As we reported here last night, right-wing activist Lauren Southern was detained, and later deported from the United Kingdom. At the time, few details were available, but now we have a clearer picture on what exactly happened.
After Southern’s friend, Brittany Pettibone and her boyfriend Martin Sellner were denied entry into the country, and detained at the airport for three days, Southern attempted to enter Britain via bus.
As Southern was attempting to cross the border into Britain, she was detained by British authorities, and was investigated under Schedule 7, also known as Britain’s Terrorism Act 2000.
Investigated me under schedule 7 (terrorism act) because of alleged racism. At least they let me identify as Pakistani on my report lol. Still being held by police. pic.twitter.com/LhZFK2d8Jh

After a brief detention, Southern was given a deportation notice, and as for her reason, the notice stated that she was “involved in the distribution of racist material in Luton.”
Dear @AmberRuddHR – you have detained @Lauren_Southern in Calais and prevented her entering the U.K. She is a Christian Conservative. You have sided with Islamists of Luton. You need to make better decisions ma’am. pic.twitter.com/rpAgSEwLI3

Following this claim, conservative activist Caolan Robertson Tweeted out a picture of himself, along with Southern and Brittany Pettibone, distributing the so-called “racist material[s].”
Robertson dubbed the situation as a “social experiment,” and put the U.K. government on blast for “[bringing] back blasphemy laws.”
According to The Express, Britain is home to 35,000 Islamic fanatics. The fact that they spend more time targeting a blonde Canadian girl tells you everything you need to know about how seriously Britain is taking the threat of radical Islam.
