There will be blood.

I’ve been a blogger for a number of years, and have occasionally been asked why I do it by the few people who know that I do, or can connect me to the Pointman persona I habitually blog under. I always give them the same answer; I want my voice to be heard because so often what I want to say is forbidden in the frighteningly Orwellian dictatorship of the mass media.

An old Baptist hymn called who will sing for me comes to mind. You have to stand up and try to sing your own song, because if you don’t, my experience is nobody else will. Longevity and bloggers rarely go together, because it’s no good doing the ego trip, or ranting and raving at the moon or just blogging over nothing of any consequence. You very soon run out of the passion you never had for it, and therefore splutter to a halt after a few pieces. In essence, it isn’t about running from something, but rather running towards something. There has to be a definite thing you want to achieve that’s a bit more aspirational than just everyday hate or spite or self-love or over some sort of bone you simply just can’t help but keep chewing on.

The other and increasingly unfashionable side of the free expression the internet enables, is that you have to allow differing and sometimes totally opposing viewpoints on stage. I think it was Voltaire or Jean-Jacques Rousseau who said I disagree with every word you’ve said, but I’d defend to the death your right to say them. As ever, there’s always wars about who came up with such a succinct saying, but my money’s on Rousseau on this occasion. If you’ve ever read the social contract, there’s that same economy of expression that’s unique to him.

Increasingly, there is a horrific assault on freedom of thought and expression, around what was thought to be post-enlightenment western civilisation, and contrary to what you might expect, it’s not being led by assorted gangs of street thugs but by what passes as the establishment, also known as the deep state these days. It’s become obvious to any thinking individual that this nominally liberal establishment is totally intolerant of any viewpoint other than their own, and will go to great lengths to suppress it as well.

It’s tempting to say they’re the worst generation of leadership Britain ever had, but they’re simply a symptom of a phenomenon that’s occurred several times before when a bald truth was staring them in the face that they simply couldn’t accept because it ran contrary to all their pet delusions about how the future was going to be, just as long as they could silence any dissenters. The previous and worst example of that cowardly mentality was in the years leading up to the second world war.

It was obvious to anyone with two brain cells to rub together that a clash between the real democracies and fascism was inevitable at some point, but the establishment of the time had fallen in love with the turnaround Hitler had done with Germany, and Mussolini getting the damn trains to run on time again, as if that was some yardstick of political rectitude. The people who saw that war approaching turned to all the deeply unfashionable things that seemed to be the only solitary voices of dissent against the creeping forces of totalitarianism.

For nearly a decade, fascism didn’t have to win any wars of aggression, because it was already winning via a mix of bluff, bullying, appeasement and cowardice on the part of those who should properly have been its opposition. As Peter Clemenza said to a Michael Corleone who’d just got back from serving in the war, Hitler could have been stopped in 1933 with one good hard slap. He wasn’t, and 50+ million people died as a consequence.

The deeply unfashionable opposition joined the Communist party or went to Spain like Orwell to fight against Franco, or they just kept on slugging away as Churchill did. In the ten years leading up to the outbreak of war, the BBC establishment managed to keep him and his unpalatable viewpoints off the air to the tune of one single appearance a year. Despite all the censorship and exclusion of the warning voices, the war did eventually come because it was doomed to happen since as with all fanatics, and the Nazis certainly being no exception, they just didn’t know when to stop. They’d just keep pushing until the inevitable conflict ignited.

We are in a similar situation with the migrant flood and the resultant rise of a militant Islam in Europe, and the establishment’s reaction to it is to simply duck all the confrontational aspects of it that run directly contrary to what are the traditional European values established over the centuries. Muslim rape gangs traffic white girls, but are untouchable for nearly twenty years because while the police, social services and all those organisation charged with a duty to protect children knew all about it, they chose to turn a blind eye rather than run the risk of being accused of being racist.

Chop the sex organs of prepubescent girls? That’s okay. Even though it’s been officially illegal for 30 years, not one prosecution has ever been brought for what’s well known to be common practice. Integrate into the society, and at least making some attempt to merge in? Never happened. What did actually happen was the establishment of fiercely defended no go areas you’d think twice before venturing into if you weren’t Muslim.

