Yesterday it happened. Facebook succumbed and banned Tommy Robinson (and me) on largely spurious grounds because they don’t like what is being highlighted. It’s hard to believe this wasn’t connected to his Panodrama video being viewed 1 million times in under 24 hours.
This video and podcast is a mash up of yesterday and today’s vlogs. I recorded this just before learning about the banning of Mohammed’s Koran.
One issue I raise here, what does the deletion of Tommy Robinson’s Facebook page mean for the case that the UK’s Attorney General is trying to decide on? The entire case rests on a Facebook live stream!
They have banned the Koran from Amazon. But not just any Koran: they’ve banned the edition of the complete text of the Koran co-authored by best selling writer, Tommy Robinson along with Peter McLoughlin. Peter McLoughlin’s other book “Easy Meat” is the ONLY scholarly review of the entire subject of Muslim rape gangs raping and enslaving non-Muslim young girls in the UK for the last four decades.
I just recevied this email from Tommy Robinson’s co-author of Mohammed’s Koran, their joint book which contains the entire unedited text of the Koran and 100 page introduction. Mohammed’s Koran is purely re-ordered in chronological order. You can find my review of it at New English Review.
Peter McLoughlin writes:
Amazon have banned Mohammed’s Koran and deleted it from their database (which means even second hand copies cannot be sold). This is the twenty-first century equivalent of the Nazis taking out the books from university libraries and burning them.
Can you think of another scholarly book on Islam that has been banned by Amazon? Mein Kampf is for sale on Amazon. As are books like the terrorist manual called The Anarchist Cookbook.
My recent research shows that the content of Mohammed’s Koran is being taught in universities across the West i.e. they are teaching the chronological order of the Koran and what this means re abrogation. However the academics are using a 1953 book which is being reprinted every two years. Clearly they know this subject is important (or else an obscure scholarly book from 1953 would not be reprinted every two years).
Having spent far too many years doing research in universities I know how they desperately scrabble around for subjects on which to write books and articles. So I know that if this was any other subject than one which truthfully explains the pervasive and perennial problem of Islamic terrorism, then there would be half a dozen books published on it over a couple of decades. But I suspect no academic dares to write an updated account of this subject for fear either a) Muslims will kill them or b) the general public might get wind of the importance of the topic.
Amazon refuse to re-instate the book and refuse to explain why it has been banned.
So they have banned the No.1 best-selling exegesis of the Koran. I can’t get my head round it. Every few weeks for the past 18 months they had emailed me asking to put it into special sales programmes, as it was selling so well. For 18 months they sought to profit even more from the sales. This is a book where verified Amazon customers left over 1000 five star reviews of the book over the last 18 months.
As dark as my vision is, I thought we were ten to twenty years away from dissenting books from being banned.
I suppose I should take some pride in having written a book with 600 footnotes that is worth banning. I feel like I am in the company of William Tyndall. One of the things that motivated me to write that book was I thought that virtually every other book on Islam pulled its punches.
This picture is from last night. An hour ago Panodrama passed 1M views on Facebook through 100% viral spread. Facebook have deleted Tommy’s page (and my entire account too as they seem to have taken out anyone who was admin or editor on that page).

Right at the end of the post is my special gift: a remastered, multi-camera version of Kelly Day singing How they Rule Ya with enhanced audio, but first….
I made a short podcast and video based on the reactions to Panodrama on Sunday. I wanted to add a few videos that really show what Tommy’s crowd was like and the absolute insanity of the far-left, Hope not Hate inspired zombies who turned out to oppose him. First up is Avi Yemeni’s great little video.
I also enjoyed the contrasts in Godless Spellcheker’s video between Tommy Robinson supporters who can articulate real, solid grievances and reasons for attending vs the so called anti-fascists who are uniformly clueless.
This was sent to me concerning the Godless Spellchecker’s video:
It is nominally impartial, but captures the bigotry and misinformation emanating from the left; at 3.30 an idiot declares of ‘the fascists’, “the first people they go for are the socialists and the trade unionists” – clearly not familiar with the National Socialists – before “it ends up with the gas chambers and the extermination camps.” This appropriation of anti-Semitism, by people aligned with Labour and Momentum who actually perpetrate it, is a worrying recent development. Then at 7.00, a young moron shows his opposition to fascism by insisting that Tommy Robinson “is a terrorist and his band of fascists should be… locked up and taken off our streets”. I saw these people, waving Communist Party flags, and would have spoken to them myself but I’m not confident I would have kept my temper. The other video I’ve watched this morning also makes the insupportable and possibly slanderous link between Tommy Robinson and anti-Semitism (like you, I’m not keen on real Nazis and tend to be reasonably good at spotting them; nothing I’ve ever heard or seen of Tommy suggests he is – didn’t he recently declare himself a Zionist?!).
If you’re looking for a good, straight, written piece on Panodrama and its implications for the UK’s state broadcaster, James Delingpole has provided an excellent piece in Breitbart:
Did you see that shocking BBC Panorama documentary about the bullying, Soros-funded, far-left, anti-freedom of speech propaganda group currently touring British schools with the Government’s approval, turning kids into brainwashed progressives who believe that “Islamophobia” is a bigger threat than radical Islam? No. And you never will.
That’s because instead of holding these far left thugs to account, the BBC considers them to be allies, fellow travellers, kindred spirits. Hence the disgraceful allegations that the BBC’s flagship documentary series Panorama got in bed with one such organisation — HOPE Not Hate — in order to carry out a hit job on Tommy Robinson.
Next on the parade of hate from the far-left are these tweets from blue tick verified Guardian writer, Hannah Jane Parkinson. She, obviously, has never spent much time studying Tommy Robinson but she can say, as an absolute FACT that Tommy is an “antisemite”. Obviously Jews who have spent time with Tommy, such as Avi Yemeni or myself are unable to detect Tommy’s fictional Jew hatred as well as Hannah. There’s a screenshot, obviously, because she may well realise that having stated something as a “fact” she has no defence that she was stating her opinion.
If her point was that Tommy doesn’t like associating with Jews or music by Jewish authors then this reply tweet rather sums up her insanity.
You can’t fix stupid but you can sue for libel.
The BBC’s official response from Panorama is worth including:
Obviously, like all of the far-let, they’re completely obsessed with “real name blah blah blah” and they’re still claiming that one day they’ll broadcast a Panorama about Tommy Robinson. That may be, but I’ll bet with anyone who want to that nothing which features anything from this Hope not Hate production will come out in the next 3 months. They may try again, but this production and these methods are burned.
This is going to drag on because The BBC doesn’t know when to throw their hand in and fold. Good. It will be an open sore we can pick at.
A dishonourable mention also goes to this MEP nobody’s ever heard of who also trotted out the usual insane ramblings of far-left zombies who’ve never studied Tommy Robinson and will believe any propaganda that Hope not Hate put out.
And after that ugliness we’ll end with some beauty! How They Rule Ya (Yes, Hannah, it’s a version of Hallelujah by the Jew (((Leonard Cohen))) we all know that. Performed by Kelly Day from Canada. This is my own video mash up from two sources and with a re-mixing of the sound for a bit more presence and liveliness!
