Cassandra Fairbanks, Gateway Pundit, May 25, 2018

Articles about the arrest and subsequent imprisonment of independent journalist and activist Tommy Robinson are being rapidly scrubbed from the internet after the British government put restrictions in place banning any reporting on the matter.


Articles from the Daily Record, Birmingham Live, The Mirror, RT and even Breitbart News were all taken offline in the hours following his detention.

Author and journalist Mike Cernovich and independent researcher and journalist Nick Monroe kept tabs on the disappearing articles.

Monroe has also been archiving the deleted stories.

UPDATE: Breitbart forced to take down story about Tommy Robinson’s arrest.


UPDATE 2: Mirror’s article on Tommy Robinson’s arrest is ALSO GONE.


UPDATE 3: Birmingham Live’s article on Tommy Robinson arrest was REMOVED.


Update 4: Russia Today (RT) article on Tommy Robinson arrest is GONE.


According to UK independent reporter Caolan Robertson, Robinson was arrested outside the Leeds Crown Court on Friday morning as he was covering the trial of ten men for offenses including child rape, trafficking, and supply of Class A drugs to children.

The independent journalist was caught on video telling the arresting officers {snip} “You know when you do this, more people are going to watch this now than ever,” he adds.

Robinson is heavily focused on Islamic extremism and has had several run-ins with law enforcement over his live streaming. His suspended sentence stems from an arrest last year for contempt of court after trying to film Muslims who had been accused of pedophilia outside a court in Canterbury.

The trial he was attempting to cover was that of Tamin Rahani, 37, Shershah Muslimyar, 20, Rafiullah Hamidy, 24, and an unnamed teenager who are all charged with three counts of raping a teenager.
