AFC Newsletter - June 9, 2018
"When the will defies fear,
when duty throws the gauntlet down to fate,
when honour scorns to compromise with death -
that is heroism"
We dedicate this newsletter to Tommy Robinson, who may rightly be called the spiritual leader of the Free World. We are praying for Tommy's release from prison because we recognize in Tommy a man of outstanding courage, vision, self-sacrifice, dedication, and principle.
Tommy has given his life to saving England from Islamism. He has given his life to keeping young girls safe from Muslim rape gangs. He has given his life to keeping alive the England that once was and may be again, the England of individual rights, moderation, sanity, decency, and freedom.
In return, he has been reviled, attacked, persecuted, threatened, and imprisoned.
Yet he has not given up.
Tommy, you are our hope in these terrifying and bleak times. You are our Lion. We stand with you in love and solidarity.
March for Tommy Robinson London June 9th 2018 - Silence Is Surrender - Never Surrender
This very powerful 2 minute video illustrates the mood of Britain.
London: Massive Crowds Gather to Hear Geert Wilders Demand Tommy Robinson's Release
"Tommy Robinson is the greatest freedom fighter of Britain today. Tommy Robinson is a freedom fighter. He says what no-one dares to say. He has guts. He has courage. "And that is more than we can say for all those people that govern us. Because our governors sold us out with mass immigration, with Islamisation, with open borders. We are almost foreigners in our own land," he declared.
Maajid Nawaz's Unique View on Tommy Robinson's Arrest
Tommy Robinson 'Disappears': Free Speech in England Is Dead
If gangs of white men had spent decades torturing and raping little Muslim girls and a justly outraged Muslim reporter were covering the case, in a similar manner as Robinson, would he be arrested? We all know that the answer is "no," and we know why. The U.K. is so invested in its politically correct multiculturalism diversity project that it has applied a different treatment of Muslims under the law, which accepts the diversity of legal systems and places the country on a path toward ruin.
Tommy Robinson's Arrest Points to Britain's National Suicide
Bullets and bombs are deadly, but they were never enough to defeat the heart and wherewithal of the United Kingdom. Rather, it is leftist lies that are destroying Britain. Lies that say all cultures are equal, borders are irrelevant, Islamist values are consistent with western values, and that free speech does not include what some deem to be hate speech. Along with its European allies, Britain has chosen submission over strength and tyranny over truth. The result has been the self-destruction of one of the greatest nations in the world.
The Martyrdom of Tommy Robinson
Whatever crime Robinson may have committed on paper, everyone with eyes to see knows that the real crimes for which he is being punished are these: being white working class; speaking home truths about the problems posed to social cohesion in Britain by Islam when the Establishment's position remains that this is impolite and that we should all bury our heads in the sand and pretend that those problems don't exist. So long as this state of affairs continues, the gulf between ordinary people and the political elite is going to grow and grow. It's the kind of rift from which revolutions emerge. Tommy Robinson is already the people's hero. If he becomes the people's martyr too, then it will be a mistake the Establishment most certainly comes to regret.

Notes from the Cassandra Society
by John Thompson
Protest and a Croissant: Notes from the Cassandra Society
One regrets to notice that one of two of the protestors in Toronto who were demonstrating for Free Speech and the release of Tommy Robinson committed a real faux pas right afterwards. It is said, alas, that they deliberately resorted to an Aroma Coffee Bar down the street, notwithstanding the BDS fliers that call on all people of conscience to avoid the franchise's outlets. It seems that Aroma is... oh, the horror... an Israeli-based business. Having coffee at Aroma, voting Conservative in Ontario, being worried about freedom of speech... Islamophobia is so blatant these days!
Justin Trudeau's Canada: Groping for Direction
It has been a curious spring of discontent for Canadian Liberals and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. The Liberals have fallen behind in the polls, and Trudeau is no longer a Teflon telegenic global political rock star. Some of the problems reflect the differences between the plethora of promises made and the paucity of promises kept. Still, Liberals don't face election until October 2019, and the odds are greater that it is a mid-mandate malaise than a harbinger that Trudeau will be a one-term prime minister.
Toronto buying four prefabricated structures as demand for emergency shelters surges
The city is purchasing four "highly sophisticated," temporary structures as demand for emergency shelter and 24/7 respite sites remains high. The four prefabricated structures, manufactured by Canadian company Sprung Instant Structures Limited, cost $2.5 million each, which does not include the cost to operate them. They are meant to serve as temporary sites where anyone in sudden need of a place to stay can rest, access food, showers and support services.
