Tommy Robinson in Manchester: I changed my mind about vigils today

Tommy RobinsonShillman Fellow

Normally, I think the vigils they hold after every Islamic terrorist attack do more harm than good.

But today, as part of the Rebel UK's coverage of the Manchester bombing, I joined with the thousands of others who came together in this city to mourn, but also to show their defiance.

If I could sum this vigil up in one word, it would be "powerful."

Well putt Carole Masse… And I wonder if about now some of those Frenchies who voted for Macron are having second thoughts?.. Hmmm?…

The British, like the Swedes, the French, the Belgians, etc. , they don’t want their countries. Muslims want it much more than them. So they will win and you, vigil goers, you will be eliminated in time.

Islam is the mother of all cults. Lefty-“liberals” are deranged. Both have blood on their hands.

I think this vigil is good for the moral of the people of Manchester who lost family members. My sincere condolences to all. It looks like the people in Britain are desperately reaching out for help with this horrible situation. The British government has to start poking around at the hornet’s nests and get rid of them.

Agree with Jim Reinhart. Vigils do nothing except make those participating feel a little better. Aside from that it does absolutely nothing in regards to influencing the government.

Lighting candles and chanting in a mass wake after each successive mass murder perpetrated by home grown radicals sheltered and enabled by an anti-populist authoritarian regime, is the act of a whipped, broken and subjugated people. Their freedoms gone, their ability to effect their own fates gone, their ability to get redress from the state gone – this druidic mourning ritual is all that is left to them as they squirm under an iron fist of oppression.

Non dare speak the name of their murderer.

Tommy – If there were thousands of Mancunian Moslems marching with signs saying, “Not in My Name!”, I might be persuaded that vigils are useful. Until then, not so much.

Vigil and vigilante, both the same philologic root from the Latin word vigilans.

I have not changed my mind about the uselessness of vigils, unless some resolve to actually DO SOMETHING about terror attacks comes out of them. How many more vigils need there be before politicians get the nerve to move on this matter against the left wing pandering media. We have been doing the same thing with abortion in this society. Candlelight vigils and marches are not going to work as is evidenced by Justin Trudeau ruling out anyone running as a Liberal in the last election unless they were pro- abortion. So all the vigils etc got us was Trudeau upping the ante on the pro-life people. So by voting as a bloc against Trudeau on this issue and kicking him and the baby killing Liberals out of office, and replacing them with politicians who will stop the baby killing and also deport or jail anyone even remotely involved in terrorist acts- even the slightest sympathy towards it- we will continue to have terrorist attacks and do nothing vigils.

The Mayor of Minneapolis just gave an address in a mosque promising to protect the Muslims from the evil oppressor Donald Trump. The Mayor of Manchester tells his citizens that we have to get used to terrorism, just a cost of doing business. Justin Bieber’s fans want him to cancel his concert in London out of fear for their lives.
PM May raises the threat level to critical and puts 5000 soldiers on notice to protect the citizens from the threats from Islamic terrorists.
The problem isn’t Islam or Islamic terrorists. The real threat is LIBERALISM. The apologists and appeasors that fools have elected to lead us to our doom.

Sorry for you, but expect to attend many more “powerful” vigils. The gov’t has brought soldiers to make sure that the british people do not become terrorist. If you revolt, be certain, you will be considered a terrorist.

Making fun of our politicians, giving opinions about them and their policies or just telling the truth about them is quite acceptable but uttering threats cannot be tolerated. However under the same light we have seen video footage of threats being made against the Jewish Community and others, shouldn’t that type of threatening speech also be prosecuted. I guess the police have the option of prosecuting who they just don’t like.

We are closer to a Communist Block Country than you think. Trudeau is good at one thing; rushing agendas.

Since 9/11 – IN THE NAME OF ISLAM (SATAN): 33,372 Attacks, 214,819 Killed, 295,945 Injured that we know of

In the UK, if you say Muslims are evil Killers you can be put in Jail for a Hate Crime. If you say ‘I think’ Muslims are evil killers you will also be put in jail, this time for a Thought Crime. This is the state of affairs in the UK at this time. All this with a Conservative Government.

The threat rate for Terrorism, in the UK has been raised to severe, this is the highest it can go. If another attack should occur in the near future, I think there will be Riots in the streets. 5,000 British Armed Forces are now on patrol in major City’s across the UK. Are they there to control Muslims, or are they there to control British Citizens? I think the latter is the most likely option.

Land of Hope and Glory or Land of Hope and Halal. Wake up you F…ing Limeys, or die trying.

Note, I was born in London, so I feel I can insult my Cousins, without guilt.

I didn’t see any “Diversity is our Strength” signs or placards saying refugees are welcome during the report, this is a positive shift. It looked like grieving people standing shoulder to shoulder.

Saw some SJW clown on Twitter last night berating someone else for saying it was a Muslim , telling him to wait until they find out who did it. Now of course that same clown will be making excuses after the butthurt calms down.

More and More the only thing that will save the UK will be a civil war.

Bill i have to agree , what they do after is far more telling. Hard to believe this is the country that stood up to nazi bombing with such determination and defiance.

Leviticus 2013 – they’re mourning, lighting their silly candles and engaging in mass make believe that things will be alright. I saw no reports of outrage at government for allowing this Jihadist radicalization to exist in that free nation – and I sure as hell didn’t see any of them shake Tommy’s hand and tell him he was right all along – nope. I see mass stunned silence – certainly no political resolve to fix this reoccuring issue.

There is an elephant in the room – it’s crushing people and although everyone sees it no one will say anything about it. .

Every society has its tipping

England’s is approaching quickly.!

Europe as a whole is doomed, too many wars and conflicts have softened the population , one great family of socialists.

This was an enormous outpouring of emotion and righteous frustration – but this people power is wasted if the corrupt anti-populist/ anti-nationalist power structure who created this problem, manipulate and propagandize it into a celebration of their deadly mediocrity which produces cultural abominations like the one in Manchester.

At this stage it really IS the people against their oppressive tyrannizing government. I bet no word was spoken about the radical ideologies which produced and enable this mass murder of innocents? Were they intimidated into silence?

Bill Elder.. I think that support that you were talking about has manifested self today in the video the Tommy Robinson reported on..
It looks like change is in the wind.!
commented 2017-05-23 21:50:59 -0400
Maybe this is the tipping point for the tolerance of these seventh century savages… Looking by the crowd that was there they may be ready for change.!
