Tommy Robinson, who's real name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, is far-right/ring-wing activist that comes from Luton, England, United Kingdom, and who is known for his discrimination, and hatred of,[n. 1] Muslims. He is infamous for having lead the English Defence League, which "[a]t its height...was able to mobilise up to 5,000 in demonstrations that regularly deteriorated into violence...began to develop in an increasingly fascist direction, turning on socialists, trade unionists, student demonstrators and Occupy protestors as well as Muslims – its main target".[1] The rallies he personally lead cost the British taxpayers a total of £10 million (or $12.67 million dollars in 2017 dollar value[2]), and untold damages in destruction to property and healthcare, not to mention the long term costs including those of tourism.[3] He claims he is of working class background, though his real name is believed to be of upper-class origin, in contrast to the name he currently uses (which he had adopted as a pseudonym because he was scared of Muslims[4]). Robinson was born in 1982, and attended Putteridge High School and the highest educational attainment he has gotten was scraping 11 mediocre GCSE's (an "A" in maths apparently, but further claims he "never studied" for them).[4] He dropped out of high school at the age of 16 and has no university educational background (his lack of a formal education becomes evident given that he ardently believes Barack Obama—who served as president of the USA between 2008 and 2016—is a Muslim[5]).[4] He also believes in other wild conspiracy theories about Muslims, such as "creeping Sharia".[6]

History: Origins of Muslim and Irish Hatred

Origins of—and Evidence for—Muslim Hatred

His hatred of Muslims stems from the fact he was unable to do an aircraft engineering apprenticeship starting in 2003 after five years of high school.[4] However, in a drunken rampage, (he alleges) he violently attacked a police officer, and immediately lost it.[4] Robinson blamed his apprenticeship loss not on his own disgraceful behaviour, but on Muslims, because "as a result of tightened security measures after September 11[th], his criminal record meant he was blacklisted from working at airports".[4] Bitter, he set to working on a building site to earn some money, still not angry at his own stupidity, but developing a sense of self-victimisation which has followed him on to his 350,000 Twitter followers,[7] where he sees[n. 2] himself as a hero.[4][8] The Telegraph notes "[t]o many, he is little more than a cut-price demagogue in designer clobber who has spent four-and-a-half years inciting hatred against Muslims with his menacing and often violent rallies".[4] But the news report also revealed his hatred of Muslims also comes down to jealousy of the community spirit he feels is stronger with Muslims than with Whites, which has made him envious.[4] In an interview he remarked "[t]he mentality they [Muslims] have, I realised it when I went to the World Cup...When an Englishman out there gets in trouble, every other Englishman defends him. It’s the mindset, you’re away from home and he’s your brother. And that’s the brotherhood they have every day. You get in trouble outside a nightclub here, they’ll get out of their taxis, their chicken shops, they’ll come from everywhere. They don’t need to know each other".[4]

Irish Hatred & White Identity Crisis

Robinson also has a contradictive personality when it comes to his own ethnic heritage. Although he claims to be English, he is in actual fact half Scottish (from his fathers side) and half Irish (from his mothers side).[9] He however claims to be "proud" of his lineage but reporters have noted how his Twitter feed reveals a deep seated resentment towards his Irish blood.[9] For example, he has posted anti-Irish insults on social media (calling Irishmen "plastic paddies") and insinuated Ireland is a nation that is nothing more than impoverished rock; claiming "[my parents would be] in Ireland picking potatoes and eating cabbages [if they hadn't moved to England]".[9][10] He also condemns those who point out his Irish heritage, branding them "fools" and "wronguns".[9] Additionally he's threatened British Irish citizens directly with mob violence once remarking "...we are taking a tidy mob to England Ireland on 29th"; referring to a pre-planned fight he wanted to instigate.[9] During his time with the EDL, his group also staged anti-Irish protests.[11] The location, Liverpool, was significant because it is home to "many second and third generation Irish immigrants".[11] An EDL splinter group additionally created an anti-Irish poster who described the Irish ethnicity as "much like the Islamics" who "abuse their host nation [by supporting the IRA]".[11] As a result the Irish have been attacked by Robinson's group, with the problem at one point getting so worse that the mayor and police had to get involved. One pro-Irish activist noted "[i]t['s] happening because...there is no large Asian community in Liverpool so the Irish are an easy target".[11] Despite this, Robinson has laughed off his anti-Irish behaviour and statements.[n. 3]

Outright Fabrications, "I Don't Hate Muslims, Only the Extremist Ones" & Use of "Muzzrat" In Place of "Judenrat"

Robinson claims he doesn't hate all Muslims, but evidence has proven otherwise.[13] For instance, he believes Muslim women, racially-wise,[14] are ugly, making an exception by once remarking to a 15 year-old Muslim girl—who clearly had her birthday publicly displayed on her Twitter profile—that she was "pretty fit for a Muslim girl".[15] In another instance a British boxer attended a prayer session with his Muslim brother; Robinson lashed out at him branding him a "sell-out".[16] In another instance, an EDL member viciously declared that he wished Muslims would "burn in hell",[17] where Robinson responded by saying that he found that there was "nothing wrong with his speech".[18] Furthermore, he totally refuses to outright condemn members of the EDL who are ex-convicts, terrorists,[19][20] child-groomers, rapists,[21] paedophiles/child molesters,[15][22] football hooligans,[23][24] murderers,[25] wife-beaters,[26] White supremacists[n. 4] and racists.[27] He also justified[28] the terrorist attack against Muslims that occurred in Finsbury Park in 2017,[29] where Darren Osborne killed one Muslim.[30] Perhaps most sinister is Robinson having been allowed to visit Israel—where, despite his Nazi past—he has been welcomed by the Israeli military (which claims it is the "worlds most moral army"[31][32][33][34]) having taken photographs with them[35][36]—unsurprising, given that Israelis hate Muslims (where nearly half, or 48%, of Israelis want to ethnically cleanse Muslims from the region[37][38]), and where their military regularly[39] uses Muslim—even Muslim children[40][n. 5]—as human shields as per official policy.[41] He has also called Muslims "enemy combatants".[42]
Robinson has fabricated numerous stories about Muslims in order to further his anti-Muslim agenda. For instance after a terrorist incident in May 2017 in Manchester he tweeted a picture to his 300,000 followers that the "Manchester chief of police" was "accepting & posing with the Koran after the Manchester attack".[43] This wasn't the case, as the police immediately retorted back that the photo he tweeted was an older photograph taken on June 23rd, 2016, when the terrorist incident Robinson was attempting to libel the police photograph with occurred in 2017.[43] In another incident he made a libel against Muslims that they had desecrated a Christian cemetery, with the accusation coming from his autobiography.[44] At the "York Free Speech Forum" he showed a video of Muslims chanting "Yah Takbir", with the crowd responding back "Allah Hu Akbar", where Robinson lied by claiming that when this is translated the crowd was actually saying "death to all Jews".[45][46] In actual fact what they were saying was a "Takbir" where Muslims shout "God is the Greatest".[47] Another time he falsely claimed all Uber driver rapists are Muslims because "all Uber drivers in the UK are Muslim immigrants".[48] In yet another tweet in response to a story by the "Barnsley Chronicle" he claimed a British soldier was attacked by Muslims; saying "u know and we know it was Muslims! Yet u go out of your way to hide it"; to which the newspapers responded by silencing him with the fact that the soldier was attacked by a White Briton, to which he didn't respond.[49] He also calls Muslims "wife beaters", despite beating his own wife and attacking a police officer.[50]
Robinson called Muslims "Muzzrats"[n. 6] on his Twitter page.
Robinson used the anti-Semitic trope of "Jewrat" and changed it to "Muzzrat".
He also frequently discriminates against Muslims. Perhaps the most sinister comparison Robinson has made about Muslims is when he equated them to rats, branding all Muslims "muzzrats",[51][52] This comparison with rats is particularly relevant as the Nazis commonly used this in their anti-Semetic media; such as that in "Der Ewige Jude", which was a Nazi propaganda film which depicted the Jewish religious minority as gutter rats,[53] because of Jewish criminals. The film specifically began with the narrator saying, "Just as the rat is the lowest of animals, the Jew is the lowest of human beings".[53] Other things which he has tweeted out are extremely unfunny jokes that don't make any sense, such as "[h]ow do Muslims practice safe sex? They mark the goats and camels with a Red X that kick!". In another tweet he wrote "kids go 2 fancy dress parties as pirates who were killers,liars & cheats!Will kids in 20 yrs go 2 fancy dress parties dressed as Muslims then?".[54] Robinson has also called Muslims "inbred", claiming "50% of you [Muslims] marry your cousins",[55] ignoring the fact that even if this was true, 80% of the worlds marriages throughout history have been cousin marriages,[56] including that of evolutionary biologist Charles Darwin,[57] physicist Albert Einstein,[58] poet Edgar Allan Poe,[59] writer H.G. Wells,[60] US President Franklin D. Roosevelt,[61] American revolutionary John Adams,[62] US founding father Thomas Jefferson,[63][64] founder of the Buddhist religion Gautama Buddha,[65] Morse code inventor Samuel F. B. Morse[66] and Roman general Mark Antony.[67] Robinson has also threatened British Muslims with violence, and doesn't regard Muslims as British citizens,[n. 7] just as the Nazis didn't consider Jews German.[68]

Involvement with White Supremacists, Neo-Nazis and Terrorist Organisations

BNP: A Decade Long Secret Relationship & Associated Splinter Groups (c. 2004—c. 2015)

Robinson joined the BNP in 2004,[69] holding membership for 365 days; having admitted his ties on the BBC's "Sunday Politics"[70] However, in an extremely bizarre move, Robinson justified his membership by stating that he "didn’t know non-whites couldn’t join the organisation" and that he also "didn’t know Nick Griffin was in the National Front".[70] This doesn't make any sense given that the fundamental—and founding—principle of the BNP has always been opposition to the existence of people based on race.[71] Additionally, Griffin is widely known across the UK for his decades long membership with the National Front when he joined it in 1974 (which itself been active since the early 1970s; and which at it's peak, had 15,000 active members).[72] Griffin is also an extremely infamous White Power advocate, and known widely in the UK for his long history of racist remarks. For example, in the 1980s he stated, ""[w]e haven't given up on our principle [of] mono racial countries... mono ethnic countries". He also produced a leaflet which claimed "to [have] prove[n] that Jewish people controlled the British media and thereby were able to brainwash white British people into accepting multiculturalism" (and has also denied the Holocaust, preferring to call it the "holohoax").[72][73] Given this body of evidence, Robinson cannot claim he didn't know enough about the BNP both before and during his time with the party. This means that he actively supported it's racial hatred policies, and knew of the intensely racially charged and inflamed policies the BNP ran on during the national election cycle that suspiciously coincided with him obtaining paid membership to the party.
Nick Griffin joined the NF in 1974, then the BNP in 1999. He has a long history of racism, even in the BNP itself, when Robinson joined.
Where the BNP obtains the majority of it's votes from.
Indeed, and rather crucially, the 2005 General Election coincided directly to when he obtained his membership with the racist party; and perhaps more telling of why he cannot claim ignorance for the racial policies of the BNP are when the party was constantly campaigning for votes across the country during this time, with regular television appearances surrounding Griffin (who at this point had been it's leader/chairman for six years).[74] It is also interesting to note that the BNP increased their vote count dramatically by 145,721 votes from 47,129 in 2001, in the 2005 general election, collecting a grand total of 192,850 votes.[75] This was at a time when the UK's election voter turnout was the lowest in it's history for the past few decades at slightly above 60%. In the 2010 General Election, the BNP obtained a staggering 563,743 votes.[76] In 2015, the BNP obtained only 1,667 votes;[76] or a fall of 99.7%.[77] This large drop in support also coincided with the increased membership of the EDL, who's ranks swelled with ex-BNP members (at least 33% of the members of the EDL in 2011 were active BNP voters[78]),[79] something which only could have been achieved so rapidly, only if Robinson knew a lot of it's members long beforehand and actively recruited them continuously for the EDL. In 2012, most tellingly of all however, was that Robinson was directly involved with an off-shoot of the BNP—the "British Freedom Party"—serving as their vice-chairman,[80] attempting to get members of the EDL elected into parliament.[81] After the BNP's drastic decline in popularity, Robinson for the first time ever, tweeted his disdain for the BNP, saying "fuck the BNP".[82]

