Tommy Robinson and Our Free Speech Rights
Without free speech, we will have no other freedom. The right to communicate news and opinion, to tell stories, is essential to our liberty. Free speech is absolute. There are no degrees of free speech, no "acceptable" free speech. Will we decline to attend a rally, write a letter to the editor, voice an opinion for fear of the knock on the door in the middle of the night? Robinson has experienced this many times - jackboots, machine guns, threats to family by police supported with his taxes. He is exposed to bloodthirsty terrorists doing 40-year sentences with nothing to fear from carrying out a fatwah against an unarmed man who has called them out in public.
