Britain Has Fallen: Journalist Jailed for Covering Child Sex Trafficking Trial

Via The Daily Bell

It is a crime to report on certain events in Great Britain. But one defiant journalist ignored the court imposed gag orders and reported anyway on three connected sex abuse trials involving dozens of defendants.

Police arrested Tommy Robinson outside the courthouse while he filmed using Facebook live. The courts had already delivered a suspended sentence to him for covering the second trial. Now they say he has breached the conditions of that suspended sentence and will be spending 13 months in prison.

In the space of the next few hours, a judge tried, convicted, and sentenced him to 13 months in jail — and also issued a gag order, demanding a total news blackout on the case in the British news media. Robinson, whose real name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, was immediately taken to Hull Prison.

What This is NOT About

Robinson is known for starting the English Defense League. The idea is to protect Great Britain from Muslim extremists.

But this is not about Robinson’s politics. You don’t have to support his message in order to be horrified that a man is being silenced by the British justice system.

It is extremely important to protect “offensive speech” because the term is entirely subjective. Remember it wasn’t so long ago that people found it offensive that black and white people should be able to attend the same schools. When governments have the power to define crimes subjectively, they can punish anyone they want.

In the first case, Robinson–whose real name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon–was held in contempt of court with a suspended three-month sentence for filming on the court premises. The judge admitted that whether one is allowed to film certain court procedures comes down to where a comma is placed in the law.

The judge broadly interpreted the law to ban recording of anything court related. He told Robinson to refrain from recording or his sentence would be imposed and increased.

But another interesting thing about the first court procedure is that the judge took issue with the title placed under the video that Robinson took. It said, “Tommy Robinson in Canterbury exposing
Muslim child rapists, Police help them escape.”

If you read the list of the defendants in the child human trafficking case, you will find that all 29 have names typically associated with Muslims and people from predominantly Muslim areas of the middle east. The judge helped to shield the defendants from being recorded by Robinson by allowing them to be escorted out of court by police via an alternative route.

What it is Really About

The judge claimed:

This contempt hearing is not about free speech. This is not about the freedom of the press. This is not about legitimate journalism; this is not about political correctness; this is not about whether one political viewpoint is right or another. It is about justice, and it is about ensuring that a trial can be carried out justly and fairly. It is about ensuring that a jury are not in any way inhibited from carryin out their important function. It is about being innocent until proven guilty. It is not about people prejudging a situation and going round to that court and publishing material, whether in print or online, referring to defendants as “Muslim paedophile rapists”. A legitimate journalist would not be able to do that and under the strict liability rule there would be no defence to publication in those terms. It is pejorative language which prejudges the case, and it is language and reporting – if reporting indeed is what it is – that could have had the effect of substantially derailing the trial.

So the judge brings up a good point that the defendants are considered innocent until proven guilty. But how often are those arrested given such VIP treatment? Mugshots and reports typically come out the next day. Somehow, un-prejudiced juries are found.

It certainly seems like Robinson was sensationalizing the story. He can be criticized for that. Perhaps he is an untrustworthy news source or a poor journalist. But that is not for the judge to decide. The judge handed down a ruling which defined what he believes is real journalism versus fake news.

He also appears to issue an order in the same document that prohibits any media outlets from reporting on each case until after it concludes.

Grooming Gangs

In February the Independent ran an article explaining the case after 17 men and one woman was convicted of grooming, drugging, and raping young women. The trial reported by the Independent, and the trials covered by Robinson, stem from the same “grooming gang” which allegedly victimized 700 girls near Newcastle.

Before 2014, police were responding to incidents on an ad hoc basis, with efforts by authorities trying to persuade victims to keep away from the abusers and change their behaviours.

The review found the approach led to “consideration of deterrent punishments of victims for being drunk and disorderly or for making false allegations when accounts were changed”.

“This sent an unhelpful message to perpetrators – they were unlikely to be prosecuted or prevented from continuing to abuse – encouraging an arrogant persistence,” it added.

“It also had a significant impact on victims who learnt that nothing would be done against perpetrators.”

A total of 17 men and one woman have been convicted of offences including rape, sexual abuse, supplying drugs and trafficking for sexual exploitation in a series of trials over the Newcastle case.

Of eight victims covered in the trials, six were white and two were of African heritage, while the perpetrators came from a diverse range of backgrounds including Pakistani, Bangladeshi, Indian, Iranian, Iraqi, Kurdish, Turkish, Albanian and Eastern European.

And now…

Fast forward to the events which unfolded this past weekend, and the ban on recording the court proceedings was even more broadly interpreted. Robinson was outside of the court building filming on facebook live.

