Trump Apartheid America Exempts Anglo Five-Eyes 6% But Not 94% Of Humanity From Racist Travel Bans


Citizens of the mostly White  Anglo Five-Eyes intelligence-sharing club (US, UK, Canada, Australia and New Zealand) are 6% of Humanity and are exempt from racist Trump’s anti-Muslim travel bans which apply to the remaining 94% of mostly non-White Humanity encompassing 188 of the 193 members of the UN. Apartheid South Africa at least allowed Japanese as “Honorary Whites”. Humanity’s 94% must boycott Apartheid America, the Apartheid Anglosphere 6% as well as US-backed, genocide-based  Apartheid Israel.

Racist Trump’s Apartheid  America now severely restricts immigration from 7 Muslim countries (Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Iraq, Yemen and Iran),  has suspended all refugee admission for 120 days, and bars all Syrian refugees indefinitely [1, 2]. However in response to complaints from the other Anglosphere  countries that together with the US constitute the “Five-Eyes” intelligence-sharing club (together, unofficially, with Apartheid Israel with which the US covertly shares Five-Eyes intelligence), Trump America rapidly moved to exempt the predominantly  White, Anglo Five-Eyes countries from the ban.

Citizens and non-citizen permanent residents of both the US and Canada are exempt from the travel ban, whereas only citizens (and not permanent residents) of the UK, Australia, and New Zealand are exempt from Trump’s racist travel ban.  Thus citizens of  US, UK, Canada, Australia and New Zealand who were born in the 7 targeted Muslim countries (Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Iraq, Yemen and Iran) are exempt from  the travel ban. In addition, non-citizen  permanent residents of the US and Canada who were born in the 7 targeted Muslin countries are also exempt from the travel ban.

Subjects of 188 out of the 193 member nations of the United Nations, these representing about 94% of Humanity,  are subject to Trump’s racist travel ban. Thus any subject of these 188 non-Anglo countries who was born in the 7 targeted Muslim countries (Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Iraq, Yemen and Iran) will be subject to the racist Trump travel ban and prohibited from entry to the US. Indeed non-citizen permanent residents of a further 3 countries – the UK, Australia and New Zealand –  are also included in the racist Trump travel ban.

Thus subjects of 191 out of 193 UN member nations must know that a racist Trump Apartheid America will discriminate  against some to nearly all of their fellow subjects on the basis of ethnicity and religion. Australian, French, German,  Indian, Egyptian, Brazilian, Chinese, or indeed subjects of any of 191 -7 = 184 non-exempt (but not of the 7 specifically targeted Muslim countries) can mostly visit the US,  but if they do so it will be in the knowledge that some of their fellow subjects will be excluded by Apartheid America on the basis of ethnicity and religion.

Decent Australians, Germans,  Indians etc would not want to avoidably visit  an Apartheid America in the knowledge that Apartheid America will exclude some of their fellow Australians, Germans, Indians etc on the basis of ethnicity and religion (noting that  some crucial trips for professional employment or business may be effectively unavoidable) . A loyal husband would not want to visit an Apartheid America that excludes his wife on the basis of ethnicity and religion. All those visiting Apartheid America are accordingly soiled by being complicit in racist American Apartheid.

There is an old principle of “one out, all out” that is at the heart of collective action by decent people and especially by trade unionists, although this principle has become successively blunted in a world now dominated by greedy, anti-social, union-bashing  neoliberalism. Thus about 60 years ago a philosophy professor, Sydney Sparkes Orr, was unfairly dismissed by the University of Tasmania in Hobart, Tasmania. Australian philosophers and thence academics throughout the world responded by a boycott of the chair of philosophy and at one point in the affair nearly all members of the  Law School of the University of Tasmania resigned [3-5].  Indeed in about 1964, a decade before the abolition of the 1901-1974 White Australia Policy [6],  I boarded a tram in Hobart with my Indian girlfriend (now my wife of 50 years) and the driver refused to take us – however the other  passengers indignantly intervened and insisted that he take us.

White, Anglo, genocide-based Five-Eyes countries (6% of Humanity) are variously exempt from Trump’s travel ban.

