Police have confirmed an incident in which a group dressed up like members of the Ku Klux Klan in a Co Down town in Northern Ireland is being investigated as a hate crime.

Photographs of the group outside an Islamic Centre in Newtownards emerged online over the weekend.

The incident was reported to the PSNI on Sunday afternoon at around 5pm, about an incident on Saturday night where a group was seen wearing the distinctive pointed-hooded costumes in the vicinity of Greenwell Street.


Inspector Richard Murray said: "We are also aware of images that are circulating that show people dressed as Ku Klux Klan members. "Our enquiries are ongoing, and we are treating this as a hate incident at this time. "Hate crime, in all its forms, is totally unacceptable. It is the responsibility of each and every one of us to ensure that we live in a society where diversity is respected."


In one of the images posted over the weekend, the group of around 10 people are pictured in a threatening pose, some with fists raised, outside the town's Islamic Centre.


Strangford Alliance MLA Kellie Armstrong called the photographs "unacceptable" and said she will be asking police to investigate. "I've seen the pictures on Facebook and social media of this group of men, women or whatever," she said. "Some people might try to say they were out for Halloween but I'd have to say if that's the case then these are certainly not the most appropriate costumes to be wearing."It is not appreciated by our community, it is not funny and it should definitely not be treated as a joke."

The Ku Klux Klan is a racist group established by white supremacists in the United States.

Ms Armstrong added: "Everyone knows the history of the Ku Klux Klan, what they stood for, the crimes the organisation committed and the connotations these outfits convey. This was not a mistake or an unfortunate choice of outfits. "I certainly hope the PSNI are looking into it and I would see this as a hate incident. "For someone to think these were a good ideas for costumes for Halloween, if that's what they actually are, is disgusting. That's not the image of Newtownards we want to be portrayed. "It's bad enough that these people thought it appropriate to parade around the centre of the town in these costumes, but to then actually stop and pose outside the Islamic Centre and Mosque is pathetic.


"CCTV cameras are installed all around the centre of Newtownards and these individuals will have been caught on camera and I will be urging police to study the footage." DUP MLA Peter Weir said those behind the stunt were "morons". "What sort of morons go about Newtownards dressed in KKK costumes?" he said. "That the same group were then photographed outside the Islamic Centre clearly shows malevolent intent." He added: "It is totally unacceptable."

In August 2017 a pig's head was left at the Islamic Centre's door and graffiti painted on the building.

About everywhere in Europe I ask, whose police are they? They should be used to protect our peoples and countries not BS.

Or do we just allow the left to hand over the country to these inbred third world religious fanatics?

Has anybody thought they might have just dressed up for Halloween? There was another case, I forgot where, where somebody dressed up as SS and they also made a huge fuss about it being a hate case and very "poor taste". But at the same time, those who dress up as serial killers, sluts and bimbos are good taste? Talk about double standards.

That's entirely possible.

This outrage reminds me of what happened a few years ago at a university in the United States. Hysterical students were triggered to see what they thought was a Klansman with a whip wandering around campus, and there were immediate displays of histrionics on social media. Turns out it was a Dominican friar wearing his habit, and what the students thought was a whip turned out to be his belt and rosary beads.

Perhaps some people are always looking for things to be offended by?

Some Universities in the USA are compratively heavily crowded by Hebrew Jews , it seems ;
up to one third of students at such Universities are attended by Hebrew Jews .

To provoke outrage at such Universities , it is easy by drawing a Golden Swastika :

Algemeiner means Commoner in German language , it appears the Hebrew Jews steal everything ...


University of Chicago
Chicago, Illinois
In recent years, the University of Chicago has hosted leading BDS supporters like Omar Barghouti, featured annual “Israel Apartheid Week” displays...


And for the American Blacks , it is likely the same with KKK resemblance .

In the first place, normal people holding our basic ideological views don't deliberately create such embarrassing spectacles. Such pathetic behavior is counterproductive. All of these incidents are fabricated by those promoting the Cultural Marxist agenda.

We have all we can do just trying to promote the truth and by setting good examples because the MSN is controlled by our enemies, and they are doing everything they can to destroy our credibility and silence us with their unscrupulous reporting.
