A Utah man celebrating his 25th wedding anniversary in London was among those killed in Wednesday’s attack outside the U.K. Parliament. Kurt Cochran and his wife, Melissa, had stopped in London during a tour of Europe and were planning to return home today.
An American was murdered in an Islamic terror attack and we hear nothing of this in the enemedia. Instead we are tortured with lectures about Islam, “one of the world’s great religions.” We are warned against identifying this Islamic attack as Islamic lest we be “racist” “bigots” “islamophobes.” While the streets of London are still fresh with blood we are told that Muslims’ feelings are paramount and that they don’t feel safe. They don’t feel safe.
The British government are sacrificing their citizens on the alter of Islam.
Who speaks for the dead?

A Utah couple celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary on a dream tour of Europe are among the victims of the London terror attack.
Kurt Cochran, 54, died after being thrown over Westminster Bridge onto a walkway beneath it when ISIS terrorist Khalid Masood mowed him down in his Hyundai 4×4.
His 46-year-old wife Melissa was also struck. She lay frozen on the bridge among postcards from a toppled tourism stand with blood pouring from her head while strangers consoled her.
Mrs Cochran was taken to hospital in the UK where she is being treated for a broken leg and rib.
They were the first people hit when Masood, who later died in hospital after being shot by police, embarked on his murderous path across the bridge where at least ten more innocent pedestrians were hit.
Chilling photos of the couple at the bridge swept the world as news of the attack spread.
