  • I certainly hope there are enough of us ready to spark a new American revolution before the PC insanity goes that far here in the States.  I’m equally disappointed in and saddened for our brothers and sisters in old Britain.

    • The revolution won’t start until White Gentiles take a look around and realize that the J-words send their own kids to 100% Diversity Free private schools, while Whitey elite private schools are now fully Diversity Enriched.

      The dissonance is our opportunity…

  • bubo

    Yes, but how do they know some of the revelers  seated around this rogue weren’t agreeing with him?   The two behind him seem thoroughly entertained by his monkey antics.   The man on his immediate right is smiling while the man on his left is yelling something.   All should be brought in for intense questioning as to whether they also have racist thoughts.  

  • I find it hilarious that the blacks and the PC brigade take such offense to this.  It obviously means that we are striking close to the truth!   I guess they think of themselves as not that far removed from their simian ancestors and hate it when they are reminded of such!  It reminds me of how offended black people were by the Jar Jar Binks character. 

    • Zqrxpad

      Exactly- if they themselves didn’t think they looked like monkeys, they wouldn’t have been “offended”! if someone made that gesture to me I wouldn’t take offense because I know I don’t look like a monkey!

    • Bantu_Education

      Its not hilarious at all, its horrifying..!! 

    • FourFooted_Messiah

       Wait what?  I thought only Star Wars fans were offended by Jar Jar Binks.  What on EARTH and in all of space does that fantasy creature have to do with black humans?

      • Jar Jar Binks, like most black people, is a ruiner.

  • IstvanIN

    The UK will destroy a man’s life because he had to scratch an itch that happened to be in his armpit.  Amazing how truly messed up a once great nation has become.

      Remember the man who was arrested during the Olympics because he looked unhappy while watching an event?

      • Puggg

        The official line is that he was arrested because his lack of cheering at a road race (I think it was either a cycling or running event) while everyone else was cheering made the cops suspicious that he was up to no good.

        That’s how the Olympics in London went off without any real problems, because London was turned into a dictatorship for two weeks.  And tah dah, you need a dictatorship to have real peace in a country full of problematic Muslims and blacks.  Will England take the hint and restore its ethnostate?

    I’d like to know from some of our British readers what the average Brit really thinks about nonsense like this? I know what race realists think about it, but I’m wondering…..Do they make excuses for this insanity, or are they starting to grumble, even just a little? Can’t they see what’s happening to them? I know our own country has it’s fair share of clueless Whites and loony liberals, but Britain has gone completely over the edge persecuting their own people. Not that I don’t doubt they’ll try the same thing here in the US before long….

      I’m one and it’s making things worse. Which for people like me , means better.
      Sooner then we can all start waking  up again

  • Oil Can Harry

    There must not be any murders, rapes or robberies in the UK since the police have time to investigate incidents like this…

    • The police are the military wing of the left wing political establishment

  • Britain like most European countries are communist in all but name.

    • MarcusTrajanus

       No communist country I know has ever imported millions of blacks.

      • East Germany imported Third World ” refugees ” and then dumped them on West Germany, just to cause mischief. The same tactic was used by Fidel Castro opening up his prisons and dumping all his criminals on Florida.

        • anonymous_amren

          Actually, Castro was right to do that, since Cuba’s criminals are created by Florida. It would be just like America dumping all their criminals on Africa. Totally fair.

  • MarcusTrajanus

    “Chelsea and the Metropolitan (Thought) Police have…” very little to do, apparently, if they can waste their time and resources on “investigating” this non-event.

  • In Britain, the Conservative party are like the Liberals, the Liberal party are socialists and the Labour party are Cultural Marxists.

    The whole cultural orthodoxy is Left. Rupert Murdoch and Fox TV is considered the Anti Christ.

    • anonymous_amren

      It’s not that Britain is especially left wing, it’s that the USA is insanely right wing. No other white country comes close to the USA. And the USA’s insane right-wing politics hasn’t helped race realism at all.

  • MarcusTrajanus

      He may consider the black a monkey, but he and his fellow White football fans are paying his outrageous salary by buying tickets (and shirts, scarfs, hats, etc).

  • Strider73

    I find it more than a touch ironic that a Chelsea fan would make a monkey gesture. Apparently the gent hasn’t noticed that his own team is about the blackest in the Premier League. One would be hard-pressed to tell the difference between Chelsea FC and the Ghana national team, or the “French” gang that self-destructed in the last World Cup.

    And that’s why my favorite EPL side is whoever is playing against Chelsea on any given day.

  • The tolerance of White Brits for total anti White privilege hatred and  despotism is remarkable.  Are they snow angels?

  • IstvanIN

     A sense of decency?  My goodness, who did this man hurt, really, who?  Maybe the gesture was immature, but it was completely harmless.  For a monkey gesture he should be arrested and his life ruined?  Have a sense of proportion.  If your government hadn’t given away your tiny island kingdom to foreigners we wouldn’t be having this conversation.  Keep this in mind: sub-Saharan Africa is larger and has more natural resources than Great Britain.  If the blacks now in your country had any brains they would be living in Africa and would be a lot wealthy than you fellows.

