Crocodile Tears: Southern White Nationalist Matthew Heimbach banned from traveling to the UK

Via the Southern Poverty Law Center:


"Matthew Heimbach, an American white nationalist, has been banned from the United Kingdom on the grounds that his presence may “foster hatred which might lead to inter-community violence in the UK.”
Heimbach, 25, is president of the Traditionalist Youth Network and training director for the neo-Confederate League of the South (LOS). He received notice of his banishment earlier this week in a letter citing his southern nationalism, along with several speeches containing “White Supremacist, anti-Semitic, racist, and homophobic rhetoric and imagery.”"

"The letter, issued on behalf of Theresa May, the home secretary for the UK’s Home Department, explains Britain’s Unacceptable Behavior Policy regarding extremists. Using Heimbach’s own words as evidence, the letter highlights his reference to homosexuality as a “deviant lifestyle” and multiple anti-Semitic declarations that the “enemy is the ‘international Jew…. Because they want to destroy us all.”
Heimbach’s participation in organized hate dates back to his time as a student at Towson University where he founded a chapter of the white nationalist student organization Youth for Western Civilization. Heimbach turned the chapter into the much-publicized White Student Union.
Heimbach was planning to travel to England to speak at a private event before he received notice that he was not welcome and would be “refused admission on arrival” if he were to try to travel to the UK. The ban will be reviewed in 3 to 5 years.
“I am now banned from England for being a nationalist while 10ks of radical Muslims are welcomed. #EnglandYoureDrunk”, Heimbach complained on his Twitter page yesterday."

"Michael Cushman, chairman of the South Carolina chapter of LOS and a former member of the neo-Nazi National Alliance, received a similar letter this week, according to an exchange on Facebook."



The Anti-Defamation League is also reporting on Heimbach's big ban tonight.




Restoring the honor!

  1. "The list of unacceptable behaviors covers any non-UK national whether in the UK or abroad who uses any means or medium including running a website [or] using a position of responsibility such as a teacher ... to express views that ... foster hatred...."

    Guess that means you and Simpson can't travel to the UK.

    1. I don't see why not, I've never advocated hatred or violence against anyone.

    2. Not advocated. FOSTER. Yes, you express views that foster hatred for the Southern heritage community, and often, individuals in it.

    3. I don't express views that "foster" hatred either. I'm not really sure how you get there from someone who denounced hatred, hate groups, racism, violence, sexism, homophobia, and who advocates peace, love and inclusion. I think what you don't realize (or don't want to) is that humans naturally don't like people like yourself. They find your ideology hateful and repulsive. But there is nothing I do here that fosters hatred. People just don't like you because you're a terrible person full of hate, and they recognize it because of all of the hateful things you say. I have a right to tell people about that. Why don't you want me to enjoy my First Amendment rights just like you?
