Banning Alex Jones?


Justified Only If…

 

John R. Houk

Alex Jones is literally being censored on every digital media format I can think of.

 

I have to be clear. I am not a supporter or big fan of Mr. Jones. Many of his Conspiracy Theories propagated from his soapbox are just plain outlandish and crazy.

 

The massive digital censorship Jones is accused of is hate-speech. Frankly, as outlandish and offensive Jones can be I am not surprised the hate-speech accusations are levelled against him.

 

I do have a couple of problems with the censorship.

 

ONE: The same media platforms censoring Jones allow Muslims to spew Jew-Hatred and promote physical harm to Jews and other non-Muslims. However, when a non-Muslim points out Islamic tenets and Muslim history demonstrate violent hatred for all things non-Muslim specifying Jews, Christians and polytheists. Militant homosexuals overtly express hatred toward Biblical Values Christians yet will censor Biblical Values Christians for supporting the Bible’s labelling the homosexual practice a sin against God’s Word. In essence this is censorship hypocrisy.

 

TWO: The same media platforms rarely if ever censor Left-Wing calls for violence against Conservatives yet they will censor Conservatives refuting a violent Leftist agenda. For example Maxine Walters advocating Leftists to disrupt reputed Conservative meetings and Conservatives living their private lives at open-to-the-public venues. Astonishingly to date, Conservative individuals have refused to respond with self-defense violence for Leftist provocation. I’m a disabled dude and I don’t know if I would exhibit such self-restraint to respond with action if someone shouting directly in front of my face.

 

I hate defending Alex Jones because I am convinced he has used actual hate-speech; however look at some of phrases the digital media platforms label as hate-speech worthy of censorship via banning:

 

The resident Jew, Leftist Jews, Jewish Mafia (Alex Jones Accused Of Anti-Semitism, Sexual Harassment; By Aiden Pink; Forward.com; 3/1/18)

 

The same article on Forward.com also illustrates actual forms of hate-speech via sexual harassment which is unacceptable but demonstrated on Alex Jones programs.

 

I don’t know what Alex Jones other than the vague accusation of the kind of speech the digital platforms call hatred or inciting violence:

 

“… the stated reason for the ban on his content is not defamation but “hate speech” against Muslims, transgender people, and other groups.” (Booting Alex Jones from social media wasn’t wrong, but it could be dangerous; By Cathy Young; USA Today; 8/8/18 9:03 a.m. ET)

 

If the hate-speech was critical of a belief system corresponding to Islam or the LGBTQ agenda, then said hate-speech violation is an absurd accusation. If Jones said something dimwitted such as maybe, “hunt down the camel jockeys and give them a tasted of their own medicine” or “rope the fudge-packer and drag the shem down the road”. Those kinds of phrases are indeed inciting violence and is a good reason for censuring and/or banning.

 

Here is the Joseph Farah email (which is also a bit of a fundraiser) that inspired my thoughts.

First, they came for Alex Jones …

The pretense and subtlety are over, ‘Digital Cartel’ now overtly attacking ‘offensive’ voices

I’ve been warning everyone who would listen about the greatest threat to freedom of speech, freedom of the press and freedom of religion in America today.

It’s not government.

Instead, the overt attack on America’s First Amendment comes from the corporate behemoth internet gatekeepers who are in ideological lockstep with each other – from Google to YouTube to Facebook to Twitter to Apple to Amazon.

This week, YouTube and Facebook followed Apple’s lead in banishing Alex Jones, the iconic, high-energy voice that rails against globalism and the Deep State daily on radio, podcasts and his own Infowars TV show. He was an easy target and a predictable one – a controversial figure, without doubt, and a high-profile one with a sizable following.

Not everyone wants to defend Alex Jones – certainly not everything he says.

Yet, the First Amendment wasn’t crafted by America’s founding geniuses to protect tepid, non-controversial speech. It was crafted to protect just this kind of fiery dialogue – the kind that offends some people, some sensibilities. Alex Jones is a good choice to start the censorship juggernaut rolling if you think like the Southern Poverty Law Center. And one thing Apple, Google, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and Amazon all have in common is their love of, reverence for, and partnerships with this extremist band of smear merchants who never met anyone right of center that they didn’t label a “hater,” a “fascist,” a “Nazi” or a “racist” – including, of course, the current president of the United States.

So, first the Digital Cartel came for Alex Jones.

Who will be next? I don’t know, but I don’t plan to find myself in the position in which Martin Niemöller found himself in Nazi Germany. He’s most famous for this prescient quotation: “First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out – Because I was not a Socialist. Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out – Because I was not a Trade Unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out – Because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me – and there was no one left to speak for me.”

I’m going to defend Alex Jones’ right to say what he wants – even if I sometimes, or even often, find myself in disagreement with him. And I’m going to condemn this cabal of bloated mega-corporations imposing their ideology on America’s most vital public square – the digital media.

Maybe you say, “Well, Farah, don’t these corporations have the absolute right to approve and disapprove of the viewpoints they carry – just like you do?” The answer may be surprising: No, they don’t. None of these conglomerates are publishers, content producers, part of the “press.” They are more akin to “utilities” – like the telephone companies of old, or the electricity producers who have a public obligation to be fair and neutral in offering the services they provide to all, without regard to race, religion and ideology. They don’t have to like Alex Jones. They don’t have to listen to Alex Jones. But if they are going to hold these privileged positions of making lots of money by distributing all manner of content, data and information to the public, they dare not think of themselves as ideological gatekeepers against “offensive” political speech. And they better not designate the disgraced partisan hacks of the SPLC as their content cops, which is precisely what they have done – all of them!