He was arrested for breach of the peace, and within six hours had a sentence imposed on him to spend over a year in prison. Tommy Robinson is caged for reporting–responsibly or not–on a trial. And it is all without due process–he was convicted if you can call it that, and sentenced at hearings, not trials.

But then the justice system silenced more than just Robinson. After he was arrested, a number of media outlets removed their articles about Robinson’s arrest because of the Judge’s gag order. The excuse was the same one used to silence reporting on the case Robinson was covering: to prevent prejudice, as in, to make sure the jury pool is not tainted with misinformation about the cast. But seeing as Robinson has already been carted off to prison, this doesn’t make any sense.

A message on Google stated that some search results about the incident may have been removed because of European data protection laws.

And this is the state of “justice” in the United Kindom. A judge can eradicate the media’s right to report on the news. A judge can jail a man for free speech, and journalism.

Let me this be a lesson to America. This is where the regulation of “fake news” and “hate speech” leads. This is what happens when laws are implemented which allow governments to regulate the media, and censor the internet.

And whether or not you agree with what is being said, now is the time to defend the right to say it. Otherwise, when it is your turn to be accused of spreading offensive fake news, there will be no one left to defend you.

You don’t have to play by the rules of the corrupt politicians, manipulative media, and brainwashed peers.

Satanism, true Satanism, is about the unification of the Abrahamic faiths. Christianity however is incompatable with the other two due to their permissive views on pedophilia and usury (which is essentially stealing from the future and exploiting children anyway). 

Jesus' answer? Whip the money changers, and tie millstones around the necks of pedophiles and throw them into the sea. 

Matthew 18:6 John 2:15

Christianity will either be the dominant Abrahamic faith, or it will be eradicated by the other two. 

Please keep this in mind while this trial of English Rothschild Muslim allies continues.

This applies to all matters where the Government wants to bury a matter without critical debate. The Skripal farce is another good example where the media have also been subjected to a gag order, known as a "D-Notice" in the UK. Not that the MSM would publish anything other than the Government's narrative anyway!! In that respect, this is a multi-dimensional problem for the truth and critical thinking.

Actually the judge is right.  Whether they be muzzies or not, they deserve a fair trial before they are lynched for raping kids.  It could all be a lie.  False rape charges happen all the time.  Or perhaps some royal is covering up their own kid buggering.

Tommy violated the court order and deserves the time.  The real culprit here are the globalists allowing in all those muzzies.  No protest about that I see.

So Tommy sitting outside the courthouse streaming the Muzzies families intimidating the victims helps ensure they get a fair trial? Previously they have attempted to bribe Juror's http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-leeds-41945939

Perhaps some judge is covering up his own maleficence, but Tommy should have never gone to a first trial, let alone be arrested again for "breach of the peace".

Before calling Islam "one of the Abrahamic faiths," keep in mind that it's just a spurious cult that was created 600 years later; about the time LOTS of cults were sticking Jesus in their religions. Those other cults dwindled and vanished, due to their lack of raping and slaughter.

So many people talk about religion and throw around biblical or religious quotes. That's cute. But the world/life/our species didn't start with religion. Shit was happening way before religion. Might want to digg deeper into that.

I was just barred from posting on the Disgus platforms, which includes Breitbart and now the newer Bit Chute. So my form of free speech is restricted. But while I was investigating Disgus for the reason for my banning, I found that if you want to use disgus for your web page, for a few dollars more they will allow the shadow banning app for your page so you can curtail what you don't want you viewers to see or read...  So that is the state of the propaganda net these daze..

I was barred on The Hill through Disqus for a week and if it happens again forever for using the word "libtard" to describe a set of idiotic progressives. Who knew "libtard" was so egregious? I didn't beforehand. The bigger question is to these people would be what words are acceptable and what specific words are not. And who made you in charge of what is acceptable and what is not? In my mind free speech is free speech but it certainly isn't in their world. This then becomes a very slippery slope and one that now has imprisoned the likes of Tommy Robinson for exercising his free speech.  Am I next?

I get banned on InfoWars for posting the following:

Political Zionism:

The social movement which creates and sustains the physical nation of Isreal.  The driver for World Government through Isreal in the tradition of the Heretical Frankist Jews. 

This definition is embodied by The Rothschild family.Not all Jews are political Zionists.  Not all political Zionists are Jews.

The political Zionist movement feeds off Jews in the sameway the the Nazi movement feed off the Germans.

Political Zionism is the greatest enemy of the Jews.

