Breaking: Tommy Robinson Attacked by “Youths”

Confirmed by Gates of Vienna, and initially from a tip to this site. Thank you Art

Last night English Defence League leader Tommy Robinson was attacked and beaten up by a gang of “Asians”. The following report just came in from a source in the EDL:

He was out driving, when he saw a car similar to his wife’s, driven by a blond white girl. The other car flashed its lights so Tommy pulled over.

A group of Pakistani youths wearing knuckle dusters poured out. Tommy was knocked out pretty quickly, and they gave him a good kicking.

He looks pretty beaten up, but no bones were broken, and no eyes or teeth are missing. He had a brain scan this morning. We don’t know the results yet.

He has spoken to The Sun, who asked whether he had called the police. Tommy said there was no point, as a racial attack on a white guy was of no interest to them.

That’s all the information I have at the moment. If anything further comes in, I’ll post it.

  1. Some readers of this post might have at least a momentary doubt about the veracity of Mr. Robinson’s account, when they learn that he did not bother to call the police following his assault and battery. However, based on personal experience, I can assure them that his explanation has the ring of truth.

    I work as a physical therapist for a school system in the American South; my work requires that I go to all- or nearly all-black schools, where I am sometimes subjected to racial insults by (usually high school-age) students as they see me in the hallways or the parking lot. I no longer bother to report these, as experience has taught me that doing so is worse than useless: I might find myself being dressed down for being insufficiently culturally sensitive . . . and I might not be able to control my temper one more time if faced again by that perverse response. So, as did Mr. Robinson, I just ignore the barbs and go about my business. (Needless to say, a black school system employee subjected to racial slurs by white students would be able to get immediate redress . . . but that’s the new negative-image Jim Crow regime for you.)

  2. The violence is growing and spreading, I hope that the Moslems don’t manage to kill any of the leaders of the EDL, but as surprised that they didn’t kill Tommy.

  3. Dave:

    It was a Muslim gang. I also read the planted story on FB by the EDL splinter group who do not like TR. But it was who Tommy said it was. More on this later.

  4. You should at least and at a minimum ask yourself some questions about this story:

    1. Why is the sole source of it Gates of Vienna? And why are they so vague about their ‘source’?

    2. Why, when in Britain there are plenty news outlets on the right side of the aisle that would publish this, isn’t there a single one that has picked up on it?

    3. Why doesn’t even the EDL’s own newsfeed report on this? Because the EDL would foresake the opportunity to publicise a ‘Muslim attack’ on its own Dear Leader??? Pigs will fly, as they say.

    In all likelihood Ned May has been duped (perhaps in bona fide) by either an overzealous EDLer or an impostor. Sources close to ‘Tommy’ claim he got embroiled with fellow football hooligans of the ‘Luton MIGs’. Considering he has a reputation for, shall we say ‘conflict resolution by means of his own fists’, that doesn’t sound too implausible.

    My own take on it:

    I’ll take my post down if it’s proved incorrect.

    Critiquing Muslim extremism is fine but uncritically swallowing a story involving Muslim Pakistanis assaulting TR doesn’t do your cause any good…

  5. Gert:

    Let’s see if I can help you.

    1. Gates of Vienna got the story from me. What happened was, a commenter on another post who claimed to be from Luton explained what had just happened. He had a couple of details wrong but he basically explained it as it was. That comment is still up on Vlad somewhere. I immediately checked in with the EDL and told Gates of Vienna the story. Once the EDL confirmed the basics and added some detail, Gates published it first and as they had more and more recent information than I did, I used their post. But the initial information came from a comment here on Vlad, and as I said, was then confirmed by people very close to Tommy Robinson.

    2. This is a good question. I hope the answer is not disquieting. Perhaps they will once, and if, the CCTV footage is published of this attack.

    3. The EDL did report on it. Michael Coren will have Tommy on as a guest soon. The video will be up here. You can hear Tommy discuss all this in his own words shortly. Can’t say what day exactly but soonish.

    Your analysis is a common one and their are comments on facebook which add fuel to it. However the brush up TR had with another football club was several weeks before this incident.

    I do appreciate your stance and your critical analysis however and it is the right approach. Myself and gates of Vienna thought carefully and checked all this out with the best sources we have, which are very good ones, within the EDL itself. Now this is not proof per se. But it is confirmation from trusted sources, one of whom was at the hospital.

    I have questions of my own, for example, why not report this to the police? A commenter in this thread above answered that one in a highly disturbing way but I have no doubt it is accurate. It is in fact, disturbing precisely because it is accurate.

    If you get more information or actual evidence please feel free to report it here. I would be interested. Meanwhile, I’ll wait till Tommy discusses it and-or the CCTV footage comes out.

    One last thing.

    If it was white, non-Muslims who attacked Tommy, I would bet everything I own that either they, or the government of the UK itself, would have posted footage of it on youtube via a recording at the time or CCTV footage the moment it became widely known that Tommy had said it was Muslims. There would be no better way to destroy the EDL than that.

  6. Well, I will follow this story here and ‘look forward’ to Tommy’s own version.

    ”I have questions of my own, for example, why not report this to the police? A commenter in this thread above answered that one in a highly disturbing way but I have no doubt it is accurate. It is in fact, disturbing precisely because it is accurate. “

    The commenter in question is sadly mistaken. If Tommy does have credible prima facie evidence (witnesses, CCTV, forensic, other) of the attack then not only would the police investigate but also vigorously prosecute the perpetrators, whatever colour or creed they may be. Tommy’s refusal to go to the police is foolish and makes his story look suspect. It’s to be hoped, assuming for argument’s sake he’s honest about this, that the EDL isn’t planning to take the Law into their own hands because they ‘don’t trust the Islamised police’ or similar nonsense.

    If he hasn’t got any credible evidence I may still have to conclude that Tommy may have caused an (undeserved) response from his attackers, Muslims or other, by means of taunts or insults. Years ago I (a non-Muslim ‘white’) was beaten up severely by equally non-Muslim ‘whites’. CCTV footage later showed that I had ‘insulted’ them, thereby ‘provoking’ the attack. The police recommended not to prosecute because ‘you (I) wouldn’t look good in court [with those insults]’!

    Remains also the question of the photos which look heavily photoshopped to me.

    You claim the EDL did report on it. Where?