I know I sound like a broken record on this theme, but I’m going to keep pounding on it until the public catches on to the threat these trillion-dollar monopolies pose to America’s precious institutions of free speech, the free press and freedom of religion. We need congressional hearings. We need action in Washington. We need President Trump to recognize who the biggest purveyors of fake news really are. It’s not just CNN and the Huffington Post. It’s their distribution arms – Google, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Apple and Amazon – the Digital Cartel.

It’s time to throw down the gauntlet, draw a marker in the sand, file class-action lawsuits, summon our leaders to action.

Are we going to let this cabal render the First Amendment null and void?

I’ve been telling you how they have attacked WND relentlessly and ruthlessly through its politically and religiously discriminatory algorithms. I’ve told you how they have been coming after the independent media, especially since the 2016 election that so disappointed all of them.

Do you really want to talk about supposed Russian interference in our free society when this powerful monolithic cartel is setting the rules of debate for Americans out in plain sight – openly censoring voices they don’t like while systematically elevating those they do like? What a sick joke!

As for me, I will defend the voices of dissent, and even controversy, as long as I have a soapbox upon which to stand. I know they are coming after me and the world’s first independent online news company, which I founded 21 years ago. Once again, I ask you to stand with me, or else find yourself living in a country you won’t long recognize. No privacy. No freedom.

Please support us, or risk finding yourself living in a very different and scary version of America soon.

Help us to raise a much-needed additional $100,000 through August – our biggest crisis period yet, as we battle for survival against the cartel. We’re already nearly 20 percent of the way there, thanks to many of you. You may not be able to give $1,000 or even $100. But everyone who understands the stakes can contribute $10 or even $3.

 

You can also support WND’s groundbreaking new book, “The Gospel in Every Book of the Old Testament,” with your tax-deductible contributions in any amount to the fabulous missions organization, Gospel for All Nations, which has adopted the project to help spread the truth of the Good News around the world. This book, coming out in hardcover in September, is an important part of WND’s recovery, rebirth and revitalization plan for later this year. Your help with book-printing and marketing expenses will help immensely to weather this storm – not to mention help us distribute this compelling and redemptive “breakthrough Bible book.”

SPLC Hates Free Speech


The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) [See Also DTN] might as well be the chief propaganda machine for all things Leftist/Marxist in America. Not only does the SPLC target fringe groups (e.g. KKK, Neo-Nazis, Aryans, Christian Identity, etc.), but they seek to smear traditional Christian/American values organizations.

 

The SPLC has placed many good and non-violent organizations on a hate list being falsely accused of racism and bigotry while giving a pass to Leftist fringe groups. Bill Warner is one of those targeted by the SPLC. The SPLC would label Warner an Islamophobe racist merely because he shares the truth about Islam.

 

Here, Warner pushes back.

SPLC Hates Free Speech

There was a time in America when freedom of speech was considered so basic that it was rarely talked about. Today “civil rights” organizations such as the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) are devoted to silencing the voices who insist on speaking their minds. The SPLC does not recognize honest differences of opinions, but instead, all who do not adhere to its leftist politics are called “racist-hater-bigot-Islamophobe”. That’s one word, mind you.

The SPLC has found fellow totalitarians in such groups as the Jewish Federation who have turned from tolerance of political differences to attempts to silence dissident voices to Islamic fundamentalists like the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR).

 

As a dissident, I say give me your best shot. No amount of name calling can shut me up.

Southern Poverty Law Center and the Apologists

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) came to my hometown at the invitation of the Jewish Federation. Now the SPLC is the supreme judge of social morality. The SPLC is the US hate monitor and is the basis for censorship by Twitter, Face Book, Google, and You Tube. I am a racist-hater-bigot- Islamophobe according to the SPLC because I talk about political Islam.

 

Part of the problem with the SPLC judgment or decree is that there is no due process or redress. There is no way to challenge them. Their purpose is to shame and drive their victims out of business.

 

The purpose of the SPLC is to censor all those who have different political ideas. They oppose free speech as hate speech. They reject fact based reasoning and critical thought. The Jewish Federation is a partner with these totalitarians. They are joined by the Christians who are apologists for Islam.

 

The SPLC, the Federation or the other apologists cannot stand a critical view of political Islam. Their only response is that critical thinkers are racist-hater-bigot Islamophobes. Knowledge is bigotry and denial is a virtue.

What is Islam?

 

Islam is a cultural, religious and political system. Only the political system is of interest to kafirs (non-Muslims) since it determines how we are defined and treated. The Islamic political system is contained in the Koran, the Hadith (the traditions of Mohammed) and his biography, the Sira.

 

CSPI

 

Center for the Study of Political Islam (CSPI) is an educational organization dedicated to enlightening the general public about the doctrine of political Islam based on the works of Dr. Bill Warner.

 

Our Mission

 

Political Islam has subjugated other civilizations for 1400 years. Our mission is to educate the world about political Islam, its founder Mohammed, his political doctrine and his god, Allah.

 

The Five Principles

 

Islam’s Trilogy of three sacred texts is the Koran and two books about the life of Mohammed. When the Trilogy is sorted, categorized, arranged, rewritten and analyzed, it becomes apparent that five principles are the foundation of Islam.

 

All of Islam is based upon the Trilogy—KoranSira (Mohammed’s biography) and Hadith (his Traditions).


Most of the Islamic doctrine is political, not religious. Islam is a political ideology.

