Have you been wondering how the odious racist Tommy Robinson has managed to attract so much apparent support? The answer’s simple. He’s being bankrolled by US right-wingers.
This is by no means unusual. US evangelicals are driving anti-trans groups over here and tried to derail the Irish campaign to repeal anti-abortion law. The Russians, as you may have noticed, are pulling all kinds of strings. But it’s rarely quite so overt. This is a press release from the US Middle East Foundation, a right-wing, anti-Muslim group with deep pockets:
MEF is sponsoring and organizing the second â€œFree Tommy Robinsonâ€ gathering in London on July 14.Â MEF previously provided all the funding and helped organized the first â€œFree Tommy Robinsonâ€ event held June 9 in London.
…The Middle East Forum is aiding Mr. Robinsonâ€™s defense in three main ways:
- Legally â€“ By using Legal Project monies to fund his legal defense.
- Diplomatically â€“ By bringing foreign pressure on the UK government to ensure Mr. Robinsonâ€™s safety and eventual release.
- Politically â€“ By organizing and funding the 25,000-person â€œFree Tommyâ€ London rally on June 9 and now the July 14 protest, also taking place in London.
It’s not a conspiracy theory when the conspirators publish press releases about what they’ve done.