Terrorism: BNP Funders of the EDL & Trans-European Terrorist Links (c. 2009—c. 2013)

In December of 2011, the organisation "Unite Against Fascists" released a report on those funding Robinson, with his most significant sources of income coming from BNP funders, years after he supposedly "left" the BNP.[83] All of this information came from a defector named Paul Ray—a Neo-Nazi and Christian extremist—who exposed the network after having become severely disaffected with Robinson's leadership,[83] and who was for a long time in an arduous power struggle for control of the EDL with him.[84] These financiers have been Alan 'Lake' Ayling (who is a "former director of the Pacific Capital investment fund"' where "[u]nder the pseudonym Alan Lake, he penned the ominously-named “EDL Final Solution,” which advocates front organizations and illegal activities to undermine Muslims and their representatives"[85]),[83] Ann 'Gaia' Marchini (a multi-millionaire BNP financier,[85] also known under the alias of "Dominique Devaux"),[83] Chris 'Aeneas' Knowles,[83] Robert De Jonge (who also operates under the name of "Robert Bartholomeus"[86]) and Christine Brim.[83] Another important figure has been self-proclaimed racial theorist Edward 'Baron Bodissey' May—and chief radicaliser of Anders B. Brevik,[n. 8] Peder Jensen ("Fjordman")—who is head of the anti-Muslim[87] website "Gates of Vienna"—named after the Battle of Vienna in 1683; which is often touted as an Islamic vs. Western clash of civilization;[88] but ironically was only ever really majority fought only between Europeans (and allies of the Ottomans such as France), with some 25% of the soldiers involved being Muslim, and 75% being Christian.[89]
Ann 'Gaia' Marchini is a BNP funder and funded Robinson for years. Pictured here with Anti-Semite Richard Barnbrook (2008).
EDL-funder, Alan Ayling, publicly endorsed using terrorism to kill, financed Robinson, and may have financed Anders Brevik.
In 2009, the EDL was founded in a £500,000 pound flat in the upper-class Barbican flats in the City of London; inside a flat owned[n. 9] by Ayling (who is a Zionist[90]).[83][91] According to reports "[t]he founding meetings brought together...Lake...with Ray, Stephen Yaxley Lennon...and his cousin Kevin Carroll...‘Gaia’, named by the Sunday Times as Ann Marchini, was also at the founding caucus".[83] The revelation of this clandestine meeting is important because it highlights the racial and violent political nature behind the formation of the EDL, and that of Robinson's selective targeting of the British Muslim community. Ayling even later outed himself as an active supporter of terrorism; promoting the elimination of those who disagree with him, once writing an entire article on his website "4 Freedoms" that called for the killing/murdering of the Archbishop of Canterbury and the British Prime Minister as well as the Deputy Prime Minister.[92] The police however have never charged him for supporting or encouraging terrorism (but they have with Muslims[n. 10]). Nevertheless, Ayling was able to fund the EDL secretively using both his salaried job (having earned £70,000 pounds per year) plus uncapped bonuses; but his identity eventually came to light in 2011,[n. 11][93][94] when a terrorist attack occurred in Norway (with the evidence strongly[n. 12] suggesting that Ayling may have financed himself[n. 13]).[95] His employer knew of his activities as far back as January 2011, when Ayling was first suspended from his job[96] eventually being fired in August 2012[97] (because his bank wanted to expand into Muslim countries[96]).
His close friend/anti-Muslim associate Chris Knowles (the EDL's chief strategist) was also fired from Leeds Council a week prior.[97] After the collapse of the most important figures in the EDL, a clearer picture emerged of Robinson's associations. The terrorist connections Robinson and his funders had had became extremely relevant. The fact that Ayling personally knew of Fjordman and Bartholomeus, both of whom had connections to terrorists; the former for having radicalised Anders Behring Brevik[n. 14] and the second for having actively supported a Jewish terrorist group,[98][99] indicated how toxic Robinson's ties to the EDL had become. Brevik had murdered 77 people in Norway (69 of them children on Utoya Island in Norway and the rest in a bomb blast in the city of Oslo),[100] and had mentioned Fjordman at least 111[101]—114 times in his manifesto (along with 116 mentions of JihadWatch and 86 mentions of Gates of Vienna),[102] clearly indicative of how much he had been radicalised.[102] Even after the incident Robinson praised Breivik.[103] However, mired with the downfall of Ayling, and his own soon-to-be financial problems, Robinson chose to finally abandon the EDL for good. He claimed to be apologetic[104] to the Islamic/Muslim community but falsely painted himself as some sort of reformed character.[105] He began being seen with his cousin Kevin Carroll alongside staff members of the Quilliam Foundation. However, amidst this smokescreen, the media were to beginning to notice Robinson and his cousin's anti-Muslim rhetoric begin again;[105] this time in supporting the genocide of the Rohingyas.[106][107][108]
The Utoya massacre was inspired by Ayling's idealogy and those of his friends. Total dead: 92.

Loss of Funding, Tax-Robbery, Criminal History, Tax Dodging & Eventual Aid From Quilliam (c. 2010—c. 2015)

Tommy Robinson's real name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon and left the EDL because of money problems.
Robinson's financial history is very questionable and was highly likely the reason he left the EDL in 2013; given the amount of illegal activity he has engaged in.[8] He alleges that he cares about his country but refuses to pay taxes at all.[8] During his apprenticeship, he alleges he worked for a Merrill Lynch contractor where he was paid £70,000 to £80,000 pounds per year, and even had six people employed by him.[8] By 2010, because of his public appearances, the police were alerted to his financial history.[8] The police first investigated his sun-tanning shop, which was bringing in £1,500 pounds in cash per week and £500 pounds in credit card receipts.[8] The police analysed all of his electronic paperwork, which were also tracked through SolarTrack technology, and found that Robinson had avoided contributing to his country by avoiding £137,000 pounds in tax (this figure did not include the lack of tax paid by cash in hand).[8] A court case ensued, where he was eventually ordered to repay back £125,000 pounds.[8] In November 2013, he was also convicted of a £160,000 pound mortgage fraud,[109] and given 18 months in jail (but was out in 6 months).[8] He was part, in total, of a tax-dodging gang, one of whom (Deborah Rothschild) racked up £640,000 pounds in fraud.[110] His wife was also arrested for another tax dodging crime.[8] A mere 6 months prior to his sentencing he quit the EDL and joined Quilliam, which calls itself an "anti-extremism" charity, founded by Maajid Nawaz, an anti-Muslim extremist who pays himself £77,438 per year.[111][112] Robinson's move was therefore for financial reasons not regret.
This was confirmed in 2015, when Robinson admitted that he was paid by them to leave the EDL.[113] Quilliam itself was formed in April 2008, and was proped up by private donors from the Middle-east Gulf.[114] After a year, funding was cut, whereupon the UK Government decided to come to their aid.[114] The British government granted £675,000 pounds for the period of 2008—2009, and £390,000 for the period of 2009—2010.[114] Nawaz began to reach out to private donors during this time, where it was even rumoured Gaddafi had been funding them.[114] Between 2010—2011, Nawaz was given £159,000 in funding, but at the end of the year, the British government declared funding will now be cut totally, apart from a smaller cash injection of £27,000 pounds.[114] The year 2011 saw Quilliam totally change sides, and instead go against British Muslim interests.[114] Funding now came from spurious foreign charities and organisations such as the "Stuart Family Foundation" (SFF) and the "Templeton Foundation" (TF); who are intensely right wing groups found in the United States.[114] A total of $250,000 dollars was provided; and rather very unusually and out of character, the "former Director of the Conservative Friends of Israel Robert Halfon also tables a motion requesting continued Government funding of Quilliam", to which the government offered £40,000 pounds.[114] This was the year that marked the first time Nawaz advocated for bombing Muslim countries.[114] In the same timeframe, Quilliam US was registered as a charity, one of whom's founders is a war profiteer, Chad Sweet of the Chertoff Group.[114]
Maajid Nawaz with Tommy Robinson. When Robinson left the EDL, Quilliam had already converted itself against Muslim interests.
Majid Nawaz is a traitor to British Muslims everywhere; for his support for the Palestinian genocide.
Maajid Nawaz himself is an example of a self-hating Muslim[n. 15] who is regularly known to appease and legitamize the views of Islamophobes.[n. 16] In fact, he went out of his way to actually work with Sam Harris, co-authoring a book with him, "Islam and the Future of Tolerance".[115] This is in spite of the fact that Harris is known to virulently hate Muslims, going as far as having said "we are at war with Muslims" and advocating for mass genocide, terrorism and violence against Muslims. Virtually all of Harris's "thought experiments" additionally, always routinely end up with Muslim men, women and children either dying or dead;[116] which Harris rubs off as "colateral damage", in stark contrast to how he sees non-Muslim victims, if Muslims did the same thing.[117] Harris is very large in the atheist community (despite being a Jewish Supremacist), having 646,000 followers.[118] Nawaz has also shared platforms and worked with Douglas Murray, of the "Henry Jackson Society", which campaigns to make "conditions for Muslims in Europe" to "be made harder across the board".[119] Murray himself has connections to Robert Spencer, and has also worked with the EDL (in fact praising their pogroms[120] in Muslim areas across the UK and inviting them to his conferences).[121] Nawaz has even tried to get his own brother jailed over a personal argument he had had with him by falsely painting him "as a would-be suicide bomber"', endangering his brother's entire family and reputation.[122] Worst of all, he has tried to defraud, defame and physically damage the British Muslim community by compiling entire registers of Muslims for the purposes of false witch-hunts.[123]

Return to Neo-Nazi Roots: PEGIDA (Patriotische Europaeer Gegen die Islamisierung des Abendlandes) (c. 2015—Present)

After the debacle and eventual facade that was revealed with Quilliam, Robinson joined up with PEGIDA, which had it's origins in Germany. PEGIDA ("Patriotische Europaeer Gegen die Islamisierung des Abendlandes"; which in English stands for "Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamisation of the West") was a far-right street organisation that was created by Lutz Bachmann,[124] on October 11th, 2014.[125] PEGIDA was formed in response to opposition to the existance of refugees in Germany, with their demonstrations accumulating 20,000 protestors.[84] Crucially, it also included Neo-Nazis.[126] Prior to it's formation, the German far-right were looking for an organisation in order to gather around.[84] The first of these were the "HoGeSa" ("Hooligans Against Salafists"), who managed to attract 5,000 Neo-Nazis in Cologne.[84] In 2016, a defector—Rene Jahn—who belonged to the group exposed the groups nefarious activities.[127] Such activities have included spreading false Islamophobic propaganda in order to whip up racial hatred; which included spreading stories that Kindergartens were banned from serving pork, Sharia law was being implemented in Germany and churches were being turned into mosques.[127] The PEGIDA movement eventually found it's way to the UK in 2015.[84] Bachman was eventually exposed as a Nazi himself, when he dressed up as Hitler and took a selfie of himself.[128] Ironically, Bachmann fled Germany as a refugee and settled in Tenerife, Spain.[129] When Robinson launched PEGIDA in the UK, it totally failed to attract the support Robinson thought it would.[130]

