Tommy Robinson
"Persecuted for Defending the Innocent"
The UK once believed in righteousness, justice, and truth.  But no longer.
Now we are ruled by wicked, quisling, traitorous leaders who hate the good and love the evil.

"It's tough enough having predictable enemies, whether they are radical Islamic extremists or far-left Socialists, the Marxist headbangers from UAF. At least with that lot you know who the enemy are. In terms of establishing the EDL as a mainstream protest group however, our biggest enemies were the supposedly impartial British press and our own government and lawmakers. From that day, pretty much to this (with a few honourable exceptions) the media coverage of the UPL/EDL and even my current situation has been at best lazy and ignorant, at worst politically motivated and malicious" [Tommy Robinson, Enemy of the State, p.143].

"Standing among the ordinary, decent people in the crowd [outside the Old Bailey, 23 October 2018] as Tommy Robinson spoke I was struck by how completely at odds their behaviour was with the way they are portrayed in the media, especially at viciously partisan organs like the BBC and The Guardian, but even across much of the right-wing press. These people are constantly being described as 'fascist' or 'far right' or 'extremist'. But I saw and heard no evidence of this whatsoever. They were vocal, yes, but peaceable and friendly. They were angry, yes, but it was controlled anger and intelligently directed. There was, for example, no hatred of Muslims - only of the creed that drives some of them to rape and murder. How weird it is to think that we live in an age so blinkered that the man doing more than anybody to raise awareness of what's going on receives more widespread censure from the Establishment than the actual monsters perpetrating these ugly deeds" [source].

"Taxpayer-funded BBC working alongside a radical far left organisation for Panorama to 'take down Tommy Robinson; blackmailing my former employees to invent stories; Hope Not Hate on set with the BBC, calling the shots and intimidating my ex-employees during interview; BBC caught on camera telling an ex-employee the questions they would ask her in the interview and the answers that she needed to say for it to air (scripted fake interviews); BBC caught on camera suggesting they could edit and clip an argument I had with an ex-employee to portray a totally different angle and [quoting] John Sweeney on camera [saying] he could make it 'a gender, a sexual thing against Tommy Robinson.'  (BBC creating fake #MeToo stories); BBC likening the working class to cannibals in the jungle whose vocabulary is limited to the words F*** Off; BBC journalists giving zero s**** about your hard earned £150 license fee and spending [it] on midweek £220 champagne lunches; Oh, and the BBC face of Panorama being casually racist and homophobic.  Within 24 hours the Establishment has come back at me with all guns blazing..."

That's why they continue to slander him. Of course they won't have him on their show, because they'll be obliterated by Tommy's honesty and facts. They're scared of Tommy, because he's a man who knows what he's talking about [so] they want to discredit him in every way possible; even if that involves spreading and making up lies about him being 'extreme' and 'far right'. Thank God the masses are waking and thank God for Tommy"  /  "They say 'far right', but they have never met anyone who IS actually far right.

"Many people will have watched this and been incensed by Piers Morgan's obviously false and over the top ranting against Tommy. One of the strongest traits in British people is fairness, and they recognise that Morgan's questions were not really questions at all, they were a series of accusations that Tommy was given no time to answer ...

Andrew Neil: BBC Sunday Politics (16 June 2013)

Extract from Enemy of the State, by Tommy Robinson, p.155

"Andrew Neil invited me on his Sunday Politics show ... He ... had picture after picture of EDL supporters with their arms in the air - they were chanting - and what he said was, 'Nazi salute, Nazi salute.'  I just sat there and told him to show me one video of someone doing a Nazi salute. Not a photo, a video. Anyone with their arm in the air could be stitched up like that.

"When I got home I tweeted Andrew Neil pictures of Barack Obama doing a Nazi salute, Katie Perry doing a Nazi salute - even one of him, Andrew Neil doing a Nazi salute, and I asked what he had to say about it? Not much, in truth.

"Some time later he interviewed one of the leaders of the Muslim Council of Britain and in fairness he tore him to pieces. I do think that's something that has changed recently, because a few years ago those characters got a soft ride everywhere they went."

