On Friday, May 25th, British anti-Muslim agitator Tommy Robinson was arrested outside Leeds Crown Court as he live-streamed accused members of a Muslim gang of child rapists who were entering the building for sentencing. After more than an hour, he was arrested.

He was then convicted of contempt of court. There were broad restrictions on reporting the trial until its conclusion. Violating this order could be used by the defendants’ lawyers to argue for a mistrial.

Yes, Robinson’s actions actually made it more likely the defendants would go free.

Robinson cannot, moreover, plead ignorance of the law, because last year he was arrested for the same offense at a gang-rape trial in Canterbury. In that case, his sentence was suspended under condition that he not reoffend for another 18 months. Because he violated the conditions of his suspended sentence, he was ordered to spend 13 months in jail. The judge also ordered that the case not be discussed in the press — probably because of the ongoing nature of the proceedings. Apparently, a new batch of defendants will be tried starting in September.

The fact that Robinson’s safety in jail is threatened by large numbers of non-white and Muslim prisoners is unfortunate. But that is not an argument against jailing him, since that would basically give him carte blanche to break the law with impunity. He should, however, receive special protection in jail.

There is understandably a great deal of distrust of the British government for their role in covering up the mass rape of white children by Muslim gangs. There is, furthermore, good reason to distrust the government for suppressing dissenting opinions on topics connected to race and immigration. So there has been an outcry in defense of Robinson, accusing the government of suppressing freedom of speech and covering up a scandal.

But we need to think this through.

No legal system is perfect. But outlawing contempt of court is not an illegitimate, Orwellian form of repression. Its purpose is to secure due process, on the assumption that this leads to justice. Again, by interfering in the court proceedings, Robinson actually made it less likely that the criminals will be punished. But he went to the courthouse anyway.

His motive is unclear. Given that he had already been arrested for the same offense, he clearly knew what he was doing. Thus he must have judged this publicity stunt worth the risk of setting a gang of child rapists free. That’s a breathtakingly selfish decision. I don’t see any way of avoiding the conclusion that Tommy Robinson is morally reckless and probably a bit stupid.

Tommy Robinson could have gone anywhere in the UK on Friday, May 25th to raise awareness of Muslim child rape gangs. But he chose to come to the one place where his presence might actually impede justice for the victims, not promote it. Mull that over a minute. It’s a rather amazing lapse of judgment.

Nationalists, therefore, should not be rushing to Tommy Robinson’s defense.

Loyalty to our team is admirable. But our first loyalty should be to our cause. And if people bring our cause into disrepute, we need to call them on it. Tommy Robinson has harmed the cause of justice for the victims of child rapists. He has made it harder, not easier, for these rape gangs to be successfully prosecuted.

White advocates have the whole system against us. Our only allies are truth and justice. Our greatest source of credibility is speaking the truth and defending justice.

But truth and justice are not on Tommy Robinson’s side. I hope he receives safe custody and the due process he would so casually deny others. But white advocates around the world need to guard our credibility, not squander it in what is essentially a white chimp-out based on the false premise that Tommy Robinson is a martyr for freedom of speech and the pursuit of justice for the victims of Muslim pedophile gangs. Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown were not innocent children martyred by racists. They were victims of their own poor judgment and reckless behavior. The same is true of Tommy Robinson.

The UK’s globalist, multiculturalist establishment is clearly resorting to totalitarian measures to retain its grip on power in the face of the horrific consequences of non-white immigration and the inevitable rise of white populism and nationalism. There are plenty of genuine cases in which the political establishment and press are covering up non-white crimes against whites. There are plenty of genuine cases of Orwellian censorship, surveillance, and persecution of pro-white dissidents in the UK. We should save our protests for real victims, not Tommy Robinson.

    (((Tommy Robinson))) is a net negative for whites. He does nothing to solve (((real problems))) but he does draw attention away from them. Further, by making it seem like there is a legitimate opposition while there isn’t, he prevents or at least hinders the formation of one. Anyone who continuesly punches right, shills for Israel and its spawn and doesn’t talk about white genocide must not be supported by whites in any capacity.

      This article by a so-called “conservative” is outrageous. So Tommy was ordered to not report honestly on the trial of Muslims grooming gangs, why? The logic of this article would be the same as if the government said, that for no reason at all, they were going to take your home and business, leaving you homeless and it’s illegal for you to speak out about it. You did speak out, were arrested and thrown in a prison full of hostile foreigners that hate you, but hey, according to the writer of this article you knew the law, didn’t you? The bottom line is simply this: does the UK want to be a free and open society in which the rights of the people including the right to free speech is respected, or does it want to devolve into some type of totalitarian dystopia that is totally unrecognizable from just a few years ago. You still get to choose, for now.

    You have a false premise in your whole context: the premise that in this occupied country it is better to convict these rapists.

    Our goal is not the useless revenge, nor to make UK relatively safer, nor to prevent these particular things from happening, but to regain the control of the state by destroying the current system and then preventing categorically all foreigners… until then we have to have MORE of chaos and suffering, not less.

    Whatever destroys the system and makes whites’ (and immigrants’) lives unbearable is better than deluding ourselves by imagining that these countries are still somehow ours or salvageable to our purposes. There is no justice in legal affairs for justice have for a long time been exclusively illegal. And we should not look forward to prolonging this misery with high prison population (a time bomb) but instead pressure and escalate the situation as much as possible.

