Trump and Brexit

Seems as though once-Great Britain has just experienced a series of Trump stinkbombs, the biggest of which is his public callout of PM May.

She must be seething and Boris Johnson must be showing all his teeth.

My favorite of Trump’s stinkers was his denouncement of Sadiq Khan. But you’ll look long and hard on Google to find it. Same with Duck Duck Go. I don’t have the patience to look for the quote I saw regarding London’s soaring crime rate but it’s out there if you parse your search just right.

Wait till Scotland gets to tell him what they think of his golf course. Watch hiim do battle with the nay-sayers. Must be his heritage on his mother’s side.

      • Trump’s ambassador lobbied Britain on behalf of jailed right-wing activist Tommy Robinson
        LONDON (Reuters) – Sam Brownback, the U.S. Ambassador for International Religious Freedom, complained to the British ambassador in Washington D.C. about the treatment of an English right-wing activist who is in jail for disrupting a trial, according to three sources familiar with the discussion.
        Brownback raised the case of the activist known as Tommy Robinson in a June meeting with Sir Kim Darroch, Britain’s Ambassador to the United States, according to a British official and two sources close to the organizers of a pro-Robinson demonstration planned for London on Saturday.
        Robinson, whose real name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, though he also uses other aliases, is a founder of the English Defense League, which has organized violent demonstrations against Islamic immigrants in the UK in the past decade. More recently, Robinson has branded himself a journalist and campaigner against Islamic extremism, a move that won him contacts with American anti-Muslim activists.
        Robinson was arrested in late May outside a courthouse in Leeds, England, while making video recordings about a trial related to child molestation and jailed for 13 months for violating English law limiting publicity during criminal trials.
        Brownback raised the jailing of Robinson during a meeting with Darroch that covered a range of “religious freedom issues”, the British official confirmed earlier this week.
        Brownback told Darroch that if Britain did not treat Robinson more sympathetically, the Trump administration might be compelled to criticize Britain’s handling of the case, according to the two sources in contact with organizers of the planned pro-Robinson demonstration.
        The sources said Robinson’s supporters, who have also been in touch with the Trump administration about the issue, were concerned that he could be attacked by other prisoners.
        Reuters was unable to determine why the top U.S. official responsible for defending religious freedom would try to intervene with the British government on behalf of an activist who has expressed ant-Islamic views.
        Brownback, who is a former governor of Kansas and former U.S. senator, was not available for comment. However, on Thursday a U.S. State Department spokesman said the “characterizations” of Brownback’s meeting with Darroch by Reuters sources were “completely false” but the spokesman did not elaborate further.
        The British Embassy had no comment on further details of the discussion.
        Last week, the Middle East Forum, a Philadelphia group, said it was sponsoring and organizing a “Free Tommy Robinson” demonstration in London near the British Parliament on Saturday in collaboration with British and European groups.
        The event was expected to merge with a demonstration in support of U.S. President Donald Trump, who appointed Brownback, according to the British newspaper The Independent.
        Demonstration organizers said in a leaflet which circulated in London this week that Republican U.S. Congressman Paul Gosar and Dutch far-right leader Geert Wilders were scheduled to speak at its rally. U.S. Congressman Gosar did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
        But Wilders tweeted on Thursday that he would not attend the rally because the U.K. Ambassador to the Netherlands, Peter Williams, told Dutch authorities Britain would not provide security for him.
        British police said they were imposing restrictions on the event to “prevent serious disruptions” after protesters at a previous event made Nazi salutes and threw bottles at officers.
        A spokesman for Hope Not Hate, a British anti-racism group, said, “In the week President Trump comes to the UK, his hand-picked diplomat allying himself with a far-right convicted fraudster perhaps shouldn’t be too much of a shock.”

  1. I watched the protests on the BBC World Service. Apart from the usual meaningless Marxist fare of “Waycist” Thexthist” “Homophobic” and the rest of the leftist bunk, the so-called protesters had nothing much to say. I was staggered to see so many brainwashed leftists on our streets at a time when most law abiding citizens are at work.

    The view from Broadcasting House and along Regent Street was wall to wall leftists as far as the eye could see, while the BBC itself, a hideously patronising organ of leftist disinformation was trying the delegitimise the President of the United States with a number of tame talking heads. One of these was Sadiq Khan who was banging on about the British tradition of freedom of speech, while Tommy Robinson was languishing in prison for exercising his right to the same thing. Khan was trying to justify his decision to authorise the hoisting of a balloon portraying President Trump as a baby.

    Protest be damned. This was nothing more than a demonstration of leftist bad taste and rudeness. I don’t care if they let themselves down but by their childish behaviour, they have let down all the law-abiding citizens of our country. As for Khan and the remainder of the UK establishment, they disgust me.

    • Strange how Sadiq Khan is supposedly all about freedom of speech, and yet woe betide ANY non-Muslim who criticizes Islam or their sacred Muhammad. What a load of tosh it really is. One thing I can say is that a lot of people I know who have usually been quite tolerant towards Muslims are now becoming acutely aware of the grave danger they pose to Europe. One thing that is more than apparent now is that whenever the Muslim population increases to around 5%, of any country they live there is trouble brewing. One only has to look to tiny Sweden to see what is going on with the 5% of Muslims living there. God only knows what Europe will be like in a decade.

  2. Jus you whait, ‘Enery ‘Iggens–jus you WHAIT!

    That is, wait until your (total) muslim population EXCEEDS that there 10% ‘tipping point’ where the feces REALLY hits the circular ventilation device.

    That’s NORMAL in many UK population centers already.

    You ain’t seen nothin’ yet.
