Ostrich Syndrome

Morning,all.

 

Sunday was a better performance from our side than we have witnessed for much of the season,but events since have served to knock any slight joy we felt at even such a minor improvement. I’m sure we all saw the post-match events in Armadale in particular,where a crowd of the brethren closed off the streets as they gathered in an illegal congregation-only for an attending police van to turn tail and flee from the scene. None of their colleagues turned up later either,and the scenes there only added to the reports we have all seen from all over The Central Belt about them taking over the towns from early in the morning,painted the kerbs red white and blue,displaying their flags from as many lampposts as they could find,etc.

 

While not on the scale of two weeks previously,the reaction from the authorities was the same as ever-ignore everything,tolerate everything,encourage everything. What happened to a young Polish family man later in the evening was significantly worse,when he was attacked by neighbours and very nearly decapitated by their murder weapon of choice-a machete! The reporting of this horrendous crime has been disgraceful,barely registering a mention on most media sites. The reaction of the authorities has been even more low-key than that!

 

They then added insult to injury by releasing a statement which cleared them for their inaction two weeks previously,the one where they were complicit in the trashing of George Square when they escorted thousands of them to the site for an illegal gathering. You couldn’t make any of the above up,and in Scotland we don’t have to. We have witnessed it for years,but with the authorities burying their heads in the sands for the last decade and more,they have become more galvanised and overt in their displays of hatred.

 

Many of us have warned that allowing them to do as they pleased would not end well. There is little point in comparing how we would be treated under such circumstances,for we know the answers to those questions and that only proves that the laws are there to deal with every facet of their behaviour.

 

That there is not the will and resolve to do so is a dangerous step for Scotland. That lot know no boundaries except when they get knocked back into line. Hollyrood and Police Scotland are playing a very dangerous game by ignoring it,and as we have seen,they are gambling with lives.

 

Another example of burying heads in the sand came with an interview with Dermot Desmond. What a bloody car crash that was. The season isn’t over.we did everything that we could,well-run club and all the usual bullshit that has been fed to us for years. Looking for a manager is an involved and professional process,etc.

 

Actually,Dermot-the only time we have recruited professionally since Gordon Strachan left was when we got it right with Brendan Rodgers. Tony Mowbray got the job because of his previous connection,Neil Lennon fell into it,Ronny Deila wasn’t even meant to be the manager,and Neil Lennon Mk II was an umitigated disaster,the most horrific shower scene since Psycho. And the worst thing is the amount of recruitment required,even apart from the manager!

 
We don’t have our new CEO until 1st of July. We don’t have a manager. We don’t have a Director of Football. We will also need a new captain and a new chief scout,as well as God knows how many players. And we are sitting on our hands,because the new CEO needs to be consulted on all the management roles and the new management team need to be consulted about any new signings!!!

 

The problem with burying your head in the sand is that people will kick you up the arse-or worse! I think the Celtic support have had it with the kickings,and are quite ready to hand out a few of their own. Our board have taken us for granted,for mugs,for long enough. I think they are in for a very rude awakening fairly soon,and they can’t say they weren’t warned.

Can’t disagree with anything in your article, a chara.

Most importantly, what are the authorities in this God forsaken country going to do about this latest atrocity.

I suspect nothing. The square root of feck all. At the end of the day, that could have been any one of us. I feel sickened, ashamed and utterly helpless. Who speaks for us? Not the Scottish Govt. that’s for sure. Not Westminster. Not the PLC. Not the Churches. So who then?

I haven’t read that anyone has even been detained.
That is shocking.
It would seem the killers are being helped.

Dharma Bam

The almost complete media silence over this – would this be a part of a strategy to capture the people who did this?
I am just trying to understand why it hasn’t been reported more than it has . It seems inexplicable.

The Star Above The Crest

Dermot was quoted as saying like all key appointments at Celtic there is process which involves research, interviewing, investigation negotiations etc. Fair enough. Peter Lawwell was quoted as saying we received many approaches but we put them in a file and kept our promise to Neil.

So either one of them is telling lies or the majority shareholder doesn’t know what the CEO is doing when appointing the most important person at the club.

