This Tommy Robinson thing is turning into tidal wave.
Tucker Carlson covered it in his show yesterday, and he was absolutely flabbergasted at the behavior of the British authorities. He has Nigel Farage on in the second part of this segment to commiserate, and they both agree that England "is no longer a free country."
This is good Tuck, well worth watching:
We completely agree. Please sign the petition. This arrest could be one of those defining moments when regular people rise up and say, enough is enough.
Does anyone know how one can trust the tabulating from places like Change.org, which leans left? Please let us know in the comments.
From Big League Politics:
A petition to urge British Prime Minister Theresa May to release political prisoner Tommy Robinson has reached its goal of 500,000 signatures.
Robinson, who is most known for founding the English Defense League, was arrested and quickly sentenced to 13 months in prison after attempting to report outside of a courthouse where members of a Muslim grooming gang were on trial. Grooming gangs are an open secret throughout Britain, and are nothing more than child sex trafficking rings.
He was initially arrested for “suspicion of breaching the peace,” but jailed for the completely separate crime of contempt of court.
In Britain, unlike the United States, people can be arrested and held for 48 hours for suspicion of committing a crime. Oftentimes a person arrested under this practice is jailed for completely separate crimes than the arrest reason.
Following the arrest, there was a temporary reporting ban on the case for British news agencies, and many were forced to remove articles about his arrest. Because of this, more underground movements were crafted to fight back.
One of those mediums was a petition on the website Change.org. The petition is designed to put pressure on the British government to free Robinson.
On top of that, there have been a number of public demonstrations in the streets of Britain demanding his release, as well as in the streets of countries across the world.
The media elites are going to do everything in their power to keep Tommy locked up. But the citizens of Britain seem to be rising up.
