An interview with a BBC radio host ended abruptly when a Trump supporter attempted to justify the candidates proposed ban on Muslim immigrants in the U.S. by citing a sexual abuse scandal in England that began almost 20 years ago.
Calling in to BBC 5, Ryan Girdusky, a writer for Red Alert Politics, claimed that American’s overwhelmingly want to clamp down on Muslim immigration because of terrorist attacks.
Gidursky attempted to reinforce his point by noting a prostitution ring dating back to 1997 run by five British-Pakistani Muslim men in Rotherham.
“A lot of the time, terrorist attacks are created by Muslims,” Gidursky told host Dotun Adebayo. “Whether you like it or not, England has its own problem with Muslims up in northern England, raping little white girls. They don’t want to –”
“Oh come on Ryan, come on,” Adebayo interrupted.
“That’s true, did that not happen?” Girdusky persisted. “Did they not target little white girls?”
“Ryan, Ryan, Ryan, that is beneath you,” the BBC host replied.
“Did that not happen?” Girdusky pressed.
“Actually no, that’s not true as you know,”Adebayo stated.
“So Pakistanis did not rape white girls in Rotherham, England?” Girdusky continued.
“I’m not even going to engage in this conversation Ryan. It’s really beneath me and beneath you as well,” Adebayo stated before shutting down the interview and telling his audience, “I do apologize for anything [Girdusky] says that might be offensive.”

Rod Rosenstein secretly crippled the Mueller investigation: report
According to a report from the New York Times, former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein had a hand in limiting the scope of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into ties between Donald Trump's 2016 campaign and the Russians by secretly curtailing an FBI counterintelligence probe.
The report from Michael Schmidt of the Times begins by stating, "The Justice Department secretly took steps in 2017 to narrow the investigation into Russian election interference and any links to the Trump campaign, according to former law enforcement officials," before adding, "But law enforcement officials never fully investigated Mr. Trump’s own relationship with Russia, even though some career F.B.I. counterintelligence investigators thought his ties posed such a national security threat that they took the extraordinary step of opening an inquiry into them."
‘Meanest and most disrespectful’ senator: Trump lashes out at Kamala Harris in latest presser
At Tuesday's White House press conference, President Donald Trump spent a considerable portion of the time attacking Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), who was just announced to be former Vice President Joe Biden's running mate.
Harris, complained Trump, was the "meanest and most disrespectful person in the U.S. Senate." He particularly dwelled on her sharp interrogation of Brett Kavanaugh during his Supreme Court hearings.
Trump also added that she "lied" about a number of issues, claimed repeatedly she wants to raise taxes, said she is for "open borders and sanctuary cities ... which is also protecting a large number of criminals," and that she would destroy the Second Amendment.
California bill to establish nation’s second public bank applauded as ‘historic challenge to Wall Street domination’
"If California is serious about addressing racial and income inequities, we must create a banking system that centers people not profits."
In a move advocacy groups celebrated as a "historic challenge to Wall Street domination of municipal finances," a pair of California state lawmakers on Thursday unveiled legislation that would establish the nation's second publicly-owned bank and empower the institution to lend to businesses and local governments fighting to stay afloat amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
