“I meet people in the street who don’t like me, and they don’t know why they don’t like me” – Tommy Robinson.
I can see why people do not like Tommy Robinson.
Follow the media’s coverage of Tommy Robinson, particularly the press from left-wing platforms, and you’ll understand why. It’s because he is racist, a fascist, a bigot, a neo-Nazi and a white supremacist.
Of course you should understand from the previous articles I have wrote on this blog that the press is genuinely full of s**t, lies, lies, more lies, exploiting the minds of the politically uneducated in order to spread their own opinion.
Tommy Robinson is not a racist, a fascist, a bigot, a neo-Nazi, or a white supremacist, he is simply a political activist against Islamic extremism (like the rest of us), and a harsh critique of Islam and the Qu’ran as a whole.
To put Robinson’s role as an activist into the fewest words possible, he first created and led the EDL from 2009-2013. He created the EDL as a reaction to a Muslim protest against British soldiers marching through his home town of Luton. Robinson said that the Muslims in this protest held signs saying “Death to British Soldiers” and were seen spitting in the soldier’s faces as they marched through Luton in front of their wives and kids. He was angered by the protection these Muslim protesters received from the police. Robinson left the EDL because he didn’t like the association that the EDL had with fascism and racism, and he didn’t like the fact that the EDL was attracting racists and neo-Nazis, something which he had always tried to prevent. After the EDL Robinson worked with Quilliam; a counter-extremist government funded think tank who basically paid Robinson in order to take credit for him leaving the EDL. An inevitable spat arose between Robinson and Quilliam and he is now seen working with Rebel Media and Pegida.
The most evidential argument to disassociate Tommy Robinson from Nazism is his support for the Jewish community within Luton and Britain as a whole, and the fact that Robinson defines himself as a Zionist.
Robinson is a supporter of the sovereign nation-state of Israel, describing it as a “perfect homeland for Jewish people”. Ask yourself this, what is the one religious/ethnic group most associated with being hated by fascists and Nazis? Jewish people of course! So would Tommy Robinson really wear a badge on his suit with the writing “I am a Zionist” if he was a neo-Nazi? That’s why him and Nick Griffin have previously had spats. Griffin of course is a ‘hater’ of Jewish people, an anti-Semitic neo-Nazi leader of the British National Party who calls Robinson a “traitor”.
This brings up the BNP, and yes, Tommy Robinson did join the BNP when he was younger and somewhat naive. But he soon withdrew his BNP membership after realising how racist the politically party actually were. He didn’t initially realise that Nick Griffin used to be a part of the National Front, and he didn’t initially realise that black people weren’t allowed to join the BNP. “I joined, I saw what it was about, it was not for me”, which is why Griffin calls Robinson a traitor.
Unlike a white supremacist, Tommy Robinson has had many positive interactions with people of ethnic and religious minority besides Jewish people; black people, Asian people, Sikhs, Hindus and Muslims. Robinson most noticeably has found it easy to befriend Sikhs and visa-versa, due to his admiration of the fact that Sikhs in general are courageous. He visited a Sikh temple in Manchester after the terrorist attack earlier in the year to stand in unity with Sikhs who held a candlelit vigil for the victims of the Manchester terrorist attack. Robinson said that Sikhs had always been “wrongly identified as problematic”, and he wanted to educate people because “Sikhs have been fighting Islamic extremism ever since their existence”.
The press have always created a stigma against Tommy Robinson portraying him as a racist purely because of his previous leadership of the EDL (most notably by the Guardian); the EDL being a protest movement also portrayed as racist by the press (most notably by the Guardian).
