You guys know I’m not one for politics but this disgusts me. First read this
Britain First is a far-right hate group in the UK that spreads misinformation and tries to spread hatred. Led by Paul Golding and Jayda Fransen, this group is anti-abortion, anti-immigration, anti-culture mixing, etc. They’ve posted videos on social media of Pakistani cricket players celebrating a victory after a match and labelled it as terrorists rejoicing. Also the descriptions of the videos Trump retweeted aren’t accurate... the “Muslim migrant” beating up the boy on crutches isn’t Muslim nor a migrant.
There should be zero tolerance for someone with the power and authority of President of ANY country, let alone the United States, who shares this kind of bigotry and hateful posts on social media. By promoting this woman and her activist group he’s enabling thousands of those who believe in supremacy. Which is quite ironic cause the United States and the UK have storied histories of immigrants who have helped build their respective countries socially, economically, scientifically, culturally, and academically.
I don’t want this to sound like yet another anti-Trump post on the internet but I really hope there are ramifications for this. It’s spiteful, dangerous, and incredibly naive. It sickens me there are people who will still go balls to the wall to support this lunacy. There are also some very well documented examples of Trump’s racist history... such as not allowing black people to rent Trump owned apartments, the way he has referred to people as “my Hispanics” and “my African-Americans,” calling Elizabeth Warren “Pocahontas,” calling Mexicans “rapists,” etc.