The schools within those areas bear little resemblance to any concept of a western school. They’re madrassas in all but name, where there’s only one subject on the curriculum, and that’s the rote learning of the Koran. Boys and girls are strictly segregated, with the latter’s formal education skidding to a screeching halt at eight years old because as everyone knows, under sharia law a woman is only worth half a man, so who gives a damn if they can’t read or write. Is sex with a ten-year old child totally abhorrent? Not if it’s in your cultural tradition, a Finnish judge recently ruled, and the migrant pedophile walked out of court. The list of insanities runs on and on.

All of these vile practices have been happening not in some dark recesses of our society, but out in the public and if you chose to speak out about them, you got labelled as being islamaphobic, which gradually came conflated with being racist, although it was obvious Islam is a religion not a race, but it became the go to slur to be hurled at anyone objecting to this headlong career backwards into the medieval ages.

Back to treating women as little better than breed cows? The feminists rushed to Islam’s defense every time. The casual mass rapes of, and I’m going to use the forbidden words, of white girls? Well, let’s keep that out of the news; they were probably asking for it anyway. Cutting the throat of animals and watching them slowly bleed to death in the street? The animal rights activists rushed to the defense of the practice. Blowing us up in suicide attacks? Time after time, assorted libertarians insisted it wasn’t symptomatic of any deeper malaise. Blow up our children with nailbombs when they’re queuing up to get into some teeny bopper concert in Manchester? Well, these things happen. Running the daily risk of being killed in a terrorist attack? Well, these things are part and parcel of living in a big city announces London’s smug Muslim mayor who’s presided over a rise in the crime and murder rate the like of which the city has never seen before.

All across Europe, these things and other equally objectionable practices have seemingly been embraced and protected by the establishment, but though they don’t want to acknowledge the problem, it’s real, it’s present and it’s slowly growing towards a confrontation. Across Europe, attitudes are hardening and despite the best efforts of the establishment to kid everyone there’s no problem, it just isn’t washing. What used to be the Eastern European states have learnt the lesson from Sweden’s cultural suicide, and have slammed the door to all migrants. When a flash crowd of hundreds of Muslims turn up to pray in your church grounds, it’s a declaration of war.

As a minor part of my blogging activities, I do provide links to the few stories that are available concerning some of the above the law excesses of the laughably named religion of peace. Those stories will never make it into a major MSM publication or onto the BBC prime time news, because they don’t fit in with the establishment narrative, but they are real none the less.

There are a few independent reporters and activists who are on it full-time. Needless to say, they get hell from the establishment for just reporting what’s actually going on. One of the most prominent of these goes by the pseudonym of Tommy Robinson. If you research him in the MSM, you won’t find much good being said of him. He’s had the  usual character assassination hatchet job done on him; racist, islamaphobic, white supremacist, etc etc, but if you can find some unedited footage of him interviewing the victims of sexual violence, he comes across as a decent and caring bloke.

Given the touchy area he both reports on and is also an activist in, you don’t have to be Sherlock Holmes to realise he was always going to be targeted by an establishment who didn’t want the stuff he was reporting on seeing even a dimmer version of the light of day. He’s had a number of brushes with the law for doing what all the political activists, previously know as journalists, should be doing but know it’d be too dangerous – reporting.

He’s been slung into jail once already for doing nothing more than his job. The warden of the prison, a real bitch by all accounts, had him assigned straight to the Muslim wing of the prison on his first day, where he was nearly beaten to death. He survived though minus a lot of teeth. Despite that experience and exercise in near fatal cruelty, he wouldn’t back off when he was eventually released.

He was grabbed by the police last Friday, and in an unprecedented display of judicial thuggery, in one day was arrested, confined and will now serve a 13 month suspended sentence without even being given access to a lawyer to conduct some sort of defense. So vicious has been his treatment, the authorities won’t even tell his wife and family where he’s been held. Just like that, all in one day. There’s not even a pretense at some rule of law.

What was his crime that deserved such swift and decisive justice? Well, he was outside a court and reporting on the trial of a group of Muslim men charged with sex trafficking of minors amongst other equally disgusting things. Since when has reporting on a criminal trial been an arrestable offense? Well, as it turns out, it is if you’re Tommy Robinson and doing nothing more than reporting outside a court.

As if to cover up what is a dark and scabby day for British justice, the judge has issued a gag order to the media over the whole thing, and on the flimsiest of excuses. The reporting of his arrest is being scrubbed from the media. Even amongst thieves there’s rumoured to be some honour, but obviously the same doesn’t apply to journalists, who really should be rallying around a reporter under the establishment cosh rather than rushing to pull already published articles about his kangaroo court victimisation.

