EDL to screen anti-Islam film in East London

EDL to screen anti-Islam film in East London

by Sunny Hundal

The English Defence League are planning to screen the ‘Innocence of Muslims’ film trailer in East London next month.

EDL head Tommy Robinson said on Twitter today that it would be screened on October 27th, in Walthamstow.

Given how awful the film is, it is more likely to bore the hell out of its audience than anything else.

Anti-racist group Hope Not Hate’s Nick Lowles says that if the screening goes ahead then “he should immediately be prosecuted for incitement”.

The Labour MP for Walthamstow Stella Creasy tweeted in response:

antics of EDL designed to cause distress -urge all to remain calm whilst investigate & not let them slur Walthamstow as place of tension.

I don’t agree that screening the film should be cause for prosecution in itself. Under that logic, Liberal Conspiracy would also be liable as we also published the trailer.

However, the screening does give an enterprising group of British Muslims an opportunity for a good stunt to show their contempt for the EDL, without falling for his attempt at trolling.

    YA ALLAH SHOW THEM RIGHT PATH THEY DON’T KNOW WHAT THEY DOING YA ALLAH WE CANNOT SEE THE INSULT OF OUR PROPHET PBUH PLEASE HELP US TO STAY CALM I LEAVE IT ON YOU YA ALLAH YA ALLAH HELP MUSLIMS AROUND THE WORLD AMEEN.

    I doubt any cinemas in East London will screen the film when the trailer and full length film already exists on YouTube and due to the potential of violence and breaking existing British laws. It will be bad for any business.

    The EDL want and need Muslim violence. You should have seen their FB groups in the lead up to the Olympics fantasising about how the country would react when Muslims blew the stadium up.

    English laws regarding “Free Speech” are slightly different to its North American cousins, & even further away from the Continental Europeans.

    I would endorse the view from the depth of British historical experience (thanks to ruling the Empire), that its laws are the least naive, absolutist (Fundamentalist) & most pragmatic for day to day “getting along” of diverse groups.

    There is no such thing as ABSOLUTE Freedom of Speech, anywhere in the world.

    Do the numpties think loonwatch stupid enough to help them spread hate ?
    Its a very odd attitude , yet again and again they try. Do loonwatchers ever ask Pam Geller to link to Loonwatch ?
    OK she is bonkers and might let in such links but as Marx once said ‘I would not belong to any club that would have me as a member’

    Could be interesting as I suspect the full length movie does not exist as it was never made.
    The money paid for the movie that existed ,once , but now is far, far away .

    Maybe lock them in the theater and not let them out until they’ve not only watched the trailer, but the entire movie. I would say it can only make them dumber, but that would be taqiya. And throw Anjem Chowderhead and his merry band in with them.

  • mjasghar

    Choudhry was born here so how can you deport him? Unless you mean an edl style ethnic cleansing

  • Abbey

    The EDL will enjoy watching it considering their intelligence. They’ll enjoy anything that would cause Muslims distress.

  • Reynardine

    I’m surprised there *is* a movie. I thought it was just an excuse for the inflammatory trailers. In any case, the damn thing was really made about “Mr. George”.

  • Sarah Brown

    @Mindy. Yup.

  • AbeMan

    I say let them, I look forward to seeing their faces red with embarrassment at how terrible of a film they watched, well, at least the ones with enough brain cells to see it for the laughable piece of trash it is.

  • JD

    We all know how this how this is going to work…

    Media whore agent provocateur Anjem Choudary ^^who should been deported years ago but guess goverment needs him to justify there huge terrorism budget^^^ is going to show up with his 5 member gang the media Daily Mail will go ape and use what he says to paint all muslims like him . Islampobes will pick up the story and post it on there site and blah blah blah .

    Really getting predictable and old now

    The general view is that Lennon was just bullshitting. His Twitter announcement of the film showing was also posted yesterday on the EDL’s Facebook page but has since been removed.

  • mindy1

    WTF-are they TRYING to make things worse? :shock:

  • Geoff Cavendish

    I hope they do show it so that British Muslims can show that they are better than the EDL.
