Tommy Robinson ‘Disappears:’ Free Speech in England Is Dead

Ed. From the article: “Remember, Kevin Crehan, a British citizen, was imprisoned for a year for leaving a bacon sandwich near a mosque.  He was found murdered in his cell on December 27, 2016.  The same threat hangs over Robinson.”

Author Justin Smith reminds Americans that, “Marco Rubio (R), Kamala Harris (D), Susan Collins (R), and Dianne Feinstein (D) and a long list of others” are attempting to pass into law the same ‘HATE SPEECH’ legislation that sent Tommy Robinson to Hull Prison in London.  This would, overnight, end 2 centuries of free speech in the United States.  

The following article appeared in the American Thinker on June 8th

The arrest of British free speech activist Tommy Robinson has sent shockwaves across the Anglosphere.  The United Kingdom, once dedicated to the values of freedom, has taken a path toward authoritarian government and away from freedom.  The once great nation, which created the Magna Carta and once commanded an empire, is now the land of tyranny.  Unless the British people love their freedom enough and fight this injustice in fierce fashion, it will remain a land silenced by intimidation and fear.

The authoritarian socialist government of the United Kingdom has been out to get Robinson for years on anything it can.  It has harassed, intimidated, arrested, and incarcerated Robinson, as it did last May, since it is now apparently a "crime" to report on the decades-long systematic rape of hundreds of non-Muslim children by gangs of Muslim men, who are now apparently a protected class of people.  Lizzie Dearden of the Independent reported that Robinson was arrested for "breaching the peace," no doubt an absurd pretense by the British authorities in light of the documented film footage of his actions.

Robinson, a former member of the English Defense League whose real name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, is being unfairly persecuted by the U.K. government.  Robinson's "crime" was that he yelled questions outside Leeds Crown Court and named the alleged defendants, like any other reporter.  So what?  The state broadcaster, the BBC, and the mainstream media had already named them.  Why was he arrested, and why were they not arrested?

If gangs of white men had spent decades torturing and raping little Muslim girls and a justly outraged Muslim reporter were covering the case, in a similar manner as Robinson, would he be arrested? 

We all know that the answer is "no," and we know why.  The U.K. is so invested in its politically correct multiculturalism diversity project that it has applied a different treatment of Muslims under the law, which accepts the diversity of legal systems and places the country on a path toward ruin.

Diversity of treatment under the law fragments societies.  Diversity in this sense cannot ever work unless moral values remain constant.  If freedom of speech is a value and a virtue, can any free nation really tolerate the intolerant and those who violently oppose freedom of speech?

Americans should be highly concerned over this case, because the same type of "hate speech laws" used against British citizens are currently being advocated in the U.S. Senate, by Marco Rubio (R), Kamala Harris (D), Susan Collins (R), and Dianne Feinstein (D) and a long list of others.  Hillary Clinton pushed the same laws in 2012 and 2015 and 2017.  Three similar unconstitutional laws aimed at our First Amendment rights were advanced in our Congress, after being drafted by Emgage USA and the Muslim Public Affairs Council, two Islamic organizations and defenders of designated terrorist organizations and their supporters, according to the Investigative Project on Terrorism.  The passage of any such anti-freedom of speech bill would place our country on Britain's same ruinous path.