Recently through Rebel Media, Robinson has set up Trollwatch; videos that see him challenge the people who have wrongfully labelled him a racist through the press or social media, to try and get them to explain their bull***t. Not once in any of the Trollwatch videos are any of the people Robinson challenges able to explain why they called him a racist, a fascist or a white supremacist. Below is a link to an example of Tommy Robinson challenging Tim Fenton, asking the journalist to explain why he called Robinson a racist in the Guardian, with Tim Fenton seen to be hiding away like a coward and unable to answer Robinson’s questions:
The most noticeable slandering of Tommy Robinson; portraying him as a white supremacist, was written in an article by Julia Ebner, a Quilliam researcher writing for the Guardian (there was no need to tell you which newspaper, by now you could have easily worked that out yourselves). Ebner didn’t directly call Tommy a white supremacist, her argument was that she “didn’t specifically call Robinson a white supremacist she wrote that Robinson attracted people from all kinds of far-right extremist groups”. Here is an excerpt from the article below where Tommy Robinson’s name was mentioned:
I am now going to write that paragraph out where Robinson’s name is mentioned below word for word, except for the small change of 2 of them 51 words:
“That the far right has moved from the fringe into the mainstream demonstrates the massive support that the white supremacist movements have attracted from digital natives. Their online followership often exceeds that of mainstream political parties: with over 200,000 followers, Diane Abbott’s twitter account has almost the same number of followers as Theresa May’s.”
Now you’re thinking that’s funny or that’s stupid or both because Diane Abbott is obviously not a white supremacist. But hang on a minute, I didn’t call Diane Abbott a white supremacist, just like Julia Ebner didn’t call Tommy Robinson a white supremacist.
With the press you get lies and a stigma when it comes to Tommy Robinson, and it is the same with social media, allowing liberals and even celebrities to jump on the ‘racist Tommy Robinson’ bandwagon (type in Tommy Robinson V Lily Allen on Google. It was quite amusing to see Lily Allen lose a debate on Twitter to Tommy Robinson and thus therefore throw the racist card at him, threaten him with legal action and block him on twitter). One thing I have noticed is that the people in general who criticise Robinson on Twitter, appear to come from a privileged middle-class background which makes them see only a tiny impact from immigration or Islam. They could never understand Robinson’s working-class background in a town as multicultural as Luton. Here’s an example of another Trollwatch video from Rebel Media below:
It should be stated (although it shouldn’t really only the naive would assume…) that Tommy Robinson is not against all Muslims or any average Muslim he may happen to come across, after all, he has always came across many Muslims because he’s lived alongside them all his life. “I’m not against all 1 billion Muslims because I think Muslims themselves are victims of Islam, so I’m not against all Muslims”. He is against Violent Muslims who commit terrorist acts in the name of Islam. Now you’re thinking, “yeah but aren’t we all against Islamic extremism?” Well yes of course! Meaning that Tommy Robinson ain’t that different to the rest of us!
“No one from the EDL would care about a Muslim living their life peacefully, doing Ramadan, if we didn’t see all the hate”.
This is why Tommy went on an 18 month ‘journey’ with Mohammed ‘Mo’ Ansar in an effort for the both of them to understand each others opposing opinions on Islam, filmed as a documentary titled “When Tommy met Mo” for the BBC.
Throughout this documentary both Tommy Robinson and Mo Ansar were seen to have respect for each other and make friends with one another. Mo was seen to invite Tommy into his mosque so that Robinson could have discussions with Muslim scholars (criticised by Nick Griffin BNP because Tommy politely took his shoes off in the mosque), and Tommy invited Mo to speak with fellow EDL members; the first ever Muslim to do as such. It didn’t end two well for the pair though however. The leader of Quilliam Maajid Nawaz interviewed Mo, and Mo was seen to be unable to show support for some of the basic human rights, human rights that are contradictory to certain verses written in the Qu’ran; chopping women’s hands off as punishment for theft. It was after this that Tommy Robinson joined Maajid Nawaz at Quilliam after leaving the EDL, and Mo Ansar was not allowed to attend the press conference where this was announced because Tommy didn’t want him taking credit for him leaving the EDL.
Tommy Robinson doesn’t hate Muslims that should be fairly obvious by now, he hates the religion they follow. The difference is is that when Tommy tried to speak out about the problems of Islamism in his hometown no one would listen. Mainstream politicians have always refused to engage with Robinson, setting the platform for the media to scrutinise his political activism and label him as a fascist. Islamism is a problem in Luton. There are 25 mosques in Luton, how many of them mosques promote the Saudi Arabian doctrine of Wahhabism I do not know, but you can understand why the growth of Islamic fundamentalism in Tommy Robinson’s hometown is dangerous.
