**Warning for harsh language.
While the reporters on the receiving end of this verbal beat down will unlikely learn anything, they most certainly won’t forget it.
In the aftermath of yet another terrorist attack in Europe at the hands of an Islamic extremist, this time in London, where five people were killed, including the assailant, and another 40 injured, former English Defence League leader Tommy Robinson went on a truth-filled rant at the scene of the carnage.
Robinson disturbed liberal sensibilities in angrily stating that radical Islam is at war with the West.
“This is the reality,” he said. “The reality is these people are waging war on us.
“This has been going on for 1,400 years and while it’s going on the police leaders and the political leaders want to invite more,” Robinson said.
“The blood is on the hands of people like you and the Left,” senior editor at The New Briton, Caolan Robertson, told the media.
He really went off on the press when he accused one of them of laughing while he was having his say.
“Is this really time to laugh? There’s a f**king terrorist attack!” he yelled while pointing at the scene where the attack just took place.
God Bless people like @TRobinsonNewEra who expose Islam and the left that enables them!

“I don’t understand people who are surprised by this,” Robinson said. “We have over 3,000 Muslims who are monitored 24 hours a day 7 days a week at a cost of 9 billion [pounds] a year.”
“We’re following them, waiting for them to do this.”
“Driving your car like this man has done is exactly what the ‘Inspire’ magazine, which is Al Qaeda’s magazine, which was downloaded by 50,000 British Muslims last year… 50,000 British Muslims downloaded a terrorist manual,” he insisted.
“This happened because you let it happen,” Robinson told the press, holding them and the left-wing ideology they promote at least partly accountable.
The full rant can be seen here:
As for the tremendous backlash that came his way, let’s just say Robinson wasn’t swayed:
Here’s a brief sampling of the criticism directed at Robinson for his harsh offering of reality, to include the suggestion that he shouldn’t raise his voice simply because five of his countrymen lie dead in the street:

Tommy Robinson actually went down to the scene to start yelling. Unbelievable

Far-right figures like Tommy Robinson are vile opportunists: using victims of today's attack to spread their anti-Muslim message.

@TRobinsonNewEra @TStarLDN maybe it’s because of you the terror attack started. ???.

But he also had his share of support, as seen here:
@TRobinsonNewEra Right. We must speak extra softly when under attack lest we – heaven forbid! – offend our attackers or “inflame tensions”

@TRobinsonNewEra You spoke simple facts as you always have, facts that the left are too afraid to comprehend, they’ll have to one day!