Joins the alt-right/alt-White Rebel Media (c. 2017—Present)

Levant is known as a big-mouth, playing the anti-Semitic card, and having a tiny brain; caricatured[131] here.
In 2017, Robinson joined the "Rebel Media",[132] which is a Canadian alt-right/alt-White media blog that portrays itself as a news organisation in a similar way to that of "Breitbart" in the USA.[133] It was set up by Ezra Levant, who is of Jewish origin, and given that he is an anti-Muslim[n. 17] zealot,[134][n. 18] his organisation reflects a severe deep-seated hatred and intolerance of Muslims amongst Jews in Canada. If someone disagrees with him, he often plays the anti-Semite card.[135] The blog itself also claims to be pro-Zionist;[n. 19] and regards Palestinians who defend their homes from Israel's brutal ethnic cleansing (shoah[136])[137] and democratic apartheid,[138] as "Islamic militants".[139] In an attempt to promote the Jewish take-over of Palestine (or what is left of Palestine) amongst his correspondents, he funded a propaganda tour of Israel, which ironically made one of them so angry at the "shit" he was being fed by Israelis, that Israel itself was actually turning him anti-Semitic.[139] Gavin McInnes, who is no friend of Muslims (having called them "inbred" and supported a call for a violent crusade against Palestinian Muslims[140]), reported it was "basically a brainwashing trip...the Israeli government paid for this...but I think they were mostly Israelis who assumed we are gonna listen to all this shit we get fed. And that is having the reverse effect on me...".[139] The blog has been particularly problematic in other things, given that they have repeatedly promoted and spread false information throughout their lifespan. This has ranged from defending the KKK,[n. 20] falsely accusing Muslim refugees of terrorism,[n. 21] to denying rape culture in the West,[n. 22] science and climate change.[n. 23]

"Uncle Toms" & "I'm Not Racist Because..."

"I'm not racist because I like Sikhs, they're well integrated in the UK"

Robinson's ties to Sikh organisations has also been one of the hallmarks of his claims that he isn't racist.[141] He often praises Sikhs—for what he sees—as a minority that has integrated well into British society, frequently contrasting them[142] against British Muslims in an effort to bastardise the latter. According to one independent study, 46% of Muslims were found to have fully integrated into the UK, compared to 48% of Hindus and 39% of Sikhs; which meant that Sikhs were far less integrated than most of the Asian population.[143] Robinson however ignores such empirical evidence, outright refusing to even bother challenging his selective narrative. He also ignores the fact that Sikhs remain far more ghettoised/isolated than British Muslims;[n. 24] with another being the intolerance of Sikh males to other Britons, who see Sikh females marrying non-Sikh men as an abomination (and which for Muslim men, has manifested itself into a dangerous conspiracy theory about kidnapping/grooming/forced-conversions; which has no evidence[144]). In one instance, fifty-five men of "Sikh Youth UK"[145] (formerly "Sikh Youth Birmingham")[146] violently stormed into a wedding, brandished swords/knives, and terrorised wedding guests;[147] ending only when the Sikh fanatics were arrested by the police.[148] Another widely problematic issue has been that of forcibly segregating disabled people,[149] as they are regarded as having accumulated "bad karma" in their previous life.[n. 25] However, most significant has been the lack of rights given to women by Sikh males such as divorce, as it is banned[150] in Sikhism (and can only be obtained under non-Sikh civil laws ie in a non-Sikh country[151]).

Recently Robinson featured "Sikh Youth UK" in a video filmed for the alt-right/alt-White Canadian "Rebel Media", where the video in question was nothing more than a circle-jerk[152] of praise for Sikhs. This open acceptance of video-graphic praise from Robinson was designed to reinforce the belief amongst Sikhs that they are more integrated/accepted than Muslims amongst Whites; which is a common—albeit factually incorrect—belief even amongst Sikhs themselves.[153] However, this isn't the only instance where Sikhs have turned "uncle Tom"; indeed the Sikh EDL Division, who at one point had 12,000 likes[154] on their Facebook page, was formed by Sikh fanatic Gurmat Singh Kalarai.[155] Perhaps more sinister is that mainstream Sikh organisations have recently begun to give Robinson an unchallenged platform, despite his long association with racist groups and his own racist history himself.[154] The Sikh Channel for instance gave Robinson a full one-hour interview in April 2015, where Robinson did nothing more than attack Muslims.[154] Mohan Singh of the "Sikh Awareness Society", also shared a platform with Robinson (despite previously denying his links to him),[156] at an anti-Muslim hate rally[157] ironically named "UK Against Hate" (organised by "Rebel Media") that was full of EDL members, racists and anti-Muslim protestors.[158] Approximately 1,000 of them were in attendance, with chants such as "[y]ou're not English anymore" being especially common.[159] Rallies such as this have ironically contributed to a rise in Islamophobic attacks against Muslims and non-Muslims like Sikhs (where the latter make up as much as 28% of its victims).[160][n. 26]

"I'm not racist because I like Sikhs, they fought for Britain during WWI & WWII"

One of the most common tropes Robinson uses to praise Sikhs are their military contribution during the World Wars, whilst ignoring the far bigger and more significant contribution by Muslims; portraying his praise as if the Sikh contribution is somehow unique. However during World War I, a total of 885,000 Muslims were recruited into the British, French and Russian armies, of which 89,000 were killed between 1914—1918.[161] Approximately 34,000 of the dead were Arab (280,000 had served),[161] along with 400,000 Muslims who served in the British Indian army alone (comprising of 27%—31%[n. 27] of all Indian troops).[161] The Sikh contribution was only 100,000 (6.7%—7.7%).[162] Additionally, there were 800,000 Hindu soldiers (53.3%—61.5%).[162] Many of these same troops (and more), would go on two decades later and fight once again in Europe.[161] For the oncoming decades, years after both World Wars, the sacrifice of the Muslim soldiers were largely forgotten and any and all commemoration of their efforts were wiped from the records.[163] During the 50th anniversary of WWI in 1964 for example, there was hardly any mention of these soldiers in the British press.[163] Even in India they were forgotten,[163] but for a different reason; that of shame for having helped out the British empire,[163] given it's plethora of broken promises, instigation of deliberate famines,[164] mass violence and massacres,[165] and uncaring attitudes towards the lives of the peoples of the sub-continent (especially concerning the horrendous mismanagement[166] of the Indian partition that resulted in the deaths of millions[n. 28] in 1947).[n. 29]

Similarly more Muslims fought for the British during WWII than Sikhs did, comprising around 37.5% of the military by January 1st, 1940, which remained steadily consistent throughout, with the percentage never falling below 31% up to July 1st, 1947.[169] At their lowest (January 1st, 1940) they numbered some 92,841 soldiers; and at their peak (January 1st, 1945), they numbered some 447,580 Muslims that were fighting against the Nazis.[169] For the Sikhs, it was 31,797 and 94,270 respectively.[169] Overall, a total of 2.5 million Indian troops were deployed, consisting of 78 infantry battalions, 20 Gurkha battalions, 18 Cavalry units, 34,500 British officers and 15,740 Indian officers.[169] Of this, a total of 24,338 were killed in battle, 64,354 were wounded, 11,754 were missing and 79,489 were captured as prisoners of war.[169][170][171] Altogether during both World Wars, they won 31 Victoria Crosses (with the first one ever awarded to a Muslim named Khuddad Khan in 1914[168]) and 4,028 gallantry awards.[169] Muslims served in the "1st Punjab Infantry Battalion" (50%), "2nd Punjab Infantry Battalion" (34%), the "Madras Infantry Battalion" (25%), the "Indian Grenadiers Infantry Battalion" (50%), the "Rajput Rifles Infantry Battalion" (34%), the "Rajput Infantry Battalion" (50%), the "8th Punjab Infantry Battalion" (50%), the "Jat Infantry Battalion" (50%), the "Baluch Infantry Battalion" (75%), the "Sikh Infantry Battalion" (25%), the "Frontier Force Regiment Infantry Battalion" (50%), the "Frontier Force Rifles Infantry Battalion" (50%), the "14th Punjab Infantry Battalion" (50%), the "15th Punjab Infantry Battalion" (50%) and the "16th Punjab Infantry Battalion" (34%).[169] Only 2% of the British population are aware of the Muslim contribution.[162]

Involvement with Mainstream Hindu Organisations

Certain figures in the Hindu community have also shown sympathy towards Robinson's discriminatory views, and have been particularly problematic in trying to push for more communalist politics in the UK. One of the most significant has been Mayank Banerjee, who served as the "Oxford Union President", who invited Robinson to the University in order to give him a platform to air his Islamophobic and biased views, unchallenged in November 2014.[172] This is particularly important given that May 2014 was the year where a Hindu extremist, known as the "Butcher of Gujurat",[173] Narendra Modi of the BJP party was elected Prime Minister of India.[174] Banerjee justified his agenda disingenuously by claiming "[t]he Union stands by the invitation to Mr Robinson and we would like to reiterate that an invitation from the Union is not an endorsement of any particular agenda".[175] The anti-Neo Nazi protest group "Oxford Unite Against Facism (OUAF)" protested, and highlighted that Robinson had "organised and lead [sic] violent racist demonstrations and waged a campaign of demonisation of Muslims" and "continues to incite racial hatred against Muslims" today.[175] Additionally the "National Council of Hindu Temples UK" invited Robinson in 2016 claiming to want to have a "respectful dialogue" with him but actually "wanted him to talk about why UK Hindus should be afraid of Muslims".[141][176] Robinson's invitation is unusual because a far more pressing concern amongst British Hindus is caste discrimination,[177] where 20% of Hindus have been affected.[178] Things are so bad that Hindus have engaged in slavery; in one case in Milton Keynes a lower caste Hindu was paid £0.11 pennies per hour by her high caste Hindu employers.[178]
Mayank Banerjee, who was president of the Oxford Union, actively tried to make Robinson more mainstream and respectable.

Robinson's Quote Mining of Historical Figures on Islam

Gladstone's quote had been widely distributed and shared on far-right Facebook pages.
Robinson often has a reactionary habit of bringing up Winston Churchill and William E. Gladstone's views on Islam and Muslims in order to encourage others to discriminate against them; both of whom were British Prime Ministers; the former between 1940—1955 and the latter between 1868—1894.[179][180] He uses this as evidence of how evil Muslims are, numerous times, and often on Twitter.[181] However using both of these British heavyweight politicians is problematic given that they were inherently immoral, not to mention the fact that they were racist, imperialist and hypocrites. Robinson's most oft quote has been when Churchill allegedly said, "[h]ow dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries ... Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce...The influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it" in 1899.[182] Churchill then later contradicted himself,[183] by almost converting to Islam years later.[184] Churchill even provided £100,000 pounds British tax-payer money, in funding, in order to build a mosque in London in 1940.[182] Robinson also used Gladstones quote that "[a]s long as there is this book [the Quran], there will be no peace in the world".[185] However, Gladstone himself was anything but peaceful; he owned 2,500 slaves who were treated horrendously[186] as well as having supported[187][188] the pro-slavery/pro-racist slave owning Confederacy in the "American Civil War" of 1861—1865.[189] Essentially, "[h]is stance on slavery echoed that of his father, who was one of the largest slave owners in the British West Indies...".[190]
Even if Robinson's quote-mining was legitimate, a litany of other quotes from more accomplished individuals could easily dismiss his allegations against Islam and Muslims. For example, Alexander Pushkin is noted to have said "I take pleasure in the beauty of the Quran".[191] Leo Tolstoy said "I am very sympathetic to those who change religion and become Muslims...all sensible people without doubt will choose Islam with its simple declaration of belief".[191] The Dalai Llama has stated "I always come forth, with a defense of Islam...[because] I understand Islam".[192] H.G. Wells said that "[t]he Islamic teachings have left great traditions for equitable and gentle dealings and behavior, and inspire people with nobility and tolerance. These are human teachings of the highest order and at the same time practicable. These teachings brought into existence a society in which hard-heartedness and collective oppression and injustice were the least as compared with all other societies preceding it...Islam is replete with gentleness, courtesy, and fraternity".[192] Mahatma Gandhi once wrote "I wanted to know the best of the life of one who holds today an undisputed sway over the hearts of millions of mankind… I became more than ever convinced that it was not the sword that won a place for Islam in those days in the scheme of life. It was the rigid simplicity, the utter self-effacement of the Prophet the scrupulous regard for pledges, his intense devotion to his friends and followers, his intrepidity, his fearlessness, his absolute trust in God and in his own mission. These and not the sword carried everything before them and surmounted every obstacle".[192]
Russia's most famous writer, Leo Tolstoy, and non-violent activist. Mahatma Gandhi. regarded Islam very highly, amongst others.

