The Rebel Live 2018: Ezra Levant and Peter McIlvenna on why they support Tommy Robinson

Ezra LevantRebel Commander


"If you believed everything the mainstream media said about Tommy Robinson, you'd never want to meet him."

At The Rebel Live 2018, Ezra Levant looked back on his first encounter with Tommy Robinson, and how impressed he'd been by his passion and intelligence. 

Surprise guest Peter McIlvenna, who flew from the UK to attend, also spoke briefly about Tommy's recent arrest and confinement. He works for Lord Pearson, one of the few UK politicians to publicly defend Robinson.

NOTE: We'd planned to broadcast the livestream in real time for Premium Subscribers, but unfortunately, technical problems at the venue prevented that. However, Premium Members can now watch the entire event, in segments like this one.

Who was Tommy’s lawyer at the contempt case? I’ve hear Ezra say many times that he’s likely a fine lawyer but not familiar with Tommy or contempt. Has anyone vetted this lawyer? Is it possible he a court minion?

What is surprising, and really disappointing, is that Donald Trump silence about Tommy Robinson’s arrest and jailing ! Given this, I’m now not far from thinking that Trump’s profile as a “defensor of freedom of expression” was just another political lie he did to be elected !

Of course, Tommy’s arbitrary arrest and concocted “offence” have nothing to do with the newly appointed muslim Home Secretary. OF COURSE NOT! ISLAMOPHOBIA! THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH MUSLIM VENGEANCE! yeah…

Tomorrow is Thursday, the day Tommy meets with his lawyer. Maybe there will be some news this week. Grateful for Peter McIlvenna’s update.

Tina Sleigh, it is the same thing in Canada. It is tried in every western country to control us. If people don’t find a way to not care about being labeled by people who are wrong, they are done. I can understand young people with families need to be mindful, but those who can speak out, must. I don’t have much to lose. They can call me what ever they want. I was born into a free country and I plan on dying in a free country. I do not want to leave this mess for my children or theirs. The names only have power if its true, and its not true. Having pride in your country and wanting to protect it , and your families, is not racist. Its an obligation. Britain is further down the road but Canada is sinking fast under Trudeau.

To be fair, it is more than being called a bad name such as “racist”. If you are labelled racist in Britain you can lose your friends, family, job….your life is ruined. Tommy was able to stand up to name calling because of a strong support network of good friends and family. But he lived a life filled with danger, death threats, having to move many times, uncertainty and being stripped of his savings by the state. Most people don’t have the strength or courage to endure a life like Tommy’s.
