I bet this Manxtyke tosses his sen off to Trump.
So if your Fuhrer liked Muslims, why don't you?
And being pro Palestine does not make anyone ant-semitic. You should know that, the far right hates both.
So how many turned up?
Didn't you see it all over the national news?
I'll tell you what I saw on the news. Reports of Trump's latest scheme. To remove the legislation introduced after the financial collapse in 2008 to reign in the banks recklessness and ensure such a disaster could never happen again.
In case you forgot that was the financial collapse that screwed every western economy and meant a decade of austerity. It meant governments had to cut back spending on health, education, policing, welfare etc etc. It meant you and I are poorer. Thanks to the total lack of integrity shown by a large number of financial institutions. The same institutions that you no doubt railed against when the Brexit debate was current.
Surprise surprise Trump and his fellow millionaire advisers want shut of those regulations.
And you're ignorant enough to come on here making snide comments about people who are concerned enough to want to put some sort of pressure, mainly via our own representatives, to try and stop him. Pathetic.
And I'm not even going to start on his other ridiculous policies. It would probably be pointless. I've no doubt you deny the evidence for climate change too or are of the opinion that it wont seriously affect anyone til after we're all dead so feck it why should you care.
By all means sit there and laugh. If you're stupid enough to think that decisions made in the US don't impact here then there's no hope for you.
Would you like to provide a credible source for that?
It's just left wing anti American and Western world hating rubbish. Do these professional protesters ever march and wave banners about the rulers of China , Pakistan, Middle Eastern Muslim countries where life is unbearable and oppressive. No because it doesn't fit there agenda .
So across the western world in recent weeks there have been literally millions of "professional" protesters. Really???? Must be costing someone an absolute fortune then. Or maybe it's just that they're people concerned about their future. And being concerned doesnt make you a "leftie" or a "pinko". Just someone who can put consecutive thoughts together.
For what it's worth I detest some of the ways Islam is used, particularly it's misogyny. It, like Christianity in the past, stands in the way of progress and enlightened thinking. However, in the West we have aspired to more advanced thinking and government. Based on facts and reason and science rather than ignorance, fear and superstition. What is appalling is seeing someone like Trump willing to roll back some of that progress that makes the west a better place to live.
Yet enough of the American public share his philosophies to put him in power in their country. I don't agree with a lot of things he's got into power on the back of but then I'm not an American with a right to vote there so it's none of my business. I don't think a rentamob rally by people in tweed jackets sharing a mushroom risotto in a town he's never heard of in a country he's got no ties to is going to change his political direction.
He's directing a review of the Dodd-Frank Act. But as this can only be re-written by congress, there's no need to panic just yet.
Also worth remembering this is a US regulation. The UK and EU brought in their own reforms after the financial crisis.
Thanks W1zz. I was alluding to that but my request for a credible source was directed at someone's assertion that all the anti Trump protests are funded by George Soros.
Good to see some people on here, the majority I expect, actually keep abreast of what's going on in the world.
Why are people protesting "rentamob"? Are they being paid? Why the snide reference to mushroom risotto and tweed jackets? So you can paint them as loony lefties? Just because you are insular enough to think what happens in the world has no repercussions in the Uk doesn't mean those who do are all left wing extremists. Does that make all who aren't protesting right wing fascists? No. Of course it doesn't.
Maybe professional marchers was the wrong term, I'll go for mob who'll turn up for any anti American protest but conveniently turn a blind eye against any dictator around the world or the horrific conditions in Muslim countries which make their populations want to leave and go to America.
These Muslim countries where women are made to wear capes, entirely cover their faces , get beheaded in the street , total oppression to one of our sexes, countries where anyone of a different religion or faith face persecution or murder. But no protests , banner waving feet stamping or wailing for these poor people. No it's a mass protest against a 90 day ban while rules and regulations are reviewed.
I wouldnt argue with your arguments against oppression in those countries. I'd imagine there ARE demonstrations against them quite often in London. However, we all know that most Middle Eastern regimes are entirely impervious to protest. However, protests against what Trump is doing may just temper the way people like Theresa May deal with him when she always has one eye on getting re elected at the next General Election.
So Soros resistance anarchists..... are pi55ed off that Trump blocked immigration from countries that Obama bombed? ..right..
Oh and watch out for the Fake News on C4 News next week....that should be good, 10 times worse than the BBC.They are the biggest set of lefty liberal shysters nutcases, going.. most things they report are bias propaganda lies.. that feed the separatist flams..
I've never heard of a rally against these countries .
IMO the people should be focusing their anger and frustration on the country's immigrants are trying to leave rather than ones which are trying to work out what to do with them .
That opinion is Only if your a right wing nut job
Ah, we're back to the left wing BBC again. I wondered how long it would be before that came up.
Is that the BBC who have just appointed as editor of the Today programme, probably the BBC's flagship news programme, the ex editor of The Sunday Telegraph? A right wing broadsheet. No doubt you can criticise it for appointing a woman in the role though. Leftist politically correct move no doubt.
I barely understand any of that but it appears that you're accusing George Soros of being a left wing anarchist. Interesting.
