JACK KRAK - How the BBC Manufactured ‘Hate’

The Polish do have a problem with violent football fans, but when the BBC went to Poland to make a documentary about football fan race hate, they were disappointed, so much so, they had to do a lot of editing, cutting, and pasting to make the documentary they wanted. When the documentary came out, the Polish were outraged and so was their government.

Just like in Britain, some of the Polish football clubs are owned by Jews, and rival fans will chant, 'Death to Jews', meaning death to the rival team's fans, where those fans may actually call themselves, 'The Jews '.

The BBC Panaroma program couldn't find any race hate towards black people either, but that didn't stop them from editing the program to make it look like there was. They heard what they thought was a fan in the crowd making monkey sounds, but it was very difficult to ascertain whether that is what it was, but they added the sound to a film clip of a black football player getting the ball.

They interviewed two black football players who said they had experienced no racism in Poland, but they did say that they had heard of  black people who had experiencing it. But in the final edit the BBC chopped up the interview and along with voice overs they were able to make it look like the black footballers had experienced racism.

Although Poland does have a problem with violent football fans, Jack Krak says that on the whole the Polish are a very pleasant and easy going people. Britain once had a problem with violent football fans too, way back in the 1970's, but most British people were nothing like that. There was just a very small minority of violent fans that caused all the problems. Maybe about a few hundred at the clubs which had this issue, which is hardly an epidemic, or representative of the British peoole, who hated these yobs.

Many of the older clubs originally had or are thought to have had Jewish financial backing. This is almost certainly true of the team in Lodz—called Widzew Łódź—since that city had a large Jewish population before the Second World War. These origins have become a source of cheap name calling for people who seize on any excuse to trade insults. When fans chant “death to the Jews,” it sounds shocking—and it certainly is brutish—but this is mainly a way of attacking the other team rather than Jews.
There has been a similar situation with the London football club Tottenham Hotspur, which has had Jewish owners. Fans of rival clubs started chanting about the “Jewish” team. Tottenham supporters eventually embraced this and some even call themselves the “Yid Army.” The fans of one Polish club, Cracovia, were in the same position and did the same thing, now proudly calling themselves the “Jewish Sons of Bitches.” When I told the BBC about that, they weren’t interested.

JACK KRAK - How the BBC Manufactured ‘Hate’

Some English hooligans (warning: explicit language!). This is England.

This takes me back to my childhood, where I once lived on a council estate.

I've read literally hundreds of articles which attribute "hate" to all and sundry (as in "hate speech" "hate crime" etc). But I've never once seen so much as the beginnings of an attempt to ACTUALLY PROVE that those accused of hate are actually motivated by hate.

What do you call someone who attributes "hate" to someone else without VERY GOOD reasons? I'd call them "nasty little sub-human hate-filled shits"....:-)

There are none so hateful as those who obsessively hunt for “hate.”
