The EDL as formed around Tommy Robinson was the first big protest movement to focus on negative and very real impacts of increasingly concentrated Islamic populations abutting non Muslim communities.

Tommy was always massively against exclusionary, racist, ethno nationalism /1
Because the EDL was painted and maligned as far-right, racist and ethno nationalist, people with those views always tried to infiltrate and subvert, especially when Tommy was jailed by the Government.

Just because these goose stepping Nazis wanted the EDL to be what the press told them it should be, didn't make it happen.

Tommy Robinson is popular because he rejects Nazis because most of Britain rejected goose stepping Nazis in 1939.

No matter how many brigades you muster on YouTube, Twitter or Gab, most can see you for what you are and reject you.

The reason a Jew like me saw Tommy as something different was because he rejects both the ridiculous far-right views of Israel as a dream "ethno-state" and far-left & Islamic hatred of Israel for being a modern state on land reclaimed from Islamic conquest /5
Advice for far-right which you'll ignore.

Concentrate on working out what your culture, your values & your identity are. And how to accommodate non hostile others around you. Stop looking to blame the Jew for your powerlessness.

And have a shit ton of kids with good dads.
The BNP's popularity came despite Nazi sympathies of its leadership (which they hid).

Tommy took "your crowds" easily because they never wanted to follow Nazis but nobody else spoke up about Islamisation and government Dhimmitude until he did. /7
