YOUTUBE has sided with the little people and free speech and has blocked calls to ban right-wing activist, Tommy Robinson after the Labour party called on parent company Google, to ban him.
The firm ignored calls by Labour MP Tom Watson who wanted to have our Tommy taken off YouTube.
Google said the decision to keep Tommy online was because the activist’s content on the video-sharing site was ‘fundamentally different’ from his posts on Facebook, which saw his page of over 1m likes deleted last week.
On Sunday, Tommy took to YouTube and said: “My account has zero community strikes, and zero copyright strikes. I’ve done nothing and said nothing wrong.”
In a letter to Google’s CEO, Sundar Pichai, Tom Watson claimed it is “quite clear from the comments threads on stories documenting this decision, Yaxley-Lennon supporters are transferring over their virulent hate to YouTube”.
He wrote: “I am now writing to implore you as a matter of utmost urgency to follow the lead that has been, belatedly, set by Facebook, and remove forthwith all ‘Tommy Robinson’ and related pages from your YouTube platform.”
Last Tuesday Facebook banned Robinson and dozens of UKIP activists including the founder of this website.
YouTube is now the only form of communication that Tommy can use to speak to his followers who are ordinary working-class people who feel they have been left behind by the Establishment and Labour under Jeremy Corbyn.
Labour’s attack on Tommy came as as UKIP saw a 50% surge in membership, as young and in touch digital activists embraced the purple wave and ditched Labour and the Tories.
In February, Tommy exposed the BBC and their ‘fake news’ tricks, which led many to believe this is why he was dumped from Facebook.
Robinson held a massive rally outside the BBC’s Salford Offices last weekend, which saw him become a more powerful voice than the BBC’s propaganda machine.
Eight thousand working-class Brits rocked up outside the BBC’s Salford HQ at MediaCity.
Across social media, BBC accounts were inundated with comments supporting Robinson, even the BBC’s Panorama account on Facebook was hit with a massive backlash.
The main focus of the event was a blockbuster expose on the BBC’s Panorama documentary strand, that has been working to ‘bring down Tommy Robinson.’ but only brought down trust in the BBC, as evidence was shown that revealed members from Hope Not Hate urging a former Tommy Robinson employee to ‘create incriminating fake texts from Tommy’ to be used in the BBC documentary on the activist.
Despite the BBC’s promise that its long-running Panorama strand would follow the BBC’s “strict editorial guidelines”, Mr Robinson along with the help of former employees exposed Panorama’s journalist John Sweeney, as he attempted to create false narratives and sued racial, homophobic and anti-working class slurs and fleeced taxpayers of their Licence Fee cash with lavish lunches.
Sweeney along with Hope Not Hate allegedly tried to force an ex-employee of Robinson to allege ‘Harvey Weinstein Style’ sexual abuse, all of the fake news was caught by undercover cameras.
Sweeney is also revealed that one of his political heroes was the former head of the IRA terror group, Martin McGuinness.
The BBC said in response to the expose: “The BBC strongly rejects any suggestion that our journalism is ‘faked’ or biased.”
“Any programme we broadcast will adhere to the BBC’s strict editorial guidelines.”
“Some of the footage which has been released was recorded without our knowledge during this investigation and John Sweeney made some offensive and inappropriate remarks, for which he apologises. BBC Panorama’s investigation will continue.”
