After Twitter Ban UKIP London MEP Hits Back: ‘Suspended Because I said Islam Is Death Cult… Well It Still Is’

London UKIP MEP Gerard Batten has gone on the offensive after a week’s ban from micro-blogging site Twitter for calling Islam a “death cult”, doubling down on his original remarks.

    Yet Twitter has no problem with ISIS.

    I like the cut of this guy’s jib. I wonder if he wants to be king of Canada.

  • Literally Hitler

    Never heard of him before this but I’m suddenly a fan.

    Good. He knows what he is talking about and won’t be cowed. A much needed warrior. Good for Kassam and Hobbs also mentioned in the article.

      It would be wonderful if somebody stood up in Canada like this. But there’s no way, Canadians have been far too … what’s the word? … Trudeau-fied.

    If only he were the leader of the CPC, well one can wish.

      The conservatives have become liberal lite, like the progressive conservatives before them. It’s time for a new Reform Party, or better yet, a BC independence party.

        I would like to see a Canada Party or Canadian Heritage Party on the federal level. While I would love to see a BC Independence Party, the urban voters, women, minorities and metrosexual, outnumber the rest of us and would rather die than renounce their love for leftist political parties. I suggested several years ago to the Christian Heritage Party that they would gain more members and support if they broadened their mandate to be the Canadian Heritage Party which would be more welcoming to non Christians who otherwise support their platform. They chose to reject my suggestion, which, I believe, lost them more potential members. There are many minorities who hold very conservative values but are not Christian who would otherwise find the platform of the CHP very attractive. I include myself. It isn’t a matter of being anti-Christian at all, but just that I cannot personally idendfy with the label.
