    Leave it to Gavin McInnes to give us an overview of the latest persecution of an English patriot which is both edifying and hilarious. He has pinned down the animating force behind the media-driven vilification of men like Tommy Robinson and those who populate the English Defense League, which is in large measure a function of class prejudice. It’s not enough to foist the worst byproducts of their deracinated, globalist ideology onto them-thereby ruining once thriving, harmonious communities in the West-they expect their victims to jubilantly embrace their new, dysfunctional multicultural society. The news presenters from the BBC don’t despise...

    A small victory for freedom of thought in a nation which has gradually descended into the muck of fascism, aided in no small part by the wholesale importation of Islamic radicals. Paul Weston, himself a victim of political persecution for expressing wrong think, explains why Tommy Robinson is the #1 target of the British government in a disturbing essay for Gates of Vienna, which you can read here.As frightening as what’s transpiring in the UK is to most rational human beings, the sad truth is that these anti-Western witch hunts could very well make there way to the United States,...

    Tommy Robinson, an organiser behind the anti-Islamisation group PEGIDA UK, has been found unconscious after a night out with his family in his hometown of Luton. He is said to have sustained head injuries, and is now recovering in hospital. "Tommy attacked – for those of you asking how he is, he is okay," his personal assistant Helen Lel Gower revealed on Facebook yesterday. The attack is thought to have occurred on Saturday night. "He was on a night out with his wife and was found unconscious," wrote Mrs. Gower. Adding: "They have been at the hospital all night and...

    The Daily Telegraph ^ | February 4, 2016 | Jamie Bartlett
    A few weeks back, Tommy Robinson, former leader of the English Defence League, sent me his self-published memoirs, called Enemy of the State. The book has been largely ignored by most of the established media, although has caused a bit of a stir among counter-Jihadist groups across Europe. I’d recommend people read it, although perhaps not for the reasons Tommy would like you to. First up, I should say something about how it’s written. It’s chronological, starting from his childhood, and runs right up to the end of 2015. Tommy Robinson, whatever you think of him, has had a busy...

    BRITAIN'S newest political movement which has vowed to fight the "Islamification of the West" has marked its official launch today by announcing its first major rally. The UK branch of the far right German campaign group PEGIDA will mark its introduction into the political sphere with a march throughout Newcastle later this month. The new group, which has been set up by former English Defence League (EDL) leader Tommy Robinson, announced the planned protest with a message saying: "Let's show the Islamists we show no fear."

    BRITAIN'S newest political movement controversially branded Islam a "fascist ideology" which is incompatible with British life as it marked its official launch yesterday. The UK branch of the far-right German campaign group PEGIDA marked its introduction into the UK political sphere with a series of provocative and divisive statements about Islam and the current refugee crisis. The new group, which has been set up by former English Defence League (EDL) leader Tommy Robinson, also announced its first planned protest with a message calling on supporters to "save our culture". Addressing reporters at a pub in Luton, Mr Robinson said: "We...

    The arrest of Paul Weston, an anti-immigration campaigner in England, for repeating Winston Churchill’s unflattering observations about Islam in a public speech has been reported around the world with headlines from the US to Russia to Japan. Weston, who leads a small party called LibertyGB, was bundled into a police van outside the Guildhall in the town of Winchester, after being arrested for suspected racial harassment. It is a shocking event because to many people overseas, Britain is still a country where there is freedom of speech. But the Weston arrest is only the latest in a series of incidents...

    I’ve watched the BBC documentary When Tommy Met Mo: Leaving the EDL (you can see the video by clicking on the "Enza Ferreri Blog" link above), which was clearly intended to portray Islam as a peaceful, nice and tolerant “religion”, hijacked by some, in short the usual spin, but this time with the prestigious and authoritative backing of a former English Defence League leader. That Tommy Robinson lent himself to this circus shows what a confused man he is. He has a split personality, at least vis–à–vis Islam. There are times when he appears to understand, at least partly,...

    The unfortunate article published on The Telegraph "Islam is way more English than the EDL" is a classical example of the most myopic and ignorant journalism. The author, Tim Stanley, has no idea of what Islam is, and yet insists in writing about Islam. Just read this: By contrast, most Muslims cling on to values that were once definitively English and that we could do with rediscovering. Islam instructs its followers to cherish their families, to venerate women [by beating and stoning them], to treat strangers kindly [by beheading them], to obey the law of any country they are in...

Namely, that Tommy Robinson and Kevin Carroll, two activists from the anti-Muslim protest group the English Defence League, attempted to conduct a charity walk in East London on behalf of a little girl with neuroblastoma – and included in their plans was to lay a wreath at Woolwich Barracks, the site where British soldier Lee Rigby was slaughtered in broad daylight by a pair of jihadists on May 22.

They were due to speak at an English Defence League march in Woolwich, where Drummer Lee Rigby was killed. A government spokesman said individuals whose presence "is not conducive to the public good" could be excluded by the home secretary. He added: "We condemn all those whose behaviours and views run counter to our shared values and will not stand for extremism in any form."

    In the immediate aftermath of the recent Islamic butchering of a British soldier in broad daylight on a London street, Twitter was awash in outrage — but not so much against the Muslim terrorists. The massive outrage and hatred was directed against the controversial protest movement known as the English Defence League. You read that right. Endless numbers of deranged, brainwashed, politically-correct people took to social media to denounce (in the most derisive and hateful words) not the fact that murderous Muslims had once again made a gruesome public display of jihad on English soil — and boldly rubbed the...

    The terrible events in Woolwich today were a reminder of something very few are willing to accept: we are at war. Despite what Islamic extremists may claim, this war is not being waged against all Muslims. However they may feel about British foreign policy or perceived injustices towards Muslim peoples around the world, most British Muslims accept this simple fact. But many don’t. They see oppression where there is none and they respond not with reason or argument, but with violence. ‘Why?’ is a dangerous question, but it’s one we must ask. And where we find fault, criticisms must be...

It had wanted to repeat a demonstration held last year, when it burned poppies near London's Albert Hall. Theresa May's order will make membership or support of MAC a criminal offence. It is closely linked to seven other previously-banned groups. The organisation, now dissolved, said "the call for Islam will never be silenced by any ban or proscription". Mrs May said she was satisfied that Muslims Against Crusades (MAC) was "simply another name for an organisation already proscribed under a number of names"....

    British police allowed about a hundred jihadists chanting offensive slogans to march through central London Sunday and burn a US flag during the memorial events for the 9/11 massacres ten years ago. At the same time, a group organized by the nationalist English Defense League that gathered to lay wreaths at the U.S. Embassy in London was told to move away in order to avert a possible clash between the groups.
