Yesterday I posted on my favorite Facebook Group a Channel 4 News video about Tommy Robinson being released from his unjust imprisonment in a UK prison. The report though trying to be neutral journalism appeared slightly on the UK media slant which is to vilify Tommy Robinson.
And so … here is an Ezra Levant interview of Robinson as he emerges from the UK prison under the auspices of Rebel Media. (Hat Tip: Jayda Fransen)
JRH 9/14/19 (I have just discovered that Youtube is showing the posting date)
As the title informs, Tommy Robinson wrote a lengthy letter from solitary confinement. A confinement that has to be endured an unjust British Court’s decision to coverup the crimes of Muslim pedophiles and sex-slavers in the United Kingdom. Read Tim Brown’s post on the Robinson letter which includes the entire contents.
One would be wise to listen to how the UK government has targeted one of their own while allowing the antichrist religion of Islam to flourish and terrorize the people they are supposed to serve.
“I’ve been held in total isolation since the moment I entered Belmarsh. I’ve not seen another inmate; I’m held in prison within a prison,” Robinson said. “I believe the unit that I’m held on was built for IAN HUNTLEY! Other prisoners that have been held here are Abu Hamza and Michael Adebalago! [sic]”
Peter M. D’Abrosca reminds us, “Huntley murdered two 10-old-girls in 2002, and Hamza was a terrorist Islamic preacher who was convicted in Britain 2012 for inciting violence and racial hatred. In 2015, he was convicted in the United States on 11 terrorism charges and sentenced to life in prison. Adebalajo was a Muslim convert who killed a British Army soldier in 2013 and was sentenced to life in prison.”
D’Abrosca goes on to write, “Robinson seemed to be surprised that he was being held in the same cell as such criminals, given that his crime essentially boiled down to filming on the street. The official conviction, for which Robinson was originally jailed and released in 2018, was for contempt of court. Robinson was allowed out of jail last August while his conviction was appealed. He lost his appeal and was sent back to jail last month. He is being held at HMP Belmarsh, a prison in Thamesmead, London.”
“The staff at Belmarsh have been great, the governor has made sure all of my rights are recognised, to be honest he’s making the best of a difficult situation having me as a prisoner,” wrote Robinson. “I am 100% safe; this is a totally different sentence to my last in HMP Onley.”
Robinson also went on to elaborate on the injustice he faced concerning his conviction.
“Let me quote you WORD FOR WORD what the Judge at the head of the Queen’s bench division said during her summing up,” he wrote. “Let me just point out first that she was promoted to this position just two weeks before my trial! ‘the contempt’s we have found proved were NOT ones of deliberate defiance, there was NO intention to interfere with the administration of justice and in the event neither the Akhtar trial or the trial that followed were prejudiced.’”
“What she is saying right there is that she convicted a journalist of making a mistake that had ZERO impact on the trial,” Robinson added. “Even my enemies can see that serving five months on solitary confinement for what she describes as not deliberate is simply not fair.”
“I contest that I even broke any law, it’s simple for those watching the video that the punishment does not fit the crime sorry, my so-called ‘mistake’,” he continued. “I’ve not actually been convicted of a crime, it’s a civil offence! The judges who sentenced me went against the law, they judged AGAINST what the law says on their own website!”
Now, Robinson is appealing his case to the British Supreme Court, even as tens of thousands protest in support of him under the hashtag #FreeTommy.
“It would be impossible to fight the establishment without your help and love. My wife’s view is that it’ll be another trial more stress and kissing the kid’s goodbye again, but for me, another trial is another chance to expose their lies,” he wrote. “I have to fight it! I just hope you’ll see it is important as I do as it’s a crazy amount of legal costs. Without your help and support, I’m sure I’d already be a broken man, but instead, I’m pumped and ready for round three. The establishment relies on the fact that they don’t think we’ll be able to afford to keep in the fight, so I will ask you to share this everywhere. I’m asking once again, help me fight the establishment! It’s death, prison or glory.”
I was outraged when I read Tommy Robinson was railroaded by the British legal system for merely reporting on Muslim pedophile-rape jihadists who were actually convicted. In the case of Robinson, he was actually convicted for making convicted Muslims anxious.
It was this moment I linked to a Tommy Robinson support page convinced even though he had already been given a legal raw deal, Robinson would still need support. For me it is irrelevant if for future legal fees or a way to help the Robinson family pay their bills while the breadwinner is unjustly incarcerated – THAT SUPPORT LINK on the Tommy Robinson website: https://www.tr.news/freedom-for-tommy
Other than feeling the outrage for the UK treatment of Free Speech Rights, I received a Middle East Forum press release update with some details on the Robinson conviction which you can read below.
Philadelphia – July 12, 2019 – The Middle East Forum again helped citizen-journalist Tommy Robinson defend himself from charges arising from his reporting in March 2018 outside a courthouse where a Muslim rape gang was on trial.
Mr. Robinson has been sentenced to nine months in jail, the culmination of the UK Establishment’s dogged pursuit of an individual with the audacity to report on the UK’s epidemic of Muslim rape grooming gangs. Although found guilty of a civil infraction he has been placed in HMP Belmarsh, a notoriously violent prison sometimes known as the “jihadi training camp.”
In this latest round, Mr. Robinson is sentenced to jail for a technical violation of the UK’s Contempt of Court Act of 1981 that allows judges to postpone the reporting of trials. However, “Worse than being selectively enforced, the Contempt Act appears to be exclusively enforced against Tommy Robinson when it comes to reporting outside courthouses,” notes Marc Fink, the Forum’s Legal Project director. Indeed, according a UK media guide (emphasis added):
Filming parties to proceedings as they arrive and leave the court house is also technically forbidden but in practice this rule is not enforced e.g. pictures of defendants and witnesses arriving and leaving the Royal Courts of Justice or the ‘Old Bailey’ are commonly shown. In May 2018, Mr. Robinson was arrested, tried, convicted, sentenced to 13 months prison, and jailed – all in the course of five hours. On August 1, Mr. Robinson won his appeal, with the Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales denouncing “a fundamentally flawed process.” But the UK’s attorney general was undeterred, re-trying the case last week, this time putting on a better show trial.
The Forum most recently assisted Mr. Robinson by funding his legal team in an attempt to have the charges dismissed. In 2018, it funded, organized and staffed three “Free Tommy” London rallies and spurring Sam Brownback, the U.S. ambassador for International Religious Freedom, to raise the issue with UK officials, as well as other steps.
Mr. Robinson has acknowledged this assistance: “The political establishment here in the UK is doing everything possible to silence me solely for my views on political Islam. The Middle East Forum has been instrumental in assisting with my reoccurring legal challenges.”
“The Middle East Forum continues to stand behind Mr. Robinson, in word and deed,” notes Daniel Pipes, president of the Middle East Forum. “Right now, his life is in danger. The British authorities repeatedly have placed Mr. Robinson in the prisons most dangerous to his well-being.”

