Historically, there have been no restrictions on who could speak and what could be said at the famed Speakers’ Corner in London’s Hyde Park.
But that was before Theresa May’s government decided to fabricate a terror threat from “right-wing extremists” that is supposedly equivalent to the jihad terror threat.
Last week, Tommy Robinson tried to speak at Speakers’ Corner but was stopped by police.
Today, he spoke there amid rioting by Muslims determined to silence him.
Police, not surprisingly, did little to stop the rioters, focusing more on the Britons who were there to defend the freedom of speech.
Robinson read the speech that Martin Sellner, the Austrian free speech activist, had intended to deliver about threats to the freedom of speech, but was banned from entering the country.
Britain has recently banned Sellner, Brittany Pettibone, Lauren Southern, and Lutz Bachmann, all for the crime of opposing jihad terror and Sharia oppression, and of course has previously banned Pamela Geller and me for the same offense.
This petty authoritarianism is the act of a society in its death throes.
The May government is bowing to the new masters of Britain, who support Sharia blasphemy restrictions, and handing them the leadership of the country.
Theresa May will go down in British history, if there are any free Britons in future generations, as the most venal, banal and self-serving of traitors, but a traitor and betrayer of her nation nonetheless.
