Last week the Barnsley Chronicle published an article about a veteran of the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts who had been assaulted after returning from a tour of duty:
“A Barnsley soldier was attacked in the street, knocked unconscious and then repeatedly stamped and kicked in the face and head – just hours after getting home.”
“The savage, brutal and unprovoked attack on the 28-year-old in a terraced street in the town centre has left witnesses shaken and horrified.”
With Barnsley’s ethnic mix, it didn’t take long for the far-right scumbags of the BNP and EDL to launch a 100% evidence-free smear that ‘the Muslamics’ were responsible for the attack:
One problem … the attackers were white!
Particular credit to the Chronicle for their direct rebuttal.
