The Finsbury Park terror attack has lead to a search for somebody to blame and in Tommy Robinson they have found their man to blame. I am not saying I agree with Tommy Robinson but take note of how the actions of one single disturbed person somehow gets twisted and in to a debate concerning freedom of speech. In my opinion Tommy Robinson is wrong about Islam and Muslims or at least a lot of what he criticizes about Islam and Muslims would still be true if you change the words Muslim and Islam to people and religion.
Piers Morgan needs to get from that high hoarse he rides upon some of the things that he said to Tommy Robinson was just a deliberate attempt of belittling a simple minded idiot and blaming him for something he had nothing to do with. I am not a Tommy Robinson or EDL fan and I challenge anybody to not look at the holy books (the Bible has some very controversial content as well) look at the history if you want to see who the aggressor is in the Middle East.
‘Piers Morgan said “Show some damn respect for people’s religious beliefs. ‘You’re sounding like a complete lunatic. You’re sounding like a bigoted lunatic. You’re stirring up hatred.’ ‘You are stirring up hatred, you are abusing people’s religion, you’re abusing their faith and you’re being a complete disgrace.”
Them words from a man that has worked for Rupurt Mordoch since 1994 from the age of 29 when he was appointed editor of the News of the World by Rupert Murdoch, which made him the youngest editor of a British national newspaper in more than half a century.
To me what Piers Morgan is trying to do is obvious and scripted, he is attempting to pass the blame to Tommy Robinson and EDL and away from the mainstream media and people like Rupurt Mordoch for “stirring up hatred.”
Tommy Robinson is a hate filled fool that fails to see the real problem with the world and is now apart of the problem but he is entitled to have is opinion and people are entitled to listen. But to blame him when the British media are portraying immigrants as rats in political cartoons and is read by millions everyday is blatant scapegoating.
Why don’t Piers Morgan question the mainstream media? Because Piers Morgan works for the mainstream media.
Unfortunately this kind of racism and hatred towards Muslims is not confined to small groups of right winged extremists, it’s everywhere! And most of it is not caused by individuals like Tommy Robinson (who most of us would not even know existed unless the media bought it to our attention.) It is actually caused by the hatred the mainstream media print on a daily basis.
Tommy Robinson said the mosque had a history of creating ‘radical jihadists’ and was guilty of ‘promoting hate and segregation’. The irony in seeing somebody tweet that. Tommy Robinson you have a history preaching radical racism and you are guilty of promoting hate and segregation but his reach is much smaller than the mainstream medias reach. In fact I would even say Tommy Robinson is a product of the mainstream media created by them and made well known by them.
