The man being charged for this “crime” is Tommy Robinson, a PEDIGA UK organizer. Not only was he charge by police, but he's been given a football banning order and is having his passport taken away.
Muslim Engagement and Development (MEND), an “anti-Islamophobia” think tank with Islamist sympathies, said on Twitter that Mr. Robinson was “inciting hate” by mocking the genocidal terrorist group.
Mr. Robinson had travelled to France to watch the Euro 2016 tournament, leaving shortly before Bedfordshire Police planned to serve him with a fresh football banning order.
A previous three-year ban expired in 2014, and Mr. Robinson is not believed to have been involved in any football related disturbances since.
However, on his return to the UK, Bedfordshire Police immediately served him with the fresh application. A subsequent hearing at Luton Magistrates’ Court on Friday saw bail conditions imposed to have Robinson’s passport taken away.
The application claimed that he “poses a significant risk of both violence and disorder… This is especially so in terms of his established capacity to organize disorder from an anti-Muslim perspective”.
Adding: “Despite… recently reported ‘good conduct’ at Luton Town Football Club, significant concerns remain regarding his intentions and influences upon others to inflame racial hatred in a country where tensions are already high” – presumably because of recent terrorist attacks attributed to Islamic State (ISIS).
The court will hear Robinson's plea in September. The police have said that Robinson's flag and t-shirt were aimed at “inciting racial hatred” against Muslims. Robinson's lawyer plans on using their liberal logic to get the charges dropped, stating that they're going against themselves by linking ISIS to Muslims. Let's see them back-step that one.