 

Islam divides the world into Muslims and unbelievers, kafirs.

 

Political Islam always has two different ways to treat kafirs—dualistic ethics. Kafirs can be abused in READ THE REST

Free Speech Is Dead In England

British Government ‘Disappears’ Tommy Robinson

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent: 5/31/2018 4:59 PM

 

The arrest of Tommy Robinson, a British free-speech activist, on May 25th, for simply asking questions of alleged criminal pedophile Muslim defendants, as a citizen journalist, has sent shock waves across the Anglosphere and left millions of people in disbelief, forced to now acknowledge that the United Kingdom, once dedicated to the values of freedom, has taken a hard-core, divergent path towards authoritarian government and away from freedom. The once great nation, that created the Magna Carta and once commanded an empire, is now the land of tyranny, and unless the British people love their freedom enough and fight this injustice in fierce fashion, it will remain a land silenced by intimidation and fear.

Published on May 25, 2018

 

 

On Friday May 25th, 2018, Tommy Robinson was arrested for “breaching the peace” while filming outside Leeds Crown Court during the ongoing trial of a Muslim grooming gang. Robinson’s preexisting suspended sentence for “contempt of court” was immediately reinstated and he was swiftly imprisoned. Robinson being jailed for any length of time in a prison system filed with people who want him dead could tragically be a death sentence. The court also instituted a “reporting restriction” on the Robinson situation, leading to a media blackout among United Kingdom based publications and citizens. In the United Kingdom, 2018 is 1984.

 

READ ENTIRETY]

 

The authoritarian socialist government of the United Kingdom has been out to get Robinson for years on anything they can. It has harassed, intimidated, arrested and incarcerated Robinson on past occasions for similar actions, as it did last May, since it is now apparently a “crime” to report on the decades long systematic rape of hundreds of non-Muslim children by gangs of Muslim men, who are now apparently a protected class of people. Lizzie Dearden of the Independent reported that Robinson was arrested for “breaching the peace”, no doubt an absurd pretense by the British authorities, in light of the documented film footage of his actions.

 

Tommy Robinson, a former member of the English Defense League whose real name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, is being unfairly persecuted by the U.K. government. Robinson’s “crime” was that he yelled questions outside Leeds Crown Court and named the alleged defendants, like any other reporter. So what? The state broadcaster, the BBC, and the mainstream media had already named them. Why was he arrested, and why were they not arrested?

 

If gangs of white men had spent decades torturing and raping little Muslim girls and a justly outraged Muslim reporter was covering the case, in a similar manner as Robinson, would he be arrested?

 

We all know the answer is “no”, and we know why. The U.K is so invested in their politically correct, multiculturalism, diversity project, as it seemingly calls good “evil” and evil “good”, that it has applied a different treatment of Muslims under the law, which accepts the diversity of legal systems and places their country on a path toward ruin.

 

Diversity of treatment under the law fragments societies. Diversity in this sense cannot ever work, unless moral values remain constant. If freedom of speech is a value and a virtue, can any free nation really tolerate the intolerant and those who violently oppose freedom of speech, if it expects to remain free?

 

Free societies can only function with a general respect for the rule of law. If the application of the law appears selective, unjust or political, the people begin to see the law as no longer representing them, their principles and their moral values, and they will defy the bad immoral laws and any injustice of its creation.

 

Americans should be highly concerned over this case, because the same type of “hate-speech laws” used against British citizens are currently being advocated in the U.S. Senate, by Marco Rubio (R), Kamala Harris (D), Susan Collins (R) and Dianne Feinstein (D) and a long list of others. Hillary Clinton pushed the same laws in 2012, and in 2015 and 2017, House Resolution 569 and 257 and Senate Resolution 118, three similar unconstitutional laws aimed at our First Amendment rights, were advanced in our Congress, after being drafted by EmgageUSA [Blog Editor: EmgageUSA About Page (formerly EmergeUSA)]and the Muslim Public Affairs Council, two Islamic organizations and defenders of designated terrorist organizations and their supporters, according to the Investigative Project on Terrorism. The passage of any such anti-Freedom of Speech bill would place our country on Britain’s same ruinous path.

 

In a frighteningly quick manner and only a matter of hours, not only was Robinson illegitimately arrested, he was taken before a judge without access to his own lawyer, no trial or due process of law, and he was sentenced to thirteen months in prison. Afterwards, he was promptly transported to Hull Prison, where an imminent threat of death awaits him among a prison population that holds a large number of Muslims.

 

Remember, Kevin Crehan, a British citizen, was imprisoned for a year for leaving a bacon sandwich near a mosque. He was found murdered in his cell on December 27th 2016, which Joseph Curtis reported in The Daily Mail soon after. The same threat hangs over Robinson.

 

As we all know, there has been no press conference or detailed explanation of Robinson’s arrest from the British government, which further illuminates the illegitimacy of this action. Instead of transparency, the government has banned any reports on the trial of the Muslim pedophiles and the arrest and incarceration of Tommy Robinson. Not only are reporters’ questions going unanswered, they are forbidden from even reporting the bare facts of Robinson’s incarceration.

 

On May 26th, Gerald Batten, a UKIP member of the European Parliament tweeted: “I am trying to recall of a case where someone was convicted of a ‘crime’ which cannot be reported on. Where he can be cast into prison without it being possible to report his name, offense, or place of imprisonment for fear of contempt of court. Can anyone remember such a case?”

