EXCLUSIVE Tommy Robinson interview: Election “wasn't a fair fight” — “They could do this to Trump” next

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Last night, results were announced for the EU Parliamentary elections. Tommy Robinson wasn't among the winners — despite receiving the largest number of votes of any independent candidate in UK history.

Instead the brand new Brexit Party, formed only a few weeks ago by Nigel Farage, stormed into the lead, taking votes from the left and the right. 

It's possible that between the Brexit Party and Farage's previous party, UKIP, potential voters for Tommy Robinson were spread too thin among candidates who shared their conservative, populist views.

Our reporter Jessica Swietoniowski was embedded in Tommy's campaign, and a clear pattern emerged from the beginning:

It was Tommy's working class supporters vs. virtually everyone else: the police, Muslim protesters, the mainstream media — and of course, social media giants.

Only a few months ago, Tommy Robinson had the third biggest Facebook account in the entire UK, with nearly a million followers. Not anymore: Tommy has been deplatformed by Facebook, along with Twitter and YouTube. Payment processing company Stripe dropped his election campaign account; when Tommy sent campaign fliers through the mail, unionized postal workers violated the law by not only bragging about not delivering his fliers, but bragging about it on Twitter.

How else to describe this except as interference in an election campaign?

I think Silicon Valley used Tommy as a test case. They deplatformed him during an election, and few people complained. So who will they target next? 

Tommy Robinson joins me tonight to talk about what factors contributed to his loss, what's next for him (besides being taken back to court on July 4) and his warning to other politicians, including Donald Trump, that voices are being silenced on all platforms.

So, Alex Baldor, you think the Rebel should self-censor before Justin does it for them? Red tory, I’m guessing?
Ezra is not the idealist. The Leftists are. Give Horowitz a watch:

I hope that the rest of the rebels may look at my comment and try to shake up Ezra before Rebel media is forced to close. I am sure that as far as Ezra is concerned I talked to the wall. This is explained in the latest theory that is described in “The Science of Fate”: Why Your Future is More Predictable Than You Think by Neuroscientist Dr. Hannah Critchlow. It essentially explains the science behind the fact that people, once they made up their mind, they will stick to it and will ignore any information on the contrary. This is more than theory it has been confirmed by brain imaging.
The summary ideas contained in this book are covered in an interview of Dr. Hannah Critchlow with Ian Tucker of the Guardian that was published on the internet under the following URL:

I misspelled Tommy ’s name it is Tommy Robinson not Tommy Robertson.
I urge you swallow you pride, the time to the November election is short . Hand over the running of Rebel media to a realist that still can turn around the ship of Rebel media. Nigel Farage did it in 6 weeks. We have 5 month If you care about Canada and the Canadians please do it.
commented 2019-05-29 09:34:05 -0400
I see that you keep on ignoring the correspondence that we had last night.
Tommy Robertson lost because he was an Idealist and got supported by a Idealist like you. You call yourself an idealist. If you will deny it I will post your Email here. I looked up the definition of idealism and what it says: Idealism is the practice of forming or pursuing ideals, especially unrealistically. synonyms: utopianism, wishful thinking, romanticism, fantasizing, quixotism, daydreaming, impracticability. Tommy lost but Nigel Farage won because he was a realist not a utopian . Just keep on with your idealism supporting losing causes wasting membership donations and funds to give you a warm feeling and deluding yourself that you are doing Gods work. Typical Jewish attitude of repairing the world
(Tikun Olam). Instead of spending the donation on realistic objectives that might help Canadians not to lose the freedom of expression and publication of truth live in fantasy world. Losing freedom of expression and freedom to publish the truth will shut down Rebel media as well. So what will you do then? Standing against the wall and shouting that this is unfair?

Mr. Robinson has some valid ideas, however, the way he expresses them should be improved. One sees the passion, but not the humility and love for people or country. He needs to be both pro-immigrants who come to help Britain, and anti-rape.

MH Yousef: exactly!!! I hear what yer saying and that’s exactly what we need to do in Canada right now to oust our prancing fruitcake dictator wannabe Trudeau.

There are only 2 methods of discourse/protest that bring desired results.

1 is financial via lawsuits (money).
2 is by force (violence).

It’s worked for blacks, Muslims, infidels & gay/queer/wrongly-wired groups.

I’m a Texan but I keep waiting for the men of the UK to make-up and force justice over there. Stop just drinking Stella Artois & Guiness & watching football. Man up. Gather in #s & intimidate & threaten those in charge.

- Just wait until they combine a Chinese style social rating system with microchip implants. Mark of the beast time.

Dan: for me there would be two defining moments that would hopefully cause an upheaval,the Rebel being shutdown or any other right wing media platform and Trudeau rigging the election(we know he is)and securing another 4yrs as PM. I would hope at this point that people would get off their ass and put the fear of God and the people in that smug punk Trudeau!!!

Holy Smokes Ezra! You do realize…………………………………….

Dan, there will be no civil war in Canada, our war will be a Holy War, or it will be a Holy War as far as our attackers are concerned…….Jihad.

