Tommy Robinson sentenced to a year in prison: The shocking facts UK authorities are trying to keep secret

Rebel Staff

Tommy Robinson was arrested today in Leeds, in the UK, outside the court.

A few hours later he was sentenced to 13 months in prison.

I’ve never heard of that before.

Normally, there’s an alleged offence; then an arrest; then the lawyers get involved; then a first court appearance; and maybe bail; and then disclosure of documents; then a trial; then a conviction; then a sentence. Normally that takes months; maybe years.

It happened today in a few hours.

And while Tommy Robinson is the man who was condemned, I think the UK courts committed murder of their own reputation for liberty and law.

TONIGHT I'll show you exactly what happened. There is a publication ban on this story in the United Kingdom. But the Rebel Media is based in North America, which is why I’m free to talk about it.

Tommy was arrested for causing a disturbance. But in fact, he had just been talking into his cell phone, doing a Facebook video livestream, for one hour.

He was doing journalism — standing outside a court house where a Muslim rape gang was on trial.

Tommy had asked a few tough questions of two Muslim men who were on trial, and who were in court today to hear the verdict on their trial for raping white girls and forcing them into prostitution.

The entire interaction was very brief; it was aggressive, sure. But the men went away quickly — they were just walking into court. There is no rule against hollering at an accused rapist.

And Tommy was very careful throughout his broadcast to call them only accused or alleged criminals. And he was careful about where he stood, because he was held in contempt of court a year ago for doing what every other journalist does: reporting from courthouse steps.

So he was very careful this time. It didn't matter.

The court docket says he's charged for contempt of court — not the breach of the peace that the cops said when they arrested him.

On the court docket I'll show you, you can also see Muslim names — that’s the alleged rape gang members. Apparently the names were subject to a publication ban — but it is a fact that other media had published these names in public.

That’s what they used to arrest Tommy for: For saying those names.

Tommy's long-standing lawyers were not notified of his arrest. Instead, Tommy was rushed into court that moment; given a court-appointed lawyer who was neither an expert in contempt of court law, nor familiar with Tommy or his legal history.

And the hearing was held in a matter of minutes.

Tommy got a longer sentence for reporting on rape gangs, than many rape gangs themselves receive.

What scares me most about this is that sentencing Tommy to a year in prison in the UK is really like a death sentence — most prisons are run by Muslim gangs, any of which would take it as a religious duty to murder Tommy.

There are literally 23,000 jihadis, that is, holy warriors, suspected of being terrorist sleepers — that are known to be in the UK. So the authorities are paralyzed by fear — afraid of being called Islamophobic, and even more afraid of violence from the 23,000 enemies within.

Not Tommy. He speaks truth to power; he’s motivated by a big heart.

But he’s inconvenient.

So he was thrown away today.

And you know what?

It’s almost just as well that the mainstream media were censored — because all they’d have done would be to celebrate, to cheer. On Twitter, the jubilation of Tommy’s opponents was unrestrained. And they were thrilled that he will surely be killed in prison.

Tommy doesn’t work for us anymore, but I spoke to his family and his lawyer, and I’ve offered to help them crowdfund his legal fees, even though we don’t have a formal connection.

I’ll let you know what they say — when I last spoke with them, they hadn’t actually even had a chance to talk with Tommy yet, not even his lawyer.

If they want our help, we’ll help them — even though he’s not with us anymore.

Because he is still the biggest rebel in the whole of the UK.

And he’s not just fighting for his own freedom — he’s fighting for all of ours.

Whether he takes our financial help or not, we’ll be doing our best journalistically to support him.

I just wish the mainstream media would too — and mainstream conservatives.

It’s Tommy today — it’s them tomorrow...

He didn’t break any rules, and was picked up off the street for doing not one thing against any law.
It was a lynching plain and simple, by recently designated mutaween.
They couldn;t catch him for breaking any rules, so they just lynched him. Henchmen for Islam via the globalist government. It is disgusting overreach and makes the law an ass.

Liza Rosie—I have to disagree with your criticism of Fraser. The UK is in a desperate position regarding Human Rights, especially Free Speech, as this page proves. The days of Petitions have long gone. It is time to get physical, or show that you may get physical if things don’t change.

When you are up against tyrants like Theresa May and Justin Trudeau, you don’t send someone like
Andrew Scheer to fix the problem, you send a Conrad Black, Trump or even Bernier.

Maybe he should have obeyed the terms of his “suspended sentence” probation, then.