On July 10 I posted about Tommy Robinson being a “Rebel Against UK Multiculturalism” pleading for his support even after his unjust conviction criminalizing telling the truth about Muslim pedophilia rapists in the United Kingdom.
Today’s post somewhat combines the themes of the last two posts about how elitist Multiculturalists are creating New Speak terminology to force a brainwashed population to tolerate what common sense would tell you is intolerable.
The Humanitarian Hoax is a deliberate and deceitful tactic of presenting a destructive policy as altruistic. The humanitarian huckster presents himself as a compassionate advocate when in fact he is the disguised enemy.
The conviction of journalist Tommy Robinson is a humanitarian hoax that has destroyed free speech in England and threatens free speech worldwide. What does this have to do with America?
Tommy Robinson is a British journalist who has been reporting on Muslim rape gangs throughout England that have been raping little English school girls with impunity for decades. The savagery of their acts, and that British authorities are covering up this massive atrocity against the innocent, is extremely destabilizing to British society. Civilized people reject the protection of perpetrators at the expense of victims.
For civilized people, Tommy Robinson is the heroic whistleblower who exposed the horror of Muslim rape gangs and their unspeakable acts of barbarity in England. British society experiences enormous confusion and cognitive dissonance because British authorities protect Muslim rape gangs and embolden them by prohibiting the reporting of their heinous acts of savagery. Why is this happening?
Let’s sort this out by examining the reasons in numerical order.
Tolerism is defined by Howard Rotberg in his 2014 book, Tolerism: The Ideology Revealed, [Blog Editor: The GoodReads.com added by me. Book Review] as “excessive leniency to opinions of certain groups, and excessive intolerance to the opinions of other groups.” Rotberg explains that the breakdown of Western society is a direct result of Leftist tolerists who insist that tolerance is more valuable than justice.
The once free Britain has reduced itself to a dhimmi nation by tolerating its sharia-compliant Muslim population at the expense of its native Christian population. Make no mistake, there is an Islamic religious war being waged worldwide that seeks to eliminate competing religions and establish a global Islamic caliphate ruled by religious sharia law. Britain’s leaders are tolerists insisting that tolerating Muslim rape gangs in the name of cultural diversity is more important than justice for its victims. Tolerism is Britain’s fatally flawed political ideology providing victory to the Muslim Brotherhood, the multi-national organization that has declared Islamic religious war on the West.
Populism rejects the twisted logic of political tolerism and embraces the common sense warning of Austrian/British 20th-century philosopher Sir Karl Popper:
“If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them. . . . We should, therefore, claim, in the name of tolerance, the right not to tolerate the intolerant.”
The British court’s decision values tolerance over justice. Why would they do that?
In America, the Leftist/Islamist alliance is trying to destabilize and overthrow duly elected populist President Donald Trump. POTUS is the consummate whistleblower in America, exposing the staggering malfeasance of the Washington swamp and the Leftists, Islamists, and globalists who live there.
Leftists in America ignore, “Islamic tenets of misogyny, homophobia, antisemitism, pedophilia, gang-raping non-Muslim little girls, female genital mutilation, and wife-beating as long as these sharia-compliant Muslims are anti-American anti-Trumpers. Any anti-American anti-Trump Islamist is welcomed into the Leftist tribe because they are all warriors in the Culture War against America. America-first President Donald Trump is the existential enemy of the Culture War and the target of the Leftist/Islamist alliance.”
In England, the Labor party is equivalent to the Leftist Democrat party in America, both prefer globalism to national sovereignty. In England, the Labor/Islamist alliance is trying to destabilize England and create chaos to subvert the will of the people and stop the implementation of BREXIT.
So, what do President Trump and Tommy Robinson have in common? Tommy Robinson is the whistleblower in England and the existential enemy of the leftist Labor party that prefers tolerism to justice. Why?
Tommy Robinson and President Trump are claiming, in the name of tolerance, the right not to tolerate the intolerant.
Tolerism vs Justice
What is the goal of tolerism in England and America? Why do Leftists in America and Labor in England ignore the obvious violations of the laws and norms in their Judeo-Christian countries and surrender their culture to the savagery and barbarism of Islamic sharia norms?
Tolerism is a paradox because tolerists selectively decide what to tolerate. Whistleblowing and truth-telling about Muslim rape gangs is not tolerated – it is criminalized. So, a two-tier system of justice is established that prohibits anti-Muslim speech and protects anti-Christian and antisemitic speech. Why?
If you want to know the motive, look at the result. The effects of this egregious double standard is that anti-Christian burning of churches, and antisemitism including defacing synagogues is rampant and unpunished in England. If the British courts continue to protect sharia-compliant Muslim perpetrators and their criminal acts at the expense of native Britains, social chaos will result. Remember, seismic social change requires social chaos.
Tommy Robinson and President Trump, each in his own way, is exposing the truth of tolerism and its global anti-American, anti-British attacks on our sovereignty and shared Judeo-Christian norms. Their separate efforts continue to unravel the ongoing deceitful multi-national efforts fomenting the social chaos necessary to impose a globalized New World Order.
Sir Karl Popper warned us about tolerism. George Orwell warned us that, “During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.”
Freedom of Speech
Every tyrannical regime the world has ever known begins its reign of terror by eliminating freedom of speech. Lenin did it, Trotsky did it, Hitler did it, now Leftists in England and in America are doing it by disingenuously relabeling free speech as hate speech. There is no freedom without freedom of speech which is why speech is universally the first freedom eliminated by despots.
The same tolerist Culture War being waged against America by the Leftist/Islamist alliance is attacking England. Leftism and Islamism have a common cause to destroy the status quo even though their ultimate objectives will make them inevitable enemies. The Islamists are fighting for a global religious Islamic caliphate. The Leftists/Labor are fighting to destroy the national sovereignty and cultural identities of their respective countries in preparation for socialism in America, and a unified European State in England.
The irony, of course, is that members of the Leftist/Labor/Islamist alliance are all useful idiots for the globalist elite who finance and foment their lawlessness. The alliance members are just too arrogant to realize they are participating in their own destruction.
Seismic social change requires social chaos. The Leftist/Labor/Islamic alliances in the United States and England are providing the necessary social chaos for the globalists who fully intend to impose a New World Order – an internationalized world ruled by themselves under the corrupt auspices of the United Nations. There is no humanitarianism in the conviction of whistleblower Tommy Robinson. His conviction is part of the coordinated attack on free speech and a free and sovereign England imposed by the globalist elite using tolerism and the unholy Labor/Islamist alliance.
July 8, 2019, will be recorded as the day free speech died in Britain, the day Tommy Robinson was convicted for reporting the crime of Muslim rape gangs in England. The only law that Tommy Robinson broke was the Islamic supremacist sharia law forbidding criticism of Islam. Islamic sharia law does not consider the raping of little English school girls to be a crime – the prohibition is against criticizing and reporting it. England has reduced itself to a grotesque dhimmi nation willing to sacrifice its own little girls in a globalist power grab that requires social chaos.
