You see this is half the problem, people like you waltzing into threads without reading half the content. I think you will find that someone had already posted a link to the local newspaper of that area that confirmed that this same thing had happened the year before. Here it is again Telegraph and argus report


Are you sure about that link? The only mention of Asians is in relation to two Asian cadets who were spat at by the youths.


Two Asian girl cadets were also verbally abused for selling poppies and two other sellers were set upon in the city centre. One young poppy seller had her tin snatched from her shoulder.


I just googled for the genuine Bradford account of Muslims abusing/attacking poppy sellers and noticed how many anti-Muslim organisations have released stories in the past week about it. A cynic would suspect they are using this Remembrance Day to incite hatred. Oddly enough, the lack of news stories from actual news sites kind of undermines their BS.

Maybe some of the members in this thread would enjoy this? Muslim youths start a poppy appeal. Nah! Wrong kind of Muslims aren't they?!

The thread topic was Cadets in Liverpool being abused by Muslims and there's no evidence at all that it ever happened. Instead of members asking why a Nationalist website would make up racial/religious scare-stories we're off down the road of random anecdotes, inaccurate story links and nothing at all to do with Liverpool or Cadets.

As I said, it's a hoax - one of many that have repeated themselves for the last two years. It's tedious and an insult to our collective intelligence.



And the same goes for you, read the WHOLE thread instead of forming an opinion which is not based on any evidence other than your gut feeling. It has happened before in only last year. Telegraph & Argus

Funny thing is they HAVE! to have minders ,,,as they are CHILDREN and under protection of children act need minders(adult supervision) in the streets to protect them from NUTTERS of all descriptions.

When I did the poppy appeal when I was in the cadets I could lose count of the WHITE people harrasing me ...PUNKS(was in the 80s) drunks , Irish , etc etc .. but did I tar all WHITE people with the same brush as you ...Errr no I didnt

It is also strange as there is no follow up to that story anywhere?the argus one..

Harrasing of and theft from People collecting for the poppy appeal happens evey yeaR , BY PEOPLE OF EVERY BACKGROUND....

ie from the bradford and argus article you posted ........tHE ONLY MENTION OF RACE IS THUS...

"Two Asian girl cadets were also verbally abused for selling poppies and two other sellers were set upon in the city centre. One young poppy seller had her tin snatched from her shoulder."

SO YOU SEE THE CADETS WERE ASIAN , THE ATTACKERS RACES ARE NOT MENTIOned!!! In YOUR SOURCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

in your mind you have read "asian thugs (cos it bradford all thugs must be asian) attack white army cadet ( same reasons) on poppy day.

I think you have been far to quick to move this to the Hoax bin Kandinsky. We have a legitimate News story from a source in Bradford saying the same thing has happened there. We have Muslims burning poppies and screaming obscenities during funeral parades and general hatred in many parts of the country including like I said here in Birmingham were we are having similar problems.

I understand your suggestion that right wing propaganda have an agenda here to put across false information but unless we can know one way or the other how in the hell can you be so certain that this is a hoax given the circumstances? If that's the grounds on which threads are moved to the Hoax section then over half of ATS should be in there!!

I'm not talking about why the minders are there but the fact that this disgusting act has happened at all. The fact that the racial identity of these animals has been omitted from the artical only strengthens my suspicion that who did this would be a Muslim with extreme views. This happens all too often in the British media for fear of stirring up the racial bucket. Just look at all the Muslim grooming that happened recently. It has been suggested that action was not taken sooner because of the fact they were all Asian and Muslim. Lets be honest for one second here. There is only one group I know of in this country that would show so much hate to the symbolic poppy as I've seen it first hand. I am not saying by any means that all Muslims behave in this way but everyone here are pretending there is not a problem and defending it!!

When a moderator participates in a thread they lose the right to moderate the thread and become members again within the thread.

It's about ethical moderation and a very good idea.

As such I have had no say whatsoever in staff actions or moves to hoax. I think it's more the case that members in Liverpool have shown it never happened and members from elsewhere couldn't find any evidence either. Therefore it was the members who kicked it into the hoax bin.

At the end of the day, Liverpool is my home city and we've got enough problems there without nationalist minority extremists shouting 'fire' in the theatres.