Beyond comprehension at the awful, senseless murder of an individual. God be with them al

Morning all, The upset about football results, fireworks and flags, the anger about the running of the Club has been pushed to the back of my mind with the slaying of Kamil. Regardless of how the situation developed on Sunday night long after the Celtic game ended, this latest brutal murder was as predictable as the statement clearing Police Scotland of any criticism regarding their handling of the Ibrox celebrations of two weeks ago.
Make no mistake…this facilitation of this mob’s entitlement can only ever end badly – and the taking of the life of Kamil leaving a young family destroyed and devastated – is a fine example of what happens when one section of society is permitted free rein. Someone mentioned yesterday that the actions in the Square reminded them of the aftermath of the Indyref vote well Kamil’s death reminds me of the 1995 murder of young Mark Scott in cold blood, on the street after a Celtic game just for being a Celtic fan.
The mentality that envelops these people is so hard to fathom. I am heartbroken for Kamil’s family, I am embarrassed for our city and our country that this stuff still goes on unabated because our authorities refuse to call it out. I’m sickened by the inaction of the Ibrox Board when everyone can see it’s their mob who are at the root of this. I cannot believe that our Club allow the media the use of ‘Old Firm’ as an acceptable term to describe the circumstances of a man’s murder in the street when our lawyers should be all over this to dissociate it from our Club. I’m frustrated that my own inaction to do something about this is as much a part of the problem. I’m terrified that one day Kamil could be my own precious son!
This is a new low. This end of season is becoming a watershed for me. I can’t remember being so down on so many aspects of life in this fucking country!

A thing of beauty

McCaff,
Absolutely spot on. I think that is how a lot of us are feeling this morning. We continually hope that things are getting better but they’re not. It’s always there, bubbling just under the surface – that watp supremacist attitude. It is tolerated by the general public, the police and the government and therefore encouraged. As DRM points out, we have a situation now where there is almost media silence about what happened to this poor man. Why is that?
And now we will again have to listen to people saying both sides are the same. Honestly. I can think of no other country in the world where the minority are blamed for the bigotry and racism that they suffer.
One Scotland many cultures. Has there ever been a more meaningless empty phrase. It’s one Scotland one culture and you remember that Timmy. Except that doesn’t quite have the same political ring to it, does it? Like McCaff I feel so angry about what sort of country we are raising our families in. My daughter will have a decision to make in the not too distant future hopefully about whether she lives here or in Australia. I have tried to persuade her that she should stay here for many years, but now? I actually think if I want the best for her future I should encourage her to go. How sad is that?

Noel Skytrot

All taigs are targets and kill all taigs stickers dotted all around the place, places of worship being vandalised, racist and sectarian graffiti scrawled in various locations in and around the Glasgow area. Now we have an individual murdered all because of an argument surrounding football. The common denominator in all of this, lumpen working class people who think that it’s their right to sit at the top of the pile and treat others like shite, that being US. When the carpet baggers were liquidated and started again we never had all this sectarian shite, the minute they are riding on a crest of a wave, we’re back to the same poison that is only found in the supremacist mind. What a sad indictment of Scottish society when these feral bastards are allowed to behave in the manner that they do.

Both The Sun and The Record online are now giving higher profile to Kamil’s murder,shamefully The Record has no description of the killers,or the story’s background.

GER57

We know that the rumpus in George Square the day after Indyrev 1 in 2014 was caused by the same scum who rioted at the same venue two weeks ago. This is what unionjackery is all about; they equate success on the football field by Sevco to British unionism/orange superiority. Violence and murder, or the threat of such, when they win. Should NO win the next Indy referendum, we can look forward to more of the same.
I urge those on here who make cracks about “wee nippy” and “gnats” to seriously consider what side of history they wish to be associated with. A vote for the union is a vote for more mayhem by the hordes.
Don’t come on here lambasting the hordes when your vote has emboldened them. If you can’t stomach the thought of independence for Scotland, then at least abstain in the Indy vote.

Noel Skytrot

Ger57,
I don’t think that who you vote for will eradicate this madness, it’s how you educate that might change it, though I doubt that will have a great effect. Its deeply ingrained in these fools heads and gaining independence doesn’t change that, in fact, I think it’ll embolden them more as they’ll act as those with the supremacist mind always do.As far as i’m concerned the majority regardless of party leanings are political careerists and hucksters who as much as they dress it up don’t really give a fuck for working class people. Until we hold them accountable for every action it’ll be the same old.

