I'm a bit confused, but I did read the article 3 times to make sure. Nowhere in the article does it say this gentleman is a British citizen. If I were in Norway teaching "English as a Second Language" I would be a Norwegian school teacher, but a US citizen.
He had a "valid" visa is all it says, and the protectorate ban cancelled those visas so it was no longer valid.
I can surmise from the op-ed piece that this gentleman was a passport carrying citizen from one of the 7 nations mentioned in the ban, working in Great Britain that got caught up in the political mess caused by the terrorist movement. We need to view these issues from all sides using all the information rather than the information cherry picked to promote a political agenda.
I don't see myself as a bigot against anyone, BUT on a dark street, a small group of "people" are coming down the street all wearing hoodies. I can't tell if they are male or female, white or black, young or old, Muslim or Christian, And I guess it wouldn't make much difference if they were wearing ski masks, hoodies, or scarves, their identity is hidden. Well, like 99% of the people in this country, at least, when someone wishes to hide their identity they are most likely involved in an agenda. Everyone has a fear of the unknown, one cannot be blamed for that, it's the hallmark of self-preservation.
Young kids wear hoodies..... I have a hoodie too. Does that make me up to something nefarious? One doesn't know and that invokes fear and a fearful reaction. It's only natural. Unless it's necessary,
It would be nice to know the whole story of this school teacher, but for some reason, all the facts are not exposed in the article which would indicates something is being purposefully left out or hidden from the reader. Are we not back full circle to fear of the unknown?
