So this guy is racist but Mulims burning poppies and shouting at dead soldiers coffins are "protesting"

You see there is a difference between spraying racist graffiti and the act of burning a poppy made out of paper right? Soldiers aren't a race. Are you really that stupid?
I'm not condoning the former soldier's behaviour at all. Before you label him as a "racist" please give some thought to what this man has been through recently. Shot at, blown up, friends blown to pieces and killedâ¦â¦ "A racist" is a very quick, easy and predictable label. My grandfather wasn't so keen on Germans. Nor was he keen on the Japanese (or the French). Was he a racist too??

Well you are though, if you bothered to read into the case, Mr Parkes left the army in 1993 after serving in Northern Ireland. His solicitor claims he suffers from PTSD which was never treated.
As the prosecution point out:
Sharon Jomaal, prosecuting, said: "He left a severed pig's head with Allah written along the side which was attached the front gate." She said he also wrote a racist slur in red spray paint along the front of the mosque. Parkes later posted a picture of himself at the scene on Facebook.http://www.thisisgloucestershire.co.uk/ ... story.html
