Tommy Robinson goes on trial AGAIN tomorrow. Can we call him a political prisoner now?

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

I usually stay close to home, because I do my show every weekday. But as you know, I’ve gone to the U.K. half a dozen times in recent months for the endless trials of Tommy Robinson.

And I'm going back again tomorrow.

I think this is his fifth court appearance on the same matter — and I fully expect there to be a sixth.

Just a recap:

On May 25, Tommy Robinson was live-streaming political commentary outside a courthouse in Leeds, UK, where inside a Muslim rape gang was on trial. (As chance would have it, the verdict in that trial was actually released just three days ago. Twenty men have been found guilty of being part of a grooming gang that raped and abused girls as young as 11 in Huddersfield.)

Tommy was outside the court, talking about the phenomenon. Not talking about the particulars of the case at hand; but talking about the nationwide phenomenon: In Rotherham alone, 1400 girls were raped over a 16 year period “because people in authority were scared of being labelled racist if they tackled it,” as the Daily Mail reported.

For live-streaming his political commentary outside the court, Tommy was swept off the streets, taken to a police station, charged with contempt of court, prosecuted, convicted, sentenced and jailed in just a few hours, and sentenced to 13 months in prison.

The hearing was so fast — mere minutes — Tommy himself was not allowed to say a word; the judge who threw Tommy in prison — the same judge who was presiding over this rape gang trial — didn’t even watch Tommy’s video. He just threw him in prison. For talking about what rape gangs do.

We crowdfunded his legal bills. And we got him out of prison — after they made him served 10 weeks in solitary confinement. They starved him in there, because a Muslim prison gang cooked the food, and they made it clear to Tommy that they would poison him. So he starved — the prison warden wouldn’t even let him buy food, with his own money. He lost 40 pounds in 10 weeks.

The UK Court of Appeal finally released him, threw out the outrageous ruling from Leeds, and gave a devastating condemnation of the conduct of the case against Tommy.

But bizarrely, they ordered a second trial of the same matter. That’s what Tuesday’s hearing is about.

Just to remind you — Tommy was put in a relatively safe prison at first, but after a week or so, he was transferred to one of the highest Muslim population prisons in the UK. Don’t tell me that wasn’t done to kill him. Or to break him, by forcing him into solitary confinement, claiming it was to protect him.

That’s a political prisoner.

The Court of Appeal itself says he ought not to have been imprisoned. (Contempt of court isn’t even a crime, by the way — it’s akin to a speeding ticket.)

What irks me about this isn’t that this obscures the crisis:

The rape of a generation of British girls, and the underlying problem of culturally unsuited migration bringing rape culture with it.

But what also troubles me is that the establishment is a party to it, and the media in the UK is so complicit.

So I’m going back over there; in fact, I’ve pre-taped this show, and I’m en route right now.

And I’m bringing with me a group of other reporters, from around the world, who are not necessarily Tommy fans, but at least are neutral enough to report honestly from court.

We’re crowdfunding that — you can see more at RealReporters.UK if you’re interested.

Or, come back after the break, and you’ll meet one of those real reporters:

Commentator Andrew Lawton of London, Ontario. We talk about his approach to covering Tommy's case.

FINALLY: Your letters to me!

“Conservative party have bee bought by globalist UN agenda pushers”

Got any proof of your statement Liza Rosie?

The UK today is a ‘Big Brother’ (read George Orwell’s ‘1984) mental prison state in which you either believe the cultural Marxist (includes Sharia law) bullsh!t that is peddled by the state broadcaster/cultural Marxist brainwasher, the BBC, and its private sector clones, the British Traitorstream Media, and govern yourself accordingly, or you are sent to solitary confinement, where you are forced to endure mental torture and starvation. This isn’t paranoid raving, it’s Tommy’s experience. The UK today is a liberal fascist 3RD World Hellhole. This is the end result of a century of creeping Marxist and Islamist influence.

Now why would a cameraman be punished? And why would their family be targetted? I doubt that the decision to use Canadian cameramen is because of some sort of safety or security reason.

Besides, wasn’t the publication ban lifted on the Tommy case?
commented 2018-10-23 02:02:16 -0400
Space Moose if those cameramen live there then they can be punished by the state as well, and maybe their families will be targets. You seem to forget these are not usual circumstances.

Great idea to fund independent reporters from around the world to review and report without your oversight/approval the same event as the agenda driven English media. I’d love to see the CBC explain an event they reported on that they think was exclusively reported by them only to find reporters from around the world had a different take as their closed circle had.