Quiggin Report #11 - Dawah At City Council: The Islamist At The Gate
It is interesting that the Toronto City Hall would allow this to happen, as it appears to be a clear violation of a Supreme Court of Canada ruling on exactly this sort of issue. The Supreme Court decision, based on a city hall case in Quebec, ruled that the state must be neutral and "This neutrality requires that the state neither favour nor hinder any particular belief."
Freedom of Speech
Political Correctness: The Enemy of Free Speech
The problem with political correctness is not in opposing offensive words, but rather in trying to silence different worldviews, especially Christian and conservative beliefs. When political correctness seeks ideological conformity, it becomes a form of tyranny. The chief error of political correctness is that if an idea is offensive to someone, it must be wrong. In reality, when people believe something that is false, the truth can sometimes offend them. The only way to combat political correctness is by exercising one's right to free speech. In the marketplace of ideas, the truth-if it is not silenced-will eventually defeat falsehood.
Tommy Robinson and 1984
Examples of today's thought police would be Hope Not Hate and Tell Mama. Their scouts scour Speakers' Corner with cameras, taking pictures of people and sending them through facial recognition devices to find out who they are and what they've been up to in their lives. The scouts turn up at any and all alleged right-wing events with their cameras, again looking for new faces, collecting and collating and keeping data on people.
Mocking Islam Is Not Allowed Because Islam Forbids It
In Europe, laughter used to be forbidden - by the Inquisition, in the 20th century the fascists abolished cabaret and the communists were sending enthusiasts of political satire to the gulags. Today people mocking Islam lose career opportunities and the proponents of punishing blasphemers are greeted with honours. No mocking Islam because it has no sense of humour.
Europe's Vanishing Calm
Free speech is increasing problematic. It is more dangerous for a European citizen to publicly object to illegal immigration than for a foreigner to enter Europe illegally. Elites preach the idea of open borders. But people on the street concede that they have no way of assimilating millions of immigrants from the Middle East into European culture. Most come illegally, en masse, and without the education or skills to integrate successfully.
No, Islamophobia is not the new anti-Semitism
It is the definition of historical illiteracy to compare Islamophobia to anti-Semitism. And yet that is what is happening. People who feel put out by the discussion of anti-Semitism in the Labour Party, and possibly even envious of the attention that anti-Jewish prejudice is receiving in comparison with anti-Muslim prejudice, have taken to saying: 'What about the cancer of Islamophobia in the Conservative Party? When are we talking about that?' They fail to realise the fundamental difference between anti-Semitism and Islamophobia: the former is one of the world's oldest hatreds and has caused the deaths of millions of people; the latter is a word invented by the Runnymede Trust in 1997 to demonise criticism of Islam.
Left: peaceful man jailed sentenced to 10 years and 1000 lashes for just expressing his opinion. Right: Saudi preacher raped and tortured his 5 year old daughter to death jailed only for 3 years, and now he is free!! RT if you are shocked
Facebook, Amazon, Google and Twitter
Facebook, Amazon, Google and Twitter All Work With Hate Group SPLC
The SPLC is helping Facebook, Twitter, Amazon and Google decide what groups are hate groups - and therefore, what groups shouldn't be allowed a presence on the respective sites. It's censorship, pure and simple. And the SPLC and the social media outlets are selling it as a service to society.
Google's New Slogan
About 4,000 Google employees signed a petition demanding 'a clear policy stating that neither Google nor its contractors will ever build warfare technology. The United States has been the greatest force for liberty and goodness in world history. It has been so by modeling a free society and through the power of the idea of freedom, and even more so by force - brute physical force. Only a moral idiot does not understand the moral necessity of weapons of war being in the hands of decent countries.
How to defeat ISIS's next play
Social-media platforms enabled these groups to reach their target audience. Facebook, Google, Twitter and others must work more quickly to take down extremist content whose only purpose is to radicalize other users. There will always be individuals in the West who are vulnerable to the siren song of jihadist groups that leverage the intersection of personal vulnerabilities, a binary vision of the West vs. Islam and the heroic ideal of the "just and holy warrior."
