(Tea Party 247) – Convicted citizen journalist Tommy Robinson, who was just sentenced to prison for reporting on a Muslim rape gang case in his motherland, the UK, has made a public plea to President Donald Trump to grant him emergency political asylum in the United States.
We sincerely pray it is granted.
Earlier this month, Robinson was found to be in contempt of court over a Facebook Live broadcast he had done outside the criminal trial of a notorious Muslim rape gang ooutside Leeds Crown Court in May of 2018.
According to himself and his supporters (and anyone with a shred of common sense) he was merely engaging in journalism, and there was a time when any Western, supposedly free nation in the world would have agreed that simply reporting outside a criminal trial was very much within the bounds of free speech.
He now faces a maximum penalty of two years in prison.
Summit News reports, however, that he plans on requesting emergency political asylum in the US as he quite reasonably fears for his life. He told the BBC this is “for who I am, not what I have done”.
He made the public request to President Trump on Alex Jones’ show last week and was interviewed by Gavin McGinness was well.
According to the United States Refugee Act of 1980, which is consistent with the United Nations’ 1967 Protocol on Refuggess, resettlement of persons subject to persecution in their homelands is provided.
This includes cases were people are likely to face persecution for their “political opinion”.
It is certianly chilling that this applies to a citizen of the UK, our nation’s ancestral homeland and our closest ally, but it does indeed apply perfectly to Robinson’s case.
Particularly when you consider that a prison sentence could be tantamount to a death sentence for the citizen journalist.
As he and some of his supporters have expressed, there is concern that, considering Robinson’s work to expose the negative influence of mass Muslim migration in English communities, placing him in the British prison population, which is largely dominated by Muslims, could certainly result in his murder.
The last time he was in jail, he lost over 40 pounds because it was other inmates who were preparing his meals.
He also says he was both physically and psychologically abused.
