YOUTUBE has removed a Tommy Robinson for breaching their “hate speech policy” after he was caged for contempt this week.

The clip – called Tommy Robinson Message from Prison – had been ready for release in the event the Far Right loudmouth was sent to jail on Friday.

But Cassandra Fairbanks, a reporter for the Gateway Pundit, said the video site messaged her saying it was removed because it “violates our hate speech policy”, Mail Online reports.

The short clip shows Robinson speaking to the camera ahead of his sentencing at the Old Bailey for contempt of court.

He says: “So I’m in prison. For the crime of journalism. For exposing Muslim paedophile rapists.

“British journalists don’t seem bothered about this at all. They are puppets of the corporate, globalist media.”

The former-EDL leader continues: “If this happened to vulnerable young Muslim girls, towns and cities all over Europe would become a warzone.”

EDL FOUNDER CAGED

Robinson was jailed for nine months on Friday after he “encouraged mob rule” when he breached a reporting restriction to live-stream a video outside a child grooming trial.

The sentencing sparked a huge protest in London as hundreds of yobs marched towards the Houses of Parliament.

One thug attacked a BBC film crew while other far-right protesters set EU flags on fire and hurled bottles at police as ugly scenes erupted outside court.

Clashing with police, protesters were heard chanting “paedo protectors” and “you’re not English anymore” at officers.

SOCIAL MEDIA BAN

Robinson’s sentence will see him serve about two and a half months in prison as he has already served ten weeks and he will be released on licence halfway through his jail term.

His sentence was made up of six months for the Leeds contempt, plus three months for an earlier contempt committed at Canterbury Crown Court in 2017.

Robinson has 28 days to lodge an appeal.


In March, Facebook and Instagram permanently banned Robinson for posting “in ways that violate our policies around organised hate”.

But YouTube refused to scrap his channel, which has more than 300,000 subscribers, and instead removed videos that went against its hate speech policy.

This includes clips promoting violence or hatred against individuals or groups based on attributes including religion, race, immigration status or nationality.