The humanitarian hoax of tolerism that convicted Tommy Robinson must not be allowed to silence him permanently. Hopefully, populist President Donald Trump will grant Tommy Robinson humanitarian asylum in the United States where he can still expose the realities of an Islamicized England. Britain is, after all, the proverbial canary in the expansionist Islamist coal mine.
Introducing the Tolerance of the Intolerable:
What Happens When Mixing Multiculturalism, Islam & Multiculturalism?
Tommy Robinson is a crusader for British Culture against the Islamization of the UK. Since the UK is full in dedicated to multiculturalism, that places Robinson on the UK’s political persecution list.
Being a political target in the UK makes Robinson a criminal in the eyes of British law and a target for vilification by the British press which are more dedicated even more to Leftist multicultural cultural programming than the U.S. Mainstream Media.
With that in mind, Tommy Robinson has actually been convicted for making Muslim pedophile grooming sex trafficking anxious. Here is a 3:38 minute video from Ezra Levant on this British injustice against Robinson (H/T The Tundra Tabloids):
As an American protected by the First Amendment guaranteeing Free Speech and a Free Press, I find this British verdict against Tommy Robinson outrageous. In the UK all media is now denied to Robinson meaning public pleas for help if not censored now, it soon will be. The UK is slipping more and more into Big Brother totalitarianism. This is the kind of repression that caused thirteen British Colonies to declare independence in 1776.
Below is an email appeal for Tommy Robinson from Canadian Elsa Schieder which ultimately asks for support for at least Robinson’s legal defense bills with a link for this purpose. In case you are already inspired, here is that link: https://www.tr.news/freedom-for-tommy(The link is sponsored by TR [Tommy Robinson] News. You will first notice to donate in British Pounds Sterling, but there is a dropdown arrow-menu to switch that to U.S. Dollars, Euros, Canadian Dollars or Australian Dollars.)
“I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.'”
We Too Have a Dream
That’s why I’m writing. Because so many of us join with Martin Luther King, Jr, in the dream of equal rights, of living in a land of freedom and justice. We say, as he did: It’s time for one law for all, and for the law applied equally to all.
I’m sure he never imagined the possibility of what is going on today.
Over and Over, Unequal Treatment
So many of us face both unequal treatment under the law, and laws claiming to be for justice, but mandating unequal treatment.
A travesty of justice – that is what Tommy Robinson has lived for years.
And that is what can be expected in much of the West if the charges relate to something that may put Islam in a bad light, or if someone does something that is or can be seen as anti-Islamic. A man put a bacon sandwich at a mosque. His sentence: one year. The outcome: his death half-way through his prison term.
Here’s the most recent case of the utter injustice Tommy has experienced. On May 25, 2018, after checking carefully that he was not breaking any law, Tommy was accused of breaking a law he did not break, denied fair trial, and within 5 hours sentenced to 13 months for saying to a live video audience something that was on the BBC website, and jailed.
He chose to spend most of his imprisonment – almost 3 months, until the appeal – in solitary confinement, to increase his chance of staying alive. That was only the beginning.
In the appeal, the judge – a top UK judge – threw out the case, but left it open that the case could be reopened.
It was. On July 4 and 5th, 2019, there was another trial, this time at the Old Bailey, where most cases are for crimes like murder, rather than for reading from the BBC website. This time, the judge – another top judge – chose to convict. The conviction seems in large part due to Tommy’s having asked convicted rapists how they felt about their verdict. This showed, it was argued, insensitivity to their feelings.
Just yesterday, Tommy appealed to Trump for political asylum. He is to be sentenced within 2 days. The sentence could be for as long as 2 years. He is sure he will be murdered in prison.
The legal system, through the actions of the courts, has been – blatantly, visibly, outrageously – unjust, unfair, endangering Tommy. The greatest danger to Tommy has been through his being placed in prisons with a high proportion of Islamic violent offenders, including murderers. Why has he been sent to such prisons? No answer is required.
One reason the government can do as it does is that the mainstream media publishes untruths – like that Tommy pleaded guilty; like that Tommy had endangered the trial of rape gang members (though the case had ended, and the rapists had been convicted); like that Tommy is a racist Islamophobic hoodlum; and on.
A larger reason is that the legal system, the government, the mainstream media, the establishment religions, are all – as shown by massive evidence – massively corrupted, massively complicit. There is rot wherever one turns.
Over 250,000 people were listening
on August 20, 1963, when Martin Luther King, Jr spoke.
How Many People Are Listening Now?
In 1963, the media reported Martin Luther King’s speech. It was easy to hear his message.
Now, the mainstream media tells blatant untruths.
“The truth shall set you free.”
We need everyone to hear the truth.
Over and Over, Laws that Discriminate
There is another massive injustice happening. Not only are laws unfairly applied, with any infringement used as an excuse for a massive punishment, but unjust laws, laws that discriminate, are increasing in number.
In the United States, there used to be Jim Crow laws, laws that discriminated against blacks – like, blacks go to the back of the bus. Now, there are new Jim Crow laws – like, Christian whites, don’t even try to get on the bus.
John Naughton (name changed to protect his identity) was falsely accused of sexual harassment. He went to prison. He now has a criminal record though he was innocent and though he had proof of his innocence, proof that the allegation was malicious in intent. Most likely the accuser was racially targeting him.
Why did he end up in jail? John is working class. He works full time, but his pay is not enough to cover legal costs. The choice he was given: plead guilty, or pay for legal costs, which will mean losing your home.
What could he do?
John is one of many.
What About Assistance with Legal Representation?
John lives in the UK, where legal assistance used to be available for people in his situation.
It isn’t any more.
The law is now overtly a Jim Crow law. It overtly discriminates.
Needed: one law for all.
Instead, now low income is irrelevant in terms of qualifying for government assistance for legal representation.
All that counts is membership in some designated groups.
John Naughton did not qualify. No one classified as white qualifies, unless that white person belongs to a non-Christian religion or is a refugee.
There is one law for non-whites, especially Islamic non-whites, another for whites, especially Christian whites.
Blatant discrimination. Blatant injustice.
From a Travesty of Justice to Joining Together
Everywhere one turns, blatant miscarriages of justice. Unequal treatment. Laws that discriminate.
All people against injustice must join together and act: keep informing ourselves, inform others, and join political parties that expose the rot and expose the truth – about Islam, about the consequences of mass incoming, about the taboo against non-politically correct thinking in the education system.
The War on Truth
Here are quotes attributed to Hitler’s minister of propaganda, Joseph Goebbels:
– If you repeat a lie often enough, people will believe it, and you will even come to believe it yourself.
– Propaganda works best when those who are being manipulated are confident they are acting on their own free will.
– This is the secret of propaganda: Those who are to be persuaded by it should be completely immersed in the ideas of the propaganda, without ever noticing that they are being immersed in it.
– Propaganda must facilitate the displacement of aggression by specifying the targets for hatred.
– It is the absolute right of the State to supervise the formation of public opinion.
Staying informed and reaching out to others – also vital.
More that is needed.
Plato: If you do not take an interest in the affairs of your government, then you are doomed to live under the rule of fools.