    TR fights and the only his sin is he does not hate Jews. You and your cowardly crowd are afraid to confront those who really harass whites – blacks, muslims, latinos, leftists because they will respond violently and hurt you. Thus, you chose to bash timid meek Jews who just want to be left alone and make this world better place.

      “…Thus, you chose to bash timid meek Jews who just want to be left alone and make this world better place…”

      Don’t you see the contradiction ? On the one hand the “timid meek” Jews want to be left alone, but on the other hand they want to “make this world a better place”.
      That is your notorious motive of tikkun olam (“repairing the world”), which is based not in your “meekness” but in your arrogance. And your “repairing the world” is always destructive : communism, cultural Marxism, multiculturalism etc. , etc. . Just be genuinely “meek” and stop trying to “repair” our world.

    “There are plenty of genuine cases of Orwellian censorship, surveillance, and persecution of pro-white dissidents in the UK. We should save our protests for real victims, not Tommy Robinson.”

    If the articles about the Judge in this case are true, that the Judge acknowledged that Tommy Robinson will “most likely be killed in prison” by foreigners, then my question is this.

    How can you say that we need to find “real victims” when the real possibility of murder is the ultimate form of victimization? Are you saying that someone like yourself with an unblemished record that might get censored is a bigger victim then a potential murder?

    At a time like this when you face what is pretty much a death penalty, you need ALL the support you can get. Not be thrown by the way side in this manner.

        Tommy Robinson is not Jewish.
        He is of English descent and has displayed strong ties and leanings towards Ulster Unionists and the Orange Order in Northern Ireland.
        He has however, found Jewish allies such as Ezra Levant, and many other friends of Israel in the process of his actions. And as we know, certain Jewish factions live to create division amongst Christians, everywhere.

            Tommy Robinson is rabidly pro-Zionist but he’s not Jewish.

            The accusation that he is all seems to centre around one Tweet, the famous ‘I’m Jewish, mate’ one. Which sounds like an admission unless you know the context.

            Someone on Twitter asked what the ‘racist Tommy Robinson’ was doing at a Millwall vs. Tottenham football match. Tottenham are a London club traditionally owned and supported by Jews. Their fans call themselves ‘the Yids’. So Robinson replied, jokingly, ‘I’m Jewish, mate’.

            So it’s not an admission of his Jewishness, it’s just a bit of British football humour.

            Nobody’s disputing he’s ridiculosuly pro-Israel and a Jewish shill but that doesn’t make him Jewish because he isn’t.

            There’s enough to condemn him without promoting known lies. It makes us look bad. Like you said, the only thing we have left is our integrity.

            The football context is important because people who don’t understand British football culture think he’s Jewish based on this Tweet.

            Robinson’s club isn’t the Jewish one, Tottenham. He was just going to watch a football match. Robinson himself supports Luton Town, his local club.

        I remember Tommy Robinson stating this, and it was clearly in jest. He was getting sick of Neo-Nazi’s calling him an agent of Mossad and what not. You immediately assume he was lying. I think that goes for most of the arguments you and Yorkshire have made in these article. Poorly researched, driven by incorrect assumptions and, deeply immoral.

        Here’s Lauren Southern interviewing George, one of Tommy Robinson’s team members, refuting everything you have claimed.

He may not be fully aware of the (((tribe))) and how it is complicit in the Third World invasion of England and Europe. But he has experienced at first hand the threat of islamists and he is responding to that. He’s stand-up guy. That’s why his petition on Change.org is now over 500,000. Anybody else around here have that kind of charisma……? I’m disappointed by your position Greg. Makes you look small.

    I want to express my gratitude to Greg for bringing out the inner dimension of the Tommy Robinson affair. The previous article helped me to orient myself better about his (Tommy’s) position as a public figure. I find that with my full schedule of reading I do not have the time to devote to an in-depth analysis of a figure like Robinson. And the analysis I received here has been helpful in understanding Robinson as a ‘lite’ figure and also to be able to distinguish better how and why his position is, as they say, *cucked*.

    A couple of observations nonetheless. Many, many average people will without doubt think and feel as Robinson does. And it must be seen as a first step in a politicization process. And given that there is a cultural war going on, a war of ideas and a war directed to influencing perspectives and opinions, it is imperative to see Tommy Robinson as he is. For that reason the analysis I have gotten here — which I likely would not have gotten for lack of time (and interest) —- is valuable and appreciated.

    I got the impression that Richard Spencer’s personality problems were the source of his road to irrelevancy. As much as I appreciated his activism in the early days (his interviews of Bowden are what I remember), he seems to have become a figure I cannot much *support* and then there is the issue about ‘having done more harm than good’. A case could be made (though I still appreciate him).

    It is quite possible that Robinson will burn brightly . . . and then drift toward irrelevancy. Or worse discredit the Identitarian Right. One has to be aware, in my opinion, that everything that is said and done is observed by intelligence agencies and those who, through subtle means, attempt to influence and direct a movement that threatens established systems. When the bickering and in-fighting begins I am always inclined to wonder if this is expolited. This is exactly what these agencies do. They are expert at it. They will seek to drive people out of the *extremes* (as they describe it) and to the *center* . . . and then work to coopt that center and channel it to their purposes.

    I am still of the opinion that the Tommy Robinson Affair, and the phenomenon, is an opportunity to communicate with the middle-of-the-road generality. But I must say that gaining an accurate perspective on Robinson himself is a part of *seeing clearly* in our present. I do think that Greg’s perspective therefor — put up against certain opposition — has proven itself useful. In my case anyway.

