The British government has banned him from 1986 for being a racist and a troublemaker, I wonder when will the US come to their senses and do the same thing.

If you're going to "ban" somebody from your country based on those criteria, then we have more people to worry about than Farrakhan.

I think we should send him, Jackson, Sharpton and anyone else like them to the Antarctic. I think they could do a lot of good down there because it is almost 100% white.

Interesting....

On that web page, CNN's poll asking whether folks thought the UK Government was right in banning Farrakhan:

87% Yes
13% No

As much as I dislike Farrakhan, I do worry about governments placing restrictions on freedom of travel and freedom of speech, except in cases of national security.

Louis F. is not at British citizen and does not have an absolute right to enter or travel to the UK or and other foreign country. Pcmodem, in some other countries free speech and freedom of movement may be the least of your concerns. Maybe if Louis F. makes it to Libya he might want to stay there.

<< the Ghadafi Prize for Human Rights awarded to Minister Farrakhan in Tripoli. >>


Talk about irony, Reminds me of last week when China was bitching about how Israel was violating human rights.
