    Countries have a right to not allow people inside their borders.

    Countries do that have right, but not if they want to consider themselves a democracy at the same time.

    •  So Great Britain is not a democracy? (0+ / 0-)
      •  You can't compare the two (0+ / 0-)

        Wilder is against a religion. Chomsky is against a political agenda.

         And yes, banning someone for their ideas is an anti-democratic thing to do.

          spreading  hate and incitement. Chomsky is about dissent from policies that create war, and supporting policies that will bring peace.

          you are right, you cannot compare the two.
