The Lion Awakens

We touched yesterday on the whole Tommy Robinson thing, and there is more to say, best said from America, although many of my British readers will, I think, quietly agree.

You may have heard, and I referred to, the demonstrations Whitehall, just outside the fenced off Downing Street, itself a reminder of the problems that Muslim immigration has brought. The British are possibly the most polite amongst us (except of course at football matches) 🙂 But they have their limits.

Joshuapundit writing on Watcher of Weasels has more and some videos.

Tens of thousands of Brits attended a demonstration in London to free Tommy Robinson yesterday and it was not your typical demonstration. These people were energized and angry. Here’s is Dutch politician Geert Wilders, who addressed the crowd:

Here’s what the crowd looked like outside Number 10 Downing Street, the Prime Minister’s residence. The ‘Tommy Tommy’ chant will be familiar to those familiar with Brit football chants:

When the London Police tried to suppress things, the crowd actually attacked them and a number of the police simply ran from the crowd.

Now, we’ve seen the British police run from Muslim mobs before. But this is the first time they’ve ever had to run from the British people. And high time too. They’re going to have to decide whose side they’re on.

The cops finally regrouped to block the demonstrators as they approached Buckingham Palace while the royal family was present inside.

British media is covering this as ‘a small demonstration of far right groups’ if they’re covering it at all. You take a look at these videos and tell me this was a small demonstration!

Emphasis mine.

Which is, of course, Fake News, the BBC, in particular, is every bit as adept at it as their buddies at CNN. But the truth stands on its own. Here are the videos:

 

And

 

Joshuapundit makes another point as well.

This whole scenario was so obviously reminiscent of the way Stalin used to handle this sort of thing that even a number of people on the Left who are not Tommy Robinson fans in the least are upset by it.

My original thought was that Robinson’s fate was a warning to others that you too can disappear and the papers won’t even write about it. They wanted to make an example out of him. They were probably going to wait a few months for the furor to die down and then have Tommy Robinson conveniently murdered in prison.

That plan seems to have failed miserably. Instead, they have made Tommy Robinson far more popular and a symbol of how the UK  is no longer a free country. If they keep him locked up or if they free him, he will remain a popular hero. And I don’t doubt they realize that murdering him in prison would make him a martyr as well.

Much as I hate to say it, I agree with him. This was an attempt to ‘disappear Tommy Robinson’. But thanks to the internet and some intrepid Britons not only are demonstrations happening in Whitehall but in San Francisco, in Sydney, in fact, wherever free men gather.

I think the elite in Britain have gotten so far from their roots, that they have forgotten the ancient wisdom of the people, who led us all to freedom. Rudyard Kipling put it best.

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

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

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

It was not preached to the crowd.
It was not taught by the state.
No man spoke it aloud
When the Saxon began to hate.

It was not suddently bred.
It will not swiftly abate.
Through the chilled years ahead,
When Time shall count from the date
That the Saxon began to hate.

#Free Tommy

ps: Yes, the summit. I haven’t enough information yet to have a valid opinion, maybe tomorrow.

    Usually not so hard to make just one individual disappear. Or a few. I remember about 10 years ago a Central American country “disappeared” a few or a bunch by dropping them out of helicopters into the Pacific.
    But what could be next for “tens of thousands” in Britain? Not enough helicopters. Machine guns? Just kidding, of course, but no smiley face added here.

      Too big a target, and much too well known, not to mention livecasting at the time. For tens of thousands, most likely intimidation. I knew you were kidding but I didn’t smile either. It hurts too much.

        Ah yes, you know so much more about your roots than me. According to Fr. Robert mine English, from the names. Cooper, Varnell, Jeter, Ramsey. All my mom and dad’s research washed away in Katrina. Even then from what I’d read over, it didn’t go back to the British Isles, just those who migrated west from the east coast when they got to America. And as I got the picture, it was from N.C. not N.Y.
        We, of mine, all y’alls down ‘ere related to me, just southern rednecks!
        Those kin who don’t like it, free to speak up, then shut the *%$# up! 🙂

          Yep, all good English, and I suspect Anglo-Saxon names, in any case, they don’t look Scandinavian (Viking) or Welsh to me. Except for Jeter, which is French, I thought perhaps Norman, but maybe not. Huguenot maybe. https://www.andalusiastarnews.com/2011/12/17/jeter-ancestors-were-of-french-hugenot-descent-later-virginia/

          Wow, thanks. Copying and adding in with life’s story written my my grandmom, who was Varnell and married Jeter, my mother’s maiden name.
          Dang, that John Jeter, 22 children! Must’ve been a Yugeuenot! 🙂

          No guarantee that there’s a connection, but it’s a lead and fits. I was looking for the etymology of the word, funny how that happens. 🙂

          Yeah, liked that cheap labor, didn’t he! Wore one woman out and had to find another. Not a bad plan that, Stan! 🙂

          So Trump wants to send several million Mexicans to Japan?
          Uh, been looking around a bit about Jeters.
          “They were on the last of four ships from England paid for by King William to transport Huguenots to America.”
          Glad you looked up the etymology of Jeter and not the etiology (medical). 🙂

          I just assumed that Jeter story was in some French Canadian newspaper. But noticed it’s just up the road in Andalusia, AL! My, my.
          Grandmom was by maiden name a Varnell, married a Jeter, which then my mom later became a Jeter when born, before she married a Cooper, which ended up with me.

          Yep, it’s surely that! 🙂 Did you happen to know that John Wayne and Winston Churchill were 5th cousins twice removed? Through Jennie Jerome, WSC’s American mother. 🙂

          Think I’d read of that connection before. All that numbered cousin to the infinite removal is too confusing for me. Kinda like trying to figure just where studs behind tile are when you got to figure in 2×6 plumbing space between baths and 2×6 not being really 2×6. 🙂

    Probably June 11th, the day John Wayne died. ‘This Day In History’ featured it, the day not about the cousin relationship.
