FUCK ISIS SIGN = INCITING RACIAL HATRED
Stephen Yaxley-Lennon (born 27 November 1982), known by the pseudonym Tommy Robinson and also going by the names Andrew McMaster and Paul Harris, is the co-founder and former spokesman and leader of the English Defence League (EDL) “street protest” movement.
The EDL is constantly and wrongfully criticized as being racist for standing up against radical islam. Visit their Facebook page.
They demonstrate against the refugee influx and the exodus of islam all the time.
Police have charged Tommy Robinson, with “inciting racial hatred against Muslims” after he was pictured with a flag with “Fuck ISIS” written on it, his lawyer has claimed.
The lawyer alleged in a statement that an application for a football banning order against Mr. Robinson was “brought on the basis of a harassment campaign” linked to his “high social media profile, and is associated with Pegida UK” and amounted to an attack on his “free speech”.
ROBINSON IS BANNED AND WAS SERVED THIS PAPER
Lawyer, Alison Gurden, Says Her Client Tommy Robinson Was Not “Inciting Racial Hatred”
My Client, known as Tommy Robinson, has been served with an application for a football banning order by Chief Constable of Bedfordshire Police. The main purpose of Bedfordshire Police serving this football banning order was to prevent Tommy Robinson from traveling to France for the Euros. Following an application to the Court, the court has now seen fit to remove that draconian restriction on his liberty.
However Bedfordshire Police persist in making the civil football banning order application, and this application will be heard by the court in September 2016. Tommy Robinson will contest this application.
The mainstay of the application by Bedfordshire Police is that Tommy Robinson, while in France was pictured wearing an Anti ISIS T Shirt, and holding up an English Saint George Cross flag with ‘Fuck ISIS’ written across it, and that this was aimed at inciting racial hatred against muslims. Both I and my client are very concerned that the Chief Constable of Bedfordshire Police and the UK Football Policing Unit have equated Tommy Robinson’s demonstration against a banned extremist terrorist organisation as being the same as showing hatred towards people of the muslim faith.
Tommy Robinson Has Been Attacked By Muslims Before
This past April, long after Robinson’s release from prison, he was attacked by a Muslim who asked Robinson whether he was a racist, to which Robinson replied that he did not like Islam. The Muslim man proceeded to slap Robinson’s phone out of his hand and allegedly punched him in the face repeatedly, while demanding to know why Robinson did not like Islam.
Robinson shouted: “I’ll say what I want… you’re in England, if someone wants to say something about your religion… your religion says stuff about me as a non-Muslim”.
Whatever anyone might think of his character and style, Robinson is correct about that. He openly declared that he is living in Britain under a free, democratic constitution; not under Sharia law, which forbids free speech and which sanctions the worst forms of human rights abuses under its penal code.
Unfortunately, there are those far leftists in the West who apparently are living under a kind of self-imposed Sharia: they will not dare criticize Islam even when criticism is warranted. Robinson is rightfully resisting the dhimmitude that leftists have embraced for themselves and seek to impose on others.