Imam banned from Facebook for mocking Hamas and "peaceful Palestinian protests"
Anyone, including Muslims who state the truth about the global jihad - and about how Westerners are kowtowing to this evil - is deemed to be "racist," "intolerant" and the like, yet Sharia is the most intolerant ideology imaginable. Imam Tawhidi has built a following online as the "Imam of Peace," a critic of extremist Islam and their allies on the political left, as well as a critic of the mainstream media for their overly-sympathetic coverage of radical Islam.
How We Are Going to Absolutely Smash ANTIFA
Antifa tried to shut us down, but failed. We fight for freedom of speech and against the totalitarian PC state, enacting Islamic blasphemy laws. Whether here, in the UK or elsewhere, freedom of expression is a universal human right. We pay our politicians, police and judiciary to uphold and defend this basic human right, not to suppress it and persecute those who speak out about a perverse ideology.
"Antifa" show their true colours in Lewisham
A group calling itself the "South London Anti-Fascists" organized a meeting this week to plot the disruption of my campaign in Lewisham, and to deny me (and voters) our democratic right to free speech and open debate. The reason for this is of course obvious; they can't allow open debate, or my voice to be heard, simply because they cannot answer me. They have no response to the facts that I state and they know that if the public were to hear For Britain's message, vast numbers would agree with us. So instead of honest debate, they opt for intimidation and censorship.

Austria to close 7 mosques, expel imams in crackdown on "political Islam" and foreign financing of mosques
Austria's government is closing seven mosques and plans to expel imams in a crackdown on "political Islam" and foreign financing of mosques.Choosing national security over socialist internationalism and politically correct posturing. Bravo.
Migrants moved to wealthy Paris neighbourhood, what do locals think?
Thousands of migrants in Paris are being cleared from their make-shift shelters along the city's canals. Roughly 200 of them have been resettled in a wealthy district in the French capital. Charlotte Dubenskij went to find out what the residents thought about their new neighbours.
Angela Merkel is accused of 'importing Islamists, rapists, murderers and terrorists'
Gottfried Curio, a member of the opposition Alternative for Germany from Berlin, urged Mrs Merkel to resign, adding: 'Your abdication of any control of a flood of a million illegal immigrants has caused Germany the most serious harm, future costs of hundreds of billions, asylum and social benefits fraud, the import of dangerous Islamists, endless human suffering through rapists and murders, knife-wielders and terrorists.

BOMBSHELL: Obama Admin. gave Iran access to U.S. financial system in 2016, repeatedly lied it
The bottom line is that Iran is a terrorist-sponsoring, criminal regime seeking to develop nuclear weapons for its own nefarious purposes, and the sanctions in place prior to Obama's and Kerry's deal were designed to make it harder for them to do this. Obama and Kerry did not like the fact that the U.S. had a hostile relationship with Iran, and came to the mad mullahs bearing gifts designed to earn their goodwill in exchange for very thin and temporary promises that couldn't even be inspected or verified. And now we learn that Obama and Kerry did far more for their friends in Tehran than they were even willing to admit.
Check out this map of arson fires in Israel
While the United Nations is busy trying to pass resolutions condemning Israel for defending its borders, the U.S. could not get a single other member of the Security Council to vote for a resolution condemning the arsonist attacks from Hamas, which rules the Gaza Strip. Meanwhile, Gaza, which gets electricity, natural gas, and shipments of supplies from Israel, continues to attack Israel.
Italy: "The Party is Over" for Illegal Migrants
"The party is over for illegal immigrants," Salvini said at a June 2 rally in Vicenza. "They will have to pack their bags, in a polite and calm manner, but they will have to go. Refugees escaping from war are welcome, but all others must leave." "Enough of Sicily being the refugee camp of Europe. I will not stand by and do nothing while there are landings after landings of migrants. We need deportation centres."There are not enough homes or jobs for Italians, let alone for half the African continent. We need to use common sense."
Turkey Turns On Its Christians
On December 28, 2016 in the western province of Aydin, the ultra-nationalist Islamist group Alperen Hearths staged a forced conversion of Santa Claus to Islam, putting a gun to the head of an actor dressed as Santa Claus. "Our purpose is for people to go back to their roots. We are the Muslim Turkish people who have been leading Islam for thousands of years. We will not celebrate Christian traditions and disregard our own traditions like Hıdrellez, Nevruz, and other religious national holidays."
A Month of Islam and Multiculturalism in Britain: May 2018
Melanie Phillips, a conservative columnist, ignited a firestorm of criticism after she said on BBC TV's Sunday Politics that there is no equivalence between anti-Semitism and Islamophobia: "Anti-Semitism is not just a form of racism, it is a unique derangement that is based entirely on lies and demonization. The same cannot be said of what is considered Islamophobia. The term Islamophobia itself is used to cover-up legitimate criticism of Muslims or the Islamic community."
