THE SCUM Newspaper attacked North West MEP candidate Tommy Robinson yesterday for having a selfie with Wayne Rooney during a night out in Liverpool, despite the paper being universally hated in Merseyside.
Robinson, 36 had just finished rallies in Merseyside and clocked off for a few drinks in Liverpool’s city centre before heading home at 11pm.
Tommy had the selfie with Rooney’s brother Graham in The Liverpool Bar, as a typical lad having a few drinks on a night out, however, The Sun slammed him and claimed he was ‘gurning’ and added that Wayne was ‘livid’ over the videos.
The Sun claimed that Wayne Rooney “was raging” over the selfie with working-class champion Tommy, but the people of Liverpool welcomed Tommy with open arms and party-goers stopped for selfies all night long.
One Twitter user said: “If they are going to say ‘Tommy Robinson the EDL founder’. wouldn’t it be fair to say ‘Wayne Rooney the adulterer?’
Rooney, who was slammed in 2004 by the people of Merseyside after he gave a series of exclusive interviews to The Sun, that’s hated in Liverpool.
Wayne Rooney’s took more than £250,000 to appear in the newspaper and locals hit back following the infamous 1989 coverage of the Hillsborough disaster.
The families of Hillsborough victims rejected the paper’s apology and others, including the Everton supporters’ group, called on Rooney to donate the proceeds of the interviews to charity.
Phil Hammond, chairman of the Hillsborough Family Support Group, who lost his 14-year-old son Philip in the tragedy, said the Sun’s apology was “too little, and 15 years too late.
“They think that because they’ve got a big name on board people in Liverpool will now start to buy the paper, but we’re not that stupid.”
He called on Rooney to donate the £250,000 to the Hillsborough Foundation back in 2004.
The Sun pleaded with readers on Merseyside to forgive it for a “terrible mistake”, and said Rooney did not deserve to be vilified for associating with the paper.
“We long ago apologised publicly to the victims’ families, friends and to the city of Liverpool for our awful error,” it said. “We gladly repeat that apology today: fully, openly, honestly and without reservation.
“The Sun of 2004 no more deserves to be hated on Merseyside than Wayne Rooney does.”
Rooney’s took more than £250,000 to appear in the newspaper and locals hit back following the infamous 1989 coverage of the Hillsborough disaster.
The Sun also sided with the establishment when Tommy Robinson was jailed last year describing Tommy as a ‘nasty thug’ who deserved to be jailed.
The ‘newspaper’ published a vile editorial claiming that our Tommy was a ‘nasty thug and a grandstanding idiot.’
The News UK title, who also owned News of The World, the paper that hacked phones of families of 7/7 bombing victims said that ‘He is not a freedom fighter Nor is he the hero he is made out to be in the sewer which social media has become.’
Murdoch’s paper that smeared Hillsborough victims added ‘Nor is he a “reporter” fearlessly exposing an establishment cover-up of rapes by gangs of Asian men, that scandal has been exposed by actual journalists.’
They added: ‘Supporters say he was locked up too hastily and for too long. We have no sympathy and claimed the reporting restrictions were ‘neither unusual or a PC cover-up.’
They then made a strange U-Turn and said “Yes our legal system IS too secretive.” and claimed, “but it was crucial in the interests of justice” then they implied #FreeTommy supporters were idiots by saying “Its time his supporters grasped it.”
The Sun called Social Media a ‘sewer’ but fake news Sun hacks were happy to steal one of Politicalite’s quotes.
Sun on Sunday’s Political Editor David Wooding also tweeted about Stephanie Finnegan – the journalist who doxxed Tommy Robinson by publishing a former address that she believed to be Robinson’s after she appeared on the BBC Asian Network.
Wicked Wooding said of her: “She still has far more skills than a man with an agenda playing at being a journalism, (actually it’s Journalist – mate) and breaking the law, in order to further a political agenda. And more nous than people who fall for this con.”
Following ‘abuse’ Finnegan received, establishment Sun hack David Wooding said: “We should applaud this young journalist for doing her job in the face of appalling abuse. Another example of the Wild West social media running amok while politicians want to restrict trained professionals even more.”
