Guest finishes the interview by himself after Piers Morgan behaved like a total horses behind!

After the Finsbury Park attack on Sunday, British conservative activist Tommy Robinson tweeted the following:

Which earned the former English Defence League leader an invitation on Good Morning Britain Tuesday morning to discuss his tweet, and his views about Islam, with host Piers Morgan.

Or rather, an invitation to get interrupted and grilled by Morgan while barely getting a word in edgewise.

Morgan’s ‘arguments’ included:

“You’re sounding like a complete lunatic. You’re sounding like a bigoted lunatic. You’re stirring up hatred.”

“You are stirring up hatred, you are abusing people’s religion, you’re abusing their faith and you’re being a complete disgrace.”

When Robinson held up a Koran and called it a “violent and cursed book,” Morgan told him to “show some damn respect for people’s religious beliefs.”

“We’re in this mess because people take Islam, they are terrorists and they abuse the nature of Islam and… perpetrate evil,” Morgan, who in fairness has certainly been critical of Islamic extremism before, said.

“That mosque [Finsbury Park] has been inciting hatred and murder against us. That mosque needs to be shut down,” replied Robinson.

When Morgan called him an “Islamophobe” who conflates “Islamist terrorism with all Muslims,” Robinson responded, “There is no such word as Islamophobia. Islamophobia is an irrational fear. It is not irrational to fear these things.”

To the charge that Robinson was being “inflammatory,” Robinson said that the British people are “desperate for this problem to be solved. I’m trying to explain to you why we’re in the situation we’re in. People see no light at the end of the tunnel. You know nothing about growing up in Luton. You haven’t watched your town decay. I travel this country meeting families whose daughters have been raped.”

Robinson’s premise, one which he has been consistent about and tried to relay to Morgan, is that Islam itself is the problem, and radicals are merely following the religion as laid out in their holy book, the Koran. His contention is that the peaceful Muslims are the ones who actually aren’t “true” to their religion, but by filling one’s country with Muslims one always endures the risk of adherents suddenly deciding to be true to the actual teachings of their own religion.

Since he wasn’t allowed to express his beliefs via the British “mainstream” media, Robinson promised to finish the interview himself with interviews and facts at a later point.

“People are crying out to have a debate, and what he did was shut it down,” Robinson said.

And here is Robinson’s side of the story:

Turns out, the publicity may not have been a bad thing for Robinson and his views.

The British activist had plenty of support:

And finally, Robinson called Morgan out as a hypocrite via Twitter for being critical of another person’s genuinely held religion. Hey, what’s good for the goose…
