Leftist icons of political courage point to previous generations. This Conservative activist was arrested in his home this week.
Apparently, reporting on the Muslim Rape gangs in the UK are rattling some cages. Enough for him to be dragged from his home at four in the morning.
First, we give you two quick videos giving some background. Following that, the block quoted text of the email blast that was sent out to alert the public.
About his arrest:
Update. He’s been released on bail with a court date:
This morning in the United Kingdom, just after 4 a.m., the Bedfordshire Police went to our reporter Tommy Robinson’s house, banged on his door, woke up his entire family, arrested Tommy, and took him to jail.
What did he do to deserve such a shocking visit? Why did the police have to come to his home in the dead of night — upsetting his wife and scaring his children?
I’ll tell you what he did, because he was there on Rebel business. Two days ago, Tommy Robinson and two other UK Rebel reporters went to the Canterbury Crown Court, to report on the trial of an alleged Muslim rape gang.
That’s it. That’s all they did. That’s why Tommy was arrested.
See, unlike the mainstream media that prefers to cover up horrific crimes like that, we report them. These four Muslim men are on trial for allegedly gang-raping a 16-year-old girl who wandered into their kebab shop asking for directions.
Tommy and our team went to court to cover the story — and to ask the accused men some questions. That’s what real journalists are supposed to do.
Incredibly, when court officers saw Tommy, they actively worked with the accused men to sneak them out of the court through another door, so we couldn’t film them!
[This is actually happening in a WESTERN nation!]
Just whose side are the police on?
Well, we found out at 4 a.m. this morning, didn’t we?
The police claim that Tommy was in “contempt of court” for filming his report outside the courthouse — for “live streaming” some quick comments from his cell phone while standing on the court house steps. But that’s where journalists report on court cases all the time. Tommy didn’t do anything unusual. He didn’t film anyone other than himself. And when a court official asked him to move, he did.
We did our work, and then we left. If Tommy had done anything wrong, why didn’t the police say something, right then and there?
Why would Bedfordshire police, nearly two hours’ drive away from Canterbury, be involved at all?
Why did they raid his home at 4 a.m.?
And why did they only arrest Tommy — and not our cameraman and producer, who were there with him?
Rather than just complaining about it, there is a specific call to action, for those who want to get in on it.
Is it because Jon Boutcher, Bedfordshire’s Chief Constable, sees Tommy’s journalism as a threat, and wants to intimidate him? This has happened to Tommy before — time and time again.
But this time, it’s different. Because this time, Tommy’s got friends. Tommy’s got you.
And here’s what I think we need to do together:
1. Sign our petition to Chief Boutcher: “We demand that the Bedfordshire Police stop harassing Tommy Robinson, the UK’s leading independent journalist, and his family.”
Please click here to sign the petition.
2. Help us fight back in the court of law. We’ve hired a leading law firm to go to bat for Tommy. Even before sunrise, they were working to get Tommy back home to his family. They’re still at it right now. But lawyers cost money. Will you please help us chip in, to save Tommy?

We’re doing important journalism that’s in the public interest. That includes telling the truth about the wave of Muslim rape gangs that have exploited thousands of British girls. The British people need to know. And Canadians and Americans need a warning of what’s to come.
We’re going to keep doing our journalism — even if politically correct police chiefs don’t like it.
But for now, we have to save Tommy. He has been there for us — now let’s be there for him.
P.S. As I write this, Tommy is still in jail. All for a brief video commentary on his cell phone, on the steps of the court house. Let’s get him home to his family. Please click here to help.
P.P.S. Please forward this e-mail to your friends, or tell them to visit www.SaveTommy.com — and post that as their Facebook status.
There was a time when THIS is what EXACTLY what investigative journalism looked like. Throwing a light on social ills, and demanding change.
Now all the alphabet networks have been reduced to grasping at the same straws trying to beat down their political rivals.
Remember when the left actually CARED about women at risk? And rape culture?
Next time you see one at a P—y march, maybe you could ask them when that changed.
