Tucker Carlson Interviews Tommy Robinson To Discuss His U.K. Incarceration For Speech/Thought Crimes…

Fox News host Tucker Carlson interviews a British man named Tommy Robinson. Mr. Robinson was arrested and thrown in jail for livestreaming in front of a U.K. courthouse where members of an Islamic gang were attending court proceedings under charges of sexual assault for raping schoolgirls.

For two months Mr. Robinson was held in solitary confinement within the British prison system; he describes the alarming sequence of events, and the political weaponization of the British legal system to Tucker Carlson.

    I don’t enjoy adding negative info to a story that is already an outrageous injustice but I think it’s worth pointing out what the editorial staff of Canada’s so called Conservative newspaper “The National Post” wrote about Tommy Robinson’s release and Ezra Levant.

    The “Conservative” Post wrote this hit piece against “ultra right, far right…” Tommy Robinson and Ezra Levant. They even include Trump, Don Jr. and resurrect Bannon into the mix.

    “Tommy Robinson, British anti-Islam activist and darling of the U.S. alt-right, freed on bail.”
    “…jailed for 13 months after live-streaming outside a criminal trial in violation of reporting restrictions.”—–In the entire article there is no mention that the trial involves “grooming and rape gangs of young English teenagers” let alone that they were Pakistani Muslims. The only evil people depicted in the article are Tommy, Ezra, Bannon and Don Jr. If they had seen Tucker’s interview before they wrote this article they would have thrown Carlson into the “ultra right” doghouse.

    I suspect most Canadians have never heard about the grooming gangs in the U.K. Ever wonder why most Canadians still love Obama but hate Trump? They are used to being spoon fed deceptive crap like this and believing it. This vicious propaganda war is being waged in every Western country and this repugnant article reeks of the same type of MSM–Dem dirty tricks that occur in the U.S. These striking similarities of the media hit jobs can not be random coincidences.

      “Far right” is the Left’s smear for anything not leftward of abject communism, applied thoughtlessly and capriciously.

      Grooming gangs is way too euphemistic. They are jihadi inspired rape gangs and the get their inspiration directly from the Qu’ran. Just read ‘Easy Meat’ by Peter Mcgloughlin to get an understanding of what is really going on in the UK. Be prepared to be shocked. It is a lot worse than you have been told.

        This is a very observant and informed comment. As you say, “grooming gangs'” is euphemistic. After having read and researched this story when it first became public about two years’ ago, I would go so far as to say that even the use of “rape gangs” does not go far enough in explaining what was involved. It is not just rape in itself: rape and violation of women and children – both male and female – are a tool of Islamic conquest and subjugation of non-Muslim countries and peoples. This is sanctioned, even mandated by the Koran, which in its turn draws on methods of ancient, primitive and atavistic tribal warfare.

        There is a purpose to these rape gangs which is sinister and very disturbing, part of which is to demoralize the native male population by violation of the women, to weaken bloodlines by casting doubt on the paternity of children, and to emasculate the men by causing fear and terror.

        The numbers of young girls violated in several cities in the north of England are truly terrifying, the scale of which can be obtained by a look at Wikipedia entries on Rotherham and other places. It says something that even Wikipedia, politically correct and all as it is, cannot hide the facts on this.

        It is my firm conviction, after two years extensive reading and study of Islamism, that most Western democracies still do not fully grasp the evil that Islam embodies, despite all the horrifying slaughter by Islamists. The West makes the mistake of viewing Islam through the filter of its own values, which are based on decency and social responsibility. Islam can only be understood by scrutinizing it with unflinching honesty and detachment – if you have got the stomach for it. As for the Qu’ran, it is very far from being a holy book. It is a manual for conquest and domination. It is “Mein Kampf” with a turban.

          The Muslims quite overtly tell the Brits, specifically (and the world, generally) what they are after. They march all over the UK carrying signs saying “British law can go to hell,” and “Democracy can go to hell” and “Sharia will rule,” and the British elites don’t seem to notice. Instead, they have their police arresting and imprisoning Mr. Robinson for drawing attention to what is going on and pulling over cars with British flags on them for being “insensitive to Islam, while allowing Muslims to march with Hezbollah flags and the aforementioned signs in London and elsewhere. It is quite amazing and disconcerning.

