Now It’s “Travel Review”.

Khizr Khan, the Muslim American Gold Star father who famously railed against President Donald Trump at last year’s Democratic National Convention, has cancelled a planned speech he was scheduled to give in Toronto after being informed that the U.S. government is “reviewing” his travel privileges.



Late Sunday evening Khizr Khan, an American citizen for over 30 years, was notified that his travel privileges are being reviewed. As a consequence, Mr. Khan will not be traveling to Toronto on March 7th to speak about tolerance, understanding, unity and the rule of law. Very regretfully, Ramsay Talks must cancel its luncheon with Mr. Khan. Guests will be given full refunds.

Mr. Khan offered his sincere apologies to all those who made plans to attend on March 7th. He said: “This turn of events is not just of deep concern to me but to all my fellow Americans who cherish our freedom to travel abroad. I have not been given any reason as to why. I am grateful for your support and look forward to visiting Toronto in the near future.

This fairly SCREAMS unpresident pettiness. Full story here.

    Yeah. This is what I was afraid of happening when time comes I want to leave. Didn’t expect it to happen quite so soon.

    We are officially and formally second class citizens.

    Death camps just take a few years.

    “Oh hey! Don’t worry! We have rule of law” right. Sorry, I am going to worry anyway, because -- we don’t.

    What a load of petty crap, to pick on these people for no reason at all. **imagine all those bad words you can’t say in regular conversation here**

    I say fuck ’em sideways, Kestrel. Fuck shit piss and hell, and then I can start on German and Spanish.

    That “review” is what’s obscene.

    In 1938, the requirement was for all the jews to turn in their passports, which had a red J stamped on them, and they were then returned. Later, you could no longer leave Germany with such a passport, unless you bankrupted yourself with bribes. Then, the bribes didn’t work anymore.

    Travel privileges? WTF is the U.S. now, some sort of halfway house, where being a POC is equivalent to being a felon on parole?

    ….And in other hyperactive border agent news, a Canadian woman (native-born) has been told that she cannot travel to the US without an immigrant visa; funny, I’ve quite often gone back and forth across the border, nobody ever asked me for a visa of any kind… but then, i’m not the “wrong colour” (though I do spell colour wrong).

    Man, these people make me sick.

    I read this, and I had a hard time believing my eyes -- travel privileges? What is this? Are they afraid of what he’ll say while abroad? (Probably.) In which case it’s also a free speech issue. Among all the other fucked up issues.

    I think you spell colour just fine.]