So you've finally read the link you've been posting over and over? And despite no mention of Muslims in the article you reckon they are Muslim extremists? They *might* have been, who knows? Thing is, in most towns we see this happen and it's the white kids doing it. My mate got stabbed by a bunch of white teens and my car's been broken into by local heroin addicts. I've had grief from the Welsh in Anglesey and from Scots in Glasgow for being English.

My point is that trouble-makers come from everywhere and no colour, religion or region has the monopoly.

You make an interesting point. Usually the media uses the code term 'Asian' to denote Muslim.

Looking at the replies here I am actually astounded to see so much racism. Obviously children shouldn't be manhandled and I wasn't there to witness the truth of the event but maybe it didn't go down as reported, this could be one of many reportings which are designed to encourage public opinion more and more in favour of war with muslim countries. Logically, doesn't it seem a little off that people would just attack children over poppies? It makes more sense if you consider that perhaps the kids got into a verbal dispute and were thrown out. The fact that a shopkeeper or two were muslim might be exploited to turn it into a part of the pro war campaign.
If poppies are about remembrance they would be free, it is shocking when you see what the money is used for so I don't think children should be handling them anyhow but I encourage you all to reconsider opinions about stories like this and keep racism and ignorance out of it.

This country is filled with gutless, lazy cowards and I'm talking about my own people here. We have allowed ourselves to be brainwashed and divided and then we sit posting on the internet and moaning in our own homes! In other country that Shopping Mall would've been torched to the ground with them shop keepers in it! No wonder other races can get away with murder, literally! And yes, the offenders would've been Muslim, I know this as this happened in London and then when it was looked in to be investigating officers to flag similar incidents, it was flagging up all over the country, hundreds and hundreds of incidents! However, do not put all Asians in with this, this is not all Asians, these are people of Islamic following in particular and obviously not all Muslims are against the poppy, but you would be shocked just how many are, even if they are not as aggressive as this scum.

I said the same when I lived and grew up in East London, funny enough nobody took any notice of me, probably because I was white and English, but I'll think you'll find people are having what the mainstream would consider as "racist views" because the whole issue of race is filled with hypocrisy and blatant one sided bias! Which is fine if you have another country to flee too, unfortunately most of us were born in this country and several generations of ancestors born in this country and so we have nowhere else to go to, yet get treated like aliens in our own coutnry! I should know. So whenever another race other than white is highlighted, its racism, whenever certain beliefs associated with such race or group is highlighted, its racism. It's only racism because people at the top don't want to admit that this country is an absolute mess and all that has happened through years of uncontrolled immigration is pockets of areas where people have not integrated one bit and worst of all, these same people were left to harbour racist beliefs themselves towards the people of the country that they chose to come to! You can call it the PC point your finger and shut your mouth label of racist and then that's it, we're all racists, then what? Will that stop this country heading in the direction its heading in? No! Will that make the problems and issues go away? No! Racism and ignorance are terms simply meant to shut out any argument relating to race, even if the arguments are logical, truthful and based on nothing more than experience, once someone calls you a racist, you're meant to go away. Unfortunately or fortunately, depending on your point of view, more and more are opening their eyes to this falacy, however, this is then turning to hatred of those people who have benefited from such biased policies, rather than the policy makers and I can't blame them! Call us and our views what you like, won't make the issue go away!

No two religions are equal in the prevalence of extremism (both relative and absolute), nor in the danger the extremists possess. So judging which religion is worse is justified. Also, religion is not a race, so crying racism is nonsense.


Which religion is worse or more extreme is based on perception. Usually which ever religion you are not familiar with gets the bad rap. As for racism if you have a hate for other enthic groups besides your own ( as casually stated migrants) then you are a racist. Other words that would qualify are Xenophobe or Supremist. You could apply all these descriptions to some of these posts and would not be incorrect.

Drunk raged at a poppyseller after missing bus
Source: www.bedfordshire-news.co.uk... and an earlier report: www.bedfordshire-news.co.uk... Make sure you read all the way to the end of the 2nd article.

Over a week on and there is still no one can stand this story up...turns out that kids joining the Liverpool cadets were in more danger from their instructors than beared bogey men in robes.
And that to me is the point.

This was a lame attempt by a far right group to hijack remembrance day...some of you fell for it, without bothering to check either the source or the facts.

