PLAYING THE MAN, NOT THE BALL

. The headline is quite innocuous, isn’t it? “Man remanded on ATM theft charges” It’s on the BBC Northern Ireland news portal. Interestingly though” the man” concerned is a Romanian immigrant also accused of attempted theft and having a class C drug. He is also wanted by the gardai in Dublin with the grand total of 14 outstanding warrants for his arrest. ATM theft in Dublin appears to be overwhelmingly carried out by Romanian criminals and clearly in this new era of no borders, these entrepreneurs have moved North of the border to share their skills with us and enhance our economy. I think the BBC headline on this story plays down this important aspect to the news and I am sure that with its multi-culti uber alles agenda the BBC would not seek to overly stress the crime wave that the EU has brought us.

    The BBC does not recognize a sovereign Britain. All are welcome.
    You see, liberals love an underclass that they can pander to, and give the DOLE to. Spending your money is what liberals do. Then they tell those that they gave your money to, that you are greedy, evil and capitalist.
    They create a permanent sub-culture of government dependance and make themselves and untidy voting base.
    With your money. The BBC spends your money. Always having plenty of someone else’s money becomes the norm.
    Shouldn’t everyone have someone else’s money/country etc etc etc?

    I was robbed by 3 Romanians in Leicester Square three years ago.

    It was a six year old, and a “nine” year old, organized and directed by their “Fagin” like Big Issue selling “mother.”

    Sitting outside at the Moon Over The Water pub, first clocked by a woman hawking the Big Issue as she noted my mobile phone on the table.

    Five minutes later the kids (no speaky de English) sidle over with sign begging for money.

    While the “9” year old distracted me the younger one lifted the phone.

    The pub manager and I chased the kids down though Leicester Square and caught the older one with the phone. We dragged him back to the pub (no one batted an eyelid by the way) and called the police.

    Four hours later I was still in the cop shop, as the translator (and part-time BBC employee) embarrassedly explained how that once the kid claimed be was under 10, the police could do nothing.

    I’m sure this uneducated, ferral kid is going to fit in nicely into the brave new Britain with his Big Issue selling dole cheating, theiving mother leading the way.

    Liberalism’s beating heart of darkness:

    “How did I get into the world? Why was I not asked about it and why was I not informed of the rules and regulations but just thrust into the ranks as if I had been bought by a peddling shanghaier of human beings? How did I get involved in this big enterprise called actuality? Why should I be involved? Isn’t it a matter of choice? And if I am compelled to be involved, where is the manager—I have something to say about this. Is there no manager? To whom shall I make my complaint?”

    That’s how liberals secretly feel, it is their primordial trauma. It is why they resist:

    A. Law and order
    B. Ownership
    C. Winning and Losing

    For Liberals, life if just a demented spastic meat puppet dance. They want to be ‘liberated’ from everything.

    The BBC wants everyone to think happy thoughts about “migrant workers”, as if it were part of the natural order of things, normal seasonal human behavior.

    The idea is to recall those halcyon days when droves of working class Londoners and others would migrate down to Sussex and Kent for the hop harvest.

    Why, it’s the same thing! Or not.

    Speaking of which, a friend of mine from that area says it should still be possible to sign up for a two week stint working for one of the hop farms in August. Does anyone know if this is so?

    That’s because immigrant implies someone crossing national boundaries coming stay permanently (ie an invader), it has negative connotations. But the BBC doesn’t recognise Britain’s national boundaries or sovereignty, as far as they are concerned it is just internal migration in the same way that someone moving from Manchester to Liverpool could be considered an internal migrant. Also, migrant implies someone just passing through and not staying permanently. Leftoids seek to ease the nations concerns about immigration by pretending that they are all going to go home. Despite that fact that the official stats show that the overwhelming majority of population growth in Britain will be caused by immigration (and hence immigrants/settlers/colonisers/invaders staying permanently not migrants).

    only a childish, naieve, idiotic, liberal could confuse having your phone stolen behind your back by a little kid, with being mugged.

    On the Romanians, i think the figure is about 98% caspoint scams is romanian. Im guessing its a technique of the Romanian Mafia.
    Anyway put that in your pipe and smole it, equality police.

    Im sure its really all to do with institutional racism in the police though, right?

    David, it’s interesting that you are accusing the BBC of playing this down I assume not to make the whole EU project look bad.