Robinson's views of "Muslim" Paedophiles vs. White Paedophiles

Robinson only cares about White children being molested. This is what he thinks about Muslim children.
What particularly seems to get under Robinson's skin are non-White paedophile rings,[193][194] despite the fact that White men over-represent global paedophilia and serial killer cases,[n. 30][n. 31][n. 32] which as of July 2017, Robinson has still never addressed or protested against.[195] His outrage appears only to be reserved for non-White paedophiles.[193][195] This is unsurprising giving that the EDL itself was full of paedophiles,[196] which Robinson deliberately ignored for years when he was leading the EDL (and even since leaving the EDL he has never addressed why he has kept quiet about the child abuse occurring under his watch). Neither has he challenged the deeply sinister culture of White men visiting South East Asia solely for the purpose of raping and molesting children; such as in one case where Richard Huckle was found to have raped and molested 200 children when he moved to Muslim-majority[197] Malaysia permanently in 2011. Robinson remained silent, either because he didn't care or he approved of it, but what is clear is that he did not outright publicly condemn it, given that it is the worst case of paedphilia in British history. All of this is of particular concern given that the "National Crime Agency" (NCA) has (under[198])estimated 750,000 (out of 31.2 million) British men are paedophiles;[199] with at least 250,000 actively looking for sex with pre-pubescent children.[199] However, when it comes to Asian origin paedophiles, Robinson repeatedly tries to attach the associated criminals with Islam as the primary motive, despite these paedophiles exhibiting traits closely associated with White paedophiles.[n. 33]
His selective obsession can be traced back to 2012 when the UK erupted into hysteria about Asian paedophile gangs, compiled from an incomplete study. Out of 1,217 cases 43 were assigned to Pakistanis.[200] This represented only 3.5% of all cases according to the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP).[200] This therefore means that Pakistanis were only slightly over-represented in the data (Pakistanis make up 2.1% of the England population),[201] however, it is important to note that the report also went out of it's way to stress that national conclusions about ethnicity are not able to be drawn from the data because "it relies on limited nationwide information".[200] Out of the 346 recorded as Asian, only 11 were Bangladeshi, along with the 43 Pakistanis, with the overwhelming majority coming from the "Asian Other (AO)" community.[200] This latter group is overwhelmingly a non-Muslim ethnic group, comprising of 63% non-Muslims.[202] The Guardian reported on a separate analysis, commissioned by the Children's Commissioner in 2012 that found 1,514 offenders, of which 244 were Black, 415 were Asian, and 545 were White.[203] The ethnicity of 79% of the perpetrators was recorded, out of which only 35 were Pakistani, with the heritage of the OA group not recorded.[203] Area's that were later alleged as Pakistani paedophile hotspots were all isolated to Northern England.[204] Rotherham, where the worst abuse is alleged to have taken place, suffers from high levels of deprivation.[204] Therefore, cases involving Pakistani paedophiles were caused by socio-economic factors and not race.[203]

Richard Huckle molested 200 children in Muslim-majority Malaysia.
The controversy over Asian grooming gangs soon moved over to focus on Pakistani "Muslim grooming gangs". However, the truth was that these gangs were Pakistani but of Kashmiri origin; who are a subset of Pakistanis.[205] The phrase "grooming gang" itself is also a unique sound-bite attached to these Asian-origin paedophiles, which made the problem actually seem far bigger than it originally was; for instance, by far the area of most concern was Rotherham, where there were 1,400 victims,[206] claimed to have occurred between 1997 and 2013 (or 16 years); but even this was comparatively small compared to what Huckle had done. It is also clear that Pakistani Muslims are not or were not unique to these grooming cases and other grooming cases on a macroscropic scale throughout the UK.[207] The term ("grooming gang") is also itself a misnomer and actually represents a classical paedophile ring that had characteristics that were no different to those involving Whites. These rings were found in Aylesbury (where one out the six rapists was Sikh),[n. 34] Banbury (where three out of the six were Christian),[n. 35] Bristol (thirteen),[n. 36] Derby (where two of the six were Hindu and Christian),[n. 37] Halifax (sixteen),[n. 38] Keighley (all twelve of whom were Muslim),[n. 39] Oxford (seven),[n. 40] Peterborough (three of four who were White European Christians),[n. 41] Rochdale (nine),[n. 42] Rotherham (where two out of twenty were White Christian European women who supplied[208] the girls to the ring)[n. 43] and Telford (five).[n. 44] Thus, in total 95 Asians (0.008%) have been convicted of paedophilia amongst Pakistanis out of a population of 1.2 million.[209]

Stalking, Threatening & Attacking His Critics and Their Families

Robinson doesn't tolerate any criticism of him or his organisations. On several occasion he has gone out of his way to track down his critics and their families in order to silence them. The most notable has been Gary Hastings who between 2010 and 2017 hosted and reported on the EDL on their news site "EDL News".[210] Robinson however got the wrong man, Garry Hastings instead of Gary Hastings, and doxxed the man by posting up pictures of the man's house on his Twitter timeline.[210] The second was journalist and "Zelo Street" blog owner (which receives 100,000 reads per month),[211] Tim Fenton,[212] who found Robinson on his doorstep, with two men, accusing him of being a man called "Paul".[213] Robinson had made a 300 mile trip to the mans house, with the confrontation occurring "in the dead of night".[213] Fenton reported "Robinson’s appearance was designed to intimidate cannot be in any doubt: there was loud and persistent banging at the front door, high-intensity lights were shone into the front windows, and when I went to see what was kicking off...one of those high-intensity lights was shone into my face as Robinson introduced himself".[213] In yet another incident, a lawyer Robinson had hired, Ian McLoone, was talking to the press and named the village Robinson was from (something which Robinson had previously admitted to in the past).[214] This enraged Robinson, who terrorised the lawyer by tracking down his families address, and waited outside his home.[214] Robinson's activities are not limited to this, he has also stalked celebrities such as singer Tulisa, who's house he and his men spent an entire day and night outside of.[215]
Robinson travelled 300 miles to find Tim Fenton's personal home address, and intimidated him for several hours.

Tommy Robinson, who's real name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, is far-right/ring-wing activist that comes from Luton, England, United Kingdom, and who is known for his discrimination, and hatred of,[n. 45] Muslims. He is infamous for having lead the English Defence League, which "[a]t its height...was able to mobilise up to 5,000 in demonstrations that regularly deteriorated into violence...began to develop in an increasingly fascist direction, turning on socialists, trade unionists, student demonstrators and Occupy protestors as well as Muslims – its main target".[1] The rallies he personally lead cost the British taxpayers a total of £10 million (or $12.67 million dollars in 2017 dollar value[2]), and untold damages in destruction to property and healthcare, not to mention the long term costs including those of tourism.[3] He claims he is of working class background, though his real name is believed to be of upper-class origin, in contrast to the name he currently uses (which he had adopted as a pseudonym because he was scared of Muslims[4]). Robinson was born in 1982, and attended Putteridge High School and the highest educational attainment he has gotten was scraping 11 mediocre GCSE's (an "A" in maths apparently, but further claims he "never studied" for them).[4] He dropped out of high school at the age of 16 and has no university educational background (his lack of a formal education becomes evident given that he ardently believes Barack Obama—who served as president of the USA between 2008 and 2016—is a Muslim[5]).[4] He also believes in other wild conspiracy theories about Muslims, such as "creeping Sharia".[6]

History: Origins of Muslim and Irish Hatred

Origins of—and Evidence for—Muslim Hatred

His hatred of Muslims stems from the fact he was unable to do an aircraft engineering apprenticeship starting in 2003 after five years of high school.[4] However, in a drunken rampage, (he alleges) he violently attacked a police officer, and immediately lost it.[4] Robinson blamed his apprenticeship loss not on his own disgraceful behaviour, but on Muslims, because "as a result of tightened security measures after September 11[th], his criminal record meant he was blacklisted from working at airports".[4] Bitter, he set to working on a building site to earn some money, still not angry at his own stupidity, but developing a sense of self-victimisation which has followed him on to his 350,000 Twitter followers,[7] where he sees[n. 46] himself as a hero.[4][8] The Telegraph notes "[t]o many, he is little more than a cut-price demagogue in designer clobber who has spent four-and-a-half years inciting hatred against Muslims with his menacing and often violent rallies".[4] But the news report also revealed his hatred of Muslims also comes down to jealousy of the community spirit he feels is stronger with Muslims than with Whites, which has made him envious.[4] In an interview he remarked "[t]he mentality they [Muslims] have, I realised it when I went to the World Cup...When an Englishman out there gets in trouble, every other Englishman defends him. It’s the mindset, you’re away from home and he’s your brother. And that’s the brotherhood they have every day. You get in trouble outside a nightclub here, they’ll get out of their taxis, their chicken shops, they’ll come from everywhere. They don’t need to know each other".[4]

Irish Hatred & White Identity Crisis

Anti-Irish sentiment in the EDL.
Robinson also has a contradictive personality when it comes to his own ethnic heritage. Although he claims to be English, he is in actual fact half Scottish (from his fathers side) and half Irish (from his mothers side).[9] He however claims to be "proud" of his lineage but reporters have noted how his Twitter feed reveals a deep seated resentment towards his Irish blood.[9] For example, he has posted anti-Irish insults on social media (calling Irishmen "plastic paddies") and insinuated Ireland is a nation that is nothing more than impoverished rock; claiming "[my parents would be] in Ireland picking potatoes and eating cabbages [if they hadn't moved to England]".[9][10] He also condemns those who point out his Irish heritage, branding them "fools" and "wronguns".[9] Additionally he's threatened British Irish citizens directly with mob violence once remarking "...we are taking a tidy mob to England Ireland on 29th"; referring to a pre-planned fight he wanted to instigate.[9] During his time with the EDL, his group also staged anti-Irish protests.[11] The location, Liverpool, was significant because it is home to "many second and third generation Irish immigrants".[11] An EDL splinter group additionally created an anti-Irish poster who described the Irish ethnicity as "much like the Islamics" who "abuse their host nation [by supporting the IRA]".[11] As a result the Irish have been attacked by Robinson's group, with the problem at one point getting so worse that the mayor and police had to get involved. One pro-Irish activist noted "[i]t['s] happening because...there is no large Asian community in Liverpool so the Irish are an easy target".[11] Despite this, Robinson has laughed off his anti-Irish behaviour and statements.[n. 47]