Nine in 10 crimes in Britain are NEVER solved, as police hunt for online "islamophobia"
The UK banned me from entering the UK for fear Muslims would violently riot. But they allow hate preachers and radical imams to come in regularly and incite to jihad. Meanwhile, as crime skyrockets and most crimes, as we see from this report, are never solved, London Mayor Sadiq Khan and other officials in the UK are devoting valuable police resources to hunting for online "islamophobic hate crimes." That's their priority, not solving murder or rape or arson cases. The British authorities have surrendered the freedom of their people to the most extreme, brutal and intolerant ideology on the face of the earth.
Marching for Terrorism in London? No Problem
In the UK, calling for the annihilation of an entire people - the Jews - as well as blood libeling and inciting against British Jews is not considered "inciting racial or religious hatred" and apparently does not even lead to charges. British authorities apparently consider marching with terrorist flags while calling for the death of Jews a legitimate activity. An afternoon of racism is in store for Londoners on Sunday, but as long as the hate is directed against Jews by Muslims, British authorities apparently have no problem with it.
Estate of Muslim who plotted to behead Pamela Geller sues government over his fatal shooting
Usaamah Rahim and two other men were accused of participating in a plot to behead conservative blogger Pamela Geller, who angered Muslims by organizing a Prophet Muhammad cartoon contest in Garland, Texas, in 2015. The plot was not carried out. The estate of the Boston man who was shot to death by a city police detective and an FBI agent in 2015 during a terrorism investigation is suing the federal government for $5 million on wrongful death allegations. As the Muslim victimhood industry kicks into high gear, it gets more and more absurd.
Iftar 2018: Get Me Rewrite
CAIR and MSNA, as well as the usual free range suspects such as Linda Sarsour, were furious that they were not invited to the White House Iftar. But what did they expect? They are all continuous and vicious critics of Trump, denouncing him at every turn, and they had already announced that if invited to his Iftar Dinner, they would refuse to attend. Why should the White House have invited those whom it already knew would then reject the invitation and, further, would exploit the occasion of their refusal to publicly denounce Trump yet again for his "Muslim ban," his moving the embassy to Jerusalem, and all his other acts of supposed "islamophobia"?
Wolves in Sheep's Clothing by Bruce Bawer
Increasingly, all over the West, Muslims hold elected positions, some of them at a very high level. It is considered to be racist, or at the very least to be in terribly bad taste, to question whether they can be loyal at once to their totalizing, all-encompassing religion and to their officially secular country and its (still) mostly non-Muslim inhabitants. Once those politicians are caught engaging in taqiyya, of course, there is no further reason for doubt on this score.
UK's Independent laments: "Far-right nationalists are winning elections or gaining new ground across Europe"
The nonsensical label of "far right" to describe those who are trying to keep the West safe from the ravages of the Hijrah - which are evident across Europe - is absurd. Most of the accusations against the "far right" are exaggerated and/or taken out of context, while simultaneously the media exonerates leftist leaders and even aids their project of the destruction of Western democracies in order to advance a utopian globalist agenda. From Hungary to France, far-right nationalists are winning elections or gaining new ground across Europe.
Desperate Times Call for Desperate Measures By David Solway
The battle for the nation's survival as a constitutional republic cannot be won until the domestic Left is torn root and branch from the body politic. As David Horowitz writes, "It would be a healthy development for everyone, rich and poor alike, if future generations put Karl Marx's manifesto on the same sinister shelf as Mein Kampf and other destructive products of the human soul." The president is sworn by his oath of office to "support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic." And the domestic enemy is now arguably far more menacing than the external foe.
Islamic Anti-Semitism is Really Islamic Imperialism
10% of the Jewish citizens of Île-de-France - that is to say about 50,000 people - were recently forced to move because they were no longer safe in some cities and because their children could not attend the schools of the Republic. This is a quiet ethnic cleansing being carried out in in the country of Emile Zola and Clemenceau.

Reflecting Upon D-Day and the Present Danger to Freedom
There are few left today who were there, but the memories have been passed on, and the world dare not forget those who lost their lives on the beaches of Normandy on that day. Those brave men gave their lives that freedom could survive, and that others would be freed from tyranny.
