Country First, People Last

“America First will be the major and overriding theme of my administration.”

Donald Trump, April 27, 2016

A British lawmaker, Jo Cox, was killed today. She was a member of the Labour Party and she was in favor of Britain staying in the European Union. For that, apparently, she was murdered. From Reuters:

Media reports citing witnesses said the attacker had shouted out “Britain First”, which is the name of a right-wing group that describes itself on its website as “a patriotic political party and street defense organization”.

Jayda Fransen, deputy leader of Britain First, said the attack was “absolutely disgusting” and suggested that Britain first was a common slogan being used in the EU referendum campaign by those who support Brexit.

Britain First. America First. Right-wing groups. Murder. Oh, my.
