Race-hate vile hoax

Race-hate group's vile Facebook missing child hoax

From the Croydon Advertiser:

The poster claiming a 6-year-old girl was kidnapped in Croydon is a sick hoax

A POSTER appealing for the safe return of a “kidnapped” six-year-old girl is a sick hoax peddled by a race-hate group.

The poster, circulated to thousands of people via social media sites including Facebook, is titled ‘missing person’ and claims a girl named Amy Hamilton “is believed to have been kidnapped by an Asian grooming gang”.

The message continues: “She’s 6 years old and was last seen in the Croydon area of London, wearing a pink top and blue jeans.”

However, no child named Amy Hamilton is missing from the London region or anywhere else in the UK.

The photograph on the poster is actually a painting, taken from an artist's Flickr page.

The hoax is the work of "Britons against Left-wing Extremism", a far-right group which publishes material via a blog called the Daily Bale.

The perpatrators have also bragged on their Twitter account, about how many timed the vile post has been shared.

A tweet posted on Monday read: "An amazing 5000 people shared our Amy Hamilton, Missing poster on Facebook. Lets hope they catch the Asians responsible for taking her."

As if there isn't enough misery from real cases of missing and exploited children.  

Let's hope they catch the racist idiots responsible for manufacturing such a hateful and irresponsible lie.
