A pro mass-migration, EU-funded pressure group has called on the British government to ban Donald Trump from the United Kingdom over his comments regarding Muslim immigration. British Future – which has a history of targeting people with anti mass migraiton views – accused Mr Trump of being a “hate preacher”, insisting that British laws against hate preaching should be used against him.
Their comments have been labelled “sinister” by mainstream journalists who also dislike Mr. Trump. The group has made no statements about the number of Islamist-sympathising migrants being caught across Europe.
On Monday Mr Trump, the front-runner in the race to become the Republican presidential candidate, called for “a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on.”
‘British Future’ masquerades as a think tank, though lists as its donors the European Commission, the pro-migration Barrow Cadbury Trust, the hedge-fund run Unbound Philanthropy group which also funds almost all pro-migration groups in the United Kingdom, and the notorious George Soros’s “Open Society Foundations” which call for an end to national borders.
The group now wants to see Britain’s Home Secretary Theresa May ban Mr Trump from the UK on the grounds of hate speech, with its director, Sunder Katwala, saying he wants to make it “very clear that this extreme view is rejected and repudiated in the strongest possible terms.
“The UK Home Office has set out clear guidelines which have led to the exclusion of preachers of hate from the UK if their presence here would not be conducive to the public good,” he said.
“Theresa May has excluded extreme Islamists on these grounds, and also kept out those who have fanned extreme anti-Muslim prejudice, such as the bloggers Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer. Trump’s statements are more extreme than theirs.
“Unless and until Trump were to retract these highly prejudiced comments, there is a good case for making clear that he would be refused entry to the UK by the Home Secretary.”
Mr Katwala’s comments were slammed by Frasier Nelson, editor of The Spectator, who took to Facebook to say: “Donald Trump is an insult to America and mankind – but the idea that he should be banned from Britain for extreme views (rather than being an idiot) is kinda sinister. And it shows the growth of this creepy no-platform brigade. Always and everywhere, it’s better to out-argue creeps and bigots than to try to censor them.”
