As you know, Tommy Robinson is running to be a Member of the European Parliament.
A few days ago, he was talking to voters on the street, and one Muslim man came up to him. Tommy being Tommy, he tried to talk to this man. And he did. Until the man threw a milkshake in his face.
And the media turned this man into a hero. The Guardian newspaper said the milkshake slipped out of his hand, by accident.
Police didn't charge the man. Instead, they helped the attacker get away — gave him a ride to the train station. He boasted about what he did — and praised Allah.
It was an assault. If you doubt me, try throwing a milkshake it to a policeman, or the prime minister — or someone who the establishment haven’t decided is an unperson, like Tommy Robinson.
Carl Benjamin, who has the online nickname Sargon of Akkad, He’s running for the UKIP party; They’ve "milkshaked" him too, as the new verb goes.
Then it happened to Nigel Farage, the leader of the Brexit Party that polls show will win the MEP elections with the most seats.
Is it any wonder?
One brewery tweeted that milkshakes are fine, but bricks are better.
And wouldn’t you know it — in fact, some leftist threw a brick at Tommy’s campaign vehicle’s TV screen and smashed it. Police arrested him, but the man he said he’d do it again.
Burger King UK tweeted out encouragement to any milkshake attackers out there, in a "funny" tweet.
This echoed the mainstream media's consensus:
Throwing milkshakes is not political violence! It's just harmless, hilarious "political theater."
But of course it’s violence.
Throwing something at someone is assault.
The legal test is not if you hurt someone, it’s if you commit a crime, deliberately violating someone.
So according to the left, actual violence is not violence. But just saying or writing mean words — that, to the left, is violence. That's what they're teaching college kids today.
But back to Tommy. Because they start with him, and then move towards the centre, to see what they can get away with.
When Tommy Robinson was campaigning in Oldham, more than 100 Muslim men, many wearing masks, swarmed the town, and threw rocks, bricks and bottles at the men, women and children who were at a peaceful campaign event. And they were escorted, for more than a mile, by the police!
But look at how that was reported — police cars “were smashed”. “Violence erupted.”
It just broke out — like a case of the measles.
That is why no-one trusts the media.
But it’s not just the media. It’s the police. It’s the prosecutors. It’s the politicians.
Hey — how long before political candidates in Canada are attacked by Antifa thugs — with police standing by passively, or even acting as guides and escorts to the thugs?
Five years, I’d say...
NEXT: Minister Catherine McKenna, a.k.a. "Climate Barbie," has become even more shrill about "global warming" lately. Does she really think this kind of scolding will win the Liberals more votes this fall? Columnist Lorne Gunter joins me to talk about it.
FINALLY: Your messages to me!
