We Can't Ban Everything That Offends You- Julie Bindel Video

Julie Bindel, a British lesbian feminist political commentator, talks about how we must NOT ban everything that offends, including banning Donald Trump visiting England.

"Banning people from publicly stating their views does not make those views disappear." 

 What banning does do is:

"blind us to the existence of the attitude that he articulates."

"Let us hear the argument put forward by those with whom we disagree, so that we can expand our knowledge and show rational resistance. This problem is getting worse and worse. we're in danger of making censorship the standard response to any view which offends. Unless someone is breaking the law by inciting with their words, I believe it is a crime not to hear them."

Well said Julie!

She also happens to not support gay-marriage.

Brit Hijabi Suing Kit Kat Makers For Waferless Candy Bar

Some Brit Hijabi is suing the makers of Kit Kat because she bought a package that did not include the wafers. She wants a lifetime supply for her pain and suffering, or as she put it:

"The loss I have suffered is of monetary and emotional significance.."

The Muslim 20-year-old law student, Saima Ahmad, sent a letter to Nestle company demanding the following:

The truth of the matter is; manufacturers owe a duty of care to consumers.
‘The specific duty you owe in consistency in your manufacturing process. The failure to take due care in the manufacturing process resulted in a product being defective.
‘As a result I feel as though I have been misled to part with my money and purchase a product that is clearly different from what has been marketed by Nestle.
‘The loss I have suffered is of monetary and emotional significance.
‘I would like a full refund of the defective pack of KitKat I purchased. I have also lost my faith in Nestle.
‘Clearly, if I wanted to purchase a confectionery item that is purely chocolate, I would have purchased a bar of Galaxy.
‘I would therefore like to request a life-long supply of KitKat so that I can act as a means of quality control – it appears you need me more than I need you
Saima is using an old 1930s law to back up her demands.

This has got to be a joke, but one never knows. There are a plethora of frivolous law suits that wind up in courts.
