Donald Trump has called for a halt in Muslim immigration to the United States. This is a response to the intolerance, illiberalism and terrorism of the Islamic community worldwide. Trump is entitled to these views and they are important matters that should be debated in open, pluralistic democracies. Doing so is what makes us civilised.
However some “progressives” on the left in the UK have “taken offence” to Trump’s views and have started a petition to have him banned from the UK. Here are their words:
“The signatories believe Donald J Trump should be banned from UK entry.
The UK has banned entry to many individuals for hate speech. The same principles should apply to everyone who wishes to enter the UK.
If the United Kingdom is to continue applying the ‘unacceptable behaviour’ criteria to those who wish to enter its borders, it must be fairly applied to the rich as well as poor, and the weak as well as powerful.”
What these people are trying to do is to suppress the views of someone they disagree with. They believe in free speech only for themselves and for their views. This makes them the enemy. They want to take away our fundamental human rights in support of their authoritarian leftardism. They should be utterly ashamed of themselves. They are far, far less civilised than Trump is.
This is how the left work, they always try to close down all debate from anyone who disagrees with them. Using political correctness, censorship and even legislating against thought crimes. Just one of many reasons why the left occupy the moral low ground.
