Xenophobic Backlash Against Polish School in London

I was shocked, yet sadly not surprised, to read just now on Yahoo.news that since the Brexit vote, there has been racist graffiti scrawled on the walls of several Polish institutions in Greater London!

Is this verifiable, because it sounds horrid.

The graffiti on the Polish Centre in Hammersmith doesn't look like it was xenophobic or even written by a Brit. That and any other incident is being dealt with by the police.

One nationalist loon was posting offensive leaflets through people's doors. With his fingerprints on.

There, you see?! Such wasn't really made clear in Yahoo News. Glad I checked:-)
Many thanks, mate!

No british person writes F like that and if you are graffiti and it is hate words then there is no way you are taking time to write it so neatly like it was.

they wrote it themselves

Sounds like a teenager did it - there's a youth organisation called OMP that meets in the same building. Given that the message said "f*ck you OMP" it is too much of a coincidence.

Graffiti artists are all about commuting their feelings and believes. It can be cryptic to communicate with one another or more clear for the wider public to see and understand their message. So absolutely they would take the time to write something out neatly in graffiti style.

And yes, the average Brit who struggles with joined-up writing would never even attempt drawing the letter F with flourishes. However, graffiti taggers would incorporate this for personal taste and uniqueness. And it is very likely that they would take the time to study or take inspiration from calligraphy available online or at hand.

Just compare the anti-Polish graffiti smeared at POSK with the other following examples of British calligraphy particularly the letter F:





there's a youth organisation called OMP that meets in the same building.

LOL!

Yesterday you said OMP was a conservative think tank in Krakow which most people never heard of.

Today it is a youth group inside the same premises as POSK! And the POSK chairwoman has been giving interviews and never even put two and two together. Not even the British police, politicians and media could figure out your latest bit of evidence. Have you contacted any of the aforementioned with your tip or are you going to keep guessing?

Here is a list of youth groups in Hammersmith:

Nothing even close to the initials OMP.

there is ONP if you leave an O out. But only a local would know if the slang shorter it for that neighborhood.
Is it a Polish youth group or a distressed neighborhood group that might have some gangbangers? (does UK even have gang bangers carving territory for drugs?)

And why isn't this added to the other thread discussing this?

Guys, read the comments at the bottom of this Daily Fail article and you will understand how many of the Brexiters tick...

"Britain must hold a second referendum, says Poland as leader of country's ruling party warns EU must 'radically change'"

One more evidence that vast majority of English are idiots, apparently 99% of these... people didn't even read 1 line of the actual article.

Looks like the media have now picked up on the fact that the graffiti is highly suspicious.

graffiti is highly suspicious.

Get a life muppet, there's a 1000 other cases of English Polonophobia than that crap and you, supposed warrior for tolerance are doing nothing else than cover it up.
jon357 63 | 14,254

cover it up

Looks like there's nothing to cover up here. And as I say, the media have now picked up on the fact that it doesn't appear to be anti-Polish at all.

Mmm fascinating... btw what about that black criminal that got shot in Warsaw several years ago ? I remember you were crazy about that being "Polish racism" and was like "premising" that cop who shot the criminal will end up in prison... did he ?
jon357 63 | 14,254

got shot in Warsaw

That is relevant how?

Anyway, let's wait for the investigation into the graffiti to be concluded.

It just shows you are an anti-white racist.

the media have now picked up on the fact that it doesn't appear to be anti-Polish at all.

And you conveniently provide no sources for this claim.

But do a search for the term One Million Poles in Britain and you will find plenty of news articles come up with this being the estimate.

So any fellow British nationalist of yours would express anti-Polish sentiment with the phrase "F*UCK YOU OMP" in true graffiti tagger style using all capital letters and do so on a visible Polish entity like POSK.

One Million Poles

true graffiti tagger style

That truly is clutching at straws...

Not at all and much more likely that your wild flip flopping guesswork of it being one moment the initials for a think tank in Krakow to suddenly a youth group in Hammersmith.
jon357 63 | 14,254

Looks like you didn't get it, did you. It's also the initials of another Polish organisation too.

Anyway, the media have picked up on it and the police investigation is ongoing.
Bieganski 17 | 901

And of course you provide no further information.

Anyway, the media have picked up on it

Again no sources other than yourself.

I guess "F*ck you OMP" isn't really enough to say that it was anti-Polish, on the other hand it's the first attack on this Polish centre since sth like 50 or 60 years apparently.

Don't know how the British are taught to write "F" at school but I know for sure that this is not the way Polish people are taught to write the capital "i" (an info for all the internet amateur graphologists out there :)):

twitter.com/CLeddyOwen/status/747433931893579776?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw

Of course, in theory, a Polish person could learn to write it the British way, but what Pole would write sth like that on a war memorial?

Anyway, I don't think vandalism is the worse. I think what's worse is the things Polish people (and others) are experiencing now in their daily lives, so I think I'll have to agree with G (undercover) on this one:

nytimes.com/2016/06/28/world/europe/as-migrants-face-abuse-fear-that-brexit-has-given-license-to-xenophobia.html?_r=2

Others took to Twitter to convey their shock. Jamie Pohotsky, a screenwriter from Boston, wrote on Twitter: "Table next to me says to Polish waitress 'How come you're so cheerful? You're going home.' Him and the missus started laughing. Disgusting."

mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/troubling-stories-everyone-should-read-8294187

"Liz Palmer
My friend had to intervene yesterday at gatwick airport when a british man said to a polish guy that he shouldn't still be here, that we had voted to be rid of people like him. How has this happened that people think it is acceptable to say things like this? petty racism becoming mainstream, a scary rise of nationalism that reminds me of what happened in the 1930's. scary times when this sort of viewpoint becomes so mainstream..."

bloomberg.com/news/articles/2016-06-26/racist-incidents-have-u-k-worried-what-referendum-has-wrought

"Britons have taken to Facebook and Twitter to report other racist incidents. One user, Fiona Anderson, described "an older woman on the 134 bus gleefully telling a young Polish woman and her baby to get off and get packing." A professor at Coventry University, Heaven Crawley, said on Twitter on Friday that "This evening my daughter left work in Birmingham and saw group of lads corner a Muslim girl shouting 'Get out, we voted leave'.""

independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/brexit-eu-referendum-racial-racism-abuse-hate-crime-reported-latest-leave-immigration-a7104191.html

"A few hours after the announcement of the referendum, she says she was approached by a woman who asked her if she was Polish. When she said she was, she said the woman told her to be "scared" and that she must get a visa if she wanted to stay in "her" country.

"The vicious smile and the way she looked at me brought me to tears," said Ms Brzezniak."

It's particularly disgusting as the english have had millions of non-europeans there and somehow don't have much problem with them... and "logically" they should target them first, in Poland racists might have some issues with Blacks or Arabs but not really with other Europeans. Apparently the english tribemen look down on us as a sort of subhumans and we treat their "English teachers" and other parasites as friggin royalty. It's time to give them the boot.

I think these non-European have problems with them too.

It is just easier to attack Polish as it is more xenophobia than racism.