 

However, this only infuriated journalists across the Atlantic, and Judi McLeod, editor of the Canada Free Press, opened her article by asking, “Where is Tommy Robinson? A question whose answer should be demanded rather than merely asked … Modern day Merry England has become far more nightmare than fairytale, as it steadily works its way toward ugly police state status.”

 

What’s next England — people getting ‘disappeared’ into gulags or being shot in the back of the head, in the style of Stalin or Castro?

 

Free speech is dead in the United Kingdom. The imprisonment of Tommy Robinson and the arbitrary silencing of the press proves this to be so.

 

In a land that once could proudly state “the sun never sets on the British Empire”, their torch of freedom has been extinguished. It’s a land divided by diversity that has now descended into the darkness of tyranny.

 

If the globalists in both of American parties and the U.S. State Department have their way, America will be next.

 

Remember the words of Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn:

 

“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?… The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst; the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If…if…We didn’t love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation…. We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.”

 

Tommy Robinson represents a large segment of Britain’s people, with over 500,000 signatures on a petition already to Free Tommy, and they sent a clear message on Saturday May 26th 2018, that they had enough, as hundreds — thousands (?) — of British people gathered outside 10 Downing Street and stopped traffic, chanted and pressed the gates of Number 10 and threw bottles at machine-gun toting policemen.

Their palpable anger hung thick in the air, because they want Robinson, at the very least, to be released from prison and allowed to get back to his life and enjoy the same protection and human rights and dignity as Anjem Choudary, the terrorist supporter, was afforded by the authorities. And short of this, the summer in Britain will turn out to be a season of riots and civil strife, awaiting the spark that moves the good and decent Brits — of a long ancestry dating to 1066 and William the Conqueror — to love their freedom enough to rise and fight furiously to make their land free once more.

Multiculturalists Malign Tommy Robinson to Discredit Him


John R. Houk

© May 31, 2018

Tommy Robinson’s arrest in front Leeds Court for ONLY shining a light on 29 Muslims involved in rape, trafficking, pedophilia and grooming to perpetuate those crimes of horror; is beginning to be criticized.

 

Defenders of Free Speech are pointing fingers at the United Kingdom claiming the Brits have descended into totalitarianism. Bruce Bawer writing for the Gatestone Institute also criticizes the British Leftist Mainstream Media (MSM) for tarnishing Tommy Robinson by painting a picture of a Right-Wing extremist, you know, the kind of violent people that the USA would characterize as the violence-minded KKK or Arian Brotherhood, or other Neo-Nazi White Supremacist bigots.

 

Indeed Robinson’s is indicative of a history of thuggery noted among British soccer (known as football in UK) fans. The Multiculturalist Leftist website Resisting Hate elaborates Robinson’s past thuggery and crimes even giving examples of purported racist tweets. Here’s a photo from Resisting Hate displaying Robinson’s run-in with British law:

 

List of Tommy Robinson criminal convictions

 

Yet some time during this behavior, Robinson boned up on Islam and found out the Quran, Hadith and Sira legitimizes much of the crimes committed by the 29 Muslims most heinous of crimes of rape, trafficking, pedophilia, etc. Jamie Glazov did a two-part interview with Tommy Robinson discussing his 2015 book, Enemy of the State. You’ll have to go to the Glazov site to watch the interview, but below is an excerpt of the description:

 

Welcome to our special 2-Part Glazov Gang video series with Tommy Robinson, the founder and ex-leader of the EDL, the coordinator of Pegida UK and the author of his new memoir, Enemy of the State.

 

In Part I, Tommy discusses his new memoir and his continuing fight against the Islamization of his country. He talked about his opposition to all forms of racism and the slanders against him, the British authorities’ persecution of him for being a British patriot, the vicious Islamic assault on his nation and the mass denial about it, and much more.

 

In Part II, Tommy focuses on Rotting in Solitary, sharing the excruciating ordeal he has endured in the UK prison system. (TOMMY ROBINSON VS. ISLAMIC SUPREMACISM: SPECIAL 2-PART VIDEO SERIES; JAMIE GLAZOV; JamieGlazov.com; 4/2/16)

 

It sounds to me that Robinson has hung up his thug guns to be an activist for British patriotism, defender of Western Culture and an expose the truth about Islam kind-of-guy.

 

And yet, the British MSM often paints a picture of Robinson of using his past thuggery to wail on counter-culture Muslims.

 

In a 2017 interview between Piers Anthony and Robinson, Anthony went off on a Leftist diatribe to Robinson’s face demeaning anything that exposes Islam. Here’s an excerpt according Hugh Fitzgerald:

 

Piers Morgan had Tommy Robinson on his show recently, but only very briefly, and he hardly let Robinson have a word edgewise, interrupting him at every turn. …

 

Morgan registered his objection, saying, “Here’s my point. Right, I’ve read a lot of stuff that you’ve said and done. I know your history, I know all of it. Good, bad and ugly. Some of it is ugly, some of it, I agree with.”

… And what you were doing, was fomenting hatred and almost suggesting that somehow this attack, this revenge attack as you put it, was somehow deserving because of the historical behavior of certain people at a completely different mosque — that was my problem.”

“OK, Piers,” Robinson responded, “the newspaper you work for said exactly the same within an hour — Abu Hamza’s mosque. Were they fomenting hate, the newspaper you work for? Were they? Were they inciting hate?”

“I don’t run the Daily Mail,” Morgan protested.

“Now, if I hold up this book [i.e. the Quran] and say, ‘There will never be peace on this Earth so long as we have this book, it’s a violent and cursed book,’ Can I say that? Sir William Gladstone said that,” Robinson continued, referring to the 19th century prime minister of Great Britain’s description of the Quran.

