A notorious hardline, pro-Israel conservative think tank has claimed that it is helping fund the legal expenses of jailed far-right British activist Tommy Robinson.

In a statement published Sunday, the Middle East Forum (MEF) also took credit for funding protests that have taken place in support of Robinson, real name Stephen Christopher Yaxley-Lennon.

Robinson was jailed for 13 months in May, “after being given 10 months for contempt of court, which he admitted, and a further three months for breaching a previous suspended sentence”.

MEF said it is “helping Robinson in his moment of danger”, in “three main ways”: using “monies to fund his legal defence”; “bringing foreign pressure on the UK government to ensure Mr. Robinson’s safety and eventual release”; and “organising and funding” the 9 June rally in London.

Former assistants to Robinson claimed he scooped a “massive payday” when he was jailed for contempt in May after he allegedly earned hundreds of thousands of pounds in donations.

For hundreds of thousands of dollars both me and my husband would gladly do a couple months in prison

Again - do you have any idea what happens in prison on a daily basis? Do you shed tears for the millions of men and women subjected to this everyday?

You are hypocritical to be complaining about the conditions Robinson faced in prison while staying silent about the millions of others who face them on a daily basis.

You are hypocritical for shrugging off Robinson illegally entering the United States and apparantly having a cocaine problem while you think it’s absolutely fine to put children in concentration camps when they don’t even know what they are doing is wrong and didn’t make the decision themselves.. and while denying other addicts who are struggling a meal. Because apparantly they aren’t worth that much but Robinson is worth hundreds of thousands of dollars in donations that he can spend on drugs when he doesn’t even need the money. And you’ll over look his drug use.

There are a million other reasons you are hypocritical but it will fall on deaf ears and a mind unable or unwilling to engage in introspection.. so I won’t waste any more of my time.
Why? I don’t have to care about every prison case ever to be watching this one..:rolleyes:

Robinson’s Pathetic Melodrama

The lies of Robinson’s weaselly little cult, if that isn’t a euphemism, collapse fairly quickly. Robinson spent a short period in HMP Onley, a “category C” prison. There is no mosque in the jail, and under a third of its inmates are Muslims. Robinson was under protection the entire time. His complaints while in jail indicate that he protested of “mental torture” in part so that he could demand “extra spends” and “enhanced” status and privileges.

Nonetheless, mainstream platforms echoed Robinson’s story of martyrdom. Far-right provocateur Raheem Kassam was shopped around the news by public relations firm CapitalHQ. He duly appeared on the BBC, as did Rebel Media boss Ezra Levant. As Owen Jones points out, if such interviews were supposed to challenge the far right’s mouthpieces, they failed abysmally. Kassam was allowed to style himself as a legal commentator, and his connection to Breitbart and the far right went unmentioned.

The irony is that Robinson’s supporters are exactly the sorts of people who typically decry Britain’s prisons as “soft touch” “holiday camps.” Here they compared a short stretch in a low-security prison to the global kidnapping and torturing rings linked to Guantánamo Bay. For a man who has served several jail terms, usually for violent offenses, this is weirdly melodramatic. Britain’s jails may be rough and overcrowded, but this mass conversion to the cause of prison reform would perhaps be less absurd if they honestly admitted why Robinson was jailed to start with.

In a softball interview with Robinson after his release, Fox News’s Tucker Carlson claimed that he was arrested for “attempting to cover the trial of a sexual grooming gang in the UK, for speaking out loud in the sidewalk.” Bannon likewise claimed that he was jailed unfairly, on a harsh application of a technicality regarding reporting restrictions. The Spectator’s Rod Liddle claimed not to be “remotely a fan” of Robinson, but asserted that he had been arrested for “simply being Robinson.”

Many of his supporters are more careful. UKIP leader Gerard Batten, who shares Robinson’s Islamophobic obsessions, told Infowars that Robinson was trying to protect “the victims of the industrialized r*pe gangs that we’ve got operating up and down this country now.”

But even he half-apologetically coughed out a disclaimer about Robinson breaking the law. Islam-baiter Douglas Murray, writing in the National Review, claimed that Robinson had been “persecuted” for “exceptionally brave” citizen journalism but admitted that he had committed an offense.

The reality is rather pathetic. Robinson knowingly endangered the trials of individuals potentially guilty of serious sexual assault against minors. In the first case, in May 2017, he brought a camera into the courtroom. British courts do not allow photography or filming, in order to preserve fair trials and prevent jury intimidation.

Robinson’s interest in the trials did not owe to some deep concern over sexual violence against children. When leading English Defence League (EDL) member Richard Price was locked up on child pornography charges, Robinson stood by him, and EDL members organized a campaign in his defense. But in this case the suspects were Asian — and many were Muslim.

Robinson has long cleaved to the Islamophobic right’s lunatic theory identifying “links” between Islam and p***philia. He tried to make racist propaganda out of the trials for Canada’s far-right Rebel Media. The judge duly handed him a suspended sentence. The following year, while still serving the suspended sentence, he committed the same offense, knowing full well he would be arrested.

As Britain’s top source of populist racism, the Sun, pointed out, Robinson’s willingness to wreck these trials didn’t make him a hero but a “nasty thug and a grandstanding idiot.” Surprisingly — perhaps showing proprietorial concern for its own racist racket — the Sun was the only outlet to take such an uncompromising line.

I wonder why Lisa is soooo fond of Tommy Robinson?


....you bought a t-shirt then Lisa?
Lol, no t-shirt, I only heard of him because of the muslim r*pe gangs. I didn’t find out until this year that he didn’t have a problem with Jews and most of his mates were black.

I see now why you mentioned the category c stuff...reading this second.
I didn’t hear that hmp onley was a lower level but the highest and that article didn’t mention hmp onley.

The first trial he admits to not knowing the rules and was sentenced to buying a class to learn the rules. The second trial where he was arrested off the street and sentenced to prison without a lawyer in 5 hours was different in that the Muslims were already convicted and everything he was reading was already in the public domain.

Tommy’s cousin was a victim of the r*pe gangs and is now married to a muslim, they never saw her again.

Asian in Britain is code for muslim.

He wasn’t out to wreck the trials..he wanted the muslims to be sentenced for their crimes against the young British girls they were victimizing...that last part doesn’t make sense.

He was or is? Idk the prison he is in now but the last one was said to be for violent criminals.
He was in a category c prison. That is the equivalent of a medium security prison. Yes, there will be some violent criminals but it isn’t a high security prison. He perfectly met the classification category to be housed there. Try reading the links provided to you rather than parrot the claims of someone with a personal motive to obfuscate.
