One of the problems with a politically correct media, is that they poison you against people they don’t agree with.
I tell you this because when I first heard of our guest today, I learned of him through the mainstream media. Controversial. Right wing. Racist. Hooligan. Low class. Criminal.
His name is Tommy Robinson. And he’s complicated.
He lives in Luton town, a poor working class suburb of London, that has become about one third Muslim in the past twenty years. Other minorities too — Tommy’s soccer hooligan club, the MIGs, I might even call it a gang, were amongst the first to be racially integrated, which is a concept that would boggle a liberal in about three different ways.
I follow Tommy on Twitter — he’s always out with his buddies, of every race imaginable.
Luton is like a science fair experiment, a laboratory test by the fancy people in the fancier neighbourhoods — what happens when you open up unlimited immigration, especially Muslim immigration, and you don’t screen for Muslim extremists, you don’t ask anyone to integrate and become British first.
You get Luton. The MPs and Lords of Parliament who came up with that policy don’t live the reality of it. Working class chavs like Tommy do.
But instead of just organizing his buddies into rumbles for his soccer team, he started to organize for English values. He was the leader of the English Defence League for years — having marches against sharia law.
This made him the target of threats and violence. There's not one in a hundred liberals who, faced with that violence, would stick around.
The left likes to name-call Tommy as a racist. But in fact he’s not — so much so, he’s denounced as a race traitor by neo-Nazis, who think he’s too chummy with Jews and blacks.
He’s been arrested, prosecuted, jailed, for anything and everything — whatever will stick, whatever won’t, just to burn up his time, and energy, and make him lose his motivation.
He was put under court order not to talk about certain political subjects like the police — if you can believe it.
Tommy Robinson is an enemy of radical Islam. But he’s also become an enemy of the state — which sees him as an easier problem to solve than radical Islam itself.
He has a new book out that tells his story — warts and all. It’s called Enemy of the State.
