The MSM Pushes Back Against the #FreeTommy Movement

One of our anon commenters left a link to an unusually vile “news” report on Tommy Robinson. Gone is the news from real journalists who limited their reports to who, what, when, where, eschewing purported motives. Now MSM jornolistos comment mostly on the various aspects of “why”. For example, there is the description of Tommy:

Robinson, whose real name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, though he also uses other aliases, is a founder of the English Defense League, which has organized violent demonstrations against Islamic immigrants in the UK in the past decade. More recently, Robinson has branded himself a journalist and campaigner against Islamic extremism, a move that won him contacts with American anti-Muslim activists.

Robinson was arrested in late May outside a courthouse in Leeds, England, while making video recordings about a trial related to child molestation and jailed for 13 months for violating English law limiting publicity during criminal trials.

The real point of this slam by Reuters — aside from its snarky condescension toward TR — is its questioning of the probity of inquiries formally made to the U.K. ambassador in Washington by America’s Ambassador (at-large) for International Religious Freedom. Those queries center around concern for Tommy’s safety while in prison.*

Furthermore, since when does Reuters, infamous for using non-accredited news stringers worldwide, get to decide who is a reporter and who is not? Tommy’s “credentials” would stand up well against those of Reuters’ boys and girls. Tommy Robinson has often been a lone voice raised against Islam’s depredations in his beloved country; who better to report on the story than one of the leading voices crying out for justice?

Certainly, Reuters and the rest of the MSM cabal had set up a wall of silence to not cover this MSM soi-disant “child molestation” story. The collusive, ringing silence allowed Britain’s national shame of horrors to grow unchecked for decades. Had it not been for the UK’s near-total fear of being publicly perceived as “racist”, the massive drugging and grooming of thousands of young British girls, tacitly allowed by cowardly local government agencies (including police), would not have been possible. The pusillanimous MSM went along to get along. It was only with the rise of alternative journalism — e.g., Tommy Robinson, et al. — that the exposure of these grisly crimes became possible. Yet how many hundreds of families’ lives were ruined over the years because of this concatenation of evil and cowardice?

Why are organizations like Reuters permitted to twist reality to suit their own purposes?

Another alternative news source has stepped into the breach to make certain there is adequate coverage of Tommy’s new hearing.

Ezra Levant reports:

I am glad he is traveling to once-Great Britain for this hearing; we made a small donation toward his flight. But while it is important to shed as much sunlight on these proceedings as possible, I have little hope that the hearing will change much. There is now a panel of three judges for the new hearing — rescheduled yet again, this time moved to July 18th — and presided over by Sir Ian Burnett, the Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales. Mr. Levant says this is akin to a small case in the U.S. being brought before the U.S. Chief Justice. But his analogy limps (as do they all). While he’s right about the new gravitas, things are different here. In America, no matter its notoriety, any legal case would have to work its way through the python; there might be intense oversight, but it would have to go through each judicial step. [Remember the Supremes’ refusal to hear the Elian Gonzalez case when Clinton and Janet Reno were pressing to send him back to Cuba? That’s an example.] The UK system appears to be less insulated from quotidian political pressure. If that weren’t the case, why is Britain playing switchies with court dates, judges, and prisons, while stonewalling?

How high-handed can you get?

The #FreeTommy Rally

I found this on Twitter. Short but clear. And the chant has mercifully replaced the cadences of “Who Killed Cock Robin” – which heretofore had looped in me noggin every time I wrote or spoke about the man.

I don’t usually upload videos to my channel. I save that task for our friends. But since this Bastille Day is also another #FreeTommy occasion, I couldn’t resist.

A longer essay, concerning the new #FreeTommy news will eventually be posted [After I get the quiche in the oven].

Trump and Brexit

Seems as though once-Great Britain has just experienced a series of Trump stinkbombs, the biggest of which is his public callout of PM May.

She must be seething and Boris Johnson must be showing all his teeth.

My favorite of Trump’s stinkers was his denouncement of Sadiq Khan. But you’ll look long and hard on Google to find it. Same with Duck Duck Go. I don’t have the patience to look for the quote I saw regarding London’s soaring crime rate but it’s out there if you parse your search just right.

Wait till Scotland gets to tell him what they think of his golf course. Watch hiim do battle with the nay-sayers. Must be his heritage on his mother’s side.

Geert Wilders Is Refused UK Police Protection for #FreeTommy Demo

There isn’t much direct news on this, but here’s a brief piece found on Twitter:

Geert Wilders’ speech for Tommy Robinson rally sabotaged by May’s Government

The United Kingdom is not free. The British people are a bound and seemingly gagged people.

