College student banned from US for life for name calling email to White House

America faces a new threat possibly so severe that it has prompted President Obama and the FBI to take affirmative preventative action.

No, it does not come in the form of radical religious extremist terrorists or international criminal enterprises, but rather it consists of drunken seventeen year old boys sending naughty emails to the White House.

As reported by Sky News, British teenager Luke Angel has been banned from the US for life after he sent an email insulting the President by calling him a nasty name.

The young man had reportedly just finished watching a programme on TV about the 9/11 attacks and, after a couple of beers, felt the need to vent spleen by telling Obama that he thought the commander in chief was a ďp***kĒ.

Take 30 seconds to work out what that insult actually is.

Thatís correct itís a euphemism for male genitalia Ė and a mild one at that.

Nevertheless, the email was intercepted by the FBI no less, who proceeded to contact the London Metropolitan Police in the UK, who then sent officers to visit young Mr Angelís home in Bedford.

The police took a photograph of Angel, no doubt to be stored on a vital database of dangerous terrorists, but did not take any criminal action.

When asked about the ban, Luke said: ďI donít really care. My parents arenít very happy about it.Ē

ďI donít remember exactly what I wrote as I was drunk. But I think I called Barack Obama a p***k. It was silly ó the sort of thing you do when youíre a teenager and have had a few.Ē college student Angel added.

Here we have another example of a situation being hyped beyond all rational sense in an effort to convey the idea that if you dislike or speak out against authority you will be treated as a criminal.

Obama reportedly receives scores of death threats everyday, why in Godís name would the FBI be taking the time to follow up a mildly abusive email from a drunken teenager in England?

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.
----------

Seriously, why do you have to be banned from the US for life if you call Barrack Obama a prick?

If these reports are true I may actually end up agreeing a little with Guarddog.

It's in Sky News and The Sun. All the right wing news outlets are rolling with the story in the US.

A Bedfordshire Police spokesman said: "The individual sent an email to the White House full of abusive and threatening language.
Why should we let in a foreign national who has threatened the leader of our country? This is exactly what should be done in this case.

I would like to point out that even though I agree they are silly to "ban him" (doesn't everyone remember how up in arms we were over Savage being banned from the UK) it's an insignificant story, I'm sure happens all the time, and doesn't deserve a thread.

Assuming everything in the story is true, by the teen's own admission he doesn't remember what he wrote. It could have very well gone above and beyond calling the president a prick.

If I sent an email to 10 Downing Street threatening to punch David Cameron, I would expect to never be allowed to set foot in Britain again.

But you're right, this is a pointless thread (practically the only kind we get anymore.)

Perhaps this thread will be a little more fun for you.

Muslims and Jews. Calling the President of the United States a pork is just reprehensible.
