A man who used a narwhal tusk to fight off a madman on the London Bridge has spoken out to criticize Donald Trump.
Darryn Frost, 38, is a communications expert for the Ministry of Justice. Back in December he grabbed a narwhal tusk off the wall in Fishmonger’s Hall and went after a knife-wielding maniac during a prisoner rehabilitation event that took place not far from the London Bridge.
Frost chased Usman Khan onto the bridge. Khan had two knives and Frost fended him off with the tusk. He then managed to wrestle Khan to the ground and hold him down until the police pulled him away. Khan was shot and killed moments later.
Frost recently described Trump’s decision to kill Qassem Soleimani in a drone strike in Baghdad back on January 3, as “feeding terror.”
“The next generation of terrorists will rise as a direct result of these actions and we must condemn them now, Frost said during an interview with The Guardian.
Iran responded to the general’s death by bombing American airbases in the region. No lives were lost in the attack.
Iran, however, has now taken the blame for accidentally shooting down a Ukranian jetliner. Members of the Iranian military mistook the plane for a cruise missile. All 176 civilians aboard the plane were killed.
After fending off the terrorist, Frost launched a new campaign he calls Extinguish Hate. The campaign’s goal is to create support for kindness as an antidote to extremism. Frost’s campaign has been backed by the former prisons minister and London mayoral candidate Rory Stewart.
Frost added that he does not dispute the right of the U.S. to consider Soleimani as a bad person, but adds that the decision to assassinate him “outside a state of war” was not the right thing to do and could result in more backlash.
Trump’s actions in Iran could potentially affect the UK. Last week the Cressida Dick, the Metropolitan police commissioner, stated that her forces were on high alert for potential repercussions with the UK from the Iran crisis because it is highly possible that Iran could consider the UK a “partner in this crime.”