Judge tells Robinson, we’ll let you go before serving your sentence, but you must obey these rules.
Robinson: (Breaks the rules)
Judge: Back to jail you go!
Rebel: Waaaaa fascist police state! (panhandles for money).

With the media ban on in the U.K. regarding the case I guess no one can safely comment on the case there.

No mention on his twitter feed Ron.

Don’t the British people have any pride? Far away countries have to fight to keep their few freedom fighters out of jail. Why don’t they revolt? Where is the tough Englishman Martin Sims? Hiding as usual.
I’m going to see if Nigel Farage is going to mention Tommy’s situation on his nightly program. I believe that Nigel has been paid to be quiet on what has been happening in the UK, or he is afraid of being Tommy’s cell-mate.

Considering the charges, that sort of comment may be ill advised Fraser.

The Queens prerogative powers are seldom used these days but still exist, and are hers to implement if it she wishes. One of the Queens prerogative powers is the Royal Pardon – The Royal Pardon was originally used to retract death sentences against those wrongly convicted. It is now used to correct errors in sentencing and was recently used to give a posthumous pardon to WW2 codebreaker, Alan Turing.

I think the UK is lost like China, and her freedom is not coming back.
I think Trudeau’s Canada is on its way to the same scenario.
I think the Queen will finally pass away, symbolically, at the same time as her once “Great” Britain.

Tommy, to say the least is in Dire Straits the chances of him ever coming out of jail, unless they put him in protective custody, are very small. He is a pain in the side, not only to the government but more importantly, the Muslims who hold the majority in the EU. He has toured around Europe giving speeches to right wing groups, calling for action and generally stirring up those whom the EU hates. It is unfortunate that Theresa May is a woman who is more interested in her own agenda and her job, she dose not want to rock the boat and will have no time for one of her citizens, arrested for telling the truth.
When Tommy’s time comes, he will go down fighting and he will take at least one of the death cult with him. Keep your pecker up Tommy.

British police despised Tommy because they had to divert valuable police resources away from protecting rape grooming gangs across the UK to watch Tommy campaigning for a Btritain free of rape gangs.

Ezra, The Rebel should organize a protest outside the UK Embassy in Ottawa under the banner, FREE TOMMY ROBINSON, and this should be done on a weekly basis until he is released from prison. We’ll help financially.

They can take us to court.
They can send us to jail.
They can target us with a fatwa.
They can take away our freedom.

But they will never silence us.
They will only make us stronger.
And more determined.
To speak out against Islamization.

Even if Tommy had legitimately breached conditions of the suspended sentence, why 13 months all of a sudden and not the three he was initially threatened with? It sounds like this judge tacked a year onto the initial three months! This judge has a hate on for Tommy. He is either Muslim or one heck of an apologist under orders.
It is clear they are trying to get Tommy Robinson murdered in jail. The British legal system will be have put him to death if this goes through. His family must be frantic.

What’s left of the free world is watching.

I do not care if you love or hate Tommy , that is not what this is about, actions like this are not limited to just people you dislike or disagree with , once the system is this corrupted EVERYONE must accept a level of subjugation or THEY WILL COME FOR YOU AS WELL. DO NOT KID YOURSELF!
commented 2018-05-25 21:19:36 -0400
Robert, I agree with you. The UK needs to be internationally embarrassed as a political prisoner/police state, which it now has demonstrated it is. And there has to be an ongoing campaign for Tommy’s release.

commented 2018-05-25 21:17:29 -0400
UK today will be Canada tomorrow. Today’s generation is easily misled by the hacks in power and brainwashed by extreme left teachers. We who have life experiences will be jailed for objecting and even put in mental hospitals by the delusional leftists for being thought of as insane. Then the jihadis will take over and the world will turn red with human blood. That’s the good news. Do you want to hear the bad?
commented 2018-05-25 21:17:04 -0400
Space Moose you got that right, disturbing and very scary as Canada is headed down the same path.
They want Tommy dead , pure and simple. This will be another huge test of whether the UK can actually be saved, even the people who despise Tommy should be upset at this.
commented 2018-05-25 21:16:44 -0400
It is my understanding that Tommy is serving a one year suspended sentence. If he was found to have breached the conditions, they can have him serve the original one prison sentence.
commented 2018-05-25 21:13:42 -0400
I feel very sorry for Tommy. I watched a lot of his videos and he always came across as a very nice decent guy, someone I would consider a good friend if I knew him personally. I will be storming Heaven’s throne room on his behalf. The fervent and effectual prayers of a righteous man availeth much. May God be with you Tommy.