      I don’t believe it was Robinson’s intention to interfere with the path of justice, however let’s say he might have made a well-intentioned mistake, or felt driven into that course of action.

      I’m not sure I like the idea that we abandon activists who share ground with us just because they make a mistake, especially if it was made for reasons they felt were just at the time. Unless those mistakes are appalling, intolerable and obviously damaging to all of us. That feels unwarranted, unnecessary – especially when there are so few public activists. When they are criticized from the Right, it can feel like we’re looking for flaws in them, to pull them down just ‘because’, or they don’t quite fit our tastes somehow, even if that criticism is intended for the good of the movement.

      Then I think of powerful organizations within the Jewish community who will get behind the likes of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, Johnathon Pollard and Leo Frank, to bend justice and the narrative of history for one of their own, for no other reason for Jewish power to be publicly perceived to dominate ours.

      His efforts in this case would have been better used elsewhere, but from what I’ve seen Robinson is capable of presenting at least some very powerful truths, and unless demonstrated otherwise, has shown considerable bravery. Along with any criticism about this specific action, I hope that can be welcomed and applauded.

    Stephen Yaxley-Lennon is a man who is reactionary in the purest sense. He is a regular British kid who saw his town go to shit on account of Muslim immigrants and his entire adult life has been him lashing out at that phenomenon. He is not a soul searcher, he does not look at the big picture. And that’s what makes him important, as this is the mindset of the vast majority of the people.

    Stephen is at once incredibly proud to be British and wants the Mohammedans off his isles, but is still deathly afraid of being labeled a racist. This is the only reason he is seen sucking up to the Jews so much, it’s a way for him to shout “NUH-UH!” at the ever-baiting accusers of racism. His philo-semitism could be seen as a moral armor he tries to deck himself out with, to escape stigma, and naturally the Jews are all to eager to whisper in his ear and take him in, shaping his world view, seeing him as merely an asset. Stephen is one of us, he just doesn’t know it yet, and there’s people who would like to steer him and other alt-lighters like him away from a path of truth.

    But his character as an Englishman trumps their attempts to sway his mind. Time and time again, shortly after each attempt to moderate himself, he gets back into trouble, he goes out, and kicks against the pricks of the establishment. Stephen is simply too simple to be ideologically persuaded to be a good goy. He is not a pseudo-intellectual, he isn’t looking to have his head enlightened by political theory – he just wants the Muslim bastards out, but without the ability to actually say it lest he’s put away for good! He wants them out and the system that enables them too. If only he, and most of the people like him, knew who this enabling system was created by.

    I see no malice in Stephen’s actions, nor stupidity; I see instinct, barely curtailed by the leash of his handlers. Ultimately, this event is a huge boon to our cause, and to deny Stephen any support now would be to further isolate ourselves from the broader cultural fight. You can either get out there and fight it and support the fighters, or you can stay indoors and wax poetic about Hindu esotericism until the walls come caving in. This goes for Paul Nehlen as well; better to stick to the people out there who you agree with for 90% rather than break with them over the 10% of them you dislike. If you’re waiting for an ideal situation and the ideal leader, let me tell you, you’ll be waiting until the Kali Yuga.

    To be intelligent in who you support is not sitting on the fence and denouncing everyone who isn’t ideal; what’s smart is to support the ones who help your side of the cultural struggle in the long run. It doesn’t matter if the rapists get out or not – all the better that they get out! Everyone knows they’re guilty and them being released back into the public will only make them angrier. We need anger, tremendous anger, in Europe right now, to nudge us out of our drugged-up stupid. We need all the anger we can get our hands on, and if these child rapists go free, it’ll be all the more wood for the fire.

      If Tommy is going to do the time (or worse), let’s not do him the injustice of denying the significance of his sacrifice. And let’s not deny ourselves the significance either. To do so would to be penny wise and pound foolish.

      Yes, support those who agree with you mostly, and who will bring more normies into our sphere of thought. That was also the topic of Gregs speech at Scandza 2018, not to purity spiral, and in a resent youtube interview with this australian jew I dont remeber the name of, to not cut ourselves of from the alt light. Robinson was arrested for breach of the peace, the english kangaroo court make up their story as they go along, thats what they did all along the grooming scandals. Sitting idly and trusting the system to deal with these things is what enabled the grooming, good on him for getting up and getting loud. Seeing somebody like him being abandoned by our movement, out of respect for the english legal systems supposed integrity is troublesome to me. Are there ulterior motives? Is it not purity spiralling? The victims will in no way get justice in the courts, the courts are not equipped to engage in the proper sense, as it is an ethnic conflict, as it is warcrimes. The victims will recieve justice when all marauders are going home, so these cases serve better as ammunition for the greater battle for Britain, than seen as individual cases with some economic handouts to the victims and a slap on the wrist for the muslims.

        I don’t think you are wrapping your head around the most horrifying thing here: Robinson could have done a lot of things in a lot of places to raise awareness of rape gangs on May 25. Instead, he showed up at the one place where his presence could interfere with justice.

        Instead, you are simply switching to a default cynicism about the whole British system, combined with Tommy dindunuffin. You have to believe that there is no justice in the British system, because you are confronted with something that completely refutes these dogmas: the system was prosecuting, and Yaxley-Lennon was harming not helping the cause.

        Tommy Robinson behaved like a reckless retard, and his followers are behaving like retards rather than admitting the truth. It really is a white chimpout. It is not a good look for our movement, and it is going to keep us smaller and more marginal in the long run.