Outright Fabrications, "I Don't Hate Muslims, Only the Extremist Ones" & Use of "Muzzrat" In Place of "Judenrat"

Robinson holding a gun the IDF gave him, on the Israeli occupied Syrian Golan Heights (2016).[12]
Robinson claims he doesn't hate all Muslims, but evidence has proven otherwise.[13] For instance, he believes Muslim women, racially-wise,[14] are ugly, making an exception by once remarking to a 15 year-old Muslim girl—who clearly had her birthday publicly displayed on her Twitter profile—that she was "pretty fit for a Muslim girl".[15] In another instance a British boxer attended a prayer session with his Muslim brother; Robinson lashed out at him branding him a "sell-out".[16] In another instance, an EDL member viciously declared that he wished Muslims would "burn in hell",[17] where Robinson responded by saying that he found that there was "nothing wrong with his speech".[18] Furthermore, he totally refuses to outright condemn members of the EDL who are ex-convicts, terrorists,[19][20] child-groomers, rapists,[21] paedophiles/child molesters,[15][22] football hooligans,[23][24] murderers,[25] wife-beaters,[26] White supremacists[n. 48] and racists.[27] He also justified[28] the terrorist attack against Muslims that occurred in Finsbury Park in 2017,[29] where Darren Osborne killed one Muslim.[30] Perhaps most sinister is Robinson having been allowed to visit Israel—where, despite his Nazi past—he has been welcomed by the Israeli military (which claims it is the "worlds most moral army"[31][32][33][34]) having taken photographs with them[35][36]—unsurprising, given that Israelis hate Muslims (where nearly half, or 48%, of Israelis want to ethnically cleanse Muslims from the region[37][38]), and where their military regularly[39] uses Muslim—even Muslim children[40][n. 49]—as human shields as per official policy.[41] He has also called Muslims "enemy combatants".[42]
Robinson called Muslims "Muzzrats"[n. 50] on his Twitter page.
Robinson has fabricated numerous stories about Muslims in order to further his anti-Muslim agenda. For instance after a terrorist incident in May 2017 in Manchester he tweeted a picture to his 300,000 followers that the "Manchester chief of police" was "accepting & posing with the Koran after the Manchester attack".[43] This wasn't the case, as the police immediately retorted back that the photo he tweeted was an older photograph taken on June 23rd, 2016, when the terrorist incident Robinson was attempting to libel the police photograph with occurred in 2017.[43] In another incident he made a libel against Muslims that they had desecrated a Christian cemetery, with the accusation coming from his autobiography.[44] At the "York Free Speech Forum" he showed a video of Muslims chanting "Yah Takbir", with the crowd responding back "Allah Hu Akbar", where Robinson lied by claiming that when this is translated the crowd was actually saying "death to all Jews".[45][46] In actual fact what they were saying was a "Takbir" where Muslims shout "God is the Greatest".[47] Another time he falsely claimed all Uber driver rapists are Muslims because "all Uber drivers in the UK are Muslim immigrants".[48] In yet another tweet in response to a story by the "Barnsley Chronicle" he claimed a British soldier was attacked by Muslims; saying "u know and we know it was Muslims! Yet u go out of your way to hide it"; to which the newspapers responded by silencing him with the fact that the soldier was attacked by a White Briton, to which he didn't respond.[49] He also calls Muslims "wife beaters", despite beating his own wife and attacking a police officer.[50]
Robinson used the anti-Semitic trope of "Jewrat" and changed it to "Muzzrat".
He also frequently discriminates against Muslims. Perhaps the most sinister comparison Robinson has made about Muslims is when he equated them to rats, branding all Muslims "muzzrats",[51][52] This comparison with rats is particularly relevant as the Nazis commonly used this in their anti-Semetic media; such as that in "Der Ewige Jude", which was a Nazi propaganda film which depicted the Jewish religious minority as gutter rats,[53] because of Jewish criminals. The film specifically began with the narrator saying, "Just as the rat is the lowest of animals, the Jew is the lowest of human beings".[53] Other things which he has tweeted out are extremely unfunny jokes that don't make any sense, such as "[h]ow do Muslims practice safe sex? They mark the goats and camels with a Red X that kick!". In another tweet he wrote "kids go 2 fancy dress parties as pirates who were killers,liars & cheats!Will kids in 20 yrs go 2 fancy dress parties dressed as Muslims then?".[54] Robinson has also called Muslims "inbred", claiming "50% of you [Muslims] marry your cousins",[55] ignoring the fact that even if this was true, 80% of the worlds marriages throughout history have been cousin marriages,[56] including that of evolutionary biologist Charles Darwin,[57] physicist Albert Einstein,[58] poet Edgar Allan Poe,[59] writer H.G. Wells,[60] US President Franklin D. Roosevelt,[61] American revolutionary John Adams,[62] US founding father Thomas Jefferson,[63][64] founder of the Buddhist religion Gautama Buddha,[65] Morse code inventor Samuel F. B. Morse[66] and Roman general Mark Antony.[67] Robinson has also threatened British Muslims with violence, and doesn't regard Muslims as British citizens,[n. 51] just as the Nazis didn't consider Jews German.[68]

Involvement with White Supremacists, Neo-Nazis and Terrorist Organisations

BNP: A Decade Long Secret Relationship & Associated Splinter Groups (c. 2004—c. 2015)

Nick Griffin joined the NF in 1974, then the BNP in 1999. He has a long history of racism, even in the BNP itself, when Robinson joined.
Robinson joined the BNP in 2004,[69] holding membership for 365 days; having admitted his ties on the BBC's "Sunday Politics"[70] However, in an extremely bizarre move, Robinson justified his membership by stating that he "didn’t know non-whites couldn’t join the organisation" and that he also "didn’t know Nick Griffin was in the National Front".[70] This doesn't make any sense given that the fundamental—and founding—principle of the BNP has always been opposition to the existence of people based on race.[71] Additionally, Griffin is widely known across the UK for his decades long membership with the National Front when he joined it in 1974 (which itself been active since the early 1970s; and which at it's peak, had 15,000 active members).[72] Griffin is also an extremely infamous White Power advocate, and known widely in the UK for his long history of racist remarks. For example, in the 1980s he stated, ""[w]e haven't given up on our principle [of] mono racial countries... mono ethnic countries". He also produced a leaflet which claimed "to [have] prove[n] that Jewish people controlled the British media and thereby were able to brainwash white British people into accepting multiculturalism" (and has also denied the Holocaust, preferring to call it the "holohoax").[72][73] Given this body of evidence, Robinson cannot claim he didn't know enough about the BNP both before and during his time with the party. This means that he actively supported it's racial hatred policies, and knew of the intensely racially charged and inflamed policies the BNP ran on during the national election cycle that suspiciously coincided with him obtaining paid membership to the party.
Where the BNP obtains the majority of it's votes from.
Indeed, and rather crucially, the 2005 General Election coincided directly to when he obtained his membership with the racist party; and perhaps more telling of why he cannot claim ignorance for the racial policies of the BNP are when the party was constantly campaigning for votes across the country during this time, with regular television appearances surrounding Griffin (who at this point had been it's leader/chairman for six years).[74] It is also interesting to note that the BNP increased their vote count dramatically by 145,721 votes from 47,129 in 2001, in the 2005 general election, collecting a grand total of 192,850 votes.[75] This was at a time when the UK's election voter turnout was the lowest in it's history for the past few decades at slightly above 60%. In the 2010 General Election, the BNP obtained a staggering 563,743 votes.[76] In 2015, the BNP obtained only 1,667 votes;[76] or a fall of 99.7%.[77] This large drop in support also coincided with the increased membership of the EDL, who's ranks swelled with ex-BNP members (at least 33% of the members of the EDL in 2011 were active BNP voters[78]),[79] something which only could have been achieved so rapidly, only if Robinson knew a lot of it's members long beforehand and actively recruited them continuously for the EDL. In 2012, most tellingly of all however, was that Robinson was directly involved with an off-shoot of the BNP—the "British Freedom Party"—serving as their vice-chairman,[80] attempting to get members of the EDL elected into parliament.[81] After the BNP's drastic decline in popularity, Robinson for the first time ever, tweeted his disdain for the BNP, saying "fuck the BNP".[82]

Terrorism: BNP Funders of the EDL & Trans-European Terrorist Links (c. 2009—c. 2013)

Ann 'Gaia' Marchini is a BNP funder and funded Robinson for years. Pictured here with Anti-Semite Richard Barnbrook (2008).
In December of 2011, the organisation "Unite Against Fascists" released a report on those funding Robinson, with his most significant sources of income coming from BNP funders, years after he supposedly "left" the BNP.[83] All of this information came from a defector named Paul Ray—a Neo-Nazi and Christian extremist—who exposed the network after having become severely disaffected with Robinson's leadership,[83] and who was for a long time in an arduous power struggle for control of the EDL with him.[84] These financiers have been Alan 'Lake' Ayling (who is a "former director of the Pacific Capital investment fund"' where "[u]nder the pseudonym Alan Lake, he penned the ominously-named “EDL Final Solution,” which advocates front organizations and illegal activities to undermine Muslims and their representatives"[85]),[83] Ann 'Gaia' Marchini (a multi-millionaire BNP financier,[85] also known under the alias of "Dominique Devaux"),[83] Chris 'Aeneas' Knowles,[83] Robert De Jonge (who also operates under the name of "Robert Bartholomeus"[86]) and Christine Brim.[83] Another important figure has been self-proclaimed racial theorist Edward 'Baron Bodissey' May—and chief radicaliser of Anders B. Brevik,[n. 52] Peder Jensen ("Fjordman")—who is head of the anti-Muslim[87] website "Gates of Vienna"—named after the Battle of Vienna in 1683; which is often touted as an Islamic vs. Western clash of civilization;[88] but ironically was only ever really majority fought only between Europeans (and allies of the Ottomans such as France), with some 25% of the soldiers involved being Muslim, and 75% being Christian.[89]
EDL-funder, Alan Ayling, publicly endorsed using terrorism to kill, financed Robinson, and may have financed Anders Brevik.
In 2009, the EDL was founded in a £500,000 pound flat in the upper-class Barbican flats in the City of London; inside a flat owned[n. 53] by Ayling (who is a Zionist[90]).[83][91] According to reports "[t]he founding meetings brought together...Lake...with Ray, Stephen Yaxley Lennon...and his cousin Kevin Carroll...‘Gaia’, named by the Sunday Times as Ann Marchini, was also at the founding caucus".[83] The revelation of this clandestine meeting is important because it highlights the racial and violent political nature behind the formation of the EDL, and that of Robinson's selective targeting of the British Muslim community. Ayling even later outed himself as an active supporter of terrorism; promoting the elimination of those who disagree with him, once writing an entire article on his website "4 Freedoms" that called for the killing/murdering of the Archbishop of Canterbury and the British Prime Minister as well as the Deputy Prime Minister.[92] The police however have never charged him for supporting or encouraging terrorism (but they have with Muslims[n. 54]). Nevertheless, Ayling was able to fund the EDL secretively using both his salaried job (having earned £70,000 pounds per year) plus uncapped bonuses; but his identity eventually came to light in 2011,[n. 55][93][94] when a terrorist attack occurred in Norway (with the evidence strongly[n. 56] suggesting that Ayling may have financed himself[n. 57]).[95] His employer knew of his activities as far back as January 2011, when Ayling was first suspended from his job[96] eventually being fired in August 2012[97] (because his bank wanted to expand into Muslim countries[96]).
The Utoya massacre was inspired by Ayling's idealogy and those of his friends. Total dead: 92.
His close friend/anti-Muslim associate Chris Knowles (the EDL's chief strategist) was also fired from Leeds Council a week prior.[97] After the collapse of the most important figures in the EDL, a clearer picture emerged of Robinson's associations. The terrorist connections Robinson and his funders had had became extremely relevant. The fact that Ayling personally knew of Fjordman and Bartholomeus, both of whom had connections to terrorists; the former for having radicalised Anders Behring Brevik[n. 58] and the second for having actively supported a Jewish terrorist group,[98][99] indicated how toxic Robinson's ties to the EDL had become. Brevik had murdered 77 people in Norway (69 of them children on Utoya Island in Norway and the rest in a bomb blast in the city of Oslo),[100] and had mentioned Fjordman at least 111[101]—114 times in his manifesto (along with 116 mentions of JihadWatch and 86 mentions of Gates of Vienna),[102] clearly indicative of how much he had been radicalised.[102] Even after the incident Robinson praised Breivik.[103] However, mired with the downfall of Ayling, and his own soon-to-be financial problems, Robinson chose to finally abandon the EDL for good. He claimed to be apologetic[104] to the Islamic/Muslim community but falsely painted himself as some sort of reformed character.[105] He began being seen with his cousin Kevin Carroll alongside staff members of the Quilliam Foundation. However, amidst this smokescreen, the media were to beginning to notice Robinson and his cousin's anti-Muslim rhetoric begin again;[105] this time in supporting the genocide of the Rohingyas.[106][107][108]

