It's a strange world.

Outrage should be directed at the videos and their content not those posting them.

And there he is. You do know that at least one of these videos (see here) doesn't feature a Muslim don't you? You'd have thought the president of the US would be focusing his attention (such as it is) on North Korea testing ICBMs but baiting Muslims is more important to him it seems.

Yes I do know (it's being reported).

I suspect he is capable (only barley mind) of thinking about more than one thing at a time.

And you still think he doesn't deserve condemnation? I'm genuinely curious.

less than those in the videos wouldn't you agree?

Or is a muslim throwing someone of a building worth less condemnation that someone who would show a video of someone being thrown from a building? I'm genuinely curious.

Those videos are of questionable provenance and at least one is a known fake in the sense that it wasn't a Muslim kicking away the guys crutches. I somehow doubt you'd be saying the same if the PM was retweeting videos from Hamas.

I think when it's the President of the USA it's a bit more important than when, say, if you retweeted it!

If it were Jeremy Corbyn he'd be going apeshit.

But a Muslim who throws someone off a building isn't ever likely to be elected the president of the USA, is he?  FFS, doesn't it go without saying that there's almost universal condemnation of such an act in the UK!!!!!  However, what's at issue here is the President of the USA retweeting videos made by a far right group and of a dubious provenance.  The condemnation is fitting because an infinitely better standard of conduct is expected of the USA president than of a fucking terrorist!  Terrorists doing terrorist things come with the territory. 

Just for once, can you try not to be an apologist for the racist hard right?

Three million of us are Muslim.
The idea that Trump should now be invited here is abhorrent
I want May to say, quite clearly, that he will not be invited.
And remind him that we have hate laws.
