*THIS IS AN OPEN LETTER FROM THE CPFC DFLA AND THE DFLA AS A WHOLE*
To the Crystal Palace football club’s directors, chief executive and manager.
In response to the open letter that has appeared in the Guardian newspaper.
The open letter above states that the DFLA should not be made welcome at the football club.
This is in reference to the DFLA and its followers the same DFLA who unequivocally condemned the Christchurch attack on our social media platforms with an official statement, the same DFLA who laid flowers at the New Zealand embassy,
The DFLA who speak out against racism in football whenever it rears its ugly head, we even hand out a leaflet highlighting the issue,
We speak out against all forms of child abuse and do not target one group,
We had 3 Muslim women join one of our demos and welcomed them with open arms,
We the DFLA who are out on the streets of Birmingham every single week assisting in feeding and clothing the homeless and in Coventry and South Wales and are looking to expand this to London and beyond and help anyone no matter what ethnicity or creed.
The DFLA who praised Muslims who sell poppies and a mosque that provided help and shelter for the homeless in Birmingham, We have spoken out about the Windrush scandal and will continue do so, the same DFLA who campaigned tirelessly to get justice for the families of the IRA pub bombings in Birmingham and have helped raise over £100k to help fund the cause.
We are the people who have handed a letter to 10 Downing Street asking for more to be done about the knife crime epidemic and the cuts to the police, we are people who campaign for our veterans suffering from PTSD, people who are appalled by the antisemitism in the political arena, people who have spoken out about National action, a far-right extremist group, we are the people who commemorated national holocaust day, people who have had enough of our media who are biased and certain newspapers who make things up or stigmatise black players and are complicit in the fight against racism,
We are people who are amazed that a politically motivated group like ‘stand up to racism’ (SUTR) are allowed to spread lies and slander and support the identity politics that certain MPs use,
SUTR are using the shocking events in New Zealand to attack normal working class people like us, SUTR who are selective in what they stand up against and hand out leaflets at football grounds that are full of lies about us and we have clear proof of this being the case,
Especially the leaflet they hand out a Selhurst park about us that is full of complete lies and slanderous content, it states Tommy Robinson is central to the DFLA, but in fact he is nothing to do with our organisation, and we know that SUTR know this as we have a recording of a SUTR meeting where they clearly state he isn’t! which was incidentally attended by the SUTR man who hands out the leaflets at palace!
Here’s Michael Bradbury ex Socialist workers party now SUTR activist speaking at said meeting;
And here’s the leaflet full of complete lies handed out a Selhurst Park in the following weeks by someone who was at the meeting;
This far left consortium of SUTR, union leaders, the Socialist worker’s party and ‘Momentum’ the bullies and brains behind the antisemitic labour party work together with groups such as football lads against fascism (FLAF) who are riddled with IRA sympathisers, and they have the gall to call us racist and Nazis!
The same councillors who have signed this letter belong to these organisations.
But let us make it clear the people of the DFLA will not shy away from speaking out about Islamic fundamentalists and returning jihadists and our borders being breached by people that we have no clue where they’re from or what their intentions are, that is not being anti-Muslim or racist its called not being complicit and having major concerns for this countries security and well being.
We do NOT tar everybody with the same brush.
We are most definitely not like groups of bygone eras who were no doubt far right and had agendas, we do not tolerate racism, we have many black, Jewish, Irish, mixed race and Asian members in the DFLA as well as in the Palace group, They are disgusted and throw back these slanderous leaflets that the SUTR activists at Selhurst park hand out to them.
We even write articles on racism in football!
We are ultimately a pressure group who are fed up with the state of this country and the clear betrayal of democracy we see by our government at this time, over leaving the EU.
We just want our children and grandkids to grow up in a safer environment within a less divided society.
We have proof of all of the above and would welcome a chance to come and sit down and answer any questions you may have, we have no hidden agenda unlike SUTR who are nothing more than a political pawn for the momentum led Labour party who use bullying tactics such as this and get their friends at the Guardian to print this diatribe, they do not care about who they slander as long as they shut down anyone who dares speak out against them and their political agenda and in fact do more damage to the anti-racist cause than good, and are obviously the main instigators of this slanderous letter.
If you hadn’t noticed ‘far right’ has become the new buzz word along with calling people racists, fascists or Nazis, all with the main aim of shutting people down who dare speak out,
But ultimately using these words so frequently has made the terms redundant and they have no credence when they deserved to be used in rightful instances anymore.
Anyone who voted leave is called far right by these people for god’s sake!
The Palace DFLA followers, myself included have been palace fans for many years and our heroes from kids and up until now range from black players like Hillaire, Ian Wright, Zaha and Muslim players like sakho and Souare.
We the DFLA are passionate about our country, we are against racism and extremism in all its forms and we will stand up for what is right.
We will not let these far-left groups try and politicise football and use anti-racism as a tool to push their political ideals.
We really do hope you take time to read all the articles in this letter and visit our website,
We do not have anything to hide or a hidden agenda.
We look forward to hearing from you.
