Katie Hopkins on the #FreeTommy rally in London: “The crowd is drawn by something bigger than one man”

Katie HopkinsShillman Fellow


For too long, the victims of rape squads in the U.K. were ignored. Rotherham, Telford, Rochdale, Oxford, Newcastle — the list goes on.

But Tommy Robinson refused to look away. Despite known risk to his freedom, he persisted. Reporting known facts from the street outside a court in Leeds where a rape squad faced justice.

He was arrested simply for being there. Arrested, charged & sentenced in five hours. Given 13 months inside Hull Prison for contempt of court. Together with a sinister media ban to silence reporting of his plight.

And so, here today outside Whitehall, people protest.

But there is something else here.

The crowd is drawn by something bigger than Tommy, something greater than one man. Old, young, mothers, daughters and dads, drawn together by a shared sense that our country has got it all wrong, and Britain has lost its way.

I am seriously having trouble with the facts in this story. To think that one of the great, free, western society’s would allow this to happen floors me. Just taking this risk to democracy makes me think the government is hiding or whitewashing something big. Heck, not even in north Korea are you arrested, trialed and sentenced in 5 hours. The fact Britain has chosen to protect “rape gangs” over law abiding citizens tells me we are loosing this battle much faster then expected. The fact Tommy still is in jail even after it hit mainstream tells me that politicians and law makers have already picked their sides, and it is not ours.

Very good comments here. When Tommy is released, which he must be, there needs to be a mining expedition to mine out the people responsible for his latest sentence. The smirking judge — No. 1 for whatever legal punishment is available re: corrupt judges in the UK. Next, whoever told him to do what he did, and I hope it goes high up. Throw that rotten core onto the slag heap of disgraced and punished politicians. Tommy Robinson could lead many people, maybe the entire kingdom, in the big climb out of the pit the UK has fallen into. Just like we’ll have to do here in Canada. Before we know it, we too could be plucked from the street and thrown into prison for opening our mouths.

POINTS TO PONDER…..Once again the British government, London city government and the police MISSED THE POINT OF THIS FREE TOMMY DEMONSTRATION.
Their big mistake was they thought they were dealing with a bunch of football hooligans THEY WERE’NT They were dealing with ordinary British people mothers, children old and young rich and poor, high class and working class in other words THE ORDINARY BRITISH PEOPLE .
The results are more and more ordinary British are joining the march for FREEDOM OF SPEECH, more and more British are rising up to FREE TOMMY ROBINSON. This was not a political demonstration this was CRY FOR FREEDOM. The five "P’s the police, the politicians. the professors, the prosecutors and the press " have better watch out. The people are rising and they will get a surprise at the polls. If anything happens to TOMMY GET READY FOR RIOTS IN THE STREETS AND REVOLUTION.

Thank you Katie!

Did you notice the HUGE press and media coverage of this event. No? Neither did I. Thank goodness for Rebel.media and other internet correspondents. The MSN are beyond shame. They have all become Guardianistas spreading fake news or meaningless news to fill in the gaps which have been left after the truth has been deleted.

Good to see some life in the UK. Keep it up and do not accept the subjugation of your country.

Tommy was imprisoned not for breaking the law (he didn’t), but for embarrassing the traitor establishment that allowed rape gangs to sadistically brutalize young girls because they didn’t want to be called racist or Islamophobic. This is a new form of insanity that has taken hold of the Western world and is destroying it. Tommy has been trying, out of love for his country and people, to expose this insanity and free his country from it.

FREE TOMMY ROBINSON!

FRASER MCBURNEY .

We may see riots and revolution starting tomorrow, when Theresa May makes public and votes on her Brexit bill. The People voted and 1.7m voted for a complete break from the EU and if that break is not a complete one, then the people will respond accordingly.

The next Free Tommy demonstration is July 14 – Whitehall, London.
Britain is at a tipping point right now. There will be an absolute revolt if any harm comes to Tommy.

Yes, we won’t be going away until Tommy is freed, justice is served for these Muslim rape grooming gangs, and the girls are kept safe. God save Britain. There is a special place in hell for the perps and all those involved in this cover up and infringement on the liberty and the safety of the British people. Radical ,political Islam should not be tolerated on any level in any western country. We have to be able to talk about it so the problem can be fixed.
#free Tommy Robinson!

Canada is lost as well, we have simply not gone as far down the road to hell. If we do not fetch ourselves up and get rid of Trudeau next election, we will be in the same mess, hopefully Ford can stop the madness in Ontario. I had hopes for us in Alberta but Kenney has turned into a progressive lunatic who supports 64 genders and opposes parents right to parent, sad. He now supports Trudeau, the leader of the insanity, and has become an apologist for those who unfortunately believed his lies and elected him, a huge disappointment. Britain cannot recover without a civil war, most have no appetite for another N. Ireland and are cowards, as is their
government. Our cities are turning into Islamist hotbeds in Canada and if we don’t get a handle on legal and illegal immigration we will be overrun by people who have no love or loyalty to us. We are being marginalized by the left and treated as though we are second class citizens in our own country, constant badgering, mocking and lecturing of the people of Canada has left us silent for fear of being labelled racist, homophobic, islamophobic or whatever. If we do not find our voice we will be steam rolled and lose the country our forefathers fought for, we cannot let that happen. Diversity is NOT our strength.
