MUST SEE interview: Who is the real Tommy Robinson?

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

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.

I admire the courage of this Tommy Robinson. He is a rare individual. It is unfortunate there ar so few who have this mans strength and courage. It makes me angry to hear his story.

How can anyone not think that the western world has slipped into the abyss? It may be that we just began our fall but the fall is real and has taken place. I know that there will be individuals like Tommy Robinson and organizations like The Rebel that will stand against radical Islam. But, I think that the fall of what we recognize as western liberal democracy will not live past the next generation. I know I sound like a defeatist and dooms day prophet. Unfortunately, this prediction is far too easy to make. I don’t know who said this but it is very true of the free people of the west that, ‘there is no one willing to fight just when there is something worth fighting for’. In the past there have been great men and women who have fought for freedom and justice and there are some today but wealth and affluence has made us soft and dull. The current Liberal government is evidence of that here in Canada. I wish Tommy Robinson safety and justice. I hope that the governments of countries like England (UK) will stand against injustice and for freedom and the culture of the west – but I fear that this is only wishful thinking. Sharia law and Islamic ideology must be opposed. We can make a distinction between people and the teachings of Islam but our PC culture will not allow it. This PC culture has caused us to fall and now the western world Is losing anything to grab onto.

That was a very fair interview.

How is this for an idea? How about selling the book in the rebel store?

I see the Tommy Robinson’s and the Bill Jones’, et al, as the ‘sheepdogs’ of our various cultures and countries. See this essay for an explanation:
“Sheep, Wolves and Sheepdogs”
A partial solution for Canada’s Islamist and thug problem is found in this essay:

Per Guy Fraser — The Paul Joseph Watson interview was the one Tommy referenced about inadvertently hitting the panic button and the police showed up during the interview. Well worth the watch. Here’s the link to the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gcXqMHk_yDY

We need more people Tommy’s courage and pugnacity.

Tommy is, like all Kids that grew up in the Greater London area, a Scrapper. I know what it is like, I grew up in the same area. When I was a Teenager, you would not think of going out without a weapon of some kind. This could be a Bicycle Chain around your waste, a Flick Knife or Cut Throat Razor. That is what it was like in the Fifties. Muslims started arriving in London when Britain gave up the British Empire. In those days they assimilated into the society and were not half as aggressive as they are now. I know where Tommy is coming from and I hope he keeps his head up. He will not be able to carry a weapon of any kind, the Police would skin him alive.

Canada has just began the down hill journey, that the UK began, years ago. Why can we not learn from others?

As long as we are controlled by the the Left, we are doomed.

This has already started in Canada. Our SCC has decided that “truth is not a defense”. THAT – is laying the groundwork for what’s to come, and that ruling, was a dagger in the heart of free speech, democracy and our way of life. Our Human Rights Tribunals refuse to hear cases against Muslims, they use the law to bash anyone they don’t like. You criticize Islam, you go to jail. It’s already happened here.
The Left getting the police to do their dirty work actually started about 30yrs ago, with the first item being to come down on men in any domestic situation. The police will tell you “it’s a civil matter” when you tell them the ex is withholding the kids. Every single officer from east to west coast. Now tell me any other issue where every single officer in the entire country will give you the same answer! In fact, it’s a criminal offense, and if one applies the zero tolerance policy, they’re obligated to file the charge, but they don’t.
Ezra – would you go to the annual convention of Chiefs of Police and start asking awkward questions? Ask them how come they don’t arrest the politicians that tell them who to arrest or not etc.

This is why I tune into The Rebel.I had never heard of Tommy Robinson on any of the mainstream media here in Canada or US. That’s probably not surprising considering his views against radical Islam. The leftist media here in Canada and the US are afraid to cover the problems the Brits and other European countries are having with Islamists as it goes against the politically correct narative that Islam is a religion of peace. If we don’t get the message out of what is happening in Europe we can expect to have the same problems here in a couple of years once all of the muslim immigrants that are being rushed in are settled into our country.