Before I continue I would like to take the somewhat unorthodox step of referencing for consideration a post I offered the other day here, which, lest anyone should misinterpret my intentions, was not meant to toot the horn of ATS, merely utilize something I though would be familiar to us all in order demonstrate a point and highlight a danger I thought needs consideration before we attempt to cast a wider net: The great temptation and yet folly of attempting to 'bale out the basement while there's holes in the roof' so to speak.

For as long as I can recall there's never been a better time, an easier time to point fingers but a quick glance at history should offer us an understanding of why such times are so dangerous. Below, in order, I offer what I hope will be recognised as a two part incarnation of the quote attributed to Martin Niemöller (1892–1984) and which I hope, although presented from a different angle, adds weight to the argument I offered in the post linked above -

I think you will find my comments were in general amd actually this has happened in many areas across the country, assaults and threats relating to the sale of poppies. You can say its an attempt by the far right and perhaps that story is, but I see on a daily basis crimes of similar nature going unreported in the media, yet crimes that are shall we say, reversed being reported everywhere. So if this story brings to light the issue then brilliant. I will never forget ten years ago the same was happening about groups of Asian men drugging and raping young white girls, that was met with a similar response as you have just given and I dont need to tell you what has come out in recent years. The truth will always win, in the end.

I don't mean that everyone should shut up and go away, I'm simply hoping that people might open their eyes to the fact that this racicm is encouraged in order to justify genocide. It is easy to destroy something you hate and to get the tax payer to pay for it there must be a mechanism in place which encourages the dehumanisation of whomever the percieved enemy is. In this case it is muslims- whos beliefs and practices and history are only as backward, violent and sordid as christianity's. The immigrants everyone is so quick to look down on are by and large willing to work hard and pay taxes as our immigration policies deny them the luxury of sitting around watching TV and boozing it up on job seekers allowance. Our 'wonderfull white britain' has become a nation of spoiled children. So, no I'm not casually pointing the finger and shouting racism, I do see your point but I just wish people would consider a little more where the source of their hate is generated from.

I make no bones about my dislike of this thread and its xenophobic topic as I outlined in my first post I do however have one quick query, why has it been hoaxed. I never believed it in the first place but all the same I would like to know what proof there is that this is a absolute lie being promoted by that website.

Thanks.

Yet criticism of Christianity appears to be open season on ATS.

By the way, I think most British people have come to the conclusion that pretending a problem doesn't exist doesn't make it go away.

Almost half the country would back a party that cracked down on Islamic extremism, restricted the building of new mosques and encouraged English or British nationalism.

A total of 48 per cent said that they would support a group that vowed to crack down on immigration and Islamic extremists.


A Populus poll found that 48 per cent of the population would consider supporting a new anti-immigration party committed to challenging Islamist extremism, and would support policies to make it statutory for all public buildings to fly the flag of St George or the union flag.

The Telegraph


If 48 per cent would support such policies, could it not be that the views expressed by such “extremists” are not extreme after all but rather mainstream?


Bashing of any religion should be encouraged in my opinion.
However the bashing of any religions followers is not on. we don't want them shoving their religious crap down our throats so why would we shove our non religious crap down theirs?

You haven't proven that this incident happened, save one link to a dubious website, a website with a wicked agenda all of it's very own.

What you've given us isn't proof. It's hearsay, speculation, housewife tittle tattle, idle bus stop gossip. And that's why the thread has been consigned to the Hoax forum.

Your own reputation would be enhanced if your gave us proof that this incident actually happened, rather than slagging off the moderator staff.

People have a right to do what ever they want until it starts to infringe upon other people's rights.

In other words, Muslims can do whatever they like.

Until they do things like are marching in the street demanding death for people who insult Islam (as far back as 1989 in the UK with Salman Rushdie), pushing for the imposition of halal meat in British supermarkets and fast food restaurants and marching on the YouTube UK head office demanding videos that 'insult' Islam be removed.

British Muslims join global protests over bestowal of knighthood to author Salman Rushdie

Top supermarkets secretly sell halal: Sainsbury's, Tesco, Waitrose, and M&S don't tell us meat is ritually slaughtered

Chic ken McHalal: McDonald's denied using halal meat... now it admits meat IS in one of its most popular meals

Muslims march on Google UK to protest Innocence video

10,000 Muslims Protest Against Free Speech at Google in UK

Notwithstanding things such as 4,000 British Muslims have been trained by the Taliban and that British Muslims are the number one source of finance for the Taliban British Muslims are infringing on my rights. I have every right to criticize Islam and British Muslims.
