Liberal Conspiracy: Campaign to stop two US bloggers joining EDL rally

The anti-fascist campaign group Hope Not Hate has started a petition to stop two American bloggers from being given permission to enter the UK.

A letter to the Home Secretary Theresa May focuses on Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer. It says:

Dear Home Secretary,

We are writing to urge you to use the powers, at your disposal, to stop Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer from entering the country in order to speak at an English Defence League demonstration in Woolwich on Saturday 29th June. We believe that their ultimate objective is to incite hatred against all Muslims and the consequences of their very presence in the UK will give encouragement to racists and extremists, who seek to use the awful murder of Drummer Lee Rigby to further their hateful agenda.

It alleges that an organisation set up by Geller and Spencer ran ads on buses calling Muslims “savages”.

The letter by Hope Not Hate says that in a democracy “there have to be limits on people abusing these freedoms to incite hatred” – and adds that they believe Geller and Spencer are seeking to do just that.

HnH have also published two profile pieces on Pamela Geller and on Robert Spencer summarising their backgrounds and campaigns.
