Thread on Tommy Robinson #TommyRobinson (1)

Who funds the Rally's ? - WHO FUNDS THE COURT COSTS ?

DO NOT BE FOOLED this is not 'Grass Roots'

It is funded by wealthy far right groups - mostly in the 🇺🇸.
(2) Read this article that links to #TommyRobinson Islamaphobia

The source of misinformation is The GATESTONE INSTITUTE.

"claimed in the piece that the French state had 'lost control' of such areas, where an 'estimated 5 million Muslims live'"

Wikipedia (disputed) described Gatestone as

"a right-wing[2][3][4] anti-Muslim[a] think tank with a focus on Islam and the Middle East. .. attracted attention for publishing false articles and being a source of viral falsehoods."

This is data on funding from an organisation called the

"MIDDLE EAST FORUM" - MEF Funded Gatestone with $Millions

This data is available on this website -

Here from August 2018 the Middle East Forum boasting their involvement in the release of Tommy Robinson.

You might have also seen on BBC a chap called Daniel Pipes get a slot.

Another (Canada) link to their crusade is Rebel Media run by Ezra Levant.

VICE Magazine talks about the big business behind their hate industry.

"Tommy Robinson listed as 'Shillman Fellow' personality to tout an anti-Islam line"

Look who else has joined Rebel Media. 🤢

So we have multi-levels of support funding (MEF), hate rallys (Tommy) and pseudo journalism (Katie) covered.

What we need now is political support to oil the wheels and keep the message a bit more high-brow.

Who else do Gatestone use for their message?
(9) #TommyRobinson

So here are a few Gatestone Institute events - people who talk to support the wider agenda of their group.

This little run of talks was -

> John Bolton
> Rabbi Jonathan Sacks
> Steve Bannon

Other events included Tories

> Daniel Finkelstein
> Baroness Cox

This Haaretz article suggests it's just a few gullible people - Given the detail above I'm not convinced. The funding is linked.

(11) Here is @DannyTheFink wriggling when @ AbiWilks

Called him out. Danny was STILL DOING GATESTONE EVENTS IN 2018.
