Reminder: London’s Mayor Once Called Moderate Muslims “Uncle Toms”

Following today’s terror attack in London, footage showing the city’s mayor Sadiq Khan describing moderate Muslims as “Uncle Toms” is making the rounds.

The footage – taken from a 2009 interview – is just one of the many pieces of media concerning Khan making their way around the web in light of today’s attack, which was allegedly carried out by a radical UK-based Muslim.

The clip in question shows Khan – a government minister at the time – speaking with Iranian-backed Press TV about the government working alongside moderate, high-class Muslims.

“I’ve spent the last months in this job speaking to all sorts of people,” he says in the clip. “Not just leaders, not just organizations but ordinary rank and file citizens of Muslim faith and that’s what good government is about. It’s about engaging with all stakeholders.”

“You can’t just speak to Uncle Toms.”

Khan drew the ire of numerous people when the clip surfaced in 2016 as he was running for Mayor of London.

According to The Daily Mail, he ultimately apologized (sorta) for the comment, insisting he was only “trying to encourage everyone to get involved in government consultations.”

Khan still has yet to live the statement down with many people, and that’s quite evident on social media following today’s terror attack that has left at least three people dead.

Also making the rounds today is an article in which Khan is quoted as saying terror attacks are “part and parcel” of living in a major city.

    This is truly disgusting.
    To him, a moderate Muslim who wants to live peacefully is an “Uncle Tom”.
    This guy needs to be driven from office, like yesterday.
    Britain needs a Trump to keep everyone…including Moderate Muslims, safe

      Because they’re too stupid to recognize that Stowe’s Uncle Tom was a good, compassionate man who deeply loved his family – he sacrificed his life for his family. Above all, he was brave and true to his principles. The Left doesn’t get that sort of thing. Ever.

        Look dude i haven’t read the book and i don’t care. The phrase means someone is extremely subservient with regards to their ethnicity/race. If these jackasses were out to empower anyone they wouldn’t start by insulting the fellow. Plus they don’t bother forwarding any iota of help after name calling. So it can’t even be justified as breaking down a fellow to build him up later.

          I’m aware of how the Left has distorted the term “Uncle Tom”. Their use of Uncle Tom isn’t exactly what you think. It’s close, but no cigar.

            Point is they complain about people being snobbish and mean whilst doing the very same things.

    Londoners didn’t elect him. The Muslim invasion elected him. This is what they have in store for the west….

    Maybe some of the ‘living in a large city’ terror should go his way

    He’s taking today’s events very well indeed, pleasantly placid…almost as if he feels completely safe and protected.

    Why would that possibly be so?

    What an incredibly stupid and irresponsible comment by London’s mayor. He alone resigned himself to further attacks in the UK! Stand up UK and stop condoning Islamic extremists for the sake of offending the Arab world!
