In May, Robinson reported outside of a court room where men of migrant-backgrounds were on trial for sexual grooming related offenses. Robinson read out information about their identities and the charges the men faced whilst livestreaming.
Notably, Robinson explained to Carlson that all of the information he read about the men had been from a BBC report that was public knowledge.
However, Robinson was arrested for allegedly breaching the peace. Being brought before a judge, Robinson was held on contempt of court due to the grooming trial being subject to supposed “reporting restrictions”.
Thankfully, reporting restrictions could never be used in the United States thanks to the First Amendment, which protects free speech and free press.
Although considering it, it is spectacularly abhorrent that something like this happened in a so-called free country – with a man imprisoned merely for reading a BBC article in public for holding the wrong thoughts.
Speaking with Tucker, Robinson – a vocal critic of Islam – revealed that during his time in prison, he was placed opposite the prison mosque and had even been diagnosed with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
Robinson explained that although he had initially been placed in a prison with a low Muslim population, 7%, he was moved to a Category C prison with the highest Muslim population in the country.
Robinson was then placed in solitary confinement for 23 and a half hours a day, given only 30 minutes of walking around a small cage for recreation. Robinson said that the threat to his safety after moving prisons was used to justify putting him in confinement.
Robinson detailed that he had lost forty pounds while in prison, given only a tin of tuna and a piece of fruit to eat for his daily consumption.
Being placed in a cell opposite the prison mosque and being forced to block and close his window to stop spit and excrement from being pushed through by other inmates, Robinson relayed the experience to Tucker:
I was supposed to be in Her Majesty’s Prison Service, not Guantanamo Bay… My prison cell that I was put in was on the ground level… and the mosque for the prison was directly opposite my cell. We… had two huge heat waves… I was literally drenched [because] I had excrement and spit put through my window… and in the end, I had to block up all of my cell windows.
After being imprisoned for unjustified reasons, Tommy Robinson was placed in cruel situations and treated unjustly. Although he was released from prison last week, the scars and experience will stay with Robinson for a lifetime.
Truly, after Tommy Robinson’s plight, it’s obvious that authorities in the United Kingdom are not there to protect native citizens but instead to enforce punishment for anyone daring to hold the wrong opinion.
As more and more evidence comes to light regarding the incompatibility of migrants in Western societies, the seemingly malicious nature of politicians and police in the U.K. in regards to the dangers of migrants and refugees becomes downright frustrating. Tommy Robinson was not the first to be unjustly punished merely for holding the wrong opinions and views – and with Britain’s lackluster response to real dangers facing the country, he will not be the last.