In yet further efforts by the United Kingdom’s government, now seemingly to pander to the Muslim agenda, Geert Wilders’ speech, scheduled for the 14th at the #FreeTommy march, has to be cancelled.

The Party for Freedom leader tweeted this just now.

“UK Ambassador in The Hague just informed the Dutch authorities that they will not provide for my security in London this Saturday and will not give the Dutch diplomatic police weapon permits either, so, unfortunately, I cannot attend nor speak at the #FreeTommy rally in London.”

Is this another piece of timber in the gallows of which Theresa May’s government will hang? Will this attempt to silence the people, yet again, be the final nail and the impetus for the British people to roar yet louder?

Will Geert’s message be live streamed? Screens at the event? Periscope?

The British government may think they have kept Mr. Wilders’ speech out of London on Saturday. They can only prevent his physical appearance, however. His message will not be silenced.

By now, even the most skeptical of Brits are realising that ‘Tommy’ is the collective of all conservative Brits, here in the UK and beyond, that they are trying to censor and lock away.

What will you do? Join the #FreeTommy march 14 July on Whitehall.

It is to be fervently hoped that Geert Wilders will avail himself of technology to be heard at the demonstration. No doubt he’s working with the Middle East Forum to make that happen. Or with Ezra Levant, perhaps.

Don’t you wonder who else will be silenced?

By the way, there seems to be a balloon of Sadiq Khan flying over London. Or perhaps it was a photoshop job. At any rate, as a Muslim he can’t be portrayed as a pig, as has been done to Donald Trump (ask Trump if he cares), so he’ll have to be a bovine steer. You know, the kine missing their manly appurtenances.

An “America First” Judge Nominated to Supreme Court

Or so says Dr. Turley:

The Federalist essay recommending Kavanaugh as the strongest conservative candidate was written by one of his former clerks (who also clerked for Kennedy):

…Kavanaugh is by far the strongest choice for the job. His courageous and influential opinions on countless different issues—presidential power, regulatory overreach, religious liberty, the Second Amendment, and the list goes on—leave no doubt that he would be a forceful conservative justice for decades to come. Conservatives should not be misled by misinformation. Judge Brett Kavanaugh has the principles, the record, and the backbone that we need on the Supreme Court.

But what does that matter? You can expect the “IMPEACH TRUMP!” screaming on the left to begin soon if it hasn’t already. Just one reason for hating him: Kavanaugh’s predilection for calling illegal aliens by their correct designation. This is not an Open Borders jurist.

The End Times of Albion: To Hirsch or Not to Hirsch

The essay below by Seneca III is the latest in the “End Times of Albion” series. Previously: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5, Part 6A, Part 6B, Part 7A.

Hirsch + Hirsch and others — BAME Racism Echoing Through Feminist Megaphones

The End Times of Albion, Part 7B

by Seneca III

To Hirsch or Not to Hirsch

In the closing paragraph of Part 7A I used the phrase ‘into the heart of darkness’; this was not a casual throw-away line. Heart of Darkness is a short novel written in 1899 by the Polish-British novelist Joseph Conrad. It describes a voyage up the Congo River into the Congo Free State in the heart of Africa, a place with which Conrad was well familiar.

The story’s narrator, Charles Marlow, tells his story to friends aboard a boat anchored on the River Thames. This location provides the setting for Marlow’s account of his obsession with the ivory trader Kurtz, and enables Conrad to create a comparison between London and Africa, both as places of darkness. That fictional concept eventually ascended to the status of a reality with the onset of the five days of London riots in August 2011.

The riots were a consequence of the death of Mark Duggan…

…a mixed-race thug and petty criminal known to carry firearms (a pistol inside a sock, gangster style, was recovered, unfired, from the scene) who was shot and killed by police on August 4th. Between 6th and 11th August thousands of people rioted in several London boroughs and in cities and towns across England. The resulting chaos generated looting, arson and mass violence that resulted in the deaths of five people.

Protests started in Tottenham, London. Overnight, looting took place in Tottenham Hale retail park and nearby Wood Green. The following days saw similar scenes in other parts of London, with the most rioting taking place in Hackney, Brixton, Walthamstow, Peckham, Enfield, Battersea, Croydon, Ealing, Barking, Woolwich, Lewisham and East Ham.

From 8 to 10 August, other towns and cities in England — including Birmingham, Coventry, Leicester, Derby, Wolverhampton, Northampton, Nottingham, West Bromwich, Bristol, Liverpool, Manchester, and Salford — saw copycat riots.

