Note that FOX blowhard O’Reilly Â is mostly concerned with what the tabloids say, and whether Tommy or the EDL are some kind of ‘anti-Muslim bigots’ etc. Â He introduces Tommy as one who “heads the militant English Defence League”. Its not that he would ask Anjem Chaudrey whether he is concerned about being called an ‘anti-Christian’ or anti-Jewish bigot, no: if you resist the Islamisation of your country there’s gotta be something wrong with you:
Here’s the whole thing from GWP:
English Defense LeagueÂ leaderÂ Tommy RobinsonÂ made his American dÃ©but onÂ The O’Reilly FactorÂ – America’s most-watched cable news program. Robinson talked about the growing Islamic threat in Great Britain and the cowardly political reaction to this menace. Robinson also plugged his diverse group.
“We’re described as far right. We have a Sikh division, a Hindu division, a Jewish division. We even have a lesbian and gay division. That weak argument by calling us hooligans or racists or fascists is just the easiest way to stifle the debate. Because then they don’t actually have to address the points we’re bringing up. But what’s happening right now in this country, we’re getting so much support from so many people that they are going to have to address these points.”
Robinson was terrific.
Kudos to Bill O’Reilly for allowing Tommy to tell his side of the story tonight on his program.
Tommy, a true working class hero, stood his ground. He rebuts O’Reilly’s interjections remarkably well. I’m not sure if the far more polished speaker Paul Weston would have done better.
