As we celebrate the 4th of July here in America, let us take a moment to remember all the freedoms we enjoy in this country, or at least, have enjoyed until the Obama administration.
Across the pond, in the UK and many other parts of Europe, such as France, a citizen can get arrested for think or expressing a point of view that other people don’t like or may get upset over.
This is what happened to anti-Islam spokesman and EGIDA UK organizer, Tommy Robinson when he posted an image himself holding a ‘FUCK ISIS’ flag.
The application claimed that Robinson “poses a significant risk of both violence and disorder… This is especially so in terms of his established capacity to organize disorder from an anti-Muslim perspective”.
His lawyer, Alison Gurden, explained:
“The mainstay of the application by Bedfordshire Police is that Tommy Robinson, while in France was pictured wearing an Anti-ISIS T-Shirt, and holding up an English Saint George Cross flag with ‘Fuck ISIS’ written across it, and that this was aimed at inciting racial hatred against Muslims.”
