The world is watching as Republicans and Donald Trump plunge America into the abyss of ignorance.
Don’t believe me? Not only are sensible Americans trying to distance themselves from the Republican approved frontrunner, other nations are trying to ban Trump from coming to their shores.
An online petition calls on U.K. Home Secretary Theresa May to bar the Republican presidential frontrunner from entering the country for allegedly violating the nation’s hate-speech laws.
If it receives 100,000 signatures, the petition could be taken up for debate in the House of Commons, according to The Independent.
The petition launched by Scottish resident and longtime Trump critic Suzanne Kelly blasts Trump for “unrepentant hate speech and unacceptable behavior” that “foments racial, religious and nationalistic intolerance which should not be welcome in the U.K.”
It reads in part:
“The UK has banned entry to many individuals for hate speech. This same principle should apply to Donald J Trump. We cannot see how the United Kingdom can condone his entry to the country when many people have been barred for less.
If the United Kingdom is to continue applying the ‘unacceptable behavior’ 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.”0
