Dear Mr. Trump, I was deeply embarrassed to find out that the petition to ban you from the UK was started by a Scot.
I'm even more embarrassed that, during our Parliamentary debate this week, one of the few outspoken supporters of the ban was a Member of the Scottish Parliament.
I was especially embarrassed by the response of our leaders who revoked your role as Business Ambassador.
Historically, Scotland has played a strong role in the advancement of science, economics and philosophy. We gave the world David Hume, Lord Kelvin, Alexander Fleming, James Clerk Maxwell and Adam Smith, to name a few. Scotland was instrumental in building the US and Canada.
Modern Scotland, however, seems to be in the grip of a collective mental disorder when it comes to Islam, which I can illustrate with a few examples:
* Scottish politicians kicked up more of a fuss about you than about any of the dangerous radical Islamic terrorists on a list of people banned from entering the country.
* According to our First Ministers’ Christmas card, the Muslim headscarf, the hijab, is a key part of Scottish culture.
* Scottish police are ill-prepared for a Paris-style terror attack. During previous attacks, it was up to citizens
to take care of terrorists:
* The Scottish government has funded questionable Islamic groups to the tune of hundreds of thousands of pounds.
* The Scottish government granted early release to the infamous Lockerbie bomber. He returned to Libya as a hero.
* They settle migrants on remote Scottish Islands where there aren’t even jobs for locals.
* We have politicians with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.
It is obvious what is happening here:
Our leaders are scared.
They fear that Scottish Muslims are hypersensitive juveniles, and figure that relentless grovelling is the only thing stopping them from becoming suicide bombers.
Attempting to ban you is just a natural continuation of the pandering towards the Muslim community that has been going on for many years in my country.
I wonder if Scots know that your mother, who has the same first name as my mother, was born on the Isle of Lewis. Scots ought to be proud of this connection. They ought to be celebrating your success and supporting your campaign for the presidency.
Instead they would rather capitulate to a 7th century religion like "wee skleetit tim’rous beasties," to quote Robert Burns.
My sincere apologies on behalf of everyone who is as disappointed as I am,
A once proud Scot,
