Trouble at Tommy Robinson's court appearance

Tommy Robinson was charged with a ‘public order offence’? The public order offence was his attempt to stop extremist Muslims from burning poppies in utter disrespect for the millions of dead who have fought for our freedom. As well as in disrespect to the millions who still respect the memory of our war dead.

More specifically, Tommy attempted to confiscate the Islamic Black Flag of War from one of the Muslim poppy burners. It's no surprise at all that the police allow Muslims to carry flags like that. They also allow them to carry banners which say: ‘Hitler was right’, ‘The real Holocaust is on its way’, ‘Massacre those who insult Islam’, ‘Behead those who insult Islam’. And during the recent ‘mock funeral’ for the mass killer, Osama bin Laden, one of the Muslim banners said, ‘New atrocities are on their way’.

You see. Muslim can do and say just about anything. ‘Hate crimes’ are what non-Muslims do; not what Muslims do. Thus they can burn poppies and get a ‘speeding-ticket fine’, display obscene banners, etc. Yet non-Muslims get 70-day sentences for burning the Koran or are banned from EDL demos, and even EDL websites, for 10 years for very minor offences.

It also seem that Muslims were also allowed, by the police, to get into the EDL crowd which was supporting Tommy Robinson.

I don’t doubt for one moment that the police allowed these Muslims ‘to go among the EDL members’, as Hel Gower put it (Tommy R’s PA).

The police did much worse than that at Dudley, July 17th, 2010. They systematically allowed very small groups of EDL, after the demo, out of the demo site to be attacked by the Muslims who were marauding through the streets of Dudley and picking off any non-Muslim they could find.

This was quite clearly deliberate on the part of West Midlands Police. For over a hour, they let only small groups of EDL out of the demo area knowing full well that they would be attacked by the many Muslim thugs in the town centre. And they were indeed attacked - men, women and even some young people. There were many accounts of EDL, as well as Dudley shoppers, being attacked by Muslims. In one instance, the police deliberately pointed my own small group (four EDL) into the destination of a large gang of Muslims. We had asked the police about where to go to escape the rioting Muslims. The police deliberately misdirected us into the oncoming Muslims.

So why did the police do what they did at Dudley and yesterday at Tommy Robinson’s court appearance?
To teach the EDL a lesson. To attempt to discourage the EDL from any further action in support of their own or against radical Muslims. They are saying to the EDL: Don’t mess with Muslims. Or in their own PC-speak: Don’t mess with Community Cohesion and Diversity.
EDL Extra comments on the Fulham & Hammersmith Chronicle news item, 'Five arrests as far-right group clashes with Muslims in Hammersmith', by Adam Courtney, May 11th, 2011. (Comments are in red.)

Far-right group the English Defence League was involved in fights with 'young Muslims' outside West London Magistrates Court in Hammersmith on Wednesday afternoon, prompting police to make five arrests. [That's a misleading way to put it if the police deliberately allowed Muslims to ‘mingle’ with the EDL supporters of Tommy Robinson in the first place.]

Up to 150 members of the EDL descended on the area to show support for its founder, Stephen Lennon - also known by the pseudonym Tommy Robinson - who was in court charged with a public order offence during Armistice Day in Kensington last year, when Muslim extremists burned poppies.

A police source said more than 100 officers were drafted in to break up clashes between EDL supporters and Muslim students from nearby Ealing, Hammersmith and West London College.

The EDL claims the clashes were started by members of Muslims Against Crusades. A female EDL is alleged to have been taken to hospital with a facial injury.

The police source added people involved in the fights tried to storm the court, which had to be locked-down and suspended to prevent thugs getting in.

There were also reports of disorder in nearby Margavine Cemetery in Baron's Court.

A police helicopter hovered overhead for about an hour, as people were ushered out of the area.

A Met spokesman confirmed:
"Police were called at 4.40pm to reports of disturbances in the vicinity of West London Magistrates Court.

"Officers attended to deal with two groups fighting. Five people have been arrested for various public order offences."

The EDL, which has a history of being involved in demonstrations which descend into violence and end in multiple arrests, insists it was the innocent party in the fights.

In an email to the Chronicle from a woman claiming to be Lennon's PA, Hel Gower, she says the EDL were protesting peacefully when one of its female members was attacked.

"The Police stood there and allowed the Muslims to go among the EDL members, when it was quite clear from their demeanour they were intent on causing trouble, in which they succeeded," she wrote.

The EDL opposes what it sees as the spread of Sharia Law and Islam extremism in England. [‘what it sees’? Sharia law is spreading. A man was given a 70-day sentence just the other week for burning the Koran. That's a new Sharia law: the British Blasphemy Sharia Law of 2011. And Sharia law is spreading throughout the UK, whether that is halal meat being surreptitiously pushed on non-Muslims, the increased political and legal self-regulation of Muslims in what are called ‘civil cases’, etc.]

It has been banned from marching in the past due to its threat to public safety and is being investigated by police.

Commentators have described the group as being "a dangerous cocktail of football hooligans, far-right activists and pub racists".

The EDL insists it is not racist.
[Where did that statement come from?! Did this journalist feel it was about time he reminded his readers that the EDL is 'racist'? What about 'far right' as well, Adam? Or 'Islamophobic' for good measure?]

Lennon was later fined by JPs.
