John Mann's Racist Hypocrisy - whilst opposing ‘anti-Semitism’ he fans the flames of racism against Roma and Gypsies
How is one to understand the fact that John Mann MP, who is Chair of the Parliamentary Committee Agains Anti-Semitism is a common and garden racist when it comes to Travellers, Gypsies and Roma?
In ‘the Bassetlaw anti-social behaviour handbook – your guide to the law’, written by Mann, advice is given to his constituents on how to deal with ‘loitering by youths’, ‘graffiti’, ‘neighbours from hell’, ‘alcohol’ – and ‘travellers’. In other words Travellers, Gypsies and Roma are one more social nuisance to be dealt with by way of an ASBO.
|Strangely Mann's opposition to 'antisemitism' doesn't prevent him giving advice on how to deal with Gypsies|
In the section on ‘Travellers’ there is a big, bold strapline saying “the Police have powers to remove any gypsies and travellers”. Imagine if you were to substitute ‘Jews’ for ‘gypsies and travellers’. It might be the first substantive evidence of anti-Semitism in the Labour Party!
|Anti-Roma racism in Britain is over 6 times as high as anti-semitism. In Italy 82% of the population have racist attitudes to Roma - it is no surprise that John Mann indulges in racism against Roma whilst purporting to oppose antisemitism|
After the existence of Mann’s racist booklet was revealed Traveller Times reported that the ‘Parliamentary group for anti-Semitism, which Mann chairs, pulled out of a debate on Gypsies, Roma and Travellers “with no explanation” after failing to answer questions on Mann’s booklet
When Mann was contacted by Traveller Times Mann stood by the booklet, 20,000 of which he claimed had been distributed. Mann claimed not to understand why his booklet is racially offensive. Since Romani Gypsies and Irish Travellers are protected, like Jews, under the Equality Act 2010, he must know that his booklet contravenes that Act as well as being simply racist and offensive in itself.

The explanation for Mann’s behaviour is quite simple. Mann’s concern with ‘anti-Semitism’ is related to support for Zionism and the Israeli state. The campaign which he has fronted over ‘anti-Semitism’ has always been about criticism of Israel not hate of Jews.
|Gypsy children like these were deported like Jewish children to Auschwitz and gassed - however it is inconvenient today to remember that the Holocaust also murdered Gypsies.|
We live in times when anti-Roma hate is rising fast. In Italy the Interior Minister, Matteo Salvini has threatened to expel thousands of Roma and create a register of those who remain. Mann's behaviour fits into the increasing hostility and overt racism towards Gypsies. Opposition to fake 'antisemitism' is easy for racists like Mann.
The Zionist movement has always considered the Holocaust as unique and opposed any attempt to generalise from the Nazi Holocaust to anti-racism as a universal principle. In the words of Professor Yehuda Bauer of the Hebrew University Jerusalem and Yad Vashem, ‘Roma were not Jews, therefore there was no need to murder all of them’, his assumption being that the Nazis only intended to wipe out the Jews. [Yehuda Bauer, "Jews. Gypsies. Slavs: Policies of the Third Reich." UNESCO Yearbook on Peace and Conflict Studies 1985 (Paris, 1987), p. 86]
Bauer elaborated his views in a debate with the late Sybil Milton [The History Teacher, Vol. 25, No. 4. (Aug., 1992), pp. 513-521] Milton showed that all Bauer’s assumptions concerning the Gypsies and the Holocaust were based upon Nazi stereotypes, for example that it was only itinerant gypsies who caused social problems who were the target for elimination.
Sybil Milton, senior historian at the US Holocaust Museum wrote, ‘the percentage of Gypsy mortality was approximately the same as the percentage of Jewish mortality in the Holocaust.’ (Gypsies and the Holocaust, The History Teacher, Vol. 24, No. 4. (Aug., 1991), p. 377). Approximately half a million Gypsies and Roma were murdered in the Holocaust. Despite this the fate of the Gypsies has been comprehensively ignored and the historical narrative distorted.
The Holocaust has become an ideological weapon deployed by Zionism against the Palestinians. The Holocaust is seen as the primary justification for a Jewish state. An ethno-religious state is an oddity that went out with the French Revolution. Israel’s exceptional status owes a great deal to the Nazi murder of six million Jews.
Zionism has been quick to argue that although the Nazis had many victims, only one group were the victim of genocide – the Jews. As Milton noted although the diary of Adam Czerniakow, the head of the Warsaw Ghetto Judenrat recorded the presence of both German and Polish Gypsies in the Warsaw ghetto, Professor Yisrael Gutman’s comprehensive study ‘avoids even passing mention of them’. [The Jews of Warsaw,:Ghetto Underground Revolt, Brighton, England. 1982]. Gutman was based at Yad Vashem, Israel’s Holocaust Propaganda Museum.

It is ironic that John Mann, Chair of the All Parliamentary Group on Anti-Semitism and the person who accused Ken Livingstone of being a Hitler apologist, is revealed as an anti-Gypsy bigot and racist.
|John Mann was the 'best friend, best man and political ally' of the racist New Labour Immigration Minister Phil Woolas|
However it isn’t really that surprising. Mann was a strong supporter of racist New Labour Immigration Minister Phil Woolas. Woolas, who told a number of outrageous lies about his Lib-Dem opponent in 2010 was the only MP in living memory to have his election result nullified by an election court for electoral fraud. Amongst the emails uncovered was one from his election agent Joe Fitzpatrick which stated ‘If we don't get the white folk angry he [Woolas]'s gone.’ Stirring up racism was seen as crucial to a Woolas victory.

Following the decision of the High Court to annul the election, Harriet Harman as acting Labour Party leader took the decision to withdraw Labour’s support for Woolas in his legal battle. She rightly decided that the facts that were found by the High Court, his clear lying and appeal to white racism, could not be condoned by the Labour Party even if legally he might have a case. John Mann, his best friend and best man at his wedding disagreed. Mann, who knew Woolas from their days in student politics, had no problem with Woolas’s racism or his record of hostility to asylum seekers and refugees.
|John Mann was outraged when his racist friend, Phil Woolas, had his funding cut off by the Labour Party|
Harriet Harman’s actions caused an uproar in the Parliamentary Labour Party and one of his main backers was – John Mann! It would seem that some forms of racism are more acceptable to this racist opportunist. ‘Anti-Semitism’ is verboten but a bit of anti-gypsy racism, hostility to refugees and Islamaphobia is perfectly acceptable to this hypocrite.