Its no surprise the scum at The Sun would side with the Establishment – the paper infamously smeared the Hillsborough victims after the 1989 disaster running the vilest frontpage in history.
They claimed they spoke ‘The Truth’ and said Liverpool fans urinated on police, pick-pocketed dead victims and prevented brave PCs giving the kiss of life.”
According to a book on the disaster, ‘Stick it Up Your Punter – the Rise and Fall of the Sun’ Mackenzie sat for a full half hour thinking about the front page layout.
He considered two headlines, one that was rejected reading “You Scum”, and the one that was eventually used – and was to prove the biggest disaster for the paper’s reputation and sales “The Truth”.
“A team of about 18 journalists and photographers had been sent to cover the story, and although reporter Harry Arnold sought out MacKenzie to caution against reporting allegations as truth, MacKenzie pressed on.”
Under the headline “The Truth” there were three subheadings:
Some fans picked pockets of victims
Some fans urinated on the brave cops
Some fans beat up PCs giving the kiss of life
The story read as follows: “Drunken Liverpool fans viciously attacked rescue workers as they tried to revive victims of the Hillsborough soccer disaster, it was revealed last night.
“Police officers, firemen and ambulance crew were punched, kicked and urinated upon by a hooligan element in the crowd.
“Some thugs rifled the pockets of injured fans as they were stretched out unconscious on the pitch.
“Sheffield MP Irvine Patnick revealed that in one shameful episode a gang of Liverpool fans noticed that the blouse of a girl.
trampled to death had risen above her breasts.
“As a policeman struggled in vain to revive her, the mob jeered: ‘Throw her up here and we will **** her’”
The story went on: “One furious policeman who witnessed Saturday’s carnage stormed: ‘As we struggled in appalling conditions to save lives, fans standing further up the terrace were openly urinating on us and the bodies of the dead.”
A ‘high-ranking’ police officer was quoted as saying: “The fans were just acting like animals. My men faced a double hell – the disaster and the fury of the fans who attacked us.”
Kenny Dalglish, then Liverpool manager, later addressed the story in his autobiography:
“When the Sun came out with the story about Liverpool fans being drunk and unruly underneath a headline ‘The Truth,’ the reaction on Merseyside was one of complete outrage.
Newsagents stopped stocking the Sun. People wouldn’t mention its name. They were burning copies of it. Anyone representing the Sun was abused.
“Sun reporters and photographers would lie, telling people they worked for the Liverpool Post and Echo. There was a lot of harassment of them because of what had been written. The Star had gone a bit strong as well, but they apologised the next day. They knew the story had no foundation. Kelvin MacKenzie, the Sun’s editor, even called me up.
“‘How can we correct the situation?” he said.
“‘You know that big headline – ‘The Truth’,’ I replied. ‘All you have to do is put ‘We lied’ in the same size. Then you might be all right.’
“Mackenzie said: ‘I cannot do that.’
“‘Well,’ I replied, ‘I cannot help you then.’
“That was it. I put the phone down. Merseysiders were outraged by the Sun. A great many still are.”
Four years later in 1993, Kelvin MacKenzie went public for the first time about the calamitous decision to call Liverpudlians liars and thieves who preyed off the dying and dead.
“I regret Hillsborough,” he said. “It was a fundamental mistake. The mistake have I believed what an MP said.
It was a Tory MP. If he had not said it and the chief superintendent had not agreed with it, we would not have gone with it,” he told the Commons national heritage committee in January 1993.
However, the Hillsborough survivors’ felt his words amounted to a less than sufficient apology.
The Establishment smeared the Hillsborough victims back then and now The Sun is doing the same.
The Sun is supposed to represent working class people – their readers are white van men – the builders, the joiners, the tradesmen, the apprentices THE WORKING MEN of Britain.
The Sun sides with the Establishment – they work for the Tory Government and will never honestly represent the people of working-class Britain.
Tommy Robinson is our working class hero, he speaks the TRUTH about the scandals blighting working-class Britain. The Sun lies and smears us and its reporters smear our Tommy.
In America, News Corp-owned Fox News, which also owns The Sun has told the truth about Tommy Robinson, so why can’t The Sun? … because they work for the British Establishment that has illegally jailed Tommy Robinson without a fair trial and is now trying to stop him becoming your MEP.