Loss of Funding, Tax-Robbery, Criminal History, Tax Dodging & Eventual Aid From Quilliam (c. 2010—c. 2015)

Tommy Robinson's real name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon and left the EDL because of money problems.
Robinson's financial history is very questionable and was highly likely the reason he left the EDL in 2013; given the amount of illegal activity he has engaged in.[8] He alleges that he cares about his country but refuses to pay taxes at all.[8] During his apprenticeship, he alleges he worked for a Merrill Lynch contractor where he was paid £70,000 to £80,000 pounds per year, and even had six people employed by him.[8] By 2010, because of his public appearances, the police were alerted to his financial history.[8] The police first investigated his sun-tanning shop, which was bringing in £1,500 pounds in cash per week and £500 pounds in credit card receipts.[8] The police analysed all of his electronic paperwork, which were also tracked through SolarTrack technology, and found that Robinson had avoided contributing to his country by avoiding £137,000 pounds in tax (this figure did not include the lack of tax paid by cash in hand).[8] A court case ensued, where he was eventually ordered to repay back £125,000 pounds.[8] In November 2013, he was also convicted of a £160,000 pound mortgage fraud,[109] and given 18 months in jail (but was out in 6 months).[8] He was part, in total, of a tax-dodging gang, one of whom (Deborah Rothschild) racked up £640,000 pounds in fraud.[110] His wife was also arrested for another tax dodging crime.[8] A mere 6 months prior to his sentencing he quit the EDL and joined Quilliam, which calls itself an "anti-extremism" charity, founded by Maajid Nawaz, an anti-Muslim extremist who pays himself £77,438 per year.[111][112] Robinson's move was therefore for financial reasons not regret.
Maajid Nawaz with Tommy Robinson. When Robinson left the EDL, Quilliam had already converted itself against Muslim interests.
This was confirmed in 2015, when Robinson admitted that he was paid by them to leave the EDL.[113] Quilliam itself was formed in April 2008, and was proped up by private donors from the Middle-east Gulf.[114] After a year, funding was cut, whereupon the UK Government decided to come to their aid.[114] The British government granted £675,000 pounds for the period of 2008—2009, and £390,000 for the period of 2009—2010.[114] Nawaz began to reach out to private donors during this time, where it was even rumoured Gaddafi had been funding them.[114] Between 2010—2011, Nawaz was given £159,000 in funding, but at the end of the year, the British government declared funding will now be cut totally, apart from a smaller cash injection of £27,000 pounds.[114] The year 2011 saw Quilliam totally change sides, and instead go against British Muslim interests.[114] Funding now came from spurious foreign charities and organisations such as the "Stuart Family Foundation" (SFF) and the "Templeton Foundation" (TF); who are intensely right wing groups found in the United States.[114] A total of $250,000 dollars was provided; and rather very unusually and out of character, the "former Director of the Conservative Friends of Israel Robert Halfon also tables a motion requesting continued Government funding of Quilliam", to which the government offered £40,000 pounds.[114] This was the year that marked the first time Nawaz advocated for bombing Muslim countries.[114] In the same timeframe, Quilliam US was registered as a charity, one of whom's founders is a war profiteer, Chad Sweet of the Chertoff Group.[114]
Majid Nawaz is a traitor to British Muslims everywhere; for his support for the Palestinian genocide.
|
Maajid Nawaz himself is an example of a self-hating Muslim[n. 59] who is regularly known to appease and legitamize the views of Islamophobes.[n. 60] In fact, he went out of his way to actually work with Sam Harris, co-authoring a book with him, "Islam and the Future of Tolerance".[115] This is in spite of the fact that Harris is known to virulently hate Muslims, going as far as having said "we are at war with Muslims" and advocating for mass genocide, terrorism and violence against Muslims. Virtually all of Harris's "thought experiments" additionally, always routinely end up with Muslim men, women and children either dying or dead;[116] which Harris rubs off as "colateral damage", in stark contrast to how he sees non-Muslim victims, if Muslims did the same thing.[117] Harris is very large in the atheist community (despite being a Jewish Supremacist), having 646,000 followers.[118] Nawaz has also shared platforms and worked with Douglas Murray, of the "Henry Jackson Society", which campaigns to make "conditions for Muslims in Europe" to "be made harder across the board".[119] Murray himself has connections to Robert Spencer, and has also worked with the EDL (in fact praising their pogroms[120] in Muslim areas across the UK and inviting them to his conferences).[121] Nawaz has even tried to get his own brother jailed over a personal argument he had had with him by falsely painting him "as a would-be suicide bomber"', endangering his brother's entire family and reputation.[122] Worst of all, he has tried to defraud, defame and physically damage the British Muslim community by compiling entire registers of Muslims for the purposes of false witch-hunts.[123]

Return to Neo-Nazi Roots: PEGIDA (Patriotische Europaeer Gegen die Islamisierung des Abendlandes) (c. 2015—Present)

PEGIDA leader, who Robinson had links with, paying Hitler homage by dressing up as him.
After the debacle and eventual facade that was revealed with Quilliam, Robinson joined up with PEGIDA, which had it's origins in Germany. PEGIDA ("Patriotische Europaeer Gegen die Islamisierung des Abendlandes"; which in English stands for "Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamisation of the West") was a far-right street organisation that was created by Lutz Bachmann,[124] on October 11th, 2014.[125] PEGIDA was formed in response to opposition to the existance of refugees in Germany, with their demonstrations accumulating 20,000 protestors.[84] Crucially, it also included Neo-Nazis.[126] Prior to it's formation, the German far-right were looking for an organisation in order to gather around.[84] The first of these were the "HoGeSa" ("Hooligans Against Salafists"), who managed to attract 5,000 Neo-Nazis in Cologne.[84] In 2016, a defector—Rene Jahn—who belonged to the group exposed the groups nefarious activities.[127] Such activities have included spreading false Islamophobic propaganda in order to whip up racial hatred; which included spreading stories that Kindergartens were banned from serving pork, Sharia law was being implemented in Germany and churches were being turned into mosques.[127] The PEGIDA movement eventually found it's way to the UK in 2015.[84] Bachman was eventually exposed as a Nazi himself, when he dressed up as Hitler and took a selfie of himself.[128] Ironically, Bachmann fled Germany as a refugee and settled in Tenerife, Spain.[129] When Robinson launched PEGIDA in the UK, it totally failed to attract the support Robinson thought it would.[130]

Joins the alt-right/alt-White Rebel Media (c. 2017—Present)

Levant is known as a big-mouth, playing the anti-Semitic card, and having a tiny brain; caricatured[131] here.
In 2017, Robinson joined the "Rebel Media",[132] which is a Canadian alt-right/alt-White media blog that portrays itself as a news organisation in a similar way to that of "Breitbart" in the USA.[133] It was set up by Ezra Levant, who is of Jewish origin, and given that he is an anti-Muslim[n. 61] zealot,[134][n. 62] his organisation reflects a severe deep-seated hatred and intolerance of Muslims amongst Jews in Canada. If someone disagrees with him, he often plays the anti-Semite card.[135] The blog itself also claims to be pro-Zionist;[n. 63] and regards Palestinians who defend their homes from Israel's brutal ethnic cleansing (shoah[136])[137] and democratic apartheid,[138] as "Islamic militants".[139] In an attempt to promote the Jewish take-over of Palestine (or what is left of Palestine) amongst his correspondents, he funded a propaganda tour of Israel, which ironically made one of them so angry at the "shit" he was being fed by Israelis, that Israel itself was actually turning him anti-Semitic.[139] Gavin McInnes, who is no friend of Muslims (having called them "inbred" and supported a call for a violent crusade against Palestinian Muslims[140]), reported it was "basically a brainwashing trip...the Israeli government paid for this...but I think they were mostly Israelis who assumed we are gonna listen to all this shit we get fed. And that is having the reverse effect on me...".[139] The blog has been particularly problematic in other things, given that they have repeatedly promoted and spread false information throughout their lifespan. This has ranged from defending the KKK,[n. 64] falsely accusing Muslim refugees of terrorism,[n. 65] to denying rape culture in the West,[n. 66] science and climate change.[n. 67]

"Uncle Toms" & "I'm Not Racist Because..."

"I'm not racist because I like Sikhs, they're well integrated in the UK"

Deepa Singh, of the Sikh Youth Birmingham, who has links to Khalistani terrorist organisations.
Robinson's ties to Sikh organisations has also been one of the hallmarks of his claims that he isn't racist.[141] He often praises Sikhs—for what he sees—as a minority that has integrated well into British society, frequently contrasting them[142] against British Muslims in an effort to bastardise the latter. According to one independent study, 46% of Muslims were found to have fully integrated into the UK, compared to 48% of Hindus and 39% of Sikhs; which meant that Sikhs were far less integrated than most of the Asian population.[143] Robinson however ignores such empirical evidence, outright refusing to even bother challenging his selective narrative. He also ignores the fact that Sikhs remain far more ghettoised/isolated than British Muslims;[n. 68] with another being the intolerance of Sikh males to other Britons, who see Sikh females marrying non-Sikh men as an abomination (and which for Muslim men, has manifested itself into a dangerous conspiracy theory about kidnapping/grooming/forced-conversions; which has no evidence[144]). In one instance, fifty-five men of "Sikh Youth UK"[145] (formerly "Sikh Youth Birmingham")[146] violently stormed into a wedding, brandished swords/knives, and terrorised wedding guests;[147] ending only when the Sikh fanatics were arrested by the police.[148] Another widely problematic issue has been that of forcibly segregating disabled people,[149] as they are regarded as having accumulated "bad karma" in their previous life.[n. 69] However, most significant has been the lack of rights given to women by Sikh males such as divorce, as it is banned[150] in Sikhism (and can only be obtained under non-Sikh civil laws ie in a non-Sikh country[151]).
Mohan Singh, of the Sikh Awareness Society, with the EDL.
Recently Robinson featured "Sikh Youth UK" in a video filmed for the alt-right/alt-White Canadian "Rebel Media", where the video in question was nothing more than a circle-jerk[152] of praise for Sikhs. This open acceptance of video-graphic praise from Robinson was designed to reinforce the belief amongst Sikhs that they are more integrated/accepted than Muslims amongst Whites; which is a common—albeit factually incorrect—belief even amongst Sikhs themselves.[153] However, this isn't the only instance where Sikhs have turned "uncle Tom"; indeed the Sikh EDL Division, who at one point had 12,000 likes[154] on their Facebook page, was formed by Sikh fanatic Gurmat Singh Kalarai.[155] Perhaps more sinister is that mainstream Sikh organisations have recently begun to give Robinson an unchallenged platform, despite his long association with racist groups and his own racist history himself.[154] The Sikh Channel for instance gave Robinson a full one-hour interview in April 2015, where Robinson did nothing more than attack Muslims.[154] Mohan Singh of the "Sikh Awareness Society", also shared a platform with Robinson (despite previously denying his links to him),[156] at an anti-Muslim hate rally[157] ironically named "UK Against Hate" (organised by "Rebel Media") that was full of EDL members, racists and anti-Muslim protestors.[158] Approximately 1,000 of them were in attendance, with chants such as "[y]ou're not English anymore" being especially common.[159] Rallies such as this have ironically contributed to a rise in Islamophobic attacks against Muslims and non-Muslims like Sikhs (where the latter make up as much as 28% of its victims).[160][n. 70]

