Maybe England is on to something....

How to keep Trump from visiting.

Recent twitter wars with the PM, Mayor of London, and his general loutish behavior has made Trump a very, very unpopular person in Great Britain. Parliament actually held a vote to downgrade the anticipated visit supported by nearly 2 million votes from the public. Any visit by Trump was bound to cause large protests and condemnation from the public and Trumpís folks know it, and nobodyís buying his excuse about an overpriced embassy. If everything were peachy between Trump and Britainís leadership, and if he anticipated a warm reception there is no doubt heíd fire up Cheeseburger 1 and head across the pond.

Londonís Mayor wasted no time voicing his pleasure at the news;

Mayor of London

@MayorofLondon
Many Londoners have made it clear that Donald Trump is not welcome here while he is pursuing such a divisive agenda. It seems heís finally got that message. This reinforces what a mistake it was for Theresa May to rush and extend an invitation of a state visit in the first place.

Would be great if we could (we're actually already headed there ) give him the same impression of VA!!

Trump Cancels Visit to ****hole Islamic Country


Trump has canceled his plans for a visit to one of the ****tiest Islamic ****holes in the entire Muslim world.

BBC:

Donald Trump has cancelled a visit to the UK planned for February, an official source has told the BBC.

Figured I'd correct your headline and lead in for you.

As what, an inhabitant of reality? I can see how that might be shocking to you.

We should definitely be listening to the mayor of London, who said terrorist attacks should be accepted as "part and parcel" of modern society in the West.

Based on your postings, your reality isnít. Noob (far?) right wing attempt, parsing the Mayorís words, changing the meaning.

Sadiq Khan has said he believes the threat of terror attacks are ďpart and parcel of living in a big cityĒ and encouraged Londoners to be vigilant to combat dangers.

"What I do know, is it's part and parcel of living in a great modern city is we've got to be prepared for these things..."

Was the "thing(s)" he was referring to bot Muslim Terror attacks? He was responding to a Muslim terror attack in the US.

Tell me, why should this be? Why wasn't there Muslim terrorism in major cities before the 1970s? And it has most certainly ramped up to unprecedented levels since 9/11.

Why should we have to accept, as part and parcel of living in a great society, terror attacks?

That's completely insane and literally suicidal.

Nobody but terrorists finds it acceptable or normal. The mayor was simply acknowledging that these type events are happening, primarily in large cities, and that he wants Londoners to be prepared, and assist law enforcement whenever possible.

As to the why of it, your guess is as good as mine. Personally, I believe modern forms of communicating (cell, internet) have made the spread of extremist hate filled ideology much easier and effective.

Or, you know, it could be importing millions of people from the Middle East and Africa, where such ideology and ways of acting are actually very much "part and parcel" of daily life in those areas of the world, and have been for centuries.

An overly simplified and naive assessment.

Just noticed the "brilliant" OP has demonstrated his exceptional discussion skills by confusing "England" with "London".

More lessons from "arguing with idiots".

Are you always such a douchebag? London, the capital of England, is where Trump would have made his visit. As he has a lousy relationship with it's Mayor (at Trumpís instigation), the Mayorís response to Trumpís bs tweet is relevant. The bigger picture of a large number of Englandís population, and Parliamentís disdain/hatred of Trump was addressed in the original post. Pull your head out of your **** and grow up.

Obviously radicalized Muslims are at the heart of most of the attacks however, this is where you should pay close attention, most are committed by native residents or those who became radicalized after arriving in country via the Internet. Pointing a finger at an entire group of people because a very small minority within that group commits heinous acts takes away from and misses the root problem. Radicalized Muslims. Creating and stoking hatred of an entire group only lends more fuel to the fire for the nut jobs.

I said that most of the attacks have been carried out by native citizens or people who were radicalized after their arrival. He said that none of the attacks happened until the 3 million Muslims had immigrated to England (apparently drawing that number from current estimates of the total Muslim population, of which nearly half were actually born in England). An erroneous and preposterous assertion not borne in reality.

* I hear green crayons taste like watermelon.

Man we got these Muslims here, committing terrorist attacks... What should we do, oh, I got it, BRING MORE! Oh, and that line about "most terrorists being from Europe" or whatever is BS, and no data backs that up.

Furthermore, radical Islamists are not some tiny group. They are in charge of nations and entire swaths od pand around the world. More misinformed MSM-fed boomer posting.

If you nor AMGfaninVA see thatas a bad idea, i really don't know what to say.
