What fresh hell is this?
Crystal Palace urged to condemn Democratic Football Lads Alliance
I wonder if this publicity is good or bad for the group
I agree. They turned up around 6 months ago for a couple of home games. Straight away there was an opposition group out leafleting, and I never saw their faces again. Concerned this article might embolden them a bit.
These little shits briefly stepped forward during the time that the HF were boycotting matches as a group. Doubt they would try to raise their voices inside the ground now.
exactly. then guardian wades in and gives them a platform.
There's a Crystal Palace FLAF group
Yep, pretty sure that's who turned up subsequently with A4 leaflets and quite a match day presence. Never saw the fash mugs after that. I don't think I kept their literature unfortunately.
Incidentally, I did engage verbally briefly with the DFLA lot when I first spotted them. It's such a slippery setup. They claim to be opposing 'paedophilia by all peoples' (which is really a gateway to islamaphobia), concerned about unemployment (gateway to immigration fear-mongering), etc. They weren't going to be straighforward about anything. I've read about a couple of people being sucked in without realising they were getting involved with fascists. Fortunately they had the sense to scarper once they sussed it.
was down thornton heath yesterday, saw some dfla stickers.
all publicity is good publicity
They, the DFLA, were a mixed bunch but they've pretty much declined/been whittled down to their hardcore who are at best selective racists, unionists and vehemently anti left .The CP-DFLA twitter account has made an appearance recently CPFC DFLA (@CpfcDfla) | Twitter
MPs warn Palace of ‘racism and violence’ of Lads Alliance
This development was hinted at previously - see:
Britain's biggest morons burn cardboard Grenfell Tower on bonfire
In an unfortunate coincidence of timing, the following has also emerged:
Crystal Palace academy head of coaching David Muir resigns amid racism claim
Irrespective of the composition of those on the terraces (and those in charge of the football industry), the residential and shopping area around the stadium at Selhurst Park is, like the composition of those on the pitch representing the club, (curently) multi-racial.
One hopes that the incident reported yesterday by a member of the club's own staff does not represent the shape of things to come:
