In the wake of the London terror attack that left at least seven dead and 21 critically injured, Conservative Review contributor and CRTV host Steve Deace has a message for the Left concerning terrorism.

The Left’s pervasive insistence on identity politics is actually a “an affirmative form of discrimination,” Deace said in a tweetstorm Sunday, one that is “putting not just Westerners but Muslim immigrants/countries at risk.”

Deace also discussed how the intense partisanship and anti-Trump hysteria of left-wing Democrats is inhibiting the country from having a productive discussion on how to confront violent extremism.

“Much of the speech he gave last week in Saudi Arabia was a road map to defeating this without declaring war on Islam as a whole,” Deace said. “But you missed it, because of your partisanship. And I say this as someone that didn’t vote for Trump.”

The Left must end its obsessions with multiculturalism and opposition to President Trump on every front. Until it does so, the Left puts all peace-loving opponents of violent extremism at risk.