“Would you say that of the Bible? Show some respect,” Morgan retorted.

“Show some respect? Have you read this book?” Robinson shot back. “Have you read this book? There are a hundred verses in this book that incite violence and murder against us.”

 

Why didn’t Piers Morgan answer Robinson’s question? Has he read the Qur’an? If he had, why wouldn’t he say so? The problem for Piers Morgan is that either he has not read the Qur’an (which is entirely possible, for study is not his strong suit, and he seems to be noticeably unwilling to engage on its contents, never having mentioned a single one of its verses) and therefore has no business taking issue with what Tommy Robinson, channeling Gladstone, maintains, or he has read it in which case he knows what it contains and and [sic] wants to keep that information from the public. After all, if he had said, “Yes of course I’ve read the Qur’an,” Robinson’s next question would have been: “Okay, can you recall even one verse out of the more than one hundred that incite violence and murder against the Infidels?”

 

READ the whole post to understand how Multiculturalists would rather defend a culture of hate rather Western Culture (Piers Morgan, Bigoted Lunatic; By HUGH FITZGERALD; Jihad Watch; 6/24/17 11:26 AM)

 

The most balanced reporting that did not accuse Robinson of being a Right-Wing extremist was Fox News:

 

The arrest and jailing of British right-wing activist Tommy Robinson for covering a child grooming trial has led to an outpouring of anger from conservative political figures in the U.S. and Europe — with Donald Trump Jr. citing it as a reason “for the original Brexit.”

 

Robinson, whose real name is Stephen Lennon, was arrested Friday outside a court in Leeds for filming men accused of being part of a gang that groomed children. Britain has been rocked by an epidemic of child sex scandals perpetuated by gangs of predominantly Muslim men.

 

Fox News reported Friday that he had been jailed for 13 months for contempt of court, but British media initially were unable to report on the sentence due to a reporting ban slapped on the case by the judge. That ban was lifted Tuesday after appeals by media outlets.

 

Robinson, the former leader of the English Defense League known for his acerbic criticism of Islam, reportedly pleaded guilty to breaching the terms of a previously suspended sentence from 2017 when he reported on a similar case.

 

Robinson is a polarizing figure in the U.K. Supporters say he speaks out against political correctness and the growing influence of Islamic extremism, while opponents claim he is a racist who stokes fear and division, and note that he has previous convictions.

 

 

The details of the case Robinson was reporting on last week are still blocked by a reporting ban. Consequently many British media outlets reported only that he was arrested outside a courthouse, but gave no specifics about the case itself. However, Robinson’s supporters say he repeated allegations that have been published in local media outlets.

 

Robinson’s jailing has tapped into a long-standing narrative among conservatives in the U.K. and Europe that authorities are quick to clamp down on anyone bringing attention to crimes associated with Islam, while being lax about the perpetrators of those crimes.

 

Consequently, as news trickled out over the weekend, conservative figures reacted with fury. On Saturday, crowds descended outside Downing Street to demonstrate for Robinson’s release.

 

Others expressed concern for Robinson’s welfare, suggesting that due to his profile as an Islam critic, he may be a target in prison. U.K. Independence Party leader Gerard Batten said that one of the party’s members of the House of Lords wrote to Home Secretary Sajid Javid threatening a private prosecution as “an accessory, or for misconduct in public office.”

 

 

Quickly, the case picked up international attention. Trump Jr. responded to a tweet about the case and the gag order, saying it was “Reason #1776 for the original #Brexit.”

  • It seems fair to say that the incident has shocked, outraged, and scared people around the world who, until now, had thought of the United Kingdom as a free country.

  • Meanwhile, Robinson remains in jail for daring to exercise his free speech, and what the mainstream media have won back is the right to resume repeating their lockstep lies about who he is and what he stands for.

 

Hundreds of supporters of Tommy Robinson filled the streets of London on Saturday in protest against his arrest in Leeds on Friday, but it was not until shortly after midnight on Monday that the Daily Mail posted a report about the protest on its website. The story, which was unsigned, was updated on early Monday afternoon. How to explain the delay? Did the Daily Mail’s lawyers have to check with the British government, which had placed a gag order on reporting about the arrest, to make sure that it was permissible to report on the protest, if not directly on the arrest itself?

 

The Mail made sure to describe the hundreds of protesters as “far-right.” How did the Mail ascertain their politics? Does it not occur to the Mail that even if Robinson were far-right, which he is not, a British subject would not have to be far right to want to take in a protest against his shockingly rapid-fire arrest, trial, conviction, and imprisonment for the sole offense of reporting from outside a courthouse?

 

The Evening Standard also reported on the protest – and also labeled the participants “far-right.” “The incident,” wrote the Standard ‘s Tom Powell, “has triggered a furious reaction from his fans.” In fact, it seems fair to say that the incident has shocked, outraged, and scared people around the world who, until now, had thought of the United Kingdom as a free country.

In America, for example, Robert Spencer warned that “the darkness of Sharia-compliant totalitarianism descends upon the UK.” Thomas Lifson asked:

 

“Is Britain lost to the ranks of free nations? The land that bequeathed the world the Magna Carta and the ‘mother of parliaments’ is indulging in totalitarianism with its handling of Tommy Robinson, a famous political activist agitating about the threat of radical Islam, and attempting to report on the trial of a Muslim ‘grooming gang’ that allegedly preyed on young English girls, forcing them into prostitution.”

