From what I was reading, it seems that Poles and other Slavic groups are the favorite punching bag of the British nationalists like Hispanics are ours. Makes it all the more fucked up for me to see people with Slavic surnames engaging in that shit here. I say that as someone who has Slavic immigrant cousins as well as ancestors. Was very relieved to see one of my cousins I met this summer in Slovakia can’t stand Trump. He posted the story about how the Germans kicked out Trump’s grandfather and my response was that Germany’s gain became our loss, he agreed.

Something I remember noticing in the runup to the Brexit vote in 2016 was a good deal of anti-Slavic bigotry being openly expressed in the comments sections of the UK tabloids - the bulk of it was aimed at Poles and to a lesser extent, Czechs and Slovaks. It was pretty vicious, to put it mildly.