Robert Hurley Jr. I could not agree more.
You have Trump. if Obama had run or Hillary had got in, your country would be full on getting away the same fascist totalitarian bullsht. All of our politicians in the three parties, the New Democrats, Liberals and Conservative party have bee bought by globalist UN agenda pushers. Trump is fighting it. We have no one in any power position to fight it. Maxime Bernier is the only ray of hope in sight for the future of a True North Strong And Free.
“This is so darn serious, Canada.”

Exactly why we must start to battle hard here in Canada,give this scourge called Islam a black eye and bloody nose. There should be zero tolerance for this filth!!

Well said Craig.

If you fight, then there is a chance. If you do not fight, then failure is guaranteed. The “odds” are irrelevant. How you fight (fighting smart) is the only matter of importance."

And fight we must because we are all “Tommy Robinson”

Britain has fallen. If I were Tommy, I’d get out as fast as I can. There is no justice there, no security, and no liberty. They all sold their country to the Arabs a long time ago.

I hear there was a secret court
Journalists weren’t allowed to report
But you don’t really care, for freedom do yeah?

It goes like this without the 5th
The Gavel falls and they cuff your rists
It’s not OK that this is how they rule yeah
How they rule ya
How they rule ya
How they rule ya

But Tommy has been hear before
He’s seen this room and he’s walked this floor
Last time they tried to kill him, but he endured yeah

They need the votes for this growing state
And won’t stop who their voters rape
It’s not OK that this is how they rule yeah
How they rule ya
How they rule ya
How they rule ya

There was a time they let you know
Who’s really coming to your shores
But now they never tell the story true yeah

The state tries to say Tommy has racial hate
It’s really a fear of a caliphate
The state says “no, it’s how we rule ya”
How we rule ya
How we rule ya
How we rule ya

Pedophiles are celbrated
Tommy Robinson is incarcerated
But you never seem to care for children do ya?

The grooming gangs moved in on you
And the kids looked up to you for truth
Please just don’t say “baby this how the rule ya”

How they rule ya
How they rule ya
How they rule ya

Why doesn’t Tommy just sue the living be-jezus out of the state?

Robert H. JR..I mentioned this before…Canada and America should form some sort of hybrid partnership.

Right now..imo.. it’s globalism/tyranny vs Liberty, Democracy and Freedom of Speech. I wonder if the President could do a takeover of Canada via on paper and ink?

God bless your journey. You’re in my prayers.

Mr. Greeley, I agree with your last message-most of it. You are already at war!! Patience is not a virtue when your nation is circling the toilet bowl on several important issues such as immigration and now, gun confiscation coming to all legal, law-abiding Canadians!
It’s time for you to form a new, anti-LEFTIST party of your own. The “Opposition” can’t even tie its own laces! Start there. Maxwell Bernier or whoever is looking to form a true conservative-center-right Party that holds convictions that are traditional to Canadians. If you don’t begin to push back in some meaningful way, Canada is lost.
I believe Trudeau has ALREADY decided to CONFISCATE your guns. So how will you protect yourselves criminals who will NOT give up their guns? PS. They will get as many as needed from your neighbor, America. So, again, how are law abiding Canadians going to protect themselves?? This is so darn serious, Canada.

- How the British government has handled these grooming gangs constitutes criminal negligence. How they’ve treated Tommy is disgraceful. If it wasn’t for alternative media people wouldn’t know what’s going on anywhere. The elite’s attempt to silence Tommy will just make the story bigger just like their attempt to censor the Gosnell movie has made it more popular. https://dailycaller.com/2018/10/15/gosnell-film-breaks-into-top-10-films-at-the-box-office-on-opening-weekend/

In defense of Britain. The only things British in Tommy’s court appearance is Tommy himself and the actual Court House, all the rest is nothing but a farce. The fact that the law in England is in fact EU law, British law having been swept aside when they signed in to the EU, will put Tommy and his Lawyers at a great disadvantage, they will be fighting the dogma of Communism and the ‘fear’ that the whole system has of Tommy. They, the establishment, will want Tommy out of sight and forgotten, he is a danger to the Marxist agenda.

In my own simple opinion, I think that the only glimmer of hope for Tommy is the fact that Ezra and the other reporters that he has with him will tell the truth. The fact that they come from far a field is an added bonus, for as we know, the Rebels and their story will travel across the world.