      • I remember reading straight from the speech an Islamic ‘modern’ British citizen explaining what Islam expected of Britain. For example, if an Islamic walks you are to walk on the other side of hte street and if an infidel is wearing a coat that they want he is to surrender it.

        Just one example.

        Shall we talk about inbreeding and child marriage and honor killing and ask exactly how these stack up against western laws against inbreeding, against child molestation and about terrorist homicide?

        Yep.

        Jefferson, who tried to talk to some, declared Islam incompatible with America.

        Britain was warned in 2002 at an Islamic conference held in the streets of London, attended by 10s of 1000s, when they declared that within 15 years London would be Islamic. By birth rate alone they would achieve, little knowing at the time that the suicidal globalists would open their doors to immigrants who would, upon attaining the majority, murder them in cold blood.

        We’ve learned an important lesson from the 2016 elections. We were constantly told that Trump could never win, right up to literally the last minutes! I have zero doubt this was purposeful, meant to discourage us from voting and make us feel fringe when in fact we are the majority. (Subtract out all of the dead people, prison inmates, and illegals voting, i’m quite sure Trump was the real winner of the popular vote.) So here too the Dem/globalist propaganda media is quick to label Tommy Robinson as fringe/alt/extremist so that those of us who agree with his views are made to feel like we are in a tiny minority and those who might be convinced by facts to agree with his views are dissuaded from doing any research lest they too be labelled in such a disparaging manner.

The belief in media has kept MANY people away from the voting booths (not to mention things like the sons of senators flattening the tires of hundreds of cars that were to provide transportation to the polls – and miraculous discoveries of hundreds of votes for one person found and accepted from the trunk of a car (Al Franken) – uncontested of course by the spineless RINOs) for years. Trump was elected because the threat of Hillary was greater than the resignation of nothing changing rendering us inactive.

    What continues to remain in question about this entire affair – what is the incentive for those involved to persecute – not only Tommy Robinson, but all who speak against the status quo?
    I recall reading about NoI (Nation of Islam/Farakhan’s goons) calming treacherous neighborhoods in Philadelphia decades ago. There are countless reports of newly incarcerated convicts opting to ‘revert’ to Islam in order to secure protection, better treatment and a halal diet (some say better quality meals). The so called ‘protection’ is achieved by becoming part of the Islamic collective – as the size of that collective grows, so does it’s political/social influence. These Islamic drone like collectives operate behind bars by maintaining a routine which one could assume makes the job of prison guards somewhat easier. Is that one of the incentives?
    But what could possibly inspire legal court representatives to set up those like Tommy Robinson for prison torment/death squads? What is the incentive for prison guards to ignore the hostile actions (tossing feces & spitting in window & verbal threats to family, food, consumables) these prisoners/Islamic drones pose(d) against another prisoner placed in isolation? Has the Islamic collective secured enough political influence to create fear in these prison guards? What about the judge who unjustly sentenced Tommy Robinson to 13 months in prison? Who made the decision to move Tommy Robinson from a prison “with a low percentage of Muslim prisoners (7%)”
    to a prison with the highest percentage of Muslim prisoners (80%) and placed in “isolation”.
    Who was responsible for designating this transfer? Does this individual remain employed? If so, why? There is another video on-line, by Rebel Media’s Ezra Levant which details another alarming detail of Tommy Robinson’s ordeals…on multiple occasions, Tommy Robinson’s prison cell door was left unlocked, leaving him exposed to the threat of physical harm.
    Also, as Tommy was about to address with Tucker Carlson, Tommy was notified of credible threats made against his wife and children – of imminent acid attacks. Tommy felt helpless in prison, not being able to call his family or legal representative(s). Tommy did learn that the police did visit his wife to inform her of these threats…pounding extreme pressure upon the entire family.

      Motivation is to tip the scales demographically and irreversibly destroy British culture and history. In order to do that, they have to keep the invasion on the DL so that by the time people notice, it is too late. Odds are that many gov’t officals at all levels have been paid off by globalist money to act the way that they do. Tommy is calling attention to the invasion as it is happening and getting people woke to the reality that they are being invaded and the globalists’ puppet scum just can’t have that.

      It’s similar to Soros’ PACs funding leftists to drown out the conservatives who don’t have all that much cash because they go about things with integrity. At the end of the day, many fellow travelers and paid off goblins are in charge of local gov’t from DA to Chief of Police and Mayor.

