England Bans Two US Bloggers from Entering Country

Two prominent US bloggers have been banned from entering the UK, the Home Office has said.

Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer co-founded anti-Muslim group Stop Islamization of America.

They were due to speak at an English Defence League march in Woolwich, where Drummer Lee Rigby was killed.

A government spokesman said individuals whose presence "is not conducive to the public good" could be excluded by the home secretary.

    I'ma guess it was someone who also banned other speech, right?

    The country is literally experiencing a multi-cultural meltdown.

    The noble leaders have presided over a very serious problem when it comes to very angry, very violent, home grown Mozlems. It wasn't supposed to be this way! It was supposed to be all happy clappy!

    So obviously...let's ban free speech! Otherwise, there's gonna be some more decaptitations and it'll be OUR fault.

    The Muslims will rule England soon. NOT because they are aggressive, on balance according to crime stats less so than the population that produces chavs, but because the English are weak. They will see their calm and friendly Muslim neighbors and tremble in fear and throw them the keys to the castle and then go hide under a rock.
