For some inexplicable reason Caolan Robertson, an Irish-born immigrant in Britain who has spent the last few years propagandising against non-white, non-Christian immigrants in his adopted country, has been given a platform by Sky News in London to repackage himself as a repentant former member of the British alt-right movement. A claim which eventually falls apart under some mild questioning by the presenter, Niall Paterson. Don’t be fooled by Robertson’s attempt to soften the edges of his online persona. In recent months we have seen several figures in the populist-right in the United Kingdom and the United States adopt similar tactics to gain access to mainstream media, dissociating themselves from explicit racists while remaining faithful to their overarching cause. This is the same path that the far-right troublemaker turned UKIP activist Tommy Robinson followed some years ago in a strategy initially aided by the gullibility – or culpability – of the press in the UK.
