Today I am proud to be British again. Thank you Tommy Robinson and all who support him. – St. John Goldfingle, @StGoldfingle
There’s an old saying that only two things worth a damn have ever come about because of the British Empire: The Beatles and the United States of America.
I realize that I may be a bit jingoistic, me being a Yankee Doodle Dandy and all. But all ribbing aside, what’s happening in the country that gave us the Magna Carta certainly gives pause to every freedom-loving man, woman and child.
As it turns out, the British government has just detained (and pending deportation) Generation Identity’s Martin Sellner.
His crime? Writing a speech that was suppose to be delivered by PEGIDA founder Lutz Bachmann at Speakers’ Corner in London’s Hyde Park where anyone and everyone is suppose to have the right to speak their piece.
By the way, Bachmann was also detained and pending deportation for having a copy of Sellner’s speech, which was discovered when British customs authorities searched his luggage. Is it just me, or does this sound a bit like what use to happen when anyone illegally brought a copy of the Holy Bible into the ex-Soviet Union?
In spite of the British government branding the political group as far-right wing, the truth of the matter certainly appears to be more of a case of political correctness run wild.
As the organization’s official website states;
We are a non-violent youth movement that aims to highlight the need for open and honest public debate about immigration policies, identity and the future of our islands [Britain and Ireland] and of Europe.
We aim to preserve the ethnocultural identity of Europe through peaceful activism, political education, and community & cultural activities.
- Stop the Islamisation of Europe
- Against globalization
- Stop and reverse the Great Replacement
But back to Sellner having his speech blocked by the Thought Police; enter Tommy Robinson.
The well known conservative activist managed to attain of copy of the speech, then promptly delivered such in its entirety at Speakers’ Corner.
They are dealing with many of the same problems we face here in the USA. Let’s support them to ensure free speech will always prevail. 🇺🇸🇬🇧pic.twitter.com/UrwoMfmOQo

Just a touch of Sellner’s rousing call to patriotism;
I was invited by UKIP to present my movement at an event last Autumn. I represent Generation Identity — a patriotic European youth movement that is raising awareness about mass immigration and Islamisation.
Far-left people call us right-wing, people who want to shut free speech down call us ‘fascist’, and folks who hate their own culture call us ‘racist’.
In reality, we are just a group of young patriots fed up with the system, the mainstream press and lying politicians. We use peaceful activism to make our voices heard, and contrary to our friends on the radical left, who are probably swarming you right now, we never wear masks.
