A few days ago the Dutch Defence League was forced to fold after the authorities in the Netherlands told it that they could no longer guarantee the safety of the leaders of the DDL.
Last night Tommy Robinson, the leader of the English Defence League, was “fitted up” with a new set of bogus police charges. This stratagem was designed to put him out of action during the long hot summer, since the conditions of his bail included a ban on all EDL-related activities.
So this is what it has come down to in Europe. The authorities are desperate, and getting more desperate every day.
All other methods have failed, so the gloves are off, and we are seeing the police state in action. There’s no more pretense about the rule of law, no more democratic process, just straightforward totalitarian repression.
Here’s the story from the EDL website:
Continued harassment of EDL: Someone’s scared of us and the truth.
Yesterday saw the English Defence League fall victim to the regime of those in high places in a pathetic attempt to silence the truth.
Our leader, Tommy Robinson, was charged yesterday by Lancashire police over the Blackburn demonstration and by the Bedfordshire police over the local Luton demonstration against Richard Howitt.
The Blackburn demonstration was on the 2nd of April, two and a half months ago, and the Luton protest was three weeks ago, so why are the police suddenly finding reasons to charge Tommy? We’ve already seen Tommy face various trumped-up charges that have been laughed out of court, and we’ve seen the ludicrous charge against him of assaulting a police officer as the Muslim extremists burnt poppies. (If you can see anyone being assaulted here who isn’t Tommy, please get in touch — you have special powers!)
Heads are turning and the MP’s are worried about us. They know we’re right, and they know we are exposing their utter failures and incompetence by allowing Islamic extremism to prosper in the UK.
Our universities are hotbeds for extremism, taxpayer money has been given to extremist organisations, and the police have displayed nothing but appeasement toward violent and abusive Muslim extremist protesters.
These are facts and this the truth. The EDL only deal in the truth and facts. We haven’t made these problems up. We only wish we were making this up, and people weren’t being killed in the name of Islam, but sadly they are, and it must be stopped. It appears that some people in high places are trying their hardest to stop the truth being spread, and want to prevent the British public from waking up to the dangers of radical Islam.
Last week, our PayPal and eBay accounts were mysteriously closed down at similar times after many months of use with no issues.
Coincidentally, this came immediately after Tommy pointed out some facts to home secretary Theresa May about the unfair policing often seen at EDL demonstrations, such as:
- Rochdale, where many of our supporters were needlessly assaulted and attacked by police dogs whilst holding a peaceful demo.
- The policing of the counter protest to MAC’s celebration of Osama bin Laden, where EDL supporters were arrested because condemning Bin Laden ‘could cause offence’, whilst MAC were free to attack the police and celebrate the man who was responsible for thousands of deaths.
- The policing of Tommy’s court case in London, where a young girl was put into hospital by Muslim youths whilst the police watched on and allowed it to happen, before kettling the peaceful EDL demonstrators.
- On Saturday, the police force at the Dewsbury demo took it upon themselves to kettle law-abiding EDL protesters for 4 hours before forcibly moving the peaceful EDL supporters on buses to far-away Leeds, rather than nearby Batley, where all the EDL transport was waiting to take people home.
The police received full cooperation from the EDL for the Dewsbury demonstration to ensure that a safe and peaceful protest was held, only for the police to change all plans for the demo late on, making all the efforts of the EDL liaison officers pointless. This led to a warning from the EDL threatening to withdraw all cooperation for future events, unless the police started to treat us fairly and respected our rights to peacefully protest.
Unfortunately, the police decided not to heed these reasonable requests.
Therefore, because of the highly unreasonable policing on show at the weekend, and the treatment of Tommy today, the English Defence League will be coming back to Dewsbury after Tower Hamlets. What’s more, the EDL are no longer going to waste their time talking to the police, as they simply don’t stick to their word and are not to be trusted. With this, be prepared for a lot more flash demonstrations.
We will never be silenced and we will not stop until Islamic extremism is banished from our shores. It is not wanted here!
