Human Rights Activist Tommy Robinson Denied Visa to Speak to US Lawmakers in Washington DC

Tommy Robinson

US members of Congress have invited human rights activist Tommy Robinson to speak in Washington DC.

Robinson is an outspoken critic of radical Islam and the Muslim grooming gangs in England.
The liberal media in Great Britain attacks Robinson for speaking out against this modern day horror.

In May, Robinson was arrested for contempt of court while filming outside a Pakistani grooming gang trial in Leeds, as the case was under a reporting ban. In August, the charge was struck down by Lord Chief Justice Burnett and two other judges — but he will now be subjected to a retrial.

Now this…

Robinson was not granted a visa to come to America to speak this week.

The Telegraph reported:
(Note: The Telegraph describes Robinson as a “far right activist” because he speaks out against Muslim rape gangs.)

British far-Right activist Tommy Robinson has not been granted a US visa to meet with Republican lawmakers in Washington this week, an organiser of the meeting said on Monday.

Robinson is the founder of the English Defence League, or EDL, which in the past has staged violent demonstrations against Islam.

He was jailed by British authorities in 2013 for using a passport in someone else’s name to travel to the United States from Britain. He was later jailed on a separate charge of contempt of court, but was released in August.

Daniel Pipes, president of the conservative Philadelphia-based Middle East Forum which invited Robinson to the United States, said the British activist recently applied for a visa at the US Embassy in London but now realizes it “will take a while” for him to be allowed into the country.

Robinson had planned to attend an event focusing on Islam which seven conservative Republican members of the US House of Representatives have convened for Wednesday.