If his treatment in prison is as brutal as his last experience inside, it won’t be a prison sentence, it’ll be a death sentence, but as the judge in question reputedly replied when informed of the risk “Well, he should have thought of that, shouldn’t he?“.

    Pointman,

    Two hundred years ago Tommy Robinson would have been “disappeared” by throwing him into the bilges of a convict ship and transporting him to Van Deimens Land, just as the British Establishment always did with their recalcitrant political prisoners. English, Irish, Scottish – no matter, ship them off to the other side of the planet.

    Today the British Government allows the Judiciary to sanction an Execution Warrant against political prisoner Robinson – sentence to be carried out by Muslim prison inmates, at a time and by a method of their choosing.

    Is that arms-length enough for you Theresa May?

    Will that absolve you and your newly appointed Muslim Home Secretary of any responsibility in the police abduction on a public street of a British citizen and freelance journalist, to be arraigned in a pre-booked courtroom before a judge who laughed as he viewed the arrest from a window in the court building.

    The contemptible and utter bastardry of all parties to Robinson’s abduction and incarceration has been condemned around the world … not by similarly motivated Governments … but by the People. Hundreds of thousands of them from every walk of life and in every country with a modicum of respect for the Rule of Law.

    Mrs May, there is another Law of which you should be cognisant – The Law of Unintended Consequences.

    In this pathetically transparent attempt to use police and court officers as your political henchmen to conceal the vile crimes of your immigrant criminal population, you may well have sparked an uprising, the like of which you couldn’t have imagined.

        Hello Mel … I think what will get grandparents around the world out onto the streets are the indelible images we saw when Tommy was abducted … the fear in his eyes and the barely suppressed panic in his voice as he realised the police thugs meant business.

        He could have been our son.

        Just as “Je Suis Charlie” followed the Charlie Hebdo massacre, so too will we see people feeling that Tommy could be their son, their brother, their father.

        British law operates on ‘precedent’ … it can now happen to anybody. And I think that horror is finally dawning on all of us.

        By the way – I refuse to use the word ‘arrest’. An arrest is the legitimate response to a criminal act. This was neither. It smacks more of a GWBush-style “rendition”.

        @Blackswan
        After following a British discussion on the matter (I myself am swedish) it seems like the arrest itself is koscher. “Breach of peace” is a tool often used legitimately by the police to detain someone at brawls in the streets or on the pub. Often it is only temporary until the situation is under control and then they release the person (after he/she has sobered up) and there’s no more to it.
        But the trial and conviction is outrageous. And I do not care whether it is formally right and according to the book, it’s offensive to my sense of rightness and justice nevertheless.

    It is my understanding that he wasn’t reporting on the trial. He was reporting on a sentencing hearing. The trial was OVER, and there was no jury to corrupt. The police were waiting for Tommy. To place a gag order on his arrest was also a crime since the so-called D notice is supposedly only to be used for national security issues. This is a point of change and people are at first bewildered but will get angry. People will be made aware of the state our nation has reached and I fear for the future.

        @ diogenese2 … That’s the problem with Govts and the Judiciary using ‘suppression orders’, D-notices and in-camera hearings on matters that are ‘in the public interest’.

        The suppression of this case was not to protect the identity of the abused victims but to protect the accused, and the police and politicians who allowed paedophile trafficking to continue unabated for decades.

        In the many online accounts of the Robinson case, yours is the only comment I’ve seen that says a jury trial was ongoing and that it wasn’t a sentencing hearing. One other comment elsewhere claimed that Robinson pleaded guilty to contempt charges and sealed his own fate.

        Is that the pea-and-shell game Authorities play in order to sow confusion and damage the credibility of protesters?

      From what I gather, you’re correct, it was a sentence hearing. But, it is the second trial in a set of three. In total it is 29 persons being charged, and they’re getting tried 10 at a time. The first trial was the one where TR got a suspended 3 month sentence, and the third trial will be held in September. So I guess this comes into play, and probably will be used as a justification.
      I am not defending the jailing of TR, I am as outraged as any sensible person over this gross miscarriage of justice, I just want to point out that purely formally it’s not wrong.
      (However I’ve seen some mention that the judge that sentenced TR would be disqualified in this case as it is the same judge that held the case that would be endangered by TR:s reporting and also the same one that ordered his arrest. It has been stated that this is grounds for getting the case appealed and or declared a mistrial.)