YOUTUBE:  EDL Leader Interviewed by Andrew Neil on Sunday Politics (16Jun13)  (16 June 2013)

Well, I have no words to describe Andrew Neil's disgusting treatment of Tommy Robinson in this interview.  Yet again Tommy Robinson responded to such utter disgraceful and wicked provocation with immense patience, informed explanation, and calm reasonableness.

Viewers' comments regarding Andrew Neil's 'Interview':

"This was a clear cut smearing campaign and I gained nothing from this interview other than an increased loathing for the BBC"  /  "That was a one-sided character assassination and BBC at its worst"  /  "Neil playing to the gallery, taking cheap shots, talking down to a perceived social inferior assuming his unthinking middle class audience will join him in his lazy minded nazi bashing rather than properly engage with the issues raised which are just too hideous to contemplate"  /  "The BBC are fooling no one"  /  "Andrew Neil clearly came to the interview with so much prejudice, he made himself look like a fool in this interview"  /  "How can [AN] be allowed to spout lies and mislead the viewers like that"  /  "Andrew Neil ... out of his depth in this interview with a real person ... grasping at a pre-set agenda"

""[M]ore interested in destroying the reputation of someone than discussing the subject, spent the first minute trying to belittle him over a name - irrelevant what his name is"  /  "Has the BBC in their own perceived wisdom, whilst on air, never thought that maybe asking the name of someone on their birth certificate is inherently dangerous?"

"Why is Tommy being cut off every single time he gives a response?"  /  "There was no intention to give [TR] any chance to explaining anything"  /  "Why bother to invite the guy to the program if you don't want him to answer questions"  /  "Well it speaks volumes when the interviewer doesn't allow the interviewee to speak"  /  "AN hold your head in shame - one sided agenda that has been proven to be so wrong"  /  "AN did not listen to a single thing Tommy stated ... it's clear he had an agenda all made up ready prior to this interview taking place"  /  "Andrew Neil interrupting, twisting words and putting words in TR's mouth he never said"

"He didn't want to listen to what the EDL is fighting against. Why doesn't he address all the violence and intolerance, rapes, and grooming and extreme fascist views and laws of Sharia Law. Did he not see the Islamist demonstrations where they were yelling 'Kill the police' ... I don't think the fool conducting this interview knows anything about Sharia Law"   /  "Upper classers like AN never see what really goes on in deprived areas - which normal people do see - exactly the stuff Tommy speaks of"  /  "The far left are running out of arguments desperately resorting to attacks and labels"

"Good on TR for handling himself so well dealing with such a horrible interviewer"  /  "Mr Robinson is a credit, one of the few people to stand up and be counted against the real fascists of this country which are Muslims, the followers of Islam. Oh and the BBC of course"  /  "Once again [TR] is on trial and once again does a cracking job of defending himself"  /  "TR is one of the only people to stand up to Neil so well"  /  "Handled like a pro, Tommy. Congrats"  /  "What is TR's crime? Loving his people and country too much??"  /  "Shameful. 'No one is more hated than he who speaks the truth' - Plato. Tommy speaks the truth and is hated for it"  /  "TR did a brilliant job of defending his views and exposing the bias against British people by Muslims with the co-operation of the police"  /  "Well done Tommy for staying cool"  /  "Tommy spoke brilliantly there"  /  "Incredible patience from Tommy Robinson" 

"This is English snobbery at its worst"  /  "Andrew Neil was absolutely appalling"  /  "I hope AN is pleased with his 3 pieces of silver that he was bought with"  /  "I think Andrew Neil would be ashamed when he rewatches this interview nowadays"


Tom Costello: C4 Proud and Prejudiced  (27 Feb 2012)

Extract from Enemy of the State, by Tommy Robinson, pp.148-154

"I took Tom Costello basically into my family for more than a year, let him become a part of my life while he filmed and produced a Channel 4 documentary which I thought was meant to be about what was happening in Luton.  When it emerged it was titled Proud and Prejudiced ... He'd spend a day or two with us every couple of weeks and we'd be on the phone regularly ... I wanted him to see a 360-degree picture of life in Luton so I rang up Bingo, a Pakistani Muslim who is involved heavily in their gang stuff ... So [Tom and I] got into the car with these Muslim hard cases and we were laughing and joking with them for about an hour, having a crack about the EDL.  Tom sat watching and listening to it all, and when we got out of the car he simply couldn't believe what he'd seen and heard.  That Tommy was mates with these Muslim lads ... but that we were always going to differ on our opinion of Islam ...

