American citizens are (more or less) protected from government action when engaging in speech that may be offensive to others, especially when the “others” are government representatives. For the time being, we still enjoy the ability to burn a Koran or Bible anytime we please and to write a blog critical of government leaders if we so chose.
The same is not true for citizens of other countries. A SkyNews reports that when Luke Angel of Silsoe, Bedfordshire, England wrote a drunken email to the President of the United States, police were dispatched to his home. According to Angel, police took his photograph and advised him that he was “banned from America forever”.
Luke Angel was reprimanded by police on both sides of the Atlantic after firing off a drunken message to the White House calling the president a “prick”.
The FBI intercepted the message and contacted police in the UK who went to see the 17-year-old at his home in Silsoe, Bedfordshire.
Luke, a college student, is now on a list of people who are banned from visiting the States.
The teenager told the Bedfordshire On Sunday newspaper that he had sent the email after watching a TV programme about September 11.
When asked about the ban, Luke said: “I don’t really care. My parents aren’t very happy about it.
A Bedfordshire Police spokesman said: “The individual sent an email to the White House full of abusive and threatening language.

The full context of the email sent to President Obama has not yet been released, though with the President’s pre-election transparency commitment to the American people, we are anxiously awaiting it’s release at any moment.
Citizens of the world are undoubtedly curious as to what they can or can’t say about the American President or Congressional members should they ever consider visiting the United States.
Wide open borders? violent international drug cartels? Known terrorists without passports being helped onto planes by the U.S. State Department? Clearly these issues pale in comparison to that of the insult brandishing email wielding teens sitting in their English suburban bedrooms.

The lobbing of insults across international borders can clearly get one banned from ever crossing into sovereign U.S. territory and likely lead to immediate deportation if violated.Â However, the illegal crossing by non-registered aliens over our southern border, as well as illegal aliens’ use of free health care, education and housing funded by the U.S. taxpayer remains acceptable public policy.
It`s just a kid …. Nuff said.
Long live freedom of speech…
“…all Americans…need to watch what they say, watch what they do.” — Presidential Press Secy Ari Fliescher
Apparently, the Brits weren’t warned like we were.
Comments….. Jeez, I’m surprised I haven’t been thrown in jail by now.Â I’ll keep talking and showing what hypocrites they are.Â They seem to know what’s best for the rest of us all the while they enjoy going about their lives doing whatever they wish.Â Go to the polls in November and let’s stop them!
Well he did break the 11th commandment, Thou shalt not criticize his eminence Barry Soetoro!!!
Obama is a prick.Â What’s wrong with that?Â
Do I have to leave now?
Bill, I don’t know if Obama is a prick. He seems like a nice enough guy. He just has his head up his ass, including his ears, which is why he cannot hear the American people.
He will get the message at the appointed time. A one term President like Jimmy Carter and George Bush the First.
Comments…..this is called stimalis every body needs to e-mail the white house andÂ tell berry he’s a prick ,the barry will hire more fbi to come andÂ deport us too,,,,,Â Â maybeÂ cuba !!!! it looks like they have a change of mind,recent word from them is “communisim isn’t working “Â hell i i think i just might move there!
it will probably be safer there when the shit hits the fan !!!!Â
This is a joke..
did anyone see him type it?
no..so evidence is all cercumstancial (sp)
and its a god given right as far as im concerned to speak your mind and freely..not a country given right or a government given right…
Ive seen , and read way more offensive stuff about our joke of a president..and our joke of an administration..way more offensive than calling a spade a spade..or in this case a prick a prick.
if the suit fits..strap it on!..
or mayby berry needs to strap one on and get over himself.
The liberal left always claims to be sooooo Â tolerant, but in fact, are the world’s least tolerant.
Not defending George W, Â who I personally label as the 2nd worst Pres. ever, Â only behind this empty shirt, Â we now call Pres.,
But, Â I am amazed at how European, Â British press, and our own MSM, who called Bush everything, but a white man, for 8 years, Â are now concerned by some drunk college kid’s remarks, about BHO.
Remarkable! Â oh so tolerant!/// Â boo-hoo-hoo!
The Brits banned Â MICHAEL SAVAGE Â from going to Britain , so turn about is fair play.Â
@Durango – OK, maybe prick is the wrong term.Â But we are in total agreement on the head up the ass thing.Â 🙂
It seems to me that it would have been more productive ( and more adult) to have spoken to the teen and educated himÂ on how to get his point accross without getting banned.
Of course our Pres is soooo thin skinned that this is not a surprise.Â Â Â Â ButÂ the boyÂ is a teenager. How did the FBI and the Brits not recognize this? Banning him for life look laughable!!