The moneyed elite own the political class, if you are not one of them then you will never become a politician, or if you do you will sit on the back benches for the rest of your career. It is just a big game for them. Look at British Steel, begging for a bail out loan, due to them becoming insolvent and this just before the EU elections. the fact that British Steel is controlled by the EU was never mentioned. The story was that their financial problems were due to the uncertainty of leaving the EU. Theresa May stated that it was illegal for the government to give them any money and there has been nothing mentioned since. It was all about making Brexit look bad, in the eyes of the public.
commented 2019-05-27 22:37:25 -0400
It seems to me that Tommy’s numbers should have been closer to UKIP’s numbers. They were about one third that of UKIP I think.
commented 2019-05-27 22:34:52 -0400
Exactly Ron Voss. Some of it is here now.
As far as I am concerned that mayoral race was the test case here and NO BODY would report fairly on it. As far as the Rebel was concerned there was nothing to see, move on. It should have been a huge scandal and many people should have been exposed.
How can we expect fair elections anywhere anymore with social media and corrupt politicians calling the shots? Its damn hard for anyone to have a fair chance or for the will of the people to be served under those circumstances.

Holy Smokes Ezra! You do realize, that the present situation with Jhadi-Justin-Groper’s fascist stormtroopers on the march, and the rest of the Western world in globalist induced upheaval, the likely fact of THEREBEL being shut down…soon… is, well, likely! And that will likely trigger some kind of assertive or even violent revolution – from the right!
Lets just compare who is in the right and the lefty tents, man to man, in a civil war situation…LOL, yeah.
Civil war in Canada…who would have believed it. Who would have believed we could have a fascist state in Canada…

So what do we do for news and information if, when THEREBEL is shut down?
commented 2019-05-27 22:11:10 -0400
5 years? How about this year given the moves by Trudeau to control the messaging?

Faith Goldy was one of the very first to be completely de-platformed. The whole nine yards, when she ran for mayor. No body ever mentions that. She is so de-platformed that it seems verboten to even speak her name. Its outrageous and unjust.

I’m glad I don’t have social media. That’s not where the war is gonna be fought. It’s a tool but not essential. There’s lots to read to gain knowledge and wisdom. Just convince 2 people

European Elections: Marine Le Pen’s far-right party wins big in EU Parliament……Nigel has a new alliance now.

Fraser Mcburney 21 min. ago. " The Rebel Media did a live broadcast of the elections from Britain. On their You Tube channel they had more watchers than on L.B.C. Radio"
Sounds convincing Fraser, but is there proof anywhere? Did you hear it from Ezra?
LBC is a big Media Outfit.
commented 2019-05-27 21:00:33 -0400
Well that’s a bit of a coincidence, I mentioned in one of my comments over the weekend that, the UK was already legally out of the EU and the Government was being challenged in court about it’s choice to ignore this fact.
There is talk in parliament of all parties forming a coalition which would give them votes enough to override the Brexit Party. Can you imagine the infighting? They are all still in shock about the Farage barrage.
In my opinion, politics in the western world, has been reduced to little more than back street gang fighting. In Canada we have the Trudeau Gang, who are trying to play catch up with the rest of the world, by being the most evil…….Lock and load lads it’s time to rock and roll.
commented 2019-05-27 20:58:02 -0400
I agree.
Tommy should use the progress he made in this election to create a new party, just like Maxime Bernier did. Though it is far more dangerous in England.
He has support and followers. Given the obstacles, he did well.
commented 2019-05-27 20:55:24 -0400
Interesting, though, I wonder if any press will be at Tommy’s trial date in July.
Had he won, he would have been their official burning at the stake.
If he’s not news now, will it matter if anyone knows what happens to him?

The MSM has already been spinning the election results, that is to say, when they actually said/say anything about the results. (I don’t think anything was said today.)
They know how stupid Canadians already are and they are appealing to that by not providing any coverage and so they can really keep them in the dark.
Trudeau’s trying to silence Scheer and Scheer’s trying to silence Bernier.
Europe has spoken.

One of the winners in the North West of England was Tommy Robinson even though he did not win a seat to the E.U. Parliament his votes came out of the forgotten Britain’s those people who have never voted or who have never voted in years. Tommy stood in the North West but all across Britain those forgotten Britain’s were listening to Tommy. To give you idea The Rebel Media did a live broadcast of the elections from Britain. On their You Tube channel they had more watchers than on L.B.C. Radio the donations were coming in on a continuous stream and not lust $5.00 but $20.00 $40.00 $50.0 and even $100.00 amount, it was a pleasure to watch. Support for Tommy came from all over the world from every continent. History has a habit of repeating it’s self and when the rabble raise up, things happen.
commented 2019-05-27 20:39:43 -0400
I believe Tommy’s loss will embolden the leftists to deplatform all other conservatives. Bit by bit, like in Hitler’s Germany, opposition groups will be nullified. Leftists have no principles like ordinary folks do. They only want to gain power and maintain it over people. Let’s NOT stay silent!

What this proves…is that you were fools to think that FACEBOOK was a Socratic Agora….

Professor Peter March (of Mohamed cartoons and cheap/affordable post secondary education fame) used to hold public “philosphy busks” were he would moderate public philosophy discussions in the Socratic tradition…one of the uncomfortable truths that was discovered early on was…there is no modern day equivalent of the Athenian AGORA….and that was back in the 1990s.
