Tommy Robinson, the leader of the English Defence League, has appeared in the media frequently of late, both in Britain and abroad. Paul Weston takes note of a particularly egregious — and possibly criminal — incident in the BBC’s recent treatment of Tommy.
The BBC Sanctions the Murder of Tommy Robinson
by Paul Weston
Just when you think the BBC can stoop no lower into the gutter of Islamic appeasement they gird their leftist loins, put their shoulder to the Dhimmi wheel and come up with quite astounding levels of grotesque behaviour.
The first instance is the BBC Free Speech programme which aired last week. The introduction concentrated on the Islamic murder of Fusilier Lee Rigby, yet for reasons best known to themselves the programme’s producers concentrated on the question of “Is Britain more racist and Islamophobic?”
In order to discuss this vexing question, shortly after a white Englishman was beheaded in the street by Nigerian Muslims, the BBC arranged a panel consisting of a black man who considers Britain to be institutionally racist, a Muslim woman, a mixed-race man and a leftist white woman. Keeping things in order was a carefully bearded young metrosexual chap with the correct political orientation necessary to have landed such a job at the BBC in the first place.
Oh yes, and Tommy Robinson, who was obviously considered so repugnant by the panellists he was consigned to seat 1, row 12, amongst a hostile audience. Only the BBC could manage to pull off such a remarkable piece of blatantly biased social engineering. A white soldier is killed by Muslims and the BBC convenes a panel of pro-Islam leftists to talk about racism and Islamophobia….
Although the program was called Free Speech, the irony of the concerted attacks on Tommy for voicing his free speech was lost on the attackers. Tommy was a racist and that was that, even though they could not actually tell him why he was a racist, despite his asking them to clarify this matter countless times. They simply did not like the fact that he tells the truth about a religion called Islam, so he was therefore a racist no matter how often he told them Islam was not a race.
The second instance and by far the more serious, was Tommy’s appearance on Andrew Neill’s Sunday Politics show. Mr Neill is a political/media heavyweight, unlike the foolish children on Free Speech, which makes his behaviour during the interview a matter of great concern, and possibly even concern for the British police, assuming they have a shred of interest, of course, which they probably do not.
Andrew Neill’s opening words were “Should I call you Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, or Paul Harris or Andrew McMaster?”
Tommy said he could call him Stephen Lennon, and explained that he used aliases because of the death threats he and his family receive on a regular basis from the followers of the religion of peace. These are not unsubstantiated death threats, the police have issued “Osman Warnings” to Tommy, which means that based on information received, the police think the threats are credible.
The idea that Tommy’s children had been threatened with beheading cut no ice with Mr Neill at all. He responded with “We did find your birth certificate, you were born Stephen Christopher Yaxley Lennon in Luton 1982.”
Now, bearing in mind that Tommy had just told him he used aliases because of death threats, was it just sheer stupidity of Mr Neill to broadcast to the Islamic world the full name and year of birth on his birth certificate? Can anyone recollect another example of a BBC guest with credible death threats against them and their children, having his full name and date of birth announced to the wider world?
No, I don’t think it was stupidity. It was deliberately done in order to help enable the murder of Tommy Robinson, whom the BBC leftists hate with a passion. This is more than impartial reporting or bias, it is a genuine desire to help people who wish to kill Tommy do just that.
If no one had been killed by Islamic murderers then perhaps it could be forgiven as simple naivety, but given the murder of Pim Fortuyn, Theo Van Gogh and the attempted murder of countless other public people who have dared question the Religion of Peace, it is absolutely wrong and absolutely unforgiveable. I have often thought the BBC crossed the moral line before, particularly so when they stacked a Question Time audience with hostile Muslims after 9/11, but to actively help Muslims track down a man with death threats against him must surely constitute the BBC’s most wicked, evil and darkest hour to date.