The situation is actually far more dangerous than living under the rule of fools. Currently, throughout much of the West, from all the evidence, we are living under the rule of, at best, dangerous cowards and reality-deniers – at worst, evil-doers out to destroy the West.
We need to be involved, as far as we can.
Where to turn?
There are parties typically denigrated as “populist” – as if the population were rotten.
(If Batten is replaced as leader – as is almost certain, as he has just been barred from running by the party he co-founded – this party may well return to silence about anything negative relating to Islam).
How can you tell truth from untruths told over and over?
From July 8, the interview where Tommy appeals for political asylum: https://youtu.be/Ux93kfCiJk4 [blog Editor: The link is to a 39 minute of Alex Jones interview with Tommy Robinson. It is worth to watch because Robinson’s passion. Interspersed throughout the interview are pay-the-bills advertisements. Of they are as annoying to you as I found them simply fast-forward.]
If you are a Conservative-oriented person active in posting and reading on various Social Media platforms, you are probably quite aware the current Social Media giants do more than lean Left. Those giants also have an agenda to promote all things and ideology Left. You probably have also realized part and parcel of that agenda is to PREVENT YOU — a Conservative — from being successful on their Social Media platforms. INDEED, this means censorship and/or banning.
On a personal level I have experienced Social Media Jail on Facebook and Google+. (Neither you nor I will need to worry about Google+ censorship/jail by early April because Google is shutting down the non-commercial usage of G+.)
I operate three blogs. More lately my flagship blog SlantRight 2.0 seems to be on the Facebook radar. Quite suspiciously Facebook has flagged SlantRight 2.0 shared posts as being against the platform’s community standards. This is interesting since I don’t engage in vulgarity, profanity and incitement to violence.
My subject matter promotes Conservative thought, is pro-Christian, Pro-Israel, Pro-Christian Zionist and to a Multiculturalist’s chagrin – I do not shy away from exposing the dark side of Islam both from that theopolitical faith’s own revered writings and current events. In full disclosure I am supportive of Biblical Morality which among other things places me in the present day politically incorrect side of criticizing all things same-sex. This kind of criticism has earned a special epithet from the Left known as homophobia. I am labelled a homophobe even though I condemn violence in any form against those practicing the various forms of homosexually. God Almighty will judge LGBTQ practitioner choices and not any human being and certainly not I. For that matter, there are probably many actions a Conservative should ask forgiveness to escape an end of the age Final Judgment including myself. (One of the awesome aspects of God’s Grace in Christ Jesus is Mercy for all humanity have fallen short due to sin. Mini path to personal Redemption:
God’s Righteousness Through Faith
21 But now the righteousness of God apart from the law is revealed, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets, 22 even the righteousness of God, through faith in Jesus Christ, to all [a]and on all who believe. For there is no difference; 23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24 being justified [b]freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, 25 whom God set forth as a [c]propitiation by His blood, through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance God had passed over the sins that were previously committed, 26 to demonstrate at the present time His righteousness, that He might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus. [Romans 3: 21-26 NKJV])
Thank God there are Social Media platforms beginning to emerge as a result of the big-dog platforms skewing Left. And yet I’m not exactly an Internet guru and I have found my learning curve for using emerging platforms not always equal to usability. Hence as yet, I have a sense dissatisfaction of the more emerging Conservative-friendly platforms which may be more my problem with adapting to different formats. As the big-dog Social Media becomes more and more hostile toward Conservatives, I suspect I’ll have to make a greater effort to adapt.
I won’t mention the new Social Media I had an utter failure in using, but there are three that adaptability seems easier. GAB is a bit of an alternative to Twitter. You can post with 300 characters at GAB. But GAB has had server issues recently when a mass murderer was discovered to have used GAB, the server company used by GAB gave them the boot. GAB is up and running again with a new server.
MeWe seems to be taking off currently. MeWe is kind of a combo G+ and Facebook. So far though I have not figured out how to link to individual posts in a MeWe Group. Again, the problem might be my skill set more than a MeWe issue. Here is my MeWe Profile Page.
A Social Media platform I find extremely promising is USA Life. USA Life is modeled so much like Facebook, it may be the future Conservative alternative. Go to my USA Life Profile Page and become my friend.
I’ve noticed when I complain of Facebook censorship on the newer platforms, I’m beginning to get responses asking me why don’t I just abandon Facebook? One reason is I’m an old dog that doesn’t like to learn new tricks. Until censorship became a problem at Facebook, it seemed the most effective way to share my blog posts. I am thinking USA Life might actually become competitive to Facebook’s future. Until then I’ll keep protesting Facebook censorship as long as the Facebook despots allow me to share. I suspect a day will come when Facebook despots will ban me for good.
Along the lines of censorship and banning, I was conversing with a Counterjihad author (due to the potential of censorship I hesitate to share the name). We spoke of our mutual censorship experiences on Facebook. He provided some insight on Conservative usage on Facebook.
He senses that above Facebook algorithms digitally hunting down Conservatives, he believes there are people among your friend lists who lean Left or are downright Liberal trolls who make it their objective to report your Conservative content as offensive. Whether or not it is actually offensive matters little. There is no recourse to rebut a false report with Facebook.
The suggestion is to go through your friend list and delete suspicion looking friends. Check out their views from their posts. If you determine a friend leans Left, that person can be suspected of reporting your Conservative content. Delete them.
Below are some posts exposing Social Media Platforms with a Left-Wing anti-Conservative agenda and their methods.
Earlier today, Tommy Robinson was banned from Facebook and Instagram. YouTube won’t be far behind. YouTube is removing more and more content based on false flags. Videos that contain absolutely no hate speech are being removed as hate speech, and creators that haven’t violated any rules or guidelines are receiving strikes and having their privileges (e.g. livestreaming) revoked. YouTube’s Community Guidelines strike system is pure garbage. YouTube is also punishing content creators for comments left on their videos. Perhaps the YouTube Creator Academy can address these problems.
A Facebook insider has confirmed the social-media giant discriminates against conservatives through software manipulation, using “special features” to “deboost” their traffic, especially near elections.
Project Veritas has obtained and published documents and presentation materials from a former Facebook insider. This information describes how Facebook engineers plan and go about policing political speech. Screenshots from a Facebook workstation show the specific technical actions taken against political figures, as well as “[e]xisting strategies” taken to combat political speech.
Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe said that to expose dishonesty and censorship in big tech companies, he will be relying upon more insiders, informants and leakers in the future.
“Our future depends on those who are willing to give up everything for what they believe.”
“When approached for comment, author and filmmaker Mike Cernovich said the troubling issue is that Facebook could just ‘make stuff up’ about people through these systems. ‘Facebook, or an individual at Facebook, has the unilateral power to create false allegations against someone he or she doesn’t like. The person accused not only can’t do anything about the allegation, they don’t even have an idea the allegation was made,’ said Cernovich,” Project Veritas said.