Racist and bigoted oaf Trump has rapidly divided the world  into 2 camps, (a) the 5 privileged, colonial genocide-based  countries  of the Anglo Five-Eyes,  constituting 6% of Humanity and whose citizens (and US and Canadian permanent residents) are exempt from his anti-Muslim  travel ban versus (b) the mostly non-European, non-exempt 94% of Humanity, comprising  188 member nations of the UN whose citizens and permanent residents are discriminated against  on the basis of ethnicity and religion.

(1). Apartheid America itself exempts its own citizens as well as its own non-citizen permanent residents from the racist travel ban [7].

(2). Canada under US lackey Justin Trudeau has cravenly declined to criticize Trump’s racist travel ban, and has been rewarded by having its  citizens and non-citizen permanent  residents exempted from the  Trump travel  ban [8, 9].

(3). The right-wing populist UK PM  Theresa May has criticized the Trump travel ban as “divisive and wrong” but has invited racist bigot Trump to a state visit  to the UK, the UK being rewarded by having its citizens (but not its non-citizen permanent residents ) exempted from the travel ban [10, 11].

(4). The New Zealand PM Bill English merely stated that he “disagrees” with the Trump travel ban policy and has been rewarded by its citizens (but not its non-citizen permanent residents ) being exempted from the travel ban. However the travel ban exemption does not apply to any dual New Zealand citizen who had visited one of the blacklisted countries in the last 5 years [12, 13].

(5). The spineless, cowardly, gutless, yellow, timorous, US lackey Australian Coalition Government under oh-so-charming, all-smiles but lipstick-on-a-pig Malcolm Turnbull has refused to criticize the Trump travel ban on the basis that key  discussions between friends should  be confidential. After craven Australian begging, Trump determined that Australian citizens would be  exempt from the travel ban, but that non-citizen permanent residents would be  non-exempt [14, 15]. The cowardly, spineless, timorous, gutless, yellow, US lackey Australian Coalition Government has  declined to publicly demand exemption for Australian non-citizen permanent residents who may number as many as 2.5 million, or about 10% of the population.  Thus author Peter Mares: “The census, the register of births and deaths, and the close monitoring of border movement enable us to count Australia’s population with some degree of confidence – 24 million and rising. Yet there is less certainty about how many citizens Australia has. The best data come from the census, which asks whether or not you are an Australian citizen. In 2001, more than 18 million people,  (85 per cent of respondents) marked the box for “yes”; almost two million (nine per cent) answered “no” and one and a quarter million (six per cent) failed to respond to the question. Since short-term visitors to Australia are excluded from these figures, this suggests that there are two million people living in Australia who are not citizens and a significant number who may be confused about their status”[16].

In stark contrast to PM Turnbull, right-wing Australian Labor Leader of the Opposition, Bill Shorten, has stated: “Wherever possible, I want the United States to be able to go about its business without interference from Australia. And I would expect the reverse to be true. However there are some issues where silence will be interpreted as agreement. For that reason, I need to say Mr Trump’s ban on refugees based upon their religion or country is appalling and ought to be ended as soon as possible. I urge Malcolm Turnbull to reconsider what our nation’s position ought to be and rethink what he should be saying on our behalf. It’s time for leadership” [14].

Australia’s craven request for exemption was compounded by its further craven request that Trump honour the Australia deal with Obama (sneakily agreed to after Trump was elected) for the US to take 1,200 mainly Muslim refugees highly abusively and indefinitely confined to concentration camps in the nations of Nauru and Papua New Guinea (PNG) for the falsely asserted “crime” of being refugees. Thus in relation  to what he called the Obama-Turnbull  “dumb deal” of the US taking 1,200  highly abused refugees from Nauru and Manus Island (PNG) ,  Trump was quite right to angrily ask “Why?” in a reportedly stormy and abbreviated telephone conversation with Australian PM Turnbull (“Trumbull” according to the creepy White House spokesman ). Racist White Australia has a disgusting bipartisan policy of discouraging boat-borne refugees by highly-abusively and indefinitely imprisoning  them without charge or trial in remote concentration camps in client countries (Nauru and PNG, despite the PNG judicial system having recently found this to be illegal). Why should Trump have to help out racist White Australia at the cost of alienating his own racist supporters?  Indeed Trump’s obnoxious travel ban policy that has elicited well-justified world-wide condemnation merely bans refugees and other people from certain countries from entering the US, whereas the Australian Lib-Labs (Coalition Government and Right-dominated Labor Opposition ) of racist  White Australia have an appalling, obscene and bipartisan policy of effectively torturing  men, women and children refugees as a potent  threat to discourage more refugees from coming.