    Arguing from strict Socratic principles, that Greg Johnson is correct to retiterate, Tommy Robinson’s actions, however well intentioned, were objectively wrong:

    […] those who defend authority against rebellion must not themselves rebel
    Silmarillion

    Having said that, what sticks in the craw for us (the real British –and Irish — of the Isles), sick and tired of the creeping erosion of our liberty, is the D notice slapped on reporting of the incident. Coverage in major mainstream outlets had to be deleted!. Now that is genuinely Orwellian.

    The deformation and destruction of traditional British mores in the name of tolerance, community relations, and the latest Fury to appear, anti-hate (oh irony!) is a topic I would like to see written up here on Counter-Currents. It is a sad yet salutory story.

    What I find interesting in this video presentation is that the *idea* here is one that comes out of the body of the people, if I can put it this way. This is the sort of sentiment that is growing among people who feel affinity with Tommy Robinson. I do not think that they are from the so-called intellectual class. But they are the people who bring motive power, will and energy to a social movement. Intellectuals and abstract thinkers may bring out *guiding ideas* but it is people and their lived sentiments that bring the ideas into manifestation. I think this corresponds to something Bowden said in Western Civilization Bites Back : motivating ideas rise out of a deeper level of Self.

    I see Greg’s point but I think we all have to go into bat for TR at this point in time. He has been hammered from pillar to post by the system in England already in a totally vexatious manner.

    TR is Jewish but I don’t think he’s a Zionist. He’s a Luton supporter FFS! Hardly a Jew in possession of disproportionate power. I know English Jews who aren’t overly clever and are effectively normies who are loyal to Judaism out of simple-minded duty.

    In this case, the system was doing the right thing and Robinson was doing the wrong thing.

    He is either really stupid, or something more sinister.

    What a load of counter signalling bullshit.

    Does Greg Johnson support Tommy Robinson being secretly trailed (his solicitor was told he was being moved to another facility, not a court trial) and a D-Notice being made making it (technically) illegal to report his 13 month jail sentence?

    Likewise Greg, if you are aware of the social media content of Tommy’s film crew and other users who they communicate with (CR, LB) you will find they are ‘aware’ and ‘wise’ to race and (((them))).

    On Zionism Tommy Robinson is loathed by nearly all British Jewish communal organisations and in a past tweet he has referred to the Board of Deputies of British Jews as a “far left” group after they attacked him.

    In 2018 Tommy is perfectly ok promoting Generation Identity which is a implicitly Pro-White group so just because he said XYZ in 2009 separating himself from the BNP has no relevance to 2018, unless you want to bicker about stuff said nearly a decade ago rather than the vastly changed current circumstances.

    This case is ‘waking’ a lot of people up and de-legitimising the Tory party and Greg wants to put it back into a box, just like establishment media personalities are attempting to do.

      Leaving aside the travesty of Tommy Robinson’s faux-trial and 13 month sentence, and the concurrent news blackout of his present situation, Robinson realized both in Canterbury and in Leeds that whatever the limitation on reporting about these grooming gangs, the outcome of these trials would result in a slap on the wrist for those convicted. Robinson’s acts were ones of civil disobedience, knowing quite well what the current attitude and previous actions of British police, courts, and government have been. It’s an attitude in a sense of “screw it, I have to bring knowledge of these cases to the fore.” So Robinson, a working class man, not a stilted academic, isn’t worried about the intricacies of abiding by judicial gag orders and being in contempt of court. So thus, he is willing to civilly disobey a spineless system that has thoroughly disenfranchised most of white British society.

        Robinson could have been anywhere else in England on Friday, doing a whole range of things to bring attention to grooming gangs and the failure of the authorities to prosecute and the press to investigate.

        But instead Robinson was at the one place in England where the system was actually doing the right thing and putting these rapists away. And he did something that could give grounds for a mistrial.

        That is breathtaking stupidity — or something entirely more sinister.

        If you really want to take a “Burn baby burn!” stance toward the British system, why gravitate to the one place on Cuck Island where it is actually doing the right thing?

    The main problem in Western European “political nationalism” is that everyone needs to be a kosher zionist supporter. Every party or politician that’s allowed to rise in politics has to shill for the Chosen Ones, or perish in lawfare and bogus arrests before the first election, with an exemption for muslims of course.

    In my country of Belgium, even anti-Zionism is made equal to anti-Semitism by law, so even the slightest infraction leads to a maximum of 5 years in jail.

    That’s why every sorry excuse for a rightwing politician, like Geert Wilders (a former kibbutzim), Marine Le Pen and almost everyone else is continuously cucking for Israel and the Zio-brigade. Even the edgiest ones, like a Filip De Winter from Vlaams Belang in Flanders, regularly takes trips to Israel to show his support for the ZOG.

    If you tought only the US was cucking to the Chosen Ones, think again.

    TR, like most, became their pawn, in exchange for some meagre pay and protection, which they dropped as soon as they could. Him getting arrested was a PR stunt gone wrong, because het tought they backed him up. The only way he can be useful to us is as a(n) martyr/example to convince normies of the way Western Europe in sinking into a quagmire of its own making.

Most of these people don’t even know who Turner is.