A total of 3,443 crimes were committed in London during this period and an estimated £200 million worth of property damage was incurred.

Even pragmatic analysts of the riots attempted to prioritise social factors such as racial tension and unemployment as the cause of the problem but in the end there could be little doubt, despite desperate attempts to cover it up, that criminality and ethnic gang culture were the real root causes…

…and thus ‘Marxist-Socialist Central’, the London School of Economics and Political Science (known in my day as the ‘London School of Marxist Dialectic and Revolution’), via a team lead by a certain Professor Tim Newburn of the Department of Social Policy, but commissioned by and its ‘report’ disseminated by The Guardian as it stuck its oar in and yet again and managed to steer the dialogue away from reality and into the ‘Mea Culpa!’-peddling arms of the vote-whoring collective in Westminster.

Two days after the police shooting of a local black man, Mark Duggan, in north London on 6 August 2011, protestors gathered outside the local police station.

Mishandling of this protest led to the outbreak of violence and looting. Disorder spread rapidly, initially across London, and subsequently to Birmingham, Liverpool, Nottingham, Manchester and Salford.

In the face of considerable speculation about the causes of the riots, and the absence of an official inquiry, the Guardian and the LSE established a unique collaborative study, titled ‘Reading the Riots’…

…The most significant direct policy response to ‘Reading the Riots’ came at the LSE’s conference on 14th December 2011. In her speech, the Home Secretary[1] announced a formal review of best practice in relation to police stop and search powers. A major element of this was a review undertaken by Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary, a primary prompt for which was the LSE and Guardian report. HMIC published their review in July 2013, and in a statement in the House of Commons on 2nd July 2013 the Home Secretary* said she anticipated significant reform of the use of these powers.

Know your enemy. They do not change.

To continue…

You may note in the photograph immediately above that there are a couple of white faces in the middle of the mob, products of our own benefit-sucking criminal underclass.

Middle East Forum Plans Protest Rally for Tommy

The Middle East Forum has been at the forefront of the pushback for Western values. One of their most memorable investigations was a dangerous undertaking which involved going undercover in a number of American mosques to ascertain the percentage of radical mosques. They made their ethno-anthropological assessment using the same observation of objective behaviors in each case. I was pleasantly surprised to find that twenty percent of our mosques are not radicalized. Wish I knew where they are.

This investigation is still germane, even though it was done in 2011.

*   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *

Now they are organizing for Tommy Robinson. I hope their rallies are hugely successful.

NOTE: the links in this announcement may be found on MEF’s site.

MEF Organizes 25,000 Strong Protest in Support of Tommy Robinson; Plans Additional Rallies

Tommy Robinson, the imprisoned English counter-Islamist activist, journalist, and book author, justifiably titled his autobiography Enemy of the State, for he has long been a target of the U.K. authorities impatient with his criticism of Islamism.

The Middle East Forum (MEF) is helping Robinson in his moment of danger. It does so in the context of its Legal Project which since 2007 has defended activists, journalists, politicians, et al. who face harassment, fines, or imprisonment because of their views concerning Islamism and related topics.

MEF is sponsoring and organizing the second “Free Tommy Robinson” gathering in London on July 14. MEF previously provided all the funding and helped organized the first “Free Tommy Robinson” event held June 9 in London.

MEF, along with a coalition of UK advocacy groups and international figures will assemble to advocate for Mr. Robinson’s release and demand greater protections for freedom of speech and freedom of the press in the United Kingdom. MEF is arranging for U.S. Congressman Paul Gosar (Republican of Arizona) to travel to London to speak alongside the Dutch political leader Geert Wilders, and others.

The latest incident began on May 25 with Mr. Robinson reporting on a rape-grooming trial involving Muslim defendants in Leeds, England, for which he was arrested, tried, convicted, sentenced to 13 months prison, and jailed — all in the course of a few hours. To make matters worse, he was tricked out of the right to confer with counsel. Now, he has been moved to historically violent Olney prison, where he is a potential target of Islamist gangs.

“The police allow rape gangs to operate for decades but swoop down within minutes on Tommy Robinson for a peccadillo,” notes Forum president Daniel Pipes. “We worry that his life is now in immediate peril.”

Welfare Chauvinism in Europe?

Another descriptive lecture from Dr. Turley:

He mentions “welfare chauvinism” coming of age in the paradigmatic shift occurring among center-left parties in Europe. Whoo-whee, Bubba, I thought only us knuckle-dragging EverTrumpers believed in that concept.

