Sadiq Khan Rejects [t]Rump’s Offer To Be The ‘Exception’ To Muslim Ban

Remember when Donald [t]Rump said we should ban all Muslims from entering the country because Muslims are terrorists and we need to protect ourselves from “them”?

Yeah, that was shortly before the people of London elected Sadiq Khan, a :::gasp::: Muslim, as their mayor.

And so, of course, [t]Rump instantly backtracked and said there would always be “exceptions” to his discrimination; I guess, like Hispanics, he believes there are some good Muslims?

But Mayor Khan isn’t having it:
 “This isn’t just about me. It’s about my friends, my family, and everyone who comes from a background similar to mine, anywhere in the world. … ”Donald Trump’s ignorant view of Islam could make both our countries less safe.”
And Sadiq Khan goes further, saying that [t]Rump risks alienating mainstream Muslims around the world and playing into the hands of the extremists.
“Donald Trump and those around him think that western liberal values are incompatible with mainstream Islam – London has proved him wrong.”
And hopefully America will agree with Sadiq Khan come November when we overwhelmingly send him back to the reality TV shows, the bankruptcy and divorce courts from whence he came.

Just sayin’.

Muslims are not terrorists; Donald [t]Rump is more terror-inducing.

I don't know how widely it's known outside these shores but Mr Khan has been an inspiring model for supporting LGTB issues, including even voting in favour of equal marriage. His positive record in that respect has, unsurprisingly, not exactly endeared him to many of his fellow Muslim Londoners - though he did actually receive a good many of their votes for his election, as against the acidly hostile and pretty much racist campaign of the official Conservative candidate.
The LGTB 'community' are unlikely to forget his friendly acts. I'd not be at all surprised if he walks in this year's London Pride parade. In fact I'd be more surprised if he doesn't!

Glad to see you back! I did hear that Mayor Khan was flying the LGBT flag today in honor of the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia. Good on him!

Pleasure to BE back, Bob - but only hanging on by my fingernails until I have the new laptop in my lap. Just found out that I can't access Dr Spo's blog as well as Sassybear's now. But yours has obviously escaped the witch's curse - so far - so it's not entirely negative by any means.

I heard this on the news the other and yet again appalled. If he wins as President, hopefully not, I swear we won't have ant allies or friends. He alienate the whole world with his toad like mouth.

No doubt Donald J Trump will nuke London when he comes to power to get Sadiq back for the nasty stuff he said about the spoilt bankrupt
