Yesterday Geert Wilders, the leader of the Party for Freedom (Partij voor de Vrijheid, PVV) in the Netherlands stood in front of the British embassy in The Hague and recorded his outrage about the arrest and imprisonment of Tommy Robinson:
The international coverage of Tommy’s case is unprecedented — he never had anywhere near this much publicity after any of his previous arrests and incarcerations. Maybe his stint at The Rebel has given him a high enough profile in North America so that the word got out.
While I was watching videos about Tommy this evening, I noticed the YouTube sidebar was crammed with clips about the case made by well-known people, not all of them from the “Counterjihad community”. This time is definitely different.
Now we’re all hoping for a Trump tweet about Tommy…
