UK Green party leader says it should NOT be a crime to join ISIS

Natalie Bennett

The Green party does not believe people should be banned from joining ISIS or Al Qaeda, its leader claimed today.

Natalie Bennett said people should not be punished for what they think and stressed it should ‘not be a crime simply to belong to an organisation’

More than 600 people from Britain are thought to have travelled to Syria and Iraq to join jihadists, with security forces warning returning fighters pose the biggest terror threat to Britain.

The Green party has seen a surge in support in recent months, doubling from 5 per cent saying they would back them in October to 10 per cent in a recent YouGov survey…

    ‘not be a crime simply to belong to an organization[sic]’

    Aren’t these the same group of people that advocated “getting rid of” of climate change skeptics from government solely because they held beliefs contrary to theirs?
    See point 6 of their glorious 10-pint plan.

      Reeducation camps still not on the agenda?

      they ‘feel’ they know what’s best for all of us. I hate that.

    Very accurate descriptive noun:
    “A sociopath of greens.”

    • Frau Katze

      Why does a concern about some (real) environmental problems make people into kooks?

      • Hktony

        Because greens are Marxists !

          The baits they use while trolling for suckers are very flexible when it comes to appearance. But the hooks used are strong and capable.

        Thy aren’t interested in the true big picture, just their narrow view. fix one touchy-feely ‘problem’ ignore the rest and create more.

        Following their logical reasoning, gets you to their ultimate fix , fewer people.

    It’s not a crime to be a serial killer. Until they catch you.

    I would agree with her if this included deportation to Syria and cancellation of citizenship. I think she might be on to something!

    But I’ll wager she thinks it’s a crime to belong to PEGIDA, the Tea Party, or being a Christian or a Jew, among other things.

    Bennett should be dropped in the middle of a Muslim hellhole.

    Boy, is there a lot of phuctards in British politics. This one’s got a face that’s just begging to be slapped. Imagine waking up to that (sans makeup) every morning.

    Pandering for the muslim vote. A quisling.

    Jyllands Posten translated by Vlad really nails this phenomenon – “Europe’s Downfall”. Bookmark and re-post. Everyone needs to understand, and yet very few really do.

    She says people should not be punished for what they think, but that is not what these eco-fascists believe. In their eyes dissenting from their agenda should be criminalised. Still I would concur that no one should be punished for what they think, but they should be held accountable for what they do and punished when they break the law. Oh, I know she is just yet another political whore saying whatever it takes to get votes and cannot be taken seriously.

      Hitler was a terrible speaker when it came to presenting organized, logical, persuasive, content to the masses. His theatrical presentation and “honesty” which carried him from nowhere to German leader were a revolutionary gambit for the times, only rivaled by a few other nazis and communists.

      • MRHapla

        Imagine the horror if Hitler had teleprompters.

    If there was any justice in the world, it’s women like this who would be gang raped over and over again by the thugs of ISIS instead of the innocent Yazidi, Kurdish and Christian girls of Iraq. But I don’t think this Green woman has ever had to worry about rape once in her entire life.

    Does the ‘green’ in ‘Green Party’ refer to their unripened brains?

    The Left, the Greens etc hate the West. Thus, the enemy of my enemy,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
