We await, with bated breath, your repudiation of the accuracy of the linked piece, specifically that Yaxley-Lennon has twice been convicted of assault.

The Conspiracy Theories section is here.
Perhaps you could post your nonsensical ramblings there?

This. Like most of the conspiracy peddlers it's all about his own ego and opportunity for gain from the dumb.

Tommy is a God damn hero. Standing up for and giving a voice to violent white racist thugs who are being discriminated against when it comes to jobs and opportunities solely on the grounds of being uneducated, unskilled scum.

Wrong, he has bounced around various issues over the years and was recently active in his campaigns about CSE and freedom of speech.

whose activism is non-violent.
His previous convictions for assault and the regular disturbances that his followers cause prove your claims is wrong.

I don't like him because he is a career criminal who liked to whip up hatred and anger, as he tries to make as much money for himself as possible. Though his £900k home is apparently on the market due to a drop in his earnings.

As a Yank who has only followed this story peripherally : do you have links handy to videos or articles about the above? Not asking as a challenge, I'm honestly curious. I'd heard about the passport incident and football brawls, but again since I've never really delved into it I hadn't heard of the 'punch because I disagree' bit and I'm assuming a random Googling would land me on sites heavily biased one way or the other.

This is the first one that pops up.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ozbt5BjXyTE

and there's this:

https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/578701...an-no-go-zone/

There are others.

Many of the other are in response to deadly milkshake attacks, so they are subtly different in nature. (Nobody should throw anything at anyone, no matter how much of a nazi the other might thing their target is)

Thanks for those.

A criticism I noticed of that first vid was how the uploaded version supposedly omitted whatever it was which led up to the posted part (did seem there was some significant backstory missing). But unless that part included the punchee attacking TR first then it looks like the sort of unwarranted escalation I'd decried in the 'punch a Nazi' threads - force in response to words. Commenters claim the punchee had been harassing TR and family for a while in the omitted part. Even if true unless that harassment involved actual threats, then again we're at unwarranted escalation. At least IMO

I don't have enough info to have an opinion on the case against him itself (or the man's stance on wider issues), but so far it looks like he's most likely the sort of person who prefers to speak with fists, and the sort one really wouldn't want on one's side of any issue (other than maybe "what's the best street brawling fighting style?").

I can't remember claiming to oppose any of those stances. Which doesn't mean I do endorse them. Like defending "Tommy" against the incredibly vicious treatment he got from the UK system doesn't mean I endorse his politics. It's actually worse. Me watching "the enemy" shows me totalitarian tactics they are treated with. Watch his speech at Oxford University (mentioned in the interview I've linked) if you still fail to comprehend;

I very rarely see people argue that Christianity is the cause of Catholic pedophiles or Evangelical terrorists ...

Yeah poor old Tommy is a innocent victim of the very very evil west. There is no freedom of speech there, only in Russia can the truth be told. Only someone like Putin can tell the world that in sick degenerate west they allow rapefugees to rape and murder with impunity. In the UK saying this truth is illegal!

The charges weren't trumped up, he clearly was in contempt of court.

How do you define "hardcore" criminals, is it people in prison for say assaulting other people?

Also why would other criminals be wanting to specifically kill him?

And how do you know where he will serve his sentence?

Tommy Robinson has spent around 20% of his adult life being incarcerated; I'm sure that he'll be able to cope.

Once again amused that CE, who is on the far left of the political spectrum by any standards, is always defending right wing extremists.

If the very very evil British government, in cahoots with the "pre$$titutes lugenpresse", couldn't discretely kill this violent thug even though it would've had the perfect opportunity to do so I doubt they could intentionally kill him now.

I'll have to take it your claims are therefore unfounded.

Why can't you just fall for the guy's ludicrous propaganda like CE has?

"Principles". Look it up. btw the reason why the whole world is laughing at your regime hating on Iran while being BFF with Saudi-Barbaria.

Maybe he can claim asylum in Israel instead.

I support him too! Shame on Britain! Tommy is a political prisoner!
That's Benjamin Netanyahu's son coming out in support of the far-right thug.

What a backwards world we live in.

I'll say it (again?): I know people like "Tommy". Not very complex in thinking, but with a high motivation and talent to do what they think is right. I therefore take almost at face-value what he told Brittany in this interview, including how he was placed into the UK prison system in a dungeon where he had no choice but to physically hit a random Muslim (so he said it went, "who is a Muslim") because he knew that would put him in solitary confinement, away from the for-live imprisoned Islamist freaks who were threatening his life. This is real, happening in prisons all over "the West". You don't have to believe in any "Islam is evil" nonsense, and I have spoken out about that on this forum, to believe that "Tommy" has been deliberately put into live-threatening positions for his political views, not his maybe boorish manners.

Here's Tommy Robinson punching out a soccer fan this June.

https://voiceofeurope.com/2019/06/to...to-the-ground/



Tommy punching people on video is not a rare occurrence. I found 3 videos all less than 24 months old in like 2 seconds of googling.

Maybe violent, anti-social nazi douchebags shouldn't violate the terms of their contempt of court proceedings, and they won't end up in jail.

I suggest you read the ruling posted above.

Here are some highlights for you....





You really think this sounds like someone trying to enable pedophilia?

Oh dear. Seems I misread the reasons why he was jailed. Thanks for correcting me. Must try to be more careful in future.

And on the evidence subsequently provided, he does seem to be a violence and publicity addicted racist scumbag.
