ORWELLIAN: Tommy Robinson jailed in UK for INSANE reason

Hundreds of demonstrators have been gathering in London this weekend to protest the arrest of Tommy Robinson. #FreeTommy has been trending all over social media. So what's got all these Brits so worked up? And who the heck is Tommy Robinson?

Robinson was arrested on Friday for “breach of the peace." So what does that mean? You're not going to believe this. He actually had the gall to film a group of Muslims outside a courthouse who had been accused of grooming children for sex slavery. This is but one of the many child sex scandals involving Muslim gangs, and Tommy Robinson has been trying to expose them. I mean, can you imagine the bold, unbridled impudence?!

Robinson was surrounded by multiple police officers and arrested. He would later be sentenced — in record time — for contempt of court, a charge he's actually quite familiar with. Tommy was charged for contempt of court one year ago over a gang rape case also involving Muslim migrants.

The judge was all too quick to get Robinson off the street and booked in a prison cell. He also ordered a media blackout for anyone in the UK looking to report on it. Is it me, or is the UK literally transforming into a George Orwell novel? It's kind of hard to put into words. What are the people in Britain supposed to do if their government: A) won't protect them from Islamists that don't see them has human beings and B) forbid them, and even jail them, for talking about it?

I'll tell you exactly what happens. The UK government is facilitating the rise of the violent far-right and they don't even know they're doing it. Tommy Robinson is no angel. He's a man that resorts to violence and his speech attracts some of the worst of the worst. Now, to his credit, he's abandoned multiple groups that he's started due to them becoming infested with Neo-Nazis and racists, but his speech and methods haven't changed. When your marches have been described as “hooligans versus jihadists" you might want to take a step back and reevaluate.

When people feel backed into a corner, they turn violent.

But the people in the UK and the rest of Europe are quite literally backed into a corner. The threat of some of these Islamist groups is very real, and the governments aren't doing a thing to address it. When people feel backed into a corner, they turn violent. They look to people like Tommy Robinson who are actually taking a stand.

I don't agree with everything Robinson stands for, but I do know that by silencing people — like him — who are trying to shine a light on what's going on, governments all over Europe are setting up a dangerous future.

As politicians and the mainstream media continue to insist that America is divided and at each other's throats, Dr. Ben Carson has a different message. He joined the "Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to discuss his time in the Trump administration and how we move forward and heal America. Overall, he says, we must realize "Americans are NOT each other's enemies."

Does parody even exist anymore? Filmmaker Ami Horowitz recently went to Yale University to ask students to sign his 'petition' to repeal the U.S. Constitution — and they actually did it!

Ami joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" recently to describe how this wasn't just a few people — this was 65 percent of those he asked, and NO ONE seemed to think it was a bad idea.

The far left is tearing apart the social fabric of our country in the name of "progress." From its emphasis on government dependency, to the $15 minimum wage, to the embrace of Marxist Critical Race Theory in our schools, the Left is destroying our culture and way of life.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck spoke with Christopher Rufo, director of the Center on Wealth and Poverty, about the latest insane example of the Marxist lies destroying the minds of our kids: A New York school sent parents a "white identities" chart advocating for "white traitors" and "white abolitionists."

There is an all-out assault on the social fabric of our country. The kids are NOT all right. In the name of "progress," we're destroying their minds with Marxist lies. In the name of "safety," we're destroying their souls by keeping them locked down.

On his Glenn TV special this week, Glenn Beck takes on the national suicide that the Left is committing by destroying our culture and way of life and how it's also leading to actual suicide of our kids. Experts on the front lines expose how the lies of critical race theory are crippling our children's future and provide tools for parents to fight back.

Finally, Glenn hears from a parent who tragically lost his teen son, who took his own life due to COVID isolation. He has a powerful message for parents, teachers, and politicians who he says are failing our kids.
