As we posted earlier tonight, Tommy Robinson appeared on the BBC program “Newsnight” and was interviewed by the host, Jeremy Paxman.
Aeneas has posted his assessment of the EDL leader’s encounter with the legendary Paxman. The program included other guests — including Francis Fukuyama and the British Foreign Secretary — so I am reposting Aeneas’ entire piece from the ICLA website:
Tommy Robinson appeared alongside the UK Foreign Secretary William Hague, End of History author Francis Fukuyama, and Prince Hassan of Jordan. Newsnight juxtaposed the events in Egypt with the prospect of the EDL demonstration in Luton this coming weekend. While the Egyptians move towards the embrace of Islamism and the Muslim Brotherhood, the people of England begin to stand up against it. While our elite dream about ‘proper’ democracy in the Middle East, just as the Muslim Brotherhood are increasing their power and influence in Egypt, the EDL prepare for asserting their democratic rights in England. Of course, what the elite mean by ‘proper’ democracy is compliant democracy that they can manipulate and control just like they do in Britain. In Britain elections are contested by parties that none of the people really want but who are the only ones promoted by the media as likely to stand a chance of winning. The political-media axis thus creates a self-fulfilling prophesy in Western countries like Britain that benefits the elite and not the people.
We are currently witnessing momentous events in global affairs reminiscent of the events that surrounded the fall of the Berlin Wall. In Egypt people confront the regime that they believe betrayed them, in England people are about to take to the streets of Luton, an area of Islamist strength, to lead the way in Europe against the system that was set up by the same international elite that betrayed the people of Egypt. As far as the international elite are concerned, globalisation is king and culture can take a walk. As far as those in power are concerned, the English people and their culture can be sacrificed at the alter of the global economic greed and the interests of the elite.
Francis Fukuyama of ‘End of History’ fame appeared on the same programme as Tommy Robinson who demonstrated that history, from his perspective, is far from over — England will survive the current impulse to impose sharia and move forward to better things! The EDL is leading the way against the ravages of the global elite and their desire to Islamise Western Europe. It seems that, due to the success of Tommy Robinson’s Newsnight appearance, the Luton event will be better attended and more successful than hitherto the EDL leadership had dared to believe. It seems that the Luton demonstration on 5 February 2011 will be truly historic. People who have been oppressed by politically correct bullying and demands for the acceptance of Islamisation will have their chance to make their voices heard.
