Media Blackout after Anti-Islamist Activist Jailed in England for Reporting on Muslim Rape Gang Trial
Tommy Robinson, a British activist and journalist, has been arrested outside a Leeds courtroom for livestreaming information about a Muslim gang on trial for raping and grooming hundreds of victims, some as young as eleven. Robinson was taken immediately to prison.
The ongoing trial regards the heinous rape of children as reported by the UK Metro News: "Twenty-six men and two women appeared before a judge at Leeds Crown Court charged with offenses including rape, trafficking, sexual activity with a child, child neglect, child abduction, supplying drugs and making of indecent images of children."
Hundreds of children were allegedly raped and the defendants are now awaiting a verdict in this case. Muslim rape gangs have been an ongoing problem all over England and the British government has been actively trying to hide the widespread crimes from the public by imposing draconian sanctions for reporting on these trials
Robinson has been arrested before for reporting on similar trials in the past and because he was on a 13-month remanded sentence when he was arrested on Friday, he was put directly in prison, where he is at risk of being attacked by Muslim inmates. Unlike in America, the British media are forbidden from reporting on certain trials, purportedly to avoid prejudicing the jury, but many believe it is to keep the truth from the public. Robinson disobeys the law because he believes, rightly so, that the people are being denied the right to know what is happening in their country.
Here is the video of his arrest.
The full video of the livestream that got him arrested is below. You can hear him reporting on the crimes that occurred and even saying many times that this is not all Muslims, but that radical Islam is a factor in the rape culture that has infected England because of mass immigration.
It is well-documented that the authorities in England have tried to cover up the Muslim gang rape epidemic. The police in Rotherham ignored Pakistani gangs sexually abusing more than 1400 British children, as reported by Forbes in 2014, in order to not appear "racist."
A story of rampant child abuse—ignored and abetted by the police—is emerging out of the British town of Rotherham... The result of this has been that police forces lean over backwards to avoid the accusation of racism, while social workers will hesitate to intervene in any case in which they could be accused of discriminating against ethnic minorities. Matters are made worse by the rise of militant Islam, which has added to the old crime of racism the new crime of ‘Islamophobia’. No social worker today will risk being accused of this crime. In Rotherham a social worker would be mad, and a police officer barely less so, to set out to investigate cases of suspected sexual abuse, when the perpetrators are Asian Muslims and the victims ethnically English. Best to sweep it under the carpet, find ways of accusing the victims or their parents or the surrounding culture of institutionalised racism, and attending to more urgent matters such as the housing needs of recent immigrants, or the traffic offences committed by those racist middle classes.
This resulted in more than 1400 children being sexually abused, addicted to drugs, raped and terrorized for years with no accountability. Robinson has been trying to tell the world what mass immigration has done to his country and his country has now jailed him for doing so. Many in America are incensed that his "free speech rights" are being infringed upon, but England has no right to free speech. Robinson has been jailed legally for speech the government deems "inciting" and harmful. They have the right to do it because their laws allow it. Robinson knows the risks he takes by bringing the reality to the world and is now paying the price.
Even more disturbing is that the judge who threw Robinson in jail for reporting the trial issued a press blackout disallowing any UK press from talking about his arrest.
How can the press in the UK go along with this government censorship of information? Robinson's arrest has been scrubbed from all UK sources. Here is the UK Mirror before and after the decree went out to stop reporting on Robinson's arrest.
Even Breitbart London has scrubbed their report of Robinson's arrest. Were they threatened with expulsion or something similar by the UK government if they reported it? This is Chinese-like censorship of news. It's an outrage for a "free" Western country. There is no question that Robinson was arrested—it is on film and British news outlets are not allowed to report it.
Here is Breitbart London's response to the gag order.
In the UK, reporting on an ongoing trial can be considered "contempt of court" and is a jailable offense as reported by Metro News: "People or newspapers can be in ‘contempt of court’ when they create a ‘substantial risk’ of prejudicing an ongoing court case. It is a criminal offence that can land people in jail."
This is significantly different than American laws which protect the freedom of the press to report on any trial. Press may not be allowed in the courtroom, but reporting on the specifics of the case, speculation, and simply speaking about the victims of the crime and offering opinions on them is allowed in the U.S. Not so in the UK. This seems to confound the American public who think Robinson is allowed to speak his mind. As a British subject, he is not. And it behooves us all to understand that America is the only place in the world where all speech is protected. Until the British people stage a revolution, the oppression will continue under the Crown.
Robinson is vilified in the UK press as a "far-right, Islamophobic, racist" and a host of other insults, but he is definitely on the cutting edge of alerting the world to the state of free speech and censorship in England. If no one is allowed to report facts about crimes that have occurred, it's a very scary reality facing the British people. Who knows what else has happened there that no one will be allowed to hear. If this ruling is allowed to stand, perhaps England should lose its status as a member of the "free world." Free countries don't jail dissenters.