"All the way through the production of that documentary, [Tom] told me there would be no voice over, that it was literally going to be compiled from the real-life footage they had gathered.  When it came to editing it, he called and said that I came across as 'too good', whatever that meant ... Tom said the documentary was about Luton and its problems, but it was nothing of the sort, it was this fabricated conflict featuring me and Sayful Islam as opposite sides of this prejudiced spectrum - Proud and Prejudiced ...

"Through friends of friends I got to see it before it aired.  I phoned Tom Costello about a scene where I was walking through town at 1am ... I looked like a frog.  And I was joking, saying 'ribbit, ribbit.' ... But when I saw the documentary they'd inserted subtitles suggesting I was saying 'Breivik' ... It was the only thing in the whole programme they put a subtitle on.  [He also said] that leaving out the part about burning poppies was nothing to do with him, blah blah blah ...

"[T]here was a talk at the British Film Institute in London about Proud and Prejudiced, fronted by Costello ... I sat watching this bloke acting like he'd been under cover in the EDL for two years ... Then it came to the Q&As and [my friend] Benji put his hand up.  He asked 'Is Tommy Robinson a racist?'  Costello paused then replied, 'Yes, clearly he is a racist' ... what I wanted to know was why he never said that almost all of Tommy Robinson's mates are sons of immigrants, and that everywhere he goes, black men shake his hand?  Why couldn't he say that actually Tommy Robinson has got lots of Muslim friends?  He didn't have any answer. ... My family members had told me not to trust him because he was a journalist.  But I did trust him.  And I ended up looking like ... for doing so."


Jeremy Paxman: BBC Newsnight (1st Feb 2011)

Extract from Enemy of the State, by Tommy Robinson, pp.155-156

"I was incredibly nervous when I went on Newsnight with Jeremy Paxman. It was following a bunch of UAF tweets and they were frothing with excitement at the prospect of Tommy Robinson being destroyed by attack-dog Paxo. Sadly for them it went alright and the next day the Daily Mail said, 'The articulate young leader of the English Defence League made Jeremy Paxman look average.' ...

"When we went into the green room ... Paxman came in for a chat and told me not to be nervous - because this was my first big thing. He was really nice. At least he was until we went on air. At one point I thought he was trying to belittle me, so I asked if he knew anyone addicted to heroin that had been peddled to them by Muslim gangs? Did he know anyone who'd been murdered by Muslim gangs? Any young girls, or family relatives, who had been sexually abused or raped by Muslim gangs? I told him, on every point - you don't and I do. I told him that I didn't expect him to 'get it', but I did expect him to listen.

"And at that he sat back. And afterwards, as soon as we went off air, he said, 'Do you know what, when you said that' - and everyone in the studio was there - he said, 'I can't begin to think about it. Neither can any of us.'  He was very fair. And what I took most satisfaction from was that all the left wing lunatics were absolutely raging, because they'd thought I was going to fail miserably."

Viewers' comments since this 2011 interview:

"This interview was in 2011 prior to the Rotherham report being published and prior to the revelations about various BBC presenters from the 1970s & 80s sexually abusing children. The passage of time has proven Tommy Robinson right about Islam in the UK and proven the BBC to be an organization that harbours and protects paedophiles"  /  "Tell Paxman to go live in Luton or Bradford for 6 months then he will probably change his mind"  /  "Hmmm, a rich white guy living in a gated estate doesn't see any problem? Imagine that"  /  "Paxman must look back at this interview and his questioning and be totally embarrassed by what he now knows to be true and was totally isolated from in his closeted middle class world"

"Tommy really holds his own here in the face of a completely far removed toff like Paxman who has zero understanding of Tommy's background"  /  "Well Jeremy, how many of your words are you eating now? You complete liberal muppet. Tommy was 100% spot on!"  /  "Once again, a BBC clone attacks the symptom and completely ignores the cause"  /  "[Whether] you agree with Tommy or not, as a working class bloke from nowhere he does very well to articulate his point on Newsnight better than most politicians vs Paxman"  /  "Paxman talking to him like he's a child yet 6 years on just look what's happened within Europe and the UK"