 

Remember Five points:

 

1. Isreal will fight to the very last American Soldiers Death.

2. The Zionist screams in Pain as he Stikes you.

3.The Yinon Plan.

4.Operation TALPIOT.

5. Qatari Pipeline Petro Dollar Vs. Russia / China Petro Yaun.

 

One bright aspect is the Anti-Isreal / Jew Zionist movement is gaining steam.  More & more Individuals are speaking openly against Israel’s War Crimes, False Flag involvements, The Yinon Plan along with Pro Zionist immigrantion policy of migrating Muslim’s &  Arabs to the EU & US without fear of retribution.  Pro migration policy which supports territory boarder expansion via the Yinon Plan & ethnic cleansing & migration of Arabs & Muslim’s. 

Not to mention the Billions in US foreign aid, AIPAC, ZioNeoConFascist NGO’s & dual Israeli Citizen’s which hold Political Office in CONgress.  Which must be outlawed.  

 

That said. the Pure Evil Santanic Lucerferian’s are already attempting & countering by passing “Laws” in the US & Zionist Israel persecuting those who speak of their Crimes or are Anti Isreal.  

 

This position has been brought under the spotlight by the news that the municipality of Dickinson, in Texas, demanded that people agree to not boycott Israel as a pre-condition to qualify for relief funds after hurricane Harvey. This is not an independent action taken by Dickinson, however, but merely an initiative to comply with a Texas state law, which came into effect on Sept. 1, and requires companies and individuals taking on state contracts and disposing of public funds to sign an affidavit in which they declare not to participate in boycott campaigns against Israel.

People are generally dumb, that is why political fundraising is so important.  Those funds that are raised are mostly spent on tv advertising.  Now who, of any intelligence, is ever swayed by tv advertising?  Not many intelligent folks are, but most of the country are flat out morons.  Emotions rule, and propaganda is aimed directly at emotional topics.  Take the visceral emotions out of the equation, and we realize that two arms of the same monster has been raping the natural good will of Americans, and turning it into hate against our countrymen.  Now i need another beer.

Getting up to speed and giving the TR story the smell taste with all the goings on lately, trying to form an opinion.

This video is a speech he gave on his history with the police and speaking out against Islam. If not staged from the beginning it would appear to be a legit and damning statement on the police and their useless and underhanded attempts at getting Muslim extremists under control at the cost of everyday Brits.

In Australia we cover up through super injunctions. The court prohibits anyone who has ever known about the book or matter to ever speak a word about it. Even those who make lists of works under injunction cannot include a book under superinjunction in them. The procedure is secret, too. 

Blacklisted: 

Sydney Inc: The Murky World of Michael McGurk ... ISBN-13, 9780522857818 ... by investigative reporters Kate McClymont and Vanda Carson ...

I could be jailed for this.

Some slightly more informed comment here - https://www.readytogo.net/smb/threads/tommy-robinson-arrest.1432444/

The real story is that he was putting some very brave witnesses at risk, despite already having a suspended sentence for having done it before. A suspended sentence is a warning that you will go straight to jail if you repeat the offence. – So not surprisingly he is now residing at her majesties pleasure

These are the folks that will later claim they were "Just following orders"

I was one of the officers involved in his arrest. He was filming defendants, witnesses and jurors on his live feed. There was also a reporting ban on the trial in question so he was held in contempt. Pretty straight forward really. We're expecting protests today at the station for it.

A reporting ban? Why. Answer that question honestly and you will have all the answers you need for revolution.

Already did my time and more, anon coward unlike you who has never worn the uniform or seen a day of service to your country.

And as if I would sacrifice my last few years to return and lead a pack of cowards that would bug out at the first shot fired. You are doomed, as are your big-mouthed anon coward butt-buddies here. You will all go meekly to the abattoir, and like sheep be shorn of anything of value before your miserable, worthless lives are put to an end.

Whining about an over the hill retiree and Marine Veteran that will not return to fight your battles for you, despicable. You deserve everything you get, disgusting, mewling, simpering cunts. I can't wait to see it, cocksucking cowards and traitors to yourselves, your families and America.

This is your reality, your well deserved future.

So what Christians should do, if there are any left with any balls, is show up en-masse and do likewise in the park and "shame" the shit out of the powers that be.  Let them be seen as arresting thousands when they are evidently willing to protect muslim nuts.  The shame factor will be the only way to force them to stop.  And then do it again and again and again.  Everywhere.  All the time.  Peaceably.  If you don't start now to reclaim your heritage or your culture then you have only yourselves to blame for allowing it.
