British patriot Tommy Robinson led the May 6 #DayForFreedom speech rally in London at which he announced he’s “taking Twitter to court to prove facts are now treated as hate.”
Just so we've got some idea of the problem, even Twitter has #DayForFreedom trending at number 1. The BBC on the other hand, not a sausage. How can the public-funded broadcaster. be so blatantly partisan? #censorship #iamtommy pic.twitter.com/7ZX8SQUcyP

At the rally Breitbart London editor-in-chief Raheem Kassam introduced Robinson and gave brief remarks, including thanking the police officers on duty, Antifa activists and mainstream media who were at the event.
“The people of this country have been silenced for twenty to thirty years with the tag of ‘racist.’ They have managed to silence people so they’re too scared to speak up when they see things that are wrong.
“They’re too scared to tell the truth and identify problems with an ideology and a religion in our country, because they’re worried about being called ‘racist’.
“[The establishment] now realise that tag is dead. No-one cares anymore about being labelled as a ‘racist’. So they’ve now introduced their new term: ‘hate speech’. What is ‘hate speech’?”
Robinson told the story of a 16-year-old British citizen who went to Speakers’ Corner in the British Isles to debate the Islamic street preacher Ali Daweh— and afterwards the boy, not the Islamist was visited by the U.K.’s counter-terrorism division.
The boy stated the fact about Islam and as a result counter-terrorism officials from the Prevent strategy came to his home. Robinson said, “His mother was in pieces: crying, scared, worried. The justification the police give for coming and visiting him … is they didn’t like his opinions on Islam.”
Robinson also pointed to the censorship tactics used by social media giant Twitter, which removed him from its platform for pointing out the demographics of child grooming gangs– that are overwhelmingly Islamic– and how they are following the instructions of the Qur’an.
The British government told Twitter to close 10,000 accounts “for hate”, Robinson claimed, compared to 140 accounts that were closed for terrorism.
The Islamic terrorist groups, Hamas, Hezbollah, and others are still actively operating on Twitter. Instead, Twitter’s focus appears to be “silencing and stopping people like me.”
“Where we’re heading, Facebook, YouTube, will all remove our views,” he said.
He also pointed to a video he watched of the former government minister Yvette Cooper MP, a senior Labour politician, who pressured YouTube to prevent Robinson’s Youtube videos from being promoted.
“This is Government interference with private companies to remove certain people’s views, which is fascism,”Breitbart News London reported.
Taking Twitter to court won’t restore his Twitter account, Robinson said, but he hopes to prove that “‘facts’ are now seen as ‘hate’, and the Government is pushing it’s agenda with private companies.”
