Sun readers, the BNP and Belfast

I posted earlier about how the readers of the Mail reacted to the news that over 100 Romanians had been hounded out of their homes by racists. But the comments on the Sun website are even worse. Despicable, knuckle-dragging, slack-jawed filth that puts the Mail's efforts to shame (click for larger images)
This all makes depressing reading. Stand out comments include:
SOMETIMES IT'S THE ONLY WAY TO GET THINGS DONE!
...which was posted by 'upthearse' - appropriately, as that's where his comment seems to come from. And then there's the twisted logic of 'mickey1':
lETS HAVE A COLLECTION AND SEND THEM HOME,I AM FED UP WITH THESE PEOPLE BEGGING AND HARRASING PEOPLE,SEND THEM HOME.
...who is attacking the victims for 'harrasing [sic] people'. Go figure.

'Comfortablynumb' says this is 'very understandable' and prays for more of the same: 'I just know it isn't going to be the last we hear of it will it be here next...with a bit of luck?'

'elmlea22' decides to go for the insightful: 'GREAT... Bet they will come to the UK now' - proving s/he's such a patriot, they don't even know what the UK is.

The BNP has put out a press release entitled 'BNP Leader Condemns Belfast Anti-Gypsy Violence and Immigration Policy Which Allows It to Happen'. And yes, it does contain a vague condemnation of the attacks:
No one wants to see any person attacked and for that reason all right-minded people will condemn the attacks over the past few days.
Which echoes the 'I'm not racist but'-type comments from the Sun morons. But it also contains a series of vile anti-Gypsy sentiments and innuendos about crime perpetrated by Gypsies. It says:
We also have to bear in mind that the Gypsy community is notorious for its extremely high rate of criminality and anti-social behaviour...I am quite sure that the people of Belfast are reacting to what they see as provocation from the Gypsy invasion of their city, and while I cannot support their reaction, I think that it was fairly predictable, given what everyone knows about Eastern Europe’s Gypsy population.
So the BNP and the people who comment at the Mail and Sun agree - it's all the fault of the Romanians.