        Through money AND through intimidation – and an Orwellian paranoia (justified) that someone could be snitching on them – the government officials essentially all are globalists, enticed by the promise of trillions and no pesky threat of peasant uprisings from those who do not know their place.

        As always they are short sighted and do not realize that they cannot cage Islamists and so as soon as they have gained domination – through birth and through permitted mosque incitement centers – globalists, spineless, self-absorbed, lazy thinkers and dependent upon security that will in time likely succumb to sharia domination, will perish.

        No trillions. No one world order.

      The Perceived Intent of the Isolation Experience

      In addition to the factors described above, another critical factor in determining the effect of isolation appears to be the perceived intent of the isolation. Experimental research has demonstrated that an individual who receives clues which cause him to experience the isolation situation as potentially threatening is far more likely to develop adverse psychiatric reactions to the isolation experience.

      And Tommy Robinson nearly caused a mistrial of that grooming gang case (and has nearly done so before). How is that justice for the victims?
      And the reason he’s out is because he admitted to breaking the terms of his probation.

      The reason Britain is having issues with both the Tommy Robinsons and the grooming gangs of this world is because they decided to become a socialist state — and those enable and encourage lawlessness. They no longer have any regard for the rule of law in that country and will be getting much worse as time goes along — it will not be pretty.

      I pray my own countrymen see this and come to their senses…but I’m not holding my breathe at this point. The only thing that appears to be standing in the breach, holding the line is the President and a few others — the rest would merrily go along with whatever and to H with the law just as long as they thought it was on “their side” (doesn’t really have to be on their side, they just have to be conned into believing it is, which is easy).

          Correct. And with all due respect, I do believe that “Jenny R.” is a clever advocate of false, parsed, and/or dis-information.
          Vladimir Putin is a bad man. Not only the years in the KGB (which Jenny R. conveniently forgets), but other actions of his—eliminating Russian citizens who disagree with his governance (the Litvinenko poisoning, the assassinations on the streets of political opponents), the suborning of Angela Merkel to get her to sign that huge natural gas deal with Russia, the annexation of Crimea, the problems fomented in Ukraine (all with the purpose of dragging them back into the control from Moscow), among other things.
          Remember also that any activities or talk from Putin regarding “freedom of religion”, including his own attendance at Russian Orthodox services, is part of his continuing agenda (which was also part of the governance under the Czars and under Stalin when the Russian Orthodox Church was re-recognized) to keep organized religion in Russia under the control of the central government.
          I also firmly believe that Putin’s long term goal is the re-establishment of the Russian Empire (with himself as “elected Czar”), and to have that expire extended to other places by either military force, economic measures, or bloodless coups—all in rival movement to Communist China trying to extend its “empire” to the four corners of the Earth.

        the Court of Appeal ruled that Robinson’s second conviction in a year for contempt of court was flawed. In essence, the five hours from arrest to sentence at Leeds Crown Court was rushed. Robinson wasn’t told what specific parts of his activity at the court had been potentially prejudicial to a jury – meaning nobody to this day knows exactly what he did wrong. Further, he immediately removed the offending video from Facebook on the court’s order and the judge should have then adjourned the matter to give him longer to prepare a defence. https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-leeds-45029755

        It’s pretty bad when a country doesn’t allow any reporting of an ongoing trial. Imagine if that had happened during the Traythug debacle. We might have thought that Traythug was a little candy-toting kid skipping through an apartment complex when he was brutally gunned down “like a rabid dog” (per Frederica “Screech” Wilson) by a racist white KKK member.

        Just woke up one day and set about doing “terrible things to his people”?

        Or – and here’s a thought – was Assad attempting to put down attempts to overthrow his validly elected government?

        Overthrow attempts by local Syrian factions and with ample contributions, funding, war equipment, and actual military fighters from outside countries.

        Where’s the rule book that says Assad should have simply gone down willingly?

        What kind of response do we expect if Antifa and other extreme Democrat Leftists attempt to overthrow OUR government, for example a duly-elected President Trump?