Racist Trump’s anti-Muslim travel bans illuminate American Apartheid at home  and abroad with US-backed Apartheid Israel  Palestinian Genocide, huge Muslim Genocide and terminal Climate Genocide.

(1). American Apartheid. America has massive race-based segregation and inequity, especially in relation to  education, housing, wealth, poverty, political representation and differential imprisonment. The present American Apartheid arose from  the remorseless racism of America connected  with slavery and thence the Jim Crow laws and white terrorism that perpetuated racial injustice after the defeat of the South in the American Civil War (e.g. white residents  deploying terrorizing, lynching and the law to racially cleanse all black people from Forsyth County, Georgia in 1912) [17]. The civil rights movement finally led to formal  legislated  equal rights  and desegregation in the 1960s.  However the present huge  racial segregation in Apartheid America derives from  the hugely differential wealth accumulation due to remorseless capitalism and the huge de facto differential impacts of non-racial laws  (e.g. drug-related laws) and their enforcement (as dramatized by the Black Lives Matter movement [18-25].

There is already  huge inequality in America in terms of wealth,  power and opportunity that is most starkly illustrated by the lot of African Americans: (1) African Americans living in poverty is at a record high (27.4% of African Americans were living in poverty in 2011); (2)  African Americans are disproportionately impoverished,  poorly paid and lacking in health insurance (15.9% of African Americans lack health insurance); (3) African American wealth is about 5 times lower  than that of  Whites ($75,040 average home value for Black Americans versus $217,150 for Whites (2013) and $154,285 average household assets for Black Americans versus $783,224 for Whites (2013)); (4) the Black-White economic discrepancy has been locked in for 50 years (2 times higher unemployment rate for African Americans than for Whites since 1963 (in the range  from 1.8 times higher  to 2.7 times higher) and $55,000 – $32,000 = $23,000 White-Black household income gap (2010) versus $49,000 – $28,000 = $21,000 (1972)); (5) millions of African Americans are excluded from voting (e.g. in  the Chicago area nearly 80 percent of adult African American males are excluded from voting under felony laws); (6) African Americans  and Hispanic Americans  have  about half their “fair share” of representatives  in Congress and 5-6 times less Congressional  representation than  Jewish Americans;  (7) African Americans are 8 times more likely to murder and 6 times more likely to be murdered than Whites;  (8) African American males are disproportionately involved in violent crime; (9) African American Congress representatives and leaders  betray African Americans, anti-apartheid hero Nelson Mandela, human rights and Indigenous Palestinians in backing genocidally racist Apartheid Israel and hence its ongoing  Palestinian Genocide [21].

(2). US-backed Apartheid Israel’s ongoing  Palestinian Genocide.  Article 2 of the UN Genocide Convention states that :“In the present Convention, genocide means any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnic, racial or religious group”. US-backed Apartheid Israel is guilty of comprehensively violating the UN Genocide Convention:  (1) since 1936 there have been 2 million Palestinian deaths from Zionist violence (0.1 million) or Zionist-imposed deprivation (1.9 million );  (2) there are  7 million Palestinian refugees and all of the 12 million Palestinians are excluded from all or part of Palestine; (3) of 12 million Palestinians (half of them children), 6 million are forbidden to even step foot in their own country on pain of death, 4.7 million are highly abusively and violently held hostage with zero human rights under Israeli  guns in the Gaza Concentration Camp (2.0 million) or in ever-dwindling West Bank Bantustan ghettoes  (2.7 million),  and 1.7 million live as Third Class citizens as Israeli Palestinians under Nazi-style Apartheid Israeli race laws; (4) 90% of Palestine has now been ethnically cleansed of Indigenous Palestinian  inhabitants (this making a 2-State Solution impossible); (5) the huge disparity in annual GDP per capita between Occupied Palestinians ($2,800) and Israel-proper ($38,000) is reflected in huge differential avoidable mortality of over 4,000 avoidable deaths per year for Occupied Palestinians versus zero (0) for Israelis;   (6) through  imposed deprivation, each year Apartheid Israel passively  murders about 2,700 under-5 year old Palestinian  infants and passively murders 4,200 Occupied Palestinians in general; (7) Apartheid Israel violently kills an average of about 500 Occupied Palestinians each year; and (8) Occupied Palestinians are deprived of essentially all human rights by Apartheid Israel, of which the most fundamental is the right to live unmolested in their own country [26-28].

