Tommy Robinson, Bellwethers and Belmarsh

Below is Seneca III’s more detailed report on Tommy Robinson’s new digs in southeast London.

Tommy Robinson, Bellwethers and Belmarsh

by Seneca III

There can be little doubt that whether he lives or dies, the Star Chamber prosecution and persecution of Tommy Robinson should become the iconic bellwether to lead us all out of these dark days. Hopefully, as far as his immediate safety is concerned, his imprisonment in Belmarsh Prison will be the deciding factor, possibly working in his favour because Belmarsh is not a single prison but actually four prisons within one.

The main unit is in fact two circumscribed units, a category ‘A’ High Security prison with another Ultra High Security unit inside which houses the most dangerous prisoners (it used to be known as the Guantanamo of the UK). Both the main and High Security units have very strict routines, high level structural design and seriously well-trained staff to prevent prisoners escaping or attacking guards or other prisoners.

Outside of the main building but still within the outer perimeter are two separate units — the HMP Isis Young Offenders Institute and a local prison. The function of the latter case is to accept and process different categories of prisoners from primarily the Central Criminal Court and Magistrates’ Courts in South-East London.

As far as Tommy’s safety goes, everything will depend on which unit he is assigned to, and to which regime. As he will be serving a sentence of circa ten weeks, it is unlikely that he will be moved to another prison within that time frame, and may spend it all in the internal local prison or within the security of the main unit.

Further on the upside, everybody is watching. Lord Pearson has written to the government demanding they explain what provisions are being made for TR’s safety. No doubt this will come out fairly soon, because the Government is desperate to keep a lid on the growing protests and corrosive anger of a significant percentage of the now-defenestrated long-heritage indigenous demographic.

There is also much to be read into the sentence itself and how and why it was determined by the judges — unsurprisingly it turned out to be a desperate compromise on the part of the Government and the Judiciary in order to try and dig themselves out of a hole of their own making. At the end of the day, whilst it satisfied nobody on either side of the ideological divide, sending him to Belmarsh may just have saved TR’s life by keeping him out of other loosely-controlled and poorly-managed lower-category institutions such as the one that nearly got him killed last time before his successful appeal released him to safety whilst awaiting his retrial.

All that said and done, this whole debacle has exposed the root cause of the situation we and TR find ourselves in, that cause being the unfettered immigration of barbarians, primitives and inherently backward criminal cultures and all the destructive ramifications thereof.

Tommy Robinson Returns to Prison

Tommy Robinson has been sent to prison yet again. The latest sentence is six months. As I understand it, three months have also been added from the earlier suspended sentence. Minus time served, that makes (I think) four months. He is expected to serve half of that, so about two months. Which is more than enough time for Mohammed to finish him off.

I put together the collage for the banner at top of this post in September of 2011. That’s almost eight years ago. I don’t remember the details, but it must have been the first time Her Majesty’s Government bunged him into chokey on trumped-up charges. There have been several more since then.

Here’s a report from The Sun on the sentencing of Tommy Robinson.

Matt Bracken sends this excerpt from Politicalite:

JIHADI JAIL: Tommy Robinson Sent To Jail Dubbed ‘Jihadi Training Camp’

RIGHT-Wing activist Tommy Robinson has been sent to Belmarsh Prison that has been likened to a ‘Jihadi Training Camp’ following his 9-month sentence for reporting outside the court of a Muslim grooming gang trial last year.

Robinson, 36 was sentenced to nine months in total at London’s Old Bailey with many dubbing the jailing as a ‘sentence for journalism’.

This seems to be the live-stream of the sentencing.

The Daily Mail reports on the mass demonstration by Tommy’s supporters outside the Old Bailey.

One of my British contacts sent a tip about a White House petition that was set up to appeal for asylum for Tommy:

High-level moves are being tried over here, but, all good options have run out for him. This petition just happened to cross my desk today. It’s a fool’s errand, but, the numbers seem a PR embarrassment to you, too, don’t they?

And what keeps some people’s hearts ticking, literally, can depend on keeping them in the news.

Here’s what the petition says:

Tommy Robinson Appeals to President Trump for Political Asylum

In the following segment with Alex Jones on InfoWars, Tommy Robinson appeals for asylum in the USA. If he fails to be granted it, he will be sent to prison later this week, where he will almost certainly be killed by Muslim inmates.

