Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer Raise Funds for EDL Leader’s Legal Defence

Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer are raising money for head EDL boss Stephen Yaxley-Lennon (aka Tommy Robinson) who was arrested for using a false passport to enter the USA and attend Geller’s anti-Muslim rally on 9/11.

Geller and Spencer are both raising funds for Yaxley-Lennon, and involvement in the conspiracy to illegally bring Yaxley-Lennon over may includeNew York State Senator David Storbin. (h/t: Jai)

Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer Raise Funds for EDL Leader’s Legal Defence

(Barth’s Notes)

Pamela Geller writes about the plight of English Defence League leader Stephen Yaxley-Lennon (aka “Tommy Robinson”), who was recently arrested:

Many of you have responded to my article “Darkness Descending in England” by asking how to help. Legal funds are badly needed. Tommy’s situation in prison is terrible, and they urgently need to raise funds to pay lawyers to address this situation and provide him with the best possible legal defense.

Donations to Tommy’s legal fund can be made online via the EDL website here. Please, do it. SION as well as AFDI are contributing, in addition to all of the other work we are doing, This is a priority. Robinson and Kevin Carroll are part of our international team, members of SION’s President’s council, key players in the worldwide struggle for freedom.

Demand equal treatment for Tommy Robinson rather than sharia inspired victimisation!

Robert Spencer, as ever, is providing the chorus, with a piece entitled “Urgent: Help defend Tommy Robinson from a monstrously unjust leviathan state apparatus”.

Carroll and Robinson attended an anti-Islam conference organised by Geller in New York on 11 September; Carroll memorably waved around British tabloid newspapers bearing headlines about Christianity in the UK. Robinson’s presence was curious; as the anti-EDL site EDL News noted:

…in September 2010, Robinson travelled over to the United States to attend a 9/11 event with other far right extremists. Upon arrival he was detained at John F Kenedy airport for several hours, refused entry and was then deported. No doubt due to his links with the far right and his lenghty criminal record, which has increased significantly since then with a spell on remand in the UK, a conviction for assault and three days inside a Swiss prison for a rooftop protest that went wrong.

One explanation is someone in high places has pulled strings for Robinson to enter the country. Robinson claimed on Twitter last night that he was sat next to New York State Senator David Storobin.

Now, however, it has been reported that

He tried to use a passport in the name of “Andrew McMaster” to enter the United States on September 10 this year, Southwark Crown Court heard.

Of course, at this moment in time the claim is just an allegation, and we should not infer guilt ahead of legal action. However, it is difficult to see in the arrest evidence of “sharia inspired victimisation”. It has also been noted that Robinson sent a Tweet to Geller on 10 Oct, asking for her phone number and adding ”Think there will be some activity this week about my trip to the usa”.

Robinson has also mentioned another allegation:

Arrested on suspicion of assault on Sayful Islam yest in B.Park? U can’t make this up. He still not been arrested for assaulting me on tv?

I blogged on Islam’s assault on Robinson (a slap through a car window) here. It should be remembered that Robinson is reluctant to involve the police in such matters.

A second element in the story is the arrest of 53 EDL members on a motorway soon afterwards; according to the BBC:

The men were heading to a location in east London, but police have not revealed where they were due to gather.

All 53 were arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to cause public nuisance, the Metropolitan Police said.

Geller wrote:

The arrest of over 53 people in the United Kingdom is the beginning of the end for once-great Britain. The leaders of the English Defence League (EDL), Tommy Robinson and Kevin Carroll, were among those arrested, as well as Paul Weston of the British Freedom Party (BF).

…According to Carroll, Robinson was incarcerated for leaving the United Kingdom and entering the United States fraudulently for our September 11, 2012 Stop Islamization of Nations free speech conference in New York City.

…This is a defining moment in British history, as significant as any major turning point. It is in many respects like the Night of the Long Knives, which marked the point of no return from Nazism for Germany.

Geller’s historical parallel means that she’s comparing the EDL to the Brownshirts, although presumably this is unintentional. Carroll was arrested separately, while Weston was later arrested for breach of the peace while “demanding” information about Robinson at Wormwood Scrubs prison in west London. This turned out to be the wrong location; Robinson was in fact at Wandsworth.

Up until the middle of last year, Geller and Spencer were wary of association with EDL; the alliance was finally cemented in June. Having invested so heavily in the organisation, they have no other option than to continue aggressively to assert a narrative of political persecution; but one wonders if privately they have reservations. The video below, uploaded by “MrlaughingattheEDL” and expanded upon by EDL News, suggests there is good reason for them to be cautious.

    ‘Every one who opposes Islam is called a fascist’

    No, it’s just those like Spencer, Geller, the EDL and affiliates who are intolerant and hate-filled against people of a particular other faith.

    Time for a reminder about Robert Spencer’s real agenda, actions and affiliations: http://www.loonwatch.com/2012/10/sioasionafdi-jihadwatchs-robert-spencer-exposed-the-facts/

    Also time for a reminder about EDL co-founder Kevin Carroll’s real attitudes towards non-Christians, since Pamela Geller’s latest article endorses him as a member of “SION’s President’s Council” and she is continuing to defend him: http://www.loonwatch.com/2012/10/jewish-pamela-gellers-christian-edl-ally-rants-about-non-christians-being-pagans/

    So, to summarise:

    1. Pamela Geller’s closest American ally has repeatedly made false statements about Islam & Muslims, and is on record as publicly stating that his actions are heavily motivated by his unilateral agenda for the dominance of the Catholic Church.