McCaff

GER…I think you’re targeting the wrong audience on this site. Irrespective of anyone’s personal Politics the Government of the day has a duty to safeguard the whole of its population. There’s no Party or Government in our lifetime who has even attempted to put the monkeys in their place. The correlation between ‘Unionjackery’ and thuggery is embedded in the psyche of the Hun. Celtic had a wee, once in a lifetime Golden Opportunity to stamp on its neck in 2012 but reneged for an imaginary share of the bigger pot. Kamil Charyszin paid the ultimate price for the sin of being a (presumably) Catholic Celtic fan in this Greatest Wee Invidious Country! But here’s the rub…it shouldn’t be down to a football club to change the mentality of the country. Any outward criticism of the LGBT community, children in our schools with any kind of psychological or physical issue, ethnic minorities and religious groups are rightly condemned. But if you’re Irish Catholic, or you’ve got an Irish-sounding surname or you might want to celebrate Paddy’s Day with the entire world or maybe you’re just an ordinary Celtic Supporter then your protection from abuse is limited. It’s not limited in law, incidentally. You’re protected in law. It’s just that your concerns are not given the priority they should be, in fact you’re dismissed as being paranoid! Only the Government of the day, aided by EXISTING Laws and a compliant Police Force can effect changes, gradual changes that change the mindset of the population. Like the Seatbelt Law, like the Pub Smoking Ban…we accept these changes whilst still be outraged at our Civil Liberties being eroded. Not so the Hun. Their entitlement is propagated by the Parish Council that is Holyrood rushing through ineffective, ill-advised changes targeting not society but football fans, and only football fans, when wider powers were already in place but not used. Or the Media, of all descriptions, who are scared to call out the Ibrox club for what it is whilst the same applies to our MPs and MSPs who sit silently while Kamil is slain outside his home. The few high profile individuals who have called it, and they are few, have been subject to despicable acts of bullying and cowardice. Turnbull Hutton at Raith Rovers, Trish Godman Labour MSP, Lennon, Lawell, Paul McBride QC all had to have Police intervention for various threats, some actual, viable life-threatening threats!
Nothing has changed!

McCaff

Noel….you’ve effectively put my comment in a nutshell! I agree with you completely!

Good Tweet from Bob,Smith Walker, a big Dons fan, we need more like him. He is correct, this is awful from The Spectator.
Shame on @spectator
In Scotland it’s not ‘plastic provos’ running around slitting opponents throats, distributing stickers saying ‘Kill All Taigs” & “All Catholics are Targets” or storming city centres, or painting kerbstones red white & blue. You’re either cynical orignorant. https://t.co/SRhrYjHwqG

Horrific barbaric murder on Sunday, yet hardly merits any news coverage?

Why can’t this diverse nation allow citizens of a certain ethnic background to celebrate a day that is celebrated all over the world with huge displays that highlights their cultural background? Can anyone give me a valid reason? Nah

I’m fucking sick of the empty and hollow platitudes that ring out when events like the one that occurred in Easterhouse, absolutely sickened by it.

This is from Aamer, again.

Spoke to @policescotland this morning about brutal murder of Kamil Charyszyn, despite initial press reports, they confirmed they don’t believe the murder to be football related or sectarian- still looking for the suspects👇🏽 & Kamil’s young family can be supported at link below https://t.co/63p8ch0erM

This is from Polska No 1, 2 hours ago.
I know who I’d believe.
Last Sunday in Glasgow 35 year old Kamil Charyszyn was murdered. Young polish father paid the highest price for where he is from and what he believed in. Thoughts and prayers with his Family . Spoczywaj w pokoju Kamilu…

McCaff

Noel…it doesn’t sit comfortably for me to post this but if a young Muslim had been killed it would be UK news. A deid Taig doesn’t carry the same gravitas, I’d go so far as to say by announcing it to be what it is, a Sectarian killing, puts the Country and ergo the Government in a bad light across the UK and would bring an unwanted spotlight into Scottish society.

McCaff

JNP… Police Scotland cannot be believed or trusted in any aspect of their actions or communications. They are a huge part of the problem we’ve been commenting on. But then of course you know that as well as I do!

I strongly disagree. Why do you believe an Indy Scotland would end sectarianism? I am of the opinion that an Indy Scotland under the control of the current parcel of rouges would do the sum total of nothing to deal with it. Scotland under the current regime has more Orange Order parades each year than are held in the North of Ireland, just let that sink in. They could stop this – they chose not to – why? The nonsense of the past couple of weeks just proves how much the behavior of the brethren is tolerated. They, The SNP have had+ ten years to make a meaningful start on making Scotland the place that their meaningless statements proclaim it is ‘ One Scotland, many cultures’ – aye that will be right. These are the very same people who would govern an Indy Scotland. Sitting SNP MP’s mock the Irish diaspora without censure, their leadership wine and dine in Dublin celebrating the centenary of the 1916 rebellion yet hurry home to vote to protect a bill that criminalised young Scots singing Irish songs of rebellion!!

