    It appears that the UK immigration office is being run by “asylum seekers” likely to see ordinary conservatives as racial or religious “enemies” judging by the substandard use of language and mounting bans.

    The letter they were given by UK authorities was riddled with crude grammar mistakes, including “your boyfriend Martin Sellner speech”, “your boyfriend have in his possession” and “likely to insight tensions”.

    The letter in pidgin English

    The Times newspaper in London alerted the reading public to affirmative action appointments to the judiciary already some years ago. A British woman of Indian descent, told the daily that the race card was being played in recruitment to legal firms and to the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS).

    “The frustration and resentment this generates is aired in private. In the pubs near chambers you often hear tales of friends finding themselves up against lawyers who can barely speak English and are unable to grasp complex points of law,” she noted.

    A judge told her that he and his colleagues were scared to criticise the appointments for fear of being called “racist” she said. In London, the CPS is crowded with people from ethnic minorities.

    Pettibone and Sellner, meanwhile were held in solitary confinement in a detention center for criminals, because, according to UK officials they had planned a “right wing speech” in London.

    Sellner told the Austrian media of their ordeal: “We were handcuffed, locked up in a cell with criminals, not allowed to talk to each other, etc. We were treated like criminals. Thought criminals. ”

    On their release, members of the Identitarian Movement were waiting for the couple at the airport in Vienna, cheering at their arrival and shouting: “Patriotism is not a crime”.

    Sellner remarked that his arrest was a farce, since it was “the only time border control worked in Europe”. Illegals, rapists or terrorists are allowed into the EU and the UK, but they have managed to keep out “challenging ideas” he said.

    Sellner had wanted to give a speech on freedom of speech in London at Speaker’s Corner. After arriving in London on Friday, they were both arrested by the police.

    The couple were due to talk at Speaker’s Corner but the British government arrested and deported them. Tommy Robinson, their host, tweeted that he would deliver Sellner’s speech on Sunday 18 March at 3pm at Speaker’s Corner in Hyde Park instead. He asked the public to support him. Brittany had planned an interview with the former head of the English Defense League, Robinson.

    Some 425 ISIS fighters have been allowed back into Britain, because they were declared “no longer a national security concern” by the government, Robinson said. “This is unbelievable . The Home Office arrested and detained a female American journalist for three days before deporting her, they gave her paper work claiming I am a far-right leader who incites racial hatred. If I incite ‘racial’ hatred then take me to court and try me you liars,” he challenged the authorities.

    Ramzpaul, an American conservative social media personality, dryly remarked on the treatment meted out to reporters in the UK: “I never again want to hear the UK bitch about how Russia treats journalists.” His comments come in the wake of another conservative American journalist being detained.

    Popular conservative YouTuber, Lauren Southern has also been detained and refused entry to Britain. “They just locked me out and said ‘au revoir’… Officially banned from UK for ‘racism’.. doing fine though, all the cool people are being banned anyway,” Southern tweeted.

    She is being investigated under Schedule 7, which is the Terrorism Act, because of alleged “racism” in Calais. Pettibone and Sellner were held at Luton and then Heathrow Airports.

    Journalist Chris Tomlinson confirmed that Southern was being held in Calais, and being asked about her relationship to Pettibone and a recent speech she gave to the youth movement of Vlaams Belang, the Flemish anti-immigration party . Her phone was also taken away, he said.

    The Identitarian Movement Austria (IBÖ) has condemned the arrest of its co-leader Martin Sellner in London. “Gradually, you realize that the identitarian idea is gaining in energy, because now speakers like Martin Sellner are seen as a threat to the establishment and locked away,” said IBÖ CEO Luca Kerbl.

    According to Kerbl, the officials accused Sellner of using his speech to call for violence and cause public upheaval. The IBÖ rejected these allegations. The arrest is about “locking away critical voices,” Kerbl noted.

    “It is precisely on the margins of what can be said that freedom of expression really exists, and that is no longer the case in certain countries, such as Turkey and England. That’s why it’s important to fight for freedom of expression, ” he warned.

    In October 2017, UK Home Secretary Amber Rudd announced a move to crack down on what citizens are permitted to view on the internet. Piloted as part of a campaign against “radicalisation”, Rudd stated that the government would be tightening the law.

    UK citizens caught reading such internet content could face up to 15 years in jail, just for looking at the websites. Rudd stated “I want to make sure those who view despicable terrorist content online, including jihadi websites, far-right propaganda and bomb-making instructions, face the full force of the law.” So far she has only singled out conservative websites for censorship.
