Thank goodness, i thought i might have to take you in for a while. It's a good thing your BNP and EDL membership is acceptable.

Well, people like to get on with their roommates and some people really don't like Trump supporters. This really isn't legitimate discrimination as racist/sexist roommates as Trump supporters can change their political stances. This shouldn't matter to anyone but the person who posts the roommate ad. In all honesty, I don't think I could be roommates with a Trump supporter.

Mine will read "No Liberals allowed if you voted stay then you should leave (My room)"

But this is probably hate speech

Nope that's fine

"But this is probably hate speech" no, you just want your own cosy safe space

I don't see the problem with this. I also do not want someone who supports Trump as a roommate because they always seem like complete ***** with 0 banter.

Having "no Trump supporters" on a roommate ad may as well say "I'm unemployed, and I will eat all your food."

Why would that be hate speech?

To be fair, they've doing Trump fans a favour, who would want to share a house/room with an absolute ****?

What's this thing where people who are "anti trump" are unemployed?

Perfectly acceptable to state "no Muslims" when advertising for a roommate then, as Muslims can change their religion.

Yes?

Religious discrimination is unfortunately illegal

Surely it's a win win either way? Trump supporters are now clearly forewarned when there's a room available with a person they might clash with, and can avoid the bs altogether. Meanwhile the Trump haters can avoid people they tend to dislike.

It's making a more peaceful society boys

How utterly childish. People can just change their political stance? That's rubbish, something like this should absolutely be considered a light form of discrimination.

As long as someone isn't in your face about their political views, why do you honestly care if they're a room mate or not? Everyone saying they do not want a Trump supporter as a room mate are really proving everyone right when they say liberals are childish.
