Canadian Activist Speaks Out After Being Banned From UK For Posting Posters Saying ‘Allah Is Gay’
Canadian 'activist' Laura Southern has received a lifetime ban from the UK after authorities accused her of distributing racist material.
The 'alt-right' campaigner was keen to see what would happen if she started posting posters around Luton saying 'Allah is gay' and 'Allah is trans'.
She says it was a 'social experiment', which seems to be today's phrase used by people who do whatever the fuck they want all in the name of anthropology.
You don't have to be an expert in the Koran to know that Allah is pretty revered in the Muslim world, so it's not hard to guess that Southern's posters didn't go down well.
Not only did members of the Luton community confront her, but her and her pals were quickly addressed by the police. They told her what she was doing was a Public Order Offence and told her to pull down the posters before a 'situation' started where people 'could get injured'.
Southern was warned if she didn't pull them down, she'd be arrested.
Sure enough, they shut down their wee stall.
While she wasn't arrested during that incident, the Mirror says she was detained at the border crossing in Calais under the Terrorism Act earlier this month. It's reported that it was here she was told she was banned from entering the UK.
A UK Home Office spokesperson told the newspaper: "Border Force has the power to refuse entry to an individual if it is considered that his or her presence in the UK is not conducive to the public good."
They just locked me out and said "au revoir"... Officially banned from UK for "racism".. doing fine though, all the cool people are being banned anyway :wink:
Need to gather my thoughts and call family. Interrogation story is pretty crazy though. Will tell it soon. pic.twitter.com/mARtkyZKFm

Southern says her 'social experiment' was sparked when she saw an article online saying that 'Jesus was gay'. She was confused about why there wasn't an outpouring of rage in response to the article and so wanted to see what reaction she'd get if she swapped Jesus with Allah and the internet with Luton.
In a video posted to her YouTube channel, she says: "This highlights a monumental double standard in Western societies, why is it racist to say Allah is gay, but not Jesus is gay?"
While she's attracted criticism for a few years, Southern copped an absolute battering for a mission she was a part of in May last year.
She took part in an attempt to block an NGO ship from leaving Sicily that was about to start a search and rescue mission for a migrant vessel that has sunk off the shores of Northern Africa.