Therefore Robinson had, and still has, a right to speak out about the problem of Islamism he has done nothing wrong by doing that. Unfortunately he has always been hammered by the left and the press for doing so. He knows more about Islam than any other average Englishman, and I wouldn’t be surprised if he knew more about Islam than the average British Muslim. He often gets challenged and confronted by Muslims in the street and Robinson will then teach those Muslims aspects of their faith that they did not know themselves. This is because Tommy Robinson has read the Qu’ran, he has read the biography of prophet Muhammad written by Ibn Ishaq and he does know the ins and outs of Islam. This is what Robinson’s political activism is based on, a teaching of the Qu’ran and the prophet Muhammad, or more precisely; a teaching of everything that is wrong with the Qu’ran and everything that is wrong with the prophet Muhammad. But yes if any religious text, including the bible, is interpreted word for word, then there would always be more hate fuelled because all religious texts are backwards and have no place in contemporary society. However, Wahhabism is a literal interpretation of the Qu’ran being taught in British mosques to British children as young as 7. There are no British children in christian churches as young as 7, being taught to commit genocide against neighbouring people (1 Samuel 15:3).
One example of the knowledge Tommy Robinson has regarding Islam, and perhaps why you should trust him more than the media, is seen with Didsbury mosque in Manchester and the related terrorist attacks in May this year.
In the image above you can see a picture of a spokesman representing Didsbury mosque which is the mosque in which the Manchester suicide bomber attended. I remember seeing the press conference on Sky news in which the Didsbury mosque spokesperson above spoke, with him condemning the terrorist attack and him putting division between the mosque and the attacker. He made it clear that the mosque did not promote hatred or Islamic terrorism, and he made it clear that the attacker did not have his terrorist actions influenced on him with his attendance at Didsbury mosque. At the time watching the press conference I thought to myself “oh well that’s good then at least the mosque ain’t to blame for the attack”.
Fast forward two months, whilst doing research on Tommy Robinson in preparation for this article I learnt the truth about Didsbury mosque. I learned about the clerics that have previously spoken and taught there and the potential hatred preached that could have influenced the Manchester suicide bomber into his actions. Here’s a list of the Islamists who have spoken at Didsbury mosque and some of the Muslims who are associated with Didsbury mosque, also known as the Manchester Islamic centre:
1) Abdur Raheem Green- a British Muslim convert who stresses the fact that men are superior to women “simply because it says so in the Qu’ran”. He is chairman of the iERA, an Islamic hate group who have promoted anti-Semitism and called for homosexuals and female adulterers to be stoned to death. He also has links to the Portsmouth Jihadis.
2) Muhammad Ibn Adam- a cleric who justified the Charlie Hebdo attacks, saying “it was the right thing to do”. He says that Muslims should not make friends with non-Muslims, and if a Muslim was to bump into a non-Muslim on the pavement they should make that non-Muslim cross over the road. Adam said that cheating wives should be stoned to death, unless they are pregnant where they should be stoned to death after the baby is born. He also said that women should not leave their homes unnecessarily (“WHERE ARE ALL THE FEMINISTS ON THESE ISSUES!?”- Tommy Robinson).
3) Abu Qatada- probably the most well know Islamist jihad to have lived in Britain. He said that “the wives and children of those who leave Islam should be killed”. A court statement said that Qatada was “providing advice that gave religious legitimacy to those who wish to further the aims of Islamic extremism and to engage in terrorist attacks, including suicide bombings”.
4) Abdullah Hakim Quick- a Canadian Imam who said that “in Islam, gays should be executed. Homosexuality goes with Zionism”.
5) Abu Eesa Niamatullah- This cleric, who happens to live in Manchester, says that anyone who insults the prophet Muhammad should be given the death penalty. Also, one for the feminists to pick up on (but I bet they won’t), Niamatullah also said that women should not be in the workplace whatsoever, they should stay home and play housewife instead.
