The Thought Police do not like Tommy Robinson


When people like Tommy Robinson are denied a platform from which to sell their books, when big distributors such as Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Waterstone's and Fortnum & Mason refuse to stock their products, when the ability to process payments through companies like PayPal is rescinded, and when social media platforms systematically censor dissident opinions - how long will it be before those in power decide to exercise the same restraints against the rest of us?

I thought you might be interested in this. Take a look at the photograph at the bottom of this email, regarding my post on FaceBook.

It's an incredibly sinister example of how the Thought Police throughout the Western world are systematically censoring any mention of Tommy Robinson to the point where even publishing a photograph of him is deemed to be breaching "community standards."

In this instance, FaceBook have suspended my account for 30 days and removed my post, which was simply a photograph taken of me in 2017 with Tommy Robinson at a book signing event in Manchester in 2017 where he was promoting his book "Mohammed's Koran - Why Muslims Kill for Islam."

There was no political comment accompanying the photograph, no incitement to violence or mayhem, no attempt to convey anything other than my personal friendship with a brave patriot who has put his neck on the line many times in order to highlight the systematic injustices that our governments are perpetrating on the rest of us.

Tommy Robinson is the voice of the people, and if that voice is silenced, then we will all be poorer for it. We have to make a stand - now.

I urge everyone who loves freedom and democracy to rise up against this tyranny - for it is nothing less than tyranny when it becomes impossible to discuss major issues such as the threat of Islam to free societies without fear of censorship or persecution - and overthrow the shackles of political correctness that are threatening to destroy our freedoms.

We owe it to our children and grandchildren to make sure that we do everything in our power to make our fellow man aware of the dangers that await us - and we need to do it now. Tomorrow may be too late - the forces trying to shut us down are gathering momentum as I write. You will most likely be familiar with my own personal trials and tribulations which have foreshadowed this turn of events and which are documented on my website  (and also on the blog of the investigative journalist Nick Monroe) - if it can happen to me it can happen to anybody.
