Don Trump Jr. warns Americans after arrest of Islam-critic journalist in UK; wake up call heard worldwide

Donald Trump Jr. had a pressing warning for Americans in the wake of an arrest in England of an independent journalist.

UK protesters poured into England’s Downing Street this weekend demanding the release of Tommy Robinson, who was arrested for covering a story on the trial of a child grooming gang. Robinson was transported to jail without a trial and the government banned press coverage of the 35-year old journalist’s status.

Townhall columnist Kurt Schlichter noted how the UK’s Orwellian actions could be echoed here in the U.S.

Trump Jr. reacted to Schlichter’s tweet with a warning not to follow in the footsteps of America’s mother country.

Robinson, whose real name is Stephen Lennon, was arrested Friday while livestreaming a report on the trial of members of an alleged child grooming gang.

The 35-year-old activist and former head of the English Defense League, has long been active against Islam and Islamic migration. Robinson is now serving a prior 13 month suspended sentence for contempt of court after trying to film accused Muslims outside of a court last year.

News of his arrest and the subsequent ban on coverage sent his supporters into action.

Waving banners with #FreeTommy messages, protesters took to Downing Street, at times climbing the gates of the Prime Minister’s home.

England seemed to be stepping into police state territory as a gag order was issued to block media coverage, citing the need to avoid risking the case with prejudice.  Journalists Mike Cernovich and Nick Monroe broke down the alarming scrubbing of Robinson’s articles.

Many on social media slammed the double standards, the bias and the overreach of Robinson’s treatment, echoing Trump Jr. in warning where the actions could lead.
