May refuses to rule out state visit despite latest bigotry

Thursday 17th August 2017

THERESA MAY came under fire yesterday for failing to cancel Donald Trump’s state visit following his failure to condemn Nazis at Saturday’s deadly march in Charlottesville.

The PM joined condemnation of Mr Trump’s comments on Tuesday in which he partly blamed antifascists for violent clashes at a white nationalist march.

Ms May said: “I see no equivalence between those who propound fascist views and those who oppose them. I think it is important for all those in positions of responsibility to condemn far-right views wherever we hear them.”

However, despite growing pressure she stopped short of cancelling Mr Trump’s state visit.

Shadow defence secretary Nia Griffith tweeted: “A state visit by Donald Trump would shame this country and betray all we stand for. Theresa May should revoke the invitation immediately.”

A Downing Street spokeswoman told the Star that there was “nothing to add” when asked whether Ms May would cancel Mr Trump’s invite.

Meanwhile, a demonstration against the US President’s “politics of warmongering, fear, hate and division” has been called by the Stand Up to Trump coalition and will take place this Saturday.

Novelist and poet Michael Rosen said that the “high-risk games that Trump is playing” could destroy the lives of millions.

Stand up to Trump spokeswoman Maz Saleem said: “Donald Trump has threatened to unleash a nuclear war in North Korea and military action against Venezuela.

“Meanwhile, the appalling events in Charlottesville show that his bigoted rhetoric is encouraging far-right extremism.”

The demonstration will take place from 12pm-1pm at the US embassy, Grosvenor Square, London.

On the Right are coward Nazis hiding their faces. Ku Klux Klan.

    MINORITY groups in the US Congress have urged President Donald Trump to fire three far-right nationalists from his coterie of White House advisers.

    In a letter dated Monday, the chairs of the Congressional black, Hispanic and Asian caucuses and the progressive caucus of left-leaning Democrats called for Steve Bannon, Stephen Miller and Sebastian Gorka to be sacked.

    Their demand followed Saturday’s killing of anti-fascist demonstrator Heather Heyer by a man attending a hundreds-strong neonazi march in Charlottesville, Virginia.

    “Americans deserve to know that white nationalists, white supremacists and neonazis are not in a position to influence US policy,” they said.

    Mr Gorka, born in London to Hungarian parents who fled after the failed 1956 anti-communist uprising, has formerly endorsed the now-banned Hungarian Guard, a violent antisemitic militia that formed the armed wing of Hungary’s right-wing nationalist Jobbik Party.

    While at Duke University, Mr Miller and the Duke Conservative Union helped fellow student Richard Spencer — a prominent fascist behind the violent neonazi Charlottesville protests on Saturday — raise funds for a debate on immigration policy.

    Mr Bannon, a figure so toxic that even right-wing media mogul Rupert Murdoch has urged the president to ditch him, is the former executive chairman of “news” website Breitbart, which spews out racist and misogynist opinion for its “alt-right” followers.

    Following criticism of his Saturday comments in which he emphasised the bigotry “on many sides” in Charlottesville, on Monday Mr Trump grudgingly narrowed down his condemnation: “Racism is evil — Those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including KKK, neonazis, white supremacists” and pledged to see those responsible for the violence prosecuted.

    On Monday night Mr Trump faced a protest outside the New York Trump Tower as he moved his temporary seat of government from his golf course in New Jersey.

    In Durham, North Carolina, anti-racist protesters toppled the figure of a Confederate soldier standing outside a local government office.

    Protester Isaiah Wallace said: “I feel like this is going to send shockwaves through the country and hopefully they can bring down other racist symbols.”
