Racism in association football (known in the US as soccer) is the abuse of players, officials and fans because of their skin colour, nationality, religion or ethnicity. Some may be targeted (also) because of their association with an opposing team. However, there have been instances of individuals being targeted by their own fans.

Disgraced ex-scout owns up to vile Facebook posts

But Aakjaer denies the messages were racist

Disgraced Manchester United scout Torben Aakjaer yesterday admitted to posting racist messages on Facebook but insisted that he was not a racist.

Aakjaer was sacked on Wednesday night after the Guardian discovered offensive images and messages about Muslims on his Facebook account.

He used his social media account to support Denmark closing its borders and putting “extra personnel on every crossover and exit so all that eastern Europe dirt and shit can be kept out,” as well as a message of support for right-wing Dansk Folkeparti’s views on border control.

Despite initially saying he was “hacked by someone who doesn’t like me or Manchester United,” the former scout has now owned up to the messages — one a picture of six pigs with the caption: “It’s time to deploy our secret weapons against Islamists,” — blaming the media for portraying him as a racist.

He told Danish newspapers: “I do understand if people are offended by that comment (calling eastern Europeans dirt and shit,) but I think it’s just my statement to the article linked to. It’s not a racist comment. But I do understand Manchester United terminating my contract when they get it presented this way.” …

“If there was anything racist in my comments I’m sure Facebook would have deleted it or I would have been reported by people. But that has never happened.”

No, Mr Aakjaer, you certainly can not be sure about Facebook deleting that.

The British racists and Adolf Hitler admirers, National Action, have their own, undeleted, Facebook page.

So have their fellow nazis, the English Defense League.

So have yet more nazis, Britain First.

So has Marine Le Pen, fuehrer of the National Front in France.

So have the Dutch Third Reich nostalgics, the Nederlandse Volksunie.

Talking about the Netherlands: fans of Dutch xenophobic politician Geert Wilders have a Facebook page on which recently setting mosques on fire was advocated.

The Golden Dawn neo-nazis of Greece extensively use Facebook for their propaganda.

Aakjaer’s Facebook also contained a conversation with a friend about the Charlie Hebdo massacre in which his friend said that he hopes France “throws the rest of all that shit they have in their country out.”

Aakjaer replied: “Couldn’t agree more. Let’s hope other countries including our beloved Denmark follows that example efficiently.”

Asked why United had sacked him he said: “I don’t think they can live with the publicity about this. I recognise that some of my comments should have been put out better but I do stand with the things I have written.”

The Manchester club released a statement saying they had “terminated our association with Mr Aakjaer.”