Good Luck Tommy……..Keep Your effin pecker up, you ain’t alone. Yet.

I’m simply amazed at how many Lefties Harass “The Rebel Media”!! Ha, ha, ha!! The “STATE RUNCBC “reporters” constantly go after the Rebel and founder, Ezra Levant. I’m a new subscriber from Florida, USA. The CBC is embarrassingly snarky, whiny and outright childish whenever Ezra or the Rebel is spoken of anywhere. Why are they so scared of the Rebel? Even Canada’s Opposition party “banned” the Rebel Media from even covering their convention! What the hell?? Ezra just set up outside and all involved were mostly happy to see and speak to him. So, I’m wondering if there is some backstory as a new subscriber from the U.S.?
Is there someone out there who can explain this to me??
I’ve never seen or heard ANYTHING like this! Is the Media, CBC, this pathetic??

“The reality is that action is easy. Patience and planning are difficult. Emotional reaction is simple. Quiet professionalism is complicated.

This is the dynamic that is plaguing the liberty movement today; the battle between our emotional drive to jump headlong into conflict with our progressively corrupt establishment, and the absolute necessity for intelligent strategy and proper timing.

The issue here is not “fighting.” Most of us know and accept the fact that a fight is coming whether we like it or not. I say by all means, let’s fight, but fighting is not enough. If we fight, we must fight TO WIN, and this requires fighting smart.

On the other side of the coin, the weak handed and weak hearted will argue that fighting in any respect is “useless” or “immoral” and will result in failure. This is the pacifist camp, which never produces much in the way of practical solutions. There are very useful and peaceful methods for non-participation and nullification, most of which I am happy to promote. That said, non-participation is only part of the battle. If you are dealing with a psychopathic adversary (which we are), ultimately that adversary will use overt violence to stop you from nullifying their authority. If you are not willing to use active self defense against true evil based on some deluded Gandhi complex, then you and the historical memory of you will be erased. It is perfectly possible for a person to fight in self defense while maintaining his core principles.

If you fight, then there is a chance. If you do not fight, then failure is guaranteed. The “odds” are irrelevant. How you fight (fighting smart) is the only matter of importance."

Hey Ezra, glad you are covering Tommy Robinson’s plight at the hands of the UK gov. Why do you STILL regard England or Canada as strong, virtuous defenders of human rights? Like Freedom of Speech? Neither is, in fact. Only the United States of America directly protects gov. from infringing on ANY of OUR natural rights as laid out in America’s Bill of Rights. Anyway, what’s happening to T.R. is proof positive for the whole world to see! England IS NOT a Free NATION, like the U.S.A. This Truth should be shared, not covered up out of national pride or something else. As for the Media Elites in the UK hating Tommy? Of course, they hate him. He makes them look like the Mouthpieces they are of the U.K. gov.! Any developed nation still using a State Broadcaster like the BBC in UK is just wrong! The State should not be in broadcasting-at all! They could be regulators, such as in the US. But, in UK, the BBC is the be-all, end-all, when it comes to the News???
How could ANYTHING possibly go wrong?!! (see CBC in CA)
Have a safe visit and say hi to Tommy for me!
Yours truly,
Robert Hurley, Jr

Best of luck to you Tommy Robinson, I fear you will need all you can get.
The game is rigged and not in Tommie’s favor.

Space Cadet….Your obsession with Ezra and how the Rebel conducts its business is border line stalker. It is getting weird now….really!!
Buck up or shut up!

I’m glad I had a part in sending reporters over to the UK to cover this important trial. If they can do what they did to Tommy Robinson and get away with it, will any of us be safe? Precident could be set to put any discenters in prison. Let’s not be spectators on this but active rebels. The establishment needs a good body politic check.

Space Moose asks … yet again, “Now why does Ezra need to fly camra men to England? Ezra already has a crew in England, can’t he use those camera men?”

Space Moose, I am not sure why you are so hung-up on The Rebel’s investments since you do not contribute anything at all to The Rebel, not even a subscription … this based on your own admissions.

It just seems you are obsessed to the point of it being a bit on the creepy side.

I really like Andrew Lawton for his clear thinking. He is an intelligent fellow who is articulate without any “umm’s and ahhhh’s”.

I look forward to reading/viewing his reports on both the Tommy Robinson trial and the Brexit issue … and all the others as well.

Does anyone know the other charges that the judge put on him?