Sometimes I feel like a motherless child…other times, I feel like the world is in a barrel, twisting and twirling over Niagra Falls.

Leftists Untie!

When The New York Times Was Prescient About Donald Trump

A long essay from 1984 on Donald Trump from The New York Times, no less.

There are so many possible things one could extract from the meandering piece, but on this Fourth of July the following [edited for clarity and spelling] snip seemed most appropriate:

…“The football thing is cute, Trump Tower and the piano and all of that, it’s all cute, but what does it mean?” he says, sounding what borders on a note of uncharacteristic despair.

Asked to explain, he adds: “What does it all mean when some wacko over in Syria can end the world with nuclear weapons?”

He says that his concern for [a] nuclear holocaust is not one that popped into his mind during any recent made-of-television movie. He says that it has been troubling him since his uncle, a nuclear physicist, began talking to him about it 15 years ago.

His greatest dream is to personally do something about the problem and, characteristically, Donald Trump thinks he has an answer to nuclear armament: Let him negotiate arms agreements — he who can talk people into selling $100 million properties to him for $13 million. “Negotiation is an art”, he says, “and I have a gift for it.”

The idea that he would ever be allowed to go into a room alone and negotiate for the United States, let alone be successful in disarming the world, seems the naive musing of an optimistic, deluded young man who has never lost at anything he has tried. But he believes that through years of making his views known and through supporting candidates who share his views, it could someday happen.

He is constantly asked about his interest in running for elective office. Absolutely not, he answers. All of the false smiles and the red tape. It is too difficult to really do anything.

He dislikes meetings and paperwork and is in the enviable position of being able to avoid both.

Well, it took more than thirty years before The Donald changed his mind, rolled up his sleeves, and decided it wasn’t too difficult after all. Now it’s “President Trump”, if you don’t mind… and I don’t. As he transformed New York real estate in that period, perhaps he will transform Washington politics, finally beginning the overdue change of the socialist skyline and the swamp begun under FDR. We can only hope he’ll have enough time.

Meanwhile, Trump continues to lead in crucial domestic areas: his executive orders (a practice his predecessor used to move our country leftward) have, for instance, made it easier to fire incompetent civil servants, and harder for immigrants from terrorist countries to gain entrance (not all of those countries are majority-Islam, despite what the news says).

And then there is his appointment of federal judges. You can see from the wiki that many of those appointments languish in the bowels of our legislative branch. Makes you wonder what they will do to his eventual second choice for the Supreme Court. Have no doubt: it will be brutal.

There’s a great deal to ponder in this, the 242nd year of our independence. To paraphrase Benjamin Franklin’s harried answer a woman’s inquiry at the time they were hammering out the details: “it’s a republic, madam, if you can keep it.”

Happy Fourth of July, y’all.

Mutti Goes Down While Denmark Gets Tough

Dr. Turley’s wrap-up of the too-little-too-late EU Conference last weekend makes his usual salient points:

And the icing on that cake of crow Merkel must eat? Besides Norway’s crackdown, look at Denmark’s amazing new acculturation rules for immigrants. This is tough stuff:

A new set of laws governing life in 25 low-income, heavily Muslim enclaves in Denmark – officially labeled as “ghettos” – is the latest salvo as Europe grapples with integrating an influx of migrants.

Beginning at the age of 1, “ghetto children” must be separated from their “ghetto parents” for 25 hours per week for mandatory instruction in so-called “Danish values,” which includes learning about the language and the traditions of Christmas and Easter, The New York Times reported.

Families that don’t comply with the rules could see their welfare payments cut off. Danish citizens outside of these areas are able to choose whether to enroll children in preschool up to age 6.

The integration of immigrants has been challenging for Denmark, a country known for having a small, rather homogeneous population, the vast majority of which are ethnic Danes. Lawmakers have focused on neighborhoods where immigrants, some placed in these areas by the government, live in dense concentrations and sometimes suffer from higher rates of unemployment and violence.

During a New Year’s speech, Prime Minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen reportedly warned ghettos could “reach out their tentacles onto the streets” by spreading violence, and that, because of ghettos, “cracks have appeared on the map of Denmark.”

Other measures are also being considered, including one that would double the punishment for certain crimes if they are committed in one of the 25 enclaves. Another would impose a four-year prison sentence on immigrant parents who force their children to make extended trips to their country of origin.

Justice Minister Soren Pape Poulsen told the Times these measures are not anti-Muslim.

“That’s nonsense and rubbish,” Poulsen said. “To me this is about, no matter who lives in these areas and who they believe in, they have to profess to the values required to have a good life in Denmark.”