 

In the Netherlands, Geert Wilders declared solidarity with Robinson: “Britain used to be a bastion of free speech. Today its leaders are behaving like North Korea and Saudi Arabia.”

 

At least the Mail and Standard ran stories about the protests. Other major British dailies did not. The Metro website, for its part, posted a story that made the Mail look objective: “The controversial nationalist and far-right commentator, real name Stephen Lennon, was posing as a ‘reporter’ when police officers approached him,” wrote Olivia Waring in a piece headlined “Why Was Tommy Robinson Arrested?” In fact, Robinson was not “posing” as anything – he is a citizen journalist who at the time of his arrest was being watched live on Facebook by supporters around the world. Waring went on say that Robinson’s supporters “abide by slogans like ‘White Lives Matter.'” She also mentioned that Robin was a founder of the English Defence League, but omitted to acknowledge that he left the organization after it adopted a racist line of which he could not approve. In any event, Waring’s piece did not even pretend to answer the question posed in the title, leaving the reader to wonder exactly who is, in fact, posing as a reporter.

 

Whereas Robinson was arrested for “breaching the peace” – “apparently British police code for ‘offending Islam,'” noted Spencer wryly – and was immediately thereafter found guilty of “contempt of court” and hustled off to the hoosegow, the savages whose case he was covering have apparently been on trial for several weeks now. They face multiple charges, including rape, racially aggravated assault, and inciting a child into prostitution. One of the defendants is accused of fifty-one separate counts, including twenty-one counts of rape. During the weeks of their trial they have, of course, had legal representation and have apparently been allowed to go home at night. Meanwhile Robinson’s attorneys were apparently unable to contact him in the first hours and days after his arrest.

 

Finally, on Tuesday, in response to complaints by the British media, the gag order on reporting news about the Robinson case was lifted. Presumably this counts as a modest recovery for freedom of the press in Britain. Meanwhile, Robinson remains in jail for daring to exercise his free speech, and what the mainstream media have won back is the right to resume repeating their lockstep lies about who he is and what he stand[s] for.

Geert Wilders Stands Up for Tommy Robinson

On 5/27/18 I posted about Tommy Robinson being arrested outside of Leeds Court in the UK merely for showing a light on 29 Muslims involved in rape, trafficking, pedophilia and grooming for this godless enterprise.

 

I was then quite pleased in one Counterjihad heroes – Geert Wilders – stood outside the UK Embassy located in the Netherlands and gave a rousing moment of Robinson.

UK’s Sharia Compliant Government Just Gave Tommy Robinson a Death Sentence


In Multiculturalist Europe, protecting the image of counter-culture Muslims is more important than any Free Speech exposing the true nature of Islam. Tommy Robinson has frequently experienced this Multiculturalist idiocy by being arrested for accused hate-speech matters that purely exposed Islam. RECENTLY, Robinson was arrested this time for live streaming a report outside a British legal institution highlighting the trial of some rapist Muslims.

 

The Brits are even telling UK Media outlets to remove news pieces related to how these Muslims raped non-Muslim Brits.

 

Below is the best rendition I found on the UK government preventing Tommy Robinson’s Free Speech expressing his disgust for 29 Muslim defendants in the rape/grooming trial in Leeds Court UK.

UK’s Sharia Compliant Government Just Gave Tommy Robinson a Death Sentence

***[Blog Editor: IWB posts a couple of get to know Tommy Robinson videos in case you don’t know who he is. However, I’m moving those to the end of the story because the story is what I’m interested in.]

 

To make a long story short, Tommy Robinson is an English guy born and raised in Luton, a city in the UK which has a predominantly Muslim population. He’s the former leader of the English Defense League, later on turned independent journalist, and he was persecuted (actually bankrupted) by his own government for daring to speak out about the UK’s Muslim issue, the likes of grooming gangs/rapes, pedophilia, Islamic terrorism, radical Islam thought at local mosques by Wahabist  Imams from Saudi Arabia and so forth and so on. Just watch the videos, they’re mind-blowing .

 

Getting back to today’s news, Tommy Robinson was arrested outside of a courthouse in Leeds on Friday, tried and sentenced within just one hour. The sentence? 13 months in jail. His crime? He livestreamed on social media from outside the courthouse  as he was confronting a number of Muslim defendants (a gang of 29) as they were entering the building to face trial over rape/child-sex abuse accusations. Tommy and his producer were streaming live-video from the scene when they were arrested by British police for incitement and breach of peace, whatever that means in the UK nowadays.

 

 

Russia Today (those crazy Russians again) spoke with Tommy Robinson’s producer Caolan Robertson about the incident that took place outside of  of Leeds Crown Court . Robertson was quoted as saying:

 

“Their case has been going on for about a year. Tommy had all the publicly available information… and on that live stream he repeated the information that was already public. We were very careful with language [as to not risk being held in contempt of court].”

 

As the Muslim gang was confronted by Tommy, they reacted violently before British police officers arrived at the scene and arrested the reporter. All Robinson did was to walk near the alleged child-rapists , trying to squeeze a comment from them. Robinson and 2 of his crew-members were the only members of the media present at the court, and that tells a lot about  how Sharia compliant the mainstream media in the UK really is. Seven police officers descended from a van and ordered Robinson to stop the live streaming, as in their view, reporting from outside a court house makes for breach of peace and incitement.

 

The 29 Muslims are accused of child-abuse , rape and trafficking against 18 people, including girls aged between 11 and 17.