There are three or four annoying commercial breaks interspersed between the segments that include Tommy, but you can fast-forward past them if (like me) you’re impatient to hear the rest of what Tommy has to say. I couldn’t find a version in which the commercials had been edited out.

One has to wonder why YouTube hasn’t removed all the mirrors of this clip:

Donald Trump is definitely aware of Tommy’s appeal, since it’s well known that the president (or his staff) monitors InfoWars. President Trump may be willing to insult Theresa May and stiff the British ambassador, but there is very little chance that he will cross the Brits by giving asylum to Tommy Robinson. Her Majesty’s government has made it quite clear that imprisoning Tommy Robinson is the highest state priority. I would expect that a quiet word has already been sent to the Trump administration through diplomatic channels, laying out the consequences should Mr. Trump be so bold as to help Tommy out.

Nevertheless, it’s important to spread the word about this. There’s really nothing else we can do at this point.

Life Among the Migrants for a “Stupid German Working Robot”

Christiane Soler is a former volunteer refugee-helper in Germany. When she volunteered to work with the migrants, she whole-heartedly embraced the “Welcoming Culture”. But the reality of the ungrateful, misogynous, violent “refugees” changed her mind. And unlike most Germans, she was willing to violate the consensus and publicly describe what she experienced.

Matt Bracken and Vlad Tepes Discuss Video Samizdat

Last week Vlad Tepes made a guest appearance on an InfoWars segment hosted by Matt Bracken. The video below shows their hour of discussion (with the commercials removed). As you may notice, the video has been hosted on YouTube, but not on Alex Jones’ channel — as far as I know, the InfoWars YouTube channel has been permanently taken down.

This is an example of what I discussed a couple of months ago in “Samizdat in the Age of Digital Totalitarianism”: the imperative to propagate dissident information through distributed lateral networks. That’s what Matt and Vlad talk about in this clip, specifically as it pertains to bit-torrented video platforms:

Dirty Business up in Portland

Below is Mark Steyn’s take on the Antifa-generated street violence in Portland last weekend. He includes a useful portmanteau word to describe the self-appointed arbiters of public ideology: “Klantifa”. I looked the neologism up, and it was evidently coined sometime last summer, but I’d never heard it before.

The Antifa groups (which were all but non-existent in the USA before the election of Donald Trump) are the enforcers of the Democrat party line in major American cities. The cities are run by the Democrat political establishment, which approves of Antifa’s choice of targets. The police stand down because the mayors order them to stand down and let their pet street thugs bash the fash. The Antifa bully boys are ostensibly independent of any party or government or political organization, which provides the plausible deniability that the pols require. The city fathers can then wring their hands and deplore the “violence”, as if it were a natural disaster, like a flood or a tornado:

Portlantifa

My 2014 book The [Un]documented Mark Steyn includes this prescient quotation from a decade earlier:

‘The lofty idea of ‘the war on racism’ is gradually turning into a hideously false ideology,’ the French philosopher Alain Finkielkraut said in 2005. ‘And this anti-racism will be for the 21st century what Communism was for the 20th century: a source of violence.’

Indeed. One is also mindful of a famous aperçu by Ennio Flaiano, the Italian screenwriter who gave us La Dolce Vita and Nights of Cabiria:

In Italia i fascisti si dividono in due categorie : i fascisti e gli antifascisti

.
“In Italy the fascists are divided into two categories: the fascists and the anti-fascists.” In America the division is a little more lop-sided: There is no organized fascist movement except for the so-called anti-fascist movement: Antifa wear uniforms and masks on the streets of American cities and perpetrate violence with the support and connivance of powerful Democrat politicians and their hideously politicized police departments.

The consent of the latter is especially important: in the Democrats’ northern fiefdoms the cops increasingly behave as they did in the party’s old southern fiefdoms — they’re there not to keep the peace but to ensure that their buddies in the Klan — whoops, sorry, I mean Klantifa — get to give the designated “troublemakers” a bloody good hiding. Thus in Portland, Oregon the police stood by and let Antifa beat the crap out of reporter Andy Ngo, steal thousands of dollars’ worth of his equipment, and put him in hospital with a brain hemorrhage. But that’s just policing as usual in a corrupt municipality increasingly without the law. As Democrat Mayor and Police Commissioner Ted Wheeler put it last year, after his officers again sat back and watched as Antifa blocked streets and threatened and intimidated drivers:

I was appalled by what I saw in the video, but I support the Portland Police Bureau’s decision not to intervene.

