Tommy Robinson & UK 'grooming gangs.'

Post by Skeeve » Mon May 28, 2018 11:54 pm

Tommy Robinson was live-streaming in front of a courthouse in the UK.



An article if you are interested here.


EXCLUSIVE: TOMMY ROBINSON’S FIRST MESSAGE FROM PRISON AS ENGLAND AWAKENS
As we reported on Saturday, Fox News is now covering the unprecedented gag order UK officials placed on media to vainly keep the disappearance of Tommy Robinson hidden from the public.

In short, it’s a Soviet-style disappearance: the UK police arrested Robinson, the court ordered the press to not talk about it, and it’s quite likely that Robinson will die in prison given the previous death threats made against the outspoken journalist.

Despite the gag order, US legacy media is now reporting on this sensational story.

According to Fox News:

Sources with knowledge of Robinson’s case spoke on condition of anonymity in part because of fear they would be arrested for contempt. One told Fox that Robinson’s lawyer warned that, considering the presence of Muslim gang members in prison, a 13-month sentence was tantamount to a death sentence.
So what (me wonders) was this trial all about, and why the 'gag order'?

Update: to change title.

There is no longer freedom of speech in the UK, period. It is becoming a totalitarian state.

No filming inside the court, I understand. But what's the deal with no filming outside and the gag order regarding his arrest?

Seems that way...

Media Blackout....
Tommy Robinson, a British activist and journalist, has been arrested outside a Leeds courtroom for livestreaming information about a Muslim gang on trial for raping and grooming hundreds of victims, some as young as eleven. Robinson was taken immediately to prison.

The ongoing trial regards the heinous rape of children as reported by the UK Metro News: "Twenty-six men and two women appeared before a judge at Leeds Crown Court charged with offenses including rape, trafficking, sexual activity with a child, child neglect, child abduction, supplying drugs and making of indecent images of children."

Hundreds of children were allegedly raped and the defendants are now awaiting a verdict in this case. Muslim rape gangs have been an ongoing problem all over England and the British government has been actively trying to hide the widespread crimes from the public by imposing draconian sanctions for reporting on these trials.

This sounds similar to what happened in Newcastle and was reported on last year.

It seems to me the authorities really are in on the sex ring, and not just a case of bad PR about Muslims.

High ranking MPs having guys from Pakistan do the dirty work.

To be fair, the media are under a "gag order" so....
...one can only hope it helps with their "gag reflex" down the road...

UK Judge Orders News Blackout Following Arrest Of Tommy Robinson For Reporting On Sex Grooming Gang Trial
...
Details are sketchy because the judge ordered a complete blackout on reporting of the incident, and as a result, news media—including Breitbart News—were required to remove their stories.

The resulting confusion about Robinson’s arrest, freedom of speech and of the press in the UK, varying reports of Robinson’s 13-, 14-, or 18-month prison term, and concerns about his safety in prison have flooded the internet with outrage and indignation, some righteous, some not.
Below is a copy of the "gag order."

I remember when the Brits used to claim that the US has weak free speech protections because there were :free speech zones" outside the GOP convention. I pointed out their laws against "causing offense" and how rife for abuse that was and they were sure it would never be abused. Now the police are warning people not to be mean on Facebook or they'll come after you.

And now a Soviet-style disappearance...

Addressing the cultural and integrational issues of the grooming gangs are hard. Arresting Tommy Robinson is easy.

What did you expect the great and good to do? (Insert news story of politician bemoaning voter apathy and distrust here).

Ben Shapiro weighs in on Tommy Robinson (for the first 8 - 10 min)...


And some post-gag order (?) lame-stream media coverage...
Conservative outrage after anti-Muslim campaigner Tommy Robinson secretly jailed in Britain
One of Britain’s most notorious anti-Muslim campaigners was arrested for disrupting a trial last week and was sentenced that same day to a year in prison, which the judge ordered news media not to report on.

The gag order backfired, turning English Defense League founder Tommy Robinson into a sort of free-speech martyr to conservatives such as Donald Trump Jr. and Roseanne Barr before the gag order was lifted Tuesday.
Perhaps lifting the gag order will make some of the world-wide public shaming of the UK go away....perhaps not, we'll see.

I think the "Muslim sex abuse" thing is actually has members of the British ruling class at the top, even if it is guys from Pakistan doing the dirty work.

This explains why they have been getting what amounts to official protection more than just a matter a fear of being called racist.

It also explains why the ruling class is so afraid of everyone else these days.

I was told he was arrested for contempt of court. The video makes it clear this is false.

He was arrested under the BS charge of "breaching the peace" and then they found a reason afterwards.

The problem is not so much that the state was being technically incorrect, or that - viewed in isolation- it is unreasonable. The issue is (when viewed in context) this case (like Tony Martin, Munir Hussein etc) shows the failures of the state to protect citizens and punish continued wrongdoing and that the state then comes down disproportionately hard on citizens who react/highlight the state’s failures.