Queen Margrethe said the same thing in her autobiography a few years ago when she claimed that Danes (herself included) had been “lazy” about making sure the new people became full-fledged Danes.

The rest is of that report is here.

And the good news keeps on coming…of course, the B says that when this crackdown comes in Denmark and the immigrants realize government is serious, they’ll all flee to Germany and Sweden. Places where you don’t have to work so hard.

The Cultural Significance of the BurkaBag

The B had this video in his pending list (he’ll add the transcript later). Since his pendings reside on the computer in my office, I get to peek at them. Thus, your early access…it’s only four minutes long, not enough to dissuade me from watching. Besides, there is something about a French woman speaking English; she brings a certain je ne sais quoi to the conversation, non?

The speaker, Céline Pina, outlines the choices of costume facing Islamic women in the West. In other words, choices that wouldn’t confront them had their families stayed in their country of origin. For these bagged women, they might as well have not bothered traveling westward.

Horst Seehofer and Angela Merkel Went Eyeball to Eyeball — And Mutti Blinked

The following report by Egri Nök was published earlier today at Vlad Tepes in a slightly different form.


Angela Merkel on her way to a crisis meeting this morning

Germany: Agreement Between Merkel and Seehofer

by Egri Nök

This agreement below between Angela Merkel and Horst Seehofer was handed to the press moments ago and tweeted out by the CSU MP Dorothee Bär.

Original translation:

In order to better regulate, control and prevent secondary migration, we come to this agreement:

1.   We agree to a new border regime at the German-Austrian border, which ensures that asylum seekers whose asylum procedures are the responsibility of other EU countries, will be refused entry.
2.   To do so, we will establish transit centres, from which the asylum seekers will be directly sent back to the responsible countries (refusing entry on the basis of the legal implication of non-entry). We do not want to act in an uncoordinated fashion, but come to administrative agreements, or establish communication, with the countries concerned.
3.   In those cases where countries refuse administrative agreements, the rejection at the German-Austrian border will be on the basis of an agreement with the Republic of Austria.
 


The original document as it was handed out to the press

Merkel’s part in this agreement is one single sentence: “We do not want to act in an uncoordinated fashion, but come to administrative agreements, or establish communication, with the countries concerned.” This allows her to save face, while still conceding to Seehofer.

The true issue at the core of this was whether Germany has got sovereign national borders and can refuse people entry. Merkel, who ideally would like for Germany to dissolve into a supranational, non-democratic EU superstate, had once again denied national sovereignty two weeks ago (“EU law should always have priority over German law”, on “Anne Will” talk show on Sunday, June 10), which sparked the crisis between her and the new conservative Interior Minister Seehofer. The media onslaught that ensued against Seehofer was so strong that nobody really expected him to come out of this alive.

This is an important day in the fight by Germans for their right to national self-determination, and to even exist as a nation.

German Government Crisis: Seehofer Suggests Resignation

The following report by Egri Nök was published earlier today at Vlad Tepes in a slightly different form.

German Government Crisis: Seehofer Suggests Resignation

by Egri Nök

Angela Merkel’s challenger Horst Seehofer has announced his resignation from his offices as German Interior Minster and head of the CSU, if no consensus can be reached over his demand to turn away illegal migrants at the border — a demand Merkel staunchly rejects.

[Photo caption (not shown): Sunday’s CSU board meeting in Munich, photo: private/Facebook]

On June 14, Merkel had asked Seehofer give her time to negotiate “European solutions” “with the same effect [as turning away illegal migrants at the border]” at this week’s European Summit (June 26.-27.).

The summit’s results were then presented to the German public as a full success; Merkel’s “European solution” was found; all countries had made concessions to Angela Merkel. No one in the German sphere seemed to realize that the negotiations were in fact a win for the countries who opposed migration (see Orban Wins At EU Summit: No One Takes Migrants They Don’t Want). Only yesterday, (Saturday June 30), when Hungary, the Czech Republic and Poland sent out memoranda refuting that they had made any resolutions with Merkel, the German public slowly began to understand that they had been fooled.

Today’s CSU board meeting lasted until late in the night. Attendees passed details to the tabloid Bild: “Seehofer unmistakably made clear what he thought of Merkel’s negotiation results in Brussels: nothing.” He called the prior evening’s discussion with Merkel on the matter “pointless and ineffective”.

In the meantime, after Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic, Greece’s Yanis Varoufakis came out in strong terms about Angela Merkel’s “European Solutions”:
