We will start with Mark Steyn with his title taken from Kipling: “Tommy this, an’ Tommy that …an’ Tommy go away”. He has actually gone away, into the first British gulag, imprisoned for his political opinions, and placed in an environment where death is a genuine possibility. This is the backstory, in case you still don’t know:
On Friday, Robinson was livestreaming (from his telephone) outside Leeds Crown Court where last week’s Grooming Gang of the Week were on trial for “grooming” – the useless euphemism for industrial-scale child gang rape and sex slavery by large numbers of … men with the active connivance (as I pointed out to the Sky guys) of every organ of the state: social workers, police, politicians. Oh, and also the media.
Surely not, you say. This is how things work in a totalitarians state. And quite so, that is exactly how things work in a totalitarian state.
And this: UK in shock as judge covers up Soviet-style disappearance of journalist. From which:
According to Fox News:
Sources with knowledge of Robinson’s case spoke on condition of anonymity in part because of fear they would be arrested for contempt. One told Fox that Robinson’s lawyer warned that, considering the presence of … gang members in prison, a 13-month sentence was tantamount to a death sentence.
“Tommy’s lawyer said he will likely die in jail given his profile and previous credible threats, and the judge basically said he doesn’t care,” the source said. “He sentenced him to 13 months in prison.”
This is our world. It’s like suddenly finding oneself somewhere in Germany on the morning of the 31st of January 1933.
