Daily Mail can’t even condemn a racist attack on Muslims without employing anti-migrant rhetoric

The Daily Mail reports that a drunken couple of Polish origin, Beata Jopek and her partner Maciej Matysniak, racially abused two hijab-wearing Muslim women, Hana Farah and Ithil Ibrahim, on a Leeds-Sheffield train.

It was Matysniak who first approached the two women and told them: “Shut the f*** up”, why are you so “f****** loud, aren’t you embarrassed about how loud you are? You can’t even speak English.”

Jopek then told the women to “go back to your own country”, screaming “no-one wants you here, you are f****** disgusting”. She shouted at one of them: “Take that f****** thing off, a white person wouldn’t do what you are doing.” She ripped the headscarf from one of the women and when restrained by a guard said: “If I lose the baby I’m going to kill the black b****.”

Jopek narrowly escaped a prison sentence at Sheffield Crown Court after both women said they would prefer that their assailants be made to recognise what they did was wrong rather than go to jail. Jopek was given a three-month sentence suspended for 12 months and 120 hours of unpaid community work. Matysniak was given a 12-month community order with 80 hours of unpaid work.

So what headline did the Mail choose for their report? “White bigots launched racist tirade against Muslims”, perhaps? Of course not. Instead, we get: “Pregnant Polish migrant told British Muslim women wearing hijabs to ‘go back to your own country’ in drunken tirade.”

Bloody Poles, coming over here and abusing our Muslims. Don’t they realise this is the job of decent British newspapers like the Daily Mail?