Facebook bans Tommy Robinson, falsely claiming he calls for violence against Muslims
A Muslim activist in the UK is claiming credit for this:
I can reveal I recently had a meeting with Facebook to discuss #TommyRobinson pages and their impact in brainwashing his supporters to become terrorist and use violence against Muslims. A very good result and I am proud of my role.
However, Tommy Robinson says: “…the reasons they’ve given are just complete lies. They’re saying I incited violence and that I openly called for violence against Muslims, that’s just a lie. If that was the case then they could show evidence of messages where I’d said that but I never have.”
Whatever you may think of Tommy Robinson, fascists such as Mohammed Shafiq are not going to stop with him. It will soon be impossible to voice any opposition to jihad mass murder or Sharia oppression of women, gays, and others on any social media platform. Then the jihad will be able to advance unopposed and unimpeded, which is the ultimate goal of all these efforts to silence critics of jihad terror.
“Tommy Robinson Banned from Facebook, Instagram,” by Oliver JJ Lane, Breitbart, February 26, 2019:
Facebook has banned British citizen journalist and street organiser Tommy Robinson from its platforms, including Instagram, in a move that comes days after he released a new documentary exposing what he claimed to be dishonest practise at establishment media giant BBC.
The social media giant claimed in a statement published Tuesday that Tommy Robinson’s own Facebook page, which had around one million ‘likes’ before deletion, “has repeatedly broken [Facebook community] standards, posting material that uses dehumanizing language and calls for violence targeted at Muslims. He has also behaved in ways that violate our policies around organized hate.”
Facebook claimed the move “is not a decision we take lightly.”
Responding to the ban, English Defence League founder turned citizen journalist Tommy Robinson told Breitbart London: “…the reasons they’ve given are just complete lies. They’re saying I incited violence and that I openly called for violence against Muslims, that’s just a lie. If that was the case then they could show evidence of messages where I’d said that but I never have.
“This is continued censorship which we all knew was coming but its been done instantly because of my documentary which exposed the establishment working with Hope not Hate, working with the BBC in order to destroy my name to the nation. When I exposed what they were doing they’ve put down the pressure to completely delete me from the internet. This has to show people the levels they’re gonna go to silence any opposition to mass migration and the Islamisation of this nation.”
Robinson’s removal from the platform is only the latest in a series of bans targeting the campaigner in recent years. He was de-platformed by Twitter in May 2018, banned from receiving payments by Paypal in November of that year, and had Youtube videos blocked from earning revenue in January 2019.
Mr Robinson told Breitbart London that he would be working on his own mobile app for live streaming after his removal from several social media sites.
It is not clear what actions were taken by Mr Robinson’s social media page in the recent past to cause Facebook’s decision to remove him now, but the move does come just days after he released an exposé documentary claiming to reveal underhanded dealings at British state broadcaster the BBC. In the hour-long film, which Robinson uploaded to his Facebook page, it is alleged the BBC collaborated with far-left activist organisation HOPE Not Hate to create what was apparently called a “Tommy Takedown”.
Robinson’s film debuted at a protest he held in Manchester, England, outside the offices of the BBC where the Panorama documentary series is produced. Thousands are reported to have attended the heavily-policed event.
In the film, top BBC documentary maker John Sweeney can be seen being confronted by Robinson with undercover footage of him making apparently racist and classist statements. It is believed at least some of the claims and counterclaims between Mr Robinson, the BBC, and HOPE Not Hate may yet be contested in court.
Responding to the ban, Tommy Robinson ally and UKIP leader Gerard Batten said the rise of censorship showed the nation was headed towards a “dark place.” He said: “Without any explanation whatsoever, the personal Facebook accounts of key UKIP members and Tommy Robinson have been removed….
“The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by human hands. And he is not served by human hands, as if he needed anything. Rather, he himself gives everyone life and breath and everything else.” ~Acts 17:24-25

Most Americans are clueless about the enormous assault of European so-called democracies against any Free Speech exposing the god-awful crimes of Muslim immigrants, refugees and next-gen born Muslims perpetuated AGAINST the inherent non-Muslim citizens.
Why are Americans clueless? Because the American Leftist Mainstream Media (MSM) is quite supportive of these Free Speech restrictions.
Why are European democracies restricting Free Speech? Because the idiocy of cultural Multicultural Diversity has capture the political elites running those nations. Muslim crimes therefore must be hidden from their European citizens to maintain the perversity that Islamic culture is compatible with the values of Western culture.
In Europe you can actually go to jail for exposing Muslim crimes to the public! The latest victim that I am aware of is Tommy Robinson. I wonder how many others have been jail or prosecuted for exposing the nature of Islamic culture?
Americans need to pay attention to what is occurring in Europe. American Leftists (i.e. Democrats) desire to follow the European Multiculturalist paradigm.
Geert Wilders spoke at a massive rally for Tommy Robinson on Saturday. 20,000 people came out to call for Tommy’s release, and Wilders took the opportunity to put the political elites of Britain and continental Europe on notice.
“Our governments,” Wilders declared, “sold us out with mass immigration. With Islamization. With open borders. We are almost foreigners in our own lands. And if we complain about it, they call us racists and Islamophobes. But I say, no more! And what do you say? No more! And that’s right: enough is enough. We will not be gagged anymore. No more tyranny.”
It was extraordinary that the British authorities allowed Wilders into the country at all. Several years ago he was banned from entering the country, but although the ban was reversed on appeal, the British government recently banned Martin Sellner, Brittany Pettibone, Lauren Southern and Lutz Bachmann from entering, all for the crime of opposing jihad terror and Sharia oppression, and thereby made it clear that it is more authoritarian and unwilling to uphold the freedom of speech than ever – at least when it comes to criticism of Islam, Muslim rape gangs, and mass Muslim migration.
Even worse, the bannings of Sellner, Pettibone, Southern, and Bachmann were just part of a long pattern. Pamela Geller and I were banned from entering Britain in 2013, apparently for life, also for the crime of telling the truth about Islam and jihad. Meanwhile, Britain has a steadily lengthening record of admitting jihad preachers without a moment of hesitation. Syed Muzaffar Shah Qadri’s preaching of hatred and jihad violence was so hardline that he was banned from preaching in Pakistan, but the UK Home Office welcomed him into Britain.
The UK Home Office also admitted Shaykh Hamza Sodagar into the country, despite the fact that he has said: “If there’s homosexual men, the punishment is one of five things. One – the easiest one maybe – chop their head off, that’s the easiest. Second – burn them to death. Third – throw ’em off a cliff. Fourth – tear down a wall on them so they die under that. Fifth – a combination of the above.”
But now matters are coming to a head. Apparently British authorities decided that it would be too politically costly for them to bar Wilders again. And so he entered, and spoke, and gave them a strong dose of the reality that they are determined to ignore and deny.
Tommy Robinson is in prison today because he violated a court order demanding that he not film videos outside the trials of Muslim rape gangs. Clearly the government’s intent was to make sure that as few people as possible discovered the truth about its massive, years-long cover-up of those rape gangs, and refusal to prosecute the perpetrators. Theresa May and company obvious hope that other Britons who are furious about the sacrifice of thousands of British girls to the idols of “diversity” and “multiculturalism” will see what happened to Tommy, and be frightened into silence.