"I'm not racist because I like Sikhs, they fought for Britain during WWI & WWII"

Manga Khan's letter sent home to India during World War I from Britain.[167]
One of the most common tropes Robinson uses to praise Sikhs are their military contribution during the World Wars, whilst ignoring the far bigger and more significant contribution by Muslims; portraying his praise as if the Sikh contribution is somehow unique. However during World War I, a total of 885,000 Muslims were recruited into the British, French and Russian armies, of which 89,000 were killed between 1914—1918.[161] Approximately 34,000 of the dead were Arab (280,000 had served),[161] along with 400,000 Muslims who served in the British Indian army alone (comprising of 27%—31%[n. 71] of all Indian troops).[161] The Sikh contribution was only 100,000 (6.7%—7.7%).[162] Additionally, there were 800,000 Hindu soldiers (53.3%—61.5%).[162] Many of these same troops (and more), would go on two decades later and fight once again in Europe.[161] For the oncoming decades, years after both World Wars, the sacrifice of the Muslim soldiers were largely forgotten and any and all commemoration of their efforts were wiped from the records.[163] During the 50th anniversary of WWI in 1964 for example, there was hardly any mention of these soldiers in the British press.[163] Even in India they were forgotten,[163] but for a different reason; that of shame for having helped out the British empire,[163] given it's plethora of broken promises, instigation of deliberate famines,[164] mass violence and massacres,[165] and uncaring attitudes towards the lives of the peoples of the sub-continent (especially concerning the horrendous mismanagement[166] of the Indian partition that resulted in the deaths of millions[n. 72] in 1947).[n. 73]
Khuddad Khan.[168]
Similarly more Muslims fought for the British during WWII than Sikhs did, comprising around 37.5% of the military by January 1st, 1940, which remained steadily consistent throughout, with the percentage never falling below 31% up to July 1st, 1947.[169] At their lowest (January 1st, 1940) they numbered some 92,841 soldiers; and at their peak (January 1st, 1945), they numbered some 447,580 Muslims that were fighting against the Nazis.[169] For the Sikhs, it was 31,797 and 94,270 respectively.[169] Overall, a total of 2.5 million Indian troops were deployed, consisting of 78 infantry battalions, 20 Gurkha battalions, 18 Cavalry units, 34,500 British officers and 15,740 Indian officers.[169] Of this, a total of 24,338 were killed in battle, 64,354 were wounded, 11,754 were missing and 79,489 were captured as prisoners of war.[169][216][171] Altogether during both World Wars, they won 31 Victoria Crosses (with the first one ever awarded to a Muslim named Khuddad Khan in 1914[168]) and 4,028 gallantry awards.[169] Muslims served in the "1st Punjab Infantry Battalion" (50%), "2nd Punjab Infantry Battalion" (34%), the "Madras Infantry Battalion" (25%), the "Indian Grenadiers Infantry Battalion" (50%), the "Rajput Rifles Infantry Battalion" (34%), the "Rajput Infantry Battalion" (50%), the "8th Punjab Infantry Battalion" (50%), the "Jat Infantry Battalion" (50%), the "Baluch Infantry Battalion" (75%), the "Sikh Infantry Battalion" (25%), the "Frontier Force Regiment Infantry Battalion" (50%), the "Frontier Force Rifles Infantry Battalion" (50%), the "14th Punjab Infantry Battalion" (50%), the "15th Punjab Infantry Battalion" (50%) and the "16th Punjab Infantry Battalion" (34%).[169] Only 2% of the British population are aware of the Muslim contribution.[162]

Involvement with Mainstream Hindu Organisations

Mayank Banerjee, who was president of the Oxford Union, actively tried to make Robinson more mainstream and respectable.
Certain figures in the Hindu community have also shown sympathy towards Robinson's discriminatory views, and have been particularly problematic in trying to push for more communalist politics in the UK. One of the most significant has been Mayank Banerjee, who served as the "Oxford Union President", who invited Robinson to the University in order to give him a platform to air his Islamophobic and biased views, unchallenged in November 2014.[172] This is particularly important given that May 2014 was the year where a Hindu extremist, known as the "Butcher of Gujurat",[173] Narendra Modi of the BJP party was elected Prime Minister of India.[174] Banerjee justified his agenda disingenuously by claiming "[t]he Union stands by the invitation to Mr Robinson and we would like to reiterate that an invitation from the Union is not an endorsement of any particular agenda".[175] The anti-Neo Nazi protest group "Oxford Unite Against Facism (OUAF)" protested, and highlighted that Robinson had "organised and lead [sic] violent racist demonstrations and waged a campaign of demonisation of Muslims" and "continues to incite racial hatred against Muslims" today.[175] Additionally the "National Council of Hindu Temples UK" invited Robinson in 2016 claiming to want to have a "respectful dialogue" with him but actually "wanted him to talk about why UK Hindus should be afraid of Muslims".[141][176] Robinson's invitation is unusual because a far more pressing concern amongst British Hindus is caste discrimination,[177] where 20% of Hindus have been affected.[178] Things are so bad that Hindus have engaged in slavery; in one case in Milton Keynes a lower caste Hindu was paid £0.11 pennies per hour by her high caste Hindu employers.[178]

Robinson's Quote Mining of Historical Figures on Islam

Gladstone's quote had been widely distributed and shared on far-right Facebook pages.
Robinson often has a reactionary habit of bringing up Winston Churchill and William E. Gladstone's views on Islam and Muslims in order to encourage others to discriminate against them; both of whom were British Prime Ministers; the former between 1940—1955 and the latter between 1868—1894.[179][180] He uses this as evidence of how evil Muslims are, numerous times, and often on Twitter.[181] However using both of these British heavyweight politicians is problematic given that they were inherently immoral, not to mention the fact that they were racist, imperialist and hypocrites. Robinson's most oft quote has been when Churchill allegedly said, "[h]ow dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries ... Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce...The influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it" in 1899.[182] Churchill then later contradicted himself,[183] by almost converting to Islam years later.[184] Churchill even provided £100,000 pounds British tax-payer money, in funding, in order to build a mosque in London in 1940.[182] Robinson also used Gladstones quote that "[a]s long as there is this book [the Quran], there will be no peace in the world".[185] However, Gladstone himself was anything but peaceful; he owned 2,500 slaves who were treated horrendously[186] as well as having supported[187][188] the pro-slavery/pro-racist slave owning Confederacy in the "American Civil War" of 1861—1865.[189] Essentially, "[h]is stance on slavery echoed that of his father, who was one of the largest slave owners in the British West Indies...".[190]
Russia's most famous writer, Leo Tolstoy, and non-violent activist. Mahatma Gandhi. regarded Islam very highly, amongst others.
Even if Robinson's quote-mining was legitimate, a litany of other quotes from more accomplished individuals could easily dismiss his allegations against Islam and Muslims. For example, Alexander Pushkin is noted to have said "I take pleasure in the beauty of the Quran".[191] Leo Tolstoy said "I am very sympathetic to those who change religion and become Muslims...all sensible people without doubt will choose Islam with its simple declaration of belief".[191] The Dalai Llama has stated "I always come forth, with a defense of Islam...[because] I understand Islam".[192] H.G. Wells said that "[t]he Islamic teachings have left great traditions for equitable and gentle dealings and behavior, and inspire people with nobility and tolerance. These are human teachings of the highest order and at the same time practicable. These teachings brought into existence a society in which hard-heartedness and collective oppression and injustice were the least as compared with all other societies preceding it...Islam is replete with gentleness, courtesy, and fraternity".[192] Mahatma Gandhi once wrote "I wanted to know the best of the life of one who holds today an undisputed sway over the hearts of millions of mankind… I became more than ever convinced that it was not the sword that won a place for Islam in those days in the scheme of life. It was the rigid simplicity, the utter self-effacement of the Prophet the scrupulous regard for pledges, his intense devotion to his friends and followers, his intrepidity, his fearlessness, his absolute trust in God and in his own mission. These and not the sword carried everything before them and surmounted every obstacle".[192]

Robinson's views of "Muslim" Paedophiles vs. White Paedophiles

Robinson only cares about White children being molested. This is what he thinks about Muslim children.
What particularly seems to get under Robinson's skin are non-White paedophile rings,[193][194] despite the fact that White men over-represent global paedophilia and serial killer cases,[n. 74][n. 75][n. 76] which as of July 2017, Robinson has still never addressed or protested against.[195] His outrage appears only to be reserved for non-White paedophiles.[193][195] This is unsurprising giving that the EDL itself was full of paedophiles,[196] which Robinson deliberately ignored for years when he was leading the EDL (and even since leaving the EDL he has never addressed why he has kept quiet about the child abuse occurring under his watch). Neither has he challenged the deeply sinister culture of White men visiting South East Asia solely for the purpose of raping and molesting children; such as in one case where Richard Huckle was found to have raped and molested 200 children when he moved to Muslim-majority[197] Malaysia permanently in 2011. Robinson remained silent, either because he didn't care or he approved of it, but what is clear is that he did not outright publicly condemn it, given that it is the worst case of paedphilia in British history. All of this is of particular concern given that the "National Crime Agency" (NCA) has (under[198])estimated 750,000 (out of 31.2 million) British men are paedophiles;[199] with at least 250,000 actively looking for sex with pre-pubescent children.[199] However, when it comes to Asian origin paedophiles, Robinson repeatedly tries to attach the associated criminals with Islam as the primary motive, despite these paedophiles exhibiting traits closely associated with White paedophiles.[n. 77]
Robinson caught flirting with a 15 year old Muslim girl, who's date of birth was clearly found on her profile.
His selective obsession can be traced back to 2012 when the UK erupted into hysteria about Asian paedophile gangs, compiled from an incomplete study. Out of 1,217 cases 43 were assigned to Pakistanis.[200] This represented only 3.5% of all cases according to the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP).[200] This therefore means that Pakistanis were only slightly over-represented in the data (Pakistanis make up 2.1% of the England population),[201] however, it is important to note that the report also went out of it's way to stress that national conclusions about ethnicity are not able to be drawn from the data because "it relies on limited nationwide information".[200] Out of the 346 recorded as Asian, only 11 were Bangladeshi, along with the 43 Pakistanis, with the overwhelming majority coming from the "Asian Other (AO)" community.[200] This latter group is overwhelmingly a non-Muslim ethnic group, comprising of 63% non-Muslims.[202] The Guardian reported on a separate analysis, commissioned by the Children's Commissioner in 2012 that found 1,514 offenders, of which 244 were Black, 415 were Asian, and 545 were White.[203] The ethnicity of 79% of the perpetrators was recorded, out of which only 35 were Pakistani, with the heritage of the OA group not recorded.[203] Area's that were later alleged as Pakistani paedophile hotspots were all isolated to Northern England.[204] Rotherham, where the worst abuse is alleged to have taken place, suffers from high levels of deprivation.[204] Therefore, cases involving Pakistani paedophiles were caused by socio-economic factors and not race.[203]
Richard Huckle molested 200 children in Muslim-majority Malaysia.
The controversy over Asian grooming gangs soon moved over to focus on Pakistani "Muslim grooming gangs". However, the truth was that these gangs were Pakistani but of Kashmiri origin; who are a subset of Pakistanis.[205] The phrase "grooming gang" itself is also a unique sound-bite attached to these Asian-origin paedophiles, which made the problem actually seem far bigger than it originally was; for instance, by far the area of most concern was Rotherham, where there were 1,400 victims,[206] claimed to have occurred between 1997 and 2013 (or 16 years); but even this was comparatively small compared to what Huckle had done. It is also clear that Pakistani Muslims are not or were not unique to these grooming cases and other grooming cases on a macroscropic scale throughout the UK.[207] The term ("grooming gang") is also itself a misnomer and actually represents a classical paedophile ring that had characteristics that were no different to those involving Whites. These rings were found in Aylesbury (where one out the six rapists was Sikh),[n. 78] Banbury (where three out of the six were Christian),[n. 79] Bristol (thirteen),[n. 80] Derby (where two of the six were Hindu and Christian),[n. 81] Halifax (sixteen),[n. 82] Keighley (all twelve of whom were Muslim),[n. 83] Oxford (seven),[n. 84] Peterborough (three of four who were White European Christians),[n. 85] Rochdale (nine),[n. 86] Rotherham (where two out of twenty were White Christian European women who supplied[208] the girls to the ring)[n. 87] and Telford (five).[n. 88] Thus, in total 95 Asians (0.008%) have been convicted of paedophilia amongst Pakistanis out of a population of 1.2 million.[209]