 

Robinson was charged with “breaching the peace”,  which can cover basically anything the corrupt authorities want it to. I never thought that I would have to watch civilization fall.  His supporters need to band together and protest until he’s released. He was reporting on child rapists and this is what he gets:

Why a death sentence? Well, most probably, Tommy Robinson will be placed together with the general prison population, and the prisons in the UK are dominated by Muslim gangs. Obviously, they can’t wait to kill him if given the opportunity.

 

These are dark days for England. Traitors in your own government have sold you out to 14th century throwbacks. You, men of England, where the hell are you? It’s time to stand up.

 

Tommy Robinson has given up everything to defend  freedom and peace from a dangerous “religion” that inspires terror and crime at every level of society. He’s put his money where his mouth is and proven he is one hell of a man. I feel the same way he does, the one big difference is he’s willing to sacrifice in a way I can’t.

In the early morning of 25.05.2018 Tommy Robinson was live streaming the court verdict of Islamic grooming gangs. This was reason enough for the police to silence him by intimidation and unlawful arrest!

 

The UK is an Orwellian police state, addressing the problems is now an offence as our government no longer represents us, we the people are grossly offended and this type of persecution cannot be tolerated!

 

We the people must write to our MPs, elect those whom will represent us and most of all attend Speakers Corners on Sunday and other events across the UK! READ THE REST

 

England descends into a Muslim hellhole where a man can be arrested for merely covering the trial of Muslim rape gangs. The Sharia police claimed that Robinson breached the peace, but this of course is an obvious lie. This is what you get with Muslim immigration, even in a country as great as England once was.

Bible Banning Despite 1st Amendment


John R. Houk

© April 24, 2018

 

I have been seeing Social Media posts claiming California has legislation in the works to ban the Bible. I chalked the information up to Fake News or maybe – cough – Russian bots trying to rile up Conservative Values supporters.

 

After all, how in the world can secularist and/or atheist Lefties believe they can get away with such a huge violation of the First Amendment, RIGHT?

 

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. (U.S. Constitution – Amendment 1; USConstitution.net)

 

Ever heard of the book Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury? The book is one of my favorites from my Sci-Fi teen reading days. It should be bought and become required reading for every household to understand the power of State totalitarianism. The book is classic with a 1966 movie based on it AND HBO is coming out with a modern version I believe sometime in May 2018. Here is a less than a minute trailer:

Published on Jan 11, 2018

 

HBO Films presents Fahrenheit 451. In a terrifying care-free future, a young man, Guy Montag, whose job as a fireman is to burn all books, questions his actions after meeting a young girl…and begins to rebel against society. Starring Michael B. Jordan, and Michael Shannon. Coming Soon. READ THE REST

 

Perhaps the Leftist legislators will ban Fahrenheit 451 along with the Bible to make sure their citizens remain ignorant of political totalitarianism.

 

Before you pooh-pooh the idea of the California State legislators banning books, here is the Assembly Bill No. 2943 California Legislative Information published 03/23/2018 09:00 PM.

 

The Bill no where mentions the Bible or the morality of the Christian Faith. However, using commercial practices as a pretext AB 2943 declares all things associated with the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) lifestyle is a part of the natural order of existence. Thus, the law prohibits any action to change the LGBTQ lifestyle as illegal. I was going to cross post the entirety of AB 2943, then I realized after copying the Act to a separate Word Document that consumed 18 pages, the reading would be a bit mundane. Here is a relevant excerpt affecting Freedom:

 

AB 2943, as amended, Low. Unlawful business practices: sexual orientation change efforts.

 

 

This bill would include, as an unlawful practice prohibited under the Consumer Legal Remedies Act, advertising, offering to engage in, or engaging in sexual orientation change efforts with an individual. The bill would also declare the intent of the Legislature in this regard.

 

 

SECTION 1.

 

The Legislature finds and declares the following:

 

(a) Contemporary science recognizes that being lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender is part of the natural spectrum of human identity and is not a disease, disorder, or illness.

 

(b) The American Psychological Association convened the Task Force on Appropriate Therapeutic Responses to Sexual Orientation. The task force conducted a systematic review of peer-reviewed journal literature on sexual orientation change efforts and issued a report in 2009. The task force concluded that sexual orientation change efforts can pose critical health risks to lesbian, gay, and bisexual people, including confusion, depression, guilt, helplessness, hopelessness, shame, social withdrawal, suicidality, substance abuse, stress, disappointment, self-blame, decreased self-esteem and authenticity to others, increased self-hatred, hostility and blame toward parents, feelings of anger and betrayal, loss of friends and potential romantic partners, problems in sexual and emotional intimacy, sexual dysfunction, high-risk sexual behaviors, a feeling of being dehumanized and untrue to self, a loss of faith, and a sense of having wasted time and resources.

 

AB 2943 goes on as pertaining to the LGBTQ lifestyle, to verify LGBTQ morality protections and villainize (perhaps illegalize) Biblical Values by using numerous Leftist social organizations declaring homosexual choice as normal. You can muddle through the entire Bill to read what I mean. Just to be clear, there are some good consumer protections in the Bill pertaining to commerce. The good is heavily obscured though by the intent to make it easy to sue distributors of Christian materials – which would include the Bible – that homosexuality is natural rather an unnatural abomination as stated by the Creator of all that exists.

 

When the Leftist legislators cite all these Leftist organization that embrace the fundamental transformation of America, they don’t include the kind of people that were in charge of their reports and findings. Here are some details they conveniently left out:

 

This article first appeared in the CHRISTIAN RESEARCH JOURNAL, volume 38, number 01 (2015). The full text of this article in PDF format can be obtained by clicking here.