The British government, in imprisoning Tommy Robinson, has shown itself willing to incarcerate people for having opinions that it considers unacceptable. That heralds the death of Britain as a free society and the beginning of an authoritarian police state there, unless this slide to totalitarianism is stopped now. British public figures, whatever criticism they have leveled against Tommy Robinson in the past, should be calling for him to be freed today, or else they will be exposing themselves as supporting the degeneration of Britain into a police state.
Wilders addressed this endeavor head-on, declaring: “We will not be silenced. We will not be intimidated. And we tell the governments, we are not afraid of you. We will never surrender. We will stand strong and do our duty. We will defend our civilization. And we will protect our people.”
Wilders added: “And I tell you, to the governments. You can throw us in jail, but you will never defeat us. Because, my friends, for every Tommy whom you imprison, thousands will rise up. So take notice, Theresa May. Take notice, Dutch Prime Minister Rutte. Take notice, Mrs. Merkel or President Macron. Take notice: the future is ours and not yours. We will defeat you politically, because we, my friends, we are the people.”
If Wilders’ words don’t prove true, it will be because the death of free societies in Britain and Western Europe is truly at hand.
FRONTPAGE MAG IS A PROUD PROJECT OF THE DAVID HOROWITZ FREEDOM CENTER
The DHFC is dedicated to the defense of free societies whose moral, cultural and economic foundations are under attack by enemies both secular and religious, at home and abroad.
The David Horowitz Freedom Center combats the efforts of the radical left and its Islamist allies to destroy American values and disarm this country as it attempts to defend itself in a time of terror. The leftist offensive is most obvious on our nation’s campuses, where the Freedom Center protects students from indoctrination and intimidation and works to give conservative students a place in the marketplace of ideas from which they are otherwise excluded. Combining forceful analysis and bold activism, the Freedom Center provides strong insight into today’s most pressing issue on its family of websites and in the activist campaigns it wages on campus, in the news media, and in national politics throughout the year.
FrontPage Magazine, the Center’s online journal of news and political commentary has 1.5 million visitors and over 870,000 unique visitors a month (65 million hits) and is linked to over 2000 other websites. The magazine’s coverage of and commentary about events has been greatly augmented over the last two years by the presence of four Shillman Fellows in Journalism underwritten by board member Dr. Robert Shillman. FrontPage has recently added a blog called “The Point,” run by Shillman Fellow Daniel Greenfield, which has tripled web traffic.
Justin Smith shows his disdain for the United Kingdom jailing Tommy Robinson with nearly no due process, in secret and jacked into prison for 13 months. A prison with a bunch of Muslims where death threats await Robinson.
The arrest of Tommy Robinson, a British free-speech activist, on May 25th, for simply asking questions of alleged criminal pedophile Muslim defendants, as a citizen journalist, has sent shock waves across the Anglosphere and left millions of people in disbelief, forced to now acknowledge that the United Kingdom, once dedicated to the values of freedom, has taken a hard-core, divergent path towards authoritarian government and away from freedom. The once great nation, that created the Magna Carta and once commanded an empire, is now the land of tyranny, and unless the British people love their freedom enough and fight this injustice in fierce fashion, it will remain a land silenced by intimidation and fear.
On Friday May 25th, 2018, Tommy Robinson was arrested for “breaching the peace” while filming outside Leeds Crown Court during the ongoing trial of a Muslim grooming gang. Robinson’s preexisting suspended sentence for “contempt of court” was immediately reinstated and he was swiftly imprisoned. Robinson being jailed for any length of time in a prison system filed with people who want him dead could tragically be a death sentence. The court also instituted a “reporting restriction” on the Robinson situation, leading to a media blackout among United Kingdom based publications and citizens. In the United Kingdom, 2018 is 1984.
The authoritarian socialist government of the United Kingdom has been out to get Robinson for years on anything they can. It has harassed, intimidated, arrested and incarcerated Robinson on past occasions for similar actions, as it did last May, since it is now apparently a “crime” to report on the decades long systematic rape of hundreds of non-Muslim children by gangs of Muslim men, who are now apparently a protected class of people. Lizzie Dearden of the Independent reported that Robinson was arrested for “breaching the peace”, no doubt an absurd pretense by the British authorities, in light of the documented film footage of his actions.
Tommy Robinson, a former member of the English Defense League whose real name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, is being unfairly persecuted by the U.K. government. Robinson’s “crime” was that he yelled questions outside Leeds Crown Court and named the alleged defendants, like any other reporter. So what? The state broadcaster, the BBC, and the mainstream media had already named them. Why was he arrested, and why were they not arrested?
If gangs of white men had spent decades torturing and raping little Muslim girls and a justly outraged Muslim reporter was covering the case, in a similar manner as Robinson, would he be arrested?
We all know the answer is “no”, and we know why. The U.K is so invested in their politically correct, multiculturalism, diversity project, as it seemingly calls good “evil” and evil “good”, that it has applied a different treatment of Muslims under the law, which accepts the diversity of legal systems and places their country on a path toward ruin.
Diversity of treatment under the law fragments societies. Diversity in this sense cannot ever work, unless moral values remain constant. If freedom of speech is a value and a virtue, can any free nation really tolerate the intolerant and those who violently oppose freedom of speech, if it expects to remain free?
Free societies can only function with a general respect for the rule of law. If the application of the law appears selective, unjust or political, the people begin to see the law as no longer representing them, their principles and their moral values, and they will defy the bad immoral laws and any injustice of its creation.
Americans should be highly concerned over this case, because the same type of “hate-speech laws” used against British citizens are currently being advocated in the U.S. Senate, by Marco Rubio (R), Kamala Harris (D), Susan Collins (R) and Dianne Feinstein (D) and a long list of others. Hillary Clinton pushed the same laws in 2012, and in 2015 and 2017, House Resolution 569 and 257 and Senate Resolution 118, three similar unconstitutional laws aimed at our First Amendment rights, were advanced in our Congress, after being drafted by EmgageUSA [Blog Editor: EmgageUSA About Page (formerly EmergeUSA)]and the Muslim Public Affairs Council, two Islamic organizations and defenders of designated terrorist organizations and their supporters, according to the Investigative Project on Terrorism. The passage of any such anti-Freedom of Speech bill would place our country on Britain’s same ruinous path.
In a frighteningly quick manner and only a matter of hours, not only was Robinson illegitimately arrested, he was taken before a judge without access to his own lawyer, no trial or due process of law, and he was sentenced to thirteen months in prison. Afterwards, he was promptly transported to Hull Prison, where an imminent threat of death awaits him among a prison population that holds a large number of Muslims.
Remember, Kevin Crehan, a British citizen, was imprisoned for a year for leaving a bacon sandwich near a mosque. He was found murdered in his cell on December 27th 2016, which Joseph Curtis reported in The Daily Mail soon after. The same threat hangs over Robinson.
