London protests aren’t just about Trump, they’re about everything he stands for

One of the biggest protests is just ignoring him. We know how sensitive he is about crowd numbers.

People were to afraid to go because of the violence of your protesters -

There was just banter going on between the two groups when your lot attacked this man.


Then look what they did to this poor old thing

Well, Khan is one of them Muslims.

That's a reason.

It's not a good reason.

But it's a reason.
Knife crime, on children, and acid attacks ( brought here from Bangladesh) as a means to mug people and or against women specifically have sky rocketed under Khan - he has admitted to having lost at least 400 returning ISIS fighters known to be in London. As a lawyer he only defended Muslim terrorists, many of whom count him as a friend - great for diversity.

Slavery was The Bank of England's baby. Slavery was, even then, illegal in Britain - tough sadly the British were allowed to own slaves abroad.
Yea. But it wasn’t just slavery. The colonization of India and other places. Then they did stuff like strapping people to cannons. The brits were ruthless.

All Empires were but those the East India Company ousted, The Mughals, were much worse, by all accounts, ( I think that particular Islamic invasion is supposed to have been responsible for the slaughter of over 100 million Indians, according to Indians). The idea always was that if the minority power were incredibly cruel to a handful of rebels, or even just one, then the masses would stay peaceful and not rebel --- it didn't always work but that was the idea - some pretty horrible things were done visa versa, too. The British were not hated all over India though and we did fall in love with the place, we also left behind something of worth, but WWII bankrupted us and our parting was badly managed - partition was particularly regrettable - sadly many many horrors were inflicted by man drawing lines on maps whilst sitting in their clubs in St James, in those days - and probably still are.

And as soon as your country goes soft and lies on it's back, Obama's years as an example, you start to erode your own country. China's increase is juxtaposed to the West's decline.

I personally think China is only going to experience so much growth due to the population size. I’m curious what will happen as they grow.

It seems to me, though we come out of very different histories and social structures in the first place, that many of America's woes now and almost all of ours have come out of central gov ( plus the EU in our case) having usurped control of local governance ( States in the US and the municipalities here ) whereas modern China has come out of a system wherein Central Government did and does have a strong controlling hand. Said just as an observation..
