Muslim list SNP MSP Humza Yousaf calls on UK Government to ban Donald Trump from the UK on the basis of ‘hate speech’, Trump says there should be a ban on all Muslims entering the United States after the terrorist incident in California, like the SNP, Trump has learned how to exploit people’s fears for personal political gain
Donald Trump is an American businessman who is standing for the nomination to become President of the United States.
Given the latest terrorist incident in America, Donald Trump has called for all Muslims to be banned from the United States. This is a populist policy which would find favour with a certain aspect of American society, but it is hardly fair and most certainly not constitutional. It may garner him support for his campaign but it could and never would be put into practice.
Not surprisingly, people have condemned his suggestion, and some people are calling for a boycott of Donald Trump’s Scottish hotels and golf courses.
Will this happen?
The reason is that people who can afford to stay in a Trump hotel aren’t the type of people to take the advice of the great unwashed, also the idea that the presidential hopeful would be barred from the UK is also pie in the sky.
Trump some time ago was given an honorary degree by Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen in 2010, campaigners want the degree removed from Trump, obviously this puts the University in a tricky position as removing degrees is generally ‘not the done thing’.
Trump as part of his justification for the ban on Muslims says that Muslims nurse a "hatred" for Americans. He also cited the couple who opened fire and killed 14 people at a health centre in San Bernardino, California, and linked the two together in his call for a ban.
I think that Donald Trump would be a disaster for American politics, and certainly he wouldn’t be a good President but if he gets in, America will follow his direction. Allow people from certain countries can be refused access to America; it is unusual for people of an entire religion to be banned.
Muslim list MSP Humza Yousaf said that Mr Trump's call, if implemented, would transform America into an "apartheid state".
Actually, it wouldn’t, the ban on foreigners wouldn’t affect the rights of American Muslims but it would affect him, his wife, Aamer Anwar and SNP MP Tasmina Ahmed-Sheikh.
English woman Tasmina Ahmed-Sheikh, the ex Labour, ex Tory political butterfly currently attached to the SNP said she believed that Trump needs to be barred from the UK for "hate preaching".
If anyone in authority was listening to her, she wouldn’t get anywhere with her complaint, not this side of a Presidential election. If Trump got elected President, would the UK bar him, I think not.
Patrick Harvie, the Scottish Green MSP for Glasgow, also lodged a motion at Holyrood condemning Mr Trump and urging the public to consider boycotting his Scottish businesses.
Well Patrick can certainly ask but rich people don’t tend to follow the advice of poor people so would Patrick suggest they downsize to a local B&B?
"This bigoted blowhard of a man is being rightly condemned far and wide, and I'm confident that Scotland will reject his extremist rhetoric.”
Some thing which Patrick said which was really funny was:
“Trump is now more than just a vulgar attention-seeker; he represents truly dangerous ideas, and should not be tolerated.”
Patrick, he is so rich that he wouldn’t even know your name or care what you do, Holyrood is so far down on his horizon, it might as well be a community council in his eyes.
Although there is a history of banning people coming to the UK such as the Westboro Bapist Church (who are all mental), controversial French comedian Dieudonne and US rapper Tyler, Trump isn’t in the same league, and he might become President.
How bad would that look if David Cameron banned a possible future President of the USA?
Muslim list MSP Humza Yousaf added Trump's comments were "divisive, hateful and designed to cause division between communities”.
Maybe Humza could send him an SNP membership form, after all this is the SNP Cult’s stock in trade, he would fit right in and he has got money!!!!!
Other ideas of Trump noted by Yousaf were Muslims should face increased surveillance, a register created so that they can be easily identified and Mosques closed down.
In France, three Mosques were recently closed down by the French Government because of extremism.
Should we also ban all French people and businesses in Scotland, and deny the French access to the UK?
I don’t know, I am just asking the question since Yousaf is making his case for banning Trump, incidentally, I am not pro Trump, he along with the SNP fucked the local people in Aberdeen to build his golf course.
Something which is worth pointing out to HumzaYousaf!
Yousaf also stated:
“This is hate speech that if implemented would undoubtedly lead to the US becoming an apartheid state. I am aware of a petition to the Home Secretary asking her to consider banning Donald Trump from entering the UK. I hope she will give it due consideration as we should not allow hate speech which seeks to divide communities unfettered access to the UK.”
Trump is doing what all shallow politicians do, he is using any issue and populist politics to try and get into public office, and to do so; he will say anything to get a vote much like Nicola Sturgeon.
He is just like the ‘hollow men’ of the Scottish National Party.
As to the petition to bar Trump that will go straight in the bin!