    • Bantu_Education

      You took the words right out of my mouth Istvan, thankyou..!!

  • Bantu_Education

    I’m old enough to remember when professional footballers were all (or mostly) local boys and got paid £20 a week (perhaps double the average working mans wage at the time) in the 3rd divsion and maybe up to £100 in the 1st division. but rarely more.  I cannot see the point in supporting a “local team” that not only doesn’t have any “local” players but imports them from overseas, worst of all Africans who are so obviously not British.   Its obvious to me that this football fan feels the same way as I do and is merely showing his frustration with the ridiculous situation.   I would like to see a limit of one foreign player per team, and then only on an exchange basis.  “Any of you (white) boys willing to volunteer to play in Nigeria this season so that we can get Lucky Boy Johnson to play for us?”   Nah..!!

    What the Hell is a ‘monkey gesture’ anyway?
    Monkeys are generally small, long-tailed arboreal living creatures which exist on a diet of fruit, what habitual gestures they make I don’t know, perhaps it’s swinging from a tree with the tail.

    Anyway the story just illustrates the limits of absurdity – and state oppression that exists in modern Britain. Apparently, one can now be forthwith arrested and slung in jail for making an ‘unlawful’ posturing of the body – never mind actually saying or writing anything.
      Are their any other nations on Earth, democracies, dictatorships, absolute monarchies etc, that enforce such oppressive and anti-human laws?
       Even Monty Pyhon couldn’t come up with this level of absurdity.

  • KenelmDigby

    I’ve never seen a monkey even make an approximation to the type of gesture depicted.
     The shoulder bones of monkeys are orientated in a different way from those of humans, (monkeys are tree dwellers and climbers), making such gestures difficult.

  • FourFooted_Messiah

     I thought it was common for sports fans to make rude gestures, noises, heckles, jeers etc at opposing players.  It’s all part of the game.

    Oh my, what would happen if someone heard the guy yelling “Yer a bum!”?

    Rio Ferdinand, the professional anti white racist,  is starting  up a black union of footballers.

       A Black Football Union?  Is that legal in the UK?  The BNP wasn’t allowed to have a British-only membership policy.

      • FourFooted_Messiah

         Isn’t it the same anywhere?  Here in Canada, nobody seems to think twice about jobs being advertised EXCLUSIVELY in Punjabi or Mandarin or Urdu, with NO ads in either official language.  It’s ok to have all Chinese, all Pakis, all Sikhs, etc, but Oh, My Goodness – do NOT have an all-white workplace.

        Same thing with clubs, unions, etc.  It`s ok if it`s exclusive to ANYTHING but Anglos and or other whites.

     Oh, so there were actually some monkeys there to offend?  I didn’t know that.

    The UK is a totalitarian state and is far more deserving of a boycott than the old South Africa was- even for honest racial liberals. 

    Does anyone contest this story?:
    “The arrest of over 53 people in the United Kingdom is the beginning of the end for once-great Britain.  The leaders of the English Defence League (EDL), Tommy Robinson and Kevin Carroll, were among those arrested, as well as Paul Weston of the British Freedom Party (BFP).  I spoke with Kevin Carroll about his recent arrest and that of Robinson and Weston, and he told me the appalling details.
    Carroll told me that British authorities tried everything in the book to stop him from running for police and crime commissioner (PCC) for the Bedfordshire Police Authority.  Nonetheless, he officially won the right to run for PCC last Friday.  But then, the very next day, British authorities carried out these mass arrests of EDL and BFP members, stripping them and forcing them to wear white paper overalls like those given to incarcerated terrorists.  They were allowed no phone calls.
    Meanwhile, British police raided the homes of Carroll, Robinson, and three others who had been arrested.  “They absolutely ransacked mine,” Carroll told me.  “They smashed the door off and wrecked my home.  They took my only vehicle, with all the tools of my trade inside, and impounded it, as well as Tommy’s car.”  The police, the bomb squad, forensics teams, and sniffer dogs spent seven and a half hours stripping Carroll’s van to the bone.  “When they finished,” he said, “they found nothing!  They loaded it up with bugs and GPS monitors and threw everything in the back; it looks like it’s been in a blender.”
    After smashing the door to Carroll’s home off its hinges, police officials repaired it, got a locksmith to put on a new lock, and left with the new keys, leaving Carroll locked out of his own home.  When Carroll was released, still wearing his white paper prison suit, it was dark and raining; true to form, police officials offered him no transportation, even though it was late at night on a Sunday.”

    Please, please for the sake of your posterity, rise up ye English and TAKE BACK your country.

    Back in the 1980s, when black soccer players first started entering British soccer in large numbers, sports journalists working at BBC TV News were very fond of a certain phrase whenever a black player scored a goal and executed a skillful move. In their ‘match reports’ they were very eager to slip in the phrase ” John Barnes (or whoever) shows us a bit more of that old black magic on the pitch today” – the phrase “that old black magic” came from the 1940s song of that name.
    BBC jounalists kept repaeting the stock phrase over and over again until black soccer players complained against it.
     – And this is the same BBC that regularly goes into racial hysterics these days.