As we all know, there has been no press conference or detailed explanation of Robinson’s arrest from the British government, which further illuminates the illegitimacy of this action. Instead of transparency, the government has banned any reports on the trial of the Muslim pedophiles and the arrest and incarceration of Tommy Robinson. Not only are reporters’ questions going unanswered, they are forbidden from even reporting the bare facts of Robinson’s incarceration.
On May 26th, Gerald Batten, a UKIP member of the European Parliament tweeted: “I am trying to recall of a case where someone was convicted of a ‘crime’ which cannot be reported on. Where he can be cast into prison without it being possible to report his name, offense, or place of imprisonment for fear of contempt of court. Can anyone remember such a case?”
However, this only infuriated journalists across the Atlantic, and Judi McLeod, editor of the Canada Free Press, opened her article by asking, “Where is Tommy Robinson? A question whose answer should be demanded rather than merely asked … Modern day Merry England has become far more nightmare than fairytale, as it steadily works its way toward ugly police state status.”
What’s next England — people getting ‘disappeared’ into gulags or being shot in the back of the head, in the style of Stalin or Castro?
Free speech is dead in the United Kingdom. The imprisonment of Tommy Robinson and the arbitrary silencing of the press proves this to be so.
In a land that once could proudly state “the sun never sets on the British Empire”, their torch of freedom has been extinguished. It’s a land divided by diversity that has now descended into the darkness of tyranny.
If the globalists in both of American parties and the U.S. State Department have their way, America will be next.
“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?… The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst; the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If…if…We didn’t love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation…. We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.”
Tommy Robinson represents a large segment of Britain’s people, with over 500,000 signatures on a petition already to Free Tommy, and they sent a clear message on Saturday May 26th 2018, that they had enough, as hundreds — thousands (?) — of British people gathered outside 10 Downing Street and stopped traffic, chanted and pressed the gates of Number 10 and threw bottles at machine-gun toting policemen.
Their palpable anger hung thick in the air, because they want Robinson, at the very least, to be released from prison and allowed to get back to his life and enjoy the same protection and human rights and dignity as Anjem Choudary, the terrorist supporter, was afforded by the authorities. And short of this, the summer in Britain will turn out to be a season of riots and civil strife, awaiting the spark that moves the good and decent Brits — of a long ancestry dating to 1066 and William the Conqueror — to love their freedom enough to rise and fight furiously to make their land free once more.

Tommy Robinson’s arrest in front Leeds Court for ONLY shining a light on 29 Muslims involved in rape, trafficking, pedophilia and grooming to perpetuate those crimes of horror; is beginning to be criticized.
Defenders of Free Speech are pointing fingers at the United Kingdom claiming the Brits have descended into totalitarianism. Bruce Bawer writing for the Gatestone Institute also criticizes the British Leftist Mainstream Media (MSM) for tarnishing Tommy Robinson by painting a picture of a Right-Wing extremist, you know, the kind of violent people that the USA would characterize as the violence-minded KKK or Arian Brotherhood, or other Neo-Nazi White Supremacist bigots.
Indeed Robinson’s is indicative of a history of thuggery noted among British soccer (known as football in UK) fans. The Multiculturalist Leftist website Resisting Hateelaborates Robinson’s past thuggery and crimes even giving examples of purported racist tweets. Here’s a photo from Resisting Hate displaying Robinson’s run-in with British law:
Yet some time during this behavior, Robinson boned up on Islam and found out the Quran, Hadith and Sira legitimizes much of the crimes committed by the 29 Muslims most heinous of crimes of rape, trafficking, pedophilia, etc. Jamie Glazov did a two-part interview with Tommy Robinson discussing his 2015 book, Enemy of the State. You’ll have to go to the Glazov site to watch the interview, but below is an excerpt of the description:
Welcome to our special 2-Part Glazov Gang video series with Tommy Robinson, the founder and ex-leader of the EDL, the coordinator of Pegida UK and the author of his new memoir, Enemy of the State.
In Part I, Tommy discusses his new memoir and his continuing fight against the Islamization of his country. He talked about his opposition to all forms of racism and the slanders against him, the British authorities’ persecution of him for being a British patriot, the vicious Islamic assault on his nation and the mass denial about it, and much more.
It sounds to me that Robinson has hung up his thug guns to be an activist for British patriotism, defender of Western Culture and an expose the truth about Islam kind-of-guy.
And yet, the British MSM often paints a picture of Robinson of using his past thuggery to wail on counter-culture Muslims.
In a 2017 interview between Piers Anthony and Robinson, Anthony went off on a Leftist diatribe to Robinson’s face demeaning anything that exposes Islam. Here’s an excerpt according Hugh Fitzgerald:
Piers Morgan had Tommy Robinson on his show recently, but only very briefly, and he hardly let Robinson have a word edgewise, interrupting him at every turn. …
Morgan registered his objection, saying, “Here’s my point. Right, I’ve read a lot of stuff that you’ve said and done. I know your history, I know all of it. Good, bad and ugly. Some of it is ugly, some of it, I agree with.”
… And what you were doing, was fomenting hatred and almost suggesting that somehow this attack, this revenge attack as you put it, was somehow deserving because of the historical behavior of certain people at a completely different mosque — that was my problem.”
“OK, Piers,” Robinson responded, “the newspaper you work for said exactly the same within an hour — Abu Hamza’s mosque. Were they fomenting hate, the newspaper you work for? Were they? Were they inciting hate?”
“I don’t run the Daily Mail,” Morgan protested.
“Now, if I hold up this book [i.e. the Quran] and say, ‘There will never be peace on this Earth so long as we have this book, it’s a violent and cursed book,’ Can I say that? Sir William Gladstone said that,” Robinson continued, referring to the 19th century prime minister of Great Britain’s description of the Quran.
“Would you say that of the Bible? Show some respect,” Morgan retorted.
“Show some respect? Have you read this book?” Robinson shot back. “Have you read this book? There are a hundred verses in this book that incite violence and murder against us.”
Why didn’t Piers Morgan answer Robinson’s question? Has he read the Qur’an? If he had, why wouldn’t he say so? The problem for Piers Morgan is that either he has not read the Qur’an (which is entirely possible, for study is not his strong suit, and he seems to be noticeably unwilling to engage on its contents, never having mentioned a single one of its verses) and therefore has no business taking issue with what Tommy Robinson, channeling Gladstone, maintains, or he has read it in which case he knows what it contains and and [sic] wants to keep that information from the public. After all, if he had said, “Yes of course I’ve read the Qur’an,” Robinson’s next question would have been: “Okay, can you recall even one verse out of the more than one hundred that incite violence and murder against the Infidels?”
… READ the whole post to understand how Multiculturalists would rather defend a culture of hate rather Western Culture (Piers Morgan, Bigoted Lunatic; By HUGH FITZGERALD; Jihad Watch; 6/24/17 11:26 AM)
The most balanced reporting that did not accuse Robinson of being a Right-Wing extremist was Fox News:
The arrest and jailing of British right-wing activist Tommy Robinson for covering a child grooming trial has led to an outpouring of anger from conservative political figures in the U.S. and Europe — with Donald Trump Jr. citing it as a reason “for the original Brexit.”