 (3).  US Alliance Muslim Genocide. 20 substantially or significantly Muslim  countries  have been variously attacked, invaded,  occupied or sanctioned by the US Alliance in the Neocon American  and  Zionist Imperialist  (NAZI)-promoted US War on Terror (War on Muslims) since the 9-11 atrocity that numerous science, architecture, engineering , aviation, military and intelligence experts believe was a US Government 9-11 false flag operation (with some suggesting Israeli involvement). It is estimated that 32 million Muslims have died from violence, 5 million, or deprivation, 27 million, in these 20 US Alliance-violated  countries since the US Government’s 9-11 false flag atrocity in 2001 [29-31].  Of these 20 substantially or significantly Muslim  countries subject to US Alliance invasion or sanction in the ongoing Zionist-backed US War on Muslims, 7 have so far been put on racist Trump’s travel ban list, namely Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen [1].

 (4). Climate Genocide. Trump is an anti-science climate change denialist and the Trump presidency means a huge set-back for urgently-needed global climate change action. Climate criminal Trump is committed  to unlimited, exceptionalist American carbon pollution in the context of a worsening Climate Emergency in which plus a 1.5C temperature rise  is only 4-10 years away, plus 2C is inevitable,  about 7.5 million people presently die each year from climate change (0.5 million) and air pollution from carbon fuel burning (7 million), and a worsening Climate Genocide that may mean 10 billion people will perish from climate change  this century if climate change is not requisitely addressed [32-36]..


The 94% of Humanity being considered as lesser mortals (untermenschen) by Trump’s Apartheid America should take resolute action to protect their citizens and permanent residents who are excluded from the US if they were born in the 7 Muslim countries presently targeted by racist populist Trump (Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Iraq, Yemen and Iran). The dimension of those impacted world-wide is indicated by the horrible reality that today there are about 60 million refugees worldwide with  half of them coming from Muslim countries [29] and racist Trump presently excluding all refugees and threatening to  extend his anti-Muslim travel bans to more countries.

The great ironies  of Trump’s racist travel bans and terror hysteria are that (a) his list of 7 targeted Muslim countries does not include  the countries variously backing ISIS and/or  other jihadi  groups in Syria which have helped kill 0.5 million people and generate 12 million refugees (US, France, UK, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Apartheid Israel), (b) only about 60 Americans have been killed by terrorists in America since the US Government’s 9-11 false flag atrocity in 2001 versus 26 million Americans having died preventably since 9-11, this carnage being inescapably  linked to the fiscal perversion of successive US governments in cahoots with the other Anglo Five-Eyes nations committing $6 trillion to killing millions of Muslims abroad since 9-11 rather than keeping millions of Americans alive at home [37-41], and (c) post-9-11 avoidable deaths from deprivation in the 7 US Alliance-violated Muslim countries targeted with travel bans total 7.4 million – more than the deaths in the WW2 Jewish Holocaust (5-6 million Jews killed by violence or deprivation) or the “forgotten” WW2 Bengali Holocaust in which the racist British with racist White Australian complicity deliberately starved 6-7 million Indians to death for strategic reasons [2].

The mostly non-European 94% of Humanity, the 188 UN member states  whose citizens and non-citizen permanent residents are subject to Trump’s racist travel ban, should apply Boycotts, Divestment and  Sanctions (BDS) against Apartheid America and its complicit Five-Eyes allies (UK, Canada, Australia and New Zealand) just  as the world successfully applied boycotts against  neo-Nazi Apartheid South Africa and is currently applying BDS against US-backed Apartheid Israel and its genocide-complicit supporters [42].
