The Roma are culturally nomadic thieves and have been for centuries. They are proud of it. They subsist on thievery including fraud, also begging and the kindness of fools like liberals in the West taking them in as refugees from ostensible "persecution" by locals who know their ways. Is it now forbidden to discriminate against thieves? Since the Welfare state is based on thievery from one set of citizens to gratify another, are Roma/gypsies just helping themselves to what the government wants to give them anyway?
