What we saw in London yesterday we will, before too long, be seeing in America, thanks to the left and its relentless stigmatization and demonization of all opposition to jihad terror.

“Brooklyn Man Arrested for Encouraging ISIS Terrorist NYC Subway Attacks,” by Katabella Roberts, Epoch Times, November 28, 2019:

A Brooklyn man has been arrested and charged for attempting to provide material support to Islamic State, The Department of Justice announced on Nov. 27.

According to the complaint, Clark urged the participants in encrypted chat rooms to attack specific targets and posted photos and maps of the New York City subway system, encouraging ISIS supporters to attack certain locations.

Clark posted a manual entitled “Make a bomb in the kitchen of your Mom,” which gave detailed instructions about constructing an explosive device….