They’re getting so good at “not intervening” it might be easier for the city simply to lay them off and contract out all “law enforcement” to Antifa.

Are Twitter’s Shareholders the Arbiters of Free Speech in the Netherlands?

That’s what Martin Bosma asks during what seems to be a parliamentary committee hearing (I’m not sure exactly what it was; our Dutch readers can tell us). The incident that prompted the discussion was the suspension of Geert Wilders from Twitter due to his tweet about immigration.

Mr. Bosma is a member of Mr. Wilders’ party, the Party for Freedom (Partij voor de Vrijheid, PVV). However, what is surprising in this instance is that that Jan Middendorp, a representative of a rival party, the VVD, is in broad agreement with the PVV on the issue.

The Political Trial of Geert Wilders

Geert Wilders is on trial, yet again. His “crime” was to ask his supporters whether they wanted more or fewer Moroccans. This is the second time he has been prosecuted for this crime; the first ended in a mistrial.

The announcement below was sent by the PVV (Party for Freedom, Partij voor de Vrijheid).

Political trial against freedom of speech resumes tomorrow morning

Tomorrow morning in the extra-secured court at Schiphol Airport the trial against Geert Wilders resumes.

It is a political trial not only because Geert Wilders is being prosecuted for expressing his opinion, which is not favoured by the political elite. It is a political trial as well because of the political interference in the process.

Earlier this month Geert Wilders called for a parliamentary inquiry into the political interference in his trial.

Wilders’ defense team obtained a notary statement from a former official of the Department of Justice in which the official declares overhearing a conversation between the then Secretary-General and then Minister of Justice Opstelten.

According to this remarkable statement Opstelten explicitly said that the public prosecutor should proceed to prosecute Wilders because ‘he is getting in our way’.

Dutch media reported about contact between Opstelten and the head of the public prosecutor about the case in 2014.

They also mention Opstelten was keen to see Wilders prosecuted.

The Current Minister of Justice Ferd Grapperhaus still refuses to send documents detailing the meetings —which had been officially denied — to parliament.

The documents will remain secret, the minister told MPs.

The original appeal began in May last year, but Wilders’ legal team successfully applied for the judges to be removed after alleging bias.

Both Opstelten and former prosecution chief Herman Bolhaar have recently been heard behind closed doors.

This political interference is unworthy of a Western democracy and this trial must be stopped!

Manhunt in Passau

We posted yesterday about the fake news of a “manhunt” in the German city of Chemnitz, where an Antifa group made up a story about foreigners being chased down by right-wing “racists”. The mainstream media and politicians — including Chancellor Angela Merkel — accepted the confabulation at face value. The imaginary incident was widely used as a bludgeon against the AfD (Alternative für Deutschland Alternative for Germany).

More recently, an actual manhunt occurred on the campus of the University of Passau. A member of a local political group was chased down and badly beaten, as confirmed by eyewitnesses and medical personnel. However, since the victim was a member of the Bavarian chapter of the AfD, and the assailants were leftists, the story didn’t gain much traction. I doubt Mrs. Merkel will ever stand up in front of a microphone to denounce the left-wing extremists of Passau.

Many thanks to JLH for translating this article from Philosophia Perennis:

Hate-Hounding of Dissidents on the Premises of the University of Passau?

June 13, 2019

It is reported that a member of the Young Alternative of Bavaria was subjected to overwhelming verbal abuse by partially masked left extremists. And after being pursued across the university property, received substantial injuries of the upper body and neck caused by blows and strangling grips (injuries attested by a doctor). The attackers gave way only after the subject’s escape into a large group of students.

The person attacked had before this intended to attend a presentation by the higher education group LUKS (so-called “List of Independent Critical Students”) in the facilities of the university. The incident mentioned above occurred when the member was identified as a critic, even before the beginning of the presentation. Criminal complaints against the attackers are being filed.

The Young Alternative for Bavaria is demanding a complete clarification of the situation and follow-through of all necessary steps by the university administration, which can only end with withdrawal of recognition of LUKS as an academic group. The state chair of the Young Alternative of Bavaria, Sven A. Kachelmann, adds: “The link of LUKS with the violence-prone Antifa scene is evident not just in this case. Academia will lose nothing by losing something that can only be regarded with revulsion by defenders of free speech.”

While the Campus Alternative — affiliated with the Young Alternative — continues to be denied use of the facilities of the University of Passau, leftist academic groups make use of taxpayer monies to use the same facilities in order to wage partisan warfare against those who think differently.
