Masses Count on Tommy Robinson Not British Authorities to Keep Children Safe
No British court can keep human rights activist Tommy Robinson behind bars for long.

Not because prison exposes Tommy to his enemies who can cause him bodily harm, as real as that possibility is, but because Tommy has already won in the most powerful court of them all: the court of public opinion.

Those Tommy’s activism is meant to protect are the most precious of all: innocent children.

.

In rushing to imprison Tommy,  British authorities may have assumed that they had finally found the way to bring to a halt all those who get out to protest Britain’s lax immigration laws.  Their strategy was based on arresting the one man people regard as their top human rights hero, therefore frightening off any others from taking a stand.

This time British authorities seriously misjudged the masses who see Tommy Robinson as a remarkably courageous hero willing to risk his personal freedom for the safety of children exposed to brutal gang rape.

In Facebooking live —outside—the Leeds Crown Court court last Friday,  Tommy Robinson was bringing to public view something authorities would rather they wouldn’t see, the Muslim “grooming” gangs   Britain’s wishy-washy government has been downplaying for decades.

By law everyone, including Muslim groomers,  deserve their day in court.  On Friday, Tommy Robinson was giving the parents of children subject to “grooming”,  theirs.

He put the spotlight on proceedings that had up to now been largely out of public view and was sent to prison because of it.

It is not the fault of Tommy Robinson that people know that United Kingdom authorities are notorious for protecting Muslims who rape Britons and for trying to hide under the rug the heinous crimes of Muslim rape rings.

There can be no doubt that Tommy opened big floodgates before he was thrown into prison.

In Britain, sex crimes against innocent children are not only happening but are on the rise.

“Some government officials and journalists suppress news of the sex crimes out of a perverse sense of political correctness; others because they are afraid of being called racist or Islamophobic. (Matthew Vadum, Front Page Magazine, May 31, 2018)

Crimes against children are not few and far between but have become rampant in Britain.

“From the 1980s to the 2010s, as many as 1,400 Britons, mostly white girls, were raped largely by Muslim men in Rotherham, England. In recent years Muslim rape gangs have been uncovered in Rochdale, Telford, Aylesbury, Banbury, and in many other British communities.” (Vadum)

With statistics like that it is not surprising that many Britons no longer trust their government to handle such grooming cases fairly and openly.

The left-leaning, politically correct mainstream media will continue to portray Robinson as a far-right, loon, stirring the pot from the fringe.

They do this to everybody who dares criticize the destructive policies of the progressive-left.

“It was last Friday, May 25, when Robinson was reporting outside Leeds Crown Court in England when he was taken into custody for his most recent act of unauthorized citizen journalism. A tanning salon owner, Robinson filmed on his smartphone the arrival of accused rapists on trial for acts allegedly committed while being part of a so-called Muslim grooming gang. The broadcast consisted of an hour-long Facebook Live stream that within hours had been viewed more than 250,000 times. (Vadum)

“The arresting officers informed Robinson he was being taken into custody for suspicion of breaching the peace. Taking footage in a public place of people walking into a courthouse is not in itself a breach of the peace even in the United Kingdom.

“But this arrest was for what constituted a second offense under contempt of court laws, and was therefore grounds for Robinson’s probation to be revoked and for a sentence that was previously suspended for the same so-called crime to be carried out. He is now serving a 13-month term in secure custody at Hull Prison.

“Because the filming May 25 was of accused persons in an ongoing criminal trial where a publication ban preventing news from being reported had been imposed, the court that day imposed a separate publication ban specifically on reporting what happened to Robinson. As happens in police states, the court ordered the media not to report on Robinson’s case, ostensibly to avoid “a substantial risk of prejudice to the administration of justice in these proceedings” against the rape suspects.

“As Leeds Live reported on the events of May 25 days after Robinson’s arrest:

Eventually, the 35-year-old was arrested on suspicion of a breach of the peace and was held in the court cells before being taken up to the courtroom to face the trial judge.

“In a rare move, he was arrested, charged and sentenced within five hours. The video footage was played to Judge Geoffrey Marson QC as Robinson sat in the dock.

“Contempt of Court legislation largely applies to media publications - but as Tommy Robinson was broadcasting live on Facebook to the 778,280 people who like his page, and his 848,100 followers - he can be deemed a publisher in his own right.

Judge Geoffrey Marson QC told him: “I respect everyone’s right to free speech. That’s one of the most important rights that we have.

“With those rights come responsibilities. The responsibility to exercise that freedom of speech within the law.

“I am not sure you appreciate the potential consequence of what you have done.”

Judge Marson claimed that Robinson waving a single smartphone around outside the courthouse could somehow have led to a mistrial declaration in the prosecution of the accused rapists, a claim that seems laughable on its face.”

Last Friday’s imprisonment is not the end of Tommy Robinson’s story, but only its beginning.

By imprisoning him authorities may have unwittingly helped Tommy’s cause.

The thousands protesting his imprisonment worldwide will not only continue to protest until Tommy is released, but will continue to protest the danger of Britain’s lax immigration laws long after he’s been set free.

Meanwhile, it’s only a matter of time before authorities set Tommy Robinson free.

Can they afford to look like they imprison any of those brave enough to take a strong stand to keep children safe?

As soon as British authorities find a way to save face, Tommy Robinson will be returned to his wife and three children.

Look for Tommy at the next trial of Muslim child groomers.
