Conservative columnist Michelle Malkin accused British progressives of complicity in enabling attacks like the murder of a soldier in England on Wednesday.

Political correctness in so many ways has been a hand-maiden of Islamic terrorism, not only in this country but in many PC-countries countries around the world,” she said on Fox News's Hannity show.

She complimented British Prime Minister David Cameron for calling the murder a terror act, “because what do you need to have — neon lights that say, ‘Islamic jihad, Islamic jihad!?”

Malkin stressed the importance of calling terror attacks what they are and called the failure on the part of liberals to enact tough policies “tragic.”

Unfortunately, in British culture, among the progressives there, they’ve brought it on themselves in some ways, because of lax deportation policies — an unwillingness to screen out and profile Islamic militants who are now doing this in a homegrown manner on British soil,” Malkin said.
