British 'Justice' And National Suicide

Tommy Robinson's Arrest Points to Britain's National Suicide

When anti-Islamist Tommy Robinson was arrested recently in Britain, it was the direct result of cultural suicide and a rejection of western Judeo-Christian values — in place of political correctness and Islamic appeasement.
Along with its European allies, Britain has chosen submission over strength and tyranny over truth. The result has been the self-destruction of one of the greatest nations in the world.
For the high crime of streaming a Facebook Live video and covering an alleged Muslim rape gang entering a courtroom for trial, Robinson was arrested and detained by British police. In tyrannical fashion, the specific details of Robinson’s sentence remain hidden since a judge placed a gag order on the case, preventing reporters from covering it.
Think of it: A country finds merely filming an alleged child-grooming rape gang so offensive that it must jail those who do so.
Britain has placed more emphasis on silencing opponents of Islamism and unfettered immigration than it has on preventing Islamic terrorism, or the heinous crimes committed by Islamist gangs, such as the one Robinson was committed to exposing.

Robinson was surrounded by more than a half-dozen police officers — who placed him under arrest for what they called "breach of peace." Really? Since when is using Facebook Live considered a "breach of peace"? Since the Islamism of Europe, apparently. This is what the radical Left and the Islamists they appease have so much in common with, their self-entitled desire to silence everyone they oppose.

Freedom of speech has come under relentless attack by the Islamist-leftist coalition in recent years, which seeks to bully and intimidate critics of open borders and Sharia law into submission. Once this anti-western coalition realized that screaming "Islamophobia" wasn't enough, they turned to more fascistic measures, such as speech codes.

Robinson's political views are irrelevant to his arrest. Contrary to how the radical Left portrays him, Robinson is not a terrorist. His views are considered controversial but are hardly a matter of national security. More importantly, the simple act for which he was arrested — filming in public — in no way warranted such a tyrannical response.
Meanwhile, according to government reports, British imam and ISIS supporter Anjem Choudary is scheduled to be released from prison in the next few months. Choudary openly pledged allegiance to ISIS and is the leader of the Islamist extremist group al-Muhajiroun.
He was imprisoned and sentenced to five and a half years in jail in 2016 after encouraging Muslims worldwide, including those in Britain, to join ISIS. Authorities believe one of Choudary's followers helped plan the 2017 London Bridge attack, in which an Islamic terrorist used a vehicle to mow down and kill 11 innocent civilians.
Though official government statements warn about the ongoing threat of Islamic extremism and terrorist acts, Choudary is scheduled to walk free by October. So, while Robinson could presumably be sitting behind bars, Britain will have a non-remorseful terrorist walking the streets of London with a smile on his face and a skip in his step.
Is this what over a million British soldiers gave their lives for while defending their Island through two world wars? To die defending their home against tyranny, only to have it choose to implement tyranny against its own people?
The arrest of Tommy Robinson and the coming release of Anjem Choudary are symptoms of a crumbling society — and should serve as a stark warning for all Americans of what can happen when a nation forgets who it is and for what it stands.

Political correctness is not only foolish — it's also dangerous. And we as Americans best do everything we can to destroy it before it destroys us — the way it has our European allies.

  • Instead of arresting rapists, the police, in at least a couple of cases, actually arrested people who had done nothing other than to try to rescue their children from the clutches of rapists.

  • So much concern – legitimately so – about the sacred right of the rapists to a fair trial, including the presumption of innocence and an opportunity to retain the lawyers of their choice – but so much readiness to excuse the denial of the same right to Robinson.

  • These decades of cover-ups by British officials are themselves unspeakable crimes. How many of those who knew, but who did nothing, have faced anything remotely resembling justice? Apparently none.

  • As any viewer of British TV news knows, a "trained professional journalist" in Britain observes all kinds of rules of professional conduct: he calls Muslims "Asians," he describes any critic of Islam, or anyone who attends a rally protesting the unjust incarceration of a critic of Islam, as a member of the "far right," and he identifies far-left smear machines as "anti-racist groups."

The coverage here during the last few days of the Tommy Robinson affair in Britain appears to be having at least a small impact in certain circles in Merrie Olde England. Dispatches have come in from some of the tonier addresses in the UK explaining, in that marvelous tone of condescension which no one from beyond the shores of England can ever quite pull off, that those of us who sympathize with Robinson have got it all wrong; that we simply do not grasp the exquisite nuances of British jurisprudence, specifically the kingdom's laws about the coverage of trials – for if we did understand, we would recognize that Robinson's summary arrest and imprisonment did not represent an outrageous denial of his freedom of speech, his right to due process, and his right to an attorney of his own choosing, but were, in fact, thoroughly appropriate actions intended to ensure the integrity of the trial he was covering. 

