Manchester has laid claim to being the birthplace of many social and political movements which have changed the world as we know it – movements such as Marxism, Vegetarianism and Women’s Suffrage.
The City is a hotbed of ideas and discussion and on Sunday we witnessed something quite remarkable. Tommy Robinson came to town and instead of the door being shut in his face, it was booted open by the silent majority, the put upon working class who see Tommy as one of them. Mainly because he is.
There is no larger political or social demographic in this country than the working classes and right now he has their attention, as the liberal elite are so far up their own backsides that they may as well speak Klingon.
Andy Burnham the Manchester Mayor typified this sneering demeanour when he labelled everyone on that march as being part of the far right. Let that sink in as he labelled grannies and mothers with their children protesting against Islamic Terrorism as being worthy of contempt.
This is why Tommy was welcomed; the political elite in this country are once again refusing to listen to those who suffer the failures of their policies, as it’s the working class communities of this country who have had to bear the brunt of their refusal to tackle problems within the Muslim community. Andy Burnham would rather court votes from that community who vote en bloc than challenge behaviours and practices which put working class kids in the line of fire.
Poem by David Winder
No wonder Tommy was given such a reception and it’s a reception which will provide a watershed moment in British political history, as this was the moment where for many, myself included we actually sat up and listened to him speak rather than just dismissed what he said based on what we were told.
This movement will now gather pace as more and more normal, ordinary working class people will feel emboldened by the support shown to Tommy in Manchester on Sunday.
Where this will end who knows, but I can happily say that I witnessed the birth of a new social movement in Manchester yesterday as I witnessed the birth of #Tommyism and it’s a movement for finally cutting through the nonsense of political correctness and social Marxist thought control.
He has the attention of the working classes now and they are behind him, so let’s do this and let’s tear down this straitjacket of control which has been put in place to keep people frightened to speak out even though it threatens you and your families.
Enough is enough so let’s see where this #Tommyism takes us, as quite frankly anywhere is better than where the liberal elite have led us.
