“Leave Football And Circle Jerk To Hitler”: An Open Letter To The Zenit Racists

A Zenit St Petersburg supporters group called Landscrona recently provoked widespread disgust for publishing an open letter to the club demanding that non-white and gay footballers be excluded from the team.

We asked Joseph Guthrie to respond with an open letter of his own and here, writing as The Auracle, he gives it to the racist scumbags with both barrels.

To whom it may concern:

I’m not going to waste any time with pleasantries because frankly, you deserve none.  Obviously, there’s a realm within the confines of your own anal cavity where you can still expect to be shown the highest respect after writing something like that abhorrent, backward-ass, contradictory manifesto that you penned but here on Earth where the decent people dwell among the assholes like your little affront for Stormfront (and I’m not talking about the UK-based premium Apple reseller of the same name), that s*** is thoroughly unacceptable and utterly laughable.  I’ve taken the time to read your pitiful temper-tantrum and really, I feel your open letter deserves a proper response.  A response that will act as a brutal lesson; that you should think about the ramifications of what you’re saying before you decide to embarrass yourselves.  Consider me a humble representative of all people – Russian or otherwise – that just want to get on with the game and not worry about expending precious energy chanting down idiotic, dinosaur-esque people like you when we could be using it to support our respective clubs and the game of football as a whole.  Trouble is: we can’t do that because you racist, bigoted, knuckle-dragging pr***s keep getting in the way of a positive movement and sometimes, passive aggression simply doesn’t work.  Fortunately, I’m taking your nonsense and chucking it right back in the same direction the bananas you throw came from.  I hope you’re hungry because I’m going to feed you some serious food for thought.

You start off your manifesto after you all finished your pity-party/gangbang and w***ing off to pictures of some random Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan by saying that you need to “strengthen your concepts in a certain way.”  How exactly does the most racist club in Russia “strengthen” it’s “concepts” apart from waving bananas at Roberto Carlos?  It gives me great pleasure to point out that your club is one of the most backwards in all of sport, never mind football and you all clearly have the memory span of a goldfish (no doubt a racist one).  When you finish your boring drivel about what direction the club should be going and what the club should be doing – completely ignoring the fact that the game of football has changed and virtually every single club in the world has been forced to change along with it – you start off your section entitled “Zenith & black players” with ‘We are not racists.’  That is – and I’m quoting Karl Pilkington here – bulls***.  You are incredibly racist.  Your former manager in Dick Advocaat and every black player playing in the Russian Premier League from Christopher Samba to Vagner Love have not only acknowledged your despicable presence, they acknowledge you as a horrible blemish on the Russian game.

The only thing more revolting than that pitiful Zenith & black players section is the one entitled “The Mentality of the (human).”  I’m sorry… did you think you could broadcast your fascist rubbish and get away with it?  I’m convinced you do because the last time I saw a shortlist of requirements like yours for what makes a great candidate for a certain organization [like yours], I was reading up on the National Socialist German Workers party and how they actively sought to “purify” their ranks by striving to create an Aryan race.  They actively persecuted and/or imposed extreme forms of exclusionary segregation upon blacks and homosexuals.  Ringing any bells?  It should do because you’re proposing to do the exact same things the Nazis did, short of extreme violence and creating your own holocaust.  Speaking of that shortlist, I’m willing to bet my last Euro that a rather large percentage of Landskrona wouldn’t even meet the criteria you’ve set out, let alone pass for match fitness.  Proper behaviour in daily life, respect for people, publically demonstrating addiction to alcohol or cigarettes?  You’re kidding me, right?  If we sat your lot in front of an independent judiciary to review your worthiness for being a member of the Zenith, you lot would be laughed out of the bloody building.  Here’s a pro tip: it’s probably a great idea to make damn sure that you meet your own standards before holding others to account.

You claim not to be Nationalist but you only want players that represent the “cultural values” of your St. Petersburg.  You claim not to be racist and yet you threaten your club’s manager every time you catch wind that he’s about to sign a black player; lest we forget the amount of monkey chants and banana chucking you’ve subjected the oppositions’ black players to.  How ironic is it that you refer to black players as ‘monkeys’ when it is you all that continue to act like a pack of rabid gorillas.  How funny that you don’t want homosexual players representing the Zenith and yet there are gangs of Zenit ultras in the stands, all shirtless and rubbing up on each other for ninety minutes. Come come now… surely you can agree that the latter is quite homo-erotic?  You conclude the manifesto by saying that you don’t believe your vision is absolute dogma and this just underlines how deluded you idiots are.  Do you even know the definition of dogma?  Dogma is known as “a principle or set of principles laid down by an authority as incontrovertibly true.”  You hold your manifesto and the beliefs within it to be absolutely true and to be in the best interest for every Zenit supporter, let alone the entire city of St Petersburg.  Your manifesto is your neo-Nazi, ultra fascist, and deeply racist dogma manifest.