6) Ramadan Abedi- This man is the father of the Manchester suicide bomber Salman Abedi. Ramadan Abedi fought for the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, a group which had links with Osama Bin Laden and Al Qaeda and were designated by America as a foreign terrorist organisation in 2004.
7) Farzi Haffar- You may or may not recognise this man above from a previous image, but yes it is the spokesperson who was asked to talk on behalf of Didsbury mosque at the press conference after the Manchester terrorist attack. Quite bizarre they asked him to do the speech really since he has been previously caught out on social media being offensive to Jewish people, calling all Israeli Jews Nazis! Suppose he was the best of a bad bunch asked to talk at the press conference out of all the possible representatives of Didsbury Mosque.
Now to the main topic of this article which is not a criticism of Didsbury mosque or Muslim Jihadis or even Islam, but the highlighting of Tommy Robinson consistently being denied the freedom of speech during his time as a political activist. So now I’ll review how the police and the establishment have consistently stitched Robinson up and tried to stop him speaking his opinion, in our British police state.
The police have never wanted Tommy Robinson to speak because their jobs would be easier if possible tensions weren’t created between him, the EDL and Muslim communities. The old bill have consistently used tactics to try and stop Tommy Robinson speaking as a political activist; house raids, petty arrests, and the general attempt at scaring him and his family.
The police have had a pattern of arresting Robinson on a made up charge only so they could bail him on restrictions of where he could and couldn’t go and what he could and couldn’t say. These patterns of arrest were most noticeable at the timings of planned EDL marches, with charges being dropped after the EDL march had taken place. There are numerous examples of these petty arrests I could use. One is when the police pulled Robinson’s car over and arrested him on suspicion of driving a stolen vehicle, even though the vehicle that Tommy was driving had been bought on finance from Vauxhall. Another is when 15 coppers raided Tommy Robinson’s mum’s house with machine guns. This was because a man ‘fitting Tommy’s description’ had been seen causing £30’s worth of damage in a hotel!
The police also once arrested Tommy Robinson and his wife, interviewing his wife for 8 hours whilst she was 6 months pregnant, for tax evasion and money laundering. The bail conditions meant that Tommy’s assets were frozen and his businesses were closed, and him and his wife had to live on no more than £250 a week for four years otherwise they would have to serve 18 month prison sentences. Sounds bizarre doesn’t it? These restraining orders given in Britain; a land of freedom and opportunity? Of course the charges were in the end dropped.
After the arrests for tax evasion and money laundering, the police were seen to arrest Tommy and convict him for swearing at a football match. Of course the press picked up on this and made Robinson out to be a notorious football hooligan involved in a 150 man strong brawl.
Meanwhile, the police were forensically investigating Tommy Robinson and all his family for any possible crime of the previous ten years, petty crimes such as not paying VAT on items bought off Ebay…
By this time Robinson had had 6 different warnings from the government warning him that 6 different people wanted to kill him, and so him and family were offered new identities in a different countries. What for? Because he had originally spoke out criticising Islam!
In 2011 Tommy Robinson was jailed for 10 months for using a false passport (his friends). The reason he used a false passport was because a year earlier, Robinson travelled to America after the world’s 3rd biggest PR company set up a meeting with him and members of congress. Tommy described how that was the difference between Britain and America, Britain is drowned with excess political correctness and therefore the freedom of speech is denied, but in America those in power want to hear what people had to say. No one powerful in Britain cared about what Robinson ever had to say ever since he formed the EDL. However on his arrival that time, Tommy was arrested as soon as he landed at JFK airport because the British police had told America to do that. They didn’t want Tommy Robinson’s message to go mainstream in America. This is why Robinson went to the lengths he did a year later by using his friend’s passport.
Whilst Tommy Robinson was in prison the EDL on the outside had attracted racists and far-right neo-Nazis, something which Robinson had always tried to keep out. This led to his decision to leave the EDL but he didn’t stop campaigning. During his time campaigning, he noticed that the police seemed to offer Muslims and Muslim communities more protection than they did him and his family. The examples I will highlight are incidents in Birmingham, East London and at his parents house.
