Man on trial for “stirring up racial hatred” for criticizing Muslim rape gangs
British authorities covered up Muslim rape gang activity for decades for fear of being called “racist,”and now they’re persecuting Billy Charlton for daring to call them out about what they did. Britain is being ruled by a traitor class.
“Billy Charlton trial: Lawyers begin making closing speeches to the jury,’” Sunderland Echo, December 17, 2018:
Lawyers in the trial of a campaigner accused of stirring up hatred during city protests have started making closing speeches to the jury.
William Charlton, known as Billy, is accused of targeting “immigrants, Asians, black people and police” during a series of public rallies in Sunderland and causing a rise in racial crime and disorder in the city.
Prosecutors claim he hid his “racist agenda” under a “cloak of respectability” that he wanted to protect women and children from attacks.
The 54-year-old, of no fixed address, denies six charges of stirring up racial hatred and is being tried by a jury at Newcastle Crown Court.
Charlton has told the court his references to “immigrants” during his city centre speeches referred to “criminal immigrants” and was not intended as a racial slur or insult to anyone.
He has denied outright being that he is a racist and told jurors: “I would never racially abuse anybody.”
Charlton has said communities are “living in fear” and there have been police “cover ups” about what has gone on in the city….
“Billy Charlton trial: Protester says comparing Grenfell Tower fire tragedy to events in Sunderland was a ‘bad analogy,'” Sunderland Echo, December 13, 2018:
A protester accused of stirring up racial hatred has admitted comparing the Grenfell fire tragedy to what was happening in his home city was a “bad analogy”.
William Charlton, known as Billy, is accused of targeting “immigrants, Asians, black people and police” during a series of public speeches in Sunderland and causing a rise in racial crime and disorder in the city….
“If the police nipped our problems in the bud in Sunderland, then they wouldn’t have had us on the streets….
Charlton told jurors his references to police during speeches were because he believed forces should share more information about reported crimes or incidents, so that the public can protect themselves.
He said: “They should be putting it out, not covering it up.”
Charlton said the marches in Sunderland started after a woman claimed she had been attacked by foreign men. He told the court: “The only thing I want is peaceful demonstration, the only thing I want is to get the word out there that people are attacking women in Sunderland, drugging their drinks.
“All I’m trying to do is get that message across.”
Charlton told jurors he had seen photographs of the woman after she claimed she was attacked. He told the court: “She was black and blue from neck to ankles, that doesn’t happen by going to bed consensually.
“This woman was black and blue, front to back and top to bottom. It was visibly upsetting.”
Charlton said he had instructed those wishing to participate in marches not to wear or carry any offensive flags or wear clothing that could be seen as right-wing or offensive as he did not want that to become a “sideshow” from the real aims of protecting the Sunderland community.
Charlton said his references to rapist immigrants during speeches referred to “unvetted” criminals, and “bad apples”, who went on to carry out attacks, not any race or religion as a whole.
He told jurors: “My choice of words might not be the best choice of words but I am speaking as a man off the street, I’m not a politician. That is the way I feel.
“People try and expand on the words I have used but those words are specifically about the people who commit offences.
“I don’t care what people say, I am not a racist.
“It is not meant in any other way.
“I’m meaning specifically people raping, drugging and abusing the people of Sunderland.”
Charlton told jurors he left the campaign that sparked the marches after organisations such as Britain First were rumoured to have got involved and that threats were made towards him as a result….
“Billy Charlton trial: Sunderland protester branded David Cameron ‘spineless’ in speech, court told,” Sunderland Echo, December 7, 2018:
Jurors in the trial of a protester accused of stirring up racial hatred have watched video footage of his city centre speeches.
Prosecutors claim William Charlton’s public protest talks spread hatred against “immigrants, Asians, black people and the police” and caused a rise in a city’s racial crime and disorder….
Newcastle Crown Court heard the 53-year-old, who is known to friends and supporters as “Billy”, spoke along with Tommy Robinson at one of the organised protest events, where a woman had to be “escorted away for her own safety” for carrying a placard that said “rape does not have a race”.
Charlton, of no fixed address, denies six offences of stirring up racial hatred and is being tried by a jury.
On the fourth day of the trial, jurors have viewed a speech made by Charlton, which Tommy Robinson attended and who can be seen on the video.
During the talk, last June, Charlton said: “This will never be Rotherham, it will never be Rochdale, this is Sunderland.”
The city centre crowd clapped and cheered and chanted their demands for “justice”.
Charlton branded David Cameron a “spineless ******” for his immigration policies.
He also told the crowd: “It’s about those people they’re allowing in. “We don’t put people in our communities that are going to attack our children.”
He added: “This is about us, about our city and our town, this is ours, ours.
“I am proud to be a mackem, proud to be from Sunderland.”
Charlton spoke about some people being punished, while others get “safe houses”.
He added: “Get them off our kids, get them off our streets, get them out of Sunderland.”…