    2. Pamela Geller’s closest British allies are on record as:

    —- a) repeatedly promoting material involving virulently anti-Semitic, Hitler-supporting neo-Nazi websites and organisations, in one instance live on the BBC in front of millions of British viewers,

    —- b) behind Geller’s back, ranting about non-Christians being “pagans”,

    —- c) explicitly promoting a Christian supremacist agenda, including political policies that are extremely discriminatory against Jews, Jewish religious observances and synagogues,

    —- and d) repeatedly stating that their agenda is also racially-motivated.

    3. All of the individuals described above are now formally allied to European neo-Nazis and have even begun organising joint public demonstrations with them.

    Draw your own conclusions about Pamela Geller, considering her continuing actions. Geller has either been tricked by her closest American & British allies, or she is completely lacking in self-respect, or her self-proclaimed “Jewish” identity is fake.

    Emperor,

    You quoted, and then wrote:

    I think her comparison is not of the EDL to the brownshirts, but the British leadership and the brownshirts. I think her intention was to insinuate that Britain has chosen Nazism over freedom and there is no turning back after this action.

    Hyperbolic? Yes. Insipid? Yes. Geller? Quintessentially.

    “Every one who opposes Islam is called a fascist: Brilliant, this can only come from a ‘religion’ that brings you the atrocities through the sword of Jihad.”

    Engages in what appears to be extra legal activities of ‘properly bringing the Truth™ to the people that the corrupt politicians don’t want you to hear’? Check.

    Uses not only violent language, but even occasionally engages in acts of brutish behavior to further their agenda? Check.

    Charismatic, or at least well-organized, leaders who spin a narrative of ever-present, ever looming threat from the dreaded Other? Check.

    Consistently dehumanizes an entire group with the express purpose of ‘defeating and destroying’ the threat they supposedly represent once and for all, whilst also blaming the current political and economic persuasion on them, or at least one factor of many? Check.

    We call them like we see them.

    Isnt it crazy that a far right group, with actual (pictures of) neo Nazi ties, actual racist slogans, thug and criminal activity, gets to somehow point its finger at Muslims and call Muslims fascists?
    It has always baffled me how people could be so blind to what is right in front of them.
    The explanation I always think of is that people are simply bound by their extreme hate of Muslims. So they are purposely turning a blind eye to the facts.

    Here is an interesting thing I saw yesterday, a possible other explanation:
    “The Big Lie: Nazi Propaganda”
    By the time Nazism arose in Germany in the 1930s, anti-Semitism was nothing new — not by a long shot. The J­ewish people had suffered a long history of prejudice and persecution. And although Nazis perpetuated centuries-old lies, this time those lies would have their most devastating effects. Like never before, anti-Semitism was manifested in a sweeping national policy known as “the Final Solution,” which sought to eliminate Jews from the face of the Earth.
    To accomplish this, Adolf Hitler and his minister of propaganda, Joseph Goebbels, launched a massive campaign to convince the German people that the Jews were their enemies. Having taken over the press, they spread lies blaming Jews for all of Germany’s problems, including the loss of World War I. One outrageous lie dating back to the Middle Ages claimed that Jews engaged in the ritual killings of Christian children and used their blood in the unleavened bread eaten at Passover [source: Landau].
    Using Jews as the scapegoat, Hitler and his cronies orchestrated what they called “the big lie.” This theory states that no matter how big the lie is (or more precisely, because it’s so big), people will believe it if you repeat it enough. Everyone tells small lies, Hitler reasoned, but few have the guts to tell colossal lies [source: Hoffer]. Because a big lie is so unlikely, people will come to accept it.
    This theory helps us understand so many of the lies throughout history. Although we’ve barely scratched the surface of all those lies that deserve (dis)honorable mentions, you can satiate your historical curiosity by browsing the lists on the next page.

    @Sir David “It was not me guv?” lol!

  • Xithurel

    I and most of my fellow Jews whenever we hear the name Pamela Geller share Mindys observations of her. She is in fact a JION and has never ever been considered anything but. We have real terms for false individuals but Mindy pretty much laid it out there. [snipped]

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/GargamelGold CriticalDragon1177

    @Emperor

    We shouldn’t be surprised by this given how Spencer and Geller feel. Its also not just the two of them who are defending him and claiming that his arrest was somehow politically motivated, off course it wasn’t, and the only people who will be believe that will be the people who have fallen for the lies of the anti Muslim “counter Jihad”

  • Larry

    Can’t you just hear the vitriol being spewed by Geller and Spencer if a citizen of say Afghanistan entered the U.S. on a false passport.

  • mindy1

    Pamela Geller is a JION(jew in name only) and I will NOT claim her as one of my own

    In the video there is a passport shown in the name of Paul Harris ? Who he ?
    has tommy being using more than one false passport ?
    Interesting that Mrs MacBeth condems the illeagal entry of criminals but not tommy ;-)

    Sir David

  • Sir David ( Illuminati membership number 5:32)

    I am so enjoying this story .
    Firstly in the UK if a defendant has no job and only limited savings the court will appoint a lawyer for him. So why the fund raising ? Who will account for the money being spent ?
    Secondly ,is being a full time loon , running ( usually running away ) the EDL count as a full time job ? If so is he claiming the dole at the same time, I really want someone in the UK to report him to the fraud hotline .
    Thirdly Who is Andrew McMaster ? Is the passport a USA one or a British one . If the former , who helped him get one ( hello Mrs MacBeth )
    If the latter the British Government looks upon such things as a serious offence and Mr Robinson is likley to get lots of time to reflect on his stupidity.
    Fourthly What defence can he have to the charge? A look-a-like ? Astral projection ? It was not me guv? Hologram ? Doppleganger ?

    More to come folks I am sure
