English Defense League Leader Refused Entry to US - Update: FBI Searched EDL’s Rooms

Wingnuts • Views: 4,553

One of the English Defense League thugs who was planning to attend Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer’s hate rally last weekend was refused entry into the US.

I’ve picked up a rumour this morning that EDL leader ‘Tommy Robinson’ has been refused entry into the United States where he was due to attend an anti-Islam rally at Ground Zero in New York. Robinson was travelling with a number of other EDL leaders when he was turned away at the Immigration desk for apparent entry form irregularities. He was taken into custody and almost immediately put on a plane back to London. His fellow EDL members were allowed to go through.

The name “Tommy Robinson” is in quotes above because this guy is apparently hiding his real identity — which might explain why he was taken into custody and returned to the UK.

Here’s more information about “Tommy Robinson.”

UPDATE at 9/13/10 10:50:21 am:

And in another revealing bit of news, the EDL skinheads who did manage to make it into the US had a close encounter with the FBI.

It’s been a disastrous weekend all round for the English Defence League, who had promised it would be so momentous for their rapidly declining movement.

First, leader ‘Tommy Robinson’ was ejected from the USA, citing paperwork issues; we suspect the real story is more likely to be linked to his criminal record. Then, the ‘28,000 members’ the EDL brag about failed to materialise at the myriad 9/11 events they have tried to co-ordinate, managing to amass about 400 demonstrators in total, UK-wide, including those who turned out for an inpromptu ‘flash demo’ in Oldham.

Yesterday’s sojourn into Nuneaton to disrupt a British Army homecoming parade descended into farce when EDL members ventured into a popular Asian community in the city chanting racist sings, and were forced to hide in the Crew public house, as crowds of disgusted locals – Muslim and non-Muslim – turned out to confront them. You can view some excellent video footage from Nyquist Media here. …

This morning news reaches us that those who DID manage to make it into the USA have been swooped on in their hotel rooms by FBI agents, and had their belongings extensively searched; among them was prominent and well known thug, Ronnie Burgess.
