good for them. she is a truly vicious c*nt.
 
2013-06-26 02:22:16 PM  
I wish they would keep her. :(

Why couldn't she get stuck in a Moscow airport without a passport?

There are reasons I love that country (those countries?), and that is one of them.

Wingnuts, the both of 'em.

Let her get a soapbox in Hyde Park like the other nasty, crazy loons.

I like our ways better, frankly.  It's messier, but in the end I think is more honest.

That said:  Their country, their rules.

Do we have to let her back in?

"These two are among some of the most extreme anti-Muslim activists in the world."

Brits country, their rules, but if they consider these two bloggers to be some of the most extreme anti-Muslim activists in the world, well, I'd say the Muslim's don't have much to worry about.

We need to let the government decide who can say what here.  Then we could put her in one of those FEMA re-education camps or send her to a death panel.

And I'm pretty sure the US can deny an entry visa to pretty much any foreigner, for any reason. (Except Cubans because commies.)

// they could also say "because terrorism AND IT'S A SECRET", which shakes out to the same thing

I bet she actually came when she found out. She'll be whining and fundraising about this for months.

Duh.  Britain is THISCLOSE to being an Islamist theocracy, of course they'd shut out this Strong Conservative Woman.

This and this.  I like our way better -- let her speak, and let the demonstrations outside be so raucous that they leave people thinking "is this really what I want to be a part of?"  Now she and the EDL get to claim they're being oppressed.
 
2013-06-26 03:22:38 PM  
Has she complained about the egregious trampling of her 1st Amendment rights yet?
 
2013-06-26 03:23:04 PM  
She was ideological kin with Breivik, he cited her as a huge inspiration. She actually defended him.

I'm cool with that. As a Canadian, I know our free speech laws also prohibit certain kinds of speech, so I'm more okay with it than Americans might be. I do understand the argument though.

Considering that her only "job" seems to be staying perpetually outraged on the internet I don't see why she'd cry. Hell, the UK basically just wrote the next two weeks of her blog for her. Since they did all the work, she can simultaneously pin herself back up on her cross and go on vacation.

And before people go on with the "It's not really a monarchy" stuff I deal with every thread. Yes it is a Monarchy that allows a democracy. Yes if the Monarchy one day said "Hey you guys can't do that anymore with your democracy", they might not get their way and their would be lots of going back and forth. But technically the Monarchy is still in charge.

That's a good theory. More likely it will be a like Tea Party rally, where anyone who comes to counter-demonstrate gets libel from Fox News coverage and probably a kick to the stomach from a cop too (Im from Chicago, so I only know how Chicago cops treat non-right wing extremist protesters)

zenferret: What "race" is muslim, tardmitter?


The vast majority of Muslims are brown, including Arab, Persian or Indonesian, and of course, incarcerated-black-man-ian.  So, "Go be racist [about brown races] somewhere else" applies.

Xcott: armoredbulldozer: If we don't get this immigration monster stopped within three years, it will rage like a California wildfire and destroy everything in its path, especially The American Dream.

That's like saying, "if we don't get rid of computers, they'll destroy the Internet and the information age."

Immigration is act 1 of almost every American Dream in the country.  That's why all of our major languages are imported from foreign countries like England and Spain.


Hating immigrants is a time-honored tradition in this country. People get here, settle in, and then start hating on anyone else who comes here.

partisan222: also, a few multicultural nations that seem to have had their stuff together for hundreds of years: Belgium, France, the United Kingdom, India, China, Peru, Brazil, Ecuador, Mexico.


Also, the United States.  Virtually everyone here is from somewhere else, and most of us speak imported languages.  A third of the country has Spanish names (like COLORADO,) a big swath in the middle has french names like Des Moines, and the rest is a jumble of German and Dutch and English.  We've been multilingual and multicultural since day 1---despite the rantings of the tard squad and their weird belief that white people just popped out of holes in the ground and the USA was Mayberry until brown people arrived in the 1970s.

Yep. No other group in history has ever used decapitation as a show of power. Only Muslims.

comslave: "Muslim" is not a race.


Bigot, racist, look, we're splitting hairs here.  Yes, it's not a race.  But as I said earlier, Islam is predominantly practiced by brown people (Arabs, Persians, Indonesians, incarcerated African Americans, etc), so one could say that they meant "Go be racist [towards brown races] somewhere else".

So many questions...

Is she related to Uri Gellar?

If so, does she flip over prayer rugs three times a day using ESP?

I suspect zenferret is trolling (or being pedantic) but there does need to be a better word for discriminating against someone's religion.  "Islamophobe" is a bit too long to be catchy.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Constitution_of_the_United_Kingdom#Key_ st atutes_and_conventions
It's a long list, so here are a few choice entries:
English Bill of Rights, 1689
Scottish Claim of Right Act, 1689
Representation of the People Acts, 1918, 1928, 1982
Human Rights Act, 1998

And before people go on with the "It's not really a monarchy" stuff I deal with every thread. Yes it is a Monarchy that allows a democracy. Yes if the Monarchy one day said "Hey you guys can't do that anymore with your democracy", they might not get their way and their would be lots of going back and forth. But technically the Monarchy is still in charge.

Charles I tried to impose direct royal authority over Parliament. He had his head cut off. James II argued with them (over religion, but it brought the political issues back to the fore). He died in exile. Under the aforementioned Bill of Rights, Parliament has the right to depose the monarch if (s)he says anything along the lines of "you guys can't do that any more with your democracy". It's us that allows them to stay, not the other way round, and they're fully aware of that.
