More Islamophobia in Polish Football

“Islamophobes” among Polish football (soccer) fans are at it again: they unveiled a giant anti-jihad banner in the stands at a match on Sunday.

From Breitbart London:

Polish Football Fans Unfurl 50-Foot ‘Stand And Defend Christianity’ Banner At Premier League Match

Just a week after Poland voted to kick out every left-wing member of it’s national parliament, ordinary Poles have again shown the spirit which led them to elect the nationalist conservative Law and Justice party, with football fans unveiling an over-sized anti-migration banner at Sunday’s match.

The hand-painted sheet, which is estimated to have been at least 50 feet tall and 75 feet wide depicts boatloads of migrants preparing to land on the southern shore of Europe. Many of the boat’s crews make the one fingered ‘ISIS salute’.

Defending Europe while clutching a sword and a shield showing the crest of the Silesian Wrocław football club, a St. George’s cross-wearing crusader stands ready to fight the migrants, below writing which reads “While Europe Is Flooded With An Islamic Plague”.

Underneath, another 100 foot wide banner hangs from the stalls behind the goal and reads, in a traditional Polish script: “Let Us Stand In Defence Of Christianity”.

Wrocław football club has one of the largest supporter bases in Poland, and the most politically active. Banners with strong anti-Communist messages are commonly seen at their games – and the fans like to get involved.

As well as football scarves which split space between the crests of the team, Poland, and anti-Islam symbols, banners seen at past matches have also condoned violence towards supporters of left-wing political views.

  1. Can the Europeans here answer me this:

    Between the North-South economic divide in the EU, and the East-West cultural divide in the EU:

    a) How long until the EU breaks up?

    b) Will it be the Eastern Europeans leaving first due to cultural (Islamic issues) or the Southern Europeans leaving first due to economic (Austerity) issues?

    c) Is the EU really ready to economically sanction Hungary over the Islamic invasion issue? And would Orban retaliate by turning to Russia and leaving the EU and possibly NATO?

    • a) hopefully soon, but there are strong forces in Brussels which seek to prevent it by shoveling large amounts of bribes to eastern secessionists. Alone Poland gets afaik 10 Billion Euro per year.

      b) eastern. The south is too dependant on money transfer from the north.

      c) IMO it depends the severity of sanctions. If they cut the subventions to Hungary heavily, he would be pissed off and initiate a petition for/against in the EU.

  2. I’m no fan of football and in fact I consider it to be little more than an international tripping-up competition played by some of the finest thespians on the planet for the financial benefit of some of the biggest crooks on the planet.

    That said, however, I’m with these particular people all the way and will have to revise my opinion of they, the spectators, particularly the Polish ones, if not of the drama queen performers and their fat cat beneficiaries.

    So, well done, all of you guys and gels in the stands, there is hope yet.

    • Seneca-

      Agree 100% about sport and how it has been corrupted by moneyed interests. I also think it a farce that the media constantly tries to deny that PED use is rampant in all professional sports leagues.

  3. “Just a week after Poland voted to kick out every left-wing member of it’s national parliament, ordinary Poles have again shown the spirit which led them to elect the nationalist conservative Law and Justice party”

    I’ll just add that even the liberal/left-wing opponents of the new “nationalist” government of the Law and Justice party like to insult it by referring to their Polish initials (“PiS”), and using terms such as “Pislamists” or “Pislam” to highlight their authoritarian nature.

    In fact, some of the most vigorously anti-Islam people I know in Poland come from the liberal/leftist side of the political spectrum.

  4. Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton fans react to her supposed “plan to implement Sharia law”:

    And who’s the dumb ones out of the two? The Polish football hooligans, with banners saying “Stop Hijra!” and containing fairly-accurate drawings of “Isis salutes”, or the well-qualified student fans of Hillary showing off their knowledge of Sharia?

    (btw, Vlad Tepes has also blogged about both of these, here: )

  5. It was nice to see a protest against the imposition of Islam by immigration showing some ‘Polish’ 🙂

  6. Our Slavic Brothers and Sisters know the nature of the enemy. There is no ,that is zero Political Correctness (cultural Marxism) here the Poles are speaking their minds.

  7. and the photo was published by the Daily Mail in the UK, so it has done the rounds of Europe. The underlying message is clear.

  8. Good for the Polish football supporters! There is clearly safety in numbers and the thought police cannot arrest all of them.

  9. ‘and the thought police cannot arrest all of them.’

    Don’t believe it !! The club will probably be fined by EUFA (the governing body of European Football) for ‘failing to control their fans’.

    Currently EUFA is proceeding with a case against Manchester City fans because they, heresy of heresies (!), booed during the playing of the ‘EUFA Official National Anthem’ before a Champions League match.

    All these Europe wide organisations have their own ‘Official Anthems’. The EU uses Beethoven’s ‘Ode to Joy’. At least it isn’t Wagner ! The EU Anthem is regularly booed except in a few countries – the main country where it isn’t booed is Germany.

    • I think it is time one of our more imaginative contributors wrote some alternative lyrics to “Ode to Joy,” the ruder the better.

  10. This makes me so proud to be Polish on my mother’s side – well done cousins!

    However, I am also a quarter German, and I find the conduct of those relations deeply shameful.

  11. Great banner, even well-designed graphically speaking. Regarding the “Refugees Welcome” banners that appeared in some German football stands early on to great media fanfare, they tended to be long and thin with just one guy holding a pole on each end, so effectively those two guys could have staged the whole thing by themselves (with a third to take the shot), without most of the fans even being aware let alone agreed. It struck me instantly as staged propaganda by the usual suspects.