Until the Scots people rid themselves of their over-reliance on the cult that the Neoliberalist SNP is to voice their desire for independence and finally get around founding an Indy-minded Scottish Socialist party then I, as much as it pains me to admit, could never support an Indy Scotland. The risks to my community are too great.

PS sorry for the political rant, it isn’t meant to offend anyone, I’m just venting.

GER57

The Scottish parliament has been in existence since 1999. There was a Lib/Lab coalition in power until 2007. The SNP has been in power since then, albeit dependent on Tory support until 2011. Lab has simply been all about SNP BAAAAAD since 2007, unable to come to terms with its loss of hegemony in all aspects of Scottish life through its links with Trades Unions and majorities in many local councils.
The only body which has renounced bigotry in the modern era is the Church of Scotland, which had encouraged anti Irish sentiment in the early 29rh century, and acquiesced in the sentiment until the late1980s, after which it has solidly rejected bigotry and encouraged dialogue and cooperation between all faiths and none. There have been a few outliers who have put forward outdated views regarding gays, Muslims and Catholics since, but they are very much on the fringes. Labour, to its eternal shame, have recently made overtures to the OO to try to tap into its anti independence feelings to beat the SNP.
Yes, the SNP has OO origins, yes they made a balls up with the OBAF Act, and yes there are a substantial number in their ranks who are Tory by inclination, but they, and Scotland in general have moved on. Independence is their goal and they now have links with other Indy movements around Europe, including Ireland.
The problem in Scotland is the Masonic cabal who run the police, and this predates the rise of the SNP by several decades. They are 100% responsible for police operational decisions. It’s not right to blame a party who have run Scotland for 14 years for the fact that Scottish society has been historically anti Catholic/Irish.
Most Celtic fans are Scottish. The solution to the bigotry requires political action, so don’t say we shouldn’t discuss politics on a Celtic blog. Our cause is definitely not helped by our own board supporting the OF brand for the sake of £10m per annum. It’s no use us condemning the bigots if our club is cashing in on their sentiments.
The OO is a creation of the British Imperialists, and the Tory party is their tool to perpetuate their Empire. Independence for Scotland would finish off the Empire. That’s why I support it, and I can’t understand any progressive thinking person doesn’t agree.

Mahe ,

thank you for putting up the ” go fund me ” page for Kamil ;

if everyone who is bursting to give DD £600 for a ST donates just £1 , yes £1 ; there’s £ 53 k right away .
Kamil’s family will need all the help they can get so please , every Celtic supporter ; even just £1 if we ALL donate , will make a difference .

Won’t comment in this post , on the ” media ” inaction regarding this murder , out of respect for Kamil and his family .

I don’t wish to engage in a slanging match with you, because I read your posts and agree with most of them. I have made my points in a constructive manner and your response is “that’s bull crap”.
Fair enough.

It would be a fitting tribute if Celtic were to announce a message of deepest sympathy to the family of a Celtic fan brutally murdered on Sunday. As an aside, maybe the media might even begin to report on it within it’s context.

BADABING

While I’m glad that the media is now reporting the murder of Kamil,the manner in which they are doing so is still deeply concerning. The fact is that he was attacked by four near-neighbours wearing Rangers/union jack tops. To ignore that information does no-one any good,and may in fact hinder the recollection of witnesses who have yet to come forward.

The Gombeen Man

British Military Intelligence tactics are at work here.

The Orange Order, Masonic Lodges and Unionism are working hand in hand with the Security Services.

Rangers and the Old Firm are a vehicle for domination of the establishment.

Celtic Plc, for reasons best known to themselves, have become embroiled in this. They’ve been banging the Unionist drum for years.

The victory parade to George Square. The assault on the Czech goalkeeper, the coordinated ambush in the tunnel at Ibrox and now the murder in Easterhouse.

That’s quite a week and yet we are led to believe it’s all the Scottish Government’s fault.

There is a bigger prize at stake and that’s the Union.

The graffiti and violence, police inaction and media silence is coordinated to create fear, divide and protect the Union.

I don’t do politics of any persuasion but these are textbook British dirty tricks, perfected in the Six Counties.

No doubt Celtic Plc and the SNP are infiltrated with Unionist sympathisers doing the Crown’s work on sly.

Don’t let them kid you.

Till Later.
