Lauren Southern wasn't the first: Meet MORE people banned from the UK over the past 10 years

Jack BuckbyRebel Contributor


The news that "identitarians" Martin Sellner, Brittany Pettibone and Lauren Southern were banned from the UK really blew up. To many, this was the first time they’d seen people banned from the UK for holding a political opinion – but in reality, this has happened before.

Lots of times before.

Prime Minister Theresa May, a so-called "conservative," has a long track record of silencing dissenting political thought and activism. She banned plenty of people from coming to the UK during her time as Home Secretary – and even before her, the Labour Party’s Home Office was pretty liberal with the "banhammer."

WATCH as I list some others who have been banned over the last decade.

Andrew not when there is no reason. What apart of that are you not getting??

And here we see ANDREW STEPHENSON demonstrating the third pillar of leftiedom in fine text book fashion. The Third Pillar is the refusal to exercise discernment. That is the ability to distinguish that some things are better or worse than other things. Andrew cannot discern that Muslims ought to be deported because they kill and rape and mutilate etc out of all proportion to their numbers and turn every country they go to into shitholes.

Lauren Southern does nothing of the kind.

Hence a normal person would see the Muslims as dangerous and worthy of deportation whereas Lauren should be allowed in and heard. Lefties are incapable of this simple exercise.

Here in Canuckistan the Government just withholds public money if you don’t hold their political opinion.
Maybe they escalate it to with holding medical care if you don’t hold their opinion.

Is there a rule in British Politics that says , the Home Secretary has to be a woman. When you constantly get losers like Jackie Smith, Theresa May and now that mad dog Amber Rudd; perhaps you should try another type of People-Kind.

HEY ANDREW, no comment about Prerogative on this? Wonder why? ’

Didn’t see it til just now.

Do you think governments have the right to ban Muslims and conservatives, or don’t they? There’s an interesting double standard developing here, where there is advocacy for banning of troublesome guests, but getting upset when one of your own gets caught up in the same rules.

I tend to say that visa denials should be only in very extenuating circumstances.

Robert Mcclelland great analogy, and sadly it would be true.

Excellent commentary Jack.

The government who bans those who disagree with the policies and platforms of their leaders will create an environment where conversations and debates are forbidden….people who are silenced will eventually react with violence.

same in canada. hate crime around your neck for speaking your truth. who cares if it is not my truth. why are we so afraid of anothers opinion. hitler, kkk, and slime like putin can say what they want to me but they will never persuade me to their side, and the only way they will is to have a fascist or communist state forcing me to. do countries in the so called west want that. democratic expression is a must and if it keeps being eroded than hitler, kkk, and putin will win.

When the U.K. bans those on the right because of their conservative views from entering the country, then, as Jack Bucky notes, the U.K. has ipso facto become a leftist totalitarian state, no different than North Korea banning a conservative from entering that country whose views would be contrary to that communist state.

I was thinking that if King Richard the Lion Heart and his Muslim antagonist Saladin were seeking to enter modern Britain, King Richard would be banned while Saladin would be welcomed.