    Glad to see your analysis of recent events. I’ve spent the past few days digging thru the interwebs to find any reporting at all, and have been very glad to see how this has resonated across the Anglosphere, along with Germany and Israel.

    Maddeningly enough, while people are (rightfully) outraged at Tommy’s arrest and quick imprisonment, there doesn’t seem to be much anger about the creeping fascism that is overtaking all of our lives — perhaps the water isn’t hot enough yet.

    As someone across the pond in the states, my options are rather few and far between to express my concern: I’ve emailed Donald Trump, the Home Secretary, and PM, and am thinking very hard about calling the British Consulate in Washington, DC (no email address), and possibly emailing the US Dept of State and possibly Trade as well.

    I’m also voting with my wallet by supporting Tommy directly (https://tommyrobinson.online/support/) and indirectly — Rebel.media is challenging the publication ban (https://www.therebel.media/let_us_report_on_tommy_robinson). It feels like so little.

    Bugger it!

    Warning: Rant imminent! Read on at your own risk ….

    As an uncouth colonial Aussie kid, born into the British Empire and who stood proudly at school assemblies reciting the Oath of Allegiance … “I honour my God, I serve my Queen, I salute the flag!” … and now a member of the Commonwealth of Nations, with Queen Elizabeth II remaining as our Head of State … I have something to say.

    British courts and the supposedly independent Judiciary operate under the authority of … the Crown. Legislators are known as ‘Minister of the Crown’; there are Crown Attorneys and Crown Prosecutors. Convicted criminals are incarcerated in Her Majesty’s prisons.

    In criminal proceedings, the state is the prosecuting party and is usually designated on the title or name of a case as “R v” (R for Regina) or “the Crown vs” Smith, Jones or, as in this case, Robinson (aka Yaxley-Lennon).

    The entire British Establishment operates with the authority of “The Royal Prerogative” … Wiki tells me this; The royal prerogative is a body of customary authority, privilege, and immunity, recognised in the United Kingdom as the sole prerogative of the Sovereign and the source of many of the executive powers of the British government.

    WTF does that mean?

    Can British subjects be persecuted, prosecuted and incarcerated in the Queen’s name and she has no authority to say anything about it?

    “Oh, but the Royal Family are good for tourism don’tcha know!”

    So that’s her legacy in the annals of British history is it?

    An image to grace cheap crockery and tea towels, and other tatty ’Made in China’ souvenirs. Hosting garden parties and wedding receptions, gracing her ‘subjects’ and tourists with a wave from a passing limousine.

    If the “Crown” is symbolic of all things British, and the various arms of government operate in her name and under her sole authority – how can she remain mute as her sovereign nation is destroyed by 5th column Marxist/Leninist infiltrators?

    Nothing to say Ma’am?

    Oh well, make yourself useful and get back to your bread and circuses. That will keep the huddled masses quiet … for a while.

    There is a difference between the UK and the US when it comes to the declared independence of the press and free speech. The US codified its rules in its constitution and made them absolute – i.e. above any law that congress could pass.

    But that does not seem to matter. What happened to Tommy is happening here as well. And the callous disregard for “non-PC” citizens is barbarism not seen since the tyranny of the middle ages. But it is happening. While I have taken to study Trump and what makes him tick, I have not been so lucky to understand the suicidal rush of Western leaders to embrace their annihilation. It is not even as obtuse as Hitler and his “Last land grab” with Chamberlain. At least there you could fool yourself into thinking that he was a reasonable man (his atrocities had not been made public yet).

    But with Muslims? There is no hiding it. They do not even attempt to try to appear civilized. They have their charter of atrocities – sometimes called the Koran – and they follow it! They TOLD us up front what they were going to do. Yet the toadies of Soros (I know he is not the supreme leader, but he is the face of the ruling cabal leading the western leaders into their glue factory with the chant of “4 legs good, 2 legs better”) are simply blinded by some ethereal goal that is tied to a one world order. And like the exploding heads in Kingsman, they figure they will be the chosen ones that will be exempt from the blood shed.

    @Blackswan,
    Thanks for several great comments. My heart sinks.

    The judicial killing of three sick children made me wonder what had become of my countrymen……how could this happen in the UK? When I lived in England dogs were treated with more respect.

