In a leader appearing in the June 16th issue of The Economist, an English main-stream media publication, a case is made that Russia should free Russian film maker Oleg Sentsov, who has been imprisoned under harsh conditions for making his political views public, political views which embarrass the political leadership of Russia. It is a fine piece, and one must certainly agree with its exhortation to set Mr. Sentsov free. But how can it be that an English publication fails to publish a similar leader for a very similar domestic case? It is a prime case of fake news by neglect. This is what the missing piece could have looked like:
Free Tommy Robinson
The outrageous penalty imposed on a peaceful journalist should be reversed
As you settle down to watch the World Cup in Russia, remember Tommy Robinson, an English human rights activist serving a 13-month sentence in a prison for hardened criminals, most of whom are intent on killing Mr. Robinson at first opportunity because of his race, religion and political views. He has committed no commensurable crime. Rather, he was jailed for protesting against Theresa May’s and the English justice system’s illegal discrimination of native Britishers and the systematic mainly Muslim pedophile mass rape, trafficking and forced prostitution industry English authorities have helped create and uphold for the last half century. On May 25th Mr. Robinson was arrested for a fake crime and then in a four-minute show trial sentenced to jail for two other fake crimes. The opening of the World Cup on June 14th was Mr. Robinson’s 21st day in prison this time around, most of which he must spend in solitary confinement. He has previously only just survived an attempt at his life while in prison and has been badly beaten and had his teeth broken in another attack apparently staged for this purpose by the prison. He is rapidly acquiring the moral stature once accorded to people like the Birmingham Six, who served unjust and politically motivated sentences in the seventies and eighties.
Mr Robinson’s plight is a reminder that the struggle goes on. He is an ethnically English citizen who was born in Luton and considered it to be part of the Christian Western civilization that emerged in Europe after the fall of Rome in 476. (Nearly everyone apart from the English government shares this view.) In 2009 he joined the movement that protested against Muslim gangs attacking returning British soldiers in Luton, and was soon put under a prolonged maleficent attack by English justice led by Home Secretary Theresa May, a thuggish hypocrite fond of panther-patterned pumps. Growing up in Luton, Mr. Robinson saw how Muslims were given privileges by police to commit crimes, especially gang raping, kidnapping, enslaving and torturing English girls as young as 11 years of age. As British war heroes returned from Afghanistan, local Muslims attacked them.
Mr. Robinson organised rallies against the attacks. The English security services arrested him. He was charged with “fraud by misrepresentation in relation to a mortgage application”. He was innocent. The aim of Mr. Robinson’s show trial was to reinforce Mrs. May’s narrative of English “Islamophobia” and to strike fear into those who dispute it.
Mrs. May’s regime, rather like her predecessors’, is built on falsehood and appeasement of Muslims. The justice system’s inaction has led to racist and jihadist gang raping on an industrial scale in working-class England, which has directly as victims affected more than 100,000 girls and women. Thousands of Englishmen have been terrorised, beaten or driven out of their homes. Mr. Robinson is courageously denouncing all this—and seems ready to die for his cause. It goes without saying that he should be freed immediately and that the world should loudly demand as much. Mrs. May is unlikely to heed such calls. But she has reason to fear the undeniable fact of the death in custody of a man like Mr. Robinson. As she no doubt recalls, the Soviet Union did not collapse in a hail of bullets, but because people stopped believing its lies. ■
