Hey Britain, you banned American radio host Michael Savage as well as counterjihad activists Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer from entering the UK for no legitimate reason. And now you are trying to have Donald Trump banned. So why are you getting your panties in a wad when the U.S. stops a Muslim family of 11 as they tried to board a flight to Disneyland?
Daily Mail (h/t MZ) A Muslim family of 11 from Britain heading for Disneyland was barred from boarding a flight to Los Angeles by US authorities at London’s Gatwick airport amid concerns over Muslim threat of terrorism.
“Online and offline discussions reverberate with the growing fear that UK Muslims are being ‘trumped’ – that widespread condemnation of Donald Trump’s call for no Muslim to be allowed into America contrasts with what is going on in practice.”
A Labour MP has called on the Prime Minister to challenge the US after officials refused to allow a Muslim family permission to board a flight to the country from Gatwick. Stella Creasy has written to David Cameron urging him to press American authorities on what she says is a growing problem of British Muslims being barred from the US without explanation.
US Department of Homeland Security officials provided no explanation for why the country refused to allow the family of 11 to board the planeeven though they had been granted travel authorization online ahead of their planned 15 December flight.
