Many of you will be aware that last week, Britain First leaders Paul Golding and Jayda Fransen were jailed for 18 and 36 weeks respectively for the crime of ‘religiously aggravated harassment’.
They were accused of an “Islamophobic” abuse campaign spanning a number of months, in which they drew attention to and attempted to confront a group of men who they labelled as Muslim rapists.
The mainstream media has, of course, claimed they targeted ‘innocent, law-abiding Muslims’ for no good reason. A clear example of far-right racism, they said. The “innocent, law-abiding” Muslims in question are now serving a combined 49 years in prison after being convicted of gang-raping a drunk 16-year-old English girl in a “grubby room” above their kebab shop. Similarly, in a development that reached us over the weekend, Generation Identity leader Martin Sellner and his partner Brittany Pettibone were detained upon arrival in the United Kingdom. Their crime? Planning to meet Tommy Robinson and speak at the infamous Speaker’s Corner on Sunday – a platform utilised by Karl Marx once upon a time, but now the preserve of 200 or so Islamic preachers on a weekly basis.
The planned speech was, ironically, on the topic of Free Speech. However, not only have their rights to freedom of speech been infringed, their rights to freedom of movement – as stipulated under EU law – and freedom of association have also been trampled. The reason given by the British government for this outburst of totalitarianism is that they might say something which ‘created tension between communities’.