"Tommy hits the nail constantly on the head here, but Paxman must adhere to the BBC's politically correct agenda. Pathetic"  /  "Paxman is so patronising trying to make himself look so smart. 7 years later Tommy has been proven right"  /  "This kid has just run rings around this BBC presenter"  /  "History has proven Paxman wrong and Tommy right. Paxman's 'what-about the whites' was irrelevant"  /  "Just because [Tommy] doesn't speak with an Oxford English language he is shouted down. Who is the real bigot here?"  /  "Paxman is an intelligent man, yet he displays a wilful ignorance"  /  "When did the media stop reporting and start preaching?"

"The original 'so what you're saying' interview a la Newman/Peterson"  /  "Paxman's 'are you seriously suggesting' in 2011 became Cathy Newman's 'so you're saying' in 2018. The line of questioning has always followed the narrative that needs to be pushed and is wilfully ignorant of the issues Tommy is still talking about today"  /  "Robinson is excellent and Paxman sounds like an idiot in this interview"  /  "It's a shame to see such a well-regarded journalist make such a fool of himself"  /  "The arrogance of accent: Paxman shows himself to consider himself to be superior to Robinson when he is, in truth, an inferior man on every level. Time has proven Robinson right, how many English girls have been raped across England since this warning from Tommy in 2011 that Paxman, the police, and the government immediately disregarded as false?"

"Makes me sick to see how the private schooled upper middle classes in the BBC/Westminster bubble patronise and ignore the concerns of the working class. Because they don't have to experience the results of their liberal policies they don't care. White working class girls? Easy Meat aren't they? Housing issues? Not an issue in Islington if you earn £500,000 pa. NHS waiting lists, school places? Not if you go private. Hassled in the street? Not where they shop or live ... we'll lock them up for 13 months that will shut them up"  /  "Paxman made a complete fool of himself ... asking stupid questions with the intention of belittling and humiliating. Today you should choke on your words because Tommy Robinson is completely exonerated with his truthful statements ... the whole of Britain is now aware of the danger. The bleeding hearts are still spewing lies but the lies are not sticking"

Tommy's questions to Jeremy Paxman:

"Tommy recognised Jeremy's scepticism about gangs in Luton as being the understandable result of Jeremy's lack of direct experience with any of the problems ... Tommy asked Jeremy whether he knew anyone: (1) Addicted to heroin that has been peddled to them by Muslim gangs? (2) Anyone who'd been murdered by Muslim gangs? (3) Any young girls or family relatives who had been sexually abused or raped by Muslim gangs?  Like most of us, Jeremy didn't. But Tommy, of course, can answer 'yes' to all three of those questions. I believe his individual, first-hand knowledge and experience in these matters to be unique" [source].


The Guardian Newspaper

Extract from Enemy of the State, by Tommy Robinson, pp.145-146

"I didn't know about right wing and left wing newspapers.  Really.  I had no idea.  I didn't know about the Guardian basically being the PR-wing of the Communist Party.  I didn't have any interest in it.  I mention the Guardian because I was asked by them first, when it all started, to go and have a meeting to talk.  It was one of the very first interviews I did, and I brought my mates Isaac - he's Little Craigy who got his teeth knocked out by the mounted police officer - Benji and Dorsett. ... I went to the meeting at a time when no one yet really knew who I was.  So I turned up with my three pals - and they were three black lads.  Now you couldn't miss these boys, especially Dorsett, who's about 6ft 5ins.  He's younger than me, but growing up in Luton he was probably one of the handiest blokes around town.

"I didn't know who or what the Guardian was about, so I was talking about everything that was going on in Luton, just blabbing it all out, all the social problems, all the street radicalisation, everything - the reasons why we were doing what we were doing. And then the newspaper article came out and I was looking at it, thinking, '... what's this geezer on about?'  And he basically, again, called me, called us, racists.  He completely did not mention the fact that I'd turned up with three black men who were clearly my close friends.  These blokes weren't my minders, they were my mates.

