If you had told me that twelve years after 9/11, patriots and freedom lovers dedicated to opposing the ideology behind those attacks on the homeland (and over 21,000 deadly Islamic attacks worldwide since) would be demonized, dehumanized and the object of a campaign to get us banned from an allied nation -- I would have had you Baker-acted. It could only be the result of insanity or ....... defeat.
And yet that is exactly where we are. Robert Spencer and I are scheduled to join SION President's Council members and EDL leadership, Tommy Robinson and Kev Carroll, and SIOE leader Anders Gravers on June 29th for a Memorial for Lee Rigby in Woolwich.
Islamic supremacists and leftist thugs are strong-arming British authorities to ban us. Jihad preachers, hate-spewing imams, annihilationists and Muslim Brotherhood groups like CAIR travel freely to the UK. But defenders of freedom are besieged by goons.
And Labour MP Keith Vaz, chairman of the Home Affairs select committee told HuffPost UK: "...Home Secretary should consider using her discretion to ban these two speakers from entering the country." Vaz is a notorious subversive and has been promoting a vicious agenda for decades. Back in 1995:
It was reported on Channel 4 News around ten years ago that Vaz was secretly taped saying he 'wanted to create an Asian [Muslim] colony' in an area of Leicester, and complaining that not enough Asians were moving in and not enough whites moving out. “'They (the whites) will know when to move out ... they'll get a visit from the men in grey suits, hahaha'."
He is currently serving under a cloud of ethics violations (here) and there are myriad calls for his suspension (here). The Committee on Standards and Privileges found that Mr Vaz had committed "serious breaches" of the MPs' code of conduct, as well as a contempt of the House of Commons.
Several years ago, Vaz led a march of thousands of Muslims in Leicester calling for Salman Rushdie’s book The Satanic Verses to be banned. And he has called for "islamo-faux-obia" to prosecuted as a "hate crime."
This attempt by goons and fascists to have us banned is one to watch. Check out Jessica Elgot of Huffington Post UK's coverage. Notice her description of us as "far right." So now freedom is the bailiwick of the far right? Interesting how the morally inverted mind perverts and subverts reality. Actually, I consider myself a classic liberal -- freedom of speech, freedom of conscience, and individual rights for all before the law -- Constitutional law. As for "anti-Islam," Elgot must be pro-jihad, because that is exactly what she is implying by smearing our work for freedom as "anti-Islam."
Elgot goes on to say, "The EDL also plan a 17-mile 'Walk of Honour' led by Robinson and deputy leader Kevin Carroll. A post about the event suggests that the two men plan to march through multicultural areas where tensions could be easily inflamed." Kowtowing to violent intimidation. Elgot blames Tommy and Kev for the violence she (and others) assume will happen if they walk down the street. Yet if any violence ensues, it is the responsibility of the ones who commit it, and no one else’s. The responsibility for one’s actions lies with the one who acts and no one else. Islamic supremacists and their allies in the mainstream media are trying to get us to accept the idea that we are responsible if Muslims riot and kill and blame what we say. Yet there is nothing you could say to me that would make me riot and kill. The responsibility is theirs, and they are the only ones who deserve condemnation.
Elgot obviously sanctions the violence and "inflammation" that would result if Tommy and Kev merely walk down the street. Elgot, a less than affable Eva Braun, is on the wrong side of history (as are most in her increasingly sordid profession). Hers is a prime example of the banality of evil.
"Pamela Geller, Robert Spencer To Speak At EDL Rally In Woolwich, Campaigners Call For UK Entry Ban" Jessica Elgot, Huffington Post, June 20, 2013
Anti-fascist campaigners have called on the home secretary to stop two far-right, anti-Islam activists from America speaking at an English Defence League rally in Woolwich, where Drummer Lee Rigby was murdered.
Atlas Shrugs' Pamela Geller and Jihad Watch's Robert Spencer, two prominent bloggers who founded the 'Stop The Islamization of America' campaign, gained worldwide notoriety for their anti-Islam subway posters in New York.
Nearly all of the signs, which read, 'In any war between the civilized man and the savage, support the civilized man. Support Israel. Defeat Jihad', were vandalised.
From (l-r) Jihad Watch's Robert Spencer, EDL's Kevin Carroll, Atlas Shrugs Blogger Pamela Geller and EDL leader Tommy Robinson
Labour MP Keith Vaz, chairman of the Home Affairs select committee told HuffPost UK: "I am alarmed that the EDL is planning this type of march in Woolwich.
"It is clear that the location, motivation and attendees at this march will incite hatred. Adding incendiary speakers such as Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer just fuels the fire.
"Before we have to pay the costs for the extra policing required for this demonstration the Home Secretary should consider using her discretion to ban these two speakers from entering the country.
"A ban should be enforced properly and physically stop people entering our borders. We cannot make the same mistake as we did with Sheikh Raed Salah.”
Hope Not Hate have sent an open letter to the home secretary with more than 2,000 signatures collected in less than 24 hours, asking for Geller and Spencer to be denied entry to the UK.
The letter reads: "We believe that their [Spencer and Geller's] ultimate objective is to incite hatred against all Muslims and the consequences of their very presence in the UK will give encouragement to racists and extremists, who seek to use the awful murder of Drummer Lee Rigby to further their hateful agenda.
"Geller and Spencer are the most prominent anti-Muslim activists in the United States and their organisation, the American Freedom Defense Initiative, is widely considered a hate organisation. It recently placed adverts on the transport systems of several cities calling Muslims 'savages'.
"We believe that there is no place for such hate in the United Kingdom."
EDL leader Tommy Robinson, real name Stephen Yaxley Lennon, has long been a fan of Geller and Spencer, tweeting support for their campaign shortly after the Boston Marathon bombings.
It's at moments like this that the American people should sit up and listen to Pamela Geller and robert spencer. #jihad— Tommy Robinson EDL (@EDLTrobinson) April 19, 2013
Geller has also asked for people to donate money to the EDL via her blog and compared the arrest of EDL members to The Night of the Long Knives purge in Nazi Germany.
The EDL plan a demonstration, with Geller and Spencer scheduled to speak along with Anders Gravers of the Danish group 'Stop the Islamisation of Europe', in Woolwich on 29 June, Armed Forces Day.
The post on their website says: "For these three pioneers of the counter-Jihad movement to congregate and speak in Woolwich is quite phenomenal. We shall give them a warm welcome. They are the voices of common sense in a world of wilful blindness."
The EDL also plan a 17-mile 'Walk of Honour' led by Robinson and deputy leader Kevin Carroll. A post about the event suggests that the two men plan to march through multicultural areas where tensions could be easily inflamed.
“The walk will follow a route that is not for the faint-hearted and has the possibility to create headline news before its conclusion in Woolwich. Tommy and Kev will be walking alone through some of the most dangerous neighbourhoods of London. A scary prospect for any man but for the two leaders of the EDL; they are brave men."
The Huffington Post UK has asked the Home Office to comment on the visit of Spencer and Geller.