With all this said, I have a perfect solution for you to consider: break away from the club.  Your defiance will whittle away into nothing more than apathy and then you’ll start to see that you can’t stem the tide of direction Zenit St Petersburg and every other club in the world is moving in: toward a post-racial society that is already multicultural in its makeup but is shedding the dead weight of yester century and starts to embrace how beautiful the world is without the ugliness of racism and other various forms of bigotry.  Yes, I suggest you break away from the club and form a new one, where you can all circle jerk to pictures of Adolf Hitler and officers of the Gestapo that took pride in making people’s lives a living hell for reasons beyond their control: their ethnicity and/or sexual orientation.

Break away from Zenit St Petersburg.  You can’t see that your manifesto is killing the club that you claim to love so much so do the club you love and football supporters around the world a favour and f*** right off out of the Russian top flight; out of UEFA; out of FIFA.

Oh, and take Platini and Blatter with you.  We don’t want their racism-apologist, misogynistic, greed-driven asses but it would appear their actions and views fit right in with the overall direction of your manifesto.


A football fan that loves football, not ugly isms and schisms.

P.S. As a proud Manchester United supporter, I hope Liverpool kick your f***ing faces in and dump you out of Europe faster than the old Soviets besieged Nazi Berlin during World War II.  I hope Rahim Sterling, Glen Johnson (the racist apologist that he is), and every other black Liverpool player pumps your team so hard, you’ll wish you never competed in a European competition ever again.  Anything to see the back of you sorry excuses for human beings. Tara, t*** stains.

  1. Dear white race traitors and non-white scum,

    Please leave Europe if you’re so offended by us wanting our lands and our sports teams back. We won’t miss you, I promise. Nobody will. Go live in Central Africa or Zimbabwe, I’m sure they’ll LOVE you there.


    The intelligent portion of the white race.

  2. As editor of the Cutter it is my job to either approve or reject the comments made beneath each article (to filter out any spam or offensive responses). I thought long and hard whether to publish Darthkuriboh’s comments above but my personal view is that such vile ignorance should be put front and centre to remind ourselves that such mentalities exist amongst us.

    • Dear Daisey cunter, Odd that you should have to think so long and hard about publishing Darthkuriboh’s letter. It’s the only bit of sense in this lame excuse for a web site. Sorry to have to tax your brain again with my response, not that I give a rats arse if you publish my letter or not. It’s meant for your eyes, which I know it will reach. Please have a painful death.

  3. This subject requires only minimal analysis. Merely compare the Britain of 150 years ago to the one today. What’s changed?

  4. Can you explain the logic behind your position Mr Liberal?

    • If you can’t grasp the logic behind my analogies, then I’m afraid the concept of decency and equality is beyond your mental station.

      This isn’t a “liberal” thing. This isn’t a “conservative” thing. Treating a human being with decency and respect is a common fucking sense thing and you clearly seem to lack a lot of common fucking sense.

      Are we clear? Shut your pie hole, that was a rhetorical question.

  5. Why would anyone take such a letter seriously? It’s packed from the start with vile language and insults. It’s clearly designed to be a 1-sided rant, sure, but what a total lack of class. It’s clear this guy isn’t interested in anything but stirring the pot further. Fighting racism and bigotry with more racism and bigotry seems like a stupid tactic.

    • “Fighting racism & bigotry with more racism & bigotry seems like a stupid tactic.”

      But not as stupid as calling me a bigot and a racist when I’ve not said anything bigoted or racist in my response to the bigoted, Nazi-esque idiots in Saint Petersburg. You keep apologising for them, mate. I’ll keep showing them up for the ignorant, intolerable, pathetic human beings that they are.

      On your bike, fool.

  6. @Daisy Cutter. You should pack your bags and move to some other country in Africa and make it multi cult. As a European i’m tired of being a minority in my own country…

  7. I think a lot of the comments here only further highlight the ignorance rampant in Europe today.

    If you were educated you’d understand that the western tradition is based on Greco-Roman society and that the Greeks didn’t care about race. Sure they had slaves but their slaves were defined by their class and not their skin colour. And if European extremists are as regressive as they profess to be would you want to go back to the old ways? The days when uneducated lower class scum like Zenit fans were enslaved by the higher classes?

  8. Notice none of the cowards leaving their bigoted views in comments gave their real name