 

SYNOPSIS

 

“Reparative therapy,” “conversion therapy,” and “sexual orientation change efforts” (SOCE) are terms used to describe any efforts to redirect homosexual tendencies toward heterosexual behavior. These processes are strongly opposed by organizations such as the American Psychiatric Association and other counseling groups. The opposition to SOCE approaches is based on three assumptions these groups make. (1) Homosexuality is today considered a normal variant of sexual behavior and not a mental illness. (2) There are no good data to indicate that SOCE approaches have been successful. (3) Traditional religious prohibitions about homosexual behavior are outmoded and need to be revised to be in accordance with modern science. Proponents of SOCE argue that there have been many successes in changing homosexual behavior and desires in a number of individuals. [Bold text by Blog Editor]

 

Professional groups argue that there are no good peer- reviewed studies, but also prohibit their members from being involved in these studies. Policy statements attacking these treatments are not written by an unbiased group; one major statement was written by a team that (with one exception) were all homosexual or bisexual, with all members of the team being well-known homosexual activists.  …

 

 

A 2009 report issued by the American Psychological Association8 restated the organization’s opposition to SOCE efforts and left the impression that this was an impartial and unbiased report. The truth is far different: of the seven members on the task force, five were openly homosexual, one was bisexual, and all seven were active in the “gay rights” movement.9 The composition of the group created an obvious and overwhelming bias toward a homosexual-friendly report. Appropriate Therapeutic Responses dismisses any religious considerations, looks only at peer-reviewed literature that supports their position, and recommends only therapy that encourages acceptance of homosexual behavior.

This is NOT FAKE NEWS: California Pushing Bill to Ban Sale of Bibles (Video)

 

By GERI UNGUREAN

Absolute Truth from the Word of God

 

Not only are California legislators pushing the bill to ban the sale of Bibles, they are also targeting any Christian books which speak against homosexuality and how to overcome the urges of that lifestyle.

 

From 1.cbn.com

 

One Step Closer to Law: Could a California Bill Ultimately Lead to the Banning of Bibles?

 

VIDEO: URGENT! CALIFORNIA PUSHES BILL TO BAN THE BIBLE AND MATERIAL THAT STATES HOMOSEXUALITY IS A SIN!!!

 

Posted by Salt of the Earth 777

Published on Apr 20, 2018

 

California bill would criminalize the sale of Bibles and material considered to be offensive to the homosexual community.

 

A pro-LGBTQ bill is quickly making its way through the California state assembly after it was approved on the floor Thursday. The bill now goes to the state Senate for a vote.

 

If passed, Assembly Bill 2943 could ultimately threaten free speech and freedom of religion for Christians.

 

It uses the state’s consumer fraud statute to restrict religious freedom and free speech when it comes to issues of homosexuality and gender identity.

 

This means the bill would make it illegal to distribute resources, sell books, offer counseling services, or direct someone to a biblically based model for getting help with gender confusion and homosexuality.

 

Randy Thomasson with SaveCalifornia.com says the bill is very broad and could affect just about anything helping people overcome same-sex desires.

 

“So, this is a pastor speaking, you pay a ticket to hear him speak. He speaks about overcoming same-sex desires. Hey, that could be outlawed. A church sells a book about overcoming same-sex desires. There’s a sale, there’s a transaction, that could be banned,” Thomasson said.

 

“This is very expansive, very tyrannical and absolutely squashing free speech, religious freedom and basic choice of people. This is an anti-freedom, anti-American bill,” Thomasson told CBN News.

 

Essentially, churches and Christian schools that share biblical teaching on the subject would be open to a lawsuit.

 

CBN News asked Thomasson if this bill could eventually lead to a ban on Bibles or even books from other faiths like the Koran.

 

“Well, you could see this law going into effect. A church bookstore selling the Bible, of course, selling a book about marriage or sexual purity or overcoming homosexuality or overcoming trans-sexuality. You could see a member of the public or even a member of the state government coming and saying, ‘Hey, that’s illegal,’” Thomasson answered.

 

“Even the Muslim community should be against this, too, because of what is said about sexual perversity in the Koran,” Thomasson also said.

 

If AB 2943 clears California’s Senate and is signed into law, it would negatively impact Christian counselors, bookstores, church conferences, as well as medical and health professionals.

 

The bill also seeks to ban biblically based counseling for those wanting to get help.

 

It comes six years after California deemed it illegal for minors to receive counseling for same-sex attraction, even if they and their parents wanted help. Now, this bill would also address adults.

 

“AB 2943 would start by saying, ok, nobody can get counseling to overcome same-sex desires… ok, so no help for adult children, adults who were molested as kids and now they are adults and they say I want help to overcome these feelings. No help for you,” Thomasson explained.

 

The bill states that “contemporary science recognizes that being lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender is part of the natural spectrum of human identity and is not a disease, disorder, or illness.”

 

Mat Staver, founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel, told CBN News that what makes this bill especially dangerous is that California often leads the charge in pushing the LGBTQ legislative agenda.

 

California was one of the first states to ban “conversion therapy” for minors. Shortly afterward, Oregon, New Jersey, and Vermont passed similar laws.

 

“People have the right to seek the counsel of their choice, but this bill substitutes the government for personal choice. The implications are staggering, and the result is harmful,” Staver said in a statement to CBN News. – source

 

So, will they ban the Qur’an as well??

 

Come Lord Jesus!