    You assert that, ‘Robinson’s actions actually made it more likely the defendants would go free’ as though it were fact. It is not, it is pure speculation on your behalf. The determination as to whether court proceedings or due process have been, or MIGHT BE prejudiced through contempt is a matter for the the court to decide. It seems that in this case, one or other of these possibilities were assumed to be true by the presiding judge, but the view that Robinson ‘interfered in court proceedings’ may not be correct, especially since he was apparently careful to quote information already in the public domain (previously published by local & regional newspapers).
    Tommy Robinson may well be ‘morally reckless’ & even ‘a bit stupid’, but your assertion that his actions have ‘harmed the cause of justice’ & ‘made it harder that rape gangs be successfully prosecuted’ remains speculative & rests on the premise that the judge in this case has not erred. At this point, Is remains to be seen whether justice has indeed been served by the judge’s actions. Given the lack of judicial transparency up until now, I am surprised that you are so ready to make that assumption.

      There was a ban on reporting on the trial. Robinson breached that ban and was arrested. Any lawyer worth his salt will be looking into whether this gives cause for a mistrial. You can call that “speculative” if you want, but you are simply burying your head somewhere.

        The question is one of equality before the law.
        Why a reporting ban on these accused when there was no reporting ban on Rolf Harris or Max Clifford? I don’t recall a ban for the Rotherham, Oxford or Rochdale grooming gang trials. For that matter, there was no ban on reporting on Lord Janner or Jimmy Saville before charges were laid. The allegations in the media were so widespread that it would have prohibited the selection of an impartial jury, had the cases proceeded.
        The contempt of court charge is entirely bogus. The accused were attending a sentencing hearing, which means the verdict had already been reached. How can “the case” be compromised? Is the judge admitting that he would be influenced by the media and not the facts of the case in pronouncing sentence? Perhaps the judge should be removed.
        Were there no other reporters attending?
        This is much bigger than Tommy Robinson, regardless of his opinions and behaviour. It is an attack on due process, which is a danger to all of us.

        The political establishment then put a D-Notice making it technically illegal for INDIVIDUALS and media publications to report on that?

    Obviously we pay a cost for saying 2 + 2 = 5, or contempt of court = free speech, but praxiologically speaking, this cost maybe worth it, if it redownds to the delegitimization of the current British government, and increased hostility to its Muslim pets.
    What did blacks and the media loose by gaslighting the American people about Mike Brown and Trayvon? Okay they got Trump. They made white Americans more “racially aware”, so yes, they overplayed their hand, and paid a high price. But Brittain’s Muslims and anti-white establishment are already “racially aware”. It is white Britons who fail to appreciate the nature of the threat. And many on center or Libertarian right seem galvanized by what they see (wrongly) as a double-standard being applied to TR.

    Rejecting him, at this moment, even if based on facts and legitimate ethical concerns with his actions, is “beautiful-looserism”. “If you play by your enemies’ rules, you loose”.

    Furthermore, there is a strong possibility, that at least one of the accusers in this case, really is lying about having been assaulted. A dumb and wicked thing to do: fine, but if the case is allowed to proceed, and these lies are exposed, the story will be used to discount and intimidate victims of Muslim sex-crime for generations (Americans still talk about Emmit Till for Christsakes’!?) It might very well be in the interest of our people to simply crash the case, and try to force a counter narrative of Tomm-as-martyr.

        Tommy could have been anywhere else Friday, it’s true, and today he is jail being discussed very favorable by almost the entire anglophone “right”. Even (((Ben Shapiro))) has condemned the arrest. Tragic and shameful though it is, our your young are more motivated by “freeze peach” than by the safety and dignity of their own white sisters. Tommy’s arrest, rightly or wrongly, could turn out to be a major liability to the British government.

    “In that case, his sentence was suspended under condition that he not reoffend for another 18 months. Because he violated the conditions of his suspended sentence, he was ordered to spend 13 months in jail.”

    Even if he was a reoffender, I wonder whether the sentence length is abnormally long. I don’t understand how one jumps from zero to thirteen months. Moreover, do other people get charged for doing the same thing? Was there selective enforcement? We know the authorities seem to have used selective enforcement against him in other ways.

    Also, I disagree that filming someone before a trial can ruin the trial. I could see not filming in the courtroom or on private property, but it seems unreasonable to prohibit it in public streets. I could see how banning filming people without their permission, even on public property, can protect us from being doxxed, but ideally the doxxing question should be addressed with legislation to protect against being fired for beliefs rather than against public filming. I also fail to understand how someone asking the defendant questions before the trial ruins the trial. The defendant can always remain silent, and if they choose to speak and if they tell the truth carefully, then they will have nothing to worry about. It was a stupid law. For me, breaking it isn’t a huge offense. It’s definitely not worth 13 months, even for a reoffense. It should be treated at worst as a repeat misdemeanor. The penalty should not be jail.

    The question is when civil disobedience is useful. Either using or not using it can be advantageous. Socrates refrained from using it, and I think his decision to abide by his sentence made his teachings more popular. Rosa Parks used civil disobedience, and of course, the (((media))) made a martyr out of her. I could understand the argument that even if Robinson opposed that law, it would have been better to break a law specifically related to laws against criticizing immigration of Muslims rather than one involving trial procedure. But at some point, when the nation makes so many damn laws, it’s hard not to break one. I don’t think we should come down on him too harshly for doing so, particularly because the law seems unreasonable. I also want to make sure he wasn’t the victim of selective enforcement.

    Robinson is not one of us, and we should criticize him for that, but it seems unrest over his sentence can only help us. Most people will view the sentencing as an attack on whites, and it seems to some extent they may be right, so I think we should use the incident to try to redpill them further.

