I see that a bunch of Brit pantywaist MPs are shocked — shocked! — that celebrity rightwinger Tommy Robinson wants to come over to the U.S. and they’re doing something about it:
Robinson, a founder and former member of the far-Right group the English Defence League, has been invited to speak at an event in Washington later this month.
He is understood to be waiting for authorisation under the U.S.’s ESTA system before embarking on the trip, which opponents fear could open up new sources of funding for his campaigns.
A cross-party group of MPs has now written to the Trump’s administration’s Mike Pompeo, head of the U.S. State department, insisting Robinson should not be allowed to use the trip to ‘promote his violent and extremist agenda’.
Once again, stupid fucking Brit politicians demonstrate that they know nothing about our political system. You see [he explained patiently] we have this thing called the “First Amendment” to our Constitution which explains quite clearly that if someone wants to suggest that allowing hordes of radical Muslim assholes into a country is not A Good Thing, then he can go right ahead and say it.
In fact, if Pompeo accedes to their pathetic little complaint, I would suggest that he needs a kick in the balls and should be given some remedial study of said Constitution. (I can’t imagine that he would even listen to these morons let alone stop Robinson from coming in, but stranger things have happened.)
I can’t get up to D.C. to see Robinson in action, but I await the inevitable video of his speech with bated breath. (I bet it turns out to be quite innocuous, in American terms anyway.)
Fucking Brit politicians are all a bunch of timorous neo-totalitarians, regardless of party — and if Pompeo is going to ban anyone from coming over here, it should be these fifty MPs, for attempting to stifle freedom of speech. Now that I’d get behind.
