EDL founder Tommy Robinson to give talk at one of America’s most prestigious universities

Tommy Robinson, founder of the far-right English Defence League, is to give a talk to one of America’s most prestigious universities.

Mr Robinson, 34, who has repeatedly been accused of stoking Islamophobia, will address students of traditionally liberal, Ivy League Columbia University on Tuesday in a talk provocatively entitled: “The Fall of Europe – Mass Immigration”.

    I hope Tommy tells them that what’s happening to Europe is invasion, accomplished with the collusion of its leaders, part. Frau Merkel.

    • Alain

      Even so it will fall on deaf ears for the most part I fear.

      • Dana Garcia

        Certainly the Columbia students have had an education filled with BS diversity propaganda. That’s why it’s important to hear other voices that defy the liberal paradigm and also make more sense.

        I am hopeful that reasonable messages will make a mark, now or in the future when the young people have more life experiences.

    • Dave

      The MSM will be dismissing everything TR has to say and will be calling europe a paradise. Leftists(liberals) are funny that way.

  • Rotty Lover

    It will get cancelled. Can’t have the truth being spoken at a “prestigious” indoctrination center.

    • Bla Bla

      exactly – freedom of speech only works if you share the groupthink of the murderous marxist.

    • Blacksmith

      I give him less than 2% chance of actually speaking.

  • This is exciting — we will get to witness another free speech event cancelled at a University!

    (sorry so jaded — as far as I’m concerned we’re already living under communist dictatorship).

  • Blind Druid

    Prediction — This event will be cancelled due to “security concerns”. But I really hope I am wrong and it goes ahead.

  • Alain

    Of course defending one’s language, culture and country must be called “far-right”.

  • simus1

    Notice how rags like the inde always get in the “founder of the EDL” jab.

    • tom_billesley

      They usually refer to a SPLC hate group classification too.

  • ontario john

    They probably thought he was a soccer player, when they booked him.

  • vwVwwVwv

    Can Tommy bring some soccer hooligans with him, for to play with Antifa?

    • Blacksmith

      Good plan!

      • vwVwwVwv

        American Football is much rougher than Soccer but British Soccer fans are madman.

        • We need a few “mad men” at this point — the NFL has lots of big muscles and impressive tattoos, but they’ve been pussified by the American Left. They’re terrified of standing for the U.S. anthem, even when they play in Britain!

          It was bound to happen sooner or later — that our biggest and toughest men would turn into our biggest cowards. The cocaine, the steroids, the hookers, and the multi-million dollar contracts, predictably led to the NFL’s corruption and the devolution of its players into a bunch of spoiled irresponsible brats with zero life experiences apart from sports and entertainment. Multimillionaires running around a field high on ‘roids, playing a game, is not my idea of “warriors”.

          • vwVwwVwv

            The left hurts our soul, spirit and mind.

        • Blacksmith

          Indeed they are, spent some time in the isles a while back and witnessed this myself. I cannot make myself care that much about a game. Bring them on they will definitely leave their mark.

  • roccolore

    Of course, the fascist left will riot and loot.

    • tom_billesley

      It’s traditional.

  • Norman_In_New_York

    My question for the Columbia student body: “Are you ready to rumble?”

  • Brett McS

    Tommy is a surprisingly effective speaker. He turned around an initially very hostile crowd at the Oxford Union speech.

  • Bless his heart

    That man is correct on so many facts and analysis’.

    In some things he just repeats what the Muslims and EU leaders desiring the end of Europeans and their mixture with Muslims (By their own words, invaders).

    This is an invasion of conquest like Islam has carried out since it broke out of the Arabian Peninsula and began its bloody and murderous invasions. Slaves taking included for forced work and for forced sexual use.