"I just couldn't get it.  I couldn't understand it because they were blindly lying.  And that was my first experience of the Guardian, my first experience of the national press.  Then when I started speaking to other people, telling them about how I'd been stitched up, they couldn't believe it - not the Guardian!  You didn't talk to the Guardian!  I didn't know what they meant.  I couldn't understand how there could be a bona fide, highly regarded national newspaper dedicated to smearing people, to smearing anyone who had an opinion that didn't match theirs.  Talk about being wet behind the ears!"

MSM General Fake News re: Tommy Robinson

Extract from Enemy of the State, by Tommy Robinson, pp.143-145,147

"It's tough enough having predictable enemies, whether they are radical Islamic extremists or far-left Socialists, the Marxist headbangers from UAF.  At least with that lot you know who the enemy are.  In terms of establishing the EDL as a mainstream protest group however, our biggest enemies were the supposedly impartial British press and our own government and lawmakers.  From that day, pretty much to this (with a few honourable exceptions) the media coverage of the UPL/EDL and even my current situation has been at best lazy and ignorant, at worst politically motivated and malicious ...

"I thought it was so, so clear what we were about - and then when I picked up my local newspaper, the Luton News, straight from the get-go, it called us all far right extremists.  And I thought, 'What ... are these people on about?'  I just couldn't get it.  All we wanted to do on that first demo was walk through town, to hold a minute's silence.  That's all we tried to do - show that most ordinary Luton people supported our troops, as opposed to wanting them to burn in hell ... I remember wondering what it was all about, all this mud-slinging at us, this stereotyping.  I thought maybe they were just mistaken, that we'd been... I don't know, unlucky.  That our message just hadn't been sophisticated enough.  But no, I don't think we could have done anything to affect the prejudice.  They were just lazy, the vast majority of the media - and not very clever either. ...

"I was having to grow up fast in terms of understanding the media agenda, from my hometown paper to the national press ... if you watch the UPL demo online, you hear everyone shouting, 'We are Luton town.'  Everyone was from Luton.  That's what it was about.  But the newspaper, the politicians, they all made statements saying that outsiders came into Luton to stir up trouble.  There were no outsiders.  Me and my pals were running it, we knew who was there. And afterwards we sat round asking each other, 'What do they mean outsiders? We're all from Luton.'"

Doxing Tommy Robinson - What's In A Name?  (08 February 2019)

"Every time Tommy Robinson hits the news, we're told that it isn't his real name. His real name is Stephen Yaxley Lennon. Why do they keep telling us? ... like a barrister producing evidence in court, the press make a show of producing the 'real' name Steven Yaxley Lennon, as if using a pseudonym proves he's a danger to society. A fake name is not a sign of dishonesty or evil intent ... Marilyn Monroe, Freddy Mercury, George Elliot..."

EMcD:  Likewise, does the MSM/printed press remind us of the real names of the following persons every time - indeed, ANY time - they refer to them or speak with them or write about them?:  Elton John, Cliff Richard, Sting, Michael Caine, Kirk Douglas, Tony Curtis, Muhammad Ali... 

YOUTUBE:  The Ways in Which the Media Lie and Deceive You: Tommy Robinson Case Study  (26 October 2018)

Viewers' comments:  "After knowing the reality of the suffering of these vulnerable girls and then to attack the man who has done more than anybody to highlight the issue is truly low"  /  "Andrew Gilligan is an interesting kettle of fish - state of the art work in Tower Hamlets, but he takes it as read TR is far right without laying out the groundwork as to why"  /  "They don't like the fact that people give him money so he can be better equipped to fight"  /  "To understand how corrupt the MSM really is, go back to the 1970s when PM Heath conveyed secret meetings held in the Connaught Hotel London attended by [the] MSM including BBC, Times, Express, Mail, etc"

Why You Can't Trust the MSM Hit Piece by Andrew Gilligan in The Times About Tommy Robinson  (25 October 2018)

"Over the weekend The Times (Sunday Times) ran yet another boring hit piece against Tommy Robinson (£) ... this one was written by Andrew Gilligan, a journalist who has done some valuable work exposing the political Islamic infiltration and take over of various local authorities particularly Tower Hamlets ... Here's the centrepiece of Andrew Gilligan's piece. A pull quote where Tommy said the word 'Hitler' - clutch your pearls now if you have them ... to Andrew Gilligan, you're better than this..."

