Your author, a cultural Libertarian, does not believe clumsily expressed political opinions should be used as a weapon to destroy free speech and is trying to start a counter-petition. Whilst I would not agree with his words, your author is concerned that the left do not use it as a Trojan horse to make the issue ‘verboten’ once again. A Parliamentary petition has been set up to demand Donald Trump be refused access to the United Kingdom. In the name of free speech your author is seeking to set up a counter petition.
Migration is a sensitive issue. People in Great Britain have real concerns over migration – due to pressure on resources and due to legitimate fears about the very different culture of some migrants. An extreme example of this was the Rotherham scandal in which 1500 underage Caucasian girls were raped by predominantly Muslim offenders and it went on for nearly two decades because people feared they would be branded ‘racist’ if they reported it.
Trump’s strong views are undiplomatically expressed but reflect real concerns. Because of this I am trying to set up a counter Parliamentary petition asking the legislature to consider the concerns in a more nuanced, less kneejerk way. I need 5 UK supporters to give me their emails for a counter signature – can I find them? Please email me at the usual address or tweet @MHWitchfinder. I will turn on public Direct Messages for a while for this.
In case we are censored, supporters can show their support here anonymously whilst we are setting up the other petition. For irony, I have not included a ‘No’ option because if people do not support free speech, why allow it to them?
