Cymedrolwr: Gwahanglwyf Dros Grist
Hamachaws a ddywedodd:Un bryfoclyd fu Rod Liddle erioed. Hiliol? Tyfa fyny. Mae na fwy o hiliaeth yng nghefn gwlad Cymru na sy na ar dudalenna'r Spectator.
The overwhelming majority of street crime, knife crime, gun crime, robbery and crimes of sexual violence in London is carried out by young men from the African-Caribbean community. Of course, in return, we have rap music, goat curry and a far more vibrant and diverse understanding of cultures which were once alien to us. For which, many thanks
O ran y cyhuddiadau o hilioldeb: dwi ddim yn meddwl ei fod yn hiliol a bod yn onest - ond ma rhywyn yn cael ei demptio i'w alw'n hynny. Rhywbeth rhy hawdd i wneud o lawer.
In November 2009, on The Spectator website, he offered "a quick update on what the Muslim savages are up to," a brief article about the stoning to death of a 20-year-old woman in Somalia after she was accused of adultery, and the similar death of a 13-year-old the year before.
In December 2009, on his Spectator blog, Liddle referred to two black rappers, Brandon Jolie and Tinchy Stryder, who had plotted to kill Jolie's 15-year-old pregnant girlfriend, as "human filth" and said the incident was not an anomaly. He continued:

He was accused of racism after his comments, to which he replied that his comments were not racism but were about multiculturalism. In March 2010 the Press Complaints Commission upheld a complaint against Liddle because he had not been able to prove his claim about the crime statistics. After the publication of London crime figures in June 2010, The Sunday Telegraph suggested Liddle was largely right on some of his claims, but that he was probably wrong on his claims about knife crimes and violent sex crimes.
In January 2010, the Mail on Sunday and The Observer drew attention to allegedly racist and misogynist comments posted under the username "monkeymfc"—a name Liddle has used—on Millwall Online, a fan club web forum with no official connection to the Millwall Football Club. Liddle at first attributed some of the comments to opposition fans logging in under his name to embarrass him. He later admitted he had written some of the posts that were being criticized, including one in support of the BNP excluding Black and Asian people from the party. Another post, in which he joked about not being able to smoke at Auschwitz, led to his being forced to explain what he meant in the Jewish Chronicle.
The Guardian reported on 8 January 2010 that the expected purchase of The Independent by Alexander Lebedev, a Russian billionaire, would be followed by the appointment of Liddle as editor. Roy Greenslade wrote on 11 January that the reports were provoking a "major internal and external revolt" by The Independent's staff and readers. The stories about Liddle's posts on Millwall Online apparently further reduced the likelihood of him being offered the job. Finally, on 19 February, Stephen Brook reported that Liddle was no longer in the running for the post.
On Wednesday 20th October 2010, on the day of the first Conservative-Lib Dem Comprehensive Spending Review, Liddle wrote a heavily criticised article calling Welsh people "miserable, seaweed munching, sheep-bothering pinch-faced hill tribes" and calling for the abolition of the Welsh language channel S4C.