    I see why you have come to this conclusion but you are simply wrong. Firstly the d notices aren’t about creating a fair trail but managing public perception. They want to have the legal precedings over and done with and then a small story at a later date that can be downplayed by our left wing media. Also Tommy only repeated information that was all already published in the media such as defendants photos and names. He was also very careful not to contravene the previous contempt order which explicitly stated that he was not film on court property or infer guilt before sentencing. Neither did he intend to break the d notice by stating what sentence they had been given, which he made clear in the live stream. This was all pretty much confirmed by the fact that he was arrested on a false charge of breach of the peace which was then immediately dropped once in custody.
    Without the EDL pushing these cases forward for so many years then all of this would never have come to trial so all the cunts trying to say he’s stupid and reckless should stfu.
    Lastly for all americans reading this you don’t seem to understand the situation that us white working class are in over here, we’re unarmed and living in a authoritarian semi police state where you can end up in prison for wrong think with a load of jihadi cunts.

    Usually I find myself agreeing with Greg Johnson on most issues. In this case it’s different. Western Europe, especially the UK, is so cucked that we need people who do good work like Tommy Robinson. Gregs logic is not at fault but the mistake of Tommy – and yes, it was a mistake of his – does not mean we should not support Tommy.

    Tommy Robinson is someone who can reach normies. He’s done some amazing work. I’m not a big fan of street activism, but he’s got a decent following. Yes, he’s cucked on several issues but on this one thing (Islam/white replacement/rapefugees) he is not. He’s a gateway to being red pilled. He would be a UK version of an Alt-Light type before the Alt-right brand was damaged.

    We need more ways to reach normies. More Tommy’s work better than less Tommy’s. If I listen to Greg Johnson interviews I know he thinks we need to engage the normie more as well. Hopefully this long time CC reader can pull you a little more in this direction Greg – I know you screen comments yourself – with this argument.

        Press blackouts are reasonable to guard due process and ensure fair trials.

        There are plenty of cases of genuine Orwellian suppression of free speech in England. Rally against those.

        There are plenty of opportunities to bring attention to the grooming gangs and the coverups in the establishment and press. Robinson could have chosen any of those.

      Tommy Robinson is a Zionist and always has been. When he founded the EDL, he chose the name because of the JDL, and had a Jewish division of the EDL.

            I agree with your legal and political analysis, but the fact is that between the police and media, *there is* a conspiracy in that nation to keep things as quiet as possible on such cases, and the effective gag order will continue after the perpretrators are given unreasonably short sentences, even shorter with parole.

            I read the mainstream media from Britain, that is how it always works out.

            Also feel sorry for Yaxley-Whatever for his earlier time inside, from my reading, the wardens essentially set him up to be attacked by Muslim inmates, they smashed just about all of his teeth, among other injuries. I wonder if any of his assaulters were awarded extra charges as a result?

            Strongly agree re. the direction of groups like the EDL, people like (e.g.) Pamela Geller and Geert Wilders, if they refuse to recognise who brought the problem about (and in Geller’s case, she was very likely one of them in an earlier period), it is a major case of false consciousness.

            In my browser bookmarks, I still have, for example, Gates of Vienna, worth reading at times, but I file it under neo-con, because, although I think the Baron privately disagrees, his wife takes the ‘Judaeo-Christian’ line with hook and sinker.

            So, no criticism of jewish and Zionist propaganda and actions allowed, and they are on the more reasonable end of the fake extremists who are de facto neo-cons.

            Robinson seems to be trying to get the British people to wake up. Many smarter and better educated people have colluded with the Bobo elite in the indifference and hostility to the native working class.

            We agree on the need to wake people up. And because it is so important, we should do it in the most effective way possible.

            Robinson could have been anywhere in the UK on Friday, May 25th to raise awareness. But he chose to go to the one place where his presence could impede rather than promote justice for these rapists. That is astonishingly bad judgment.

            Robinson did show misjudgement. He possibly agrees with you from his cell.

            The British elite want to treat this as a legal and technical matter. Everything is under control. There’s a video where Robinson travels from London to Luton by train and passes through the insulated bobo suburbs and towns whose daughters are unaffected. The contempt toward elites he expressed was the same as you did on a recent YouTube discussion.

            Maybe we need to wake the Saxon up by any means necessary. Sometimes the events and individuals that trigger changes in consciousness can be surpising and unexpected. Ride the Tiger!

    Tommy Robinson and his Zionist handlers don’t speak up for our people, so why on earth should we speak up for them? Robinson is a tool used to drum up Muslim hate while simultaneously signalling that he is A-Okay with with the browning of Britain and the white world. He is a lackey of Canadian Zionist Ezra Levant and a crypto-Jew himself. I sincerely hope he is murdered in prison as it will be one less fraud out there to disorient our people. Ditto for that disgusting old hag Katie Hopkins.

      I would suggest to you that to wish for an activist’s murder when in prison is *unproductive* in the extreme. In addition to being morally wrong it is very bad strategy to wish such a thing and to express it on a public forum. If I were someone connected with Robinson’s work or who admired what he does, your comment would prejudice me against you (and rightfully so) and also against the forum and platform where it appears.

      There are many different levels of activism and many of them — the *lite* versions included — dovetail with our concerns and ideas. But even among those of us who are more radical in our understandings of things we do not see eye to eye in all things. But what is to be gained by breaking ranks? What is to be gained by wishing someone to be killed? Nothing. And everything is to be gained by working thoughtfully and sincerely with people who are on the same side of the fence.

