Denmark: The greatest weekend with Tommy Robinson

A first hand report of Tommy Robinson's weekend in Copenhagen, written by Tania Groth of the Free Press Society from the Ingrid and Maria website, courtesy of Maria.  She has details not just of the Sappho Award presentation but events afterwards. Follow the link and read it all. 

I’ve just had the greatest weekend! The Danish Free Press Society has just had the pleasure of hosting Tommy Robinson, as we had chosen him as a recipient of the Sappho award, the prize we give once a year to a person who shows undaunted courage in the fight for free speech.

On the day of the award ceremony, a rather small group of unwashed, black balaclava and jackboot wearing AntiFa had, predictably, gathered in the courtyard of the Parliament building where we hosted the award – of course hoping to disrupt the proceedings.  They didn’t at all, we barely noticed them as the Danish police were numerous and clearly in control. It was actually rather amusing as the police had them gathered and cornered behind police plastic banner/strips. They stood and shouted a bit in the cold, while we could see them from the windows, standing in the warmth enjoying a glass of champagne and cake. I raised my glass to them – I hope they saw it!

It was a very touching moment when Tommy entered the room, everyone stood up and clapped for quite some time and it was very clear that Tommy was very touched.  I have to admit that I felt rather proud of being a Dane and that the Danish Free Press Society are able to stand in parliament in our fight for Free Speech.  It is extremely unfortunate that so few countries and politicians take this important stand. Marie Krarup, a Danish politician from the Danish People’s Party, started the proceedings with some very nice words about Tommy. It really is great that we have politicians like her, and I truly wish there were more with her integrity and dedication to free speech.

Tommy gave a phenomenal speech that was focused on showing how the mainstream media, MSM, lies and distorts the truth. It truly is shocking, and I am pretty sure that there were many present who did not know just how extreme the extent of the MSM’s manipulations and lies about him are. Ironically he had been invited onto the Danish news show Deadline after the awards, and the Danish interviewer Steen Nørskov did exactly what Tommy had just hours ago talked about in his speech – in other words, he launched into a very obvious attempt at character assassination, but luckily Tommy is far too sharp to let a person like that get the better of him.

He gave as good as he got and did not let himself be trampled. On the contrary! It was an admirable performance.  In fact, the only person in the room that came off as hateful was the interviewer himself! Unfortunately that same interviewer also, in the next segment mounted an unprecedented and very unpleasant attack on the Free Press Society’s President Aia Fog by asking her questions about a few of Tommy’s earlier encounters with the law, of course attempting to paint Tommy as a criminal and why would we give an award to such a person.

She was visibly and understandably uncomfortable, but she stood her ground and told the interviewer that we were giving the award to Tommy not because of his earlier problems with the law, but for his courage regarding freedom of speech. That said the attack on her really was repellent. Tommy was present in the wings during her interview and could see what was going on. Despite not being able to understand Danish, he confronted the interviewer afterwards regarding the interview with Aia, and secretly recorded the exchange which he will himself publish.  The journalist will no doubt be unhappy when he does. I say: Good, any discomfort will be very well deserved!

The following day Tommy had five interviews with various publications. Tommy is very wise to also record these interviews himself which of course makes it difficult for the journalist to lie afterwards, or if they do then Tommy has evidence of the facts.

He IS the very spirit of Britain, and the picture of the English bulldog. More like him please! May God bless this British “Braveheart” and keep him safe.

Tania Groth, Board member of the Danish Free Press Society

Day and night, Tommy is regularly hounded by the police and smeared by the media for what he believes in: freedom and dignity for all. he has been fitted up with crimes and sent to prison on charges that no other court in the world would even look at. Tommy Robinson is the Gandhi of modern-day Britain.
