Tommy Robinson, the British journalist and activist who was jailed for speaking out about the trial of Islamic rape gangs in defiance of court orders, is free and attacking the biased press for trying to destroy his life. Robinson has faced extreme censorship, having his accounts banned from Twitter and Facebook, and is now facing two strikes on YouTube. Robinson released a new video on YouTube going after the fake news, in particular, the BBC.
Tommy Robinson has lost a harassment case against police after a judge told the far-right activist he is ‘not as well known as he might think.
Robinson, who appeared in court under his real name Stephen Yaxley-Lennon had sued Cambridgeshire Constabulary over claims he had been ‘humiliated’ after being thrown out of a pub following a football match.
The 36-year-old, who founded the English Defence League, claimed in Peterborough County Court that police had targeted him because of his beliefs.
Online giants including Amazon and eBay have been accused of censorship by Tommy Robinson fans after they stopped selling his book about the Koran.
On January 7 of this year, I published an article at PJ Media about Amazon removing doormats featuring Qur’an verses from sale because the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) found them offensive. In that article, I asked:
How long will it be before Hamas-linked CAIR starts demanding that books that criticize jihad terror and Sharia oppression of women, gays, and others also be dropped by Amazon?
Tommy Robinson is being threatened with libel action by lawyers representing a 15-year-old Syrian refugee — identified as ‘Jamal’ — who was reportedly attacked at school by a gang of bullies.
Robinson — real name Stephen Yaxley-Lennon — posted a series of videos and Facebook posts about the incident after it went viral, claiming Jamal’s assault was motivated by the boy previously attacking three schoolgirls and a boy, although the mother of one of the schoolgirls has specifically denied Jamal was responsible for the attack. Facebook deleted much of the content for violating community standards, and Robinson has now received a letter seeking to sue him for defamation — members of the public donated US$13,630 (£10,300) to help fund the legal action.
Facebook has banned the third largest political page in the UK from their service, Tommy Robinson. Amazon has just stopped selling his book on the Quran. Twitter and Paypal already acted along these lines months ago.
This is a terrible day for freedom of speech. And possibly an even worse one for the future of social cohesion in Britain.
Does Facebook have a grudge against the right? It’s an accusation that’s been leveled against Mark Zuckerberg before — notably in a Congressional hearing last year — and is rearing its head again, with the suspension of two British right-wing broadcasters, Tommy Robinson and Raheem Kassam.
Tommy Robinson, the far-right founder of the English Defence League, has been permanently banned from Facebook and Instagram for repeatedly breaking the sites’ policies on hate speech, Facebook said.
The company said Robinson, whose real name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, broke rules that ban public calls for violence against people based on protected characteristics; rules that ban supporting or appearing with organised hate groups; and policies that prevent people from using the site to bully others.
The decision to ban Robinson from the social media site could threaten his ability to reach large audiences.
Controversial activist Tommy Robinson called on supporters to cancel their TV licences as thousands gathered outside BBC headquarters for a demonstration.
The former English Defence League leader, whose real name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, held the protest to screen the film Panodrama, which he made in response to investigations by the BBC’s Panorama programme into him.
Supporters, some with England flags draped over their shoulders and others with “Free Tommy” written on their clothing, gathered from 11am on Saturday in the car park in Salford’s Media City.
Robinson arrived on stage at about 2.15pm to chants of “Oh Tommy, Tommy”, and told the crowd: “Evidence of a corrupt media is that not one single journalist in Britain has reported on Panodrama.”
If Tommy Robinson really is the monster that much of the media claim he is, then the left is his Dr Frankenstein.
Almost every aspect of the Tommy Robinson phenomenon – from his positioning of himself as the teller of difficult truths to the idea that he poses a one-man threat to the social order – has been gifted to Robinson by the left.
