I’m an Anglophile. Let me start with that. I love the U.K, but members of the Parliament should not be debating banning someone from entering the country because they disagree with his speech. How dare they? I don’t at all like the way Donald Trump talks about Muslims and I think a ban is a horrible idea, and not American, but a free society should not ban someone because they don’t like what he says.
Why not ban Anjem Choudary?, who lives in the U.K. His speech doesn’t bother the members? Here’s an article talking about his support for ISIS, and it’s well know that he would like to see Sharia law implemented in the UK, and that he praised the 911 attackers. Hitchens wrote about this man in an essay for Vanity Fair: Londistan Calling.
Hitchens has gone out of his way to protect unpopular speech. I have to believe he would be against banning any speech, including that of Donald Trump.