Stalking, Threatening & Attacking His Critics and Their Families

Robinson travelled 300 miles to find Tim Fenton's personal home address, and intimidated him for several hours.
Robinson doesn't tolerate any criticism of him or his organisations. On several occasion he has gone out of his way to track down his critics and their families in order to silence them. The most notable has been Gary Hastings who between 2010 and 2017 hosted and reported on the EDL on their news site "EDL News".[210] Robinson however got the wrong man, Garry Hastings instead of Gary Hastings, and doxxed the man by posting up pictures of the man's house on his Twitter timeline.[210] The second was journalist and "Zelo Street" blog owner (which receives 100,000 reads per month),[211] Tim Fenton,[212] who found Robinson on his doorstep, with two men, accusing him of being a man called "Paul".[213] Robinson had made a 300 mile trip to the mans house, with the confrontation occurring "in the dead of night".[213] Fenton reported "Robinson’s appearance was designed to intimidate cannot be in any doubt: there was loud and persistent banging at the front door, high-intensity lights were shone into the front windows, and when I went to see what was kicking off...one of those high-intensity lights was shone into my face as Robinson introduced himself".[213] In yet another incident, a lawyer Robinson had hired, Ian McLoone, was talking to the press and named the village Robinson was from (something which Robinson had previously admitted to in the past).[214] This enraged Robinson, who terrorised the lawyer by tracking down his families address, and waited outside his home.[214] Robinson's activities are not limited to this, he has also stalked celebrities such as singer Tulisa, who's house he and his men spent an entire day and night outside of.[215]

Moreover, Ray leads an anti-Islam group called The Ancient Order of the Templar Knights.68 Ray argues that he has been framed and that Breivik has merely copied his ideas.

While not saying this directly, he did say that he was inspired by him, given that the EDL member had regularly met up with him. Furthermore 25% of the 1,000 contacts that Brevik had personally emailed his manifesto ramblings to were British citizens of both the EDL and the BNP.

  15. ^ Even though Maajid Nawaz claims to be a "Muslim reformer", his actions have actually shown him exhibit significant self-hate, and traitorous behaviours towards Muslims. For example he works for people and integrates himself with those who hate Islam and Muslims the most, the types of people who support exceptional repeated military violence against Muslim nations;
    Quote: "Today, instead of supporting the cause of Quran-thumping diehards, he’s ingratiated himself in the growing union of neoconservatives and hawkish liberals who believe in Western exceptionalism and the efficacy of power, especially military power, to expand its influence and protect its interests. He has found in them an opportunity to expand his platform, and they, in him, a veneer that deflects accusations of Islamophobia and Western triumphalism by fixating not on Islam per se but on the alleged threat posed by its foreign “ism” affix: Islamism."

  16. ^ He has also attempted to run the Muslim community into the ground, made accusations without evidence and smeared the entire Muslim community in the eyes of the UK population as "terrorist" like (his claims have never proven true: see end of paragraph). For example, according to the Southern Poverty Law Centre;
    Quote: Maajid Nawaz is a British activist and part of the “ex-radical” circuit of former Islamists who use that experience to savage Islam. His story, which has been told repeatedly in the British and American press and in testimony to legislators as well, sounds compelling enough — Nawaz says he grew up being attacked by neo-Nazi skinheads in the United Kingdom, spent almost four years in an Egyptian prison after joining a supposedly nonviolent Islamist group, but had a change of heart while imprisoned and then returned to England to work against the radicalization of Muslims. But major elements of his story have been disputed by former friends, members of his family, fellow jihadists and journalists, and the evidence suggests that Nawaz is far more interested in self-promotion and money than in any particular ideological dispute. He told several different versions of his story, emphasizing that he was deradicalized while in Egypt — even though he in fact continued his Islamist agitation for months after returning. After starting the Quilliam Foundation, which he describes as an anti-extremism think tank, Nawaz sent a secret list to a top British security official that accused “peaceful Muslim groups, politicians, a television channel and a Scotland Yard unit of sharing the ideology of terrorists,” according to The Guardian. His Quilliam Foundation received more than 1.25 million pounds from the British government, but the government eventually decided to stop funding it. One of Nawaz’s biggest purported coups was getting anti-Muslim extremist Tommy Robinson to quit as head of the violence-prone English Defence League, trumpeting his departure at a press conference. But Robinson later said Quilliam had paid him some 8,000 British pounds to allow Nawaz to take credit for what he already planned to do. Shortly afterward, Robinson returned to anti-Muslim agitation with other groups.

    When Scotland Yard first saw the list their agents in the "Muslim Contact Unit" recognised what Maajid Nawaz was actually doing: an official who worked with the Muslim community, and who was familiar with those on the list, stated:
    Quote: "An official with Scotland Yard’s Muslim Contact Unit told The Guardian that “[t]he list demonises a whole range of groups that in my experience have made valuable contributions to counter-terrorism.”"

    To add insult to injury Nawaz didn't want the list to be made public. Scotland Yard made it public anyway, as they were so shocked at the the unfounded allegations Nawaz had made.
    Quote: ""This is a truly shocking document, and it is little wonder that the Quilliam Foundation marked it as being not for public disclosure. In effect, Quilliam – a body funded very generously by the government through Prevent – are attempting to set themselves up as arbiters of who is and is not an acceptable Muslim. Their document specifically contains a McCarthy-type list of large and established Muslim organisations that they regard as suspect and smears them as being 'Islamists'." Robert Lambert, who co-founded and led Scotland Yard's Muslim Contact Unit, said: "The list demonises a whole range of groups that in my experience have made valuable contributions to counter-terrorism." He said he had never seen such a list before, warned that it could damage Muslim confidence in the government, and said the meaning of the list was clear: "They are arguing these are either witting or unwitting fellow travellers, providing the mood music for the terrorists.""

For example he works for people and integrates himself with those who hate Islam and Muslims the most, the types of people who support exceptional repeated military violence against Muslim nations;
    Quote: "Today, instead of supporting the cause of Quran-thumping diehards, he’s ingratiated himself in the growing union of neoconservatives and hawkish liberals who believe in Western exceptionalism and the efficacy of power, especially military power, to expand its influence and protect its interests. He has found in them an opportunity to expand his platform, and they, in him, a veneer that deflects accusations of Islamophobia and Western triumphalism by fixating not on Islam per se but on the alleged threat posed by its foreign “ism” affix: Islamism."

  60. ^ He has also attempted to run the Muslim community into the ground, made accusations without evidence and smeared the entire Muslim community in the eyes of the UK population as "terrorist" like (his claims have never proven true: see end of paragraph). For example, according to the Southern Poverty Law Centre;
    Quote: Maajid Nawaz is a British activist and part of the “ex-radical” circuit of former Islamists who use that experience to savage Islam. His story, which has been told repeatedly in the British and American press and in testimony to legislators as well, sounds compelling enough — Nawaz says he grew up being attacked by neo-Nazi skinheads in the United Kingdom, spent almost four years in an Egyptian prison after joining a supposedly nonviolent Islamist group, but had a change of heart while imprisoned and then returned to England to work against the radicalization of Muslims. But major elements of his story have been disputed by former friends, members of his family, fellow jihadists and journalists, and the evidence suggests that Nawaz is far more interested in self-promotion and money than in any particular ideological dispute. He told several different versions of his story, emphasizing that he was deradicalized while in Egypt — even though he in fact continued his Islamist agitation for months after returning. After starting the Quilliam Foundation, which he describes as an anti-extremism think tank, Nawaz sent a secret list to a top British security official that accused “peaceful Muslim groups, politicians, a television channel and a Scotland Yard unit of sharing the ideology of terrorists,” according to The Guardian. His Quilliam Foundation received more than 1.25 million pounds from the British government, but the government eventually decided to stop funding it. One of Nawaz’s biggest purported coups was getting anti-Muslim extremist Tommy Robinson to quit as head of the violence-prone English Defence League, trumpeting his departure at a press conference. But Robinson later said Quilliam had paid him some 8,000 British pounds to allow Nawaz to take credit for what he already planned to do. Shortly afterward, Robinson returned to anti-Muslim agitation with other groups.

    When Scotland Yard first saw the list their agents in the "Muslim Contact Unit" recognised what Maajid Nawaz was actually doing: an official who worked with the Muslim community, and who was familiar with those on the list, stated:
    Quote: "An official with Scotland Yard’s Muslim Contact Unit told The Guardian that “[t]he list demonises a whole range of groups that in my experience have made valuable contributions to counter-terrorism.”"

    To add insult to injury Nawaz didn't want the list to be made public. Scotland Yard made it public anyway, as they were so shocked at the the unfounded allegations Nawaz had made.
    Quote: ""This is a truly shocking document, and it is little wonder that the Quilliam Foundation marked it as being not for public disclosure. In effect, Quilliam – a body funded very generously by the government through Prevent – are attempting to set themselves up as arbiters of who is and is not an acceptable Muslim. Their document specifically contains a McCarthy-type list of large and established Muslim organisations that they regard as suspect and smears them as being 'Islamists'." Robert Lambert, who co-founded and led Scotland Yard's Muslim Contact Unit, said: "The list demonises a whole range of groups that in my experience have made valuable contributions to counter-terrorism." He said he had never seen such a list before, warned that it could damage Muslim confidence in the government, and said the meaning of the list was clear: "They are arguing these are either witting or unwitting fellow travellers, providing the mood music for the terrorists.""