        Yeah, Assad did “terrible things to his people” (TM)

      Unfortunately our Democratic propaganda media is not portraying the Robinson case accurately. They are quick to label him anti-Muslim (as if that’s a bad thing) so as to instantly prejudice readers against him. The Atlantic seems to legimiately believe that he broke a British law, that it’s “illegal for anyone to publish information about a trial that could pose a risk to the integrity of the proceedings” and Robinson’s personal comments outside of a court somehow rose to that level. (Did Robinson divulge any information that wasn’t already public?)

      It’s bad here, but at least we’re not being jailed (YET). It hurts me so badly to see the UK England promoting in such a horrific practice.

        I hate the fact that your description of the situation is so accurate. I remember being at a Remembrance Day ceremony in Singapore at Kranji War Memorial and feeling just heartsick at how far Britain has fallen. The men who rest there deserved better than that. One of my British colleagues quoted his grandfather, a Second World War veteran, saying that if he had known Britain would end up in its late 20th Century state, he would have stayed home.

        They were once a great country, but the damned leftists have all but completely poisoned the wellsprings of that greatness. I know very few Britons who are not ashamed of their country’s history, and that fact absolutely appalls me. My disgust and contempt for those teachers and politicians who created such a mindset among the British knows no bounds.

        If you haven’t read George MacDonald Fraser’s “Light’s Out at Signpost,” do so. It is one of Scotland’s finest contemporary writers (and a veteran of XIV Army and Burma) writing about how much the British were forced to change their lives and beliefs despite never having been allowed to voice their opinions about those Government-forced changes. The sense of betrayal is palpable.

      So check this out: http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2017/08/09/muslims-and-islam-key-findings-in-the-u-s-and-around-the-world/ Look at the percentage of people in the US who think that Islam is a problem. 41% believe that Islam encourages violence more than other faiths do. 50% believe that Islam is not part of mainstream American society. (I’m reminded of it every time I see some dumb brainwashed slave woman wearing a headcovering.) 44% believe there’s a natural conflict between Islam and democracy. These are very high numbers! Those of us who are anti-Islam are not a tiny extremist minority. And I do believe in the next several years, especially if we continue to have problems around the world with Muslim violence, those percentages will increase. So if we are not a tiny minority and in fact we are nearly the majority, why are we continually being told that we’re abnormal or fringe or extremist or whatever?

        I want to add that the #1 reason I am anti-Islam is because I’m a woman who absolutely cherishes the freedom and equality that I’ve experienced in the U.S. under non-Islamic rule or influence. Every time I see a woman wearing an Islamic headcovering I think she might as well be wearing a collar and leash. We’re told that it’s the woman’s “choice” but the fact is she has been instructed to wear that covering and she fears punishment if she does not wear it. A couple of times in downtown Chicago I was aghast to see a slave in full burqa! The first time I was stunned into silence, but the second time I yelled at the man and woman and said “YOU HAVE TO BE KIDDING ME!” and something else I can’t recall. The next time I see it I’m going to be more prepared.

        I don’t think anyone would tolerate any other portion of the population being forced to wear certain garments or accessories. Imagine if blacks were all forced to wear headcoverings or burqa but nobody else was. There would be such outcry it would never be allowed to take hold. But when it comes to women, too many people have allowed cultural nonsense to affect their views. In Islam, women are slaves. Period. The headcoverings are one of the outward symbols of that. In London I saw a glass and metal contraption on a woman who was walking several feet behind her slave owner. I was told later on that this is an acceptable alternative to the full head and face covering. Again, might as well be wearing a dog collar and leash. It angers me so.

Given a scenario where a person serving time is intentionally moved from relative safety in confinement to the single most dangerous Muslim populated confinement facility is telling of the weaponization of the un-justice system in the UK. English people are fed up with the globalization politicians ruining Great Britain on so many fronts…immigration, justice system, and the tolerance of crimes directed at Westerners by Muslim street gangs.

    Just as abortion “rights” were the obvious forerunner to legally permissible euthanasia so the entrance of special hate crimes charges were the obvious forerunner to thought crimes.

    It’s not that big a step from punishing someone for what they are thinking when they put a crime into action – to the next level of punishing them for what they are thinking whether they act on it or not.

    And then Strojk (sp) illustrated the slippery slope on the other side when he claimed that it didn’t matter at all what he thought because it wasn’t affecting his actions.

    The inability/unwillingness to be single-minded, think clearly, and live cleanly is destroying our Republic.

