Alex Kurtagic: The BBC reports the jailing today of Lavinia Olmazu, ‘a leading campaigner for the rights of Romany Gypsies’ in the United Kingdom. Until last year, Olmazu was involved with charities and local authorities, including the Harringey and Waltham Forest councils in London.
It seems Olmazu’s approach to advancing the interests of her ethnic community was not confined to legal ones: together with her partner, Alin Enachi, both part of a gang of eight, she set up a scam involving 172 ‘members of the Romanian community’, whom she supplied with false documents and employment references, while also filing false claims for child tax credits, working tax credits, and child benefits. The total value of the scam over two years is reported to have been £2,900,000, or $4,000,000.
Olmazu’s double role as a Romany Gypsy human rights campaigner and a member of a Romany Gypsy criminal gang designed to help co-ethnics is interesting to say the least. It betrays a self-conception as a member of a predatory ethnic collective who views its host society, and by extension its citizens, as a resource to be amorally and cunningly exploited. It also constitutes further evidence of the fact that non-White immigrants view the egalitarian discourse promoted by our liberal establishment as a tool for resource acquisition, and not as something that they really believe in. When one sees cases like that of Olmazu, one cannot but imagine that said non-White immigrants probably cannot believe how stupid Westerners are to allow them entry, rights, and even privileges that their own co-ethnics would never dream of granting to Westerners. There is no question that far from being grateful to her British fellow citizens for the opportunities that they gave her to be a respected professional living in a safe and prosperous country, Olmazu held them in contempt, and laughed at them by taking from them by hook and by crook for two years.
I could not help but remember Kevin MacDonald’s essay, Diaspora Peoples, which discusses Gypsies, among others. For MacDonald, Gypsies are noted for their specialization in low-status occupations and in extracting fairly low amounts of resources often via various forms of chicanery practiced on the majority population.
Indeed, for a scam operation involving 180 people, $4,000,000 is relatively trivial.
Also interesting is the structure of the BBC report. It offers straight reporting up until the final paragraph, where we suddenly encounter a rather perplexing statement from detective constable Melanie Groves of the Metropolitan police, who is quoted as saying: ‘This is a clear case of Roma families who wished to improve their lives but were prevented from doing so by being exploited by their own people.’
Eh? Did not the report say in its opening paragraph that those same Roma were actively involved in the scam? It seems to me that they were as much the exploiters as the gang leaders who gave them the means to defraud the tax and benefits system, and that the victims were the British taxpayers. Why is the Metropolitan police going out of its way to conceal Romany criminality? Is it because they fear accusations of racism? Was not the character of the gypsy scam racist, given that it consciously, cynically, and deliberately aimed to benefit fellow gypsies at the expense of everyone else?
The very incongruousness of the Groves quote, and its placement within the article, betrays, once again, the BBC’s complicity with the immigration conspiracy.
This is nothing new for readers of this website, of course, but such obvious perfidy cannot be allowed to pass without comment.