    Well, the thing is I cannot find any reference to this crime on any other news website at all. Assuming this indeed the case, if the BBC didn’t mention that he was Romanian then I don’t think you would have known that he was Romanian.

    So the fact that you know a Romanian man committed these crimes would seem to be exlusively down to the efforts of the BBC. If they hadn’t have published this – this crime would not have been reported.

    Given that, it seems a little strange to say that the BBC is playing this down.

    Just as a general comment, I don’t follow Romanian ATM crime reporting but a brief Google search seems to reveal that the BBC covers this at least as well as other UK news organisations.

    Also, if you are seriously suggesting that the BBC wish to bury bad news about EU (im)migaration then I really don’t think that there is any evidence to back that up. In fact, an “independent” report states “the BBC’s coverage of enlargement focused too much on fears of mass
    migration.”

    You wonder how they are going to keep a lid on EU criminal migration. France and Spain have a massive problem with Romanian crime – every day news reports of theft and assaults involving Romanians. If you are a criminal, it makes sense to migrate to countries where your crime pays better.

    Nicolae Ceausesc’s legacy, like that of Enver Hoxha’s Albania, was a natural criminal factory. Under communism that was the only other way (apart from joining the party elite) to get rich.

    I assume you can’t deport someone from within the EU, nor can you refuse entry. This is just the beginning.

    ACPO have done a study on this showing that EU immigrants are, on average, no more likely to commit a crime than the UK population in general.

    By contrast, Muslims, who account for just over 2% of the population also account for >12% of the prison population. So if you’re looking at which group to focus your crime reduction energies on, it would make much more sense to target them than go about sounding off about non-existent crime-waves from the EU.

    I was pickpocketed in Prague by Romanians last year, fortunately only a small amount of cash and credit card. When I went to the police station I was sent to an office which is SOLELY there to deal with robberies by Romanians (and Bulgarians). I was told I’d have to wait about 3 hours if I wanted it to be dealt with officially – I didn’t bother, just cancelled the card. It’s a BIG problem there apparently – doncha love the EU “no borders”?

    By “Romanian” they mean Gypsy.

    There was a big riot in Milan after an attempted child-snatching. And quite rightly too, for force ust be employed to defend one’s personal sovereignty; if the governments insist on forcing undesirable immigrants on Italy and elsewhere then the social contract is broken and the government must be overthrown.

    Well the translator who came to the cop shop to question the “Romanian kids” who robbed me, was heartily and genuinely ashamed that they hailed from his country.

    He kept assuring me they were “gypos.”

    Of course, had the policeman used that word, he would have faced severe discipline.

    Anyone interested in Gypsy culture should read the chapters on it in Joseph Mitchell’s “Up in the Old Hotel”, a collection of articles he wrote for the New Yorker in the 40’s and 50’s. He spent a lot of time talking to an NYC detective whose job it was to deal with the gypo crime menace. This guy knew everything about their culture, their traditions and language.

    Apparently, gypos have a legend that when Jesus was being taken to be crucified, a gypsy stole the nails they were going to use to nail him up and although they just got more nails and crucified him anyway, Jesus appreciated his efforts and told the gypo that from that day forth his people would have a God-given license to steal.

    The detective told Mitchell that this legend has been used by gypsies for centuries as a moral excuse to devote their lives to thievery.

    And they are, after all, professional thieves.

    It looks like there are many variations of this Gypsy legend…here’s one from a blog written by a gypsy.

    http://peshasgypsyblog.blogspot.com/2007/02/legend-of-nails-for-cross-of-jesus-la.html

    What a hilarious woman this gypo blogger is. The title banner of the blog reads:

    I have set up this blog to promote a positive image of my people and hopefully in turn this will lead to understanding and tolerance

    And then of course she goes on to outline how:

    “God bestowed upon the Gypsy people for all time the right to steal…

    As if she really thinks that this is going to do wonders to her cause of understanding and tolerance. Further in her explanation of the legend:

    “it is only when the nails are found that the persecution of the Gypsies will end..

    Correct me if I’m wrong but I would have thought that they have more chance of the “persecution” ending if they simply stopped stealing people’s stuff.

    Don`t forget Rocker Radio 6pm Sunday nights on local BBC stations. The show for Romanies and other travellers. Their culture, politics, problems etc.
    The BBC do cover affairs about Gypsies (written, edited and narrated by Gypsies).