Those of us outside the UK who think that British freedom has been compromised and that the British system of law has been cynically exploited for ignoble purposes are, apparently, entirely mistaken; on the contrary, we are instructed, Britain's police are continuing to conduct themselves in a responsible matter, Britain's courts are still models of probity, and Britain's real journalists (not clumsy, activist amateurs like Robinson) persist in carrying out their role with extraordinary professionalism and propriety, obeying to the letter the eminently sensible rules that govern reportage about court cases in the land of Magna Carta.

"It is true," acknowledged one correspondent, "that in previous years the UK police wrongly hesitated to prosecute Muslim grooming gangs. And it was a shocking scandal, which the Daily Mail did much to expose and excoriate. But that has changed."

Hesitated? Changed? Talk about English understatement. For decades – not years – police, social workers, local politicians, and journalists all over Britain knew that thousands of non-Muslim girls throughout the country were being repeatedly raped by Muslim gangs. The perpetrators were not arrested – partly because police and others in authority were apparently terrified of being called racists.

In addition, they might have feared a massive explosion of Muslim outrage. Also, in a country where class still plays a crucial role, most of the victims were from working-class families, and may thus have been seen by at least some officials who cherish Islamic cultural enrichment as the spawn of lowbrows.

Instead of arresting rapists, the police -- in at least a couple of cases -- have actually arrested people who did nothing other than to try to rescue their children from the clutches of rapists.

To be sure, the Daily Mail finally began to break the news about all this, thereby forcing the hands of police departments and courts. But to suggest that the policies that made these atrocities possible have changed – or that anywhere near all of the Muslim rapists are now facing trial or already behind bars – is an absurd and grotesque lie.

These decades of cover-ups by British officials are themselves unspeakable crimes. Yet how many of those who knew, but who did nothing, have faced anything remotely resembling justice? Apparently none. Clearly, all too many Britons who should be furious not only at the grooming gangs, who have committed monstrous acts on a scale that staggers the imagination, but also at the civil servants who looked away, are instead in high dudgeon over Tommy Robinson, one of the few people who have dared publicly to call the brutal, violent abuse of children by its proper name and to react to it in a manner proportional to its villainy.

Robinson did not do anything outside this courthouse that other reporters do not do on a regular basis. The information he supplied, including the names and ages of the defendants, came straight off the BBC website. The critic who expressed such tender concern about "police time" actually argued that Robinson, by reading off all those Muslim names, might have formed unfortunate "preconceptions" in the minds of potential jurors that would make it impossible for them to give future Muslim defendants a fair trial. Is he suggesting that in order for any of these thugs to get tried fairly, the entire British public should be kept in the dark about the reality of Muslim grooming gangs? "Robinson was not just on the street, he was sending a running commentary to the internet," complained one correspondent. "If any other journalist was found doing that, he or she may also have been sent to prison under a gag order until the trial ends."

Does anyone truly believe that some well-known BBC or Sky News talking head would ever have been plucked up from outside the courthouse in Leeds, shoved into a paddywagon, dragged before a judge, and tossed unceremoniously into the clink without so much as being allowed to phone a lawyer? So much concern – legitimately so – about the sacred right of the rapists to a fair trial, including the presumption of innocence and an opportunity to retain the lawyers of their choice – but so much readiness to excuse the denial of the same right to Robinson!

Some British correspondents also expressed concern that reckless rhetoric about the Robinson case might end up causing "an insurrection" in Britain, which "would lead to immense casualties." News flash: there have already been immense casualties. Question for these critics: Are those child rape victims unreal to you? What about the countless UK victims of female genital mutilation, "honor" killings, and other "honor"-related punishments, not to mention various less-than-neighborly activities by Muslim gangs? Yes, there have been casualties, and if Britain keeps on in the direction it is currently going, the number of casualties will only rise. "Demography is destiny," as the saying has it.

One note dismissed the statement by Robert Spencer, quoted by yours truly, that "the darkness of Sharia-compliant totalitarianism" is descending upon Britain. "Someone who utters such a sentence," we are told, "immediately loses the respect of most Britons that I know. In the UK, such lurid rhetoric is seen as characteristic of nutters."
