Ominous Signs That Europe Just Isn’t Into Trump

A few weeks ago, I said the following…

Courtesy of BBC:

Two prominent US bloggers have been banned from entering the UK, the Home Office has said.

Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer co-founded anti-Muslim group Stop Islamization of America.

They were due to speak at an English Defence League march in Woolwich, where Drummer Lee Rigby was killed.

A government spokesman said individuals whose presence “is not conducive to the public good” could be excluded by the home secretary.

He added: “We condemn all those whose behaviours and views run counter to our shared values and will not stand for extremism in any form.”

That was back in 2013…

In Ireland we have laws against incitement to hatred. We also have a Constitution which is fairly, fecking ok. The Indian Constitution (1950) was very much influenced by the Irish constitution.

Prohibition of Incitement To Hatred Act, 1989

Actions likely to stir up hatred. 2.(1)It shall be an offence for a person—
(a) to publish or distribute written material,
(b) to use words, behave or display written material—
(i) in any place other than inside a private residence, or
(ii) inside a private residence so that the words, behaviour or material are heard or seen by persons outside the residence,
or
(c) to distribute, show or play a recording of visual images or sounds,
if the written material, words, behaviour, visual images or sounds, as the case may be, are threatening, abusive or insulting and are intended or, having regard to all the circumstances, are likely to stir up hatred.
(2) (a) In proceedings for an offence under subsection (1), if the accused person is not shown to have intended to stir up hatred, it shall be a defence for him to prove that he was not aware of the content of the material or recording concerned and did not suspect, and had no reason to suspect, that the material or recording was threatening, abusive or insulting.
(b) In proceedings for an offence under subsection (1) (b), it shall be a defence for the accused person—
(i) to prove that he was inside a private residence at the relevant time and had no reason to believe that the words, behaviour or material concerned would be heard or seen by a person outside the residence, or
(ii) if he is not shown to have intended to stir up hatred, to prove that he did not intend the words, behaviour or material concerned to be, and was not aware that they might be, threatening, abusive or insulting.
(3) In this section “private residence” means any structure (including a tent, caravan, vehicle, vessel or other temporary or moveable structure) or part of such a structure used as a dwelling but does not include any part not so used or any part in which a public meeting is being held; and in this definition “public meeting” means a meeting at which the public are entitled to be present, on payment or otherwise and as of right or by virtue of an express or implied permission.

Donald Trump and pretty much all of the so-called presidential candidates are guilty of our Hatred Acts.

Scotland has taken up the cause. Yay Scotland!

Courtesy of Raw Story:

The British Parliament could soon review a petition calling for U.S. presidential candidate and former reality TV star Donald Trump to be barred from entering the country on grounds that he has violated the U.K.’s laws against hateful and defamatory speech.

The Independent reported that a petition begun by Suzanne Kelly from Aberdeen, Scotland must gather 100,000 signatures before it can be taken up for debate by the House of Commons.

This is not Kelly’s first run-in with the real estate tycoon. She led a 2013 effort to block Trump’s proposed construction on “the greatest golf course in the world” at Scotland’s historic Menie Estate. Kelly raised serious concerns about the development project’s environmental impact.

I think my country has a legitimate reason to ban Trump from our shores. Have our politicians the balls to do it? I’m not too sure about that. There is that fecking golf course down the country that they will say brings in tourism.

The funny thing about the GOP run for the presidency is that every sane country on the planet can refuse entry to these racists because of their policies.

I have been researching how I can complain about Trump to my government. I’ll let you know how I get on.

    After the President’s terrorism speech, there are several more people who need to be added to the list. Some Fox talking heads have been suspended for swearing on air. They are scum, disrespecting the President the way they do. The UK should add ALL the gop contenders to the list of people banned. President Obama has taken so much hatred, it is a disgrace to this country that he is disrespected this way. Meanwhile Cheney has a bust (at taxpayer expense) unveiled to honor him in the capital.

    After watching some clips of Trump from his announcement monday night, that he would ban all muslims entrance to the US… I am nauseated. I can’t think of another time that I have so loathed a human being, even a politician. Arrogant, hateful, egotistical, … . And then, the interviews of his fans who agree. “Send them all back.” I am close to despair.

      You’re not alone. I believe the moment when many of us heard Trump’s words last night will be something we will remember always – where we were, what we were doing, how we felt, the creeping nausea.

      It’s time to heed, once again, Hannah Arendt and what she said about the banality of evil. The way people accept doing awful things – water-boarding, torture, demonizing groups of people, denying them human rights – is because these things have become normalized. Think slavery. Think the first Gulf War of 1991 which was called Operation Just Cause. The examples are legion. All it takes is making the unthinkable seem normal or even right. Money, status, power, apparently make normalization of the unthinkable pretty easy.

      In other words, people who say and/or do unspeakable things are not always fanatics. They can be ordinary people who accept premises that have been made widely acceptable, routine, even the way it should be.

      This we will fight.

        Your comment brought so much to mind for me, too much to even reply. This whole circus is becoming overwhelming.
        So I’ll just say- Yes, we will fight it. We have to.

    His poll numbers may be up with his followers, but most of America isn’t the least bit interested in this traitor. He needs to be banned from the USA also, too! The Mayor of St. Petersburg, FL has banned him from the city while they check him out! 🙂 Wish every mayor would follow them! This guy is Psycho 1!

  5. ProfessorCanine says:

    Yup.
    “Maybe it’s time for those of us who have predicted Trump’s demise—reporters, liberals, moderate Republicans—to face an unpleasant possibility. Trump isn’t out of touch with the electorate. We are. Trump speaks for a plurality of today’s Republicans, and many independents as well. That’s just as true on the subject of Muslims as on other topics. One of America’s two ruling parties is controlled by voters who are ready to turn the government against a religious minority.”
