SNOWFLAKE Amber Rudd got a taste of her own medicine last night after she was de-platformed at Oxford University.
The ex-Home Secretary who famously banned right-wing journalists and activists from Britian during her tenure told Oxford students to “stop hiding and start engaging” after she was “no-platformed” 30 minutes before an event.
Rudd was due to speak at the UN Women Oxford event for International Women’s Day, but was blocked after the student society voted to cancel it.
She took to Twitter and moaned: “Badly judged & rude of some students last night at Oxford to decide to “no platform” me 30 mins before an event I had been invited to for #IWD2020 to encourage young women into politics.”
“They should stop hiding and start engaging. #FreeSpeech“
UN Women Oxford posted on its Facebook page: “Following a majority vote in committee, tonight’s event with speaker Amber Rudd has been cancelled.
“We are deeply sorry for all and any hurt caused to our members and other wom*n and non binary people in Oxford over this event.”.
MAYBE Amber Rudd now knows what it feels like to have your free-speech curtailed.
When she was Home Secretary, the anti-Free speech MP banned Lauren Southern, Martin Sellner and Brittany Pettibone from the UK.
Whilst Politicalite never agreed with the three, we still believed they had a right to free speech.
Southern received a LIFETIME BAN from the UK because she handed out leaflets that claimed “Allah is gay.”
The Canadian Activist and Journalist said the Home Office had permanently banned her because she had been “caught distributing racist leaflets in Luton town centre.”
Southern was detained at Calais when she tried to re-enter the UK on March 13 sparking outrage among many young Tories at the time.
She was held under the Terrorism Act and banned from entering because her actions presented ‘a threat to the fundamental interests of society and public policy of the United Kingdom’.
Responding to the ban Southern said: “‘Why do the rights of Muslims to be homophobic trump the rights of gay people to have their self-expression?”
She also said the UK “needs to have a conversation about this before they’re no longer able to have a conversation at all”
The move led to us supporting UKIP at the time to back free speech.
Years later after Rudd’s weak and unstable Government collapsed, and was replaced by a real right wing operation, Rudd is crying because she’s now the victim of anti-Free speech zealots.
Politicalite still believes Rudd deserves free-speech, and she shouldn’t have been de-platformed… but maybe now Rudd knows just exactly how it feels.