In Birmingham, Robinson read online that a Muslim was arrested for ‘bricking’ a police officer, but afterwards the he was let go because the local Imam plus 200 other Muslims stormed the police station demanding that the attacker be released. Tommy asked a police officer in Birmingham if this was true, and the PO said it was because they didn’t want any Muslim riots to start in Birmingham which would have spread nationwide. This effectively means that the Imam of that certain Birmingham community had more power than the local police.
In Tower Hamlets, Robinson and his cousin Kevin were arrested for ‘walking’ on Armed Forces Day. The police knew they would be walking through that densely Muslim populated area of London but had asked them not to because they were scared of the possible Muslim reaction. Tommy and his cousin did so anyway because they weren’t breaking any law. They were both attacked by what Tommy believed were undercover policemen, and they were arrested for defending themselves.
An incident occurred in Luton after a number of Muslims got knowledge of who Tommy Robinson’s family were and thus followed his family in a car back to their house, eventually standing in the front garden with weapons threatening the family. Robinson rushed to the house when he heard what was happening and was therefore.. arrested by the police! The Muslims in his family’s front garden with weapons were not even searched, never mind arrested.
Now, back to the point where the police had been forensically investigating Tommy and all his family looking for anything they could get an arrest for. I’m not going to go into all the details you’ll have to listen to Tommy Robinson’s speech on the ‘British Police State’. Basically the old bill couldn’t get anything on Tommy, however they did have possible charges on the rest of his family. So they did a deal with Tommy. His brother in law many years ago had filled in a mortgage form incorrectly, and Robinson had happened to lend that brother in law the money for the mortgage deposit. Therefore the police said to Tommy; “if you do an 18 month sentence for mortgage fraud, we’ll let all your family go free of charge”. Also, Tommy’s assets which had been frozen would again be allowed to be accessed.
Of course the press had a field day when they found out that Tommy Robinson had been sent down for fraud.
In prison for the 2nd time, Tommy was again being shown to be stitched up by the system with the governor of that prison failing to protect his safety. Before all this had happened with the supposed mortgage fraud, 6 Muslims were arrested and sent down for 30 years after being caught on their way to blow up an EDL march with explosives, an EDL march where Tommy was present. Tommy Robinson happened to be in the same prison this time as those 6 Muslims, and the governor had ordered Tommy to be put on to the same wing as them. If it wasn’t for a certain prison guard- ex-royal marine getting Tommy to safety before he was put on that wing, he would have been 100% guaranteed to have been killed by those 6 Muslims. There were still times during that prison sentence where Tommy Robinson was savagely beaten by Muslim inmates, simply because he was Tommy Robinson.
When Tommy got towards the end of his prison sentence, he was approached by two members of the Metropolitan Investigation Bureau; a secretive organisation at Scotland Yard, who wanted Robinson to work for them after he got out by being a grass. DESPITE TOMMY ROBINSON BEING AGAINST THE FAR-RIGHT, the MIB wanted Tommy to unite the far-right; Britain First, the National Front etc., and inform them of any potential far-right terrorist attack. When Tommy did get out, he found that his assets were still frozen and that the MIB were trying to blackmail him.
Shortly after Tommy Robinson got out of the nick, an incident occurred on Twitter when a neo-Nazi threatened to rape his mum (Robinson often got threats and abuse on social media from the far-right as well as from leftys and Muslims). Tommy decided to take this threat into his own hands seen as the old bill had done absolutely nothing about the 100’s of death threats him and his family had received over the years. When he went to meet this neo-Nazi at the designated time and place that had been arranged, the police were waiting for Tommy, and of course, this resulted in Tommy once again being arrested and back in prison.
Surely now you are all seeing a pattern with the police stitching Tommy Robinson up, keeping him locked up for as long as possible for absolutely ‘nothing crimes’, all so he can’t voice his democratic opinion.
Once inside, Tommy’s safety was again failed to be protected by the prison. On this occurrence, Robinson got a tip off from a fellow inmate that a Somalian inmate was planning on throwing boiling water on Tommy. Therefore, Tommy attacked this Somalian inmate first, for his own safety because he knew what was coming.
