Tommy Robinson 'Disappears': Free Speech in England Is Dead



By: Justin O. Smith
June 8, 2018

The arrest of British free speech activist Tommy Robinson has sent shockwaves across the Anglosphere.  The United Kingdom, once dedicated to the values of freedom, has taken a path toward authoritarian government and away from freedom.  The once great nation, which created the Magna Carta and once commanded an empire, is now the land of tyranny.  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.

The authoritarian socialist government of the United Kingdom has been out to get Robinson for years on anything it can.  It has harassed, intimidated, arrested, and incarcerated Robinson, 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.

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 were covering the case, in a similar manner as Robinson, would he be arrested?

We all know that the answer is "no," and we know why.  The U.K. is so invested in its politically correct multiculturalism diversity project that it has applied a different treatment of Muslims under the law, which accepts the diversity of legal systems and places the country on a path toward ruin.

Limey you never did answe my prior question. You posted he was taping inside a courtroom. My understanding was he was outside a courtroom, not even in the building. Big difference.

Take a look on the other thread.

It is very clear.


What's happening here is that Mr. Robinson (actually Mr. Yaxley-Lennon, he uses some aliases) is being held up as an example of political correctness defeating free speech.

This is being done by groups who very clearly understand what is actually happening but distort it for political reasons.

For the millionth time, Mr. Robinson is in jail because he was given a suspended sentence after breaking the law about interfering with trials. NOT for saying anti-Muslim things. He has said anti-Muslim things for years and has never been jailed for that. He can say those things, it's not illegal.


His suspended sentence, and a further sentence for contempt of court, were imposed after he did the same thing again, that is, break the law about prejudicing trials.


If you look at the other thread, this is explained in detail, including a link to the relevant judgement.

You may not agree with the way the UK law deals with trial management - I don't entirely agree with it myself - but it is the law and he did break it, he admitted his guilt, apologized, and went to prison.


It's not a free speech story, it's not a political correctness story, it's a story about someone letting their political enthusiasm run away with them to the extent that they seriously threatened the trial of a particularly nasty crime.


Whatever clowns like Geert Wilders or Ann Coulter or Brietbarf or American 'Thinker' say, that's it. They're trying to stir things up with their dishonesty or, being charitable, stupidity.

I agree with limeys assessment.

The articles are simply pointing out the lack of free speech relative to the us.

In the states we have no such law. Heck the atty in cases are on tv each night spewing things about their case. Reporters do it non stop

What I do like about English law, is how they deal with lawsuit. File a frivolous case and lose, younoay. We could learn a great deal from them here.

In the states anyone can sue for anything. Contingency attys make a living off this. Most often, even if you are right, it costs more to fight than settle. As I understand it in England, if u lose you pay the other sides fees.
