Daily Mail Continues To Incite Racial Hatred Toward Gypsy & Travelling Families




The Daily Mail continues to incite racial hatred toward Gypsy and Travelling families…..

It is hard to believe that in a modern Britain Paul Dacre and the rabid pack of racist hate hungry rabble that he employs, can conduct unabaited a campaign that is designed to incite racial hatred against UK’s oldest ethnic minority..The Romany Gypies..and other groups of Travelling peoples.

It will take a little time, but please read through the links on this posting, you will note as you read that Surrey Police did make it clear that the article about the Helicopter was untrue, a similar one appeared in the Sun, they did print a retraction, not so the Daily Mail. Printing lies and deliberately misleading their readership is all in a days work for Dacre and his cronnies.

These Articles have been reported to the Police as “hate crimes” and have been logged, I will let you all know if we get a positive out come.
A complaint has also been lodged with The Press Complaints Commission

After discussing this matter with the Police on more than one occasion, the opinion is that the more unscrupulous Editors who allow this sort of article to go to press do so in the knowledge that provided it is worded in such a way that it is not aimed at any one individual then they will be exempt from any redress from the Press Complaints Commission

In point of fact the damage done by aiming the hostility toward the community as a whole is by far more damaging, as it criminalizes us as a people; it creates a picture of an asocial race.

In the 1940’s Adolph Hitler labeled the Gypsy people as asocial and used it as an excuse for ethnic cleansing. Today Newspaper Editors are using the same excuse to persecute our people. It’s far more subtle; they don’t round us up and kill us in our tens of thousands. They print these damaging articles that marginalize our people even more. They vilify us and create fear and hate against us. As a result our children get persecuted and bullied in school, families cannot get planning permission because people believe the stories and don’t want Gypsy people for neighbours. In order to live in peace and have their children educated and access medical services people deny their culture. This amounts to ethnic cleansing by media.

.

The article below by the Daily Mails Richard Littlejohn is grossly insulting and inflammatory leading the reader to believe that all Gypsy and Travelling people are thieves and benefit fraudsters.

This next one gives the impression that our community is not worthy of Lottery funding and that Gypsy people are not hardworking people who play by the rules and pay their taxes

There is no evidence that the family named in this article are in fact a Gypsy family

Response from Surrey Police

Dear Shay,

Surrey Police did not state that the offence had been committed by any particular group, in fact we stated the offenders were unknown. Here is a copy of our media response:

"Damage was caused to the Surrey Police helicopter during an incident at its base at Fairoaks Airport, Chobham just before 10pm on Thursday 30 April. Five windows were smashed by unknown offenders and the value of the damage is being determined. The incident is part of an ongoing investigation and security measures are being reviewed as part of this. Surrey Police is working with the maintenance contractor to ensure the aircraft is back on line as soon as possible. We continue to have access to air support through agreements with surrounding Forces."

Following the article in The Sun on 14 May, we have been in contact with the 'Friends, Families and Travellers' action group and the accuracy of the article was challenged. This led to a correction being published in The Sun:

"CHOPPER ATTACK: Surrey Police have not blamed gipsies for an attack on their force helicopter, no staff in their operations room were threatened by gipsies and no gipsy site was being targeted for a raid, as we reported on May 14 We apologise for the mistakes and are happy to set the record straight."

So far no-one has been arrested in connection with the incident and, even if they had, their ethnicity is not a detail we would comment on.

Regards,

Nick

Thanks for all your work in keeping us informed on this. Fortunately, neo-nazi cretins have about as much credibility as a 1-year-old's analysis of the stock market. Still important to be informed of their activities though.

This was an interesting paragraph to me "Yet the travellers are indulged by the authorities, while law-abiding, taxpaying local householders who voice their complaints are routinely threatened with prosecution for 'racism'."

Well it certainly sounds like Richard Little John is racist, he contradicts himself. If you don't want to be accused of being racist, then stop saying racist things. And it sounds like to me that the majority of people are intolerant towards the Romany people.

Of course I live in America, but we have our share of Racial problems also. But for the press to be allowed to print such hateful things is ridiculous and shouldn't be tolerated by the powers to be.