Robinson, whose real name is Stephen Lennon, was arrested Friday outside a court in Leeds for filming men accused of being part of a gang that groomed children. Britain has been rocked by an epidemic of child sex scandals perpetuated by gangs of predominantly Muslim men.
Fox News reported Friday that he had been jailed for 13 months for contempt of court, but British media initially were unable to report on the sentence due to a reporting ban slapped on the case by the judge. That ban was lifted Tuesday after appeals by media outlets.
Robinson, the former leader of the English Defense League known for his acerbic criticism of Islam, reportedly pleaded guilty to breaching the terms of a previously suspended sentence from 2017 when he reported on a similar case.
Robinson is a polarizing figure in the U.K. Supporters say he speaks out against political correctness and the growing influence of Islamic extremism, while opponents claim he is a racist who stokes fear and division, and note that he has previous convictions.
The details of the case Robinson was reporting on last week are still blocked by a reporting ban. Consequently many British media outlets reported only that he was arrested outside a courthouse, but gave no specifics about the case itself. However, Robinson’s supporters say he repeated allegations that have been published in local media outlets.
Robinson’s jailing has tapped into a long-standing narrative among conservatives in the U.K. and Europe that authorities are quick to clamp down on anyone bringing attention to crimes associated with Islam, while being lax about the perpetrators of those crimes.
Consequently, as news trickled out over the weekend, conservative figures reacted with fury. On Saturday, crowds descended outside Downing Street to demonstrate for Robinson’s release.
Others expressed concern for Robinson’s welfare, suggesting that due to his profile as an Islam critic, he may be a target in prison. U.K. Independence Party leader Gerard Batten said that one of the party’s members of the House of Lords wrote to Home Secretary Sajid Javid threatening a private prosecution as “an accessory, or for misconduct in public office.”
Quickly, the case picked up international attention. Trump Jr. responded to a tweet about the case and the gag order, saying it was “Reason #1776 for the original #Brexit.”

Bruce Bawer writing for the Gatestone Institute lays out criticism of Robinson’s arrest, the British Multiculturalist MSM unrighteously castigating Robinson’s current character and the UK’s apparent descent into anti-Free Speech totalitarianism.
Did the Daily Mail’s lawyers have to check with the British government, which had placed a gag order on reporting about the arrest, to make sure that it was permissible to report on the protest, if not directly on the arrest itself?
It seems fair to say that the incident has shocked, outraged, and scared people around the world who, until now, had thought of the United Kingdom as a free country.
“Britain used to be a bastion of free speech. Today its leaders are behaving like North Korea and Saudi Arabia.” – Geert Wilders, MP; The Netherlands
Meanwhile, Robinson remains in jail for daring to exercise his free speech, and what the mainstream media have won back is the right to resume repeating their lockstep lies about who he is and what he stands for.
Hundreds of supporters of Tommy Robinson filled the streets of London on Saturday in protest against his arrest in Leeds on Friday, but it was not until shortly after midnight on Monday that the Daily Mail posted a report about the protest on its website. The story, which was unsigned, was updated on early Monday afternoon. How to explain the delay? Did the Daily Mail’s lawyers have to check with the British government, which had placed a gag order on reporting about the arrest, to make sure that it was permissible to report on the protest, if not directly on the arrest itself?
The Mail made sure to describe the hundreds of protesters as “far-right.” How did the Mail ascertain their politics? Does it not occur to the Mail that even if Robinson were far-right, which he is not, a British subject would not have to be far right to want to take in a protest against his shockingly rapid-fire arrest, trial, conviction, and imprisonment for the sole offense of reporting from outside a courthouse?
The Evening Standard also reported on the protest – and also labeled the participants “far-right.” “The incident,” wrote the Standard ‘s Tom Powell, “has triggered a furious reaction from his fans.” In fact, it seems fair to say that the incident has shocked, outraged, and scared people around the world who, until now, had thought of the United Kingdom as a free country.
In America, for example, Robert Spencer warned that “the darkness of Sharia-compliant totalitarianism descends upon the UK.” Thomas Lifson asked:
“Is Britain lost to the ranks of free nations? The land that bequeathed the world the Magna Carta and the ‘mother of parliaments’ is indulging in totalitarianism with its handling of Tommy Robinson, a famous political activist agitating about the threat of radical Islam, and attempting to report on the trial of a Muslim ‘grooming gang’ that allegedly preyed on young English girls, forcing them into prostitution.”
In the Netherlands, Geert Wilders declared solidarity with Robinson: “Britain used to be a bastion of free speech. Today its leaders are behaving like North Korea and Saudi Arabia.”
At least the Mail and Standard ran stories about the protests. Other major British dailies did not. The Metro website, for its part, posted a story that made the Mail look objective: “The controversial nationalist and far-right commentator, real name Stephen Lennon, was posing as a ‘reporter’ when police officers approached him,” wrote Olivia Waring in a piece headlined “Why Was Tommy Robinson Arrested?” In fact, Robinson was not “posing” as anything – he is a citizen journalist who at the time of his arrest was being watched live on Facebook by supporters around the world. Waring went on say that Robinson’s supporters “abide by slogans like ‘White Lives Matter.'” She also mentioned that Robin was a founder of the English Defence League, but omitted to acknowledge that he left the organization after it adopted a racist line of which he could not approve. In any event, Waring’s piece did not even pretend to answer the question posed in the title, leaving the reader to wonder exactly who is, in fact, posing as a reporter.
Whereas Robinson was arrested for “breaching the peace” – “apparently British police code for ‘offending Islam,'” noted Spencer wryly – and was immediately thereafter found guilty of “contempt of court” and hustled off to the hoosegow, the savages whose case he was covering have apparently been on trial for several weeks now. They face multiple charges, including rape, racially aggravated assault, and inciting a child into prostitution. One of the defendants is accused of fifty-one separate counts, including twenty-one counts of rape. During the weeks of their trial they have, of course, had legal representation and have apparently been allowed to go home at night. Meanwhile Robinson’s attorneys were apparently unable to contact him in the first hours and days after his arrest.
Finally, on Tuesday, in response to complaints by the British media, the gag order on reporting news about the Robinson case was lifted. Presumably this counts as a modest recovery for freedom of the press in Britain. Meanwhile, Robinson remains in jail for daring to exercise his free speech, and what the mainstream media have won back is the right to resume repeating their lockstep lies about who he is and what he stand[s] for.

Multiculturalists Malign Tommy Robinson to Discredit Him
On 5/27/18 I posted about Tommy Robinson being arrested outside of Leeds Court in the UK merely for showing a light on 29 Muslims involved in rape, trafficking, pedophilia and grooming for this godless enterprise.
I was then quite pleased in one Counterjihad heroes – Geert Wilders – stood outside the UK Embassy located in the Netherlands and gave a rousing moment of Robinson.