To cut a long story short, after Robinson got out of jail this time, he was again arrested because of the incident that occurred with the Somalian prisoner before. Tommy was set to get locked up again. The video evidence of Robinson attacking the Somalian inmate had been edited and parts deleted, so that you couldn’t see the inmate before tipping Tommy off letting him know that he was about to be attacked.
Luckily this time, one of Tommy’s Canadian friends got involved in the situation and got Tommy the best legal representation that money could buy. This time, the judge in court dismissed the case, and finally Tommy Robinson was able to break free from the cycle of getting locked up for doing naff all, being released, getting locked up again for doing naff all and again being released.
Now that this cycle was over with however, it didn’t stop the police’s tactics what had plagued Tommy Robinson and his family for years; harassing them, stalking them and criminalising every move they made.
Just last year Tommy was eating a meal with friends and family, including his three children, at a pub in Cambridge. For no reason at all, 12 police officers went to that pub and ordered Tommy and his family to leave, with the argument that the group he was sitting with having a meal were violent troublemakers and fighting would inevitably occur. After arguing with these 12 police officers for half hour, being backed up by the pub staff who were trying to explain to the officers that Robinson and his family had done nothing wrong, they were still made to leave. Once Tommy and his family had left the pub, the police officers unnecessarily followed them down the street in an intimidating manner. They were being absolute bullies. By this time, Tommy’s children were crying because they felt so scared by the following police officers, and even Tommy’s son tried to run away from the officers running into a busy road nearly getting himself killed.
Therefore after that day, every time Tommy Robinson’s children saw a police officer in the street or in the car or anywhere possible, they would get frightened and start crying. It took three police officers, two in uniform and one in a suit, to call at Tommy’s house and give him a football banning order (no reason for that banning order, the old bill just doing their regular job of enforcing unnecessary power and control over Tommy Robinson’s life). Its bad enough that his children were frightened of the police when they saw them in the street, but deliberately going to his home in order to scare his family!? Because that was just another one of the many tactics used by the police in order to try and silence Tommy Robinson. Make his children cry.
All this bullying, all this intimidating, all these lies from the police were for the sole purpose of stopping Tommy Robinson voicing his democratic opinion on Islam. Link to Tommy Robinson’s full ‘Police State’ speech below:
Throughout this article you can see that Tommy Robinson has never been properly listened to because of the power that the press and the police have had in denying his freedom of speech. A democracy is not just about having the right to vote because political activism is also one of the many elements of a healthy democracy. Therefore you could argue that judging by Tommy Robinson consistently being stopped from acting as a political activist, Great Britain is not democratic at all. It is wrong that a free press is able to have the power to belittle an individual’s genuine concerns in a society where working-class opinions aren’t taken seriously anyway, and it is wrong that the authorities are allowed to go to so much effort in bringing down a man and his family all for the name of political correctness.
One thought on “Freedom of Speech being Denied by Political Correctness: Tommy Robinson’s Democratic Struggles in an Undemocratic British Police State”
I notice that Tommy said he feels sorry for Muslims because they are victims of Islam , I could add I feel sorry for Christians because they are victims of the Bible. It all comes down to labels which are exceedingly dangerous . The label Christian could mean a person who goes to church once a week and lives exactly as everyone else does, or it could mean a person who dedicates all their time and effort to helping the destitute. The same argument will apply to Muslims especially those in the rich western nations ; many of these are nominal Muslims indistinguishable from the average Joe Blogs. Likewise the word racist can have many meanings ; it could mean rejection of all others who don’t think like I do, to the point of violent rejection , or it could mean someone who wishes to associate and lead their lives among there own kind in terms of customs and life styles. The old saying ‘ birds of a feather flock together ‘ is amazingly accurate when it comes to the complexity of human society. I might quite happily live next door to a black man but be very resentful if my daughter married one.
In general the law, even in the freer western nations, hate what they see as trouble makers because it makes their job much more difficult ; policemen don’t want to separate fighting gangs they would much rather collect their wages for sitting in police cars. In more Authoritarian countries they just ban demonstrations or arrest who ever opposes authority ; a glance at modern Turkey makes that clear, and if you want real restrictions try Saudi Arabia it’s not so easy to get a beer there.