    Sun Tzu refers to the “moral law” as that which motivates men to take sides and to fight. Ultimately, it is more powerful than the state, and it is coming down — as it should — on the side of Robinson, and against Islam and the British State, as we see the British people take to the street. This is happening because Robinson’s actions clearly not only don’t challenge the likelihood of justice with these particular Muslim rapists, but are in large part the reason that justice is being carried out against them at all. No sane country would put him in jail, and the citizens of Britain are beginning to realize this.

    I’m open to the position, and I get the argument, but to me it still seems absolutely insane to challenge the status quo for decades, to decry the foreign influence on our countries, and then when a man finally stands up to it successfully, and is subsequently cognitively punished based on nothing more than legalistic pedantry which no one else is held to, that we should take the side of the pedantry JUST as the population is rising to the cause.

      I second CBR’s remarks. Further, Tommy Robinson has COURAGE, an extremely rare virtue in our times, and his core supporters among the football lads and military veterans rally to him for this reason. He also embodies a certain working class charisma.

      Even though Tommy R is a bit muddle-headed on the actual issues (rather like Trump), he and his supporters are clearly our allies–they are our people–and my hope is that these protests are not a mere spasm, but the opening stages of a revolution, as the British people awaken from their slumber in the cold, cold shower of an openly hostile State.

            Greg is paraphrasing Aristotle. Courage as the mean between cowardice & recklessness. A disposition toward courage absent “phronesis” will degenerate into the pursuit of futile & self-destructive conflicts and adventures, or in this case a media stunt.

            Aristotle remarks, however, that “most reckless men are reckless cowards, they put on a show of confidence when the situation permits, but do not stand their ground.” Clearly this cannot be said of Robinson, who has already suffered greatly at the hands of the State, and yet he remains unbroken.

            Courage, in Aristotle, is foundational for the other virtues, as it inculcates self-control in the face of pain. A man who claims intellectual virtue, but lacks courage, is an empty cipher, a fraud, typical of our too-clever-by-half managerial elites.

            T Robinson has something like courage. But he lacks the cunning of an Oedipus, the sound judgment of an Aristotelian citizen. He is rough & untutored. So let us say that he embodies *something* and that this something is (today) very rare & concrete. This is why the crowd chants not abstract slogans but “Tommy-Tommy-Tommy Tommy Robinson!” And also the converse, “Shame! Shame! Shame on you!”

    Was Robinson egged on by his most-ardent Zionist supporters in a deliberate attempt to deflect attention from another important free speech trial the same day?

    Also last Friday, I was found guilty of causing ‘gross offence’ by sending (=uploading?!) three of my own songs about the ‘Holocaust’ and Jewish power to YouTube.

    The arrest and jailing of Tommy Robinson is having an effect on the average people of Britain who likely have a kind of middle-of-the-road perspective on things.

    While I have no knowledge of the jurisprudential details of this arrest (Greg’s revelations were new to me), it seems obvious that this event is far more related to the chilling of speech and will be understood as such. Along these lines I think it must be understood that there is now a world-wide effort to silence dissidents and also that intelligence agencies are involved in this. Meaning, there is a *cold cultural war* going on and we need to be aware that *they* will stop at nothing in their attempts to stem the dissemination of ideas that we are all involved in publicizing. The arrest and jailing of Robinson is an important event within the context of this cold cultural war and it is imperative to *support* him. However, my general position is that we must never break ranks with one another and even when we have definite differences we must not allow wedges to be driven between us. And that is what intelligence efforts will seek to do (are seeking to do and will do). If they can exploit divisions they will do it. If over a ten year period of time they can weaken the resolve of a social movement and *manage* it, they can succeed in coopting it. It has been done many times before.

    The reaction to the arrest of Robinson will inevitably politicize many people and allow them to become more open to the srot of ideas we are comfortable with. Therefor, though I may differ from aspects of Robinson’s position I will definitely support him.

    Whether these sex criminals go free or not is not really the issue. The issue is helping to stimulate a social movement within British culture, and European culture, in which it becomes seen as natural and good to turn back the tide of Muslim cultural invasion while simultaneously stimulating a Europe-wide reidentification with Europeanness. Even in Robinson’s *limited chauvinism* there is a great deal to be worked with. It is a starting point. People like Robinson — the sector of society he represents — will not move to our camp easily. Our radicalism even among ourselves has been a rather long process. I don’t think we should forget this.

    Tommy Robinson only filmed after the trial had concluded, so there is no possible way in which he influenced the trial.

    He did not film on Court property, but from an adjacent street.

    In UK those accused of sexual assault are named, identified in the press, and their photographs published. Using this information, and the fact that those who arrive for sentencing typically carry some belongings in a bag, Robinson filmed the rapists, on the street.

    I know there are reporting restrictions on events, but you could at least make some attempt to gather the pertinent facts.

    • Posted May 28, 2018 at 9:37 am | Permalink

      The problem in this case is that the same defendants and/or witnesses are due to appear in a separate, upcoming trial in a different court.

      The same contempt rules apply also for nationalists charged with several offences in separate trials. We cannot complain about such laws only when it suits us.

      • Adrian Davies
        Posted May 28, 2018 at 5:19 pm | Permalink

        Alison is absolutely right. The same contempt of court laws forbid the naming of a well known nationalist who was convicted of several offences of inciting racial hatred at Preston Crown Court a few weeks ago and will be tried for other alleged offences of inciting racial hatred in the autumn.