    In the 1970s, when I was in my 40s, I was frequently mocked by fellow employees at the law firm and at Lockheed when I would make obvious (to me) observations about sequence and escalation of specifically these kinds of slippery slopes. They just called me the church girl (again) and sort of snickered as they went on their way. I wonder if they are still laughing.

    I am heartily sick and tired of people (on these threads) claiming they are shocked and using the word “unbelievable”. Ok. I believe you that you are shocked and that you don’t believe what you’re seeing but if you didn’t understand, understand now. If you didn’t believe what you were seeing before, believe it now.

    Nothing Bill Clinton has ever done has shocked me because I could smell what I was looking at when he won their primary.

      This may still be represented as dark ages, but you have to go back to before abortion rights to see the precursor to euthanasia.

      The pill IS an abortafacient, that has long been established.

      As Pope Paul foretold: the moment that a woman’s or someone else’s convenience makes it okay to target and kill the innocent baby in a womb all bets are off in terms of humanity respecting life.

      He foretold that from the pill would come divorce, abortion and euthanasia.

      he was vilified, scoffed at and sneered and at this very time, when all of his forecast has been completely confirmed….the radicals in priestly garb CINOs (Catholics in name only) want that prophetic document off the face of the earth.

      SExual liberation and the pill objectified men and women. Women wanted warm bodies to hit their g-spot and they wanted the 14 year old boy’s dream of having no responsibility for rampant sex marathons.

      They don’t see that by trading centuries of cultural wisdom, where a girl took the lead in helping a boy bridging the gap into manhood and fatherhood, for now, when a girl’s deeply spiritual search for orgasmic satisfaction must preempt all fusty cultural norms that foster species continuation, is cultural suicide.

The regional fed entities, and credit card companies based in South Dakota, were incorporating those principles into their procedures and policies so that they could assure their Moslem customers that they were not “charging usury”.

      Islamists have always been plainspoken about their intentions and have demonstrated their ability to implement those intentions, for centuries.

    Other than a general awareness a conservative reporter was not being treated fairly and had been imprisoned for reporting on rape gangs I have not followed the Tommy Robinson case. So I was completely stunned this morning when I watched the videos on Mr. Robinson.

    The videos describing the farce of a “trial” and the blatant violation of human rights by prison authorities was beyond belief when you think it was the British courts and prisons acting this way. This is how I would suspect people in places like Iran have been treated.

    Placing him in a cell across from the prison mosque when his “violation” was press reporting on a Muslim rape/drug gang was indefensible. The fact there were no guards to stop Muslim prisoners from throwing feces and spitting into his cell reeks of terrorism and prisoner abuse.

    Finally when he wisely refused to eat the food prepared by Muslim prisoner’s he was denied the ability to purchase an adequate amount of tinned food to maintain his weight. He lost 42 pounds in 2 months because of an inadequate amount of food.

    What has happened to the once civilized Great Britain??

    The courts and prisons who were commissioned to uphold and preserve the law became its most deliberate violators.

    I pray to God for the protection of Mr. Robinson and his family.

    I located the quote that I mentioned earlier. It is as follows:

    “You have no enemies, you say? Alas, my friend, the boast is poor. He who has mingled in the fray of duty that the brave endure, must have made foes. If you have none, small is the work that you have done. You’ve hit no traitor on the hip. You’ve dashed no cup from perjured lip. You’ve never turned the wrong to right. You’ve been a coward in the fight.”
    ― Charles Mackay

    • Great quote.

      REminds me very strongly of the parable of the three servants given tokens by their masters. Two invest and reap profits. One, either a coward or a laggard, buries it. When pressed by his master why he didn’t do anything with it he said that he knew that his master would get mad at him if he lost it…but his master wisely knows his character and knows that laziness and self-interest kept him from investing time on another’s behalf.

      Too many public servants who ‘have such a fun job’, as erstwhile Senator Al Francken, he of notorious single digit intellect and profane character, described his previous gig, have zero interest in risking the loss of their cushy position, to act on behalf of others. Zero accountability, inside trading, access to the elite of intimidation tactics, gainfully wealthy by virtue of taking bribes from the most unseemly of society.

      The wrong to right is not a factor anymore. Wrong has been embraced and right…is all theirs and soon hopefully not ours, in their minds.

      Out of total curiosity I wonder if the wonderful late Jim McKay ever wrote on character.