    As a child I used to wander around Hyde Park with my parents where people on soap boxes spoke about the wonders that would follow if we replaced our ancient system of government with Marxism. The police looked on smiling, confident that our system rooted in “Free Speech” was strong enough to survive any challenge.

    As Pointman says our current “Leaders” are weak and they put us in danger just as their predecessors did in the 1930s. Back then real leaders like Winston Churchill were side lined.

    This problem is not restricted to the UK. Please read “The Strange Death of Europe” by Douglas Murray.

    Here in the USA we lucked out. Donald Trump is a leader like Winston Churchill. If he serves eight years as president I believe he will transform the country by cleansing our corrupt institutions and returning control to “We the People” so that the USA can remain a beacon of hope for all the world.

    Yet we are in peril because salvation based on one man is fragile……what if the Pharisees destroy him? If Trump is assassinated or hounded out of office all future presidents will be puppets of the “Donor Class”, just as all the presidents since Ronald Reagan were.

    Maybe the best hope for mankind is that leaders like Trump will emerge in Italy, in the UK, in the Czech Republic and in many other countries.

    The Beginnings

    It was not part of their blood,
    It came to them very late
    With long arrears to make good,
    When the English began to hate.

    They were not easily moved,
    They were icy-willing to wait
    Till every count should be proved,
    Ere the English began to hate.

    Their voices were even and low,
    Their eyes were level and straight.
    There was neither sign nor show,
    When the English began to hate.

    It was not preached to the crowd,
    It was not taught by the State.
    No man spoke it aloud,
    When the English began to hate.

    It was not suddenly bred,
    It will not swiftly abate,
    Through the chill years ahead,
    When Time shall count from the date
    That the English began to hate.

    Below are two quotes, one from Voltaire and the other from Harry Truman that sum up the way I think about the atrocious treatment of Tommy Robinson, and the repercussions thereof.

    “It is dangerous to be right in matters on which the established authorities are wrong.”

    “Once a government is committed to the principle of silencing the voice of opposition, it has only one way to go, and that is down the path of increasingly repressive measures, until it becomes a source of terror to all its citizens and creates a country where everyone lives in fear.”

    I think they’ve made a grave mistake in this instance, and they’ve gone too far.

      Perhaps there’s a reason “the authorities have either ignored it or turned a blind eye” when it comes to the trafficking of vulnerable children in the UK (and elsewhere) – though it’s become an issue many suspect but ‘dare not speak its name’.

      That is, that the decades-long Muslim child rape gangs have been the protected pipeline for supplying paedophile politicians, judges, Lords of the Realm, police chiefs and show-biz celebrities with under-age vulnerable children; children who’ve already been ‘broken-in, who won’t tell anybody (even if there was someone who’d listen), and if they do squeal too loudly can be easily (and permanently) silenced by the criminal thugs who own the trade.

      Do we really think that the gross and odious Cyril Smith cruised rundown neighbourhoods scouting for likely victims? Would Jimmy Savile, beloved of the Royals and the BBC, have done likewise? Or any of the other depraved ‘elite’ who don’t go looking for their prey … it’s brought to them by criminals who know what they’re doing … and how to keep it under wraps.

      The Cyril Smith revelations showed us that Child Protective Services officers were also in the ‘trade’. Unbelievable? Think about it. Overworked and underpaid civil servants immersed in the world of drug addled, abusive parents for whom spawning unwanted children has become a ‘cottage industry’ that attracts taxpayer Benefits and housing. The said ‘officers’ have mortgages, debts and families of their own to support. If a crooked toff wants to amuse himself with one of these misbegotten kids … So what? Who cares?

      For a fat envelope of tax-free cash now and then, why not?

      For decades our hedonistic society has been circling the drain, caught in a vortex of moral decay – Tommy Robinson found the courage and conviction to put the plug in the tub and put a stop to it.

      We get to choose. Either be inspired by him to voice our own outrage, or shut up and be complicit … silenced by our own cowardice.

I wrote about it in comments on one of the UK national online papers and was deleted, though not before it was obvious some people had read it and approved of what I wrote. I used no swear words, no I or M words and was not abusive in any way. My present anger was particularly sparked by the news that he had been moved to a max-security prison which is nearly three quarters filled with a certain category of religious thugs who would be out to get him.
    What has happened to my native country?