        The point is that in England the accused’s previous convictions cannot generally be led in evidence against him unless the accused chooses to put his character in issue or attack the character of a prosecution witness.

        By naming the loathsome individuals convicted of raping young English girls, “Tommy Robinson” (Stephen Yaxley-Lennon) has at the least put the trials of the same loathsome individuals charged with raping other young English girls at risk. Think about the implications of that.

        Greg’s analysis is correct (and if I may say so, most impressive coming from someone with no training in English law).

    Robinson is a garden variety anti-Islamist who has always been a bit of a mess – Starting LGBT, Jewish and “black and white unite” divisions of the EDL that never took off, attending Israel and showboating with the IDF (presumably to annoy Muslims) and ditching the EDL for government funded counter-extremism think tank Quilliam for being paid off under the table – quite likely so he could be exposed to the “white supremacist lone wolf” propaganda narrative. To the best of my knowledge he doesn’t advocate for mass deportations but closing down mosques, largely symbolic issues like banning halal meat and so on. It is my hope that more people ditch Robinson and come over to real British nationalism as advocated by people like Jez Turner. Where is the EDL for Jez??

    I read this much :-

    On Friday, May 25th, UK white advocate Tommy Robinson was arrested outside Leeds Crown Court as he live-streamed accused members of a Muslim gang of child rapists entering the building for sentencing. After more than an hour, he was arrested.
    He was then convicted of contempt of court………

    Then I stopped to comment!!.

    Already after a few lines I halted what I was reading because yet again the wording and terminology for brainwashing coercion is immediately apparent. You are obviously another being who’s narcissistic personality believes others want to hear what you have got to say.
    Mr Robinson/Yaxley-Lennon, like him or not and I am not a big fan at all, was doing absolutely nothing outside of the law!. It is a good job he was filming his actions for the public to see and recognise the type of corruption that goes on everyday in the UK and other countries alike. The system is gradually getting concerned by Mr Robinson and his ilk, eventually people will slowly start leaving the flock they are wrapped and brainwashed in. I am led believe, through intensive research, Mr Robinson and others have information on several “Closed Door Cases” that involved pedophilia and corruption and this was a great way to remove him. Bottom line and write what you like but don’t expect others who have a brain to take heed !!

    My understanding is that:
    Tommy Robinson was reporting on a trial that had already been concluded – the men involved were being sentenced, not tried.
    With regards to filming, newspapers in Britain routinely carry photos of people both before and after they are convicted. I assume they are allowed to do so because they are sufficent distance from the court. Importantly, a clip exists of Robinson asking the officer outside the court where he could stand so he was outside the precincts of the court.

    Moreover:
    Robinson was arrested for breach of the peace – but that was not what he was accused of when he got to court.
    Police told Robinson’s solicitor that Robinson was going to be released, so she did not travel to Leeds to represent him – consequently, Robinson was not represented by his usual brief (instead, he got a court solicitor, totally unsuitable given the political circumstances).

    I agree that Robinson’s conduct last year, when he got his suspended sentence for filming suspects was foolish and wrong, but I regard him as in the right on this occasion.

    Given that previous sentence lengths for other Muslim rapists have been mockeries of justice, is your contention that public outrage will be deflected away from the insanity of the United Kingdom’s ruling institutions by Mr. Robinson’s actions should they be released with prejudice? My credulity is strained thinking that these invaders would get the book thrown at them for their crimes.

          The British Multicultural Model does not advocate that muslims go out and gang rape White children but The Model certainly does not advocate vigorously exposing it and pointing fingers at the ones (muslims) that are doing it because the ones (muslims) doing it are the pet(s) of the Brit Multicultural Model i.e. the ones The Model want to flood this particular western society and turn it third world.

          Just like here in the USA, the (jew dominated) news and entertainment media, who are four square for multiculturalism i.e. White destruction, are almost entirely silent as to who is committing the vast majority of violent crimes; negroes and meskins. Can’t go around exposing and socially criticizing the ones who are to be replacements of White Americans. Same kind of thing as in Britain.

          So, again, if Robinson is a Brit Multiculturalist why would he be out publicizing who is doing all those rapes of British (i.e. White) girls?

            Robinson is a Zionist. He is not racially motivated. He does have a family member whose life was destroyed by a Muslim rape gang.

            The British Multicultural model does indeed advocate for industrial-scale gang rape of White girls. That is why the police facilitate it, and charge victims and their fathers who complain, with racism.

        Excellent article Greg and a very interesting point about his actions perhaps causing an acquittal.

        But could you please edit the first line where you call Robinson a ‘white advocate’ because that’s really factually incorrect. Robinson has said time and time again that he hates ‘neo-Nazis’ ‘racists’ etc., warns of the dangers of ‘far-right extremism’, calls the BNP racist and ‘wankers’ and basically is totally against any white person who looks out for white interests. He’s said that he would pass on details of any ‘racists’ to the police in the past as well.

        A more correct description of him would be ‘anti-Jihadist campaigner’ or something similar because that, and now the Muslim child rape gangs, is all he concentrates on. He is totally against ethnonationalism so doesn’t think his own people have the right to their own homeland, considers any passing African or Asian to be just as English as Shakespeare and if Muslims could just stop blowing people up and raping children, Robinson wouldn’t have a problem with the Islamic demographic issue at all.
