‘Theresa May ignoring terrorism while virtue signalling about ‘far right”
Anti-Islam activist Tommy Robinson has slammed British Prime Minister Theresa May for her attack on President Donald Trump, accusing May of virtue signalling about the “far right” and ignoring radical Islamic terrorism and Islamism.

May and Muslim Mayor of London Sadiq Khan, lambasted Trump for retweeting a series of videos from Britain First leader Jayda Fransen.
Robinson told Breitbart London Editor in Chief Raheem Kassam – also Muslim – that he was “embarrassed” by the British prime minister, adding that she may have scuppered a good Brexit deal with the US.
“I feel completely embarrassed and I want the American public to understand that the majority of British people do not feel this way; this is an agenda being pushed by the media. We don’t feel this way at all,” Robinson said.
The former English Defence League leader said repressive Islamist regimes and Islamic terrorism were the real problems, and not the “far right”.
“Our prime minister watches a video of a man getting thrown off a rooftop and a statue of the Virgin Mary being smashed on the floor… and she’s talking about the far right,” Robinson told Kassam.
“Two days ago… two men were arrested in the late preparations of a sophisticated terror attack. Why is our country not up in arms about that? It is happening every week.
“In the last seven months, we have had four terror attacks where children were killed, women stabbed in the throat, vehicular attacks… rather than Theresa May talking about this, she is on her high horse talking about tweets.”
“I think what Trump has done here is shone a light on the hypocrisy and what we’re up against,” Robinson said.
According to Robinson, “We live in a post-free speech era. It’s a facade that we have free speech. Anyone who steps outside the status quo will have the full force of the media, the state, and the establishment thrown at them to destroy them.”
“I faced nine years of harassment, persecution, and arrests for speaking about Islam,” he said. “No matter what your politics are, we are in Britain and we have freedom of speech and freedom of assembly and we should be free to do that.”
“The country I thought I lived in when I started my activism is different to the country I thought we lived in.”
As leader of the EDL, Robinson had worked tirelessly to expose the Muslim grooming gangs in the UK, but was vilified for his efforts.
He comes from Luton, just north of London, an Islamist hotspot. A decade ago, there was only one mosque in Luton, Robinson says, and today there are at least thirty in a population of around 200 000. This has led to a two-tier policing system, he says.
In the last seven months Britain has had to deal with four terrorist attacks and security services prevented at least eight planned attacks.

Trump’s visit to the UK has been dropped following his retweets of a Britain First member, a diplomat revealed.
The working visit to the UK by the President had been planned for January 2018 but US diplomats has cancelled his tour.
May publicly criticised Trump for sharing the videos. It was revealed by diplomats that the January plan had been abandoned amid the Twitter spat with no new date set.
A US diplomat told The Telegraph: “The idea of a visit has obviously been floated, but not December and not January. I would not expect a Trump visit in January.”
May said that Trump sharing the videos of Britain First had “legitimised” the group. Speaking on a visit to Jordan the British leader said: “I think that we must all take seriously the threat that far-Right groups pose, both in terms of the terrorist threat that is posed by those groups and the necessity of dealing with extremist material which is far-Right as well.
“I have commented in the past on issues in the United States on this matter.
“In the United Kingdom we take the far-Right very seriously and that is why we ensure that we deal with these threats and this extremism wherever it comes and whatever its source.”

CLIMATEThe United States' government scientific organization, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), predicts zero sunspots from 2031 to 2040. This is an extreme situation that has not occurred in as long as humanity has been counting sunspots, and it leads us into uncharted territory in terms of our solar system. However, this prediction aligns with the warnings of the world-renowned solar researcher Valentina Zharkova for many years, who indicated in 2019 various signs of this catastrophic phenomenon, including the extreme hailstorms we have seen in Europe and the world this summer. The forecast and various observations this year give cause for very significant concern. In this unique analysis, Free West Media explains why.
EUROPEAN ELECTIONSOn Saturday, August 26, representatives of six European nationalist parties gathered in Budapest. The meeting was initiated by the Hungarian party Mi Hazánk and took place in the national parliament. Representatives of the parties signed a joint declaration that not only reaffirms the parties' friendship but also their unity on a range of complex political issues. A surprisingly clear and radical manifesto was established. The hope is that this cooperation will lead to success in the EU elections and eventually result in the formation of a group in the European Parliament. For Swedish nationalism, this meeting marks a success as Sweden, for the first time, has a party represented in a leading nationalist cooperation in Europe. Free West Media was present at this historic event.
Sweden will have to wait a bit longer for NATO membership, according to Turkey's Justice Minister Jilmaz Tunc. First, Sweden must extradite the "terrorists" Turkey wants and stop the desecration of the Quran.
The Russian attack helicopter Ka-52 is considered one of the world's best and has struck fear in Ukraine, where it has hunted down tanks and other armored vehicles, often beyond the range of many light anti-aircraft systems. However, it has met its match in the Swedish air defense missile system RBS 70, which has quickly led to significant losses for the Russian helicopter forces.
Alternative for Germany (AfD) held a party conference on July 29-30 to select candidates for the upcoming EU election next year. EU Parliament member Maximilian Krah, belonging to the party's more radical, ethnonationalist faction, was appointed as the top candidate. The party's two spokespersons delivered powerful speeches criticizing the EU's failed migration policy and trade sanctions that isolate Europe and Germany from the rest of the world. They argued that it's time for the EU to return a significant portion of its power to national parliaments. However, they have dropped the demand for Germany to exit the EU.
The rising popularity of AfD has raised strong concerns within the establishment. Despite lies and demonization in the media and isolation from the overall political establishment, the party continues to grow. Certain representatives of the party are accused of becoming increasingly "extreme," and in an unusual move, the influential weekly newspaper Der Spiegel demanded that AfD be "banned."

After a criminal complaint in Belgium against the President of the European Commission, the so-called SMS-case, now takes a new turn. The judge responsible for the investigation will likely gain access to the secret messages exchanged between Ursula von der Leyen and Albert Bourla, CEO of Pfizer, at least if they haven't been deleted.
Arktos has distinguished itself by publishing groundbreaking philosophers and social critics. Now, the publisher's international distributor has abruptly terminated the cooperation, and more than 400 already printed titles cannot reach their audience. There is strong evidence that the distributor has been under pressure, something that has also happened in Sweden. We have spoken with Arktos founder Daniel Friberg about the ongoing struggle for freedom of speech in a shrinking cultural corridor.