Ezra I wish you would stop propagating the myth of the “moderate Muslim”. In this article, Mattt Barber points out “why such people are akin to Bigfoot and the Loch Ness monster”:
According to Barber, “Muhammad taught, and the Quran stresses, that a central tenet of Islam is to convert, enslave or kill the infidel. An infidel is anyone who is not Muslim or, depending on who’s doing the killing, belongs to a different sect of Islam. Those who fall into that elusive, perpetually mute category tagged “moderate Muslim” are also infidels. They’re bad Muslims and so, according to the Quran, not Muslims at all”.
Islam means “submission” or “surrender.” “Hypocrites”, that is, those who do not submit to Allah and pattern their lives and actions after the ‘prophet’ Muhammad are commanded to receive the same consequences as infidels:
“O you prophet, perform jihad against the infidels and the hypocrites, and be harsh with them. And their abode will be hell, and evil is the final place”. – Quran 9:73.
As Barber points out, “Whereas ‘Muslim extremists,’ that is, faithful Muslims, kill people extremely; ‘Christian extremists,’ that is, faithful Christians, love people, including their enemies, extremely.”

the persecution of Tommy is exactly the template that will be used here in Canada in the days ahead. Those that stand up and point out the utter cowardice, hypocrisy and treason of the politically correct elite will be defamed and attacked. We already see the beginnings of that now in toronto. As the leftists continue to destroy Canada the tension and conflict is only going to increase, and everybody knows it. Who will end up being Canada’s ‘Tommy Robinson’ ? The public sacrifice the elite leftists will crucify as an example to the masses……

I know exactly what he is talking about — back before most remember, when I got into politics (on the periphery) really – I took issue with the ‘gun control’ bill put forth by Pierre Trudeau. Rather than belabor it here, suffice to say I tangled with politicians, the mainstream media and, often firearms owners. The politicians did not know what t do with me (they had never run into a ‘believer) and the media did not know what to do with me, other than berate me and scoff. And lawful firearms owner did not know what to do, because I was drawing attention to them and shattering the ’safe position’ of saying nothing and pretending there was no problem. Suffice to say that everything I outlined back then has proven to be true, hence the situation firearms owners find themselves in tody8.
The long and short of my comments is that I, like Tommy Robinson, saw something that rubbed us the wrong way and wished to hear off disaster.
Only history will prove either of us correct — but the fact remains and is irrefutable that in today’s world what I said then and what he says now inevitably will affect everyone. And your position and the REBEL are, to my knowledge, the only voice for sanity we have with the potential reach to advise the general public of what is taking place.
I will end this now and hope my comments have been of some help — and, believe me, watching the REBEL gives me some hope for the future.

It takes the police 45 minutes to get to my house as well.

If you defend yourself you are arrested.

In fact the “establishment”, the politicians AND the police under many circumstances can actually be considered the enemy.

If you speak the truth you are labelled as a racist hate speaker.

I truly cannot wait for massive terror attacks to wake this country and others up.

Even then do not defend yourself – if you do you will go to jail.

Speak the truth.

Speak the truth.

Speak the truth.

If you do you will be castigated and censured.

But no one can call you a liar.

Ezra – you have it right.

If the Police won’t do their job because they are cowards’ in that English City Fire their Butts and issue pistols to all the citizens for self protection!

His case is not unusual a radio talk show host named Micheal Savage is band fro entering the U.K. he has spent hundreds of dollar to get off that list P.M. Camoran promised him he would be removed from that list so far he hasn’t Micheal Saavage is still trying. No other radio host has been band from Britian . Due to my hard work I"ve been able to travel I was able to travel to two North African countries this was from 15 to 10 years ago if you could see the hatetred in the eyes that I saw you would come to the same conclution as I have ther is no way I would travel to a Muslim country and that includes Britain
With the Truedope government bring in 50 or 60 thousand non vetted Muslims into our country we are right now falling into the state control of free speech can you imagin when thes 50 K muslims start bringing their mothers father 1.2 or 3 wives their auntes uncles grand parents in the next few years. What skills do they bring we don’t need any bomb builders or sheep herders. Just what we need another 200 thousand government teet suckers’
Here’s a dream I had imagin if there were no Muslimn in North America, just think when you go to the air port no more taking your shoes off no more pat downs now more some one going through your baggage can you imagin kissing your wife good bye at the loading gate you could go to acocert or sports game without being frisked just imagin.

Keep up the good work Ezra! For years msm and the elites have been covering this up.It breaks my heart to see what has happened in England.Everyone should see this video!

Good interview, Ezra. I’d never heard of this Tommy bloke before, but it saddens me that his experiences in the UK do not surprise. Just as is happening here in North America, the PC culture has jumped the shark, so to speak. Up is down. Left is right. Wrong is right. Speaking the truth is no defense when arguing with the left, since they’ll just shut down the conversation by slinging the “racist” accusation. It’s a tactic that has becomes so played, it would be comical if the situation was not so dire.