Two Tommy Robinsons  (14 October 2018)

"There are two Tommy Robinsons. There is the imaginary one that haunts the nightmares of our elites. This Tommy is a racist, a thug, and above all an 'Islamophobe'. This Tommy spends his every waking hour spreading hatred and disunity in modern, diverse Britain. This is clearly the opinion of every MSM journalist ... The Left loves to despise the Mail, the Express and the Telegraph, but these 'Tory rags' denounce Tommy Robinson with every bit as much enthusiasm as the Guardian and the Mirror..."


The Real Tommy Robinson

The following is an extract from The Real Tommy Robinson

"It strikes me that people who have spent time in discussion with Tommy Robinson seem to like, understand and largely approve of him. It is those who don't know him, and often possess little balanced, factual information about him, who appear far more ready to accept and repeat the distortions and calumnies relentlessly peddled by our disgraceful media and elsewhere ... the journalist James Delingpole who recorded two podcasts with Tommy wrote:

'In the flesh, he's very different from the 'far right' thug you see portrayed in the mainstream media. He's easy, friendly, intelligent company; he's apparently devoid of racist sentiment; and he's better informed on the Qur'an and the Hadith than some Muslims, and probably as well informed on Muslim extremism as the police and the intelligence services.'

"Raheem Kassam ... remarked in an interview that he originally believed the 'fake news' about Tommy. That was before, by arrangement, he met him, talked with him, and then conducted a lengthy interview with him. That meeting and subsequent discussions changed Raheem's opinion of Tommy dramatically ... He described Tommy's demeanour at the interview:

'He was well spoken. He was softly spoken. And it showed, that he actually cared about the issues. He didn't care whether someone was black, white, Muslim, Christian or whatever. He cared that there were thousands of young girls all around the United Kingdom being systematically groomed and raped.'

"It's noteworthy that most of [Tommy's] significant problems with the law have occurred after 2009; after he formed the EDL, and after he became 'an enemy of the state'. For many years now Tommy has risked his freedom, his life, and indeed the well-being of the people he loves, to fight bravely against some of the great outrages staining this country ... When so many have turned a blind eye, he has fought constantly to publicise and save children from rape gangs and drugs gangs; to defend free speech; to highlight and battle the political manipulation of our police forces and judicial system; to preserve our historic culture and heritage; to protect our homecoming soldiers from abuse; and to counter the growing Islamification of our nation."


Patriots, Traitors, Invaders

Poem in the comments section here

"Here's a tale of Quisling traitors, sold their country to invaders.
The first was shot in forty-five, But many more are still alive.
When was there a referendum, 'Ere our traitors thought to send 'em?
Rivers of blood would be the cost, Enoch was right, now Britain's lost.
Bombs and bullets, acid and knives, Vans on pavements destroying lives.
Showing rape gangs now forbidden, Poor old Tommy he's imprisoned,
While to jihadis flats are given, And ISIS killers all forgiven.

"Hitler's Nazis could not manage, What our Quislings done in damage!
If Churchill were around today, I'm confident that he would say:
'In older and more modern time, Treason must be capital crime,
Patriots must be supported, And invaders all deported,
Till our girls walk unmolested, After British metal's* tested.'
Will saving Blighty come too late, Before the Saxon learns to hate?
If saving's coming, it can't wait, Or Islam will be Britain's fate.

* Please see the author's footnote re metal/mettle.




"The British state already tells you what you can and can't say.
It informs you who must be respected and who hated. It lets you know, in no uncertain terms, how you are to address people.
It wags its finger at you if you step ever so slightly from a straight line it has painted ahead of you"

"The despicable soviet hellhole once renowned for its creation of the Common Law is setting up the martyrdom of Tommy Robinson ...
Justice has taken her scales and fled the blighted land that he chose to stand and defend"

"No man escapes when freedom fails / The best of men rot in filthy jails,
And those who cry appease appease / Are hung by those they try to please"
[quoted in comments at source].

"If it had not been the LORD who was on our side, when men rose up against us:
Then they had swallowed us up quick ... Then the waters had overwhelmed us ...
Blessed be the LORD, who hath not given us as a prey to their teeth.
Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers:
the snare is broken, and we are escaped.
Our help is in the name of the LORD"

(Psalm 124)
