A day for freedom in Britain 10

He was greeted by chants of “Oh, Tommy, Tommy, Tommy, Tommy, Tommy, Tommy Robin-son!”

By a huge crowd.

Because the British people need someone to save their country.

Breitbart reports on the “Day For Freedom” rally held in London on 6 May, 2018:

Activist Tommy Robinson has told the #DayForFreedom free speech rally in London that he’s taking Twitter to court, to prove the social media giant is treating “facts” as “hate” at the behest of a censorious British government.

Robinson was introduced by Breitbart London editor-in-chief Raheem Kassam, who gave a short speech thanking the police officers on duty at the event, as well as the Antifa activists and mainstream media reporters who had shown up.

The enemy showed up – and were thanked for being there. After all, they swelled the crowd.

“Let’s have the arguments — because we can win the arguments; we are winning the arguments here today!” [Tommy Robinson] told the cheering crowd.

Greeted by chants of “Oh, Tommy, Tommy! Tommy, Tommy, Tommy, Tommy Robin-son”, he said it was “unbelievable” to see so many people out supporting freedom of speech.

He said:

The people of this country have been silenced for twenty to thirty years with the tag of “racist”. They have managed to silence people so they’re too scared to speak up when they see things that are wrong. They’re too scared to tell the truth and identify problems with an ideology and a religion in our country, because they’re worried about being called “racist”. They  now realize that tag is dead. No-one cares anymore about being labelled as a “racist”. So they’ve now introduced their new term: “hate speech”. What is “hate speech”?

Robinson cited the case of a 16-year-old boy who went to Speakers’ Corner, a traditional haven of free speech in the British Isles, to debate [a] Muslim street preacher …

He stated facts about Islam, and he was visited last week by counter-terrorism officials from the Prevent strategy. His mother was in pieces: crying, scared, worried. The justification the police give for coming and visiting him is they didn’t like his opinions on Islam.

Robinson warned [about]  these “scare tactics”. [He said] that once people saw one young lad visited by counter-terrorism officers for criticizing Islam, others fall silent.

He also took social media giant Twitter to account for removing him from the platform for pointing out the overrepresentation of Muslims among child grooming gangs, and violent verses in the Islamic holy book.

[He] said that 10,000 accounts on Twitter have been closed at the request of Government for hate, compared to 140 which have been closed for terrorism.

He pointed out that Hamas, Hezbollah, and other proscribed radical Islamic terror groups are still on the platform, but that the priority seems to be “silencing and stopping people like me”. 

“Where we’re heading, Facebook, YouTube, will all remove our views,” he said, telling the crowd about a video he had seen of Yvette Cooper MP, a former Government minister and senior Labour politician, pressuring YouTube bosses to make sure Robinson’s videos are not promoted.

This is Government interference with private companies to remove certain people’s views, which is fascism. What I’m going to do, is I’m going to take Twitter to court. I won’t get my Twitter account back, but what we’ll be able to prove — which needs proving — is that ‘facts’ are now seen as ‘hate’, and the Government is pushing it’s agenda with private companies.

Others who spoke from the platform on the Day For Freedom were Anne Marie Waters, leader of the new ForBritain Party, and Milo Yiannopoulos.

Here is a very long video of the event. Too long, with stretches of uninteresting footage. We searched for the speakers we wanted particularly to hear.

The important thing is, the Day For Freedom was celebrated, and the speakers – particularly the working-class hero and born leader Tommy Robinson, truly a man of the people – said what they wanted to say. As far as we know, up to the time of this writing, no one has been arrested for doing so.

  • Another unbelievable threat to freedom of speech:

    “UK Proposes Six Year Prison Sentences for Online Posts Against Religion, Transgender”

    • I posted that gobsmacking piece of news on our Facebook page this morning. The new Muslim Home Secretary seems to be the instigator of this accelerated thrust towards the total abolition of free speech,

      What I’d like to know is, when are they going to start censoring the Koran as hate speech? It’s full of it.

  • Athrin

    yes, you will win with your arguments, then they will shoot you with their guns….just like lenin, stalin, mao, pol pot, castro, the NK Uns did with their conservatives. Onky mentaly ill, spineless cowards believe they can defeat the left with words…..

    • What guns?

    • Tommy Robinson was put in a prison that was teeming with violent Muslim offenders, and he was attacked in that prison. Despite this, he still continues to speak loudly in public about the things that concern him, and he also chooses to remain in his home town called Luton where there are very many Muslims. He is often threatened and sometimes attacked. Whatever else you want to call him he is certainly not a coward.

        Tommy is a hero. It’s mind boggling to see this descent into fascism develop in England, as well as the rest of Europe. Trump arrested it’s development here, and Obama whines that “our values are not being upheld”. Marxism, fascism and a police state are not our “values”.

      • Robinson has had the difficulty of getting his message out because of the distortions by the leftist media and also because of faux supporters who tried to hijack his movement. Yet in the face of these lies and distortions he pushed on and fought for a sober and clear critique of Islam.

        He reminds me of the like from Kipling’s “If:”

        If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools, …

        Come to think of it, the whole poem describes him to a tee: https://www.poets.org/poetsorg/poem/if—

        A true credit to the British spirit!
