apparent ISIS-inspired atrocity last night.
Posting a report of the deadly attack, Ms Wood asked: ‘Terrible. Is this more far right terrorism?’
The comments drew claims that Ms Wood was politicising the episode, while others complained that she was unwilling to condemn Islamist terrorism explicitly – arguing that ISIS ideology was in fact far left.
