British leaders hysterical after Trump retweets Britain First
British premier Theresa May has condemned US president Donald Trump for retweeting to his 43.6 million Twitter followers, three anti-Muslim videos posted by the deputy leader of Britain First. May's official spokesperson called Trump’s actions "wrong" and Twitter lit up with British indignation.

The three videos Trump retweeted from Jaydan Fransen of Britain First showed a group of Muslims pushing a boy off a roof, Muslims destroying a statue of the Virgin Mary, and a Muslim hitting a Dutch boy on crutches.
British Labour party leader, Jeremy Corbyn, as well as other members of parliament called for Trump’s planned state visit to be cancelled. Corbyn labelled the tweets “abhorrent, dangerous and a threat to our country”.
On Wednesday, May’s spokesman issued a statement declaring: “Britain First seeks to divide communities by their use of hateful narratives that peddle lies and stoke tensions. They cause anxiety to law-abiding people. British people overwhelmingly reject the prejudiced rhetoric of the far right which is the antithesis of the values this country represents, decency, tolerance and respect.”
Justin Welby, the archbishop of Canterbury, called the tweets “deeply disturbing” and said the US leader had “chosen to amplify the voice of far-right extremists”.
The Muslim Council of Britain called it “the clearest endorsement yet from the US President of the far-right”.
British Communities Secretary Sajid Javid said the US president had “endorsed the views of a vile, hate-filled racist organisation”.
This morning Trump rt’d 3 anti-Muslim videos posted by Britain First, far-right, ultra-nationalist political group known for Islamophobia.

Jaydan Fransen thanked Trump for the retweets. “Thanks for the retweets @realDonaldTrump,” she responded. “I’m facing prison for criticising Islam. Britain is now Sharia compliant, I need your help!”
White House press secretary, Sarah Sanders, dismissed concerns about the credibility of the videos. “Whether it’s a real video, the threat is real.”
Trump has meanwhile hit back at Theresa May’s criticism of his retweets, calling on May to rather focus on terrorism. “Theresa, don’t focus on me, focus on the destructive Radical Islamic Terrorism that is taking place within the United Kingdom. We are doing just fine!”
During her “slapstick conference speech” in October, British daily The Telegraph noted that May had been wearing a bracelet bearing the image of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo, Leon Trotsky’s girlfriend. “We’re usually the first to proclaim that a female politician’s accessories aren’t as interesting as her policies. But, in this instance, we can’t help but feel Mrs May was trying to send a message.”
Kahlo became famous only because she had had an affair with the Soviet mass-murderer Leon Trotsky – an icon also to Jeremy Corbyn – while Trotsky was hiding in Mexico.
The Russian civil war that turned Trotsky into one of the century’s leading amateur generals also unleashed his capacities as a killing machine. The sailors at Kronstadt, when speaking out, were massacred on his order.
Trotsky had a direct responsibility for the mass killings and atrocities committed by the Red Army. Industrial-scale murder had been an essential part of the murderous Bolshevik and rabbit farmer’s theory. He claimed to have carried out killings in the name of “class struggle” against the bourgeoisie; though usually the commissars are themselves from the middle-classes, and the most numerous victims have tended to be the working-classes.
In the Eighties, Corbyn however called for the “complete rehabilitation” of Trotsky. In 1988, the Labour leader – then a backbencher – demanded the Marxist revolutionary and other communists have their achievements formally recognised by the Russian state. Trotsky’s idea of permanent revolution, still deeply appeals to Corbynites.
When it became clear that the vast crime called the collectivization of agriculture would involve a massacre of the peasantry, Trotsky’s only criticism was that Stalin’s campaign was not sufficiently “militarized”, meaning that Stalin had not killed enough poor Russians.
