UK Teen Banned From the USA
Guess he has learned you do not insult the Great One we call president. Just a few days ago, after a night filled with drinking and watching a 9-11 special, 17 year old Luke Angel decided to send an email to the president where he let him know he thought he was a prick.
A British teenager who sent an e-mail to the White House calling President Obama a "pr*ck" was banned from the U.S. for life, The Sun reported Monday.
The FBI asked local cops to tell college student Luke Angel, 17, that his drunken insult was "unacceptable."
Angel claims he fired off a single e-mail criticizing the U.S. government after seeing a television program about the 9/11 attacks.
He said, "I don’t remember exactly what I wrote as I was drunk. But I think I called Barack Obama a pr*ck. It was silly — the sort of thing you do when you’re a teenager and have had a few."
Now we could get into the whole debate on whether or not we should tolerate a foreign national insulting our president even if we agree with the insult he handed out, but that would be a never ending debate. But what I find puzzling is that no threat was given or implied and in fact, other than being an attack on the presidents policy, the word Prick was the only personal attack lobbed at our esteemed leader. But somehow this is enough to not only ban this young man for life from the USA, but to use our tax dollars to fly FBI agents over to the UK to question this young man. It was almost as if calling the enlightened one a prick was on par with being a terrorist. Oh that is right, we have those operating websites, newspapers, bulletins, etc in this country who are both citizens and non citizens, yet they are left completely alone due to the 1st Amendment. Guess the first amendment only applies when you trash this country, trash its way of life, trash its citizens, call for jihad, as long as you do not call the new messiah a prick.
I guess I write this with one question in mind, although I am sure I will never receive an answer. If this young man warranted a permanent ban from this country for simply calling the idiot child a prick, were all the foreign folks who called Bush much worse, even went as far as calling for his death, also permanently banned from this country and did they receive the dreaded raid by the FBI as well? Since I will never get an answer to that, I will safely assume the answer is no and as long as you call any republican a prick or much worse you will be just fine. But if you dare to call the current guy anything less than Jesus, you will be banned.
At least we all know where we stand!
