I think the US can learn something from the UK. Trump can make himself a nice little home on an unpopulated island far away and be "president" there.2

I don't like Donald Trump, but I think it's a little excessive and will never pass. But I doubt that's the point, for it to pass. It's nice to see that over 500,000 never want him to set foot in the country.
Haha COOL THANG! Where do I have to sign? 😁
"Hate speech" eh. Totes. -_-
People can't argue against what he actually said. so they are trying to shut him down other ways.
i think the bigger concern for foreign countries is the enemies he's making. he's got to have a bulls eye on him and it only makes sense for countries to be concerned with their national security allowing him to enter the country.
i also think that countries and even more importantly their government officials want to be seen with him. whether they believe or support his rhetoric it isn't really good for one's political image to be seen as sympathetic or supporting racism, bigotry, sexism, xenophobia, etc.
Great idea. I think the whole of continental Europe should follow. Maybe even the whole world. However, I don't think it would matter much. I don't think Trump even wants to travel abroad and he wouldn't even be capable of finding Great Britain if you'd set him out on a boat in the British channel with a GPS and a paper map.
Cool, can we ban him from the USA too?
It's ridiculous. The whole concept of "hate speech" has been abused to pretty much smear points of view that some people dislike. I love the Brits, but they don't have the equivalent to our American First Amendment when it comes to protection of speech. But the UK is a sovereign country, and they can choose to allow or disallow anyone to enter (or not enter) their country. (Or at least they should have that sovereign right. The problem with the UK is that they've given up some of their sovereignty to the EU.)
I think it's kind of stupid to be honest because who cares if people don't like him to be honest he brings business and he brings money, capitalism is what makes the world go round not the opinions of angry protesters.
And it's a bit excessive to be honest, I mean what person of power, wealth and influence isn't hated by thousands of people? it's a tale as old as time it's a waste of time and resources that could go be put to better use, and it will never pass, you also have to take into account that the media twists everything a lot people say on the air and edit and modify what they actually host and tell the world, and most people are stupid enough to believe it.
Even if you did indeed ban him from entering the UK what does it really accomplish to be honest, sure he won't be allowed to enter the UK but the vast majority of people there would have never even seen him if he was there, he only ever goes to other countries for business, lands in a private airport, goes and conducts his dealings and leaves as soon as he arrives. Even if he get go there, he can still conduct his business there from overseas or send people in his stead or hell even communicate with people there through the internet.
So in the grand scheme of things it doesn't accomplish anything except give these protesters the temporarily feeling that they accomplished something in their ordinary lives.
Anything you don't like can be called hate speech if it offends you enough, even if what is being said happens to be true. Which is why any society that values freedom of speech can not attempt to regulate what is allowed to be said within the political area. Even speaking out against a political party could one day be seen as hate speech. Speaking out against those that you feel spread hate should be encouraged, as oppose to trying to silence your enemies by viewing them as criminals.
The idea that you can ban "hate speech" and be free is idiotic but whatever.
That's the kind of bull that gets people arrested for mean tweets.
He talked shit about London and they got pissed off because it was clearly lies. Who gives a fuck, anyway?
Idgaf about his hate speech but I don't want him shitting all over where I live, so I'd easily sign that petition if it actually got shit done.
Guy says a lot of stupid sh*t and is a race baiter, don't oppose the UK's intentions whatsoever.
Oh British people aren't they fantastic? They really do epitomize moral decency, they really are the beacon of morality. Let's conveniently forget the centuries of damage that Island did to the Ireland and her people, the ethnic cleansing, the sale of Irish slaves in Virginia and Barbados and the ships sailing to Australia. Let's forget their colonization of over 2/3rds of the world's landmass.
We can even sweep their recent colonial escapades in the Middle East under the carpet, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and now Syria while defending a Saudi regime because of deals of oil. The British really are something else. The hypocrisy of the US is sickening but it is perhaps the hypocrisy of Britain that is far more sickening.
Britain has done more damage to the world than Trump ever will do and quite frankly there are numerous people that would like to see Britain banned never mind Donald Trump.
So what happens when everybody decides to ban everybody who says something they don't like? Or do just certain types of people get to decide who to ban?
