Facebook is now treating Tommy Robinson, or anyone who supports him, like Communist Soviet Union did to dissidents. If you agree with anything Tommy Robinson says, or if you promote his work, you will be hated, dehumanized and isolated.
In a shocking interview with Deadline – one of Denmark’s most popular news programs – viewers were left dumbstruck after watching Peter Andreas Münster, Facebook’s Head of Communications for the Nordic Region, admit to censoring virtually everything connected to UK activist and journalist Tommy Robinson.
Tommy Robinson achieved 1.2 million followers on Facebook, and until recently, was able to reach millions of people within 24 hours of posting on Facebook live-stream. His ability to leverage his Facebook audience was halted as Robinson reporting on the migrant grooming gang epidemic targeting young girls throughout the UK received worldwide attention. Robinson’s investigative journalism exposed powerful UK Politicians & Media’s incompetency & cover-ups concerning grooming gangs. Facebook now categorized Robinson as a “hate preacher” and has banned him from the social media platform.
Even more shocking is that Facebook is now deleting posts and banning profiles who merely mention anything connected to Robinson. However, Facebook’s Münster makes it clear you can say as many bad things (even if not true) about Robinson without punishment on their platform, As an example, Münster states, “You are allowed to write that you don’t like him, or that he’s an idiot”
Lief Donbaek, member of Denmark’s Socialist People’s Party, was blocked from posting for 24 hours on Facebook for mentioning Tommy Robinson. Free Press Society, who supports Robinson, has been banned from posting on their page. Furthermore, Chairman Aia Fog has been blocked for 30 days and “the company’s official profile has been threatened with removal all because they have just mentioned the British name.”
Facebook Representative Compares Tommy Robinson with ‘Butcher of Bosnia’
In the later part of the interview, Münster went so far as to say, Facebook considers “him [Tommy Robinson] a person in line with Ratko Mladic.”
“Ratko Mladic, nicknamed the ’butcher of Bosnia,’ is a convicted war criminal. He has been found guilty of committing war crimes, crimes against humanity, and genocide by the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY).” [Jihad Watch]
The Left is alienating Robinson from every single human being. Like Saul Alinsky said in “Rules for Radicals,” “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. … Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions.”
Additionally, Facebook is now taking down posts which encourage watching the interview.
“Subsequently, the state-owned Danmarks Radio, which broadcasts Deadline, posted a message on their Facebook page encouraging people to watch the interview. But this post was soon deleted by Facebook.”
“The newly elected Danish anti-immigration party Nye Borgerlige has now requested an official meeting with the Danish Prime Minister. Facebook’s censorship is on the agenda. Before being appointed Facebook’s chief of communication for the Nordic countries, Peter Andreas Münster worked in the press department of Det Radikale Venstre – a political party, which has one of Denmark’s most radical pro-immigration policies.”
The Democratic Society (Demsoc) explains, “Radikale Venstre literally translates as ‘the Radical Left’, though the party is usually translated into English as the ‘Social Liberal Party’ or the Radicals. The party mixes Denmark’s most liberal views on immigration, multiculturalism, social attitudes and is heavily in favor of globalization.”

First Facebook closed down the radical right wing activist Tommy Robinson’s profile. Then Facebook started deleting profiles that supported Tommy Robinson. And now Facebook are starting to delete posts that merely mention Tommy Robinson’s name.
Is that a way to deal with our common communication? This is what I, in a moment, will be asking Facebook’s Nordic Communication Chief Peter Münster.
Facebook has removed me. I had 1.2 million… I was the most interacted political Facebook page in Britain. I had a reach and an interaction that politicians could only dream of. If I went live, I would have 20,000 people watching me instantly, that would then spread to millions by the next day.
When the radical right-wing activist Tommy Robinson railed against immigration and Islam, his message once had a wide reach on Facebook. That is no longer the case. In February he was banned from Facebook and his page was closed. And not only that, lately his banning has had other consequences.
Lately a number of Danish Facebook users have found that their Facebook posts have been removed, apparently because they have merely mentioned Tommy Robinson. And that has resulted in intense condemnation.
Is our freedom of speech being destroyed? And why are the authorities not reacting, writes New Conservatives’ Lars Boje Mathiesen in his blog in Jyllands Posten.
The same question is asked by the legal practitioner and member of SF, Leif Donbaek, in Ekstra Bladet [newspaper]: whether a privately owned American company should unilaterally be dictating how we handle public debate.
While he, by the way, at the same time calls Robinson a giant idiot.
After sharing his blog on Facebook he too has been penalized, and can neither post nor comment on Facebook for the next 24 hours. And on their web page the Free Press Society writes that Facebook has threatened to close their Facebook page, and just this evening they inform us that they have been banned from posting on their page.
Furthermore, Chairwoman Aia Fog says that she has been blocked for thirty days for writing about Tommy Robinson.
According to Aia Fog the ban doesn’t come directly from Facebook itself, but “from strong political forces that more or less put pressure on social media.”
That explanation sounds very much like Tommy Robinson’s own
That’s why I said it’s good to be seen! Because I have become completely unpersoned from all social media. Even Snapchat, Instagram… and the maddest thing is, I’ve done nothing wrong! They run with these lies, they keep saying that I promote violence against Muslims. Show me where… show me ONE screen-shot that I’ve done.
Peter Münster, Nordic Communications Chief for Facebook. The guy we just saw here, Tommy Robinson, is he so dangerous that merely mentioning his name makes the world a dangerous place?
Well, for starters, the problem isn’t so much mentioning his name, the problem is that he falls under a category that we consider to be hate preacher, that is, people who use their status in the public sphere to organize hate or to encourage violence against a minority.
And we don’t permit that. We don’t permit the sharing of hate speech or racist attacks, but we don’t in general permit people who predominantly have this as a major part of their public work, public profile, to encourage people to something similar, so… it IS a tough sanction.
That is a tough sanction against him, he’s cut off, but what is happening now is that people who just mention Tommy Robinson have their posts removed, get blocked, or threatened to be removed from Facebook. How does that work?
Well… our rules don’t explicitly forbid talking about Tommy Robinson. You are allowed to write that you don’t like him, or that he’s an idiot as was mentioned in the intro, …and then he was blocked. Yes, and that’s another question, but for starters, what you aren’t allowed to do according to our rules is show support, or positively promote, or in other ways give representation to these hate preachers.
What does that mean, to give representation? —Well, that means that if we have a policy that a man like Tommy Robinson is not allowed to have a profile or a page, then of course it doesn’t work if he has a following who are on Facebook who can say “I have spoken with Tommy Robinson today, and he asked me to say to everybody such and such…” (OK) We also have a policy for that
