Did you know that the US has an Ambassador-at-large for International Freedom? They do, and Donald Trump appointed Sam Brownback, a former Governor of Kansas to that role earlier this year. Not only that, he’s warning the UK Government to treat Tommy Robinson fairly.
LONDON (Reuters) – Sam Brownback, the U.S. Ambassador for International Religious Freedom, complained to the British ambassador in Washington D.C. about the treatment of an English right-wing activist. He is in jail for disrupting a trial, according to three sources familiar with the discussion.
Brownback raised the case of the activist known as Tommy Robinson. This was in a June meeting with Sir Kim Darroch, Britain’s Ambassador to the United States. According to a British official and two sources close to the organizers of a pro-Robinson demonstration planned for London on Saturday.
But this is the paragraph that is absolutely unbelievable:
Reuters was unable to determine why the top U.S. official responsible for defending religious freedom would try to intervene with the British government on behalf of an activist who has expressed anti-Islamic views.
